J.J. Abrams to direct next Star Wars film
J.J. Abrams will direct the next Star Wars film, Disney has confirmed after days of speculation, giving hope to many long-suffering fans who were disappointed by the past three installments in the iconic franchise. The announcement was greeted with celebrations on online networks by the films' army of enthusiasts who have already watched Abrams rescue the aging Star Trek series with a high-grossing prequel in 2009. The 46-year-old made his name with TV shows Alias and Lost and earned his stripes as a director of effects-laden blockbusters with Super 8, Mission: Impossible III and another widely expected Star Trek film Star Trek Into Darkness, due out later this year.

I Pretty Much Wanted to Die - The Origins of LOST
The origins of Lost, as told by the people who made it, in an exclusive first serial excerpt from The Revolution Was Televised
The story of Lost makes no sense.
And by that I don't mean the story on the show — though this is the point where you can feel free to insert jokes about the numbers, the outrigger shootout, or the reasons why Walt was "special" — but the story of how Lost itself got made.The creation of Lost defies nearly everything we know about how successful television shows — or great ones — are made. The idea for Lost came not from a writer, but a network executive. The first writer on the project got fired. The replacement creative team had a fraction of the usual time to write, cast, and produce a pilot episode. The executive who had championed the show was himself fired before it ever aired. One of the two creators all but quit the moment the pilot was finished. Nearly every creative decision at the start of the show was made under the assumption that it would never succeed. Everyone believed it was too weird, too dense, too unusual to work. And it may have been. But it worked, anyway. Read More...
New Book LOST Thought Hits Shelves Today
Sam McPherson, TVRage/Lostpedia staff
It's been a little over a year and a half since LOST went off the air, but the series has remained polarizing amongst fans (and former fans). The discussion regarding the series is still very much alive. That's the reason for the new essay anthology book LOST Thought, which hit shelves on February 29. Edited by (and featuring contributions from) Pearson Moore (LOST Humanity, LOST Identity), the book is a compilation of essays about the show, featuring entries from some of the biggest names from the LOST community. Jo Garfein (JOpinionated), Erika Olsen (Long Live Locke), Ryan Ozawa (The Transmission), Andy Page (DarkUFO), Sarah Clarke Stuart (Literary LOST), and Nikki Stafford (Finding LOST) are all figures of the LOST community contributing to the book. Lostpedia administrator, TVOvermind contributing editor, and TVRage contributing news editor Sam McPherson also contributed a rather thought-provoking piece about Egyptian themes in LOST, but he doesn't like to brag...

Birmingham-Southern College students take class based on 'Lost' TV series
Greg Garrison, The Birmingham News
Birmingham-Southern College's January term is full of unusual offerings, including a class called "Lost: My Religion," which plays off the cult-hit TV series "Lost," that went off the air in 2010. During class, BSC Chaplain Jack Hinnen lectures on moral and religious lessons and parallels. "We cheapen religion when we try to boil meaning down to just what happened," he said. It's more about finding meaning through stories, just as Jesus taught through parables, Hinnen said... Read More...
A Lostpedia Administrator Takes a LOST Class: Week 2
Sam McPherson, TVOvermind/Lostpedia staff
I've written thousands of words about LOST on both Lostpedia and TVOvermind, and still it was really difficult to write my first paper about the series. I struggled with what the subject of my paper would be as soon as I got the assignment. There was just so much I wanted to write about. The subject of the paper was simple: take a theme from LOST, find religious implications to that theme, and write a paper about it. For me at least, that's much harder than it sounds... Read More...
