Comic:  “Now that LOST is over…”

About this comic

Been a watcher of LOST since day one…just wait to you hear what I thought of the way they ended it. Which you will hear soon…on something you probably don’t expect.

Anyway… Today’s comic was a fun way to think of Smokey and his need to continue his career after his successful stint on Lost.

By the way, THIS is how the show should have ended.

    LOL

    awesome one :D

  2. Mizzat says:

    Hmm something we probably don’t expect? Maybe your bringing back ELR like you talked about on Diary of a Cartoonist!!!!

  3. KD says:

    Oh please bring back ELR, I’ve been having withdrawl! :)

  4. Mercator says:

    I was disappointed. I even watched the pre-show and Jimmy Kimmel, which to me had more insight on the end than the show did!

    I also learned that maybe Terry O’Quinn played Locke one or two seasons too long… (The knife obsession is a little unnerving).

  5. Jaramide says:

    Yes bring back ELR please. I got a ton of shows where I can listen to Scott and Brian (Scott seems to be in every podcast produced now) But I’m experiencing a major O withdrawal.

  6. Ronin says:

    YES! ELR BACK! I miss it so much…. resorted to going back and listening to your REALLY early shows. I thought the ending was…. okay… not incredible, just okay. I think they should have just extended it a season and closed up all the loose ends. It was a good ending considering how many loose ends they had though…

  7. Norbert says:

    What? ELR back? Hell Yea!! Holy crap! You should reunite and bring everybody back, including Andrew! Oh man, that would be awesome. I miss his high-screeching laugh.

  8. Bearman says:

    They couldn’t do that ending. That was pretty much how St Elsewhere ended.

      I remember reading somewhere that something like 90% of all television connects to Tommy Westphall’s ‘dream world’. For all we know Lost is just another part of his dream.

      I actually have three of these and while they do alipmoccsh the task, it is not without some caveats. First, they definitely need to be on cat6 cables. I ran from my dvd player to my TV at 20ft over builder installed cat5e the cables of which are probably not the same length and going directly to the TV it had multiple black outs and white screen splotches. But once I connected it as dvd=>HDMI Over Cat 5=> Receiver=> TV, the receiver cleaned up the signal so that there were no longer any more blackouts and everything was fine. Now for another one of the runs, it is 40ft-45ft. For this one, I just forgot about the Cat5e and put in new Cat6 cables which definitely made a difference. Going directly to the TV, there is only a cutout perhaps once every hour to hour and a half. Once I put a receiver on the other end of this one, I’m confident that the drop outs will cease like they did on the first one. The last one is on cat6 cables going for about 20ft directly to the TV. This TV doesn’t have any drop outs at all. For those interested, the receiver is a Sony HT-SS2300, the DVD player is the Sony 400 DVD mega changer and the TVs are Insignia and Samsung. Also of note is that I did try some of the lesser priced HDMI over Cat5 wall plates and they did not complete the handshake so these items seem to be very device dependent.

    I am a proud member of the “never-have-watched-an-episode” club. I just don’t enjoy non-interactive entertainment.

    • Punkrawk Bbob says:

      yet… here you are on a website reading webcomics…

      Lost was interactive though – That was the fun with it. Talking with people afterwards about theories and possibilities and “Did you catch that?!”‘s . It really was a great thing to be a part of.

    I’d like to see ELR back but without O. I find him unfunny, arrogant and far too full of himself. There I said it!

  11. velt says:

    Please bring ELR back.
    I loved the final season.

    • Esmeralda says:

      Right here is the right webpage for evroyene who would like to understand this topic. You realize a whole lot its almost tough to argue with you (not that I actually would want to…HaHa). You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic that has been discussed for years. Great stuff, just excellent!

  12. danielbln says:

    Never watched past the first episode way back. Maybe I’ll stock up on junk food, take a week off and catch up.
    Oh, and please bring back ELR!

    Lost lover from day 1, but I do believe this video from Collegehumor completely sums up my feeling on how it came to an end. I really wish they would have followed the awesome, nerd-fueled plot lines they teased us with or at came to some sort of a better conclusion.

    P.S.
    Please bring back ELR. It was one of 3 podcasts I listened to regularly (Extra life, skeptics guide, and American life) and I miss it.

  14. Yo says:

    Bring back ELR!! We want to hear more of O’s tales of near death experiences.

  15. Traci says:

    Count me in on the vote to bring back ELR…not only do I miss O like crazy, I also miss hearing all 3(+) guys’ opinions on everything…movies, tv, etc. Never realized how much I would miss it!

  16. JoeMcAwesome says:

    Aww, dude this comic was awesome.

  17. BryanDavidWilliams says:

    I love it! Its ended vague and disjointed as it started but I loved it all.

      It’s not clear to me who are the project mganaers to whom you refer, or that matching funds (from where?) should be required for non-wage costs.If you’re thinking of current local government mganaers, I would not want them creating projects because of this program. If the local government wants to do a project, they should do it regardless of the existence of a JG, and it should be justified and funded like all their other projects.I have in mind existing organizations already doing the projects, but struggling to do more for lack of volunteer labor. If they are properly vetted, I’m not worried about giving them funding for the overhead of the additional JG workers and activities.As for matching funds, remember we are talking about a program to be funded by a monetarily sovereign government but carried out by monetarily non-sovereign entities. They have not the option to simply spend more money, they must have an income from somewhere else, either taxes in the case of a local government, or donations in the case of a non-profit. Requiring them to (net) spend money to implement this program surely will reduce their willingness and ability to participate, and more so when funding is harder to come by, which is when the program is most needed. Matching funds is a pro-cyclical idea, tending to defeat the effect of a counter-cyclical program. Independent audits would be a better way to monitor for fraud, and as a side effect would eliminate any requirement for public disclosure of the names of JG participants. The auditors should be paid by the Federal government, not by the auditees, as is the common practice in commercial audits, so as not to duplicate the conflicts of interest in that system.

    Awesome comic!!
    As to the ending of LOST – I believe it couldn’t have ended any better!
    Perfect ending to the best TV show ever made.

    LOST, you will be missed!

  19. Contrapaul says:

    Great comic. I totally loved the finale. I know people still want their weird and hardly plot altering questions answered, but I couldn’t have been happier. Makes me want to watch season 6 again right now- since we “get it”.
