Ask Matt: Elementary, Selfie's Fallen Star, Murder, Sleepy Hollow, Sons of Anarchy, and More

Question: I've been a fan of Elementary, and I really liked the story arc last season with Rhys Ifans playing Mycroft. His involvement with Watson, moving to New York, opening the restaurant, concealing from everyone that he was MI6: The whole season seemed to give a fresh twist to the Sherlock history and move it forward. This season, however, with Kitty (Ophelia Lovibond), I'm not getting what the writers are doing. I think she's beyond boring, probably because she has no real reason to be there, and she's splintering the energy I used to feel between Sherlock and Watson, and each of them to Bell and Gregson. None of the episodes this year has grabbed me. Is it just me? Do they have a story arc buried in there someplace I can't see? I'd rather they go back to a crime-of-the-week if they can't do better than this. I love your column, by the way! I can't believe how long it took me to find it, but now I never miss it. — Kay

Weekend Review: HBO's Olive Kitteridge, Revisiting The Affair

Frances McDormand

To know Olive Kitteridge is not easy. Many would likely argue it's not worth the risk of being exposed to her harsh, judgmental New Englander's scorn. Suffer fools gladly? Not this curmudgeonly math teacher who, when her husband insists she's not depressed, snaps back, "Yes, I am. Happy to have it. Comes with being smart." Prompting her long-suffering son to wonder, "Is that why you're so mean all the time?"

And yet, in HBO's oddly moving and melancholy-shrouded two-night adaptation of Elizabeth Strout's Pulitzer-winning novel Olive Kitteridge (Sunday-Monday, 9/8c), a remarkable Frances McDormand makes Olive a fascinating, tragicomic study in human stubbornness, contrariness and contradiction.... read more

Top Moments: Stephen Colbert Dares to Dream, the Saved by the Bell Movie Is a Real Nightmare

Sam Kindseth

Our top moments of the week:

11. Best Explanation: Remember when Gwen Stefani Adele Dazeem-ed Stephen Colbert's name at the Emmys? According to Adam Levine, Stefani was super-nervous backstage, even after he offered a helpful mnemonic device. "We're going up there, and the whole time she's like, 'I can't pronounce Colbert. I can't pronounce it,'" Levine says on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. "I was like, 'If he wins, think: cold bear.'" Of course, Stefani went with... read more

Top Moments: Jimmy Kimmel's Friendly Reunion and True Blood's Lifeless Finale

Our top moments of the week:

13. Best Response: In case you were living under a rock, or, you know, watching something else on TV Monday night, Gwen Stefani took a page from John Travolta's book and totally mispronounced Stephen Colbert's last name when she presented at the Emmys. Even though Colbert had already pre-taped his Tuesday show last week, the host still gets in a small jab at the much-discussed gaffe in the blink-and-you'll-miss-it opening credits, in which "Colbore" comes across the screen next to other descriptive words like "honorable," "star-spangled" and... read more

/tvshows/doctor-who/332337" target="_blank">Doctor Who debut on Saturday (8/7c, BBC America) when he officially takes over Time Lord duties as the Twelfth Doctor. Capaldi's dark, dangerous Doctor stands in stark contrast to the young, quirky men who proceeded him, but don't expect showrunner Steven Moffat to go out of his way to endear you to the new Doctor's style.

"It's just fun when the Doctor's new," Moffat told reporters during the New York stop of the Who World Tour...

Mega Buzz: The New Doctor Who and Sons' and Boardwalk's Final Seasons

Each week, executive editor Adam Bryant satisfies your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

What can you tell me about Twelve and Clara's dynamic on Doctor Who? — Aisha
Things will be very different between the pair now that the Doctor — to put it gently — has a few more years on him. In fact, without her schoolgirl crush influencing her, Clara begins to come into her own and be more assertive in their relationship. "I think she succeeds in dominating him, telling him what to do," Peter Capaldi teases. But don't expect him to be a total pushover. "She can only get so far with that," Capaldi says. "Then he'll turn. He often turns."

What is Juice up to when the new season of Sons of Anarchy begins? — Luke
Since he both "betrayed" Jax and killed the sheriff to protect Gemma, he's understandably keeping a low profile. Naturally, his hideout is soon discovered, which forces Juice to take even more drastic action to keep his secret safe.... read more
