2010 Soap Opera Digest Article

This is from a Soap Opera Digest’s article about Lost cast who also worked on soap operas.

ELIZABETH MITCELL | From 1994-1995 she was LOVING‘s Dinah Lee Mayberry, who married Curtis, her ex-lover’s son. She won Lost fans’ hearts (and, ultimately, Sawyer’s) as doomed fertility doc Juliet Burke from 2006-10.

When Liz started playing Dinah Lee she was divorced from Curtis and had a relationship with Trucker.

Beside that, it’s pretty accurate especially about winning Lost fans’ hearts. 😀

We found the scan on this blog.

Lost 3×18 “D.O.C.” | AV Club Review

///We noticed that someone at AV Club was rewatching Lost and posted some reviews about the show. We’re going to post here all the parts about Juliet and Elizabeth.///

This is the last review they posted. They didn’t write anything else for the other seasons.

EMFC_LOST_3x18_000000003401.jpg“D.O.C.” (originally aired 04/25/2007)

[…]it’s easy to imagine “D.O.C.” as a potential Juliet episode given her central role, but it’s Sun’s perspective that is most crucial, and therefore frames the events accordingly.

Of course, now it’s a different kind of ticking time bomb. “D.O.C.” gives us our most concrete information yet about Juliet’s pregnancy research—nine women have died in her care, the Staff station existed as a hospice of sorts during their final days, and no woman has reached their third trimester. We also get confirmation of the island’s impact on sperm count, offering scientific—albeit magically-enhanced—evidence to support Jin’s claim to the baby. And yet the Juliet side of the story struggles a bit on rewatch, as her actions are very consciously framed as suspicious. Why did she need to put her hand over Sun’s mouth and kidnap her in the middle of the night? Why did she need to be so opaque as to where they were going? Why did the Staff station still have to be so murdery with the flickering lights? All of it is there to make us think that Juliet is leading Sun into a trap, which you know is wrong if you’ve already seen the show and remember what happens from this point on. The episode itself even works against this, with Juliet’s “I hate you” after finishing her tape-recorded message to Ben reinforcing that she still resents him and is still closer to a hero and a villain. But it’s tough to put yourself back in the moment with the Juliet character’s uncertainty as compared to another step in Sun’s emotional journey.

Well it’s easy to answer to those questions.  Obviously it was done that way because the viewers needed to be suspicious about Juliet, but that it doesn’t mean it didn’t have also a diegetic meaning: Juliet basically needed to kidnap Sun in the middle of the night because of course she had to leave a report for Ben and didn’t want anybody else around to do that.

Lost 3×16 “One Of Us” | AV Club Review

///We noticed that someone at AV Club was rewatching Lost and posted some reviews about the show. We’re going to post here all the parts about Juliet and Elizabeth.///

This is one of our fav episodes (obviously).  This scene with Ben is one of the best of the entire show:

Video

 

Go at the minute 1.10 of the clip. The power of this scene is indescribable. Elizabeth conveys so many different emotions in this. We love how she goes from being very upset to that high rage and then desperation.

There are so many wonderful scenes in this episodes like the one when Ben make her see Rachel and Julian on the screen….the joy in Juliet’s eyes and then the pain of being there against her will… it is impossible not to feel for her and not to love her…  seriously. Elizabeth is magnificent! We’ve just rewatched them all

We still wish we had another ending for Juliet, we love Lost so much, we loved the finale, but we still think that Juliet deserved better.

Anyway here’s the review of Lost 3×16 “One Of Us”. Oh we wrote a few more comments after the review.

About Liz:

2007 was a year where the Emmys actually revealed the Top 10 in each category, and somehow Elizabeth Mitchell failed to even crack the Top 10 in Supporting Actress, which is just absurd. She’s good throughout the season, but she goes through such a range of emotions here, putting her scene in the mirror in the premiere into dynamic context.

Old Article About The Emmy Snub

We’ve just came across this article about Liz not getting an Emmy nomination for Lost 3×16 “One Of Us”.

We know too well how things work with awards, there’re so many interests behind (starting with the Network’s ones).
If they gave the recognition to who actually deserves it more, Liz would not know where to sleep, because her house would be full of awards. Her talent is just so incredible! <3

Anyway it’s just nice reading how people praise Elizabeth…. she’s mesmerizing!

The Leak: Emmy Top 10s in Acting Categories Emerge

My Thoughts: Where the hell is Elizabeth Mitchell for Lost? Her performance as Juliet was the one that was supposed to actually have a chance at a nomination for the series, and she doesn’t make the Top 10 over S. Epatha Merkerson who barely does anything on Law & Order anymore? Le sigh. I’m glad to see Patricia Wettig get her due, and I like that Kate Walsh made it, but not over my beloved Mitchell. Boourns, Emmy voters.

