First, the Bad News ...
SciFiWire.com reports that LOST is steadily losing viewers with each episode this season. Honestly, I thought this past week's episode was much better than any since the season opener, so maybe the trend will begin reversing itself?
Read all about it here then come back and let me know what you think.
Are you more/less pleased with the show? Are you ready to abandon the island? Why/why not?
And now the Odd Theories ...
i09's post discusses in some detail the three types of time travel we've seen on LOST. In support of one theory the blogger cites a book referenced in the show: “Note that in one episode, we see one of the Others reading Stephen Hawking's A Brief History Of Time, and it's open to a page on black holes.” Ah, the literary references ... how I love them!
There are some great comments with theories on why/how the island is disappearing. One theory is that the nuke blows up the island at some point in the future, which is why it isn’t there anymore.
The Origin of the Four-Toed Statue:
This blogger *really* went to the far reaches of strangeness to come up with this theory. It has to do with Daniel going WAY back in time and making the island what it is today. Um ... yeah ... I'm not really on board with this one ...
Do you buy into any of the theories? Which one, and why? Or maybe you have your own theory you'd like to share?
