Lost audio podcast recap: March 30, 2007

Elizabeth MitchellThe newest Lost audio podcast is up and running on ABC's website. Special guests Adam Horowitz and Eddie Kitsis filled in for Damon Lindelof this week (Carlton Cuse co-hosted). Horowitz and Kitsis are the writers behind last week's Nikki and Paulo episode, along with many other Lost episodes. Cast member Elizabeth Mitchell gave a brief interview about her character, and the writers answered fans' questions. The following details were revealed:

  • Elizabeth Mitchell always suspected that Juliet was "brilliant," and that the character's strength had grown since she arrived on the island. She finds Juliet's development "fascinating."
  • The actress had been told early on that Juliet had not always lived on the island.
  • Carlton Cuse brought writer-producers Adam Horowitz and Eddie Kitsis onto Lost midway into Season One. Cuse had worked with the writers on a short-lived WB show and admired their abilities.
  • Kitsis and Horowtiz said that "Exposé" was their favorite episode out of all of the episodes that they had worked on this season.
  • The writers had discussed the idea of having a crash survivor who was an actress while making Season One.
  • One early idea regarding the TV show storyline was to have an episode of Exposé make up most of a Lost episode. The revelation that Nikki was an actress, and that the events of Exposé were part of a TV show, would have happened at the episode's end.
  • Locke was watching an Exposé episode during "The Man From Tallahassee."
  • The part-within-a-part of Mr. LaShade had always been intended for Billy Dee Williams. Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse initially played a joke on Kitsis and Horowitz by telling them that Williams had passed on the part.
  • The smoke monster will appear in this week's newest episode. Juliet and Kate will also be handcuffed together.
  • Final Ruling: The man falling outside of Hurley's accountant's office window was not John Locke.
  • Rose and Bernard will appear in an episode this season, and they will get a significant storyline.
  • The beach survivors may celebrate Christmas at some point during Season Four.
  • The Cooper-Locke twist will be revisited in an episode to air in late April or early May.
  • According to Carlton Cuse, Locke believes that Ben's reliance on The Barracks' technology is weakening his connection to the island.

The 2004 tsunami was in the Indian Ocean, and although Oceanic 815 was far off course, unless they were flying from Sydney to Los Angeles by way of Europe, the island is somewhere in the Pacific.

DougE - word. I liked last week's episode well enough, but I'm STILL trying to figure out how it was "game-changing" and how Nikki and Paulo are now "iconic." I think everyone associated with hyping Lost just needs to shut the hell up. Give us substance in the show and we'll watch. Stop teasing!

Smug writers on a Lost podcast? Surely you jest! I'm thankful that the podcasts are recapped here as I got tired of listening to them talk about themselves. More than anything else, those podcasts made me believe the writes have no endgame. And they'll end the show the same way Felicity and Alias ended, rushed, out of character and slapped together. Which is still better than half of the shows on the air now.

You missed one point:

-The writers spoke smugly about their roles on the show

Gordy is correct. The screencap is from "Stranger in a Strange Land."

I think this is when she was brought in for the verdict several episodes ago.

What bothers me about Lost is that the producers seem to rely too much on these podcasts to explain things, or hype upcoming events. A good show should stand on it's own & not need the producers to explain away plot holes or hype upcoming things that happen, or explain why they're suddenly picking up a plotline from 2 years ago. D&C don't seem to get that.

I believe it's a publicity shot from the upcoming episode "left behind"

I wonder if the tsunami that struck after Christmas Day 2004 will affect life on the island? I doubt they'll even talk about that before the timeline forces them to, one way or the other....
