"I REFUSE to believe..."
... That "LOST" now OFFICIALLY sucks.

I don't have the link, but I guarantee you all that I DID read the following filth in "US Weekly" from this past week:

"Has "LOST" lost it?"

The article goes on to say that "LOST" is taking advantage of its popularity and is "cutting back" on its originality - specifically: character development, background stories (of specific characters), hatch development, continuance of present plotlines and the MAIN "scare" - THE MONSTER!

I disagree with all of this.

Do I want "LOST" to go on for for 26 weeks straight without a break?
Well, DUH! Yeah! Of course I do!

Do I love the show the way it's coming at us?

YES!!!

SLANDER!

Though ABC is really pissing me off with all the reruns. I've never seen anything on this scale before, with regards to massive gaps between new episodes.

I think the plot, though, is finally back on track. I didn't care much about Claire, but we gained so MUCH last time...


Just don't tell me what I can't do.

The reruns is what is killing this show.....I've had many people who where hooked just don't care and will wait for the DVD's or podcast of the season is ready.

Side note: It's only about $30 for the season of podcast of Lost...that's less then the DVD's will do.

Hobbs, that price is for the episodes thus far. The price will likely increase by the end of the season.

I won't go so far as to say it sucks...but I certainly don't look forward to it as much as I used to. And anymore? I think I anticipate Invasion more than Lost.

Hey Wanda! I gotta say, I've completely lost interest in LOST. Too many reruns so I end up watching something else.
If the broadcaster can't be loyal to their viewers then I, as a viewer, can no longer be loyal to them.

They could learn a lot from 24.

I agree, I am so disappointed that we are being treated with all the reruns. By the time a new show does appear, we will forget where they left off. I am losing my enthusiam for the show.

i still think the show is great. the reruns suck. actually it's the looooong breaks between new episodes that suck. i understand sweeps and all that, and it will be great to have new episodes the rest of the season, but it is hard to stay addicted when there are 5 or 6 weeks between new episodes during the regular season.


actually, it's a PhoenixMons

Hell, I could deal with that kind of a break.

It's just the incessant 1-2 week breaks that are annoying the piss out of me.

10. "RE: I REFUSE to believe..."
Exactly.

I mean, if they used the 24 System (start in January) or even a Prison Break type of thing (take a three month break) and showed it in one or two big blocks, I'd be fine. And if they needed to break for a big sporting event or awards ceremony once in a while, fine, but when you have these breaks? It pisses me off.

8. "I do believe"
they are stretching new episodes thin so they don't have to shoot many more of them. Because somewhere down the line it has to be all about spending less money. In the meantime viewers are becoming more and more disgusted with all the repeats. After one of their many hiatuses I didn't bother to tune in because I assumed it was going to be another re-run. This happened to me twice and I missed those rare new shows. I'm not ready to give up yet but sheesh I hope they manage to pull a good amount of fresh episodes out of their hat. We need better continuity. Talk about lost!

I hear ya!

I was watching something else during one of the new shows and I have it taped. However, I have yet gone back to watch it. I don't really care if I see it or not. The reruns have really killed it for me and the new episodes that I have watched just doesn't seems to have the "darkness" that the first season had.

12. "RE: I REFUSE to believe..."
Damon and Carlton addressed these rerun gaps in the most recent podcast. They say the production company is incapable of producing more than 24 episodes in one year.

The "television season" runs for about 40 weeks. ABC demands new episodes in September, November, February and May for the Nielsen "sweeps" ratings periods that measure viewership and allow the network to set advertising rates.

With 24 episodes over 40 weeks, and a mandate to deliver fresh material in four different months, they only have two options: reruns of LOST or some other filler.

Unfortunately, we have to live with it. Perhaps next season ABC will understand we need a LOST fix more than they need ratings. Perhaps not.

16. "RE: I REFUSE to believe..."
Well, that's stupid. I think the regular networks need to start thinking more like cable and drop this whole working around the advertising agenda. If all the networks start organizing and doing things in a different way, then advertisers would follow suit. Besides which, if viewers are getting turned off, then they arenít going to even watch for sweeps and then the network will not get the ratings it needs to get higher advertising fees. Itís a pretty dumb system if you ask me.

I really like the way cable does their shows. Like Monk, or Dead Zone, 6 Feet Under, Sopranos... They all run pretty straight through then take a couple of months off. It's very satisfying to the viewer.

I too have LOST a lot of interest in LOST because of all the interruptions. It's like after a few weeks of no new show, out of sight out of mind, and I'm starting to think about just waiting for the DVD's to come out. Then I can watch it as I please.

Wednesday morning I heard a commercial for Lost on the radio. I don't remember the exact wording, but basically it was promoting the "mystery" of Lost. Only the mystery isn't the island, others, black cloud, etc. The "mystery" they were advertising was "Will it be a new episode tonight? Yes!"

I found it amusing that the ad execs apparently find the sporadic new episodes hidden amongst reruns to be of more interest than the show itself.

Sorry, I gotta disagree with you on this. I was so looking forward to watching Lost after my Tivo records it. Now I'm going through my Tivo suggestions first before watching Lost. I'm just so not into Lost anymore because of all these breaks and repeats. Top it all off, I'm finding myself fast forwarding OFTEN throughout the show. Lost is in danger of being deleted off my Season Pass - sorry...

Stamps feet
yanks out handfuls of hair
rolls around on ground kicking feet
screams ARGHHHHHHHHHH
froths at mouth
Stands up
brushes self off
wipes chin
That's what I think of LOSTS scheduled repeats & gaps.
But it's not enough for me to toss out my lifesize Sawyer cardboard cutout.

I'm just chiming in to say that I haven't seen a new episode in months. During the Olympics I missed a week thinking there'd be a break, then the following week (after the Olympics were over) I tuned in hoping to see a new episode and it was a re-run. My husband (who is in Iraq) is a big fan of the show and I had been taping it for him, so I figure we'll just wait until it comes out on DVD and watch it together when he returns.

I have missed far too much of this season now to have any clue what's going on. The uncertainty of when new episodes will air got to be too much for me.
