Recap of Last night's episode:
 
"Walkabout"  
Air Date: 10/13/2004  
 
We are in Locke's dream as the show opens and it's moments after the crash. As his eye opens, we see the experience from his perspective. Chaos rages around him as he very cautiously looks down to his feet. We see him wiggle his big toe — Good, everything works.  
 
Back in real time, Locke's dream is interrupted by Vincent barking. In fact, he's waking up the entire camp. He won't stop barking at the fuselage and when Jack and the others listen closely they can hear something rummaging around in there. But that can't be, everything in there is…dead. Sawyer? Nope, he's right behind Jack. When they shine a flashlight inside, two glowing eyes shine right back at them. Uh oh…
 
Three squealing beasts charge out of the wreckage and tear through the camp. As they disappear back into the jungle, Locke is able to determine what they are —Wild Boars. They've been attracted by the bodies that have been baking in the fuselage for the last 4 days. Something has to be done. Bury them? They wouldn't stay buried, not for long anyway. Jack makes the only call he can — The bodies have to be burned.
 
But, as usual, just as one problem is solved, another rears its ugly head. They're out of food. It's all gone. And just as panic begins to set in, Locke steps forward with his own brand of problem solving. They can hunt the boars. What are they supposed to hunt with? The case of knives Locke checked into the luggage compartment. "Who is this guy?"  
 
In FLASHBACK Locke gets a cryptic phone call from someone who calls him "Colonel." Of course, he's in the military! But we soon discover that isn't true at all — Locke is just another cubicle jockey with an active imagination.
 
Back on the island, Michael is getting ready to go with Locke. Walt wants to come, but Michael manages to communicate with Sun well enough to convince her to watch his son until the hunting party returns. Meanwhile, Sayid has a plan to try and locate the source of the French Transmission using homemade antennas to triangulate the signal. Kate agrees to help him and tells Jack of her plan before setting off with Locke and Michael to hunt for boar. Back at the fuselage, Claire is beginning to collect the personal effects of the dead for use in a eulogy during the cremation. She asks Jack to be the one to give it, but he doesn't want the job. Claire decides to do it herself.  
 
Boone remarks to Shannon that one of the survivors, Ruth, has been sitting by herself way down the beach. He's pretty sure she hasn't eaten since the crash. When Shannon tells him to butt out, Boone reminds Shannon that she would starve without his help. She vows to show him she can take care of herself.  
 
Deep in the jungle, Locke has found the boar trail. They're close. He sends Michael and Kate out to surround the beast, but it turns on them and charges. Michael is gored in the leg and as Kate helps him up she calls to Locke to see if he is okay. "I'm fine, Helen, I just got the wind knocked out of me." Who is Helen?
 
In FLASHBACK, we see Locke enjoying an intimate conversation with "Helen" over the phone. He has a surprise for her — he finally saved up the money to go to Australia and take that authentic aboriginal walkabout. And guess what? He bought two tickets. Sadly, we learn that Helen doesn't share the same feelings for Locke as he does for her.
 
Back on the island, Kate agrees to help Michael limp back to the beach, but Locke is determined to bring down that boar. Kate tells him he can't go out there by alone. Locke disagrees. "Don't tell me what I can't do."  
 
Back on the beach, a hunter of another sort has found her quarry. Shannon flirts with Charlie and mentions how much she would like a fish. Charlie is only too happy to catch her one…as soon as he can learn how to from Hurley.
 
Jack has made his way over to Rose and tries to get her to open up to him. After some time, she does and tells him that, even though he has not been found, she believes her husband, Bernard is still alive. She agrees to rejoin the others. Meanwhile, back at the fuselage, Claire has found an envelope with Sayid's name on it. He opens it and we find a woman's picture inside. Sayid can't seem to take his eyes off her.
 
On the way back to the beach, Kate stops to climb a tree and attach the antenna. But when she is up there, she sees the monster knocking down trees in the distance and drops the antenna, breaking it. And the monster…is heading straight for Locke.
 
On the beach, Sun is teaching Walt about natural substitutes for toothpaste when Michael and Kate return. The others learn that the hunt was unsuccessful and worse still, that Locke is probably dead.
 
When Jack is making the final preparations to the fuselage, he sees something — wait -someone, off in the forest. When he chases after him, he runs smack into Locke, who has somehow managed to survive his run in with the monster. And that's not all — he brought back a boar with him.  
 
