Ask Matt: RIP Bunheads and The Glades, Plus Downton, Fall TV Promos and More

The Crazy Ones

Question: Recently, Amy Sherman-Palladino gathered some of the cast to film a goodbye dance to the much-beloved ABC Family series Bunheads. I admit it, watching it made me a little misty. I wish more creators respected their fans and casts enough to provide such closure. Do you think such series codas will, or should, become more common? Also, do you think they are a good or bad thing for fans and show runners? Meaning: Does it just prolong the fans' agony of letting a favorite show go by keeping them hoping for one more taste and, on the creative side, label creators as undesirable to work with if they're unable to let their failed ideas go, potentially preventing them from getting future projects produced because no one just wants a copy of something that didn't work elsewhere?

Question: I know you weren't too fond of the final season of Entourage (to put it nicely), but I was curious if you thought Jeremy Piven's work this year was worthy of an Emmy nomination? — Joe

Matt Roush: Sure. I wouldn't mind seeing him get one last nomination. He used to own that supporting comedy actor category, winning three in a row before he dropped off the radar (along with the show), part of the backlash ...

Torchwood Finale Postmortem: Espenson on Jilly's Revelation, Big Twists and a Lack of Aliens

Torchwood: Miracle Day

[WARNING: The following story contains major spoilers from the season finale of Torchwood: Miracle Day. Read at your own risk.]

A hole in the world is the villain? The Blessing tells Jilly she's "right"? Rex is immortal?

TVGuide.com spoke with Jane Espenson -- who wrote or co-wrote half of the season's episodes for series executive producer Russell T. Davies — about Jilly's curious revelation, the distinct lack of Torchwood's usual otherworldly baddies and why Captain Jack and Angelo didn't get to say goodbye.
