For those of us out there suffering from withdrawals for new episodes of Lost
, ABC is helping out a bit. Instead of making us wait six weeks between new episodes, we get the first of two new episodes tonight. (I think the fact that ABC is luanching a new show, Eyes
, has a bit to do with this since Alias
tends to do better with new Lost
as a lead-in).
Tonight's episode is a Locke-centric one, which I have high hopes for. The last Locke-centered one was the brilliant "Walkabout" that pretty much cemented Lost
as a "must see" series for me.USA Today
features an article
about Terry O'Quinn who plays Locke. A lot of it is stuff we've heard before in an article a few weeks ago. But hey, it's still interesting.
In other Lost
news, the season finale has been expanded from 90 minutes to 2-hours. That's good news for Lost
. It's also scheduled to air the same night as the bloated, overhyped, overexpanded final episode of American Idol.
I hope Lost
kicks American Idol
's tail in the ratings that night. I just hate how every reality show these days has to have a 2-hour wrap-up show when, honestly, the 2-hour episodes would be better at the beginning of the season when there are more people to fill the time rather than just aimlessly trying to fill 2-hours of air time (I'm looking at you Survivor
and The Apprentice
