Destiny Calls: The New "Lost" Season Five Promo

In exactly two months from today, we'll get to see just where (and, ahem, when) Ben moved the island to. But until then, those of us hungry for a new fix of ABC's Lost have had to wait quite some time.

Fortunately, ABC gave fans a brief sneak peek at Season Five of Lost with a new promo unveiled during tonight's Grey's Anatomy (and featuring "You Found Me," a new single from The Fray, from their forthcoming February 3rd album) that provides some new footage mixed with some familiar beats from the Oceanic Six's past.

Missed the promo? You can check it out after the jump.



Is that Desmond and Penny in bed together? Juliet and Sawyer holding hands? Hurley brandishing a gun and peering out of a door at some baddies? The castaways getting fired at with, well, fiery arrows by the hostiles? Charlotte staring down the barrel of some guns? Daniel Faraday being surprised by a yellow-suited Dharma worker from the Swan? You betcha to all of the above.

Just what does it mean? When and where are the castaways who survived the island moving? Well, just two months to go but my informed guess is that Ben moved the island back in time to the start of the Dharma Initiative arriving on the island and they're in the midst of dealing with some restless natives. I can't wait.

Lost returns on Wednesday, January 21st on ABC.

I cannot wait for the premiere!! Jack's looking very bad ass, Sawyer is great as ever and seeing Richard again just makes me giddy :)

This looks amazing! I forgot this was on last night and was kicking myself this am so thanks for posting. How does that compass get imbedded in Locke's hand and why does he look so weirded out by it? Were Hurley and Sayid fighting Jack? It was hard to tell. Could have done without the shots of the fray though.

In a word: AWESOME.

Hmm...Locke with that virgin mary statue makes me think that Charlie's story is going to be addressed further in season 5. I hope he makes another guest appearance. Also, that shot of Hurley looking at Sayid lying on the ground? Sayid totally looked dead!

@anonymous. Dead or just unconscious? I don't think the producers would let Sayid's death just slip into a musical montage promo like that. Good thinking with the virgin Mary statue though. That could definitely mean more Charlie stuff.

Fantastic promo (although I could have done without the music video portion). I am so excited for the return of Lost. It looks like it's going to be an incredible season!

I'd say the Virgin Mary statue, as well as the drug plane falling again, could mean we'll see more references to Eko as well as Charlie in S5.

Pilot Inspektor: CBS' "Smith"

I may just have to change my original "What I'll Be Watching This Fall" post, as I sat down and finally watched CBS' new crime drama Smith this weekend. (What? It's taken me a long time to make my way through the stack of pilot DVDs.) While it's on following Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on Tuesday nights (10 pm ET/PT, to be exact), I'm going to be sure to leave enough room on my TiVo to make sure that I catch this compelling, amoral drama. While one can't help but be impressed by what might just be the most marquee-friendly cast in primetime--Ray Liotta, Virginia Madsen, Jonny Lee Miller, Amy Smart, Simon Baker, and Franky G all star and Shohreh Aghdashloo has a recurring role--the pilot's premise alone earned major points in my book: it's a crime drama from the point of view of the criminals, who engage in high-stakes heists. But don't be alarmed; it's nothing like NBC's short-lived Heist . Instead, think of it as The Italian

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous season

The Daily Beast: "How The Killing Went Wrong"

While the uproar over the U.S. version of The Killing has quieted, the show is still a pale imitation of the Danish series on which it is based. Over at The Daily Beast, you can read my latest feature, "How The Killing Went Wrong," in which I look at how The Killing has handled itself during its second season, and compare it to the stunning and electrifying original Danish series, Forbrydelsen , on which it is based. (I recently watched all 20 episodes of Forbrydelsen over a few evenings.) The original is a mind-blowing and gut-wrenching work of genius. It’s not necessary to rehash the anger that followed in the wake of the conclusion last June of the first season of AMC’s mystery drama The Killing, based on Søren Sveistrup’s landmark Danish show Forbrydelsen, which follows the murder of a schoolgirl and its impact on the people whose lives the investigation touches upon. What followed were irate reviews, burnished with the “burning intensity of 10,000 white-hot suns
