<I>Once Upon a Time</I> vs. <I>Grimm</i>: Will Either Fairytale Series Live Happily Ever After?

Shows with similar thematic elements that debut around the same time isn't exactly something new -- just think of 30 Rock and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, Ghost Whisperer and Medium, Lipstick Jungle and Cashmere Mafia or even this season's Mad Men wannabes Pan Am and Playboy Club. Now Grimm is appearing less than a week after Once Upon a Time and on the surface, they have one major commonality: both take classic fairytale characters and storylines and attempt to bring them into the present day. But the similarities primarily end there. Will viewers look past the promos and magazine blurbs to realize that the programs are absolutely nothing alike? Or will they be forcibly lumped together forever? And more importantly, will either last more than a season or two?

Is <I>The Secret Circle</I> the Most Quintessential CW Show Ever?

When Ringer debuted earlier this week, it was clear that the show doesn't exactly fit The CW brand, mostly it's targeted at grown-up viewers and features some actual grown-up actors, with only one spoiled rotten teen in sight. It also lacked several other key elements that we've come to expect from The CW. Fortunately for the network, their other scripted series debuting this week, The Secret Circle, is pretty much the most CW-ish show we've ever seen. Here's why:

TWoP 10: Characters Who Should Return to Their Shows

TWoP 10: Characters Who Should Return to Their Shows

Most of the time we complain about characters on shows that we just hate with a passion and hope would go far, far away. But occasionally shows could be livened up by the reappearance of an old character (and no we don't necessarily mean the dead ghost ones, Denny). Hence the reason we're pretty psyched that George Clooney finally decided to bring back his hunky Dr. Doug Ross to ER (which is the only acceptable reason for them adding on extra episodes) before the show signs off. So we've compiled another list of characters that need to return to their old posts, stat.

<i>Smallville</i> Producers are Robin the Cradle with <i>The Graysons</i>

One of the least egregiously wrong things about 1995's Batman Forever (aside from the inclusion of Seal's "Kiss from a Rose" on the soundtrack) was the fact that they didn't get Robin's origin completely wrong. Dick Grayson and his parents were acrobats in a traveling circus, and the parents were killed by a gangster. Why they were killed and by what gangster doesn't really matter, just that Batman took the orphaned boy in and taught him to fight crime, grooming the man who would one day be his successor... you know, if he doesn't get horribly killed in the line of duty first. Well, the producers of Smallville have decided that if Joel Schumacher himself can't destroy something that isn't broken, then they sure as hell can. The show's creators weren't allowed to do Batman: The Early Years, so now their successors are going to do Robin: The Beginning.
