ABC Tells Viewers Not to Mind the Oceanic 815 Crash Photos at the End of ‘Lost’

May 26, 2010  •  Post A Comment

So those images of the Oceanic 815 plane crash that ran at the very end of the "Lost" finale? The ones that some viewers interpreted as meaning no one survived the crash and the last six seasons were a fantasy? Well, ABC executives want everyone to know that the images were added to help segue into the news and actually have no meaning, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.

"The images shown during the end credits of the ‘Lost’ finale, which included shots of Oceanic 815 on a deserted beach, were not part of the final story but were a visual aid to allow the viewer to decompress before heading into the news," an ABC representative said in an email to the blog.

The decision to place the eerie images at the conclusion of the show’s finale was just a "nostalgic, transitional touch" dreamed up by ABC executives, and not a plot point from the show’s producers, the article says.

  3. If you were paying attention, there were no bodies on the beach. I figured it was just pretty pictures to run the credits over. Some people read way to much into things!

  4. Without reading something into the series, the Man Behind the Lost Curtain would have been revealed long ago. And the show would have failed for being the flimsy nonsensical scattered tangential tripe that it is.

  5. Really nice post here – I don’t know why you don’t just get the most out of these tools whilst they are free.

  6. Now and then I’ll stumble across a post like this and I’ll recall that there really are still interesting pages on the web. ^_^. Thanks.

  7. Very good text. I’ve found your site via Google and I’m really glad about the information you provide in your articles.

  8. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose. store,best price,electronic,automotive
