Watching the Watchtower: Yes, I've Seen the "Battlestar Galactica" Season Finale

Since I've already gotten dozens of emails today asking if I've seen the third season finale of Battlestar Galactica, I'll answer an emphatic yes here for all to see.

That said, no, I can't tell you what happens and, no, I am contractually obligated not to reveal any spoilers, but all I will say is this: do not, under any circumstances (save maybe an invasion into your home by the Cylon fleet), miss the final five minutes of Sunday night's BSG episode ("Crossroads, Part Two").

The episode's final moments will blow your mind and forever alter the series, even more so than last season's wrap-up in which the show jumped a year into the future and showed our favorite Colonial Fleeters living on New Caprica. Uh-uh. That doesn't compare with the complete and utter mindmelt that's in store for Battlestar Galactica fans on Sunday.

You've been warned. Miss it at your own peril.

Damn! I knew you'd already seen it. Lucky bastard. I can't wait to see it. Can't you give us a little hint? Do we get to see the final five Cylon models???

I didn't know you had seen this! And I've spent all week looking for someone -- ANYone -- to discuss it with!

And, yes, fans will go insane.

I am so excited for the finale, and considering the finale spoiler is on, I'm quite surprised with myself that I've showed such self-restrain and not spoiled the finale for myself.

Warning should be given: The episode is scheduled to run long. So if you think you've set your machinery so as not to miss the last five minutes, you might miss the last three minutes.

Dude? "Set your machinery"? What century are you living in? It's called TIVO. Look into it. Guess what? It even knows BSG is going run over 3 minutes.

Having heard how great this series is from a number of people and finally clueing in, I've spent the last two weeks watching it in its entirety from the first mini-series right up to Crossroads Part 1. Time well wasted! I'm looking forward to the finale, but at the same time preparing myself for the withdrawals I experience every time I digest a whole series or season in a short period of time.

Wes, dude, I live in the century where the networks send out misinformation about start and stop times, so that even with the programmed overrun, you *still* miss the last minute of the show. You don't watch anything on NBC or ABC, I gather.

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: 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

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
