Wow, look at the hustle and bustle of activity here. Hello there Bob. It appears as though you are the only consistent poster here, I come back and check every so often to see if there is anything new.

1) I have begun re-watching season 6 this week.
2) I was/am one of those people who was disappointed in the finale, and the lack of answers provided (to the questions that most interested me.)
3) I believe I liked the time travel aspect and the island mysteries the most.

So as I am watching the episodes I still can’t shake one specific idea or topic about these characters or this show.

Reincarnation. It also bothers me that there probably will never be an answer or resolution to this either but…

So I have had the idea that the characters have always been intertwined and that there was something more there, I believe I may have even created threads in the past about it, or posted to those threads.

One thing that has stuck with me, well everything has, I have watched the damned series like 5x, was that book Jacob was carrying upon touching Locke, something like ‘Everything that Rises must Converge.’ I always imagined this as something, a spirit, aura, person floating upwards towards a conical peak where everyone converges. I never thought out if it was a spiral towards the top, or timelines or whatever, that part wasn’t important. It was more like, all of these reincarnations of people are now meeting near the top, the island, to protect it, destroy it, leave it.

And we have the Rainier-Canton van clue…

Anyways, I think the characters we know are simply reincarnations, or different versions. Perhaps this is how the numbers come into play, another time and discussion maybe. But to be brief and to the point here is what I think:

I think if you look at the characteristics of the people, what they stand for, you can see similarities between them. I also think there are slight physical similarities too but that is not what I base this on, but it helps.

Sayid and Desmond – both have long lost loves that they are almost constantly striving to re-connect with.

Kate, Ilana, and perhaps Juliet – strong independent women, self sufficient.

Walt and Michael (together) and Ben and Roger (together)- both boys were shot by people, both fathers struggled to protect/raise their children.

Claire and Rousseau – babies taken away from each, left alone on the island.

Sawyer and Lapidus – outspoken, strong willed, kind of sarcastic.

I think the list and comparisons could go on and on, Dogen and Jack for example. So there it is, the first theory in a while, let me know what you think. Bob T. Maybe list examples of similarities between characters that you see.

Christian? Richard?

The “Man In Black” is the latest casting addition to the FX Network series, based on the Eisner Award winning comic book series Powers by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming.

The series follows Detective Christian Walker, who was once a hero who has since lost his extraordinary abilities. As he and his partner, Deena Pilgrim, investigate crimes, they uncover the seedy underbelly of the caped set, such as a Superman like character being a sex fiend. The title is creator owned by artist Michael Avon Oeming and writer Brian Michael Bendis, who is widely known for his work in the mainstream Marvel Universe. The pilot will be produced by Sony and F/X with Karen Barragan (Rescue Me) on to co-produce. Justified’s Michael Dinner is expected to direct a script written by Charles Eglee (Dexter; The Walking Dead) who will both serve as executive producers as well.

Welliver joins as Triphammer, described “a genius and a narcissist,” and a mixture of Steve Jobs and Donald Trump. Triphammer is said to be a genius in his own right who has invented technology capable of giving or taking away super powers. It’s reported that if the pilot is picked up by the network that the role will recurring.

If you’re missing Ben, Hurley and Richard. Fear not! For they will soon be on our screens again! Albeit in three different shows.

Jorge Garcia will be appearing in Alcatraz. It is currently planned as a midseason replacement to air on Mondays at 9 pm in 2012 (according to Wikipedia). Alcatraz follows Rebecca Madsen, a police officer (Sarah Jones), and Dr. Diego Soto (Jorge Garcia), a “hippy geek” who is the world’s foremost expert on Alcatraz. Both will investigate the reappearance of 302 wardens and prisoners of Alcatraz in modern day, after their mysterious disappearance fifty years ago.

Nestor Carbonell will be appearing in Ringer. It will premiere on 13th September 2011.Twin sisters Bridget and Siobhan (Sarah Michelle Gellar) have been at odds and find that their lives are both unraveling at the same rate. Bridget is on the run from the mob and in order to survive she takes over Siobhan’s life after she mysteriously disappears.

Welcome to another J.J. Abrams-produced mystery island show. Alcatraz was one of several new TV series premiered at San Diego Comic-Con Wednesday night, and it was by far the standout.

The series centers around a mysterious event in 1963 that made 302 Alcatraz prisoners and guards vanish without any explanation. For some reason we don’t yet know, a prisoner named Jack Sylvane (Jeffrey Pierce) appears in present day Alcatraz and makes his way to San Francisco to seek payback from those who’ve done him wrong. It’s up to a spunky young police officer (Sarah Jones), assisted by a geeky Alcatraz expert (Jorge Garcia), to stop Sylvane, all the while dealing with a mysterious federal agent (Sam Neill) who clearly knows more about the Alcatraz disappearances than he lets on.

Alcatraz shares elements of other Abrams-produced shows like Lost and Fringe, and it’s also reminiscent of the under-appreciated USA show The 4400. But the show does more than just retread familiar territory. By the end of the pilot episode the Comic-Con audience was clearly wanting more from yet another J.J. Abrams mystery box.

The pilot for FOX’s new J.J. Abrams/Elizabeth Sarnoff (Lost) series Alcatraz screened at the San Diego Comic-Con in Ballroom 20 on Wednesday night and there was no way that IGN wasn’t going to stop by to check out what could be the newest “new Lost” series since the last time they tried to make a “new Lost” series.

Alcatraz is good, but not great. The episode doesn’t really pick up until the last third, and the rest of it, unfortunately, is spent showing us what we already know the premise to be. We know the show is about a group of prisoners that mysteriously vanished from Alcatraz 50 years ago so some of the suspenseful scenes — most specifically the opening scene — don’t have that much “umph” because it’s all stuff we knew heading into the show. After the initial flashback to The Rock and the discovery of a bunch of empty prison cells, we then follow Detective Rebecca Madsen (Sarah Jones) and Diego Soto (Jorge Garcia) as they investigate the death of a former federal agent. Sam Neill then steps in as a blunt, crotchety FBI agent with the very “FBI Agent” name, Emerson Hauser.
