Question: I have never been a fan of Two and a Half Men (tried to watch it years ago, but the only thing I found funny was Conchata Ferrell) and never understood how it has stayed on the air for so long. I saw that creator Chuck Lorre is planning on the main storyline next season to be about the two main characters (Walden and Alan, both heterosexual) "marrying" each other in order for Walden to achieve his goal of adopting a child. To me, I find this appalling on so many levels. Gay men and women (and their straight allies) have fought for so long for equal marriage rights, so having two straight men "marry" just seems like a mockery for those fighting for marriage equality. I am a little ashamed of Lorre even coming up with this idea (particularly as his biggest star, Jim Parsons, on his biggest show, The Big Bang Theory, is gay). Your thoughts? — Tim in Atlanta

Postmortem: Justified Boss Answers Burning Questions, Teases Final Season Showdown

Justified

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from the Season 5 finale of Justified. Read at your own risk.]

As Justified finales go, the Season 5 capper wasn't nearly as bloody as its predecessors.

Sure, there was a massive shootout between the marshals and the drug cartel that wanted to skin Boyd Crowder (Walton Goggins) alive. But our usually trigger-happy hero Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) never fired his sidearm.

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from Tuesday's episode of Justified. Read at your own risk.]

On Tuesday's JustifiedAva Crowder took control of her own destiny.

After weeks of sitting behind bars waiting for Boyd (Walton Goggins) to come to her rescue and being manipulated by others in the prison's power structure, Ava (Joelle Carter) made two bold moves.  The first (and most heartbreaking) involved her basically breaking up with Boyd, telling her fiancé that, for now, she had to go it alone.

On the Set: Justified Rides Toward Its Last Roundup

Timothy Olyphant

The sun is quickly setting on Justified.

As the contemporary Western's cast and crew shoot a scene for the show's penultimate season, the light is going, even though it's only 4:15pm. But in the mountains of California's Angeles National Forest — which are standing in for the deep, dark hills of Kentucky, the show's setting — the sun rises late and sets early.

Justified: 6 Things to Know About Season 5

Timothy Olyphant

Whether intentional or not, the first episode of Justified's fifth season feels truer than ever to the spirit of Elmore Leonard, the literary giant who died in August and whose short story "Fire in the Hole" inspired the FX drama.

"It's been sad," executive producer Graham Yost says of working on the show after Leonard's passing. "Our first response was sadness at the loss, immediately followed by gratitude that we got to know this guy and spend time with him. [He was] a writer who I long admired and read almost all his stuff. I got a chance to try to bring his world to life on TV, but better than that, just spend time with him on occasion. He was just a neat guy. There's the old song, 'Never Meet Your Heroes.' That doesn't apply in the case of Elmore."

Castle: Can a Case Heal Alexis' Relationship With Her Father?

Nathan Fillion and Molly Quinn

Things have been pretty tense in Richard Castle's loft lately.

In recent weeks on ABC's Castle, mystery writer Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) has grown tired of sharing his home with Pi (Myko Olivier), the new boyfriend of his daughter Alexis (Molly Quinn). As a result — and because Castle has been more caught up in his recent engagement to Beckett (Stana Katic) than his pride and joy — Alexis moved into her own place with Pi against her dad's wishes.

Justified Postmortem: Graham Yost Answers Our Burning Questions

[WARNING: The following story contains spoilers from the Season 4 finale of FX's Justitfied. Read at your own risk.]

Justified's season finales have generally lived up to their names.  Just as "Bulletville," "Bloody Harlan" and "Slaughterhouse" were as violent and intense as you'd expect, the Season 4 finale, "Ghosts" was at times often hauntingly quiet. But that's not to say that no bullets flew.

Having pretty much wrapped up the season-long search for the mysterious Drew Thompson (Jim Beaver) in this season's penultimate episode, trigger-happy Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) was eager to settle into his 30-day suspension by spending some quality time with his pregnant ex-wife Winona (Natalie Zea). Unfortunately, Winona was being held captive by the thugs of Nicky Augustine (Mike O'Malley), the Detroit mobster who had hoped to catch (and kill) Drew Thompson first.

Though Raylan quickly dispatched the thugs with a few slugs to the chest, the only way to ensure Winona and the unborn baby's safety was to settle his beef with Nicky once and for all.... read more

Justified Finale: Will Boyd and Ava Get Their Happy Ending?

Joelle Carter, Walton Goggins

It's been an up-and-down season for Justified's Boyd and Ava Crowder.

Although the pair got engaged and made strides toward becoming the king and queen of Harlan County, Boyd (Walton Goggins) and Ava (Joelle Carter) were constantly hounded by the ghost of Delroy, the owner of the whorehouse whom Ava shot in self-defense in Season 3. In fact, Boyd and Ava's season-long quest to silence Ellen May (Abby Miller), the hooker with a heart of gold who witnessed Ava shooting Delroy, climaxed in the penultimate episode when Ava had a chance to off Ellen May once and for all... read more
