Lost Time Travel: Time is a two-by-four... The Rules have now been mentioned on LOST enough in the first 3 episodes of season 5 for it to be obvious that the producers really want us to understand what this means. However, the very nature of time travel is rarely easy to understand and with the words 'time loop' and 'paradox' popping up in discussion forums across the web, its time for for a LOST Time Travel 101 class. We'll start with the analogy of...'Lost is like a two-by-four...' Read more

OUR PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED - LOST Series Premiere Set for Wednesday, January 21, 2009 - Be There, Or Be Somewhere Else!!!
Lost Gets a Premiere Date!
Los Angeles – Our prayers have been answered! ABC has just confirmed that Lost has received an official premiere date for season five, and even better, it's a smidgen earlier than expected. On Wednesday, Jan. 21, Lost returns with a three-hour (you heard me, three-hour!) premiere. "Because You Left" and "The Lie" will air back-to-back, following a recap of the first four seasons (for the very few people who aren't already addicted and/or obsessed). So what does this mean for ABC's Wednesday-night lineup? After the Lost extravaganza premiere, the series will continue on Wednesday nights at 9. Reps at ABC have told me that a decision on new time slots for Private Practice and possibly Pushing Daisies (pleeease?) will be announced next week. Episodes three through six are as follows: "Jughead," "The Little Prince," "The Place Is Death" and "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham." This news comes on the heels of the casting scoop from earlier today about the part of a Lost man's lover.
I know you usually do the news articles on the main page and blog and wondered if you heard about Jack Bender's new project. ABC has him directing the pilot of a new show called "The Prince of Motor City". It's not filming in HI, and I haven't seen anything about how this may affect his role with Lost, but I wanted to pass on the article.  --Gluphokquen Gunih ▲ 17:16, 23 May 2008 (PDT)

Stage set for Cuse
The goal for Carlton Cuse and co-showrunner Damon Lindelof is to produce five more episodes this season, a tall order given the time constraints and the scope of storytelling and production on "Lost." Even with five additional hours, Cuse and Lindelof will be three episodes short of the premapped fourth season.

Will 'Lost' Make Monday the Best Night on TV? Lost remains in “radio silence,” but that does not mean that the rumor mill has slowed down. The latest, and perhaps most provocative rumor to surface concerning ABC's island mystery is that a time slot has finely been eyeballed for the show. Fans famously kvetched about the later 10pm est slot Lost took during the final leg of its third season. Ever the fan pleasers, ABC's execs and Lost creators alike have given subtle hints to addressing the concerns of the disgruntled masses. If this latest rumble proves true, it could lead to the creation of a television “super night.” read more

"Mourning TV" - Lindelof reflects on the writers' strike Lost executive producer and co-creator Damon Lindelof wrote an op-ed piece in the New York Times entitled "Mourning TV," reflecting on the writers' strike and the sad truth, according to him, that "Television is dying."
Lindelof writes, "I will probably be dragged through the streets and burned in effigy if fans have to wait another year for “Lost” to come back. And who could blame them? Public sentiment may have swung toward the guild for now, but once the viewing audience has spent a month or so subsisting on “America’s Next Hottest Cop” and “Celebrity Eating Contest,” I have little doubt that the tide will turn against us. Which brings me to the second stage of grief: anger.
"I am angry because I am accused of being greedy by studios that are being greedy. I am angry because my greed is fair and reasonable: if money is made off of my product through the Internet, then I am entitled to a small piece. The studios’ greed, on the other hand, is hidden behind cynical, disingenuous claims that they make nothing on the Web — that the streaming and downloading of our shows is purely “promotional.” Seriously?"

Hiatuses for serialized shows a ‘Lost’ cause ABC just decided that broadcasting a few episodes of "Lost's" upcoming fourth season is better than no "Lost" at all. But as anyone who sat through last season's excruciating first six episodes knows, that's just not true.
"Lost" has completed only eight episodes of its new season, and the network is refusing to follow FOX's example and hold off on airing the first set of episodes. It's the wrong move. "Lost" can't afford to lose any more momentum. But it's wrong for another reason: "Lost" showrunner Damon Lindelof says those first episodes aren't any good.
Interviewed on the picket lines, he told E! Online that he thinks the show will follow a similar course as last year: "When you are doing 24 straight episodes of a show, the first six episodes are a lot of tap dancing and some writers are able to tap-dance very effectively. Cable writers don't have to tap-dance at all, which is why all their shows are so great." Read more

Daniel Dae Kim gets Lost in translation
He stars on Channel 7's hit drama, Lost, but Daniel Dae Kim did a great impression of Bill Murray during a Lost In Translation-style moment on Australian The Morning Show yesterday. After sampling local delights like Vegemite and lamingtons, Kim tried out his own knowledge of the lingo, telling Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies about the only Aussie phrase he knew: "having your poo in the one sock." The bizarre saying clearly shocked his hosts, with Emdur breaking it to Kim that his source had perhaps taken another toilet reference out of him by setting him up to say it on national TV. Read more
