'Glee', 'Episodes', 'Southland': Tube Talk Q&A

By and Daniel Sperling
We're back! Tube Talk is here yet again to save you from the uncertainties of the TV world. We're like superheroes, really. But where's our parade?

Anyway, scroll on below for answers to your questions about Glee, Leverage, Raising Hope and many more.

When will the second half of season one of The Lying Game be shown on Channel 5?

As is often the case, the UK broadcaster is mimicking the pattern set by a US network. So, just as ABC Family put The Lying Game on hiatus between October last year and January 2012, the show is taking a little break right now on 5*.

There's still no concrete word on when the show will return, but as soon as Channel 5 confirm a date, we'll get back to you with all the info. There's ten episodes left to air of season one and, when it eventually airs, ep 11 'O Twin, Where Art Thou?' will pick up back at Sutton's birthday bash!

And while you wait, why not check out our interview with Lying Game star Adrian Pasdar, who plays the scheming Alec Rybak?

I know that FX is showing season three of Leverage but is there any word on season four?

Which do you want first - the good news or the really great news? FX UK also has the rights to the latest season of Leverage and - even better - they'll be airing season four straight after the third season finishes its run!

Yep, the two seasons will run together without a break - season four begins on Friday, May 29 at 10pm with 'The Long Way Down Job', so mark that date in your calendars!

What's more, it doesn't look like there's an end in sight for Leverage any time soon. "We all still love it, so I'm really looking forward to starting the fifth season," Gina Bellman (Sophie) recently told Digital Spy.

Is More4 going to show the fourth season of Southland? I love that show!

So do we! The good news on this front is that More4 does have the UK rights to the gritty cop drama's fourth run. The bad news? You guessed it - as yet, there's no confirmed air date for the new episodes. Again, we'll keep you in the loop once more details emerge!

In other related news, Southland is also close to being picked up for a fifth season in the US. Warner Bros TV and TNT are said to be battling it out over the final episode count, but the show will return for either 10 or 13 episodes. Whatever the final tally, here's hoping that More4 continue to stick with this terrific drama!

Any news on season two of Raising Hope being shown in the UK?
Spring. That's all that Sky has confirmed so far I'm afraid. But summer begins shortly, so you shouldn't have too long to wait now. As ever, we'll keep you in the loop if we learn any more.

Also, you might be interested to know that Raising Hope's been renewed for a third season in the US. So expect to see that... oh... this time next year?



What's this about a Glee tribute to Saturday Night Fever?

Yes, in what is either the best or worst idea ever, tonight's Glee episode is indeed a tribute to disco. It's called 'Saturday Night Glee-ver' (shudder) and includes covers of 'Stayin' Alive', 'Disco Inferno', 'More Than A Woman' and other tracks lifted from John Travolta's iPod.

Don't worry, there's a plot too! This week Santana (Naya Rivera) and Brittany (Heather Morris) make a sex tape, Mercedes (Amber Riley) considers leaving for New York and an old face returns to stir things up. After that we've got another tribute episode coming next Thursday, this time to the late Whitney Houston, and then the epic finale is in our sights. So enjoy it while you can, Gleeks!

When is Episodes back? I need Matt LeBlanc in my life.

You're in good company. We're also big fans of the former Friends star's not-quite-a-comedy-but-funnier-than-a-drama. Series two of Episodes, a joint production between the BBC and US network Showtime, begins over in the States on July 1.

Now last year, episodes of... Episodes aired in the UK just one day after the US, so we'd expect to see it back in early July. There's bound to be tons of trailers and sneak peeks in the coming weeks, so stick around. Until then, why not marvel at this amazing promo pic of LeBlanc, Tamsin Greig and Stephen Mangan? Love that tagline.

Is White Collar going to come back? Is Person of Interest, Awake, A Gifted Man coming over here?

Blimey, that's a lot of shows you want answers for. But we like a challenge, so here we go - White Collar was actually covered in a previous Q&A; basically Sky Living has dropped it and nobody else appears to want it, but there's a DVD coming out in July.

JJ Abrams's latest project Person of Interest and the Patrick Wilson-starring A Gifted Man don't have UK broadcasters either. But there is some good news regarding Awake - the critically-acclaimed drama featuring Jason Isaacs will begin on Sky Atlantic on May 4. Now nobody ask us about four shows again, we're exhausted.
