OK, so I could care less about the writers’ strike currently going on … except that it may throw a giant wrench into Lost’s fourth season. From what I’ve read, about half of the episodes have been taped, but if you’re a fan like me, you know Lost can’t be taken in in segments. We need a full season, a full arc.
I hope the writers and the bigwigs get things worked out, and this is the only reason why (OK, so I’d like to see a few more episodes of the Office and a few other shows as well).
Until Season 4 begins, the show has started airing a small teaser trailer in theaters. The teaser is now appearing on YouTube, and it mixes old footage with a few new shots (including a really quick shot of Charlie, who died in Season 3).
I can’t wait.
When the season does begin, expect a breakdown of each episode to appear on my site. Yes, I’m completely nerding out over this show, but oh well. It’s my right to be a geek. Below I’ve put still clips from the teaser up with a short explanation of each … enjoy.
Still clips from teaser
We see Hurley underwater on the left and an upset Jack on the right. This may be Hurley jumping in after hearing about Charlie, possibly an unsuccessful attempt to save him. As for Jack, well, he’s always pissed, isn’t he?
On the left, a mysterious mushroom cloud, looks like pollen to me, but it’s exploding. On the right, the number 6 is flashed for a millisecond … and some have already speculated it’s the number of survivors brought back on the ship. We shall see.
In the season finale, Locke threw a knife into the back of the woman who parachuted on the island as she was about to phone the ship. Locke, who doesn’t want to leave, couldn’t bring himself to do the same to Jack, who finally reached the ship. The photo on the right looks like a dog skull to me (then again, I’m no scientist, and those are pretty big teeth) … hope it’s not Vincent.
It looks like a new Dharma shield, which means a new hatch somewhere … looks like snakes or Medusa. On the right, it may be Jennifer’s favorite character, Desmond, looking at a cow.
And my favorite shot is Charlie, who was killed in the finale. Looks like he’s talking to Hurley after taking off sunglasses. I’m sure this is a dream, or one of those weird Lost hallucinations. On the right, looks like Charlie again … but it’s probably not. It appears to be a pilot, or somesuch.
