Lost Update – Hot Rod Lincoln

Posted by LOTGK on September 15, 2008

lost update

Lost Update – Season IV – 09/15/2008

They arrested me and they put me in jail,
They called my pappy to throw my bail,
He said “son you’re gonna drive me to drinkin’
If you don’t stop drivin’ that hot rod Lincoln.

Daniel Dae Kim, who plays Jin on the hit ABC series, Lost, has been charged with a DUI. That does not bode well for him. If you recall, I predicted the demise of not only Ana-Lucia, (Michele Rodriquez) but also of Libbey, (Cynthia Watros) both shot dead and eliminated from the show after receiving DUI arrests. Mr. Eko was also written off after falling into some trouble in real life.

Will Kim share the same fate? Or is the show to far into the story line that eliminating Kim would be a major undertaking?

What say you Lost fans?

Lost In The Twilight Zone Pilot Episode

Posted by LOTGK on September 2, 2008

Prelude To Season V

As promised, this summer we are going to discuss the correlation between Rod Serling’s science fiction television program, The Twilight Zone, (1959-1964) and the current ABC network hit, Lost. I will start with season one of the Twilight Zone comparing episodes with scenario’s that happened on Lost.

I think once you see a few comparisons, you will quickly realize that Lost is a modern day Twilight Zone. BTW, Twilight Zone aired for six seasons and the Lost writers announced that Lost would also run for six seasons.

Let’s begin with the pilot episode of the Twilight Zone, aptly named,

The Time Element.

In the Time Element, a man (Peter Jensen) believes he is traveling back in forth in time. He visits a psychologist and explains that he keeps having the same recurring dream. He travels back in time to 1941, to Honolulu, Hawaii, and he realizes the Japanese are ready to attack Pearl Harbor. Jensen insists they are not dreams, but in fact, traveling back in time. The doctor he is seeing tries to reassure him that time travel is impossible and he is hallucinating.

Jensen tells the doctor that when he is back in time, he bets on the sporting events and always wins. After a few more dreams, he attempts to warn people of the impending Japanese attack but no one listens or cares. He is deemed a crazy man. Jensen’s dream always ends with the Japanese planes flying overhead and him screaming “I told you so!”

The doctor finds the story incredible and while they are talking, Jensen falls asleep. At that moment, the planes fly overhead and shoot inside the doctors office and kills him.

The camera pans out revealing the entire office, and the doctor is alone, no evidence of Jensen ever being there. The doctor winds up at the bar and there on the wall is a picture of Jensen and he finds out that he tended bar there but was killed in the Pearl Harbor attack.

This is the only Twilight Zone episode without the Prologue, Monologue, and epilogue format. (You will see the format in the next update) In fact, this episode was rejected by the TV executives as not their cup of tea. It was aired a year later to the delight of the viewing audience and the Twilight Zone was born.

Lost Tie In:
Desmond is a modern day Peter Jensen, a man traveling back and forth in time. Both men know what was going to happen, but no matter what they did, who they tried to warn, could not stop the events from unfolding.

We also see the twist, famous in the Twilight Zone. Jensen died in the Pearl Harbor attack in the past. As for Desmond, while he was in the past, calls Penny on the telephone and tells her to wait for his call years ahead in the future on a specific day. Christmas Eve.

Lost Update – Living In The Past

Posted by LOTGK on July 25, 2008

Lost Update
Lost Update Season IV 07/25/2008

Happy and I’m smiling,
Walk a mile to drink your water.
You know Id love to love you,
And above you theres no other.
Well go walking out
While others shout of wars disaster.
Oh, we wont give in,
Lets go living in the past.

Once I used to join in
Every boy and girl was my friend.
Now theres revolution, but they don’t know
What they’re fighting.
Let us close out eyes;
Outside their lives go on much faster.
Oh, we wont give in,
Well keep living in the past.

OK, pretty quiet in here, so let me add another theory to the mix.

