On Lost: A Fresh Start, and Jorge Garcia Interview

(7) Comments | Posted February 4, 2010 | 4:14 PM

This week's season premiere of Lost showed that the creative team behind the show is not resting on their laurels. It's rather daring to think that not only have they gone from flashbacks to flashforwards which was mind blowing at the end of season 3, but now we have "flash...

On Lost: Sunset on the Beach Lost Premiere

(19) Comments | Posted February 1, 2010 | 8:02 PM

After nine months of waiting, the end begins. Over the past 5 years, Lost has been one of the most watched, most cherished, and most debated shows ever. Saturday night, ABC premiered the first hour of what will be Lost's last season on the beautiful Waikiki beach in Honolulu, Hawaii....

On Lost: "The Incident" Season Finale

(164) Comments | Posted May 14, 2009 | 11:08 AM

Wow, curse you Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse for writing what might top the Season 1 finale for most unsatisfying finale ever! Juliet striking a hydrogen bomb core with a rock was emotionally and visually stirring. Then a flash of white, cut to LOST. Except this time, it is a...

On Lost: "Follow the Leader"

(35) Comments | Posted May 7, 2009 | 3:34 PM

Last night's season finale set-up episode titled "Follow the Leader" was nail-biting fun. The last line summed it up perfectly: "I'm going to kill Jacob." Why was that line so much fun? Because I guarantee not one of you out there expected the resurrected John Locke to say that. That...

On Lost "The Variable"

(28) Comments | Posted April 30, 2009 | 4:21 PM

Wow. That was a rather intense episode. A mother sends her only son to be killed by herself in the past to save the world? And we thought Locke was the "Messiah" figure. Last night's 100th episode of the series, titled "The Variable," played out like a classic Greek tragedy....

Benjamin Linus The Follower. That statement just doesn't make sense to me. At the end of the new episode "Dead is Dead," a spectral Alex threatened Ben to follow John Locke or be destroyed. Ben said yes but can we really believe him?

On Lost: "Whatever Happened, Happened"

(18) Comments | Posted April 3, 2009 | 12:36 AM

Lost is back on track! After a short detour last week, Lost re-entered the land of interesting episodes with last night's "Whatever Happened, Happened." It's probably a good thing I didn't write about "He's Our You." I considered it to be by far the most boring Lost episode in recent...

On Lost: "Namaste"

After a week off from ABC's Lost, we dove right back into the story. The Oceanic Six are back on the Island, but they are the odd men (and women) out. Ever one for transitioning smoothly, Jack seems like a lost little boy when he finds himself in the shadow...

What a turnaround for a character on Lost! Sawyer, who started out this show as one of the characters you love to hate, has officially made the turn as one of the characters you love and go "Awww" over. I was worried about this episode being another Sawyer and Kate...

Who has just moved up to the number one spot on the all-time "Most Evil T.V. Bad Guys" list? Ben. Just when we felt like we could trust him and actually feel for him, he goes and stabs (strangles) the back of John Locke. Now I have personally met and...

On Lost: "316"

(28) Comments | Posted February 19, 2009 | 8:07 AM

Last week I asked the question, "Where are we going?" It only took an episode to get that answer. Last night's "eye opening" parallel to the "Pilot" episode gave us so much information. At the same time, we also got some solid new mysteries and new characters that seem to...

Did Jin change the future?

After hearing Rousseau's transmission at the end of the first ever episode of Lost, Charlie posed the infamous question, "Guys, where are we?" After last night's episode "This Place Is Death" I think the question has now become,...

Jin has had a pretty bad day, but he is still alive!

And the best guy to hang out with on a time slipping, mysterious, monster inhabited island is...? That's right, the hunky, wise-cracking Sawyer. Sawyer's line in last night's episode, "Time travel's a bitch!"...

The puzzle pieces are coming together. While the introduction of time travel has sent some fans running for the hills, for other fans, time travel has left us on the edge of our seat, biting our fingers in delightful agony as the mystery of...

After a terribly long 9 months Damon and Carlton decided the best way to get our heads back into Lost was to smack them with a steel-cooking utensil. One might say the skipping record player in last night's 2-episode season premiere was a...

A recent Variety report has been released stating that Columbia Pictures has hired "The Office" co-executive producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky to write a script for a new Ghostbusters movie. This latest news has been the tip of the iceberg...

Let the 9 months of speculation begin -- and HOLY CRAP! LOCKE IS IN THE COFFIN?! Last night, we had ABC's self-proclaimed night of Lost, I think it's safe to say they weren't bluffing. Last night's conclusion to season 4 did not disappoint. In...

Here we are at the beginning of the end of Season 4. "There's No Place Like Home Part 1" was a great start to a season finale and once we have all three parts, I think this episode will be even better. This may...

Poor Locke. Last night's episode showed that from the day he was born, he just has no luck. He was born premature after a car hit his pregnant mom, his mother left him, and he had that creepy Richard Alpert trying to steal him...

Chalk one up for the Jaters... oh wait, maybe not. Last night's episode "Something Nice Back Home" was definitely a bridge episode -- but , oh what a bridge. Granted there wasn't a giant smoke monster tearing up a small militia (or did he...
