Hope everyone is finding ways to fill the LOST VOID as it continues its 13 week hiatus. My medicine is currently in the form of 24 which opened up this week with a "BANG!" (no pun intended)
Anyways, thought I'd share some potentially GOOD NEWS with everyone. Apparently the producers and ABC are working rigorously on determining an END DATE for LOST. Clearly there is some concern building across the nation (and apparently inside the writer's room) about the show spiraling out of control conceptually unless the producers and writers can work towards a specific date. Makes sense. They are always saying they are balancing the fact that they know how they want to END the show with the fact that they don't know how long the show is going to be on. How can you start answering major questions and killing off major characters if ABC is going to force the producers to keep the show on for 10 seasons? It seems clear to me that the show will definitely be stale after 10 years. It seems like it's going stale now. And you can clearly see the writers "stalling" a bit (6 episodes of captivity for 3 of our main characters? Intriguing isnt it??)
Anyway, it looks like we'll be able to look forward to some more information on this as time goes on. Producers have always said 5 seasons would be ideal for LOST. I'd expect them to compromise with ABC for something longer. We'll see!
Other good news. Now that ABC has some more successful shows throughout their schedule, it looks like season 4 will definitely run non-stop in either the Fall or the Spring. For blog writing purposes...let's pray for the fall! Although, I think I'd personally prefer it in the Spring. lol

See everyone back here in a few weeks for Episode 7! (Don't forget LOST will air wednesdays at 10pm EST when it returns!)
(until then start watching that ridiculous guilty pleasure show we know as American Idol and try and figure out why I keep watching it and writing about it even though it drives me crazy!)
