But not so much if, like me, you are a lover of documentaries, someone who revels in the pleasures of the nonfiction film.

"Glee" fans may appreciate the special tribute to the late star Cory Monteith at the Emmys on Sunday, but at least one group isn't so happy. That would be the family of Jack Klugman, the actor who starred in two big 1970s hits, "The Odd Couple" and "Quincy, M.E.," and who died last December. Klugman's son Adam is calling out the Emmy organizers for extending a special honor to Monteith -- the Canadian actor who died in July of heroin and alcohol poisoning at age 31 -- while tossing his father into the routine "In Memoriam" reel that will include many lesser-known actors and behind-the-scenes personnel.
