Over the last few weeks, two very popular TV shows came to an end. “Breaking Bad” went out with a bang, while “Dexter” flatlined and choked on its own absurdity. Don’t worry — I won’t spoil either of those show conclusions for you (for now). But I will spoil the endings to these 12 other shows. Click on, if you dare…
Just about anyone with a pulse can enjoy “Doctor Who” (9 p.m. ET Saturday, BBC America) — it’s that good and that much fun — but if there are ‘Lost’ fans out there who’ve never tried this frisky British import, now’s the time to get on board.
Never mind that “Doctor Who” has been going for decades. You don’t need to catch up on a lot of backstory unless you want to. Anyone — whether they’re ‘Lost’ fans or not — can jump right in this weekend.
But the important thing for ‘Lost’ fans to know is that, as was the case with the ABC show, “Doctor Who” doesn’t dabble in time shenanigans just for kicks. Read more… Keep reading »
It looks like casting directors have found the newly unemployed actors of “Lost.” News came this week that Maggie Grace, who played Flight 815 passenger Shannon, will grace the screen in “Breaking Dawn.” She’ll play Irina, a vampire of the Denali clan who has serious beef with the Cullens. [People]
Meanwhile, Josh Holloway has landed his first post-”Lost” role.

You know what gets old? How actors are always saying how much they hate watching themselves onscreen. Most claim that their voice gives them the heebie-jeebies, and some go as far as to diss their own movies and TV shows
. I’ve never been able to figure out if they’re for real, or if they just say it to sound humble. Either way … lame. So it felt like a breath of fresh air when, after the season finale of “Lost,”
Terry O’Quinn (who played John Locke) told Jimmy Kimmel that he loves watching himself on TV. That’s the spirit, Terry! In his honor, I wanted to do a slideshow of stars who say they love watching themselves perform. But I was only able to find two others. Find out who they are after the jump. Keep reading »
I’m one of those people who doesn’t like to do what everyone else is doing. I’ve known this about myself since pre-school, when all the girls chose pink as their favorite color and I was so annoyed that I chose purple. In my adult life, this dynamic manifests itself in my TV habits. I refuse to watch a show that everyone’s talking about (unless of course I’m legitimately into it, ahem, “Mad Men“). Do I have to watch the hottest show just so I can make awkward conversation at the water cooler? Answer: No, I don’t. Thus, when “Lost” came on the air six seasons ago, and no one would shut up about it, I decided I would not watch it. A show about plane crash survivors on an island? No thanks. I’m sure the show is as amazing and mindf**ky as everyone says it is, but maybe if everyone would shut their trap about it for one second, I would be motivated to check it out.
As you can imagine, the weeks leading up to the finale have been a rough time for me. Everyone’s talking about the others, wormholes, laser beams, or whatever is happening on that crazy island. I have been inundated with magazine covers, interviews, “Lost” party invites, and Facebook status updates galore all about this show that I don’t give a crap about. The result? I feel disconnected from the human race. For those proud few who feel the same way as I do, we need to support each other to get through this rough time. After the jump, five suggestions for surviving the most annoying day of our life. I’m thinking about calling it L-Day. Keep reading »
Wait—did I say that last night’s “Lost” festivities were four and a half hours long? Make that five and a half hours if you stayed up to watch the cast on Jimmy Kimmel’s “Aloha to ‘Lost’” special. The “Lost”-in lasted past 1 a.m., and so I like to imagine that all the television critics in the country were up pulling all-nighters, trying to gather their thoughts in time to post them this morning. As could’ve been expected, last night’s finale was as divisive an issue as health care reform and immigration. Some critics loved the episode while others were horrified. After the jump, read what the smart folks had to say about the finale and let us know which camp you are in. Keep reading »
