With 'Prometheus' less than a week away from its domestic release, screenwriter Damon Lindelof has announced that he's taking a break from movies to go back the world that birthed his career in the first place: television. Why is this such a big deal? Easy: Lindelof was one of the head writers and showrunners on a little show you might have watched called 'Lost.'
Things have been awfully quiet from the home front of 'Homeland,' considering all the 'Dexter' news and castings that have spattered about. 'Homeland's first season left us in a pretty precarious place with its leads Carrie and the treacherous Brody, but the direction season 2 will take remains somewhat unclear. As long as we're in the dark, which former 'LOST' islander is going to light the way?
It's been about two years since the end of ABC's mega-hit pseudo sci-fi series 'LOST,' though we obviously haven't stopped talking about it. Even the most hardcore loyalists found themselves divided by the show's controversial ending, which to say the least, didn't exactly wrap up all of the lingering mystery threads in a nice little package. So what exactly does co-creator / executive producer (and 'Prometheus' writer) Damon Lindelof have to say for himself?
It's been a solid two years since 'LOST' finally ended its historic run with the divisive, yet aptly-titled "The End," but the rumor mill hasn't stopped churning with ideas and possibilities for a way to continue the Island stories so richly chronicled on ABC. After all, with many of 'LOST's mysteries still unresolved, even by the supposed "epilogue" included on the DVD, isn't a return trip due?
When ' The Killing' ended its freshman season hot-streak on an unfulfilled conclusion with more twists than answers, even loyal viewers of the Danish-imported series cried foul. So with ' The Killing' set to premiere its second season on April 1, an unlikely source has come to the defense of the controversial "Orpheus Descending."
Oh, that wily Bad Robot. It just can't get over 'LOST,' can it? First Desmond Hume (Henry Ian Cusick) signed up for a limited engagement on the J.J. Abrams-produced sci-fi series, and now 'Fringe' is about to get 'LOST' all over again by bringing back one of the island's most mysterious inhabitants.
Now, I don't exactly remember Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho' dabbling in smoke monsters, ancient mythology and polar bears, but it has been a while since I popped it in the old DVD player. But however your view of the past, it seems the backstory of the famous black and white thriller is about to get a whole lot more colorful.
Fans will bicker about the ending of 'LOST' until the end of time but one thing all can agree on is the brilliance of Michael Giacchino's original score for the mind-bending, time-twisting series. Indeed, many flashback-induced headaches were soothed by Giacchino's orchestral mastery.
