Postby black bart » Fri May 26, 2006 8:54 am

Has anyone noticed the similarities between the TV series 'Lost' and J M Barry's 'Peter Pan'.

They are both TV series except for Peter Pan?

Lost

Postby black bart » Fri May 26, 2006 9:57 am

These are the clue's so far:

Hidden Island

Pirate Ship

One of the 'Others' carries a Teddy Bear.

There is a character called Hurley and in peter Pan there is a fellar called Curley.

Mr Echo in 'Lost' corresponds to Cekko (big Indian) in Peter Pan.

Children are stolen to join the Lost Boys.

Crocodile with clock in belly - corresponds with bunker with the timer inside.

Sounds more like Brideshead Revisited to me.

Well, Tiger Lily was at war for control of the island. I just don't seem to recall that among her (stereotypical) characteristics was drunk driving.
:?

Unless you are suggesting that the women in both are just blantant sex objects!!!!! Problem with that idea is that the men in Peter Pan aren't sex objects. :wink:

Wardrobe

Please just look at the evidence...Lost is Peter Pan but without the excitment and much less of a challenge for wardrobe!!! :D
