    New season starts this Wednesday in the US, so those of us torrenting will be able to watch it on Thursday, hence I thought it was time to create an official thread :)

    Trailer!

    Can't wait for this. Ok, so the endless questions and little answers gets annoying, but damn if it isn't compulsive viewing!

    Not one second of new footage... :(

    At least it's better than the other teaser: "Who will I be?"

    We don't know, because the writers are making this up as they go.

    Can't wait for this. I don't even want to see any promo's for the show, I completely avoid information. I actually know nothing about the new season, except that it premieres tomorrow night.

    Can we make this a "no talking about the "Next week on Lost" trailers thread too? Just to avoid confusion :)

    Gonna have to sit the missus down in front of the Xbox tonight, I finished catching up last week but she's still 6 eps behind.
    Suits me fine, hardly pay any attention to the trailers, they keep showing exciting bits that turn out to be not real, or dreams (Eko falling off the cliff for example).

    Didn't FlightRisker have a "Next time on Lost..." thread? People could use that

    I think i'm going to wait until the first 6 have been aired.

    They're doing something funny this series like having 6 eps, a couple of month's break, then the final 18 eps.

    That break is when I'll watch the first 6 :D

    edit: retarded spelling mistakes etc.

    Yep back to back is the only way to watch lost.

    4 episodes a go leaves me satisfied but still wanting more.

    Dumb dumb idea by the network. How many TV shows have lost viewers because they mess around with the schedules?

    It's a great idea..

    They lost viewers last season because they tried to show them continuously, except there aren't enough episodes for a continuous run (Oct-May) so they mixed in re-runs in the place of a new episode - viewers got confused, and didn't know whether it would be a new episode or a repeat that week. This is blamed for the dip in figures last season.

    And that's the whole reason why they're showing 8(I think) in a row, taking a long break, then showing the rest, without mixing in repeats. I think it's a pretty good decision.

    Why can't they just show them all normally, i.e. in a single 23 week run like they do here on Channel 4?

    Anyway, I've got a colleague who'll be downloading each new episoe, meaning (hopefully) I'll be able to see them pretty soon.

    It's partly due to the intense filming schedule. They can't make a new episode every week for 24 weeks. It's too much.

    Secondly, the TV networks. It's all about retaining viewing figures over the TV season, advertisers need to have the show airing over a certain length of time else they'll drop support, they need Lost to lead in to other shows to keep ratings up throughout the entire season too.

    And Channel 4 just buy the rights to the show, and can air them whenever they want.

    Because Americans are mad. They have an advert break before the credits in most shows ffs :)

    Channel 4 show one just after the opening credits. Like 5 mins into the program.

    In the US, they have a commercial break after the Simpsons couch gag. :) Fun stuff.

    Lots of clips of new footage here

    I can't wait for this, i've read what happens in the first episode and it sounds awesome, especially the first 5 minutes before the Lost logo :D

    oh and it's six in a row, then around a 13 week break till the end of Feb and a 17 episode run with no breaks.

    Yeah, I found that really annoying for a while, but then I got used to it. The timing of ad breaks is a lot different to what I was used to in New Zealand. It seems like half of America only watch TV on Tivo these days, but I don't, although I often videotape programs so I can watch them later and FFWD the ads.

    Anyway, I guess this is the thread where I'll be saying "wow, what an episode" before anyone else. :)

    Whoops, downloaded the highlight one thinking it was the first episode. Bollocks. Thought E00 was suspect. Nice summary though.

    I've spent a decent amount of time watching TV in America, and I always hated it. It was more like adverts broken up by pesky TV shows.

    The TV ads are pretty bad in New Zealand in terms of quantity and there's no ad-free BBC type channel there, so I haven't found it too bad here by comparison.

    I saw one trailer some time ago which had new scenes in it. I could describe the scenes if you are interested but they could be considered as spoilers.
