    one more question
    when jack kate and charlie went to get the pilot, was everyone who was in the front in their seats? it seemed like there were a lot of empty seats there and more seats than bodies which normally isnt the case as there should be equal bodies and seats.
    i have to watch the pilot again.

    I'm no physicist, but I believe that in order for the front of the plane to be gaining speed, it would have to be going down nose-first. I reviewed some screen caps from ep. 1 and it is nose-up in the trees. It almost looks as if it were plopped down in the jungle. So I stand by my belief that if people could survive part of the plane being plopped into the ocean and part onto the beach, they should be able to survive being plopped into the jungle. The photos are so dark, I can't see if there are any passengers in the front section, save 1 dead man. Perhaps my mind filled in those seats with dead bodies. LOSTON..., Your point about the empty seats is a good one. I don't have the DVD, so please let us know what you see.

    Jflo - You make some good points.

It look to me like everyone in the vicinity of where he strapped himself in, died. And how did Cindy make it all the way back to the tail before it was ripped off??? She was up front trying to get Charlie out of the bathroom. They (Bernard too) were meant to survive regardless of where they were at the time of the crash.

    Woah, this is mind blowing. This would also mean the pilot was meant to survive - for a few minutes, at least.

    I looked at screencaps and only saw one shot with a person strapped in a seat, dead. But all the other shots were closeups of Kate, Charlie and Jack.

    just watched the pilot again.
    there were like 3 dead people there or so. no one else.
    maybe they survived and then taken by the others like most of taillies. or maybe taken by the smoke. you know i was thinking about the smoke... does smoke really leave a shadow?

    Yup. Anything that blocks out the sun would leave a shadow.

    if eko was smart, would he say what he saw and then have like locke explain what it could be? and then maybe they can dig undeground and figure out if its something magnetic.

    doubt anyone says anything to one another...well thats whats being shown to us. these group of people like to keep secrets from one another. (hatch, speaking english, past crimes/history, physical ability).

    nobody mentioned all those voices they heard in the jungle (sawyer, the tailies when AL shot shannon). or are we to assume they did mention it to one another and they'll deal with it later.

    also want to know if sayid told michael about the walt sighting (his and shannon's which led to her death...or is he still grieving about that and haven't mentioned it to anyone).

    did kate and sawyer mention to anyone else about the horse sighting.

    and what was mentioned recently, did anyone tell jack about the drugs, he might want some for medicinal purposes.

    and yeah, wonder if eko will mention anything to locke since it looks like they're bonding somewhat. these 2 are the same yet so different in many ways. i doubt charlie will mention it cause he just got rejected by claire.

    a lot of...did they do this and that????

    'Lost' strikes a chord worldwide By Adam Pasick
    Fri Jan 13, 12:53 PM ET



    "Lost," Disney's TV drama about a plane crash on a remote island, is proving to be an unusually universal hit as its confounding plot sucks in global viewers from Laos to Latvia.

    "The survivor instinct is universal," said Tom Toumazis, a senior vice president and managing director for Disney's Buena Vista International Television unit. "It's not set in a forensic lab in Vegas, or a police station in New York. The setting could be anywhere, any island, any plane."

    Disney bet big on the lavishly produced show, with an international cast and $10 million pilot episode that was the most expensive in television history. The plane crashes in the first moments, and viewers only learn about the back stories of the survivors through extended flashback sequences.

    The finale of the first season -- which posed roughly twice as many questions as it answered about the Island, the Hatch and the mysterious "Others" -- scored blockbuster ratings in Britain this week, with similar success in countries including Australia, France, Russia and Hungary.

    The rights have even been sold to Cuba, the subject of a decades-long U.S. trade embargo. An exemption exists for "informational materials" like TV shows.

    In the United States, the show returned from a six week vacation for a second series to pull in more than 20 million viewers, after a lead-in recap caught up fans on the ins and outs of the complex plot.

    And at a time when network television is in decline, "Lost" branched out beyond the airwaves with DVD sales, downloads through Apple's iTunes Music Store in the United States, and a slew of Web sites, blogs, podcasts and mobile phone video clips.

    "You have a loyal following that wants to digest it in all forms," Toumazis said. "It's a puzzle, and people like puzzles."

    Faced with a gap of several months between the first airing in the United States and episodes abroad, some fans have turned to illicit TV downloads. Australia and the UK, two of the biggest "Lost" markets outside of the U.S., are also among the biggest offenders for downloading pirated TV.

    Toumazis said it is too soon to say when Disney might sell TV downloads in other markets.

    "What we're doing is evaluating the success of the shows and the electronic downloading of the shows," he said. "We need to think very carefully about how it would affect our existing businesses and relationships."

    "Lost" is aired in the UK on government-owned broadcaster Channel 4, which has been at the center of a dispute between broadcasters and producers about who will control new media rights for services like TV downloads and video-on-demand.

    Yes, it eventually came to rest nose-up. But I doubt it just drifted gently down from the heavens that way. There was probably a fair amount of skidding, bouncing, rolling, etc. first.

    Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mr. Eko) is scheduled to be on Jimmy Kimmel next Wednesday. Although Kimmel has no idea how to pronounce his name. For that matter, neither do I.
