Columbus Alive

The Watcher had an immediate reaction and a delayed reaction.

Alan Sepinwall talked to creator David Chase.

EW ran not one, not two, not three, but four features so far.

Idolator chimed in.

ESPN's Bill Simmons discussed the show a bunch during his live chat yesterday.

PopMatters did the double take as well.

So did Variety.

Suburbs also wrote two reactions.

Here are reactions from USA Today, Slate, Television Without Pity, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Washington Post, Time and Time (again), as compiled by Pop Candy.

And of course TV Guide had a lot of coverage.

So, what else?

Something I Learned Today posted a bunch of old Gaunt mp3s, so lap it up, kids, and learn about one of the great Columbus bands of yore.

There's a new M.I.A. video for the watchin'. (And she revealed her new album's cover art.)

TV Guide talked to Tina Fey about the next season of 30 Rock.

Courtney Love hired a Kurt Cobain lookalike for her band.

New York Magazine's Vulture blog looked at the phenomenon of online trailers for books. (via LHB)

And finally, for those of you aching for more Lost and The Office, the best I can tell you is Rainn Wilson and Naveen Andrews have new movies in the works. So thanks to Pop Candy for that.
