LOST AN ISOLATED COINCIDENCE.

Imagine a tropical island totally hidden from the rest of the world. This same island has everything: supernatural forces, a terrifying monster and polar bears. For many, the idea of such a place would seem silly. But for the millions of viewers who tuned in every week from 2004 to 2010 to watch the television series Lost, anything was possible.

The first episode of this programme begins with an airplane accident. ‘Oceanic Flight 815’ crashes and leaves its survivors stranded on a beautiful tropical island. The survivors are traumatised, but also thankful to be alive and hopeful that a rescue squad is on its way. Yet, as more and more days go by on the island, the survivors experience mystifying and supernatural events. These happenings make them question where they are and why they haven’t been found.

A prominent theme of the show is the way that it jumps through time. The storyline often goes from the present to the past, with flashbacks and insight into the lives of the characters. As time passes, the survivors build camps and find a water supply to sustain them. They also begin to hunt for food, and become suspicious of the possibility of a monster in the jungle.
