The Daily Beast: "More Big Love Questions Answered" ("Big Love" Postmortem, Part Two)

Looking answers to your burning questions from this week's season finale of HBO's Big Love?

Head over to The Daily Beast, where you can read the second part of a day-after interview with Big Love creators/executive producers Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer, one that delves deeper into the world of Big Love to bring you some confirmations and some answers to some subplots. (You can find Part One here.)

For those who haven't yet seen Sunday night's fourth season finale of Big Love, major spoiler warnings apply as Olsen, Scheffer, and I discuss everything from changing Big Love’s opening credit sequence in the fourth season; what happened to the church Bill started; whether it was Tommy or Jerry who sold out the Henricksons to Marilyn Densham; what JJ wanted from Joey; the creepy miracle pregnancy of Adaleen; the fates of JJ and Malinda; and much, much more.

Season Five of Big Love will air in 2011 on HBO.

Your interview (both parts!) was fantastic and provided answers to many of the questions I had. I know that this season wasn't as strong but I still love the characters and have faith in the show and am already looking forward to next season.

Both parts of your interview were illuminating and important to the understanding of the characters and all of their delicate interconnections. I would agree that it felt like a rushed season---and certainly much too short!--but that didn't detract from the sheer viewing pleasure. It interests me that no one , not even you Jace, has mentioned the final costume choices in that last shot. There stands yet another definition of the American family, showing their true colors (both figuratibvely and really)in brilliant red, white and blue. Such a brave gesture, and so foolish.

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
