It’s eerie and thrilling watching this, seeing the old sets again — the Dharma village, the temple, the Orchid station, the jungle.
At least I think they are the real sets. They seem too realistic to be computer-generated or to have been recreated. But if they are real, I have no idea how the fans got in to film there.
While seeing the old places was thrilling, the storyline, at first, didn’t seem too promising. Then, at the end, the character says something that was so good, so right, it gave me a moment of chills. (At last! A LOST ending that satisfies!)
You really have to watch this all the way through.
Here, from the talented editing knife of Sophie (aka xSoppySofax), is a little drama, spliced together entirely from real LOST footage, which shows Sawyer and Ana Lucia as lovers — and all hell breaks loose when Ana Lucia becomes jealous of Kate.
Here’s another video that was featured in the montage of fan-made videos shown in this summer’s Comic-Con. While some of the humor here is too violent for my tastes, I’m glad the video was honored at Comic-Con. It’s part of a popular long-running series, LOST: What Will Happen Next?, and many people believe that the fan-made series, with its shaking action figures spouting snarky dialogue, was the inspiration for the official ABC LOST Untangled series. So it’s nice to see ABC turn around and give it a nod.
A short excerpt of this first video was featured in the fan-made video montage shown in Comic-Con. Here’s the whole thing. It’s a brilliant, funny, manic recap of Season 2, set to Weird Al Yankovic’s “Alternative Polka.” The video was made by Robert Montjoy, aka CapnBob.
The previous year, CapnBob had made a video recapping Season 1 to the tune of Weird Al’s version of “Bohemian Rhapsody.” While this one didn’t make Comic-Con, it is my all-time absolute favorite fan-made video ever. Did I mention how much I love this video? Okay, then. Carry on, carry on:
This next video isn’t LOST-related, but just because I can’t get the song out of my head now, here is Queen with the late great amazing Freddy Mercury singing “Bohemian Rhaposdy” at the Live Aid concert in 1985:
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.
