Question: Love your column and hope you could shed some light on an issue for me. As I understand it, TV shows/actors submit one episode of what they feel is their best work (that season) for Emmy consideration. Is this true? If so, don't you think the criteria should require a greater sample size since one episode, no matter the quality, does not necessarily tell the story of an entire season? —Charles

The Bridge's Ted Levine: "The Killer Is More Hannibal Lecter Than Jame Gumb"

In this week's episode of FX's The Bridge, viewers finally learn what happened to Sonya's (Diane Kruger) sister years ago, and about the "mistake" related to the case that brought Sonya and Hank (Ted Levine) together.

"It's an interesting past, these two, in the way that they met, and it is a lot to be revealed," Levine tells TVGuide.com. "He bears a tremendous amount of regret concerning that thing, and it changed his perspective on a number of things, on justice and retribution. Knowing Sonya and having sort of been thrust into this relationship with her under these circumstances, it's kind of changed him."

Inside FX's Fascinating New Mystery The Bridge

At first glance, FX's new drama The Bridge seems like a tough sell: a brusque female lead on the autism spectrum, yet another serial killer wreaking havoc and a setting in which nearly half the dialogue has to be in Spanish with English subtitles.

FX's The Bridge Is More Than Your Average Serial Killer Drama

FX's The Bridge looks, sounds and feels like another "Important with a capital I" show (think Breaking Bad, Homeland, The Americans), but like the best of this breed of cable shows, its entertainment value trumps whatever message it's trying to convey. The message is still there, of course — in this case, involving murder, corruption and cultural prejudices along the U.S./Mexican border — but the issues are wrapped up in an easily digestible format that relies on characters rather than lessons to draw viewers in.

Battlestar Galactica "Save the...

Battlestar Galactica "Save the attitude for someone who cares," Starbuck says to Kat — right before Kat's cannon explodes. Yeah, and save the "fracking," too, OK? I just want to say once again that I hate the whole "frack" thing. It's a distracting holdover from the original show, and it's not even a necessary one, no matter how many other fans insist on using it. There. Rant over. Just that rant, I mean. You guys know I love this show, and this was yet another great episode: Roslin's memories of Baltar making out with Number Six, the whole Baltar-Number Six drama in the present, Sharon's baby being a hair away from being aborted and then Baltar's discovery that its blood could be used to cure Roslin's cancer, etc. But the best thing about Galactica is that it's always avoided the trap other sci-fi shows fall into: that of so much going on that there's no room for character developmen read more
