The Daily Beast: "Big Love Returns"

Big Love returns on Sunday evening with its fourth season and a hell of a lot of neck-snapping plot twists to come.

Head over to The Daily Beast, where you can read my latest piece, entitled "Big Love Returns," which is actually a gargantuan Q&A-style interview with Big Love creators/executive producers Mark V. Olsen and Eric Scheffer.

And when I say gargantuan, I mean it. Olsen and Scheffer talk about the role of identity this season, the paths that Bill, Barb, Nicki, and Margene each take in Season Four, as well as subplots relating to Alby, Roman, Cara Lynn, the power struggle at the fundamentalist compound, Bill’s campaign for public office, Sissy Spacek's character, and more.

So head over there and check it out. And be sure to head to the comments section to discuss what you're most looking forward to about Season Four and where you think the story is heading.

Season Four of Big Love begins Sunday evening at 9 pm ET/PT on HBO.

The most captivating aspect of "Big Love" is the perfect combination of women for Bill. Imagine if you could get the best of all three in one woman!
Best HBO Fictionalized/reality based series ; "The Wire". No recognition, bo awards, blackballed by the wizards of the award circuit. Get it form Netflix!

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: 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

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
