Ask Matt: Orphan Black, Merlin, Borgias, Nashville vs. Smash

Question: After finishing Saturday's season finale of Orphan Black, many thoughts come to mind, but the most obvious is that if Tatiana Maslany doesn't walk away with the Emmy for best actress — or is it five nominations in the best supporting actress category? — then the people who vote just aren't watching TV. Every character she plays has such varied distinction from hair, voice, even walks, and other minor mannerisms and played them all with a determination like it was her only character. It might have been easy to phone one or two in and at times you could forget it all one person. Matt, I know you enjoy the show, but I was curious: Did you ever at any time find yourself picking a favorite? I think mine came to be Alison, because while they all have a dark side, the one who seemed to be the most sunshine and light was probably the darkest of all with a heavy dose of comedy thrown in. Can the show sustain excellence in Season 2? — Jeffrey

Ask Matt: Upfront Fallout: 24 and "Event" Series, Parenthood, Bones, Wonderland

Question: I'm shocked and delighted by Fox's announcement about bringing back 24, but honestly, I think this points to the future of television. It's the same thing with The Following: Give us shorter seasons, TV Gods! Seriously, 22-episode seasons just don't work for so many shows, especially the serialized ones. How much filler was there in any given 24-episode season of real-time 24? A ton, inevitably. And every other heavily serialized show you can point to is eventually going to fall back on filler episodes, or extended (and frustrating) wheel-spinning, etc. It's just inevitable, and the best serialized shows are the ones that best manage this reality: for instance, The Vampire Diaries splits its season into three or four tightly focused mini-arcs that pack as much into each mini-arc as most shows cover in a whole season. read more

Elementary Surprise: Moriarty Revealed!

Jonny Lee Miller and Natalie Dormer

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Elementary's season finale. Read at your own risk!]

Elementary finally unmasked Moriarty, but it probably wasn't who you were expecting.

After reuniting with Irene Alder (Natalie Dormer), whom Moriarty had apparently kept captive, Sherlock (Jonny Lee Miller) begins to deduce that his former lover might be working with Moriarty, but sadly he was mistaken.

The Thursday Playlist: Office, Big Bang, Idol and Other Finales

Jenna Fischer and John Krasinski

Given the fanfare with which NBC is closing The Office after nine seasons (at least two too many), you'd think it was a Cheers or Seinfeld-sized hit from the "must-see" glory days, instead of the show that presided over the slow fade of a once-powerful comedy brand on the back of too many same-seeming niche comedies specializing in preciously arch irony. At its best (the Steve Carell and early Jim-Pam years), The Office had heart as well as range, as it found comic magic in its ensemble once the show emerged from the large shadow cast by the classic Ricky Gervais original series. But now it just hits the same beats over and over to lesser effect, which hasn't stopped NBC from pulling out the stops. The celebration (eulogy?) begins with an hour-long behind-the-scenes retrospective (Thursday, 8/7c) produced by NBC News — which didn't have more pressing business? — featuring interviews from cast members and producers. The main event is a super-sized finale (9/8c) that has swelled to an hour and 15 minutes, staged as a mock reunion of the Dunder Mifflin gang several months after the airing of the mock documentary that took nearly a decade to finish.

Elementary Postmortem: Natalie Dormer on the Irene Adler Reveal and Finale Twist

Jonny Lee Miller, Natalie Dormer

[Warning: This story contains major spoilers from Thursday's episode of Elementary. Read at your own risk!]

Irene Adler is alive!

That's the bomb Elementary dropped on both Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and the audience Thursday after a mysterious man claiming to be Moriarty led Holmes straight to his one and only love. Sherlock had long believed Irene (Natalie Dormer) to be dead after discovering a healthy amount of her blood in London. But she is, in fact, alive, having been held captive for the last 18 months. This, of course, raises the question: Why now? With Sherlock hot on Moriarty's trail, how will Irene fit into all of this? TVGuide.com turned to Dormer to get the scoop on Irene's return. Plus: Check out an exclusive sneak peek of the extended season finale promo below!
