TV Review: A Lackluster Emmys Production, With Wonderfully Surprising Winners

TV Review: A Lackluster Emmys Production, With Wonderfully Surprising Winners
The greatest surprise at this year's Emmys may have been two of the most powerful forces in television battling to a draw.

With a last-minute twist - "Game of Thrones" returning from a year of ineligibility to claim the Best Drama Series crown over competition including defending champion "The Handmaid's Tale” HBO knuckled its way into retaining its longstanding title as the winningest TV platform. But it shared the title with Netflix, which once again missed out on top drama or comedy honors but which picked up 23 wins - exactly as many as the longtime Emmy top dog.

It represented an odd anticlimax for a TV industry in flux, one so at odds with itself that it tended to throw off surprise wins like often-welcome sparks of inspiration. After an expected early run of comedy wins for Amazon's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" ultimately the first streaming series to have won the Best Comedy prize - the awards tended to grow more unruly.

He’s pretty demanding as a boss, but that’s understandable since he charges so much for his cake and has a very high-end clientele that demands perfection. Buddy’s already pretty hard on himself since he doesn’t enjoy sending out low-quality cakes and has even had to deal with one or two people that have dared to come

Grey's Anatomy Season 15 Key Art Puts a Big Smile on Meredith's Face — Plus, Jo Forms an 'Unexpected Alliance'

Grey’s Anatomy loves to fake us out. So, although we think we know what’s put that smile on Meredith’s face in the Season 15 key art dropped Tuesday by ABC, we can’t be entirely sure.

As you’d expect, the network’s breakdowns of the episodes that make up the series’ two-hour premiere (Thursday, Sept. 27, at 8/7c) offer little in the way of clues. The first hour, “With a Wonder and a Wild Desire” — written by showrunner Krista Vernoff and directed by Debbie Allen (Catherine) — features Grey Sloan’s doctors competing to win a new position, Mer being distracted,

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Bailey Chase

Looking at Bailey Chase you might get the impression that he’s big, he’s tough, and therefore doesn’t do a lot other than stand there and, well, look big and tough while saying only a few words. While the former is true he does in fact speak and he does it very well. In fact if you ever watch him on anything he does he’s not always the most eloquent person but he doesn’t have to be since his looks speak for him at times when his words don’t, or aren’t meant to, do the trick. In many ways he’s the
