My New Theory

If you've seen this elsewhere, I did not read it anywhere else or try to look it up anywhere else.  I am finally finishing season 1 tonight (I posted about rewatching it a couple of times).  So here's my new theory:  we know people have been hanging out on this mysterious island for a long time with the Black Rock and the 4-toed statue.  I think people have been inhabiting this place for 8,000 years.  Why?  Hurley was talking about what is in the hatch and he is kind of day dreaming of a hatch filled with food, electronics and such.  At the end of his talk, he says that there will be twinkies inside for dessert.  Why?  Because they can last for like 8,000 years dude.

I know that's not much to base a theory on, but I know that the writers chose the information we get very wisely, and since it's tied to the numbers, why not.

Here We Go Again LOST Fans

Hollywood actors guild to seek strike - Movies- msnbc.com

Last season was interuptted and ultimately cut short because of the wrtiers' strike. Well look what's on deck this season:

The Screen Actors Guild said Saturday it will ask its members to authorize
a strike after its first contract talks in four months with Hollywood studios
failed despite the help of a federal mediator.

The guild said it
adjourned talks overnight with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television
Producers after two marathon sessions with federal mediator Juan Carlos
Gonzalez.

SAG — representing more than 120,000 actors in movies, television and
other media — said in a statement it would launch a "full-scale education
campaign in support of a strike authorization."

LOST Thanksgiving

For the past couple of years, my mom and I have made a tradition of watching LOST on Thanksgiving while I was home for the holidays. This year, we've watched a couple of movies and some Battlestar Galatica, but it just doesn't seem the same without watching some LOST. I think after BSG, we shall have to watch my favorite episode of LOST so far "The Constant."

Sawyer's Sacrifice

I posted a couple of days ago about rewatching season 1. One thing I noticed that was a striking difference in Sawyer. When he told Kate his reason for wanting to get onto Michael's raft, he said that there was nothing worth staying on the island for.

Yet when the time came in season four as the helicopter was about to go down because it was losing power and was too heavy. Sawyer was willing to jump out for Kate. He could've drown, and he was on the island when it disappeared because of his willingness to stay on the island to give his beloved Kate a chance to get away.

LOST Season 1

I have been rewatching season 1 and only have the exciting season finale left to watch, "The Exodus."  It's interesting to final rewatch season 1 after knowing what happens all the way through to season 4.  I've enjoyed it a lot.

Lost - SCIFIPEDIA

Lost - SCIFIPEDIA

I know this has been around a while, but I had not seen the ScifiPedia before. The section on LOST is a little outdated. And some of their numbers, I am not sure where they are getting them. There have been 85 episodes of LOST so far: Season 1 (24), Season 2 (24), Season 3 (23) and Season 4 (14). This site says that there have been 91 episodes. Maybe they are counting the LOST specials and recap shows.

End of Dharma Wants You


Namaste.
I am pleased to announce that registered recruits can now log in and download your personalized Volunteer Assessment Dossier outlining your full test results as well as your position within the Dharma Initiative. I want to personally congratulate you on behalf of everyone at the Dharma Initiative for your hard work and diligence during our testing
process.


We hope that you are happy with your results. We certainly are. The tests were extremely challenging and the aptitude and excellence displayed far exceeded our expectations.

Now that you are in possession of your results I am sure you are asking the obvious question: what's next?Our plan was that together we would commence a glorious adventure: the revival of the Dharma Initiative using the myriad talents of all our amazing new recruits. We imagined not just fulfilling long abandoned goals but taking the Dharma Initiative to a new level of
greatness as an organization promoting the peaceful social and technological advancement of all humankind.

Then the financial crisis struck. Sadly, our benefactors were not immune to this crisis. In fact, unconfirmed reports suggest that much of the money designated for the work of the new Dharma Initiative was tied up in highly leveraged mortgage derivatives. This, however, cannot be confirmed because, I am sorry to report, the principals representing the benefactors - my employers - have gone missing. Based on bills still coming into our office we believe they
are somewhere in South America.

This stunning reversal of fortune has forced us to abandon our ambitious plans. In fact, absent this funding, the Dharma Initiative was forced to make the only sensible decision we had available: we sold the Dharma Initiative to the television show LOST.

While this might strike some of you as a shock, the reason for this was not simply that they were the only bidder. As the only remaining Dharma Initiative employee who had not fled the country, I felt that at the very least the show would be able to keep the spirit of the Dharma Initiative alive and in the public consciousness until such time as a reversal of the reversal of our
economic fortunes occurs.

It is with a heavy heart that I must bid you farewell. Despite my fervent commitment to the mission of the Dharma Initiative, the realities of a broken marriage, heavy casino debt and some unfounded police charges have required that I change my present circumstances. It is with great excitement that I can inform you of my pending senior sales management job at a large
multi-brand auto dealership in Dubai. I have enjoyed our brief association more than I can ever express, and if you are ever in the Middle East and need a car, please e-mail me for a special "Dharma rate".

