The 'Lost' finale: ABC makes a night of it

ABC is seeking to make an all-night event out of the series finale of "Lost" on Sunday, May 23. TheWrap.com reports that prior to the two-hour episode that night at 9 p.m. ET, there will be a two-hour retrospective. Then later that night, one of the most famous "Lost" fanatics, Jimmy Kimmel, will do a special "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in honor of the show.

So, "Lost" fans will be able to get their fill of the show - and then some - on the final night with five full hours of programming.

Are you savoring every minute left of "Lost?" Are you planning a big "Lost" finale viewing party? Post your comments below and let us know.

    Lillian Posted on I like using the swear words that make me uncomfortable in bed. Now I've got my parentr swearing up a storm too. LOL. He pretty much never, ever swears outside of this context, so it comes off as extra-filthy. *smit*

    I hope more Network execs take notice! LOST is better directed, produced, written and casted than most movies in the theater. Normally a show as brilliant as LOST is shunned by the networks and ends up a huge success on cables HBO. So please TV execs, I beg you.... less cheesey sitcoms, less reality shows and more shows based on brilliant writing and acting!!!!

    It's good for a good show to end. Sadly, popular shows goes on for years until the excitement of the original season is *lost*. Like NBC's Heroes? Give the story a fitting end and everyone will appreciate it in due time.

    I like the idea of spin-offs. I think there should be a cheesy Sawyer-Miles buddy cop spin-off, a Ben-Locke-Arntz (spelling) high school drama spin-off, and another where Desmond and his limo driver cruise around solving mysteries!

    I think Elizabeth Mitchell will show up in the last episodes flash-sideways and meet Sawyer (Lapierre) and live happily ever after. That would make me happy. I hated when she apparently died in the last episode of Season 5, and then died again the first episode of this season. Excellent and beautiful actress.

    I have loved LOST...Started watching while Alias was ending. Desmond and Penny and Sawyer and Juliet have been my favorites. Loved last week's show when Elinor Hawkings was found out to be
    Charles Whitemore's wife. and how Desmond and Penny met. I don't think I could take a 2-hour wrapup. I am ready to wrap this show up. YES BROOKE, there is still good stuff on TV. Start watching V and Flashforward. Terrific shows. I really want to know why Charles Whitmore wants Desmond on the island? We find out about Hurley romorrow night. That should really be good. Just want Lost to answer all the questions we really want to know and Hurley to become the new Man in Black. Wouldn't he be great as the new smoke monster?

    All of this hoopla over a shipwreck and a three hour tour....oh wait that was another little buddy and island. Lost got really weird after the first season. I stopped watching a long time ago. ABC should look at the "Six Feet Under" series finale. One of the most creative ways to end a show I've ever watched.

    I feel sorry for the people who have nothing better to do than post negative comments on here... Even if you don't like the show (more likely, don't understand the show) trashing it publicly is not making your opinion more jusified, diminishing the show for real fans, or making you look smart...

    I think the best way to end the series is to follow the model of the ending of Blazing Saddles. They all manage to get on a boat or the plane that Lapidus flew there, or a fleet of rubber duckies, I don't know, but then pull back, back, back until you see all the grips running around, the Honolulu skyline in the background, and the various limos all parked in a long line. And they would all have to crash through the Fringe sound stage. 🙂
    Of course, I would not be disappointed if the series ended as a dream, in fact, Bob Newhart's dream.

    So, a two-hour retro in front, and a one- or two-hour Jimmy Kimmel (never watched, don't know how long it is, shoot me now) in back. That leaves a............ two-hour series finale?
    Five hours of 'Lost' programming, but with only maybe two hours of 'Lost' actually in it. I'll pass, and just download later as usual.

    Lost is not the "best" show ever. It is or was one of the better shows on television it is good but not as good as The Closer, In Plain SIght or CSI.

