Persons Unknown Theory – Episode 4

Posted by LOTGK on July 1, 2010

Late last night
I heard my screen door slam
And a big yellow taxi
Took away my old man
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got
Till it’s gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot

Episode four, how shall I start thee? Well, I know the update is a few days late and a dollar short, but several things were revealed in episode four.

One: There is at least one mole amongst the captives.
Two: Tori, the hot blonde in the red silky cut down to there slit up to there dress, wears underwear. (Paris Hilton and Britney Spears should take note)

As much as we want to talk about Tori and her obvious slutty appeal, lets focus on the big reveal. Joe is a mole in the group. After Joe is picked by Janet to leave the confines of the city block in a yellow taxi, they fall onto some bad luck. Namely the taxi breaks down and a black semi truck tries to run them over. In doing so, it obliterates the taxi and the driver. They run away from the truck and happen upon a cottage where they can get out of the cold. (How cozy and convenient)

Who didn’t know that bee’s would be swarming all over the cabin when they awoke in the morning. Joe let out that he was allergic to bee’s and one sting would be fatal. And lo and behold, not one sting from the countless thousands of swarming bee’s. Not one!

Secondly, Tori catches a cab out-of-town. Will it be the last we see of her and her underwear? At this point, I don’t really know, or care. But she is the sex appeal to the show so my bet is she will re-appear.

Finally, at the end of the episode, Joe goes into the Chinese restaurant for some take out food. Several secret codes are exchanged and Joe and the main chef are alone in a back room with Joe talking about not letting any harm to come to Janet. (He bonded with her) The chef asks if he is still in or out. After a brief tense moment, he complies and stays in. So we have at least two moles now. Joe and the Chinese chef.

This episode reminded me of a particular Twilight Zone about 7 random people trapped in a diner from a terrible snow storm. And one of them isn’t who they claim to be.

In my previous updates, I theorized that the show is based on Rod Serling and the Twilight Zone, a 1960′s Science Fiction program. Continuing with my Persons Unknown theory I submit for your approval my next offering titled:
Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up
Original Air Date: 05/26/1961 Season Two, Episode 64

Prologue:
Wintry February night, the present. Order of events: a phone call from a frightened woman notating the arrival of an unidentified flying object, and the check-out you’ve just witnessed with two state troopers verifying the event, but with nothing more enlightening to add beyond evidence of some tracks leading across the highway to a diner. You’ve heard of trying to find a needle in a haystack? Well, stay with us now and you’ll be a part of an investigating team whose mission is not to find that proverbial needle- no, their task is even harder. They’ve got to find a Martian in a diner, and in just a moment, you’ll search with them, because you’ve just landed in the Twilight Zone.

Synopsis:
Two state highway patrol officers are checking on reports that an unidentified flying object crashed in the pond a little ways from the local diner. They follow footprints from the pond to the diner where a small bus load of people are waiting for the road to be cleared so they may continue their journey.

The only patrons of the diner are the bus passengers, but it is noticed that there is one more person in the diner than was on the bus. Suspicion is cast onto each and every traveler as they try to weed out who doesn’t belong. To add more mystery and anxiety, strange things begin to happen. The  lights go on and off by themselves, the telephone rings, and the juke box plays by itself. The cook at the diner tries to keep everyone calm and shortly the call comes through that the road is cleared and the passengers board the bus and leave.

A little while later, the businessman, who was in the diner, returns, and tells the cook that the bridge collapsed and killed everyone aboard except him. A moment later, it is revealed that the business man is an alien, and that he caused the bridge to collapsed to conceal his identity. The twist is when the cook reveals that he too is an alien, from another world.

Epilogue:
Incident on a small island, to be believed or disbelieved. However, if a sour-faced dandy named Ross or a big, good-natured counterman who handles a spatula as if he’d been born with one in his mouth, if either of these two entities walks onto your premises, you’d better hold their hands – all three of them – or check the color of their eyes – all three of them. The gentlemen in question might try to pull you into… the Twilight Zone.

