Creepy new buttons! Grilled cheese sandwiches! A dude named Ben! What does it all mean?! I know - and so will you in less than 48 hours!

I just finished watching the most anticipated 43 minutes of the TV season (aka Wednesday's Lost premiere) and I'm virtually speechless. From the fraktastic opening sequence to the chilling final moments, the four-star episode (penned by Damon Lindelof and J.J. Abrams) had me teetering on the edge of my swivel chair the entire time. It easily ranks as one of the best Lost eps - possibly the best - since the pilot. An amazing feat since it only features four series regulars!

Send me all your questions at and I'll do my best to answer them (without pissing off ABC) in Wednesday's Ask Ausiello! OMG!

In the meantime, many of you have written to me asking for help translating Orson's cryptic French message to that dead body on last night's Desperate Housewives. Luckily, I have an "in" downstairs at Au Bon Pain, and I'm told he said, "I miss you, Monique." (Huh?)

Speaking of Housewives, last night's episode was the second in a row that I (gasp!) liked. If Marc Cherry and Co. can make it three for three - a streak not seen since the early part of Season 1 - I may start throwing around the "C" word.

But back to Lost, OMG! Send me your questions!
