The Daily Beast: "More Big Love Questions Answered" ("Big Love" Postmortem, Part Two)

Looking answers to your burning questions from this week's season finale of HBO's Big Love?

Head over to The Daily Beast, where you can read the second part of a day-after interview with Big Love creators/executive producers Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer, one that delves deeper into the world of Big Love to bring you some confirmations and some answers to some subplots. (You can find Part One here.)

For those who haven't yet seen Sunday night's fourth season finale of Big Love, major spoiler warnings apply as Olsen, Scheffer, and I discuss everything from changing Big Love’s opening credit sequence in the fourth season; what happened to the church Bill started; whether it was Tommy or Jerry who sold out the Henricksons to Marilyn Densham; what JJ wanted from Joey; the creepy miracle pregnancy of Adaleen; the fates of JJ and Malinda; and much, much more.

Season Five of Big Love will air in 2011 on HBO.

Your interview (both parts!) was fantastic and provided answers to many of the questions I had. I know that this season wasn't as strong but I still love the characters and have faith in the show and am already looking forward to next season.

Both parts of your interview were illuminating and important to the understanding of the characters and all of their delicate interconnections. I would agree that it felt like a rushed season---and certainly much too short!--but that didn't detract from the sheer viewing pleasure. It interests me that no one , not even you Jace, has mentioned the final costume choices in that last shot. There stands yet another definition of the American family, showing their true colors (both figuratibvely and really)in brilliant red, white and blue. Such a brave gesture, and so foolish.

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

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous seas
