Lost Finale Mysteries Revealed!

"Henry Gale" and Lost's other Others: friends or foes?

ABC's Lost wouldn't be our favorite twisty-mystery series if the season-ender didn't bring up more questions than it answered. Here's our take on the most mind-bending moments from this year's finale. The OthersThey say they're "the good guys" — and we agree. We think "Henry Gale" and Co. are one-time Dharma Initiative members gone rogue. Now they are committed to stopping the Initiative's crazy testing and they need strong-willed Jack, Kate and Sawyer to help them. The Dharma InitiativeSo the Initiative — with all its testing in meteorology, psychology, parapsychology, zoology and electromagnetism — is evil? Hell, yeah. Polar bears in the tropics, a phoenix rising and human guinea pigs — this can't be good. Widmore L read more

What's the longest film title ...

Question: What's the longest film title ever? I know Dr. Strangelove, Marat/Sade and one of the Planet of the Apes films must rank up there!Answer: As my regular readers know, I'm always leery about superlatives — "first," "most," what have you — for a variety of reasons. Most people cite Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return of the Revenge of the Terror of the Attack of the Evil, Mutant, Alien, Flesh Eating, Hellbound, Zombified Living Dead Part 2: In Shocking 2-D (1991) as the longest English-language title of all time, but it's clearly a gimmicky joke — the movie it's attached to is actually Night of the Living Dead (1968) with new, "comic" dialogue à la Blobermouth (1991). So I'd rather go with real movies whose titles are at least nominally straight-faced (note that I did say "nominally"), like The Persecution and Assassination read more

It seems like every other ...

Question: It seems like every other movie I see advertised is based on a TV show, like The Dukes of Hazzard. But what about the other way around? I know there was a series based on My Big Fat Greek Wedding, but what other TV series have been based on a movie, and were any of them good?


Answer: There have been a handful of top-notch TV shows based on movies. The flop Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992) was revived as Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003); Robert Altman's acerbic M*A*S*H* (1970) became the long-running M*A*S*H (1972-1983); Neil Simon read more

Oh, great Televisionary, I ...

Question: Oh, great Televisionary, I vaguely recall a game show where the contestants got a chance to play on a giant pinball machine. Who was the host and how was the game played? Thank you.


Answer: Well, I... uh...

Sorry, Jeffrey — I was stunned into pfumpfery by your shameless worship (not that there's anything wrong with that). The show you're thinking of was called The Magnificent Marble Machine and it aired on NBC's daytime schedule from July 1975 to June 1976. Hosted by Art James, it featured celebrities who teamed up with average-joe contestants to play a 50-foot-high pinball machine. Without getting into too much detail, players were supposed to light up bumpers and earn points using a regular ball and a special bonus ball in an attempt to win cars and other big prizes. Before they could do that, though, they had to defeat another contestant in an initial round, which called for them to identify mys read more

A few years ago, William ...

Question: A few years ago, William Shatner hosted a special for TV Guide going through most of the sci-fi shows that had been on over the years. I believe that it was called "TV Guide's Best of Sci-Fi" or something to that effect. Is it available on video and, if not, what is the name of the old children's sci-fi show that starred Ruth Buzzi as a lost space person traveling from one planet to another? Do you know? Thank you.


Answer: Why, of course I do. The program in question, TV Guide Looks at Science Fiction, features Shatner presenting highlights from such notable shows as Lost in Space, The X-Files, Planet of the Apes and others. You should be able to find it on VHS and DVD at local video stores and online merchants.

The show you're wondering about is The Lost Saucer, y read more
