I'll put only part related to LOST, she seems such a nice woman :) let's enjoy what mama Damon thinks of the show !
Her commentary starts with the recap of previous developments on "Lost" — specifically, the tragic scene in which the beloved Jin and Sun died together on a doomed submarine.
"Oh, don't even show me this again," an anguished Susan Klausner says to the television. "No, no, no, no. Don't show me this again."
As the co-creator of the co-creator of "Lost" — as she's been called — the mother of Damon Lindelof is even more heavily invested in the show than most diehard fans.
"I feel like I'm losing a friend," Klausner says of tonight's "Lost" finale. "It made me think, and when you're over 60, it's a really good thing to be made to think. It's always a good thing."
This past Tuesday, The Record joined Klausner to watch the penultimate episode, "What They Died For," at her Hackensack condo. She also shared memories of her son's Teaneck childhood while everyone noshed on her homemade dark chocolate mousse and toasted the show with champagne.
Watching "Lost" with the dryly witty Klausner is a fun, interactive experience.
When, for example, someone from Oceanic Airlines (Desmond, it turns out) phones Sideways Jack to say they've found his "missing cargo" — the coffin carrying his father's body — she predicts, "He won't be in it."
Back on the island, Kate blames Locke for Sun and Jin's death and says, "We have to kill him, Jack."
"Yes," Klausner says.
When Sawyer comes onscreen, she sighs, "Oh, hot man."
Other comments: "I don't see Locke as a substitute teacher" and "Ben, I don't think I'm liking you."
And what did Mom think of Allison Janney's Mother character in the May 11 episode?
"I think she was protecting her children," Klausner says of the woman who killed the real mother of the two sons she raised as her own, to keep them from being corrupted by the outsiders on the island. "I think her heart was in the right place, but she was a little bit, uh, living out of reality. She was sort of paranoid."
Recently, tv.com argued that there are five types of "Lost" fans. And Lindelof said he'd put his mom in the "Eternally Confused and Faithful" category.
Does she agree?
"Absolutely," Klausner says, but later adds, "I probably know more than he thinks I know. But I'm most interested in the emotional connections."
She vividly remembers when her son called to say that he had an opportunity to write a treatment — or series outline — with J.J. Abrams. Not long after, her son called again.
"He said, 'Mom, they're giving us $11 million to do a pilot.' I said, 'How many zeroes did you say?' "
In 2005, when "Lost" got the Emmy as outstanding drama and a slew of other nominations, Klausner had a party at her place, complete with red carpet. Her friends had to come wearing high heels and glitz.
The following year, she accompanied her son to the Emmys. When he got up to call his pregnant wife and someone took his seat, Klausner tried to shoo the man away, not realizing he was a seat filler. "I'm not Hollywood-knowledgeable," she says.
Last fall, when Lindelof and fellow executive producer Carlton Cuse received an award at the Hawaii International Film Festival, her son invited her to the ceremony. They flew together from L.A. — where Lindelof lives with his wife, Heidi, and their almost-4-year-old son, Van, Klausner's much-loved grandson.
"It was my very first first-class flight, and it was fun, just being with him," Klausner says of her son.
On that trip to Hawaii, director/executive producer Jack Bender put her into a "Lost" scene in which Sideways Jack's son is auditioning for a music school. Klausner played one of the judges. Although she went by in a flash, her son later sent her a three-minute, 40-second DVD compilation of her outtakes.
Every Sunday morning, Klausner has a coast-to-coast video chat with him and his family.
"He's scary normal, because he's grateful for everything," Klausner says of her son. "He does not believe the media hype. He knows he's smart, but he knows he's also very lucky. He's grateful for being lucky. His first priority is his wife, his kid, his mom."
During the six-season run of "Lost," though, being the co-creator's co-creator did not entitle Klausner to story line secrets. In fact, when she visited the writers room in Burbank to chat with the writers, they confiscated her eyeglasses.
"They took my glasses, because they write on the walls. They have erasable walls," she says. "I couldn't see anything."
Her favorite "Lost" characters include Sawyer, of course, and Kate, Hurley and Jack.
"I love them for different reasons," she says. "But I think if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the intellectual. John Locke. Not the evil Locke, but the one who's struggling with redeeming himself.
"I can't imagine what this finale's going to be," she says, before speculating that "Welcome to LAX" will be the final image. "Not that this was an imaginary thing, but that they do land somehow at LAX and that the other things were the possibilities of redemption."
Before the episode began Tuesday night, Klausner made another prediction, part of which seemingly is turning out to be true.
"I think Jack is going to be the last man standing," she says. "I think Jack is supposed to stay on the island. He's going to be the keeper of the light, because what's waiting for him? Kate's going to marry Sawyer, if my son has a heart."
