HEAR YE! HEAR YE!
Yo! Calling all Fish! Calling all Geese! All hands on deck! It's time to wake it up and shake off those Long Hiatus Blues. We've been waiting so long, it's hard to believe our waiting is actually going to finally END! It's almost time to get LOST again! We're going BAAAAAACK!!!!
So much has happened since we last left our Losties, but all in all it's been a pretty good hiatus for Fishbiscuitland. The Season One review has been fun. It revived my awe and my admiration for this epic work of imagination we've all been privileged to be a part of. Plus we gained a lot of new fans this year. Look! Even Matt Fox is a Fish Fan now!
If by any chance you had forgotten how much Time has passed since LOST first cast its spell of enchantment over us all, then just take a look at this cute In Touch Weekly magazine spread (thanks to Susan at Outlaws for the scan.) It's a blast from the past for various LOST cast members. You know things are coming to an end when the media starts getting nostalgic:

Look at them! It really goes to show what a difference a good hair stylist can make, doesn't it? It wouldn't have been the same if Jack had kept that Farrah Fawcett 'do. Although mocking Jack probably would have been twice as funny!
And Joshie with short hair? Would never have worked out. He's cute in an adorable sweet Dr. Awesome kind of way, but there's no badassery without that hair.
Locke never would have made it to icon status if Terry hadn't razored that dome either. No way. There's just no mystery.
As we've all learned along the way on this long strange trip, it's the little things that make all the difference. The devil is always in the details. ... Ah, the details! I get tired just thinking of how many new ones we'll have to analyze! Apophenics of the world, Unite! This is our last hurrah!
I hope everyone is as excited as I am. I'm on tenterhooks! I'm anticipating this show going out with a bang. No matter how we will feel about where all of our beloved characters end up, I think we can all agree that it's been one mind-frakking helluva ride. For better or for worse, there will never be another LOST.
In the spirit of celebrating the culmination of an iconic show which pushed the boundaries of network television, sometimes failed to hit the mark but always was ambitious in what it set out to achieve ... Let the COUNTDOWN begin!
