You know, last year Damon Lindelof suggested that ABC might bring back Lost in one form or another. But he wouldn’t have anything to do with it.

I think this sounds like an excellent proposition. What if someone would try to make a proper version of Lost, logical and with a proper ending?

This is what I’m going to hope for from now on!

Actually, to take things a little further, in some 20 years or so, I suspect that our computers are going to be able to produce whatever shows and movies we want to see without too much involvement of short-sighted, commericial networks. Hooray! 🙂

Another idea… we could create a chain story: written collectively by us. Take a list of who would be interested in writing new mini-episodes/chapters in the Lost world, and then the submission order. For instance, Admin could get us kicked off, and then Bob, A.E.S., Wolfx, etc., and onwards through the list of interested partipants… each of us writing a section (e.g. mini-episode) that is “handed off” from the previous chapter/mini-episode. Perhaps one every two weeks (or maybe one per month, depending on schedules). This way all are involved… length could be up to the writer, it just has to have a beginning and an end that the next writer can pick up from. And of course elements of the mysterious Lost world…

So, just throwing it out there, I’d be willing to do it if we got interest…
Not sure where we would start off… that could be discussed. Is it 30 years later, and Richard is a Catholic priest? For some inexplicable reason he suddenly feels compelled to return to the island? Or perhaps Aaron, now a grown man, having recently been told the truth of his birth by Claire, sets out on a journey to find this mysterious island, to which he is drawn? Coincidences abound… Or it could be something from the past…. anything, really. The first writer would kick it off and we’d go from there.

Thoughts?

Hey everyone!

Thank you to everyone who still visits, and who still contributes to the site (you know who you are). It’s been 15 months since the finale and I’m still stunned by the amount of visitors this site still gets. You rock!

I had an idea though, something to maybe get the site more active. Does anyone fancy doing a Lost re-watch?

Starting from 22nd September watching one episode a week, then coming to the site to discuss the episode, maybe figure out details we’ve missed etc. We’d have a short break between each season, and over holiday periods etc.

What do you think? Is anyone up for that? I know the finale left some people dissapointed (myself included), but everything up until that point was amazing. Even though after the finale I thought I’d never watch it again, I can’t help but miss it.

If you’re interested, leave a comment 🙂

Namaste x

Wow, look at the hustle and bustle of activity here. Hello there Bob. It appears as though you are the only consistent poster here, I come back and check every so often to see if there is anything new.

1) I have begun re-watching season 6 this week.
2) I was/am one of those people who was disappointed in the finale, and the lack of answers provided (to the questions that most interested me.)
3) I believe I liked the time travel aspect and the island mysteries the most.

So as I am watching the episodes I still can’t shake one specific idea or topic about these characters or this show.

Reincarnation. It also bothers me that there probably will never be an answer or resolution to this either but…

So I have had the idea that the characters have always been intertwined and that there was something more there, I believe I may have even created threads in the past about it, or posted to those threads.

One thing that has stuck with me, well everything has, I have watched the damned series like 5x, was that book Jacob was carrying upon touching Locke, something like ‘Everything that Rises must Converge.’ I always imagined this as something, a spirit, aura, person floating upwards towards a conical peak where everyone converges. I never thought out if it was a spiral towards the top, or timelines or whatever, that part wasn’t important. It was more like, all of these reincarnations of people are now meeting near the top, the island, to protect it, destroy it, leave it.

And we have the Rainier-Canton van clue…

Anyways, I think the characters we know are simply reincarnations, or different versions. Perhaps this is how the numbers come into play, another time and discussion maybe. But to be brief and to the point here is what I think:

I think if you look at the characteristics of the people, what they stand for, you can see similarities between them. I also think there are slight physical similarities too but that is not what I base this on, but it helps.

Sayid and Desmond – both have long lost loves that they are almost constantly striving to re-connect with.

Kate, Ilana, and perhaps Juliet – strong independent women, self sufficient.

Walt and Michael (together) and Ben and Roger (together)- both boys were shot by people, both fathers struggled to protect/raise their children.

Claire and Rousseau – babies taken away from each, left alone on the island.

Sawyer and Lapidus – outspoken, strong willed, kind of sarcastic.

I think the list and comparisons could go on and on, Dogen and Jack for example. So there it is, the first theory in a while, let me know what you think. Bob T. Maybe list examples of similarities between characters that you see.

Christian? Richard?

The “Man In Black” is the latest casting addition to the FX Network series, based on the Eisner Award winning comic book series Powers by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming.

The series follows Detective Christian Walker, who was once a hero who has since lost his extraordinary abilities.

The title is creator owned by artist Michael Avon Oeming and writer Brian Michael Bendis, who is widely known for his work in the mainstream Marvel Universe. The pilot will be produced by Sony and F/X with Karen Barragan (Rescue Me) on to co-produce. Justified’s Michael Dinner is expected to direct a script written by Charles Eglee (Dexter; The Walking Dead) who will both serve as executive producers as well.

