I'm watching. You're watching. Let's talk.

Lost on a big screen May 20 (or at least the show’s execs Cuse and Lindelof

In television on 04/05/2010 at 6:39 pm

If The Boyfriend finds out that I have invested either one more minute or one more red cent into the cryptic, inpenetrable utterly perfect TV series Lost, he will take back the iPad he just bought for me (well, for us, but still).

Other people facing Lost static from non-believer spouses/roommates/children/parents/home care nurses will understand completely.

And that is why no one will utter a word of this to him: On Thursday, May 20 at 8 p.m. in Montreal’s Banque Scotia cinema and Colisee Kirkland, Lost masterminds Damon Lindelhof and Carlton Cuse will be talking LIVE on the big screen about Lost, which will disappear from our TVs after the two-hour series finale “event” on Tuesday (doh! make that) Sunday, May 23. Tickets are $12.50 apiece. I know because I just dashed to Banque Scotia and bought two. (Non Montrealers can click here for  more info.)

It’s one of the Times Talks Live events that you don’t know about. And when I say you, I mean all of you who didn’t join me in attending the previous Times Talks Live events last year (we were three for the John Irving talk, pegged to his Last Night in Twisted River novel release, and perhaps five for Stephen King’s talk about Under the Dome).

The format: The New York Times hosts these chats in an NYC auditorium from time to time and now Cineplex is screening them live via satellite. Despite the fact that the Montreal events with Irving and King were very poorly attended (but excellent, especially King’s), Cineplex is once again hosting and Jacob bless them for it. The NYT host will be entertainment editor Lorne Manly. Lindelhof and Cuse will talk about the series they’ve shepherded, the mythology they’ve tended and the wild ride they’ve been on for the last six seasons. You can email your questions in advance to timestalks@nytimes.com. and the Times Talks Live people ask that you include your location and please remember that not all questions can be asked. People in the audience in New York will also be able to ask questions.

Don’t miss this if you are a committed fan of the series Lost. Never mind that it will be an awkward meeting of fans who spend too much time watching and surfing for web revelations about this great show. Never mind that. You come out. We’ll have fun. I’ll buy popcorn. And by that I mean that you can have a few kernels of my popcorn. But still.

See you there.
