Even PC Magazine Yearns to Get "Lost"

I'm shaky with anticipation about tonight's third season premiere of Lost. While I've watched that ABC promo several times now, read the Entertainment Weekly mini-magazine, and managed to watch last week's surprisingly good recap episode ("Lost: A Tale of Survival"), I always make a point to avoid spoilers whenever I can. (That should come as no surprise to loyal Televisionary readers as I'm strictly anti-spoilers.)

So it was with great relief when I discovered this morning a fun Lost article, from a rather unlikely source, that spoils nothing about tonight's season premiere or the upcoming season of my favorite drama. PC Magazine's Jennifer L. DeLeo, assistant editor and general Lost fan, has written a rather tongue-in-cheek article, entitled "Gadgets You Need If You're Lost," about the gadgets DeLeo would recommend to the castaways to either get off the cursed island... or at least make their (enforced) stay a little more pleasurable.

And, lest you think that she stuck to main castaways Jack, Kate, and Sawyer (who, after their capture at the hands of the Others in the season finale, would need these gadgets more than their fellow castaways), rest assured, DeLeo has included her picks for all of the major castaways from those three to Mr. Eko, Sun and Jin, Rousseau, and even the Other-Formerly-Known-as-Henry-Gale. My favorite has got to be one of the items picked out for Claire: the Mommy I'm Here! Child Locator, so she can "keep tabs on Aaron."

I'm wondering if the Others want to trade in those theatrical-beard-and-makeup kits Kate found in one of the stations for something else. Maybe that 80GB iPod video DeLeo picked out for Hurley...

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.


Back in 2006, I founded a television blog called Televisionary (the very one you're reading now).  At the time, it was a little side-project that I stared while working in television development: something to do during the off-hours or (my infrequent) down-time or at my desk during my lunch breaks.  Over the next few years, Televisionary morphed into a full-time job as I watched almost everything on television and cataloged my thoughts, penning reviews, conducting interviews with talent, breaking news, and aggregating the day’s entertainment news headlines and major listings every morning. It got noticed by Entertainment Weekly and The New York Times , The Chicago Tribune and CNN, Deadline and Variety . Televisionary took on a life of its own. It became discussed in Hollywood and I was always surprised to discover that actors or producers or executives who read my TV blog. It was a secret at first, one that I eventually shared with a few friends before spreading outwards, thanks
