Why Lost Found Such a Global Audience
Many stories that include a message in a bottle are those with people lost at sea, but it was lightning in a bottle that changed the television landscape forever. ABC’s Lost coincidentally did have people lost at sea and was a monumental show that kept audiences wanting more. It helped catapult a network that was in dire need of viewership and brought legitimacy back to the small screen. Audiences and television critics alike, consistently name Lost as one of the best television shows of all time. The ABC juggernaut that broke network records when it premiered on September 22, 2004, paved the way for what we now call cinematic television during its six seasons. There have been many television show…
I got into the show recently and I thought that smoke monster thing was cool so i searched it up. When i searched up smoke monster it said Man in Black. Spoiled.
When Lost was on the air the community around the show was enormous. Websites, forums, blogs and podcasts were founded to provide places for fans to come together and discuss the show; "the online water cooler" as it was once called by someone (no idea who!) Every week fans of the show would rush online after an episode to discuss what had happened.
Sadly, the vast majority of these places are no longer in existence. Some have been fully saved by The Internet Archive, some partially and some have been lost entirely.
Lostpedia is an amazing resource that has captured much of the fandom that exists (existed) around the show but unfortunately much of what it links to externally is gone. The official ABC website is gone. The Sky1 website that hos…
I know the show is long over, but this site seems to be a magnet for spam. And there aren't any admins around to remove it.
Here's my final teaser for hints to the upcoming story I have written: this is an image I designed last November, to resemble the DVD covers of the first six seasons.
There are a few easter eggs. Did you spot them?
Here's the updated schedule:
7.01: Another Airdate: February 7th, 2019 - 10 pm EST Centricity: Ajira Six Description: The survivors have escaped the Island - and must face a new threat head on.
7.02: The Gifted Airdate: February 7th, 2019 - 11 pm EST Centricity: Walt Description: Walt tries to discover his purpose as he faces a critical task to aid Hurley.
7.03: Death's Hand Airdate: February 14th, 2019 - 10 pm EST Centricity: Kate Description: To Be Revealed
7.04: To Be Revealed Airdate: February 21st, 2019 -…
Back when Lost was on air, we would gradually get official information, tidbits about upcoming episodes, particularly in the form of airdates, titles, a short one-line description, and even a centric character. I intend to follow suit.
Each week, from here on into when I actually release my episodes publicly, I will gradually update this schedule with these little details about the forthcoming episodes.
Here's our first schedule release:
Airdate: February 7th, 2019
Centricity: Ajira Six
Description: The survivors have escaped the Island - and must face a new threat head on.
7.02: The Gifted
Airdate: February 7th, 2019
Description: Walt tries to discover his purpose as he faces a critical task to aid Hurley.
Okay, so here's another sneak peek. It's a piece of scene from an episode again this time, though it's shorter than last week's. And like last week, I have redacted some details from the preview that you will be able to see in the full episode.
Here it is: https://www.reddit.com/user/MrLockeIsAWarrior/comments/agu12s/lost_season_7_second_sneak_peek/
I decided that I'm going to try to have a teaser each week until the premiere "airs" in February to promote it and give you a sense of what's coming. It could be a snippet of a scene, or information, or some other kind of promotional material.
This week's teaser is a scene from the upcoming season. There are a few bits of it I've redacted because I don't want to give away too much of the scene before the premiere, I want there to still be a few details to discover in that scene.
It will also give you a sense of the writing style I'm going to be employing for my storytelling of this season.
Here it is: https://www.reddit.com/user/MrLockeIsAWarrior/comments/aeqnkm/lost_season_7_first_sneak_peek/
UPDATE - 1/16: Okay, so here's another sneak peek…
It's a project I've been writing solo. I've been writing the episodes since last May. (Though I've had the ideas for the story developing on and off on the backburner since the middle of 2015.)
I wanted to do it as a tribute to Lost, since it is my favorite television series and one of my primary inspirations that interested me in storytelling.
For many years after the series ended, I believed a "Season 7" was untenable. Season 6 was a fairly definitive ending in terms of character, plot, and mythology arcs, as well as in terms of exploring the central themes, as well as in terms of the poetry and structure of Season 6. I always believed that, if Lost ever returned, it should be in the form of a spinoff (like "The Adventures of Hurley and Be…
I just want to say thank you for this wiki because along with the show this was a great source when I needed to refer to many things in order to create my map as accuratly as possible. I know its not 100% accurate as this is not possible but I independently came to these conclusions and I've seen many others have as well although with few disagreements. But thanks again and if anyone wants to see how it turned out the link will be included below! :D
So it's been over a dozen years since the premiere and I'm hard pressed to find a TV drama that makes me feel the way Lost does. Mad Men came close, I loved Fringe, all the Treks have their moments. No series has captured me the way Lost does.
Thoughts? Any other drama come close to the brilliance of Lost in your opinion?
This is the follow up to my 2014 ten year tribute video. I re-used much of the same footage but this time put it to a new, amazing track, "Freedom Fighters" by Two Steps from Hell. I wanted to make something that would either inspire someone to watch LOST for the first time, or spark a rewatch for those that have already seen it.
I'm very proud of it. I hope you like it too.

