    Fuck them for doing this.

    by Fawst

    We shouldn't have to get 8 episodes in a 16 season designed to have no interruptions. Just fucking delay it! Argh.<br><br>On topic, the preview is great. Just enough of a tease to really get you interested. Not that we weren't already, we being the ones who worship at the alter of Lost...

    "Same thing I've always done, Kate."

    by d1138

    I could've done without that cornball Sawyer line, but it still looks damn good. Strike or not, I still think it's a shitty idea to spread this out over three more seasons. Why not two?

  • Dec. 20, 2007, 6:03 p.m. CST

    yes, I have

    by PVIII

    But excited for the 8 episodes. Rather 8 now, then have to wait until the summer for them. Also, after last night, Journeyman=Lost, at least in my book. I find the first 13 of both comparable, on a quality level.

  • Dec. 20, 2007, 6:08 p.m. CST

    wowwie wow wow

    by shatfanat

    That looked pretty damn good. Now I'm going to have to go back and watch at least the last season. It's been so long since I've seen an episode I've forgotten half of what happened.

  • Dec. 20, 2007, 6:10 p.m. CST

    I can't wait...

    by Strabo

    Hopefully the eight episodes will piss off the remaining viewers enough that the audience numbers will drop even more. If we're lucky, this show will end up right where it belongs: the trash.

  • Dec. 20, 2007, 6:11 p.m. CST

    And yes...

    by Strabo

    ...this is a drive-by comment. I don't really give a fuck about debating the merits of the show with you mouth-breathers. So don't bother arguing with me. I won't be coming back to read it.

    by Novaman5000

    For someone who hates lost so much, he certainly frequents articles about the show. I'm not gonna dignify his trolling any further, though.<p> As for this preview, it's fucking great. I mean, I was excited before, but damn if this didn't up it somethin awful.

    by Dr. Hfuhruhurr

    Over a full season of Heroes. The season finale of Lost showed Heroes how to do it right. Yay Jack, Sawyer, Locke, Kate, Sayid and Hurley!

    who the hell is strabo? and who cares?

    by geraldbeans

    Lost is the best show on TV. It's had tough patches but its mythology is expansive enough to still keep it intersting til now. I have a dream. That dream is to ignore the show for the next 3 years and then buy all the remaining 48 episodes and watch them back to back for 2 days. I have that dream. But that dream would be stupid as someone would almost certainly reveal the island's secret to me by then. So that means I have to play this stupid waiting game episode-to-episode, season-to-season.

  • Dec. 20, 2007, 7:37 p.m. CST

    Looks Great!!!

    by travis-dane

    by dr_john_zoidberg

    Can't wait. I had the 8 episode run with a question mark at the end, but I'll take anything right now(so long as it doesn't compromise the story arc). 42 days left!!

    by Frank Black

    It is unfortunate you won't be able to read all of the comments telling you to go fuck yourself you negative asshole. That said, this trailer reminds us why the show is so good. Very excited for this.

  • Dec. 20, 2007, 8:36 p.m. CST

    I don't typically get excited by promos...

    by DanielKurland

    But in my opinion, that looks fucking fantastic. Was that Asian with the gun who has come to the island the same one in the second half of the last season of the Sopranos, who was "friends" with Junior?

    I've just finished Season 2 on DVD, and I'm about to start Season 3. Will watching this preview spoil anything? I'm guessin' yes. P.S.: This is a test. If you use this opportunity to post spoilers for the end of season 3, you get your Master Asshole certification.

    by rbrog77

    There's so much to season 3 that a 1 + minute preview won't touch most of it. But there are things in the preview you might not want to know. Safe bet is watch S3 between now and Jan 31.<P> Trust me, you won't be disappointed.

    I don't know that you can really compare LOST and Journeyman...

    by br1947

    Journeyman was really just beginning what you could see would have become a very intricate Lost-like arc but it never really got the chance to get there. Just enough to give you a glimpse of where it was going, which is all the more annoying. I'm torn about Lost coming back, I like the concept, but this idea of stretching 2 seasons worth of great story out over 5 years of mediocracy highlighted with bits of brilliance to make a buck really just pisses me off. sigh... I'll still be watching tho... fammit!

    The Best is Back! The only thing I can't stand the strike for

    by Stormwatcher

    I just can't believe this strike is screwing us over like this. I can only hope that the make the next season 24 eps long and start it in September or October and not 2009. But I will take anything right now and while I don't want a 8 ep DVD box set, I do want to see the 8 eps now and not when the stupid strike ends. Goddamit get back to work writers.

