OK, who watched the latest offering from JJ Abrams Monday night?

Seems like he's trying to recreate that Lost vibe.

Hurley? Check

Same sound track? Check

A mystery on an island? Check

Time and/or dimensional travel? Check

People aren't who they seem? Check

Unknown "them" battling against each other? Check

OK, I'm in, who else?

Haven't caught it yet but definately plan on checking it out On Demand. Looks promising and hopefully he got the drift from the Lost backlash that if you're going to raise questions we eventually want concrete answers.

Lost remains my favorite show of all time. Nothing comes close.

To answer OPTs question, yes, it had too much of a Lost vibe. I'll stick with it for another week or two.

I don't recall anything "special" about them. Why, what did they do?

Very similar to the chains sound from the Smoke Monster

Starting at about the 28 seconds mark of this video and lasting about 5 seconds

That's about what I figured, that was a "Lost" kinda show. I'm glad I missed it. Those kinda shows drive me bonkers...I mean more bonkers than usual. ;)

I'll have to pay closer attention next week.

However, I'd guess that it was more a case of the smoke monster sound effects including something that sounded like the cage door rather than the other way around.

Besides, I always thought the smoke monster sounded like the invisible monster from Forbidden Planet. Here at a about the 2:00 mark (embedding prohibited)

If you think about it, that association does make a lot of sense

I guess I'm not with the rest of you on the Lost vibe....I get the similarities, but to me the show felt nothing at all like Lost. Not even close.

I found the first episode entertaining, but will await judgement before deciding to keep going. I'll probably catch all of this 'half-season' tho.

I went back and listened to the cell door closing...sounded like a cell door to me. I think OPT hit that one.

OK, this show is starting to grow on me a bit.

We now know what the keys are for, but have no idea what's behind door #1.

We know that the proverbial "they" did hold on to the people either just just after the "jump" (Hastings said he woke up in a hospital and was told his family was dead and it wasn't 1963 any more).

We know that when one of the 63's "jumps" it generates seismic waves, or triggers an earthquake.

We know that some of the 63's have been in our time for some period before the series started. (grandpapa, the two doctors, etc.)

Back in the real world, it seems some visitors to the island are going into restricted areas looking for stuff from the show.

So far there isn't much out there on the web about this show. I found this site, but there isn't much there.

This is another. It has more, but it seems to be the work of one person.

But since I have it on series record on the DVR, that question is moot
