Question: I am so disappointed in The Walking Dead. I cannot believe that they have indicated that there is an interest on the part of Daryl towards Beth. That is just ick. She is 17 and while I don't know what his age is supposed to be, I've always assumed his character is at least mid 30s. Let me repeat, ick! And it's not as if she is a mature 17-year-old, her character comes across as a complete child to me with just as much growing needed as Carl. In fact, Carl seems more mature to me at times. Why would the writers go there? All I can think is how perverted it is for Daryl to express an interest in a 17-year-old girl, and a character that I once loved is now bordering along the lines of a pedophile. My sister is so upset she thinks she might fast-forward over any story lines that involve Daryl. I know this is a TV show, but all I could think of was people's horrified reaction when Miley Cyrus twerked on Robin Thicke. Where is that horror now? On the upside, I've been reading your column for years and have always greatly enjoyed your thoughts and opinions even when they have differed from my own. Thanks for allowing me to vent. — KC

AMC is at a crossroads.
Although the cable network's successes in 2013 are hard to ignore — Breaking Bad ended its landmark run to critical raves and an astounding 400-plus percent growth in total viewers, and The Walking Dead remained TV's top-rated drama with a Season 4 premiere that drew 16 million sets of eyeballs — the network faced its share of setbacks. A resurrected third season of The Killing earned better reviews, but it was canceled (again) after failing to deliver an audience (it's since been revived again by Netflix). Worse, freshman drama Low Winter Sun was utterly rejected by viewers despite being paired with Bad's successful final run.

Better Call Saul, the planned Breaking Bad spin-off about Bob Odenkirk's greasy lawyer Saul Goodman, may act as both a prequel and a sequel to its predecessor.
Though the project was originally described as telling the story of Saul before he became involved with Walter White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul), Odenkirk tells IGN it may also incorporate elements of what happened to Saul after the Breaking Bad finale.
