If you like Once Upon a Time, you really ought to take a look at Grimm. Kind of a similar setup (fairy tales crossing into real life), but with a different focus. Although you don't have to watch the entire thing (they're in the middle of season 2 now) in order, it probably helps because the writers respect their audience enough to refer back to previous events and even to throw in the occasional "not obvious" foreshadowing. The acting talent would probably be considered middling, but doesn't detract from the experience.

I'm still watching Revolution and Last Resort, but I can't say I'd give them a glowing rec. If the DVR didn't automatically go out and record the new episodes for me, I probably wouldn't miss them.

Still loving The Walking Dead and the Wild Dogs sometimes watch that with me, but I'm not sure I could come up with any reasonable excuse to call that "family entertainment".
Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
