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 .

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
