Link Tank: TV Blog Coalition Roundup for Dec. 5-7

Televisionary is proud to be a member of the TV Blog Coalition. At the end of each week, we'll feature a roundup of content from our sister sites for your delectation.

This week, I took a look back at those five suggestions to improve Fringe that I made in October to see if the writers had addressed any of them since then.

I also posted advance reviews up of TNT's Leverage and BBC America's bittersweet Gavin & Stacey season finale, as well as my thoughts on this week's installments of Chuck, Pushing Daisies, 30 Rock,and Top Chef: New York.

All this plus news about the first footage from Season Five of ABC's Lost, CW developing a spin-off of Gossip Girl, Bryan Fuller heading back to Heroes and Mad Men's John Hamm heading to 30 Rock, NBC's midseason lineup (including less Knight Rider!), delays with that planned Veronica Mars feature film, and Sci Fi ordering BSG spin-off Caprica to series.

Elsewhere in the sophisticated TV-obsessed section of the blogosphere, members of the TV Blog Coalition were discussing the following items...
  • Buzz suggested a few possible scenarios for the Gossip Girl spinoff. (BuzzSugar)
  • Sandie shared an interview with Samuel Baum, creator and executive producer of Fox's upcoming new series, Lie to Me (Daemon's TV)
  • GMMR shared some news and pics from her recent visit to the set of Privileged. (Give Me My Remote)
  • The holiday season has arrived and with it a brand new TV Advent Calendar including our favorite advent "treat" this week... How to make a holiday work wheel à la The OC and Seth Cohen's Chrismakkuh Work Wheel. (RTVW Online)
  • Scooter unveils his upcoming holiday schedule of Best of the Year list and how you can participate in crafting one and win iTunes/Amazon gift cards in the process. (Scooter McGavin's 9th Green)
  • Vance fell behind in TV blogging November sweeps so did a little blogging cleaning up on over a dozen shows. (Tapeworthy)
  • Our national nightmare came and went. Dan evaluated Rosie's debacle of a variety show. (TiFaux)
  • Jennifer begged Shonda Rhimes to stop the Izzie madness on Grey's Anatomy. (Tube Talk)
  • TV Spy got a bit bogged down making the huge Christmas double issue of TV & Satellite Week. But somehow, amid all the madness and mince pies, Ben and Gareth found time to ponder Heroes: The Eclipse Pt2, and reckoned they spotted some definite signs of improvement. Phew! (TV Spy)
  • This week, the TV Addict got an exclusive update on the status of the VERONICA MARS Movie from Papa Mars himself, Enrico Colantoni. (The TV Addict)
  • Kate was a little sad to see Stylista's surgically enhanced little fashion urchin get the boot. (TV Filter)

Hey Jace.

I'm a big fan of Dexter. Your coverage on that is limited. Not your cup of tea?

Keep up the great work!

Thanks

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

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.

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 .
