Don’t forget about the Lost premier tomorrow night

Because I did.

I didn’t actually forget because I never knew about it. That’s weird. Despite that fact that I would have no reason to turn on ABC while Lost isn’t airing, you would think the particular internets I frequent would be buzzing with Lost premier news.

For those that must be in the know, io9.com has extremely detailed Lost spoilers here, here, here and here.

2008-01-30-hurley-lostTV Guide’s Michael Ausiello has some updates on the premier and a few minor spoilers. He also says the writer’s strike might be over with an announcement as early as tomorrow.

Is it just me, or have you all enjoyed this break from TV? I started to realize how little I actually enjoyed some of the shows I was watching (Prison Break), and have been able to let them go. I feel like a contrived, poorly planned, monotonous burden has been lifted from my shoulders.

It will be nice to see the writers getting back to work and the watchable shows coming back to the air. I hope the industry reemerges stronger and smarter because of this ordeal.

I wonder what long term effects the strike will have on shows like Lost that already have odd production schedules. Truncated season? 4 mini seasons instead of 3? 4 deaths per episode? Can they resurrect Niki and Paulo and kill them again?

Nostalgia Side Note:

I started Hijinks Ensue last May with the idea of making fun of geek culture, especially TV. Lost was one of the first shows I tackled. Check out those early efforts here, here, and here.

  1. Whoa man you just freaked me out! Lost is on Thursdays now. You have to wait one more day, bummer I know.

    I think tonite they are showing the finale from season 3.

    • Dont get me started. I loved this show when it had a premise. The first break out was pretty great TV. The man hunt even had its moments but it got spread too thin.

      The 2nd imprisoning made me recall what I said when I first heard about the show, “Do they go back to jail every season?!”

      I guess I was right. This insane, lawless, dirt floor prison is the safest place they’ve ever been. There is basically no threat of harm compared to the regular prison or the real world. I stopped watching about 4 eps ago. Let me know if it gets better.

      Next season spoiler: Moon Prison.

      • Jesus. If you bitch that much when you DON’T get started, I’d hate to hear you if you DO get started.

        😛

        I hear ya, and had similar issues, but I really like the cast and it’s picked up lately.

  2. Yeah my husband was all excited for Lost tonight…until I crushed him with the info about the move to Thursdays. Oh well, we need to re-watch that mindfuck of an episode anyway. 8 months is a long time.

    • Using Lost-ish time travel, I am watching the premier now but responding to your comment from two days ago! Also Im dead. And Im Walt.
