Here’s the story:
Sci Fi is planning to “stack” the drama in a weekly four-hour primetime block, possibly on Monday nights, and also has obtained the right to stream a limited number of episodes at SciFi.com.
G4, which will air the show as a primetime strip (Monday-to-Fiday), is planning to give “Lost” the same interactive treatment it has given such acquired series as “Cops” and “Star Trek,” dubbing it “Lost 2.0″ and offering viewers multiple interactive and Web-enabled elements.
The article says they’ll start airing them next fall. It’s a good alternative if you don’t want to spring for the DVDs. I don’t particularly care for the interactives that G4 offers on Star Trek. It’s kind of ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) TV for me, too unfocused.
As for the new, season 4, episodes of Lost, they’ll air in February. I can’t wait. I feel that it’s really “make or break” for the series in the first few episodes of the new season. They came awfully close to “jumping the shark” with the Nicky and Paulo story line. Maybe they’ll tighten things up since they’ve limited the number of remaining episodes and thus stick with the story and not go wandering into the wilderness like X Files did.
What do you think? Are you anticipating the new Lost season or is it over for you? Will you watch the reruns on Sci-Fi or G4? Would the interactives make it more or less interesting to you?
