Is Younger Hookup a Bad Idea? Sense8 Fans Snub Save? Bye-Bye, JLo's Birdie? Is Fuzzy Fallon a Fail? And More TV Qs

We’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 Silicon Valley, Pretty Little Liars, Younger and Zoo!

1 | Based on exiting Silicon Valley star T.J. Miller’s scorched-earth media blitz following Erlich’s Sunday farewell, is it probably safe to say the HBO comedy’s set will be a far happier one in Season 5? And wouldn’t Jared, Gilfoyle and Dinesh be better off just ditching Richard and creating their own start-up, after all the craziness he’s put them through?

2 | After that Veep finale, doesn’t it feel like we’re being set up for a series finale where Jonah wins the party nom for President… and asks Selina to be his VP?

3 | Why did Fear the Walking Dead‘s Troy call the walkers “wasted” when that was a term Brandon, whom he’d never met, coined for zombies?

4 | When was American Ninja Warrior‘s Daytona Beach (Florida!) qualifier taped, that spectators were dressed in parkas?

5 | Is the ultimate challenge within Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge to go a week without a player ripping their spandex and (almost) mooning us?

Pretty Little Liars Alex Drake6 | On Pretty Little Liars, wouldn’t A.D. have been at least 40-percent more intimidating without that ridiculous cockney accent?

7 | Is the World of Dance stage almost too shiny/mirror-like, that it makes it hard to discern the more subtle movements? And in the wake of the show’s renewal (plus, of course, the demands of JLo’s role in Shades of Blue), TVLine reader iHeart wonders: “I guess the [already-postponed] live television production of Bye Bye Birdie won’t be happening after all?”

8 | How delightful and unexpected was iZombie‘s “Dream Lover” musical number? What other blue brains would you like to see?

Blood Drive9 | Blood Drive‘s Grace got us wondering: How practical are fishnet stockings when engaged in a violent, messy and brutally physical dystopian road race?

10 | Carmichael Show fans, which joke made you more uncomfortable during Wednesday’s episode: Joe and Cynthia being more concerned about losing Jerrod than Bobby in a mass shooting, or the fact that the police officer’s name was Greg Zimmerman (“no relation”)?

11 | How concerned are you about new Younger roomies Kelsey and Josh potentially hooking up?

12 | Doesn’t the Inhumans trailer look kind of flat for a show filmed to debut on IMAX movie screens?

13 | W8, are some Sense8 fans actually complaining about the closure-providing two-hour movie that precious few cancelled shows Zooever get…? That it’s not “enough”?

14 | Now Zoo is in on the near-future translucent smartphone forecast? When do we get ours?? And “10 years later” or not, was it a bit much to buy onetime blogger Jamie as a leather pants-clad badass who is now trained in close quarters combat?

15 | In addition to the many Battle of the Network Stars revival questions stated here: Would ABC have been more savvy to lead off with next week’s “Sex Symbols” team, if only as a blatant, flashier ratings grab? Also, that attempt to apply NFL-style, super-imposed “goal line” markers to the tug-of-war didn’t work at all, did it?

16 | Has Nashville ever portrayed a journalist who didn’t turn out to be shady? And why couldn’t Daphne’s friend just call her on the house number?

17 | So, The Night Shift is really gonna keep TC separated from the rest of the gang? Or will [Spoiler]’s death be the thing to drag him back home?

Snickers Ad18 | Has no one told Jimmy Fallon how unflattering (and against brand) his summer porn-stache is?

19 | What do we think of the Snickers spot where the surgeon left his phone inside the patient? Appetizing…?

    I have something that’s bothered me since TO finale last Friday. Why couldn’t Freya still turn so Klaus wouldn’t have to be without Hope again? She was willing to when they didn’t know if Kol would come and that way she would be immortal like her siblings. It’s what I selfishly wanted personally.

    • I thought that too, but then thought about her witch powers and how she wouldn’t have them anymore. Probably better to have them so she can figure out how to get rid the hollow?

    • Gilded Lady says:

      Or, why not have Klaus jump bodies (like je was when we met him on TVD) while Hope grows up. You can just stash the body someplace safe under a gazillion spells and wards!

  2. TV Gord says:

    Someone should clue Fallon in to the caterpillar lip. It’s ridiculous! I thought it was a joke at first, and then I thought maybe he’s auditioning for another ’70s-centric season of Fargo. No, Jimmy. No.

    8 | How delightful and unexpected was iZombie‘s “Dream Lover” musical number? What other blue brains would you like to see?…..
    yes and this is how we get a Full musical episode, along with Majors Abs having a solo number!

  4. Candace says:

    There are many things I don’t understand about the PLL finale, but the one that bothers me the most is, if A.D.’s primary motive was to find out who killed Charlotte, why did Alex allow Mona to join the team?

    • Rachae D says:

      I don’t think that was the primary motive. I thought it was to get revenge and then take over Spencer’s life because she thought she was owed. And Mona knew how to play the game better than anyone so she used her

  5. richard says:

    8. It would be a hoot if they had the blue brain of a drag queen, one like Bianca Del Rio.

  6. T.W.S.S. says:

    11. On the one hand, Josh and Kelsey hooking up seems slightly spiteful. On the other hand, I’m #TeamCharles and this could get Josh out of the way for good!

    • dan says:

      I really hate Kelsey and Josh together, it makes them seem like petty losers who are spiteful against Liza. They’ve also made Liza seem awful, like a self-serving schemer who is out for herself. Also … Kelsey seems oddly pathetic, she’s the head of a publishing company, she can afford and apartment. And she could probably get any guy she wanted, why Josh (well, he is attractive). It’s tacky to hit on a friend’s ex.

