'Lost' - 'Lighthouse' Recap

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 24th 2010 4:18AM
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.

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

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!)

Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly are Finished with TV When 'Lost' Ends

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 2nd 2010 3:35PM
Fox, LillyYou hear it from TV stars all the time: after someone stars on a TV show (especially a popular one that lasts 5 or 7 or 10 years), they say they're never coming back to television again. They want to graduate to the film world and see how things go there. David Caruso could probably warn you against saying that, but TV stars keep saying it anyway.

The latest with that plan are 'Lost' stars Matthew Fox and Evangeline Lilly. Fox says he's done 300 hours of TV ('Lost' and 'Party of Five') so he wants to move back to the Pacific Northwest to be with his family and try films. Lilly? She wants to quit acting altogether! She says she might work on films, but it could be behind the scenes.

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.

So whose eye was that on Lost anyway?

Lost eye

One of the major topics of discussion regarding the Lost season finale is the last shot of an eye opening suddenly in the quick teaser for the final season. A lot of people think it's Juliet's eye, but some fans have done an analysis and say it's actually ... Jack's!

You can see the teaser again at the link above.

Here's a sneak peek at tonight's Lost season finale (yes, SPOILERS!)

So, here we are, on the day that Lost fanatics have been both looking forwarding to (yay, a two-hour season finale!) and dreading (damn, no more Lost until next year!). Here's a clip from the episode, with Jack and Sayid trying to get to escape the compound before any of the residents see them.

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.

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.

Here is yet another Lost rumor/spoiler

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 23rd 2009 3:25PM
LostAs the title suggests, THIS IS A POSSIBLE SPOILER. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED, PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER AND RUN FROM THE ROOM WITH YOUR FINGERS IN YOUR EARS.

We've heard about the possible deaths coming up on Lost at the end of the season. A couple of characters (called major or major-ish by various media outlets) will be gone at the end of the season, and the deaths of at least one of them and maybe both are going to cause some fans to be bummed out for the entire summer until next season. So how about some different news?

Lost: Should Sawyer be with Kate or Juliet?

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 5th 2009 1:03PM
LostAs the great philosopher Rick Springfield once said, you better love somebody, it's late. You better love somebody, don't wait. You better love somebody, don't...tempt fate. That's sort of what happened with Sawyer and Juliet did on last night's episode of Lost, isn't it?

Kate is gone, and Sawyer didn't know if he was going to see her again. Same with Jack. Juliet didn't know what was going to happen. So Sawyer and Juliet got together. I'm not saying that they "settled" for each other because they didn't have anyone else (though when you're on an island and you don't have many choices...). I'm sure they actually fell in love in the three years depicted in the episode.

And then at the end, Kate returns to the island and Sawyer has to deal with all of it again. Oh oh. (This show has something for everybody, whether you like soap opera love triangle plots or killer smoke monsters and time travel.)

Is Evangeline Lilly leaving Lost?

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 26th 2009 1:01PM
LostCould one of the top stars be leaving one of TV's top shows?

Zap2It is reporting that Evangeline Lilly, who plays Kate on ABC's Lost, is currently auditioning for roles on new TV shows. And these aren't shows that are going to premiere after Lost ends its run after next season, these are pilots for new shows starting this fall. Hmmm...

This wouldn't be the first time that Lost has gotten rid of a major character on the. They killed off Charlie and Eko and Anna and got rid of Michael and Walt, so it's not like the show is against throwing fans for a loop and having anything possible. But Kate is a major major character, one that holds a lot of the plots together emotionally (her relationships with Jack and Sawyer, taking care of Aaron for Claire) so it would be a big deal if she were to leave. Several Lost sites have been reporting that a "majorish" character will be killed off before this season ends.

(Lilly's rep says the report isn't true.)

Ken Jennings thinks Lost is making a mistake this season

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 6th 2009 2:33PM
Lost logoI'm a sucker for time travel shows. I loved it when Star Trek did it (all of the Star Trek shows did it, several times) and Back to the Future is one of my favorite films. So I'm really enjoying Lost this season, with it's time-tripping and skipping. But I have some problems with it, and so does Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings.

Jennings mentions on his blog that he thinks the writers have actually answered too many questions, which isn't a complaint that you hear from Lost fans too often. He thinks if they had left more plot questions, some of the things that happened in previous seasons "could now be explained as the actions of Future Juliet or Future Sawyer or somebody."

Jennings thinks it's smart that the show has the rule that you can't change what happened, because if something happens a certain way it will always happen that way. But I think the show is breaking that rule here and there.

Lost: The Little Prince

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Feb 5th 2009 1:03AM

(L-R) WILLIAM BLANCHETTE, EVANGELINE LILLY, & YUNJIN KIM
(S05E04) "I have to make them come back... even if it kills me." - Locke

And so begins the quest of Jeremy Bentham. That's been one of the real treats this season - seeing the Oceanic Six in the present while having their plot juxtaposed against the real-time (well... as "real-time" as real-time can get when you're time traveling) plight of those still on the island three years ago. The fact that we only saw Locke lay the foundation for his plan involving the Orchid to get everyone back was still mesmerizing. I love knowing what happens to him but not knowing the circumstances of his "suicide" and how he ended up in that coffin at Hoffs Drawler. Despite the lack of any more development on Locke's plan beyond what we got, this episode was still phenomenal - mainly because two people we've all been missing finally showed up again.

Lost: Jughead

Jeremy Davies and Nestor Carbonell
(S05E03) "Because... he's one of my people." - Locke

I really need to get in the habit of taping my mouth shut while watching Lost because my jaw is always on the floor by the end of every episode. Time-traveling has added an entirely new dimension (literally) to the story-telling techniques of this show and the first three hours of this season have been some of Lost's best. The flash-backs always lacked a certain amount of tension because they already happened. On the flip side of the same coin, the same can be said about the flash-forwards because you know they're going to happen. But time-traveling has created this new ripple where nothing has permanence anymore, whether it happened, is happening, or will happen. This is mesmerizing stuff to watch unfold because everything becomes new the second Faraday, Locke, and Co. make a new jump. They may not be altering the ultimate outcome, but they are altering the moment.

Lost: The Lie

Jorge Garcia(S05E02) "There's no calling my father off." - Penny

Everybody lies. Some people enjoy the thrill of getting away with it ... and then there's Hurley. While this wasn't a traditional flash-back/flash-forward episode with one character as the focus (hard to say if those will ever be feasible again), this was pretty much a Hurley-centric hour anyway.

As the plot progresses this season, it's going to be interesting to see who becomes important (and who becomes irrelevant) to the ultimate endgame. That being said, we learned one pretty important fact in this episode:

Without Hugo in the mix, "then God help us all."
