Special Report: L.A. pays millions as police and firefighter injury claims rise
Ten years ago, "Lost" premiered on ABC, and millions of fans were destined to spend six years puzzling out the myriad puzzles, hints and clues the show\'s creators, J.J. Abrams, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, laid out for them. While there are many retrospective essays to be found online about the series, no tribute can top the one "Phineas and Ferb" will have for it.

The Disney XD series will premiere "Phineas and Ferb: Lost in Danville" on Sept. 29, 10 years and one week after the show originally began. Significance in those numbers? Only true "Lost" fans can say for sure.
Lindelof, who is currently serving as co-creator and executive producer of HBO\'s "The Leftovers," provided the plot for the episode. It turns out Lindelof is a fan of "Phineas and Ferb," and the animated show\'s creators, Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh, are fans of Lindelof.
According to Lindelof, the episode will have all the things "Lost" fans miss: mystery, a polar bear and Terry O\'Quinn.

And fans of Desmond, the castaway stuck typing in the same numerical sequence every 108 minutes, will appreciate the gag of the hamster in the exercise wheel that powers a black hole. And the hamster is getting tired.
Will all those mysteries be answered? They only have 23 minutes and change, and not six seasons, so here\'s hoping there will be at least a few answers.
