LOST Connections

I know that posts would get pretty boring and repetitive if I listed every old episode of a television show where I saw a LOSTie as a guest star, but I think this one is worth mentioning.

This weekend, I happened to catch Frequency on television. This Dennis Quaid / Jim Caviezel sci-fi movie came out in 2000, and although I didn't start at the beginning, I found it enjoyable. At any rate, the lovely Elizabeth Mitchell co-starred (as a dark-haired nurse / wife of Dennis Quaid's character). For those who haven't seen it, and might care to, I won't spoil the plot, but let's just say Elizabeth's character has scenes with a character called... Jack Shepard!

LOST Stars in Random Roles

I've seen several former LOSTies appearing as guest stars in other programs. I try not to have expectations, because it eases up on the potential disappointment. Last night, I saw Henry Ian Cusick on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and despite having NO expectations, I was a bit disappointed.

Thankfully, it was not in the acting; Ian performed brilliantly. The storyline was frighteningly predictable (as many L&O episodes can be) and I figured the plot twist within the first five minutes after the credits. Additionally, I would have liked a bit of a LOST shoutout (as Jorge Garcia's character did during his appearance in "How I Met Your Mother" recently). I guess not all television writers understand the LOST fan's zeal.

LOSTie Alert!

How did I miss this? Michael Emerson and Terry O'Quinn are to star TOGETHER in a JJ Abrams pilot! This was announced on September 22nd (note the irony). How did I not find out about this until today? The show is currently called "Odd Jobs" and it is rumored that Emerson and O'Quinn will portray former undercover operatives.

Jorge Garcia, who will appear in "How I Met Your Mother" tonight, has also landed a starring role in a JJ Abrams production, "Alcatraz" set, oddly enough, NOT in Alcatraz.

Daniel Dae Kim - Hawaii 50

Jorge Garcia - Alcatraz

Terry O'Quinn - Odd Jobs

Michael Emerson - Odd Jobs

Elizabeth Mitchell - has a movie in the works Answers to Nothing, which looks promising.

Dominic Monaghan - has two movies in post production: Soldiers of Fortune and The Day.

Evangeline Lilly - a movie is in the production: Real Steel with another LOSTie, Kevin Durand. Looks like a real winner (since you can't hear the sarcasm in my font, I refer you to this:

Naveen Andrews - movie Hullo with no release date.

Josh Holloway - has a role in Mission Impossible 4 to be released in December 2011.

Henry Ian Cusick - nothing since two episodes of "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (which coincidentally aired on September 22)

Matthew Fox and Emilie de Ravin - the LOST siblings don't have anything in the works (according to IMDB)

The Event - And Recent Randomness

For those watching "The Event" - feel free to post here. We have it on TiVo, just haven't had a chance to try it yet.

Last night, I was flipping around and came across an episode of "Without a Trace" in which Jacob was holding Keamy hostage. Of course, I had to watch the rest of the episode, even though I really didn't know what was going on. What is funny is that it seemed familiar to me, so I may have done the same thing several years ago - although at the time, I only recognized Kevin Durand, because Mark Pellegrino had not yet appeared on LOST.

More randomness: when I went to IMDB to look up how to spell Mark Pellegrino's name, I discovered that he only appeared in SIX episodes. Sounds crazy, right? I would have guessed it was a lot more. Other six episoders: Anthony Cooper, Roger Linus, Carmen Reyes (all main characters' parents), Zach, Emma and a character named Jason, whom I did not recognize. Looking at LOSTpedia, I see that the actor (Ariston Green) appeared six times, but not always as the same character. I think the IMDB data entry people were getting lazy!

The End - The Post LOST Watch

Wow. Can you even believe we've already rewatched the entire sixth season? Post your thoughts on the series finale.

I guess this is "the end" of life on our little island. Sad. I hope you'll still check in and say hello every now and again.

A Moment of Silence

It was on this day, six years ago, that Oceanic Flight 815 broke up in mid air and crashed, leaving the passengers (who did not perish) in perpetual peril. That same day, a collection of strangers witnessed the beginning of what would become the most compelling and well written show on television. Over the following six years (and 120+ hours of television brilliance), those strangers became friends; friends who discussed character development, celebrated character's triumphs, delighted in plot twists, and debated a variety of theories, from the plausible to the outrageous.

