ask matt

Bakula, with Vanessa Ferlito@TVGMMattRoushAmerica’s top TV critic Matt Roush answers your burning questionsWhat is it with the same-old, sameold ending for season finales? NCIS: New Orleans showed Pride (Scott Bakula) shot at the end. Hasn’t the age of the “Who Shot J.R.?” cliffhanger gone by? When are shows going to do something more creative? I also want to cheer Blue Bloods, which did have a terrific, upbeat ending that was very refreshing. More shows should follow their lead!—DonnaMATT ROUSH: I couldn’t agree more.

More than 18 million viewers tuned in for the March premiere, prompting a lightning-fast Season 2 renewal.While Disney CEO Robert Iger said, “There was only…

The Blacklist’s James SpaderOh (top) and Comer in Killing Eve (VIRGINIA SHERWOOD/NBC; FX)THE AMERICANS FX’s Cold War spy thriller concluded its six-season run with startling choices and great loss. After finally confirming that his friends Philip (Matthew Rhys) and Elizabeth (Keri Russell) were Soviet spies, FBI agent Stan (Noah Emmerich) let them escape. “He intended to take them in,” says Emmerich, “but chose humanity over duty.” The couple returned to the U.S.S.R. but lost their kids, making a heartbreaking decision to leave innocent son Henry (Keidrich Sellati) in boarding school, while spy-in-training Paige (Holly Taylor) changed her mind about departing the U.S. and sneaked back to D.C. “The show has a tragic ending,” says Rhys, “but it is a fair one.”—Ileane RudolphTHE BLACKLIST FBI agent Elizabeth Keen should have believed…
