LOST 10th Anniversay Reunion

lost cast
in Los Angeles will be hosting a cast reunion for the 10th Anniversary of LOST on Sunday, March 16, 2014. (That’s the 10th anniversary from the year the show started — it hasn’t been that long since it finished — though it has been almost four years, which is hard to believe — time flies.)

Scheduled to appear: Josh Holloway (Sawyer), Daniel Dae Kim (Jin), Yunjin Kim (Sun), Jorge Garcia (Hurley), Emilie de Ravin (Claire), Ian Somerhalder (Boone), Nestor Carbonell (Alpert), Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond), Malcolm David Kelley (Waaaaaaaaaalt), executive producer Carlton Cuse, and more.

Carlton talked about the show in an interview posted yesterday on Vulture. He’s still defensive about fan criticism of the ending. “We did the version that we wanted to,” he said. “Damon and I still stand by it. There was no answering-a-million-questions version of the end that wouldn’t have been didactic and awful.”

Whatever your opinion of the ending, the reunion should be an exciting event. For those of us unable to make it to L.A., there were hopefully be video posted on YouTube after the event is over.

You have to see this. Josh Holloway, Terry O’Quinn, and Jorge Garcia are singing “On the Bayou” while taking a break on the LOST set, sitting under a tarp with fellow cast mates.

The video is by @bethanyshady (Jorge Garcia’s wife), and you can watch it on her Facebook page.

LOST University Master’s Program teaser

LOST University is back with a “graduate” program. To access it, you will need a Blu-ray set, either the Season Sixset or the Complete Collection.

I expect that someone may eventually post the class videos online where non-Blu-Ray users can see them, but probably not right away, as ABC is likely to be vigilant for a while.

Below is an official teaser which has clips from “The Craft of Acting” class with Yunjin Kim (Sun), Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond), and Terry O’Quinn (Locke and notLocke). Below that is the promo email that ABC sent out on August 25.

August 25 letter:

The Question of Free Will in LOST

Flocke and Sun 6x10 The Package

Did you notice how in the last episode, 6×10 The Package, Flock said that he wanted Sun to make a free choice to join him?

Sun, to Locke: You killed those people at the Temple.

Locke: Those people were confused. They were lied to. I didn’t want to hurt them. Any one of them could have chosen to come with me. And I’m giving you that choice Sun, right now. I would never make you do anything against your will. I’m asking you. Please. Come with me.

That reminded me of the way that Jacob had talked about choice:

Jacob to Hurley, in The Incident: All you have to do is get on that plane. It’s your choice, Hugo. You don’t have to do anything you don’t want to.

Jacob to Ben, in The Incident: Benjamin, whatever he’s told you, I want you to understand one thing. You have a choice.

Ben: What choice?

Jacob: You can do what he asked, or you can go.

We saw something similar with Dogen, Lennon, and Jack in What Kate Does:

Dogen wraps a capsule in a piece of paper, and says something in Japanese.

Lennon, to Jack: He says you have to give your friend this pill.

Jack: Are you serious? Why don’t you give it to him?

Lennon: Because it won’t work unless he takes it willingly, and he won’t take it willingly from us.

What are we to make of this? Could it be that the MiB/Flocke, Jacob, and Dogen were all equally bound by some rule which says they should not force people to do anything against their will? Does forcing people to take action somehow undermine the validity or power of those actions, as Lennon suggested? What is so special, in the Island world, about choices that are made freely?

Or was Flocke just b.s.-ing Sun? After all, when Sun did make her choice — to turn Locke down — instead of accepting her choice, Flocke ran after her, which suggests he might have intended to try force instead.

Also, to what extent can Zombie Sayid be said to have made a free choice to join Locke?

Exciting line-up for the Hawaii Film Festival LOST panel

Carlton Cuse tweeted that the special guests have been confirmed:

Michael Emerson (Ben), Jorge Garcia (Hurley), Yunjin Kim (Sun), and Terry O’Quinn (Locke) will all be joining Darlton (Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse) in a panel at the Hawaii International Film Festival on Saturday, October 17.

That should be quite a show! I’m looking forward to seeing the video on YouTube (hopefully, some nice person will post it).