On this day in 2004, we all got LOST.

The Last Recruit - The Post LOST Watch

Okay, so the DVDs are out. Are you catching up? Commenting on the blog? Have you given up? (It kind of feels like it!)

I have to wait until my birthday to get the full series on DVD. I am Netflixing season six in the mean time. Got disk five, because I *had* to see the extras on it. Now I am waiting for disk one so I can start over.

In the meantime, next on the list is The Last Recruit. How will our opinion of the episode change as we see it again?

On a different note, I am completely and utterly devastated that LOST was shut out at the Emmys AGAIN. At least there were nominations, but with the exception of some of the Schmemmys (Kathy Griffin's word for the Creative Arts Emmys) where some Emmys might have been awarded to LOST (and I don't know), it was a complete failure. I mean, I know Mad Men is a great show and everything, but to overlook Emerson and O'Quinn (maybe they sort of canceled each other out?) and the series as well? Oh mylanta. (It doesn't help that Glee, my other favorite show, was passed over by the most part - except for the much-deserving Jane Lynch!)

The one bright light of the Emmys was Jorge's participation in the opening sequence. FanTABulous!

Everybody Loves Hugo - The Post LOST Watch

I do love me some Hurley! How will this episode be more meaningful now that we know the outcome?

The big news of the week, of course, is the season 6 (and full series set) DVDs dropping tomorrow!

Also, the LOST "Profiles in History" auction was this weekend. Big ticket items include the Pilot script, signed by JJ and Damon ($15,000), Hurley's Camaro ($20,000), a DHARMA van ($45,000) and Faraday's journal ($27,500). You can see all the items and their winning bids here: and

This was an amazing, stand alone episode the first time around. It will be interesting to see what new light is shed by our knowledge of the final episodes.

Recon - The Post LOST Watch

We wondered, the first time around, if recon was re-con as in to con again, or recon as in reconnaissance. What else will we see differently in hindsight?

Dr. Linus - The Post LOST Watch

(I'm a bit late on the uptake on this one, sorry. The days seem to run together when company is in town.) How does this episode play differently now that we know how it all comes out?

Sundown - The Post LOST Watch

This time around, we know this isn't a Sun-centric episode. What other previously-missed clues will we notice when we watch this episode again?

Emmy Nods for LOST!

Can LOST book-end the series with an Emmy win for its final season?! LOST picked up an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Drama (along with Breaking Bad, Dexter, Mad Men, True Blood, and The Good Wife). Of these, I have seen The Good Wife. It is a great show, but it is no LOST. What is your opinion of the others?

Matthew Fox was nominated for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series (together with Jon Hamm [Mad Men]; Kyle Chandler [Friday Night Lights]; Bryan Cranston [Breaking Bad]; Hugh Laurie [House M.D.]; and Michael C. Hall [Dexter]). While this was Foxy's best season, where is the love for Josh Holloway? I have seen a few episodes of House over the years, and Hugh Laurie is great - though I find the character mildly two dimensional. Haven't seen any of the other shows. Thoughts?

For Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, both Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson were recognized (along with John Slattery [Mad Men]; Aaron Paul [Breaking Bad]; Martin Short [Damages]; and Andre Braugher [Men of a Certain Age]). As thrilled as I am that O'Quinn and Emerson were nominated, they both deserved to be in the lead actor category. As I understand it, the actors determine which category to which they would like to be submitted. By choosing supporting actor, I suppose they improved their chances. Had they chosen lead actor, it would likely have bumped Foxy from the running, but would have opened the door for Jorge, Daniel and Naveen, who all had stellar years. And what about Nestor and (Henry) Ian? I guess the academy needs a category just for LOST supporting actors. Again, I have only seen one show, Men of a Certain Age. Andre Braugher is great, but I think Emerson ought to have this tied up, if not for this season, than for his entire body of work on LOST.

Surprise, surprise, the women were shut out. I know Elizabeth Mitchell didn't have enough screen time to warrant a nomination, but she still deserves one for the season five finale! Evangeline and Yunjin both had great years, and even Emilie's short screen time was notable.

What are your opinions of these nominations? Who was overlooked? What do you think of the other nominees?

