'Lost' has thrown a sheep at you
I talk about the Zap2It's Guide to Lost Facebook group group a lot here on the blog. Why? Because it's a great way to continue the discussions we have here, plus offers a forum for lots of Lost topics that simply can't be covered here. There are discussion groups, opportunities to post links, The BTRWRTH Gallery, and most importantly, over two hundred members of the loyal Zap2It readership.
That's right, over two hundred. 205, to be exact. So it's time to set a new membership goal: 250 by the time Season 5 airs. I propose dividing this into a further sub-goal: 225 by Christmas. So if you read this blog but haven't joined yet, please do! If you have friends who like Lost, make sure to encourage them to join. Come January, there's going to be a full-on Lost assault with my very own version of Cerberus: the blog, the Facebook group, and my Twitter feed.
In order to spur on new membership into the Facebook group, I have something special for you all today. Inspired by this McSweeney's list, I humble present all four seasons of Lost as a series of Facebook updates. Major props to my wife for helping construct this list with me. Enjoy!
