A Lost Season Finale Podcast!

Following tonight’s Lost season finale, I joined Bill from Verbal Brew for a special edition of their podcast. Head on over and have a listen, and leave your thoughts on the finale.

I’m planning to re-watch the finale over the weekend and will share some thoughts then.

Have you seen “The Incident” yet? What did you think?

Happy Valentine’s Day from The Televixen!

It’s Valentine’s Day, and there’s nothing I like better than a great small-screen romance. So I thought I’d share a list of some of my favourite TV couples of all time, along with clips of each.

What better way to start the list than with the couple that inspired this post – Lost’s Desmond and Penny! This is a couple that would go to the ends of the earth for one another.:

Then there’s Admiral Adama and Laura Roslin from BSG. I was thrilled when these two finally ended up together. In the words of the Admiral, “It’s about time.”:

You know how they say “love hurts”. In the case of Buffy and Angel, love turns some people into soulless monsters. Even though they couldn’t live happily ever after, I still enjoyed watching any brief moment of happiness, or sadness that they shared:

Everyone else can have the saga of Ross and Rachel, but for me, Friends’ Phoebe and Mike were THE couple:

No list would be complete without I Love Lucy’s Ricky and Lucy. I adore this scene, when Lucy lets Ricky know he’s going to be a father:

Last, but most certainly not least, a little Jack and Ianto from Torchwood. Anyone want to play naked hide and seek? Hubba hubba this is one hot couple!

Who are your fave TV couples? Share your picks in the comments below!

And a very Happy Valentine’s Day from The Televixen!

Ready to Get Lost Again?

Is everyone ready to get Lost again? After what feels like an eternity, ABC’s Lost returns in just under 24 hours!

This is the show that opened my eyes to the science fiction/fantasy genre, so it’s very special to me.¬† Without it, I’d never have discovered fantastic TV like BSG, Fringe, Torchwood, Doctor Who, Firefly, Buffy, Angel or Smallville.

When we last saw the Losties, the freighter had blown up, Penny’s boat found the Oceanic Six (and her beloved Desmond), the identity of the person in the coffin was revealed – oh, and Ben moved the Island!

So what’s in store for tomorrow night’s season premiere? Here’s the lowdown from ABC.com:


The remaining survivors start to feel the effects caused by the island being moved, and Jack and Ben begin their quest to reuinite the Ocean 6 — along with Locke’s body — to return to the island.

If that’s not enough to satisfy you in these final hours, here’s a sneak peek:

Are you ready for Lost? And what have you missed most about the series since last May’s season finale?
