The Lost Fan Questionnaire

So just in time for the Lost season premiere TOMORROW NIGHT (AAAAHHHH!!) let's gather up the troops and find out who all is out there reading this blog and getting ready to chat tomorrow.

If you're new here, the night of a new episode I watch the episode as it airs live (I don't get screeners, sadly), then watch it again, then type up a comprehensive blog post highlighting the little things I noticed, I try to link it back to earlier episodes, and I mention the new questions that have been raised by the ep. That post will usually be up within 2 hours of the end of the episode (I try to be quicker, but unfortunately it's the best I can do). Then, it's up to everyone else on here to jump in and usually come up with even more comprehensive analyses than I was able to offer, and as a community we piece 'er all together. Last season I think the record on one of those episodes was 400+ comments on my post for the finale, but generally it's around the 200-comment range.

So, I thought it would be fun to throw a questionnaire your way, and you can answer the following questions in the comments so we can get to know a little more about each of you. I'm not going to go too indepth on the questions or else it'll become a slog for people, so just give really quick answers (or long if you have the time) and this will help us bide the time as our anxiety levels all peak in anticipation of the beginning of the end!!

1. What country are you from?

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?

5. What was the saddest moment for you?

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?

9. What is your least favourite storyline?

10. What other shows do you watch right now?

11. What are your all-time favourite shows?

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?

1. What country are you from?
> Germany

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?
> Right from the get-go - LOST's first season aired on German pay-tv just a few days after the US. Unfortunately they are about six weeks behind now - but there's other ways...

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?
> The total mayhem after the crash - I'll never forget screaming Shannon.

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?
> Hurley and Ben sharing the candy bar.

5. What was the saddest moment for you?

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
> The timeline of Michael's and Locke's trips from the island seem to make no sense. And the whole thing with the "Jeremy Bantham" alias hasn't been well explained either. Was it really just a lame distraction to keep us guessing who's in the coffin? Oh, and what about Sun taking over her dead's company and teaming up with Widmore? Wasted idea!

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?
> Most of the Desmond stuff has been great. And I loved the time jumps last season as long as they were fast and unpredictable.

9. What is your least favourite storyline?
> Jack being annoying.

10. What other shows do you watch right now?

> Why didn't everybody time jump?

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?
> Not really... but I want that goddamn volcano to erupt!

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?
> That it made those past eight months fly by so fast.

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?
> Never ever get that obsessed with a TV show again. Half of my friends think I'm nuts ;-)

asiancolossus said...

1. Canada (Toronto babee!)
2. Actually didn't watch the premiere live, got caught up after the first month. Addicted ever since.
3. The originality of how they told their stories in flashbacks, the great acting, and high production values, haven't seen anything like this ever.
4. Funniest and moment that made me go WOOHOO! When Hurley mowed down the other in his VW to save our heroes, Jin, Bernard and Sayid.
5. CHAAAAAAALIEEEEEE!
6. Juliet. She went from being my most hated character to being my most loved character...the sheer brilliance of the writers and Elizabeth Mitchell. You could feel her suffering and her love for Sawyer letting him go at the end (?)...tragic...
7. The obvious answer is Nikki and Paulo (!) but I'm going to say not fleshing out the tailies and keeping them around at least for another season. I think there was a lot more they could have done with them.
8. Jin and Sun...are they going to get back together, the obvious answer would be yes, the fans would be furious...but creatively, they would probably be smart to have them almost get together and then not...
9. Not much of a fan of Ilana and her crew, they've done nothing to endear me to them (even Benjamin Linus has wormed his way into my heart!). But I see why she is necessary.
10. Glee, Modern Family, The Bachelor (don't laugh!), Flashforward, V, Grey's Anatomy, Being Erica (yes I agree Nikki, I've fallen in love with that show...its a cross between Lost and Sex and the City!)
11. LOST (1 to 5!), Modern Family (still early but still...), The Flintstones!, Star Trek TNG
12. Will all our main heroes from Season 1 survive and be redeemed?
13. I have this weird feeling that it is going to end the way it started, with the boarding of the passengers of 815, leaving it to us to figure out whether they were able to get out of the time loop. But Darlton said there would be a finite ending so that probably won't happen.
14. An eye...it would be fitting.
15. How everyone is so supportive no matter what my stupid questions and theories are!
16. Go into rehab.

damn how could I forget Sex and the City as one my favorite shows??? :)

Jack's burial.

11. Lost, Gilligan's Island, Fantasy Island...

15. Just the fact that we can a)gain some amazing insight, b)have a nice little diversion from everyday life, and c)explore our thoughts and feelings about the show without fear of someone walking in, rolling their eyes and saying "oh...your talking about Lost AGAIN..."


16. Weep uncontrollably for about an hour, grab a tissue, grab my Finding Losts and then start watching it all over again...and again....and again...

Country: United States

Viewing history: Some friends at work advised me to watch it right before season 3. I Netflixed the first season, watched the first disc of season 1 in four hours, then went out and immediately bought seasons 1 and 2 on DVD. Season 3 was where I began watching live.

What drew me in?: The character development -- as an English teacher (and wannabe writer), I'd never seen such depth in primetime TV.

Funniest moment: Hurley sharing an Apollo bar with Ben outside Jacob's cabin.

Saddest moment: Sun watching the frieghter explode with Jin on it.

Favorite character: Locke, because he is seeking meaning for himself.

Biggest misstep: Tie between Jack's tats and Nikki and Paolo (easy answers, I know).

Favorite storyline: The conflict between Jacob and the Man in Black.

Least favorite storyline: Ben's pursuit of Juliet's romantic interest.

Other shows I watch: Dexter, Mad Men, True Blood, Breaking Bad, Community, V, The Office, 30 Rock, Eastbound and Down, Penn & Teller: Bullshit, South Park

All-time favorites: LOST, Dexter, X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Biggest question to answer: What is the island?

Theory on ending: All time lines will converge, but Jack will have to die to establish order and save the island from paradoxical destruction.

Ending image: Jack's dead open eye.

Favorite thing about fan community: The commradery (sic) between people as they bond over this amazing, sprawling, mysterious, epic tale.

Plans afterwards: Blow up a hydrogen bomb to reboot the experience.

Hey all!

1. What country are you from?

POLAND (so technically we won't get it for a while but I'll get it on Wed morning;)

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?

Summer between seasons 1 and 2 was
when I started.

3. What is it about Lost that drew
you in in the first place?

The mystery element, Charlie's "Guys, where are we?" comment made me want to find out where they actually were. And the Locke twist at the end of the Walkabout sealed the deal for me;)

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?

"Shut up...redneck..man!"
"Touche'"
That exchange between Sawyer and Hurley has me in tears everytime I watch it:D

5. What was the saddest moment for you?

Charlie's death!!

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?

Charlie..he's the guy I have the most in common;)

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?

Nikki and Paulo!!!

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?

The whole time-travel/reset thing!

9. What is your least favourite storyline?

The Skate, Jate, Suliet, Jackuliet
mess - don't care, Kate as a potential girlfriend is annoying as hell to me! MAKE UP YOUR MIND FRECKLES!!

10. What other shows do you watch right now?

House, 24, How I Met Your Mother, Scrubs, Dexter, Lie 2 Me, Californication, The Good Wife, Cougar Town, Modern Family, Heroes, FlashForward, V, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice, Family, Guy, American Dad, The Cleveland Show - to name a few;)


11. What are your all-time favourite shows?

Top 3(in that order):
LOST
HOUSE
24

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?

Island's backstory!

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?

I think that since seasons 1-3 was mainly flashbacks, s4 was flasforwards, s5 was flashsideways, season 6 will probably be flashALTERNATES. We will follow one storyline where the Jughead detonation didn't do jack (get it? ;) ) and one where Oecanic 815 never crashed. Maybe on of the character's consciousness will shift between the one and the other (maybe Jack's) and towards the end they will somehow merge together for the best possible outcome!

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?

Jack's eyes closing! (maybe cuz he's dying)

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?

You guys are geeks just like me. LOST is our STAR WARS and STAR TREK!! I love it;)

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?

Three words: rewatch, rewatch, rewatch :D

Benny said...

1. From: Canada (Ottawa area)

2. Since: Holidays of Season 1 (mini catch-up marathon)

3. Hook: Mystery and intrigue (only part of what kept me though)

4. Funniest: "If you're thinking time traveling bunnies, then yes John." -Ben

5. Saddest: a) Desmond throwing the ring in the Thames; b) Alex's death - somewhat gratuitous; or, c) Shannon's death.

6. Character: Desmond - simply the character growth and how he is unaware of his importance; Ben - because of Michael Emerson, just a wide range of traits and emotions, maybe the most complete character on a TV show; and, Widmore - the utter mystery surrounding his origin and life story, important yet little known about him.

7. Misstep: Possibly the time discrepancy in the story of Jeremy Bentham. (Or the production gaffe with THE house ;) right?)

8. Storyline 1: Tough call, the Christian or Desmond story arc maybe.

9. Storyline 2: Another tough call, might have to go with the family on this one and say: "The love triangle for 2000 Alex?"

10. 24, Castle, V, Flashforward, Fringe, KITH's Death Comes to Town, Dollhouse (tear), Simpsons, Family Guy, Californication, Bored to Death, Hockey in general :)

11. Arrested Development, Lost, The Wire, Huff, Twin Peaks, Oz, +

12. Answer: Hmmm, maybe the origin of the smoke monster. Not even its purpose, I'd be OK with that being left to the viewer's interpretation.

13. Theory: a few... not going to list them here, maybe a blog!

14. Image: I like the idea of an eye closing and/or Adam & Eve. But I'd rather not speculate and just see it and take it all in.

15. Community: The development of theories and productivity we get from each other, just an immense pot of ressources. The perfect wikishow.

16. Write different papers on the show and read more. The same as to how I coped with Arrested Development. Maybe start a support group!

1. What country are you from? The southern US (and I add the qualifier not out of pride so much as a way of explaining my occasional use of words like "y'all" and "hillbilly" and "fatback").

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over? Cry like a baby. Then throw my TV away.

Duke said...

1. Canada

2. Watched seasons 1-4 (very quickly - many late nights) on DVD and was good to go for Season 5. Waiting for Season 6 has been my first LOST wait...and it has seemed very, very long!

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?

The characters. Those flashbacks. Amazing.

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?

The hot pocket.

5. What was the saddest moment for you?

Charlie's death.

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?

Very difficult to choose...and it is constantly changing. Originally Jack and I am hoping it will be Jack again this season. Sayid. Sawyer had his moments - gotta love those nicknames. Desmond, he had me at Brother. Jin and Sun together.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?

Nikki and Pablo. Froughurt.

8. What is your favourite
storyline to follow?

Again, hard to choose. I like them all.