In a nutshell, my theory, all the guests, (Captives) have been coerced into this scenario by threats and by force. If they become unwilling to cooperate, their loved ones will be harmed. Everyone has something to lose so they accept their lot in life in hopes of surviving to be let free and rejoin their lives.

Caveat: If anyone reveals or leaks any information that will taint the scenario, they will be quickly eliminated and removed from the area.

We know Joe and the chef are moles. It is only a matter of time before all the others will be revealed to be moles as well.

Persons Unknown Theory – Episode Three

Posted by LOTGK on June 22, 2010

Tonight on NBC’s Persons Unknown, the captive 7 attempt to free themselves by digging a tunnel under the sonic force field fence. They failed. You could see that tempers and nerves were frazzled with the captives.

The captive 7 received a gift, or a shipment, a large crate dropped by helicopter. Inside were 7 canisters. Four of them were empty. Three of them contained gas masks. The premise, three would be safe, four would be in peril. Of course arguments are sparked on who deserved to wear them when a gas attack was implemented.

The C7, (Captive 7) rummage through the town in hopes of finding alternate protection from a gas attack. Surgical masks and rain coats were not going to get it done. As Bill is searching, he looks in the window of one store front and sees an old TV, it begins to play, and shows a scene of Charlie smothering his sick wife with a pillow. Later on, Bill confronts Charlie about what he saw. You can guess what will happen in later episodes. (Charlie will kill Bill)

Charlie and Janet get trapped in a room as sirens go off signaling some sort of attack. A gas attack. Gas spills through cracks in the wall and quickly fill the room. Charlie puts on his mask but panics, he cannot breathe. Janet pounds on the door to get free. Charlie loses it. In a minute, they escape to the street where there is no gas.

Paranoia sets in for the C7. The question again arises, What if one of them is among us? Who can you really trust? What do they really know about each other? The C7 begin to bicker with each on who is worthy of the gas mask, and then quickly turn against each other.

Of course another gas attack occurs while the C7 are in the hotel lobby. Three put on the gas masks quickly while the others begin choking wearing surgical masks. Bill goes crazy and rips the mask off Charlie. Several skirmishes break out as each struggles to survive. But something is terribly wrong. The gas masks introduce a green gas inside the masks choking and poisoning the wearers. The masks are attached and they cannot get them off. Janet assists and helps get all three masks off just in time.

In this episode, we see a loudmouth instigator, (Bill) who fuels the fire of paranoia. The C7 point fingers at each other, all suspect each other as being one of the watchers, and violence ensued.

Sound like anything you’ve seen on television before? It was to me.
In my previous updates, I theorized that the show is based on Rod Serling and the Twilight Zone, a 1960′s Science Fiction program. Continuing with my Persons Unknown theory I submit for your approval my next offering titled:

The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street
Original Air Date: 03/04/1960 season 1, episode 22

Destination – Quite Unknown

The Prologue:
Maple Street, USA. Late Summer. A tree-lined little world of front porch gliders, barbecues, the laughter of children, and the bell of an ice cream vendor. At the sound of the roar and a flash of light, it will be precisely 6:43 PM on Maple Street.

This is Maple Street on a late Saturday afternoon. Maple Street, in the last calm and reflective moments…before the monsters came.

Synopsis:
The episode begins as a typical Summer day. Kids playing, grown ups gathering. Then a dark shadow crawls across the sky and a flash of light and a loud noise is heard before everything goes dark. A complete power outage has occurred including the residents cars. The adults get together to discuss what happened and what they plan on doing about it. Pete Van Horn volunteers to investigate to see if the power outage is city-wide or just the neighborhood.

Just after Pete leaves a young boy claims he knows what is happening. He shows the adults one of his comic books with a story about aliens coming down, assuming human appearance, and living in the neighborhood for a while – while they plan their attack.

At first the adults don’t believe the story until one of the neighbor’s lights go on in his house. Then someone else’s car starts for no reason. As things are going on and off randomly the people start to accuse each other of being the aliens. The fear and hostility of the neighborhood grows. When Pete Van Horn comes back one of the neighbors shoots him because he thought he was an alien.

