'Lost': Is Sayid Jacob or What?

by Ryan McKee, posted Feb 3rd 2010 9:00AM
On the 'Lost' season 6 premiere, Sayid was dead. He'd been shot in the gut, bled out and seemingly drowned in the magical spring that would supposedly save him.

The creepy new Asian leader (Are we calling them "Other Others"?) said that Sayid was beyond saving, even for the Island. However, right before that all too familiar end, Sayid sat up like he had just been taking an afternoon nap.

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.

Eight of TV's toughest interrogators

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 26th 2009 10:00AM
The fine art of interrogation may seem lost thanks to suspects lawyering up and the Miranda warning. Whatever happened to the days when a snarling cop could throw a perp against a brick wall to get him to squeal? Or a sly questioner could finagle a confession by laying on a guilt trip? Still, there are some very clever, brilliant interrogators plying their trade on these days. In fact, when you look at these eight interrogators, you'll probably agree that they know just how to get to the truth. Here are the eight top interrogators on TV today:

8. Captain James Brass, CSI
Brass is the most "old school" of all these interrogators. He's like Andy Sipowicz from NYPD Blue, only without the violence. Brass talks to suspects with a modicum of respect, but a healthy cynicism. He's seen it all and knows the truth is in there somewhere. He asks questions and waits for them to trip themselves up. When they do, he has them write it down. Despite the laconic attitude, Brass has the brass to get the job done.

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

by Bob Sassone, posted May 13th 2009 11:26AM
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.

The comedic stylings of Sayid Jarrah! - VIDEO

by Eliot Glazer, posted Feb 5th 2009 5:35PM
lost sayid jarrah college humorEven if we've gone way beyond life on the island - with the plots literally weaving through space, time, and place - there was surely a moment when the characters on Lost got tired of swimming and putt-putt. Amid destruction and death, even the survivors of Oceanic 815 surely needed a laugh now and then, which gave Sayid - who apparently moonlights as a stand-up comic when not being awesome with guns and roundhouse kicks - the chance to demonstrate his comic chops for his new friends.

Lost: The Little Prince

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

(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."

Lost: Because You Left (season premiere)

Matthew Fox and Michael Emerson
(S05E01) "You're gonna have to die, John." - Richard Alpert

Time travel! The future is now! later! here! gone! beginning! ending! OK, I give up. Lost is back and the future is... well, we don't know what the future is. Or the past. Or the present. All we know is what they were, because now they're just one big time travelin' mess.

As with seasons past of Lost, the fifth chapter of TV's favorite mindf*ck opens by presenting an entirely new storytelling technique - one that demands equal parts patience, attention, and imagination. More than anything, it's a test for true fans because the casual Lost viewer (do they exist?) probably had a hard time moving from A to Z (worst metaphor ever - I know) in tonight's season premiere. That being said, this whole hour gave me my own bloody nose.

Lost season five - An early look

Lost - Season 5 Cast
As amazing as Lost is, I still hate it for one tiny reason - every time a new season begins, I get terrified that I won't "get it." If that happened, it would completely deflate my enjoyment of the show. While Lost has had its fair share of WTF episodes, most of them are decipherable after repeat viewings; season five's first two installments definitely fall into that category. It's like playing the sequel of your favorite video game - for the most part, the controls and game-play are the same, but there are enough changes that it still takes you a few hours to get a handle on it.

Watercooler Talk: Who are the Oceanic Six?

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 14th 2008 3:26PM

LostOK, so we've all seen the latest episode of Lost and we now know who the Oceanic Six are.

Don't we?

There seems to be some confusion among fans as to whether we've seen the last of the six "survivors" (in quotes because who the hell knows what the end game will reveal). Up until last night's episode we saw that Jack, Kate, Hurley, and Sayid definitely survived. Last night we were supposed to find out the last of the Oceanic Six. It was revealed that Sun survived too, but Jin died (possibly on the island, but that's another plot point to be revealed later).

Lost may get a delayed start next season

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 28th 2007 3:45PM
naveen andrews; sayid; lostLost, meet 24. ABC is reportedly considering waiting until January 2008 to start season four of Lost, and then run it straight through May without any repeats (like Fox does with 24). The revelation comes from a SciFi Wire interview with Naveen Andrews, who plays Sayid on the series. Andrews said, "I believe that's the plan."

This is probably a better plan than what Lost did this year. We only got to see six new episodes, and then the series went on a 13-week break. Ever since its return last month, Lost has lost 1-2 million viewers. It could also be the move to the 10 pm time slot that dinged the ratings.

The interview also reveals how Andrews feels about the direction of the show. Without getting angry or too specific, he basically says that he thought the first season was awesome, but he's not so hot on the subsequent seasons. He says he'd sure like to see more Sayid in the show (wouldn't we all?!?). About the writers, he says, "It's their choice to do what they want with that show, and they will." He sounds mildly unhappy, doesn't he?
