The second televised debate in the race for governor is Monday. Democrat Anthony G. Brown and Republican Larry Hogan have given a number of clues about what to expect. Here are five things to keep in mind while watching: How many times does Hogan pound his bread-and-butter themes about a lackluster economy? Some of Hogan's oft-used phrases about Maryland's financial health include "40 consecutive tax increases," "mass exodus of businesses and families" and "8,000 businesses killed.

The television is being revolutionized. Last year, consumers saw high-definition digital TV become the standard in homes across the nation. And now 3-D TVs are for sale. The next step may be a moving television set. A coalition of broadcasters and other companies are putting the finishing touches on new technology that would bring digital television directly to cell phones, laptops and gadgets embedded in automobiles. The mobile devices would receive TV signals, not Internet video you can watch now. The new technology is being tested in the Washington-Baltimore area and in several other regions across the country.

Nothing has focused as much attention on the Supreme Court since the 2000 Florida election recount case as last week's arguments over the constitutionality of President Obama's health care act. The outcome, expected this summer, will hang ominously over this year's presidential campaign until then, and beyond. Already the radio and television airwaves, the Internet, newspaper accounts and commentary are filled with descriptions of the exchanges between the lawyers arguing pro and con before the justices who will decide the fate of the controversial law. Most of these observations are second-hand, based on transcripts and on audio recordings only fairly recently permitted, because television cameras are barred.

The most important TV moment of 2013 didn't even happen on television. It came on Feb. 1 when Netflix made all 13 episodes of season one of “House of Cards” available online for its subscribers. Social media and the Internet lit up the next two weeks with personal accounts of subscribers “binge-viewing” the Baltimore-made political thriller starring Kevin Spacey - fans streaming one episode after another until they had their fill. Given that binge-viewing had been going on for years with DVDs, and that media habits started more than a half-century ago don't end overnight, it would probably be an overstatement to call 2013 the year appointment television died.

JEFF Greenfield, one of the moderators of Monday's big industrywide violence-on-TV conference in Beverly Hills, noted rTC that depictions of violence in Greek tragedy occurred off stage.The tragedy of American entertainment, as in American life, is that violence is front and center. It is everywhere, it seems, and -- while our elected officials are unwilling to take a tough stand on gun control and other lobbyist-sensitive issues that might have a direct effect on curbing violence -- the rallying cry of the hour is to stem the flow of it in our entertainment.
