'Lost' - 'The Package' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 31st 2010 2:03AM
Yunjin Kim, 'Lost' - 'The Package'(S06E10) Sun and Jin. Star-crossed lovers no matter what reality you're in. But their relationship certainly isn't at the same point on Oceanic 815 in the beta-verse as it was in the alpha-verse; despite things looking rather similar when Jin was yelling at Sun to button up her blouse. How dare she show her sternum! It is rather titillating, isn't it?

Korean was flying everywhere in both realities this week, as alpha-Sun and alpha-Jin continued their molasses-paced efforts to reunite on the island. Meanwhile, we got a hint as to what it's like to be inside alpha-Sayid right now, and it doesn't seem like a place I want to go anytime soon.

As expected, the beta-verse adventures of Sun and Jin coincided nicely with Sayid's beta-adventure, meaning that we got to see the other side of the story that led to Jin being tied to a chair in that restaurant storage room.

Claire Attacks Kate on 'Lost' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 17th 2010 7:18AM
Lost, Claire attacks KateOne of the best scenes in last night's 'Lost' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC) occurred when Claire (or whoever she is) attacked Kate, as a dazed Sayid looked on. He's just not right, but some people on the show aren't getting that. Anyway, no one is who they seem to be.

Loved seeing Locke go off on Claire, grabbing her by the scruff of her neck (sort of), tossing her like a sack of potatoes, then slapping her. "I'll deal with you in a moment!" he said.

It must be loads of fun for these characters to play alternative characters on the show. They really get to stretch their acting chops.

'Lost' - 'Sundown' Recap

'Lost' - 'Sundown'
(S06E06)
In a season where all the answers are supposedly being given, I actually appreciate that I still have no idea what's coming next on 'Lost.' With twelve episodes left to go, it's certainly not necessary for me to be spoon fed all the answers right now. If they did that, why would we keep watching it for the next two-and-a-half months?

This week, in the alpha-verse we were treated to the promised confrontation at the temple. It certainly didn't go down the way I expected, but it still blew my mind. Claire and Kate wound up facing off, with all the expected tension, and all hell broke loose in the temple. As I said, from the closing seconds of 'Sundown,' I can't even speculate what's going to happen next, and I love that.

Sayid was the focus of the episode, both on the island and in the rewritten beta-verse reality. In both of them he seems to be fighting a darkness within himself. It was certainly the darkest flash-sideways we've seen yet.

'Lost' Creators Want to Get the Finale Right - PaleyFest Report

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Feb 28th 2010 10:11AM
The 'Lost' cast and creators kept their secrets at this year's PaleyFest.Day two of PaleyFest2010, this year's edition of the annual look behind the scenes of television most popular shows, welcomed the creators and cast of 'Lost' to discuss the challenges of forging the show's final season.

Executive producers Damon Lindelof, Carlton Cuse, Eddy Kitsis, Adam Horowitz and Liz Sarnoff fielded questions and tried to answer questions about how the show's last episodes will come together -- without leaking any "spoilers." In fact, they took credit for being the show that gave birth to that term.

To digress for a moment, you might ask why a single TV show needs so many "executive producers." The truth is they're writers. Since producers get a fatter check than mere lowly scribes, Hollywood agents make sure their literary clients get that executive producer title attached in the deal memos.

Joining those writers executive producers were series stars Nestor Carbonell, Michael Emerson and Terry O'Quinn. The group told the 1,900 fans and industry insiders at the Saban Theatre (the house the Power Rangers built) they just wrapped production on the penultimate episode, and writing is underway on the show's final outing.

'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.

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.

Yes, we're majorly excited about the repercussions of all this and can't wait to find out what happens next. And didn't Terry O'Quinn turn in another fine performance as Locke? Read our recap of tonight's episode of 'Lost.'

Michael Emerson and Terry O'Quinn Talk Being Indestructible & the Ben-Locke Bromance on 'Lost' - VIDEO

by Maggie Furlong, posted Feb 2nd 2010 6:00PM
Michael Emerson and Terry O'Quinn together in one interview? It's enough to make a 'Lost' fan weak in the knees.

The duo settled in to talk all about the drama to come in season 6, and some lingering questions about John Locke not being John Locke, and what he might really be. "Did you know you were not John Locke before I knew you were not John Locke?," Emerson asks with a coy smile. These two have honed their back-and-forths to near banter perfection.

They also laugh at the idea that Blocke fans have labeled them TV's greatest bromance. "As a bromance?," O'Quinn scoffs. "We've had good stuff to do together -- they've written great stuff for us to play together."

See all the amazingness right here, before the final season of 'Lost' premieres tonight (Tues., Feb. 2, 9PM ET on ABC).

Pre-Lost Locke, Terry O'Quinn as The Stepfather

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 31st 2010 9:00AM
the_stepfather_terry_oquinn_shout_factoryWhen Lost returns this Tuesday for the beginning of the end of the series, one of the biggest questions that has to be answered concerns John Locke. Is he dead or not? Has he been dead all along and someone/something else was taking his place? What is the real story of John and why was he chosen for the role he has on the island and off?

Well, part of the fascination with Locke is the way Terry O'Quinn has played the character. O'Quinn is a dynamic and compelling actor. And if you want to get a great look at just how good Terry is, take a look at the recently released reissue of a small, independent film he made in 1987 called The Stepfather. The DVD presents a much younger Terry O'Quinn -- he was 35 at the time -- as Jerry Blake. And Bill Hodges. And Henry Morrison.

Lost's final season won't answer all of viewers' questions - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 12th 2010 10:01PM
Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse at the Lost panel at the Winter 2010 TCAsRight before the Conan "piss off, NBC" letter exploded all over the place, ABC had started their day at the TCAs with the critics' full attention. Why? Because the first panel of the day was the last time that the producers and crew of Lost would be in front of the critics answering questions about their confoundingly complicated show.

It almost felt like a collective valedictory speech, as the cast was given a chance to talk about their biggest memories from six years of shooting the show in Hawaii, and EPs Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof waxed poetic over what they think the legacy of the show is going to be.

But the big takeaways? The final season is not going to answer every question surrounding the show. The story arc this year will be told in a way that might not actually confuse anyone who's decided to finally jump on board and watch. And Lindelof's reaction to the possibility that the premiere might be pre-empted by the State of the Union address was priceless.

Gone Too Soon: Earth 2

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 21st 2009 3:00PM
Earth 2In 1994, I was excited about My So-Called Life and Friends, but not much else on the TV schedule caught my eye. A friend of mine loved ABC's Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, so I would go over there to hang out and watch it.

Being sci-fi buffs, we decided we should check out Earth 2, a new show that aired an hour before L&C on NBC. I have this tendency to at least try out all the new science-fiction shows, knowing that even if I like them, the odds of them surviving beyond one season are slim. I quickly gave up on M.A.N.T.I.S. over on Fox, but found myself more intrigued by Earth 2.

What a fascinating and sophisticated look at a science fiction world. It was so much more realistic and grounded than the Star Trek series could ever be. The characters were horribly flawed and they felt much more human. As expected, the show failed, but not before I got 22 great episodes that still resonate in my memory.
