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.
