TV report card for 2007: A solid B- - Television- msnbc.com: "ABC
Highlights: ABC produced more new hits than any network. “Pushing Daisies” was the buzz show coming out of the fall, and has kept up its early promise. Christina Applegate-starrer “Samantha Who?” is no longer a question mark. The answer is, yes, people will watch a mediocre show if it’s got a cute female telling the jokes. Despite idiotic chatter from fans who felt the story wasn’t moving fast enough or that main characters were being left in the cold, the aforementioned “Lost” (which starts up again Jan. 31) continues to be riveting."

"Missing Pieces" Number 8 - Buried Secrets
This missing piece features Jin, Sun, Michael and Vincent. Sun is trying to bury a California drivers license when Michael startles her. They share a moment and almost kiss, until Vincent interrupts.
I just wonder if this to foreshadow somethings to come in the near future, and even though it seems very unlikely Sun cheated on Jin before, could something more happen or has something more already happened? Really random, but could the baby Michael's?

I'm not sure if anyone else has commented on this yet, maybe some one has, I haven't seen it. I've watched the new extended trailer a number of times, and I noticed this one little part that I had look at several times, but didn't see. After Locke says that there's a traitor, there is a brief shot of Sayid and Sawyer grabbing Jack, with Jack saying, "Let go of me." So it seems, that those who side with Jack will be the ones leaving, and those who side with Locke won't be.

The Best TV Episodes of 2007
''Through the Looking Glass'' May 23 (ABC)
After strange, mystical forces (read: critics and fans) aligned against Lost early in season 3, how did ABC's trippiest drama fight back? With a gasp-inducing finale that packed a wallop of love, death, and war, including the heartbreakingly redemptive drowning of Charlie (Dominic Monaghan), and the castaways marching closer to rescue (or doom?). And the final revelation that Jack's (Matthew Fox) down-and-out flashback scenes were actually a flash-forward — he and Kate (Evangeline Lilly) have gotten off the island, but he desperately wants to return — tickled, tangled, and tantalized our minds all at once. — Dan Snierson

Stephen King's Best of '07: Movies and TV - Entertainment Weekly
We all know that writers of LOST love Stephen King, and well Stephen loves them back. This is what he had to say about what he calls the #1 TV Show LOST:
Still the best. I rewatched the entire third season to make sure, and — yes — still the best. Heroes just doesn't have its mythic grandeur. People are reaching for the stars here. And maybe beyond. Really, there's never been anything like it."

Okay Losties, here's what "Lost" co-creator Damon Lindelof has to say about the move to Thursday night: It's a boost for the mysterious castaways because it guarantees that they will not have to face off against the "American Idol" machine and it also protects them from going head-to-head with original episodes of "CSI" as long as the strike continues.
"I think it's awesome," Lindelof said. "If they had told us last year we were going to get the 'Grey's Anatomy' time slot, I would have been thrilled, especially since there's no new 'CSI' to go against," he said. "But the time slot is completely colored by the fact that we're still engaged in this writers strike. It's bad for the entire town. The only show you don't want to be up against in January is 'American Idol,' and there were very few time slots that would afford us to not compete with 'Idol.' It's great to not be up against 'Idol' but [it's a shame] that we're not up against 'Idol' because there's a writers strike."
"Lost" performs better in the ratings when the networks air episodes without interruption in the scheduling. Lindelof and Executive Producer Carlton Cuse designed the new season as a 16-episode arc and were hoping the strike would be resolved in time for ABC to be able to air the season without
interruption. But with the end of the strike increasingly uncertain, Lindelof said Friday that ABC felt it had no choice but to go ahead.
"What I would not want to do is hold these episodes of 'Lost' indefinitely," he said. "I feel like the fans haven't seen any 'Lost' since the end of May, and I completely understand the network's decision
to air these eight episodes. We certainly designed our season as 16 straight and this is not ideal by any stretch of the imagination. But we can't go on strike in one breath and then complain about the fact that the series isn't airing the way we want it to in the other. I believe in the strike and why we're on strike, so that supersedes what my preference is for the ideal way for the show to end."
Because of complaints from fans last year that the show poses more questions than it answers, the writers learned to wrap up their seasons more conclusively, Cuse said. To that end, they designed the first half of the fourth season as set-up and the second as pay-off.
“The audience just needs to be warned,” Cuse said. “There’s a very cool cliffhanger at the end of the eighth episode. But most of the major questions were designed to get answered at the second half of the season. The whole idea that we’re actually looking forward as well as looking back is something we’re very excited about as storytellers. But there is a fear that if the strike continues and we’re not able to complete the season, that people might feel a little frustrated because those eight episodes aren’t conclusive.”

