'Lost': Faith, Science...and Scooby-Doo,,1550612_20250233_20253740_5,00.html

The Island's great debate (supernatural possibilities vs. naturalistic explanations -- trust us, the cartoon pooch figures into this too) resumes in season 5, and the Doc wants to know which side you're on. Plus: Marvin Candle and the role of Fate

By Jeff Jensen

Jeff Jensen, an EW senior writer, has been despondent since the cancellation of ''Twin Peaks''
Usually we begin our in-season columns with THE TEASE!, but ABC has been doing a fine enough job on their own by leaking various clips from tonight's premiere, like this one:
If you're choosing not to watch in order to preserve the experience of tonight's premiere, I applaud your restraint. But allow me to make two non-spoilery Doc Jensen observations. The name of Dan Norton's law firm, Agostini & Norton, links neatly to one Lodovico Agostini, whom Wikipedia describes as ''an Italian composer, singer, priest, and scholar of the late Renaissance.'' Agostini was a daring musician who lived during a time where daring music was all the rage. Sounds like Lost, a cutting edge show during a time of cutting edge shows. According to Wikipedia, ''Agostini was fond of musical enigmas, puzzles, surprise and double-entendre ... and bizarre chromatic progressions.'' That sounds like Lost to me, too.