9. What is your least favourite storyline?

N & P

10. What other shows do you watch right now?

Modern Family, The Office, 30 Rock

11. What are your all-time favourite shows?

LOST, Seinfeld, Simpsons (not as much recently), Firefly, Sopranos

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?

What happens after Juliet hits the bomb?

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?

I am kind of wondering if it might be Dark Towerish - everything needs to be done over and over and over again until they get it right.

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?

an eye

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?

I only know about it here on Nik at Night ...but from all of you...great senses of humour, great insights and positive.

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?

Watch it again.

Sagacious Penguin said...

1. What country are you from?
USA - FL

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?
I saw Season 1 on DVD in Nov. 2005. My first live episode was 2.09 Collision.

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?
The rich characters and the clever story-telling methods. They had me at Walkabout.

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost? Two words: Hot Pocket. Funniest episode over-all goes to Tricia Tanaka is Dead. I'll never understand the flak that episode always gets. It's one of my all-time favorites for just how character-rich it is.

5. What was the saddest moment for you? Charlie was sad, but Boone still takes the cake. It was the first major death on the series and the episode was one slow burn toward the inevitable tragic outcome. And watching Jack's inability to give up made it all the harder to watch.

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why? Locke: the confident, wisdom-exuding Locke. I miss that guy. May he find a way back to the surface this season!

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show? I REALLY wanted an episode that showed us Juliet was responsible for leading Ben into that net trap. I think that would have really solidified her character arch from the victim we saw in the flashbacks of 4.06 The Other Woman to the steel-hearted 'other' of 3.01 Tale of Two Cities.

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow? Locke's of course!

9. What is your least favourite storyline? I honestly love them all, but I'm not a fan of triangle stuff that is ONLY for the sake of the triangle. When it's well-integrated into the main story, then I have no issues with the triangle, but when you have a whole episode sub-plot about Kate sleeping with Sawyer b/c she can't be with Jack (3.17 Catch 22) well that's just silly, useless, and character-diminishing.

10. What other shows do you watch right now?
The Office, Parks & Rec., Star Wars: the Clone Wars, Burn Notice

11. What are your all-time favourite shows?
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Gargoyles, Foyle's War

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?
I'd love to have the mystery of Daniel's diary clarified: how he knew what to write down at certain times. Did he do a lot of time jumping when he first used his machine on himself (before Widmore visited him) and/or when he was in Ann Arbor?

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end? I do not. But I'd love to see Locke and Jack shake hands on something!

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be? Jack's Eye. ...Or Vincent paddling in the water after the Island disappears forever.

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community? The discussions!

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?
Weep a bit. Hope they release an all-in-one blu-ray set. Listen to the soundtracks a lot.

EamonnToGetLost said...

Long time reader here. First time poster. At least under an official user name. I haven't posted much. But I plan to more during season 6. Anyway..on to the questions.

1. What country are you from?

USA - MI. Hmm, maybe I should take a short trip to Ann Arbor and try to find the DeGroots...

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?

Right from the beginning.

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?

Initially, as I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan, Dominic Monaghan. But obviously as soon as I watched the pilot episode, it instantly became so much more than that.

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?

"What's your problem, Jumbotron?"/"Shut up, red - neck - man."

5. What was the saddest moment for you?

I have two:

1) Goodbye, Charlie Pace.

1a) Hurley: "I'm sorry I forgot the blankets."

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?

Hurley. I love how he speaks for us all.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?

Duh. Nikki and Paolo.

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?

Locke. anything Locke.

9. What is your least favourite storyline?

Who will Kate end up with? With all due respect, who cares? As long as the story is good and satisfying, it shouldn't matter. Plus, with all the crazy big mythology stuff...smoke monsters, time travel, Richard's eyeliner...something like that seems pretty insignificant in comparison.

10. What other shows do you watch right now?

Heroes...although I'm not sure why anymore. The Big Bang Theory. Fringe. Flashforward. V. The Simpsons.

11. What are your all-time favourite shows?

Unquestionably, Lost. When all is said and done, it's gonna be one of the greatest shows on TV ever. In my opinion, it already is. I don't know if there's been a show that's been as bold, or as DEEP, as this show has been.

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?

What is the grand purpose in everyone coming to the island? and I mean everyone...not just the 815ers in 2004.

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?

Ha. Yeah right. If I did, I'd be a genius like Darlton. And I wouldn't be sitting here totally clueless as to where they're going with this.

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?

Vincent dreaming the entire thing up while he's stuck in purgatory.

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?

How insanely awesome they are.

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?

Curl up into a fetal position and cry. Then go to Los Angeles, talk to Eloise, find my window, go to the island, turn the frozen donkey wheel, go back to September 2004 and watch it all over again in real time. Even with the annoying repeated breaks during season 2. Hey, maybe fate will course correct THAT, and season 2 will have no breaks this time around.

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?

either "Leslie is a *&%^ing name" or when Hurley throws the Hot Pocket!

When Jin appears to be blown up on the freighter... GAH I sobbed with Sun!

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?

Jin... although he was starting to change before the plane crash, he has had the most growth I think out of all of our Losties... and he makes me laugh :)

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?

Not giving Libby a full story because of Ana Lucia... that's always bugged me.

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?

Why they were brought to the island and why they are so connected to one another.

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?

My theory is that it will be VERY much talked about. Besides that, I have no idea... and I love it!

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?

Jack's eye opening from the pilot... either that or Vincent ;)

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?

You get to meet people from around the globe, share ideas and theories. Only place I can geek out without being judged ;)

I am from a small town in North Carolina and have watched LOST since the first show! Immediate addiction due to it superb cast and intriquing plot! My favorites are rather trite: Saddest moment when Charlie died, funniest moment when Sawyer give nicknames, etc. I believe the show will end with Jack's eye closing! It will signify the ending just as his opening of his eye began the whole saga. After LOST I will watch all the episodes for the upteenth time and try to figure what I should have caught the first go-round! I will continue to follow your blog as well! Namaste!

AchingHope said...

Country: USA, New York (the state, not the city)

Watching: Dude, Sonshine would remember better than me. I think the first season we watched was 5 though.

Drawn In: I walked in while Sonshine was watching an intense "Running Through the Forest With Violins" scene. It was hard going to sleep that night, having no idea WHAT was going on.

Funniest? Ah, so many, but prolly Hurley and the hot pocket, and Sawyer's great lines, Oh! And Ben saying: "How many times do I have to tell you, John, I always have a plan."

Saddest: Honestly, prolly Shannon's death, because she was just getting developed into more than an obnoxious person. Though Alex's death was brutal. (If Jin had really been dead that would be here too, but I KNEW he was still alive)

Fav: Definitely BEN! Oh my. I had to start the re-watch just because I was going through Ben-withdrawal. He is phenomenal. And I always have loved Hurley.

Misstep: Killing Libby was annoying, and there are some discrepancies my sis pointed out to me that are annoying as well.

Fav Storyline: Dude, I don't know... I really enjoyed the time flashsy timeness. Um... I'll think of this late tomorrow night when it no longer matters

Least Fav: Man, I have to agree with everyone: Nikki and Paulo. What a waste of my life. Although, the tailies how existence seems kinda' wasted, since they all pretty much died, and even though the stewardess was taken by the Others nothing ever happened with that. Stupid. (Oh, and this wasn't a question: but I hated Goodwin! I always call him Baldwin and frown in his general direction. SO glad he is dead and gone)

Other Shows: Lie to Me, NCIS (the new one), Castle (SO GOOD!)

Fav SHows: Lost, Pretender, Stargates, Castle, and probably Scrubs.

BIGGEST Q: Well, there are so many questions, I have no idea which would be biggest! I just enjoy there be questions so much, I don't think I can choose.

How Will it End: There will be crystal headed aliens and the island is their space ship! Okay. No, I have no theories.

Single Image: The island exploding, and not just some *bloop* thing, but really EXPLODE, just because I like mass mayhem

Fav Thing About the Lost Community: Just looking at how many places we all come from, and even though we have so little in common, we can create our own little family of nutcases and it is amazing!

When It's Over: Save up to go to Hawaii with my sis *sighs dreamily*

1. What country are you from?

Caught up on DVD. I watched the first 2 seasons on DVD before the 3rd Season premiere.

Initially I didn't want to get into a new show, but when I started watching it I got drawn into the flashbacks/character development.

Hurley being startled by Ben and throwing the hot pocket.

5. What was the saddest moment for you?
Juliet falling down the hole in the Incident.

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?
Hurley, because he's probably the most honest of all the characters.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
Dragging things out a bit. The show's first 3 seasons are dramatically different from the last 2. This is probably because they didn't know when the show would end and had to stall.

An eye.

Openness to debate.

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?
Cry. Hopefully I'll find another new show to obsess over like this one, but I doubt it.

1. What country are you from?
USA

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?
Right from the beginning

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?
The depth. A show that makes you pay attention and think.
4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?
Many Hurley moments:
- Dude you got some Arzt on you
- Red-neck man
- He had a name - Roger Workman
- What a douche - that douche is my dad
- Hot pocket throwing
- Hurley eating the 15 year old saltines outside the Orchid
5. What was the saddest moment for you?
In Season 4, in the Ji Yeon episode, when we realize that Sun is in a Flash Forward and Jin is in a flashback. So sad.
6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?
I love Ben - he is just awesome on so many levels.
7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
I think the tailies were a misstep. With the exception of Bernard, we lost them all and that really just bought them time. I think they introduced them without knowing how they were going to use them.
8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?
Desmond and Penny
9. What is your least favourite storyline?
Stranger in a Strange Land - what was the purpose of that episode anyway?
10. What other shows do you watch right now?
Fringe, Flash Forward, Heroes, The Simpsons, Amazing Race, Survivor, 24, The Office
11. What are your all-time favourite shows?
The Simpsons, Seinfeld and of course, LOST

What is the Island
13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?
Not exactly. But I suspect there will be a "Sixth Sense" type moment where we realize something we never knew and now many subtle points that we always wondered about will make more sense
14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?
I think the image will be Desmond, down in the hatch, entering the numbers, crying, knowing that he has to live out his life this way to save everyone else.
15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?
Getting so much information I couldn't get on my own.
16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?
I'm hoping to watch all 6 seasons again this summer and then move on to something else.

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live? Started watching season 1 on DVD during 4th season and very quickly caught up.

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place? The opening scene (not the eye part, but the part where Jack comes upon the wreckage).

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost? Hurley and Chang discussing time travel in Follow the Leader.

5. What was the saddest moment for you? Dan's death.

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why? Lots but if I have to pick one I would pick Jack because he is a good person; even though he is flawed (they all are) he tries to do the right thing.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show? (Do I have to say Nikki and Paolo?) I really can't think of one offhand but how about the killing off of the socks just for the convenience of not having to deal with them anymore.

