TV Guide Pontificates on Lost Secrets

With tongue planted firmly in cheek, TV Guide writer Ben Katner outlines six potential explanations for the odd goings-on in the "Lost" Universe. They are:
  1. The survivors aren't survivors at all. They're in heaven.

  2. Or, the survivors aren't survivors at all. They're in purgatory.

  3. The survivors have been abducted by aliens and they're now being studied in some sort of outer-space laboratory.

  4. The survivors have crashed into a prehistoric island (a la "Jurassic Park") where ancient creatures roll through the forest.

  5. The survivors have been abducted by the government and are being studied in some sort of tropical island laboratory.

  6. The survivors will eventually meet up with seven wacky castaways whose wayward boat crashed on the shores of the "Lost" island. Hijinks ensue when Kate hooks up with Gilligan and Sayid and the Professor engage in an invent-off.
Not to toot our own horn or anything, but almost all of these theories have been debated in Filmfodder's "Lost" Forum. Wait. I guess that is tooting our own horn. No matter. Stop on by and add your thoughts. -- Mac

  1. If your post contains spoilers -- or even hints at spoilers -- add ***** SPOILERS ***** to the top of your comment.
  2. Your post will NOT immediately show up if you post any URLs. Because of ongoing spam issues, I need to manually approve comments that include links. This sucks, but it's the only solution at this time.
  3. Super-long URLs screw up the page. If you post one of these, people will get very angry at you and really, no one wants that. The solution is easy. Go to and create a mini URL.
  4. Do not post under multiple identities and then have inane conversations with yourself. This kind of nonsense will get you banned from the blog.
  5. Do not post in ALL CAPS FOR YOUR ENTIRE POST. In netiquette, all caps suggests you're screaming. In etiquette, it's lame. All-caps posts will be deleted.
  6. Please scan through previous posts to see if someone has already addressed your theory or comment.
