Ask Alan, Episode 2: Surprise show of 2014 & ‘Six Feet Under’

I already know the number one question that will arise from our second installment of Ask Alan, and the answer is: yes, I do own other t-shirts, but completely forgot which one I had worn in the first installment when I got dressed for work the other day. Now I'm torn between trying to shake things up, wardrobe-wise, or turning the Flash tee into a uniform going forward, like that Texas teacher who wore the same outfit to picture day for 40 years.

Two questions this week, one dealing with the half-forgotten child of the HBO golden age, “Six Feet Under,” the other tying in neatly to yesterday's publication of my top 10 list for the year.

As usual, you can send questions to, 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.
