It’s been quite the week for TV, Roomies. And as we head into finale season, the info keeps pouring in!

Below is what I’ve dug up this week, but remember that I use your inquiries as a guide. Let me know what shows you want to know about! And you can do so (as always) in two ways: via e-mail spoilerroom@ew.com and via Twitter @EWSandraG.

FRINGE: EPS TEASE TRIPPIEST EPISODE SINCE ‘BROWN BETTY’
Full disclosure: I was originally going to preview tonight’s episode of Fringe for you, but honestly, I’m in such a pleasant mood over the renewal that I say we move on to bigger matters, like episode 19, airing April 15.

Before the big news, Jeff Pinkner and Joel H. Wyman hopped on the phone with me to tease an episode I’ve been dying to know more about ever since I heard a rumor that it would be Astrid-centered, which, it turns out, isn’t entirely the case. Oh, I’ll just let them explain.

JP: It’s kind of nutty and adventurous and really fun and emotional and character driven storytelling but…
JW: Just in a way you wouldn’t expect.
EW: Well John Nobel said at a convention, I think, that the core three are incapacitated in some way…
JP: [laughs] He’s a very clever man. They are incapacitated in some way. And yet we still follow their story.
EW: That’s a mean tease.
JP: It’s a very trippy episode.
EW: That’s a fair thing to say about most Fringe episodes.
JP: This one, more than some others.
JW: You know how “Brown Betty” was sort of a departure? It’s kind of like that.
EW: Whoa.
JP: Minus the singing.
JW: No singing, no.

Bonus scoop for those of you dying to know more about tonight’s episode: There’s not much I can tell you other than this quote from executive producer Jeff Pinkner. “It will take place back with Bolivia and some very monumental life experiences occur.” Cool? Cool.

JOY BRYANT ON PARENTHOOD‘s CROSBY and JASMINE: “THERE’S ALWAYS HOPE”
If your heart has been slowly breaking watching Crosby (Dax Shepard) and Jasmine (Joy Bryant) duke it out on Parenthood following his night with Gaby (Minka Kelly), you’re not alone. In fact, Bryant might want to see the two make up more than you do.

“I think everyone wants it to work out. He did a pretty lame thing. They definitely recognize that, and it’s going to get more complicated,” Bryant tells EW exclusively. “It’s just an uncomfortably situation for everybody.”

That discomfort will hit new levels in Tuesday’s new episode, she says, as we will see the embattled couple struggle more than ever with their hopes for reconciliation. “It’s a very, very tough, difficult situation between the two of them, and I think she’s holding up the best she could,” Bryant says. “I imagine it’s hard having a child with someone and then this happens. Because there’s the issue between the two people but there’s a child involved. You still have to maintain this relationship. You have to keep it together. It’s not easy. Ugh. Crosby and Jasmine — the saga!”

But as the show prepares to close out its second season and drama hits new heights with everyone in the family (As I’ve hinted: Amber becomes anything but a teenage dream, Julia and Joel’s baby plans hit a snag, and Max’s already rocky road gets worse before it gets better.), Bryant says there’s one thing to keep in mind, “There’s always hope.”

JOHN FRANCIS DALEY TEASES HIS MYTH-CENTRIC BONES EPISODE
When John Francis Daley took on the task of co-writing his first episode of Bones with writing partner Jonathan Goldstein, he knew it’d be a challenge to please Booth and Brennan fans with a relatively Sweets-heavy episode. (That was not his choice, by the way, but it turned out to be the situation after he learned Emily Deschanel and David Boreanz would have to split their time between filming the episode and the show’s spin-off, The Locator.)

“We have enough scenes with Booth and Brennan riffing on each other and being the ones to solve the crime, for the most part. I don’t think that the fan universe is going to be too upset — at least I hope,” he jokes. “I haven’t got any death threats yet.”

In the April 14 episode (which I teased a bit to you earlier), the team takes on a case that will force them to ponder many well-known myths (i.e.: crying religious statues, yetis) and delve into the team’s individual beliefs. “We show more of Booth and Brennan connecting in the sense that one of them believes one thing and the other believes another, and yet they figure out how they can both agree upon certain things,” Daley says. “In this case, Booth feels like there is the possibility of the existence of mythological creatures like this, as he would, and Brennan, who is strictly scientific, is always going to try and disprove that. But they meet on a middle ground in this episode, because she is willing to admit that there are things out there that science still hasn’t explained yet, and is open to the possibility of there being something else out there.”

