Get with the Program was on break last Friday (did you miss me?) but fear not as this Friday we are back in action!
Lost Link Mania
This Sunday is - of course - the Series Finale of Lost. I have a feeling that even if you don't watch Lost you're aware of this, because there's no way that all of your friends who do watch Lost haven't been talking about it. Constantly. Sorry if this annoys you, but what can I say - shows like Lost - those that are so wholly original and engrossing and bizarre - are few and far between. Thus, when they do appear - they generate a cult following - and therefore, when they end forever - is a big effing deal!
I not going to bother speculating how things will or should end. In fact, I'm hoping that all of my guesses about the way things will go down will be wrong. I want to be surprised and wowed, and I am going to be an optimist and trust in the show's creators that they'll give the fans a satisfying ending that uh...makes sense. No pressure, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse...
But, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite Lost related links that I've seen turn up this week to prep yourselves for the upcoming finale. Check 'em out:

It's Never Too Early to Plan Your Fall Viewing Schedule
Most, if not all of our favorite shows will have wrapped up their seasons by the end of next week, if they have not already.
While, like I have mentioned previously, Summer TV has changed in the sense that there's quite a bit more good options to watch out there than there used to be, the major non cable networks (NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX and The CW, kinda) still tend to save their best new shows for Fall.
And - what do you know? - all of the networks held their Upfront Presentations this past week where they announced what all of these new Fall shows will be, as well as where on the schedule they will fall. I find this to be a really exciting time, as we can ponder what will be the next Lost (oh wait, there never will be another Lost, but there could be another show that is completely original and utterly engrossing - and for all you know it is in this bunch...), as well as what will be the next The Beautiful Life (Hellcats, I am looking at you).
Here on SideReel we've made a Fall TV Preview page where you can check out what each network has to offer, watch some previews and decide which shows you will (or won't) be added to your viewing schedules come Fall.
Some shows I'll definitely have to sample before I can decide for sure. Others can be ruled out solely based upon a one sentence description. Anything crime-y or legal-esque on CBS...no thanks. A show with Will Arnett and Keri Russell - I'm in! (love them both!!!)
So...before I share my picks for what I think looks most promising for the Fall - take some time yourself to check out the descriptions and trailers and see what is interesting to you. Some might say it's crazy to start thinking about this NOW, since after all, you have until the end of September (more or less), but I think for a TV lover, it's never too early to get started!
So I leave you with that homework assignment and one more:
