Lost and Trickery?

How good is Lost? Super good. And they’re not trying to hide anything this time around... giving us fans just enough to go on and start trying to find more of. Like these little tidbits from episode two of season two (caution: spoilers!!!).

Another Polar Bear reference to Walt
Micheal’s gift to Walt at the end of the episode was a stuffed polar bear. Sound familiar? Not only have the survivors encountered, and killed, one on the island, but the Spanish Flash comic that Walt was reading in season one also featured a polar bear. Hmmmm.

The Sum of 4 8 15 16 23 42 = 108
First off, last week Jack found that number on the walls of the finally-breached bunker. Now, this week, when Locke entered that number sequence into the computer, the timer (or whatever it was) reset itself to 108.

What’s That Logo?
Did it say Dharma? And did anyone notice the logo that was superimposed on the shark’s (dolphin’s) fin? I say they were the same and it makes me think that the island is definitely being guarded for some reason. And what about the, "there’s still a world out there?"

Talk About Tease
They’ve left us with the same outcome inside the bunker for the second straight week. F’ers! Main Image
I’m probably not the first to notice this, but has anyone seen the main image on I might be silly, but is that the raft in that image?

In other TV Land news... ER, out. The West Wing, still in... for now. And if you were wondering what became of the new show Commander in Chief, well ABC proclaims that it’s the "number one new drama... on Tuesdays." Congrats!

I noticed the bear references and the "logo" on the shark thing. I'm so totally addicted to this show it's not even funny. In my opinion, it's one of the best shows ever produced (that I've seen).

Seth, do you have this season's episodes recorded in a way that is shareable? I'm sick of everyone talking about how great it is so I'm gonna go buy season 1 this weekend so that I can find out what in the world this show is.

Have you clicked in the Island Insider link? It says answer the question and receive inside info from the writers, but I see no question. Am I crazy?
Damn I love that show.

Nelson -- It might not be the best... but it's damn good, and came at a time when most things sucked.

Rynne -- Yup, saw it, still haven't heard whether or not it's the same logo. My guess is still yes.

Scoot -- Nope, I DVR it, which I can't transfer from. Go rent Season One, and set your DVR to catch all Lost episodes from here on out. They re-played the first episode before this week's, so maybe they'll replay number two next week -- which pretty much gives you a recap of the first episode (sans Jack's flashback).

Sammy-poo -- That's actually an older site, so it's possible that trivia deal doesn't exist anymore. I'm fairly certain that the image of the raft and black smoke has been there all along, too.

I loved this show last year, but I'm starting to get sick of it! It's one unanswered question after another, and if they don't start answering a few of them I'm going to stop watching. Maybe. It's too much to keep track of. That stupid shark almost pushed me over the edge. I like the polar bear thing though; I wish they'd frackin' go somewhere with that.

Best show on TV? Seriously, how hard can it be to make up some random shit, then make up some more random shit to explain it that doesn't actually have to explain anything at all? You must realize they can do this forever. That was the show's original, stated intention. There are things on this show that will never, ever be explained. Get used to it.

Next week looks promising... (but I say that every week and I'm usually disappointed.)

On the strength of your recommendation I bought the Season 1 DVDs. I thought I'd take it slow, but I ended up watching all of the episodes in one weekend. Season 2 really is great and I bet they'll make most mysteries wrap up into the "it's an island of psychological and science experiments done by the Dharma corporation" theme, which is great with me.
