Al Halpern's letter (TV Times, June 2) voiced disappointment in the last episode of "Dallas" (CBS, May 3), but that was nothing compared to the last episode of "thirtysomething" (ABC, May 28). How could the writers of the marvelous show traumatize it's loyal fans by not tying up the loose ends better than they did. The possibilities were endless. Susan J. Becker, Oxnard

How do you punish Springfield's ultimate grade-school delinquent? A 10-year-old troublemaker who has been disciplined hundreds of times over the last 24 years? In Sunday's episode of "The Simpsons" on Fox, Bart is sentenced to the harshest form of pre-pubescent spirit crushing: classical-music lessons. The severity cannot be underestimated. After rejecting sliding-whistle lessons from Sideshow Mel, sitar instruction from Comicbook Guy and a theremin odyssey courtesy of Prof. Frink, Bart agrees to piano lessons after he espies the attractive Russian teacher Zhenya (the voice of Jane Krakowski)

NEW YORK -- As Zach Braff and the people behind “Veronica Mars” could tell you, crowd sourcing isn't a half-bad way to raise some money for a film. But can it enable new forms of creativity too?

David Morrissey has cast a wide shadow over "The Walking Dead" in its third season as the much anticipated villainous leader known as the Governor. While the character is a sinister presence with a black eye patch and a closet full of zombie heads, Morrissey in real life is upbeat and chatty as he talks from rainy London, which is his home. In Sunday's episode, "Arrow in the Door," Morrissey's Governor finally had a sit-down with his arch nemesis, Rick, played by Andrew Lincoln.

The "Simon & Simon" episode on March 5 was excellent. It brought out not only what our soldiers went through 20 years ago, but also what these same men are experiencing now. My only criticism is that the episode should have been longer, maybe a two-hour special. When dealing with a subject such as this, handled as well as this was, CBS should have given it more air time. Congratulations to Gerald McRaney and everyone else who had a part in this episode. Lindsay Soderlund, Glendale
