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

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?

Here's the new promo for Lost (from Spain)

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 1st 2009 8:02AM
We aren't getting too many promos for the last season of Lost from ABC (and zero new footage), but this promo from Spain is pretty damn cool. It's hard to see if there's any new footage (I don't think there is), but it's very well done.

Lost spoiler: former cast member to return full-time

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 4th 2009 8:02PM
Ever since Juliet hit the bomb and made it go off we've been wondering what is going to happen on next season's Lost. This could be a clue (and it's a spoiler!)

A former cast member is returning to the show, and her return will make Lost fans come up with many theories, guesses, and scenarios. Emilie De Ravin will return to the show as Claire. And it's not going to be one of those cameos or limited-time deals, she's returning to the show full-time. Which means...well, who knows what it means. Could Claire be alive? A ghost? Evil like fake Locke? Flashbacks?

So will Elizabeth Mitchell be on Lost next season?

by Bob Sassone, posted May 19th 2009 3:03PM
Elizabeth MitchellOK, so Juliet set off the bomb at the end of the Lost season finale. I guess we can assume that this means that Jack and Daniel's plan to blow up the Swan worked and that history (or the future) has been changed and Oceanic Flight 815 will arrive safely in Los Angeles. I mean, the only other thing that can happen is the island blows up and they all ... die? There's probably a third option, though I'm out of Advil right now and don't want to think of it. Maybe the bomb goes off and it wasn't as bad as they thought it would be?

But back to Juliet. It was announced earlier today that Elizabeth Mitchell will be a full-time cast member of the ABC remake of V, so this probably means that she'll be gone from the show, even if her character is alive or they have flashbacks or whatever. Unless the island hides a race of alien lizard people, she's gone from the show. Or is she? Michael Ausiello is reporting she'll be in a "handful" of episodes next season.

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

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.

Sneak Peek: tonight's 100th episode of Lost

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 29th 2009 12:02PM
Tonight is the 100th episode of Lost, and it's one that revolves around Daniel Faraday. We haven't seen much of him in the past several episodes, except for his appearance at the end of the last episode when he emerged out of the sub and met Miles. I have a feeling something big is going to happen tonight, and judging from this clip I think I'm right.

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.

Lost: an open thread about last night's annoying recap show

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 23rd 2009 8:37AM
Lost

OK, maybe "annoying" is too harsh, as I can see people being into recap shows if they're done well. Then again, if you're a big fan of Lost, then you've already seen this stuff and you're really aching for a new episode.

So did you enjoy last night's recap episode, or was it just an irritation to you? Do you welcome weeks where there's either a repeat or a recap so you can take your mind off of the show for a bit? Take the poll after the jump and leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Matthew Perry to appear in the Lost season finale? Yeah, right

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 10th 2009 3:39PM
Matthew PerryThere's an odd little rumor spreading around the internet today, that Friends star Matthew Perry will appear in the season finale of Lost. Is it true or not?

Answer: very not. ABC and Perry's publicist says that there's no truth to the rumor whatsoever. Perry did express a desire to appear in the show, which he loves, but it's not going to happen. How did it start? Well, the IMDb is an awesome web site, but when you can join and pretty much add any info that you want, things like this are going to happen (see also: Wikipedia). His name is still up there though, playing a character named "George Hobbes."

A question I have about last night's Lost

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 2nd 2009 1:25PM
LostLost continues to impress me. I really do think it's one of the great TV dramas of all-time, and last night's episode was rock solid. Except for one thing I'm going to be nit-picky about.

OK, so Sawyer and Kate bring young injured Ben to the Others so they can save him, and Richard tells them that, yeah, I can save him, but he won't remember what happened to him and he'll lose his innocence. Up until now we (and Hurley and Miles, in one of the episodes best scenes) were wondering why Ben didn't remember that Sayid shot him as a kid when he became an adult. And the writers quickly solve this by just having his memory erased?

That seems really, really...lame.

Here's a sneak peek at tonight's Lost - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 25th 2009 1:35PM
LostNeedless to say, this video contains possible spoilers.

So last week's episode of Lost ended with a little Ben delivering a sandwich to Sayid, who was caught by Jin and put in a jail cell. It's hard to say how this is going to play out. We do know that Sayid has always been an independent guy and doesn't like being all cooped up and confined. So will he screw up Sawyer's plans? Will he accidentally expose Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Hurley, Juliet, and Miles? Will he try to escape? And how does junior Ben Linus fit into all of this? Is he already planning things at this age? Does he already know, somehow, about the Oceanic passengers and John Locke? And most importantly, does the kid playing Ben have that weird Michael Emerson stare down pat yet?

The answers after the jump, courtesy of Kristin over at E! It seems like all that camp has to eat are damn sandwiches.

Here is yet another Lost rumor/spoiler

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 23rd 2009 3:25PM
LostAs the title suggests, THIS IS A POSSIBLE SPOILER. IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SPOILED, PLEASE TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER AND RUN FROM THE ROOM WITH YOUR FINGERS IN YOUR EARS.

We've heard about the possible deaths coming up on Lost at the end of the season. A couple of characters (called major or major-ish by various media outlets) will be gone at the end of the season, and the deaths of at least one of them and maybe both are going to cause some fans to be bummed out for the entire summer until next season. So how about some different news?

So, what WAS that behind Sun on Lost last night?

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 19th 2009 3:30PM
Lost
If you've read the comments section of our review of last night's episode of Lost, you'll see that a lot of viewers noticed a mysterious figure lurking in the shadows in the scene where Sun and Frank meet Christian. Now there are a couple of freeze frames that give a closer look.

I have to admit that I didn't see this when I watched the episode live, though I wasn't looking for it. Was it available to everyone or just those watching it in HD? The pic above doesn't really reveal anything. It just looks kinda like a blob. I didn't record the episode so I can't check it. I tried to go to ABC's site but I can't access it right now for some reason. Sigh.

Here's another look at the scene. Still can't tell too much. What do you think? Was it Claire? Charlotte? Someone else? Some filming mistake we weren't supposed to see?

Who's the bad guy on Lost - Ben Linus or Charles Widmore?

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 4th 2009 5:06PM
Charle WidmoreWe won't find the answer to this question on tonight's episode of Lost, but I've been wondering: who is the real bad guy in the Lost power struggle, Ben Linus or Charles Widmore?

On one hand, Ben has done so many evil things that it's hard to see him as a good guy, and killing John Locke last week was probably the ultimate proof that Ben-haters have to name him as the bad guy. But he has also helped the islanders at several points (though we still haven't found out if he's doing that for his own reasons), and is it possible that he killed Locke himself because Locke has to die but can't kill himself for some reason? It's going to be interesting to see Ben wake up from his nap on that bed and see Locke alive again (or will he be surprised)?
