People Who Have Only Seen One Episode of 'Lost' Will Never Understand It

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 5th 2010 3:06PM
LostEaster is one of those in-between holidays, at least in my house. Definitely more important than Arbor Day but not nearly as important as Thanksgiving. So several family members didn't come to Easter dinner yesterday, which means I got to talk to a couple of people a lot instead of several people just a little. Since I work for The Most Awesome TV Blog in the Universe (TM), the conversation turned to television, specifically to 'Lost.'

I don't remember exactly how the conversation went (I wish I had a tape recorder running), but it was very close to this:

Sister: Oh, you watch 'Lost?'
Me: Yeah, it's great!

Sister: So what's going on on it?
Me: _______?

Sister:
I mean, the last time I saw it they were on an island. That guy who was on 'The Practice' was there.
Me: Michael Emerson. He's a great actor.

Sister:
So what has happened since then?

'Lost' - 'Ab Aeterno' Recap

'Lost' - 'Ab Aeterno'
(S06E09)
That, my friends, is how you do a halfway point episode! Plenty of answers given, while reaffirming some of what we already knew about the two main players in this island drama. There was no need for an alpha-verse or a beta-verse this week as it was all Richard -- or Ricardo. Besides, there's no way he'd still be alive had he not gone to the island, so beta-verse 2004 must be Richard free anyway. We already know he's been on that island a long, long time.

Now we know just how long that's been. I think absolutely every question we had about Richard and his relationship with Jacob was answered this week. In fact, there were no new questions raised at all that I can think of. That must be a first for 'Lost.'

Nestor Carbonell proved with his performance here that he could easily carry the lead in a dramatic series of his own. With the caliber of acting we're seeing from our 'Lost' cast this season, I'm even more eager to see where their career trajectories take them next.

Sawyer Gets a Cryptic Message From Jacob on 'Lost' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 17th 2010 12:45AM
Lost - Sawyer and non-LockeThere's some cryptic graffiti on the walls of 'Lost' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC), courtesy of everyone's favorite mystery date, Jacob. And Sawyer is very interested in one name that non-John Locke shows him – his own. "Why would he write my name on this wall? I've never even met the guy," says Sawyer.

Non-Locke replies, "Oh no, I'm sure you did meet Jacob. Probably when you were young, when you were miserable and vulnerable. He came to you, he manipulated you, pushing you to the island. He thought he was the protector of this place, and you, James, have been nominated to take over that job."

We're guessing Sawyer would rather be cuddling with his sweet Juliet.

Watch the video after the jump.

'Lost' - 'What Kate Does' Recap

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Feb 10th 2010 12:46AM
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.

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!)

'Lost': Is Sayid Jacob or What?

by Ryan McKee, posted Feb 3rd 2010 9:00AM
On the 'Lost' season 6 premiere, Sayid was dead. He'd been shot in the gut, bled out and seemingly drowned in the magical spring that would supposedly save him.

The creepy new Asian leader (Are we calling them "Other Others"?) said that Sayid was beyond saving, even for the Island. However, right before that all too familiar end, Sayid sat up like he had just been taking an afternoon nap.

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.

Six Keys to Enjoying the Final Season of 'Lost'

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 1st 2010 4:09PM
lost_abc_poster_season_6There's something reassuring about knowing that the end is near. Not the end of life, but the end of a long trip or the last pages of a book. Television viewers are no different.

The very idea that the upcoming return of 'Lost' -- it premieres Tuesday at 8 p.m. (ET) -- will be the beginning of the end, the build up to the grande finale is both a joyful and bittersweet experience.

To make sure it's more of the former and less of the latter, here's a few keys that will ensure you will savor the return of 'Lost' so that it will be good to the last drop.

The (Annotated) 'Lost' Reading List

by Ryan McKee, posted Jan 19th 2010 6:00PM
Historically, TV shows don't give their viewers homework. They avoid make any allusion that viewers should be reading more literature than gobbling another 'Jersey Shore' marathon.

However, fans of 'Lost' ('Lostheads,' 'Losters') have become accustomed to jumping on their computers immediately after the Bad Robot production logo finishes. While fan message boards help casual viewers understand some nuances, hardcore Others research references in philosophy, religion, science, and literature. They hope to discover what the hell it all means.

Jacob is coming to Supernatural

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 27th 2009 10:46AM
Lost - JacobIn the season finale of Lost, we saw the mysterious Jacob get stabbed by Ben. Of course, we have no idea if that means Jacob will be killed or just injured (maybe he can't even die like a normal person can), but if he is indeed not on the show anymore, actor Mark Pellegrino has secured another gig.

Michael Ausiello over at EW.com says that Pellegrino will play the devil on The CW's Supernatural.

HeroesIf you haven't seen our game before, we give you a picture from a recent episode of a TV series and you provide the caption! Last time it was a picture from the season finale of Heroes. Our winner is Chris, with this caption:

"Yeah, I see what you mean ... you can't just shave off the unibrow, it just looks weird."

This week's picture is from the season finale of Lost. Ben and "Locke" confront Jacob in the statue, and a lot of bad things happen.

Lost: The Incident, Parts 1 & 2 (season finale)

Matthew Fox
(S05E16/S05E17) "See you in Los Angeles." - Jack

I'm not really sure where to begin, but I think this is a pretty good starting point: holy crap. Just like every season finale before this one, Lost has once again left us all with our jaws on the floor and our brains on overdrive. This changes everything. The big question? How does it change everything? Is it January yet?

I love the fine print at the bottom.

Michael Emerson: The TV Squad Interview

by Kona Gallagher, posted May 13th 2009 11:03AM

As the creeptastic Ben Linus on Lost, Michael Emerson has been the puppet master on the island. He spends his days murdering people, causing others to murder different people, playing mind games and just generally making life more difficult for the survivors of Oceanic flight 815 and everyone else whom he encounters.

Ever since he was going by the name, "Henry Gale," Ben has been a fan favorite on the series. Recently, I was able to grab a few minutes of his time to chat about this week's season finale of Lost and the evolution of Benjamin Linus. He even gives me some parenting advice!

The interview follows after the jump, and as we do discuss this week's finale, I should probably give you a spoiler warning right now. However, since it's Lost, he's not able to give too much away. FACT: The smoke monster is real, and is deployed against any actor who dares to speak too freely about the show-- so I got what I could.

Little People, Big World renewed

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 24th 2006 7:17PM
Little People, Big WorldI've been trying to weed out all the reality shows I don't need to watch anymore (goodbye American Inventor, American Idol and others), but I have to admit  really like Little People, Big World. There's something non-exploitive and natural about it. It's been a ratings bonanza for TLC, so much so that the network has given the green light for a second season of the show later this year, so we'll be able to see the further adventures of the Roloff family.

TLC will air a marathon of the show on Mother's Day.
