I haven’t written anything about Lost since the season finale. Frankly, I’m still digesting it and trying to figure out if I like the latest game-changer. I’m still undecided. Part of that depends on how the final season kicks off. Which brings us to the Lost panel at this year’s Comic-Con.
(Actual spoilers and potential ones below. If you don’t want to know anything about how season six ended or anything revealed at Comic-Con, don’t join us after the jump.)
Links from the Lost Comic-Con panel:
- Doc Artz claims to have every last second of the panel on video.
- Whitney at PopCandy attended the Lost panel and has republished her Twitter feed, with additional links.
- This website is its own kind of genius: a fan created some killer black velvet art featuring
Carlton Cuse, Damon Lindelof and a polar bear, and for his trouble got to present it at Comic-Con.
- This year’s ARG appears to be Lost University. Meh. I’ve never gotten much into the ARGs, and this one seems the least compelling yet.
Hurley’s Mr. Cluck’s commercial.
This was promo’ed at Comic-Con, and it raises a lot of questions. Either the producers are just messing with us (as they are wont to do on occasions like this), or this video is a huge clue about the final season. Think about it: Hurley starts out the video saying “Ever since I won the lottery, I’ve had nothing but good luck,” then proceeds to talk about his recent vacation to Austrailia. In other words, Faraday’s plan (carried out by Jack) to detonate a hydrogen bomb was a success (?) and in the final season we’ll see what it would have been like if Oceanic 815 never would have crashed (?) (!).
That would certainly explain this video:
There was also a third video showing Kate as a fugitive on America’s Most Wanted. I’ll update this post if I can track down a high-quality copy of the video.
All three of the videos explore the same scenario: Oceanic 815 never crashed. Surely it won’t be as simple as that, but it’s an interesting (and frankly, frustrating) premise.
I also like this promo video from ABC quite a bit, created in the style of a ’70s/’80s mysteries-of-the-unexplained television show.
The ABC.com website promises more episodes in the future.
At some point before the start of next season, I promise* to do an in-depth analysis of where things stand in the show. But this stuff at least gives us something to chew on until then.
