The Writer’s Strike May Delay The Fourth Season of LOST

8 Nov

Oh crap:

Says Lost cocreator Carlton Cuse, “Damon [Lindelof] and my concern about running the [eight] episodes we will have made is that it will feel a little like reading half a Harry Potter novel, then having to put it down. There is a mini-cliff-hanger at the end of Episode 8, but it’s like the end of an exciting book chapter; it’s not the end of the novel. Damon and I didn’t write [the ending of Episode 8] differently [with the looming strike in mind]. We wrote it to be the ending of Episode 8.” In any case, he concedes that the decision to hold or air the episodes isn’t ultimately theirs. “It’s really [ABC honcho Steve MacPherson’s] call,” Cuse notes, adding, “No one was happy with the six-episode run last season.”

As much as what he stated makes sense, and as much as I thought the 6 episode mini-season was a clunker last year, I’ll really miss LOST if it’s gone for essentially TWO years. Any momentum that the show might’ve still had will be gone by then, and the audience will no doubt be smaller. Waiting until January 2008 was long enough in many fans’ minds; having to wait until February 2009 may just turn off an entire batch of fans.

Let’s hope all of this is moot and the strike is settled in a month’s time so we can all get back to our regularly scheduled LOST lovefest. Or else I’m gonna be pissed.

    The main reason banks get so much profit on credit cards is that most people are not able to analyze all the aspects of using credit cards. I hope this site will help