Check InsideTV next week for more from my Q&A with John Francis Daley, where he talks writing and what it was like filming with his dad R.F. Daley, who has a cameo in the episode!

SIDE DISHES

ncis-los-angeles

Are there any hopes for Deeks and Kensi to get together on NCIS: LA? I have gotten all the girls in my office hooked [on the show], to the point now we are all going crazy. Please — we are in desperate need here. Thanks. — Christy
Well, I like desperation. It makes it more fun to tease you with quotes like this one from executive producer and creator Shane Brennan. “Deeks is handsome, funny and loyal. Kensi is smart, exotic and smoking hot. What was the question again? … Would we like to see Deeks and Kensi together? You bet! Will it happen? Characters have funny ways of taking you to unexpected places. We’ll all just have to hang in and see…”

Any Blue Bloods scoop? I started watching this show every week with my dad — mostly for him. But now I’m addicted. — Amy
Remember when Michael T. Weiss guested as the super creepy Det. Molevsky? Well, I can confirm he’ll be back before the end of the season. And I don’t know about you, but news of his return made me recall what he told Jamie earlier — “It can be dangerous out here.”

Desperate Housewives, please! — Nat
Have you heard about the secret death plot against Paul Young involving antifreeze-tainted casseroles? Yes, you say? Well, it doesn’t stay secret for long, but let’s just hope the truth comes out before anything bad happens at the school bake sale…

Okay, tell me now. Who’s getting married on HIMYM? Punchy, Barney, or Robin? — Nick
I know. You’re probably all confused after hearing that Michael Trucco (Fairly Legal, Battlestar Galactica) is going to guest as a possible love interest of Robin’s and that Nazanin Boniadi will return as Nora. And yes, that’s a pickle. If I had to guess, it won’t be Robin at the altar. A few sources confirm that Trucco will appear in only one episode of HIMYM this season … but an in-the-know person added that we shouldn’t rule out a return next season. This tells me he’ll play an important part, but not one as important as groom. That leaves Barney. But when we posed the question to Neil Patrick Harris, he was doubtful his character would be settling down soon. “Well, I think the combination of Marshall’s father passing away and Barney reconnecting with his father will certainly make him question just how long can you be a heartless and blind Lothario, but it’s kind of embedded in his DNA,” he tells EW. “So I don’t know he’ll necessarily become an entirely different person any time soon.” … Or NPH is a seasoned actor who knows how to throw people off the scent. As for Punchy … c’mon now. When was the last time Mother just handed us an answer? The mystery is part of the fun! (Using that logic, I’m sort of a fun-sucker. But let’s not talk about that.)

Shonda Rhimes said in last week’s column that Grey‘s “fans will feel she broke all her promises.” What does that mean? Pls. tell me it’s not Mer/Der! — @love_mcdreamy
She might be referring to Meredith or Derek or Meredith and Derek. But keep in mind that many promises have been made over the years … and breaking certain ones wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing.

I would love a P&R scoop! Are either Dave or Mark going to be written back into the series?? Thanks! — Natalie in Eagleton
That’s a negatory. Even though showrunner Mike Schur said last season that Mark could return this season, I’m told there’s nothing in the works for either of  them. Hey, you gotta give Brendanawicz some time to recover. It’s not every day a guy gets shat on by a bird while indoors.

How much of this war are we going to see on Supernatural. It would be kind lame for them not to show the thing they’ve been talking about all season, right? — Rachael
Lame? Probably not. My gut tells me it would be for a good reason. Misha Collins agrees with my gut. “We’re not going to see a whole lot of the actual war that’s taking place in heaven. We’re going to see how that plays out with respect to Sam and Dean and their world. But the two definitely collide in the season finale,” he says. Another thing we can expect not to see? Cas in 300-style angel battle gear. “I would love to have some sexy, feathery armor, but I’m not getting any. It’s the same frumpy trench coat and suit,” he laments.

Any scoop on Cas’s new angel buddy on Supernatural? — Krystal
I wouldn’t necessarily use the word “buddy.” More like “reluctant ally.” “It’s hard for Cas to figure out who’s on his side and who’s not,” Collins dishes. “There’s a lot of duplicity and spies.”

