I'm staying relatively clear of 24 spoilers, but the commercials have me amped. In your opinion, might the show return to form after the disastrous Season 6? Also, is Tony's true agenda revealed by the end of the four-hour premiere? — Mike
MATT: My full review of the premiere is forthcoming, but in a nutshell, I see some promise for this cycle, though a few of my expectations for this new "day" were quickly dashed — and part of that bittersweet taste comes from "revived" Tony's true motivation. P.S. How surprised was I to see that someone who was alive at the end of the Redemption TV-movie is now suddenly dead? Kinda explains the awkward pause I got in one of my recent 24 video Q&As.
Leverage is almost halfway through its first season. When we can expect to hear whether it has been renewed? And is there anything coming up to "scoop"? — Candy
TIM: TNT says it's premature to speculate on Season 2, so shame on you, Candy. But we're happy to scoop that in next week's caper, "The Wedding Job," Christian Kane's Eliot winds up in a nasty knife fight while playing chef at a mob wedding. "I'm Cherokee Indian, and I've been throwing knives my whole life ... playing with 'em and collecting 'em," says Kane, who is also a real-life cook. "It just happened to work out that Eliot doesn't like guns."
Could you please tell me which Smallville episode Allison Mack will direct this season and what the title is? — Robin
MATT: Allison will venture behind the cameras for the first time for Episode 13, "Power." There, she will call the shots when one of the reasons Lana came back to town is revealed. (Word is that it's considerably shocking.)
