Review: The Others shift the tone on `Lost’s’ island

Part of “Old Info And News”

emmy-awardNot coincidentally, this newfound clarity has coalesced during a season in which Michael Emerson and Elizabeth Mitchell have made “Lost” deeper, better, richer. Emerson, who joined the show last season, is Ben, a bug-eyed Machiavellian leader with an elfin face and shades of L. Ron Hubbard’s cult power. Mitchell, who made her debut this year, is his reluctant double-agent, a willowy beauty who’s infiltrated the main castaways’ beach for the somewhat-stated purpose of stealing their fertile women for the somewhat-stated purpose of populating the island so that L. Ron Ben can continue his important “work.”
Their pas de deux, a mixture of deceit and empathic gesturing, is the engine driving the show’s current season.
Did the writers already have big plans for Emerson, or did they see the way he stole a scene from Matthew Fox and Terry O’Quinn last year simply by eating Cheerios?
Mitchell was the star of the best episode this season, during which we learned how she got to the island, drinking a sedative and climbing into a submarine, surfacing some hours later on an island paradise.

‘Lost’ Set For Three Nore Years

ABC hit expires in 2010

In a potentially paradigm-shifting play, ABC has agreed to let the producers of “Lost” set an expiration date for the series — three years in the future.

Skein will now wrap after the production of 48 additional episodes that will be divided into three, shortened 16-episode seasons. Final episode — the show’s 119th — will air during the 2009-10 season.

In conjunction with the advance order, “Lost” showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have inked hefty new multi-year overall deals with ABC Television Studio to continue with the series until the end. Duo had made setting a wrap date for the show a condition for staying.

Review: “Elizabeth Mitchell Has Shone This Season”

Part of “Old Info And News”

emmy-awardQuestion: I know it’s a little early for Emmy talk, but I was so horrified by Lost’s snub last year that I can’t stop thinking about it. What do you think Lost’s chances are at this year’s Emmys? I think Elizabeth Mitchell, Henry Ian Cusick and Michael Emerson all have a good chance, as well as the show in the drama category. Also, I heard last year’s snub was due to the producers’ submitting episodes poorer in quality, such as “Man of Science, Man of Faith,” to the nomination panel. I hope the Emmy voters correct last year’s grievous wrongdoing and nominate Lost this year. What do you think?— John

Matt Roush: I think I admire your faith in the show and in Emmy voters. Frankly, I’d be shocked if the Emmys reverse course to show much if any love toward a show whose reputation took several hits this year: in the ratings and in media coverage over that ill-conceived opening “pod” of episodes. I agree that Elizabeth Mitchell in particular has shone this season, but given the richness and variety of TV drama these days, I can’t help but think Lost’s breakthrough freshman season (when it won best drama) is going to be its sole trip to the big party. I’d love to be wrong, but I think (speaking in island terms) that ship may have sailed for good.

Review: “Emmy-worthy Elizabeth Mitchell”

Part of “Old Info And News”

emmy-awardWith that “surprise” ending behind us, moving on to Lost, with a powerhouse climax of its own. The bulk of the episode was spent in Sun’s head, with another magnificent performance by Yunjin Kim. She was obsessed with shame: the shame Jin felt over his parentage (we met his mom, a blackmailing prostitute); the shame Sun felt about her own corrupt father and how she was responsible for putting her husband deeper in his debt; and mostly, the shame she felt for having cheated on Jin, a worry compounded by her surprise pregnancy. Thanks to Juliet (more great work by Emmy-worthy Elizabeth Mitchell), Sun learned the island can increase even an infertile man’s sperm count by as much as five times, and the date of conception was calculated to having taken place on the island. That’s good news/bad news. The good: Jin is the father, no shame necessary. The bad: Women who conceive on the island never survive to the third trimester. Juliet’s and Sun’s looks of joy during the ultrasound scene were a marvel to behold, which only added to the impact when Juliet filed her secret and sinister report to Ben, promising to get samples from the other female castaways. As she signed off with an “I hate you,” I couldn’t have loved this enigmatic character more. But can Juliet save Sun, or will she lose her 10th patient?

An excellent question to ponder, along with the bombshell dropped by the mysterious multi-lingual parachutist, who told Hurley in the episode’s final moments that, to the outside world, Oceanic Flight 815 was considered lost with everyone aboard dead. “They found the plane. There were no survivors. They were all dead.”

Time to rev up those “Lost as purgatory”/No Exit theories. Next week: the return of Locke. Yay!

Lost 3×18 Reviews

season 3 photoshoot puple tshirt elizabeth mitchell (3).jpgBack on the island, I was so proud of Sun for getting all in Juliet’s grill. The woman deserves some answers! Excellent acting by both actresses, of course. I never once could tell whether Juliet really did care about Sun’s health, or if she was faking the whole thing in her magnificently three-faced way. I mean, it was obvious she was going to be reporting some sort of stats to Ben, but I still bought that she was really upset to see those women die and didn’t want to give Sun the same sentence. And when she said “I hate you” into the tape recorder, it seemed to indicate that she’s still just working for him because he’s either promised her the next boat out or promised to hurt her sister if she doesn’t

Sun’s a Smarty: I know it looks like Juliet is playing Sun, but there was something in Sun’s “thank you” that made me think Sun’s not buying Juliet’s BS. Is there any reason Sun couldn’t double-back to the medical hatch and do some prying of her own? Take Kate and a gun and have a field day tearin’ the place apart!

What Lies Ahead: Ben’s getting a flashback very soon, and it’s filled with so many jaw-dropping reveals, you might want to forewarn your downstairs neighbors there’ll be a few thuds on their ceiling. Also, Juliet just might be good after all. Why? She hates Ben! She told us last night—and something tells me that someday soon, she’ll get to tell him, too.

Cult Times Magazine Interview: The Webs of Mitchell

April 25, 2007

The Webs of Mitchell
Truth and lies come easily to a member of the Others, so what are Juliet’s secrets?
We ask her alter ego, Elizabeth Mitchell

Back in 1960s, Gilligan’s Island was home sweet home for seven reluctant castaways, including the beautiful Mary-Ann and Ginger.

These days, that show’s much more dramatic big brother Lost also boats its fair share of island-bound lovelies, among them Juliet. She is one of the Others, a group of mysterious and not-so-friendly islanders who have made life increasingly difficult and dangerous for the survivors of Oceanic Flight 815, especially Jack, Kate and Sawyer. Juliet, who is a fertility doctor by profession, has her own agenda when it comes to her role on the island.

She is a living, breathing conundrum, and a treat for actress Elizabeth Mitchell to play.
