From TV Guide online:

What happens when the countdown for the hatch computer ends? Why did Flight 815 crash? And has salvation finally arrived? The producers are promising answers in tonight's two-hour season finale, and you can hold them to it.What happens when the countdown for the hatch computer ends? Why did Flight 815 crash? And has salvation finally arrived? The producers are promising answers in tonight's two-hour season finale, and you can hold them to it. Don't expect anyone's salvation (unless Ana Lucia spent only three weeks in purgatory, and that's a long shot), but do expect hatch answers in flashback sequences featuring its previous occupant, Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick). As for Walt's rescue mission (and "trap"), expect fireworks. Certainly the sailboat that popped up offshore last week won't carry anybody to life happily ever after. ..expect hatch answers in flashback sequences featuring its previous occupant, Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick).

And BTW, the show will soon be scouting for two new females to replenish the two they just executed.

The Beginning Of The End Of Repeats?

As a fan of the TV show "Lost", I've heard fellow viewers vent their frustration all season about repeat episodes. Television has always followed a sweeps formula designed to get the biggest bang for the buck in the months of November, February and May. Lately, however, it's gotten ridiculous. Basically, with the exception of a season's first month or so, the only time it seems that there are new episodes is during or near the three sweeps months. In December, much of January, March and April, the networks seem to use these months as dumping grounds for repeat episodes - many of which are shown out of sequence.

What's made it worse is that the number of episodes per season for a given show has dropped from 26 to - at most - 22 (the show "24" is the obvious exception). So in the last five to ten years, networks have been stretching 22 new episodes over 35 weeks or more - from September through May - while airing the bulk of new episodes in the sweeps months. more...

Get "Lost" Tonight

Questions Need To Be Answered!

Question Mark.png

What happened to Michael when he went to look for "the others"?

What is that facility called "the Pearl" that was marked by the big question mark?

What would happen if Locke didn't input the numbers into the computer at the hatch?

Do the show's creators have ANY idea where they are going with this?

Hopefully we'll get answers to at least the first three on tonight's episode titled "Three Minutes"!

Get "Lost" Tonight

Finally! Season two is starting to get interesting - just as its winding down. It's not like I was ready to give up this show, but man up until now it's been fairly underwhelming. While we've learned a little more about the "others" and the "hatch", the plot was getting - IMO - a little stagnant.

Well, last week's show put an end to that. And J.J. Abram's promise to make the last few episodes "killer" is coming to fruition.

SPOILERS BELOW!!!

You're Fired

ABC cans "Commander-In-Chief".

The ratings were so bad they're not even going to show the final three episodes during May sweeps. Even in an April full of "ER" repeats, it went off the radar. In it's Thursday 10pm spot, ABC will air its newsmagazine "Primetime". The remaining new episodes will be played sometime during the summer, when no one is watching TV anyway.

Contrary to the Hollywood hand-wringing, I firmly believe America is ready for a female President. What they won't accept, however, is a Liberal bleeding-heart touchy-feely female President. The Left Coast will be mourning this one. No more President Allen. No more President Bartlet. Just two more years of Chimpy McBushitler. Even in the world of make-believe, they can't win. Heh.
