My wife and I are working our way through season 1 of Lost. We’d been meaning to check it out for a while now. In fact, the tip came way back in 2004 from friend and colleague Kathleen Gilroy. It’s cool not having to be a slave to the tv schedules on this stuff. The show’s really entertaining, I’m digging it. I have a theory here about the show, so stop now if you’re not into speculation. Here’s the theory: the survivors aren’t really survivors at all. Instead the island is a metaphor for some kind of limbo.
