For a show that "lost" 5 million viewers this season.

Action figures! (Name the song, bitches...)

Tell McFarlane to return to his roots with comic-books again.

that Lost is going to take a 13 week hiatus, because get this...they don't want long spaces betweeen episodes. They LOST 5 million viewers this premiere. How many more do you think they'll lose taking a 1/3rd of a year off?

Granted, it would have been better to have started the season in January, 24-style, to avoid repeats altogether, but I don't mind having all of the show's repeats crammed into one 2 1/2 month period intead of the maddening, start-and-stop programming schedule of last season.
Oct. 10, 2006, 10:02 a.m. CST
LOL, you make it sound as if it's studio gossip!<BR>Hasn't Lost's S3 schedule been common knowledge for months?!?
Oct. 10, 2006, 10:46 a.m. CST
They announced the schedule plan shortly after the end of S2 in direct response to the folks bitching about the seemingly random repeats in the S2 schedule. So instead of repeating that schedule, they planned a 6 episode arc to kick off the season, and then they come back next year to roll through the rest of the season non-stop. This has been the plan since Spring. But you knew that Purgatori, didn't you? Never let reality get in the way of trolling...

ABC will fill the slot with a new series, Day Break, with Taye Diggs. It's going to be - wait for it - a serial drama! Because you can never have too many of those.
Oct. 10, 2006, 11:26 a.m. CST
WHY?! Because she's in her fucking bikini? Are people that desperate to jack off? WTF A Sayid figure would have slayed compared to a fucking Shannon one.
Oct. 10, 2006, 12:44 p.m. CST
And no I didn't realize because my brain was reduced to mush from the weighty drama that was the season 2 finale. Did you catch that sarcasm, or do I need to throw it softer? So this doofy idea that they are still pursuing after losing a chunk of viewership sounds even more ignorant knowing that they had this planned earlier. Why not just take a cue from one of the still highest rated dramas on TV, 24, and have a non-stop season and just start it in January? Oh and I agree Shigeru, WTF with Shannon? Why not a Sawyer or Sayid, or hell even Jin or Sun? Better yet, an Ethan figure would have been a neat addition.
Oct. 10, 2006, 1:13 p.m. CST
Though as much as I'm with Shigeru, I'm quite surprised to hear her's is among the first wave, how long's she been dead now? Of course, as little sense it makes in that scheme of things, I'm still in love with Shannon so I'm perfectly happy to have a doll of her ;) heh

That's what pisses me off about McFarlane figures. How about some damn articulation, please?
Oct. 10, 2006, 2:25 p.m. CST
That's why these are statues and not action figures. They're meant for display, I think.
Oct. 10, 2006, 2:36 p.m. CST
I'm willing to bet that alot of the viewers lost were because of the shitty schedule last year and the serial format of the show, not the shows quality. I know so many people that just couldn't keep up with it and so they are waiting for the DVDs. Problem is then that they then never catch the show again on tv unless they hustle through the DVDs. One of the problems with Lost is that it's not a show you can jump into easily. And if people are leaving simply because they're frustrated with the show, then it's their loss. Besides, 5 Million people lost doesn't mean that the show is in danger of being cancelled. Not even close. And, if all the shows started in january, there'd be nothing to watch in the fall. If this arc wraps up with some sort of big event, it won't be a big deal that there's some sort of break... it'll almost be like a mini-season finale. I'd prefer this way to the stop-start of last season.
Oct. 10, 2006, 2:43 p.m. CST
So please lets not whip out that word.
Oct. 10, 2006, 4:29 p.m. CST
People people, this is ONLY the first wave. On the Macfarlane site, they say aa second wave, to hit next year, WILL include Sawyer, Jin, Michael, Walt(with Vincent), Boone, Libby, Ana-Lucia and ETHAN!!! Just give it time people. They probably had to pick 6 to knock out right away. I guess Claire, Sun and Sayid will have to wait for Series 3.
Oct. 10, 2006, 5:08 p.m. CST
I quit a couple of episodes into season 2, TOO FUCKING RIDICULOUS!!!
Oct. 10, 2006, 5:17 p.m. CST
i may check this out, although it's sounds liked it's sure to be packed :p
Oct. 10, 2006, 5:42 p.m. CST
didn't fit into the universe the created with season 1, but you're entitled to your opinion. It wasn't perfect, but I thought S2 did a great job building on S1 and taking it into new directions.
Oct. 10, 2006, 7:28 p.m. CST
I live in New York so I'm already ready.
Oct. 10, 2006, 9:04 p.m. CST
Wave two has only been officially confirmed so far to include Mr Eko, Sawyer, Jin and Sun, and is due out next May.
Oct. 10, 2006, 11:27 p.m. CST
Because these figures are awesome. Oh, and season 2 was great, aside from three episodes with kinda boring flashbacks (and yes, 'Dave' sucked. It did. Oh well.) Season 3 has been great so far, and as for losing viewers...I personally know five people who are watching this season who never watched before except from my DVDs that I let them borrow.

who have quit watching. Numbers are down, and deservedly so.
Oct. 11, 2006, 3:39 a.m. CST
Who say grow the fuck up already. "Oooh, look at me, I'm hating on something that's popular, fuck I'm hardcore and original today!" Yeah, right, whatever. Like what you like, don't like what you don't like, and leave others to do likewise without being an ass about it all and smearing other peoples opinions with your own petty shit with delusions that it don't stink. Or, you know, carry right on, honestly it's not like anyone gives a fuck either way. Including me, so why am I even bothering to write this? Good question...

Wow, I got the drop on AICN weeks ago...posted this in the season premiere talkback...In your face AICN!!! And I stopped buying Spawn toys because they come out of the package broken. That's never happened to me with any other toys but it happened twice with Todd's Toys...and yes...i take them out of the package *gasp*. I like to get high off of the explosion of toxic fumes that accompany opening a Spawn Toy...mmmmm...I'm dizzy
