LOST: the end coming soon?

After loads of Official Podcasts dropping inside jokes about Season 7 being the "Zombie Season", the producers have now let it be known that, among other things, they have been speaking to ABC in regards setting an end date to this crazy ride that is LOST. I, for one, am estatic.

In true super-fan thinking, this is a blessing in disguise. It puts to rest all of the assumptions that they a) don't know what they are doing (a gross misunderstanding from people who are too dense to fully engross themselves into the little things) and b) the show is going nowhere fast. I am of the following that believe that this can only help the show, as now the producers can truly focus. It seems like they've been living season to season, knowing how this thing will end up but not really sure of how they want to curve and bend the road LOST travels on. With a definitive set of seasons, it will make that journey a bit more fleshed out, which can only make things better, from the planning of production to the depth and wealth of character vs. mythology that they have already woven into the series already.

If you peep that link as well, you will also find the producers speaking on a number of interesting topics, from doing a straight run of 22 episodes or so (which will no doubt mean that the show will probably not start until the new year, as opposed to starting in September like it has done already), and SPOILER ALERT! a SLEW of spoilers towards the end of the article, from more info on the "arctic" scenario we saw back at the very end of the finale of Season 2, to some major shakeup that will involve the fact that, on the island, it's only November 2004, so only a few months have passed... and some other things I will not write down here. Can't spill all of the beans, but be forewarned: if you don't want to see any more spoilers, don't read the end of the article.

Keep it locked to this blog for more info as I obtain it. And keep it locked to ABC for LOST, dropping on Feb 7th. Holla.