As night falls, the fuselage is ignited and the names of the dead are read in memorial to them. Michael congratulates Locke on the hunt and asks him if he got a look at the monster. Locke tells him he didn't see anything.  
 
But as we get one more glimpse into his past, we learn that Locke is keeping a secret — one that must be seen to be believed.

My suggestion would be to start a letter writing campaign to AXN or one of the other big providers over there and ask for the show to be aired.  Physically written letters sometimes have a big impact, as we saw with our letter writing campaign to renew Amazing Race.

Get Lost: The Mystery Solved!
by Ben Katner TV Guide
 
 
Is it just us, or is watching ABC's plane-crash smash, Lost (Wednesdays, 9 pm/ET), a little bit like driving on the New Jersey Turnpike? You never know where the heck it's going to take you, and yet you can't escape it, either. In any case, while we may never find our way on Garden State thoroughfares, we can make sense of the trippiest series since Twin Peaks. Consider, if you will, the following scenarios to explain the weird occurrences on the ultimate survivor island, then click at the bottom of this story to vote for the option you find most plausible.
 
The survivors are all dead. Think about it! Where else but in heaven could an individual walk away from a plane wreck looking as yummy as Kate (Evangeline Lilly) or Boone (Ian Somerhalder)? Plus, only divine intervention would allow paralyzed Locke (Terry O'Quinn) to suddenly walk. On the other hand, would even a vengeful God trap sinners with a tree-shaking beastie, not to mention obnoxious hothead Sawyer (Josh Holloway)? Let's contemplate a variation on the theme...
 
They're in purgatory. That's the ticket! Maybe Jack (Matthew Fox) isn't the Dr. Nice Guy that he appears to be. Lord knows his fellow beachcombers are a mixed bag of misanthropes and mischief-makers. So perhaps they are all stuck together, cluelessly working toward an understanding of some highly personal life lessons. Bratty Shannon (Maggie Grace) must see that using people is wrong; druggy Charlie (Dominic Monaghan) must begin to just say no... you get the idea. And the quick-vanishing man in the suit? Why, he is to purgatory what Della Reese was to Touched by an Angel — a kind of celestial overseer.
 
They're in outer space. Yeah, yeah, it's a mind-blowing proposition, we know. But it's not out of the realm of possibility. What if some alien race decided to Xerox Earth? They'd want to see how close they'd come to an exact duplicate, wouldn't they? So, to test their prefab world, they "import" a bunch of the natives by knocking their plane out of the air. Gradually, the busybody ETs would figure out the same thing that their unwitting guinea pigs are: Something is amiss. That's why there was a polar bear in the tropics; the Martians knew there were such creatures on Earth, they just didn't quite pinpoint where they belonged. This may also be why Locke was able to ditch his wheelchair; the pseudo-atmosphere in which our gang now reside may be slightly altered, allowing for miraculous feats of, in this case, an old guy's feet.
 
They're in Jurassic Park. We give creator J.J. Abrams way more credit than to seriously think he'd tear a page from another writer's blockbuster. However, if he somehow found a way to isolate his crew on a prehistoric isle, letting them in the back door so that neither they nor the audience knew what to expect, well, that prospect might be too tempting to resist. In addition, short of a guest appearance by the Jolly Green Giant, it's going to take a creature of T. Rex-ian proportions to keep us from being disappointed by the eventual revelation of the monster in the brush.
 
They're part of a government study. Cue the X-Files theme. This is obviously the kind of conspiracy about which Mulder lived to theorize. A disaster from which nobody should've walked away... an island nobody ever heard of... a shady character as sharply dressed as the nefarious Cigarette-Smoking Man. Yeah, this has "Made in the U.S.A." written all over it. Perhaps the G-men want to see what effect all that violence in TV and movies has really had on people. (They wouldn't be disappointed, either: There've been fisticuffs and gunplay nearly every day.) Or maybe the whole downing of the plane was orchestrated to rub out Kate, who isn't the criminal we're meant to think she is but a fearless spy who knows too much. On second thought, forget the X-Files theme; cue the Alias opening. There may be a crossover coming...
 
They're about to meet seven other stranded castaways. All these weeks, we've been thinking we're watching a new drama. As if! When our heroes make it to the other side of the island, we learn that we've been duped into watching a sitcom and that there will be hilarity galore once the likes of goofball Charlie and ornery Sawyer start mixing and mingling with a certain skipper, his first mate and their gaggle of ill-fated tour-boat passengers (among them, a millionaire and his wife, a movie star and... you know, the rest). Silly as it is, we're kind of partial to this outcome, if only because we expect the Professor will have a much easier time fashioning a two-way radio out of coconuts with the help of Lost's resident Mr. Wizard, Sayid (Naveen Andrews).

