OH MAN! For this, I think you can have Butter break into your house and set the DVR.

Or, put the kids to bed early and tell the wifey that you'll talk to her in 2 hours.

Yeah...we're all in a hotel room together and we're watching in Central time.  So LOST starts at 8 p.m. here.  I doubt I can get the kids to sleep by 8.

There is always the website though.

I just gotta' say that they better deliver this season...they got some 'splaining to do.

Doesn't Lost start at 8:00 p.m. Eastern tonight? So it would start a 7:00 p.m. in Chi-town.

I believe the 8 p.m. Easter (7 p.m. Chi Town) show is a clips show.  The premier is from 9-11.  I could be wrong though.

I love the Boston Globe's review of the first two hours:

"Truly, the "Lost" premiere is riveting, which, for a two-hour episode in the later stages of a series run, is an impressive accomplishment. … Please, please, please don't let "moving the island" become the new three-word phrase for what happens when a show loses its sense."

I'll be watching the ocean for Fonzie on waterskis being pulled by Penelope's boat.

Title: Re: Lost 2009
Post by: whigsgeek on January 22, 2009, 08:31:07 AM
While I wasn't disappointed, I did find it highly implausible that ...

(1) Hurley's first instinct would be to take Sayid to his parents' house and not immediately to Jack and (2) that Hurley could be all over the news, but his father had no clue that he was wanted until the cops showed up (inexplicably) 12 HOURS after Hurley's escape.
Title: Re: Lost 2009
Post by: Doug on January 22, 2009, 09:35:24 AM
We did end up watching it last night.  We brought a portable DVD player, so we set the kids up with a little movie theatre of their own...basically a fort made out of towels, chairs and pillows.  So they watched the Spongebob movie and we got to see Lost.  Although, they went to bed before it was over and Sawyer banging on the door to the hatch freaked my oldest son out.

I thought it was a pretty good show.  One thing I noticed is that the flashbacks used to make sense, in that they were flashbacks.  Now, they use the same convention to introduce the flashes, but they're all over the freakin' place.  Similar to how the island is, I guess.  As the island has detached from time, so has the narrative.  I find this method of storytelling to be confusing and exhillarating at the same time.

"I love shih-tzus."
"Looks like you heart them."

Loved that line.  I also enjoyed Damon Lindeloff and Carlton Cuse doing the commentary for the clips show.  The podcast comes to TV.  At least Carlton was wearing pants.

Fixed that for me.

Loved Hurley's response to Sayid after he confessed to working for Ben: "Wait. He's on our side now?"
Loved Sawyer pretending to care about having a shirt. Buddy, we know you prefer to be shirtless. Mrowr.
Weird seeing Jack with absolutely NO facial hair after he shaved off the crappy beard.
LOVED seeing Dr. Chang open the episode. For a second, I thought we were going to get to see more about his life and I got REALLY excited.
Desmond = Special = kinda cool, kind of a cop out - maybe?
How long till we see creepy Claire again?

There is a lot of speculation on Miles being Candle's baby.

I liked when "John Edwards" Miles went to get the boar, knowing that it just died 3 hours ago.

Anyway, the first hour was definitely better than the second, and next week's episode "Jughead" is supposed to be more like episode one.

"Funny" Hurley episodes are starting to wane on me.

Think about it though, in the past we had flashbacks (and then flash forwards) that centered around characters, these are flashbacks about the island.

Random drunken Lost thoughts...

Yay Lost is on!!!

Aww...Penny...you so cute...even when you pushing out a puppy.

Faraday is the worst boyfriend ever...he fucks you with some space time continuum shit and leaves you in a hospital bed.

What is up with these creepy assed HR Block commercials,  Those guys are dead for a reason.

Oooh..the Others speak Latin.  Yet another useless detail to add to the wiki.

OK...whaitaminute...Desmond's kid was born and now he's 3..stop messin' with timelines for mundane stuff.

I sure wish they'd give the oriental Ghost Whispere some more story time...I like that guy.

Cool...radiation burns.

That wily Alpert and his wet, mascaraed eyes.  If I was a girl, I'd be a lustin'.

Hey...let's bury the  bomb...that always works.

That blonde chick is so damned hot.  Is she the invalid in the bed?

Ah...I knew Widmore would turn up on the island.

Sawyer is pretty damned useless in this episode.

What the hell...that's how they end it.  That sucks.

Life on Mars looks cool...I think I'll watch it.

