ABC has posted the newest Lost audio podcast, which was once again hosted by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. Lindelof and Cuse claimed to be in "answer mode," and provided a lot of details and teasers about upcoming episodes. Cast members Jorge Garcia and Josh Holloway discussed the great Lost ping pong match as well. Here's what we learned:
- Unlike his character, Josh Holloway is an excellent ping pong player, and considers himself to be tough to beat. The actor is always surprised that Sawyer does not learn his lesson after losing at poker and being the "slowest draw" among the Lost characters.
The newest Lost audio podcast is available on ABC's website, and Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are finally back as hosts. The executive producers discussed past episodes "Par Avion" and "Enter 77," and teased upcoming episodes "The Man From Tallahassee" and "Exposé." Cast member Emilie de Ravin also discussed her work on the "Par Avion" episode. Here are the highlights:
Emilie de Ravin felt that "Par Avion" was the most emotionally difficult of all her past Lost performances. She is also sure that Jack and Claire will eventually discover that they are half-siblings.
ABC has posted the newest Lost audio podcast, which includes cast and crew interviews and a clip from this week's episode. Cast member Michael Emerson discusses his take on Ben Linus, and co-executive producer Jean Higgins talks about the "nuts and bolts" of filming in Hawaii. Here are the highlights:
- When out in public, Emerson gets fan reactions that range from fearful to formal.
- The actor loves performing Shakespeare; Macbeth is his all-time favorite play.
- He enjoys the "charged subtext" that his character, Ben, brings to each scene.
ABC's newest Lost audio podcast is full of entertaining and useful behind-the-scenes information. Cast members Josh Holloway, Daniel Dae Kim, and Jorge Garcia discuss their experiences filming the "Tricia Tanaka is Dead" episode. A short interview with Paul Terry, editor of Lost: The Official Magazine, is also featured. Finally, the podcast includes a brief clip of the upcoming episode titled "Enter 77."
- In the cast interview, Jorge Garcia mentions that the dog trainers had trouble getting Madison (Vincent the Dog) to hold the corpse's arm in her mouth the same way on each take. The arm was even sent home with Madison so she could get comfortable carrying it around.
If you have little kids in your home, either because they're your children or you just left a window open and some random kids crawled into your home and now refuse to leave, you might like to know that there are six free videos from the Learn Along with Sesame series available on iTunes. The segments include:
Want to know why some of the bad guys in 24 are painted in shades of gray? (Think former President Charles Logan. The Day 6 version. The one who quotes the Bible in the bathroom.)
Want to know how long it takes to write one of these action-packed episodes?
Curious as to 24 staffers' thoughts on the controversies sparked by the show's graphic scenes?
TV Week has been posting a series of interviews with 24 producers and writers as part of their 24 "Backlot Talk" series. You can either download the audio of the interview or read the transcript. The site also has a place for readers to submit questions that could be posed to 24 creators in future interviews.
Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse were unavailable for the podcast this week due to scheduling, but ABC has posted an old interview with Matthew Fox in its place. Since the Jack-centric "Stranger in a Strange Land" episode aired last week, the clip concerned the actor's tattoos. The podcast was considerably shorter than normal, but here are the highlights:
Matthew Fox uses tattoos to represent memories or meaningful events in his life, so the writers took a similar approach to dealing with Jack's tattoos.
At the time of the interview, Fox anticipated that the tattoo back story would be set after Jack had divorced Sarah.
The actor mentioned that, for him, getting a new tattoo is an extensive process.
Next week's regular podcast will feature mini-interviews with Jorge Garcia and Daniel Dae Kim.
ABC just released the newest Lost audio podcast, which was once again hosted by executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. The podcast features a short interview with Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond), details about "Flashes Before Your Eyes," and information about "Stranger in a Strange Land," which airs Wednesday night. Here's what we learned:
- Henry Ian Cusick considers Desmond to be a quieter, less conventional hero. He also prefers to be called Ian.
- Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse admit that Desmond's episode was not a "flashback" in the traditional sense. Desmond was allowed to make choices within his own past, but was course-corrected by Fionnula Flanagan's character (the woman in the jewelry store).
The newest Lost audio podcast was released yesterday, which included some revealing details about the show. If you don't want to listen to the 22 minutes of banter between producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, here's a review of the major points:
- In a short interview, Josh Holloway mentioned that while the writing team comes up with Sawyer's snappy nicknames, the actor himself gives people nicknames in everyday life. According to Holloway, the writers often like to incorporate the cast members' personalities into their characters. He also wants more nicknames to stick around the way that Freckles has.
- There is actually a class at Tufts University that lists the Lost podcasts as required "reading." Has the world come to an end?
For those of you who love behind-the-scenes details, ABC has just posted a new Lost audio podcast on its website. As usual, the podcast is hosted by producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, and includes a recap of "Not in Portland." Fans can also get a sense of what to expect from this week's Desmond-centric episode, "Flashes Before Your Eyes." Among the more interesting details: Ben might not be Alex's biological father; there will be at least one more episode on Alcatraz (where Jack is being held); and, the dreaded Nikki and Paulo will be getting more screen time. In addition, Josh Holloway sheds light on Sawyer's nicknaming habit in a short interview.
ABC has posted a new Lost video podcast that contains cast interviews, behind the scenes footage, and previews for upcoming episodes. The podcast is a bit spoilerish, so people wishing to watch the show with fresh eyes should steer clear. Clips from "Not in Portland" are included, as are interviews with Michael Emerson, Henry Ian Cusick, Josh Holloway, Daniel Dae Kim, Elizabeth Mitchell, and Dominic Monoghan. They had me at Michael Emerson. Those wishing to download the podcast can do so at iTunes.
That's what I thought when I read that the CW has decided to make its shows available for sale on iTunes. According to today's Cynopsis, the network will make episodes of Supernatural and Veronica Mars available. The network is also working on an embedded video player, which will play full episodes, including commercials, on the network's web site.
VM and Supernatural seem like the most natural choices to be made available online, given their fanbases. What I wonder is: given the relatively tiny audiences for CW shows, why didn't they jump on the online bandwagon sooner? As others have seen, it's a great way to get a little-seen show out to more people.
Good news, fans of Space Ghost: Coast to Coast: I opened up iTunes and discovered that a few episodes of Space Ghost: Coast to Coast have been added to Adult Swim's iTunes store. The episodes are the usual $1.99 and include such classics as "Fire Ant" (which ends with Space Ghost distracted by an ant and ignoring guest Conan O'Brien completely) and "Kentucky Nightmare" where we learn things about bears and sharks we were never taught in school. The same shark featured in that episode would later turn up on 12 Oz Mouse.

The other day I mentioned Moral Orel had been added to iTunes, and I found out today that Frisky Dingo, the new series from the brains behind Sealab 2021, has also been added. Between airings of Adult Swim and free episodes of many of these shows on Adult Swim Fix (with the exception of Moral Orel), I wonder how many people actually buy these episodes through the iTunes store. Then again, I also like the idea of having multiple choices when it comes to seeing these shows, so I guess I'll just shut my big stupid mouth. Also, and I think I've said this before, some of these Adult Swim shows work just fine on a smaller screen (if a video iPod is your player of choice), so I say "keep adding more shows to iTunes, people at Adult Swim who do that sort of thing."
