Matt's Weekend Picks: December 10-12

The Good Guys (Friday, 9/8c, Fox)
Not a great week for quirky crime-fighters. First FX gives the wonderful Terriers the boot, and now we come to the end of the line for Fox's genial but low-rated buddy-cop spoof. We will miss Bradley Whitford as gone-to-seed Dallas detective Don Stack, especially his bushy 'stache. The final episode brings back Gary Cole as Stark's legendary former partner, Frank Savage, and we also meet the ex-partner of Stark's sidekick Jack Bailey (Colin Hanks). Jack's former partner, played by American Pie's Chris Klein, has done well, now the assistant chief of the department, called in when a Mafia informant is murdered and a dirty cop is suspected.

When Pedro Almodovar won the ...

Question: When Pedro Almodovar won the best original screenplay Oscar for Talk to Her (2002), the announcer said as he was walking up to the stage that it was his second nomination, the other being for best director for the same film. But didn't he win an Oscar for All About My Mother (1999) in the foreign-language-film category? I know that the nominees in that category are actually the countries where the films were released and produced, but why does the director get to accept the award, not the producers? Do Oscar winners who are absent the night they win still get to receive their statuettes even if it's long after they won? And finally, what happens if your Oscar is stolen or broken — can you get a new one?

Answer: Wow, you are full of questions! The director gets to accept the award because the Academy say read more

Please tell me the title of ...

Question: Please tell me the title of the movie in which Gene Kelly danced with trash-can lids on his feet.

Answer: It's Always Fair Weather (1955), which was originally conceived as a sequel to On the Town (1949). By the time it made it to the screen, the character's names were changed and there were no references to the night they spent together in New York as carefree young sailors on leave. But the idea remains: Soldiers Ted Riley (Gene Kelly), Doug Hallerton (Dan Dailey) and Angie Valentine (Michael Kidd) come through World War II together and before parting ways at the war's end, they promise t read more
