Sci Fi Channel to Begin Airing ‘Lost’ Reruns in September

We still have months to suffer in anticipation before the fifth season of Lost kicks off in 2009.  While we all patiently wait to find out where and when the island teleported, there’s a variety of ways to rewatch the first four seasons of the series.  There are the DVDs, with the fourth season hitting stores on December 9, and you can also watch every episode through iTunes, ABC.com or Veoh.com.  However, if you long to rewatch Lost complete with commercial breaks and a lengthy wait between episodes, you’ll be happy to hear that the Sci Fi Channel will begin rerunning the series on Monday, September 15.  According to TheFutonCritic.com, the network has scheduled its Fall line-up, which includes Lost as well as premiere dates for Ghost Hunters and other shows.

Lost will kick off its first cable run on September 15 with a block of four episodes beginning at 7pm, and will continue to run in four-episode blocks every Monday thereafter.  Even though I see no reason to watch the show on the Sci Fi Channel when there are so many better options available, it’s definitely a perfect fit with the network’s brand.

One thing that doesn’t fit at all on the Sci Fi Channel is ECW, aka Extreme Championship Wrestling.  However, because people can never get enough of meatheads in spandex throwing each other around, the series will return on Tuesday, September 30 at 9pm.  It’ll be followed by the fall premiere of Scare Tactics at 10pm.  ECW will take over the time slot vacated by Eureka, which will broadcast its mid-season finale on September 23.

Ghost Hunters and Destination Truth return to the network a few weeks earlier, premiering on Wednesday, September 3.  The new series Sanctuary, which is billed as “the first television series to feature live-action actors against primarily virtual sets,” begins over a month later on Friday, October 3.  It’ll take over the 10pm time slot after Stargate Atlantis airs its mid-season finale on September 26.

As interesting as these shows are, the news we’re really waiting for is when the network plans to air the last half of Battlestar Galactica‘s final season.  Until then, revisiting Lost certainly isn’t a bad way to pass the time.
