Poll: Did you learn anything new in the enhanced version of “Ab Aeterno”?

What did you think of the pop-up text (aka the pop-up hints) at the bottom of the screen in the “enhanced” version of the rerun of 6×09 Ab Aeterno?

LOST Schedule Tuesday, April 27, 2010 — Rerun of Ab Aeterno

Update 5/4/10 — The Finale will be extended by 30 minutes

Original post:

LOST Richard Alpert riding horse 6x09 Ab Aeterno

Richard Alpert will ride again on April 27

There’s no new episode this week, just a rerun of the Richard-Alpert-centric episode 6×09 Ab Aeterno. ABC is probably doing this to push the rest of the final episodes into the May sweeps period, which runs from April 29 to May 26.

Here’s the schedule for this week, and for the rest of the season:

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 — 9:00 – 10:02 Rerun of Ab Aeterno

Tuesday, May 4, 2010 — New episode 6×14

Tuesday, May 11, 2010 — New episode 6×15

Tuesday, May 18, 2010 — New episode 6×16. This will be the last new episode before the finale.

Saturday, May 22, 2010 — 8:00 – 10:00 A pop-up hint enhanced rerun of the original pilot!

Sunday, May 23, 2010:

7:00 – 9:00 Clip show
9:00 – 11:00 The Finale! (6×17-18)
(not sure of the time) — A post-finale wrap-up hosted by Jimmy Kimmel

And then …. crickets.

All times are an hour earlier for Central Time, and all times after April 27 are approximate.

Official ABC Podcasts

I’ve been catching up on some of the official podcasts —

March 25 audio podcast

Darlton, punchy after having just finished writing a draft of the finale, rehashed Ab Aeterno, prehashed The Package, considered the possibility that Flocke was not evil — and revealed the title of the finale — on the March 25, 2010 audio podcast.

March 30 video podcast

In this short video podcast, Darlton answered a fan question about whether the fish that Jacob was cooking in the Season 5 finale, The Incident, was, ahem, a red herring.

I love the idea that it was a kind of visual pun, and in fact, someone left a comment on this blog back in September putting forth the “red herring” idea — an idea I found really funny at the time and still do. Alas, in this podcast, Darlton deny that was their intent. But the whole podcast is so jokey, I don’t know if they can really be believed:

April 1 audio podcast

Darlton briefly rehashed The Package, talked about who might win in a Flocke-Widmore showdown, prehashed Happily After Ever, and answered questions about Richard Alpert’s hair, the squirrel baby, and, of all things, grammar. April 1, 2010 audio podcast

April 8 video podcast

In this video podcast, Nestor Carbonell gave a tour of the set of the Black Rock. He talked about how they filmed the scenes there in Ab Aeterno — how they created the illusion of the smoke monster, and how they got the boar, who wasn’t hungry, to gnaw on a body (don’t worry, it was just a dummy). Very interesting!

6×09 Ab Aeterno –Lost Untangled, and the official video podcast

Here’s the “Untangled” for last week’s episode. In honor of the Richard-Alpert-centric episode, Dr. Puppet Chang sports guyliner and a pirate’s hat.

The video podcast features Nestor Carbonell:
