    You're thinking of The Core with Hillary Swank. He played a computer geek in that movie too. Maybe he belongs on the boards with us!

    Ah, but maybe he IS on the boards with us! How would we ever know? Hmmm, maybe he's YOU, gracie! Or Canada Champ? Or Twiddler? Or me? Or....dum de dum dum... Qboots!?! Those of us who don't go to FORT conventions don't even really know each others' sexes, much less looks.
    I like to think at least one of the LOST cast takes his/her computer to the beach and browses FORT. Ah ha! This would explain how Qboots always catches the subtle stuff--Q isn't really 50 times more observant than anyone else, plus possessing file cabinets full of notes; nope, Q is actually there! I feel SO much better!

    In Hurley's first flashback they showed him watching TV when they revealed the winning numbers and his immediate reaction to that. But I also remember in that same first flashback episode that they showed his family in front of their house annoucing they were the winners with a plethora of camera crews. My question is, was Hurley's second flashback the period between him learning he was the winner and the media spectacle? I would like to think so, but it seemed, as much as anything on a tv show can, that the first flashback kept events pretty close together.

    Just curious.

    Hurley's two episodes featuring his backstory had two, albeit related, purposes which were relevant to the shows they were included within.

    In Season One, his flashback showed his lifestyle pre-numbers/lotto win, how he came to get the numbers in the first place, established that he used them in the lottery and won, and then the fallout of winning ... loss of anonymity, new house burning down, the box company investment being destroyed and many people out of work, the plane crash, etc. The message in that episode was that the "numbers were cursed". The time span covered pre-winning to post-winning and how he came to be on the doomed Oceanic 815 flight.

    In Season Two, the message we were to glean from Hurley's backstory was that "change is bad" and "change will cause people to not like him any more". The scenes in "Everybody hates Hugo" were clearly from a condensed time period starting at the moment he learned that he had won the lottery to the period prior to claiming his winnings when he was "outed' as the winner -- leading to his subsequent lifestyle change and ensuing string of bad luck.

    What I didn't understand was why HE wasn't excited about winning and why he was so fearful of change. He had no obvious reason to fear the future as his present was so dreary and bleak (bad job he just quit, living with his verbally abusive mother, no girlfriend, etc.).

    Well you have to remember, Hurley was in a mental hospital. For what, we still don't know. I think the answer to 'why does he fear change' and 'why was he in the hospital' might be related. So we're probably going to find out those answers either nearing the end of this season, or sometime in season 3.

    I agree with you and hope you are right that we will get some explanation. There are so many threads to this show that some are bound to be left untied at the end.

    I question, being so overly-fearful of change, would he be buying a ticket to one of the biggest life-altering experiences out there? That's the part I have trouble with.
    But then, when I start thinking about this show, I waaaay overthink it.

    Dude ... I don't think it's degrading to drool over Eliza Dushku.

    Josh Holloway is going to be in a movie next year called Hellion. Here is the link for those who are curious. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0435528/plotsummary
    I personally can't wait to see it.
