The day has finally arrived…

with 2 comments

Seems like I’ve been counting down to tonight’s Lost finale for months…at least since I heard about this “game-changing” cliffhanger, which is now a common term thrown around in all the magazines. 

I’m excited to see what they’ve got up their sleeves, because if they over-promise and under-deliver, similar to what they did last year (which was good, don’t get me wrong, but was way overhyped), I’ll be angry. 

I think I’ve prepared myself by lowering the bar just a little (not much!), but after this week’s boring 24 finale, I need a boost.  Heroes was good, not great, so I’m not riding super high right now.

Hopefully that changes this evening.

Interesting Lost scoopage….

leave a comment »

E! has some possible scoop on what’s in store for Lost at the ABC upfront presentations…

The list is as follows:

  1. Lost will probably shift back to an earlier time slot….Not a huge deal, but I’m hoping (along with ABC execs) that this will boost viewership, because if I’m thinking right, viewers on the East and West coast have to stay up until 11:00 p.m. just to catch their weekly dose…..Too late if you ask me…
  2. Lost is going to be back in January of 2008, allowing for a straight run through of all the new episodes, similar to 24…again, good news……The idea they had for this season was a start in the right direction, but the weak cliffhanger and even worse episodes were a major letdown and killed the momentum the show had built up……I’m all for running all 22 episodes in a row…
  3. Lost will end after two more seasons…..this is both good and bad….First, I don’t know how I’ll survive Wednesdays without Lost…it’s easily still one of my top shows, despite it’s lagging quality at points….This is good though, because as they mention at E!, it will force the producers to stick to a timetable on all the questions (and there’s alot!) they have left to reveal.

I’m also really psyched for this seasons “game-changing” season cliffhanger…hopefully it’s not as underwhelming as last year.  They teased it like crazy last year, and it didn’t live up to my expectations.

Lost 3.17- “Catch-22” Musings

leave a comment »

I’m not going to write a full review for tonight’s episode…Honestly, I think I’ll have to watch it over to catch everything again.

I’ve been disappointed by the Desmond episodes….they always seem to be highly dramatic, but don’t really provide any results…They should take some cues from last week’s Juliet-centric outing….That was good TV!

Let’s see if the audience embraces the new addition to the cast a little better than Nikki and Paolo….I think that may be tough to come by…..

I’m waiting for another “WOW” moment, and it sounds like in the coming weeks there will be one….It’s just a matter of when.

I’m totally psyched to see the Ben flashback.  I think that’s 3 weeks away…..that’ll be a good one.

Preview the possible Grey’s spinoff…

leave a comment »

TV Addict has some pictures up from the upcoming two-part Grey’s Anatomy episode.

Honestly, it has a much different look than I expected……I’m not as confident that it will work as well as Grey’s has, but I think it’s a pretty sure bet that it will at least get a few lookers from Grey’s to follow it.

Check out the pictures via the link below and see what you think…..Will Addison make it on her own?

A Lost episode without flashbacks?!

leave a comment »

So I just read some news regarding the line up for the rest of this season’s Lost episodes.

I had heard that Jack was going to be the flashback for the final 2-hour finale, but he was also slated for another episode as well.  Apparently that has changed again, and the change is indeed an intriguing one.

Episode 3.19 is going to be the first flashback-free episode of Lost ever….And there’s also going to be a flashback for one of my favorite new characters sooner than expected

To avoid any spoilers, I’ll stop there….

Check out the scoop for yourself.  I’m just intrigued to see how this episode without flashbacks compares to all the others….Could it convince them to use the flashbacks more sparingly?  Who knows?

Thursday TV Outlook

leave a comment »

Here’s what I’ll be watching tonight.

Survivor: Fiji-“Are We Gonna Live on Exile Island”– I think that about sums it up.  Tonight has the appearance of a merge, judging by all the new colored buffs the survivors are wearing in the promos.  I’m still rooting for Earl and Yau Man….we’ll see how the shakeup, if it happens, affects the two separate tribes.

The Office-“Safety Training”-We’ll find out the true dangers of the workplace in this installment.  I’m sensing some developments that may lead to the final arcs of the season.  I’ll be glad if Jim and Pam say one nice thing to each other tonight.  No more Roy after last week’s firing, so that’s a start.  I have high hopes…and the return of Andy should be interesting.  Seems like he’s be gone forever….and that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Grey’s Anatomy-“Every Moment Counts”-Now that I just remembered that this is a clip show, I may scavenge for another show to take its place for the evening.  Scrubs or 30 Rock perhaps?  I think those show up in that time slot…..

Lost 3.16 “One of Us” Recap

leave a comment »

So tonight Lost was back in form, and the episode lived up to the hype of what I had read about it. Seriously….let’s get to it….I’ll go with almost all positive tonight, because tonight’s episode was very satisfying.

The Very Good

  • We finally got some freakin’ answers! And a lot of them! The illness, Ethan, etc….I’ll have to watch again!
  • How about that last second encounter between Juliet and Ben…seriously, just when you start to root for Juliet…BAM! Up there with the eating the cereal moment last year.
  • I thought it was hilarious when they were approaching the communication station, and Ben was yelling “Don’t shoot us”…….
  • The flashbacks were enjoyable….I don’t know what it is about Juliet, but she really just fits in as a normal character on this show……
  • Juliet….she’s 2/2 in her episodes rockin’…..I’m seriously thinking that Elizabeth Mitchell deserves some sort of award.

The Bad

  • That it wasn’t longer…..seriously….great stuff. This is setting up the final set of episodes, and has re-energized the show tremendously…..Let’s hope they can keep it up.

Sorry this is so short….I’m thinking this will be updated later, because, once again, I didn’t live blog it….I think that would help a lot…

Discuss!

Wednesday TV Outlook

leave a comment »

Tonight is somewhat exciting for me…

Friday Night Lights“State“- The title says it all.  The Panthers are playing for the state championship against their former QB, Voodoo.  I’ll be interested in seeing what they wrap up and what they leave open for this one…At least they ordered more scripts for the show….a good sign of things to come, considering this show really……REALLY deserves a second season.  Personally, I’m hoping there’s more development in the Landry storyline….that’s been the highlight the last few episodes.

Lost-“One of Us”- Jack returns to camp with Juliet, and I’m sensing some confrontations brewing.  I also hear Claire comes down with a mystery illness.  Considering that creepy shot of Ethan in all the previews ,could it possibly have something to do with the time he kidnapped her way back when…..I loved the last Juliet episode, and by the looks of it (and according to Ausiello) it will be one of the better episodes this season.  I’m so there!
