Major Crimes Creator James Duff Previews "Rules of Engagement"

Mary McDonnell

In the seventh episode of our summer long examination of identity, we actively consider that oldest of old saws, "Don't judge a book by it's cover." We are usually taught this elemental lesson in judgment when we're very young, and (for many) it begins the effort to hone the native suspicion of human nature. There are too many examples of how people have been led astray by appearances to repeat them here, but one should not have to go back very far in American history to locate tragic mistakes that occur when people form false impressions based entirely on semblance. But Major Crimes is only an hour drama on television, and not a civics lesson; many of the questions we ask have no answers... read more

The Monday Playlist: A Birth Switcheroo, Syfy Cliffhangers, a Major Complication

D.W. Moffett, Lea Thompson

Question: I, like many others, read the novel Under the Dome and was sorely disappointed with the ending. I read an article about changes that are coming to the TV version. I was glad about that and am now going to give it a try. But I also read that it may become a series instead of a 13-episode miniseries. Is that true? I'd much rather this be a miniseries as opposed to a series lasting multiple seasons. The story doesn't really lend itself well to playing out over several years. Do you know if it will continue past 13 episodes? — Beth

I cannot wait for The Good Wife season finale, especially after that hot promo! What can you tell us? — Rachael
ADAM:
Will plays a huge part in the episode, and not just because the Bad Boy of Chicago is locking lips with the Good Wife. When Will, Alicia and Diane try a case of possible election fraud on the eve of the governor's race, Will ultimately ends up with the power to determine the winner. Will he choose the powerful husband of one of his firm's partners? Or will he screw over the guy that kinda stole his girl (twice!)? That's for us to know and you to find out on Sunday.

Got any more scoop on the Once Upon a Time finale? —Michelle
