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 Orphan Black, Game of Thrones, The Killing and Burn Notice!
1 | Why is no one talking about why Orphan Black‘s Sarah left in the first place? And who is Kira’s father?! Oh, and is it Spring 2014 yet?!
2 | What was bloodier: Game of Thrones‘ Red Wedding massacre or the subsequent heated discussion between viewers who have read the books (and were prone to spoil what’s coming) and those who hadn’t?
3 | How odd was it to see The Killing‘s Linden so darn smiley? (At least for the first hour or so.) We know it was a moment of symbolism or foreshadowing or something, but what the heck was with those cows? Also, how exactly did Linden put two-and-two together and connect little Adrian’s drawing to the marshes where the bodies were dumped? Was it the added detail of those abandoned buildings in his latest bedroom sketch or did her visit to the bloody crime scene set off a lightbulb?
4 | Who had “Sterling Cooper & Partners” in their Mad Men office pool? And which character do you wager will next ingest/inhale an illicit drug? While we’re on the topic of what may come next, is there any way that the Megan’s-already-dead theory holds water?
5 | If Revolution‘s Aaron can turn on the tower’s operating system — which is run on his old code — why can’t he shut it back down? And was the show’s rapid-fire, almost-silent recap at the start of the season finale awesome or too similar to Supernatural‘s famous “The Road So Far” segment?
6 | Will Mistresses‘ April ever go on that date with Cute Divorced Dad? Or is it going to be a case of “two last-minute cancellations and you’re out”?
7 | Wait, “Wasting All These Tears” — which The Voice‘s Season 3 champ Cassadee Pope premiered on this week’s results show — is classified as country? Also, is it possible that Blake Shelton’s “play it safe/predictable” style of coaching is finally starting to backfire, or was it an inevitability that he’d finally lose a team member prior to the semifinals? And did anyone else find Adam Levine adorable when he hugged saved contestant Amber and could only say “I love you” over and over?
9 | Did Nigel Lythgoe go too far in his flirtation with Nico Greetham’s mother during So You Think You Can Dance‘s Memphis auditions? And which was skeezier: Asking the woman if her husband was in the audience or suggesting to Nico that he’d get a ticket to Vegas if he could get his mother to entertain a fling with the British judge (“We’ll sort you out if you sort me out”)? Lastly, wasn’t Wayne Brady a surprisingly good guest judge?
10 | Be honest, Inside Amy Schumer fans: Aren’t there moments you wish you could actually hire “Slap Chef,” the weight-loss plan in which world-class chefs “make you one of their signature dishes, then before you can say ‘Slap Chef,’ they knock it out of your stupid mouth”?
11 | Are we the last to notice Colin Donnell (aka Arrow‘s Tommy) in these ads for Air Optix Night & Day?
13 | Is ABC News’ The Lookout satisfying your craving for John Stossel-like sting-the-sheister consumer advocate reporting?
14 | As much as we love Hannibal and its visual splendor, don’t the stylistic flourishes — say, Will imagining Crawford orating in a roomful of stag antlers — occasionally (occasionally) distract from the narrative more than punctuate it? And given how often he wakes up covered in sweat, why doesn’t Will just sleep in the nude?
15 | How badly did you groan when Burn Notice‘s Maddie started blabbing about Michael’s CIA mission to the “child services guy”? Kind of a bush-league boner for Ma at this point, no? And how fun was it to see H.R.G. assign Michael to take down Flying Man?
16 | Does anybody other than TV characters summon someone over for a discreet conversation by asking for “a word, please”?
17 | The guy and the kids in the AT&T commercials — they’re just sitting around having random chit-chats at this point, right? Is there even a sell anymore?
