Lost Survival Guide, new EW

Was this ever on ABC? My TiVo suddenly switched over to it. It's on an ABC+ channel (#190, to be exact) -- who knew?

Anyway, it's EW's guide to Lost, with the writers and editors of EW along with Damon & Carlton. No new footage. Nothing we didn't already know

So here's the first few topics, in order:
Plane crash
Jack
Kate
Monsters
The Others
The Flashbacks:
-- Specifically, Jack's Daddy issues

Hmmm. Anyone else see anything wrong with that order? Anything missing? But yeah, that's about where their priorities are, aren't they? (Even if EW put this together with no input from ABC, which could very well be the case.)

And this channel ... is just about ABC programming and ads for new shows, the local ABC web site, etc. Huh. I think it must be what else pops up in my TiVo list where I could record Lost. (Yeah, it's back in my Season Pass.)

They're counting down the Top FIve Castaway kisses. Have there *been* five? Yeah, I guess so. What about Shannon/Boone?! Sayid/Shannon?!!

5. Charlie/Claire *gags*
4. Sawyer/Ana *covers eyes, fast-forwards* AUUUUGH!
3. Hurley/Libby
2. Jack/Kate
1. Sawyer/Kate BUT OF COURSE.

Have you seen the new EW? Lost gets a page and 2/3 (Desmond!) but the Wednesday two-page spread goes to ... BONES??? I haven't read the Lost article yet because I'm sure it's spoilery.

AND THANKS VERY MUCH FOR THE SPN SPOILER PHOTO, BITCHES!

Yea! #1! Love the icon, too! It's amusing I recognized their lips right away...probably cuz I've watched that scene a bazillion times.

And, boo, no Sawyer...people are stupid.

Oh, they did eventually fit Sawyer in but I thought sure he'd be third, at least! OH well, just another dump recap show.

And yes! I think that ranks as the hottest TV kiss ever.

Hmmm...what's the date on that EW? Is it the one on the stands now, or the ones that subscribers will be getting in their mailboxes? I think I'm going to have to pick that up.

I got it in the mail today so ... not sure! And I usually get these on Friday. I'm going to scan and upload since a) I'm bored and avoiding writing and b) I haven't seen it show up on my flist or Lost comms yet.

I am upset about being spoiled about SPN, though. Oh well. It's a good spoiler, I guess!

That usually means that it'll hit stands next week, so I'll keep an eye out. I've seen one pic on a Desmond comm that I'm pretty sure came from the EW issue and UNH. They keep taking pictures of Josh and HIC crouching like that deliberately to seen fangirl bloodpressures spiralling out of control, I swear.

Eeep! I think that I've seen those photos that you're referring to on a few SPN comms, but everyone has been really good about keeping them behind cuts. It sucks when actual professional magazines don't feel the need to show the same courtesy.

Why is it that when you get your EW on time, I get mine late and vice versa? Damn mail!!!

Bones? Does anyone actually watch that show?????

I thought mine was late, since I got it today and not yesterday. I'm going to scan. I looked at your LJ and nada, bupkes! LOL.

So I'll scan the stuff that interests me, likely the same stuf you would be scanning. ;)

That was the dumbest "special" ever. EVER.

Agreed. Nothing new. And who cares about EW's editors' take on things? Srsly! Their A-Z guide in the mag a while back was similarly lame. I don't even read their Lost articles, for the most part, because they're usually about the "mysteries" and I don't care about them. Now a Josh Holloway interview, I would read! ;)

If there had been even one minute (or less!) of new footage at the end, it would've been worth sitting through it. They didn't even show a new commercial during the special. Stupid ABC.

Wtf? I don't have this channel!!! as;dlkfjs;lkfj!!!11! So this was done by EW? And Sawyer still doesn't exist to them? Is that right? Fuck.

In better news, did you read this?

I have Time Warner cable ... not sure of the package. And yeah, EW did it. They did get around to Sawyer, but not right off the bat. I expected it to go Jack... Kate ... Sawyer. Instead it went Jack ... Kate ... tons of other stuff, and then finally Sawyer. oh well.

Cool, thanks for the link! And yes, thanks to that whopping 15 second preview, we know they're being held separately. DAMMIT!!! Oh well, we'll always have our captivity sex fics! LOL. I did hope they'd be able to team up, though, at some point. Ahh, I love Josh! *crosses fingers for a good season* I do love it best when Jack and Sawyer have scenes together though. I am bummed to be deprived of that.

Well hell. I've got Time Warner too. But I don't use the box so I have the standard plan. No extra tiers. Oh well. It's going to be on Ch. 7 on the 10th in the afternoon anyway.

Grr. Now I'm in a bad mood. Thanks to that runover with the Notre Dame football game. If it had ended on time at 8pm there was scheduled a new 1 min (!) Lost promo. Urgh. But because those numbnuts played so slow it went to 8:30 and that made the schedule change to a 1 min Grey's Anatomy promo. Life sucks. :->

You didn't really think they'd make it easy for us to enjoy S/K/J did ya? Pfft. Split everybody up so no one knows what's going on with the other. Having them stuck together would require our heroes *talking to each other*! Can't have that. Geez get with the program girl! Hee. ;->

Urgh. Now I'm in a bad mood too. *sighs* But you didn't miss anything with this special. Not sure who it was designed for, cuz if you watch, you know all this stuff, and if you don't, 20 mins of quick recap ain't gonna do it.

As for S3, I think the concept of cast interaction is kinda lost on them. Maybe we'll get something good out of it, y'know, some major Sawyer angst, a BACKSTORY for him, even. At least we can hope there's no Michael or Claire whining about their damn kids in the first 6 eps!

Mmmm. I have set my expectations so low this year that I will be happy to get my 1 Sawyer fb this season, and be overjoyed at the lack of any more frogicides. So I'm good for now. :)

Eh, my back and shoulders are suddenly killing me. Time to get off the comp.

Aww, man, I keep trying to lower my expecations but I can't help myself. And I can't watch a show for just one actor, or else I'd be watching Rescue Me and Bones, LOL. So I'm hoping that they'll give us more than that. :-/ (Although yeah, it really IS all about Sawyer. And I'm wondering how S2 DVD sales will compare to S1 -- didn't they lose a million viewers in S2?)

Shit, I've been doing that since the The Hatch of Doom. Lol! Couldn't help it. :)

Yeah, S2 lost viewers. Sales? Won't be as good as S1 but they'll make the year end top 10.

Nighty night!

The article isn't very spoilery. It hints at things but isn't very spoilery at all.

Why on earth would they not include Sawyer? Is Kate more interesting in their minds? *is confused*

I like #1 (and kind of #2, but I didn't like Kate when that aired, so not so much), but the others... Seriously. I feel like I'm the one being weird when it comes to Lost these days.

Spoilers are the worst. Hope it wasn't too bad.