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow? Do I have to pick just one? I guess I'll say the Dharma Initiative, especially during the times our Losties were there.

9. What is your least favourite storyline? At first I said Annie's identity, but then I saw someone said Walt's specialness, and I have to agree with that one.

10. What other shows do you watch right now? Mythbusters, many from Food Network, Community, The Office, Flashforward

11. What are your all-time favourite shows? Star Treks DS9 and Voyager, Lost of course.

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6? What ever happened to Shannon's inhalers? OK for real, so many to choose from, but I like what a couple of people have said: why were these particular people chosen?

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end? I think some people will stay on island, some will get home (Jin, Sun, and Claire all have children at home), and some will die (I'm thinking Sayid and Sawyer).

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community? This place. The great thing about Lost is all the unanswered questions that we can discuss among ourselves, and here we do it (and sometimes disagree) without resorting to the name calling and general unpleasantness you can find on so many internet boards.

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over? Watch it again! and again!

Nikkie, how about a question 17, which mystery do you NOT want to see answered?

1. USA

2. Season 4; my husband & I caught up by watching daily broadcasts of S1-3 on SciFi (SyFy) channel.

3. Read articles in newspapers/mags/web about how fabulous the show is, so tuned in for ourselves and were hooked! THEN, got Nikki’s books, read along w/each SF rerun episode; THEN found Nik-at-Nite and peace & enlightenment settled all around us. ;)

4. Hurley & Charlie doing the “hula” on the “golf course” at the 1st Island Open.

5. Artz’ death (but to be honest, that ties w/#4 – please don’t think less of us...).

6. Hurley: as much as we know about him, we don’t really know much at all – and he’s the one most locked to the numbers.

10. 24; Flashforward; Psych; Leverage; White Collar; Desperate Housewives; Masterpiece Theatre.

11. Rumpole of the Bailey; The Prisoner; Vicar of Dibley.

12. “What lies at the foot of the Statue”: Jacob-ManInBlack-JohnLocke-RichardAlpert-Ben-The Island – & Desmond-Penny-Whitmore.

15. Their brilliance & terrific humor!

1. What country are you from?
USA

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?
I have been watching Lost since the beginning. Although, I have been recently rewatching all the DVDs so I can have everything fresh in my mind for the new season.

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place? The character connections, the format of the show, the mystery of the island, the music...oh god, I love the music.

5. What was the saddest moment for you? Libby dying and Hurley crying. Seeing happy Hugo cry makes me cry.

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why? I've moved around a bit over the years but I have to say it's Sawyer. I think he's the character that has grown the most and I've enjoyed every step of his journey.

The island.

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?
>Unfortunately, it wasn't the show because I knew nothing about it. I worked with Matthew Fox in the film 'We Are Marshall' and that was all the buzz around the set. Thought I'd check it out, once shooting wrapped. Good decision. :)

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?
>Ben's expression after Hurley threw a Hot Pocket at him.

5. What was the saddest moment for you?
>The ending to "Ji Yeon", Kate saying goodbye to Aaron in "Whatever Happened, Happened", and Charlie's death.

>It varies. I think, definitively, it's Locke. But I also LOVE Juliet, Eko, and Sun.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
>Waiting for an end date. Season 3 was great, but just a tad too long.

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?
>For years, I've theorized that ALL of the characters would bite the dust. But, now, given that some of them have children & loving families to go back to, I really do hope I'm wrong.

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?
>Someone's eye. Probably Jack's.

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?
>Wear black and hold a giant LOST funeral.

I've read this site for 2yrs, but have always been too intimidated to comment. However, I thought I could handle talking about myself so here goes...

1. USA

2. I watched S1 and S2 live, then got married. My wife didn’t watch it and wasn’t interested, so I missed S3. When the S3 DVD’s came out, I finally convinced her to give it a shot, so we started with S1, she fell in love and we ended up watching S1-S3 in a span of about 2wks and we BOTH have been following faithfully ever since.

3. The intrigue: a bunch of strangers stuck on a tropical island with polar bears. I wanted to see what was going to happen next.

4. Hurley, all his one-liners, talking to Jack about the island disappearing, and the I Heart Shih-Tzu’s shirt.

5. Libby dying. Poor Hurley, she was so out of his league too.

6. Should be obvious at this point: Hurley. In the beginning he seemed to be there for comic relief, but has since worked his way into being an integral part of the storyline. Plus, the comic relief.

7. Nikki and Paulo

8. How the time travel stuff pieces together.

9. I almost gave up in the middle of S2. But I held on and am so glad I did.

10. House, Chuck, 24, Burn Notice, Modern Family, Parks and Recreation, The Office, 30 Rock

11. Lost, The Office, Arrested Development, Cheers, House, Friends, The Cosby Show, The Wonder Years, Quantum Leap

12. Why is the island special…how it got its powers…

13. Not really, I tend to just read other people’s.

14. a hot pocket… I kid, the adam and eve skeletons

15. The devotion.

16. I choose not think about that right now.

salubriously said...

1. What country are you from?
USA: Unequivocally Snarky Apple

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?
I accidentally started watching season 2 one night when I turned on the TV just seeing what was on. I'd heard a bit about it, but not enough, as I was completely dumbfounded by it opening with Desmond down the hatch. Eventually I just nabbed season 1 from the library and kinda went from there.

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?
The fact that no one seemed to understand what the hell was going on intrigued me deeply!

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?
Have a cluckity cluck cluck day!

5. What was the saddest moment for you?
Charlie! Juliet! Alex! THE BUNNY!!!

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?
Sawyer. And Juliet. Just, those two over the past season especially. Sawyer's finally all grown up and *responsible*!!!

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
Allowing Michael to continue speaking, let alone letting him live.

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?
Vincent's Grand Adventure

9. What is your least favourite storyline?
The whole Love Square goin' on.

10. What other shows do you watch right now?

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?
Why only four toes?

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?
I have no freaking idea. Barring entire exposition episodes, I have no idea how they're going to wrap things up while simultaneously unraveling everything.

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?
Jack's eye.

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?
The lengths they are willing to go to decipher the episodes.

Dance around naked to "Make Your Own Kind of Music" until someone is finally able to tackle and sedate me!! XP

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD?
- right from the pilot ep.


3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?

- any sawyer nicknames

5. What was the saddest moment for you?
- the phone call from Desmond to Penny, on Christmas Eve. I actually got teary-eyed....

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?
- I have 2: Sawyer, for the eye-candy factor. but the most fascinating character is undoubtedly Ben.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
- you mean besides the infamous Nikki&Paulo? I'd say the love triangle. they dragged this on for way too long.

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?
- anything Jacob-related

9. What is your least favourite storyline?
- the love triangle (yawn!)

10. What other shows do you watch right now?

Linnea said...

1. It's the one ALL the way up there that people always say: Norway? to. Just to clarify - it's not Norway.

2. I had money. I had discivered the internet. I wished to spend my money. I saw that show LOST... hmm, never seen an episode. So i bought the first season, then I bought the nest two the next day. And after that I began to watch season 4. Seriously, all I did when I got those three DVDs was to sit in front of the TV screaming: THE NUMBERS ARE ON THE HATCH! MONSTER! SAWYER'S SHIRTLESS!

3. The mysteries. I've never come across any show like it... of course I had only ever followed one show before... but I blame it on my young age. It was the interesting story technique, flashbacks flashforwards. All the questions never bothered me, as I got to see every episode after another.

4.Season 5. When Chang questions Hurley and Hurley is awesome.

5.Charlie's death. Locke, waking up at the hospital after his daddy threw him out the window and seeing the wheelchair. We all knew what it meant to him. We all knew what would happen. But it just touched me, so tragic. Even my little sis (who had no idea what i was watching) teared up.

6.Claire. Honestly, she was cute and sweet and so calm in difference to the other crazies. Then Desmond came, and he was a brilliant character with a brilliant written past. Then Daniel started mumbling to himself while tlaking weirdly, and I lost my heart to him.

7. Making Kate say 'force of habit'when Juliet lied. ugh, annoys me. No really, the triangle/quadrangle, it was awesome in season one. Five seasons later... not so much. And Kate lying about being Aaron's mother, I'm okay with her taking care of him (even though Des/Pen had been a better choice) and loving him, but I can't understand why she lies about Claire, and why Claire's brother - Jack lets her. While Kate learns to love someone other than herself, she continues to lie. I don't get it.

8. Desmond's is always interesting. Locke's full of mythology. Ben's the scariest and most intriguing and Juliet's. Especially Juliet's, in season 3 she was so cold and then in her flashbaks she was so human. Fascinating.

9. Kate's was interesting in season one. Sort of in season two. Season three to now... hate it.

10. Supernatural, Glee, Heroes, How I Met Your Mother, Scrubs, Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Flashforward and is finally satrting to sort of watch Buffy. Yes. For the first time. Again, I blame it on my young age.

11. LOST. Nothing beats it. There's nothing like it. It's a phenomenom and I seriosuly thanked whatever gods there are that I got to live when it aired.

12. Everything. And this is not really a question - but the temple. I want to see the temple!

13. With the footage of everyone boarding the flight in the last epsiode of season 1.

Okay, I have no idea.

14. An eye opening. Or the island. Or an closing eye. Or with Vincent, rubbing his paws together with a maniac laugh!

15. The fact that we're EVERYWHERE. We make videos, trailers, we write, we write blogs, books, forum posts, fanfiction, that we podcast, talk about the show and come together that way.

16. Write. Write like never before.
And cry. A lot.
And then take a huge, red rubbon - tie it around my DVDs and to give it to my future children. Let the legacy go on!

Shari said...

1. USA (Brooklyn, NY!)

2. Been watching obsessively since it aired Day 1.

3. The beautiful location and the good looking characters at first..and then the mysteries kept me intrigued

4. Sawyer's witty nicknames

5. Charlie's death

6. I think Locke's character is the most intriguing to follow. From his past life with his father to his belief in faith, questioning his faith with the button, and regaining his faith by needing to go back.. He just gives the show its voice of destiny.

7. Not explaining the whispers

8. Besides Locke, I love Desmond&Penny's / Rose&Bernard's love stories

9. Shannon. I'm glad they killed her off early on.

10. Fringe, Modern Family, House, The Office

11. Lost (obviously), Friends, The Office, Fresh Prince of Bel Air

12. What happened to Claire? and Why is only the foot left of the statue?

13. I wish I had a clue but I got nothing.

14. An eye opening.

15. I love how you can sit and talk with any LOST fan for hours. Your ideas are never wrong because anything is possible and its so easy to be able to check out other theories and ideas.

16. Cry...then watch them all over again.

It was completely different from everything else on TV at the time, and it was an incredibly well written and executed pilot. I was hooked from the start.

