The 'Breaking Bad' finale, revisited

Looking back at the end of Walter White

It's been nearly a week since the "Breaking Bad" series finale aired, and while my opinion hasn't changed much from what I wrote on Sunday night, there are a few odds and ends I wanted to touch on while they're on my mind, coming up just as soon as I suggest you get a bigger knife...

Series premiere talkback: 'Welcome to the Family' & 'Sean Saves the World'

What did everybody think of the new NBC sitcoms?

I briefly reviewed both "Welcome to the Family" and "Sean Saves the World" yesterday. Now it's your turn. For anyone who tuned into either one, what did you think? With "Welcome to the Family," did you find yourself enjoying one family more than the other? Did you want to see Mike O'Malley and Ricardo Chavira duke it out in the boxing ring? Are you invested in the teen lovebirds at all? With "Sean Saves the World," did you enjoy all the slapstick? Linda Lavin and Sean Hayes both performing at top volume? Tom Lennon (and I highly recommend reading our interview, if only for the section on "the mustache discount") having a 'stache and doing weird things? Megan Hilty not singing? And will you watch either one again?

Have at it.

Series premiere talkback: 'The Millers'

What did everybody think of the new CBS sitcom?

I briefly reviewed "The Millers" yesterday. Now it's your turn. For those of you who tuned in tonight, what did you think? Are you sad to have Margo Martindale farting here rather than returning to "The Americans," or do you agree with her that fart jokes are just funny? Did you enjoy the big dance number? Beau Bridges' technological difficulties? JB Smoove's bemusement at the behavior of white people? Will Arnett in his second vaguely human network TV role in a row? And will you watch again?

Have at it.

'Scandal' and Olivia/Fitz as the best/worst couple of them all

How the Shonda Rhimes drama works whether you love or hate the central pairing

"Scandal" — Shonda Rhimes' delightfully insane drama about Washington, DC fixer Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington), her team of crisis managers, and the President of the United States (Tony Goldwyn) with whom she's been having an on-again, off-again affair for years — is back for a third season tonight at 10 on ABC. I've seen the premiere, and it's very strong, as it deals with the fallout from Olivia and Fitz's relationship being leaked to the media, and from the revelation — which would be absurd on many a "serious" drama but which works just fine here — that Joe Morton's shady intelligence boss is actually Olivia's estranged father. (Morton and Washington share a scene early in the premiere that's dynamite, and not just because it's one of the few moments in the run of the show that so much as alludes to Olivia's race and the complications it causes in this situation.)

Tom Lennon talks 'Sean Saves the World' and 'the mustache discount'

How does the 'Reno 911' alum benefit from his facial hair?
NBC’s “Sean Saves the World” (it debuts tonight at 9) is pretty much what you would expect it to be: a very loud (in both the performances and the laugh track) multi-cam sitcom in which Sean Hayes gets to do Sean Hayes things as a single dad who works for an online retail company.
The one part of the show that’s unexpected — and that I enjoyed the most — is Tom Lennon’s performance as Hayes’ evil, peculiar, mustachioed boss. At press tour, I spoke with the “Reno 911” alum and veteran screenwriter (he and frequent collaborator Ben Garant recently teamed up to co-direct “Hell Baby,” which Drew liked a lot) about being an acting gun for hire, his fondness for playing weirdoes and (with some input from his wife Jenny) the advantages of regrowing the old Lt. Dangle ‘stache.

Series premiere talkback: 'Ironside'

What did everybody think of Blair Underwood in the new NBC cop drama?

I briefly reviewed NBC's "Ironside" this morning. Now it's your turn. For those of you who tuned in to watch Blair Underwood in the very loose remake of the Raymond Burr cop show, what did you think? Too much like "House" or not enough? Do you find Ironside an interesting character, and/or do you think Underwood is giving an interesting lead performance? Do you care about any of his sidekicks? (And do you miss Pablo Schreiber's "Orange Is the New Black" 'stache?) Do you want more of Brent Sexton, whether in the present or in flashbacks to an able-bodied Ironside? Did the case itself interest you at all? And will you watch again? 

Have at it.

Series premiere talkback: 'Super Fun Night' - 'Anything for Love'

What did everybody think of Rebel Wilson in the new ABC sitcom?

I briefly reviewed ABC's "Super Fun Night" this morning. Now it's your turn. For those of you who tuned in tonight, what did you think? Did you love all the Spanx jokes? Did you find Rebel Wilson's American accent convincing and/or amusing? Did you enjoy her interplay with either her legal co-workers or nerdy best friends? Did you laugh? And will you watch again? 

Have at it, and keep in mind that this is at least the show's third attempt at a premiere, including the failed development at CBS and the pilot that ABC decided not to air for now.
