LAND OF THE LOST: The summertime buzz on Lost has generally been pretty quiet until recently. The DVDs of the first season are being released on September 6 (get that Netflix queue locked and loaded!), and so various members of the TV press flew out to Oahu for the DVD release party, complete with re-creation of the Oceanic Flight 815 wreckage and lots of clanking from the monster. (I think I need a new job.)
From the looks of it, a few interesting tidbits were disclosed. Daniel Dae Kim is taking lessons in how to speak English with a Korean accent -- apparently Jin's gonna learn some English this season. Josh Holloway made it to the party after shooting his scenes for the second episode, thus proving the relatively obvious point that Sawyer ain't dead (yet). And co-creator Damon Lindelof has confirmed that Episode 3 of the new season will provide the definitive explanation (or at least "definitive" as that term is used in JJ-land, which often means asking more questions than are being answered) of what's down the hatch.
Mark your calendar: the season premiere is September 21.
