'Lost' - 'The Candidate' Recap

'Lost' - 'The Candidate' Recap(S06E14) That was a big one, and yet still I'm not sure which side I'm supposed to be rooting for. Team Widmore says they're the good guys, but they certainly don't act like it in how they interact with the cast. Meanwhile, MiB-Locke acts more like the good guy with our main cast, but does some pretty questionable things otherwise.

By the end of the episode, it's pretty clear which side of the fence MiB-Locke is on. A little more murky is whether or not whatever Widmore is trying to do is the right thing to do, nor what our intrepid heroes should do next.

'Lost' News: Desmond's Ring, That Final Cast Photo, and a Special Guest Star

LostJust because last night's episode of 'Lost' was a rerun (and a surprise rerun at that), that doesn't mean there isn't any news about the show that we can discuss until next week's all-new episode 'The Candidate.'

After the jump, three nuggets of information show fans might be interested in: Henry Ian Cusick explains that ring that Desmond was wearing in this season's first episode, talks about that final cast photo (that he's not in), and we find out what star of a long-running NBC drama is going to make an appearance in one of the last episodes.

Needless to say, MASSIVE SPOILERS FOLLOW.

If you like politics, check out TCM's Wednesday lineup

McCain/PorterWhile the Republicans are gathering in St. Paul for their national convention to confirm the candidacy of Senator John McCain as presiden,t and Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate, Turner Classic Movies is presenting a night of alternative politics.

The cable channel going to present five movies about politics, and if you want to see how the world of running for public office has changed in the 20th century, these films are a fantastic reflection of the times.

On Wednesday, September 3, starting at 8 PM ET, the night begins with The Last Hurrah, and includes The Candidate (10:15 PM), The Best Man (12:15 AM), Nashville (2 AM) and The Dark Horse (1932).

Like I said, these pictures are all really interesting choices. The Candidate, released in 1972, for instance, is not so different from today's campaign pitting Senator Barack Obama versus Senator John McCain.

It's a young candidate espousing change, up against an experienced, wizened establishment candidate. Robert Redford plays Bill McKay, the up and comer, while Don Porter is the popular, long-time incumbent senator. Check out these photos, because Porter even looks like McCain!
