The First Look at Season Five

Hello my dear friends -

I am planning an extra-special post for early/mid-November, so check back soon... but in the meantime, I just wanted to make sure you all caught the Season Five promo for Lost!

Drumroll, please...

(If you would like to take a look at the individual screencaps, click here and then hit the "view screencaps" button underneath the video.)

All I can say is that the new footage supports writer Brian K. Vaughan's assertion that Season Five "is definitely going to be the strangest thing that’s ever been on network television. Ever."

That's a BOLD statement, buddy! I LOVE IT!

I will be back with an analysis of the video above, plus some other goodies for you, when I return from my travels in a few weeks. Trust me, it will be worth the wait.

For now, I leave you with two thoughts:

1) I shrieked with glee to see Sayid kicking ass once again
2) The Best Line was definitely uttered by Kate to Even Older Aaron: "We're goin' on vacation, baby."

Awwwww... YEAH!

More soon,
- e

That looked just awesome and only the last 30 seconds was new stuff. I've only watched it once but plan to watch it about 8 more times..give or take. Yes, season 5 looks like it will just blow the socks off all the other seasons combined!!!

All I can say is "SWEEET!"

Oh my stars, a friend just sent this link to me and literally...the first thought I had was, "I've GOT to see if e's seen this yet!"

But of course you have. And now I am soooooooooooooo excited. Beyond excited. 2009 is going to be a very good year for us Losties. I feel it.

I am not going to have a social life come February.

P.S. I loved the promo background music. Sent chills up me spine!

OMG! So excited. The inner-nerd in me just ramped up again!

Did you see the yellow drug running plane that killed Boone falling when Jack said "Thank god for second chances"?

Looks like next season is going to be excellent.

A few more points I noticed when running through the video slowly:

The new DI log and name pops up very quickly (you have to be running through paused to see it)

Juliet uncovers something that looks remarkably like the hatch's unearthing in season 1

Someone in a chemical suit bursts out of a door in a cliff face with a gun (The backdoor to the Swan?)

The police station Sun was in was British I believe (the Policeman's hats looked very similar to the ones worn in England, which fits with her going after Widmore).

Hurley had a gun :D

Thats about all I spotted.

I loved Hurley with a gun saying, dude we should have never left the island!

And I totally agree with you on the Kate thing. Vacation?! not quite... ha ha

I can't wait for your post e.

Thinking about what is shown in the promo and if the island has moved in time and that is indeed the Nigerian drug plane and the Swan Station my only theory (which will most definitely be wrong)is that there will be a Back to the Future Part 2 vibe going on in season 5.

You know the Enchantment Under The Sea Dance where Marty revisits the events from the first film, though chasing a different objective.

Who's to say the islands current occupants haven't travelled back to a time when they were also on the island (ie just after the crash) So now there's two groups of Losties (one group minus the O6 and the dead) that the latter group must avoid the former while trying to pursue their own objectives.

They could even step in from time to time to save Boone and friends. You know, have a second chance

That way there could be two Locke's and one ending up Benthamed is not a big deal.

That could be why Richards appears immortal, there's a few different incarnations of him running around at different ages

Crazy and a little silly but it good be an explanation...

...Or maybe I should go back to working on my DeLorean and stop watching the BTTF trilogy.
