When thinking about my favorite moments on LOST my mind searches for those occurrences that LOST became so known for: the mind f*cks. As LOST grew older, it’s bag of tricks became shallower and just about any fan will tell you that the majority of the “Oh WOW!” moments belong to season one. I think the reason for this is the fact that season one has the most ‘revelations’ about characters that we don’t yet know.
In the case of John Locke, learning that he was paralyzed below the waist
Few moments in LOST history heightened the level of mystery as much as the discovery of “The Hatch” in Episode 11 of Season One in the episode “All The Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues”. The episode, written by Javier Grillo-Marxuach and directed by Stephen Williams, was a Jack Centric episode but the discovery of a mystery doorway to the island itself stole the show.
The possibilities for that hatch seemed endless. Was the island some kind of machine? Did a control room lay beyond? Was
Carlton has become downright prolific since LOST ended. After taking six months off to recharge his batteries, he went straight to work on building his repertoire, which now includes four shows (Bates Motel, The Returned, The Strain, and the upcoming Colony). His impressive output has drawn praise from some pretty huge contemporaries, Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) is quotes as saying “He’s smarter than the rest of us.” in the piece.

LOST fans, I am giving away a giant prize package of Lost memorabilia to support The Trevor Project.

Our good friend Jopinionated has published a guide to all of the LOST-centric offerings at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Check it out here!
Even though there is not going to be an official panel at Comic-Con this week, there are plenty of opportunities for fans to interact with and attend panels featuring former cast and crew.
Congrats to LOST for snaring many well deserved Emmy nominations! The fact that “The End” received numerous noteworthy noms (directing, writing, music, and guest star for Elizabeth Mitchell to name a few) will surely reactivate the mixed emotions amongst the fans. What do you think? Were there other episodes more deserving of a nom, or – in the style of Mad Men – multiple noms in the same category? Personally, I’m astonished that Eddy and Adam weren’t nominated for Dr.

What should be the last word on LOST? Cheesy? Lame? Cliched? Cheap? Vapid? Insulting? All good options, but I think there’s really only one word that ends up describing what LOST became in the end. Stupid.
I’m not trying to be smug, but I predicted it would turn out like this. I knew it. I think we all did. It didn’t happen all at once, but gradually the sloppiness a
No, it does not involve freighters OR smoke. Check it out.
A greedy, evil corporation has unwittingly created a natural disaster the likes of which the world has never seen. Protocols were ignored. Warnings were unheeded. And none of the damn eggheads in Washington can seem to come up with a way to stop millions of barrels of crude from pumping into the goddamned Gulf, threatening our Americanism!
