Question: I've been mulling over the ending of The Killing for a week now. Up until the series finale (which is what it should be), I was convinced that the writers hadn't known who the killer would be when they started the series. This was always a pet peeve of mine with soap operas. How can you plot a murder without a murderer? The main problem with this is that the actor playing the murderer doesn't have the background knowledge to act his or her scenes. Though using twice as many episodes as they needed, I could sort of see in the finale how they were setting things up. To truly see if that's the case, I'd have to re-watch the first couple of episodes, which I don't want to do.

Lie to Me Boss: We've Made Promises for Season 4

Lie to Me's Season 3 finale dares to ask the question: What if Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg had killed one of his closest friends and partners?

VIDEO: Jesse Eisenberg and Mark Zuckerberg finally meet on Saturday Night Live

Truthfully, the episode has nothing to do with Facebook, but you can't help but notice the parallels between it and the Oscar-nominated film, The Social Network, which explores the complicated personal and legal entanglements behind the founding of the most popular website on the Internet. In Lie to Me's tale, Nikita's Ashton Holmes plays Zach Morstein, the wunderkind co-creator of a popular dating application who Dr. Lightman (Tim Roth) fingers as the lead suspect in the murder of Zach's best friend and company co-founder.

Executive producers Alexander Cary and David Graziano happily wear their influences... read more

Premise: The classic whodunit about the razor-sharp detective with a rumpled raincoat, a bumbling manner and no apparent first name. He always has 'uh, just one more question' before nailing the killer. `Columbo' premiered as an NBC series (following a couple of highly regarded TV-movies) in September 1971 as one of three rotating `Sunday Mystery Movie' elements (`McMillan and Wife' and `McCloud' were the other two). It ran for six seasons and was revived periodically in TV films over the next decades.
