I can't help it. There's quite a few people in the office who, like me, are hoplessly addicted to Lost. And though last night's episode was a little slow, there was still a lot going on. In the conversations I've had today, we've come up with a few points that I hadn't realized before.
- Hurley owns the box company that Locke worked for. I didn't know that!
- The logo seen on Desmond's jumper and all the food was also seen imprinted on the tail of the shark that attacked Sawyer.
- Hurley apparently told the snowman joke in Season 1.
- The bag that Mike was carrying the polar bear stuffed animal in before he gave it to Walt had the Oceanic Airlines logo on it.
So what does all this mean? Am I getting too wrapped up in this? Is Hurley the one Desmond is waiting for? Clearly, somehow everyone is connected. The coolness of this show is figuring out how. B mentioned (and I totally agree) that that it's a little bit Twin Peaks-esque in that each character has a giant background story that is let out in pieces. (It's just not quite as trippy as Twin Peaks was, but this way it attracts a bigger audience and we get more episodes...) Good stuff.
Any other insights I'm missing?
