I’m getting freakishly excited about the return of “Lost” for its sixth and final season in a little more than a month. ABC has been stoking the fever nicely with its trailers and teasers for a few weeks now — kudos to whoever chose Willie Nelson’s beautifully spare rendition of “Amazing Grace” to accompany one of those blurbs.
Now ABC is mounting a “Lost” sweepstakes that promises to give 815 lucky winners a sneak peek at footage from the sixth-season opener and unseen footage from last season’s finale. (Juliet, are you safe? Or blown to smithereens?)
To enter the contest, go to http://lostthefinalseasonsweepstakes.com.
As ABC’s press release explains: “Upon registration, each contestant must answer six questions about the show, and are then automatically entered to win one of 815 “messages in a bottle.” The 815 winners will receive a “Lost” bottle containing a USB port that resembles character Desmond Hume’s fail-safe key. The key contains a video with a sneak peek at this season’s premiere – which will be the first time anyone will have seen this footage – along with scenes of last season’s finale. All prizes will be delivered on Friday, January 29.”
The real prize comes Tuesday, Feb. 2, when we all get two hours of fresh “Lost,” plus a recap spesh, for the first time since May. May! I’ve missed those guys…
