    Miles' comment about the "secreter" room cracked me up.

    Well, as far as protecting the island is concerned, it's more like die together, live alone. :D

    I think once they were off the island, they were no longer protected. Otherwise they all could have stayed near the bomb, and it wouldn't have gone off. Flocke needed someone to pull the wires once they were away from the island so that the bomb would be activated outside of the island's protection.

    ...and thank you too. :)

    There will be another show someday that gets us engaged again. Might be awhile, but it will come.

    I'm only started the last two cus of the iPad-ease of posting and I still have that stigma of threadkiller.

    You're welcome. But the thanks are owed to you. I read these threads all day long the first two or three days after each episode, and I always look forward to the 'jkeegan' posts. I'll come back several times a day until you finally post. Yeah, a lot of your ideas are stream-of-consciousness wacky, but that's half the fun. And when you're spot on with some observations, you're *really* spot on. Like slap-my-forehead how could I have missed that spot-on.

    This is crazy. I woke up in the middle of the night last night, had a wild dream involving a good friend, a buffet table full of food, a handicapped person I accidentally insulted (in the dream, not IRL) and Jeff Fahey, who still looked like Lapidus. (Prolly a result of too much blotter 35 years ago, but that's another story.) IAC... as I lay in bed going WTF was THAT about, I started thinking about the last LOST thread, and how I really hoped someone "good" would start it, rather than some thread crapper ("uggh, I waited six years for that?"). My thoughts turned to Jeff as one of the more prolific and insightful (and positive) LOST posters.

    So there are two thoughts from all of this:
    1) Jeff, go ahead and start it now. We'll overlook the rules this time.:)
    2) I gotta get a life. :D

    Well said! :up:

    Nope, Top Ten only, didn't say five other words. They will be on Jimmy Kimmel tomorrow night.

    I remember seeing a post that they finished around the beginning of this month.

    You know, it's funny because a lot of the complaints such as these were the exact ones people were saying as it was airing. Only back then, it wasn't message forums, Twitter, & Facebook, it was Usenet. This is why early on I kept saying over and over, give it time, trust them when they say they know what they're doing.

    That said, unfortunately very recently there have been many shows whose producers have said just that and have been wrong (Heroes, Flashforward).

    My favorite retcon was the same thing that Lost did with Penny. An original actress who appeared in one episode wasn't available, replaced her, then had to reshoot scenes from the original so it was the new actress. Heh.

    Thank you, Jeff, it wouldn't have been the same without you. Perhaps we should do a Lost rewatch. ;)

    Yup, I've been on this forum since 2002, and don't think there have been threads as engaging as this one that I've participated in. I have to say that because, of course, there are plenty of shows I don't watch.

    Seriously though, it was either the S2 or S4 finales where the thread was just so out of hand that I had to just sit back because attempting a response was completely useless from the sheer volume of posts.

    Agreed! Speaking of Ana Lucia, as I rewatched last night, two things struck me about her. First, when Hurley asked if she was coming along, Desmond's response was, "She's not ready." Wasn't that Ilana's response to Rom when he said Miles might be a candidate? I also think it implies she'll be ready sometime between that scene and the final hours.

    Second, everyone kept talking about how the lives of people in sideways land are seemingly better, but certainly not Ana Lucia's. She's a totally corrupt cop, helping people escape for a hundred grand. She doesn't even remember the original timeline, she's just in it for cash. She even threatened to kill them all if she wasn't paid!

    I don't recall this (but could have forgotten) - are you saying Penny was originally played by someone else in an episode before Sonya Walger?

    I'm not so sure about that - besides being dead in the island world, she also had some pretty major baggage in the original timeline - I forget the exact details, but I thought she killed someone and was trying to cover it up before she went to Australia...

    Went back to look it up - Ana Lucia got shot while a cop - while she survived, she was pregnant and lost the baby. When she returned to the force, she still had major emotional trauma - and when the guy who shot her was arrested, she denied it was him - she then went and killed him herself, forcing her to turn in her badge. So not exactly a great life in either world!

    That's how I always saw it, too. I thought Ben was just using Sayid for his own purposes.

    Not exactly. They had used an actress in the picture that Desmond had with him when they first started showing Desmond in Season 2. They ended up with Sonya, and went back and reshot the picture, so that it was Sonya in the picture, not the actress/model that appeared in the initial picture with him.

    Yeah, that's pretty common...they don't hire an actor until they actually need one, and just use a fill-in for photos in the meantime. They did that on Heroes with Mohinder's father (the book jacket photo), and on Babylon 5 with Sheridan's wife (in photos, and they may have had a stand-in in a brief flashback---old video message?--before they introduced her character into the story a year or two later).
