February 19, 2013 | By Mary McNamara, Los Angeles Times Television Critic
No art form is more sensitive to social media than television. Over the years, shows as disparate as "Grey's Anatomy," "Mad Men" and "The Colbert Report" widened and intensified their fan bases through Twitter, Facebook, network websites and YouTube, making devotion just as important as ratings in defining a show's success. But there can be a dark side to this intensity; a fan's feeling of ownership can erupt in vitriolic hysteria when a beloved character is killed or an episode doesn't deliver - the social-media furor over the first season finale of "The Killing" almost got the show canceled.

Gov. Pete Wilson has one advantage over his presidential opponents. Many of us would vote for him just to get him away from California. ROBERT KNEPPER Lakewood

That's Monsieur T-Bag to you. Robert Knepper is trying to get a lot done in a little time, calling during lunch on the set of his TV show "Prison Break," on which he plays the complicated, omnivorous villain/hero-by-default Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell. "We're doing an impossible schedule today, trying to get everything done in the usual 12 hours," he says with enthusiasm as he eats.

For a companion article to "Reforming Street Addresses--Lost Angeles" (Oct. 29), how about one on businesses putting address numbers on their buildings visible from the street? You can drive for blocks on L.A. streets without seeing a visible address--lots of phone numbers but no building numbers. ROBERT KNEPPER Lakewood

I read the article on Luis Reyes and his book "Hispanics in Hollywood" ("Hollywood's Latinos, Then and Now," by Lorenza Munoz, Oct. 15) all the way through to see if there would be mention of Anthony Quinn, probably the most famous name in the Hispanic Hollywood pantheon. Not a word. Do they perhaps realize that a branch of the Los Angeles County library is named after him because it is built on a lot that once held Quinn's childhood home? How many actors can say that a public library is named after them, for whatever reason?

I am a relatively young reader of The Times Sports page, but Mal Florence has been a constant in my readership. Although I only knew him as a Morning Briefing writer, I always appreciated him as a classic, witty sportswriter. As an avid USC football fan, I lament the lost opportunity to have read Mr. Florence's work as the beat writer for Trojan football in particular and Los Angeles sports in general. I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation for the manner in which The Times celebrated Mr. Florence's life and career.

Re "Man With Sword Kills 2 at Grocery," June 30: "As he roamed the store, employees armed with barbecue utensils, mayonnaise jars and trashcan lids tried to corner him." Oh, for one person with a CCW [concealed carry weapon] permit. Robert Knepper Lakewood