As a full-scale riot breaks out, the camera pans outward and upward revealing two aliens sitting atop a hill overlooking Maple Street. They comment on how all they need to do is switch on and off a few lights and the people of Earth will destroy themselves.

Epilogue:
The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices. To be found only in the minds of men. For the record, prejudices can kill, and suspicion can destroy, and the frightened, thoughtless search for a scapegoat has a fallout all of its own: for the children, and the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is that these things can not be confined to the Twilight Zone.

But wait a minute folks. I promised you a bombshell that will solidify my theory. Submitted for your approval. On 03/23/1962, during season three, episode 92, The Twilight Zone aired an episode titled:
Person Or Persons Unknown What is the name of NBC’s Summer thriller?

Prologue:
Cameo of a man who has just lost his most valuable possession. He doesn’t know about the loss yet. In fact, he doesn’t even know about the possession because like most people, David Gurney has never really thought about the matter of his identity. But he’s going to be thinking a great deal about it from now on because that is what he’s lost. And his search for it is going to take him into the darkest corners of the Twilight Zone.

Synopsis:
Mister David Gurney wakes up to find that nobody knows him. It appears that his identity has been erased. He becomes angry and is placed into an insane asylum. The doctor there explains to him that David Gureney doesn’t exist, but David feels that someone is out to get him. He escapes and runs. He finds a picture of him and his wife together, and attempts to offer it up as evidence that he does exist. However, the police see a different version of the picture, of David, alone. In a fit of rage, he throws himself onto the ground.

He wakes up in his own bed. He believes that last night’s heavy drinking was the cause of this nightmare. His wife rolls out of bed and heads for the bathroom. When she comes out of the bathroom, he is shocked to discover his wife doesn’t appear to be his wife, she looks completely different, even though her mannerisms and voice are exactly the same.

Epilogue:
A case of mistaken identity or a nightmare turned inside out? A simple loss of memory or the end of the world? David Gurney may never find the answer but you can be sure he’s looking for it in the Twilight Zone.

I told you so…..

Persons Unknown Theory – Episode Two

Posted by LOTGK on June 17, 2010

NBC Persons Unknown. In my previous update, I theorized that the show is based on Rod Serling and the Twilight Zone, a 1960’s Science Fiction program. Continuing with my Persons Unknown theory I submit for your approval my next offering:

Stopover In A Quiet Town

Original Airdate: 04/24/1964 Season 5, Episode 150

Monologue:
Bob and Millie Frasier: average young New Yorkers who had attended a party in the country last night, and on the way home, took a detour. Most of us, on waking in the morning, know exactly where we are; the rooster or the alarm clock brings us out of sleep into the familiar sights, sounds, aromas of home and the comfort of a routine day ahead. Not so with our young friends. This will be a day like none they’ve ever spent, and they’ll spend it in the Twilight Zone.

Synopsis:
A married couple wake up in a strange house. They only remember that they both drank too much at a party the night before. On the way home, a large shadow had appeared over their car and followed them. As they explore the house, they find its fake, cabinets glued, the appliances mere props, sort of like a doll house. All of a sudden they hear a child’s laugh. They go to explore and find the town is all fake as well, right down to the trees on the lawn. They are the only people in town.

The couple become nervous and begin questioning where they are and think that perhaps they are in Hell having died in a car crash the night before. Just then they hear a train whistle and rush to the train station thinking they finally found a way out of the town. Smiling, they board the train and are relieved when the train starts moving and heading out-of-town. After a few minutes the train comes to a stop and they realize it went in a circle and they are back where they started.

Rejected, they leave the train and head back into town and are pursued by the large shadow that followed them into town and again they hear the child laugh. Its revealed that the shadow is a giant alien child who abducted the couple from Earth to be pets.

Epilogue:
The moral of what you’ve just seen is clear: if you drink, don’t drive. And if your wife has had a couple, she shouldn’t drive, either. You might both just wake up with a whale of a headache, in a deserted village, in the Twilight Zone.

