Thank God For Second Chances: "Lost" Season Five Promo

Ever since we finally found out who the man in the coffin was (and saw the island disappear into the ether), I've been dying with anticipation to find out just what will happen next on Lost.

Thankfully, the big news this morning is, of course, the long-awaited reveal of the new promo for Season Five of Lost, which kicks off on ABC in 2009.

Anxious to see the promo yourself? Fret not, as I've included it right after the jump.



So what can we make out from this tantalizing teaser promo? For one Hurley and Sayid meet up but rather than engage in hugs and catching up have to battle some baddies and head to a safehouse, Kate tells Aaron they're "on vacation" and packs a gun, Daniel Faraday explores the island with a pith helmet and a compass, Ben and Jack discuss second chances, Sun finds herself locked in a room with some government-types... and they are all likely in big trouble from Charles Widmore and other interests intent on determining just what happened to the island.

And can anyone make out the writing on-screen that appears for a split-second around the :40 mark? It's looks like "Dharma Initiative" but I can't be certain. Curious.

Was it just me or did your heart leap into your throat when you hear that haunting Michael Giacchino score? Oh, how I've missed you, Lost.

Stay tuned.

Argh. I can't believe we won't get to see any new episodes until 2009!
Like the island, two of my favorite shows (Lost and Battlestar) have disappeared into the ether and I can't wait to have them back!

So excited about this. Thanks for posting this. It at least gives us something to think about and means that Daniel survived and is on the island with the other castaways. Let's hope that he was able to bring Jin with him or I am going to be majorly upset!

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.

BBC Culture: Matthew Weiner: Mad Men’s creator on its final episodes

The creative force behind the period drama talks about where his characters are as his show begins its final episodes. “We left off with everyone’s material needs being met in an extreme way,” says Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner of where we last saw the characters on his critically acclaimed period drama when the show went on hiatus 10 months ago. “Then the issue is, what else is there?” That is the central question with the return to US TV of the AMC hit, one demanding to be answered by both the show’s characters, and its creator whose success is the envy of the television industry. Mad Men has been a defining part of Weiner’s life for the last 15 years. He wrote the pilot script on spec while he was a staff writer on CBS’ Ted Danson sitcom Becker in 1999, using it to land a writing gig on HBO’s The Sopranos in 2002. It would take another five years, filled with multiple rejections, before the first episode of Mad Men would make it on the air. Someone with less determination or vision