Thanks for all the scoopage on the Winchester boys … I’m torn between excitement and dread for the last episodes of the season. Just thinking that what’s left is all we might ever have makes me want to have a little Hunter’s Helper and pass out in grief! I was wondering if there is any word yet on whether we will have a season 7? Thanks! — Gia
Save some room for me at your table, because I think we’re going to need to lean on each other for support after a likely soul-killing finale. Actually, let me back up. The heartbreak really begins with “The Man Who Would Be King,” the first episode being directed by fan-fave writer Ben Edlund. “It’s the story of Castiel looking over his life, and then it turns into Castiel looking into his relationships,” he says. “If it does it’s job, it’ll break your heart.” As for the chances of a next season, Supernatural showrunner Sera Gamble tells me, “We’ve cliffhung this season, so if you want to know what happens, you have to tune into season 7. So we have to make one.”

Let’s get some Nikita action going on here, Sandra. Spoilers, please! — Ashlyn
In an upcoming episode, Nikita will put herself on the line (<< no news there) for a shocking reason: to help Division. There’s much more to this story…

Californication finale scoop, please? I haven’t heard a peep out of you. — Carla
The show doesn’t yank you along in the finale. You’ll learn Hank’s fate in the first few minutes … and let’s just say the result floors him. Also, there’s a dinner scene so insane (name-calling, vomit, a stabbing…), you won’t soon forget it. Peep.

I would love some news on Castle! — Jenna
I know what’s going to happen in the Castle finale! Well, the back of my head does, but the jerk ain’t talking. It’s a long story that I’ll tell you soon. Meanwhile, EW coverman Nathan Fillion has his own ideas, which he shared with us at the Los Angeles premiere of Super. “Hot air balloons and blow darts! … I actually have no idea what the finale is going to be. We haven’t seen it yet. But I am pitching blow darts and hot air balloons; I think those two things are golden. People will hear that and they will want to tune in. They’ll be like, ‘I need to see this.’ We’ll see if the writers take my notes into consideration.”

I bet you want real info, right? Okay, how’s this: You know how this season has been filled with great moments? My gut tells me something even more awesome this way comes…

Enjoyed all of the Castle info lately.  Next time you talk to the powers that be, let them know that we all think that the Nikki Heat books would make GREAT TV movies. Maybe for the summer, when we need that Castle fix. C’mon, it’s a great Idea! — Bill C
That’s not a question, Bill. But I agree. In general, I wish shows would use summer as vehicles to get people pumped about the next season. See: Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe (which airs April 17). In my dreams, summer would be a chance for prequels (Supernatural: Summer at Bobby’s, anyone?) and tie-ins galore (Kickpuncher: The Animated Movie?). Anything to stop me from getting obsessed with Big Brother (which always seems to happen despite my best efforts.)

We know some of the Glee kids are graduation-bound, but what about the gang on Community? — Luis
First, can we take a moment to celebrate renewal? Hip, hip … okay. That’s done. Now, to your question: No, I don’t see this happening any time soon. Well, at least certainly not for Pierce. Chevy Chase concurs: “Oh, probably not. He’s probably just going to stay at that school the rest of his life.” I’m okay with that.

So excited about the return of It’s Always Sunny! Scoop me? — Trevor
Casting is underway for a character named Roxy, who is not only a, um, lady of the night — but also someone’s potential wife!

Tim-Olyphant-Justified

Justified just keeps getting better and better. Any idea where all this is headed? Will next week have more of the Bennetts? That’s my favorite storyline. — Greg
There’s, indeed, some Bennett action coming up next week. The best scene? Raylan’s gitty fight scene with Coover. Unfortunately, I’d probably give the upcoming round to Coover, but something tells me Raylan’s not quite done with him.

Hi, Sandra. Really enjoy the part deaux Spoiler Room, and would like to know if The Defenders has a chance to be renewed.  I really enjoy the show and the camaraderie between Jim [Belushi] and Jerry [O’Connell]. It’s way better than Harry’s Law! Thanks! — scrlett
Bashing won’t save The Defenders, friend. Simmer down! As it stands, The Defenders is still making its case to the court of PTB. I think EW’s James Hibberd said it best when the show quietly closed out its season, “[The show] is below the line for what CBS is normally willing to accept on a night it generally wins. (Then again, that line is always moving, isn’t it?)”

Love your spoilers (and your recaps!). Can you tell me more about Parenthood? The Crosby/Jasmine break up is devastating. Is there hope for reconciliation? Thanks! — Caryn
See above. Just for you.

Peter & Neal getting stuck in elevator ep. — truth or rumor? — Lyn
Rumor. And a false one at that. Not a rumor, however? Next season, the team will be faced with one of their toughest tasks yet: Planning a child’s birthday party.

