Best Present Ever: "Chuck" Season Three Press Kit Arrives

I don't normally write about press kits but then again very few networks send out that many kick-ass press kits.

Until now.

Perhaps taking a page from the new butt-kicking abilities of one Mr. Chuck Bartowski, NBC has sent out what might just be the very coolest press kit ever for Season Three of Chuck, which returns to the lineup (finally!) next month.

In addition to a screener containing the first five episodes of Chuck's third season, the massive press kit--emblazoned with a Top Secret label and the words "from the desk of General Beckman" on the top--also came with a voice changer, sunglasses, and a spy kit, all very appropriate accoutrements for the upcoming third season. (Also included: a hysterical note from series creators/executive producers Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak.)

As for the episodes themselves, I can't wait to see just what's in store for our favorite band of spies when the series returns in January with its much-anticipated third season. Look for a review as soon as I'm able to screen.

This message will self-destruct in 30 seconds.

Season Three of Chuck launches Sunday, January 10th at 9 pm ET/PT before it moves into its regular timeslot of Mondays at 8 pm on January 11th.

Last year NBC released the season premier in iTunes a bit early--there's hoping they do the same this year. I can't wait.

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