      Charles is hot, so … I don’t mind seeing more of him. I prefer Liza with Josh.

    • Shay says:

      I’m #TeamCharles too. I actually like the idea of Josh and Kelsey. I know it’s against girl code but I think they would be a hot couple and like you said it gets Josh out of the way.

  7. Donna Salvi says:

    Love the Inhumans trailer!

  8. Katie_Mead says:

    9) You watched Blood Drive, and the first question of practicality you come away with, was about fishnet tights?
    How about why, if the cars need blood for fuel, does so much of it get wasted in the televisual splatter-spray, when people are shoved under the hood, or into the side-mounted man-mincer onthe truck? Shouldn’t at least one of the sets of racers have come up with a more efficient way of gathering the stuff-of-life? OK, I know, grindhouse needs ridiculous gore, but come on!

  9. johnhelvete says:

    13) Agree completely. I get that fans always want more of a favorite TV show but a 2 hour movie to end a series “properly” is a luxury many cancelled shows never get. Plus 2 hours is more than enough time to resolve story lines regardless of how complex a show is.

  10. Television says:

    6. Pretty Little Liars, it was a horrible ending to an awesome show. The ending did NOT fit at all, mainly because the character Alex was unbelieveable, the accent was horrible and she does not seem smart enough to pull that off. And another evil twin? Disappointing.

  11. Kelly says:

    4) My guess is that it was taped in the middle of Winter, in which it still is pretty warm. It was taped at night, so that could be a factor. I’ve heard that in warm weather states, like Florida and Southern California, the locals get a little crazy when the temperature drops below 70 degrees. They’re so used to it being so warm that they forget what cold is. Here, cold is when the car door freezes overnight and you have to chip the ice off so you can get yo work. That’s cold.

  12. Kim R says:

    18. Yes!!! This! Someone please tell Jimmy that he does not have a “stache” friendly face.! He looks like he is playing a part that takes place in the ’70’s. It’s hard to take him seriously in that thing. :D

  13. Anne says:

    Zoo: I thought Jamie being a combat badass made a lot of sense. Her experience out in the woods in s2 really showed her what she could handle and I think it makes sense that she would want to try and be stronger

    • JJ in NJ says:

      Plus, 10 years is plenty of time to develop some skills. Think of the change in Sarah Connor between T1 and T2.

    • acalloffaith says:

      But Jamie was always a badass, now she just has the skills to back up her personality. Although, maybe the tight leather was a bit much depending on how old she supposedly is now…..

  14. A fan of TV says:

    1. TJ Miller’s press conduct this week made me incredibly uninterested in whatever his next project might be. What an ungracious so-and-so.

    3. Because FtWD is one of the most carelessly written dramas on TV…?

    13. You can never please everyone. The Sense8 series-ending movie will satisfy me, though.

  15. Gilded Lady says:

    13) Because of course. I still want to know of the people complaining it didn’t get more, how many subscribe and how many piggy back on another account and are bitching for something they aren’t even paying for.

    • Colleen says:

      THAT’S what keeps you up at night? I pay Netflix every month for a 2 screen plan. If I want to let my sister use one of those screens that my $ bought—especially when I barely ever get the time to use the service myself—why should that be any of your concern?

  16. Temperance says:

    13 – Some people complain about everything. To be blunt, Netflix clearly doesn’t understand what they had in sense8, why it is important to the audience, and why it’s particularly relevant now (and why it looks really bad for them to cancel they show at this moment in time). That’s disturbing, in general. And yes, we know it’s a business, and we also know that there are many great, easy ways to significantly cut the budget (as that show had a massive location budget). I’m thrilled that they are doing a wrap up, but for this type of show, common sense says they should just plan for this in all similar types of series these days. 17 – The quality of Night Shift is down this year… way down, and I actively loathe the parts that happen outside of the US

  17. 12 Yes. It maybe filmed in Imax, but till looks like s a TV show.

  18. Will says:

    I think most Sense8 fans are happy about the special but would still like to increase viewership with the hope that Netflix might be convinced to do more down the road .

    I think minority are those who reject the 2-hour special because they want a full season.

  19. Jamie says:

    13. Honestly, these fans sound ridiculous. The show was cancelled, and instead of saying, “We don’t care” to the upset fans like most networks do, Netflix decides to give the fans something. And then those fans still complain! Ugh, grow up.

  20. Magali says:

    13 – Of course I also wanted a 3rd season but I’ll take whatever I can get. So happy we are at least getting some form of a conclusion

  21. jnc07 says:

    Re 13: Having “suffered” too many shows cancelled with unresolved storylines, nevermind outright cliffhangers, I think the Sense8 fans should be thankful for what they’re getting, even if still wishing that there could be more.

    It may be wishful thinking on my part, but I feel that if TPTB see and hear plenty of gratitude THIS time, then that could make the difference in if similar closure is granted to ANOTHER show in the future.

  22. Sims says:

    11) I am so ready for them to hook up!

  23. 13. Some fans will never be satisfied. Of COURSE I’m unhappy the show has been cancelled. But if Netflix is to be believed, the numbers just weren’t there to warrant renewal. Getting closure if a wonderful gift to the fans.

  24. NS-Fan says:

    17. TC not being at the hospital is not working for me at all. Why seperate one of your main characters from interaction with the rest of the main cast? What are TBTB thinking?

  25. Marissa L says:

    2) In another time, I would’ve disagreed and said, “Absolutely not – even in a fictional world, people would never believe Americans would elect someone as dumb as Jonah to be their president.” But now…. yeah, I can see that happening. It would certainly bring the show full circle.
