This 'Lost' Character Chart Will Just Confuse You Even More

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 26th 2010 11:00AM
Lost chartAs well all know, 'Lost' is a difficult show to understand, even if you're a regular viewer. A couple dozen characters, various timelines, various locations all add up to a confusing (though great) show.

Wired has a handy character chart (yes, there might be spoilers!), created by bioinformics scientist Martin Krzywinski using Circos software (even that sentence is confusing) that shows how all of the characters are related. The chart showing the entire cast is just a mess of colored lines that might be hard to follow, but you can use the list on the left to narrow down the list of characters and plot points you want to examine.

Guy Finds Call Sheet For 'Lost' Finale and Now It's Online

call sheetNeedless to say, this post contains massive spoilers.

So a guy was sitting in a Honolulu restaurant recently and saw a piece of paper that had the word 'Lost' on it. Turns out it's the studio call sheet for the series finale! What does he do? He sends it to Gawker, of course (see also iPhone, Apple's new). And it looks like it's the real thing because ABC contacted Gawker and they want the call sheet back.

What secrets does it hold? If you want to know more, continue after the jump. If you don't want to know more, click here for some great pasta recipes at Kitchen Daily!

Six Questions I Want 'Lost' to Answer Before It Ends

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 14th 2010 4:54PM
Lost
As last night's episode of 'Lost' showed, this season really is giving us a lot of answers. And even if the show isn't giving us all the answers we want/need, at least we can now feel a forward momentum driving us towards the end. There are only five episodes of the show left, can you believe it?

The show can't possibly answer all of the questions, small and big, that have come up since the show started in 2004. I think they'll answer enough of them for most fans, but you and I both know that 37 seconds after the season finale ends, some people are going to go online and complain. That was a lame ending! They didn't even answer the question I wanted them to answer! I wasted six years for this?!

I won't be one of those people. They've answered the question of the numbers enough for me, and several other mysteries don't bother me. Unless the show ends in a WTF 'Sopranos' fade-out, I'll just go with what the writers give us. Of course, that doesn't mean I don't want some questions answered:

'Lost' - 'Everybody Loves Hugo' Recap

'Lost' - 'Everybody Loves Hugo'
(S06E12)
You can certainly tell that we've turned the corner on this final season of 'Lost.' Suddenly, the alpha-verse and beta-verse seem to be on a collision course with one another, and I'm very intentionally using that expression. With Desmond on the loose in both universes now, things have gotten a lot more interesting, even if I'm still not 100% clear what either of his motivations are.

As expected, the beta-verse Hurley is every bit the financial success with Mr. Cluck's that the alpha-verse Hurley could never quite manage. What was alpha-Hurley's deep-rooted desire, if I'm going to continue that theory, that the beta-verse fulfilled? He said many times that he didn't want the millions he won in the lottery, but I think it was his never-ending plague of bad luck that he really wanted to get rid of. Trying to shed his winnings was just a means to his desired end.

'Lost' - 'Lighthouse' Recap

Jorge Garcia & Matthew Fox, 'Lost' - 'Lighthouse'
(S06E05)
Jack took center stage this week, in more ways than one. The character of Jack has always been frustrating to me, and I've realized it's because he's so well written and well-rounded. With many of the characters, you can safely anticipate their behavior, but Jack has thrown in a few surprises along the way.

Yes, his default setting seems to be stubborn, bull-headed anger, but we see enough of the introspective and thoughtful Jack that it's frustrating to see him succumb so completely to that mule side of his personality. Through the use of the Jack story we saw in tonight's flash-sideways, we actually got to witness both versions of Jack in one episode.

Jack Freaks Out on 'Lost' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 24th 2010 1:50AM
Lost, Jack Freaks Out Over JacobYou can't blame Jack for freaking out when he learns that Jacob's been watching him for years. Yes, Jacob has stepped right out of a George Orwell novel and into the lives of the castaways. And Jack wants answers. Now!

"It's my house," Jack tells Hurley, after seeing his childhood home on the magic screen. "It's the house I grew up in ... he's been watching us. The whole time, all of us, he's been watching us. Why was he watching us? Why was my name written down on this thing? What does he want from me?!!"

Argh! We feel his pain! Someone's watching us, too, probably right this very minute! If we had a magic screen like Jack has on 'Lost' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC), we'd smash it, too!

Watch the video after the jump.

'Lost' - 'The Substitute' Recap

'Lost' - 'The Substitute'
(S06E04)
The numbers! The numbers!

Lindelof and Cuse have been teasing us for a while now that they might not reveal the significance of the numbers. Without doing so directly, I think they gave us something huge connected to them tonight. Finally, after a lackluster episode last week we're getting some information we can sink our teeth into. Locke-centric episodes always seem to be good for that.

The character connections in the flash-sideways reality were really coming at us hard and heavy tonight, with appearances by several favorites as we discovered how John's life could have been. It would appear that some things have definitely gone better for our paralyzed friend, while in some other respects he's the same sad sack John Locke we came to know and love over the past five seasons.

Here's Something to Give Your 'Lost'-Loving Significant "Other" on Valentine's Day

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 11th 2010 6:10PM
Lost cardWhat do you get the 'Lost' fan for Valentine's Day? DHARMA chocolates? A copy of 'The Third Policeman?' Advil to take at 10PM every Tuesday night when the latest episode is over?

