‘Lost’ Begins Anew on Two Channels
Many people complaint that some serialized shows are tough to follow given their serialized nature. Complex ones, such as Alias or Lost, certainly have shed viewers who miss even one episode and get confused when they tune back in. These days, DVD box sets help a lot but not everyone likes to buy or even rent these.
For those people, today is an important one as both G4 and Sci Fi Channel begin rerunning Lost from the pilot episode going forward.
Sci Fi Channel will air the two-hour pilot and the next two episodes tonight beginning tonight at 7 p.m. Every Monday night the channel turns over all four hours of prime time to the series so you can get caught up in time for the new season’s debut on ABC sometime in January. The minisite also provides context and clues.
G4, on the other hand, will be offering one episode per night, beginning tonight at 9 p.m. but will offer them in their patented 2.0 format, with interactive elements plus on screen data such as facts, character profiles and creators’ commentary and polls, games, and chat functionality available online.