I can't pinpoint anything in particular, but Hurley pretty much cracks me up all the time. Actually, the one time Hurley tried to insult Sawyer back pretty much killed me

How open and warm and receptive they are to everyone.

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?

Teebore said...

1. USA-MN.

2. I watched the pilot, then caught random episodes because Smallville was on at the same time and I was stupidly committed to that until I finally gave up on it. "Do No Harm" was the episode from which I watched every subsequent episode as it aired.

Sadly, I missed
"Walkabout" when it first aired, otherwise I'd probably have abandoned Smallville even sooner.

3. Probably the serialization, the fact that the show wasn't "done in one" eps, that each episode told a complete story that was also part of a greater story.

4. Chang's interrogation of Hurley.

5. Probably Juliet's death, specifically Sawyer's heartbreak as he held onto (and let go of) her. I was never a big Charlie fan (blasphemous, I know) but his death comes in a close second, which is a testement to how moving it was.

6. Desmond. He's kinda the nexus of some of the shows biggest mysteries (the DI, time travel, Widmore, Hawking) and stands apart from the other survivors because of his different circumsances. There's tragedy to the character, which is always compelling, but thus far, he's had a bit more of a happy ending that Lost's other tragically compelling character, Locke, so his tragedy is tempered a bit.

Daniel is probably a close second, just because the character is so riveting.

7. Centering a major plot arc and accompanying mystery around Walt while failing to realize the actor would grow faster than their story, forcing them to downplay/sidestep/outright ignore what seemed at the time a pivotal element of the show's mythology.

See also: Libby. But that's more on the actress than the writers.

8. Jacob/The Others. Their deal, their history with the island, just because that seems to encompass so many of the other mysterious elements of the show's mythology.

9. It used to be Jack's daddy issues (if I saw ONE more flashback about that...) but I'm starting to appreciate their signifcance to the show. So I'll go with the Jack-Kate-Sawyer triangle. Love triangles in general always bug me, and this one is even worse because two of the three involved generally annoy me to no end.

10. Staring at the beginning of the week: The Fox animated comedies, How I Met Your Mother, Big Bang Theory, 24, Heroes, Castle, the Closer, Better Off Ted, Human Target, Modern Family, South Park, Top Chef, Community, 30 Rock, Project Runway, Burn Notice, The Clone Wars, and the Soup. And Good Eats reruns, whenever I can.

Yeah, I watch a lot of TV. But that aren't all on at the same time of the year...

11. In no particular order, Lost, Buffy, Angel, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and the Simpsons.

12. Stuff relating to the Others. Where did they come from? Why are some at the Temple, some w/Richard. How do they pick their leaders? Why do they sometimes seem supernatural? Why was kidnapped Cindy so cool to be hanging out with them? Why can't they have babies?

13.Not at all. I leave the theorizing to greater minds. There are things I'd LIKE to have happen, of course, but I have n great "this will happen" theory myself.

14. An eye opening.

15. This blog. Seriously. Both for the wonderful work Nikki does and the frequent commenters I daresay I consider friends.

16. Be depressed. Really depressed. Commiserate here. Wait for Nikki's sixth season book (and hopefully a full show retrospective book). Start the first of many rewatches from the beginning. Hope another show as captivating and well made as this one comes along in my lifetime.

Oh, yeah, I also watch V and Flashforward, two new shows that aren't airing right now so I forgot about them. And Glee, of course. Dang.

And since I forgot my favorite shows aren't limited to just five, I'll add Arrested Development, Firefly, King of the Hill, Futurama, Family Guy, Friends and Beverly Hills, 90210 to that list.

And I should have mentioned the Bentham discpreancies as the biggest misstep, just because I'm petty enough that it taints my enjoyment of that otherwise excellent episode so I can't fully enjoy it, and that one was no one's fault except the writers.

Chuck Power said...

1. What country are you from?
USA

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?
Watched the first 3 seasons on DVD. Been live since the beginning of 4.

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?
The show is not dumbed down. It doesn't play to the lowest common denominator like a lot of shows. Plus the actors, characters, and writing are really great.

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?
I love when Jack is running towrds the camera from Dharmaville and it turns out he is playing football with Tom Friendly. I crack up every time I see him spike the ball.

5. What was the saddest moment for you?
When Hurley decides to follow Locke and he gives the speech about following his friend Charlie, that always gets to me even more than the scene of Charlie dying.

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?
I don't think that I have an actual favorite, but I am glued to the screen any time Ben Linus is on it.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
I don't like to nitpick. There hasn't been anything that was so glaring that it took me out of the story. Nikki and Paulo sucked but they cleaned that up so I'm happy.

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?
I love the time travel elements and how thing can be affected or changed by things done in the past.

9. What is your least favourite storyline?
I'm not on board yet with the "He who lives beneath the statue" crew. That could change with season 6, but they just feel jammed in at the moment.

10. What other shows do you watch right now?
Fringe, Flash Forward, It's Always Sunny, Heroes. Plus I've been catching some really great Brit comedies on Netflix, The Mighty Boosh, The IT Crowd. Really funny stuff.

11. What are your all-time favourite shows?
Lost(goes without saying)
Northern Exposure
Twin Peaks
Freaks and Geeks
Buffy
The Young Ones

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?
It's a relatively new question, but what the hell is the deal with Jacob and the Man in Black?

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?
I think that the bomb will cause a reset, but in the end things will course correct and they will still end up on the plane and on the island.

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?
I think that it will be Jack waking up in the jungle just like the first scene of season 1.

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?
I love that everyone is very involved in investigating all of the mysteries of the show. I am always especially impressed with the work people do right here on Nikki's blog. This is really a great group of Lost fans.

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?
I'll probably have a big finale party. Then if nothing else can fill the void, I'll probably roam the Earth and get into adventures like Caine from Kung Fu.

1. What country are you from?
Texas (haha-joke at Tx arrogance) but seriously, Texas. :-)

2. From the start or dvd?

13. Lost's end: no theory and avoidance of theories as I just want to enjoy the ride

15. Fav thing 'bout Lost Community: true Lost fans are wicked smart. Plain and simple.

16. Post Lost plans: cry and mourn, mourn and cry, write Disney about Bunnytown (#11)

Chuck Power said...

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be? I bet it will be the crash site

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?
I have spent hours and hours on sites since my first episode (and yes -I do have a life and family) I never, never did this before after watching an episode of any other series. The fans, the blogs, the theories are what is on Tpo of it the best thing about Lost.

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over? After crying for 4-6 weeks I start all over again. Seriously I don't know. I hope Darlton come up whith a nwe great show....

1. What country are you from? U.S.A.

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live? From the very beginning.

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place? When I saw that Dominic Monaghan was in the cast. Already a fan from The Lord of the Rings.

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost? When Hurley beat the stuffing out of Sawyer for his legacy of nicknames.

5. What was the saddest moment for you? When Juliet fell down the Swan shaft in “The Incident”.

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why? Hard to choose, but I think Hurley has a slight edge.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show? Not working harder to end the writers’ strike sooner!

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow? All the path-crossing, interconnectedness of all the main characters.

9. What is your least favourite storyline? It’s a toss-up between all the ships and Nikki & Paulo.

10. What other shows do you watch right now? Fringe, 24, FlashForward, V, Modern Marvels, How It’s Made, Mythbusters, Dirty Jobs, Malcolm in the Middle (in syndication), The Simpsons, South Park, Family Guy, Eureka (on hiatus until summer)

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be? Doc Jensen at EW suggested one that I like a lot. It basically recreates the beach scene with Jacob and the Man in Black from the beginning of “The Incident”, only Ben and Locke have taken their places! “Do you know how badly I want to kill you?”

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community? This blog, right here!

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over? I’m going to finish the runs of all my current shows, and then I’m breaking up with network TV. I’m so sick of network suits canceling shows I like. I’m building a very nice DVD library, chock full of movies and shows I love. As I’ve said before, I will wait until I’ve heard sufficient praise for a show, and if I’m really interested, I’ll buy the DVDs. Arrested Development has made it onto my shopping list, and I’m sure there will be others.

tsavonglah said...

1. What country are you from?
Germany, now living in Austria.

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?
Started watching it when the 1st season aired in Germany in 2005. After the second season, I switched over to the US version to not be that far behind and get the more original feeling.

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?
How the character stories were so complex and that it did encourage you to use your mind while watching it. Also the big mind twisters, especially Locke in a wheelchair in Walkabout.

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?
Oh, there are so many to remember! To my mind comes the "pee on it!" scene with Jin and Hurley.

5. What was the saddest moment for you?
Charlie's death scene. Nuff said.

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?
John Locke. Because I see parts of me in him and his quest to understand/protect the Island because of his faith into it.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
Benjamin Linus and the Desmond/Penny storyline....HA, gotcha! No, of course Nikki/Paulo

the Kate/Jack/Sawyer shipper stuff

The Clone Wars, Fringe, Smallville, Caprica, Chuck, Dollhouse (Well, not anymore) and Stromberg (German version of The Office)

11. What are your all-time favourite shows?
LOST, Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, The Simpsons, Dollhouse

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?
What happened to Locke and will we see him live again.

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?
Nope, I'll let me be surprised. If I would speculate, I would get the nosebleed ;)

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?
A title card named FOUND, maybe even the Island getting destroyed.

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?
All the different opinions/thoughts and how gladly they share experiences and information (except spoilers of course).

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?
Take a month off and then mainline the hole series.

ariel said...

I've been following this blog since season 2 and really love reading it to get more insight into the story, and I am constantly amazed at all the tiny details some people catch. This season I am going to tape the show so I can watch it again after reading Nikki's recap.

1. USA- NY/NY.
2. From the get-go.
3. The mystery, the cast, the acting, the fact that it takes place near the ocean (I was a mermaid in my former life, or will be in a future incarnation.
4. Any conversation between Hugo and Miles.
5. Juliet falling down the shaft and professing her love for Sawyer and his almost-breakdown.
6. Sawyer for his animal sexiness; Ben for his split/ironic/ maddening personality (a tribute to Michael Emerson's acting chops).
7. Dropping the Walt story.
8. The mysteries and paradoxes of time travel.
9.All the goings-on on the freighter.
10. Mad Men, Damages, House, Nip/Tuck!, Nurse Jackie, Weeds, True Blood.
11. Lost (duh!), Sopranos, Star Trek, Six Feet Under, All in the Family, MASH, Seinfeld.
12. The real meaning of the time travel and who or what is Vincent.
13. I think they are all going to end up on the Island forever, but whether they will be dead or alive I haven't a clue.
14. Two eyes, different colors.
15. Everyone's sense of humor
16. Get back to work!

Word verif: disee- the one who is dissed

glf said...

