Ever wondered how you would survive if you were stranded in the middle of no where in some remote island? Ofcourse when the only traveling you do is from home to office and back, theres very little chance you'd get stranded in an island but when you watch LOST the thought does occur to you. Tom hanks managed to survive for four years (Cast Away), Anthony Hopkins was the only one who came out alive (The Edge). How long would you survive? More importantly if there were a bunch of you and you started a civilization, what would your contribution be? In Lost, theres just the right combination of people. You know theres exactly one engineer, one doctor and one pretty girl for the pretty doctor. What if that plane was carrying a bunch of doctors to, say some doctors convention in Australia?The show would then be called ER. haha. Anyway coming to Lost again, everybody is skilled, the best in the field.There is Jack:Surgeon, Super Hero, Saviour, Mr. Know it all..ok forget Jack, hes the result of an over imaginative script writer. But take Syed, soldier in Iraqi army and communication engineer. He is good at fixing stuff, he can even build radio transmitters out of airplane junk. Thats something. Lock, hes amazing with knives, can hunt, hes the food provider and hes got this 6th sense that will never get lost no matter how dense the forest is. (Again overactive imagination? ). Then theres the pretty girl, whats-her-name? She is umm, I am sure she is good at something. The Korean lady can practice Chinese medicine so that helps in the rare case that Superhero Jack fails. The fat guy built a golf course, some other guy can play the guitar. See? Everyone is good at something. What help would I be of? My education is no good, simply because I haven't learnt anything. Had I paid attention to my communication classes I am sure could have built those fancy gizmos Syed builds. Besides what good am I without a comp and internet connection? Damn, this is depressing. And I thought watching LOST would be a good change from watching Desperate housewives. At least the ladies at wisteria lane do not give me a complex.