LOST Answers Revealed in S3 Blu-Ray DVDs
This was posted over at ODI.
LOST Answers from Season 3 Blu-Ray DVD Set Highlights, click to link above to see full list.
- Desmond is why the plane crashed, when he didn't push the button.
- "Pushing the button was not a psychological experiment." It was a real job.
- The electromagnetism on the island will not lead to a black hole that will destroy the planet.
- We haven't seen the last supply drop, and keep in mind that just because the package had a parachute attached does not mean it was actually "dropped."
- Walt does have psychic powers - not clear how powerful he is. The show will address his growth spurt.
- That was definitely Walt on the computer talking to Michael. Did he actually physically type is a whole other story. Maybe he used his psychic powers to send the message.
- Walt has definitely spent some time in Room 23.
- The Polar Bears were brought to the island by the Dharma Initiative. After The Others took over, the bears were released. They swam to the other island and eventually mated. Polar Bears are still on the island.
- Mittelos Bioscience is a front that The Others use in the real world. It is also an anagram for "lost time." The Others can go back and forth from the island to the outside world. The sub is only part of how The Others travel to and from the island. The show will explore the notion of time on the island and how The Others travel.
- Charlie, Christian, Kelvin, Nikki, Paulo, Radzinski, and Mikhail are dead.
- "Just because you're dead doesn't mean you can't reappear"
- Hostiles = Others is true. The Others are also comprised of other groups that were on the Island.
- Locke's paralysis was healed by the island. It is not clear if it's permanent.
- Marvin Candle, Mark Wickmund, and Edgar Halowax are triplets. No, wait. They're the same person. We will get to know more about him.
- There was a real Henry Gale. He was a balloonist. He was not a member of The Dharma Initiative. We will find out why he was in the vicinity of the island.
- There's only one Richard Alpert. "Age is all relative on the island."
- Penny established the listening station to find Desmond. We will find out just how Penny knew there was an island to look for.
- The Others are responsible for bringing Anthony Cooper to the island. Drugs + Accident = arriving on the island. "There are other nefarious things that The Others are doing in the real world, but we can't tell you about that yet."
- Each station has its own orientation video. There could be more than 6 hatches/films.
- The hieroglyphics on the timer meant "Underworld." Dharma gave a shout-out to those that were on the island before, "props to the Egyptians. That sort of thing."
- The Blast Door map was incredibly accurate. However, there were two spectrums to the map, and we only saw one. The question mark is the Pearl Station, and the various references to the monster and its travel patterns were "pretty definitive."

"Anne in Auckland, New Zealand: This Lost hiatus is killing me! Got anything on Sawyer? In the beginning of season four, Sawyer is...on Team Locke! I can tell you that there are two teams and that the other leader won't surprise you...but Kate's allegiance will. Got guesses on the two teams and the second leader? (His name may rhyme with 'frak'...) Comment below! Oh and P.S. As far as I know, Jin and Sun aren't playing for either team. Suspicious? You bet! Lost - Best Show of Skin"
"Lyly in Tours, France: Can you tell me if you have something about Lost for the new season, please? Especially about Sawyer and Kate... All I can say about Sawyer and Kate is this: 'If you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it's yours. If it doesn't, it never was.' I know it's cheesy, but I'm cheesy, dammit, and I believe that's what's going on with S&K this season... "
"Sofia in Mexico: Any news from Lost? You know how in that episode of Dexter, when Doakes cornered Dex, Dex head-butted him and informed him he'd always be one step ahead? Well, that's pretty much how Ben is with the rest of us. In season four, it seems like Ben still has everybody's number—including those on an incoming vessel. Boo-yah. I'm also hearing the show is currently casting fluent Franco-Tunisian voice actors for what must be episode seven or eight. Another hatchsicle? Oui ou non?"

Alice Graced with Lost Star? - ShockTillYouDrop.com
It seems that Sarah Michelle Prinze has stepped away from "Alice," and Maggie Grace ("Lost") may get the part now.
The story picks up Alice's tale a few years after her first adventures in Wonderland. She's now a disturbed young woman mourning the death of her parents as she returns to the land of talking animals and the wicked Queen of Hearts.

That said, when it comes to Matt Reeves' "destructo-vérité" Cloverfield, are we going to get an epic-length account of New York City's annihilation? Nada. Sources tell Shock, Reeves and company have cobbled together a lean 'n mean 90-minute tale.

"The producers of Lost offered up a few answers behind the mysteries in season three and a few hints about the upcoming fourth season. The third season drops on DVD on Dec. 11. Executive producer Carlton Cuse admitted that the people who were on the jet that crashed into the island all have to pay a price for being there. 'Yes, and that price is $3.95,' he kidded. 'In seriousness, the show is about redemption. All the characters on this island are confronting the failures of their past and revisiting issues that go to the core of their emotional makeup.'"

This week I want to examine the theories revolving around the island's regenerative abilities. The island appears to have the ability to cure paralysis and cancer, stop the aging process, boost sperm count, heal a nasty shot to the gut, and, in the case of Mikhail and possibly Jack's dad, actually resurrect the dead. Can these things be scientifically explained, or do all of these medical miracles ensure that there is a mystical aspect to the island?