1. What country are you from?
Australia

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning..? Yes but nearly dropped out end of S1 as it found the Walt kidnapping a bit hard to take

3. What drew you in in the first place?
Liked the survivor/mystery/puzzle elements to it

4. Funniest moment on Lost?
Jesus is not a weapon, OK dude I’m from the future

5. Saddest moment for you?
Sun crying over Jin’s grave

6. Favourite character and why?
Hurley – he’s us (viewer’s viewpoint), he’s cool, and he gets things done

7. Te biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
It has to be Nikki & Paulo- firstly the idea was not necessary + secondly it was badly executed; and otherwise all the great setups in S4 that were poorly followed through

8. Favourite storyline to follow?
The Desmond storyline has been the strongest (well so far)

9. Least favourite storyline?
Juliet – I’m sorry but I find her too controlled and cold and I still don’t see the point of her seeming she never revealed anything much at all about the Others

10. What other shows do you watch right now?
SGU, Flashforward (but still not sure), Glee, The Office, The Fixer, Trawlermen, Mythbusters, Man v Wild, Supernatural, 24

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?
Why them?

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?
Who knows but maybe the Valenzetti Equation is overcome by the 815 chosen ones. I know we’ve been told it’s all about our main characters getting a second chance but if they do where does it take them?

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?
Vincent’s nose on the screen (fantasy wish) – seriously it’ll be Jack’s eye closing or the island disappearing

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?
The friendly blogs (like this one) that explain the nuances.

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?
Have a long break from it (coz I know I’ll not be completely happy about the finale) while I wait for the super extended version full box set and Nikki’s final book.

shanannigans said...

1.) I'm in California, USA

2.) I have been watching Lost since the very 1st episode + I have watched the DVD's a couple times.

3.) I was drawn to the show immediately because it looked different, and smart, and weird... and it has really lived up to all those expectations!

4.) Funniest moment? - The Hurley/Sawyer exchange in "Tricia Tanaka is Dead" (Season 3). Sawyer calls Hurley Jumbotron, and Hurley says "Shut up, red... neck... man." and Sawyer replies "Touche!"

5.) Saddest moment? - Charlie dying, and Claire not even finding his ring.

6.) Favorite character? - Sawyer - he the handsomest, the wittiest, and the character who has shown the most growth.

7.) The biggest misstep? - Claire's whole story. The timeline is screwy w/ the mom in a coma and Christian's "confrontation" w/ her in Australia, plus the "Aaron must be raised by only her" thing - but then she disappears into the jungle, and was that psychic even really psychic, or what?! I sincerely hope they tie up some of her loose ends in this season.

8.) Favorite storyline? - Locke's!

9.) Least favorite storyline? - Friggin' Rose and Bernard, I despise them.

10.) Other shows? All My Children (LOL - totally the intellectual opposite of Lost, I know)

11.) All time favorite shows? - Lost, X-Files, Arrested Development

12.) Biggest question I want answers to? - Who is the Man in Black?! He & Jacob seem to be the key to the whole thing.

13.) Theory on the ending? - No, I'm so confused! I just saw a preview (during a commercial-break in All My Children - ha!), and now I'm even more confused than ever!

14.) Last image of the series? - I don't even want to guess - and I hope it's something I wouldn't be able to guess anyways! I count on Lost to surprise me, to keep me on my toes... it would be severely disappointing if I predicted the end.

15.) Favorite thing about the Lost community? - I'm new here, so I don't know, but I have Nikki's "Finding Lost" guides, and they have been profoundly useful to me - I hope to get similar insights from the community forums this season.

16.) What do I plan to do when it's all over? - Break out the DVD's and watch it all again!

Erin said...

1. I'm from Canada.
2. I saw the Season 2 finale and was hooked. After that we watched all of season 1 and 2 on DVD to get ready for Season 3. So hard to just get 6 episodes and then wait for several more months!
3. The mystery. I wanted to know who those Portuguese guys were! It was just all so intriguing and I was drawn in instantly.
4. I loved the bit when Hurley's mom said, "Why is there a dead Pakistani on my couch?" and the time that Hurley tricked Sawyer into being nice to all the losties. When he complimented Claire on the baby... that was hilarious!
5. When Sawyer killed Cooper and it didn't bring him the peace he was hoping for. And when Hurley told Libby he was sorry he forgot the blankets. And when Charlie died. Let's just say LOST makes me cry fairly regularly.
6. Sawyer. I love him. And not just because he's a pretty face. He makes me laugh. He's smart. I love that he's always reading. I think his character has developed so much.
7. Introducing Nikki and Paolo. Ick.
8. I love the Desmond/Penny storyline. I want to know why Desmond is so special and how come the rules of time travel don't really apply to him.
9. Really not a fan of Sawyer and Juliet as a couple.
10. The Office, Dr Who
11. LOST is the only one I'd call an all-time favourite. It's the only show I have ever watched over and over and over again.
12. Why/how are all the people connected? Were they destined to come to the island? Did Jacob BRING them there?
13. No. And I don't even really like to think about it. My heart will be broken. There will be much weeping.
14. Jack's eye.
15. The thoughtful, intelligent, insightful, funny things we can all share together here about our favourite show. And I love when someone comes up with a new theory!
16. Go back to Season 1, The Pilot, and start again!

Charlie's and Juliet's deaths

Not following through on certain story lines (Walt's specialness, Libby connection) I hope Darlton can help with this (hint hint)

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?
The overall storyline of good and evil. After all we still don't really know WHO is WHICH

Fred said...

1. What country are you from?

On an island (no kidding) in Canada.

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?

Live from the first whoosh, and that cool 180 degree pan on the beach with Jack.

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?

Commercials, commericals, commercials, and beer night.

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?

Oh so many. Miles and Hurley interactions, mostly.

5. What was the saddest moment for you?

When Locke beat the crap out of Charlie. Charlie had been trying so hard, and Locke just took all his own anger and frustration out on Charlie. How alone Charlie must have felt. So very sad.

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?

Ben Linus. When I grow up I want to be like Ben. Seriously, he has such cool lines, and wouldn't you like to go through a whole day just messing with people's minds?

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?

Misstep, but not one the showrunners could do anything about was Season 4 being cut short. It made the season, action packed, but so much of the story of the Frieghter folk was lost, and that's a main part of coming to this show--the melodramatic storylines of people. Aside from the smoke monster.

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?

Strangely enough, the one we haven't gotten--Richard Alpert. I am intrigued by who he is. All the other characters we did get. After that Sayid. Not enough Sayid backstory.

9. What is your least favourite storyline?

The Achara/Jack storyline. Fills in how he got his tattoo. Otherwise too colonialist and cliche.

10. What other shows do you watch right now?

Lots of stuff on DVD, like Slings and Arrows, Buffy, and Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. Otherwise, current sci-fi or crime drama--the usual suspects on t.v. Simpsons fills all categories.

11. What are your all-time favourite shows?

Get Smart, Gilligan's Island, X-Files, Magnum PI, Northern Exposure, Boston Legal (thank heavens for DVD).

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?

What is the island?

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?

Yes.

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?

A snowglobe with an island in it. Desmond making a snowman on the beach. Sawyer finding a stash of beer next to the frozen wheel and deciding to stop and have a cold one instead to turning the wheel.

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?

Freindly, and most insightful, Love all the little asides, like verification word.

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?

Sit down, open a cold beer, and push the button to begin the rewatch. Again.

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?

Gerald Orr said...

1. What country are you from?
United States
2. Have you been watching from start or DVR?
Right from the very start in 2004.
3. What is about Lost that drew you in?
Loved it from the start but I was a fan for life after the airing of "Walkabout".It was the best dramatic hour I had seen since "A Hole In The World" during Angel's final season.

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?

Hot Pocket Hurley...I laughed for about 2 minutes straight and then reversed back and played back the scene about 10 times more.

5. What was the saddest moment for you?

Seeing a defeated John Locke step up on a the table ,take out an extension cord, and prepare to hang himself in "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham ".To see my hero defeated and broken like that and ready to end his life feeling that he really wasn't special anymore made me sit quietly in tears for a good 10 minutes.

6. Who is your favorite character and why?

John Locke because he embodies what everyone truly wishes to be, special.To see the journey this character has taken since the first episode to the night before the season premiere it is astounding.I have felt every moment of disappointment, fear, hope, joy that Locke has experienced.If there is one thing I hope happens in this final season is that John Locke truly is proven to be the chosen one and wasn't just a patsy.Oh yeah, would be great if he is resurrected first.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep pf the show?

Definitely not planning ahead to compensate for Walt's age difference in looks due to the actor aging.It always seemed like Walt was a special young man and his potential was never fully explored or only because of the writers/producers not wanting Malcolm David Kelly appear on screen making it look like Walt aged 5 years in the course of 3-4 months Island time.

8. What is your favorite storyline to follow?

John Locke in a tie with The Island's mythology as a whole.

9. What is your least favorite storyline?

The Jack,Kate,Sawyer triangle.Make up your mind already Kate.

10. What other shows do you watch right now?

Fringe, Dollhouse (not anymore sadly), Glee, Sons of Anarchy,Men of A Certain Age,Dexter,True Blood,The Office,30 Rock,Parks & Recreation,Community, Better Off Ted,Cougar Town, Modern Family,Nip/Tuck,Supernatural,FridayNight Lights

11. What are your all time favorite shows?

LOST, The Wire, Buffy, Angel, Arrested Development, Freaks & Geeks, Felicity, The Office, The Simpsons, Pushing Daisies, Firefly,
Dollhouse, The X-Files

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost season 6?

What is The Island and who really are Jacob & MIB?

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?I think it will end with Locke fulfilling his
with Jack by his side.Possibly the game ending once and for all and the Island is destroyed.

14. It's been said that the series will end on final image.What do you think it will be?

I think it will end with Jack passing on and his eyes slowly flicker to close from his POV.Or possibly everything is on a loop and the final image is Jack or Locke's eye opening.Whatever it is ,I'm confident in the entire cast and crew that it will be epic.

15. What's your favorite thing about the Lost community?

Having intelligent conversations with fine people such as the reader's here on Nik at Nite or Nikki herself about the greatest and most ambitous television entertainment ever.

16. What do you plan to do when it's all over?

Start rewatching again from the 1st episode to see if Darlton were true in saying "they had the core of the show and it's mysteries planned from day one", also just to experience this magical journey again.I will probably go to Hawaii in the summer or fall and visit all the locations used during the shows 6 seasons.Take care everyone.Thank you Nikki for this fun and thoughtful questionairre.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
Ana Lucia. In general. Don't like the character or the actress who portrayed her. "I couldn't even kill him." Cringe-worthy line.

Maybe Claire's backstory?

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?
Jack's eye?

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?

I started watching the DVDs between Seasons 2 and 3. Then read a book about it, then several more, and finally found one I liked. When Season 3 started, I had to find out if the author had a website with weekly episode recaps, and sure enough, Nikki did. I've been a regular here ever since.