Welcome to the first installment of the 2008 Summer of Lost theories. Tonight I am offering yet another wrinkle, another theory, that perhaps, ties into my virtual reality theory, but again, may not. As always, you are the judge, jury, and sometimes executioner.

We start the summer haitus by referring to the lyrics written by Jethro Tull, Living In The Past, and realize that perhaps, that is exactly what the castaways are doing.

Please take a second to reread the lyrics above. Let them sink in. Can you pick out a theme in the song? A certain cast member? Scenario? Look closely, for this song is the key to night’s theory.

And what is tonight’s theory….
In a nutshell, Ben Linus, in present time, has seen the world come to an end. Let it be by nuclear war, global warming, American Idol reruns, disease, or other world ending disaster. (Insert your own doomsday thoughts here) However, the group he headed up, the Dharma Initiative, was working on a time machine before the world’s demise. Ben believed, by studying the past, predicted that he could change the course of history by manipulating certain key events, and thusly, the future itself.

This is the story of Ben Linus, time traveler.

What does this mean to the castaways? Simple! All the events we have witnessed on Lost are from the past. That’s right! The past. No present. No future. Only the past.

Onward to proving my theory. From the season four cliffhanger, we know Ben Linus has a time machine that he uses to go back and forth to manipulate key events. But why would Ben want to do this? My explanation follows in detail.

Although Ben has a time machine, it has not yet been perfected. Hence certain flaws, (Richard not aging, Desmond’s flash backs) prevent a pristine reboot to the past.

Ben, seeing the world come to an end, begins his attempt to save the world by traveling back in time to change history. His early attempts fail as history, despite his efforts, tends to repeat itself no matter what variables are added or subtracted to the equation. Ben realizes that he must be more specific and calculate subtle changes in the time line that would create a chain reaction to change the outcome of the future. Ben has devised a new plan, a new hope, to bring civilization back.

This is when we, the viewer, tunes in. The pilot episode. The plane crash. Ben, by studying history, selects key people (The castaways) that when put together, and changed and manipulated on the island, that when they return back to the mainland, will have a significantly different impact on the world and thus, alter the course of history and prevent the world from coming to an end.

We can all agree that the passenger list of Oceanic Flight 815 is very diverse. We can also all agree that each and everyone of the passengers have been altered. Some bad to good. Some good to bad. Some dead.

Ben, through his research, knew Oceanic flight 815 would crash on said given day. He set to task to create the eclectic group of people that needed to be on board that flight. Going back in time, he manipulated each and every passenger to force them on that flight. (Think back of all the incredible coincidences that each passenger had boarding) This also gives credence to Ben being spotted at the airport with several of the passengers and all of them in somewhere connecting with Ben before they crashed on the island.

Once Ben had the passenger list he wanted, all he had to do was wait for the plane to crash. He would then set to task to manipulate and groom each castaway into what was needed to change history. Just some examples are:

Kate needed to stop running and trust.
Sawyer needed to kill Locke’s father.
Claire needed to keep the baby.
Michael needed to unite with his son.
Ana Lucia needed to die.
Libby needed to die.
Ecko needed to die.
Boone and Shannon needed to die.
Locked needed to learn to trust.
Charlie needed to die.
Desmond needed to learn the truth about Penny.
Jack needed to understand about his father.
Hurley needed to realize he wasn’t insane.
Nicky and Paulo needed to die.
Etc…

On the island, through Ben’s intervention, all these events occurred. When each member was perfectly molded, they would be set free and returned to the mainland in hopes of changing the history of the world.

Perhaps the black rock ship was one of Ben’s earlier attempts in changing the future. And the French expedition. And Richard and the commune. Perhaps all failed attempts. Plenty of variables in the mix that could go wrong. Maybe this time though, Ben has it right.

There it is. A new Lost theory. Your thoughts please…..

