All day long I'm going to be posting Lost Fun Facts and fan lists...all leading up to the LIVE LOST finale chat at 7pm PST!
Alllllllright, now that I'm done rounding up my finale dinner/snacks (chicken fettuccine alfredo with garlic bread and strawberry wine, with S'more ice cream for dessert) I'm ready to post some fun "Lostie stuff"!
Top ten reasons why Lost fans are super cool (Courtesy of my Friend Angela)
#10: Instead of saying "This is the next to last episode of Lost" they say "This is the PENULTIMATE episode of Lost...but I am not sure it really felt like a true penultimate episode."#9 - We find religious symbolism in topics like time-traveling bunnies and monsters made of smoke.
#8 - We have our own encyclopedia.
#7 - We look for situations to appropriately ... or sometimes inappropriately use the phrase "Live together or Die Alone."
#6 - Our devotion does not waiver even when people make fun of us.
#5 - We can laugh at ourselves.#4 - Season Finale party plans would rival the Oscars
#3(with apologies to Rob Thomas of Matchbox 20) - We're really not crazy, we're just a little not well...we know, right now you can't tell, but just wait til after the finale and a different side of us you will see. :-)#2 - Unbridled enthusiasm. Yes, we really do realize that Lost is just a TV show, but to us, Season 6 is our "March Madness"---The Finale is our Superbowl... :-)
#1 Reason Why LOST Fans Are Super Cool: We support the second amendment only because we know that guns may come in handy. Cuz guess what? We might have to shoot a bear! And not just any bear...a POLAR BEAR. :-)
*In the original script Jack, at that time slated to be played by Michael Keaton, was written to die at the end of the two-part pilot episode.
*Matthew Fox, Dominic Monaghan, and Jorge Garcia all auditioned for the role of Sawyer.
*LOST had the most expensive pilot in ABC history.
