Question: I am shocked how some of your readers think Fargo should have been just a follow-up to the movie with let's see how Marge is doing since everyone else involved in the movie was either dead or in prison. I agree that the show is terrific. The episode last week was one of the most amazing episodes of TV I have ever seen.

Love thy neighbor. Words to live by for Sid's sexy sister Abby Cunningham - especially with the male neighbors in her new hometown, Knots Landing. Maybe it's Abby's influence, but bed-hopping becomes the latest cul-de-sac sport. Who cheats? It's simpler to list who doesn't in this sizzling 4-Disc Season 2 Set of the long-running hit series. And there's a lot more excitement: J.R. and Bobby Ewing swap Texas drilling for California dreaming and visit, crooks muscle in on Gary, a hitchhiker accuses Sid of rape, armed robbers hold the cul-de-sac women hostage... and the season ends with a genuine cliffhanger: Sid careening toward a seaside cliff after someone tampers with his car!

Ask Matt: Finales (Castle, Mentalist), Penny Dreadful, Cancellation Fallout

Send questions and comments to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: Last week, you wrote about how producers "often — too often, to be honest — try to end their seasons with a bang ... in hopes of stimulating interest for when they return several months later." I understand the reasoning, and it definitely worked for me with Person of Interest — it was game-changing and left me very curious to see how it goes, but satisfying. However I had the opposite reaction to Castle, which looked to be heading for a good place to pause with a minor game-changer (Mr. & Mrs. Castle), even got some nice wedding emotion going, and then threw in a ridiculous "dun-dun-dun" moment which had zero emotional impact as no one believes Castle could be dead. Most of these cliffhangers now seem to me like cheap tricks, a shyster trying to "buy" your viewing next fall, while moving the story to a new level seems a legitimate way of keeping interest and far more likely to have a good payoff in terms of the story next year. Anyway, it led me to wonder are there any "cliffhangers" of the past that you remember with pleasure and/or satisfaction, or is it only the game-changers that stand out in your mind? As always, thanks for an interesting column. — Elle

Premise: A new clan of Ewings hits the air---and the sheets---in this `Dallas' spin-off set on a cul-de-sac in Southern California and centering on the exploits of recovering alcoholic Gary Ewing (brother of J.R.), his wife and their friends---and enemies. The hugely successful drama outlasted all other nighttime soaps of the '80s, running for 14 seasons. Trivia note: Even though Bobby Ewing's death (famously) turned out to be only a dream on `Dallas,' he remained dead in the `Knots Landing' universe.