    It is different and it did start out as intriguing and complex but has become all too complex, to convulted. I DVR the shows and watch them so I can fast foward past the flash forwards, flash horizontals, flash verticals I am not sure what they are, but most of them I completely uninterested by or in. (In the most recent flash Sun and Jin got off the plane from Austrailia, unmarried, Jin on some strange errand for her father, but flash the other way and they are married, she was leaving him and he surprised her at the airport) It is the Lost verison of the Sliding Doors movie, two separate realities,

    I don't think I could stand 5 hours of Lost. I will record the final show and fast forward until they reveal (or don't) that it was in fact all a dream or finally make Jack or Hugo or someone they haven't shown yet the new Jacob (archangel, God, Jesus, or maybe he is the devil) who contains but doesn't defeat the Smoke Monster (the devil, antichrist, Locke or maybe he is God, Jesus) because without the eternal battle between good and evil we would be Lost.

    Think about it. Nothing ever really happens that the viewer can trust. Very few people who die ever stay dead. Many, many things have happened that have nothing to do with anything anymore, so why were they there in the first place? They actually pay people to write this stuff without requiring them to be responsible for the poor characters' no-where journeys. What a hoax. I'm disgusted with everyone connected with the show except the actors, who are wonderful. Anyone who says they follow anything that's going on in that show is delusional, not intelligent.

    Once a fan, but now disappointed, due to a fairly lackluster last season, I'll be watching, but glad to see it end. As I'm sure many have their favorite characters (mine was the real Locke), and many have their notions of how it will end, I'm also sure that many will be disappointed with the finale, as it may conflict with their preconceptions. Overall, a good to very good show, but not great, as it could have been.

    Lost is for people who are observant enough to spot subtle plot details. It is not like other shows on T.V every thing you see is part of a larger scheme. Its about Light Vs. Dark, Evil Vs. Good, its so much more than just castaways on an island.

    I loved Lost with a passion until this season. It's been hard to watch recently, with it's bizarre ramblings and lack of meaningful direction – or anything else. At least Desmond is back... so I'll give it yet one more week before I'm done with it.

    Currently I'm thinking Penny will reveal herself as the real Satan, while Sawyer clearly is, as it turns out, God Almighty Himself.

    I Love Lost! Physics, Philosophy, Team work! It a jumble of brain teasing story lines. Every week, I wonder "where is this going"? Guess we're all working on "It worked" and wondering what it all means especially now that Desmond is back on the scene, and able to switch back and forth between the two realities. How's he going to get the gang back in touch with their Island memories? Why? What happens next? I don't know but I wish Lost would not end, but somehow take another quantum leap.

    Its the only show I seen that has been put together to flow one episode after another from start to finish. Most shows play it by seasons and up with some crack ending due to early cancellation.

    @ cindy: About the use of the word "retarded"- I myself have a learning disability, and I don't see any problem at all with it.
    But on to the main topic: I think we can all agree that the quality of TV, as a whole, has taken a nosedive over the past few years. Lost was no exception. I was intrigued by the premise, but during the past couple of seasons the writers have simply gone overboard with all kinds of subplots and flash-sideways (did those even EXIST before this show?) Although I'm sad to see it go, to be honest, it was time.
    And for the record, I think Jersey Shore ranks up there with the worst crimes against humanity.

    I agree, they should do a spin off, or two, from the show. Like more about the island before the plane crashed, more about "the others", Jacob and the MIN. I think it would be really cool to "know more". LOST would be done, but kind of not really, because we would get more of the show. I am excite to find out more of what's going on before it ends, but sad at the same time, because that means it is just going to end all the sooner. I think us LOST fans should protest to ABC about doing a spin off of the show.

    @jake ... Yes i think is a subliminal experience to watch a Lost episode, i've been following it since day one, even tho sometimes a didnt like some twist, turns and character developments i kept following because the main premise of the show is interesting. You can not expect to have everything u like and wanted on a tv show, there are things u are gonna like or dislike period. But for us LOSTIES it is and it will be the best tv show ever, because we emjoy watching it, takes ourselves to a different place and makes us wonder... That is called entertainment.
    @jake i dont even understand what r u doing reading and posting on a show u dont like and u hardly watched, it will be more positive and productive if u actually post on something u like. Like 90210 perhaps????

    @Terre I actually feel the opposite. I stopped watching Lost from the 3rd or 4th ep. because I felt IT was brainless–see just SOME of my reasons in my other post. I hate brainless shows, and that's why I steered away from Lost pretty early on–whereas others saw excitement, I saw predictable conflicts between characters, with equally predictable resolutions. The storyline "twists" I almost always see coming from a mile away, including a random ep. I caught late at night on Syfy–a flashback where a woman's baby had to be born to her and taken care of BY HER–from the instant I saw this flashback, I knew the twist would be that the medium she went to for guidance would have put her on that plane to GUARANTEE that she raise the kid herself. I finished watching to ep. just to see if I was right. I was. A no-brainer.