The Glades: Is it EVER coming back??? — Denise
Of course it is! I don’t have a specific return date for you, but I’m told season 2 will begin production in a matter of weeks and will premiere this summer.

I hate how we’re almost to May finale season. Sooooooo depressing. Any Big Bang scoop to make me feel better? — Lillian
Someone close to a member of the gang is going to face a medical crisis toward the end of the season — and it could lead to some significant developments. Doesn’t sound funny? It really is.

Dear Sandra and the lovely people of Spoiler Room, I love that you are all now appearing 2 times a week. It makes Tuesdays and Fridays just so much more awesome. Another thing I’m excited about? The fact that so many shows are returning from hiatus!! Now, onto my questions… Can I get some Make It or Break It scoop please? I heard Chelsea Hobbs is preggers for the second time … Will this play into her storyline (as kinda foreshadowed in the trailer)? And what about Neil Jackson aka Sasha Beloff? Please and thank you! — TV Addict
I’ll take the latter question. But what about Sasha do you want to know? A more appropriate question might be, “How hot does he look when we find him boxing shirtless in the first episode back?” And my answer would have been: Very.

    Great news about Supernatural. That comment from Sera MUST mean we are renewed mustn’t it? Can we actually start celebrating yet? Just announce it already – so the cast and crew can celebrate before they wrap for the season. We all know it has been a done deal for some time.

    • Jackie

      If ‘Supernatural’ comes back for a season seven – and based on Sera’s comments, it sounds like a definite possibility – that would make me ridiculously happy! More happy than any one person should be about a TV show. With all the stuff they’ve got going on, and knowing how catastrophic the finale is going to be, they can’t just end it there!

      • TJCrinc

        You must remember that every season ender (except s1) and every opener (except s6) has been epic!

    • Ferniesfreckles

      I think they already wrapped up for the season. They were filming the last episode when they got back from the Paley Festival.

    • Carrie

      I will be really depressed if “Supernatural” isn’t renewed for a 7th season. It sounds like Season 7 is very likely, though. The CW needs to make an early announcement like they have in the past and put us out of our misery.

  • Leithen

    The more Castle news, the better. I’m loving that show this season. It’s great in that it doesn’t take itself too seriously. It’s good, old fashioned TV, with a kind of flirtatious edge.

  • Kate

    I love Parenthood and as much as I hate seeing Crosby cry I’m kind of ok with him and Jasmine being over unless she gets a major attitude adjustment. I don’t normally advocate for cheating (although Ross would argue they were “on a break”), but I was actually rooting for it since they really did turn Jasmine into an emasculating shrew!! The last thing I want is to see Crosby having to beg and plead his way back if she isn’t going to change.

    • Zoe

      The problem is that Jasmine doesn’t love Crosby for who he is. She loves him for who she WANTS him to be. I would be totally OK with him and Jasmine being over. That would be a different “Parenthood” dynamic for the series: two unmarried, uncoupled people raising a child as ex-lovers/close friends. Not every couple on the show (besides Sarah) has to be married. I would love if they could explore a different type of parenting in this way. Maybe down the road they would even get back together, but it would be more organic. I always felt that they were getting together just because they had a son together–not because they were really in love or made an effort to understand each other.

      • Shereen

        People tend to judge Jasmine more harshly than the other characters on this show. I have never seen Jasmine as unkind to Crosby and i don’t see her not liking him for who he is. It is possible to love some one but not their bad habits.