Ellie, the chick with the gun is probably Farraday's mom,  ELOISE Hawkins.  Guess Mrs Hawkins' first name was revealed in the repeat episode with the pop up quips.  Couldn't see on our screens because of the weather/closing info they had awt the bottom of the sscreen, but of course those in warmer climates could. 

Thought it was a good episode.  Gave us some traction that last week's set was missing for the on island action.

It was so sweet that Pen & Desmond named their son Charlie.  Awwwww.

They need to get the other 6 back to the island and quick. I'm not losing interest yet, but I'm getting there. Juliet and Sawyer have no spark, no chemistry, imho. Sawyer isn't as much fun -- he has no twinkle in his eye -- without Kate, Jack, and Hurley.

Also, I was totally right about Jin! So happy to see him!
Title: Re: Lost 2009
Post by: Kwyjibo on February 05, 2009, 09:03:34 AM
I don't find the Oceanic 6 parts boring, nor the people on the island... I wish they'd get this thing with Desmond on the road.  When Desmond was getting the bloody noses he was near death within a short period of time, I don't get how we're supposed to believe that the people on the island are going this long.
Title: Re: Lost 2009
Post by: Doug on February 05, 2009, 09:17:52 AM
I thought it was a pretty good episode.  I had a feeling it was Ben messing with Kate.  Subtly trying to push her back to the island.  e's always such a great manipulator.  So the nosebleeds are analogous to your length of exposure to the island?  So the two that got them early have been there before.  There were rumors that the Ghost Whisperer is Dr. Marvin Candle's son, so maybe it's true.  No idea about the redhead though.

I liked the scene where Sawyer watched Claire give birth and Locke's quip about needing the pain to get to where he is now.  That was an awesome line.  I love that guy.

Miles said something last season about Charlotte either being born on the island or being there when she was a kid.  She acted like she didn't know what he was talking about.

Miles is TOTALLY Candle's kid!

I almost forgot about how cool it was to see Rousseau's party.  I was really worried that they would never show her backstory, he being dead and all.  Now I realize that with this time travel crap, they can tell all kinds of stories about the island without the need  for flashbacks.  Maybe we'll even find out about the origins of the Black Rock.
Title: Re: Lost 2009
Post by: Cockney Rebel on February 05, 2009, 10:24:06 PM
There seemed to be an anomoly when they were out on the raft and the white flash happened...

I thought it was said they only time-tripped with the things they had with them at the start - clothes, guns, knives etc - so how come they didn't just drown.

I would have accepted that too. For us the show is losing its appeal. It's not that we feel challenged by the ludicrously convoluted storyline, moreso that we've just stopped caring WTF happens to everyone. It's starting to become the worst joke ever, stretched out over, what's it been now, 4 years or more? I have this vision of the final episode just being the writers and producers running away with pots of money laughing at us from over their shoulders.
Title: Re: Lost 2009

It's whatever they have with them at the time as well.

Thinking on other boards is that Desmond's real danger was that it was just his mind traveling, which is harder than if your whole self goes.  The brain is seemingly the thing hemoraging (or what I assume to be hemoraging anyway).  I don't know, I can go with it.

Title: Re: Lost 2009
Post by: Juliana on February 06, 2009, 10:22:50 AM
You mean Charlotte?
Well, Daniel did say it has to do with time on the island.  Not sure if it's more of a "when" or a "quantity" thing.  Charlotte is (i think) older than Miles, so she was on the island first.  Miles was next.  He had the second nosebleeds.  Then Juliet (3rd).  Next will be Locke and Sawyer (same time I assume).  Last will be Daniel.
Title: Re: Lost 2009
Post by: Kwyjibo on February 06, 2009, 10:26:31 AM
Oh, yeah.  I remember him saying that.  Good call.

So is that the 72 hour time limit that the lady we think is Daniel's mother gave to Ben?  So everybody dying because of this is the awful thing that happens if the six plus Locke's corpse (and I assume Ben and baby egghead) don't get back?  The pieces... they're coming together.

For us the show is losing its appeal.

The chemistry that made the show engaging (for me) just isn't there when everyone's story lines are separate, imho. I have enough interest for one or two episodes to satisfy my curiosity about what happened to them post-island, but that's about it.

I've been hanging in there because I know the end result is they'll all be back on the island at some point ... but I'm not as interested in Sun's life on her own, or in Hurley's life on his own, or in Sawyer paired up with Juliet, etc. It's like, I'm all about Roger Daltrey when he's part of The Who, but solo or singing with Slash? Meh. The chemistry just isn't the same.

