EL CUATRO ES NUMERO UNO!*
Is the Spanish Lost promo coming to the United States?
The hot rumor in Lost land over a cold weekend was that ABC is planning to run the muy caliente* Lost promo by Spain’s Cuatro network, with Terry O’Quinn handling the voice-over. As this column went to post, I wasn’t able to confirm, though Lost insiders tell me that ABC has been considering the possibility of using the Spanish spot. Separately, Darkufo.blogspot.com reported on Sunday that ABC will be airing a new, 1-minute promo for Lost during tonight’s episode of The Forgotten. I can confirm that this is true — but it won’t be any version of the Cuatro promo. Most likely, it will be an extended version of ABC’s thematically rich if slightly less geektastic ''Amazing Grace'' promo, which you can see right here:
But who knows? Maybe ABC will surprise us tonight with something different. So to be on the safe side, I’m going to DVR The Forgotten tonight and zip through it tomorrow to see what aired. Not that I’m terribly opposed to watching Christian Slater’s new drama in real time, it’s just that I won’t be home. Tonight I’ll be attending the opening of ”The Lost Underground Art Project” at Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles, where all 15 of the previously released Lost posters will be on display, plus the final poster, which I’m told contains two teases about the new season. Now, if you read the last sentence and thought ”Lost Underground Art Project? What in the name of Henry Gale is Doc talking about?!” — don’t worry. I’ll explain more in a minute. But first, let’s watch that Cuatro promo again, because it’s just so damn muy bien!*
*Editor’s note: As you may have surmised, Doc Jensen does not speak Spanish.
