Ny Post Review

Thanks to Lisa for the heads up.

THE big secret of “Lost” is finally out.

After four years, the mystery of “Lost” is revealed in the first few minutes of this Bandar Ceme season’s much-anticipated fifth season debut, Jan. 19.

If you think you already know too much about what’s in store, stop reading now.

At bottom, “Lost” is about time travel. That is what rescued the show last season from two seasons of go-nowhere stories.

The stories began to flash forward – and the focus moved past the romantic triangle of Jack, Sawyer and Kate.

The upcoming revelation will lay to rest years of Internet wrangling and instantly settle about a million fevered questions between dedicated fans about what the heck has been going on this whole time.

Without revealing details, the remote island so integral to the lives of the castaways is home to what a very important scientist on the show calls “virtually unlimited power.” And the “power” has been harnessed, quite haphazardly, for time travel.

“You have no idea how difficult it would be for me to explain this phenomenon to a quantum physicist,” well-meaning super-scientist Daniel tells Sawyer, the island’s loveable marooned scoundrel who has remained unhappily confused and shirtless since last season.

Time travel this season appears to have replaced flashbacks and flash-forwards.

Instead, while watching memories of the past or events in the future, chunks of the entire cast are sent skipping through time, like a needle on a vinyl record.

Of course, since this is “Lost,” even with the big reveal out in the open, there are only a million other questions left unanswered. (After all, the show still has two years before its agreed-upon finale.)

For now, the story seems to have turned on itself. For at least part of the new season, the folks on the island don’t know where or – more specifically, when – they are.

The action jumps between the handful of people who escaped the island last season, only to find themselves much worse off for leaving, and their friends who are still trapped on the time-warping island.

Like the classic 1937 Frank Capra film, “Lost Horizon,” the cast of “Lost” finds itself struggling to get back and set things right.

Hangman 2

Update: 00:00 And we have a winner! My source is VERY impressed and as such may do 1 more before the premiere on the 21st seeing as how good everyone was. He says his next one will probably be 10 times harder!

Update 2: 23:10 The letter S has been revealed (Congrats it revealed the most!) and a new poll posted. This is most likely the last letter revealed tonight.I need my beauty sleep  My source is VERY impressed and as such may do  Hangman 2

Update 2: 21:30 The letter T has been revealed (Congrats it revealed the most!) and a new poll posted.
Update 2: 18:40 The letter C has been revealed (Congrats it revealed the most!) and a new poll posted.
Update 1: 15:40 The letter M has been revealed (Congrats it revealed the most!) and a new poll posted.

After all the great feedback from you about the last hangman, I thought we’d run 1 more before the Premiere on the 21st. This is from another source who thinks he can make this one a bit harder (even I don’t know what the text is). When we get closer I’ll put it behind an “Are You Sure” button.

Here is what he has told me.

1) It’s one long run-on sentence with no punctuation.
2) There are NO “X”‘s or “Q”‘s in the puzzle
3) He will supply me with the letters for the next poll every 4 to 5 hours.
4) He has started us off with the letters P and Y

Small Song Snippet

Thanks to Daniele for the heads up.

Clark’s “Downtown.” Now there’s another one to add to that list: “Shotgun Willie” by Willie Nelson.

Where and when the song is played and who listens to it I won’t say but, as the song goes, “You can’t make a record if you ain’t got nothin’ to say.”

Much like all uses of music, the song is very effective and quite eerie. There is also some very significant symbolism when it’s played that viewers will only fully appreciate on multiple viewings.

Thanks to GregDean for the video and Lyrics

And the lyrics…

Shotgun Willie sits around in his underwear
Bitin’ a bullet, pullin’ out all of his hair
Shotgun Willie has got all of his family there

You can’t make a record if you ain’t got nothin’ to say
You can’t make a record if you ain’t got nothin’ to say
You can’t play music if you don’t know nothin’ to play

repeat 1st verse

Well, John T. (Fours) was workin’ with the Klu Klux Klan
The six foot five John T was a hell of a man
Made a lot of money sellin’ sheets on the family plan