Do you see the similarities here? Woke up in the hotel bed, couldn’t remember how they got there. The hotel and entire town was empty. They had the eerie feeling that they were being watched. And here is the kicker folks.

In Persons Unknown, they hot wired the van and they all drove out of town. As they got past the barrier, they all showed a sigh of relief, as though they had escaped. In a moment, a bright white light, and then the van drove right back into town, exactly where they started from. They got out dejected.

In the Twilight Zone, Bob and Millie here the train whistle and run to the station. They board the train and it steams off out of town. Bob and Millie are relieved, semi joking about the nightmare they had just been in. A few minutes later, the train pulls back into the station. Exactly where they had boarded. They were back in town.

Cue the Twilight Zone logo and ending credit music.

Persons Unknown – NBC – Pilot Episode

Posted by LOTGK on June 16, 2010

Persons Unknown. The new NBC Summer drama series. A Lost replacement?

I was still feeling jaded by the ending to ABC’s Lost finale several weeks ago when a friend of mine suggested perhaps getting a new hobby would help. (I told him nicely to Fuck Off!) He persisted and offered another tidbit of knowledge, the new drama series on NBC, Persons Unknown. (Insert eerie music here) I reluctantly took his advice and tuned in last Monday night for the Persons Unknown pilot episode. What did I see…..

Seven people from various walks of life mysteriously awaken in an abandoned hotel room. The camera zooming in on Janet’s eye while she lies groggily on the hotel bed. (Just like the camera opening with Jack’s eye on the island.) One man, Joe, who knows that a key to the door is hidden in the desk drawer bible.

I also notice that the seven people are:
Janet, a mother (With a secret)
Joe, who knows things (With a secret)
Charley, Ferris Buehlers buddy (With a secret)
Graham, soldier (With a secret)
Moira, quirky counselor (With a secret)
Toni, sexy bad girl blonde (With a secret)
Bill, hot headed businessman (With a secret)

Seven people from different walks of life thrown together having to rely on each other to survive. And who can you trust, perhaps one of the seven is one of them, (An Other) who is watching.

That’s right viewers, it reminded me a lot like Lost. (Just with lower caliber actors, writing, and location sets) It also reminded me of another popular series, the Twilight Zone.

Deja Vu: (The feeling a person experiences that they have seen, experienced, or have been someplace before even when they are sure that is not really true.)

To be blatantly honest, I groaned five minutes into the pilot, seeing the abandoned hotel, with only seven people, completely furnished stores, shops, and restaurant housed on a secluded more than likely guarded city block. Realizing that I was walking down the same path I did six years ago. (And we all know how that ended!) However, I had already formulated my theory, and began planning my outline to prove my theory. Then I remembered what I said all those years ago. “It’s already been done!” Hollywood doesn’t have any new idea’s. Just remodified old ones.

So here goes. Persons Unknown was a direct rip-off of a Twilight Zone episode created by Rod Serling that aired in the late 1950’s through the early 1960’s. The specific episode ripped off is titled,

Five Characters In Search Of An Exit.
Originally aired 12/22/1961 (Season 3) (Episode 79)

Prologue:
Clown. Hobo. Ballet Dancer. Bagpiper. And an Army Major. A collection of question marks. Five improbable entities stuck together into a pit of darkness. No logic, no reason, no explanation. Just a prolonged nightmare in which fear, loneliness, and the unexplainable walk hand in hand through the shadows. In a moment, we’ll start collecting clues as to the whys, the whats, and the wheres. We will not end the nightmare, we’ll only explain it, because this is the Twilight Zone.

Synopsis:
The Major awakens. He does not know exactly who he is or how he got to this place. And what kind of place it is? He is in the bottom of a featureless steel cylinder whose open end is many, many feet above. It’s a strange kind of prison.

But the Major is not alone. He first encounters a Clown… a sardonic, sarcastic joker who also has no idea what his real name is. Also present in the Cylinder are the Hobo, the Ballerina, and the Bagpipe Player. They have all been here for a long time but no one knows how long. There are many theories as to the why and where they are, but none are for sure. The ballet dancer thinks they all might be on a spaceship hurtling through space. The Major chimes in that perhaps they are all in hell.