  • Dec. 20, 2007, 11:15 p.m. CST

    As much as I support the writers

    by Mezzanine

    I am pissed I'll only get 8 episodes of Lost this spring :( That being said, I would still take 8 episodes of Lost over just about any complete series out there.

  • Dec. 20, 2007, 11:15 p.m. CST

    I'd love to see the episode where they all have a big orgy...

    by ZeroCorpse

    You know you want to see Kate in a three-way with Jack and Sawyer... Don't you? You want to see Sun take it where Sun don't shine. You want to see Hugo get some-- Get ANY-- out of pity alone. You want to see the whole lot of them just give in to their frustrations and turn the whole island into a fuck-colony. <p> There at least needs to be an R-rated Lost movie that give up some nice topless scenes of Kate... Come on guys! Who's with me?

  • Dec. 20, 2007, 11:25 p.m. CST


    by aestheticity

    strabo will do this in every lost talkback because hes a sad freak, as shown by him being amongst the first posters in the first lost talkback since may - he hasnt posted in anything else in that time - just waited 7 months, visiting every hour of every day, to express that sentiment of his again as quickly as possible. what you do is ignore him like he asks. responding makes him feel like a big man. please dont, not from now on. this is the only time ill say this.

    Love Me Some Lost

    by The Alienist

    I enjoy all the Lost love reverberating from the AICN blue posting rectangles....but this is the same group of forum writers who tend to trash the show unendingly week after week when the show is what its like not to have our Lost for six months before you begin a-moanin' "that Kate wouldn't do that!" or "that was a lame monster sequence"....

  • Dec. 21, 2007, 12:17 a.m. CST

    I think we can all agree that...

    by wackybantha

    ....the Cloverfield monster is a whalecrab (whatever the hell THAT means) and LOST rules all other TV shows!!! Although, I personally am hoping that the Cloverfield monster is a MANBEARPIG!!!

  • Dec. 21, 2007, 12:19 a.m. CST


    by BurgerKing

    I thought the first preview was unreal, this one is even better, by showing the faces of these new threats, by saying some will stay, some will go. Locke taking over as leader since Jack pretty much doomed them, and more flashes of Christian Shepard....I'm extremely excited.

  • Dec. 21, 2007, 12:19 a.m. CST

    by movieman742

    Didn't the producers sign a deal to make the rest of the show only a certain amount of episodes and thus making the seasons shorter to make the show get drawn out for ratings?

  • Dec. 21, 2007, 2:11 a.m. CST

    THAT was a kick ass trailer

    by SlickyVonBoner

    I love how every season they add a new element to the show to give it a new twist. This season, I'm guessin, will be the boat and why they came to the island. I hope the Others get to that temple or shrine they were heading to. I'd like to see what that's all about. Oh, and the Jacob thing.. amazing This show is genius. Anyone who doesn't like it is just fucking retarded or stupid. They can go back to their cookie-cutter cop/lawyer/doctor shows. Every single person I'm convinced to check out this show from the beginning LOVES it. Because, it is the best show.. period.. ever! God I love this show.. I need to change my drawers.

    Weiner Penis...

    by Cheif Brody

    I want whatever yer smoking, dude. Sure...TPTB at Lost had an idea an extended strike could put a huge wrinkle in the 2008 season...Every show had to deal with that possiblity of the strike's effect. What could they do? They can't make the episodes any faster than they already are. They got 8 done...hoping the negotiations would not break down. They did...and now they just have to wait....just like every show on TV. There was no "plan". Every key actor on Lost has been locked up air tight until Lost is completely OVER. They can't wander of and leave the show without breaking a very costly contract. Michael Emerson hoped to do a play on Broadway after wrapping Season he can't, cuz he's in "limbo" waiting on the strike and he's contractually obligated to Ben Linus until Lost ends of Locke put's a bullet in his head. There is no conspiracy...Lost will soon as the strike is over.

    something.

The new posts are from "Strabbo", two B's, in keeping with the typos from people slapping back at Strabo. That said, Strabo's a dumbass, the trailer kicks ass, and i'd rather have eight good eps now than wait for them to get back from the strike, dust off their keyboards and get back to work before getting anything. And remember: The owls are not what they seem!

    by SlickyVonBoner

    When Jack said something like go get him and if he's drunker then me... I think he was referring to he's dead, and in whatever afterlife he's in, he's drunk. That was just a little line to try and trick/convince people that it was still a flashback when it was really a flash forward.

And the alternative is even worse...delaying the start of Season 4 until AFTER the strike is settled...ABC would have to hold it until November 08 sweeps. Does anyone really want to wait THAT long to get 16 episodes in a row?

    If J.J had concentrated a little more on LOST instead of that shitty ass Cloverfield dud he was so inspired to make, we could have had more shows.