Lost Update – Iris – Season IV Finale

Posted by LOTGK on May 30, 2008

lost season 4 finale

Lost Update Season IV Finale 05/29/2008

And I’d give up forever to touch you
Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You’re the closest to heaven that I’ll ever be
And I don’t want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Cause sooner or later it’s over
I just don’t want to miss you tonight

And I don’t want the world to see me
Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When every things made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can’t fight the tears that ain’t coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything seems like the movies
Yeah you bleed just to know your alive

And I don’t want the world to see me
Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When every things made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am

Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls

Season IV finale is upon us. When Lost started, I envisioned a three year series of 30 episodes a season. Instead, the executives decided to stretch the series into six season cutting down on episodes per season to 16 for the last three years. More advertising dollars perhaps, but tonight could have been the series finale. Instead, we have two more years to find out that my Lost theory was correct.

Just what is my Lost theory…..
Although it appears the survivors of Oceanic flight 815 are on a tropical island, they are being deceived. There is no island. The survivors are in a virtual reality laboratory. All the castaways are interconnected to one another sharing each others thoughts, memories, and feelings. While in this virtual reality laboratory, a battery of physical and mental experiments are performed on them. And who is behind all this other than the mysterious government men? Aliens of course.

I’ll see you in another life brother!

Before we get to my theory, a quick recap.

* Jeremy Bentham is the man in the casket. Also known as John Locke.

* Richard wears eye liner. Don’t know what to make of that. But he is a ruthless mofo as he shoots Keamy.

* Kate and Sayid makes a deal to get off the island if they help rescue Ben.

* Ben says the chopper is yours….. Ben always lies the bastard. He knows the chopper is going down.

* Did I mention Keamy, the mercenary soldier is shot multiple times and left for dead. (Big mistake)

* Walt visits Hurley in the hospital.

* Walt is grown up. Has to be a flash forward, at least three years.

* Walt says only jeremy Bentham visited him. Wonders why.

* Walt wants to know why Hurley and the others are lying. Hurley says, We’re lying to protect everyone that didn’t come back.

* Locke tells Jack that he has to lie to protect the island.

* Locke asks Ben how deep the station is. Very deep!

* Locke asks Ben if the Orchid station is the magic box. Ben says no!

* Ben says this place was for experiments. For time and space experiments.

* Locke watches a Dharma movie about the vault, a capsule where objects placed into travel to and from the past and future. No metal can be put in the box. Ben is filling the vault with metal.

* Keamy returns, He’s pissed.

* Ben asks for his weapon back. Keamy’s body armor saved him from the bullets. Reveals a dead mans switch, all the people on the freighter die if Keamy dies. Ben kills Keamy anyway, stabs him several times in the throat.

* Locke said you just killed everyone on the freighter. Ben says, so what. It’s not my problem.

* Charlotte, nothing is forever. Was on the island before. Wants to stay. Leaves Daniel.

* Sawyer jumps from the chopper to save the others. Whispers a secret to Kate before he jumps.

* Christian Sheppard appears to Michael and tells him, “You can go now Michael.” Does a good deed and perhaps redemption.

* Sawyer in the water, Jin on the deck, Sayid, Jack, Desmond, Hurley, Sun, Aaron in the chopper, the rest on the island.

* In a flash forward, Sun confronts Widmore, tells him to stop pretending.

* Sawyer is a hell of a swimmer. Somehow loses his shirt. Makes it back to the island. Juliet is there. Watching the burning freighter on the horizon.

* Ben moves the island, bright white light, island vanishes, chopper can’t find the island. Crashes in the ocean.

* Locke looks down upon his people, Richard says welcome home.

* Whoever moves the island cannot come back. Perhaps Widmore once moved the island and has been searching for a way to get back ever since. Changed the rules to perhaps get back.

* In a dream, Claire tells Kate not to bring Aaron back to the island.

* Life raft is spotted, sort of like the ending of season one finale, when Tom abducted Walt. But this time, it’s Penny’s boat. They embrace, unite.

* We find out that Sun blames Jack for Jin’s death. The second person responsible. Her father and Jack. she’s pissed.

