For those who missed it, we’re posting the audio from the special “LOST” panel at Comic-Con, which took place three months ago this week. Entertainment Weekly‘s Jeff “Doc” Jensen and Dan “Dan” Snierson brought in “LOST” creators Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, and showed a special deleted scene.
Since we posted our final “LOST” podcast in May, we’ve been busy over at Popspotting. We’ve put out over 80 daily shows focused on movies, TV, music, books, and countless other topics, and we’ve even had weekly guests join us to share their picks. We hope you’ll check it out!
It was a year ago that “LOST” left the airwaves. Though it clearly took us far too long to say goodbye, there’s perhaps no better time than now to do so, looking back on the six-year spectacular run of our favorite TV show ever. For those still listening, thank you, and mahalo for being a part of this amazing journey.
In this two-hour final podcast, we cover “The Other 364 Days,” touching on what’s happened since our penultimate show, from Comic-Con to “The New Man In Charge” to the whereabouts of “LOST” alumni. Then we share our favorite episodes, scenes, and characters from the entire series. Next up, more than half an hour of LOSTLine calls where you share your own picks. Finally, after the last “LOST” song from The Others LOST Band, we invite you to join us on our new podcast.
Today brings the much-anticipated release of “LOST: Season Six” on DVD (or Blu-Ray) and “LOST: The Complete Collection” on DVD (or Blu-Ray). The release brings what could be the last twelve minutes of the six-year “LOST” story with “The New Man in Charge,” a 12-minute epilogue showing a glimpse of what followed the final fade to white we saw in May. Of course, the discs include a ton of special features and other extras.
We’d love to hear your thoughts on the epilogue, as well as the other goodies unleashed on “LOST” fans today. When we finally release our final podcast, we’ll be sure to include some discussion of this awesome material. Meanwhile, be sure to catch the Emmy Awards on Sunday, Aug. 29, which will be broadcast on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT. “LOST” and its cast and crew are up for an impressive twelve nominations.
Finally, another invitation to join us on Facebook. Over on our page’s “Discussions” tab, a number of fun conversations among fellow fans and friends.
For the third year in a row, we joined Jay & Jack on their “LOST Podcasting” panel at the San Diego Comic-Con. Over 100 people filled the Santa Rosa Room at the Marriott to talk about the end of “LOST,” and its possible future.
The audio is a bit rough, and some questions were completely inaudible, so I’ve edited them out. Still, you should be able to follow the free-wheeling, fun conversation.
We had a blast at Comic-Con, and will definitely be returning next year! Hope to see you there!
Before the final curtain falls on “The Transmission,” we’re making a last-minute pilgrimage to Comic-Con in San Diego this week to see old friends, make new ones, and collect the last “LOST” stories being told at the annual “Geek Prom.” If you’ll be there, we hope to connect with you. Track us on Twitter (@hawaii and @mrshawaii), or send us a text message at the LOSTline at 815-310-0808.
While we’re there, we’ll collect some “LOST” remembrances in person, and share any “LOST” goodies we find. For the non-”LOST” stuff, catch us over at Popspotting.
We will, we promise, post our final podcast as soon as we can. Until then, the door is always open, and the golden white light is always available to you to share your favorite “LOST” moments, characters, and episodes, and thoughts on what “LOST” has meant to you over the years.
Meanwhile, thanks to those of you who joined us in paying tribute to Nunu, raising over $900 for the Hawaiian Humane Society. And congratulations to the entire “LOST” team for an incredible 13 Emmy nominations!
The last episode of “The Transmission” will take a little longer than planned to come together. Perhaps we’re having trouble letting go. Perhaps we’re just disorganized. Perhaps Ryan forgot that his mother-in-law would be in town. Either way, we appreciate your patience, and if you haven’t yet chimed in with your series-in-review comments, now’s your chance! Mahalo.
For the final episode of “The Transmission,” we want to take a special, wistful look back on the last six years of “LOST.” So much has happened since the moment Oceanic Flight 815 crashed on that mysterious island on September 22, 2004… both on the show, and in the “LOST” fan community. As far as “LOST” is concerned, we’d love to to get your pick for your favorite episode of all time. You could also tell us about your favorite character, or your favorite story twist. There are probably too many great moments to count. But we’re also curious to learn what “LOST” has meant to you. Simply top-notch television? A much needed escape? An excuse to connect with friends, or make new ones?
Tell us your “LOST” story. You can comment below, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the LOSTLine at (815) 310-0808. We hope to release our podcast on June 27. But we may take longer than expected to collect ourselves!
In our penultimate podcast, we take our traditional look back at the last season as a whole. We review our favorite moments from each episode of Season Six, evaluate how each character turned out in the end, and choose our favorite episodes. Then, we turn it over to “You All Everybody” for a your take on the final season of “LOST.” We pay tribute to the late Nunu, then lay out our plans for the last episode of “The Transmission.” Finally, we hear from The Others LOST Band with their song, “Let Go.”
Nunu, the beloved dog of Jorge Garcia and Bethany Shady, died last month just as they all were preparing to leave Hawaii. Nunu had her own share of fans, and even appeared in an episode of “LOST” this season. We sent our condolences, and memorialized Nunu at the Memorial Day lantern floating ceremony the next day. But I felt the “LOST” fan community could do more.
Taking inspiration from Jo, I’d like to encourage “LOST” fans to pay tribute to Nunu by making a donation in her name to the Hawaiian Humane Society. If you donate $10 or more, we’ll send you a limited-edition pin from the “Sunset on the Beach” premiere of “LOST” in January.
Most of the people at the “Sunset on the Beach” event didn’t get these, whereas T-shirts were in abundant supply. But thanks to a generous benefactor, we have dozens available for this special cause. You can get a pin for every $10 donated, and you can have your pin sent to a friend as a gift… while supplies last!
Need more convincing? Here’s a video montage of Nunu that Jorge and Beth made in 2006:
Support the good work of the Hawaiian Humane Society and leave a great island legacy for Nunu. Donate here, and email us your receipt. Of course, be sure to include your mailing address. Mahalo for your consideration.
Each season of “LOST” has a distinct personality. From the story arc to the tone, pacing, and — of course — a new storytelling twist. The sixth and final season of “LOST” brought us the last act of the island story, as well as the confounding “flash sideways.” With the entirety of the show now behind us, we’d like to know: How did you like Season Six? Which episode was your favorite? Which tested your faith? Do you have a favorite character moment, or plot twist, or scene? Let’s look at the journey from “LA X” to “The End” in our traditional season-in-review show!
Please comment below, send an e-mail to email@example.com, or call the LOSTLine at (815) 310-0808. We plan to release the podcast on Sunday, June 13, 2010, so we’d love your feedback by Friday, June 11.