Secrets of Lost in TV Guide
http://www.tvguide.com/tv/coverstory/
 
Lost might have easily been MIA by now. The new ABC drama's concept — plane-crash survivors fight to stay alive on an eerily remote island in the Pacific — seemed too gimmicky to generate sufficient juice for a weekly series. But leave it to J.J. Abrams, the dizzyingly inventive architect of Alias, and partner Damon Lindelof (Crossing Jordan) to create a genre-bending, character-driven thriller that, in five short weeks, has managed to become TV's most addictive new drama. Suddenly, anyone worth his watercooler is buzzing about Lost's world: What crime might feisty fugitive Kate (Evangeline Lilly) have committed? How exactly did Locke (Terry O'Quinn), a paraplegic before the doomed Oceanic Airlines flight, regain the use of his legs and become the island's lean, mean, wild boar-killing machine? Is Jack's (Matthew Fox) drunken, demanding dad really dead? And what is that unseen, malevolent monster that made mincemeat out of the plane's pilot? "We know," Lindelof teases. "And we promise by the end of the first year, the audience will know at least a little more." The Lost league may be cryptic, but that didn't deter TV Guide from digging up juicy show secrets. — Shawna Malcolm
 
 
Matthew Fox has something in common with Richard Hatch.  
"He likes to take all his clothes off," Dominic Monaghan (Charlie) reveals of his costar, who's been nicknamed "Foxy" by the cast. "Foxy is kind of free and easy." Lilly vividly recalls the first time she saw the former Party of Five star au naturel: "We were shooting the pilot. The cast had had a few alcoholic beverages, and he jumped into the ocean at, like, 5 am. It's like, 'Um, should I be seeing this?'" Fox, 38, makes no apologies for his naked ambitions. "We're [shooting] in Hawaii," he says with a laugh. "It's conducive to skinny-dipping. And I'm totally into people just being cool enough to be naked."
 
 
Don't expect these castaways to waste away.  
"The reality is, you're not going to call up Jorge Garcia [who plays Hurley] and say, 'Lose 150 pounds over the course of the season,'" Lindelof says. "Tom Hanks took off months to [lose weight] for Castaway. And he was paid $20 million to do it." (And the Lost cast is earning, uh, nowhere near that.) In an effort to make the actors' regular weights seem more realistic, expect to see the characters routinely finding food. Plus, producers say each episode will represent only a day or two, which means that even if 22 episodes air this season, a maximum of 44 days would have elapsed by the Lost clock. Monaghan, however, is game for growing an unruly Hanks-style beard: "Not to have to shave, and I've still got a job? Fantastic!"
 
 
Inspiration comes in many forms, including Maury Povich.  
The title of Charlie's band's fictitious hit, "You All Everybody" (which Monaghan sang a snippet of in the first episode), comes from a nonsensical rant uttered by a female audience member on an episode of Povich's tabloid talk show. While brainstorming ideas for lyrics days before shooting last spring, Abrams remembered the phrase and deemed it perfect for illustrating how disposable the band's music should sound. But to his surprise, a fleshed-out version of the song, which singer-songwriter Jude recently recorded for use in a flashback concert scene in the Nov. 3 episode, "is actually pretty great," Abrams says. "My dream is that we get the song put on iTunes and it becomes a big hit." He's joking. We think.

LOTR Hobbit Lost in Hawaii
by Daniel R. Coleridge
 
All the world knows Dominic Monaghan as Merry Brandybuck, one of those brave li'l hobbits from the Lord of the Rings film trilogy. Now he has another major hit on his hands with ABC's Lost, the suspense drama about plane-crash survivors stranded on a desert isle where something even scarier than Jerri Manthey is roaming the forest. The 28-year-old Brit plays Charlie, the junkie rock star, whose tragic backstory is revealed tonight at 8 pm/ET. Yes, Charlie finally gets his very own flashback episode! Just before jetting off to Lost's Hawaiian set, Monaghan sat down with TV Guide Online in Hollywood, where he lives during his downtime, to give us a juicy preview.
 