Welliver joins as Triphammer, described “a genius and a narcissist,” and a mixture of Steve Jobs and Donald Trump. Triphammer is said to be a genius in his own right who has invented technology capable of giving or taking away super powers. It’s reported that if the pilot is picked up by the network that the role will recurring.

If you’re missing Ben, Hurley and Richard. Fear not! For they will soon be on our screens again! Albeit in three different shows.

Michael Emerson will be appearing in Person of Interest. The show is rumoured to debut on 22nd September 2011 (coincidence?). Mr. Finch (Michael Emerson) is a mysterious billionaire who has developed a computer program that predicts future crime victims. Finch hires Reese (Jim Caviezel), a former CIA agent presumed to be dead, to help stop those crimes, using Finch’s resources and tech savvy and Reese’s skills and knowledge.

Jorge Garcia will be appearing in Alcatraz. It is currently planned as a midseason replacement to air on Mondays at 9 pm in 2012 (according to Wikipedia). Alcatraz follows Rebecca Madsen, a police officer (Sarah Jones), and Dr. Diego Soto (Jorge Garcia), a “hippy geek” who is the world’s foremost expert on Alcatraz. Both will investigate the reappearance of 302 wardens and prisoners of Alcatraz in modern day, after their mysterious disappearance fifty years ago.

Nestor Carbonell will be appearing in Ringer. It will premiere on 13th September 2011.Twin sisters Bridget and Siobhan (Sarah Michelle Gellar) have been at odds and find that their lives are both unraveling at the same rate. Bridget is on the run from the mob and in order to survive she takes over Siobhan’s life after she mysteriously disappears. She soon discovers her estranged sister’s life isn’t as mundane as she had once thought. Nestor Carbonell plays Victor Machado, an FBI agent whose job it is to keep Bridget safe.

Terry O’Quinn will also be appearing in season two of Hawaii 5-0 with former Lost star Daniel Dae Kim!

Are you looking forward to seeing them on screen again?

Welcome to another J.J. Abrams-produced mystery island show. Alcatraz was one of several new TV series premiered at San Diego Comic-Con Wednesday night, and it was by far the standout.

The series centers around a mysterious event in 1963 that made 302 Alcatraz prisoners and guards vanish without any explanation. For some reason we don’t yet know, a prisoner named Jack Sylvane (Jeffrey Pierce) appears in present day Alcatraz and makes his way to San Francisco to seek payback from those who’ve done him wrong. It’s up to a spunky young police officer (Sarah Jones), assisted by a geeky Alcatraz expert (Jorge Garcia), to stop Sylvane, all the while dealing with a mysterious federal agent (Sam Neill) who clearly knows more about the Alcatraz disappearances than he lets on.

Alcatraz shares elements of other Abrams-produced shows like Lost and Fringe, and it’s also reminiscent of the under-appreciated USA show The 4400. But the show does more than just retread familiar territory. By the end of the pilot episode the Comic-Con audience was clearly wanting more from yet another J.J. Abrams mystery box.

The pilot for FOX’s new J.J. Abrams/Elizabeth Sarnoff (Lost) series Alcatraz screened at the San Diego Comic-Con in Ballroom 20 on Wednesday night and there was no way that IGN wasn’t going to stop by to check out what could be the newest “new Lost” series since the last time they tried to make a “new Lost” series.

Alcatraz is good, but not great. The episode doesn’t really pick up until the last third, and the rest of it, unfortunately, is spent showing us what we already know the premise to be. We know the show is about a group of prisoners that mysteriously vanished from Alcatraz 50 years ago so some of the suspenseful scenes — most specifically the opening scene — don’t have that much “umph” because it’s all stuff we knew heading into the show. After the initial flashback to The Rock and the discovery of a bunch of empty prison cells, we then follow Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones) and Diego Soto (Jorge Garcia) as they investigate the death of a former federal agent. Sam Neill then steps in as a blunt, crotchety FBI agent with the very “FBI Agent” name, Emerson Hauser.

What would it be like if there were another Earth? Would the “you” on that planet be the same you on this planet? Would your life have been the same? These are all questions that the high concept film ANOTHER EARTH poses, but — sadly — never answers.

Rhoda Williams (Brit Marling) is a brainy young New Englander, recently accepted into MIT’s astrophysics program. Distracted (and drunk) while driving one night, she causes a terrible accident that kills the entire family of a celebrated music composer, John Burroughs (William Mapother) and leaves the man in a coma. The distraction is crucial as it sets up the film’s “B story.” She was gazing out her window at a blue object in space. It seems astronomers had just discovered another planet previously hidden behind the sun. During her four years in prison, further scientific inquiry reveals this planet is a duplicate Earth, and it’s growing closer. The possibility of a parallel reality is imminent.

