    Exclamation Re: "Lost" - Season 4: News & Sightings

    That first piece is particularly insightful. Indeed, during this incredibly long hiatus, the mobisodes are the focus of intense interest and attention. Although they're not particularly deep plot wise, fans are happy to get whatever taste they can get of these characters. It's interesting to read how this online-directed content may help set a precedent (despite everyone's contractual insistence to the contrary).

    With the studios wanting to pay less than the "LOST" deal and the writers wanting to get more, we may very likely end up right in the neighborhood when all is said and done.

    I think the 'residual-free window' will be an interesting battle, though. How long after initial broadcast or availability will online content cease to be enough of a draw to generate real revenue? Six weeks? Three days? Probably, again, somewhere in the middle.

    Neat to see a small picket here, at the Diamond Head Studios. Not impacting production, I guess, but still making a statement in an environment where I think some folks assumed we'd be completely off the radar.

    Speaking of "LOST" sightings, here's my latest report from late last week.

    I feel like I want to hand out musubi to the picketers.

    Well considering somebody screwed up back in the 90's that prevent them from getting royalties through the sales of videos and DVD, they're not going to back down when it comes to having their stories being shown on the internet.

    From Tim Ryan's blog:

    "The writer’s strike has claimed another victim. ABC/Disney execs announced that the DVD release parties on Lanai for Lost’s third season and Pirates of the Caribbean III have been cancelled. The event was to be held Nov. 30 and Dec. 1. Meanwhile, production of Lost will shut down tomorrow, Nov. 21, when the last of eight new scripts have been filmed… Meanwhile, Carlton Cuse, Lost’s showrunner, has returned to work to do post-production work on the episodes completed so far for the fourth season… Lost actors Harold Perrineau (Michael) and Cynthia Watros (Libby) who were cut out of the show in season three will reappear episode eight… Lost is shutting down its Iwilei staging area where the production trucks and other gear were stored for the Fisherman’s Wharf area in Ala Moana…"

    Looks like with 8 episodes in the bag, they'll have enough to make it through the February sweeps, if ABC sticks to the schedule. May be good for "Lost" as it will be one of the few shows that may have original episodes while the others that premiered for the fall will probably be out of episodes to show. However if the strike lasts a long time, there won't be a 16-consecutive new episode season as promised earlier by ABC. Perhaps 2 half-seasons?

    I saw a reference somewhere to 8 eps this "season," then 8+16 for 24 in the 2008-2009 "season," then the 2010 final season with 16 as planned. But, of course, the best laid plans . . .

    Exclamation Re: "Lost" - Season 4: News & Sightings

    Last week, ABC announced that "LOST" was moving to Thursday nights, and that the Season 4 Premiere would air on Jan. 31, 2008. Of course, that made everyone wonder what was to become of the "Sunset on the Beach" advance screening, which was originally said to be set for Feb. 2... and that was before the writers' strike.

    Well, a friend today passed along the news that the beach premiere is still on, and that the new date is Jan. 26.

    I haven't been watching ABC latey but I did on Wednesday night and every so often a promo would air saying that Lost will do a 2 hour season premire on Jan 31, 2008.

    Also had scenes containing Locke, Jack, Kate and Ben.

    This is just a guess - I have no knowledge of what they plan - but if I recall correctly, they have done this before with a one-hour re-cap show ("new" because it's re-edited, already broadcast scenes), followed by one of the eight original shows for season 4. They have called this a two hour premier.

    I think you're right. There will definitely be a 'recap show' preceding the premiere, which airs at 9 p.m. EST. Since a new ABC legal drama is scheduled for its big premiere the same night at 10 p.m. EST, it looks like the "two hour premiere" is half rerun.

    I actually like most of the recap specials, though. And after a break as long as the one we've had, it can't hurt to have a refresher.

    Right now, the web is abuzz with ABC's official teaser trailer for Season 4. (This after the trailer that actually screened in some movie theaters on the mainland.) It's fantastic, at least to the show's hardcore fans. Certainly got my heart racing! There are, of course, quick glimpses of scenes that are technically spoilers, but... if you want something to whet your appetite, check it out.

    Hey PZ, that trailer showed in movie theaters here in Hawaii, too, not just the mainland. We saw it last weekend at Regal Theaters (Pearl Highlands) when we went to see National Treasure: Book of Secrets.

    OH NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    Gosh, I was so looking forward to it!!! The kids and I just did a marathon of Season 3 over the weekend and were so stoked to get a preview of Season 4 before the rest of the world and to see some of the actors - even from a distance.

    Poopie. Premiere would've been tonight, huh? This sucks. I'm like seriously bummed over the cancellation. That's the one time out of the entire year that my parents are willing to trudge into Waikiki with me and now that's scrapped, heh. Sigh, maybe next season

    I'm glad I decided against planning my trip back home around the premiere date.

    I'm stoked to find out who got off the island (other than Jack and Kate) and who stayed on the island (other than, and this is an assumption, Locke). I'm trying soooooooooo hard not to look at spoilers.

    Sawyer looked sooo purty on the cover of my TV Guide this last week. Though my kane much preferred the picture of Adriana Lima inside of the TV Guide.
    I'm disgusted and repulsed, and I can't look away.

    Did you guys see Ryan's blog?

    http://www.hawaiiweblog.com/2008/01/...wood-gets-lost

    The folks at Planet Hollywood in Waikiki (and their friends at Infinite Productions) have stepped up to give “LOST” fans a place to gather and enjoy the show together. So if you’re a local fan who loves company, or a visiting fan in need of a place to be on Thursday night, head on over to 2155 Kalakaua Ave. (between Beachwalk and Lewers streets) and celebrate the long-awaited launch of Season Four in style. Validated parking is $3.
    Even better news? Planet Hollywood will host a ‘LOST’ viewing party every week!

    This isn't really news, or sightings, but I just watched the final mobisode on vcast and OMG. I'm in a state of omg. If "omg" had a face, it would be mine right now. I won't spoil it if you dont have vcast or look for it elsewhere, but, omg. imo, it's better than the find815 game. I wub Sam and all, but this takes the cake.

    (If you haven't watched any of the Missing Pieces clips, the ABC web site has all but the final one - it usually appears a few days after it premieres on vcast.)

    Thursday cannot come fast enough!

    Yeah that mobisode is nuts. I didn't think any of the last few mobisodes would be nearly as interesting or "important" as the Room 23 piece, but damnnnn. Opens up SO many more questions I can barely even keep track of how many need to be solved by the end of the show now