In the meantime, you will hear shortly from LOST showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse. They will explain to you their future plans for the Dharma Initiative and how these plans might affect you. Thank you again, personally, for your unflagging commitment and support. I hope our paths will one day cross again. In the meantime may the spirit of the island guide
you.

Namaste.
Hans Van Eeghen

Have You Seen the New Star Trek Trailer?

See the Trailer Now: www.startrekmovie.com/

I saw the new trailer for J. J. Abrams & Damon Lindelof's new Star Trek movie coming May 8, 2009 today, and that it looked pretty cool. It didn't really look like Star Trek, which is good and bad I guess. I'm glad that it's a new story and that it's something different. It has some interesting CGI and I think it's cool that "Skylar" from Heroes is the new Spock.

I'm not sure what to think about the little Kirk or the twenty something Kirk. Both didn't seem to fit the character from the little bit of the trailer that they appeared in.

The Following Press Release from ABC talks about the "You Found Me" Video and then about LOST. One thing I've heard other places as well is that this list of stars does not include Rebecca Mader as Charlotte.

Last July ABC had a press release that talked about their LOST book club. The press release is as follows.

What is Ajira Airways? LOST Season 5 hint?


This interesting image flashes during The Fray's video "You Found Me." Ajira Airways must be the next "Oceanic" for LOST. I'm sure that this will play some role in the upcoming season, since it was hidden in the season 5 music video.

What does this mean? Where is this from? I'm sure we'll learn more later.

Thanks,
Jimmy

Who is Desmond related to? Who been seen in Hawaii? (Spoilers)

Source:  LOST Spoilers

Question: Your Lost spoiler tease inthis week's Ausiello TV is driving menuts. Can you please give us a hint as to the nature of the connection between Fionnula Flanagan's creepy ring seller and "another major character" who is not Desmond? -- Vanessa
Ausiello:
 They're related.   

Question: The lack of Lost scoop is killing me. -- Ahmed
Ausiello:
 Help has arrived! My Lostmole reports that Lance Reddick (a.k.a. corporate recruiter Matthew Abaddon, as well as Fringe's Phillip Broyles) was just spotted in Hawaii shooting what I assume is episode 5.6. Meanwhile, the show is casting the likely recurring role of Hal, a white dude in his 70s who can still fight the establishment and win. Team Darlton is also on the prowl for an actor to play Mike, a thirtysomething scientist who's on the brink of something big. An authentic Czech accent is required. (Of course, when isn't it?)

Charlie Returns, Well Almost

"In what marks his first major TV gig since Lost, Dominic Monaghan has signed on to guest-star on NBC's Chuck as -- stop me if this sounds familiar -- a free-spirited British rock star targeted for death by a shadowy group of evildoers. And the similarities to his Lost alter ego Charlie don't end there. Well, actually, yes, they do. "This is a very, very different kind of character," insists executive producer Josh Schwartz of Monaghan's metalhead, who makes an in-store appearance at Buy More and ends up getting entangled in one of Chuck's spy games. "He's a lunatic in the best sense of the word. And there's no heroin [addiction]." Monaghan's participation is only half the Feb. 2 episode's sell: It also will air partly in 3-D, piggybacking on NBC's 3-D Super Bowl stunt. (The network will broadcast the big game the night before.) Aside from the cool factor of seeing himself in 3-D, what drew Monaghan to the role? Did he have any hesitation about channeling someone who, at least on paper, so closely resembles Charlie? And might his tube return be the precursor to another Lost comeback? Hmmm….Sounds like the set-up to an exclusive Q&A with Dominic Monaghan. Scratch that. Itis the set-up to an exclusive Q&A with Dominic Monaghan."

LOST Returns January 21st with 3-Hour Event!

"We don't know where the Island went -- but now know when we'll be seeing it again. ABC insiders say that the fifth season of the Emmy-nominated cypto-drama will premiere with a two-hour event on Jan. 21, 2009, at 8 p.m. That's a Wednesday, in case you don't know next year's calendar by heart, which means that Lost will be returning to its original day-of-the-week slot. (Last season, it aired on Thursday nights.)
The Lost season five premiere will actually be a three hour event! An hour-long recap special will air at 8 PM, followed by the first two episodes from 9-11 PM. The series will air thereafter at 9 PM on Wednesdays."

LOST Season 1 - Smoke Monster Hint?

I started re-watching LOST a couple of days ago and right now I'm watching "Walkabout."  One of the best episodes in the series in my opinion.  I noticed something that I've never noticed before.  Someone out there has probably mentioned this before, but perhaps not.  


While "Colonial" Locke is at work on the TPS reports at the box factory.  The calculator (adding machine whatever) makes a noise when printing the numbers on the paper that sounds like....
The Smoke Monster.  I thought that was pretty cool, since it was related to numbers and John Locke.
