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.

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

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 .

Me Want Food: Jenna Gets Famously Fat on "30 Rock"

I don't know about you, but I've already ordered my "Me Want Food" t-shirt from the NBC store. Last night's episode of 30 Rock ("Jack Gets in the Game") was, in my opinion, one of the strongest of the series and has officially pushed the zany comedy into the realm of Arrested Development : deftly plotted and intricately layered, with so many jokes piled atop of jokes that it requires several viewings in order to catch them all. While at its heart, 30 Rock is a workplace comedy, it's left that narrow pigeonhole behind to become a witty example of how intelligent and taut humor can work (and flourish) on television... and exist in harmony with hilarious throwaways like the Thriller -inspired Werewolf Bar Mitzvah music video that would have done the AD crew proud. I want Will Arnett to appear on this series whenever possible. His gay exec Devin is hilarious, manipulative, and has an inexplicable weakness for Kenneth the Page, but he claims to have
