It's good to be dead. Or a vampire. Or a community college student, for that matter. At least that's the case according to the Paley Center for Media, which will pay tribute to The Walking Dead, True Blood, Community and nine other current and past TV shows at its PaleyFest 2011: William S. Paley Television Festival this March at the Saban Theater in Beverly Hills.
The CW has not officially canceled this show, but they didn't pick up a full season of episodes for Season 2, so things don't look good for the show's fans. In this two-hour season finale, it's somewhat fitting that characters find unexpected things happening. Baze makes big plans for a future with Emma, unaware of the past she shares with his father. Then Lux arranges to enjoy a romantic meal with Eric, but is shocked when her parents arrive to throw a wrench in those plans. — Jennifer Sankowski

Working on a television show can be much like being an agent or a spy — all information is on a need to know basis, and you have to be extremely good at keeping secrets. So when the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences brought together a group of primetime crime fighters, TV Guide Magazine took the opportunity to gather some information about upcoming plotlines and character development.

Question: I'm starting to think Elisabeth Moss is going to have a major problem to deal with next summer: deciding which Mad Men episode to submit for Emmy consideration! Peggy has always been one of Mad Men's most complex and intriguing characters, but this season it just feels like Moss and the writers providing her material have been stepping it up more and more in each episode. I can't decide which Peggy moment has been my favorite so far this season: her dabblings in '60s counterculture, her moving reaction to the news of Trudy Campbell's pregnancy, her clever takedown of the horrid new art director, or any of her scenes with Don in the heartbreaking "The Suitcase" episode. What really is blowing my mind is that we're only about halfway through this season of Mad Men. If it's this good already, I can't even imagine how great the climactic episodes are going to be! I just wanted to check in and see if you have been enjoying Peggy lately as much as I have been...
Elisabeth Moss and Jon Hamm
As summer TV begins to hand off to the fall season, some thoughts and observations on a few of the shows and headlines that stood out.
Instant Classic TV: I haven't been able to stop thinking about Sunday's episode of Mad Men, regarded by many as the high point of the season to date and a series peak as well, a blistering tour de force for Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss, who now have dynamite entries for their Emmy reel next year. (This season has been particularly strong for Moss, as Peggy Olson comes into her own: partying with bohemians, doffing her clothes to unnerve the chauvinistic new art director, and now standing up to Don.) "The Suitcase," so masterfully penned by Matthew Weiner that it wouldn't be a surprise to see him at the Emmy podium yet again next year, felt like watching a three-act play — or maybe a three-ring circus veering from drama to comedy back to drama, or perhaps an emotional heavyweight bout that went on much longer — and with more actual ferocity — than the legendary Cassius Clay-Sonny Liston rematch knockdown of May 1965.
So much for that ankle monitor! How can the FBI keep tabs on White Collar's reformed con man Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer), when he has vengeance on his mind? "Neal is taking justice into his own hands," reveals Bomer of tonight's mid-season finale (9/8c, USA), in which he constructs an elaborate grift to confront his ex-girlfriend Kate's murderer.
When it happens, don't expect him to stick to the rules. "A lot of moral lines get crossed," Bomer says. "When it comes to Kate, he doesn't always make the most rational, healthy decisions." Naturally, this will create tension between him and straitlaced Fed Peter Burke (Tim DeKay). The trust between the partners remains "always liquid, never rock solid," Bomer says.
Sons of Anarchy
Sons of Anarchy
When we left Charming last December, Ethan Zobelle (Adam Arkin) was leaving as well, and as Season 3 begins, Gemma's hot-footin' out of town herself: Stahl (Ally Walker) framed her for the murder of gunrunner Edmund Hayes, so she's a fugitive. Gemma will seek out her dad (Hal Holbrook), a retired preacher, tonight. But the new season's biggest story line promises to be the kidnapping of Jax's son, Abel. SAMCRO members are pretty sure that Hayes' father, Cameron, took the boy, but they don't know where he is. Nor do they know if the boy is dead or alive.
