Lost

Discussion in 'TV + Film' started by Dazzle, Aug 12, 2009.

  1. Well it's not due to start until January next year but there's been quite a bit of information coming out over the last few weeks so rather than hijack the season 5 topic, I thought it might be best to start a new one.

    There isn't anything too spoilery here and no one knows what the hell is going on yet but I'm going to post a couple of things we know from Comic-Con and the interactive Lost game they are running at the moment. From past breaks in the seasons, I've found the information they leak are what they want the audience to know and the big shocks aren't usually leaked.

    That being said, here is what we know:

    Pretty much all of the original cast are said to be returning for at least one episode. Boone and Charlie have confirmed while Juliet and Faraday are also going to be making appearances in season 6. With Juliet who knows if that means she lives or dies but she won't be in the full season due to her filming V.

    The other bit of information that has leaked from the interactive game is the title of the two hour season premiere. Look away if you don't want to know, but again it's something the writers have leaked out there purposely for us to theorise:

    'LA X'

    On first look you'd assume that means what they did worked and the season will start with 815 arriving in LAX airport but it's not going to be that simple. I'm betting it just refers to someones ex who lives in LA. But still... theorise away!
     
  2. I'm so excited. Got completely bored halfway through season two, and then lost interest when it moved to Sky One, but picked things back up with season four and I'm hooked again. I can't believe we're coming to the end.

    I'm not sure the Losties' attempt to correct the past will change things though. Determinism seems to have been quite a strong thread through the last couple of seasons, and I'm not sure how far they'll be able to stray from it without the plot getting to messy to tie up at the end. Could be interesting if they do stop flight 815 from ever crashing.

    The whole Jacob and Locke stuff from the finale really threw me, so I guess anything could happen!

    I'm looking forward to seeing if they explain why Richard never ages, and what the hell happened to Clare. I hope Walt is back, too. I always thought it a shame that his character was never fully explored.
     
  3. They've said Richard's story will be one of the most important of the season. He's being moved up to a series regular now so will be in the majority of the episodes. I can't wait to see how they explain Claire's disappearance. Hope it doesn't disappoint!

    I'm actually painfully excited for this to return. I've been re-watching the show from the beginning over the summer to pass the time (nearly at the end of Season 3 now) and it's utterly bizarre to see how much the show has changed from Season 1.

    I can't imagine the Losties will have hit the reset button fully (how pisssed off will the fans be if the first 5 seasons never actually happened!), but the main theory floating around will be that there'll be two alternate timelines - one where they did get some sort of reset and one where time just continues on post Season 5. Something tells me it'll be very complicated and confusing either way.
     
  6. I'm, sure I read somewhere that it was said after the first few episodes, everything's going to settle into one timeline, with very few flashbacks or flashforwards.
     
  7. I was planning to do that but then discovered my boyfriend hadn't seen past season three so have been watching season four with him. We finished that today and are gonna start on season five next! I may go back to the beginning after though!
     
  8. I was tempted to go back to the beginning, I really was, but I've watched Seasons 1 to 4 through two times now I'm not sure I'd have the patience. I got into Lost in early 2007 when Season 3 was being shown so I watched Seasons 1 to 3 originally at my own pace, too, which I always feel makes things easier to remember than the 'normal' TV pace.

    Really looking forward to Season 6. It might sound weird, but I'm hoping spoilers don't leak out too much. I did most of Season 5 spoiler free and the show was better for it - and what with this being the very last Season I want to experience it not knowing what's going to happen...
     
  9. I never read Lost spoilers. It's too brilliant to ruin it like that! I hope that they didn't reset the timeline. It seemed to me like they were the cause of the incident all along?
     
  10. I cant wait for series 6. But i wont be doing a marathon run this year... ive done it tooo many times in the past, i just end up skipping the boring episodes and missing a third of each series haha

    US premiere date announced: 2nd February.

    STILL 2 1/2 months to go!
     
  12. SO excited about this - cannot wait to see how it all comes together! Wonder when Sky1 will start it - probably Sunday 7th Feb...?
     
  13. 2 February!!! That's later than usual, I was expecting mid January.

    Colour me extremely excited though. I'm a sucker for Lost spoilers, but I'm going to try really hard to avoid them once the series starts.
     
  14. No spoilers for me either!

    And since it's gonna be the last season of such an incredible show I'm seriously considering re-watching seasons 1-5 in December and January. Just to be able to enjoy the last season as much as possible.
     
  15. I hope Juliet didn't die, she was one of my favourites.

    Can't. Wait.
     
  17. I really didn't think Juliet died but the creators have spoken about her as though she's died but she is definitely going to be appearing in the 6th season which is what matters really.
     
  18. To be honest I'm just grateful they've told us she will be appearing.

    Which reminds me - can we have a "no spoiler" agreement in this thread before things get messy like the Desperate Housewives thread? Half the fun of Lost is not knowing what's going to happen...

    Latest fun thing is that the premiere date, February 2nd, is also Groundhog Day - and this date was deliberately chosen...

    Eugh, it's things like that this make me have two minds about lost these days. On the one hand, I have been a fairly loyal viewer since the first season (may have dipped out a bit in season three, but come on, who didn't?) and I feel I owe it to myself to watch the upcoming season to finish it off. There are characters on this show I genuinely enjoy watching, and when the writers concentrate on telling a story and not just go balls out on the mumbo jumpo time-traveling stuff, I think it's one of the best television shows of all time.

    On the other hand though, if this season gets bogged down like the fifth one did (I honestly think they could have handled the entire time-traveling business in about four episodes - an entire season, please!) with mundane story lines and characters I really don't care about, I'm high tailing it off the island for good.

    In my eyes, LOST has had two of the best seasons of television ever (season one and four), one largely awful season (three - at least until the end), and two seasons that are above average television (two and five), but I hold hope this season will be among the greats. Either way, it's a classic television show for the ages.
