what do we say to the god of death?: brightinsomniawatcher on July 16th, 2007 11:53 pm (UTC)
Jack reminds me of Ralph from Lord of the Flies, he didn’t really want to be the leader but because he had some many qualities needed in a leader he was ‘chosen’. When they made Jack the leader though they messed him up in a way, Jack can’t really handle pressure can he? I think in my personal opinion they should have maybe had a council, with Sayid (they would be dead without him), Jack (they would be dead without a doctor most of them) and Locke (because he knows nature/hunting/he doesn’t give a damn).

For the second point, considering that most episodes have some reference (title, songs with the novel mentioned, the whole surrealism to it all. That they are looking a way off the Island which is like how Alice is on a constant search for the White Rabbit and we know that *SPOILER ALERT LIKE OMG* like Alice with the flash forward that they are not happy/are still searching/*SPOILER ALERT*) we can be sure that they were rereading the novel when they were writing the script.
