Some intereting things pulled from the Mysteries of the Universe clips, which I will spoilerize for now (note, nothing in here has anything to do with the upcoming final season, merely past episodes of the show):
- One of the first lines of the docu is quite similar to Jack's tattoo: "they walk among us, yet they are not us."
- It seems the US government was somewhat monitoring the actions of the Dharma Initiative, though not for any specific island-related reasons.
- The people who joined up with Dharma had people that noticed their absence back home.
- It is suggested that Dharma might been located on one of the 100+ islands of Tonga, in the South Pacific. We know this is wrong, of course, but it raises the possibility that the DI were never *initially* looking for the island, but rather ended up there (brought there by Jacob?), and only later realized its special properties (by this I mean the science people running the experiments, I'm sure the powers that be always inteded to get to the island).
Of course, that Lampost station was built in the church mentioned in the video, so perhaps they were looking for the island all the long, possibly at the behest of Alvar Hanso, who was a weapons profiteer during the war, and could have heard about the legend from any number of sources. Hanso finds a brilliant scientist, DeGroot, funds him, and uses him to locate the island. Sound familiar to anyone?
It's this last point that is the most intriguing part of the video, since it most dierectly ties into the show's actual on-screen events.
At any rate, I'm psyched for the final season of LOST, and am anticipating some nice discussion, rivalling the final season thread of BSG.