Lost 3×15 “Left Behind” | AV Club Review

///We noticed that someone at AV Club was rewatching Lost and posted some reviews about the show. We’re going to post here all the parts about Juliet and Elizabeth.///

EMFC_LOST_3x15_05099.jpg

This may not be one of Lost’s largest or longest mysteries, but it’s a complex one, and the end of the episode offers a great sense of the complicated character dynamics that result from Juliet’s inclusion. We could reduce it to a love rhombus, sure, but the way Juliet’s presence plays out in “Left Behind” creates effective conflict that works in conjunction with Hurley tricking Sawyer into being a leader to place the unity and cohesion of the castaways a central topic heading into the season’s third and final act.

Stray observations:

  • Continuing the series’ tradition of fights taking place in the rain, Kate and Juliet’s throwdown delivers.
  • “Did he say that to you?”—the way Kate questions Juliet about her understanding of Jack’s motives is interesting, given that he never actually said it, although it’s more to set up the love rhombus than suggest any deeper theoretical understanding of what it means to really “know”s someone. But that latter reading remains, given Juliet’s “facts” vs. Kate’s “lived experience.”

Lost 3×09 “Stranger In A Strange Land” | AV Club Review

///We noticed that someone at AV Club was rewatching Lost and posted some reviews about the show. We’re going to post here all the parts about Juliet and Elizabeth.///

EMFC_LOST_3x09_04035.jpg“Stranger In A Strange Land” (originally aired 02/21/2007)

I realize we can’t entirely strip an episode of context: this hour had to follow the time-bending “Flashes Before Your Eyes” and doesn’t even feature Desmond or Charlie, and is technically a direct follow-up to the tremendous “Not In Portland” and almost completely sidelines its best character in Juliet. It’s as if the writers were on the road to getting the season started, but then realized they left the stove on back on the other island, requiring them to make up a reason to go back. Jack remains important to this story, but the episode works too hard to design a plot around him being left behind when a subtler set of scenes would have sufficed.

While departing from the Hydra offers promise for the Others’ future, the episode itself offers nothing tangible, making sure its small gains—a stronger bond between Jack and Juliet, who are now in it together—are shrouded by nonsense to no particular end.

In retrospect, though, some of this works better than it would have at the time. Now that I know Juliet better, her struggles here resonate more, even if the episode doesn’t do much but turn her into a damsel in distress (particularly in those shots of the meeting we don’t understand, as she peeks out the door in terror).

Honest question: does Juliet’s brand ever come up at any point after this? Was it just there as a thematic link to Jack’s tattoos? It just ends up feeling so random and disconnected from anything else we learn about the Others.

Lost 3×07 “Not In Portland” | AV Club Review

///We noticed that someone at AV Club was rewatching Lost and posted some reviews about the show. We’re going to post here all the parts about Juliet and Elizabeth.///

EMFC_LOST_3x07_000000004410.jpgThis is actually a review of “Flashes Before Your Eyes” but the author reflects on Juliet’s flashbacks in “Not In Portland”.

Lost was consistently vague about whether we could understand its flashbacks as memories the characters are distinctly reflecting on in the context of the episode itself. In “Not In Portland,” for example, we could surmise that Juliet would logically be reflecting on the steps that brought her to the island after Ben gives her the opportunity to return home, and would have likely been thinking about those fateful events throughout this tying process. However, the show rarely makes clear a one-to-one relationship between the transitioning scenes in and out of the flashbacks and the flashbacks themselves, meaning the flashbacks function less as explicit recollections and more as a selective sequence of events that have value to character in the way they are valued—either directly or indirectly—by characters.

Lost 3×07 “Not In Portland” | AV Club Review

///We noticed that someone at AV Club was rewatching Lost and posted some reviews about the show. We’re going to post here all the parts about Juliet and Elizabeth.///

EMFC_LOST_3x07_000000002604.jpg“Not In Portland” (originally aired 02/07/2007)

The third season opened on Juliet, in a scene we first presumed was a flashback introducing her character, but was revealed to be a different perspective on the plane crash that started it all. It set up the third season as the season where we’d finally learn who the Others were, and how exactly they fit within the island’s ecosystem.

“Not in Portland” opens on Juliet, in a scene we first presume—both through Juliet’s initial appearance on a beach, and through Ethan’s appearance in a hallway—to be on the island, but is subsequently revealed to be her first proper flashback. On the one hand, it continues the season’s resistance to returning to the settlement it started with, obscuring that particular piece of the Others’ history. However, on the other hand, it signals the show committing to the tentative fleshing out of the Others as real characters that began in the first six episodes, but which the show held from the audience in favor of mystery and obfuscation.
