It’s been a hectic last few weeks here at BurnAllZombies: those of you who know us will know why it’s been a bit quiet on the updates, but with 2010 just around the corner, updates will be coming at you so fast, you won’t know what’s hit you.
New Year’s Eve is as good a time as any to look back over some of the best of what 2009 had to over. On that note, we bring you the inaugural Burnt Zombie Awards, a run-down of the finest movies, games, music, TV and comics had to offer this year. Of course, if you disagree, we can discuss below. It’s not as if we’ll send the zombies around if we don’t agree with you…
Yet another day, another SDCC post, only this one doesn’t involve comics or video games, but rather everyone’s favourite TV show, Lost.
With the cliffhanger ending of season five in The Incident, viewers are still unsure exactly what’s going to happen with season six. If we belive some of the cast, they’re not really sure either. Show-runners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have already promised that we’ll see a lot of returning characters in season six, including Emilie de Ravin as Claire who hasn’t been seen since season four, but more importantly, rumours abound that “dead” characters will be returning to the series, with actors Dominic Monaghan, Ian Somerhalder and Maggie Grace being spotted around Hawaii or in talks with the production team. Of course, that doesn’t mean much with the show’s narrative structure so dependant on flashbacks and visions, so it could be something as simple as Michelle Rodriguez’s appearance as Ana-Lucia in season five.
The two videos below, however, lend some credence to those rumours, perhaps indicating that the “reset button” was indeed pressed with that fade-to-white the came at the end of The Incident and perhaps Oceanic Airlines Flight 815 successfully made it to Los Angeles. Otherwise, why would Oceanic be advertising their accident-free record or (under the link) how else would Hurley have bought a fried chicken restaurant?
Season five of “Lost” came to a close with a feature-length, two-part spectacular, “The Incident.” Quite a lot happened in the ninety minutes of screen time, but as always with “Lost,” there was much more of a tease of what’s yet to come. Read more…
So…what do I say about “Lost” that hasn’t been said before?
Well, let me start with saying that I take back everything I ever said about it: I know I mentioned “Lost” before on this blog, but I should acknowledge the fact that I’ve only been feeling the “Lost-love for a little over a year now, and only really started watching it properly at the beginning of season four. All that said, thanks to the osmosis of the internet, I still know what was going on. I know everything, see?
So, “Follow The Leader,” also known as “the penultimate episode of season five” (when they’re showing the next two epiosdes together back-to-back, they’re not allowed to consider them two separate episodes.) Everything goes behind the cut to save you from the smoke monster spoilers.
Dear Mr. & Mrs. Lostwriter
I am writing this letter in relation to the behaviour of your recent episode. While it was fun, and highly enjoyable, you have presented your loyal viewers with, what we in the business, refer to as a “cocktease.”
Please do not do this again: next time, we will expect to get to at least second base, if not go all the way.
