Question: I've seen a lot of debate in the last week since Breaking Bad aired its midpoint finale of this terrific split final season. Much of it focusing on whether Walter White would be obtuse enough to leave Gale's signed copy of Leaves of Grass lying around for anyone ...

Poll: Which Remake Are You Excited For?

American television often looks across the pond for inspiration. Though the U.S. version of a British hit can be very successful (The Office, Three's Company), more than a few have gotten lost in translation (anyone remember Life on Mars or Coupling?). But several seem very promising this winter season: teen drama Skins, Matt LeBlanc's Episodes and Being Human, in which a vampire, ghost and werewolf live together in semi-harmony. So which remake of a British show are you most looking forward to?

Are Fans Ready for Glee 2.0?

Glee

Imagine Glee without attention hog Rachel Berry, outspoken Kurt or ditzy Brittany. Well, a new crop of McKinley High students may be infiltrating New Directions sooner than you'd think.

Less than halfway through its sophomore season, series co-creator Ryan Murphy is already looking to the future of the popular musical comedy. He says he plans to replace the current cast with new actors once their characters graduate at the end of 2012.

Ask Matt: Mad Men, Undercovers, MTV, Grey's, The Event and More!

Private Practice

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

Question: I'd argue that Mad Men's recently wrapped fourth season was perhaps its finest to date, but I'm disappointed with the way the writers treated Betty throughout the season. Betty was easily one of my favorite characters during the first three years of the show, and I was thrilled when January Jones finally received an overdue Emmy nomination for her stellar work. However, not only was the actress sorely underused this past season, but she was asked to play Betty as a one-note shrew for the majority of her screen time. There were glimpses of the broken woman inside the monster here and there, but unfortunately I think Matthew Weiner has turned Betty into a character Mad Men fans love to hate. I can't help but view this as a waste of a great actress and a potentially fascinating character. What's your take on Betty now that season 4 is over? Can she be redeemed in the eyes of fans next year, or has the character outlived her usefulness now that both she and Don have moved on? — Donnie

Ask Matt: Closer, True Blood, Eureka, Mad Men, Terriers and More

J.K. Simmons and Kyra Sedgwick, The Closer

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

Question: I absolutely love The Closer! It's one of my favorite shows and I am always so eager to watch that I usually don't even wait for my DVR to get ahead enough to allow me to skip commercials. This season started off with a bang and I've loved it, but I'm a little concerned. What will happen if Brenda does become chief? On one hand, as a woman, I think it would be great for the character to be a female Chief of Police in Los Angeles. On the other hand, I am afraid for what that would mean for her position as a "closer." If she gets some distance from the cases, how can she possibly get all of those confessions that have the audience on the edge of their seats? Plus, I have not enjoyed the rather jerk-like qualities this whole process has brought out in Pope. I know he's got his heart set on being chief, but it seems a little uncharacteristic for him to be such a jerk now when he has not gone completely into that territory before. Please tell me that whatever is in the works is going to maintain the same quality of scripts and keep Brenda right in the middle of the action! Do you have any insight into the rest of the season or what impact this whole development would have for the future of the show? — Beth

Matt Roush: Now that's a true sign of devotion, watching a show in real time, not DVR time. I'm very fond of The Closer as well.... read more
