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:

What if Lost merged with Heroes? - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 20th 2009 3:29PM
LostI'm sure a lot of people have thought about this, actually: what if the world of ABC's Lost someone merged with the world of NBC's Heroes?

Well, for one thing, it would certainly give a boost to Heroes, which a lot of people think needs a boost, but it would also be rather funny, if the video after the jump is any indication. It's from JustForLaughs.com and The Fine Brothers. Basically, they took Lost and Heroes action figures and made a little short film, showing what would happen if the cast of Heroes somehow ended up on the island and had to convince the castaways that they were there to rescue them. Of course, Sylar shows up and wants to control the island, but a surprise giant saves the day (and no, not the one with the odd toes).

I'm impressed at how much the action figures look like the real characters. I'm not kidding when I say that I'd actually watch a Robot Chicken-ish Lost/Heroes show.

Harold Perrineau clarifies his comments

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 3rd 2008 12:03PM

PerrineauYou knew that Harold Perrineau's comments were going to cause a bit of controversy. You also knew that he would have to clarify some of the comments a few days later. Here is that clarification.

The Lost star admits to Entertainment Weekly that "I should probably think more before I say things," referring to comments he made that he was irritated with how producers deal with black characters on the hit ABC show and the fact that Michael couldn't be redeemed and have a happy ending with son Walt. He explains that he was just making an observation as a black man and that he wasn't angry at how the story played out, he was just disappointed. He loved working with the cast and crew and wouldn't be surprised if he came back to the show in the future. He also lists his three favorite and least favorite moments on the show.

My prediction? We haven't seen the last of Michael. He'll be back on the show some way, somehow.

Harold Perrineau not happy about his stint on Lost

by Bob Sassone, posted May 30th 2008 3:38PM

PerrineauYou have to give Harold Perrineau points for being brutally honest.

The Lost star, who (spoiler!) blew up last night in the season finale of the show, can't believe that he came back to the show only to be killed off. In fact, his exact words about the decision to kill off Michael are "...what the hell? I came back for that?!"

Perrineau didn't know he was getting killed off until he got a phone call from the producers right before he received the script for the season finale. He's also unhappy that they didn't give Michael and Walt a happy ending. But perhaps the most interesting part of the interview with TV Guide's (but not for long) Michael Ausiello is where Perrineau says the show doesn't know how to treat black characters...

Harold Perrineau joins CBS pilot

by Brett Love, posted Feb 7th 2007 4:00PM
Harold PerrineauToday marks the big return of Lost, so it seems as good a time as any to see what Harold Perrineau is up to now that Michael has sailed off into the sunset with WAAAAALT! Back in September Anna mentioned some movie work the former Lost star had lined up. Now comes word that he has signed on to co-star in the CBS pilot Demons.

The show tells the story of an ex-Jesuit priest and psychologist named Gus who performs exorcisms. Perrineau will star as another priest who is the longtime friend and confidante of Gus. That's a little light on details, but makes me think of the short-lived Skeet Ulrich vehicle, Miracles, on ABC. Just knowing that little bit though, I'd say Demons has a tough road ahead. Religion is always a tough sell.

It's just a pilot at this stage, so there is no telling if it is even going to go to air, but it does make one less and less confidant that any of those Michael/Walt resolutions that the Lost producers have hinted at will actually bear fruit. The Hollywood Reporter article also mentions that there was talk of Perrineau returning to Lost, but they could not come to an agreement.

Very weird Lost promo -- VIDEO

by Jonathan Toomey, posted Sep 22nd 2006 12:27PM

LostThis is really odd. It's a promo for Lost from Channel 4 in England. I'm not sure quite what to make of it other than it seems to me that it has to be a promo for season one. I say that because A) it prominently features Boone and B) bits and pieces of Flight 815 are still strewn all over the shore. I just don't get why they needed such a weird ad for the show? What's wrong with the ones that air here in the States?

It has it's moments though. I thought it was funny when Locke and Walt were "conducting" the dance and the crazy organ music (I think that's what it's supposed to be). Plus, it was very telling that Jack and Sawyer were fighting over Kate. If all this sounds confusing, you can watch the video after the jump. Any other interpretations? Am I right in thinking this is an old promo?

Lost Lost Lost Lost Lost Lost Lost Lost. Oh, and Lost!

by Bob Sassone, posted May 26th 2006 8:41AM
OK, so we're all trying to figure out what the hell happened on Lost the other night. For all the new questions the arose (what was that big foot statue, who were the two guys in the Arctic station at the end, are Locke/Eko/Desmond dead, etc), I think the biggest question I have is, what the heck is wrong with Charlie? Wasn't he acting just a little bit peculiar last night? The way he acted with Locke and with Eko, and then when the hatch exploded, the next scene we see the castaways just sitting around a fire and he kisses Claire. Didn't he go to see what happened in the hatch after the big light explosion and that weird noise? Aren't the other castaways wondering what was up with that and where Locke/Eko/Desmond are? That was a weird scene, and I'm trying to figure out whether it means something or if it was just lazy writing.

