All About 'Lost'

Sunday November 28, 2010

Welcome to lost.about.com. This site is no longer being updated, but I invite you to come on in and look around. Some not-to-be-missed articles you might be interested in:

Goodbye Losties!

Saturday November 27, 2010

Well, it's time to say goodbye! But don't reach for the Virgin Mary statue just yet. There are two bits of good news:

  1. Even though I am leaving the site, the site won't leave you. I won't be adding to lost.about.com, but the-powers-that-be are allowing the site to be archived so that we can all use it as a reference in the future, or as a trip down memory lane.
  2. I'm no longer Lost, but I refuse to be forgotten! My Benjamin Linus bobblehead is going to have to share his shelf, because I've stepped off of the island and fallen head first into all TV dramas (well, all the good ones, at least). I'm heading over to TVDramas.about.com to work with Rachel Thomas to keep you up to date on what is happening inside your television set.

You have been such wonderful fans! Thank you for sharing my love of Lost. I leave you with this advice: Change your shirt if you get a little Arzt on you, remember that no one can tell you what you can't do, and don't get Scooby Doo-ed, Dude.

The Ajira plane is leaving the runway. Farewell, my friends.

Matthew Fox Moves On

Will Matthew Fox ever be anyone other than Jack Shephard to me? Probably. When Lost began, I always wanted to refer to him as Charlie, based on his Party of Five character. It didn't make it any easier that there was a Charlie on the show.

Matthew is moving on to London theater. He'll play Bobby, a crass American carpenter, in "In a Forest, Dark and Deep" by Tony Award-nominated playwright and filmmaker Neil LaBute. Sorry, Matthew, but I won't be traveling to London to see your debut. I will, however, watch you as Jack Shephard on my TV over and over and over again.

'Lost' - Six Months Later

Can you believe it's been six months since Jack's eye closed for the final time? There are a ton of people watching the show on DVD who have yet to experience the finale, and some who have just experienced it recently, but for the rest of us, we've had six months to ponder the meaning of Lost, and discuss possible answers to all those unanswered questions.

What do you think of the series now? The night of the finale, I posted a poll to get an idea of what people thought of the series overall. Forty-four percent thought it was the best show they'd ever seen, compared to 53% just one week later. Twenty-six percent said it was a really great show, with 24% saying the same the following week. Two percent hated it at first, but that number fell to just 1% by the next week. Just one month later, 57% thought it was the best show ever with 29% saying it was a great show. No one said they hated it, but to be fair, those who hated it probably didn't stick around to talk more Lost.

And without much to add, this site will be archived in the next month or so. It will still be here (hopefully forever) as a reference, but I won't be adding to it. <Sigh> Why couldn't Lost have just lasted forever? Well, because it needed an ending. All good things must come to an end. <Super big sigh>
