"Lost Moments" were a series of official previews aired on ABC to keep Lost fans' interest during the 13-week break in Season Three. It is also the name of Sky One's Video podcast featuring the same preview videos. Each week, a preview was supposed to be shown after an episode of Daybreak, which was airing in the usual Lost time slot during the mid-season hiatus (starting November 15, 2006). However, Daybreak was canceled December 13, 2006. Each clip featured new footage from future episodes of Season Three, more specifically "Not in Portland", "Flashes Before Your Eyes", "Stranger in a Strange Land" and "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead".

Following Daybreak's cancellation, "Lost Moments" aired during Grey's Anatomy on Thursday nights at 9:00 EST/PST. The ABC Lost website also posted these videos—exclusively to American Express cardholders on Fridays, and to the general public a day later. [1]