Jack looking down the Swan hole after dropping a nuke to see why didn't explode.

Daniel Farraday, because he makes physics look cool.

The debates.

Batcabbage said...

1. Australia.

2. Right from the beginning.

3. I saw the ad for the first episode and thought 'What's that then? Looks mysterious. Hope it's good.' I haven't been disappointed.

4. Hurley's Mum: "Jesus Christ is not a weapon."

5. Hurley finding out that Charlie died.

6. Locke, because after all the bad stuff that's happened to him, he found a purpose on the Island. His arc on and off the Island just intrigued me.

7. At first I was going to say losing Brian K Vaughan from the writing staff, but that's not what you mean, is it? :) I'd say leaving the Libby sub-plot hanging for so long.

8. Locke and his journey from crippled man to leader of the Others to Zombie.

9. NIKKI AND PAULO!!!!

10. Fringe, Caprica (for now), Being Human, Damages, Family Guy, American Dad, Human Target.

11. Lost, Deadwood, Arrested Development, The Young Ones, Blackadder (series 2-4), The Sopranos.

12. What's the true nature of Jacob?

13. Not really. Thinking about it makes my brain hurt.

14. Locke's eye. Who's said it will, by the way? I hadn't heard that (that it will be a single image).

15. The people who frequent Nik at Nite. And Nik!

16. REWATCH!!!

Achira (is that her name?), and never wrapping up Libby's backstory.

The sharing of ideas and theories, and seeing how genius other people in the community are.

1. What country are you from?
Canada!

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?
From the very first episode :)

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?
The beaches, the plane crash, the characters seemed interesting, and then the questions I had after the first episode! I just HAD to find out what was going to happen (We still dont have the answers to some of those initial questions!)

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?
So many! Hurley and Ben sharing the Apollo bar, Sawyers one-liners, but probably above all, Hurley's mom saying "Jesus is not a weapon!" or "Why is there a dead Pakistani on my couch?"

5. What was the saddest moment for you?
Season 5 finale! I cried for two hours (right up until I fell asleep) and then the next day when I was talking about it with my Lost friends. And I'm not even joking.

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?
Juliet!!!! And Locke (before he gets taken over by Jacob's nemisis, that is)
I love Juliet because she is so real, smart, and funny ("You sleeping with the doc?" "No, are you?"), and Elizabeth Mitchell is my all time favourite actress. I love Juliet so much, and every scene she's in.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
Nikki and Paulo. Ehough said.

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?
Anything to do with Juliet. And, as much as I love the flashbacks/forewards, I really really love the island storylines, and anything that takes place there. And the others, they intrest me so much!

9. What is your least favourite storyline?
Jack being a jackass, and Kate playing her mind games. It also made me mad when Claire kept changing her mind about Charlie and whether or not she found him appropriate to "be around her baby".

10. What other shows do you watch right now?
House, Grey's Anatomy, V (when I remember. And soley for Elizabeth Mitchell, I'm not a huge an of alein related topics)

11. What are your all-time favourite shows?
LOST, Lost, Lost, Lost, House, Grey's, and Lost.

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?

And what are the Others? And WHY doesn't RICHARD AGE?!?!?! Just how OLD IS he?!

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?
No way, man! Way too unpredictable. I could try to guess, but I know I'd be WAY off!
All I know is that its going to be AWESOME.

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?
Jacks eye, if I had to guess, but everyone thinks that! I hope the writers do something different (which they probably will, knowing them.)


15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?
It proves to me that I'm not the only Lost-crazed person out there! I learn so much from you guys, and I think I would go slightly mad without you all. ♥

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?
Watch it over and over and over on my dvds untill all I say are lines from the shows, at which point my mother (I live at home! I'm just sixteen!) will put me in the mental institution (With Hurley!?) because she can no longer deal with me. :D

Right from the beginning

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?
I was a big fan of Matthew Fox from the Party of Five days so I thought I'd give it a look. The first episode was just so different from what I had expected that I was hooked from the start.

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?
Tough one but I think I'll go with Hurley and the hot pocket.

5. What was the saddest moment for you?
I'm a real baby when I get caught up in my shows so there have been many. The saddest for me was when Charlie died.

Sawyer - I love his nicknames and his whole attitude - tough on the outside but a real softie inside.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
Walt's storyline. It started out as something so important then just fizzled out because the actor grew.

Nikki and Paolo - need I say more?

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?
An eye closing.

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?

Hurley.

Death of Ana-Lucia and Libby in Two for the Road.

Killing three females in one season. Highly misogynistic.

Jenn said...

1. Canada

2. I started watching Lost live for the premiere of S4.

3. A friend recommended it—she also recommended Six Feet Under and Dexter, so she's clearly trustworthy!

4. The pizza pocket, and when Charlie calls Aaron Turniphead.

5. Charlie's death:(

6. Charlie! And Sawyer. And Ben.

7. Not sure

8. All of them!

9. When Sawyer killed Not-Sawyer, and then Locke's Dad. I didn't like seeing Sawyer as a killer.

10. Smallville, Flashforward, Glee, V, House

11. Smallville, Six Feet Under, Dexter, Lost

12. The numbers! Richard Alpert!

13. I have no idea, but I can't wait!

14. Jack's eye, of course! To come full circle, as it opened on his eye.

15. Everybody is so nice, and nobody attacks anyone else for crazy ideas and theories.

16. Start a Smallville rewatch blog! Haha

Jenn said...

Another funny moment was Ben's response to Jack's , "How can you read right now?"
"My mother taught me."

And also from Ben:
"I'm a Pisces."

Sara said...

1. USA

2. From the beginning.

3. It was a kick-ass pilot that sucked me in immediately, filled with characters who were intriguing right from the start.

4. Hurley and the gang getting the Dharma van working.

5. Juliet falling down the drill hole. Wept like a baby. For days.

6. Juliet. To me, she's been one of the most complex and fascinating characters on the show.

7. Not insisting on an end date from the start.

8. Man, it's hard to pick just one favorite. I'll go with Sawyer's development from con man into a decent, solid guy you could depend on—withoutlosing what made him uniquely Sawyer.

9. The whole Jack/Kate/Sawyer thing. And I felt that way before Juliet entered the picture. ;)

10. Fringe, Glee, Friday Night Lights, Supernatural, Big Bang Theory, Being Erica, Chuck, Castle, Burn Notice, The Good Wife, Bones, NCIS.

11. Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Alias, Lost, Friday Night Lights.

12. I honestly don't have any questions I absolutely need or want to have answered; I'm just looking forward to finding out how the story ends.

13. Not the slightest clue.

14. Jack's eye.

15. The intelligence and thoughtfulness of Lost fans.

16. I'm sure I'll mourn for a while. Then, at some point, I'll go back and watch the whole thing from the beginning again.

Joan Crawford said...

1) Canada

2) I didn't start watching live until season 3. I caught up with DVD's in a few weeks. I don't remember what drew me but I am willing to bet it had to do with Sayid

3) Torcha scrunchie. That and an amazing storyline.

4) Anything Mama Reyes says. Love her! And when Hurley's dad says "Your mother is a very passionate woman".

5)Hmm. Juliet's death, Charlie's demise and whenever Hurley is sad.

6) Sayid. He is just so...capable and brave and even though he does bad stuff - he still wants to fight the good fight. I respect that. Ben and Locke are tied for second.

7) N&P and Bai Ling - wtf?

8) John Locke's

9) Jack's - he doesn't really have a story. His life wasn't bad - he was just a baby who skewed things to fit his pity-party. Poor little rich boy ;_;

10) Love it or List it, Come Dine With Me, Dragon's Den, and I am ashamed to admit it but, Cold Case reruns. I know, I know but I likes me a predictable cry.

11) LOST, King of the Hill, Simpsons, ROME

12) Smoke monster - the statue - the island

13) No! I am able to clear my mind of all thought and just enjoy the ride. I do this on purpose...yeah.

14) Vincent gnawing on the bones of Adam and Eve.

15) Everyone here is very considerate and thoughtful and funny. I really look forward to reading everyone's comments (both Lost related and random)

16) Go into therapy. "No, YOU have a problem, lady! Luckily, I can cure you by giving you these DVDs to watch."

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?

--> Is Vincent the snake monster? jk jk
--> Is it all really just a game? Why are Jacob/MiB playing this game? What is the deal with Richard? Why were these people chosen? Had they not been chosen, how much of/far back would their lives have changed? How much has Jacobs/MiB influenced their lives?

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?

--> Yes. The end of the loop, where Jacob/MiB wins and the Losties go on with their lives. The end - It only ends once.

--> Jack, dead. Eye open or closed.

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?

--> so insightful and interesting, and similarly obsessed. As a wise man said, I can let my freak flag fly. Also, the parodies.

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?

--> When I say Re, you say Watch, Re-Watch!, Re-Watch! Cry, Surf for theories, finish the lost book list, repeat.

Sweet muffins! The count here was already up to about 61 when I sat down to answer the questionnaire this afternoon. I didn't get to it then because I got busy eavesdropping on a Lost conversation happening about 10 feet away — since posted in another recent Comments section. Now it's up to 92 and I have lots of reading to do. You're a veritable guru, Ms. Stafford.
...
1. USA
2. From the beginning.
3. I guess J.J. Abrams and maybe some good advance reviews.
4. Ben: "I'm a pisces." (A close runner-up? Richard: "It's a compass, John. It... points north." Of course, before Season 5 I wasn't really writing anything down or discussing lines to the point where they're permanently lodged in my brain.)
5. Charlie's death. Sometimes all I really want out of the very end is to see him, Claire, and Aaron being domestic in whatever kind of twilight pseudo-afterlife the Island affords, perhaps even with Rose and Bernard — or even the bunch of them just smiling happily upon whomever's left standing, like the ghostly trio at the end of Jedi.
6. I don't know if I have a favorite. Like with the Muppets, I say, oh, Kermit, of course, except no, it's really Grover, and yet none of them make me laugh like Animal does. I suppose Richard is the most captivating, but if he turns out to be dastardly then you can have him; also, I could stare at Claire for a long, long time if it wouldn't make her uncomfortable, in which case chatting over imaginary peanut butter is fine too.
7. The general continuity screw-ups are just galling, all the more so because they know we're watching so closely. (Why? They asked us to.)
8-9. I honestly think of it all as one big storyline. There have been detours that weren't so hot, and maybe ones that really excited me that would come to mind if I cogitated on it, but nothing jumps out.
10. 24, 30 Rock, Big Love, Bones, Breaking Bad, Castle, Chuck, The Colbert Report, CSI: Las Vegas, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Fringe, How I Met Your Mother, The Late Show with David Letterman, Life Unexpected, Mad Men, Modern Family, Supernatural, True Blood — many of which I fall behind on regularly or only watch on DVD.
11. 30 Rock, Alias, the Batman/Superman Adventures canon, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Colbert Report, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Electric Company, Friends, Gilmore Girls, various Hanna-Barbera series, How I Met Your Mother, Lost, The Muppet Show, My So-Called Life, NYPD Blue, Saturday Night Live, the Star Trek canon, the Super Friends canon, Supernatural, Veronica Mars, The West Wing, The X-Files — with an insane number of quality shows not on the list because I haven't experienced them yet.
12. I have faith that the Island, Jacob, and Smokey will be explained to a certain level of satisfaction, so I would probably say the interconnectedness of the characters and the Numbers; if they're not part of the destiny or experiment or whatever the heck is the cosmology of the Island, Jacob, and Smokey, but rather are left as separate coincidence, I shall be royally plunked off.
13. I really don't, no.
14. I think that an eye or some other callback is likely, but it may also just be some kind of slow crane shot up from the Island after a resolution or epilogue that nudges us in a la plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose sort of thing. I hadn't heard this either, by the way, or if I did I don't remember it. I admit that I would kind-of love it to be Frank having another "We're not going to Guam, are we" moment.
15. That the cool people post here and the trolls mostly stay away.
16. When it's all what now?

