Puzzle pieces making up a usually pretty picture

I don't know if they are going to do more of these, so for the record, I am going by the first thirteen episodes, of 2007 and '08... released to keep the viewers of Lost hooked until the fourth season started(after the third ended... which is about how far you should definitely have seen before taking them in). I don't have an exact account of how it went, I understand that it was considered both making them web-based and putting them on cell phones, as far as where people could watch these, but I found them on ABC.com, all available. It contains several main cast members(and some guests, as well), and has stories from the three thus far aired years of the show. Put together, they're around half an hour in length, so between one and four minutes each. The production value, if not necessarily always(albeit for the most part) entirely reaching the high level that we're used to from what this is an off-shoot of, comes darned close. There are hints and mysteries in this, also for the fans. The acting, directing and writing are of impressive quality. The music... these appear to actually be scored. It seems very polished. There are a few odd moments in these, though the overall is certainly a positive. I recommend this to loyal followers of J.J.'s popular television effort(the humor of it is also present in this). Well worth the time spent. 8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

"Lost: Missing Pieces" is a mini-series that consists of a total 13 very short episodes. these range between 1.5 and 3.5 minutes and most of them feature two characters from the show interacting. There are exceptions. The last episode only has one character and the one on the golf course has 3. I wonder why they changed that basic idea. Going for 2 from start to finish would have been better in my opinion as some sort of general rule. I have not seen the television series that this is connected to, but i felt some of the snippets were actually very relevant moments, so I am a bit surprised that these weren't in the series. Anyway, Matthew Fox played his part well here, Elizabeth Mitchell I did not like that much and they (as well as some others) appear in several episodes. Difficult to say which one is my favorite, maybe the first with the father-son talk. The whole collection of 13 short films runs shorter than a single "Lost" episode and the fact that Bender and Lindelof worked on many of these as well as on the show makes this even more interesting. Recommended to "Lost" fans, but not a must-see by any means.
