1 | Smash is obviously on the path toward “redeeming” self-absorbed, drug-addicted, obnoxious Jimmy, but after he took the stage high as a kite (leading to a mid-performance injury to Karen) and later chewed out the entire cast and crew (screaming “I’m the only one that did anything anyway!”), won’t the writers’ efforts inevitably be a case of too little too late?
2 | Do Once Upon a Time‘s Peasant Regina and Scandal‘s Homeless Huck share a hairdresser? Speakings of the former show, Dear Snow White: If you don’t at least take out the Evil Queen’s kneecap with an arrow upon seeing that she murdered an entire village, when do you use your bow?
3 | So let us get this straight: Mad Men‘s Peggy accepts a lift home from from Don and Megan following the the Ad Club Awards and they don’t show us the ride? To be a fly on the wall of that Coupe de Ville.
4 | Game of Thrones‘ Jon Snow sure is a fast learner, isn’t he? And if there are caves warm enough to strip naked north of the wall, why do the wildlings insist on living in tents in the snow?
5 | As cool as the twist with Cary was, did any Good Wife fans really think Alicia would arrange a rendezvous with Will in the house her kids call home?
7 | Did The Following‘s Ryan really need a big kitchen knife to open a measly plastic bag?
8 | How sweet (and oddly romantic) was New Girl‘s unexpected flashback of a much heavier Schmidt bumping into Cece at Clyde’s Bar and being so flummoxed that he could only ask her if she liked DVDs?
9 | How are we feeling about Awkward‘s new couple, Jake and Tamara? Does the idea of T finally getting a good guy, coupled with their crazy energy, outweigh the bizarreness of the pairing?
10 | Matthew Gray Gubler never directs any garden-variety Criminal Minds episode, does he? Like, did even Hannibal Lecter watch this week’s episode and get the creeps? And then they cap it off with a huge “Awwwww” of a Maeve cameo!
11 | Not to belabor a point, but is Arrow‘s Felicity one of TV’s most entertaining characters? (And wasn’t the graphic emblem on her shirt almost Superman-like?) Also, the Sam “Flash Gordon” Jones wig aside, didn’t Arrow do a pretty good job of making Flashback Oliver look boyish and non-chiseled — almost, gasp, doughy?
12 | Nashville‘s Will-Gunnar kiss: total surprise or saw-it-coming-from-a-mile-away? (We swear, we almost put a question into this column weeks ago about whether Will was playing for the other team — or at least both teams.) On that note…
13 | If American Idol really wants to give a jolt to its ratings for the last few weeks of Season 12, shouldn’t it stop considering J.Lo as a replacement for Mariah, and instead swap out Randy Jackson for this week’s brash, goofy, opinionated mentor Harry Connick, Jr.? (That’s change we can believe in…and set our DVRs for!)
14 | Show of hands, The Americans fans: Who was surprised/relieved both Nina and Claudia made it out of the finale alive?
15 | Has Big Bang Theory undone all the progress it made with Raj by saddling him with a precious, foo-foo dog? And can Professor Proton move into the guys’ building? (On the first floor, of course.)
16 | Do you think Grey’s Anatomy newbie Lauren will, ahem, “Google” Arizona proper before the season’s over? Who else let out a “whoa…” when Bailey’s obsessive-compulsive project was revealed? And are you having a tough time picturing admittedly douchey Chest Pecwell as a violent person, let alone one who beats on women?
17 | Scandal‘s James sure lucked into a nice little “get” there for his first on-camera gig, eh? But what happened to Liv’s stance that she can’t rob America of a great president to sate her own heart?
18 | Anyone catch So You Think You Can Dance Season 8 winner Melanie Moore in the ensemble of Kate Hudson’s performance of “Uptight (Everything’s Alright)” on Glee? And if so, don’t you wish she’d gotten just a smidge more airtime?
19 | Did the random pedestrian on Elementary really call the rude guy who walked into her a “dildo”? So odd, right?
20 | Why is eye-gouging — as seen on The Following all season and Hannibal this week — the latest go-to embellishment for fictional serial killers? And doesn’t it seem odd that a murderer as meticulous as Lecter would leave a drawing of his latest victim out in the open, where anyone could find it?