* Jack tells the others they have to lie, what Locke told him to do, to protect the rest.

* Jack, Kate, Hurley, Sayid, Sun, and Aaron ready to board the life raft for the designated rescue island.

* Jack and Desmond exchange words. I’ll see you in another life brother. Exactly what they said in their chance meeting in the stadium on the mainland.

* John Locke is in the casket.

* All of you have to go back, including dead Locke.

* Ben says, I have a few idea’s how…..

Season IV is over. Do you feel relieved, saddened, or anxious for season five to start. Keep in mind, that won’t be until February of 2009 which is a long way off. Only 32 more episodes to go.

Tonight’s song lyrics tie in very nicely with season four finale. Read the lyrics again. Better yet, listen to the tune. It’s a good one.

So, Ben can travel back and forth in time. He has a goddamn time machine hidden down in the Orchid. Perhaps that is why he knows what is going to happen. Because he has lived it already. Perhaps he can rewind, much like the Dharma tape Locke was watching tonight, and rewind segments of history, and manipulate the outcome. Such as, not allowing Keamy to execute his daughter.

Or, perhaps Ben is aware of the virtual reality scenario he is in, and can manipulate the dream state and force his own outcomes for his own benefit. Perhaps he is the one controlling the virtual reality. He does always seem to be in command. He always has a plan. He always wins.

Let’s stay with the “Always wins” theme. The happy ending to an epic story. All the castaways have been endured immense agony, pain, and sorrow but in the end, redemption and a happy ending. (No, not the hooker kind of happy ending) As I stated many times, the experiment on humanity continues and now, the next phase. Allowing the castaways to win, get off the island all through the vessel of virtual reality. Lets examine some castaways shall we….

Sayid has been searching for Nadia for 7 years, and he finds her and lives happily ever after. For Sayid, it is a perfect ending.

Desmond, in search for his love Penny, is rescued by her. From an island that doesn’t exist. Now thats finding a needle in the haystack. Another perfect happy ending.

For Sun, although you may not think, has a happy ending. Remember, she wanted to get away from her husband Jin, and now, she is, and more, she bought a controlling interest in her fathers company and has become a very powerful woman. Revenge and power, and for Sun, a happy ending.

Sawyer, well, he sacrifices his ticket home and jumps out of the chopper. BTW, it looked to be at least 80 feet, and we all know by watching the movie, The Gaurdian, you don’t survive a fall from that distance. But Sawyer does, and surfaces and begins a 12 mile swim back to the island. And what does he find? You bet! A buxom blond, (Juliet) drinking on the beach. that is one hell of an ending for Sawyer.

What about Locke? He’s dead, in the casket. Not a perfect ending for him right? Well, I would think that Locke, now the leader of the Others, like Ben, has to make the ultimate sacrifice to save his people and the island. In the future, three years or so, Locke dies for his people and the island. And for Locke, the island is his soul, and will always be a part of it. Perhaps becoming the new Jacob.

Michael, hell he’s blown up on the boat, but he has saved the people he once betrayed, and has found the redemption he was searching for.

Hurley is safe and happy in the hospital, where he wants to be, talking to his dead friends. He even beats Mr. Ecko in a game of chess. A millionaire living a reclusive life, a happy ending for Hurley.

Kate, back on the mainland, with a son, and from the car she drove, was doing pretty darn fine. From the look of that scene, she had gotten what she wanted.

Jack, well, he is destitute, a drunk, lost his wife, his practice, Kate, and close to suicide. Not a good ending for him at all. Until, he does what he is supposed to do, lead the people back to the island, and take over as the new leader of the Others. New Jack City.

So what does season V have in store for the Lost castaways? Glad you asked. I am predicting that they all wind up back on the island, (I know, no earth shaking prediction there) but will be separated in time. some will arrive in the future, some in the past, and others, the present, as we know it. The whispers are the ghosts of the past, present, and future intersecting in the virtual reality world of Lost.

