Seasons greetings, Lost friends and fellow fans! I hope that you're all enjoying some time off with your families and friends during the holidays.
I have some pretty exciting news - as a Christmas/early birthday gift (1/5), my partner used miles to get us tickets to Oahu for 3 days at the end of January...we will be attending the Lost Season 6 premiere on the beach on January 30, 2010!! For the last two weeks, it has been all I've been talking and dreaming about, and my heart is already racing as I contemplate just how amazing the experience will be. She knows and appreciates that I have spent the last several years writing extensively about the show, and that this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that we could not pass up. And that is why she is indeed my better half.
I will be providing on location, spoiler-free coverage for DocArzt's site (he is tentatively attending as well!), so you can follow along on TVovermind and our Twitter feeds (@jopinionated and @DocArzt). And of course I will provide links to all posts here.
According to Doc, they may only show the FIRST hour of episode 6.01 ("LA X") at the Sunset On The Beach event. Frankly, I am thrilled either way. Given my completely spoiler-free policy, I will not be providing any details about what they screen for us. The actual experience will be the focus of my coverage.
In addition to the event itself, I look forward to seeing Jen and Ryan from The Transmission, and hopefully Jay and Jack and countless other Lost podcasters, bloggers and fans!
So let me know if YOU or anyone you know is also going to be there, and we will definitely set up a time and place to meet on the beach ! I will have Lost Fan pins for everyone, and look forward to kicking off the final season in the most spectacular fashion imaginable.
By the way - my next Lost Rewatch post should be up soon, and I appreciate your patience.
Happy holidays to you and yours!
