• CrunchDeals: ‘Lost’ Seasons 1-3 for $58.99

    A little personal information about me: I’ve never seen a single episode of Lost. I understand it’s quite popular, though. A co-worker of mine at a previous place of employment was so adamant that I join the Lost-watchers club that she leant me the first season and then asked me every day what I thought of the show. After a month of not even taking the first disc out of the sleeve… Read More

  • CrunchArcade: Preview of "LOST Via Domus" for Xbox 360

    I’ve been playing Ubisoft’s “Lost: Via Domus” for a few minutes and so far it’s not too shabby. But, then again, I’m a huge fan of the show so I may be playing favorites. The game begins with you on the plane experiencing the crash from the perspective of survivor of Flight 815. You wake up in the jungle and can’t really remember too much of what happened. Read More

  • Secrets from Lost: Something about the black box

    Lost, blah blah Ben blah blah smoke monster blah. Blah blah Whitmore blah blah (“NOT PENNY’S BOAT!” said the hobbit) blah blah! Cash also says it is absolutely possible that a plane’s black box would still be in working condition after four months on the ocean floor. The current record goes to a recorder that, after nine years at the bottom of the Mediterranean… Read More

  • LOST's lost opening sequence

    http://www.collegehumor.com/moogaloop/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=1739531&fullscreen=1 You watched LOST last night, and it was good. But ever notice there are no opening credits for that show? It’s artistic choice, and we support it. But what if it did? And it was in the early ’90s or late ’80s? It’d undoubtedly be the video above. Kudos to Streeter and his crew at… Read More

  • Lost in-game video: Not Penny's game!

    CAV has some video from the upcoming Ubisoft Lost game, which I suspect will be a stinker on the level of TMNT for the NES. However, they do offer up some plot details including a secret “Hot Coffee” cut scene involving Jack, Ben Linus, the Smoke Monster, and Charlotte. It gets weird but near the end but not nearly as freaky as the Desmond/Crazy Jungle Dinosaur love scene near the end. Read More

  • Lost satellite phones aren't real, all of the castaways are really dead, go read a book

    Hate to spoil it for the battered fans of Lost, but those cool GPS satellite phones that the whoevers from the whatever on the good ship Howsyerfather are using to track each other on the island are not real. “No satellite phone handset that I am aware of has any form of touch screen available to the user,” said a spokesman for Globalstar Inc., a satellite phone network. Does any… Read More

  • Get caught up with LOST online, free, with SurfTheChannel

    [photopress:th_fcdEvangiline_Lilly.AA172.PLT.jpg,full,right]If you watched LOST for the first time last night and were totally, well, lost as to what’s going on, you’re so not alone. It’s a complex show that’s almost impossible to explain to anyone, I know because I’ve tried. You need to watch all the episodes to get caught up. All of them. My friend Viva (yes… Read More

  • Lost on Gilligan's Island Clips Surface on YouTube

    As geeks (yes, you’re geeks), you’re likely eagerly waiting for the next season of ABC’s LOST to surface. We’re with you on that one. But did you know that LOST has a lot more in common with Gilligan’s Island than the word “castaways”? In fact, the first incarnation of Gilligan’s Island was as a dark, mysterious drama, just like LOST? Read More

  • CrunchArcade: TV Games… Oh Why Can’t They Ever be Good?

    Two weeks ago we posted about games we’d like to see based on properties from the BBC, notably Doctor Who. But then we spent some time to think about it, and most games based on TV shows are actually less enjoyable than being stuck with basic cable during a long rainy weekend. TV is in a new golden age with some great shows on premium cable channels including HBO and Showtime, as well… Read More

  • Lost – The iPod Game

    What do you do when you have a failing TV show with a terrible plot line and you’re losing money on it? Create a mobile game! Duh! “Lost” is now available as a downloadable iPod game on the iTunes Music Store. For $5 you too can “Help Jack search for dynamite, tend to the wounded, and avoid the black smoke.” Sounds extremely exciting. Other activities include… Read More

  • The Futurist: Why New Technology Means Better TV

    As a general rule, journalists (particularly us of the tech stripe) go gonzo when trying to proclaim something a new “trend.” We take one example of a hit YouTube video and proclaim it to be the death of TV. The stories are usually the same: Lead with an example of a internet video that became part of the geek cultural canon (take the anti-Hillary Clinton/Apple… Read More

  • iPhone On Lost?! Nope.

    Actually no, you’re just blind. Quite a few blogs have been reporting that the iPhone was shown on the failing TV series “Lost”. Look at that screenshot above. Do the icons look similar to the iPhone’s? Sure. But what about the length of that device and the fact that it has a map on the screen? Hmmm, doesn’t look like much of an iPhone anymore. Perhaps if everyone… Read More
