I'm Alive!

Barely. One paper down, only like three to go. Then my defense. I'll get to the last two episode reviews eventually. *sigh*

But here's a cool piece of news:
"Lost" will soon be found on G4 and Sci Fi Channel.

Cablers have pacted with Disney-ABC Domestic Television for off-net rights to all six planned seasons of ABC's hit thriller, with segs scheduled to begin airing next September.

G4 will have Monday-Friday strip rights to the show (along with some weekend plays), while Sci Fi will air the skein Monday nights as a stack of four episodes from 7-11 p.m...

Mmmm... four hour Lost marathons.

Scriptwriting 101

A bit of news from Hawaii. It's not really spoilerish - just a setting, no plot or cast info - but I put it in invisotext for those that don't want to know anything. Highlight to read, don't read below if you don't want to know. :)
The media circus at the state Capitol on Friday did not involve the Legislature. It was the crew from ABC's hit show "Lost," which was filming a scene. People passing by saw flashing lights, fake police cars and a horde of news media. The cast was shooting for the upcoming season, which begins airing in February.

The show's producers are extremely secretive so the plot of the scene is being kept under wraps.
Okay. So we have a scene at an official looking building with an event that causes the police and media hounds to show up. Speculation time! Posit:

1) Flashback, flash forward, or off-island real time.
2) Who the scene involves
3) General description of what's going on

Think of it like a "Clue" solution. I'm going with 1) Flash Forward (Kate), 2) Kate, Jack, and Lance Reddick's new character 3) Kate reluctantly agrees to help Jack get information that will help them get back to the island, but Reddick catches them *ahem* "Red" handed.

Paging Mulder and Scully

As far as series in-jokes and cross promoting go, this one's top notch. Chuck, cursed with a treasure trove of government secrets buried in his brain, is given the Room 22 treatment by a bunch of men in black. And what was one of those regurgitated little facts?

"Oceanic Flight 815 was shot down by surface-to-air missiles"

Simply awesome. Watch it for yourself.

A Question of Time... Slots

I just put two polls up in the sidebar because I'm curious of when y'all would like Lost to air when it returns. I do have a preference, but I'll add my vote at the end and talk about it in the comments.


Four more months, everyone. Just four more months.
