The First Season 5 trailer for LOST has hit Youtube, and it had me grinning ear-to-ear.  If you’re following the show, and haven’t finished Season 4, you may not want to watch this, but for everyone else who is following the tale of Oceanic Flight 615, this is a welcome balm to start the countdown to 2009.

I’ve had this sitting in my Google Notebook for a couple weeks. This video, courtesy of YouTube user lostuncut takes the opening theme music and style of Battlestar Galactica and plugs in video and credits for Lost.

Probably only amusing for fans of both shows, but funny for those of us in that category.

And, for those who are still trying to figure out how all the flash-forwards on Lost fit together, here’s a video that puts them in chronological order:

Lost Theories and Recaps

While I’m sitting here waiting for the latest installment of what’s turning out to be a really, really good season of Lost, I figured I’d pass on a couple of links to two of the best (and not mutually exclusive) theories as to what’s really going on in the series.  And, following them, is a link to a recap site which uses screencaps from the episode being summarized, and combines them with funny captions to tell the story.

Lost Returns

Lost returns to television this week, shifting days from Wednesday to Thursday. For those who haven’t been following the show, last season’s two-hour finale will be re-shown on Wednesday night, in “pop-up video” style, with factoids and things displayed on the lower third of the screen.

The show then takes its new timeslot on Thursday at 8 p.m., following a one-hour “catch up” show designed to bring new viewers up to speed. If you don’t want the Reader’s Digest version, ABC is streaming all three seasons of Lost to-date, in High Def, on their web site, at http://dynamic.abc.go.com/streaming/landing.

Lost is somewhat unique among current tv series, in that while it still has a rabid following, it has announced exactly how many episodes it has left in the story they intend to tell; there will be 46 episodes over 3 seasons before the series come to an end. But the beginning of the end starts this week. (Or, more appropriately, the beginning of the end is rebroadcast this week, with the repeat of the game-changing Season 3 finale.)

TV Catchup

A couple of series that have some pretty involved history have either returned or are returning shortly, and viewers now have a chance to catch up with them via the internet, without investing a whole lot of time.

HBO’s acclaimed The Wire came back for its final season last week (it was always intended as a 5 season story). Folks who haven’t followed the first four seasons have access to a mega-summary atSpike TV. I’m not a viewer, but if the writer’s strike goes on much longer, I might be renting the DVDs.

Lost returns at the end of the month, but those needing a refresher on the show’s intricate mythology can get up to speed in just over 8 minutes, with Lost in 8:15. (To show how entrenched the mythology can become, the airplane that crashed in the pilot was Oceanic Flight 815.

Lost further solidifies its role as king of viral web marketing with Find 815, an “alternate reality game” in which an Oceanic Airlines IT tech tries to find out the truth about the crash and why the airline has stopped investigating. To that end, Oceanic Airlines is apparently back in business, following their previously-announced shutdown following the crash of 815. All this for a tv show. Who’da thunk it?
