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.

Subtle Subtitles: Lost

by Bob Sassone, posted May 15th 2009 10:03AM
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?

Michael Emerson: The TV Squad Interview

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.

Lost: Follow the Leader

(S05E15) "I have a purpose now." - Locke

I can't believe how fast this season of Lost has gone by. There's probably a time-travel joke buried in that realization somewhere, but my head is still spinning from "Follow the Leader," so I'm not really in clever witticism mode. Honestly, I'm speechless. For the most part, this wasn't one of my favorite episodes of the season. But for me to be at a loss for words at one of Lost's sub-par installments - well that says something about the quality of this show. "Follow the Leader" was a lot of set up for next week's two hour finale and the events that have been set in motion (even though it seems they always happened) are mind-numbing.

Lost: The Variable

Jeremy Davies as Daniel Faraday on 'Lost.'
(S05E14) "Well, I got some bad news for you Jack. You don't belong here at all. She was wrong." - Faraday

After listening to Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof ranting in last week's Lost audio podcast, I didn't expect "The Variable" to be this much of a game changer. Everything we thought we knew about the island, time travel, and course correcting - it all got turned upside down. I think it's safe to say that the 100th episode of Lost is going to be remembered for more than just its milestone significance.

Lost: Some Like it Hoth

Ken Leung as Miles Straume on 'Lost.'
(S05E13) "That douche is my dad." - Miles

I've been waiting for an episode like this. We've gotten close to nothing when it comes to backstory on the freighter folk and had it not been for the writer's strike, I'm guessing that "Some Like it Hoth" (or at least something Miles related) would have aired during season four. Last time we got any substantial info on Miles' orgins was "Confirmed Dead" and all that filled us in on was ghost whisperin' powers and his conscience - ripping people off doesn't come easy for him. We got a helluva lot more info this time around.

Michael Emerson as Ben Linus on ABC's 'Lost.'(S05E12) "Well... John, we don't even have a word for it. But I believe you call it 'the monster'" - Ben

Wow, I'm not quite sure where to begin. This wasn't one of the best episodes of Lost (for lack of a better term, it was safe), but I walked away from it feeling enlightened. It's not often that Lost leaves you with more answers than questions.

That being said, I still have a ton of f%#k&$g questions.

Here's a clip from tonight's Lost - VIDEO

When we last left our castaways on Lost, Ben had just woken up and seen that Locke was sitting next to his bed. Locke obviously has a ton of questions for Mr. Linus, such as "why did you strangle me to death," and Ben had a look of surprise on his face.

So fans are wondering if Ben is shocked to find out that Locke is alive (because he was, you know, dead) or if Ben killed Locke knowing that he would come back to life some day (I just realized how crazy that sentence must sound to people who don't watch the show). Well, after the jump is a sneak peek at tonight's new episode, courtesy of Kristin over at E!

Are you ready for The Fork in the Outlet?

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 7th 2009 6:10PM
LostRemember a couple of weeks when we told you that Lost producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and ABC were holding a contest for fans of the show to give the season finale a quirky name? Every season finale of the show has gone by a code name: season one had "The Bagel" and last season was "The Rattlesnake in the Mailbox." What will this season's finale be called?

The winner has been revealed and it's ... "The Fork in the Outlet." Who knows if this will be literal (after all, what the heck does "The Bagel" have to do with the season one finale?), but I think we're in for something "shocking." I've never put a utensil in an electrical outlet before, but I did touch a light switch with wet hands once and got a jolt. Never again.

I kinda like some of the entries that didn't win, especially "The Droids You're Looking For," and "The Fifth Toe." Maybe they should have named it "Scotty, Beam Me Up," to tie in with J.J. Abrams' new Star Trek flick, also in May.

A question I have about last night's Lost

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 2nd 2009 1:25PM
LostLost continues to impress me. I really do think it's one of the great TV dramas of all-time, and last night's episode was rock solid. Except for one thing I'm going to be nit-picky about.

OK, so Sawyer and Kate bring young injured Ben to the Others so they can save him, and Richard tells them that, yeah, I can save him, but he won't remember what happened to him and he'll lose his innocence. Up until now we (and Hurley and Miles, in one of the episodes best scenes) were wondering why Ben didn't remember that Sayid shot him as a kid when he became an adult. And the writers quickly solve this by just having his memory erased?

That seems really, really...lame.

Lost: Whatever Happened, Happened

Ken Leung and Jorge Garcia
(S05E11) "Maybe there's something they can do." - Juliet

At the risk of sounding clichéd, I'm gonna say it anyway - all the pieces are coming together. While I didn't particularly care for any of tonight's flashbacks (personally, I've never really gotten into Kate at all), what happened on the island in 1977 was mesmerizing. It's looking more and more like the Oceanic 6 (plus Juliet, Miles, etc.) were directly responsible for, well ... everything.

Lost: He's Our You

Naveen Andrews as Sayid on 'Lost.'
(S05E10) "A twelve-year-old Ben Linus brought me a chicken salad sandwich. How do you think I'm doing?" - Sayid

Hands down, no doubt about it - best episode of the season. "He's Our You" was much more of a traditional Lost episode, in the sense that we had regular ol' flashbacks. There's been a lot of questions about Sayid (we haven't seen too much of him this season), and this was probably the most sensible way to do it - lay out his current predicament while flashing to all the moments that got him there. Who likes sandwiches?

Here's a sneak peek at tonight's Lost - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 25th 2009 1:35PM
LostNeedless to say, this video contains possible spoilers.

So last week's episode of Lost ended with a little Ben delivering a sandwich to Sayid, who was caught by Jin and put in a jail cell. It's hard to say how this is going to play out. We do know that Sayid has always been an independent guy and doesn't like being all cooped up and confined. So will he screw up Sawyer's plans? Will he accidentally expose Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Hurley, Juliet, and Miles? Will he try to escape? And how does junior Ben Linus fit into all of this? Is he already planning things at this age? Does he already know, somehow, about the Oceanic passengers and John Locke? And most importantly, does the kid playing Ben have that weird Michael Emerson stare down pat yet?

The answers after the jump, courtesy of Kristin over at E! It seems like all that camp has to eat are damn sandwiches.

Lost: Namaste

(L-R): Josh Holloway, Evangeline Lilly, Jorge Garcia, and Matthew Fox
(S05E09) "Dude, your English is awesome." - Hurley

We've had two weeks to stew on the events of "LaFleur" and maybe that's why I went into "Namaste" expecting so much more. That isn't to say that I was disappointed with the Oceanic Six/Left Behinders reunion. The simplest way to put it is that the nature of the narrative on Lost has forced the show to change so that these are the types of stories that are most organic to the plot now.

The flashbacks from the first few seasons are a distant memory at this point, and it's exciting because for a while now, we've been watching stuff that didn't already happen. Well ... technically it did since they're all in 1977 now, but you get what I mean. One thing is for certain - no matter how you slice it, three years is a long time.
