I'm leavin' on a jet plane

Anyone seen Lost yet? It's an awesome show about a plane crashing and the survivors stranded. Awesome show, runs on ABC, don't think it's available in other countries just yet though. Dis cuss.


Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

I can't watch it, although I've heard it's awesome. School conflicts.

Ray jones is it called Land of the Lost? Cause I've heard they both seem similar, but that Lost is way more awesome than land of the lost.

I haven't watched it because to me it looked like most new shows, stupid. But some people have said that it isn't so bad and ABC has picked it up for another season evidently.


Go big or go home.

Oh, I forgot about this thread, after my post got eaten to it...weeks ago.

RayJones, the show you're thinking of is TOTALLY different. I did a little investigating. They just have similar names. Verschollen isn't on American TV (that I could find out about.)

I still haven't got to see Lost, but everyone is saying how amazing and good it is...from critics to my friends to radio talk shows hosts (this morning)

Wish I could see it (stupid night classes, stupid buses)

apparently TiVo +DVR would fix it.


Anyhoo, last night's episode was awesome, and the next one looks like I'm gonna be engulfed in a sweet river of suspensful awesome....er, joy?

It looked like a real hodge-podge of a cast to me. A bunch of people that never made it on their own really big yet but you recognized them all but can't place their names.


Go big or go home.

IT'S AT 8/7CENTRAL!



Plus the first episode of farscape got corrupted like halfway through, so I'm not so sure yet.

didn't they show the final farscape episodes last week....the peacekeeper thing...? or is there more? (i had to eat and missed a good portion of it..was po'd to find out that major spoiler--->

Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

First, Lost is an American production, NOT a German production.

Second, "Verschollen" is commonly translated "Cast Away" in English, not, "Lost". (The Tom Hanks movie "Cast Away" was called "Verschollen" in English, and www.variety.com/index.asp%3Flayout%3Dmipcom2004%26nav%3Dfeatures%2 6head%3Dfeatures%26content%3Dstory%26articleID%3DV R1117911354+Verschollen+RTL&hl=en&lr=lang_enVariety.com[/url] (note: Google cached page, otherwise you have to subscribe to read the article) translates "Verschollen" as "Cast Away".

Finally, I found an English review of "Verschollen".

Quote:
National TV - the horror, the horror
Tuesday, October 5th, 2004, lunch time by gibarian
I am in the unfortunate position to receive not more than four channels on TV. Two are national TV, one is a sloppily made private channel and the fourth is a sloppily made private channel, with a focus on Vienna. The private channels are sponsored by ads, national TV is sponsored by ads and the monthly fee virtually anyone in Austria has to pay. You’d think they’d be able to buy interesting stuff to show. But obviously, they can’t. The last monster they have decided to let loose on their unsuspecting viewers is called “Verschollen” (Cast Away), a joint production between Austrian national TV and RTL, known for its costly, high-quality productions. The story is simple: A plane crash somewhere in the south seas, 20 people survive and are stranded on some island. Now, you may think: Hey, that’s not so bad of a concept. And yes, theoretically, although it’s such an old idea, with good actors, a nice setting and a screenplay written by someone else than a ten year old, it could have been worthwhile. But, the production company decided against all that.

For one, the whole goddamn island is inside a studio. You’ve got a whole lot of fake rocks, fake palm-trees, one token spider, one token iguana and the best thing is….there’s no water. It’s a goddamn island, but there’s obviously a green-screen around the whole thing. I mean, if an actor or an actress, and trust me, each and everyone of those does not deserve this title, is seen in front of the sea, you notice a fine, white line between their body and the sea. So what kind of computer are they actually using for CGI? A Pentium I? With 133 Mhz, 32 MB Ram? Oh come one, it’s the 21st century, couldn’t they at least have used something resembling reasonable equipment. But hey, why should they? If I can assemble a crew of soap-style actors, put up a plastic island inside a studio, let the script be written by the producer’s three year old son (and use his computer for the effects) and then even sell it to the various TV-stations , there’s no need to change a thing.
That seriously doesn't sound like theAmerican "Lost" to me. In fact, just having watched the trailers for the show clinches it. "Lost" is filmed on an actual island, and there IS water. [And apparently, a polar bear?!] Also, it's definitely high budget, and has had rave reviews. And is being produced by J.J. Abrams of Alias (and two other people I can't remember). It's been called the "best new show of the season" multiple times.

Also, apparently 48 people are stranded in "Lost", and only 20 in "Verschollen".

edit:

I just found out that LOST is called VERSCHOLLEN in Germany. It is a different production all together, but the basic idea is the same.

Click here (http://www.rtl.de/videolounge/player...llen/start.php) to view a clip from the pilot. Only the distress call is in English, but you will be able to follow along.
Well, that explains it..."Verschollen" is a ****ty Germany "Lost" ripoff.

err.. yes yes my words exactly. ;D

hmm. or maybe someone sold a story twice.. you know.. like pop star idol get me out of here or like that .. and as i know rtl, they are hardly able to do a good show.

tjes. globalization is reaching for us.


nothing beats stargate though. but i'm afraid stargate atlantis will be crap already. it goes on air here next year, when they will continue season 7. SEVEN!!!! pah. they stop in the middle of a season. FREAKS! (well,.. either that or they recieved a payment from my girl .. )

I had always figured it to be a serious drama, not some sci-fi adventure, Land Of The Lost, Journey to the Center of the Earth - wanna be type thing. Cool.
