Lost Tonight!!

I have some good news and some bad news about Lost. The good news (well, for me, anyway): Tonight's Lost will be airing in Canada at 7 p.m. WOOT!! That means I'll have my blog post up before everyone else is even finished watching the ep, which rocks. (And I don't have to be up until 11:45 this time.) So Canadians, make sure you're tuning in to the A-Channel at 7: if you click over at 9, you'll miss it (unless you have HD; then just pick it up on the ABC feed).

The bad news: No new Lost next week. It's just a repeat of this week's episode. :::SNIFFLE... SOB:::

And while you're waiting for the post to go up, here's this week's Lost fun. I LOVE this site, and in my season 4 Finding Lost guide, I've posted the address under my favourite sites to check out. It's called The Ack Attack, and Rachel Ack posts complete synopses of the previous week's Lost with her laugh-out-loud sense of humour (seriously, do NOT read this while drinking anything). Her synopsis for last week's "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham" may well be the funniest one she's done yet. I was laughing my head off. Here's a taste (from the scene where Widmore visits Locke in the hospital):

Locke comes to when some dude with a British/Australian/something else I’m sure accent wakes him up. And it’s our good fiend friend Chuck Widmore!

Widmore: Come to the Dark Side! We have cookies!

Locke: Ben said to not trust you!

Widmore: BENJAMIN?? If Benjamin were an ice cream flavor, he’d be Pralines and Dick!

Locke: …

Widmore: Come onnnn, want to be my new BFF?

Locke: Why would I want that?

Widmore: I was the leader on the island for 30 years! I’m an Other from another mother!

Locke: Well okay, I’m not supposed to tell you this, but I have to bring them all back.

Widmore: Yes! And you MUST succeed. You are the Chosen One. You MUST get back to the Island!

Locke: But why??

“Because there’s a war coming, John. And if you’re not back on The Island when it happens, the wrong side is going to win! Even now Benrymort is gathering his Death Eaters in order to strike when the time comes! Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy! Don’t you see, John?? Neither of you can live while the other survives!”

“..Merlin’s beard!”


Go read the entire post here (I will now be using the term "Jeard" on a regular basis), and check out her site weekly here.

So you're a fellow AckAttack fan? High five! I remember when I discovered her recaps sometime mid season four, I spent a whole vening tearing up for how much I laughed. They never get old (and the Ben custom comic is just too cute for words, this said by someone who otherwise has problems with the woobification of Ben).

LOVED AckAttack! This will be the 2nd place I look at after each episode ... after Nikki, of course.

Which one is it that cuts the feed off before the end of the episode - A channel or ABC. I know one week it just switched to another show.

Are you sure there's a repeat tonight? My DirecTV guide claims ABC is broadcasting a new episode called "LaFleur"

bugger, I just looked at the time. I guess I missed the Cdn feed tonight.
Thanks for the head's up though.
AckAttack is awesome. world needs more laughter.

There's a repeat next week, Anonymous. Unless you saw a flash of white light and your calendar says March 11th. :)

I just switched to A for the start of the enhanced and when Lost finished, I checked and realized it was the new one. DAMN IT!

At least it's playing on ABC (regardless of HD or what not).

A was broadcasting it earlier due to conflict with American Idol.

I guess that's what happens when one gets caught up for 10 hours (8-6) with TSN's Trade Centre 09!

oh my werd! Seriously, do not read AckAttack while trying to do anything breathing. It just won't happen :) My sister and I were laughing so hard it was annoying the rest of our family!
