Lost: Odds and Ends

Morning, all.

The first "Back to the Island: The Book" email will be going out soon. If you haven't signed up for the mailing list, you can do so by shooting me an email at WhatIsWater@gmail.com. By expressing interest in the book you'll recieve updates, exclusives, contest stuff, and probably some baking recipes.

For those of you who haven't already seen them, head on over to io9 and watch the original audition tapes of folks like Jorge Garcia, Josh Holloway and Matthew Fox.

Or, if you're feeling a little more script-oriented, check out the scripts for the Pilot episode, Two For The Road, and Fire and Water (for some reason, Lost's writers enjoyed peppering their scripts with copious F-bombs).

Got any fun Lost links to share? Post them in the comments!

And if you haven't had the chance to pop over and check out Verbosity!, my new non-Lost site, might I suggest that you give it a try? Today we're offering up a fresh-baked game of Pass The Sentence.

Have a great week, all.

  1. Thanks for posting those links to the scripts, Morse. I had fun with the completely insane number of EMPHATIC CAPITALIZATIONS.

    It was fun to see some of the changes in the scripts as well. Interesting that Two for the Road initially had a mini-scene after Michael shoots himself, with Hurley sitting on the beach, and that the whole Michael-shooting scene was originally planned to have a pretty heavy musical backing. I'm glad they changed that one - one of my favorite things about that scene is just how quiet it is. It's more effective than a score ever could have been (even a Giacchino one).

  2. I like learning about behind-the-scenes decisionmaking like that, Katie. A change as relatively subtle as deciding on no music, versus Giacchino's score, really does hugely effect so much.

    The RAMPANT CAPITALIZATION is amusing, I agree.

  3. Here's another site with a bunch of scripts, including the Pilot, Tabula Rasa and Walkabout. Funny thing in the Walkabout script - the whole flashlight/penis competition thing went right over my head every viewing - funny to see it in print. Enjoy.

  4. These are awesome! What an enjoyable read. The F-Bombs were hilarious! I am in the pre-stages of writing up a continuation story of Hurly and Ben, I will post links when I get it up and running. Curious to all of your thoughts.

  5. [I think this is the last LOST post here, so I chose to write here] I can't wait to read your write up on "The New Man in Charge". Hope the book is coming along!

  6. From the "everyone's got an idea, buddy dept": It would be super if you put up a new post for discussion about this epilogue.