Anyway, TV Guide's Michael Ausiello held a chat at WashingtonPost.com, and he is asked many questions about the season finale (which he loved). Check it out.

Lost: Live Together, Die Alone (finale)

by C.K. Sample, III, posted May 25th 2006 12:07AM
(S02E23) Two hour season finale. Usually that means a slow-paced episode with tons of teaser bits to keep you stringing along with a few hard-hitters near the end to keep you excited for next season. The creators of Lost must have realized that a lot of the fans of the show were feeling like we weren't getting enough answers out of the story line, so they made a jam-packed finale. It was a great episode, and I'm somewhat at a loss where to begin in writing this review.

The episode begins where last week's episode ended: all the castaways on the beach attending the funeral for Ana Lucia and Libby notice a sailboat in the distance off the beach. Sawyer, Jack, and Sayid swim out to the boat to recover the vessel and see what's going on. Once they are aboard, they are greated by gunshots being fired from below deck. They dodge the bullets, then flip up the hatch only to discover a drunken Desmond below deck, recognizing Jack, saying "You," just before we go to the title screen.

The last Lost chat of the season!

by Ryan j Budke, posted May 24th 2006 8:00PM
lost; the others; the islandThis is it folks. The second season finale of Lost. This episode has been getting quite a bit of buzz about it. I'm pretty sure it's co-written by God the way that those who have seen it talk about it. At least one big shock has been given away if you pay real close attention to the commercials. Don't be caught off-guard! Make sure you you join me here tonight so that you can voice your own opinion. As with all of our chats, you need to have AIM or a compatible client (Trillian, GAIM, etc). Once you have that, make sure you meet right back here to this very post at 8pm ET, and that's when I'll unveil the location for the chat room. You can chat along with me (TVSRyan) and the rest of the Lost fanatics live! I'll see you there.

Lost action figures... with kung-fu grip!

by Annie Wu, posted May 24th 2006 1:32PM
LostOkay, maybe not with kung-fu grip. "Faces in perpetual states of shock, horror, and/or 'WTF'-ness" are more likely. Anyway, McFarlane Toys are coming out with a new line of Lost action figures of season one's "fan-favorites", Jack, Kate, Locke, Hurley, Charlie, and Shannon. They've just released a picture of the Charlie figure. He's sitting down, writing on his fingers. Hmm... Doesn't look very action-y. McFarlane Toys is also releasing boxsets, little dioramas that recreate key moments of the show. So, if you don't like the season finale, you can always film your own.

Maybe it's just me, but the choice of Shannon to be a part of the first set of "fan-favorite" toys comes as a bit of a surprise. If I had to go for one of the deadsies for this first set, I would have picked a Boone figure over a Shannon one. The fact that I found Boone attractive has nothing little to do with it. The toys are expected Fall of this year.

TV Squad Lost Podcast: Three Minutes

by Ryan j Budke, posted May 18th 2006 11:13PM
lost podcastC.K. and I return for the second to last episode of the season (and possibly our second to last podcast ever!) Three minutes. This one dealt with Micheal's time with the others and it felt very much like "the calm before the storm." Everyone's been hyping up next week's finale so much that I'm pretty sure that God was a co-writer on it. We'll have to wait and see, in the meantime, listen in on our thoughts and let us know what you think.

Lost: Three Minutes

by C.K. Sample, III, posted May 17th 2006 11:01PM
(S02E22) Tonight's episode of Lost titled "Three Minutes" begins 13 days in the past, when Michael first knocked out Locke, stole a gun, and locked Locke and Jack in the closet together. For the entire episode, we flash back and forth between Michael's side of the thirteen days he's been missing and the current actions on the island. This is only the third episode of Lost to exclusively focus on flashbacks from the island with no look at someone's life off the island (the others being "The Other 48 Days" and the episode where Claire recovers her past memories from when she was abducted by the Others).

Lost: The Hunting Party

by C.K. Sample, III, posted Jan 18th 2006 11:59PM
"The Hunting Party," tonight's episode of Lost was again filled with new twists, turns, and revelations. The character du jour of the show was Jack, and while we were shown more interactions between him and his father in the show's flashbacks, the main story line of the backstory revolved around his relationship with his wife. As you'll recall, in a previous episode we discovered that Jack's wife was the same woman who crashed her car into Shannon's father, killing him. Jack married her after miraculously curing a back injury that should have left her paralyzed for life.

We begin "The Hunting Party" in a flashback of a father and daughter talking to Jack and Jack's father for assistance in removing a tumor in the father's spine. The surgery is too risky and Jack's father tells them he's not willing to operate. We then discover that Jack has some fame as a miracle doctor after healing his wife, and that they weren't interested in Jack's father's help, but rather came to seek Jack's help. Jack, partially to feed his pride and partially to defy his father, agrees to the surgery.
