If not LOST, then what?

Posted in Fringe, General Info, Observations, ReThinking LOST with tags , , on December 21, 2010 by Scott Copperman

Once I have a few minutes of free time, this site will change slightly to become the “Things Scott Copperman wonders about LOST and other TV shows” site.

With LOST off the air and no post “new man in charge” content to wonder about, I’m going to diversify the focus of this site so that it can remain active and become much more so.

What shows will I wonder about? Well, FRINGE is one leading candidate. It’s my favorite show on TV right now. Beyond that, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Speaking of Fringe, I went through the whole Olivia in the alternate universe first half of the season expecting to see John Scott. How could John Scott not make some sort of appearance. He’s the reason our Olivia is with the Fringe Team, isn’t he?

Well, I hadn’t realized Mark Valley and Anna Torv were linked romantically off-air. And in early 2010, they divorced after a short marriage.

I’d like to think that he’d still come back to reprise his role, but I can’t say I really blame him or Anna if either would prefer not. I’m pretty sure I’d have a hard time in a similar situation.

Well, that’s what I’ve been wondering. More to come. Stay tuned, and watch for new episodes of ReThinking LOST to be released in early 2011 as well.

After a month’s absence, ReThinking LOST is back

Posted in General Info, ReThinking LOST with tags , , , on July 6, 2010 by Scott Copperman

Episode 43 of the ReThinking LOST podcast is now available.

There were multiple reasons for the delay – none less important than the fact that Elton and I had overfilled our ReThinking LOST file storage space on podbean and short of shelling out $100, we had to wait a few weeks for new space to become available.

Please enjoy this “old school” style look at some spoilers that the Dark UFO site decided NOT to share and be sure to keep looking for us to rethink LOST.

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.

The Lesson Learned is Never Give Up on Your Theories

Posted in ReThinking LOST, Theories with tags , , , , , , , , on April 6, 2010 by Scott Copperman

Wow, we may have actually gotten something right!

**Be warned, this entry makes reference to the episode of LOST which aired Tues, April 6 in the USA **

Spoilers for that April 6 episode follow…

If you’re a fan of our ReThinking LOST podcast, and you listened to our preseason 6 prediction show, (I think that’s where it was) then you heard Elton and I discuss the possibility that our Losties might be living in an Alternate Reality post-incident and that it might unravel as one by one they found themselves with the sneaking suspicioin it just didn’t feel right.

Well, that’s starting to look like that might be the case with the Flash Sideways.

(admittedly, I did bail on this theory about 4 episodes ago, but I will happily point out that we did think this was the route it might go back before the season started)

I will also posit that the Flash Sideways are the result of the incident AND consequently the MIB getting set free. I find it interesting that when Desmond touched Penny’s hand, he snapped back to the island. And when he followed Sayid, the was back in the Flash Sideways.

So, when Widmore says all that Desmond and Jin love will be gone, it’s because the Flash Sideways life will result. The MIB is indeed planning to fulfill his promises, by bringing about the Flash Sideways timeline.

Good stuff… my question is “why does Hawking say that Desmond isn’t ready to look for Penny yet?”

The Locke/Sawyer Loophole

Posted in Observations, Theories, Videos with tags , , , , , on March 26, 2010 by Scott Copperman

At the 8:00 mark of Episode 33 of ReThinking LOST, Elton and I talk about the scene in “The Brig”¬† when Richard Alpert gives John Locke a file on Sawyer…

I believe this scene is significant for multiple reasons.

  1. Richard’s role has been defined in Ab Aeterno as someone who when Jacob can’t or won’t intervene¬† can step in on his behalf.
  2. John Locke is being given a “loop hole” in the mandate that he must kill his father.

The whole purpose of having Locke kills his father seems strange. We all thought at the time that it was Ben testing John’s fortitude, but when you watch this scene, it seems like Richard is endorsing the mandate. So… it was Jacob’s will? And his will that Locke make use of this loophole?

Hmmmm…
