It's much later than planned — though at least in time for me to finally get the ol' "Veronica Mars" poster hung up in my new office space — but it's time for another installment of Ask Alan. The hope — and we mean it this time — is to get these videos back on a bi-weekly schedule.

This was recorded before my current vacation, so I had to stay away from a few questions where conditions on the field could have changed in my absence, and I wound up talking about NBC's novel release plan for "Aquarius," and did my best (with limited information) to answer the ever-popular "What shows should I catch up on?"

As always, you can send questions to, and please put "Ask Alan" in the subject line. (Clicking on this link does all that for you.) Try to keep the questions tightly-phrased, though if you're asking for some kind of viewing recommendation, information on both what you like and what you've already seen is very useful.

See ya in the next video, Jack.
