What You Missed Last Night: 'Lost' producers explain things to Jimmy Kimmel

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 3rd 2010 11:55AM
So you watched last night's season premiere of 'Lost,' hopefully with a bottle of Advil by your side. I think I know what's going on (translation: not really). But Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof were on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' last night and actually answered some questions from Jimmy about the plot (and spoiled some of it for the studio audience - the episode was taped before anyone in the audience had seen the episode).

The interview is in two parts, the second is after the jump.

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.

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.

Harold Perrineau and Cynthia Watros to appear in Lost's last season - TCA Report

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 12th 2010 1:01PM
Lost: The Final SeasonDuring the fun session for Lost this morning, executive producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse announced that two favorite cast members will be seen on the show's last season. And since they announced this in front of a room full of 200 reporters, it's safe to talk about it here:

Cynthia Watros, who played Libby, and Harold Perrineau, who played Michael, will both be appearing on the show this season. How and why they will appear, of course, is a secret. Cuse and Lindelof even joked about it, with Cuse going "All your Libby questions will be answered," and Lindelof countering, "No, they won't."

More on the lively panel later.

A Lost spinoff? No, no, no, no, please God no

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 9th 2010 2:30PM
LostDamon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have said that when Lost ends, there won't be a spinoff, a sequel, or even a feature film based on the show. When it's done, it's done.

ABC never got that memo.

The network says that they want to keep the show going in some way, and besides special DVDs and movies, there might also be a spinoff TV show that features new characters and a new plot. [Insert heavy sigh here.] Haven't they ever seen AfterMASH or The Golden Palace?

While it's true that a spinoff can be good and successful (we talked about that yesterday), most are ill-conceived and just a way for a network to keep a franchise going for ratings and $$$$$$. These seems like one of those situations.

'Lost' Creator Damon Lindelof Gives Us New Details on the Show's Final Season

by Nicholas White, posted Nov 18th 2009 1:15PM
Unexpected dish from 'Lost' creator Damon Lindelof falls like manna from heaven.

You never know when it's coming. When it does, you have all the answers you were seeking. Such was the case in Hollywood at Paramount's DVD launch party for 'Star Trek,' which Lindelof produced with his old 'Lost' friend J.J. Abrams.

"We have written 112 episodes, with about 9 more to go. We have come this far, so just trying not to screw it up," Lindelof told AOL at the 'Star Trek' event. "We really want the focus in the last year to be on the original castaways that we have been following since the beginning. But that doesn't mean there won't be a couple new flavors in the mélange. There are a couple new faces, but not as many as there have been in past seasons."

Lindelof and Cuse display Lost ending at Comic-Con... at least on paper

by Neil Gladstone, posted Jul 26th 2009 5:01PM
Lindelof and CuseSince the creators of Lost, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, are always being accused of making the show up as they go along, they decided it was time to prove they had the last page of the show written.

So at this year's Lost Comic-Con panel, which will be the show's last, Damon and Carlton pulled out the final scene to get that chip off of their shoulders: Two pieces of paper they taunted the audience to steal. Although it won't be easy for anyone to get their hands on those pages.

You'll have to watch the panel video to see why, after the jump.

Do you want a happy ending for Lost?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 6th 2009 5:03PM
LostLost begins its sixth and final season early next year (filming starts the end of August), and producers Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof revealed at a BAFTA event that the show will have a definite ending with all of the questions answered, but it won't necessarily be a happy ending. While the ending will be "fair," they say it will also be "bittersweet." We'll have to wait until the new season to see exactly what they mean, but how do you want the show to end?

How should Lost end?
Happy ending: they all get off the island!154 (9.8%)
Kinda-happy ending: some die but most get off the island569 (36.1%)
Kinda-sad ending: some die, some stay on island, lives are screwed up562 (35.7%)
Really sad ending: everyone dies200 (12.7%)
Other scenario (say in comments)89 (5.7%)

Top Chef Masters: The Lost Supper - open thread

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 18th 2009 10:10AM
Dharma foodThis week, Lost's Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof (as well as several writers) came to the Top Chef table to be served food by the contestants and judge them.They're big fans of the show (even joking that the quality of Lost has gone downhill since they've been discussing the shows on Thursday mornings), and this episode had a Lost-themed challenge. They could only use certain Dharma foods and stuff that you could find on the island.

I've gotten used to the "four chefs compete" format, though that means we're not going to see some really talented, interesting chefs in the coming weeks.

This should be fun. Damon Lindelof and Carton Cuse are big fans of Bravo's Top Chef, and this week they're actually going to make an appearance on the Top Chef Masters. The contestants (some have seen Lost and some haven't) have to make a meal for them. Here's a sneak peek.

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

(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?

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.

Let the Star Trek sequel talk begin

by Mike Moody, posted May 5th 2009 1:25PM
star trek uhura paramountActually, talk about a sequel to J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot started a few months ago. In March, Paramount announced plans to hire Abrams' pals Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman (Fringe, um, Star Trek) and Lost producer Damon Lindelof to pen the sequel.

Now, the writing trio is talking about ideas for the sequel. One idea they have is possibly casting Javier Bardem as frakkin' Khan!

I like the idea, but I doubt it's gonna happen. As Lindelof said in a recent interview with Crave, Bardem as Khan -- originally played by Ricardo Montalban in Star Trek II: the Wrath of Khan -- would probably eat up the entire film and possibly push characters like Kirk, Spock and Bones to the sidelines. It would be too big.