The Dharma Lamp Post Station's Foucault pendulum seen in season 5 episode, 316 (used to find the Island), is much more than just a cool looking prop. There is actually some solid and compelling scientific thinking behind it.
Here I will touch on the science of why the movement of the pendulum was such a clever inclusion. When I first saw how they were finding the Island (through the use of a pendulum and Earth's own gravity), I thought it was brilliant.
The swinging of the pendulum looks random but it is anything but. The actual plane of swing rotates relative to the Earth.
A layman's translation of this is that over a period of time, a random looking swing of the pendulum actually undergoes a mathematically predictable motion in relation to t…

On September 22nd 2005, Lostpedia was created. That means it’s now 10 years old! It was also the first anniversary of Lost, and the day after the much anticipated Season 2 premiere was aired. During the years that followed, Lostpedia grew into one of the biggest fansites about the TV series on the internet. It became an incredible resource for fans to keep track of all the twists and storylines within the show as they obsessively documented everything from the number of crash survivors still on the Island, to more bizarre stuff like how many times a season Hurley said dude. I’ve been coming here since 2006, and I’ve been a member since 2007. So in order to mark this milestone, I’d like to go through 10 things which had a significant impact…

I have been having a go with some of the shippers on this site with their tendency to make derogatory comments about the intelligence and dedication to the show of people disappointed in season 6 and the finale. There was a response by BooRadley2015 that I think pretty much hit the nail on the head and I couldn't do a better job, so I thought it deserved its own article post.
This was a little disappointing. Your conclusion seems to be "haters gonna hate." But if you're going to write a thoughtful defense of the finale, it would help to address dissenting opinions rationally and respectfully, and not just dismiss them out of hand.
You say you 'still hear and read the opinion “that it was rubbish.” That it “didn’t make sense” or “it was a co…
What with a smoke monster security system it seems to do fine on its own. Just kill everyone who comes aboard...pretty much what it does most of the time anyway. In fact adding any human elements seem to complicate it exponentially.
The protector doesn't seem to have much a job other than finding a new stooge to babysit the magic butt plug. He doesn't perform any maintenance, he doesn't routinely fill the gas tank, he doesn't even feed the monkey.
So, it's been over five years since Lost bowed from our screens, but I'm still searching for something that fills the void at least somewhat. Fringe came extremely close, and I ended up loving it so much that it deserved it's own rank alongside Lost. Breaking Bad was absolutely amazing, particularly in its last two seasons, but it's been off the air for two years now. Rick and Morty is totally incredible, but it still doesn't quite fill it. Twin Peaks may have been the closest thing to actually "replacing" Lost, and it might end up doing just that again when it comes back in 2017, but until then the search goes on.
What are you guys all watching? Have you ever found something on par with Lost? Maybe we could all find a new show and marathon…
Trying to make everything of the show's underlying story arc about Jacob finding his replacement make sense, I came up with these ten points/mini-essays:
1. Jacob has been bringing people to the Island for millennia, trying to find someone who can take over his role and thus kill his brother.
2. Jacob's plans become increasingly philanthropic: he tries the US Army, then the Dharma Initiative, with his chosen candidate leading each group. They prove unworthy and so Jacob decides to go on a big recruitment drive. He brings together a group of people and ensures that they get on the same plane, recruiting from an early age those time travellers who he saw inciting the Incident. Knowing that a man who time travelled to 1977 left a diary describi…
'since the beginning of the show , i have watched it 9 times, from beginning to end. each time it seems new and fresh to me . it is not boring.... its not tedious..... its still exciting...its not just a show...it has soul ....it talks to me.

