Watching the Watchtower: Yes, I've Seen the "Battlestar Galactica" Season Finale

Since I've already gotten dozens of emails today asking if I've seen the third season finale of Battlestar Galactica, I'll answer an emphatic yes here for all to see.

That said, no, I can't tell you what happens and, no, I am contractually obligated not to reveal any spoilers, but all I will say is this: do not, under any circumstances (save maybe an invasion into your home by the Cylon fleet), miss the final five minutes of Sunday night's BSG episode ("Crossroads, Part Two").

The episode's final moments will blow your mind and forever alter the series, even more so than last season's wrap-up in which the show jumped a year into the future and showed our favorite Colonial Fleeters living on New Caprica. Uh-uh. That doesn't compare with the complete and utter mindmelt that's in store for Battlestar Galactica fans on Sunday.

You've been warned. Miss it at your own peril.

Damn! I knew you'd already seen it. Lucky bastard. I can't wait to see it. Can't you give us a little hint? Do we get to see the final five Cylon models???

I didn't know you had seen this! And I've spent all week looking for someone -- ANYone -- to discuss it with!

And, yes, fans will go insane.

I am so excited for the finale, and considering the finale spoiler is on, I'm quite surprised with myself that I've showed such self-restrain and not spoiled the finale for myself.

Warning should be given: The episode is scheduled to run long. So if you think you've set your machinery so as not to miss the last five minutes, you might miss the last three minutes.

Dude? "Set your machinery"? What century are you living in? It's called TIVO. Look into it. Guess what? It even knows BSG is going run over 3 minutes.

Having heard how great this series is from a number of people and finally clueing in, I've spent the last two weeks watching it in its entirety from the first mini-series right up to Crossroads Part 1. Time well wasted! I'm looking forward to the finale, but at the same time preparing myself for the withdrawals I experience every time I digest a whole series or season in a short period of time.

Wes, dude, I live in the century where the networks send out misinformation about start and stop times, so that even with the programmed overrun, you *still* miss the last minute of the show. You don't watch anything on NBC or ABC, I gather.

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.

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision
