I think lots of things in the show, especially early on, should just be given up on. Walt, Eko, Aaron, the whispers, the others, etc were all things that were really important at one point but for whatever reason don't matter anymore.

Lots of people are up in arms saying everything was just made up as they went along and there was no master plan. I don't understand that at all. It'd be a miracle to pull off 6 seasons of a show with an exact plan ahead of time. It seems to me they had a blueprint of what they wanted and filled in holes along the way. When they were writing season 1 and focused a lot on Walt they had no idea the show was even going to get a 2nd season much less 6.

yup you are right. although the others and the whispers have been explained really. so was the polar bear. :)

How was the polar bear explained?

DHARMA Initiative brought them and performed test on the bears. They were initially kept in the cages Sawyer and Kate found themselves in.

The DHARMA Initiative was trying to stop the end of humanity. It is the whole thing with the #'s. The #'s were in the Valenzetti Equation. It was supposed to predict the end of humanity. They were there studying ways to alter the #'s and stop the extinction of humans. They brought the Polar Bears to the Island to reverse evolution. They wanted to turn them back into brown bears. If they could do this then they would learn how to slow down extinction, and possibly make it work for humans. They also trained them to turn the wheel. That is why the one was in the desert back in like season 4 I think. They explain a lot of this stuff on the extra DVD stuff and some hidden DHARMA vids online.

Nobody is complaining -- he just couldn't remember how they explained it.

It's a long and complicated series, and I know I've forgotten a thing or two about it.

I am, of course, recording all the Lost shows this weekend. I typically don't start watching the Tuesday show until about 20-30 minutes have been recorded. Then I watch the recording and whiz past the commercials.

So here's my question. Should I watch the pilot parts 1 & 2 on Saturday night the same way? Or should I wait and watch them both before the other shows on Sunday?

Decisions, decisions.

What should I do?

I do the same thing. I always start at 930. I am going to watch the Pilot on Sunday @ 6 before the recap starts. FF threw the commercials. Then I will watch the recap, and FF threw the commercials, and when the Finale comes on I should be about caught up. I dont know why, but I actually want to watch the Finale in real time.

If we watch everything in one night will our heads explode when it's over?

{{can't believe I said "when it's over". :( I don't want it to end.}}

I'm leaning towards watching it all on Sunday. I may even delay watching the final 2 1/2 hours. Get it caught up during the news before JKL. Commercials during Lost drive me nuts. And you know it's going to be a cliff hanger or wtf moment before every commercial break.

lol I won't even try the Lost internet boards probably before Monday anyway. They'll be slammed.

I dunno'. :idea:

Yeah the commercials drive me nuts also, I am thinking it will be just like you are saying, a WFT moment right before every commercial. That is kind of why I want to watch it live. I want to experience it that way.
