'Top Chef: Las Vegas' - An Uninspiring Finale

Top Chef: Las Vegas wrapped up at last Wednesday night, leaving a rather bad taste in this viewer's mouth over the finale. Not only was the end result far too predictable, but the entire last episode felt like slowly drowning in quicksand.

The De-Lesbianification of 'V'

When ABC announced the remake of science fiction, alien invasion series V, the thought immediately came to mind that this would be yet another great opportunity to feature a serious, lesbian character as a lead on a sci-fi show. Fans of the original Vmini-series and follow-up shows may well remember the heavy lesbian/bisexual subtext surrounding the characters played by Jane Badler and Jenny Sullivan. Will the network show continue to de-gay like Katee Sackhoff's Starbuck and Kristanna Loken's Painkiller Jane?

Top Chef: Las Vegas - Breakfast in Bed with Padma

The contestants on Top Chef:Las Vegas this week were given an opportunity to do something most lesbians would sacrifice a body part for - serving Padma Lakshmi breakfast in bed!

'Project Runway': The Girls Rule the Runway

When Project Runway moved to Lifetime for the new season, it seemed like a great opportunity to infuse the show with a fresh jolt of energy. Honestly, is it me, or have the designers this season degraded into a bunch of back-stabbing, whiny five-year-olds? I blame it on the elimination of all the fun gay boys (Christopher doesn't count). At least when they bitched constantly about the other designers, it was actually entertaining!

Project Runway: Destination Fail
