ReThinking the LOST finale

Posted in General Info, ReThinking LOST with tags , , , on May 28, 2010 by Scott Copperman

Unfortunately, there’s been some sort of Mix-Up at podbean and we won’t be able to upload Part 1 of our finale analysis until Tuesday of next week.

I KNOW!

Sorry about that. I hope it’s still relevant and worth your time.

Watch for it.

Is Jacob’s brother dead?

Posted in ReThinking LOST, Some wonderings I don't really believe, Theories, Videos with tags , , on May 13, 2010 by Scott Copperman

Wow, what a tough question. My gut instinct is “yes.” We see MIB’s body, he’s supposedly “Adam” in the cave, and it would make sense to say/think that the MIB we’ve seen since the moment above was a new entity (Smokey) taking the form of Jacob’s brother the way he took Locke’s form.

However…. however… there are multiple reasons I’d have to say “no.” Among them, the way MIB describes himself… as someone who was human once, who had is humanity taken away by Jacob…. and the way “Mother” described the fate of those who into the cave as being worse than death.

So, at this moment, before we record this week’s ReThinking LOST, I’m thinking that the Smokey monster is an altered form of MIB. His soul? Mabye. His evil parts? I don’t think so. I think the “evil” people think they see is anger and frustration. But, I think that the smoke monster is the MIB changed (because he was special, because he was blessed by Mother or maybe cursed), and that it really is him. No longer human (so maybe you could say he’s dead), but still that same identity.

Stop Blue Bird

If you liked the LOST ARGs, then you should consider this…

http://www.abc.net.au/innovation/bluebird/what_is_bbar.htm

it’s not a ABC (the TV network) produced thing. It’s a separate project by an Australian company. And it has nothing to do with LOST. But it has a very LOST, hiatus-y, feel to it.

Let me know if you plan to particpate. I’m working on freeing up some time in my schedule to do the same.

Editing a 2.5 hour finale in 6 days

Posted in Airdates and Show Schedule, Observations, Some wonderings I don't really believe on May 11, 2010 by Scott Copperman

I was listening to the Official LOST Audio Podcast from May 7, and I was struck by what Damon and Carlton said about how they’ve basically edited a feature film in a fraction of the time normally allotted to such a task.

When you think about it, they do that pretty regularly… maybe not a 2.5 hour episode, but a 1 hour episode… far more nuanced than your standard sit-com, that is basically a mini-feature film.

It’s pretty impressive.

What I’d love to know see is the cutting room floor material. We get a glimpse of it in the Geronimo Jack’s podcast but it’s been pretty conspicuously not part of the DVDs. There are some deleted scenes, but they’re deleted from the final cuts… very polished looking and all. I’m curious what some of the raw deleted, we changed our mind completely, footage might be. There must be quite a bit from over 120 hours of LOST.

Still, it must be said, I’m very impressed by the work the show’s producers do and and have done… especially with the high quality of the finished product.