Walt is in NYC with his Grandma as far as we know.
I think he's probably done on the show unless they bring him back for a one ep kind of tie in thing.  Michael has completed his part in all of the island's business though, so I'm guessing Walt has also.


Richard isn't traveling back and forth through time like our Island 6 are.  We keep seeing him in different times, but he's just living, not jumping.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — One of the biggest mysteries of "Lost" — the Smoke Monster — will be unveiled on the popular TV drama, and soon.

Actor Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Jin, said in an interview that the origin and nature of the malevolent dark cloud will be disclosed and viewers will even get a glimpse of its lair. Turns out the monster is as "old as the island" that's been home to the Oceanic jet-crash survivors and their foes.

Kim also cautioned against expectations that his character, Jin, will reunite with his wife, Sun (Yunjin Kim), even though Jin survived a freighter explosion and Sun returns to the island after escaping it.

Those events don't mean "they're particularly in the same place or chronologically in the same time," Kim said.

As for the atomic bomb that showed up in the "Jughead" episode, he said the show's producers rarely give something such prominence unless it counts in the island's mythology.

"That's a huge red herring if it's a red herring," Kim said, suggesting the bomb could help resolve plot points as the series ends in 2010.

Perhaps the time-traveling that's popped up this season might be one of those.

It was a great episode. 

I was *really* surprised they killed Charlotte off.

What the crap happened to the Frenchies in the temple?  I can't believe Robert was going to kill Rousseau!  I thought she was going crazy at first, so I was shocked that he raised his gun and pulled the trigger.
Title: Re: Lost 2009
Post by: whigsgeek on February 12, 2009, 04:33:45 PM
I was totally confused by the way the Frenchies died. My (obviously no-longer-existent) memory had everyone but Rousseau dying from some kind of illness.
Title: Re: Lost 2009
Post by: Juliana on February 12, 2009, 04:37:14 PM
Well, technically I can see Rousseau not wanting to own up to killing them all, but from Robert's behavoir, they did go a little nutzo (mental illness).  Keep in mind we meet Rousseau 16 years after this stuff and she's been by herself hiding from the others and the smoke monster and who knows what other fresh horrors on that island.  She's understandably a little crazy herself by that point.

Really?  Because I saw it coming from a mile away.  I mean, how long can your brain bleed before you finally die from it?  Judging from her recollection of seeing Faraday as a child and him not remembering it, I think we'll still see kid-Charlotte in a future episode.

I was pissed at how they handled the Frenchies.  I was really hoping we'd get the whole back story, but instead, we get teased again.  What are we supposed to think?  The journey into the smoke monster's lair turned them all crazy?  I did find it interesting that they figured out that it was a security system guarding the temple.

I love how they make Locke relive his handicap over and over again.  He's the true badass.

This is why I'm not completely sold on Charlotte being a goner just yet.

If John doesn't 'fix' the time flow situation by leaving and everyone with nosebleeds continues to die off (thus the "after the Oceanic 6 leave the island, everything goes to hell" theory), then Juliette and Sawyer would tend to be in line to die. I think they might actually kill them both, along with Miles, and then when the O6/Locke get back to the island late in the season, everything will right itself in the timeline somehow and then they can focus on Jacob and the remaining mysteries for the last year.

However, if we get 'ghost Charlotte' frollicking around then that theory is DOA.

I'm not even remotely understanding why Sawyer's nose is bleeding and neither Jin's nor Locke's is bleeding. In Jin's case I'm assuming it's because he was off the island for a brief period of time. But why not Locke?
Title: Re: Lost 2009
Post by: Juliana on February 13, 2009, 01:27:03 PM
It's not set in stone that all their noses would start bleeding at the same second or anything.  Jin's probably will start up soon.  Locke is off the island (I guess???), so he's going to be okay (or will he??).  Saywer's *just* started up.

My guess lies with Locke being "special".

If he (the only other one I can think of is Rose, ATM) is the only one who is truly transformed by the island (IE walking), and he has some kind of special connection with it per Richard Alpert, then life/death/nosebleeds may not apply to him.

My question still lies with what kind of connection does John have? Has he been there before and doesn't remember it? Is he Jacob (IE could he have been the ghost in the rocking chair saying "help me" when Ben was present/time travel echo image or something)? Are all of the survivors descendants of those who lived on the island in some capacity and only those with little to no connection are the ones that die (Charlotte being the main exception thus far, but we know little of her back story)? I mean Libby, Mr. Echo, Anna Lucia, Boone, Shannon, Charlie, maybe Claire, etc. all seemed to have no connection to the others or the island in some way. I'd expect other people still around with little ties that we know of will bite the bullet too (Rose, Bernard, Juliette, maybe Sawyer).

