Thank God For Second Chances: "Lost" Season Five Promo

Ever since we finally found out who the man in the coffin was (and saw the island disappear into the ether), I've been dying with anticipation to find out just what will happen next on Lost.

Thankfully, the big news this morning is, of course, the long-awaited reveal of the new promo for Season Five of Lost, which kicks off on ABC in 2009.

Anxious to see the promo yourself? Fret not, as I've included it right after the jump.



So what can we make out from this tantalizing teaser promo? For one Hurley and Sayid meet up but rather than engage in hugs and catching up have to battle some baddies and head to a safehouse, Kate tells Aaron they're "on vacation" and packs a gun, Daniel Faraday explores the island with a pith helmet and a compass, Ben and Jack discuss second chances, Sun finds herself locked in a room with some government-types... and they are all likely in big trouble from Charles Widmore and other interests intent on determining just what happened to the island.

And can anyone make out the writing on-screen that appears for a split-second around the :40 mark? It's looks like "Dharma Initiative" but I can't be certain. Curious.

Was it just me or did your heart leap into your throat when you hear that haunting Michael Giacchino score? Oh, how I've missed you, Lost.

Stay tuned.

Argh. I can't believe we won't get to see any new episodes until 2009!
Like the island, two of my favorite shows (Lost and Battlestar) have disappeared into the ether and I can't wait to have them back!

I just watched it on another site and came here to see if you had it. Of course you did! :)

So excited about this. Thanks for posting this. It at least gives us something to think about and means that Daniel survived and is on the island with the other castaways. Let's hope that he was able to bring Jin with him or I am going to be majorly upset!

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

"Gilmore" Guy: Who is New Showrunner David Rosenthal?

A few days later and I am still processing the news that Gilmore Girls showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino--and her exceptionally talented husband, writer and producer Daniel Palladino-- announced their departure from the whip-smart drama after six seasons. The news wouldn't be such a blow, save for the fact that Gilmore Girls is as much about Amy and Daniel as it is about Lorelai and Rory. In their capable hands, the show explored a supremely complicated family dynamic through the beautiful friendship of mother and daughter Lorelai and Rory... and did so with smart dialogue usually found in a Nick & Nora film rather than on television. Zany subplots abounded as did quirky, beloved supporting characters. And now, after six seasons (including this most recent--and very shaky--season where Amy and Daniel wrote less episodes than usual), Amy and Daniel are passing on the showrunning torch to... Dave Rosenthal?!? For those of you in the audience unfamiliar with David Rosenthal ,
