Not-quite-live from the Bell House for ‘Lost’ premiere

Picture 39Continuing this week’s pop-culture jag, we report today on the sold-out Lost premiere last night at the Bell House. More than 200 people packed into the Gowanus bar to have their collective minds blown and, well, pay $9 to watch a TV show. But those who braved the Tuesday night snow got their money’s worth: a performance by recap band Previously on Lost (who set the last five seasons to music), themed drink specials and an hour of free island punch and Dharma Initiative beer. Fans shrieked at every plot turn, as the Season 6 premiere brought even more twists than Oceanic 815 saw as it crashed to earth. Fans had a slew of questions they hope will be answered before the series finale. Here are some of them:
