Aloha Lost

Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, the showrunners of Lost, have also been BSG fans. Michael Emerson and Jorge Garcia have also spoken about their being fans of BSG.

Many BSG fans like myself, have also been big fans of Lost. So, as Lost comes its end tonight, it's worthy to note its passing into television history...

ttheblackbox created a fitting trailer for the finale:

ABC held a contest for fan made commercials and this one was the winner:

Also this week, there has been several articles speculating about how the finale of Lost will compare to BSG's Daybreak. Most likely the same controversies will erupt. For more on the subject see io9, io9, and Jezabel. In recent interviews Darlton including in their Times Talk, have made it clear that they never intended to answer every little question, and in fact some of the fan questions have already been answered if people had been paying attention.

Also recently held at UCLA's Royce Hall was Lost Live: The Final Celebration to showcase the Lost music of Michael Giacchino and the Colburn School of Performing Arts.

The Los Angeles Times has several rehearsal clips on YouTube.


Film School Rejects has a first look at the new Hawaii Five-O co-staring Grace Park:

Deadline Hollywood broke the news this week that Ron Moore has signed on with Sony to create new TV work:

Ronald D. Moore has found a new TV home. The Battlestar Galactica creator has inked a two-year overall with Sony Pictures TV to create and executive produce series projects for broadcast and cable through his production company Tall Ship Prods. Moore is coming off three consecutive overall deals at NBC Uni’s Universal Media Studios that were tied to Moore’s services on Syfy’s Battlestar Galactica... Sony is clearly making a push in genre series. The studio recently signed Smallville creators Miles Millar and Alfred Gough to an overall deal.
