Happy Friday, everybody! In this week's Ask Alan, I take questions on whether certain Peak TV shows won't age particularly well, which showrunners have the most impressive "writers tree" of all(*), and whether TV's increased serialization makes it harder to air episodes out of order these days.

(*) One I had in my notes but neglected to mention when I recorded this: Susan Harris, who on "Golden Girls" alone employed future show creators Marc Cherry, Mitch Hurwitz, and the "Modern Family" Christopher Lloyd.

You can watch the video embedded at the top and bottom of this post.

As always, you can send questions to askalan@hitfix.com.
