Lost Update – Prelude To Season Six – 12/25/2009
It’s Christmas day and instead of dreaming of sugar plums dancing in my head, I’m thinking about season six of ABC Lost. In particularly, how similar Lost is to the 1964 animated Christmas special, Rudolph The Red nosed Reindeer, but more exact, to the Island Of Misfit Toys.
Let me explain…..
Lost takes place on a mysterious island inhabited by outlandish people where everyone on the island seems to be an outsider, one that doesn’t fit in well within society. Misfit Island is a mysterious secluded island home to misfit toys, toys that just don’t seem to fit in to society.
The Lost island is inhabited by a ferocious monster that pops up and terrorizes the inhabitants. They call it the Smoke Monster. There are secrets that certain people know about the monster and are somehow able to control it. Misfit island also has a ferocious monster. They call it The Bumble. And Yukon Cornelius knows that Bumbles bounce and knows how to control it. They ain’t nothing without their choppers.
Guns On Lost
On Lost, there are plenty of guns on the island. Sawyer has a suitcase of guns. Kate has guns. Jack has guns. The others have guns. The other others have guns. On Misfit island, one of the toys is a gun. A significance that a gun played a prominent character on Misfit island.
Boat That Don't Float
On the Lost island, there was a freighter that brought the evil others to the island. The boat sank. Also, John Locke sunk the submarine stationed on the island. Desmond’s boat ran aground on the island. All the boats seem to sink on the Lost island. Misfit island also has a boat, and guess what, it doesn’t float either. Coincidence? I think not!
On Lost, the central point was the camp the castaways gathered around. From the pilot episode when the castaways were around the camp fire and the smoke monster made it’s first appearance, to the others cabins community. Misfit island also had a camp fire site that was the focal point.
Moving on, the Lost island has a mysterious powerful entity that runs the lives of the castaways and the others. People call him Jacob, who lives in the old Egyptian style ruins. on Misfit island, the broken toys are governed by King Moonraiser, a mysterious flying lion that lives in a castle that looks very similar to an Egyptian palace.
This is King Moonraiser and the throne he sits on governing over all the misfit toys. He goes out searching the world every night and brings back toys that have been abandoned and not loved anymore. On Lost, Jacob has also visited people and apparently brought them back to the island. All the people on the island seem to be broken and unloved.
Dr. Jack Sheppard
Meet Herbie, misfit, dentist. He moonlights making toys in Christmas town. The head elf is always on his case telling him how inadequate he is and that he is not up to standard with all the other elves. On Lost, Herbie is Jack Sheppard. The surgeon is in his fathers domineering shadow. Somehow Jack doesn’t fit in and wants to start fresh.
Although he doesn’t look anything like Christian Sheppard, the head elf of Christmas town is a lot like him. One can only speculate if the head elf liked to tip a few back during work hours, but we do know he had a change of heart towards Herbie and even opened up to him, just like Christian did with Jack.
Sawyer - James
On Lost Sawyer is the bad boy and the comic relief of the show. Everyone calls him Sawyer but his real name is James. On Misfit island, Charlie, the “Charlie In The Box” was mistaken for a jack In the Box. Just his mere physical appearance makes him the comic relief.
On Lost, Kate is a woman being brought back to justice in handcuffs. She alienated herself from everyone in her life. No one loved her anymore. Misfit island has Dollie, who looks a lot like Kate, and all she wants to be is loved again.
On lost, Hurley, an over weight luckiest unluckiest person on the planet just wanted to get away and have a simple existence. I’m just saying that the pink elephant reminds me of Hurley. A lot!
Misfit island has Yukon Cornelius, prospector, miner, authority figure, and controller of the Bumble. No one knows how he go there but he seems to know the lay of the land. On Lost, John Locke knows how to control the smoke monster, knows the way of the Lost island, and is an authority figure on the island.
Lost Season Six
So there it is. ABC Lost is about a group of misfits stranded on a deserted island where supernatural things occur. Each character just wants to be loved again and have a normal life. Misfit island is a place inhabited by broken unloved toys governed by a supernatural flying lion. all the toys want is to get off the island and be loved again.
Merry Christmas Lost Fans.
