Fairy Tale Lost

posted by Momo Fali on January 30, 2008
Once upon a time there was a plane crash.

Oceanic 815, broke apart and fell onto an island in the south Pacific; also known as
the Island of Beautiful Plane-Crash-Surviving-People.
The Beautiful People amazingly found an enormous food supply, walkie-talkies, guns, strange tunnels and hidden rooms filled with static-laden televisions and big syringes. But, on the downside they also found polar bears and a big, black cloud that mysteriously kills people.

All the while, there were numbers everywhere.

These numbers4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42.
And, if you think they don’t mean anything, that’s because they don’t mean anything.

But luckily, or unluckily, depending on your perspective, there were others on this island. Others who were crazily enough called…

The Others.

As nice as you would expect people named The Others to be. They did bad things, like kidnap and gag the Beautiful People, who were then taken to cages where they had to do pet tricks for fish biscuits.

Alas, the Beautiful People could not be held down! They schemed, planned and talked about being rescued by Penny’s boat. Only it was NOT Penny’s boat.

Even though it wasn’t Penny’s boat, people still showed up to save them from The Others, and the polar bears, and the big black cloud.

No, not those people, but some other ones.

But, when one of the rescuers saw the Beautiful People he said, ”Rescuing your people? I can’t really say it’s our primary objective.” Ruh Roh!

Boys and girls, I would like to tell you that this fairy tale ends well and that the Beautiful People lived happily ever after…but, I can’t. As much as this fairy tale has sucked me in…I can’t tell you how it ends, because unfortunately I’m still LOST.

    What a perfect layout of the past seasons! You summed it up perfectly. I am LMAO at the Baywatch picture. I’m so glad to see someone is excited about LOST as I am. don’t forget to watch tonights recap.

  • Josi

    Wow, you have right here made that show so much clearer, you ought to offer to do some of the writing cause I think the official writers are smoking something. I became irrevocably LOST in the middle of last season and am no longer interested cause it makes me feel to dumb. So, when it’s all over you can tell me what happened, K?

  • Amy

    Oh man, Baywatch, HILARIOUS!! I am hopelessly addicted to Lost! Can’t wait til tomorrow night!

  • Ok, Where Was I?

    I am sooo excited about it starting again finally–pathetic really. But I’ve got a horrible memory and your photo of “not penny’s boat” brought back a little of it. I need to go catch up.

  • Nola (www.nolanotes.com)

    Oh, you little tease!!! Can’t wait for it to start again!

  • Mr Lady

    I saw that first picture and, I kid you not, I lost my breath.

    I have a Lost problem.

    I had never seen one single episode util last fall. My man got me Seasons one and two on DVD. I watched them in less than one day.

    It’s crack for moms.

    As soon as I type this, I am going to finish the laundry and scrub the bathrooms because, as of Thursday eve, I am lost. I’m preparing for the END.

    This is quite possibly my favorite blog post. Ever. I love it. So funny, so accurate… So confusing to anyone who looks upon it and says “WHAT???” because they don’t know…

    but I know…

    And I can’t wait for tomorrow!

  • Tara R.

    No Bay Watch Rescue…maybe Gilligan will save the day…

  • Amy Turn Sharp

    I am so pumped for this tonight
    my tivo is set and ready

  • holly

    awesome. but i am hooked like a crack-addict, AND i don’t get it until way after you state-side people do. unless i cheat with the internet.

    which i do. mu hu ha ha ha ha.

    but each new episode makes less sense and hooks me like a bigger crack addict. DAMN YOU LOSTIES!!!!

  • meleah rebeccah

    I toad-ily need to watch this show

  • Sandy C.

    One more day!!!! LMBO at the baywatch pic…. 🙂

  • Karen

    Can’t wait!!!! 😀

    Thanks for the timely reminder. 😉

  • Huckdoll

    Brilliant! You have successfully convinced me to get into this show. So many have tried and failed. Awesome! Thanks for sharing.

  • Tot's Mom

    I caught a few scenes here and there and I was LOST! So, the show has lost me as a fan as well…

  • Avery Gray

    Ugh. I gave up. It was all just a little too confusing for me. I like to have things tied up with a nice little bow at least every once in awhile. Is that too much to ask?

  • bmg

    That’s the best post. That’s just got to go everywhere! I mean, whoever is interested in the show, should see it. What a riot!

    Love, love, love the Baywatch twist at the end. You crack me up…


  • Caffeine Court

    Where Gilligan and Skipper there too?

  • PG

    hey, look at that. Not all that hidden really – but I am an easter egg!

  • Christine

    the baywatch pix was completely hysterical. damnation woman you are funny. pls dont stop

  • Stella

    I so wish I could get into LOST the way I was TOTALLY into Baywatch but I just can’t catch the wave….

  • Angie

    LOl! YOur interpretation is hilarious… and oh so true! I haven’t been able to keep up. I tried, really I did, but there is so much STUFF to know and remember and… I just gave up. I suppose I could rent or buy all the past seasons, hunker down with all my supplies (popcorn, soda, bedpan) and spend a weekend (week) just catching up. But then my little one would think I was LOST. And I probably would be. I’ll settle for catching up with your blog;)

  • OHmommy

    I know, I know…. but still I am so excitied to watch it tonight. Can’t wait!!!

  • Maria

    I decided that I would just get it on DVD when it came out all at once and do an entire show marathon.

    I appreciate the summary – I think I get it a bit more now. 🙂

  • Candace

    OK, I get it. I need to start watching this show!!

  • Candi

    I need to rent the past seasons to understand what in the world is going on on this show. I am so LOST myself.

  • wornoutwoman

    LOL…ahahaha! My DVR stopped recording halfway through last night. I about threw my tv through the wall today!

  • Melinda Zook

    Love, love your synopsis!!! I keep thinking that too, when I am not going to be lost???

  • Heather

    ACK! Me too! How ridiculous is it that I am so sucked into this show and yet I’m developing a growing hatred for its utter ridiculousness.

    Tttoday, people! Get to the point already!

  • Quirkee James

    Not only do I love that show and I’m also LOST, I’ll be LOST with you for another 2 years! It will be interesting to see how it all goes down by 2010.
