Over 50 contributors, comprising of established reviewers and academics, award-winning sci-fi authors and lay writers, ask and answer all your questions in this ultimate eBook compendium to one of the most successful TV shows ever.
The Take2 Guide to Lost … a definitive resource of over 400 articles from an incredible community of like Lost-lovers.
Due to its masterful storytelling, suspenseful execution and Rorschachial intonation, Lost generated a tidal wave of online comment never before seen for a television series.
We’ve combed through the nooks and crannies of cyberspace and fashioned some of the best and brightest posts and pieces into this treasure trove of deliberation.
We have gathered and sorted these online articles into a variety of chapters: 'Overture,' with a sampling of posts about the series from various vantage points; 'Cast and Characters,' with entries on all the major characters and some fun bits about the past and future roles of the major actors; 'Mythology,' which includes posts on the Smoke Monster, DHARMA, the Frozen Donkey Wheel, and how religion was reflected on the series; 'Philosophy,' ranging from scholarly but accessible posts on the philosophy and philosophers referenced in the show, to a post on how the series affected one writer's personal philosophy; 'Structure,' including discussions on the flashback/forward/sideways, the DHARMA stations, and a physicist's explanation of the science of time travel; 'Interviews' of the showrunners and writers; and 'Ending,' a largish chapter on the breadth of views about the brilliant and controversial series finale.
All of that is followed by the most substantial chapter of this book, the 'Episode Guide': every episode listed in order, with its essential information, not one but two reviews, interesting tidbits and much more, for each hour of the series, and even coverage of the never-aired Epilogue, 'The New Man in Charge.'
