Really enjoyed the SYFY limited podcast series Through the Looking Glass: A LOST Retrospective, which celebrates 15 years since the premiere of Lost in 2004. Hosted by Tara Bennett and Maureen Ryan—two television writers who covered the show's original run—the podcast consists of six episodes that examine Lost from different perspectives, including how it revolutionized … Continue reading They went back! On a ‘Lost’ retrospective podcast
I don't know how but Jenny and I jumped back into Parks and Recreation again in season 5 and went all the way to the end. This time through the finale, "One Last Ride", I saw how much it had in common with the Lost series finale. *Spoilers ahead* I've written about Lost and Parks … Continue reading Final touches in ‘Lost’ and ‘Parks and Recreation’
https://twitter.com/johnaugust/statuses/422816417436536832 If you click the link from John August's above tweet, you'll learn, as I did recently, that Disney World used to have a wildlife attraction on their massive property called Discovery Island, which was abandoned in 1999 and left to be overrun by wilderness. Shane Perez, a self-described "urban explorer" and photographer, apparently snuck … Continue reading Dharma Island
There's been some debate recently about whether binge-watching a TV show on DVD or online is good or bad. While I must confess I have gone on a few TV benders, usually with the intention of catching up on a series before its most recent season premiered, there's something about watching a show live on … Continue reading To Binge Or Not To Binge?
Looks like Mad Men is getting the LOST treatment, and I couldn't be happier about it. The deal between Mad Men showrunner Matthew Weiner and AMC will end the series after the sixth season premieres. Like the deal that gave LOST a definitive end-date a few years ago, this new deal for Mad Men will be … Continue reading Mad World

Thou shalt offer theories upon the conclusion of the episode. 5. Thou shalt not use the bathroom during the show and … Continue reading The Ten Commandments Of Watching ‘LOST’ In A Group
Somehow I'm not surprised by this bit of news. At least McClellan is willing to admit he was wrong about something. In other, happier news: Lost finale tomorrow! I have high hopes for another mind-blower. Don't let me down, writers. The finale of The Office was uninspiring, so give me something to love on TV … Continue reading Great Scott And Last ‘Lost’
It seems like after the writers' strike-induced hiatus, LOST got a whole lot better and The Office got a whole lot worse. LOST's entire 4th season has been, overall, pretty fantastic. They've taken a new yet exciting direction with the implementation of flash-forwards and they now have an end date for the series, so they're … Continue reading Lost Vs. The Office
Here's what Natalie thinks about the season premiere of LOST last night. I think I agree with her.
I want to go on the record about something. In the last few years, fans of the television show LOST have debated back and forth the mysterious -- solved and unsolved -- of the island and its inhabitants. Some say the writers have left way too many things unanswered for too long. They see that … Continue reading On The Record
