Los Angeles Times: "V: The Way of the Gun"

Looking to discuss last night's fall finale of ABC's V ("It's Only the Beginning"), written by Cameron Litvack and Angela Russo-Otstot?

Head over to the Los Angeles Times/Show Tracker site where you can read my write-up of last night's episode of V (entitled "V: The way of the gun") and weigh in on the twists from last night's episode.

Did the four episodes live up to your expectations? Will you be tuning in when the series returns with its back nine episodes?

Be sure to head to the comments section to discuss the latest installment and what you think will happen when V returns from his hiatus in the spring.

V returns to the ABC schedule in March 2010.

This was an excellent episode--the best so far. I just can't believe that we now have to wait until March for more! So lame!

I'll tune in but I'm thinking this show has written itself into a corner. For instance, the Vs have cameras everywhere...especially with their jacket cams and who knows what else. It's going to take a lot of writting around and create plotholes as the resistance navigates around this and eventually I think we're going to be asking wouldn't the Vs have seen that?

Also, as for the 5th column, don't the Vs know who they sent to Earth and who has checked in and who hasn't since they arrived? Therefore, can't they assume anyone who hasn't checked in is suspect and track them down -- I would think they would know who is a V and who isn't given how coordinated they seem to be and how calculated they say Anna is. Like, wouldn't they know that Morris Chestnut has gone rogue and track him down to his house? It's these kind of questions that if they don't get answered I'll tune out pretty fast.

All sci-fi showrunners should take a page from Lost... don't ask a question if you don't have an answer. You can't have a good sci-fi show that lasts without being smart.

I'll pick it up again in March, but personally, I think that's too long of a hiatus for it to be successful.

I will definitely be tuning in the return of V in March. This last Fall episode was excellent. Anna brings the creepiness factor to a whole new level! I wish the hiatus was shorter.

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 ,
