Lost vs. The WGA [Update]

In a strike update report, we’re told that we only have 6 more episodes of Lost this season, but that 6 more could possibly be recorded before the end of the season. That’s a total of 14 of the promised 16 episodes. Considering Lost is fast becoming the best thing on TV ever, I find this quite disturbing. I, for one, would have loved a season cliffhanger mindfuck like that of season 3.

Update: The Lostpedia blog has an update. The good news is that we’ll get the same amount of episodes (48) for season 4, 5 and 6. The bad news is that they’ll be scrambled, so that season 4 will only be a total of 13 of the 16 episodes we were promised. Now let’s just hope they can muster up some good writing for those episodes.

  1. Dude, I’m SO there with you. Once Lost goes off the air, TV can only go one way; down! And with the rather inadequate last season of Battlestar and Heroes (though that was shaping up near the end), it’s looking grim 😐

    It does indeed. I’m so hoping that the writers can scramble and weave gold over the next few weeks, so we can get a full 16 episode season this time. I fear that ratings might drop if the whole thing becomes too irregular — its’ difficult enough having to wait 6 months for a TV show to start again.

    I have the original english series on DVD. I love it. (The american version is on the to-watch list, I’m told it’s even better).

    This american version is ok, but not a patch on the english version.. its a totally different type of humour.

    oh an lost was very good for the first two series and now it is unwatchable.

    Noooh, no, you just haven’t given it a proper chance. Enjoy the mindfucks.

    i beg to differ, i endured the 3rd series and it was frankly painful to watch the writers (does lost has writers any more? ) try and confuse everyone so much that we might forgot the huge holes in the plot.

    this video sums it up better than i can:


  8. You’re mad as a hatter. The third season turned out to be one of the BEST seasons so far! I get shivers just thinking about it.
