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

Question: I am a long-time follower of your columns and reviews, and I just want to thank you for all the great series you have steered me toward over the years. The latest is Breaking Bad, which I never would have gone near if not for your raves. What an amazing show. Now I'm wondering if you have been watching The Glades and what you think of its development. Being from South Florida, I am always curious about shows located there. Most shows don't get the feel of the place (we won't even speak of that CSI show), but this one seems to be doing it right so far. And talk about someone coming out of left field: Where did this amazing guy Matt Passmore come from? Because I know he is Australian, I'll forgive his lack of a Chicago accent, but he has developed such an interesting and believable character (thank you also, writers) and is such a charismatic lead. After Lost, I never thought I could appreciate Kiele Sanchez in anything, but I am enjoying her performance as well. Thanks again for all the enjoyable hours of TV and please keep writing your columns! — Susan

Matt Roush: Well, thanks for that encouraging feedback. With The Glades, I'll fess up that I haven't seen every episode... read more

Mad Men

Mad Men
10/9c AMC
Don and Pete execute a deft little end-around in an attempt to score a new client who could hopefully help turn their corner of Madison Avenue into Easy Street. But things are never that easy at Sterling Cooper Draper Price, and who would expect otherwise? In a lighter vein at the office, Don is slowly becoming exasperated with his well-experienced (read not-so-young), not-so-efficient new secretary, Miss Blankenship (Randee Heller), an escapee from the mothballs of the secretarial pool.

True Blood

True Blood
9/8c HBO
Sookie plays with fire more than a pyromaniac, doesn't she? Lucky for her, Alcide was nearby when she got into a scrape at that Jackson werewolf bar two weeks ago, and now it appears she'll need his help again when they attend an engagement party for his ex-girlfriend. Meanwhile, Eric hasn't been all that interested in locating Bill, until he gets a not-so-subtle push in that direction. Of course, that's assuming Bill, last seen pledging allegiance to the king of Mississippi, wants to be found.

The Glades' Matt Passmore on Anti-Heroes, Accents and Miami Vice

Matt Passmore

Jim Longworth, the Chicago detective whose relocation to Florida is at the center of the new A&E series The Glades, isn't the most sympathetic character. In fact, he's a bit of an abrasive know-it-all. But that's just fine with the actor who plays him, Matt Passmore, who's had plenty of experience playing characters who aren't always likeable. In anticipation of The Glades' premiere Sunday at 10/9c, Passmore talked with TVGuide.com about what makes the show unique, and how being an Australian playing a transplanted Chicagoan helps him relate to his character.

TVGuide.com: What attracted you to The Glades?
Matt Passmore: When I read it, I thought the guy kind of leapt off the page. I thought [creator] Clifton Campbell had created a great character. There's a lot of scripts where you read great characters and that sort of thing, but there was something about this guy that I thought I kind of got him. ... And it seemed like a cop show... read more
