LOST Revised?


For those of you who complained incessantly about the LOST series finale, someone with far more creativity than you actually took the time and is working on revamping the entire final season of LOST sans the Alternate Reality.

Take a look at LOST Revised. I understand this fanboy will be recreating each episode this season. In his/her own words:

A lot of people invested a lot of time and energy in following Lost over the years. I was one of those people. A lot of people were satisfied with the way the series ended. I was not one of those people.

At first, the introduction of the “sideways” world in Season 6 was extremely intriguing. It presented an alternate reality, presumably the result of the atomic-bomb blast at the end of Season 5, in which the characters had seemingly never crashed on the island.

It opened up a lot of possibilities as to where the show was going and where it would end up, and given the history of Lost, we were led to expect that the ultimate connection and reveal would be as original, creative, and satisfying as the rest of the series.

As it turned out, it was none of those things. The entire conceit of the sideways world was to bring all of our heroes together again in the afterlife – one of the most cliched storytelling devices there is. Sure, there was a spin on it, but the whole idea that “there is no now” in the afterlife came across more as a cheat than a genuinely interesting twist.

Although I’m among those thoroughly satisfied with the finale of LOST, I’ve come to the realization the past few days that the main complaint of this season was the idea of the Alt Reality and have wondered myself what it would be like if it didn’t exist.

I commend the originator of this project for his imagination and forthright intent to make his point in a creative way. I look forward to seeing his work. (Episodes 1 and 2 are finished and available.)

Now all we have to wait for is the upcoming extra 20 minutes in the full-season DVD set telling us the story of Hurley and Ben after Jack’s death. And the rumored television feature chronicling the lifes of those who managed to escape the island.

Wait. Is Dominic Monaghan Really Returning to LOST?


RUMOR ALERT!

E Online just posted the following:

Rumors have been swirling for the past month about Dominic Monaghan’s upcoming projects.

In addition to talk that he might have a role on ABC’s Flash Forward (with fellow Lostie Sonya Walger), there’s been ever-noisier buzz about a possible Lost return engagement. Could it really happen?

Well, we just got a juicy tip that suggests there very well might be a place for doomed rock bassist Charlie Pace in season six of Lost. Here’s what we’re hearing…

A reliable spy tells us that Monaghan, one of the key original Lost castmembers, and Lost show runner Damon Lindelof had breakfast together this morning at a Fairfax district eatery in Los Angeles. Of course, the meal might just have been a friendly sit-down between two colleagues (and/or because waffles are delicious), but as Lost-loving optimists, we have to hope that it was a meeting where the two talents came to terms about the story that puts Charlie Pace back in the mix for season six.

Now, there’s no telling what the last episodes of Lost will really be like. Speculation begins with a safe landing for Oceanic flight 815 and from there gets really, really crazy.

In the many months between now and the season-six premiere, the best we can do is sit back and let our imaginations run wild, collect pieces of the jigsaw puzzle and hone our dreams and theories about the castaways of Mystery Friggin’ Island. So what’s your theory?

If Dominic Monaghan is returning to Lost, do you think he will reappear as strung out 815 Charlie? Or would he be hanging out with Hurley (Jorge Garcia) as a transcendent (but dead) rock god? Does he have an alternate-universe dopplegänger? The possibilities are endless.

This is getting better by the day. First we have Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mr. Eko) telling TV Guide he wants to come back on LOST “To be able to give that rich character some completion would be nice,” Ian Somerhalder also telling TV Guide he may be back:

one just has to wonder…Did Jack succeed? Will there be a time loop with the Losties safely landing at LAX in 2004?

All I know is it’s going to be a long seven months.