TV Guide Online: LOTR took you three years in New Zealand. Now you're sequestered in Hawaii for Lost. When do you see your family? Or are ya on the run, like Kate?
Dominic Monaghan: Yeah, kind of! But my parents are pretty much like me. They move around quite a lot. Right now, they're living in Madrid. They're not gypsies, but they're traveling folk who like to move about. As kids, we moved every few years to different places in Europe. I think that's what's made me the type of guy who enjoys picking up his life and moving somewhere else. It's no hardship for me living in new countries and getting used to different cultures. It keeps me alive and happy.
 
TVGO: Seems like a good philosophy, since actors are journeymen who don't always know where their next paycheck's coming from.
Monaghan: That's totally true. If you get too connected to one place, you get in trouble because as soon as you move, you lose all those things you relied on to make you happy.
 
TVGO: What do the words Charlie writes on his taped fingers mean? Which words have we seen so far?
Monaghan: The first word we've seen was "fate." The second word was "late." Charlie's an artist and a songwriter, so he expresses his feelings by writing stuff down.
 
TVGO: Charlie's faux band, Driveshaft — are they pop, rock or death metal?
Monaghan: They're generic, poppy rock that's not really changing the world. Charlie likes to think he's close to The Verve. In truth, he's probably closer to a British band called Ocean Colour Scene. They're a one-hit wonder; their biggest hit was "The Riverboat Song."
 
TVGO: Is Charlie secretly connected to anyone else on the island?
Monaghan: At this point, I don't think so, but you never know. Right now, that doesn't seem to be the case. He's a loner on the island. I think every single one of those people are connected to each other in some way, though.
 
TVGO: Why was Charlie in Australia... and were his band mates on the plane?
Monaghan: No, they weren't. You're going to find out [tonight] why Charlie was in Australia. He went to see his brother, who lives in Sydney, and offered him a business proposition.
 
TVGO: Who's scarier: LOTR's Gollum or Maggie Grace's hateful Shannon?
Monaghan: Right now Maggie's character is pretty scary, but you're gonna come to really like her. The reason she's being the person that she is, is she's gone through some hellish trials in her life. Hopefully, you'll ultimately have a lot more sympathy for Maggie's character.
 
TVGO: Who's prettier: Gollum or Maggie Grace?
Monaghan: Are you kidding? Maggie Grace is beautiful. But I've got a lot of love for Gollum. I really feel for the guy. He's as tortured by the ring as everyone else, and he's one of the more human characters in the entire trilogy. Human beings by nature show weakness. Characters like Aragorn, Theoden and Legolas, who are supposedly humanlike, are the most unlike humans, whereas Gollum wears it on his sleeve. I have empathy for him.
 
TVGO: Back to Lost. You've finally got your own flashback episode tonight!
Monaghan: What you know of Charlie, up to now, is that he's got a drug addiction problem. You're going to learn the genesis of where, why and how it began. We'll also learn more about Charlie's fears on the island. He becomes more well-rounded after this fifth episode because the audience will understand the substantial issues he's been dealing with in life.
 
TVGO: As an actor, it must be very flattering to have the spotlight on Charlie this week.
Monaghan: It is, and up until this point, I didn't feel Charlie had really contributed on the island. By the end of the episode, he saves the life of someone on the island. Even while he's going through this terrible cold turkey, Charlie proves to himself and the others that he's capable of coming through. He's moving toward the person he'll become when his drugs run out.
 
TVGO: You all have amusing theories on what that thing in the forest is.
Monaghan: My theory is that it's an African elephant with about 35 cats attached to his body with Scotch tape. The cats are scratching him and he's rampaging through the jungle, trying to get these cats off. [Cocreators and executive producers] J.J. Abrams and Damon Lindelof said I'm not too far off from the truth! So I think I get special brownie points for nearly hitting the nail on the head.
 
TVGO: Clearly this elephant/cats scenario is the work of a criminal mastermind.
Monaghan: That's essentially what J.J. and Damon are!

I agree, Rhune.  Someone on another board also likened this show to Twin Peaks.  It DOES have that jagged mystery about it, doesn't it?!
 
This show is so addicting, I can hardly wait for each eppy!  I love the flashbacks that give you a glimpse into each character's life leading up to that fateful day on the plane.

I lurv Dominic Monaghan.
 
I'm so glad they rounded out his character. I was afraid they were just going to keep him on the periphery so they could use his name as a draw.
 
He's very very good in this role. Keeps it from being one or even two dimensional.

Nod, he's got a plum role in this series.    I read an article the other day where he said he'd done some traveling in time off with Matthew Fox (Jack) and that people would get nervous when they would see the two of them together on their flight...lol