My understanding of the explanation given on the show was that the nosebleeds have to do with amount of time spent on the island. So since Sawyer, Locke, and Jin all "arrived" at the same time, it seems their noses should start bleeding simultaneously. Unless the fact that Sawyer's started first is a clue that perhaps he had been on the island before -- though I doubt it. I'm sticking with the theory that Locke is "special" and Jin had been off of the island for a while (where Sawyer has been there all along, thereby making him the first to have a nosebleed).

Unless the fact that Sawyer's started first is a clue that perhaps he had been on the island before -- though I doubt it. I'm sticking with the theory that Locke is "special" and Jin had been off of the island for a while (where Sawyer has been there all along, thereby making him the first to have a nosebleed).

Everybody processes things differently though.  I don't know, I could be wrong.
We've seen enough of Locke's backstory to know if he'd been to the island at some point.

"316" was eh until the last 20 minutes, but I'm curious to know about the other two "passengers" on the flight (lady with Sayid and the guy who told Jack he was sorry about Locke's death). Also, not that they'll explain it, but what was up with Hurley being mysteriously sprung from jail, battered Ben, and arrested Sayid?

Here's hoping "The Life And Death Of Jeremy Bentham" (which I thought was supposed to be this week) is better.

Fixed this for me.

I think their chemistry is undeniable. Plus, he seems to be so happy and content with her. SAWYER!??!!? Happy and content instead of confused and tortured!?!?! It makes the man stay clean shaven.

In my opinion, it was only in the last episode the writers let Sawyer do anything at all. Before that, the character seemed to have lost everything that made him Sawyer.

In my opinion, he took an uncharacteristic back seat to Locke and to Faraday. He might have stepped up once those two weren't around, but it took many episodes to get there. I don't think he's been acting like he always has at all, at least not until this week.

Not sure, but bringing up Mikhail reminded me ... You *know* he has to show up again at some point. Hasn't been seen since Charlie died, but nobody just disappears like that on this show without coming back.

I was also a bit frustrated with the episode, c-lando. Wasn't surprised that Sun and the pilot are in a different time than everyone else -- had read an interview with the actor who plays Jin, and he hinted it would happen -- but don't understand *how* since they were all on the same plane. How can some go to one time period and everyone else to another?
Title: Re: Lost 2009
Post by: Juliana on March 20, 2009, 11:07:24 AM
Somebody said something at one point about being in the "right" place on the plane?  I don't know how, but I'm sure it'll be explained. 

The Flame station is where we met Mikael/Patchy.  It's the place Locke blows up/blew up when he told the computer that there were hostiles there breaching the place.

I liked the episode myself.  Good to see more of the "in charge" Sawyer, especially with Jack in play.  I loved how he was chilling out reading a book and quoting Churchill to Jack.  Sawyer putting Jack down as a "Workman" was also seriously awesome.  I guess he put Hurley as a chef.  Didn't see what he said Kate would be. 

I also liked how so far Sawyer is showing restraint with Kate.  Don't know if you guys noticed, but he called her Kate when he hugged her, instead of Freckles.  He called Hurley and Jack by nicknames (Kong and Doc respectively).

So, at this point with little Ben, is this after he's met up with Aplert?  Does he know that Sayid isn't a hostile?  Does he think that he *IS* a hostile and he'll try to help him?

If they do go with the "right place on the plane" reason, I'll definitely need help understanding. The pilot (can never remember the character's name, so I'll just go with Lawnmower Man) was in the front sitting on the left and (if I remember correctly) Sun was in the back sitting on the right.  

Good to see more of the "in charge" Sawyer, especially with Jack in play. [...] Sawyer putting Jack down as a "Workman" was also seriously awesome.

Yeah, loved that, too.

How did Locke know where the temple was?  They've never showed him going there or even knowing about it.

I definitely think it was some kind of code talk.

I don't think it's far-fetched at all for Locke just to KNOW where something is at this point. I really do think the Island talks to him.

Alex creeped me the fuck out.

How do you turn the other way from whispers? They seem to be pretty surrounding when they are heard. But, that could just be my sound system. :)

Do we think that Ben was genuinely surprised to see the other Losties in that 1970s photo? Does he really not know that Sayid shot him and that Jack, Sawyer, Kate and crew were there on the island when he was a kid?

