Did Voice Champ Play It Safe? Is Burn Notice Hot Again? Did Piers Morgan Offend? And More Qs!
1 | Could it possibly be that Mad Men‘s awkward-slash-creepy Glen has turned out to be almost kinda cool? Did Sally’s boarding school “pals” give you traumatic flashbacks to Blair and Serena? (Did you spot young Chuck from Pushing Daisies as the “Blair”?) And have we really learned all there is to know about Bob Benson (or whatever his real name is)?
2 | Did Falling Skies slightly overestimate how much the death of Crazy Lee, while tragic, would affect viewers? Or did Pope’s reaction drive it home enough for you? Also: Is Anne nuts, or is that in fact one freaky baby?
3 | Considering that four episodes in, The Killing‘s Mama Dips clearly knows the identity of the voice filming Kallie’s tape — and seeing how pregnant Tiffany confirmed the person who made her video is Mills — doesn’t it seem as though the child porn angle won’t ultimately lead Linden and Holder to the identity of the killer? (Like, it can’t be that easy, right?) And 10 bucks says Holder adopts, fosters or takes in Bullet by the end of the season, yes?
5 | Was Switched at Birth‘s closing scene, with Angelo, Regina and Bay dancing, the first time you thought, “Yeah, I can see how these three could be family”?
6 | Didn’t ABC’s Mistresses promo — which aired during The Bachelorette and showed Savi announcing her impending motherhood and receiving the paternity-test results – completely undercut the drama of that evening’s installment?
7 | How did the purity ring belonging to Teen Wolf’s virginal lifeguard manage to stay so pristine even though he (and his chair, and the pool deck) were covered in blood?
8 | Is there any possible (good) reason why Mikey was checking out his own abs in this screengrab from The Bachelorette? And did you love the extended footage of Jersey Shore couple Manny and Jan celebrating their 38th wedding anniversary with Des and James’ Atlantic City date? Or should the producers have used that time to show all of the guys (aka Juan Pablo) in the swimsuit portion of the Mr. Bachelorette pageant?
9 | On the Voice finale, why did Blake Shelton pick such a creepy, age-inappropriate song for his duet with Danielle Bradbery? And were you disappointed that Bradbery managed to win Season 4 without making a single risky song choice or arrangement? Or do you respect that she and her coach recognized what’s in her wheelhouse and played to her strengths?
10 | Dear Pretty Little Liars: When you’re looking to a bird for answers, isn’t that a pretty good sign that your mythology has become unwieldy? And was Aria wearing those trendy high-heeled sneakers during her sexy martial arts lesson? If so, why?!
11 | What was with Twisted‘s weird hairbrush scene?
12 | Does it make us old that we worried about scratched corneas during So You Think You Can Dance‘s cool “playing with sand” routine? And are Makenzie Dustman, Jasmine Harper, Nico Greetham and Tucker Knox already at a disadvantage because they drew Stacey Tookey’s uninspired contemporary routine on Top 20 Announcement Night?
13 | While intrinsically amusing, wasn’t Jimmy Kimmel’s “(I Wanna) Channing All Over Your Tatum” video just “Lonely Island Lite,” and minus a full third of the wit?
14 | Were you led to grab a Kleenex during Stephen Colbert’s emotional tribute to his late mother?
15 | Were you shocked to realize that James Gandolfini was only in his 30s when he started playing The Sopranos‘ mob boss? And how unbelievably tacky was it of Piers Morgan’s CNN show to use successive clips of Tony suffering anxiety attacks as its b-roll in covering Gandolfini’s death?
16 | Didn’t Danny Pudi seem completely in his element on the Hot In Cleveland live show? (Take note, SNL!)
17 | Is it possible that General Hospital‘s Sean didn’t actually shoot Olivia, and that the mysterious new Ava Jerome is somehow responsible? Also, why make Michael and Kiki cousins?! Way too much (icky) chemistry there.
18 | Did Burn Notice bum you out when Michael shaved away his rugged beard? Did we spy black nail polish on Adrian Pasdar’s character? (Is that en vogue for South American crime lords?) And is this final season shaping up as one of the tightest, sharply written ones in recent memory?
19 | On Hannibal, did your jaw drop for an instant when Dr. Du Maurier referred to Hannibal’s “pattern”? Also, did Dr. Lecter really drive Will to Minnesota from Maryland? Were you relieved that none of the main characters wound up as the main course at the end of the season? And is anyone else kinda wanting Will to end up (free and) with Beverly?
20 | Forget Once Upon a Time in Wonderland — how long until ABC orders a spin-off of the NBA Finals?
21 | Can anyone figure out what the hell is the point of ABC’s new This Week promos where George Stephanopoulos leaves an interview in progress to get a muffin from a cafeteria?
