Flash Back

Has anyone else noticed…

July 28th, 2009 - No Comments

Has anyone else noticed the similarities between the “LOST - The Final Season” poster (still searching for a decent copy) and the cover of The Beatles’ album Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band? For your reference, the front, and the back. Ok, ok so its a stretch, but hear me out.

Comparing the poster and the font cover of the album, you have the living characters surrounded by numerous deceased characters in the poster, and the Beatles surrounded by numerous deceased personalities. But when you look at the back cover of the album, you’ll see that Paul McCartney is facing away from you, just like Locke/Fake-Locke is in the poster. The image of Paul on the Beatles album fueled the conspiracy that he was in fact dead, despite that not really being the case (as far as we know…), so is the backward facing Locke image trying to tell us something similar… I’ll let you decide.

Extra hour of LOST for Season 6

July 3rd, 2009 - No Comments

Originally planned at 16 hours when the deal for season 4, 5 and 6 was announced, it was then upped to 17 to make up for one of the episodes we missed out on because of the writers strike, and now we’ve got a whole 18 hours of LOST for the final season. However, its still only really 16 episodes, just that BOTH the premiere and the finale will double episodes. Plus its only a couple of weeks until Comic Con, what surprises do they have in store for us there…

Comic-Con isn’t Comic-Canon

May 16th, 2009 - No Comments

In their final podcast for the year Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse cleared up the “issues” surrounding the Dharma video that was shown at last years Comic-Con featuring Pierre Chang. They confirmed that it was definitely Faraday behind the camera, and that the original plan had for it to tie in with the ARG (which got canceled due to the friggin’ global financial crisis), and that they’d originally planned for Faraday’s Dharma storyline to be told differently. He was going to remain on the island trying to convince Chang about what was going to happen in the future, but instead his storyline ended up with him leaving the island and working at Dharma HQ until his return 3 years later. They said there was always a chance that the Comic-Con material wouldn’t match up entirely with the true canon of the show, due to the material being planned/written long before work on season 5 began.

So which incident was the incident?

Was thinking about this on the bus into work this morning, which incident was “the” incident. Was it the drill hitting the pocket of energy causing all metallic objects to get sucked down the shaft? Or was is it Juliet setting off the bomb with a rock?

Season 5, Episode 14

Episode 100 approaches

April 8th, 2009 - No Comments

Season 5, Episode 14 will be the 100th hour of Lost goodness, the episodes title is “The Variable” which sounds great given how mind bending “The Constant” was. Question is, who or what is “the variable”. Could we finally see the return of Des and/or Dan (the key players from “The Constant”) I really hope so. They’re both still listed as full cast members as far as I can tell so they must be going to reappear sometime soon hopefully.

Hurley explains Lost in one sentence

January 29th, 2009 - No Comments

“Ok. We did crash. We were on this crazy island and we waited for rescue but there wasn’t any rescue and then there was this smoke monster and there were other people on the island, we call them ‘The Others’, and they started attacking us, and we found some hatches and there was a button we had to push every 108 minutes or… well I was never really clear on that, but ‘The Others’ didn’t have anything to do with the hatches, that was the Dharma Initiative, they were all dead, ‘The Others’ killed them and now and now they’re trying to kill us, and then we teamed up with ‘The Others’ because some worse people were coming on a freighter, Desmond’s girlfriend’s father sent them to kill us, so we stole their helicopter and we flew it to their freighter, but it blew up and we couldn’t go back to the island because it disappeared so then we crashed in the ocean and we floated there for a while till a boat came and picked us up and by then there were six of us, that part was true.”

That’s how Hurley explained it to his Mother… and she believed him.

Season 5 Episode 7

So, why is s5e06 called “316”?

December 10th, 2008 - No Comments

I’ve got one theory. There were 324 people on Flight 815, according to the Oceanic 6 there were only 8 survivors. 324-8 = 316, or the number of bodies that would need to be on the plane that was “found” in the trench. However you would imagine that Widmore would have put 324 bodies in the plane because he didn’t expect/want any of the survivors to get off the island. Is that what 316 refers to? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Dharma Initiative Volunteer Assessment

November 19th, 2008 - No Comments

So despite saying that the ARG would continue on December 19, it appears to have started up again a month early. The latest email says that individual dossiers for each participant can now be downloaded from the “Dharma wants you” website. The ‘dossier’ is just a two page pdf, first page is a certificate saying you’ve completed the program, and the second page is your results from the tests (I actually did much better in some than I thought). In the email Hans Van Eeghen also announces that due to the world financial crisis all the higher level Dharma representatives have “gone missing”, causing them to “abandon their ambitious plans”. As a result they’ve “sold the Dharma Initiative to the television show LOST” (I’m sorry, but thats just lame…). He goes on to say that exec producers Lindelof and Cuse will be in contact with their future plans for the Dharma Initiative… Maybe they’ll tell us why this years ARG sucked so hard.

Don’t open it

November 9th, 2008 - No Comments

Walt goes to tell Locke that it wasn’t him who poisoned Michael. As Locke is reassuring Walt, he grabs Walt’s arm and Walt freaks out a bit and pulls away. He says “don’t open it, don’t open it Mr Locke, don’t open that thing”. But Walt doesn’t even know about the hatch.

How do we open it?

November 9th, 2008 - No Comments

Surprisingly when Locke first shows the hatch to Jack, Jack’s response is “how do we open it?”. It’s not everyday that Locke and Jack agree on something like that.