      • Shereen

        I have never seen Jasmine criticize Crosby except their big fight when all gloves were off and they both said nasty things to each other. I would love to be reminded of Jasmine’s unkindness to Crosby. Ok Jasmine taught Crosby to use the laundermat, was that the unkind thing? She told him that they were a team and that he needed to be a father to his son not a friend, did this show she didn’t love him? Jasmine’s intentions towards Crosby are all good, she thinks he’s a wonderful music producer, she has told him on several occasions that she is proud of him and agreed that he is a ‘kick ass’ parent? In one area only Jasmine has expectations of Crosby, his role as a parent; parenting is serious business, Jasmine can’t just wait on Crosby to take his good ‘ole time to be a parent because Jabbar needs a mature responsible father now.
        Even if there were no Jasmine, Crosby would still have problems, the writers made that very clear long before Jasmine came on the scene. Crosby’s s/l is about his Journey towards maturity and adult responsibility; we aren’t supposed to like everything about him; we are meant to cheer him on as her overcomes adult challenges. Not be happy with who he is. His relationship with Jasmine is just one of those challenges. Crosby cannot go through his entire life as a charming player/ rogue; you cannot maintain a committed relationship or seriously raise a family with this attitude to life. This is what the writing has made very clear. Jasmine is not his problem…generally; he loves his life with her.
        Jasmine is perfect for Crosby, so she’s opinionated and controlling like all the other women on this show…but she is also a good, decent, selfless, career/family oriented, honest, responsible, sexy, beautiful woman. I would like to see them really work at reconciliation, I want to experience all their emotions as they struggle to get past this hurdle, I want to see them begin a new chapter in their lives together. Jasmine-the-baby-mama-forever does not excite me, neither does Jabbar-broken- home, nor does Crosby-the–co-parent.
        I don’t believe people want Crosby to remain single, they just don’t want him to marry Jasmine because they can’t identify with her; they can identify with Gaby though, and will support that relationship, even though she is a selfish damsel…GMAB!!!

    • *#$@

      i totally agree. she needs to be kinder to her man, it is called a partnership. i hope he ditches jasmine and calls gaby, who seems to be kind and supportive. and with her background in special needs she might actually to teach him how to communicate.

    • Marcy Runkle

      THANK YOU! If Jabbar wasn’t involved I’d be thrilled to have Jasmine out of the picture forever. How can you blame him for cheating on that emasculating shrew, as you so perfectly called her? I never liked their relationship. Shame it can’t work out with Minka Kelly – their chemistry was unbelievable. (Can it??!)

      • RH

        Yeah, it’s easier to believe there are no Crosby/Jasmine relationships in the world. Let’s maintain the status quo.

      • Courtney

        Oh, RH I wouldn’t jump to intolerance on Marcy’s part. My hubby and I are a Crosby/Jasmine and I’m not crazy about Jasmine’s treatment of Crosby either. He never knew he had a child and now that he does, he wants his own relationship with his son. Moms and dads often have different approaches and that’s fine, Jasmine and by extention, her mom just don’t show much respect for Crosby’s approach. Just because it’s different doesn’t make it lousy and Jasmine needs to get that.

  • tracy bluth

    I’m hoping this Roxy character is in one episode only. As we learned from “Mac Fights Gay Marriage” and “Dennis Gets Divorced” serious relationship story lines just don’t work on It’s Always Sunny.

  • jules

    There is a God. Finally reading a spoiler report that doesn’t include Glee. I know it was mentioned in a question but that was about it. Thank you!

    • Vivi

      Glad you’re happy, but I was looking forward to some Glee scoop.

    • Fridge

      I love Glee, but sometimes the amount of spoilers out there on it just gets old. Call me crazy, but every once in awhile I like not know all the details of the epidsode before I watch it.

      • Tego Livi

        Hear, hear….not about Glee (which I’ve never seen) but about a bunch of shows. I sometimes wonder how the stars, writers, and showrunners have time to make the show when they spend so much time giving “exclusive” info to every magazine and web writer on the face of the Earth.

  • danouk

    I think the promise shonda is going to break is the one of Mer/Der not having a baby.. I hope she is going to break that promise very soon!!

    • Portia

      I think it will be that they legalize their marriage.

  • cassi

    Thank you for the great Supernatural spoilers, now I’m really worried about Castiel! And the CW should stop playing with our emotions and make the renewal official. Even Fox has been nice and renewed Fringe!!! What are they waiting for? Blackmail, hate mail, flowers…

    • Dee

      I’m right there with ya. I’m very concerned for Castiel. I love the character, but have been disappointed with how the show has written him lately. I keep hoping they’ll eventually incorporate him more into “family,” but they seem more interested in using him sparsely and then mostly as comic relief. I really hope the show doesn’t end up killing him off though. I think there is still a LOT of potential for Castiel and I’d love to see it played out more. Plus, if they do kill him off, I think TPTB would not only be making a BIG mistake, but also seriously underestimating his popularity with fans.

      • TG21

        I disagree. I hope Cas is one of the two deaths in the finale and that he stays dead. Castiel is the epitome of a fan-service character and has long outlasted his usefulness to the boys and the storyline.

      • MJ

        what do you mean with two deaths in the finale?! I didn’t know there was a rumour about two people dying in the finale!!!
        You’re scaring me, specially since they’ve already killed pretty much everyone except Cas and Boby.

