Lost season four might be one hour longer

Jeremy DaviesThere could be an upside to the Lost hiatus after all. On Wednesday afternoon, TV Guide's Michael Ausiello reported that Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are in "advanced talks" with ABC about adding another hour-long chapter to Lost Season Four. The arrangement is by no means set in stone, but it is encouraging news.

No word yet on how this extra hour might be added to the season's remaining five episodes. We could get another episode, or the finale could be an additional hour. Would a three-hour season finale be too much, even for Lost viewers? How will this affect the scheduling of the two-hour season finale? Currently, the season's last episode is split into two installments that will air one week apart. Will there be room for this bonus episode now that Lost is sharing Thursday nights with Grey's Anatomy and Ugly Betty?

I'm interpreting this rumor as a good sign. Lindelof and Cuse wouldn't ask for another hour unless there was a significant part of the season's story left to tell. They already had to compress a sixteen-episode season into thirteen episodes; perhaps that wasn't enough to do the season justice. So much has been happening this season: the return of the Michael, the arrival of the Freighties, and all of the flash-forward storytelling. I doubt that this extra episode would contain any filler. I just hope that the new chapter flows well with the other storylines and doesn't feel tacked on.

What's your take on this rumor? Would you welcome a fourteenth episode?

How do you feel about a possible fourteenth hour?

I could watch 3 hours of LOST every Thursday.

Like Jeff said in the first comment. There's always room for LOST. Just like Jell-O.

How the frig is a season finale split into two episodes and shown a week apart?

The last episode that is seperated by a whole week is the season finale.

I think earlier on one of the podcasts, Cuse & Lindelof said that this year's finale was originally only gonna be 1 hour cause Grey's Anatomy was getting a 2-hour finale.

More LOST is never a bad thing. That means I get to mull over one more episode before the long, cold, hard break between S4 and S5. :'(
