Lost | Latest From Kristin: 3×07 Review And Spoiler

Part of “Old Info And News”

season 3 photoshoot puple tshirt elizabeth mitchell (3).jpgFrom Jefferson: Lost!
I’ve seen the first episode coming back. It is good. And when I say it is good, that is the understatement of the year. It is most definitely my favorite episode so far this season, and officially cements Elizabeth Mitchell as a rock-solid Lostie who shall not be done away with (Damon, don’t you dare think of it). But the best part? The flashback includes an evil doctor by the name of Burke! Sorry, I just found that funny. Especially because Lost’s Dr. Burke also realizes that words uttered in the heat of the moment can have serious repercussions. (I’ll tell you more about the ep in the spoiler section below.)

From Tracey: New Lost ep—spill! I want to know everything.
No. You don’t. Trust me! Like I said, it really is the best episode of the season so far, and you’ll want to watch this one spoiler-free, my friend. Still, I will gently tease a few happenings to wet your whistle. Here’s what I can tell you:

Lost 3×07 | EW’s Review And Spoilers

Part of “Old Info And News”

Review (sort of) and some spoilers about Lost 3×07:

season 3 photoshoot puple tshirt elizabeth mitchell (3).jpg‘Lost’ (S3): Finding the plot in “Not in Portland”
The Doc tempts wayward viewers with four juicy teasers about the brand-new episode, ”Not in Portland.”

Yes. And Yes.

For the past week, dozens of you have sent me e-mails asking the same two urgent questions. To paraphrase, those questions go something like this:

”I’ve heard that ABC has been sending out screeners of the next episode of Lost, ‘Not In Portland.’ Did you get one? And have you seen it?!”

And my answers are Yes. And Yes.

Actually, it’s ”HELL yes!”

I’ve watched ”Not In Portland” THREE TIMES now. Usually in cases where I’ve been lucky enough to get this kind of sneak peek, I would devote this space a review and a series of cryptic teases. For a number of reasons, I’m going to refrain from the review. Passing critical judgments on TV shows is technically not my department here at EW. That said, let the fact that I’ve watched the episode three times in less than 24 hours tell you something.

LOST | Nice Mention

Part of “Old Info And News”

Lost in ABC’s Serial Bowl – Matt Roush

season 3 photoshoot puple tshirt elizabeth mitchell (3).jpgSo far, I’m on board with everything ABC is doing with and saying about Lost these days. As I’ve said before, I think the network is right to move the show to 10 pm/ET when it returns from hiatus on February 7—gets it out of the way of American Idol, provides a solid lead-in to the late local news, which the affiliates care about (although history tells us that many of the fans will ditch the TV to go straight to their message boards and fan sites), and keeps the network from worrying about what poor loser show will next have to follow Lost and fail to live up to expectations.

But what really jazzes me was ABC entertainment chief Steve McPherson’s suggestion at ABC’s TCA day over the weekend that next season, Lost will air in 24 style. Start to finish without a break, so we won’t again be frustrated by something like this fall’s six-season episode pod that, especially where our captive characters were concerned, felt like it was treading water more than usual. (Still, if only for introducing us to the lovely and mysterious Juliet, who will be the focus of the first episode back, I forgive the shows its flaws, as usual.) If this means keeping Lost out of the fall lineup, delaying its premiere until the midpoint of the season to ensure an uninterrupted stream of episodes, so be it. It works for 24. Why not for the other most creatively thrilling show on TV?

season 3 photoshoot puple tshirt elizabeth mitchell.jpgOn Wednesday night, ABC delivered screeners of the return episode of Lost, which is to air on Feb. 7, to TV critics here in Pasadena. The disc came in an unmarked brown envelope …

In an attached cover letter, the network says: “We kindly ask that you use your discretion in reviewing this show by not revealing any plot details that contain spoilers,” and of course I’ll respect that.
Within those confines, here’s a glimpse at the next Lost hour:

LOST | Lovely Mention

Part of “Old Info And News”

season 3 photoshoot puple tshirt elizabeth mitchell (3).jpgQuestion: Why do you downplay Heroes as uneven but celebrate the very uneven Lost? While overall I like Heroes, I agree that some story lines are working better than others, and some actors haven’t hit their stride. There are touching moments of brilliance and moments that are contrived. But I don’t mind watching the whole episode without turning the channel, because overall it’s a fun show. As for Lost, I was a huge fan the first season, but I can’t watch it at this point. It’s become even more improbable than I would ever have imagined a show about plane-crash survivors to be — sometimes I think Gilligan’s Island was more realistic. I like the characters and the actors, but the plotting is cumbersome and the dialogue can be brilliant and terrible in the same 20 minutes. If I had to pick a show to watch straight through, it would be Heroes, because the overall impact of a show is a better measure of quality than a handful of good or bad moments.— Olivia

