If you’re someone who’s a spoiler-phobe let The Blot give you a quick reminder to stay away from this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly. It includes some of the same tidbits from the aforementioned Lost article in its News + Notes section at the front of the magazine. Not only did they not put a spoiler warning in the beginning of the article “Lost Creators: Isle Be There For You,” they included a picture that pretty much is a spoiler in and of itself.
And lastly, there’s been a recent update as to the scheduled airing dates of new episodes of Lost. According to TV Guide’s Michael Ausiello in his weekly segment Ask Ausiello (for the week of Wednesday, February 27, 2008), ABC has decided to go back to their original plan of ending “the current, pre-strike arc with Episode 8, not 7 as was the original plan.” (link)
Therefore, according to Ausiello the remaining 9 episodes of Lost Season 4 should air accordingly:
Episode 5 - February 28th
Episode 6 - March 6th
Episode 7 - March 13th
Episode 8 - March 20th
Episode 9 - April 24th
Episode 10 - May 1st
Episode 11 - May 8th
Episode 12 - May 15th
Episode 13 (Season Finale) - May 22nd
Oh yeah, The Blot’s heading out Thursday night to the Matchbox Twenty Exile In America concert with Alanis Morissette and Mute Math, so this week’s Sawyer-ism and Lost episode review might be a little late depending on when I get a chance to watch this week’s episode "The Constant." Look for either a concert review or an episode review this Friday.
The Only Thing That Could Come Between These Sisters…
Is A Kingdom.
You know there is a lot of “talent” on The Other Boleyn Girl’s promotional poster but let’s be honest, no matter how great the cast is there is absolutely no chance The Blot will be seeing this movie. Evidently it’s based on a 2002 novel of the same name by British author Philippa Gregory. According to Wikipedia, The Other Boleyn Girl “is a romanticized account of the life of the 16th-century aristocrat, Mary Boleyn, who was the sister of Queen Anne Boleyn and one-time mistress of King Henry VIII of England.” (link) Sounds like a pretty big snoozer to me, but Eric Bana is a fine actor so you never know.
The movie also stars two other celebrities you might recognize on the poster, Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson. So maybe the movie will have a little more drawing power than I’m letting on. Besides, Natalie Portman doesn't make bad movies right? Well let's just ignore last year’s Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium. I guess only time will tell how this movie does in the theaters.
As a bonus I want all the potato-heads out there to know that Hasbro has decided to continue its line of movie themed Mr. Potato Head figures with an Indiana Jones Mr. Potato Head - Taters of the Lost Ark. This follows in a long line of Mr. Potato Head movie tie-ins including three Star Wars themed figures (Darth Tater, Spud Trooper, Artoo-Potatoo), a Spider-Spud figure and my all time favorite tie-in, a Transformers Mr. Potato Head - Optimash Prime.