Season IV is now history, but not all is Lost. Throughout the long off season, I will be updating periodically on Lost and the strong connections it has to the Twilight Zone, a popular science fiction television program that aired in the 50’s and early 60’s. Each episode will be broken down and compared to Lost, the castaways, and situations.

Until we meet again, Get Lost!!!

Lost Update – Old Man In The Cave

Posted by LOTGK on May 22, 2008

Lost Update Season IV 05/22/2008

As promised, the Grassy Knoll Institute is ready to explain the mysterious Jacob, the old man that lives in the cabin. The same man that Ben takes orders from. The same old man that seems to have powers beyond our comprehension.

The answer to this mysterious entity can only be found in the Twilight Zone. For those not familiar with the Twilight Zone, it was a science fiction television program created by Rod Serling that aired in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s with each episode exploring outlandish events and ending with a twist. Tonight’s Lost update will explore the 1963 Twilight Zone episode titled, The Old Man In The Cave. You will quickly see the relevance and similarities between Lost and the Zone.

As usual, we will start with the Prologue. (How each Twilight Zone episode began)

Prologue:

You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension – a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into the Twilight Zone.

Next came the opening Monologue by Serling himself.

Opening Monologue:

What you’re looking at is a legacy that man left to himself. A decade previous he pushed his buttons and, a nightmarish moment later, woke up to find that he had set the clock back a thousand years. His engines, his medicines, his science were buried in a mass tomb, covered over by the biggest gravedigger of them all: a bomb. And this is the Earth ten years later, a fragment of what was once a whole, a remnant of what was once a race. The year is 1974, and this is the Twilight Zone.

Story Synopsis:

In a thinly populated town set in 1974, ten years after a nuclear war, survivors of the town discover some canned food and other supplies. As hungry and desolate as they are, they don’t eat the food. Instead they wait for the old man in the cave to tell them if the food is fit to eat or contaminated with radiation.

One time they didn’t listen to the old man and the townsfolk planted crops where he said not to. (Contaminated soil) The harvest turned out to be a bitter one leaving them with little food to survive on. They learned the hard way to wait for an answer from the old man, and from Goldsmith. (The towns leader) Goldsmith was the only man who went to the cave to talk to the old man and waited on his word whether or not to plant or eat.

As usual, Goldsmith took a can of food with him to the cave and returned a short time later. Goldsmith said the old man declared the food unfit to eat and for it to be destroyed immediately. Just as the people were ready to destroy the food, a group of renegade soldiers pulled into town. They started asking questions on who was in charge, did they have any food, water, supplies, gas. When the towns people said they had no food it angered the soldiers for they saw the crates of food that were deemed unfit to eat by the old man in the cave.

The soldiers asked who the old man was, and did anyone ever see him, how they knew he was alive, and tried to make the towns people believe he didn’t exist. That he was made up by Goldsmith so he would always be in control of the town. To prove their point, the soldiers went to the cave and called the old man out. Goldsmith told them that he is the only one that sees and talks to the old man.

The soldiers stormed the cave and instead of finding the old man, they find a computer. Goldsmith was using the computer to analyze the food and soil to see if it was contaminated or not. The towns people got angry, and as a mob, destroyed the computer and decided to eat the food. All the people for the first time in a long time got their fill of food including the soldiers. They all shunned Goldsmith as he was the only one who didn’t partake in the food.

The next morning, all the towns people and soldiers are dead laying in the street and yards, killed by contaminated food they ate the previous night. Goldsmith was the only one left alive.

Epilogue:

Mr. Goldsmith, survivor, an eye witness to man’s imperfection, an observer of the very human trait of greed and a chronicler of the last chapter—the one reading ‘suicide’. Not a prediction of what is to be, just a projection of what could be. This has been the Twilight Zone.

Go ahead, take a breather. I’ll let it all sink in. Let me know when you are ready to continue. (tick, tock, tick tock, all the time I need)

Before we begin comparing the Old Man in the cave and the Old Man in the cabin, lets look at what this Twilight Zone episode was about.

