Los Angeles Times: "V: Choose Your Masters"

Looking to discuss last night's season finale of ABC's V?

Head over to the Los Angeles Times/Show Tracker site, where you can read my take on last night's episode ("Red Sky"), entitled "V: Choose Your Masters."

I'm curious to know what you thought. What did you think of this episode and of the season in general? Should we trust Marcus? Sad to see Val go? Will Ryan come back around? Will Lisa become queen? Will you come back next season to watch Season 2 of V? Head to the comments section to discuss.

Season Two of V will launch in midseason on ABC.

So when exactly is midseason? Next January or something?

Isn't that the reason why ratings are suffering with most ABC shows? They air a handful of episodes, wait 3-4 months and then air more. These breaks in the middle of the show's seasons are the reason the ratings suffer. People forget about the shows or don't bother anymore.

V has been slow, very thin on the alien tech (lasers, etc) and the special effects are somewhat ugly. Almost every scene on the mothership is so poorly green screened it's laughable. There are tons of reasons it is hurting in the ratings.

The biggest reason is ABC itself.
The original V is so much better.

I disagree with the orginal being the better. Though, I do agree with the way ABC scheduled this series. A hiatus in the middle of the season? This new re-working of the original V series, didn't catch fire, until the last 3 or 4 episodes. The Finale was the best episode so far. Also, kudos to ABC for deciding to renew V. Flash-Forward is a complete waste of time. Most Sci-Fi shows take a season or two, before they start to catch on, and start to snowball with viewers. Here's to hoping that is ABC patient.

I don't know why you think that the people who brought Joshua back are Fifth Column. None of them looked familiar, I've only seen Joshua interact with the other guy that got taken in the medical bay. I figured they brought him back to torture him for information still making Marcus a bad guy, but if you are right then that is just as awesome.

After a fairly inconsistent season, I though that the finale was strong and made me interested in seeing where the story would go. Anna screaming at the end definitely made the hair on my arms stand up!

Wonderful episode. Glad to see Joshua revived. Looking forward to the next season!

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 ,
