LOST Theories So you think you know some secrets of the island? Maybe you can explain everything. If it's original and you can back it up, we'd love to hear it.

The Lost Experience (where are those threads?)

This ain't Bonanza. The entertainment value of the experience is no longer limited to what happens between 8 and 9 PM (soon to become 9-10 I hear) every Wednesday.

My point is that the means for the intended disclosure of information is no longer limited to a one hour episode format. DVDs, "official" web sites, and the more conventional media all are now tools for those behind the entertainment to spin their creative magic, and to produce an overall experience.

Maybe I am ascribing too much to them, but I am doubting that there is much of anything the TPTB say or do, in whatever medium, whether constituting information or disinformation, which is not intended as an integral element of the "experience." As such, and in my mind, such disclosures would not constitute spoilers.

What's a spoiler?

What isn't?

In the heyday of this Forum's Theories and Speculation subforum many a battle was fought over what could and could not be used for purposes of posting and supporting someone's thoughts regarding the mysteries playing out in LOST's broadcast episodes.

The above quote is from a post on September 5, 2005, in one of those spoiler skirmishes. Although evidencing a certain naivety regarding just how effective the LOST show runners would be in expanding the scope of the show beyond the weekly broadcasts, the post is nevertheless remarkable for its early use of the phrase "The Lost Experience" to describe the multi-media avenues developing for delivery of things relating to LOST and its mysteries.

Months later the phrase appeared in a more official fashion, used by TPTB to describe various non-broadcast entertainments dealing with the LOST story.

A decision was made in this Forum to keep discussions of the broadcast LOST separate from those relying in whole or in part on material gleaned from The LOST Experience or, as it became known, TLE. A separate subforum was created for TLE.

Now that LOST has completed its run, and the "spoiler wars" are no longer (and Homer is not looking), the decision has been made to bring the TLE threads back into the T&S. All the former TLE threads are now to be found in this subforum.

Those which previously were to be found in The LOST EXPERIENCE THEORIES can still be separately searched, utilizing a "tag search." Each of the former TLE threads has been tagged with the tag "TLE Theory".

For your convenience, you can obtain a sorted list of all the former TLE threads by clicking HERE.

Re: The Lost Experience (where are those threads?)

TLE was only ever considered to be "spoiler" material by this forum. It is right that it should finally have its place along with all the other Lost stuff.

Yeah, the spoiler policies were insane. In their defense, no one knew how little TLE would be featured in the actual story.

and my poor Apollo theory was the first scapegoat/ casualty of TLE/"spoiler" war, thus beginning the act of segregation.

Well, look at the bright side.

At least it wasn't a good theory.
