Ask Matt: Men Getting Married, 24, Blacklist, TNT Shows and the Emmys

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

Ask Matt: S.H.I.E.L.D., Helix, Justified, Hannibal and More

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

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.

Top Moments: The Good Wife Shoots to Kill and New Girl Goes Up in Smoke

Josh Charles, Julianna Margulies

Our top moments of the week:

13. Birds of a Feather Award: Wednesday's episode of Arrow unites the Black Canary and the Huntress, two members of the so-called "Birds of Prey," but in a nice twist, they're adversaries. Their fight gains even more symbolism when Laurel — who will eventually become the Black Canary and a member of the "Birds of Prey" — joins the fray. An interesting way to... read more

Question: Justified is the very best cable has to offer. It is well written and the actors seem to have been born to play those characters. I cannot believe how you can love and hate a person at the same time, but with Boyd (Walton Goggins), that is the way it is. Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) is the good/bad guy that women want to love and men want to kill or the very least knock out! Please tell me that Art (Nick Searcy) and Raylan are going to end as friends. Raylan and Art were more than friends by the second season and I would hate to think Art would distance himself from Raylan because he did not intervene when Nicky Augustine got his just desserts! — Ann

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 Boss on Ending the Show: "Six Years Felt About Right"

Timothy Olyphant

Fans and FX might not be ready for Justified to go, but the cast and crew are.

The network confirmed Tuesday at the Television Critics Association winter previews that the drama, based on Elmore Leonard's "Fire in the Hole" short story, will end after its sixth season next year — a decision creator and executive producer Graham Yost and star Timothy Olyphant came to after a "long conversation."

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."

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.
