The Daily Beast: "True Blood's Return: Secrets From Season 3"

Hungry for more True Blood?

Head over to The Daily Beast, where you can read my latest feature, "True Blood's Return: Secrets From Season 3," where I talk about my late-night visit to the set of HBO's vampire drama and interview series creator/executive producer Alan Ball and stars Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, and Alexander Skarsgard, and new cast member Denis O'Hare about what's coming up on the third season of the deliciously addictive drama.

If that weren't enough True Blood goodness, be sure to also check out the in-depth character-based gallery, where I break down what's coming up for your favorite characters--Sookie, Bill, Eric, Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), Tara (Rutina Wesley), Jason (Ryan Kwanten), Sam (Sam Trammell), Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll), Pam (Kristin Bauer van Straten), Sophie-Anne (Evan Rachel Wood), and newbie Russell, plus the werewolves--thanks to some insight from Ball, Paquin, Moyer, Skarsgard, and O'Hare.

(You can also read my advance review of the first three episodes of Season Three of True Blood here.)

What are you most looking forward to this season on True Blood? And is the anticipation driving you insane? Head to the comments section to discuss.

Season Three of True Blood launches this Sunday evening at 9 pm ET/PT on HBO.

Great article. What an awarding experience it must have been to actually visit the set of such a great and successful show. I am excited to see the love triangle that is Sookie, Bill and Eric. I am also excited to see the impact that the werewolves will have on the show. Another great interest of mine is the contest and comparison of True Blood and Twilight. Both release their next chapters this month with TB season 3 vs Eclipse. True Blood is winning on my TB vs Twilight release poll on
I'm sure the turn out for both vamp shows will be blood sucking!

Great piece on The Daily Beast! Can't wait for the premiere! I had forgotten some things from last season so your piece reminded me of where we left off with a lot of the characters and filled me in on the gaps in my memory! So Thanks!

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 .

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.

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
