question of the day: Will you watch ‘Lost’ when it returns in February?

The beginning of the beginning of the end for Lost, um, began yesterday with the announcement of the debut date for the final season: February 2, 2010. As Michael Ausiello at EW’s The Ausiello Files notes, 02022010 does sound like another puzzle number the show’s gonna throw at us.

He goes on to name those characters who will get top billing in the final season, according to ABC:

Naveen Andrews (Sayid), Nestor Carbonell (Richard), Emilie de Ravin (Claire), Michael Emerson (Ben), Jeff Fahey (Frank) Matthew Fox (Jack), Jorge Garcia (Hurley), Josh Holloway (Sawyer), Daniel Dae Kim (Jin), Yunjin Kim (Sun), Ken Leung (Miles), Evangeline Lilly (Kate), Terry O’Quinn (Locke), and Zuleikha Robinson (Ilana)

Confirming as returning on an irregular basis are a whole buncha folks were thought were dead:

Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet), Ian Somerhalder (Boone), Rebecca Mader (Charlotte), Dominic Monaghan (Charlie), Henry Ian Cusick (Desmond), and Katey Sagal (Helen)

But this is science fiction, and no one is ever really dead.

Will you watch Lost when it returns in February? Can you even recall what was going on last year, or whenever the hell it was we last saw a new episode of this damn show? (Wait… it’s coming back to me… something about a nuke…)

I confess that I was about the give up on Lost at the beginning of the previous season — I felt like it wasn’t going anywhere — but things picked up considerably as the season went on, and I’m definitely eager to see how the writers are going to resolve all the plot threads, and whether they’ll unknot the knots they’ve created. I’m especially afraid that they may have painted themselves into more corners than they can get out of without losing us.

It had better not all have been a dream, though. If we find out that Bob Newhart was on that plane, I’m gonna be really mad…
