This past week we've counted down the most anticipated series of the new year, telling you what to watch and what highlights to expect from 2010's top TV. Coming in at No. 1 is our favorite epic TV series:
Premieres: Feb. 2, 9 p.m.Starring: Naveen Andrews, Nestor Carbonell, Emilie de Ravin, Michael Emerson, Jeff Fahey, Matthew Fox, Jorge Garcia, Josh Holloway, Daniel Dae Kim, Yunjin Kim, Ken Leung, Evangeline Lilly, Terry O'Quinn, Zuleikha RobinsonStatus: Returning for sixth and final season
This is the end. My friends, this is the end. And you know what? It's gonna be pretty freaking mind-blowing. Here's why even you who have lost faith in this groundbreaking series over the years (tsk-tsk) will want to check out the final 16 episodes, and you fans might want to keep a paper bag near by to breathe into...
There Are Answers. Finally, now that we are down to the very last season, Team Darlton is able to give the fans what they've been waiting five season for: answers! Who is the smoke monster? What is the Island? Why are they all there? It's all down to the wire now, and I can tell you that in the first two hours alone of Lost's sixth season, there are more "answers" to the show's huge mysteries than there were in all of last season. Even if you've fallen out of this series, you will want to tune in to the end to see what it's all about. And for you fans who've followed all along, you will not be let down.
Terry O'Quinn Is Front and Center. Remember a few seasons back when Terry complained that John Locke's storyline was small, meek and misguided? Well, if only he could have seen then what is ahead for him in the final season: a stronger, more intense and more commanding storyline than Terry has ever had on this series. T.O.Q. just plain rocks, and the twists he will take this season, like this one, will make you scream out loud.

It's Like a High School Reunion Without Having to Worry Whether You Look Fat. As you are well aware by now, nearly all of the Losties we've loved and lost (Dominic Monaghan, Ian Somerhalder, Rebecca Mader, just to name a few) will be back in some capacity for season six. It is a pretty awesome welcome-home party, with new connections you might not have guessed.
That's all just the teensiest, tiniest tip of one toe of that totally weird foot statue (which, yes, shows up again). So make sure you all tune in to Lost season six! Feb. 2. ABC.
