The showbiz world is full of middle aged leading men playing with actresses 20 years their junior.

One of the truisms of showbiz casting is that, although men may generally show some age, women must not, and must look like they are in their 20s.

Sarah Michelle Gellar is 38, so she is no longer a spring chicken, although still very attractive. Williams is 62, so he's 24 years older than she. My first daughter wasn't born until I was 27.

The Killing makes its comeback tonight, this time with the promise that the case will be solved this season.

And Matt Smith is leaving Doctor Who at the end of the year: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-22745398.

Game of Thrones fans can say good-bye to Rob Stark. But readers of the novels were just waiting for the shoe to drop. A couple of Lannisters still to go, but I suppose that will be next year.

The Killing got off to a good start, moody and with strong incidentals, such as Sarah's interrupting her run to go back home for a gun, to kill that poor suffering cow -- shows both her compassion and her ability to take action.

I'm sorry Matt Smith is leaving Doctor Who; I'd hoped for at least one more season from him. He's my second favorite Doctor, after Tom Baker.

Burn Notice returns tomorrow night for its final season, in case anyone's watching it. I think Scribbler was the big fan here.

I forgot to mention Graceland debuts tonight as well. It's supposed to be a break from USA's usual boilerplate crime shows, and maybe it is. We'll see.

The Borgias has been cancelled.

Major Crimes returns tomorrow night, along with new series King and Maxwell, starring Jon Tenney with a different blond. Both on TNT.

Sorry to hear The Borgias is ending, but at $45 million per 10 episodes, it couldn't go on forever. Last night's episode had a powerful father/son scene (Jeremy Irons and François Arnaud) that the show has been building up to since the first season.

Yes, that was a strong scene. I've been growing increasingly impressed by Arnaud, whom I don't remember ever having seen before.

Well, King and Maxwell is glib and cliché-ridden, right down to guessing a computer password. I liked Jon Tenney better when he wasn't scruffy. Graceland might be okay, once it gets past its frat-boys-at-play bonding scenes. Major Crimes still has the Rusty blight, but the surprising thing about the first episode was the diminished nature of Sharon's role. Provenza looked more like the star than she did.
