LOST: Final Season Premiere Date Set!!!

Well my fellow LOSTIES, we've seen Wednesday as the home for LOST for much of the show's run.  During the strike-ridden season, we moved to Thursdays in a cushy slot after Grey's Anatomy.  And now?  LOST will travel to the most competitive day in the Winter/Spring months.  Yes, it's Ellen and Simon vs. Jacob and Jack!   LOST moves to Tuesdays!   The 3 hour premiere event will take place on Tuesday February 2nd, 2009.  (8:00 Eastern Time - 1st hour a recap show followed by the 2 hour premiere entitled "LA X" at 9:00pm Eastern Time).  The regular time slot will be at 9:00pm as well. On paper?  Awesome!  Pair up the 2 Sci-Fi shows of V and LOST and give the geeks their day!   But for bloggers like me?  This is going to be the apocalypse!   Clearly, LOST is my top concern when it comes to blogging, but I do have a soft spot for Idol and feel the need to bash the upcoming season with their newly crowned celebrity judge.   Since this news is just breaking now, I don't have it all figured out.  But I will!   If Idol has to suffer shorter blogs this season, then so be it!   This is a time for celebration, the show that has defied all formulas and defined a new generation of TV is entering its final season.  And we now we know when "The Beginning of the End" will occur!

How does everyone else feel about LOST on Tuesdays?  Are we ready for it?!

Updated Videos:

Hey Mike.

Still on my watch through, Season 5 half way. Your blog is pretty rad.

I think we need a blog post about mid Jan to the effect "Questions we need answers for."

I have a question now, the Numbers. I seem to see there is some explanation of them, The V... Equation?

Now this explanation was never in the shjow was is, more in the Online content? I think there should be a season 6 ep. on this (unless I am missing something).

Re: This post, I voted, but since I am in Australia it doesn't mean much. Just that I will DL it earlier - think its on pretty late these days downunder. But, You didn't leave me a donkey vote option in the poll. ;-)

Lets not get me started about donkey's and wheels (biggest cringe worthy scene in Lost all up)

Later

Chris

Mike V. said...

Donkey Vote eh?? lol Hey I liked the donkey wheel!

Anyway, thanks for the props on the blog Rhino! I believe that Damon Lindelof did mention the numbers will be addressed on the show in season 6, so that's pretty good news!

As for the blog idea in January? Not a bad one at all. I think in my Season 5 finale, I went on a little rambling at the end of some mysteries I'd like answered. But, it might be worth Re-Addressing before the final season begins. I'll see what I can do!

And agreed Yencie, I'm not thrilled about the Tuesday thing, but I"ll make it work. Anything for LOST!

Cool Cool. Haven't read to there yet.

Keep it up mate.

Was there any specific reason why the season was pushed out a few weeks other than to fit it into the TV schedule? I'm more disappointed about that then the night change.

Mike V. said...

Probably to have less breaks (or no breaks actually) and starting in February sweeps as a big premiere event! They had discussed taking 2 or 3 weeks off during the olympics so this is actually good news. They wait 2 weeks and run straight through to the may finale. That's my guess at least!

In case anyone was interested, my thoughts on the V fall finale on Gather.com

Watching The Other Woman at the moment...I remember watching it first time round and LOVING Ben's delivery of the line when he tells Juliet that she's his little toy..."How can you not understand...that you're MINE!" Love it!

Mike V. said...

Nice! That was a good one. I'm all caught up on my rewatch and ready for season 5 blu! I could cheat and watch the ones saved on my TiVo but I have to be strong!

New Promo pics - Last Supper

Mike V. said...

Loving the Last Supper Pic. Not as much as Doc Jensen though. lol Not sure why everyone feels it needs to be analyzed! It just is a cool concept! Especially the DHARMA beer at the table!

Stay tuned guys for next week. New blog post as we prepare for the season premiere. I'm thinking 23 Days Until LOST and 23 Mysteries we want resolved! (surely, I can think of 23) Any suggestions from the peanut gallery?

Mike V. said...

Great 2 part interview from today with team darlton. I'm getting excited!!

http://www.thrfeed.com/2010/01/lost-final-season-interview-.html#126273030383630&bestbuy1:309:212

click on part 2 at end of article above! Enjoy!

MJ said...

I'm just curious why there are 2 versions of the Lost Last Supper. Interesting.

I'll have to start thinking of some of the more obscure mysteries I want solved ! LOL

Mike V. said...

Yeah I read somewhere that it could suggest an alternate reality and a reality. I just figured one was actually depicting the Last Supper painting...and the other was just the cast facing the camera! LOL I need to get back into looking TOO much into things again or this year's blogs are going to be boring!!

If you think of any crazy mysteries...let me know!

Mike V. said...

It was on the TV Guide Mega Buzz where I read that Last Supper tidbit:

http://www.tvguide.com/News/MegaBuzz-Lost-Chuck-1013408.aspx

"What do you make of those Lost "Last Supper" pictures? — Landy

MICKEY: First off, let me put on my tin-foil hat so my thoughts can't be read. There, that's better. Let me ask you: Why do you think there are two images? Is ABC just offering us a bit of photographic variety or are the twin images themselves a clue to how things go down in Season 6? Could the skulls indicate impending deaths, albeit in alternate timelines? These are questions worth asking."

Mike V. said...

BTW...also read yesterday on THE ODI site about some minor spoilerish details about episodes 10 and 11 (i.e. Whose centric episodes they are and a set piece we might see again) If you want to know read ahead...if not...don't! :-)

***********************************










Episode 10 - Desmond-centric and we will see Room 23 and Widmore again (interesting that we wouldn't see widmore until ep 10? Maybe that's not what was meant. But I'm definitely excited that Desmond is getting his own episode even if he isn't a full-time cast member this season)

Episode 11 - Jin/Sun Centric




***********************************










See? Not so bad!

MJ said...

Uh-oh! Just read that the Pres will be doing the State of the Union either 1/26 or 2/2 ! That would pre-empt either Idol or Lost for a week. UGH! I don't watch Idol - but I know you do Mike. I will be so pissed if we have to wait an extra week for Lost.

Mike V. said...

Yeah this was all abuzz on Twitter yesterday (you need to get onboard MJ! Lol) SI-LOST and the ODI were discussing it. Before we knew it we were all Twitter trending #nostateofunionfeb2 lol. Then doc jensen tweeted to damon, Carlton and Obama the same. And tv guide caught wind and posted the article. Crazy how Twitter accelerates news items these days!

Anyway I dont give a rat's ass about an idol audition ep!! I want my LOST and I want it when it is scheduled!! I already took off feb 3rd to document the 2 hour episode! I never was a fan but Obama's messing with prime time made me an eternal hater!!

Mike V. said...

New Mr. Cluck's commerical with Hurley...still looking like a RESET...or at least an Alternate Reality! lol Oh, how they tease! Notice that Hurley has had "nothing but luck" since he won the lottery. interesting...

Mike V. said...

Team Darlton confirmed on Twitter...OBAMA has backed down and LOST will rule Groundhog Day! Niiiice. lol

btw...Doc Jensen and Dan Snierson (sp) went to Hawaii and interviewed Terry O'Quinn (locke) and Michael Emerson (ben). Full interview will be in this week's EW. But here's a snippet:

Could lost live on in other forms after may? Abc hopes so. Not sure if I'm excited or scared. But it may mean this site will stay in business! Lol
