Official ABC promo with time running backwards

This is the promo that they showed on Tuesday after the enhanced version of “The Incident.”

Lots of interesting things are going on here, including Locke rising up to the window, Charlie going into the station, and the two pieces of the plane coming together.

Alternate timeline, here we come.

Very cool fan-made video about the alternate timeline theory

Have you seen this video “Second Chances” by Sl-LOST, part of their In preparation for LOST Season 6 series?

I love it. It gave me chills.

It starts off with footage from LOST, with a few scenes mixed in of the dancers from the wonderful British Season 1 promo directed by David LaChapelle.

Then, about half-way through this video, something very interesting happens. That’s the part that gave me chills. I won’t give it away. See for yourself:

Damon asks, “What if Oceanic 815 never crashed?”

Here’s another sneak peek from the Season 5 DVDs. It’s about Daniel Faraday, the Jughead bomb, time travel, and other Season 5 themes and concerns.

Listen, at the very end of the clip, where Damon Lindelof says:

We wanted to flirt with the idea of the erase button, of the do over. We thought this was a really cool place to bring the finale, which is, what if Oceanic 815 never crashed?

How much of a hint is that to what’s going to happen in Season 6?

Is it a hint that Season 6 really is going to be about an alternate timeline where Oceanic 815 will land intact in Los Angeles, as many fans already believe?

Or is this a bit of misdirection, to divert us from the writers’ actual plans, so that come next season, we will be surprised? When Damon says they wanted “to flirt” with the questions of Oceanic 815 never crashing, does he mean the kind of flirtation that will never be consummated?

The LOST alternate-reality videos from Comic-con

"Thirty years with a perfect safety record"

"Thirty years with a perfect safety record"

These are the three short videos shown at the 2009 Comic-Con LOST panel which appear to depict an alternate reality, universe, or timeline.

The Oceanic Airlines ad:

Hurley’s ad for Mr. Cluck’s Chicken Shack. “Ever since I won the lottery, I’ve had nothing but good luck.”

Here’s Kate on America’s Most Wanted. A different man, not Kate’s stepfather, was killed in Kate’s explosion.

(Reposted these to have them all in one place, for easy reference.)

Bumbershoot part 1: Sawyer’s hair versus Jin’s abs

Damon and Carlton may not be conjoined twins after all!

Damon and Carlton may not be conjoined twins after all!

Last week, three LOST executive producers gave a talk at Bumbershoot, a large annual music and arts festival in Seattle. Jeff Jensen, of Entertainment Weekly, hosted the talk with producer/writers Carlton Cuse, Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. (Was this the first time Carlton Cuse was ever seen in public without Damon Lindelof by his side? Perhaps they are not conjoined twins after all.)

A fan shot a 3-part 2-part video. In this first part, you can’t see much, but you can hear what they are saying. The LOST folks answered questions such as: Why isn’t there more sex? Why does Jack remind us of that annoying guy we used to date, who always had to get up early the next morning to train for a triathlon? In a battle with Sawyer’s hair and Jin’s abs, who would prevail?

They also showed the 3 alternate-reality videos that they had shown at Comic-Con. Carlton said there were “some definite clues that are embedded” in them. (The videos are the Oceanic Airways ad, Hurley’s ad for Mr. Cluck’s, and Kate on “America’s Most Wanted”.)

LOST Season 6 promo poster, shown at Comic-Con

When a fan first posted video on YouTube which showed the whole LOST event at Comic-Con, ABC asked that the parts showing the video segments played during the panel be removed.

Those segments are now showing up separately on YouTube. But they might get pulled too, so enjoy them while you can.

I think this is all of them, except for the one showing the winner of the theme song contest, but if I find any more, I will post them.

This is an ad for Lost University. Enrollment begins on September 22:

This is Mysteries of the Universe: The Dharma Initiative, a fake quasi-documentary TV show (a take-off on Unexplained Mysteries?) narrated in conspiracy-theory tones. It’s the first in a series, and ABC will be releasing more.

They revealed the promo poster for Season 6:

Here’s a montage of fan-created content, some of it very funny:

Here’s another funny one, Michael Emerson’s fake audition tape for the role of Hurley:

Here are two fake ads which, along with the Kate on America’s Most Wanted clip, seem to have come from an alternate timeline. In the first, Hurley appears as the owner and CEO of Mr. Cluck’s, a fast-food chicken place, plugging a new dish inspired by his “recent trip to Australia.” Best line: “Ever since I won the lottery, I’ve had nothing but good luck.” The other ad is from Oceanic Airlines (motto “Our skies lead to your destiny”), proudly proclaiming “30 years with a perfect safety record.”

This video, done in the style of the annual tribute on the Oscars to notable people who have passed away, is “In Memory of” LOST characters who have died. The longest tribute is to Charlie, which may very well be meant as a tease, if the rumors that Charlie is coming back are true.

The promo poster is from Lostpedia.

Kate on ‘America’s Most Wanted’

Kate on "America's Most Wanted"

Kate on "America's Most Wanted"

In this fake episode of America’s Most Wanted, shown at yesterday’s Comic-Con LOST panel, the show’s host claims that the night Kate blew up her father’s house, her father wasn’t there, but instead had sent his apprentice, Ryan Milner, to the house to lock up. It was Ryan, the host says, not Kate’s father Wayne, who was killed in the explosion.

What to make of this? I see three possibilities:

1. The video does not provide reliable information about the show — it is not “canon.” Comic-con videos have misled fans in the past, or

2. The writers led us to believe that Kate killed Wayne, but that may have been a clever bit of misdirection, prompting us to jump to conclusions that may not have actually been in the script. (Maybe someone who has a better memory than I do of the early shows can confirm if this is even possible), or

3. Kate did kill Wayne and there was no misdirection, but the America’s Most Wanted video came from an alternate (parallel?) time, one which we may enter in Season 6.

Video is by Jopinionated from DocArzt and TV Overmind.

Speaking of TV Overmind, I recently contributed an article there, about the hunkalicious Gilles Marini, of “Sex and the City” and “Dancing With the Stars” fame, who is now exploring a new talent: Gilles Marini Finds His Voice
