Los Angeles Times: "V: The Way of the Gun"

Looking to discuss last night's fall finale of ABC's V ("It's Only the Beginning"), written by Cameron Litvack and Angela Russo-Otstot?

Head over to the Los Angeles Times/Show Tracker site where you can read my write-up of last night's episode of V (entitled "V: The way of the gun") and weigh in on the twists from last night's episode.

Did the four episodes live up to your expectations? Will you be tuning in when the series returns with its back nine episodes?

Be sure to head to the comments section to discuss the latest installment and what you think will happen when V returns from his hiatus in the spring.

V returns to the ABC schedule in March 2010.

This was an excellent episode--the best so far. I just can't believe that we now have to wait until March for more! So lame!

I'll tune in but I'm thinking this show has written itself into a corner. For instance, the Vs have cameras everywhere...especially with their jacket cams and who knows what else. It's going to take a lot of writting around and create plotholes as the resistance navigates around this and eventually I think we're going to be asking wouldn't the Vs have seen that?

Also, as for the 5th column, don't the Vs know who they sent to Earth and who has checked in and who hasn't since they arrived? Therefore, can't they assume anyone who hasn't checked in is suspect and track them down -- I would think they would know who is a V and who isn't given how coordinated they seem to be and how calculated they say Anna is. Like, wouldn't they know that Morris Chestnut has gone rogue and track him down to his house? It's these kind of questions that if they don't get answered I'll tune out pretty fast.

All sci-fi showrunners should take a page from Lost... don't ask a question if you don't have an answer. You can't have a good sci-fi show that lasts without being smart.

I'll pick it up again in March, but personally, I think that's too long of a hiatus for it to be successful.

I will definitely be tuning in the return of V in March. This last Fall episode was excellent. Anna brings the creepiness factor to a whole new level! I wish the hiatus was shorter.

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.

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
