Let's just say Charlotte is just as hot as she was on the show, if not hotter. Really nice too.

Dear lord.

She was wearing a black motorcycle jacket so I wasn't able to see that much.

I wish I could watch this for the first time again. Nothing like your first time.

I still maintain that Walkabout is one of the finest hours on television, and that Lost had the best pilot of all time.

I'm currently going back and watching all the Desmond-centric episodes.

Desmond is my favorite character, for sure. I really liked Hurley too. And Locke in the first season. You're making me want to watch all these episodes again!

It was "real" in the sense that they were all in a bardo "world" or existence. Working out their past in the afterlife.

The writers borrowed from Twin Peaks and Mulholland Drive, which are both set in bardo worlds.

The island was not the afterlife. That's what the alternate timeline was in the 6th season only. When Christian explains to Jack that "it's a place you all created so you could find each other", he wasn't talking about the island, but the Los Angeles in the "flash sideways" segments. One by one they "wake up" and realize where they are, and Jack is the last to understand. The island being some sort of purgatory was shot down long ago.

As for how the bomb exploding didn't destroy Juliet immediately (it would have killed all of them considering how close they were to it), it's kind of a pointless question to ask when the bomb somehow transported them from the 1970s back to their own time. This is something that Faraday had calculated: either the bomb's explosion would interact with the electromagnetic anomaly inside the island to cause the time shift they were hoping for, or it would kill all of them. It's the chance they took. It worked.

Yeah, that's the standard interpretation and that works well enough. I don't go out of my way to come up with an exotic interpretation for anything I think is straightforward. For example, I'm fine with tech supports explanation at the end of Vanilla Sky, and pretty much ok with Lenny's reveal at the end of Memento. But other things require some heavy lifting.

So ask yourself, if a guy is reading a comic that features a polar bear. Then his plane crashes. Then he sees a polar bear in a tropical jungle. What could that possibly imply?

Some will argue for the dying dream theory. That works as well I suppose. But aside from Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge I don't typically find that explanation appealing most of the time.

Bardo Thodol is something I became acquainted with when pondering Mulholland Drive. I later came to see it in Twin Peaks, and most definitely in LOST. In fact, I'd argue that LOST begs for that interpretation.

But some writers love to leave things open for interpretation. Like Lynch and Nolan. So the rest of us get to squabble and argue for our favorite interpretations endlessly. That's fun too.

Well this has been quite the thread bump.

There are only two series that every so often I feel compelled to rewatch: The Sopranos and Lost.

I'm curious about The Crossing. It's interesting that the promos bill it as coming "from the network that brought you Lost".

Wow, people are talking about Lost!

I haven’t watched this show since... I don’t remember. But it was great! I remember going to school the next day and everyone was like, “Did you watch Lost last night?” I was thinking about rewatching it on Netflix, but was overwhelmed by the thought of 120 episodes, and then Netflix got rid of it.
