    PSH, if you made it through season 2 you made it through the worst. Season 3 + 5 were amazing, and sadly only 1 more year is left.

    They *should* make an indoor roller coaster, sort of like The Mummy at USH, that takes place on the set where Millionaire used to be. It'd be perfect!

    <------ Hilarious!! and so totally true


    I'm a huge LOST fan and I have to agree with Data. LOST has the tightest and most seamless plotting I have ever, EVER seen in a TV show. Even though season 2 was really disappointing the first time around my roommate and I have made a tradition of re-watching the whole series before the new season starts (yes, I know we're sick, you don't have to tell me) and we realized after season 4 that season 2 had a whole lot of value that we didn't realize the first time. Hindsight gives it a lot better showing.

    If you mean Kate, Juliet and Shannon characters, then I'd agree.

    Ooooh
    I recently got into Lost and I LOVE IT.
    And I agree with Datameister and everyone else that has backed up Lost as being one of the best shows.
    Season six can't come here fast enough!

    I think this whole thread is interesting.
    Now all we need is a Smoke Monster character in the parks. ;]






























































    Yeah, just kidding.

    Oh my goodness...your description of the end of season 3 is so spot-on. That is quite possibly the greatest mind(freak) of all time. I thought season 4 was a little disappointing, but they brought back the awesome with a freaking vengeance for season 5. We're moving inexorably toward the end, and I think my brain will either explode or be elevated to a new plane of existence when the final secrets are revealed. Maybe both.

    I have to agree with Data - Lost as a whole has been nothing short of one of the greatest shows in television history. Season 1 was just superb. They "lost" their way mid-Season 2 and had a pretty flimsy first 6 episodes of Season 3, but the final scene of Season 3 brought them back full force with the biggest wtf you'll ever witness. The last 2 seasons have been full of awesomeness. The final Season 6 can't come soon enough.

    I don't remember seeing this when I watched the extras on the DVD. I'm pretty sure the show runners merely went on a retreat to DCA and did not get one iota of inspiration from the park.

    Let me guess...like everyone else in the world, you stopped watching about a third of the way through season 2? Because let me tell you, despite a few parts of the show that went downhill a bit, the show as a whole has one of the most fascinating and cohesive story arcs I know of in the television world. This upcoming final season will seal the deal.

    RocknGuitar...yes, just a little. :evil:

    And mycroft, as usual, you're making a lot of sense. I strongly doubt there was any connection between their meeting place and the ideas they came up with - Lost has absolutely no connection to the DLR. (Except for one explicit reference to Disneyland in the first season and the fact that many jungle scenes use some of the same background tracks as the jungles of Adventureland near Indy.)

    I think a distinction needs to be made here:
    Did they merely go to DCA and come up with the story while they were there? Or did they state that DCA inspired the story? There is a HUGE difference.

    I could go to DCA, sit on a bench and come up with a story that drew no inspiration whatsoever from the park. So DCA, most likely, didn't have anything to do with LOST other than that's where they were sitting when they came up with it all.

    Unless otherwise stated by the DVD.

    The similarity ends there. In one corner, we have a theme park that was built with no higher purpose than to make money on the cheap, and in the other we have one of the most inventive, intelligent, well-rounded, fun shows to grace the television screen.

    How fitting that a show with the title of Lost got it's inspiration from DCA.

    I was watching the special features on my LOST Season 1 DVD set and according to the documentary, the people who started the show originally got together and had a writers retreat at California Adventure and that is where they first invented the series, and laid out the story. Just thought that was a cool example of how the Disney parks can influence things like my favorite show. Anyone think that since Disney owns ABC, that they had the writers retreat there to get more exposure for the park when the DVD came out? Either way, I'd assume they all got at least free park admission, haha