I don't know, Richard Alpert said that when he took him into the temple that he wouldn't remember.  Maybe he forgot about them, or maybe they're not there when he gets back from the Temple.

There is a lot of speculation on Miles being Candle's baby.

And everybody was right
Holy crap.

Thought this was a good episode.  If nothing else, the name of the episode "Some like it Hoth" would have given it a pass.

So much going on.
Miles & Hurley prove again what a good onscreen duo they make. 
"How do you spell Bounty Hunter?"

Who is this new faction they've introduced?  Are they from Ann Arbor?  Are they  some faction of Pre-Ben Others who left?  Are they part of Ben's group of Others?

Stupid Kate.  Ugh.  Stupid stupid Kate. 

I think that Locke will heed Alex's advice, at least to some degree.  Smoky/The Island using her was probably the only way to get through to him, so good move on Smoky's part.

In the Orchid video, Candle/whatever his real name is flipped when the two rabbits (same rabbit from different times) came into close contact with each other.

Is adult Miles and baby Miles going to cause "the Incident?"  The one that made them have to enter the numbers?

Even when Sawyer was an asshole you still respected him, and now that he's not you respect him all the more.  They've written that character well, and Jack to I guess.  I guess Jack just turns out to be a spineless dickweed.

What?  Are you saying that when those giant mutant spiders got out of the lab in that one movie and attacked that school bus that you thought it looked lame?  What?????????

Yeah, I kind of hated that it wasn't totally Alpert-centric, but seeing the listings elsewhere, I just had to post them.

On the positive note, Rose and Bernard are back for the season finale. YAY! (at least according to ABC's show description).

What lies in the shadow of the statue?  Been getting played like a bitch, that's what.

Okay, so who are Jacob and this other dude?  How does Alpert fit in?  I spent this whole season thinking that John was a badass and it turns out it's not even him.  Ben was right to be scared...

Juliette falling down the well was beyond sad.

Jack continues to suck.

Well played Darlton.

My guess is maybe Richard was on the ship that the two of them saw from the beach.

I kept thinking that Jacob was Jack's dad in his younger years when he was visiting everyone as kids. But, when he showed up to see Sayid, I thought, "WHAT THE!?!?! Jacob isn't Jacob!" Mind blown.

I totally was not ready for THAT body to roll out of the case though. I really thought Locke was being such a badass but I thought he'd call Ben off when he saw that Jacob wasn't Jacob. But, he did find the Jacob he was looking for.

"They're coming!" - that means it has to work, right? RIGHT!?!?!? Sons of bitches for stopping the season/episode right there. BOOOOOOOOOOOOO. And then reminding us that we have to wait till 2010. UGH.

I'm pregnant so I have an excuse, but GD that scene with Juliet and Sawyer when she fell down the well made me cry.   JEEZ that was heartwrenching.  Then poor Juliet down at the bottom trying to give Sawyer the reset because she loved him. 

It was a great episode. 

I was so happy that Sun found Charlie's ring.  I hope she keeps it and gives it to Claire.  Assuming ....shit, well, who knows what will happen next season.

I was wondering if Claire is dead since Jacob's buddy was inhabiting Jack's dad's body. Like maybe someone else was using Claire's body as well. Who the crap knows!

Loved seeing the DS ring again. Made me totally happy. Especially since it led to seeing Sun and Jin's wedding and having Jin say the only funny line of the night, "I don't know. But is Korean is excellent." Hahahahaaha.

Sawyer had me boo-hooing like a little baby, too.

I'll have to watch those episodes again because they were much more mind bending than I thought.

* Juliet and the well made the episode for me. I hope, like Sayid, that they both aren't dead if the 'reset' works.
* Dead Locke / not dead Locke threw me for a loop... that opening scene with Jacob/Jacob watching the Black Rock is worth repeated scrutiny.
* In all the little flashbacks that occurred, was Juliet's the only one where Jacob didn't show up in?
* Rose, Bernard and Vincent! Yay!
* "What lies in the shadow of the statue?" For those who don't speak Latin, this translates as "He who will protect us" or "He who will save us all."
* The tapestry being weaved by Jacob contains two ancient Greek sayings from the book The Odyssey. The first is: "May the gods grant thee all that thy heart desires." The second is: "May the gods give you happiness."

I think them called him Jacob/Jacob because, like me, he thinks that Jacob's buddy was probably the one inhabiting the body of Jack's dead father and going by the name Jacob in that little cabin. Right?

