Link Tank: TV Blog Coalition Roundup for Feb. 20-22

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 explored the history of the Cylon race on Battlestar Galactica and offered up some theories about Daniel, The Colony, and Kara Thrace and spoke to Battlestar Galactica writer Ryan Mottesheard about the "No Exit"/Jean-Paul Sartre connection.

I also reviewed BBC America's new drama Mistresses and Starz's new comedy Party Down from Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas (and featuring more than a few familiar faces from Neptune).

All this and discussions on the latest episodes of ABC's Lost, FX's Damages, BBC America's Last Restaurant Standing, and NBC's Chuck. Plus, news about PaleyFest09 and a Talk Back for the Dollhouse series premiere on FOX, among other things.

Elsewhere in the sophisticated TV-obsessed section of the blogosphere, members of the TV Blog Coalition were discussing the following items...
  • Gossip Girl is a great guilty pleasure — but would you watch a real-life version? (BuzzSugar)
  • This week, Sandie wished she knew how not to quit Heroes. (Daemon's TV)
  • While some of us are big fans, this week we looked at why some people are just not that into Lost. (Give Me My Remote
  • If you love(d) college, you want to check out this Asher Roth video and see if you can figure out which 90's Alt Rock song he samples. (Scooter McGavin's 9th Green)
  • Vance did some TV blog catch up and puts his two cents on American Idol, Lost and more. (Tapeworthy)
  • The United States of Tara, and discussed his troubling infatuation with John Corbett. (TiFaux)
  • This week, the TV Addict proved that he may have too much time on his hands by not only taking our favorite magazine, Entertainment Weekly to task for offering up their umpteenth TWILIGHT cover. But going one step further and designing a mock-up of what this week's cover could have looked like. (The TV Addict)
  • Kate tried to decide which of the "real" housewives of NYC is the most recession-proof (TV Filter)

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: "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

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
