Lost Season 5 Premiere Sneak Peeks

If you are one of those that does not want to know anything about anything before Lost begins, then look away.  Because although these are not “spoilers” they could spoil it for the purist watcher.  Here are 5 clips from the upcoming Season 5 premiere episode, which of course you know, airs tomorrow night at 9pm ET.

TV Guide Spills Some Beans on Season 5

Leave it to TV Guide… I never buy print media anymore, but darn it if I am not going to run to WalMart right away to see if I can find this silly magazine. In the upcoming edition, the TV Guide cover story is on all things LOST.  There is some great insight and some whopper spoilers.  I will include a few to tempt you, but if you want to read the whole thing, I will have to see you at WalMart.

White Rabbit – Christian returns. And “the fact that Christian’s wearing white tennis shoes is a mystery that will be answered this season,” Cuse says.

“…”We all don’t succeed” in getting back to the island, teases Yunjin Kim, whose character, Sun, “takes matters into her own hands” in her quest to avenge the death of husband Jin.”

See, I told you there was some good stuff.  See you at the magazine rack.

Sadistic Ben Spills His Secrets

Some guys get all the love. There is just something about Michael Emerson and his character Ben that intrigues and draws the attention of both audiences and press. I have seen more interview with Emerson then any other characters. Maybe it is the sadistic tendencies of Ben, or his deep dark secrets. Whatever it is, another quality Emerson interview has popped up.

Over at the New York Mag, there is a great interview with Emerson. In the piece, there are a few great spoilers about next season and the direction of his alter ego Ben. The article is a bit “spoilerish” but I don’t think it will ruin anyones day if you give a good read. As an English Teacher and writer, the question that popped out to me was:

Ben is often reading or quoting authors. Do you take the time to read the books he does?
There are no accidents in the world of props on Lost—the books are carefully chosen. This season, there’s a scene where I’m reading Ulysses by James Joyce. It’s on my winter reading list.

Hop over to the New York Mag and give the article the once-through; you won’t be disappointed.

Entertainment Weekly Hosts LOST Trivia Challenge

So, you fancy yourself a LOST fan, and you think you know just about all there is to know?  Put yourself up against the best of the best and see how well you do on Entertainment Weekly’s LOST Trivia Game.

At the EW site, you can play a little flash-based trivia game that is based mostly on Season 4 trivia and knowledge.  I didn’t do too bad; I score 32 out of 34.  I am not telling which ones I missed, but the trivia contest is not the easiest one in the world.  If you choose to register, you can place on a leader board and see how the other LOST fans are doing.

See the image below for a small sample of the game.

LOST Is Full of Strange People

And some of the characters are odd too. Have you heard the one about the custody battle over a love-child from a tryst that ended in accusations of poisoning a child and the practice of witchcraft. No, this isn’t a preview of an upcoming LOST episode, but rather the real-life drama that unfolded around Naveen Andews’ (Sayid on LOST) recent court appearance.

Elana Eustache, Naveen’s Baby-Mama took him to court to try to get custody of their 3 year old child. She was accusing Naveen, among other things, of poising the child and dating a witch. That’s right, Eustache was asserting that Barbara Hershey was practicing black magic with the child in the house.

Needless to say the judge dismissed the accusations and ordered psychiatric evaluations on Eustache. With all of that going on, I am sure that Naveen was happy to get back to the LOST set where things are a bit more normal.

LOST Receives Producer of the Year Nomination

LOST has received a nomination for the Norman Felton Producer of the Year Award from the Producers Guild of America.  It is being nominated in the “Episodic Television-Drama” category along with “Boston Legal”, “Damages”, “Dexter”, “Lost” and “Mad Men”.

Dexter I can buy, but the other shows being nominated, in my humble opinion, pale in comparison.  We will have to wait until January 24 to see who the winner is, but I would be shocked if LOST did not take home the prize.

And in a marginally related, but tremendously more interesting note, here is a sneak peek from the LOST premiere.  Don’t watch it if you don’t want a few small spoilers.

Take a Tour with Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse

Here is a top secret glimpse inside of the LOST writer’s studios. It is the latest in the series of “Dharma Special Access“ videos promoting Season 5.  In this episode, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse give a light-hearted tour of Building 23, otherwise known as the LOST writer’s office.

If you have ever wondered where the magic happens, here is the only chance you may get to see it.  I especially liked the dead, living, and undead character organizer.  I know, its not an amazing piece of video, but with the premiere just weeks away, I will take what I can get.

ABC Announces LOST Recap Episode

Did you catch this press release?


ABC is continuing the battle of roping in new viewers five seasons into one of the greatest mysteries ever on television.  On premiere night, before the good stuff begins, ABC will be airing another clip show to catch viewers up and shed some light on the mythology, pathology, and psychology of life on the island.   Chances are this is another “pop-up video” LOST episode, but I don’t mind.  Last season, I actually enjoyed the pop-ups.  They were handy when I missed a few things.

What do you think, are you a fan of the recap shows?


LOST Premiere Preview

If you haven’t had a chance to catch this, here is the official LOST, Season 5 Premiere Preview:

If the video is actually a preview of only the first episode and not the whole season then OMG! there is a ton of amazing stuff packed into a two hour episode.  I can only hope!

Happy LOST Month! Oh Yeah, and Merry New Year

Welcome to January – LOST month. In a mere 21 days (three short weeks) LOST Season 5 airs.  There are some folks out there much luckier than you and me that have already been blessed by watching the premier, and while they are not scooping all of the story, they are issuing some glowing reviews.  Here is a LOST, Season 5 Premier Review Roundup.

The Watcher

“The start of the season premiere was just that nerd-tastic for hardcore Lost fan; it’s full of shout-outs and call-backs to classic Lost moments and trivia.”

Doc Jensen:

“Lost’s tradition of opening the year with a killer, capture-the-imagination sequence is honored and upheld, though the thing I loved most was how it was brazenly frank (and engagingly funny) about the heady high-concept conceit that will define the season.”

Watch with Kristin:

“It’s grandiose, compelling, gaspworthy and, despite what the haters would have you believe, altogether satisfying.”

Well, I have not seen  the LOST premiere, but I am inclined to say that I agree with everyone.  I know it’s a little early and geeky to say that, but hey; I am a fanboy!
