LOST: Missing Pieces 9: "Tropical Depression"

Another week, another missing piece featuring Dr. Artz and Michael. In this week's installment we don't learn much of consequence but rather get the story of why Dr. Artz was on Oceanic Flight 815. And we get to see him catch the Medusa Spider that ultimately resulted in the deaths of Nikki and Paulo.

In other LOST news, Week 2 of the Find 815 alternate reality game kicks off in a little more than an hour. We are down to 24 days until "The Beginning of the End," the premiere episode of Season 4 of LOST, and there seems to be no end in sight for the writers strike. I think that we are nearing the point of no return to salvage what's left of this television season. The Screen Actors Guild and Directors Guild contracts come up for renewal this summer and they are likely to leverage the networks and studios to give in to the WGA demands or else themselves go on strike. The sad part is that the networks and studio heads deem the actors and directors somehow more important than the writers, so will likely acquiesce at that time. The writers deserve more respect than that. It's just sad really.
