In its last season, I’ve becomed addicted to Lost. I’m not a true fan but an interloper hopping on a cultural bandwagon. I admit, and there are at least a million people around the world more devoted to the show than me. However, that doesn’t diminish my admiration for the show and how addicted I have become over the course of several months. With only a couple episodes left before we all feel disappointed by discover the true meaning of the mysterious storylines, anticipation and nostalgia are reaching their plateau. There probably isn’t a better Lost resource than Entertainment Weekly, which has devoted its most recent issue to a look at the history of the series. There are plenty of fan sites and wiki’s available, but Entertainment Weekly (anchored by Lost columnist Doc Jensen) has you covered. Don’t believe me? Get a load of this massive section, containing more information and speculation than anyone really has time to consume. They just published a gallery of “exclusive portraits of the dead,” revisiting cast members that famously perished (spoiler alert) during the show’s run. Has any other TV series been able to make dead characters still feel viable? It helps when you’re Lost, and you can bring them back at any time.

(I may not know the Lost mythology as well as most, but I know that Harold Perrineau’s character Michael, was one of the most involving character arcs.)
