Did You Ditch Dads? Can the Mad Men Cast Keep Mum? Best Newsroom Kiss? And More TV Qs!
1 | We have lots of Breaking Bad Qs: For one, should AMC reconsider having the actors live-tweet these final, sacred episodes? (Is it adding anything to the viewing experience beyond taking us out of the viewing experience?) Next, is the biggest mystery of Sunday’s episode how Walt managed to keep his shirt and jacket so clean after the big desert standoff (during which he was practically rolling on the ground at one point)? And were you one of the eagle-eyed viewers who spied Walt’s missing pants – from the pilot! – as he rolled the barrel through the desert?
2 | How exactly did Ray Donovan‘s Abby go from angrily demanding that Avi leave her house to, moments later, offering to make her hubby’s henchman scrambled eggs? And did anyone else miss Dr. Erica Hahn while watching Brooke Smith’s Frances deal with the gunshot wound?
3 | Did the Dexter writers see the promotional materials touting that “a storm is coming” and think they had to literally integrate one into the plot of the final season?
4 | Which long-awaited Newsroom finale kiss was more satisfying: Will/Mac or Don/Sloan? And if behaving like Will and Mac is the way to true love, then why don’t the leaders of warring factions in civil wars end up married more often?
5 | We love Boardwalk Empire as much as the next bootlegger, but don’t you think it’s high time the series set an end date so it could could go gracefully? We’re thinking two more rounds, max. #sixseasonsandamovie
6 | Considering Devious Maids‘ Valentina was desperate enough to go to fashion school that she considered selling one of her eggs, why is she suddenly so eager to throw away her dream and run off to Africa with Remi, a guy who up until a couple weeks ago didn’t even know her last name?
7 | Let us get this straight – Super Fun Night stars Aussie Rebel Wilson as an American, and now it’s cast Aussie Jacki Weaver as her mother? Why not just let them all be Australian, already?!
8 | TVLine reader Bandit77, about the Under the Dome finale: “Why would aliens pick a town that is this stupid?” And we want to know, did the show airing the night after Breaking Bad make you feel for Dean Norris and almost wish, for this fine actor’s sake, that Big Jim didn’t survive to be in Season 2?
9 | Breaking Pointe isn’t going to give us an Allison/Jonathan break-up scene/conversation? And didn’t Ronnie’s toast – which started off as a tribute to his pals’ performances in Cinderella – turn into kind of a downer, as he focused on how his injury kept him out of the show?
10 | Why did NBC bother to air the entire season of low-rated Siberia only to finish with a cliffhanger that offered absolutely no insight or explanation about the freaky goings-on the “contestants” had been experiencing? Heck, even a black screen with 30 seconds of text explaining “what happened next” would’ve been more satisfying, no?
11 | As pointed out by Rolling Stone: Given the new split-season swan song, do you think the Mad Men cast be able to keep mum on the series finale for a full year, from the time they film it until it airs?
12 | Did Sleepy Hollow prove that few things are scarier than a headless (and thus aimless) man letting rip with a semi-automatic weapon? And is this Fox show going to be the Once Upon a Time of the occult?
13 | Given the extreme level of awkwardness between Booth and Brennan while working the murder case in the Bones premiere, didn’t it seem like the episode picked up the morning after Booth called off the engagement and not three months later? And as hokey as the tie-in may have been, doesn’t it seem right that conspiracy theorist Hodgins would DVR Sleepy Hollow? Lastly: Are David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel visibly having a very good time with the upcoming wedding, or what?
14 | Any other New Girl viewers love Jess’ disheveled sexy sari look?
15 | On The Mindy Project, do you think all of the talk about Pastor Casey’s family history of heart disease may foreshadow how they will write off the departing guest star? And James Franco’s “Dr. L” is totally gonna hook up with Danny’s sexually frustrated ex Christina, right?
16 | Based off her hilarious scene-stealing as civilian administrator Gina in the Brooklyn Nine-Nine premiere, could you imagine Chelsea Peretti scoring a Supporting Actress Emmy nod next year?
17 | Did you also have to turn off Dads before the episode ended? And what fraction of its 5.6 million total viewers will the series shed in Week 2: 10 percent? 50 percent? More?
19 | Didn’t the Suits finale make you crave more Jessica/Donna and Jessica/Rachel scenes?
20 | Do we all agree that X Factor judge Paulina Rubio brings nothing to the panel? And wouldn’t the Simon Cowell of 2003 be totally mortified watching the Simon Cowell of 2013 praise incredibly stiff (and barely talented) Andrew Scholz for his “charisma” and “charm” simply because the kid had the kind of torso that enviably fills out a plaid shirt?
22 | For being a pageant coordinator, wasn’t Big Brother‘s GinaMarie surprisingly terrible at answering the jurors’ questions on the season finale?
23 | Are you shocked that Project Runway‘s Ken made it through a real person challenge without insulting or upsetting his client?