Tillie Rewatch

Okay Tillies, we survived "The End" and are recovering. We've discussed a "rewatch" of the entire series, and of just season 6. By all means, continue to talk about the finale, but let's take an informal poll as well.

Choose from the following and post your answer:

a) I want to rewatch from the beginning of the series

b) I want to rewatch from the beginning of season six

c) I want to rewatch from the beginning of season six and THEN watch from the beginning of the series

d) I don't mind, whatever the group decides

3) I am not interested in rewatching anything as a group.

If you answered a, b, c, or d, then please choose the answer to the next question.

a) I will be able to watch and comment on one episode a week.

b) I will be able to watch and comment on two episodes a week.

c) I don't mind how many episodes, whatever the group decides.

d) I won't be able to stop at just one or two episodes, but I will comment on the episodes as the group decides.

Thanks, Tillies!

Happy Birthday Tillies!

Today marks the second anniversary of the day we created the little island! It feels like much longer than that! How far we've come! Think of it... two years ago, Charlie died, and I stayed in denial for almost two years. LOL.

Happy Birthday, Tillies!

The End

All I can say is that it was very difficult to type the title of this week's episode and post.

It has been a great ride for sure. To everyone who ever had anything to do with my LOST experience, Tillies most especially, I thank you.

What They Died For

This, the penultimate episode of the series, has one of the first titles which seems fairly straightforward. This, of course, means that it could be misleading, but I suspect not.

May the deep breathing begin...

Across the Sea

The first thing that jumps to my mind is the song that Shannon translated from the map that Sayid stole from Rousseau. The English translation of the song is "Beyond the Sea" though in the French, neither "across" nor "beyond" appear in the lyrics.

"Across the Sea" is also a song by someone named Weezer. Lyrics don't appear to be important.

Across the Sea of Suns is a science fiction book written by Gregory Benford, and published in 1984. The plot summary seems a bit remote, except for this intriguing piece:
In 2061, it arrives and discovers a primitive biological race of nomads broadcasting en-masse with organs adapted to emit and receive electromagnetic radiation; their transmissions were blurred by various nomads falling out of synch with the rest. Close up, the transmission is discovered to be an old radio show from the 1950s - the signal the EMs (as they are called) consider best to reply to Earth with.

Most likely, it refers to a "meanwhile, back on the mainland" kind of scenario. What do YOU think?

Monday, May 3, 2010

The Candidate

Five hours
~~~~~Four episodes
~~~~~~~~~~Three Tuesday nights
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Two hour season finale on
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~One Sunday night we won't forget

It is difficult to predict what the hour will entail, except that like the past few episodes, it will give us more answers.

The Last Recruit

With the "centric" episodes behind us (I believe), the reference in the title leaves the net wide open. Will this refer to Widmore's last recruit? MIB's? Jacob's? Mystery Boy's?

The countdown to the end is creeping up on is. After this episode, we have only three hours before the finale. Daniel Dae Kim posted to Facebook that LOST has "wrapped" which means filming is done. Honestly, I am starting to panic. Breathe in, breathe out. Breathe in, breathe out.

Breathe in.

Breathe out.

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Everybody Loves Hugo

Three guesses as to which character is the central focus in this episode!

I love Hurley and am excited to see this one. Will Libby be part of Hurley's FSW? Does Hurley play the same numbers in the lottery, and if not, where did he get the numbers and what are they? Might 51 (Kate) be one of the numbers now, and perhaps NOT 4 (Locke) or 16 (Jarrah)?

Can't wait!

Monday, April 5, 2010

Happily Ever After

Sounds like a fairy tale, doesn't it? But every fairy tale has its villain, a hero, a damsel in distress. What will our LOST fairy tale be about?

By my calculations, we are due for a Hurley episode. Unless Jacob and MiB will have one, or Miles or Frank. I vote for it being the Hurley show!

After this, there are only five more hours until the finale. Yikes!

Monday, March 29, 2010

The Package

This episode title leaves WIDE open the possibilities for a clue, but looking at the main cast, and seeing who HASN'T had a centric episode, I am thinking we can narrow it down.

Could it be Hurley - and his guitar case is the package?
Could it be Jin - and the watch is the package?
Could Miles be finally getting a centric episode and the package is a body?
Could Frank be finally getting a centric episode and the package is on the plane?
Could the package refer to the cargo in the locked room on the sub?

