If the Lost season premiere last night confused you (shocking), maybe you should brush up on what happened the first five seasons. Last Sunday The Reduced Shakespeare Company performed a ten minute summary, “Lost Reduced”, for an audience of competition winners in London, and the video is online now.
The introduction was given via satellite by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, pictured above with a polar bear (I like to imagine his name is Percival). I can go one further than this video and sum up all five seasons with an eight word excerpt:
“All your questions will be answered.”
True story: way back in the second season, my cousin called me to tell me his cousin was going to be on the show. I wasn’t familiar with Lost at the time [knowing only vodka and Rollercoaster Tycoon, because I’m baller], so I asked, “What’s the show about?” After a long pause, he said, “Just f*cking watch it, okay?”
