Did anyone else notice this last night during Flash Forward’s premiere? Don’t get me wrong. Joseph Feinnes is amazing. John Cho and Jack Davenport are pretty awesome too. But there were some big similarities to ABC’s other hit show, LOST.

There are a lot of hatches on the island in LOST, but I think this is the one I’d most want to be stationed at.
FOX has hired on Alex Graves to helm their latest, J.J. Abram’s produced drama series Fringe. The show, written by Abrams and fellow executive producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, is being described as The X-Files meets The Twilight Zone and centers around “a female FBI agent who is forced to work with an institutionalized scientist in order to rationalize a brewing storm of unexplained phenomena.” The project comes from Bad Robot and Warner Bros. TV, and in true Lost fashion, the pilot for Fringe (which has already been given a series commitment) will be a 2-hour event with a budget of nearly $10 million.
Alex Graves, coming off of NBC’s Journeyman (which is shutting down production due to the strike) is also serving as an executive producer for the show. Along with Journeyman, Graves has previously served as a director and producer on The Nine and The West Wing. Check out an advanced review of the Fringe pilot script over at Televisionary.

As many of you know, for the past few days several shoddy, cell-phone captured versions of the most recent Cloverfield trailer have been circulating the web. Finally, following all the spurious interpretations and misread clues, I’m happy to point you in the direction of the official (and completely visible) Cloverfield trailer.
A few things are finally cleared up. The movie is actually titled Cloverfield. Not Monstrous, not Overnight, not 01-18-08 – but Cloverfield. One clever bit shows a character’s face blurred out as further proof that the story is told completely (or at least primarily) via found footage. Lastly, we finally get a glimpse of the creature. It is NOT the silhouette of two hulking shapes dragging away a screaming woman as previously thought (that seems to be nothing more than two men in hazard suits), but a massive, apparently Godzilla-inspired beast which appears for a few frames about 3/4 of the way through.
Otherwise, not much has changed. I remain interested primarily because of the Lost staffers involved.
And did anybody else recognize Lizzy Caplan as the female lead? She played Lohan’s artsy, loner pal in Mean Girls. She was responsible for the haunting, guttural line “I guess it’s probably because I’ve got a big *lesbian* crush on you! Suck on *that*! AY-YI-YI-YI-YI-YI!”
