We already have a Lost major questions thread. Let’s leave that one for the purpose of keeping track of the questions.
Use this thread to ask about or explain our acronyms and other insider jargon in the threads.
(idea and below psot from Eats Crayons)
- TCM = Tree Crusher Monster
- Adam and Eve = Two bodies found in caves
- Redshirts = generic survivors like Steve and Scott and the drowned woman
and I propose (for issues like the Voice of the French Woman or ‘whoever was on the island 16 years ago’)…
- MIPUM = Mysterious Island Person of Unknown Motives
So that MIPUM can be generically employed for things like “How did the polar bear get on the island? Maybe it was brought by a MIPUM for an experiment.” Or random speculations like “Oo, maybe there is a mastermind MIPUM and it’s all like the Island of Dr. Moreau.” Or “the French Woman is a MIPUM.” Or “perhaps the TCM is a machine built by the MIPUMs”. Or “maybe the MIPUMs are aliens from outer space!” Or “maybe there are no MIPUMS.”
Anything else we need?
Any thing about the eps should go in the individual ep threads. Qs about the major plot points go in the Q thread.
Box any unaired spoilers. Otherwise, reader beware: SPOILERS!!!
