Question: I was a fan of "The Bridge" on FX. It was discontinued, and one of those horror programs is in its place. I wonder why "The Bridge" was taken off, and will it continue sometime?
Answer: As has been noted here before, some shows, especially on cable, have relatively short seasons, so it seems as though they have been cut off when, in fact, they have just ended their seasonal run. "The Bridge" is one of those. Its 13-episode first season has aired, and it will be back for a second season in 2014.
Q: It was reported earlier that CBS was putting on a program titled "Intelligence" starring Josh Holloway, one of my favorite actors from "Lost." It was supposed to start in the fall but has not been on. I wonder what happened to it.
A: When CBS announced its 2013-14 schedule in May, "Intelligence" was on it -- but always as a midseason series. In order to put on large-scale thrillers but not overwork the idea, CBS planned to have "Hostages" in the 10 p.m. Monday slot through the fall, and then have "Intelligence" succeed it in the winter. And so it will be, with "Intelligence" premiering Feb. 24.
Q: I remember a program titled "Whatever Happened to the Class of '65?" Can you tell me something about it and if any episodes are available on CD or online?
A: I think you are remembering the show "What Really Happened to the Class of '65?"
It aired on NBC in 1977-78 and was inspired by a book of the same name by Michael Medved and David Wallechinsky.
While the book was about a real-life high-school class, the TV series dealt with the graduates of the fictional Bret Harte High School. Tony Bill played Sam Ashley, a member of the class, who was the narrative link to the episodes about different individual graduates.
"The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows" says other actors on the show included Leslie Nielsen, Larry Hagman and Jane Curtin. I do not know of an authorized DVD, nor have I found it streaming online, other than a clip of the theme song on YouTube.
