Top 10 Things I Hope We Find Out In Season 4 of LOST

Top 10 Things I hope to find out in Season 4 of LOST:

1) Whether Danielle is part of the same group that Jack radioed in the final
episode of Season 3. My guess is that she is.

2) What happened to Walt, if anything. My guess is that he’ll have been lost
at Sea, or will become “inexplicably” older.

3) What’s going on with the numbers 4 8 15 16 23 42? Hurley assumed that
they’re bad luck; I think they’re actually numbers that need to be repeated
in order to keep bad luck away. That would explain why the numbers were
being repeated over and over in the radio transmission that Leonard Simms
and Sam Toomey heard.

4) Whether or not the main characters’ fathers actually play (or played) a
larger part in what’s going on. I’ve thought since season 1 that Christian
Shepard played a part in Sarah’s miraculous recovery when Jack operated on
her after the car crash. I still think that whatever Dharma has in the
way of cures was something that Christian was using. Charles Widmore is
powerful, as is Mr. Paik. Widmore owns a construction company, the likely
company that built the hatches in the first place.

5) Whether or not the island is in a “slip stream” (for lack of a better word)
of time. The island is very hard to find, quite probably because it’s not in
the same time frame as the rest of the world. What better place to hide?
Remember, there is that issue of Jack telling Dr. Hammill to get his father
“down here” to see which of them is more drunk. Jack really couldn’t have
forgotten that his father was dead… Could he?

6) What the heck is Ben really working on? Is he really one of the “good
guys”, trying to keep whatever group is now coming onto the island from
exploiting whatever power the island has?

7) Who is in that coffin? Jack went to the funeral; Kate didn’t. Could it
have been Michael? Locke?

8) What’s really happening with Desmond? It appears that more people have
this ability, or are at least aware of it; especially after Ms. Hawking’s
discussion with him in the antique store.

9) What was the real purpose of the Swan station? Was it how the island was
kept hidden, or was the magnetic energy surrounding it used in some way by
Ben’s group?

10) Is John Locke going to end up being the “new Ben”? Ben sure seemed
freaked that John could see Jacob. I think everyone assumes that it was a
powerplay that Ben made to make sure he stayed in charge, and that might
be partially true. What if Ben realizes that John is dangerous in a way
that could be bad for everyone?

Only time will tell when (and whether) we find out the answers to these

What do you think? What do you hope is answered in the upcoming season?

Blu-ray players not future compatible?

Oh great. Just when it looked like the format wars have come to an end….

Turns out that Blu-ray players might not be “future compatible”. What does that mean? Well, in October of this year, a “new” profile of player will be available, and disc players in that support the Profile 1.0, won’t be able to take advantage of the Profile 2.0 features.

From Consumerist:

So here’s how it’s going to work: current players are Profile 1.0, and can play future hi-def discs but no bonus stuff. Profile 1.1 dics will include additional bonus material that won’t play on 1.0 players—these discs will have a “Bonus View” sticker. Come October, Profile 2 capability will come to the market, which includes Internet activity, but only on Profile 2.0 players—these discs will have a “BD Live” sticker.

Great, huh? Geesh.

Via Consumerist. and – New LOST websites!

There’s a new web game going on, and if you’re a LOST fan, you should be playing.

I was just watching the SciFi channel, and a “commercial” for Oceanic Air came on!

It said to go to I did. If you’ve been there before, you should go again. There’s a new message at the site.

After viewing it, go to There are some videos, and a couple of places to explore. I’ve gotten through all the material available so far, and I’ll be posting all the thing I’ve found on a special page tomorrow.

In the mean time, check it out!

Heroes: Powerless

As you probably know, with the writer’s strike going, most fictional shows are on hold. Reality shows are still rolling along. Anyway, some shows have done “wrap ups” before going back into reruns, and one of those is Heroes. The show’s season, which they call volume 2, was cut short and ended last night.

Spoilers ahead

It was a decent episode, but a little anti-climatic in places and surprising in others. The buzz before the show was that two characters were going to die. It appeared that one of those was going to be Maya, and it looked like the whole Maya/Alejandro storyline was going to end in a very “Nikki/Paolo we were just kidding about introducing these characters” sort of way (you LOST fans will know what I’m talking about).

That wasn’t to be, since Mohinder injected her with Claire’s blood. (Side note: I like the name “Mohinder”. Not sure why. It’s just fun to say. Mohinder. MohinderMohinderMohinder…. ahem…) So, we’ll be seeing more of Crying Maya.

More random thoughts, in no particular order:

Big trouble brewing for Claire now that Sylar knows her blood heals. Noah has a nice big target on him now too, since it looks like he was the one that killed Nathan. Sylar found out that someone injected him with something that caused him to lose his powers, and he didn’t like it one bit.

It looks like Peter’s mom, Angela, is still part of “The Business” and is working with Bob. For a guy that runs something like that, he doesn’t have a lot of staff. You’d figure that a mastermind running an organization like that would have more people around. Other than his daughter. If Angela is working with “The Business”, that could explain how she was able to survive in that alternate future where 90% of the world was dead.

Nice touch with the Popeye reference at the beginning of Volume 3 when Sylar got his powers back and tested them by willing a spinach can into his hand.

Sorry to see Nathan bite the dust, but Nikki’s character was just weird… never did like her whole storyline. Her “secret power” is that she’s got a split personality and can really kick people’s butts? Maybe it’s that she had this power and her mind couldn’t handle it, so it manifested that other personality. Whatever. It was pretty annoying.

Adam will be back, and he’s going to be really ticked off when he finally shows up. If I were Hiro, I would have put him about 300 years in the past (or better yet, the future), and left him in the same Japanese cemetary. Maybe under a nuclear reactor. Or a garbage dump. Definitely not an Indian burial ground though, bad things happen when you mess around with those.

5 Mistakes Made In Heroes Season 2 According to Series Creator

You have to give Tim Kring credit. In an article in Entertainment Weekly, he lists five mistakes they made in the beginning of Heroes season 2, and gives explanations for why he thought they were mistakes. You can follow the story link to see what he said about each of these, but here’s what I think:

  • – Not only was it too slow, it just dropped us into the story well after the events of season 1. I understand that was to introduce the character Adam in context, but there probably was a better way to do it.
  • Is every season going to have “world-saving stakes”? OK, technically, it was just to save a bomb from going off last season, but the deserted street thing was done last season… we want something new.
  • Specifically, he feels that Maya and Alejandro weren’t introduced properly. I disagree. They might have felt “disconnected” from the storyline as Kring says, but I don’t really think they are. Sylar was out in a remote area, is making his way back, and runs into these two people with powers. I thought it worked.
  • Boy, and how. I was beginning to think that Hiro was going to take over for Kensei and live out his life there, or maybe even bring back Yaeko with him. This, I think more than anything, made the beginning of the season seem like it dragged on.
  • – Agree on the Claire/West “love connection”, but disagree about Hiro/Yaeko. I think the Hiro/Yaeko thing worked, but West just seemed like a stalker.

Heroes: Cautionary Tales – Some Questions

Spoilers Ahead

Great episode last night.

I thought that Noah was dead for sure, and was surprised that he came back at the end.

I do have a few questions:

How long is it going to take for Noah to get out of that holding facility?

Did Bob get Claire’s blood because he knew he would need it for Noah later? Is Bob really the bad guy here?

Is the plague that takes everyone down caused by Sylar and Maya? Is Adam really working to stop that coming plague, or is he really just going after “The Company” and the last generation of Heroes?

Any thoughts?