      • Roxas807

        Pretty sure the 2 deaths are Castiel and Lisa. They can’t kill bobby,(Well keep him dead at least) They never killed a kid on the show so Ben is safe. And everyone else that matters is already dead.

      • Jenn

        God, I hope one of them’s Lisa. And Ben, so we don’t get stuck with Hunters + kid in Season 7. Castiel has potential, but he’s too overpowered to be on the show often enough to have a real storyline and the “conflict” they’ve been generating between him and Dean is just stupid. What kind of angel would really advocate leaving a soul in hell? Talk about transparent plot devices.

  • piintn

    Would love for you to recap Detroit 1-8-7. It’s one of the better shows on TV, and could really use some help in getting the word out. If anyone loves Blue Bloods, you love this one!!!

    • ritaonthego

      i did not think anyone watched detroit 1-8-7 or blue bloods i love these shows. so i am also putting out the word for these show the word is excellent!!!!!

    • jay

      Blue Bloods is awesome. Everyone I work with watches it. Not a fan of Detroit 1-8-7 though…sorry.

  • Amy

    What happened to the rest of the interview with Thomas Gibson? You were supposed to let us know his thoughts on returning to Criminal Minds next season.

  • Qj201

    The cast of Community is safe for a while since it takes the typical student at a community college 4 years to finish their AA/AS degrees.

    • Tego Livi

      Those people aren’t really in college anyway–they show is actually a high school show starring adults, so they had to make it technically set in a community college. But no community college I’ve ever heard of is remotely like the one in the show.

      • Steph

        Haha, well it’s a good thing no community college is like Greendale…but you’d be surprised how there are people like these characters. Before I transferred to a university I spent a year at a community college and for two semester hung out with the strangest, most awesome group of people ever- from a high school girl taking college credit, to a smart-a.s.s. tattoed 26 year old guy (total heart of gold), to a mother of four, among others. All of whom I’m still friends with.

        It’s probably why I love Community- you find people like Troy, Abed, Jeff, Annie, Shirley….and well, luckily no Pierce where I was at. Haha.

  • sofia

    Last week you told us “Want more Gibson? (Of course you do!) Check ITV next week for additional goodies from our chat, including word on whether he’ll be back for CM‘s season 7!”. It’s “next week” now and you didn’t posted anything about Criminal Minds.

  • Lisa

    Chelsea Hobbs looks like a younger Colbie Smulders.

  • mewofford

    For those NCIS:LA fans who want Kensi and Deeks to get together, I wish you well. Over on the mothership, NCIS, I’ve been waiting almost 6 seasons for Ziva and Tony to get together and it ain’t happened. I think you’d better hunker down for a long wait.

    • Tego Livi

      NCIS:LA really isn’t the kind of show to do that type story anyway. It’s really more of a spy thriller than a police procedural (like the original) so any romantic storylines are likely to be brief, feature guest stars, and end quickly and tragically.

    • Jenn

      It probably depends on the opposition, as well. For NCIS, there are lots of no-romo fans who have no desire to see Tiva, and Shane Brennan’s been walking a fine line trying (and failing) to please both.

  • Mary

    I’m just not rooting for Jasmine- her character is so un-likeable.
    I love parenthood but I feel this way about half the characters: Hattie, Max, Jasmine and sometimes Monica Potter.. Whats up with that?

    • Kate

      I hadn’t thought about it until you said, but now that I think of it all my favorite characters on the show are guys. I’m not sure if the writing staff just doesn’t know how to write strong women or thinks that in order for them to be strong they must also be a shrew. Other than Sarah, the women are all pretty controlling. No wonder I always feel so bad when the guys on the show cry!! I think Max and Kristina took a big hit with the autism storyline being so prominent in the first season to the point where I think instead of making them sympathetic they just became annoying.

      • Marcy Runkle

        I agree with you, except that I think Amber is not only one of the best characters on the show, but one of the best on TV! A lot of that is how brilliantly she’s played by Mae Whitman. I don’t mind Kristina so much…I can understand her struggle to balance her overprotectiveness with letting go of her growing-up daughter.

      • Kate

        @ Marcy I do like Amber, problem is they don’t tend to use her much!!

      • Jill

        Amber is just about the only character I still like. They’ve systematically made all the others more and more annoying and unlikable, particularly (in my opinion) Kristina.

  • Carol

    Is Memphis Beat coming back or have I missed the cancellation news ? Thanks for the forum to get news about all our favorite shows.

    • Mags

      It’s coming back in June!! I just saw a promo the other day.