Well, I think Jacob and Christian Shepard were both in the cabin.  I could be wrong.  They confirmed on the podcast that the man in the chair when Locke first heard what he and Ben thought was Jacob was NOT Christian Shepard.

Hm. I knew I should have been listening to the podcasts. But, just going by what I see on the screen, I thought that the general consensus up until last night was that Christian Shepard was Jacob.

I think this show has gone from cool Jungle sci-fi to Clash of the Titans.  The show was excellent as always, but I think what we are seeing being played out is a big chess game between dying gods.  I think Jacob and his buddy who wants to kill him on the beach are enemy dietys.  Was the one who wants to kill Jacob named?  I think he is the smoke monster and able to take on the form of anything he wants to.  He seems like a Loki style manipulator.  They're both playing a all the characters like pawns.  I think when Jacob said they're coming, it meant that all the people in the past are going to catch up with the rest of the 30 years later crew.  I don't know what this means to Jacob.  I'm hoping it means we'll see a real Locke resurection as he gets "reset".  I dunno'.  But I gotta' say, what a cool way to end the season.

Anyone hazard a guess as to what Jacob meant when he said to Locke: "I see you've found your loophole."?? Does that mean that the Locke-impersonator had to get someone else to kill Jacob, that it couldn't be done by the impersonator himself?
Title: Re: Lost 2009
Post by: Kwyjibo on May 15, 2009, 09:50:38 AM
The loophole was mentioned at the begining when Jacob and his friend were on the beach watching the Black Rock sail in.  I assume it meant that the two could not kill each other, only through a proxy.

Smoke Monster From 'Lost' Given Own Primetime Spin-Off Series

BURBANK, CA—Executives at ABC announced Monday that the network will premier a new Lost spin-off series this fall based around that show's popular smoke monster character.

The new series, a half-hour family-oriented comedy called Where There's Smoke, is touted by ABC as the new anchor of its Thursday-night lineup.

"Somewhere between the smoke monster's first appearance on Lost— when it was depicted as a strange unseen force uprooting trees—and that episode in season three where it grabbed Mr. Eko and smashed him against the ground until he was dead, this character became the breakout star of the show," said Stephen McPherson, president of ABC Entertainment. "And that's exactly why we're so excited about Where There's Smoke. We get to see the monster's light comedic side in a show about life, love, and good friends having good times."

"Because after all, Where There's Smoke, there's laughter," McPherson added.

ABC sources reported that the series will transplant the evil black cloud from the island of Lost to the suburbs of Chicago, where it works as a sports radio host, surrounded by "a whole new group of crazy characters." Actress Lea Thompson has signed on to play the monster's long-suffering wife, who must put up with her husband's screwball antics while raising the couple's two rambunctious children, Tanner and Smoky, Jr.

Veteran TV producer Chuck Lorre, of Dharma & Greg and The Big Bang Theory fame, will helm the show, which he said will focus mainly on the deadly creature's adjustments to suburbia and fatherhood, and its comically contentious relationship with its boss, a fussy radio station manager played by Richard Kind.

"The whole concept began with us asking, 'So what happens to the monster after it kills somebody and disappears down that ancient temple vent? What kind of life might it have?'" Lorre said. "And what we realized is that audiences really relate to this character and would like to see it in everyday situations, shooting the breeze with buddies at a local watering hole or murdering its son's soccer coach and depositing his lifeless body in a tree."

"And of course, you'll be hearing lots of its classic catchphrase, 'Brrrrr, chk-chk-chk-chk, muuuuuuuuuuuuaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrhhh,'" Lorre added.

Lost producer Jack Bender has confirmed that the smoke monster will no longer be part of his show's regular cast. However, ABC has promised that Where There's Smoke will feature a number of guest appearances from Lost regulars. Sources said the pilot episode will feature an appearance by actor Michael Emerson as a slobby houseguest named Benjamin Linus who overstays his welcome, much to the chagrin of the smoke monster's wife.

Though the project has been in development for almost a year, negotiations reached a standstill last winter when representatives for the mysterious, billowing actor expressed concern that their client would risk being typecast as "just a smoke monster" if the role were carried into a new series.

"We're always sensitive to these kinds of things, but we actually think this new vehicle will make people realize [the monster] is a sophisticated actor with a great deal of range," said McPherson, who agreed to pay the show's star $2 million per episode after scenes between the smoke monster and a nosy, ethnic next-door neighbor tested well with audiences. "People love the smoke monster, and people love to laugh. This series is a can't-miss."

Added McPherson, "And I'm not just blowing smoke here."
