Re: Lost: So what's your theory?

I think "Lost" should now be called "Lost It". It felt like it had a plot once and it was going somewhere but I must admit it's certainly Lost my interest now. Unlike others on this thread I've given up.

Lost was a very stupid show not even worthy of discussion.

I am unfortunately very confused about Lost, but I will think about it and get back to you.

Re: Lost: So what's your theory?

Ben's backstory finally clarified my mind on what we're watching... this show is a political history allegory, with the survivors as the US, and Ben's group as the USSR! (I've expounded on this theory in this thread, to keep from dominating this one.)

Re: Lost: So what's your theory?

My theory. This show has gone on far to long.. It should have finished about episode 1, ok thats a little harsh, maybe one series would have been enough. Didn't anyone tell them you can have to much of a good thing, or in this case, just to much!!!!!

Re: Lost: So what's your theory?

I always wondered about people who complain about how the show has gone on too long and they should of quit some time ago...I guess it's not that bad to still be watching (and spending time commenting on some forum about this horrible show )

Personnally, I think it's only gotten better. And with the latest season finale, a flashforward instead of a flashback, brilliant!

Re: Lost: So what's your theory?

Delurking for a moment......

The show is definately one entire season behind where it should have been. Although the final epis of season 3 were compelling, it only pointed out in contrast just how bad season 2 really was.
The writers have basically admitted they were attempting to drag the show out as long as possible and now are getting being reined in by the moneymen behind the scenes. (who'd have though we'd ever side with the suits behind the scenes??!!)

Lost is a coin toss to me as to whether or not Ill tune in next year. Too bad too, it started out as the best thing on broadcast TV, then it took a serious JJ Abrahms turn south...

Re: Lost: So what's your theory?

I'd have to agree with trey, I don't know if I'll even bother to watch the next series. Even with all the 'secrets' revealed at the end of the last series, I just don't know if I can care enough about what is going on to watch another series of the show.

What has probably hurt Lost most of all is Heroes, another show which has ongoing mysteries, but wheras Lost seems content to just string the audience along, Heroes has shown that you can explain what is going on and add new stories.

It just seems to be a wasted oppertunity that Lost seems unable to give the audience any real answers

Re: Lost: So what's your theory?

Maybe they're all hooked up to a computer Matrix-style , and one day they'll relaise? After all the events which occur in the programme are generally too far fetched or so improbable as to be almost impossible

either way , the way to disappoint the least number of people , or to ensure they don't end on an anticlimax , is to never reveal the whole truth . I believe that the producers will have us still guessing even after the final epsiode has finished

I couldn't agree more! Each of the three seasons has had its share of great moments and superb writing, and I can hardly wait for season 4 to arrive. The only gripe I have is I wish there were 2 more seasons with circa 24 episodes each, rather than 3 seasons with 16 each.

Re: Lost: So what's your theory?

I'm not so sure, I think 16 episodes per series will give it a better pace.

I'm glad they've decided not to let it go on forever, though...

Re: Lost: So what's your theories? SPOILERS FOR SEASON 3

SPOILERS FOR SEASON 3

I just got completely Lost this week and watched the box-set of Series 3. I've been waiting for ages for this, since I lost Sky TV from Virgin Cable. Anyway, I was blown away. I can't see why people are knocking it in this thread. IMHO 'Lost' and 'Firefly' were the only two shows worth watching in the last five years.

Anyway, my theory from Day One has always been that they were on some higher plane of Hell - Purgatory, Limbo, whatever you wish. Now I'm less sure, (even though they are clearly all already dead) but there is certainly some religious element to the final explanation.

The Others are not the DHARMA scientists. The Others, apart from Ben (who is a Psychopath) and maybe a few more, are the Hostiles that DHARMA were afraid of. The Hostiles killed all the DHARMA scientists. I guess the Hostiles got to the Island in the same way as everyone else did - shipwrecks, helicopter and plane crashes - the Slave Brig is centuries old remember.

My theory is that someone from Hanso discovered a way to reach the Island (and more importantly to get off again), discovered all the mysterious wonders, and the ability to heal wounds, and decided to experiment in order to bring these discoveries to the outside world. I think their initial ideas were very idealistic and altruistic, but once they got into a conflict with the hostiles, those ideals got downgraded.

My only problem would be: How did the DHARMA Initiative manage to build the stations?

Now about Jacob: Is Jacob the devil? Is Jacob the Island? Is he just another Other?

That I don't know. I do know that Ben is a fraud, he has never spoken to Jacob. John Locke has it all figured out and Jacob needs John to help him remove all the people who should not be there.

Penny and the Freighter: I haven't figured that out yet either. The freighter is not Penny's ship. Ben told them not to trust Naomi. Unfortunately, every single thing that Ben has said so far has been proved to be a lie, so why not that too. But John knifed her, so he must have agreed with Ben for once.

What I really didn't understand was the flash-forwards. That has just confused me even more. They only explanation would be that they are all re-living various possible timelines (just like Desmond) which may or may not come true. However, the woman in the Jewelers told Desmond that time was fixed and he couldn't change it - and Charlie did die in the end - so there cannot be alternative timelines.

I haven't worked many things out yet. How do people die on the Island if they are already dead? Where do they go when they die? Why can't John or Mikiel (cyclops) seem to die?

At least Season 3 stopped messing around and gave some answers. It just produced a lot of new questions too.

Re: Lost: So what's your theory?

They cannot die if they are already dead, therefore they cannot be dead already. Interesting theories but I do not for a second believe they are already dead. The flashforward with Jack and Kate at the end of the last season proves this. They eventually leave the island and come back to "reality".

Re: Lost: So what's your theory?

The flash-forward pretty much blew all of my theories to smithereens.

If we are even to believe it. If it's true, we have confirmation that the two characters involved survive to return home. Could the writers and producers really have intended to give that much away?
