New Rules, New Names?

Terry O'Quinn

Lost is another strong ensemble show with a multitude of possible contenders. Naveen Andrews, who plays brooding ex-soldier Sayid, and Terry O'Quinn as quiet, complex John Locke nabbed nods last year. "I would love it if [O'Quinn] got nominated again," says Ariano. "He's, like, the only character on Lost that I don't hate now. I still love the show, but everyone on it really gets on my nerves, except him--I think he's still great." Read more

JJ Abrams Talks More Trek
Stating the last couple Star Trek movies were bad is an understatement. How bad were they? So bad that recently announced writer/director/producer for the 11th Star Trek film J.J. Abrams stopped watching. "To be totally honest with you...I haven't even seen Nemesis. I feel like the series disconnected for me at a certain period,”

Lilly Pure?'

Evangeline Lilly

Ms Lilly, a cover girl, and star of TV series lost, claims that she prayed to God to make her ugly. She goes on to say that the leers of men made her feel like a whore. Considering that Evangeline chose acting/modeling as her career, and freely displays herself like a ham hock in a butcher shop window, this comes off as a little phony. Read More

Teen noir of 'Brick' ultimately off-putting
"Brick" begins with a body -- that of pretty, blond Emily (Emilie de Ravin from "Lost"), lying face-down in the water outside an ominous-looking drainage tunnel.

Haverford Alum Gets “Lost” and Finds Fame on TV

Daniel Dae Kim

Just a few years ago, Daniel Dae Kim was the celebrity equivalent of the old Haverford College classmate with the familiar face and the elusive name. Television and movie audiences may have recognized his classically handsome mug from such shows as “24,” “Angel,” “ER,” and “Star Trek: Enterprise,” or films like The Hulk and Spiderman 2, but his moniker wasn’t considered “household.” Read More

The Stepfather is actually quite the solid little B-movie, and one that features a fantastically unhinged performance by Terry O'Quinn.

Bad Twin Author Revealed: 'Lost' finds forgotten 'Twin'

Laurence Shames

Synergy doesn't come easily.

That could be the lesson of "Bad Twin," the pseudonymously written "Lost" tie-in book, which Daily Variety has learned was penned by thriller author and noted ghostwriter Laurence Shames.

"Twin" was published by ABC's Disney sister unit Hyperion Books last month in a clever cross-promotional campaign meant to play off the obsessive interest in ABC series "Lost." (...Read More)

Channel 4 loses LOST to Sky One

by plkrtn
Sky One, the premium satellite and cable broadcaster today (October 19, 2006) poached the exclusive broadcast rights to LOST in the UK for Seasons 3 and 4 from its former broadcaster Channel 4. Channel 4 originally won the contract from Buena Vista International in 2004 and were understood to be in re-negotiations for several months before Sky One outbid them with an estimated £700,000 ($1,300,000) cost per episode. Several other channels were also rumoured to be interested in the show, including five. The new rights also include High Defintion broadcasts, mobile phone content and Video on Demand rights. Sky plan to air the first 6 episodes of LOST before Christmas, then after a short Christmas break air episodes within a week of US broadcasts.

Sky One head Richard Wolfe said that LOST was "the envy of every network" since it began in the Summer of 2005 in the UK. "The series has defined TV drama over the last two years," he added. "We are absolutely thrilled to bring it to Sky One." BSkyB will also be airing LOST on Sky Three, its digital free-to-air service, but will be subject to Sky's standard 6 to 12 month delay from its Sky One airing.

Are opening main title themes for TV dramas a thing of the past?
By Erin Carlson, Associated Press

Shows fast-forward through theme songs

Today, show themes are doing a fast fade as the networks crunch their programming budgets. Are they about to join the variety hour in the TV graveyard? Many sitcoms and one-hour dramas are dropping that device. They dive straight into the action.

ABC's "Lost" does it. The twisty drama begins after a teaser, which touches on what happened in previous installments, and cuts to a black screen at a crucial plot point. A white "Lost" logo swirls into view. Eerie music plays. The whole thing lasts about five seconds. Read more

Recent Lost filming location: The John A. Burns School of Medicine at the University of Hawaii
By Katherine Nichols, Honolulu Star-Bulletin

Lost goes to medical school: When the hit ABC television show "Lost" needed a laboratory to film a scene involving Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet), there was one obvious location: the new state-of-the-art research building at the School of Medicine in Kakaako. Yesterday was the first time a production of this magnitude had ever been shot on the campus, and big questions loomed: Would the crew disrupt years of scientists' research by moving specimens or temporarily cutting power to temperature-controlled projects? And what about the misconception that cadavers graciously donated to the medical school's Willed Body Program would be used as props? Read more Read related

By Jeff Hidek, Wilmington Star-News
Lost in Transition - In two weeks, ABC's hit drama Lost will disappear for three months. To try to appease fans who grumbled last season that the heavily serialized drama repeated too often and aired new episodes erratically, producers have decided to eliminate repeats altogether. Still, producers are taking a risk. Sure, long hiatuses have worked for 24, which never starts its season till January (also so it can air uninterrupted). But remember what happened to Commander-in-Chief last season when ABC shelved it over the holidays? No? That's my point. If I've heard one consistent complaint about the fall season, it's been that Lost is losing us. Read more Read related

Javier Grillo-Marxuach

Writing Lost - Javier Grillo-Marxuach, a 1991 Carnegie Mellon University grad from the school's creative writing and literary and cultural studies programs, returned to campus to share tales of his experiences with current students and the public.

To illustrate how the writing process works, Grillo-Marxuach walked us through a first-season Lost episode, "All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues", which was originally titled What It Takes, a title others on the "Lost" staff deemed lame.

1.4 Million get Lost in the UK
Lost's debut on Sky One managed 1.4 million viewers, and a 9% share of the available UK audience for Sky One last night (Sunday 19th November), better than predicted figures which put it at 1 million. Despite recording a drop of more than half of the viewers since Season 2's premiere on Channel 4 last May, this was above expectations and in line with the 1 million viewers the Season 3 premiere of 24 managed in 2003, after Sky poached that show from the BBC.

The most worrying thing is the show is now watched by just 1/5th of those that watched the Season 1 premiere in July 2005 on Channel 4, but it is still one of the highest rating Digital TV only shows in the UK.
