Anyway, for a long time now I’ve been mentioning Land of the Lost in my recaps. I drew parallels to both shows containing a closed universe in S3 Every Man For Himself, and I talked about the mirrored universe references at the end of S4 after watching There’s No Place Like Home. I mentioned what could be construed as LOTL’s final episode “Circle”, and how it corresponded to the circular patterns we’ve seen throughout LOST. At times, the similarities between the two shows are almost uncanny.
- The leader of the Sleestak was played by a really tall actor. His name? Jon Locke.
- People in LOTL see characters who aren’t there. In Album Holly and Will see their dead mother. Turns out they’re seeing only what they want to see… once they deny it (Hurley counting to 5?) these things disappear.
- In Elsewhen Holly runs into an older version of herself, from the future. She gives her past self a locket (just like Richard’s compass). She also gets a cut, that turns into a scar on her older version’s hand.
- In Hurricane someone parachutes into the Land of the Lost.
- In Hot-Air Artist a hot air balloon lands in the Land of the Lost.
- In The Flying Dutchman an 18th century schooner is landlocked in the middle of the LOTL, looking uncannily like the Black Rock.
