Based on some of the posts here I think you'd have different results.
If your contention was that LOST's supplementary materials added nothing, that would be different.

But what you contended (quite hyperbolically, as is your tendency) was that there was no such thing as a supplementary material that added a "deeper understanding" to its respective story. Which explains your vote.

I think you could probably find a few folks around here that would probably agree but that's a different, albeit more applicable, poll to the topic at hand.

FTFY. That's what we were specifically discussing weren't we? At least that's what I was discussing since we were in a Lost forum discussing the show. Because of that I don't think it's necessary to qualify what kind of supplementary materials we are talking about every time we talk about supplementary materials. The context is provided by the subject we are discussing (Lost) and the forum in which we are discussing it (also, Lost).

As I said - the way you worded this poll means it belongs in Community Polls since (as you agree) the poll is not specifically about Lost.