Many people said that the ending of Lost was a big surprise, in a a negative way. Turns out lots of people don't like the ending, saying it was a complete letdown for them. Reactions to the ending was like "Wow, that's just stupid." But they say the rest of the show is really good, until the end...Misterpunk (talk) 04:41, August 6, 2015 (UTC)
There is an Island that has a very special place on it, called the Core. Now, the Core is causing the Island to emit a very strong, but also extraordinary electromagnetic energy. Well, what makes Island's electromagnetic energy extraordinary is the fact that the energy is able to heal things that cannot be easily healed, like cancer and paralysis, and the fact that the energy can cause a person to time travel.
However, not everything about the Island is that beautiful. Long time ago, a man at its forties has been sucked up by the Core and turned into a Monster that can impersonate any dead person, including himself, but to that extent that there is virtually impossible to know the difference between the Monster and a real dead person the Mo…
I would like to propose Season 7 of "Lost": -
The season deals with events between the plane escaping the island (2007) and 2015
EPISODE 1 "Dinner time"
VINCENT eating JACK's recently deceased body
Seriously though: - I would like to know the following: 1) On the island (Hugo and Ben, Ber-NARD and Rose, Desmond leaves? Walt arrives) i) Is Ben now a good guy or does he have lapses? ii) Is Hugo visited by spirits who 'haven't moved on' such as Michael? How do they help him or Hugo/Ben/Walt help the spirits? iii) As Jacob did, does the 'Man in Black' appear as a spirit to Hugo? iv) How does Hugo adapt to his new role and what are the details of being 'the new Jacob'? Is he like a sorcerer? Does he also cause people to come …
So, the finale aired 5 years ago today. Yup.
It's just crazy, because it feels like yesterday. It also really does feel like the pinnacle moment for a lot of things. I was interested in how the television landscape would develop post-Lost, but it actually still feels like everything is an "epilogue" in comparison.
Fringe was great, and since it began airing in 2008 held its own ground and voice. When it finished in 2013, that felt like the legitimate end to the voice of Lost on television. All of those little "Lost-ish" series (Flashforward, The Event) never took off. Community, which I know has no connection to Lost (other than their terrific allusion to it in the 2nd season christmas special) has a similar fanbase and cult following, and I…
5 years after Lost’s ending, I still hear and read the opinion “that it was rubbish.” That it “didn’t make sense” or “it was a complete let down.” And yeah, astonishingly people still think they were dead all along. This post is my attempt to explain why Lost’s final episode hit the nail on the head in doing what it was supposed to do, and while it may have disappointed some (more on that later) it was certainly not rubbish. It was actually quite brilliant.
Please note, there will be spoilers in this blog if you haven't seen the ending. It's also quite long, but stick with it
If you already understand the ending, feel free to skip the next paragraph
Let’s get the big question out of the way first – what was the ending really all about. Ah yes, t…

