Game Over Too Soon For Renly? Is Once Plane Crazy for Lost? Mad About Megan? And More Qs!

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, here are some queries about Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Smash, NCIS , Revenge and other shows!

1 | Before we get started here: Is everyone out of tech now? We’d hate to stress you out.

2 | How about the look that Fringe‘s Bolivia shot Lincoln Lee? Glad we got to see the badass blush before the intra-universe bridge closed. And surely that incredible Walter/Walternate scene will get John Noble the Emmy love he deserves, right?!

3 | Raise your hand if you weren’t quite ready for the death of Game of Thrones‘ supercute King Renly, especially at the hands of Lost‘s Smoke Monster?

4 | How risky was it for The Good Wife producers to let the audience hear the deep, distinctive voice of Kalinda’s husband before actually casting the role? What happens if they hire Pee-wee Herman?

5 | Were you surprised that Once Upon a Time‘s Pinocchio/whale special effects were as good as they were? And did you catch the Oceanic Airlines plane that roared over young Pinocchio’s head after his trip through the wardrobe?

Mad Men Jessica Pare| Does Matthew Weiner really think the Megan character is interesting/fascinating/complicated enough to justify all the screen time she’s stealing away from Peggy and Joan?

| Did we hear it wrong or did How I Met Your Mother‘s Barney say that Quinn makes $500,000 per year stripping?

| 2 Broke Girls‘ idea of the New York City subway system is skewed, right? Making people jump over a large gap underground after evacuating a car? Not gonna happen. Also, maybe they should have invested in a cooler for those cupcakes?

| Was there a sweeter, more quietly romantic admission of love anywhere on TV this season than the one Gossip Girl‘s Dan offered to Blair this week? And while we’re always up for a good scheme-filled episode, does anyone actually understand what the heck is going on between Diana, Jack, Bart (?!), Chuck, Nate, Lola and Serena?

10 | Bones‘ Emily Deschanel: Prettier than ever since becoming a momma?

11 | Now that Smash‘s Derek has bedded both Ivy and Rebecca, there’s really no way anyone can be rooting for an endgame where he winds up with Karen, right? And how about that magical train that runs between NYC’s Grand Central Station and Boston!

12 | Was the RuPaul’s Drag Race reunion show a little too staged for your liking?

13 | Which Voice fans out there wanted to swat Adam Levine’s pretty head when he explained he’d tilted his votes 60-40 for Tony Lucca over Katrina Parker in the semifinals, mostly because of his “bromance” with the former Mickey Mouse Clubber?

14 | Wait, NCIS‘ Tony has bikini photos of Ziva? How? From when?

15 | Couldn’t you watch a whole episode of NCIS: LA‘s Deeks trading zingers with Hawaii Five-0‘s Danny? Oh, and just what sort of boudoir “costumes” do you think Kensi was referring to…?

16 | Any theories as to where Quinn has been on Glee? Out-of-state rehab facility? Wheelchair dance camp? And can we all agree that the show’s rendition of Florence + the Machine’s “Shake It Out” far surpassed Smash‘s bat mitzvah version?

17 | To the few who watched (sadly): How about that shocker of an ending on The L.A. Complex?

18 | Anyone else find Jimmy Iovine’s freakout over Jessica Sanchez’s American Idol minidress a little weird when it wasn’t all that much more revealing than those worn by fellow teens Skylar Laine and Hollie Cavanagh?

19 | Were those white flakes superimposed onto some of this week’s Revenge scenes on par with the Ringer boat ride? Also, if the Graysons were keeping such a close eye on David Clarke in jail, how’d they let all of his notebooks — including the one he was writing in just before his death! — get into Nolan’s hands?

20 | How awesome was the Happy Endings reference on New Girl? And how perfect was the casting of “Asian Jess”?

21 | Can we get, ASAP, a special Modern Family episode featuring Young Phil Dunphy “wind blowing through my perm, blasting some Hall & Oates, maybe horsing around with my Mr. Microphone”?

22 | Wasn’t it all the more delightful seeing Survivor imbecile Kat get her tearful comeuppance at Tribal Council just minutes after boasting to Jeff Probst that “blindsides are always fun and exciting”?

23 | How did you fare on the two polls we ran weeks ago about last night’s Grey’s Anatomy? Also, how is it that Eric Dane, who plays Mark, looks 10 years younger than he did at the start of this season?

24 | Parks and Recreation‘s Andy re-enacting the pie incident on perpetual loser Jerry’s face was so wrong it was perfectly right, yes? (Jim O’Heir told us they did about 12 takes!)

25 | Big Bang Theory‘s Amy Farrah Fowler as a Star Trek nurse: TV’s best sight gag in recent months? And who was hoping Penny would actually surprise Leonard with a “yes” at the end?

26 | Doesn’t Siri sound like she’s about to smack Zooey Deschanel when she asks if it’s (obviously) raining?

  • #4: I don’t think so
    #10: I so agree with this! While watching the last few episodes, every time she graces the screen, it’s just breathtaking. Not that she’s not pretty before, but there’s something different, she’s really more beautiful after being pregnant :D

  • Actually I wanted to kiss Adam more than swat him. Clearly you have some bizarre dislike for Tony Lucca. Don’t really get it, but to each their own I guess.

  • I love all the LOST references they keep slipping into Once Upon a Time. Big Bang Theory – I am not sure what the writers are doing with Amy. The woman is an award winning biologist who dressed in a Star Trek Nurse Chapel outfit to play doctor with a man who will not touch her sexually? I hope Sheldon and Amy get together and product offspring. Watching them raise kids would be a lot funnier than watching them never touch.

  • Yes, Emily Deschanel has gotten more beautiful since having baby Henry, if that is possible. I saw an interview with her and Kathleen Turner. Can’t wait to see A Perfect Family. I also love seeing the change of her character on Bones now that she is in love with Booth, although she has been from the beginning, and a mother. She is doing quirky things such as hanging her head out the window to get cell phone reception. Looking forward to season 8.

  • 3. Smoke monster! Hahaha, Great comparison!

    6. I think Weiner does think that, yes. I, however, do not. Joan is adjusting to life as a working single mom, and I want to see more of that. I also need to know where she and Roger stand now that they are both single, and why isn’t he doing more to help out with the raising of his child? I know Joan isn’t into the idea of being a kept woman, but he’s got responsibilities with that kid. And I feel like I just have no idea what’s happening with Peggy at this point in her life. Or any of the characters other than Don and Megan. I’ve given up on the idea that Mad Men will take a 5th Emmy. It will get nominated for sure, but I’m starting to think best drama is going to Game of Thrones or Homeland this year thanks to all this Megan nonsense. And Homeland is the show that deserves it anyway.

    26. I freaking hate that commercial. All the Siri commercials creep me out with the way people talk to it like it’s a real person. And this is coming from someone who has conversations with her cat. The Zooey Deschanel one is particularly bad, especially with the rain question. I hope someone shoots me if I ever go to an electronic device to look up current weather after looking out a window and seeing what the current weather is.

  • Totally disagree with Glee doing a better rendition of “Shake It Out” than Smash. Katharine McPhee’s version is far better than Glee and Flo.

    And I say this as THE biggest Glee fan ever!

  • 14. The photos are from “Judgement Day Part 1″ (S9 E18), when Tony and Ziva are in charche of Jenny’s protection in LA.
