Question: What do you think of the "Uprising" arc in the second half of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s first season? I think it is miles better than the first half of this season, which was pretty so-so at times. [Spoilers ahead] The tie-in with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, with Hydra infiltrating S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Garrett being revealed as the Clairvoyant working for Hydra, were very good plot twists, along with Agent Ward being a turncoat to work for Agent Garrett and Hydra — or could Ward be going undercover for Agent Coulson to help S.H.I.E.L.D. bring down Hydra? I really hope this show gets renewed for a second season by ABC, so that it will continue to improve and be a better show that everyone can enjoy to watch! - Chris

Ask Matt: Good Wife Shocker, Hannibal, Originals, Following vs. Human

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I'm sure you have tons of letters in your mailbag about the "twist" on The Good Wife. For once, this was not over-hyped at all. I've always stood by the idea that the creators of shows are artists who have the right to do whatever they want with their characters, and we should be more angry with gratuitous plot twists or inconsistent character development than things that just make us sad. It is a "melodrama," after all, and entertainment does not mean that you will be made happy all the time. read more

Exclusive Following Sneak Peek: Claire's Back with a Vengeance!

The Following

It's fitting that the season premiere of Fox's The Following was titled "Resurrection," because that's been the theme this season. First, the presumed-dead Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) was revealed to be alive, and last week, we learned that Joe's wife Claire (Natalie Zea), who appeared to have been fatally stabbed in the Season 1 finale, has actually been hiding out in witness protection.

Ask Matt: Big Bang and Football, Psych, The Following, Bones, Enlisted

The Big Bang Theory

Question: I read that CBS won the bidding for an exclusive Thursday night NFL game package starting next season. I'm wondering what that means for The Big Bang Theory. It would seem to be an odd choice to disrupt the most popular show on TV from its prime-time slot, even though there's no denying football's ratings, either. How do you think CBS will handle this? Will Big Bang move to a new night, or maybe use it as a lead-in to the football? Or will they maybe hold the show back to start its season run after the eight weeks of football are over and thereby cut down on the number of reruns the show airs. Any ideas? — Chris read more

The Following: Where Is Joe Carroll? Who Is Ryan's New Family?

James Purefoy, Kevin Bacon

When The Following returns for its second season (Monday, Jan. 27, 9/8c on Fox), a quick scene establishes the fate of Claire (Natalie Zea), and then the show jumps ahead a year to show us a very different Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon). Although the tortured FBI consultant has pieced himself back together after the apparent death of Joe Carroll (James Purefoy), not all is right with the world. Obviously... read more

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."

The premiere (Tuesday at 10/9c, FX) will feature a special 90-second tribute to the late author, but the show itself, full of Leonard's trademark crackling dialogue, will continue to honor him until it ends... read more

Tuesday Review: Intelligence, Killer Women, Justified and a Ton of New TV

Meghan Ory, Josh Holloway and Marg Helgenberger

He's a hunkier Chuck with the mad fighting skills, reckless bravado — and propensity toward angst — of Alias's Sydney Bristow. Meet TV's new Six Billion Dollar Man, Gabriel Vaughn, who you'll recognize as Sawyer from Lost. And Josh Holloway is very much the main reason to tune into CBS's Intelligence (Tuesday, 9/8c), a proficient if initially perfunctory action thriller that benefits immeasurably from its star's gruff, bluff machismo. Although a little less brooding (over a long-missing wife who might be a terrorist) would make Gabriel, and Intelligence, a lot more fun.

Do you know how next week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. connects to Thor: The Dark World? — Dirk
NATALIE:
If you haven't yet seen Thor: The Dark World, you may want to put that on your to-do list this weekend or you might be a little lost during next week's episode. "The story centers around an Asgardian relic," Brett Dalton tells me. "As for how it affects the team ... I'm hoping it gives me Chris Hemsworth arms." Seconded.

Is it too soon to ask for scoop on The Following? Will Claire be back this season? — Jessica
ADAM:
Natalie Zea's role remains a bit of a question mark, especially given the Comic-Con teaser footage that suggests a grim fate for Claire. Another bad sign? read more