    Subliminal? Lost? You...you cannot be SERIOUS. I usually don't post on a forum where I dislike a show, either, but I enjoy reading the comments and THAT ONE blew me away. Here's Lost's "sublime" flavor for you–third or fourth episode, don't recall which because it insulted my intelligence that much. Iraqi guy says to white guy: "You're just a racist!" White guy says to Iraqi guy: "Yeah, and you're the terrorist!" Bwaaaahaaaahahahaaaaaaa! Lost = Laughable dialogue, predictable scenarios and cliffhangers, rehashed ideas, questions that are meant to spur your curiosity without the writers ever giving forethought to answers (X-Files anybody?), and a HOST of good-looking actors who never seem to look really "lost," i.e. they have plenty of makeup and shampoo and other things to keep them lookin' good. Best part of Lost? First 3 mins. of first episode–it all fell apart once the actors started speaking.

    All these people who claim to be fans and yet they don't own the past seasons on DVD and have seen episodes only once?! Lol And saying you won't buy the DVDs if the ending isn't good?? Real fans already own the past seasons. A "perfect" ending on any show is never achieved. One episode does not a real Lost fan make.

    I'm seeing it through to the bitter end myself, just because I still care a little about Sawyer, Hurley, and Kate, and want to see where they end up, but I won't kid myself and say this show hasn't taken a nosedive in terms of storytelling and character integrity.

    Give me a break. The show is good. But not worthy of all night coverage like Seinfeld or MASH. I dont even think those shows had all night coverage. Lost has been too inconsistent with many up and down seasons to be considered one of the greats.

    I used to LOVE this show, and now I love to hate it. It started out so brilliantly, with such an intriguing premise, but it turned out to be too intriguing. The writers painted themselves into corners they can never from escape from, so now faithful viewers like me have to endure more and more preposterous plot lines as the show tries desperately to bring us to some sort of satisfying conclusion. I know I'm going to regret watching this to the bitter end, but there is no escape. I have to stay tuned...

    MARTA it's because they're trolls, they get off on it, they live to get under peoples nerves. pretty sad if you ask me, to rely on that for entertainment, but that's what some people have to do when they don't understand a show as complex as LOST. i will probably watch all 5 hours, i've watched since the beginning, but i'm sure ive forgotten a lot, so a nice recap will be much appreciated. i know without a doubt that this ending will be epic, it won't be a dream or imaginary story in someone's head. abrams, lindelof, cuse, they're better than that. once this series is over i will be sad for 108 days.

    I'd rather see a special where they give the actors a final curtain call. Talk to the actors and let them discuss how the series has affected them, if they are satisfied with the series ending, etc. Kind of like the season wrap up on Survivor. That would be more interesting than a 2 hour retrospective. We've come to know these characters so well that a glimpse into the actors' real lives(not sideways!) would be interesting.

    Since I've religously watched every episode, I really don't need a 2 hour retrospective. I would think most Lost fans would be in the same boat. Maybe ABC is thinking the finale will attract non-Lost fans and thus they will need a primer.

    I wish this show didn't have to compete with Idol each week. It really does screw with the ratings

    Cool. I am glad the series is coming to an end. Most shows lose their luster after too many seasons and I don't think LOST is an exception. Plus, it will be nice to get closure.

    What I wonder is if LOST could become a franchize like "Star Trek" or "Stargate". It wouldn't be hard to imagine. Several seasons could be spent delving into the past history of the island. There could be a show based on the origins of Jacob and MIB. And since time travel is involved anything is possible.

    I love Lost, but a two-hour retrospective prior to a two-hour show? That's a lot of Lost. I probably won't sit and watch the entire retrospective; I have a 15-month-old to look after. But the two-hour season finale, you can bet I'll be there. My husband says that depending on how the show ends will dictate whether we get the show on DVD or not; he's stubborn. If he doesn't agree with the ending, he won't want to buy it! So, make it good ABC!
