On September 22nd 2005, Lostpedia was created. That means it’s now 10 years old! It was also the first anniversary of Lost, and the day after the much anticipated Season 2 premiere was aired. During the years that followed, Lostpedia grew into one of the biggest fansites about the TV series on the internet. It became an incredible resource for fans to keep track of all the twists and storylines within the show as they obsessively documented everything from the number of crash survivors still on the Island, to more bizarre stuff like how many times a season Hurley said dude. I’ve been coming here since 2006, and I’ve been a member since 2007. So in order to mark this milestone, I’d like to go through 10 things which had a significant impact…Read more >
5 years after Lost’s ending, I still hear and read the opinion “that it was rubbish.” That it “didn’t make sense” or “it was a complete let down.” And yeah, astonishingly people still think they were dead all along. This post is my attempt to explain why Lost’s final episode hit the nail on the head in doing what it was supposed to do, and while it may have disappointed some (more on that later) it was certainly not rubbish. It was actually quite brilliant.
Please note, there will be spoilers in this blog if you haven't seen the ending. It's also quite long, but stick with it
If you already understand the ending, feel free to skip the next paragraph
Let’s get the big question out of the way first – what was the ending really all about. Ah yes, t…Read more >
10 years? Has it really been that long? I am of course talking about 10 years since the Lost Pilot first hit television screens and kick started a worldwide phenomenon. It was one of the most explosive TV pilots of all time, quite literally in the case of the opening sequence. At the time it aired, it was the most expensive pilot in TV history, rolling in at around $12 million – but it was worth every penny as 18 million tuned in to watch it. So it really has been 10 years since this incredible show took over our lives, and I’m glad to have been a part of it from the very start. I have a small confession to make though – I wasn’t there from the start...at least not September 22nd, 2004. I am British, and therefore never had the opportunity …Read more >
As I'm sure most of you are aware, Lost will officially have been on our screens for 10 years on September 22nd, 2014. I was thinking of a way that we could celebrate on Lostpedia. I know a lot of you will start a rewatch in the coming months, or you may have done already (I'm in the middle of Season 1 now). So here's the deal - I want to see some Lost tribute blogs reflecting on the past 10 years, and I'll stick them on the front page in the news section for all to see. It could be anything really. A review of the latest episode you've just rewatched, a tribute to your favourite episode or moments, the first time you watched the pilot, or indeed any episode (we all had to start somewhere), or just a collection of memories from over the ye…Read more >
Yes, you read correct. Someone on Wikipedia's FA selection panel either has a brilliant sense of humour or has a real soft spot for Nikki and Paulo. I just find it incredible of all the shows characters, they somehow came to the decision that two of the least memorable characters (in TV history?) were worthy of a spot on the front page.
