Lost, Explained on Post-Its

If you're as lost as I am when it comes to Lost, here's a kid who explains it all clearly. With Post-Its.



Last night on American Idol, Dane Cook got Kanye'd by Ian Bernardo during a tribute to Simon Cowell. I can't make this stuff up.



Just a reminder, Bret Michaels is definitely back and in effect. On Idol.



Art Linkletter, the man who inspired kids to say the darndest things, passed away yesterday at the age of 97. Here he is talking to Larry King about aging and his life.



TV soundtracks sure make a difference in how a show feels; here are a few extreme remixes, including Lost as a sitcom and Different Strokes as a spooky drama:



Also!

... Here's what some folks thought were the best moments of this worst season of American Idol.

... And here's a little more Linkletter love.

... That new AT&T; commercial, the one with all the orange cloth, totally ripped off world renowned artist duo Christo and Jeanne-Claude.

... Love Firefly? Confess your devotion to the show and win this fancy book.

... Turns out that TV writers were pretty twisted this season.

... Get your post-Loser dose of Jillian Michaels with this interview about her new show.

... MTV's newest series about a well-endowed high schooler may have been inspired by this Upright Citizen's Brigade sketch.

... Adam Lambert's ensembles for his new video are part Burning Man, part Liberace.

... This news reporter shows just how easy it is for prowlers to break into your car. (Spoiler: It's not so easy.)

... If the cast of Jersey Shore is still relevant in 2014, will they do the half time show at the Superbowl?

... First Hawaii Five-O, and now Charlie's Angels. Here are a few pointers for those considering reviving the classic.

... Why go outside this summer, when you've got so much TV watching to do?

Lost in post its... awesome! I used to be a fan of the show and then my interest faded away but in the back of my mind I always promised myself that I would go back and watch the full thing to see where they were going with the show and he totally saved me years of my life.

Wow, Alex actually did the impossible. He actually explained Lost in a way that made perfect sense. And the Post-Its were a nice touch.

gahhhh that was a horrible season of lost! I am so disappointed! It felt like they were just trying to make sense of everything they did and were not trying to make it interesting at all!

They never said that if the Light goes out that people cease to be good, it just say's that it goes out 'everywhere', implying death; same with MIB leaving the island and Jacob describing that he was the very essence of darkness and Widmore confirming that if he leaves everybody else on the planet would cease to exist.



Light was never confirmed to be the source of all goodness, it was just a representation of Life, Death and Rebirth.



He also implies that because Jacob can't harm his brother that he's going to have to find people to do it for him. Jacob's original goal was never to harm MIB but to bring people to the island to prove him wrong about everyone being corruptible.



In the finale Jacob made Jack the protector so there was somebody now designated to protect the island.



Jack also doesn't 'sacrifice' himself to turn the light back on persay. He was already stabbed before hand by MIB.



And in the post-it note not everybody visiting the church scene was a candidate

I like the Lost vid, specially when the guy says "Lost isn't about the story, but about how the story is told". I completely agree.

OMG I loved his post its on Lost. I love how he said the MIB would get off the Island and "take all his evil with him."

I don't think that all of the evil that the guy was talking about was just the MIB. I think that the island and the light and its water and energy were keeping evil, corruption, or hell at bay through that cork in the island. The energy and cork kept the evil out of the world and when it was taken out, hell began to be released from the hole left open after the cork was taken out. Just my theory.