Blam said...

Ooh! Glee. I really adore Glee in all its uneven, imperfect go-for-broke grooviness. And I'm sure that's the only thing I left off of either my TV lists. Really.

Benny said...

@Joan HA, Vincent gnawing on Adam & Eve!
Would be legend - wait for it - dary!

How about this one for a final image: John & Jack shaking hands.


I understand (and agree) there were a few missteps in some season 3 stories, but since the writers were trying to find ways to stretch the show for an unknown number of seasons, I'd say I OK to let that slip. After all, there's still one tattoo we don't know the story of ;)


Love reading everyone's biopics! Can't wait for tomorrow - has anyone else seen the new trailer?

SonshineMusic said...

1. What country are you from? USA

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? I wanted to watch it from the beginning, but didn't start until right before S4. It was the LONGEST wait for S4 to finish and come out on DVD. S5 was the first season I saw live and it was also when I discovered Nikki's blog in the "nik" of time :)

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place? Time for total honesty - I wanted to watch Lost because of Dominic Monaghan. Though I love(d) the Charlie/Claire arc, the story and the mystery and the characters quickly made me love the show for all it is.

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost? Top 2: When Hurley throws the Hot Pocket at Ben and when Sawyer and co. are in the boat and it flashes and he says, "Thank you, Lord!" Then it's pouring and he screams, "I take that back!"

5. What was the saddest moment for you? Charlie's "greatest hits" list. Although I always cry at his death, I sob like a freak as he's writing that list.

6. Who is your favourite character and why? Do I have to choose only one? If I have to choose, I would say Ben. During the rewatch I got practically giddy every time he was on screen. I have loved him and his wily ways since the first introduction of Henry Gale. (Close runner up is most definitely Sawyer he had me from the moment he read Watership Down :D)

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show? I can't think of anything off the top of my head.

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow? Ben's story. I've loved seeing how they've slowly peeled back the layers and I'm dying to see what his real role is in all of this. Is he actually important? Or has he been a pawn? What is the rest of his history with Widmore?

9. What is your least favourite storyline? Jack's. I know he's like the "main" character, but I cannot stand him and the more I learn of his past the more he ticks me off. I honestly could care less what happens to him in the end.

10. What other shows do you watch right now? Castle, NCIS, NCIS:LA, Scrubs, Vampire Diaries, FlashForward

11. What are your all-time favourite shows? Castle, NCIS, StarGate SG-1, StarGate Atlantis, Pretender, ST: Voyager, Early Edition, Cosby Show, Friends, Tale Spin, Pinky and the Brain

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6? Who exactly are Jacob and the MiB and how are they connected to Smokey and the Island?

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end? I really don't think about this much, but I hope they stay away from it being a dream or purgatory or the like.

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be? An Eye

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community? How intensely we get into it. I don't know of any other show where you can debate so fiercely and so passionately about the tiniest little plot points. I love being here the most because we do all that without getting nasty or in your face about it. And because you are all crazy like me :)

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over? WAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!! ;-; ;-; ;-; ;-; I will probably get depressed and then I think some of us should do some sort of other watch together like Buffy or Alias or something so we don't go through community withdrawal as well as Lost withdrawal. Thinking of losing Lost makes me sad, but thinking of losing all of you wonderfully bizarre people makes me even sadder - more sad? whatever.

I found this quote today and it is an absolutely wonderful one that describes how I feel about all of you - "Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, "What! You too? I thought I was the only one." ~ C. S. Lewis

PSE said...

Long-time reader and fan of Nikki's books and this blog; first-time poster.

1. What country?
USA (Ohio)

2. When did you start watching?
From the first moment of the first episode.

3. What drew you in?
Good reviews made me curious; great character development and storytelling had me hooked from episode 1 on.

4. Funniest moment?
Many, but for this moment I'll pick Ben: "I'm a Pisces."

5. Saddest moment?
Deaths of Daniel and Locke/Bentham. And Juliet.

6. Favorite character?
Can't pick just one; I'm fascinated by most of the characters most of the time.

7. Biggest misstep the writers have made?
Writing is hard, so I forgive the writers for their less-than-greatest hits. Every episode had something that made it worthwhile.

8. Favorite storyline?
Again, too many to list just one.

9. Least favorite storyline?
I no longer remember what didn't seem compelling to me at first viewing.

10. What else do you watch now?
Must-sees this season are MadMen, Glee, & The Good Wife (but not when the latter two air opposite Lost later this season).

11. All-time favorite shows?
Besides Lost? Mary Tyler Moore, Newhart, Family, My So Called Life, Sports Night, some of X-Files & Twin Peaks (yeah, I've been watching TV for a lot of years...). More recently, West Wing, Damages, MadMen, and Buffy!

12. Biggest questions you want answered in season 6?
Destiny or free will? Science or faith? (And why are these people on the island?)

13. A theory on how Lost is going to end?
I'm content to let these masterful writers end the series as they want to.

14. Single image for the ending?
An eye, I suppose.

15. Favorite thing about the Lost fan community?
Their incredible dedication to digging up all the references, trivia, and Easter eggs so I don't have to do it myself. Plus the insightful discussions.

16. What to do when it’s over?
Spend way too many hours on blogs like this one, prolonging the discussion and reliving the greatness for as long as possible.

SonshineMusic said...

Gah! I forgot Glee!

And for favorites I didn't put Lost, but I figured that was a given. Also forgot Firefly and a hilariously beyond random Disney cartoon called Dave the Barbarian

Love reading everyone's take on things and how many things we have in common while also having many, many things not in common, but we all get along anyway.

Pamalamb said...

1. USA (Southern California)

2. From the start and I've loved every minute of it! The rewatch we just finished is the first time I've rewatched all the episodes from beginning to end.

3. The premise of the show intrigued me and then when you added in the idea of the island being mysterious that sealed the deal.

4. Hurley being unable to answer Dr. Chang's questions about 1977 and then just giving up and admitting they're from the future. All the scenes with Carmen Reyes, especially when Hurley explained to her what had happened on the island in a few minutes.

5. Juliet's death and Sawyer's expression of grief.

6. I think Locke. It was the episode "walkabout" that really hooked me with lost and ever since I have really enjoyed watching Locke's story unfold.
I also loved the Eko character and was so sorry to see that storyline end.

7. N and P. I liked the idea of bringing up background characters, but the way they did it just didn't work.

8. The others. I've enjoyed watching their story unfold, and I'm looking forward to getting some answers about them.

9. Kate's love life!

10. Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, The Office, Fringe, V, Law and Order, Law and Order SVU, Survivor, and Desperate Housewives (I know, I know - quilty pleasure).

11. Twilight Zone, Star Trek TNG, ER, X Files, Seinfeld, Cheers, Friends, Malcolm In The Middle, and Lost of course.

12. Why the Losties have been brought to the island and what is special about them - What is their destiny!

13. No, but I can't wait to find out.

14. I don't know; maybe Jack's eye, but I hope it's something more interesting.

15. This blog is the best - so many intelligent, funny, nice people. What's not to like!

16. I've enjoyed the rewatch so much, I think I'll do it again - hopefully with all of you. I would also like to read all the books referenced on Lost.

V. said...

1. What country are you from?
USA (Texas)

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?
I started watching live at the end of the first season and caught up online.

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?
I stumbled across Lost (Exodus, part 1) randomly, thought it seemed interesting and tuned in the following week to see if the raft made it off the island. By the time the Others grabbed Walt I was hooked!

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?
Dr. Chang quizzing Hurley about current events.

5. What was the saddest moment for you?
Sawyer’s parents’ murder/suicide

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?
I don’t have a strong favorite, but if I *had* to choose- Sayid. The resident torturer/assassin is one of the most ethical characters, ha! He just seems good. Maybe it’s because each act is purposeful and he’s honest, he doesn’t try to conceal or spin his actions (like Ben). He’s also a complete softy- falling in love with any woman he spends time with, fixing Rousseau’s music box, covering Naomi’s body and transporting her remains for burial and rescuing Hurley. He’s always down to help the group, but if you mess with him he’ll snap your neck with his feet!

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
Storylines that fizzle out without a conclusion (vivid dreams, Mr. Eko’s church, Libby in the asylum, and Walt’s “specialness”)

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?
The island’s history- why do they come, fight, destroy, corrupt, and it always ends the same?

9. What is your least favourite storyline?
Kate/ Wayne/ Diane

10. What other shows do you watch right now?
Bones, Psych, Burn Notice, and the Mentalist

11. What are your all-time favourite shows?
LOST, Bones, Law and Order, Open All Hours, Mash, B&W Perry Mason

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?
What/Who is “Locke?”

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?
I don’t know the specifics, but I think it will be bittersweet- not everyone will get a happy ending.

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?
An eye.

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?
Intelligent creativity- brainstorming theories, researching multiple fields (physics, philosophy, literature), and endlessly analyzing every detail

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?
Cry. Then rewatch the series to see how knowing the ending changes my interpretation of events.

So this is Comment #108. Why does that number ring a bell?
Anyhow, I was reading a past post of mine* and came across what just might be Ben's funniest, most ridiculously ballsy dialogue yet: "John Locke is dead. I think he was murdered."
You're welcome, everybody, unless you were drinking morning coffee.
*not out of vanity, of course, just to jog my memory on some theories that had arisen and why my own input was the most insightful

Churchill, Manitoba, CANADA

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?
Have been watching right from the beginning.

The writing / the nuanced story telling.

Whenever Sawyer slams someone.

5. What was the saddest moment for you?
Juliet's death and Sawyer's reaction to her falling.

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?
Sawyer. He is cynical, selfish, insulting yet heroic, selfless and compassionate. He is by far the most interesting character. Also Locke is pretty cool. Also Sayid. I like Juliette too. Also...

