Re: Official Lost Thread

What if Lost was a 1980s point-and-click computer game?

JORGE GARCIA would definitely consider a movie spin-off



Quote:
Of course I'd have to consider it ... We'd have to see what the script is, but getting to shoot in Hawaii again is definitely something I would welcome.
Not really big news. It was interesting what he said about the plot of the series, though.

Quote:
We did [try to figure it out] at the beginning, but then it just started getting so complex and in a way, we were too inside to be able to see big picture-y things, just doing the work of the show. We ended up just letting the audience do that part and seeing what they'd come up with.
I never really found it all that hard to follow.

Re: Official Lost Thread

It wasn't hard to follow, but I remember trying to figure stupid shit out rather than just watching and following the plot. When I go back and rewatch it, it's amazing how many references there are to purgatory in the first season.

I don't remember them being that gratuitous.

"See you in another life brotha" from Desmond, it's his saying, but I believe that it refers to the other life on the island. Although I guess that was in the first episode of Season 2.

Sun's dialogue of "Do you think that we're being punished for what we did before?"

Re: Official Lost Thread

I figured those were references to reincarnation. Where did anyone mention purgatory?

No one mentions purgatory specifically, but there are mentions to the island being some sort of afterlife, not directly but you can make the connection.

I remember thinking the island was a dream of Vincent or Hurley.

EDIT: bleh, I need to watch the last season again.

Re: Official Lost Thread

Who'd have been Lost's leader if they'd killed Jack in the pilot?

Quote:
At the center of the pilot would be two characters: Jack Shephard, a doctor who quickly falls into a leadership role among the castaways; and Kate Austen, a young woman whose fiancé had been in the back of the plane when the fuselage split in two, and who had no idea if he was alive or dead. In the vein of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (or even the pilot of Oz), they planned to pull the rug out from under the audience by killing Jack midway through the first episode, forcing Kate to take charge. After this sudden demise, viewers would realize no one was safe. Lindelof says Steve McPherson, then the head of the ABC studio, made a convincing counter-argument that it would teach viewers not to trust the show, and the writers ultimately agreed with him.
I think they made a good choice keeping him alive. He was the heart and soul of that show for a couple seasons.

Quote:
Lindelof, Abrams, and then Cuse only knew a few broad strokes of the mythology in the early stages: that, for instance, the Oceanic passengers had been brought to the island for a reason, as part of some kind of battle between good and evil. (If the show wasn't a success and had to end after only one season, they would have built to a battle between the castaways and the monster.)
That's pretty much what I thought was going to happen when I first started watching.

Re: Official Lost Thread

Michael Keaton was supposed to be Jack on Lost

Quote:
"He told me what Lost was and I thought it was a really intriguing idea. I said, 'I'll seriously consider it, send me the script. He said, 'No, we're keeping the guy alive,' and I said, 'Oh, ok, well I can't do that.'

I wouldn't do it if the guy was going to be in the show every week. An hour show every week... I've got stuff to do, I've got a life to lead. When would I fish?”

Re: Official Lost Thread

I keep meaning to go back and finish it. I got to somewhere around the middle of season 3 I think but then stopped because it was just getting really weird and kind of a pain to follow. Not sure why I want to finish the rest considering all I've heard is that the ending was horrible.

Re: Lost is one of the greatest shows in the history of television.

It definitely got weird but they did enough to keep me hooked to the finish. The end was definitely not what I (or probably anyone) was expecting.

I liked LOST, but after trying to rewatch it last year, I realized that its legacy will take a major hit when compared to its contemporaries.

Re: Official Lost Thread

So I'm going back and watching the series beginning to end. I've finally caught up to where I quit originally(beginning of season 4). Definitely getting weird, though still kind of interesting.

I still don't understand how Charlie was in the bathroom by the cockpit eating heroin when the plane crashed yet somehow ended up on the beach even though the nose of the plane ended up across the island

Without giving it away, do they fully explain everything by the end. Or am I going to be pissed?
