After Lost concluded Ty Mattson of Mattson Creative became a big fan of Showtime’s hit series Dexter. He was so inspired that he created one poster design for each of the first four seasons – highlighting the iconic moments from the show.
The Young Ones is a British sitcom which ran for two series of 6 episodes each in 1982 and 1984. The show combined a traditional sitcom style, slapstick violence, non sequiturl plot-turns, and surrealism.
The show revolves around four students sharing a house at the fictional “Scumbag College”: violent punk rocker Vyvyan (Adrian Edmondson); pompous anarchist Rick (Rik Mayall); long-suffering hippy Neil (Nigel Planer); and amateur con artist Mike (Christopher Ryan). Alexei Sayle also starred as members of the Balowski family, as the students’ Russian landlord, Jerzei, and as various other characters in the second series.

Featuring a badass, 1977 Pontiac Trans Am, a convoys worth of 18-wheel tractor-trailers, all the CB Radio chatter and colorful CB handles or nicknames you could take and an endless supply of crashed and crumpled police cruisers and motorcycles. Smokey and the Bandit injected 6.6 liters into America’s vernacular and everyone between the ages of 8 and 50 wanted a “Screaming Chicken” decal on their hoods and knew that if you’re “eastbound and down,” then dang it, you’re “loaded up and trucking” determined to do “what they say can’t be done.”
A pair of rich Texan’s, Big Enos & Little Enos Burdette lay down a challenge consisting of a trip from Atlanta, Georgia, to Texarkana, Texas, to pick up 400 cases of Coors (previously available only west of the Mississippi River) and return it to Atlanta in under 28 hours. Why? For the good old American life; for money, for the glory and for the fun. But mostly for the $80,000 in prize money.
Smokey and the Bandit became so much a part of American popular culture, it’s hard to believe it’s a 30+ year-old movie. Casting Burt Reynolds as a professional showoff, Bo Bandit, Sally Field as a runaway from the alter bride, Frog, Jerry Reed as the semi driver, Cletus Snowman with his trusty dog Fred the Basstt Hound. And Jackie Gleason in his epic role of Sheriff Buford T. Justice, of Texarkana—driving with his idiot son in “Hot Pursuit” of the Bandit.
My buddy @nickAD got a tattoo inspired by the ‘Lost’ television show that was done in iridescent ink. USA Today had users submit stories about their ‘Lost’ tattoos if they had one. Andy’s story reigned supreme!
Here is Andy’s story:
“In the late summer of ‘08, I took my Lost love to the next level by getting a Dharma tattoo inked onto my ankle. Since my good pal, Tom Davis had recently started working at Wells & Company Custom Tattoos in Vandalia, Ohio we decided to collaborate. I had been wanting to experiment with iridescent ink. My pal had never worked with the stuff, so we struck a deal: I would be his guinea pig if he would spring for the ink.
“If you’ve never heard of it, iridescent or UV ink is a dye that glows under a black light. The tough thing about tattooing with it is that you have to illuminate the surface of the skin just to see what you’re doing.
“The Dharma logo seemed perfect for this technique, with a thick, recognizable shape. The ink itself has an obvious throwback to the episode ‘Lockdown,’ where John Locke sees the blast door map illuminated by black light inside of the Swan hatch. We decided to use the Looking Glass Station’s logo — a white rabbit inside of the Dharma shape — a reference to Alice in Wonderland, and the (site) of my favorite Lost episode, the Season 3 finale.”
Andy adds, “The tattoo turned out great, and under normal light, it’s nearly invisible. It’s my little secret.”
THE FINAL SEASON OF LOST RETURNS FEBRUARY 2ND.
Questions will be answered as the world’s most talked about TV show arrives for its sixth and final season. It’s been six years since venturing through the looking glass and gleefully entering Lost’s masterfully woven web. Now we prepare to be thrilled and saddened as the TV phenomenon enters its climactic final chapter.
Season 5 of Lost left us hanging as Juliet detonated the bomb and potentially changed the islanders’ fate. Ben killed Jacob at the request of a resurrected Locke and we were introduced to the enigmatic ‘man in black’.
Meanwhile, mysteries from series past are begging to be resolved, including the strange set of numbers (4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42), the four-toed statue and, of course, the smoke monster. Not to mention the overarching questions that surround the series as a whole: what exactly is the island? And why were Jack, Kate, Sawyer and the rest of the castaways ‘selected’ in the first place?
In keeping with time-honoured tradition, series creators JJ Abrams, Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof are remaining tight-lipped. When asked about Lost’s ending, Lindelof sits teasingly on the fence: “Some people” will think it’s enormously satisfying. Other people will think it’s not satisfying enough. It all depends on the way that you watch the show”. Viewers will excited that a few familiar faces will be returning, namely Claire, who vanished without a trace in season four, Charlie and Boone, both of whom we apparently saw die in seasons four and two, respectively. All will be revealed as Lost makes its final voyage.

My buddy, Andy Nick over at NickAd created this wickedly in-depth survey for the upcoming and long-awaited 6th and final season of ABC’s hit TV show, LOST. Stop over, check it out and give him your feedback!
The final season will be a roller-coaster ride of charachter’s stories, island answers and inevitably more mysteries. I’ve listed a million questions that Lost has asked, ranging from obvious to obscure.
Directions: This is not a QUIZ nor is it a CONTEST. This is simply a survey meant to ask fans what answers they think we’ll get, and what those answers might be. Also, this small project is also meant to be a primer to stir up your Lost history and get everyone thinking about all the different loose ends again. Answer the questions according to what you think and before season 6 starts I’ll post a summary of results!
Showtime’s teaser poster for “Dexter” season four leaves a clear message: don’t mess with a serial killer’s kid. Now we’re presuming that’s just sauce on the tyke’s face, but the globs are obviously supposed to give you pause. Dex becoming a dad is going to factor into next season and let’s not forget John Lithgow also joins the cast as the “Trinity Killer” (because he kills in threes, naturally.).

Production on season 3 of Mad Men has begun. The season premiere is scheduled for August 2009.
Set in 1960s New York, the sexy, stylized and provocative AMC drama Mad Men follows the lives of the ruthlessly competitive men and women of Madison Avenue advertising, an ego-driven world where key players make an art of the sell.
The series revolves around the conflicted world of Don Draper (Hamm), the biggest ad man (and ladies man) in the business, and his colleagues at the Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency. As Don makes the plays in the boardroom and the bedroom, he struggles to stay a step ahead of the rapidly changing times and the young executives nipping at his heels. The series also depicts authentically the roles of men and women in this era while exploring the true human nature beneath the guise of 1960s traditional family values.
Mad Men depicts the society and culture of the early 1960s, highlighting cigarette smoking, drinking (alcoholic beverages), sexism, and racial bias as examples of how that era, not so long ago, was so radically different from the present
