BLOGGER JON LACHONIS PROVIDES "LOST" INSIGHTS
WITH SPECIAL EXPERT COMMENTARY ON ABC.COM
Beginning today, ABC.com will offer last week's episode of "Lost" ("The Substitute") with special Expert Commentary from the well-known blogger Jon Lachonis. As DocArzt, Lachonis has been one of the most visible pundits in the "Lost" fan-verse. In addition to his regular "Lost" blogs at DocArtz.com, he also serves as an entertainment writer for several online outlets.
ABC.com's new Expert Commentary feature allows viewers of the site's Full Episode Player an opportunity to experience insights from the stars of ABC's series and specials, as well as producers, writers, directors, production and costume designers, music supervisors and network executives, among others.
This season, ABC.com offers highly-interactive, community-driven features including user-created Top 5 lists, which allow fans to arrange, rank and share their personalized lists of show-related favorites; and Episode Commentary where fans can not only access commentaries created by series' insiders, but also create and share their own commentaries for each episode. Additionally, the site will soon unveil a Fan Art Wall, an interactive area for fans to upload, view and rate "Lost"-themed art created by fellow fans, and also give fans the opportunity to participate in the Ultimate "Lost" Fan Promo Contest, providing users a "mash-up" tool to create and share their own "Lost" promos with a winning promo to be featured on-air.
"Lost" airs regularly on Tuesdays (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC. The series' finale is set to air as a primetime event on a special night, Sunday, May 23 from 9:00-11:00 p.m., ET. Preceding the finale will be a recap special from 8:00-9:00 p.m., ET.
