It was a year ago that "LOST" left the airwaves. Though it clearly took us far too long to say goodbye, there's perhaps no better time than now to do so, looking back on the six-year spectacular run of our favorite TV show ever. For those still listening, thank you, and mahalo for being a part of this amazing journey.
Today brings the much-anticipated release of “LOST: Season Six” on DVD (or Blu-Ray) and “LOST: The Complete Collection” on DVD (or Blu-Ray). The release brings what could be the last twelve minutes of the six-year “LOST” story with “The New Man in Charge,” a 12-minute epilogue showing a glimpse of what followed the final fade […]
For the third year in a row, we joined Jay & Jack on their “LOST Podcasting” panel at the San Diego Comic-Con. Over 100 people filled the Santa Rosa Room at the Marriott to talk about the end of “LOST,” and its possible future.
Before the final curtain falls on “The Transmission,” we’re making a last-minute pilgrimage to Comic-Con in San Diego this week to see old friends, make new ones, and collect the last “LOST” stories being told at the annual “Geek Prom.” If you’ll be there, we hope to connect with you. Track us on Twitter (@hawaii and @mrshawaii), or send us a text message at the LOSTline at 815-310-0808.
The last episode of “The Transmission” will take a little longer than planned to come together. Perhaps we’re having trouble letting go. Perhaps we’re just disorganized. Perhaps Ryan forgot that his mother-in-law would be in town. Either way, we appreciate your patience, and if you haven’t yet chimed in with your series-in-review comments, now’s your […]
For the final episode of “The Transmission,” we want to take a special, wistful look back on the last six years of “LOST.” So much has happened since the moment Oceanic Flight 815 crashed on that mysterious island on September 22, 2004… both on the show, and in the “LOST” fan community. As far as […]
In our penultimate podcast, we take our traditional look back at the last season as a whole. We review our favorite moments from each episode of Season Six, evaluate how each character turned out in the end, and choose our favorite episodes. Then, we turn it over to "You All Everybody" for a your take on the final season of "LOST." We pay tribute to the late Nunu, then lay out our plans for the last episode of "The Transmission." Finally, we hear from The Others LOST Band with their song, "Let Go."
Nunu, the beloved dog of Jorge Garcia and Bethany Shady, died last month just as they all were preparing to leave Hawaii. Nunu had her own share of fans, and even appeared in an episode of “LOST” this season. We sent our condolences, and memorialized Nunu at the Memorial Day lantern floating ceremony the next […]
Each season of “LOST” has a distinct personality. From the story arc to the tone, pacing, and — of course — a new storytelling twist. The sixth and final season of “LOST” brought us the last act of the island story, as well as the confounding “flash sideways.” With the entirety of the show now behind us, […]
After spending a week rewatching and rethinking "The End," we revisit the series finale of "LOST" with a full podcast. Much of our initial reaction stands, but taking in the bigger picture reveals some new ideas and nagging questions. After our take, we turn it over to You All Everybody for a mix of reactions, from satisfaction to disappointment. And we close the show with "I'll Never Be LOST Again," a hip-hop tribute to the final season of "LOST" by Injustice League.
“There’s a difference between doing nothing and waiting.” Unlike Daniel Faraday, we’ve got a pretty poor grasp of time, so our podcast will be a little late this weekend. While you wait, feel free to dive into the more than 1,200 comments that poured in on the series finale. And if you have any favorites, […]
The end of “LOST.” Six seasons, over 120 hours, culminating in the two-and-a-half hour series finale, “The End.” We can’t believe we’re here. And we’re still struggling to process this final episode. This is our initial reaction “shortwave transmission.” But the full exploration of “The End” will come in our May 30 podcast. Please share your reaction and join the conversation by commenting below. Stay with us. Talk to us. Hold us!
“While Locke devises a new strategy, Jack’s group searches for Desmond.” For this penultimate episode of “LOST,” we’re posting a “shortwave transmission,” a shorter, initial reactions podcast, rather than our usual blog entry. We skip the recap and get straight to our take, then share the first few calls to come in on the LOSTLine.
This edition of "The Transmission" tackes "Across the Sea," the controversial fifteenth episode of Season 6. We share our thoughts, then we turn it over to our brilliant listeners in "You All Everybody." We discuss our plans for our last few podcasts, then play the latest track from The Others LOST Band. Finally, in the "Forward Cabin," we hear from a fan who has already seen the upcoming episode of "LOST." At the end of the show, we include a sweet tribute sent to us by our fellow podcasters on the Lost Podcasting Network. Sniff!
The “LOST” creative team took a huge risk this week, taking a sharp detour this late in the season and unabashedly plunging into fantastical mythology. And, given the payoff from “Ab Aeterno” earlier this season, we give them a great deal of credit for doing so. But “Across the Sea” seemed to fall far short […]
After a week off, this edition of "The Transmission" covers "The Candidate," the unforgettable fourteenth episode of Season 6. We share our thoughts, then we turn it over to our brilliant listeners in "You All Everybody." We discuss our plans for our last few podcasts, then play the latest track from "The Others LOST Band." Finally, in a tiny "Forward Cabin," we look at what's coming up on "LOST."
Intellectually, we knew the stakes were life and death. We knew not all of our cherished survivors would make it to the final act. Yet, knowing is one thing. Seeing and feeling the sudden and tragic loss of beloved characters is another thing entirely. The skeptic in me, the spoiler addict in me, saw it […]
As proposed in last week’s thread and mentioned in our latest podcast, several blog regulars are organizing a re-watch of the two-part Season Five premiere of “LOST,” which includes “Because You Left” and “The Lie.” As we endure a one-week break during the show’s final season, it should be fun and interesting to revisit the […]
This edition of "The Transmission" covers "The Last Recruit," the thirteenth episode of Season 6. We share our thoughts, then we turn it over to our brilliant listeners in "You All Everybody." After the latest track from The Others LOST Band, we report on the very last week of "LOST" production in the "Forward Cabin."
