Why Did Glee Skip a Tune? Does Good Wife Need New Love? Bad Girls Message? And More TV Qs!

Dramatics, Your HonorWe’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, Girls, Scandal, The Following and New Girl!

1 | Good Wife spoiler alert! Now that you-know- who is dead – sniff, sniff – should the show (finally) split up Alicia and Peter and bring in a new love interest (in due time, of course) for the lady lawyer?

2 | Since The Walking Dead’s Daryl got so pissed off when Len suggested he was messed up over not just a woman but a very young woman, are we supposed to think that he thought of Beth as a love interest or a sister?

How I Met Your Mother3 | Can Girls please stop sending the message that self-absorbed, hot-and-cold Adam is somehow desirable boyfriend material?

4 | Did How I Met Your Mother‘s Robin really pick out those frilly, pink bridesmaid dresses? And is The Mother too similar to Ted? Do you really want to marry yourself?

5 | How did Bones‘ Booth know how to play “Happy Birthday” on the one-man-band contraption?

6 | TVLine reader/The Following fan Belinda asks: “How incredible yet also creepy was the way in which the actor portraying a young Joe Carroll was able to perfectly mimic James Purefoy’s voice and cadence?”

7 | Castle fans: We love us some Salli-Richardson Whitfield, to be sure, but wasn’t there simply very little “family resemblance” between her and Penny Johnson Jerald?

Being Human8 | With Being Human ending soon, who else votes for a wolfish Sam Witwer to return to Portland as a more permanent part of Grimm‘s Scooby Gang?

9 | Is there any more indisputable sign that a contestant on RuPaul’s Drag Race has gone off the deep end — and yes, Laganja, we’re talking to you — than when even airhead Adore rolls her eyes at the histrionics?

10 | So Glee‘s Blaine got into NYADA, and we didn’t get to see (or even hear about) his audition? Seriously? On a more somber note, did your heart break a bit when the camera cut to Lea Michele’s Rachel watching Puck and Quinn’s “Just Give Me a Reason,” seeing how it really should’ve been her and the late Finn giving the final performance in New Directions’ rehearsal room?

11 | Be honest: Aren’t you at least a little glad that New Girl‘s Nick and Jess broke up?IMG_00000358

12 | Was part of Justified‘s plan for Season 5 to see how many inventive ways they could kill a person? Danny’s accidental impalement, Picker’s death-by-cigarettes…

13 | Show of hands, Cougar Town fans: Who gasped — then howled with laughter — after Big Daddy Pain smashed the podium from Travis graduation ceremony over Bobby’s head?

14 | Did you catch Arrow‘s “Gail St. and Simone” nod to Birds of Prey comics scribe Gail Simone? And how has Laurel not yet figured out that her sister is the Canary, especially after their extended interaction this week? (How she managed to become a lawyer, we’ll never know.)

Mixology15 | Mixology‘s single mom simply has to be Nancy Travis’ real-life daughter or something, right?

16 | Are we really supposed to be swoon-y about Suburgatory‘s Malik and Lisa getting engaged, considering that they’re both still in high school?

17 | Couldn’t we have lived without seeing The Americans‘ Phillip — how shall we put this? — “attend to the Israeli spy’s bathroom needs”? And where does Martha telling “Jenny” about Clark’s sexual prowess rank among TV’s Most Awkward Conversations Ever?

18 | With the American Idol results show down to 30 minutes, would anyone notice if the show cut loose “mentor” Randy Jackson altogether?

19 | Which is the bigger jinx — Christian Slater, or ABC’s Tuesdays-at-10 time slot? (RIP, Detroit 1-8-7, Private Practice, Body of Proof, Lucky 7, Killer Women, Mind Games…)

20 | What exactly does Vampire Diaries‘ Tyler — who doesn’t go to school or have a job — do all day?

21 | Really, Scandal‘s Mellie? You’re giving a [spoiler] in a room just off a main White House hallway, and you don’t lock the door? Trust us, Andrew would have gladly waited the five seconds.

GMA-Kardashian-Kids22 | When did Good Morning America become Home Shopping Network? And is shilling for a Kardashian line of products really the way to maintain your position as the No. 1 morning show?

23 | Previously, we took late-night TV’s Jimmy Kimmel to task for going to the Matt Damon well too often, and cast side eye at Seth Meyers’ set. Now turning to Jimmy Fallon: Does the Tonight Show host know that he doesn’t have to serve up some zany, sure-to-be-viral moment Every. Single. Night? The bits can be amusing, sure, but at some point there’s a whiff of Desperation To Be Relevant.

