Did Revolution Sex Satisfy? Do Girls Look Better? A Dorky Vader? Coven's True Star? And More Qs

Downton AbbeyWe’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 Girls, Revolution, The Big Bang Theory and Parks and Recreation!

1 | What are the odds that Grimm‘s Monroe and Rosalee will just elope?

2 | Who kinda wanted Dracula‘s Lady Jayne to win when she fought Grayson? (And wouldn’t she have been a better object of affection than mousy Mina?)

3 | Even if there were nothing more to Downton Abbey than Violet and Isobel’s exchanges, wouldn’t you still watch — possibly even more devotedly?

4 | Are we to believe, after watching Sherlock, that this delayed-death-via-belt-buckle is a real thing? (Asking for a friend.)

5 | Is the entire point of Gaby Hoffman’s Girls character — Adam’s homeless-looking, graveyard-littering, violently self-absorbed sister Caroline — to make the oft-maligned core characters look sympathetic by comparison?

6 | Could HBO please fast-track a half-hour Looking spin-off with nothing but Dom (Murray Bartlett) and his acerbically funny roommate Doris (Lauren Weedman) sitting on their couch talking? And speaking of the gay-centric dramedy: Doesn’t Patrick’s thudding naiveté about sex, race and relationships sometimes make it seem like he’s only been in San Francisco for eight months as opposed to eight years?

7 | How had no one come up with the brilliant Super Bowl alternative “Superb Owl” before it was introduced on The Colbert Report this week?

8 | Hart of Dixie, why did you have to finally get rid of Lynley only to replace her with an annoying kid?

President Obama Delivers State Of The Union Address At U.S. Capitol9 | Were you among the State of the Union viewers wondering (and perhaps not for the first time) what was on the table in front of House Speaker John Boehner? (Answer: An antique inkstand circa 1819.)

10 | Impetuous Revolution lovers Charlie and Connor have a lousy idea of pillow talk, no? (But Rachel’s “20 years is enough foreplay” line to/insta-striptease for Miles made up for it!) And to recap: Bret Michaels and David Schwimmer are still alive, but Steven Tyler isn’t? Lastly, TVLine reader Mbergs12 asks: “How was it that the decoy box Charlie left behind had the same lock on it as the actual diamonds? The key opened it with no problem.”

11 | As Justified‘s Joelle Carter herself asked on Twitter Tuesday night: Where’s a frying pan when Ava needs one?! And is anyone else dreading Art discovering the truth about Raylan’s role in Nicky Augustine’s assassination?Suburgatory

12 | Is it getting harder to buy Suburgatory‘s Lisa as a social outcast/insult magnet now that Allie Grant has blossomed into something of a bombshell?

13 | Did you almost think for a moment that Arrow was going to do a whole episode of salmon ladder? (How exciting for the ladies/depressing for the fellas that would have been!) And who else needed a moment to remember Laurel’s Season 1 pal Joanna?

14 | How bad did you feel for The Tomorrow People‘s Astrid when she found out she’d have to stay underground because of Stephen? And how exactly is she going to explain her absence to her parents? (But hey, at least she gets to spend her days and nights with John.)

15 | So, one day after Madonna hobbled on stage at the Grammys with a cane, she’s bumping and grinding on Miley Cyrus, cane-free, for MTV’s Unplugged? Was the cane just a prop? Is anything real anymore?!?!?

16 | Nashville fan Andrea asks: “Did Scarlett’s pill-popping give you a hint of the classic Saved By the Bell episode where Jessie gets addict to caffeine pills? ‘I have to sing… I’m so excited! I’m so excited… I’m so scared.'” Meanwhile, we want to know: After watching Juliette take so much verbal abuse from Jeff in recent weeks, how often did you play back her scathing monologue pointing out he’d lost not one but two of his best artists in a six-month period? Speaking of the unsinkable Ms. Barnes, can you believe she’s managed to make the once loathsome Avery into a completely sympathetic (and adorable) character?American Horror Story: Coven

17 | Instead of dwelling on the head-scratchers and loose ends with which the American Horror Story: Coven finale left us — Lord knows there were many! — can we instead just agree that the best part of the season was Frances Conroy’s brilliantly batty work as Myrtle Snow? OK, one loose end: Why didn’t Madison use her powers on Kyle when he was strangling her, as she did during the competition?

18 | Is The Vampire Diaries‘ Elena technically still inside of her body somewhere…?

The Convention Conundrum19 | Between the cell phone commercials and now his Big Bang Theory visit, James Earl Jones is very much out to shake up his officious, stoic image, huh? But are we really to believe Sheldon actually spent a day with the utterly goofy Star Wars vet, that it didn’t turn out to be some dream?

20 | Which Community reveal surprised you more: the return of Brie Larson’s coat check girl, or that Katie Leclerc’s hearing-impaired hottie was on the take?

21 | Now that they’re gone…. Can we all agree that Parks and Recreation‘s Chris and Ann made a terrible couple? (Translation: Ann deserves so much better.) Also: How random was it that both Community and Parks and Rec this week involved storylines about bribing assorted people to cut through red tape?

22 | On White Collar, were you surprised Rebecca didn’t jump into the water to try to escape?

23 | Hey, ‘member when splashy Super Bowl commercials actually premiered during the Super Bowl? Michael J. Fox, Cindy Crawford, Diet something…. Good times.

    James Earl Jones was fantastic in Big Bang. I laugh at his cell phone commercials every time they are on TV. If he isn’t careful he is going to become the male version of Betty White (comically adored senior citizen).

  2. A says:

    10) better question: was Monroe’s reaction to Connor and Charlie the best moment of the entire series?
    answer: totally

    11-Justified hope Art doesn’t find out it was Raylan.. mb pin it on someone else/..
    16-Nashville so glad Juliette told off Jeff someone need to.. love Oliver Hudson but can’t stand him in this role..

  4. Of course Elena is still in there and that’s the story arc for the rest of the year (to figure out what Katherine did and to get Elena back).

    #10. I was disappointed with the Charlie/Connor hookup. I felt played by NBC since they were even promoting Charlie/Bass on Facebook and Twitter, then they hook her up with his son? Why even bother promoting Charlie/Bass as a duo. The writers even still gave them moments in this episode before they went the other direction. Such as Gould staring at Charlie and Bass snapping at him and when Duncan said to Bass your plucking them awfully young these days while looking at Charlie, Bass could have quickly chimed in saying, yeah it’s not like that, instead he said nothing.
    She obviously has already begun to forgive him or else she wouldn’t bother protecting him. For all the people who say it doesn’t make sense for the storyline, I think it makes perfect sense as Miles and Bass have this constantly damaged back and forth friendship of whether they are on good terms or not. It would have made for great tv to watch how Miles and Rachel would have handled a Charlie/Bass relationship. As far as age goes, no one seems to mind other shows with couples with an age difference-once upon a time, the originals, vamp diaries, nor do they seem to mind real life couples with age difference- Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones have 22 yrs between them! Whatever, NBC pulled me and I guess that was the whole point cause it’s never going to happen now……..
    For Miles and Rachel-agree with person who said they are forced-I do tag et how she forgives Miles for torturing her/being the Butcher of Baltimore , but she doesn’t forgive Bass, he didn’t pull the trigger on Ben-Neville did (he said bring him back alive)and helicopter gunman killed Danny. Whatever, off my horse I go.

    #10 I was surprised at the comment of 20 years for foreplay, I had assumed Miles and Rachel had been lovers already and I am ready for the revelation that Charlie is actually Miles’ daughter. There have been hints at it with comments how Bass’ son is so like his dad.
