Happy Friday! We don’t always do immediate follow-ups to Ask Alan questions, but one of this week’s emailers gave me a very obvious counter for last week’s discussion of whether The Walking Dead is the most overrated TV show ever.

In addition, I talked about one of my favorite examples of a long-gestating plot point finally paying off, and got a chance to talk about my favorite current TV show, The Leftovers. (For those wondering about the Person of Interest road map I allude to in that discussion, it’s something Matt Fowler wrote for IGN.)
