Ask Alan: The best shows-within-shows, and cliffhangers that didn't surprise

What shows were ruined for Alan by reviewing them weekly?

Happy Friday, everybody, and it's a pleasantly surprising one for me. Due to some scheduling complications with our video team, I thought there wouldn't be an Ask Alan ready for today. But it turns out the one I recorded earlier this week got completed before life got busy for the video guys. That said, there's a good chance that this will be the last Ask Alan for a couple of weeks, and hopefully not longer than that.

Goodbye to 'The Good Wife,' whose heroine only let you see what she wanted you to

The Julianna Margulies legal drama has had its ups and downs, but was memorable for a long time

Midway through the penultimate episode of The Good Wife, Julianna Margulies' Alicia Florrick is presented with evidence of yet another one of her husband Peter's infidelities. Alicia, who's long been secretly estranged from Peter, is unfazed by the news, viewing it simply as useful to his defense in a corruption trial, until she notices that the man who brought it to her — rival lawyer Louis Canning (Michael J. Fox) — seems disappointed by her lack of emotion.
