Did Blacklist's Wig Wow You? Glee's Best Jesus? Dead Cameo? WTF, GH Wedding?! And More Qs

The Good WifeWe’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 The Good Wife, The Walking Dead, The Blacklist and The Sound of Music Live!

1 | We get that she’s wicked smart, but should Grimm cool it with the “Juliette-knows-everything-about-all-sciences” thing?

2 | Snap Good Wife poll: Do you prefer Will and Alicia as lovers, or enemies? And as great as the show has been, why make Melissa George’s otherwise savvy consultant a quirky, flighty mom-to-be?

| Were you disappointed that The Mentalist‘s Jane didn’t divine that island pal Kim was actually a Fed? Or are you of their theory that he did, and in fact manipulated his entire return to the States?

The Walking Dead| Be honest: Didn’t you — even if just for a second — think that the long, lean female zombie in The Walking Dead‘s final shot was Sarah Wayne Callies’ long-gone Lori? (P.S. It was Clara from the premiere.) And is it becoming (too great) a challenge to care about the survivors? Could it be that, after killing Dale, Shane, Lori, Andrea, T-Dog, Merle and many others — and banishing Carol — we’ve gone numb?

| What was General Hospital‘s Robin waiting for before she revealed herself at Patrick and Sabrina’s wedding? Their honeymoon? First anniversary?! And is there any sound reason to explain why Jason Thompson hasn’t been awarded all of the Daytime Emmys?

| Is Billy Gardell still on Mike & Molly?The Blacklist

| Say what you will about the Blacklist Wig, but it holds on good even when Liz is thrown from a moving vehicle, right? And didn’t the sudden appearance of Ressler’s ex-fiancée (and her obvious lingering feelings for him) seem a bit out of place within such an intense episode?

8 | Is The Goldbergs‘ Barry quickly becoming the best scene stealer on TV?

| Let us get this straight: mindyThe Mindy Project‘s Danny gives Mindy one of the sexiest, most romantic Christmas presents in TV history, and she turns around and locks lips with Cliff?! Doesn’t Danny’s dance put any Secret Santa gift you’ve ever given/gotten to shame? And did you catch Morgan’s Big Bang Theory reference?

10 | Was there a funnier sight gag on TV this week than Burt’s two-eyed wink on Trophy Wife?

11 | How relieved were you that Chicago Fire didn’t go the expected route with that Shay-on-a-bridge scene?

12 | The Voice‘s tiny the-voice-the-originals-jacquie-lee-davinapowerhouse vocalist Jacquie Lee and The Originals‘ tiny powerhouse witch Davina are totally separated at birth, right?

13 | Did Modern Family‘s Ty Burrell rightfully cinch a fifth consecutive Emmy nomination when he wiped his mouth with a housecat on this week’s especially funny installment?

14 | As much as we hate to lose Arrow‘s Malcolm Merlyn (again), how badass was Moira scaring him off with the threat of Ra’s al-Ghul?

15 | Can The Tomorrow People just be all about John, please?

16 | Are we really supposed to see the witch hunters of American Horror Story: Coven as a threat when, in a single episode, they managed to shoot two people — neither of whom was a sorceress?

17 | On NBC’s Christmas in Rockefeller Center special, what on earth was distracting the robed children “singing” behind Mariah Carey during “All I Want for Christmas Is You”?

RELATED | Spoilers for Arrow, HIMYM, Once, Good Wife, Hannibal, Scandal, Sleepy and More

18 | Will/should The X Factor‘s Alex & Sierra’s position atop the iTunes chart this week (with their gorgeous cover of “Say Something”) and Top 12 showing (“Say My Name”) be enough to buy the show a fourth season — despite its downward ratings trajectory?Sound of Music Live!

19 | If Mad Men ever needs to cast a young Don Draper, might we suggest Sound of Music Live!‘s Michael Campayno? Which live moment had you most nervous: the kids dancing on the steep stairs, or Christian Borle scampering around in a (presumably see-through) blindfold? Finally, with the ratings success of SOML, which musical should NBC take a stab at next?

20 | Which baby Jesus visual was more hilariously disturbing in Glee‘s Christmas episode: Unique giving birth in the middle of “Love Child,” or Becky standing in for Jesus’ face?

