A six-episode retrospective on the TV show Lost hosted by SYFY WIRE's Senior Producer, Tara Bennett, and renowned TV critic, Maureen Ryan. Fifteen-years ago, Lost changed the television landscape and its impact is still influencing what we watch today. For this podcast series, we're not recapping episodes. Instead, we're exploring how Lost impacted high-concept, serialized storytelling, opened the door for shorter U.S. seasons, created a transmedia landscape that fed water-cooler TV, ushered in a new era of fan engagement, and went on to populate the next generation of showrunners and landmark television series.

For Fans Of Lost And Fans Of TV In General

This podcast does an excellent job of looking back at the impact that Lost had on the TV landscape as well as on TV fandom. The hosts, Mo Ryan and Tara Bennett, both were there at the beginning and they have the experience to give us an insightful look at the Lost phenomenon and how it has influenced TV shows that came after it. The two of them have great chemistry together and there are lots of interesting guests as well. A must listen if you're a fan of the show or even if you're just a fan of TV and how it has evolved over the past 15 years.

A writers circle jerk

A bunch of monotone hosts agreeing about great they are and how much LOST influenced tv culture. There was no discussion of any episodes, themes, or interpretations of the epic show. Everyone that spoke on the show agreed that the finale was great and that anyone who says it wasn’t is just an anonymous internet troll yelling at the tv like a Jets fan. I wanted to hear about LOST, not transmedia and award ceremonies.
