Lost on ABC 

Now that an hour of my tv viewing time has been freed up by Fox's delay of Tru Calling, The Guyfriend has (not so) helpfully told me about ABC's upcoming series, Lost. I'm going to have to check it out.

Sci-Fi Wire has articles about the show here and here. The official show preview site is here, and there's a more informative unofficial fan site here. First of all, David Fury of Buffy fame is a co-executive producer. That alone is worthy of giving the pilot a shot. The show takes place on a South Pacific island where various mysterious and very unusual occurences take place. The cast is composed of the survivors of a plane crash onto the island. While freaky things happen, Fury assures us that there will be a rational explanation for everything... eventually. It might seem supernatural, but like Scully, they will figure out the scientific reason.

The cast includes Daniel Dae Kim (from Crusade, Angel, Enterprise, 24 and ER, among others) - yes, Gavin's back. That's at least two Buffy-Angel connections. For Lord of the Ring fans, there's Dominic Monaghan. There's also Josh Holloway, who played "Good-Looking Boy" in the first episode of Angel.

The show will be on Wednesdays at 8 pm, starting 9/22.
UPDATE (9/23/04): The pilot (part I) was phenomenal! This will definitely be an addition to my regular commentaries. Check the Episode Index for specific shows as they are aired.