    I’m actually hoping that they keep Alicia single once she leaves Peter. I think she’s a plenty interesting character without her romantic entanglements (particularly her workplace ones). It’d be nice to see a casually-dating Alicia and leave her complications in her work-life and family-life for a while.

  2. Luli101 says:

    1. I think Alicia has to become who Will’s death is going to propel her into before a love interest would be doable. Her desire to “control my own fate” has been broadsided by Peter’s scandal and now Will’s sudden death.

  3. J. Norman says:

    #15
    Yes, she looks a lot like Nancy Travis. So much so that I looked up the cast when I first watched the show.

  4. Patrick Maloney says:

    14. I can’t believe I didn’t catch that, but I did catch the shout out to John Ostrander, who I am a bigger fan of, in last week’s episode

  5. Patrick Maloney says:

    20. Being a whiny little… Baby until something interesting falls into his lap

  6. Rjrtist says:

    GMA has certainly fallen off the rails. Just a lot of fluff and no hard hitting news. It has to be close between them and Today..

  7. S. says:

    Re: Castle, oh I totally thought they didn’t look like biologically related family. Salli and Penny are both beautiful ladies and talented actresses, but Penny has a sister who’s acting named Noree Victoria who actually in the same episode as a secretary apparently. I don’t know why they couldn’t have used her. Maybe they wanted to work with Salli in particular but at least give some line about being half-sisters or something otherwise a tiny part of your brain tries to explain it in your head and can’t, esp. with that picture of what is supposedly them as kids.

  8. Cub says:

    Seriouyl Mellie? That’s TWICE now that you’ve proven that you’re the BJ queen rofl!

  9. Sims says:

    1) I would like to see Alicia and Peter’s relationship first before they break them up… I’ve been curious for five seasons about why they were together in the first place. Regardless of that though, 0 new love interests mainly because I’m sick and tired of not seeing enough of the regular cast on screen as is.

    • James Butler says:

      Why were you wondering for 5 seasons why Peter and Alicia were together in the first place? Why do people get married, in the first place. Why did they have a happy marriage before peter’s cheating? And, what else makes him a bad person?

  10. Spencer says:

    Absolutely hate all this talk about Daryl and Beth having romantic chemistry. Am I the only person on the planet who actually watches this show?? I am absolutely certain that Daryl only looks after Beth in a paternal, brotherly way and nothing more. I highly disagree with the idea that there is romantic tension between the two of them, and if it does prove in fact to be true, I will be seriously disappointed in the writers. (Keep in mind, I am not saying this because I am a super shipper of Carol and Daryl, I just believe that a sibling relationship between these two characters is important to the show.)

  11. DavidSask says:

    Good point about Tyler on VD, Jimmy Fallon is tri-hard and is doing nothing new from old show on Tonight. Adam on Girls is not redeemable ever time to move that character on. Private Practice and Body of Proof did well in that Tues. death slot so those names should not be included there!

  12. Britta Unfiltered says:

    1. Can’t they just kill Peter off?
    3. But some girls really go for that type.
    11. Oh, hell yeah.
    16. It’s weird. Does this actually happen in real life?
    17. Oh gosh, I can’t wait to see the toilet scene on The Soup next week. You know it’s happening.

  13. Ram510 says:

    8) Yes! Sam should join the cast of Grimm immediately
    13) Everything that didn’t have anything to do with Chick on Cougar Town was kind of a waste. I hope the finale is better
    15) They look like twins!!
    19) Christian Slater is cursed and ABC should’ve kept Body of Proof

  14. Autumn says:

    Sam Witwer definitely needs to return full time to Grimm. Have him come back healthy and ready to help.

  15. Liam says:

    1: Yes, yes, yes; in due time, but yes.

  16. Alia says:

    8) Yes, yes, yes! I really liked Max and Genvieve and would love to see them back on a regular or recurring basis, and Grimm would be a great fit for Sam Witwer.

    RE: Tyler on Vampire Diaries – DUH! Goes to the gym, looks at himself in the mirror, shirtless.

  18. I am really happy that dr.marnish reunited i and my lover back. dr.marnish is a rare spell caster to find and I’m glad that I met him on time to help me bring back my lover. I’ll be forever thankful.” if you need his help too you can call him +15036626930 dr.marnish based in united state

  19. Temperance says:

    20 – since he’s the heir to a lot of cash and an estate, Tyler’s probably running the finances and the property…

      A rich, young, Immortal Hybrid with dead parents….the whole ‘normal life’ ship sailed a looong time ago.
