"Lost" and "The Third Policeman"?
Posted by barry

An alleged spoiler...

20/02/06: Update on the connections between Lost and the Third Policeman here »

Allegedly, in the 3rd episode of the forthcoming "Lost" season #2, the book "The Third Policeman" by Flann O'Brien "will be prominently featured at a key moment." It "was chosen very specifically for a reason."

Hmm. You can probably guess why.

This is the source of the rumour, here.

The Emmy-award winning television show Lost will, in the October 5th episode, feature Flann O'Brien's novel The Third Policeman in a way that will purportedly provide key insight into the show's omnipresent mystery and uncertainty. Lost, with an audience of 31 million viewers, is one of the most popular and talked-about shows on television. Since the story was first reported by the Chicago Tribune on September 21, Dalkey Archive Press has sold thousands of copies of the novel. The book has also reached the top 100 on Amazon.com.

Lost is basically a re-telling of the story in the book.

the lost story, up until the end, serialized as it was, was pretty intelligent and entertaining. I really didn't appreciate the messages they tried to portray in the ending of the TV show, but I haven't read the book. Consider my commentary under-educated hearsay.

I'm watching it online, just started but almost done with season 1. It's pretty interesting so far.
