Two very different reactions from two very prominent Breaking Bad fans, as Warren Ellis contemplates the final birth of Heisenberg, and Damon Lindelof pledges to stop talking about the Lost finale.
Lost alum Jorge Garcia will appear as a giant on at least one episode of ABC’s Once Upon a Time, the hit fairy-tale drama that returns for its second season Sept. 30.
ABC’s new fairy-tale drama Once Upon a Time has cast Lost‘s Emilie de Ravin in an upcoming guest role.
So, I admit it; I watched Once Upon A Time last night, and really enjoyed it. It’s not for everyone – Anyone who has a problem with the idea of turning fairy tales into what is essentially supernatural soap opera, this really isn’t the show for you – but there was something in particular about the show that made me think that it could be the Next Big Thing to influence genre TV to come… and that, weirdly enough, it may be the first piece of post-Lost genre drama on mainstream television.
For those of you just joining us, yesterday I wondered why we didn’t have a new Star Trek television show on the air already, before suggesting that, just maybe, such a show wouldn’t work on modern television anymore. Pick your appalled, disagreeing jaws off the ground; here’s where I explain what I mean.
What’s that, you say? People actually tuned in to the new version of Charlie’s Angels last week, and they might even tune in again tonight? You’d think that the remakes of Knight Rider and Bionic Woman might have killed the appetite for revisiting television’s greatest hits, but apparently not.

For everyone who wonders when we’ll find the next Lost, I have some news for you: It’s already here. A show that flashes forwards and backwards in time, has labyrinthine continuity and is centered around one big mystery? That can only be CBS’ long-running sitcom How I Met Your Mother.
Veteran actor Alan Dale, who played Charles Widmore on Lost, will appear as Prince Charming’s father in at least one episode of the upcoming ABC drama.
The Lost co-creator has reportedly signed a seven-figure deal to develop a family feature called 1952.
