comic con. apparently everythings been reset. idk.
also it doesn't start for SIX MONTHS don't do this to me
there are some more announcements on wikipedia. INTERESTING
there's a list of some older returning cast members that suggests maybe it isn't.
big roundup here: http://uk.eonline.com/uberblog/watch_with_kristin/b135013_everything_you_need_know_from_lost.html
if they just re-run season 1 as the finale.
but i did just read The Third Policeman and it sounds quite similar, a version of hell repeating itself ad infinitum.
that book was featured in season 2. desmond was reading it in the hatch.
my copy actually has a quote from a Lost scriptwriter on the back. which does offend the snob in me - "no! it's a highly-respected modernist work in league with Beckett and Joyce!!"
they basically said the explosion at the end of last season worked, loads of people you hadnt seen since season 1 will be back and that season 6 will be a lot like season 1 was but without flashbacks.
i really hope this isn't true because it creates a fucking retardo time paradox and that would probably ruin it for me on many levels.
hopefully mr eko will make an appearance.
there's a quote about jacob having never appeared in a different form as well.
kate is a porn star
ben and his twin pee wee heman ride a tandem bike
I have six months to catch up and all this talk of time travel and fast forwarding sounds hilarious.
yeah, do it.
dom monaghan made an appearance at the end, just waving etc. this was written on his hand: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_RrObyQ3XzcY/Sm2Wi_K5L1I/AAAAAAAAvhQ/CCrmOwSBYBQ/s400/dom_alive.jpg
whether it will ACTUALLY all be reset, i really don't know. cast rumours and the videos, etc certainly suggest it - though, like said above, i dunno if it's just a piss-take, "what if" style thing, tricking viewers into thinking one thing...
However, I seem to remember the powers that be definitely stating that they don't want to start everything over - that it wouldnt be right & it would "cheat the fans" back in podcats before the season ended (might not be right here); this sentiment was echoed by jorge garcia (hurley) at comic con (in a pretty lame, obviously-scripted bit with the writers); so the powers that be are obviously aware of the negative reaction if they went in that direction.
i think they're going to kind-of go down that route but it wont be like its fully resetting or something. i think the theme of "fate" will play a big part.
i dont really know what i think, if they did. i kinda have to respect their balls if they went for it, its an incredibly bold move and one that will be almost impossible to execute well, but after being pretty embarrassing with my dedication to the show with over 100 episodes i guess i'm just going to have to trust them.
damon lindelof did come out with "just trust us" at comic-con...
so, everythings been reset then. hm.
If it turns out that they're just stuck in time then that's pathetic. Also, If I was Stephen King I'd be preparing my plagiarism case: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Langoliers
i might... MIGHT watch it again. MGITH
