"Lost" Season Five Premieres Tonight on ABC!

I've long since gotten hopelessly muddled in the complicated plotlines, but I am still eagerly anticipating the return of ABC's classy mysterious drama Lost tonight, beginning at 8pm with a lookback clip show, and then with a new 2-hour episode at 9pm.

Seldom has there been a show with such an attractive cast, even when mired in jungle muck or shackled in barred cages, and though I can't seem to remember anything past when that big scary noise blew everything up a few seasons back, I'm game for more.

There are countless -- and I mean that literally -- websites out there dedicated to lost, but for a fairly straightforward account, you might like to take a look at Zap2It's "Guide to Lost" here. If you are in the U.S., ABC's Lost site graciously provides HD video of all the episodes, but don't you dare try to watch if you happen to be outside the border -- it's like running into a brick wall, a really rude one, at that. I mean, not even a "Sorry"! (There are workarounds, of course, which we are happy to share if you drop us a line.)

This next promo is a longer version which was unveiled a couple of months ago to prepare us for tonight.

No matter if you are befuddled like I am or completely up-to-date on the goings-on on the Island and beyond, tonight's Lost event is a genuine thrill, television-style. After yesterday's incredible Inauguration coverage, we're back to earth again, but boy, what a ride we're going to have!

I'm glad you told me. Somehow I had no idea and had almost forgotten the show, too. Okay! I'll be watching. I hope you didn't mind my comment about wanting to eat the salamander, Lisa. He just looks so good.

I know that if I watch one episode of LOST, I'll like it. But I don't wanna. I just think it's so silly that everybody looks like they just arrived on the island, with their clothes all fresh and everything. I dunno. Somehow, it ruins it all for me. I know it's ultimately a fantasy show, but I'd have done it different, is all I'm sayin'.

Their clothes actually get pretty messed up as it goes along, plus lots of sexy -- I suppose -- jungle sweat to add to the allure. Makes me long for a laundromat and a shower! But the show is great!
