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 .

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

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
