'New Girl', 'Castle', 'Big Bang Theory': Tube Talk Q&A

By
Another Thursday, another Tube Talk Q&A. Again you've been bombarding us with questions about your favourite shows, and again we've tried our best to provide you with some juicy, juicy answers.

This week, we've got the scoop on New Girl's return, Castle's disappearance and some bad news about The Hour. Scroll down to see it all!

I heard New Girl is returning soon. Hooray! What's the goss?

Yes, it won't be long now until we're finally reunited with Zooey Deschanel's Jess and her roommates/comic foils Schmidt (Max Greenfield), Nick (Jake Johnson) and Winston (Lamorne Morris).

The kooky comedy will be moving to E4 later this month after (whisper it) struggling slightly in its old Friday evening slot on Channel 4. Although it's not yet known where in the schedules New Girl will be plonked, we reckon it's a natural fit for E4's US comedy block between 8pm and 11pm on Thursdays.

That's currently comprised of The Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother, 2 Broke Girls, The B---- in Apartment 23 and Rules of Engagement. The only one of those shows that's on course to finish by the end of June is The Big Bang Theory, so that's probably where it'll end up. And speaking of which...

It's the Big Bang Theory finale tonight (June 7). Do Howard and Bernadette get married?

Well, we probably shouldn't tell you that. The penultimate episode of season five ended with Howard (Simon Helberg) deciding to go into space with the backing of his bride-to-be Bernadette (Melissa Rauch), even though his NASA mission clashes with their wedding day.

Viewers won't be kept in suspense for long though - you find out pretty darn early in the episode whether the pair actually do find the time to get married. The rest of the finale sees the entire gang (even Sheldon) turn out to give Howard a good send-off in a unique and touching way. Whether that'll occur during, say, dinner at the Cheesecake Factory or while he's getting married remains to be seen...

Where has Castle gone? It's been removed from the schedule and replaced with Big Brother

Not a fan of Brian Dowling, then? Nah, of course, we understand your frustration at Castle being bumped for the marathon reality show. It's a bit unfortunate that the Nathan Fillion crime series is occupying the time slot traditionally reserved for BB's Friday evictions (a TV staple for 13 years now), which is preceded by CSI: NY and NCIS - two shows that are always dependable in the ratings.

Channel 5 haven't announced a new air time for Castle's second season while Big Brother is on, so it just appears to be a case of there being nowhere else sensible for it go. Unfortunately for you lot, there's another celebrity version of Big Brother launching directly after its ten-week civilian series comes to an end, so you could be in for a long wait Castle fans. Our advice, either bite the bullet and skip ahead to season four in the meantime, which airs Wednesdays at 9pm on Alibi, or invest in the complete season two on DVD.

Any updates on when The Hour will be back?

Yes, but its bad news we're afraid. We got all excited when BBC Two's newsroom drama, starring the likes of Ben Whishaw and Dominic West, was moved forward in the schedules to June.

However, it seems that the corporation just can't agree on a time for The Hour, as series two has now been bumped back to late autumn. We imagine the last-minute reschedule is to spruce up and tweak the show to perfection, which we're all for if it makes this series as enthralling and compelling as the last. Fear not Hour fans, it'll likely be worth the wait.

I saw you talking about Russell Brand's new show last week. It looks good! When can we see it?

For those who missed it, that Russell Brand show being referred to is Brand X, where the controversial comedian will give his "unfiltered take on current events, politics and popular culture".

We previously revealed that Brand X will air in the US on FX from June 28, but we now know that those in Russell's native Britain will get to feast their eyes on this great beast from Monday, July 2 on Sky Atlantic. To whet your appetite, a trailer and quite a few teasers of the show itself have been released. Should be good, as long as nobody lets him near an answering machine.

Are Mary Margaret and David going to live happily ever after in Once Upon a Time?

Hmm, what do you think? We were just as happy as you lot when Mary Margaret (Ginnifer Goodwin) and David (Josh Dallas) finally gave in to their desires and smooched in the latest UK episode of Once Upon a Time this week. Then we discovered what's coming next...

It should come as no surprise that Regina (Lana Parrilla) is not happy about seeing them together and starts scheming against the budding couple immediately. The fallout will see one of David's relationships, either with Mary Margaret or his wife Kathryn, damaged beyond repair, and there's more tragedy still to come after the love triangle is broken.

Things are going to be similarly complicated for fairytale counterparts Snow White and Prince Charming. The memory-erasing potion Snow drank in the last episode (just after Prince Charming became single - go figure) is going to have a greater effect on her than anyone could ever have predicted - which could spell trouble for the Evil Queen.
