Emmy Watch: 'Arrow' stunt coordinator breaks down Arrow vs. Deathstroke, reveals his dream fight sequence

Leading up to the June 20 deadline for Emmy voters to submit nomination ballots, EW.com is featuring interviews with some of the people whose names we hope to hear when nominations are announced on July 10.

When The CW decided to take on a comic book show with Arrow, we never imagined that the stunts would be even half as good as they’ve ended up being. And no fight was more impressive than the long-awaited battle between Arrow and Deathstroke in the season 2 finale. Entertainment Weekly has named it one of the year’s 50 Best TV scenes.

Cutting back and forth between present day and Oliver’s time on the island, this fight added a layer of complexity that we’d never seen on the show before. And that complexity came from a lot of hard work. We chatted with stunt coordinator JJ Makaro to talk about how they created this fight (and what he wants to do next season) below: READ FULL STORY

Julia Collins on her record-breaking 'Jeopardy!' run, the upcoming category she would've aced

On Monday, Julia Collins’ 20-game Jeopardy! winning streak came to an end when she bet everything on a Final Jeopardy clue that read: “The New England writer who in 1999 became the last person to win an Oscar for adapting his own novel as a screenplay.” Collins guessed Michael Chabon, when the correct answer was John Irving.

Chuck Lorre has apologized for 'Two and a Half Men'

Chuck Lorre has owed us all an apology for a while — and he knows it.

At Sunday’s Television Academy Honors, which recognize television that generates awareness regarding social issues, Lorre was honored for an episode of Mom that focuses on Allison Janney’s character, an alcoholic who falls off the wagon and tries to repair her life. As Lorre accepted the award, he poked fun at his mega-successful sitcom Two and a Half Men.

According to Variety, Lorre jokingly told the crowd, “To do a show about people trying to redeem their lives and to salvage and repair the damage they’ve done — for me, it’s an opportunity to apologize for Two and a Half Men.”

But is it enough of an apology? We’ll let you decide that one.
