It has apparently been confirmed that Lost will return on January 21st with a huge three hour premiere. It is going to be a one-hour clip show followed by the first two episodes of Season 5. Awesome. Lost will also be moving back to a Wednesday timeslot. Only two and bit months to go.
One of the hidden Easter eggs on the season 4 DVD is a short clip of Damon Lindelof talking about the power of the island. He says that the way the island is reaching out to find Jack could be likened to how Mr Fantasic might use his super-stretchy arms to reachout and grab a cup of coffee from another room.
I bought the Lost Season 4 DVDs a couple of days ago, and the first thing I did was start working my way through the bonus features. One of the features, titled “The Definitive Flash-forwards”, was something that I’d been tempted to have a go at myself. Basically its all the flash-forwards put together, in the correct order and presented as an episode of its own. It runs for almost an hour, it looks like they trimmed some of the flashes down a little, and it would definitely make the flash forwards make more sense for anyone who had trouble piecing it together themselves.
So I neglected posting about the seventh and final test from a few weeks ago, but since several people have arrived at this site looking for the info I thought I should oblige and post it. The test was titled the “Honesty and Integrity Test”, and in reality it wasn’t a test at all. As those following along with the previous tests probably know there were a number of “cheats” revealed to make solving the tests easier.
Another test was released earlier in the week, again its just a series of 10 multiple choice questions. A ‘cheat’ was found early on, which allows you to get every question correct, and I’ll be honest if I didn’t use the cheat I think I might have only got one out of ten right. You can find out more about the quiz and the cheat here. Its also been announced that the “volunteer testing” ends October 7… maybe then they might feed us something more interesting than multiple choice tests.
Titled “Numeric Projection Evaluation” it was just a series of number sequences which you had to complete. The majority of them were really simple, like 1,3,5,7,?. There were a couple I had no idea how to work out, so I skipped them thinking I’d get a second look at them. Nope. Since the test was timed there was no real chance to google the answers either. Not that it matters. Kind of over the tests, I want something more interesting.
I’ve noticed that quite a few people end up at this site after typing a LOST related question into Google, and since some of the questions seem interesting enough I’ve added a new section “Lost and Found” where I’ll pick out some of the questions and answer them (assuming I know, or can find the answer). Got a question you’d like to see answered? Email me!
Another 10 multiple choice questions, this time more like the sort of questions you might expect in an IQ test. I don’t know if the questions are random or not, might take it again to see if I get different questions. There was also a video which mentioned that we are about half way through the “volunteer assessment program”, and according to Lostpedia there will be 8 tests in total. Not sure what happens after that, but hopefully something interesting.
Referred to as the “Dexterity and Attentiveness Evaluation” the third test involves moving a Dharma logo around on the screen to avoid colliding with four spheres that are moving around on the screen. The longer it goes on the faster they move and even with the cheat/glitch that was found to allow you to change the position of the logo to quickly avoid collisions, I still have managed to get to 100 (the maximum score). I probably just need more sleep.
Just took the second ‘test’ in this year’s ARG. This one was just a series of 10 multiple choice questions (apparently random). The quiz was timed, and they don’t let you know how well you do in the test either. With the aid of Google you could probably get all 10 correct, but since it was being timed I couldn’t be bothered searching for the answers and made some educated guesses instead. Favourite question was the last one I received, “The answer to this question is:” A: A, B: B, C: C or D: D. Quizzes are fun and all but I’m looking for something a little more interesting.
