Ask Matt: Mother Finale, More Good Wife Reaction, Americans, NCIS

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

Question: I imagine you must be getting flooded with questions and/or ranting about the finale of How I Met Your Mother. I was among those who left the finale feeling incredibly sad, not what I expect from a show that's kept me laughing (and sometimes crying) for the last nine years, even when others were saying that the quality had declined. The thing is, when looked at objectively, I don't even have a major problem (Major Problem!) with the content of the finale. Yes, people get divorced and people die. People get remarried after both, and I've known several people in my own life who have reconnected with an old girlfriend or high-school sweetheart after the death of a spouse. It doesn't invalidate the marriage or even lessen the feelings of loss. The finale itself had great moments: the high-infinity, Marshall's "positive talk" about his corporate job, Judge Fudge, the mother's Gore/Lieberman costume, robots versus wrestlers, etc. Seeing Barney with a child was wonderful, although I did think he had grown more than immediately going back to his old ways after his divorce. And the scene on the platform was near perfection as they wove in how their almost-shared history was influencing their connection, making the whole nine-year story relevant to how he'd actually met the mother. (By the way, one more TM would be the name we've known Tracy by: The Mother.)

Underneath the Wigs: Uncovering The Americans' Hair-Raising Disguises

On the back of The Americans' hair and makeup trailer door is a photo collage of the cast and crew each in the same wig. It's not Clark or John Denver or any other of Philip's (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth's (Keri Russell) follicular get-ups on the FX series — but Felicity's famous curls.

"Isn't it hilarious? I love it," Russell, the erstwhile Felicity, tells TVGuide.com with a laugh. "It's so great. I'm all about the hair!"

TV wigs: Tricks or treats? Vote now!

So is The Americans. The spy drama has never met a wig it didn't like, outfitting Russell and Rhys in such ridiculous and fantastic espionage 'dos, ranging from dowdy to sexy, that the wigs have become the true stars of the show.

"It's really been a wild experience," Peg Schierholz, the show's hair department head, says. "Lori [Hicks, the makeup head] and I had never intended for the wigs to blow up this way. It's really amazing how much people love them. We kept getting ...
