Welcome to 2015, and time for another installment of Ask Alan, where I take your questions about TV, past, present and future and try not to ramble too much in my answers.

This episode wound up covering a couple of shows I reviewed on the blog this week: "Togetherness" and "Banshee," while also touching on whether we should care at all about awards shows, especially in this age of Too Much Good TV. Hope you enjoy.

As usual, you can send questions to video@hitfix.com, and please put "Ask Alan" in the subject line. Or, to make your life easier, click this email link and it will do all of that for you. You just have to write the question yourself — and, as with the days of the Firewall & Iceberg video show, the more concise you can make your question, the better.

Alan Sepinwall has been reviewing television since the mid-'90s, first for Tony Soprano's hometown paper, The Star-Ledger, and now for HitFix. His new book, "TV (The Book)" about the 100 greatest shows of all time, is available now. He can be reached at sepinwall@hitfix.com
