Random Updates


OLDHAM EASTER EGG: Last episode, when Sayid finished off his last Ben-appointed victim in Russia, he was in a building that was labeled "Oldham Pharmaceuticals" over the door in Russian letters. Oldham, of course, being Dharma's truth serum wielding torturer. Not sure what that means. I guess that Oldham or his relatives are still around in the 2000s and now operating a business? Will we learn more about Oldham, or is this just a fun thing hidden in the spot for nerds like me to find?


THE M.NIGHT MISTAKE: Also, there's a story on Lostpedia today that M. Night Shyamalan is going to direct the series finale of Lost next year, but I HOPE that this is only an April Fool's Day prank. Because they should definitely let series regular Jack Bender direct the finale. M. Night hasn't directed a piece of film since Unbreakable. If it's true, however, then I guess we can expect a shocking twist ending... like water kills the Others, or that the island is really a commune of hippies hidden away in Central Park.


WHERE ARE ROSE AND BERNARD POLL RESULTS: Looks like most people think Rose and Bernard are too boring to care about. For the record, my answer to the poll was "On the beach playing Backgammon". I think maybe Rose and Bernie got left behind in time and will end up being the "adam and eve" skeletons found in the cave in Season One holding white and black stones (backgammon pieces). Maybe that will be the last shot of the series, the two of them in the cave playing backgammon, forgotten by everyone. Except me. Tonight's episode is "Whatever happened, happened."

Do you think Adam and Eve are Rose and Bernard because they are black and white like the backgammon pieces, Wes? That is really racist.

Um, no, more because they are in the age demographic that plays backgammon. It's actually ageism.

Just checked and the M. Night thing WAS an April Fool's joke, from Lostpedia.

If you can't play backgammon on the beach, you can have fun playing the best backgammon games around by going to:

Wow, another backgammon expert! How weird can it get!
Seriously, I thing I got the Lost - backgammon relationship without watching a single episode. Correct me if I got it all wrong.
