I Heart Veronica Mars: Waxing Nostalgic for Neptune

I've been suffering through some serious Veronica Mars withdrawal lately. Even though the series only ended about a month ago, I feel as though it's been eons since we've caught up with the gang in Neptune... or what's left of them after the finale's high body count. Hell, I even miss Jackie.

So imagine my surprise when I stumbled onto a bunch of homemade Veronica Mars music videos. The first one captures some of the memorable moments of the Veronica-Logan-Duncan love triangle, all set to the haunting strains of Mono's "Life in Mono." (Despite the video's end credits, it's most definitely a Mono song and not Portishead. I know my Portishead.) So crack open a cursed Lost numbers fortune cookie, sit back, and prepare to get a severe case of the sniffles.

But if you're looking for a Veronica Mars fix that's a little less, well, overtly maudlin, here's one of my personal favorites, "The Veronica Mars Rewind Video," set to Coldplay's song, "The Scientist."

Actually, that's making me a more than a little too nostalgic for Veronica & Company. At least Veronica Mars' second season DVD comes out August 22nd. In fact, I think I'll be pre-ordering mine at Amazon today.

The British political satire "so sharp you could cut yourself on it." (According to yours truly, anyway.) On the final installment of The Thick of It, Hugh finds his new offices rather disappointing.

Now I miss it even more, since Q & I finished watching season 1. Is it August 22nd yet? I'm thinking that's a good thing to ask for my birthday.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous seas
