Ready to Get 'Lost'?
I thought I'd hold off on posting about "Lost" until Thursday morning so we could kick off the season-long conversation actually having some new information with which to work.
But, duh, wouldn't it be much more practical to spend the next 60 hours or so swapping speculation, rumors and predictions about the coming season? Absolutely. All we officially know about Wednesday night's episode is its title "A Tale of Two Cities" and, from an ABC press release, that "Jack, Kate and Sawyer begin to discover what they are up against as prisoners of 'The Others.'"
The rest is, as they say, a big ol' cliffhanger. Did Mr. Eko and Locke survive the exploding hatch? What about Desmond -- did he save the island or set the castaways on a collision course with the Others? Will Michael and Walt really leave or will Michael's conscience get the better of him and, ooh, will they come across Sun and Jin out on the water? What will Hurley tell the gang when he returns solo? Will we see more of the Russian scientists? What will Sawyer's first quaint bon mot be?
So many questions, so little time. To get the creative juices (aka obsessive fan tendencies) out of hibernation, some good links:
Entertainment Weekly's Viewer Guide
If you don't subscribe to EW, you missed last week's handy pullout guide to "Lost." The vital information from this little nugget, such as how Kate's dad is connected to Sayid or how Desmond's fiance's dad is connected to Sun, is thankfully reproduced online. A must read.
The J.J. Abrams-sanctioned message board for show devotees and arm-chair conspiracists.
Built on the Wikipedia model, this site aspires to one day grow into a clearinghouse for information on the show, cast and anything even remotely related to either.
ABC's Official Lost site
If you want officially-sanctioned recaps and more goofy tie-ins (ringtones, podcasts, magazines, merchandise, games) than you can shake Eko's stick at, this is the place.
Television Without Pity
For excellent fan-generated show recaps, bookmark now.
Okay, now that we've got the tools to get the job done, let the prognosticating begin. Anyone else think the Others are aliens? No? Me either. Maybe.
P.S. Apologies to non-"Lost" fans. While we do this, please visit the Eye on Entertainment photo gallery.
