If I could turn back time
If I could find a way
I’d take back those words that hurt you and you’d stay
I don’t know why I did the things I did
I don’t know why I said the things I said
Pride’s like a knife it can cut deep inside
Words are like weapons they wound sometimes.
I didn’t really mean to hurt you
I didn’t wanna see you go I know I made you cry, but baby
Just When You Thought Lost Updates Were Over For The Season
Perhaps the directors of ABC’s hit television series Lost did turn back time. Stay with me here Lost fans. To understand this update, we have to return to the very beginning of Lost. On September 23rd, 2004, after watching the Lost pilot, I came up with my theory of what I believed was happening on the island.
Interestingly, in the update, I mentioned an old 1969 obscure television series created by Rod Serling, (Famous for his popular sci-fi series Twilight Zone). This new series was dubbed, The New People.
The premise of this series was….A group of young American college students plane crash lands on a deserted island. All of the adults are killed in the crash leaving the students to fend for themselves. The students are a diverse bunch, from every walk of life and every field of study. The New People find out that the island they are on is called Bomano island and was targeted as a nuclear bomb test island. It came complete with buildings, furniture, streets, lights, and even mannequins placed at strategic places on the island. And oh yea, all the food you can eat. Enough to sustain the new people for many years. The New People decide to form their own government in hopes of righting what was wrong in the real world. The unknown question was whether the United States would ever continue its tests and detonate a nuclear bomb on the island.
Anyone see any similarities to Lost? Plane crash, some died, some lived. A diverse blend of people, each with something to offer and to hide. A monster, for Lost, an invisible one, for the New People, a nuclear bomb test that could be initiated at any time. Hidden living quarters. For Lost, the hatch, the pearl, and several other hatches. For the New People, a complete town filled with everything needed to survive, including food. Both shows also touched on control, as in, who was running the island. Both had trouble with alpha males personalities trying to control the groups.
One thing not in common. Lost is heading into season three as one of the most popular captivating series on network TV. The New People was canceled midway through its second season. Perhaps they needed to find a secret hatch…….
