Season 2 Update 1

Hope everyone enjoyed the premiere full of all the hidden numbers!

I wanted to preface this update by saying THANK ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR E-MAILS. I got over 150 emails after the premiere so I cannot respond to each and every one of them - but they are all appreciated. What I do when updating is I watch the episode first, and find all the ones *I* can. Then I check my email for all the ones I may have missed and give credit to those who found them. Many of you e-mailed me helpful findings, but I was able to find them myself before I checked my email. Please don't think I did not want to credit you.

To find the updated list for season 2 make sure you click the season 2 list on the left column of the site. New season, new list! The season 1 list will remain as an archive and will still be updated if new things from season 1 are found.

...you've gotta...maaaaake your own kind of musiiiiic... :)

Offseason Update 15

Executive Producer Damon Lindelof was in the E! Online chat tonight, and had something to say about the numbers!

From Luv: How did you come up with the specific numbers for Hurley?

Well, that is a big secret, and we are not going to reveal it. I think there is a lot of interest in what the numbers mean and how we came up with them. But what's amazing to me is that we think we're being very clever and hiding those numbers all over the show, prior to the "Numbers" episode, and already I know there are Web pages that have gone up that bust us on every single one that we've ever hid, and they find ones that we didn't even intentionally hide, ones that are in sort of the production design of the show. The only number was always sort of a key number was 23, and anybody who knows anything about Robert Anton Wilson or any of his writing can read into that what they will. That's an important number in terms of the scheme of the show.

Offseason Update 12


Damon Lindelof on Lost's magic numbers:

“How far out we thought about the numbers is irrelevant to the fact that they landed in a way that we never, ever imagined. They were always going to be an incredibly important part of the island mythology, and all I’ll say is the first three episodes right out of the gate, you’ll have a much clearer understanding of not what they mean but what they do.”
