TORONTO, May 13 /CNW/ - It's been called one of the most compelling television series of our time. Now, CTV says goodbye to the epic series LOST (http://www.lost.ctv.ca) with special programming leading up to what will become one of the most talked about series finales ever. It all culminates on Sunday, May 23 with a super-sized night of programming on CTV beginning with the two-hour retrospective special THE FINAL JOURNEY at 7 p.m. ET, followed by the two-and-a-half hour series finale, "The End" at 9 p.m. ET. Following the broadcast, CTV.ca hosts an interactive live chat with a panel of LOST experts, including author Nikki Stafford (http://nikkistafford.blogspot.com/), television columnist Andrew Ryan (http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/arts/television/andrew-ryan/) and ETALK reporter Lainey Lui (http://shows.ctv.ca/eTalk/Bios/Elaine-Lainey-Lui.aspx), to dissect every twist and turn in the final episode.
