    It was a different woman in the original photo, yes.

    Very similar. Shortly after Sheridan was introduced, his sister brought a 5-minute (maybe shorter) video clip of Anna. When they cast Melissa Gilbert, they reshot the 5-minute video with Melissa. In Lost, they reshot the picture of Desmond & Penny with Sonja Walger this time.

    Aww, shucks..

    I'm flattered. But unless a moderator tells me to start it and that they'll lock it, I'll just wait until an hour before the finale starts (per the rules) and post it then. (I agree about wanting it to start out positive. :) ).. I remember back before we had the rule, people would post for hours before an episode even started, and we'd have to read through 5 pages of PRE-episode comments before even getting to the show!

    78 hours, 29 minutes, 5 seconds left...

    I'm starting to wish I had my RepRap Mendel completed (it's close, but won't be done by Sunday), so I could design and print out a solid 3D Dharma logo while the show was still on the air. I'll still do that once the show and my 3D printer are done, but it won't be quite the same. :(

    Could you or Would you start a thread in which we could talk about our memorable moments on Lost? Things that really made us go "YES I love this show!!"

    No reveals for the final episode and yes, spoilers for the last six seasons.

    I'd rather wait four days and do it right!

    Same here. At the beginning of season 2 a friend kept coming to work with all these observations I had missed, so he gave me the link.

    Hurley's podcast is really good this week. Even funnier than usual and lots of tidbits from the script. Most of them have already been mentioned, but they also said that when Richard was flung by MiB the script said, " and that's that" instead of "and he's f'ing dead" like it usually does if someone dies. Some hope for Richard's return, I guess.

    Also the script said that there is a rule that MiB (and Jacob/Jack too, I think) has to keep his word if he promises something. Referring to promising not to kill Penny, I guess. Seems like he's already broken that rule... Sidekick22 is with us all in wanting "The Big Lost Book of Rules" to be made available. ;)

    Yeah, but what I was thinking was a thread seperate from talking about the last episode. But, whatever.

    Same with me. This is the only LOST forum I read because people on here are great and make good observations.

    The day I brought my TiVo home was the day LOST's pilot was on. I set up a season pass for LOST and recorded the pilot. Six years later, it remains #1 on my season pass list. I can't believe I'll have to delete it soon. :(

    It definitely marks the end of an era for me. The only other show I've gotten so fanatically invested in was the X-Files.

    Also, the first time Jack sees Christian in the distance, it's not John Terry.

    I'm another one who was brought to the Tivo Community through Lost. Sometime early in Season 1, I googled some question, and it brought me here. It's been a great ride.

    I know I've enjoyed Lost a lot more than I would have without the help of this group. So, I know I'll forget some, but thanks, GChance, JKeegan, Rob H., Hefe, DevDogAz, Turtleboy, Betts... and especially Fish Man, because his posts were the first ones I remember really impressing me.

    I have enjoyed the discussions here much more than any other LOST forum and believe me, I have been to a lot of them! I think what I like most is that it is a small group - not 4,000 fans all trying to push their thoughts on to a board all at once. Some of you echo strongly what I was thinking about the episode and some give new insights. That is what makes it all fun!

    Yeah, TiVoCommunity is probably doomed when Lost ends.

    :D

    Yeah, but I'm thinking things might have changed once Jacob died.

    The other possibility is if standing near a bomb that is about to go off doesn't count as committing suicide, perhaps drowning due to a bomb going off doesn't count either.

    Standing near a bomb that is about to go off was considered suicide (or prevented for some other reason) when Jack and Richard tried it. Which was after Jacob died.

    Anyway, I think what is and isn't suicide is about intent. Jin could have saved himself and decided not to.

    No, there are still rewatches and lots of tv shows coming up that we'll all say, "But it's no Lost". Endless comparisons to how these flashbacks were done so much better than those.

    Never mind all the TV shows we'll watch solely because Josh Holloway or Henry Ian Cusick are in for 5 minutes.

    There's a lot to talk about. :)

    Right, but I'm thinking being on the island still allowed them to be protected after Jacob's death. When Jacob was alive, they were also able to be protected off of the island.

    Otherwise MIB's plan rested on not only one of the candidates pulling the wires, but Sayid running away with the bomb. And he did seem surprised (albeit glad) that Desmond was still alive during this episode, so I'm not certain he was aware of Sayid's reversal, let alone planned on it.

    Actually, maybe intent does play into it, but in a different manner. Jin wasn't trying to kill himself; he just wanted to save Sun. So even though he could have given up on Sun, and left earlier, perhaps that wasn't enough of a reason to consider his death a suicide by TPTB.

    Once it became clear that Sun was unsaveable, Jin transitioned from trying to save Sun to deciding to die with Sun.

    Speaking of Sayid, are we to assume he was no longer a candidate by the time they got onto the sub?