- Leonard Nimoy, “A Lifetime of Love: Poems on the Passages of Life” -
Science Fiction and Action Adventure film affect most all Americans in some way or another. Taking a look at the highest grossing films of past years, films from the Transformers, Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Harry Potter franchises place high on the list. Indeed, these two genres, more often than not in overlap, represent the most widely explored and financially viable forms of filmmaking in existence today.
It makes sense, then, that the characters of such works would become beloved symbols of American culture, pervasive to all who have lived for even a few years somewhere…
Lostpedia is great. I was looking at the page for "The End" and came across a splendid tidbit. It was under "episode allusions" and it pointed out a mirror-like connection hidden between two distant scenes: Jacob's death in "The Incident" and the Man in Black's in "The End."
Bender's thread has woven through season 1, episode 4; season 5, episode 17; season 6, episode 17; and now season 3, episode 13, "The Man from Tallahassee" (2007).

This man seems to a certain degree to know what he is talking about - but he loses a lot of points for his style. His paragraphs are large and blocky, and they would benefit much from being broken up into individual sections. His grammar is solid, but he seems to lack an understanding of the key mechanics of punctuation.
That being said, he still makes effective points about the rights of people to use drones freely. Particularly when he compares posting videos that violate drone regulations to posting videos that violate copyright - the former, according to him, are regularly and without hesitation noted to those in charge of regulating them, while the latter are often ignored and inconsistently taken down if they are taken down at all. …
1.) Can someone explain to me in the flash-forward timeline when Sun was giving birth to Ji Yeon and Jin was buying a panda for the Chinese ambassador?
2.) Why Locke took the alias Jeremy Bentham?
3.) How Juliet survived a hydrogen bomb blast from point-blank in the normal timeline?
4.) How Jacob and the Man in Black's adopted mom came to the island?
Well, that's it for now. Please comment your answers or questions YOU have.
As morbid as this is going to sound (I mean, it's pretty morbid) I've always been really fascinated with Chernobyl. The concept of a whole abandoned town in the wake of man's folly? Beautiful. The below video combines "handheld" and drone footage of the city of Pripyat near Chernobyl. I noticed in it that they didn't ever get close to the "coffin", which is the name for the concrete container built around the 3rd reactor of the power plant - you can see the top of it and some of the smokestacks in a few shots. I wonder if there are regulations?

"Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
- United States Declaration of Independence, 4 July 1776 -
The question of when a government has forced its powers too far is one that concerns all of humankind. Since the dawn of the species, man has been blessed with an insatiable desire to feel free, and such balance between freedom from opp…
I wonder how the Ajira crew did after leaving the island. How do you explain being in an airplane that disappeared, and now having passengers that weren't in the original Ajira flight to begin with. Plus, having a couple passengers from the famous 815 flight. Not to mention ones that were supposed to have died according to the Oceanic 6 survivors story. I would imagine they got into some issues after finding an airport to land in. Which must have raised slot of questions also.
There have been several visions of dead people, on and off the Island.
This is an attempt to explain them without referencing the Flash Sideways Timeline, which in my opinion was too poorly set up and poorly executed to be taken seriously. The two references to it in the original timeline, Juliet's dying thoughts and Desmond's experiences after being blasted by Widmore, can be explained as the decaying effect of trauma on sanity, or at least on the ability to tell the difference between the material world and the Island's trapped spirits. If the FST must be acknowledged at all, let it be as the dead characters' collective hallucination - if Season 6 had to have the FST, I would have preferred that that season's episodes centred on character…

Sixth shift (2007 or later): The day of Locke's funeral.
Ninth shift: The day the hatch blew up.
Tenth shift: The day Flight 815 (whose passengers did the blowing up) crashed.
Eleventh shift: The day the same people blew open the hatch.
Twelfth shift: December 31, 2004, the day Ben moved the Island. If only Locke could have left the island at that point...
Thirteenth shift: The day Ben first arrived on the Island, in 1973.
Locke's interactions with the Man in Black in the form of Christian under the Orchid happen in 2004, as the Man in Black is not time travelling.
