Re: Hurley & Ben Spin-off?

So who would be the other characters?

Maybe taking place about 20 years in the future...
Ben & Hurley are there

Other characters would of course include

Ji-Yeon

Aaron

Walt

Miles (even though Hurley can talk to dead people, Miles seems to have a different take on it)


One question though -- would Hurley be more in the open about who he is? Jacob was fairly hidden form the others...but Hurley doesn't strike me as wanting to be so reclusive. How would he live among the people? And how is Ben going to live a non-manipulative life?

Re: Hurley & Ben Spin-off?

And will everyone want a drink of the water so they can be immortal too? That's what would happen if Hurley came out.

Re: Hurley & Ben Spin-off?

I think the Sawyer/Miles cop show spinoff would be awesome, but watching the scene with Linus/Locke in the teacher's lounge I realized that this is the show I want to see. Just an hour each week of these two guys talking about stuff. I'd watch it.

Season one story arc: Should they get a new coffee-maker for the teacher's lounge?

Seriously, both the characters and the actors were so pitch-perfect that I'd watch them in just about anything.

I would watch "Watching Paint Dry" if it starred Emerson and O'Quinn.

fair enough, but not a Lost sequel. after-MASH and STAR TREK ENTERPRISE come to mind when I think of a Lost sequel. Almost makes me want to cry

I was thinking about this. It's a combination of the writing and the acting that makes it so watchable for me. For example, I probably wouldn't be that into an Admiral Pressman series, because there's not much complexity to the character we saw in "Pegasus." He's just the usual rigid authority figure. But these characters have depth; combined with the actors' take, it makes them good enough to watch in "Watching Paint Dry."

Still, probably better to hang up their gloves while we're still interested, as opposed to after we're not.

Wait....so that water was the fountain of youth all by itself?

I figured it was something about the current protector offering water to someone.

Did Jacob's mother give him water or wine?

i thought when Jacob did it to Jack, he had mysteriously turned the water into that special wine.

When Jack gave Hurley the water, the water was still dirty, Jack didn't say any special incantation, and he had lied about taking back the protectorship from Hurley (so i assumed the procedure was fake as well).

I wouldn't be surprised if Hurley did turn the island to Fantasy Island.

That's the impression I got. And maybe there isn't any official "protector". Maybe someone just keeps watch of the island and uses the water near the light to live a long time. Anything else is probably just song and dance.

I still like Miles with Ford. Can't top that.

The first thing Hurley did as the protector of the island was bring the Globetrotters to the island.

Re: Hurley & Ben Spin-off?

Just saw a quickie article saying the complete series set will have a 12-14 min. extra scene, an epilogue featuring Hurley as protector. Apparently Emerson mentioned it in an interview. That would be cool.
