Damon Lindelof Says 'Lost' Fans Will Still Have Questions After Finale

by Rich Keller, posted Apr 29th 2010 5:15PM
Damon Lindelof says not all questions will be answered in the 'Lost' finaleThe creators of 'Lost' are not nice people. Oh, they may entertain us with smoke monsters, islands that are not islands and time jumps that would trick even H.G. Wells, but they have left so many questions unanswered during the last five seasons that fans are still trying to figure out what the heck is going on. The only thing that's keeping them going is the feeling that all will be answered in the series finale.

Well, guess what? That's not happening, either.

So says co-creator Damon Lindelof. In an interview with the Live Feed, Lindelof states that they'll be as definitive as they can be with their ending; however, people are still going to say, "What did they mean by that?" That's not to say the finale is going to be like the still talked about cut-to-black ending of 'The Sopranos.'

People Who Have Only Seen One Episode of 'Lost' Will Never Understand It

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: _______?

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.

So what has happened since then?

The Smoke Monster Gets Angry on 'Lost' (VIDEO)

by Jane Boursaw, posted Mar 2nd 2010 2:59AM
Lost, Smoke Monster, KateSmokey the bandit or bear or Locke or whatever it is made an appearance on 'Lost' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC) last night. Seriously, that thing is like the worst demon of 'Supernatural,' 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer,' and 'True Blood' all put together.

And, apparently, it only makes matters worse if you hang out in a temple. We're just glad our heroes have some smooth moves left in them.

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).

'Lost' - 'What Kate Does' Recap

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Feb 10th 2010 12:46AM
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.

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.

'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.

Holy Crap! John Locke is the Smoke Monster on 'Lost'! (VIDEO)

'Lost' - John Locke is the Smoke MonsterWhat the... ?!! Did you guys see this coming?! Tonight's 'beginning of the end' episode of 'Lost' (Tues., 9PM ET on ABC) was a thrill ride like no other.

When John Locke looked at Ben and said, "I'm sorry you had to see me like that," it was the line heard 'round the world. Of course, this was after the Smoke Monster swirled around and took out a few people in the process – meaning John Locke is the Smoke Monster!

Yes, we're majorly excited about the repercussions of all this and can't wait to find out what happens next. And didn't Terry O'Quinn turn in another fine performance as Locke? Read our recap of tonight's episode of 'Lost.'

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%)

Michael Emerson: The TV Squad Interview

by Kona Gallagher, posted May 13th 2009 11:03AM
michael emerson lost
As the creeptastic Ben Linus on Lost, Michael Emerson has been the puppet master on the island. He spends his days murdering people, causing others to murder different people, playing mind games and just generally making life more difficult for the survivors of Oceanic flight 815 and everyone else whom he encounters.

Ever since he was going by the name, "Henry Gale," Ben has been a fan favorite on the series. Recently, I was able to grab a few minutes of his time to chat about this week's season finale of Lost and the evolution of Benjamin Linus. He even gives me some parenting advice!

The interview follows after the jump, and as we do discuss this week's finale, I should probably give you a spoiler warning right now. However, since it's Lost, he's not able to give too much away. FACT: The smoke monster is real, and is deployed against any actor who dares to speak too freely about the show-- so I got what I could.

Michael Emerson talks about the Smoke Monster, Lost fans, and the show's 100th episode

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 27th 2009 11:45AM
It's rare to get an actor like Lost's Michael Emerson on a network TV show. He's quirky, slightly off-kilter (I mean that in a good way), unpredictable with his line readings, and someone that can do as much with a look on his face as with a speech of 1000 words. In other words, he's a good actor. Here's a clip from TV Guide where Emerson talks about filming that "judgment" scene with the Smoke Monster (yes, I'm capitalizing it), the show's 100th episode (this Wednesday), and what it's like to actually be recognized by people on the street.

Here's a clip from tonight's Lost - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 8th 2009 1:36PM

When we last left our castaways on Lost, Ben had just woken up and seen that Locke was sitting next to his bed. Locke obviously has a ton of questions for Mr. Linus, such as "why did you strangle me to death," and Ben had a look of surprise on his face.

So fans are wondering if Ben is shocked to find out that Locke is alive (because he was, you know, dead) or if Ben killed Locke knowing that he would come back to life some day (I just realized how crazy that sentence must sound to people who don't watch the show). Well, after the jump is a sneak peek at tonight's new episode, courtesy of Kristin over at E!

Kimmel grills the Lost guys - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted May 5th 2008 4:27PM

Lost logoIt's good to have a talk show host who is also a big TV fan. Most times, a celeb or producer or writer will come on the show and the only thing that the host can talk to them regarding their latest project is something in general terms, maybe an "I saw the movie and it's great" and not much more. Luckily, Jimmy Kimmel is as much a Lost fan as the rest of us.

He had producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse on the show last week and asked them many questions about the show (side note: did you know they both worked on Nash Bridges, which Cuse created?!). But the big question answered had nothing to do with the smoke monster or time travel or the flash forwards or numbers or hatches or Michael Emerson, who was supposed to be on the show for only two episodes at first, or why the smoke monster didn't kill the mercenaries (there's a reason!). Those aren't the important mysteries.

The big question is, what the hell is going on with Matthew Fox's chest hair? Video after the jump!

Is Lost a repeat this week?

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 30th 2006 7:41PM
LostHa! A funny web site helps the die-hard Lost fan figure out if that week's episode is a repeat (lately, the answer has been yes), or no.

And I mean that's exactly what you get on the web site. If Lost is a repeat a particular week, all you'll see on the whole web page is a "NO!" If it's a new episode, it's just a "YES!"

I love a web site that gets right down to it.
