Relaunching (Finally)

Posted in Fringe, General Info, Some wonderings I don't really believe with tags , on December 2, 2011 by Scott Copperman

Well, it’s time to accept the fact LOST is gone, and I completely misjudged the post-LOSTworld.

There have been several attempts at making a LOST-like show, and they’ve all failed. Even my current favorite, Fringe, is struggling to stay a viable commodity.

With LOST no longer on the air, it’s time to rebrand this website officially as “Thing Scott Copperman Wonders about TV” … all TV, not just LOST.

And, well…, we’ll take it from there.

 

Thanks for stopping by. Check back in soon.

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.

ReThinking Flash Sideways

Posted in Observations, Some wonderings I don't really believe, Theories with tags , , , , , on February 28, 2010 by Scott Copperman

I’ll admit, so far they seem pointless. Well, not pointless, but unnecessarily long. We get it, life could have turned out differently for the Losties.

So far we’ve seen the first two days or so after the plane lands in LAX over and over again, with an emphasis on Jack, Locke, Kate, and Claire. At this rate, we’re going to have to sit through similar back-up and tell the story flash sideways for Sayid, Hurley, Sawyer, Sun and Jin (the one I’m most intrigued by), and maybe more.

Again, we get it… life is different, more so than simply having landed. I’m ready for it to have a more obvious meaning.

So, what is the point? Well, last night I had the chance to participate in LOSTBlog’s Special Saturday Coffee Talk. I expressed these feelings and as I spoke and listened to others, I could start to see a potential purpose to it all.

LOSTBlog’s Jon said he feels the flash sideways may be the epilogue to the show. I concede that the writers certainly must have a purpose, and I no longer think it’s practical to expect the “timelines” to merge. In fact, I think it’s very important to note that Damon and Carlton have gone out of their way to say this is not an ALTERNATE anything, it’s a flash sideways. And they’ve also used vague terms when describing the apparent connection between the incident and the emergence of this other outcome of flight 815.

Given that the flash forwards and flash backs were both part of the characters, “OUR characters” as some people call them, lives, it seems reasonable to expect that the flash sideways will too. But where does it all fit in? If we were talking about 2006 for Jin or Jack, sure, there’s a whole to fill. But so far, there is no correspondence between the times we’re witnessing in the flash sideways and the gaps created by time travel.

I’ve to theorize this…

the flash sideways are indeed a set of experiences our characters will go through. Jack’s deja vu moments are the result of it being the same Jack we know on island. But, our error is in thinking that the flash sideways are the result of the incident. I suggest that instead they are the result of some event we have yet to see or experience. Something that may happen in the middle or final trimester of the season.

Suppose that Jack and the others are offered a chance (perhaps as a reward or a temptation) to change things in a different way. Through a sacrifice on someone’s part (becoming Adam and Eve?) the losties and key others we’ve seen (Dogen, Ben, Ethan, and ?) get a chance to live life without Jacob’s influence. And that is the life we see in the flash sideways.

This needs to be fleshed out more, but it already reflects a major shift in my thinking about the off island stuff. What do you think?

Claire and Aaron

Posted in Observations, Some wonderings I don't really believe, Theories with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 27, 2010 by Scott Copperman

Most of us assume Claire died, and was “claimed” or “infected.”

She feverently wants her baby back (I always think of the Chili’s “I want my baby back, baby back…” song when I type that). Why?

I mean, duh, it’s her baby. But, she calmly left the baby in the first place, she didn’t seem concerned back when she was with Christian in the cabin, and she’s not OLD Claire, she’s been changed. Why is the baby so important…

I have two theories:

  1. (25%) At first, she was with Christian Shephard, and Christian was an agent of Jacob (as he claimed at times). Christian calmed her, assured her it was okay for the baby to be with the Losties (or Others), but then after some sort of falling out, Claire sided with Smokey and now feels that is no longer acceptable.
  2. (75%) Claire is possessed by an entity who has a connection to the ENTITY WHO POSSESSED AARON! Yes, baby Aaron did die on the island, only to be claimed when Jin gave Claire the urchin. Infected Claire wants the infected baby back.

In all honesty, I don’t particularly believe either of these, but it’s a “whoa, maybe…” kind of thing.

Some questions about Charles Widmore

Posted in Observations, Some wonderings I don't really believe with tags , , on January 25, 2010 by Scott Copperman

As we approach the start of season 6, people are getting excited. I am too.

We’ve already recorded our last hiatus episode of ReThinking LOST (the predictions episode will be out by Thursday), so this blog will be a great place for me to share the couple of last minute musings I have.

Today I’d like to talk a bit about Charles Widmore.

Charles was once co-leader of the Others. He was exiled, and hasn’t been back to the island since (as far as we know).

Here are some questions I have…

When we saw Widmore at his youngest, was he in charge of the others? It didn’t seem so. If so, by what right? If not, who was in charge and how did Charles come to be the man?

When he was a leader of the group, did he interact with Jacob? Could he see/hear him? Was his relationship with Jacob better than Bens?

Why couldn’t Widmore get back to the island?  He clearly knew about the Lamppost (he told Desmond that was where Hawking was) … is it that the island would not have allowed him back? Why didn’t Widmore get on the freighter (I suspect it’s partly because he knew how that all would play out)?

Who is Penny’s mother? Many people assume Penny is the child Widmore fathered while off island. Some think it could be Locke. What do you think?

How did Widmore become so wealthy? Is that part of being exiled? What are Widmore’s connections to Dharma, Hanso, Paik? Isn’t the timing of this all kind of odd? Widmore was still on island 16 years before the Losties arrived. That’s a lot of power that man has acquired in a very short amount of time.

Naomi had a picture of Desmond and Penny, which suggests Widmore knew Desmond was on the island. How? Did he manipulate Desmond to be there?

I have a feeling Widmore will play a lesser role in Season 6. That would be disappointing, because I think TPTB spent a lot of time setting him up as the “bad guy if it’s not Ben.” And I don’t think Ben’s a bad guy – not at his core.
