Los Angeles Times: "V: Choose Your Masters"

Looking to discuss last night's season finale of ABC's V?

Head over to the Los Angeles Times/Show Tracker site, where you can read my take on last night's episode ("Red Sky"), entitled "V: Choose Your Masters."

I'm curious to know what you thought. What did you think of this episode and of the season in general? Should we trust Marcus? Sad to see Val go? Will Ryan come back around? Will Lisa become queen? Will you come back next season to watch Season 2 of V? Head to the comments section to discuss.

Season Two of V will launch in midseason on ABC.

So when exactly is midseason? Next January or something?

Isn't that the reason why ratings are suffering with most ABC shows? They air a handful of episodes, wait 3-4 months and then air more. These breaks in the middle of the show's seasons are the reason the ratings suffer. People forget about the shows or don't bother anymore.

V has been slow, very thin on the alien tech (lasers, etc) and the special effects are somewhat ugly. Almost every scene on the mothership is so poorly green screened it's laughable. There are tons of reasons it is hurting in the ratings.

The biggest reason is ABC itself.
The original V is so much better.

I disagree with the orginal being the better. Though, I do agree with the way ABC scheduled this series. A hiatus in the middle of the season? This new re-working of the original V series, didn't catch fire, until the last 3 or 4 episodes. The Finale was the best episode so far. Also, kudos to ABC for deciding to renew V. Flash-Forward is a complete waste of time. Most Sci-Fi shows take a season or two, before they start to catch on, and start to snowball with viewers. Here's to hoping that is ABC patient.

I don't know why you think that the people who brought Joshua back are Fifth Column. None of them looked familiar, I've only seen Joshua interact with the other guy that got taken in the medical bay. I figured they brought him back to torture him for information still making Marcus a bad guy, but if you are right then that is just as awesome.

After a fairly inconsistent season, I though that the finale was strong and made me interested in seeing where the story would go. Anna screaming at the end definitely made the hair on my arms stand up!

Wonderful episode. Glad to see Joshua revived. Looking forward to the next season!

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.

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
