Tune-In Reminder: "True Blood" Season Finale (and Alan Ball!)

Just a quick reminder to be sure to tune in Sunday night for the second season finale of HBO's True Blood.

Be sure to come back here Monday morning to discuss the episode in detail. I'll also be chatting one-on-one with True Blood writer/executive producer Alan Ball that morning, so if you have any burning questions about the second season or the season finale specifically, be sure to email me or leave a comment here.

Here's how HBO described the season finale ("Beyond Here Lies Nothin'"): Maryann prepares for her ultimate sacrifice, forcing Sookie to be the Maid of Honor at her bloody nuptials; Sophie-Anne warns Eric to control Bill's inquisitiveness; Jason leads Andy into battle; Hoyt struggles with Maxine's endless stream of insults; Sam places his trust, and his life, in a most unlikely ally in order to save Bon Temps and Sookie. (And it also happens to feature a cameo from True Blood author Charlaine Harris, to boot!)

Below you can catch the promo for Sunday night's season finale as well as the gorgeous Depeche Mode music video for "Corrupted," featuring the cast of True Blood.

My question for Alan Ball is this:

Since the series is based (loosely) on the books and there are now around 10 books, how does Ball plan to incorporate the events of the books into the series? If the series ends before the books end, does Ball leave the series differently than Charlane Harris would leave it?

1. Is Alan happy with making the Maryann story such a major part of the season since many people thought it went on way too long to remain interesting.

2. Is there a reason he is being black and white about Bill and Eric as opposed to giving both of them many colors. Bill get's Eric's heroic deeds and tattles on Eric, and leaving out Eric's sense of humor and making him much more nefariously manipulative where Sookie is concerned.

3.I read you think Alex looks better with short hair but now he just looks like a GQ model, as opposed to a viking w/sexy long blond locks. It's part of Eric's mystique. Would you ever consider finding better wigs than the ones he had in Season 1? I know they're out there. Broadway wig stylists make great wigs all the time.

Will Alcide be a major character in season three?

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 .

BuzzFeed: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it
