Is a Bad Alliance Forming? Who's Reliving Early 'Chair'? Was Clint's Shtick a Miss? And More Qs!
We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including True Blood, White Collar, Gossip Girl and The Good Wife!
1 | Really, General Hospital? It only took you 22 years to fix the Duke recast/Gregory Beecroft mess? We welcome Ian Buchanan back, for sure, but good luck explaining how and why Jonathan Paget snowed Anna back in the day.
2 | Can True Blood, moving forward, give us more of the Lafayette we saw in the finale (his running commentary during Maurella’s birthing bonanza was priceless) and less of the possessed demon we were stuck with for most of the season? Also, Sam shifting from fly to human while inside Rosalyn — best True Blood death ever?
3 | Was the final scene of this week’s Hell on Wheels enough to put you off pork products for quite a while?
4 | Did the way Mike was holding his gun at the end of Breaking Bad make you think, just for a minute, that he’d finished the work that Walt had started? Also, that knowing glance Skyler and Jesse exchanged — do you think it foreshadowed some sort of secret partnership to take down Walt?
5 | Do you kinda wish The Newsroom had saved Jim and Maggie’s first kiss for a time when she wasn’t going to go running back to Don?
6 | Everyone knows Bachelor Pad is Ground Zero for idiocy, but wasn’t it delicious watching its residents self-destruct during a simple spelling-bee challenge presided over by a panel of aghast schoolkids?
7 | Isn’t it a pity that Sabrina Bryan, the “Viewer’s Choice” contestant on Dancing With the Stars, won’t get to reprise her chemistry with Mark Ballas? No disrespect to the former pair’s respective current partners — Louis van Amstel and Bristol Palin — but Sabrina-Mark is the only possible team from that quartet that would stand an actual shot at mirrorball glory.
8 | White Collar‘s photo shoot scene: The most hilarious thing the show has ever done?
10 | How did Pretty Little Liars‘ Mona get out of the psych ward?! Is it really as easy as putting on a nurse’s outfit? Lax security, much?
11 | Is this FX’s real American Horror Story?
12 | Damages is going to resolve the “Did Patty try to have Ellen killed?” mystery by the Sept. 12 series finale, right?
13 | Wouldn’t it be nice if — just once — So You Think You Can Dance‘s Nigel Lythgoe gave the “It’s America’s favorite dancer” schtick a rest during his critique of sweet-but-overmatched animator Cyrus? And speaking of Cyrus, could it have been any more obvious that Mandy Moore basically choreographed his and Melanie’s routine to mask/mute his weaknesses as a dancer?
14 | Who else tuned in to Style’s Gossip Girl repeats this Wednesday strictly to catch the start of Chuck and Blair’s love story? And did Season 1′s Thanksgiving episode make you sad about what’s become of Rufus and Lily?
15 | Is this the best thing to happen to New Jersey since they put an IKEA off exit 13A?
16 | The Good Wife is no stranger to pushing the envelope with sex scenes, but oh my, were you a tiny bit taken aback by how steamy/scandalous this promo is?
17 | What say you, Awkward fans: Should Jenna pick Jake, Matty, or pull a Kelly Taylor and choose herself? And who knew that Jenna’s parents could break our hearts like that?
18 | Melissa’s dress on Project Runway was definitely a showstopper, but nary a comment on the puckering and side boob, judges? And to borrow a line from Mommie Dearest: “Why can’t Dmitry…get the RESPECT…that he’s…ENTITLED TO?!?!”
19 | Why do the surgical masks on Grey’s Anatomy fit so much better than the ones on Saving Hope? Does ABC have a budget to have theirs custom-tailored?
20 | Someone remind us: Did Victor Maitland’s righthand man Zack survive the original Beverly Hills Cop? Because Jonathan Banks is now free for the prospective follow-up TV series…
21 | Did Clint Eastwood’s Republican convention shtick with the empty chair read better on paper? Because in practice… oof.
