Totally Lost

Countless websites have covered Lost over the years, from ABCsponsored summertime diversions to weekly episode reviews to the endless ether aisles of Lostpedia. It’s impractical to follow several religiously, let alone all, but I’ve whittled my list over the years to a handful of worthy places to share my early morning Wednesday coffee.

When I want to validate something I think took place, see an enlarged screen cap of a pivotal moment or research the endless twine linking characters and events together, there are few better places than SL LOST, Doc Arzt’ Blog, Lostpedia , The Tail Section and LostMedia. When I want to read some feedback from fellow show fanatics, I turn to Alan Sepinwall, Maureen Ryan and especially Doc Jensen.

Jeff (“Doc”) Jensen and Dan Snierson of Entertainment Weekly usually delve into some deep metaphysical wordplay, source countless books and historical events, draw the thinnest of threads into a golden rope and pontificate about ideas so convoluted and outrageous that one could easily contract a migraine just by reading their weekly tomes. Almost instantly, thousands of comments pepper their message board, making it as impossible to follow the reactions as it is to quickly understand their current theory.

But they also give us a weekly video file called Totally Lost that has changed from an initial video podcast version of their column to some of the most outrageously funny stuff on the Internet. And they have really outdone themselves this time, thanks largely to their two special guests Mark Pellegrino (Jacob) and Titus Welliver Smokey/Man In Black/Nameless Brother of Jacob).

Watch Totally Lost…a six-parter this week!

Pelligrino and Welliver get playful discussing their characters in Across The Sea. And after you see What They Died For tonight, join many of your fellow fans online at the sites above to share your thoughts and theories. Remember – you will live together or die alone.

Food for thought…Pellegrino must get confused bouncing back and forth between Lost and Supernatural, since his characters have appeared to be almost polar opposites of good and evil. And as for Welliver – is there a show he isn’t on? The charismatic actor plays recurring characters on Lost, Sons of Anarchy and The Good Wife…none of them particularly righteous, by the way. The man is a busy dude.)

Some fun sites to carry you over until The Lost Weekend:

    Love the EW coverage. Been reading the blogs and watching those fun videos for the last couple years. “Doc” Jensen is the best. Be sure to watch Letterman from last night [Wednesday].Carlton and Damon did the top 10 with a special appearance by Ben. Very funny.”Due to pressure from the internet we’ve been forced to include Betty White.”
