I’ve got a pal. He’s only just discovered Lost. He’s admitted to me that he feels like he shouldn’t be watching it. He also feels like it has been written by the people who brought us Sunset Beach. He has also had massive sleep loss because he’s so utterly addicted.

Now, most watched the first series on the box… then went and downloaded everything else from the internet and gasped and gawked at the relentless questions thrown out from the screen. Lots of questions… not many answers. Cliff hanger after cliff hanger… no wonder my buddy is bumbling around the house looking for other tribes and asking me about the whereabouts of ‘crazy maps’.

For those of you purer than pure, not wanting to illegally download the forthcoming series, you’ll be glad to know that the slot for the new show has finally been confirmed.

Channel 4 will be switching Lost from its original Wednesday slot, to Tuesdays nights. This will enable them to bring it back several months earlier than planned.

The second series of the cult show was due in July following the conclusion of Desperate Housewives but was moved forward to Spring to satisfy viewer demand.

Digital Spy
have discovered that the show will air in a new Tuesday night slot at 10pm slot
beginning on May 2. E4 will continue to preview new episodes each week
at 11pm on Tuesdays.

So there you have it. Getting growing a massive beard and cover you lounge in sand. It is coming…

    Yup. It’s true. I’m hooked. I’m fucked. I’ve just finished watching the most recent episode. The fact that I got all 17 episodes of series 2 off the net, very easily, in a single night (yeah yeah, I know it’s naughty), shows you how popular this thing really is. Everyone else is at it too. The fact that I watched 42 episodes in 3 days says the rest.

    It’s shite. The acting stinks. Racial and national stereotypes abound. The characters are completely unbelievable. The script is probably one of the worst I’ve ever heard and is build from a palette of only 5 sentences:

    “It’s not what you think”
    “You’ve got it all wrong”
    “I can explain”
    “Put the gun down”
    and lets not forget…
    “Did you see that?”

    You find yourself screaming at the screen “For fuck’s sake, will somebody please say something useful! Why don’t you people talk to each other ever, other than to drop ‘witty’ one-liners? What’s the matter with you people??!! You’re playing poker? Golf? Fuck off!”

    There’s polar bears, ghosts, evil whisperings, a black-smoke-monster thing, baddies who wear fake beards and inject unborn babies with god-knows-what, a button that MUST be pressed every 108 minutes else John Locke will wet himself, and we still don’t know what the hell those NUMBERS mean.

    Nobody trusts anybody, ever, essentially because absolutely everybody lies about absolutely everything all the time (especially if there’s no good reason to).

    But at least I’m proud to be from the same town as Engerlish Rock God / Oasis impressionist Charlie (even has a brother called Liam), of “You All Everybody” fame – probably the worst song of all time. Of course, being English, he’s the most pathetic character in it and everybody hates him. And he’s a smackhead.

    Nobody bothers to explain to anyone else if they’ve “got something all wrong”, cos they know they won’t be believed anyway. Which just leaves us with hours of powerfully exchanged silent glares, extreme slo-mo action and pure, pure confusion.

    What’s more, I reckon the writers are making it all up as they go along. The social experiment’s on /us/, folks.

    BUT.. like Charlie, I have an addictive personality. And what Lost lacks in pretty much every other aspect as a TV program, it somehow totally, totally makes up for by having the most fiendishly intriguing plot twists of any soap this junkie’s ever come across. Does Corrie have polar bears? Does Benders have people getting sucked into jet engines? Hollyoakes got guns? No. No they don’t.

    Lost is exactly what a great soap should be. Trashy, tense, and more moreish than a light aircraft load of Mother Mary’s personal stash of finest Nigerian Horse.

    Tragically, moving the new series forward by a day in the UK is no good to me whatsoever. I need a NEW fix, NOW. Episode 18 (“Dave”, funnily enough) airs on ABC in oooh, about 5 minutes. Anyone know how to get the channel in the UK? Anyone?! PLEASE??!!

    Thought not.

    Everybody now…

    WOW SPOILER ALERT MR D

    A pretty fare analogy of what is shaping up to be the BEST show ever made in my opinion!! Yeah the Americans have got the stereotypes down to a tee AGAIN (maybe he knows Mel Gibson). The French lady is rude and steals children, the Iraqi like to torture people, the only English guy is a smack head and the two people fighting for top spot are indeed Americans, (not to mention that on a flight from Sydney there is only one Australian and about 40 Americans). But hey, who cares?

    Every week I find myself sat watching a torrent download and then sitting up at three in the morning with match sticks under my eyes screaming at the monitor, willing them to fecking speak to one another about what the hell is going on.

    If you are a fan you MUST and I reiterate MUST have this site in your favourites

    I have found myself falling behind with my work load due to downloading close ups on maps, searching through the internet to find clues on Marvin Candle and Calvin and MR E. Reading articles on smart dust and different religions to try and find some clue to what is happening

    We need to thank JJ Abrams for finally getting a lazy youth to get off the couch and researching into so many different areas. I personally never thought I would go into researching hieroglyphics but there you have it. LOST will do that for you.
    Philosophy
    o Locke and Rousseau are deliberately named after two Enlightenment philosophers
    o The Dharma Initiativewas inspired by the work of B.F. Skinner
    o “Cogito ergo doleo”, meaning “I think therefore I suffer” is a play on Rene Descartes famous phrase “Cogito ergo sum”, “I think therefore I am”. Like Locke and Rousseau he was an Enlightenment philosopher.

    With stuff like this on a TV show we need to sit back and say thank you. Although Hollyoaks is cool too!!! Where would we be without a good old rape story and the fastest case of alzimers know to man.