21 | Does it seem strange — and like a missed opportunity — that Alex and Jo’s relationship on Grey’s Anatomy has thus far consisted primarily of them wanting to be (but not being) together and/or dealing with his daddy issues? And didn’t that one Kepner sister look a lot like Carrie Preston of True Blood/The Good Wife/Person of Interest?

22 | On Scandal, with the memory of the last time she saw her mother so deeply ingrained, shouldn’t Olivia have recalled/made the “Marie” connection the instant she saw the no-fly alert?

23 | Did White Collar‘s Elizabeth miss her calling as an FBI agent? She’s really good at some aspects of the job….The Price Is Right

24 | Show of hands: Would you actually tune in if ABC picked up Jimmy Kimmel’s spoof The Cumberbachelor, starring (of course) Benedict Cumberbatch?

25 | Did you ever think you’d live to see the day where a contestant flashed enough derriere on The Price Is Right to constitute a “modesty blur” effect?

    WHY THE HELL IS SHE EVEN WEARING A WIG? I know that’s in all caps, but I don’t get, why the wig? To much hair, at least give her a shorter one. I saw her on Thanksgiving with shorter hair and she looks much better. No disrespect but honestly it makes her look like cancer victim in remission. If it’s plot related then get to it, if it’s supposed to make her look a certain way then fix it.
    That being said, am I the only one who wonders if Tom REALLY needs those glasses, or if there’s a camera in them? Red certainly has dropped enough breadcrumbs about Liz’s husband and while I don’t buy it all I’ve always been curious about Tom. I’m guessing Red contacted the ex, he knew Don would need someone and it seemed like a kind gesture since Red was disappearing again (at least I hope that’s all it was)

    I was probably the only one who didn’t bother with the Sound of Music. While Underwood can sing and she’s pretty, but she is NO actor, it’s like she’s trying to hard. I feel like I’m watching an actor play a role and it’s very distracting. A performance should flow and hers never does. I’ve seen her in bit parts of some movies and every time I’ve ever seen her perform on awards shows I feel like she’s concentrating more on not falling off the stage, I’m not referring to her recent mishaps with those ice-picks she calls heels.

    Two thumbs up to Phil Dunphy and Barry Goldberg who ALWAYS make me laugh!!

  3. Daisy says:

    I have a question. Why did CBS ruin The Crazy Ones by bringing in Brad Garrett. The cast was just fine and funny without him.

  4. DJ says:

    I completely gave up on The X-Factor weeks ago. Their talent doesn’t come close to the Voice anymore. The judges are getting worse. (Paulina, stick to the music.) I’m sure Simon is losing his mind having such low ratings. That being said, Alex & Sierra are remarkable. Watching them, you can tell they’re the real deal. Enough for season 4? Probably, but I know this much: when you go out looking for a superstar, 90% of the time, you fail. (Ask American Idol.)

  5. Johanna Smith says:

    21- I think there should be more Jolex scenes, they are soooo cute together!

    5. I don’t watch General Hospital but I love when you guys give praise for soap operas.and Soap actors. They’re really underrated. I did catch glimpses of this storyline though. It was almost enough to make me want to watch it.

    15. I thought the same thing after seeing this week’s episode. John’s storyline is the most interesting thing about the show right now. His character has way more depth and levels than Cara or Stephen. And I’m not even anti-Cara or Stephen. I just like John as a character and his storyline the most right now.

    18. The X-Factor has really been a trainwreck this year, and The Voice has more talent and a better formula. However, of all the singing competitions right now, I’m more likely to buy Alex and Sierra’s cd than any other contestant on any of these shows. So I think that says something and probably will save the X-Factor from cancellation.

    This week ‘s episode of Glee was hilarious! So funny. (Not offensive ). You need to lighten up and laugh a bit. That is what Glee does best. Can’t wait for the Feb 25 th return and focus shifting to NY!!!

  8. shadester says:

    GH- doesnt anyone find it insensitive that Patrick kissed robin right in front of sabrina? But i do agree he did a great job. I want them back together.
    good wife- i want will and alicia together they are soul mates but i am enjoying them as enemies as well. It sure has made the show even more interesting. I didnt think that was possible!

  9. stella says:

    Ty Burrell is the BEST part of Modern Family, he should ALWAYS win the emmy. Honestly if they had cast someone else in that role it would not be the same!