And then there is the ear-shattering peal of a ringing bell that sounds at odd intervals. The Major is determined to escape the cylinder and learn the secret of where they are. The others have long ago given up hope but the Major’s fierce spirit energizes them. They concoct a plan where they will stand atop each other’s shoulders and use a rope made of fabric to throw a grappling hook over the edge of the cylinder.

After several heart-breaking failures, the Major maneuvers himself to the edge of the cylinder. He sees something! Something he cannot believe! He prepares to tell his fellow prisoners, but the giant roaring of the bells come again… and he loses his balance and falls outside the cylinder into the snow below. Here comes the Twilight Zone twist: They characters are dolls left in a Christmas charity drive donation barrel. A child picks up the major and puts him back into the barrel seeing that the doll has fallen out.

Epilogue:
Just a barrel, a dark depository where are kept the counterfeit, make-believe pieces of plaster and cloth, wrought in the distorted image of human life. But this added, hopeful note: perhaps they are unloved only for the moment. In the arms of children there can be nothing but love. A clown, a tramp, a bagpipe player, a ballet dancer and a major. Tonight’s cast of players on the odd stage known as the Twilight Zone.

Cue the Twilight Zone logo and ending credits music.

See what I mean when I said Hollywood just recycles old shows. NBC merely added two more characters to the mix and several subtle changes. Instead of the barrel, it’s a secluded abandoned city block.

Anyway, here’s my theory. NBC is ripping off the Twilight Zone. My next update will add to that theory.

Lost Update Twilight Zone: Where Is Everyone

Posted by LOTGK on December 10, 2009

twilight zone lost

Countdown To February - The Final Season

It has been a little while since my last Lost update and as we patiently wait for the start of season six, the final season of Lost to begin February second, 2010. As promised earlier, 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.

Some Background Before we Proceed:
The Twilight Zone was a classic science fiction television series created by Rod Serling that aired from 1959 to 1964. Each episode intertwined the supernatural with topical moral events in today’s society ending with a twist convoluting the outcome. I argue that the same can be said about ABC Lost. The castaways are more than just stranded on an island. There are mysterious forces at work of powers unknown. And just like the Twilight Zone, a twist is inserted in the story convoluting the outcome.

The Twilight Zone had a standard format. Each episode began with a prologue, usually with the host, Rod Serling doing the voice over introducing the characters and setting. At the end of the show, Serling would offer up a final narration of what the viewer just witnessed.

Tonight’s offering is: Season 1 Episode 1 Where Is Everybody

I think once you see the similarities of both programs, you will quickly realize that Lost is a modern day Twilight Zone.

Monologue:
The place is here, the time is now, and the journey into the shadows that we’re about to watch could be our journey.

Plot:
Mike Ferris wakes and finds himself in a strange town all alone. He is dressed in an air force uniform but doesn’t remember how he got there. As he walks through town, he seems to have just missed finding people as he sees water dripping from faucets, stoves burning, food cooking, tea boiling, cigarettes in ashtrays but no living sole in sight. While in the street, he clicks the traffic walk sign which brings him back to reality. Mr. Ferris was in an experiment for the space agency, testing his ability to cope with being alone in the void of space.

Epilogue:
Up there, up there in the vastness of space, in the void that is sky, up there is an enemy known as isolation. It sits there in the stars waiting, waiting with the patience of eons, forever waiting… in the Twilight Zone.

Lost Tie In:
Ben Linus is Mr. Ferris. Perhaps Ben is also in an experiment, one to study absolute power and authority and how it affects morality. Similar attire, air force jump suit Mr. Ferris wears and the Dharma institute jump suit Ben wears. The empty town Mr. Ferris sees and the empty village Ben sees. Mr. Ferris in some outlandish experiment dealing with isolation and Ben isolated from the outside world in the middle of some outlandish experiment.

Mr. Ferris then clicks the traffic sign and returns to reality. Perhaps that is what Ben is about to do as well. Click the button and return from scratch. With a new cast and new scenario.
