Lost Season OneI love Netflix. One of the shows that I’m watching on it is Lost. The first season of Lost was the start of a huge adventure.  I absolutely loved it.  It was exciting.  It kept me guessing.  And there were loads of literary references.

  • Walkabout, the fourth episode of season one, features Jack asking Kate, “Tell me something, how come every time there’s a hike into the Heart of Darkness you sign up?”
  • The fifth episode,  was titled White Rabbit after Alice in Wonderland.
  • During the flashback to Charlie’s life did you notice a similarity between him and Eddie from The Dark Tower, Book 2?
  • At one point Kate finds Sawyer reading Watership Down.
  • Speaking of Sawyer reading, Hurley commented on Sawyer’s reading glasses, “Dude, looks like someone steamrolled Harry Potter.”
  • In the 17th episode Sawyer states, “Folks down on the beach might have been doctors and accountants a month ago, but it’s Lord of the Flies time, now.”

What do I mean by LitQuotes Duo?  Sometimes quotes, like chocolate chip cookies, are best served in pairs. Duos may be similar, surprising, contradictory or odd. They can make you smile or even make you think.

Today’s Duo is one of my favorites! It deals with all things green.

Quote One: “O, beware, my lord, of jealousy! It is the green-eyed monster, which doth mock the meat it feeds on.” ~ Othello by William Shakespeare

Quote Two: The snotgreen sea. The scrotumtightening sea. ~ Ulysses by James Joyce
