Lost: Mobisodes
Are you dying for Lost to start up in 2008? Worried how the writer's strike will affect it? Wondering if Jack ever had a nice moment with his dad?

Worry no further: The little Lost mobisodes have begun as of today. From now until the show begins in February 2008, the ABC website will be featuring little "missing pieces" of previous episodes so we can see a little bit more of each character. Of course, this could end up being about as gripping as those previews were last year for the show to begin in February 2007, but so far the first one was actually pretty compelling, considering it's only 2 minutes and 40 seconds. And -- shockingly -- they're allowing people who don't live in the U.S. to actually watch them.

Go here to see the episode, and there will be a new one every week.

Those little mobisodes that the writers don't get paid for because they're on the internet instead of the TV?

No kidding... I was actually going to post exactly that, but instead my thought process moved to an entire entry on the topic, hence the post above. :)

I have now seen th first two mobisodes--the jack-dad-watch one and the frogurt-hurly-libby one. Both of them seem extremely useless and the actors really seem less than enthusiastic to be in them. Plus, the boring "two-fer, coverage, coverage," approach makes it painful to watch, especially for a show that tends to be visually interesting like LOST.

I will, of course, keep watching them--I am LOST-ahololic But, I hope they either get better or thy build toward a unified story.
