Guy Finds Call Sheet For 'Lost' Finale and Now It's Online

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 23rd 2010 2:25PM
call sheetNeedless to say, this post contains massive spoilers.

So a guy was sitting in a Honolulu restaurant recently and saw a piece of paper that had the word 'Lost' on it. Turns out it's the studio call sheet for the series finale! What does he do? He sends it to Gawker, of course (see also iPhone, Apple's new). And it looks like it's the real thing because ABC contacted Gawker and they want the call sheet back.

What secrets does it hold? If you want to know more, continue after the jump. If you don't want to know more, click here for some great pasta recipes at Kitchen Daily!

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?

Carrie Preston Talks 'True Blood' Season 3 (Is Arlene Dead?!) and 'Good Wife'

by Kelly Woo, posted Apr 5th 2010 12:00PM
Carrie Preston'True Blood' star Carrie Preston doesn't have to go far to get scoop on one of her favorite shows, 'Lost.' All she has to do is turn over and ask Michael Emerson, who plays Ben Linus. Yes, these well-respected, fan-favorite actors on two of the most high-profile shows on television are married.

Now that's we call a Hollywood power couple.

But while Preston and Emerson may not be paparazzi targets like Brangelina, anything they say or do concerning their respective shows gets dissected and analyzed by fans on the Internet. Case in point: When it was announced that Preston would be guest starring on CBS' new hit legal drama 'The Good Wife,' fans of 'True Blood' instantly began to speculate whether this meant death for her character, waitress Arlene.

Hold your horses, though, she warned in an interview with AOL TV. "Let me put it this way, we've done half the season and I'm still there," she said. Preston spoke about the furor surrounding her 'Good Wife' guest stint, the upcoming third season of 'True Blood' and what she knows about the 'Lost' finale.

'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.

The Life and Times of 'Lost's' Ben Linus (Set to Michael Jackson's "Ben")

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 18th 2010 2:37PM
ABC is releasing videos based on various characters from 'Lost.' This one is for Ben Linus, and it's set to Michael Jackson's "Ben,' a song about a rat (which is how some people see Ben). It's a nice recap of everything Ben has done over the seasons.

You have to give Michael Emerson credit. Even though Ben Linus has lied, cheated, schemed, beaten, and killed, you still feel sorry for him.

What You Missed Last Night: Michael Emerson Reveals a 'Lost' Secret to Kimmel

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 10th 2010 12:35PM
I thought last night's episode of 'Lost' was one of the best ever: exciting, unpredictable, with several developments that moves the story along and it even had a cliffhanger. Michael Emerson deserves an Emmy for this episode alone. He also showed up on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' to reveal, um, something. (Here's the YouTube version if you can't see what's below.)

'Lost' - 'Dr. Linus' Recap

'Lost' - 'Dr. Linus'
(S06E07)
Benjamin Linus is one of the most fascinating characters ever put to screen, played with devilish brilliance by Michael Emerson. He positively dominates every scene he's in with those intense, thoughtful and incredibly dangerous big eyes of his. This week, we got to see quite literally two sides of Ben Linus.

Considering that virtually Ben's entire life happened on the island in the alpha-verse, I had been intrigued as to what beta-Ben would be like ever since his first appearance in 'The Substitute' three weeks ago. As I anticipated, our flash-sideways picks up events somewhat shortly after Locke's story.

It also features Locke, as well as a few other familiar faces in new and intriguing roles. At this point, I think I could watch an entire series set in the beta-verse just to see all these people's lives interconnect. It's truly fascinating stuff.

Ben Gets Some Love on 'Lost' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 10th 2010 1:08AM
Lost, Ben LinusOh, Ben. You're just a misunderstood puppy, aren't you? You watched your daughter die, and you've had to live with the choice you made – the island over saving her. It was all about Jacob for you, wasn't it, and where did it get you?

But don't worry, puppy, you're not alone. There are people who will have you, bug-eyes and all, and not just Locke either. Hang in there. It'll all make sense eventually, hopefully by the season finale of 'Lost' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC).

The Most Awesome Video You'll See Today (And It Stars Someone From 'Lost')

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 4th 2010 12:30PM
I love seeing clips of what stars did before they became big. The first stepping stone to stardom is often TV commercials or plays, but there are other avenues as well, including instructional videos. This one is from 1992. It's a prison training video. Take a look at the counselor who is called in to help one of the inmates. He even had that creepy stare back then (though with more hair, which doesn't quite look right to me). I want to know how this ends.

'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.

Terry O'Quinn is Shopping Around a New Show with Michael Emerson

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 25th 2010 3:01PM
Terry O'QuinnWould you watch a 'Lost' spinoff? Not one that would focus still on the island (perhaps with different castaways) but one that took a couple of characters and gave them new lives and new jobs in another city? Terry O'Quinn is shopping one around that would star him and Michael Emerson (Ben).

The show's tentative title is 'I'm Ben, He's Locke!' and it would feature the two men living a completely different life off of the island. The two find themselves divorced, living in New York City, and various circumstances bring them together as roommates. Can two divorced men who used to live on a mysterious island and traveled through time and later one was taken over by a smoke monster and the other one killed his rival share an apartment, without driving each other crazy?

OK, all of that's a lie. The story that O'Quinn is shopping around is about two hit men who live in the suburbs who have to keep their secret lives hidden from their families while dealing with various problems both domestic and professional. Hey, I'd watch that. O'Quinn and Emerson are two of the best actors on TV right now.

'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.

Michael Emerson: Good News About Upcoming 'Lost' Episodes (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Feb 17th 2010 7:45AM
Jimmy Kimmel Live - Michael Emerson, LostWorried that 'Lost' won't be resolved by the season finale? Let not your hearts be troubled, said Michael Emerson on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC). "The audience will have the pleasure of knowing that pretty much every episode this season will have a big chunk of puzzle fall into place. But at the same time, new mysteries arise."

OK, there aren't that many episodes left, people. If new mysteries arise, will there be time to resolve those, as well as the old mysteries? Are we talking feature film here? Trilogy perhaps?

'Lost' - 'What Kate Does' Recap

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.