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
Never really liked Michael or Ana Lucia story lines.

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?
I liked the time travel story line.

ANything involving Kate.

Will Ben be redeemed? Will Sawyer get back with Juliette somehow? Will they re-incorporate Bernard and Rose somehow? Will Boone be brought back? Charlie?

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?
Loops back to the 1800s on the beach with Jacob and man in black on the beach, but this time it is Jack as Jacob and Locke as the man in black. Richard is on the Black Rock.

Close up of Locke's eye.

1. What country are you from?
Canada

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?
I've been watching from day one and have never lost faith that it would all come together.

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?
The mythologies and the characters...I hear so much about people who love on or the other, but I personally have become obsessed with all of it!

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?
Anytime Sawyer spews another nickname for anyone.

5. What was the saddest moment for you? Charlie's death....easily.

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why? It's probably Desmond if I had to choose....he's storyline has been amazing. But the truth is that the show wouldn't be what it is without all of them...so I love them all as if they were my own!

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
Nikki and Paolo is the obvious choice here...but I've long since forgotten about them. I think not trying up Walt's mysteries was a mistake...but who knows, they may surprise us yet.

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow? The bigger picture....what any of it means in the grand scheme of things.

9. What is your least favourite storyline? Probably the love triangle/quadrangle - it's been a bit much.

10. What other shows do you watch right now? Fringe, Grey's, House, 24, NCIS: Los Angeles (Chris O'Donnel is hot)

11. What are your all-time favourite shows?
Lost, Friends, ER

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end? None that I could articulate very well...I leave the theorizing to the pros.

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be? Not a sweet clue at this point....everyone seems to think it will be of Jack's eye opening or closing. That might be a bit obvious....but we'll see soon enough!

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community? That I'm not alone in this!!!

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?
Cry like a baby...but hopefullywith joy that the ride was worth it.

1. What country are you from?

Wales, UK

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?

Since it aired on Channel 4 in the UK.

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?

Firstly, the superb UK advertising campaign - made it an instant "must see", then after viewing the pilot, it was the expertly crafted episodes that transcended tv, it felt like a movie - superbly written characters - anyone identified with at least one of them - an amazing backdrop and a mystery that hooked you at once.

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?

Been a fair few, but I loved the Dharma van moments with Hurley, Sawyer and Jin and the Dharma beer; just highlighted at that moment how much I loved those characters after a hard slog of an opening to Season 3 (don't know who the haters are but I loved Season 3).

5. What was the saddest moment for you?

Has to be Sun visiting Jin's "grave" in Season 4 - balled my eyes out (normally do when it involves those two!).

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?

Locke (narrowly over Ben - "Walkabout" blew my mind and had me hooked on Locke ever since - his near suicide was one of the most superbly crafted scenes in Lost - Locke is the best character and Terry O Quinn should be proud of what he has crafted for him. (But all of the cast are superb - it's hard to choose).

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?

To be honest, I really don't have anything here - as with any show, there are slow burn moments - I have loved every moment of this show.

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?

Hmmm, has to be Locke's backstory.

9. What is your least favourite storyline?

A couple of Jack's flashbacks early on became a little tedious.

10. What other shows do you watch right now?

Caprica starts on Sky One tonight, back into 24, BBC's Survivors is awesome, discovered Jericho on DVD - love it.

11. What are your all-time favourite shows?

I miss Sex And The City, but nothing will ever top Lost - it has been the best TV experience ever.

12. What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?

Nothing - I am just going to go with it - wishing for it to be different will ruin the experience - it is Darlton's story - let them tell it their way.

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?

Nope, and like it that way - want my mouth to drop.

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?

Like others have said, maybe an eye and pull back to reveal someone in a twist kinda way, or one final birds eye image of the island.

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?

The community is what I love about the community. Don't worry peeps, even after the show ends, it will live on through the fans and at least we get to see it end on its on terms. I for one DO NOT want to see a spin off - that would be awful.

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?

Watch it AGAIN all over and listen to my Lost soundtracks - Michael Giacchinno's score is the unsung hero of LOst - his music is superb and should be recognised.

In response to Robert's comment with regard to the score, here are two recent tweets from Carleton:


# When we write a so-so scene do you know who saves our ass? The answer in my next tweet...

# Answer: Michael Giacchino, our genius composer. Winner of two Grammys on Sunday, Oscar nominated this morning for "Up".

T-minus 6 1/2 house (5 1/2 for the recap)

1. New Zealand

2. From the start

3. I watched an interview on E! where all the stars on LOST were talking about the show and how they didn't know what was going on that there was heaps of secrecy regarding the show and scripts. That interested me immensely. Also the fact the Dominic Monaghan was on it(LOTR) helped a lot.

4. Charlie in diapers with driveshaft singing "You all everybody" or "Not every nook and cranny John" in the blooper reel

5. Charlie's death, Sawyer crying about Juliet and Desmond and Penny's phone call (happy and sad)

6. Benjamin Linus because under it all I really do believe he is a good guy that is just looking out for the welfare of all the people he is looking after or cares about.

7. Nikki and Paulo, Walts specialness and letting him go and also killing Mr Eko off.

8. Finding out about Ben, Who Jacob is and where Richard is from.

9. Anything with John Locke, Hurley, Nikki, Paulo, Michael and Walt.

10. The Tudors, Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, Shortland St and next week Flash forward

11. LOST

12. Where is Richard from, how old is he, what is his role? Who is Jacob's enemy, what was his relationship to him? What is the smoke monster? What happens?

13. Death or everyone is back together

14. Jack's eye closing

15. The fact that there are people as enthusiastic about this show as I am and they NEVER get sick of discussing it.

16. Weep, mourn, continue to watch the dvds (one episode in order) every Wednesday night at 8.30 pretending that it is still on and once that fails hope and pray that flash forward is as good as LOST.

Ash said...

1. What country are you from?
Australia :)

2. Have you been watching right from the beginning or did you catch up quickly on DVD? If the latter, what season did you start watching it live?
I started watching about half way through season 1, but quickly caught up :)

3. What is it about Lost that drew you in in the first place?
The format of the show (ie. the character's complex backstories shown through flashbackwards)

4. What do you think is the funniest moment on Lost?
There are way too many... I always loved the time when Hurley beat up Sawyer in "Dave" (I think it was...)

5. What was the saddest moment for you?
Definitely Charlie's death. I bawled like a little baby and still do every time I re-watch that scene!

6. Who is your favourite character (if you have one) and why?
Claire. There was always something significant about her character. I have been a fan of hers from the beginning. They really didn't give her much at the start and I'm glad that they have developed her story much more as the series went on.

7. What, if any, do you think has been the biggest misstep the writers have made on the show?
The time travel aspect. I'm sure they could have avoided the time travel part and still donejustice to the whole story.

8. What is your favourite storyline to follow?
Charlie & Claire, although that is kind of over now... I do like seeing Sawyer & Kate's backstories play out.

9. What is your least favourite storyline?
Not a big fan of the Walt/Michael storyline.

The Office!! ... & Grey's Anatomy.

Lost, of course, The Office, Buffy, Roswell, Friends.

The numbers.

13. Do you have a theory on how Lost is going to end?
I like to be surprised, so I try not to think about it too much...

14. It’s been said the season will end on one single image. What do you think that image will be?
Nikki & Paolo? Haha... I'm not sure about this one... same answer as above!

15. What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?
The fact that you can relate to other people who understand & love the show to the same extent as me!

16. What do you plan to do when it’s all over?
Find something else to obsess over!

crazyinlost said...

1. USA

2. Started watching fall '09 when went into syndication. I was caught up for s5, but had to watch them online since our ABC server was being poopy.

3. The plethora of emotions it brings to me; humor, sadness, intrigue, awe, confusion. Plus every week they may answer a question, but there's always a new question to ponder (and ponder, and ponder).

4. The scenes where Jack is trying to diagnose Sawyer's headaches, with the questioning is SO funny. Plus when he diagnoses him and the glasses he ends up with! I can watch that over and over! (Almost as fun as Data's 'Ode to Spot').

5. When Charle died.

6. Desmond, because I love his accent (and pecs! and tan!) and love his story arcs, with the Mrs. Hawkings, telling him his pushing the button was the only important thing he did, and all the trials and tribulations he went thru with Penny, but got her in the end!

7. The fact that we still don't know why the Other's are on the island, what they are doing, and why were THEY on the Hydra station island? The animals aren't there anymore? Why would Ben have an office there? Wierd!

8. Time Travel! And now with the alternate time line! Whoo hoo! Bring it on, baby!

9. Not sure

10. Psyche just started up again, and House too. Waiting for Eureka to start up again. I'm trying out Fringe, and so far like it, but I'm having problems with the on-line versions. The words are out of sync with the action on half the eps, and I feel like I'm watching a badly dubbed Japanise film! haha

11. I have a huge list on one of the last Rewatch posts.

12. Why is everyone connected?

13. Not a clue!

14. Jack's eye again? Full circle?

15. They get it. No one else does!

16. I have no plans!

1)
I'm from the UAE (United Arab Emirates) w000t w000t lol

2)
and I've caught up with lost mid-first-season. I heard a lot of buzz about it online so I d/led the episodes and I have ever since been a lostie.

3)
What drew me in, was its mysteriousness. It gets into my head like no other show. It makes my head hurts and I love it for that. Though, ive gotten tired -sometimes- of rationalizing it.

4)
Funniest moment.. hmm nothing pops into mind.

5)
Saddest moment would be james and juliet hooking up and actually being in a relationship which killed every hope of Skate ever happening ever again. (Though, fingers crossed for s6. I saw the look on their faces in the temple, it was for a split second though it counts in my book. And oh God, speaking of s6, how awful was it that kate ran to Jack first, as if it was even sth to contemplate over.) anyhoows.

6)
My fav, would be Kate and James.

10)
I watch Fringe, Dexter, Bones, White Collar, Cougar town, House, The Mentalist..

11)
My all time fav shows are LOST, Bones, Buffy, Angel, FRIENDS, House.

12)
What is the biggest question you want answered on Lost in season 6?
What the eff is going ON?! Like seriously!!

13)
I have ideas here and there but nothing conclusive, lucid.

14)
It’s been said the season will end on one single image.
I'd have to say it be either of the island, or close up shot of someone's eye.

15)
What’s your favourite thing about the Lost fan community?
So Active and passionate. They reciprocate my feelings and ideas of my obsession with Lost. And add to mine. Widen my horizon on the theories/ ideas of Lost.

16) I plan on re-watching it. After, whining and bitching that it's over and it came to an end. Bittersweet. =(


I just browsed your blog. Awesome, dude! I found your article on DocArzt's <3. Very good points, if I may say.
