'Daredevil' bosses: getting Punisher & Elektra 'a pretty big Christmas morning'

Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez are the latest showrunning team for the Netflix superhero drama

Usually, when a TV show is on its third set of showrunners before its second season has begun, it's the sign of major creative trouble. With Netflix's Daredevil — which almost everyone (myself included) really liked last year — it's been a sign that the previous showrunners were too in-demand to stick around for very long. Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods, The Martian) started out as the man in charge, but left early in the first season to work on the (since-canceled) Spider-Man spin-off movie The Sinister Six. Spartacus creator Steven DeKnight came in to steer the ship for the rest of season 1, but didn't want to stick around long term, given other opportunities (one of which turned out to be directing Pacific Rim 2).

Why Alison Wright knows more about 'The Americans' than 'Poor' Martha does

On wigs, accents, bad fashion, and a lot more from one of the show's best performers

On The Americans, Alison Wright plays Martha Hanson, the dowdy, plain, timid secretary to FBI counter-intelligence agent Gaad, and secret wife to Clark, one of the many aliases of Matthew Rhys' KGB deep cover operative Philip Jennings. In real life, Wright is striking in appearance, speaks loudly and confidently in her native English accent, and dresses far more stylishly (here's what she wore when I interviewed her in January) than her alter ego. In other words... acting!

Ask Alan: Mike Milligan vs. Johnnie Cochran, great TV musical numbers, and more

Will 'Flash' star Grant Gustin have the busiest season in TV history?

Happy Friday, everybody! Time for another Ask Alan. In this week's episode, we start right off with a question that has no right — or wrong — answer: who should win in an Emmy faceoff between Fargo's Bokeem Woodbine and The People v. O.J. Simpson's Courtney B. Vance? Then I pick some — but by no means all — of my favorite musical numbers from non-musical TV shows, before another showdown of sorts: Grant Gustin as Barry Allen vs. Richard Belzer as John Munch for most ubiquitous character in TV history.

Review: How Amazon's 'Bosch' figured itself out for season 2

No serial killers, a more fleshed-out supporting cast, and improvements everywhere

Titus Welliver's righteous LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch begins the second season of Amazon's Bosch on suspension for a stunt he pulled when last we saw him. Shaving off the beard he grew during his time away from the job, he playfully considers sticking with some mutton-chop sideburns and/or a mustache, before finally chopping it all off to the great relief of his daughter Maddie.