The story is set in a post nuclear war future, the human race almost completely destroying itself. As fate would have it, the survivors finish the job that nuclear war started by a lack of faith, greed, and a dependence on technology that may lead them to ruin one day.

Onward to the comparisons of this Twilight Zone and Lost.

This Twilight Zone episode depicts isolated survivors from a horrific event. Lost begins with a horrific plane crash leaving a small group of survivors stranded on an unknown island.

This Twilight Zone episode has the people relying on Goldsmith, the town leader, for survival, guidance and direction. The Lost castaways also rely on Jack for the same. But when Ben is introduced, he becomes the focal point, the man in charge, with their very lives hanging in the balance.

In the Twilight Zone episode, people found food and wondered if it was good to eat. The Lost castaways also found food in the jungle with Dharma decals all over it and wondered the same, if the food was good to eat.

In the Twilight Zone episode, the townspeople were arguing about what to do, how to proceed. There was a distinct split of opinion between them. So can be said about the Lost castaways. In fact, they split into two groups as some decide to stay on the beach and the rest moved further inland.

In the Twilight Zone episode, only Goldsmith sees and talks to the old man in the cave. On Lost, only Ben sees and talks to Jacob, the old man.

in the Twilight Zone episode, the old man lives in a cave. Is mysterious, intelligent. On Lost, the old man lives in a cabin. Is mysterious, intelligent.

In the Twilight Zone episode, what Goldsmith tells the people is the law, handed down by the old man. No one questions that authority. On Lost, Ben commands the people, handed down by Jacob, the old man in the cabin.

In the Twilight Zone episode, renegade soldiers enter the town with an agenda all their own. On Lost, renegade soldiers land on the island from the freighter with an agenda all their own.

In the Twilight Zone episode, the towns people force Goldsmith to reveal who the old man in the cave is. On Lost, the castaways force Ben to reveal who Jacob, the old man in the cabin, is.

In the Twilight Zone episode, the townspeople revolt against Goldsmith and the old man in the cave. On Lost, the castaways revolt against Ben and Jacob.

In the Twilight Zone episode, all the townspeople died failing to heed the warning by the old man leaving only Goldsmith alive. On Lost, Ben was the only survivor as all the “Others” were killed. Seems to be going in the same direction once again with the new castaways.

For the Twilight Zone episode, the twist of the episode was that the old man was not a man, but a computer used by Goldsmith to analyze soil and food for contamination. The computer, or old man, kept the townspeople alive. On Lost, it has yet to be revealed who Jacob, the old man in the cabin, really is. And, it appears that Jacob is being used by Ben to keep the castaways alive, using Jacob’s knowledge to hide the island, control the smoke monster, and defeat the renegade soldiers.

Twilight Zone episode, a look into the near future and the horrors of man being left to his own vices, and devices. Annihilation of the planet and human race. Goldsmith was attempting to keep humanity alive and rekindle it’s spirit. He failed. On Lost, perhaps Ben is attempting the same. Wide speculation has it that the Hanso corporation and Dharma Initiative are involved in time travel, genetics, and several other medicines strange to a private group and island.

I think this is the part where Rod Serling appears on screen saying, “Submitted for your approval” and explains the evenings offering.
After watching the pilot episode of Lost way back in 2004, I formulated two theories, Virtual reality experimentation which is the main theme of this section or a remake of the Twilight Zone.

For tonight only, staying in theme with the Twilight Zone, Lost is a modern day remake of the Twilight Zone. Each and every week, Lost mirrors a unique Twilight Zone episode sans the Rod Serling narration. Each week, the Lost characters confront their inner most demons, horrific events, twists of fate, and supernatural entities just as the original Twilight Zone episodes did.

One final tidbit. The Twilight Zone was written allowing the audience to be privy to supernatural events unfolding on the screen but at the end, twisted the story offering a logical natural explanation leaving it up to the viewer to decide.

Until next weeks season IV finale, Get Lost!
