This 'Lost' Character Chart Will Just Confuse You Even More

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 26th 2010 11:00AM
Lost chartAs well all know, 'Lost' is a difficult show to understand, even if you're a regular viewer. A couple dozen characters, various timelines, various locations all add up to a confusing (though great) show.

Wired has a handy character chart (yes, there might be spoilers!), created by bioinformics scientist Martin Krzywinski using Circos software (even that sentence is confusing) that shows how all of the characters are related. The chart showing the entire cast is just a mess of colored lines that might be hard to follow, but you can use the list on the left to narrow down the list of characters and plot points you want to examine.

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

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!

Six Questions I Want 'Lost' to Answer Before It Ends

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 14th 2010 4:54PM
Lost
As last night's episode of 'Lost' showed, this season really is giving us a lot of answers. And even if the show isn't giving us all the answers we want/need, at least we can now feel a forward momentum driving us towards the end. There are only five episodes of the show left, can you believe it?

The show can't possibly answer all of the questions, small and big, that have come up since the show started in 2004. I think they'll answer enough of them for most fans, but you and I both know that 37 seconds after the season finale ends, some people are going to go online and complain. That was a lame ending! They didn't even answer the question I wanted them to answer! I wasted six years for this?!

I won't be one of those people. They've answered the question of the numbers enough for me, and several other mysteries don't bother me. Unless the show ends in a WTF 'Sopranos' fade-out, I'll just go with what the writers give us. Of course, that doesn't mean I don't want some questions answered:

Three Reasons Why 'Lost' is the Greatest Show You'll Never Watch on DVD

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 7th 2010 4:08PM
Lost DVDLast night's episode of 'Lost' was excellent, wasn't it? For the first time this season it seems like we can finally see where the show is headed. The pieces are finally coming together.

We don't know yet who is going to live or die (or even if "live" or "die" mean the same thing in this 'Lost' world) or what it ultimately all means, but last night was certainly a true turning point. Of course, the writers could still throw us a curve and we could find out that alternate-reality Desmond is actually a robot from the future obsessed with cheddar cheese, but it looks like the final handful of episodes will give us a real conclusion.

It's one of the greatest shows in TV history, and I'm probably never going to watch it on DVD.

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?

Cuse and Lindelof Give Some Clues About the 'Lost' Timeline(s)

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 10th 2010 4:30PM
LostIf you're not listening to the weekly 'Lost' podcast, you're missing out on a lot of great stuff. I didn't start listening to it until recently, and I've discovered that not only are the podcasts entertaining, they're giving a lot of clues as to what's happening on the island (and these are official clues, not rumors or theories that you might find on other sites - though producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are more than a little coy in the podcasts).

What jumped out to me in the podcast posted after the season premiere last week has to do with the timeline(s).

Which 'Lost' Cast Member Might Be Getting Killed Off?

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 9th 2010 4:32PM
Lost
The second episode of 'Lost's' final season airs tonight, but they're actually done filming over a dozen episodes this season, so they only have a few more to film before the cast says goodbye to the show forever. One cast member says that his survival at the end of the show is "unlikely." Spoilerish info after the jump.

Newsweek Staff Members Who've Never Seen 'Lost' Watch and Comment

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 5th 2010 1:33PM
The other night while watching the season premiere of 'Lost,' I was thinking about people who have never seen the show. What if they watched this episode? Would they have any idea of what's going on? Would they like it? Would their heads explode?

This video below answers the question a bit. Several Newsweek staff members got together to watch scenes from important moments on the show and tried to figure out what it all means. Some of the comments range from goofy ("Why would that guy make the engine blow up?") to the typical line you hear from a non-fan ("It's heaven!").

More dead people coming back to Lost

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 11th 2009 8:00PM
Lost Lost won't premiere until early next year, but we're already hearing that several former cast members might be coming back to the show. This being Lost, we have no idea how this will happen. Did the bomb succeed? Will it be flashbacks? Ghosts? Time travel? Clones? Robots? Did they never really die in the first place?

Now, another former cast member might be coming back to the show, but only if his current show says yes.

Lost producers want you to write a theme song for the show

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 8th 2009 9:07AM
J.J. AbramsLost is famous for not having a theme song. Or, more accurately, having a short theme song, one that's exactly one note long. J.J. Abrams wrote the song, but now producers of the show want you to come up with a theme song for them. The winning song will be played at this year's Comic-Con in front of many many fans of the show.

Here's a little ditty to get you started, if you want to do one with lyrics. Maybe Abrams can sing it (looks like he's singing in the pic).

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
a tale of a doomed airplane...