If there is a bright spot in ANOTHER EARTH, it’s actress and co-writer Brit Marling’s phenomenal performance. Even when the scenes lag, she is what keeps you tethered to the story. Her character drives the film and she has a powerful screen presence. However, putting William Mapother (LOST) as the romantic male lead is a bit of a casting misfire. Where he is supposed to be soft, there’s a twinge of the sinister instead. There’s a scene in which John takes Rhoda to an empty auditorium and instead of playing the saw (yes, you read that right), I totally thought he was going to hack her up into tiny pieces with it (he did not).

Terry O’Quinn is going baaaack to the island.

In what marks the most high-profile Lost reunion since the ABC phenom signed off last year, O’Quinn is joining the cast of CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 in a pivotal recurring role.

The gig not only brings the Emmy winner back to the Aloha State, but it reunites him with Lost castmate and Five-0 regular Daniel Dae Kim.

O’Quinn will play a Navy Seal Lt. Commander who trained Alex O’Loughlin’s McGarrett in Coronado, and served with his father in Vietnam. Described as strong, stubborn and a man you want in your corner when things go south, the character holds some of the answers to the mysteries surrounding the respective murders of McGarrett’s mother and father.

O’Quinn recently shot a starring role in the Marc Cherry-produced ABC pilot Hallelujah, but the drama failed to land a spot on the network’s fall schedule.

The MuchMusic Awards were chock full of hotness this weekend, but perhaps the hottest of the hot were Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev who showed up on the event’s red carpet hand-in-hand!

From the moment they arrived, Ian wasted no time doting on his darling. When asked who he would most like to see, he responded coolly, “Nina Dobrev” — and the crowd (continued) to go wild. (FYI, Nina said she was most excited for Disney star Selena Gomez. Sorry, Ian!)

Peter Jackson announced today on Facebook that Evangeline Lilly (“LOST”) has joined the cast of “The Hobbit” films! Here is his post:

“Yikes! I can finally get back to some postings! We’ve finished our first block of shooting and moved straight into location scouting. More on that soon… But today, I’m thrilled to announce new cast members who will be joining us for our second block of shooting.

Evangeline Lilly will be playing a new character–the Woodland Elf, Tauriel. Her name means ‘daughter of Mirkwood’ and, beyond that, we must leave you guessing! (No, there is no romantic connection to Legolas.) What is not a secret is how talented and compelling an actress Evangeline is; we are thrilled and excited she will be the one to bring our first true Sylvan Elf to life.”

Harold Perrineau joined the ensemble cast for the indie drama titled Sexy Evil Genius – a cast that includes Seth Green, Michelle Trachtenberg, Katee Sackhoff, and Billy Baldwin.

Directed by Shawn Piller (his directorial debut), Sexy Evil Genius centers on “an eclectic group of strangers who are invited to a downtown Los Angeles bar by Nikki (Sackhoff), a mutual ex-lover and possibly insane young woman who’s recently gotten out of prison for murdering her last ex-boyfriend. After Nikki arrives with her latest lover and fiancée, the morally-challenged lawyer who’s been handling her case, her current and former lovers soon realize they’re all caught in one of her brilliant, mischievous mind-games that may have deadly consequences.”

No info available on what character Perrineau plays in this; likely one of “Nikki’s” former loves.

In the year since Lost, Matthew Fox has understandably opted mostly to take a break from any big projects. He starred in a London production of Neil LaBute’s new play In a Forest, Dark and Deep opposite Olivia Williams. But now the actor is kick-starting the next phase of his career. Along with signing onto the Tyler Perry-starring reboot of the Alex Cross franchise (in which he’ll play a villain), EW has confirmed that Fox is currently in talks to take a role in World War Z, the adaptation of the Max Brooks zombie-novel sensation (which is set to star Brad Pitt).

Fox has achieved enviable success on television, with two iconic roles spread across two decades – Charlie Salinger on Party of Five, then Jack on Lost – but success on the big screen has generally eluded him, with supporting roles in middling movies like We Are Marshall and Vantage Point. (He was fortunate enough to be wearing a mask for most of Speed Racer.) Both of these films seem like smart choices for the actor – and they’re also very different material from the melancholy-heroic tone he usually struck on Lost.

Lost’s Jacob is coming to the aid of The Closer. Actor Mark Pellegrino, who also played Supernatural’s Lucifer, will recur on the TNT series beginning in mid-August.

Pellegrino will play Brenda’s high-powered defense attorney Gavin Baker, described by executive producer James Duff as “brisk, gay and formidable. He is ruthless in court and still manages to project an air of friendly professionalism.”

Mark’s character specializes in defending police officers in civil actions. Brenda will require his help after she is sued by the family of a gang member she placed in harm’s way. “Though he is easy to like, Gavin is extremely dangerous to underestimate,” Duff adds. “He is the only person on earth who can make Brenda hang up her cell phone.”