How about a 'Lost'-themed card? These are pretty darn clever. The Ben one on the right is my favorite. I love the expression on his face, and you can imagine him saying those words.

The card after the jump is my other favorite, though since it's addressed to Kate it seems like only a handful of 'Lost' fans would be able to use it.

Cuse and Lindelof Give Some Clues About the 'Lost' Timeline(s)

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 10th 2010 4:30PM
LostIf you're not listening to the weekly 'Lost' podcast, you're missing out on a lot of great stuff. I didn't start listening to it until recently, and I've discovered that not only are the podcasts entertaining, they're giving a lot of clues as to what's happening on the island (and these are official clues, not rumors or theories that you might find on other sites - though producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are more than a little coy in the podcasts).

What jumped out to me in the podcast posted after the season premiere last week has to do with the timeline(s).

'Lost' - 'What Kate Does' Recap

Evangeline Lilly as Kate Austen on ABC's 'Lost.'
(S06E03) "It's the Others, dude. They caught us ... again." - Hurley

As 'What Kate Does' unfolded, I couldn't help but shake the feeling that everything we're witnessing in the "post-Jughead worked" 2004 time-line is going to end up being very important. Of course, that could have been due to the fact that in this past week's Official 'Lost' Audio Podcast, Cuse and Lindelof essentially laid it bare for us -- there is no alternate reality happening here. What's going on in LA in 2004 and what's going on in 2007 on the island are both very real.

The question to ask is what effect actions in one time-line will have on the events in the other. As far as 'Lost' mindf#%ks go, this one is a doozie, because it's forced us to reevaluate everything we remember about these characters, right back to the pilot episode.

Jorge Garcia's New 'Lost' Podcast Just Melted My Brain

by Mike Moody, posted Feb 8th 2010 8:02PM
Geronimo Jack's BeardJorge Garcia, the dude who plays Hurley on 'Lost', has launched a new weekly podcast about the show's final season, lovingly titled "Geronimo Jack's Beard."

You can download the first episode now, which features Jorge and co-host Beth Shady discussing the script for last week's premiere 'LA X Parts 1 & 2'. It's a fun listen, but don't expect to hear any plot spoilers from Jorge, who clearly states that he's "not the answer guy."

While listening to "GJB," I honestly wasn't expecting to get any definitive answers to the four million questions I have about the premiere. (I doubt Jorge could get away with sneaking spoilers into the recording.) Still, I was hoping to get a few clues about the strange new "flash sideways" storyline.

But the podcast left me even more confused about the premiere than I was before.

Newsweek Staff Members Who've Never Seen 'Lost' Watch and Comment

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 5th 2010 1:33PM
The other night while watching the season premiere of 'Lost,' I was thinking about people who have never seen the show. What if they watched this episode? Would they have any idea of what's going on? Would they like it? Would their heads explode?

This video below answers the question a bit. Several Newsweek staff members got together to watch scenes from important moments on the show and tried to figure out what it all means. Some of the comments range from goofy ("Why would that guy make the engine blow up?") to the typical line you hear from a non-fan ("It's heaven!").

The Big Question About Last Night's Season Premiere of 'Lost'

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 3rd 2010 7:05PM
Matthew FoxThere are no chicken sandwiches in the parking lot. There are only dreamers. Sure, one could make the case that you can't make linoleum a religious symbol, and even if you could, why would oranges go to Buffalo? I sit here with my shoes and my can opener and I wonder about President Taft. There are rules for gasoline, and maybe - just maybe - the omelets will fly.

Is that paragraph above confusing? Well, it's not as confusing as last night's 'Lost' was. (Note: what follows might be spoiler-ish if you haven't seen the episode, so proceed with caution!)

Review: 'Lost' - 'LA X, Parts 1 and 2' (Season Premiere)

Lost premiere
(S06E01/S06E02) "We're back." - Kate

Did you hear that? That was the collective sound of TV fans across the country all brain-farting in unison. 'Lost' is back for its final season and I've gotta be honest -- I'm not really sure what to think about 'LA X.' In four or five months time, once the series has concluded, I'm positive I'll think differently about it. However, right now, 'LA X' was easily one of the most confusing hours of 'Lost' yet, and despite ABC's promos promising that "questions would be answered," all it gave us was a jumbo-jet (literally) chock full of new ones. Whatever ... I still loved every second of it.

Jorge Garcia Previews the Big 'Lost' Final Season Premiere & More - VIDEO

by Maggie Furlong, posted Feb 2nd 2010 6:30PM
Jorge Garcia is a man of few words, but he definitely has some interesting thoughts about season 6 of 'Lost.'

So was he shocked, confused or excited when reading the 2-hour premiere script? "Page 1 definitely felt about right," he teases. "As I kept reading it, there was definitely some stuff that I was like going, 'What?! Wait ... hold on.' The stuff that they introduce in that first episode ... it's great. You come off of blowing up a bomb, and it's like, all bets are off."

Not excited yet? Watch our full video interview before tonight's premiere (Tues., Feb. 2, 9PM ET on ABC) to hear more about the big changes for this final season, his fond island memories and Hurley finally finding happiness.