My guess is for a Sun and Jin episode, but I will be thrilled no matter what.

I read that Yunjin Kim got married in Hawaii yesterday. It made me realize that they are probably finishing up filming for the finale. Bittersweet indeed. Congrats to Yunjin though!

Ab Aeterno

The translation (from Latin) of Ab Aeterno is "from the beginning of time" or from wiki: Literally, "from the everlasting" or "from eternity". Thus, "from time immemorial", "since the beginning of time" or "from an infinitely remote time in the past". In theology, often indicates something, such as the universe, that was created outside of time.

Does anyone else think this might be the Richard Alpert-centric episode we've been promised since Season 3? O gauisus dies! (Oh happy day!)

Monday, March 15, 2010


Well now, here is a title with some possible options.

"Recon" as in reconnaissance(from Wiki):(literately French "recognition" • from Middle French reconoissance; Old French reconoistre; "-to recognize"), is a military term denoting a preliminary survey; especially: an exploratory military survey (also scouting) conducted to gain, or collect information.

or (and I think this is more likely)

"Recon" as in re-con, to con again (from The Free Dictionary): To swindle (a victim) by first winning his or her confidence; dupe.

Does anyone else expect this to be perhaps, a Sawyer-centric episode?

Monday, March 8, 2010

Dr. Linus

Well, gees, I am not sure I should automatically ASSUME that this is Ben-centric episode after last week's Sundown bait and switch. I heard that this was an Emerson-heavy episode, which honestly thrills me. Give me an O'Quinn or Emerson heavy episode (or better, BOTH), throw in some Garcia for giggles, and it is nearly guaranteed to be awesome.

Monday, March 1, 2010


If we are continuing to follow the season one pattern for episodes, we should have a Sun-centric episode this week. That fits with the title! Last week's episode may have been figurative, but it was also very literal. Any ideas for what this week's title might mean?

(And yes, I am looking forward to the potential Charlie-centric episode next week!)

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

The Lighthouse

Hmmm. The Lighthouse. Not sure what to think on this one. If season six continues to follow the season one pattern with episodes, then this should be a Jack centric episode (to go along with "White Rabbit"). Or could this be more literal - a lighthouse, a light weight house, a house filled with light? As usual, I am just LOST.

Monday, February 15, 2010

The Substitute

What comes to mind when you read that title? My thoughts jump to Sayid and Season 5's "He's Our You." But could we also be talking about Locke as a substitute for MIB? Claire as a substitute for Rousseau?

If the idea that Season 6 is following a similar pattern to the first season, then we are due for a Locke centric episode. The "mirror" episode in Season 1 was "Walkabout."

Having LOST on Tuesdays makes the beginning of the week go quickly, but the rest of the week just drags and drags. Plus, all day Wednesday, I keep THINKING it is Thursday and I don't like feeling all confuzzled!

Monday, February 8, 2010

What Kate Does

Now that we are entering the redux stage of our programming, are we going to see Kate's adjusted reality in flashbacks? In "What Kate Did" we saw Kate, in flashbacks, killing her father (whom she thought was her step-father), being arrested, being "saved" by the black horse, and escaping Edward Mars, and visiting the her (step)father at his recruiting station. How has the "incident" affected these events?

Interestingly, "What Kate Did" is also the episode where Mr. Eko says, "Do not mistake coincidence for fate."

Things that make you go HMMMM.

Tuesday, February 2, 2010


After far too long a wait, LOST returns tonight with the final season premiere entitled LA X. The anticipation has been growing and I am almost to a point where I do not believe it could POSSIBLY meet expectations. There are fifteen episodes, totaling eighteen hours (not including clip shows and recaps) until the end of the LOST era.

Among the many questions that fans want answered...
... who is Ilana and how does she relate to Richard / Ricardus?
... when and how will "dead" characters return?
... is Eloise Hawking biologically related to Daniel Faraday?
... will Sun be reunited with Jin?
... will Claire be reunited with Aaron?
... who is MIB?
... what is next for Kate?
... did Juliet die?
... will Jack find his destiny?
... will Sawyer spend the first six episodes shirtless again?

Make a list of the questions YOU want answered in the next eighteen hours and post them as a comment!
