Are you a fan of Lost? I certainly am – it is one of my favorite shows on television and definitely the one I look forward to most on a week-by-week basis (when it’s actually airing).

Season 4 left us with a pretty huge cliff hanger. A group of the survivors (dubbed “The Oceanic Six”) managed to finally escape the island while the remaining Losties are still stranded there. To add to their problems, Ben activated some crazy device which caused the Island to literally vanish. Oh and that big boat they hoped would save them is now a pile of small pieces.

Did the island simply move to another location? Well, I guess that’s not really a “simple” feat but you know what I mean. Perhaps it went back in time since time is clearly one of the main themes (and plot devices) of the show and of its creator, J.J. Abrams.

For those of us who have been waiting patiently for the start of the 5th season, our wait will soon be over with the season premiere airing on January 21, 2009.

For now though, here’s a clip from the season premiere 2-hour special that features Ben and Jack.

Ben is such an amazing character, played by such a talented actor in Michael Emerson. I love how he’s now working with some of our favorite cast members as a good guy of sorts (or is he?).

Also, here’s a sneak peek for Season 5 that features Evangeline Lilly as Kate:

What do you think? Are you looking forward to this as part of the big January lineup? Or are you burnt out on the never ending twists and turns of Lost?
