Q: I watch The Closer, and in one plot­line, Kyra Sedg­wick and Kevin Ba­con’s daugh­ter, Sosie Ba­con, played Sedg­wick’s niece. I was im­pressed with her act­ing abil­ity. Has she per­formed in any­thing else? — Pat Pochiro, Youngstown, Ohio

A: Her only pro­fes­sional credit be­fore her run on her mom’s TNT show was the 2005 movie Lover­boy, in which she played — of all things! — her mother’s char­ac­ter at a younger age. And the di­rec­tor of that film just hap­pened to be ... Kevin Ba­con. At this point, then, Sosie’s act­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties would seem to owe to her fam­ily con­nec­tions. That’s not to say it al­ways will be that way, though.

Q: Why was Ed­die Cib­rian’s char­ac­ter, Jesse, killed off at the start of this sea­son of CSI: Mi­ami? — Terry Lof­tus, Lake­wood, Colo.

A: The ac­tor’s op­tion for an­other year of the CBS crime drama wasn’t picked up — in large part to make way for Adam Ro­driguez to re­turn to the cast full time as Eric Delko — so it was one sea­son and out for Cib­rian. With the way the cliffhanger left vir­tu­ally all the reg­u­lar char­ac­ters in peril, hav­ing Jesse not sur­vive the bi­o­log­i­cal at­tack on the lab was a sim­ple way to write Cib­rian out of the show.

Q: How come full ver­sions of The Men­tal­ist can’t be found on Clips are there, but not full ver­sions. — Burt An­geli, Kings­ford, Mich.

A: In all like­li­hood, it re­lates to the net­work’s ar­range­ment with the show’s stu­dio ... in that case, Warner Bros. Tele­vi­sion. While net­works make many se­ries episodes avail­able to view on­line af­ter their broad­casts, it’s not the sit­u­a­tion with ev­ery sin­gle show. The pro­duc­tion com­pany has to agree to that, and in most cases where se­ries are missing from net­work web­sites, it has to do with what is (or isn’t) in the con­tract.