Matt Roush: You ask me why I prefer Lost over Heroes? It’s just a fact that I do. Sorry. I love Lost, even though I took a bunch of abuse from fans for admitting that even I got tired of watching Sawyer get slapped around for six weeks this fall. (But I am fascinated by Juliet and can’t wait to find out more about her and the Others.) I do not yet love Heroes, although there are elements and scattered characters in it that I do admire and enjoy. It is no surprise to me that some early Lost fans have gotten fed up, but I’m not there yet. I find the characters, the writing, the storytelling framework and the production values to still be terrifically effective and entertaining. Is it perfect? No. What show is? But Gilligan’s Island? Get real. Even at its best, Heroes is much more of a mixed bag to me, but one that I’m glad (and as with Lost, very surprised) to see be so instantly popular. But I never regard it with the same passion I bring to Lost, even when that show frustrates and mystifies me.

Lost Review | “She’s a keeper”

Part of “Old Info And News”

season 3 photoshoot puple tshirt elizabeth mitchell (3).jpgMore ABC Comings and Goings

The one undeniable positive from Lost’s season so far is the introduction of Elizabeth Mitchell as Juliet. So enigmatic a femme fatale, with questionable motives in her secret allegiance with Jack against Ben (or is it just another trick). She’s a keeper. So, if he survives Jack’s surgery, is Ben. Through them, I hope to learn what I need to know (for now) about the Others. But not at the expense of being kept so long from the other castaways.

Lost | Ask Ausiello With Damon And Carlton

Part of “Old Info And News”

season 3 photoshoot puple tshirt elizabeth mitchell (3).jpgPersonally, I’d be happy if the show just featured Matthew Fox, Michael Emerson and Elizabeth Mitchell every week.
Damon: We’re going to spin them off. It’s going to be called “Ben & Friends.”

OK. Another reader, Baude, wants to know when we’re going to find out what happened to those kids who were abducted.
Damon: I think you’ll begin to get a real sense of the answer to that question in about the second episode back after the break — a very real sense.

Does it tie in at all to the fact that Juliet’s a fertility doctor?
Damon: I think that’s a reasonable connection.

Golden Globe StatueA snapshot of thesps who had noteworthy perfs this year

Elizabeth Mitchell, ‘Lost’
The Others are a creepy bunch, no doubt, but Mitchell’s so sly, so deliciously deceptive, we’re not quite sure what to believe anymore. Is she really trying to help Jack by convincing him to off Michael Emerson in a purposely botched spinal surgery, or was that part of the master plan all along? Only the writers know, but with “Lost” characters having shorter lifespans all the time, it would be nice if Mitchell stayed around for a while.

Review | ‘Lost’ Has Puzzling Season Premiere

Part of “Old Info And News”

season 3 photoshoot puple tshirt elizabeth mitchell (3).jpg“Lost” settled a few questions _ sort of _ while posing many more on the premiere of its third season Wednesday. While the ABC mystical adventure series focused on three members (Jack, Kate and Sawyer) of the stranded community, the rest of the group (many unaccounted for after last season’s finale) were unseen and unaddressed during the hour.

The episode began at the compound of the Others _ a normal-looking collection of homes in a clearing in the middle of the jungle. During a book club meeting, of all things, the participants experienced what seemed to be an earthquake and then watched Oceanic flight 815 descend overhead with a thunderous roar. The plane broke up before crashing elsewhere on the mysterious island. It was a flashback to the pivotal event that had launched the series.

Back to the present: After being taken prisoner in the last episode, Jack (Matthew Fox), Sawyer (Josh Holloway) and Kate (Evangeline Lilly) awoke separately, each in a different type of captivity.

Kate was taken to a meeting with the Other who had gone by the name of Henry Gale (Michael Emerson). He handcuffed her but also served her a nice breakfast.

“Kate, the next two weeks are going to be very unpleasant,” he said evenly.

Meanwhile, a young man held captive across from Sawyer managed to pick his own lock, then open Sawyer’s cell. As an alarm announced “Subject Escaped,” Sawyer took off. He was quickly recaptured.

A lovely member of the Others (new cast member Elizabeth Mitchell) approached Jack in his cell. Growing more and more agitated, Jack sparred with the calm, comforting Juliet.
