The "Lost" Dharma Video From Comic-Con, Plus the "Lost" Video Game

The "Lost" Dharma Video From Comic-Con, Plus the "Lost" Video Game

In her awesome coverage of this year's Comic-Con, Team member Phasekitty described a new Dharma video that screened during the "Lost" presentation, and it sounded spooky. Now that it's available online, I'm not sure what to make of it.

The guy presenting the film is Dr. Marvin Candle, who has usually been featured in the Dharma orientation films, though he introduces himself using a different name: Dr. Edgar Halowax. It seems like Halowax/Candle was in a similar situation to that of Juliet, since he snaps at the people behind the camera about having to wear makeup when he's a scientist, making me wonder if he's on the island somewhat against his will. Then there are the bunnies with the number 15 printed on their fur that all the people in the room seem to fear. And creepily flashing in between takes with Halowax/Candle are the words "God loves you like he loved Jacob" (the same words were flashed during Carl's brainwashing session), along with other various images that don't seem to go with the doctor's orientation speech for the Orchid Station.

Halowax/Candle also starts to explain that "the unique properties of the island" cause a kind of "Casimir effect," though he's quickly cut off just as he's about to say what this allows them to do. Wikipedia describes the Casimir effect as "a physical force exerted between separate objects, which is due to neither charge, gravity, nor the exchange of particles, but instead is due to resonance of all-pervasive energy fields in the intervening space between the objects." So... there's that.

In addition to this video I came across the sneak peek of the "Lost" video game, which looks so silly I don't even know what to say. To check out both videos,

Orchid Station Video >>>>>>> Video Game Trailer. How can a show with such geek appeal produce a horrendously bad looking game?

This is all most likely a new addition to the Lost Experience. Last year, Rachel Blake made an appearance at Comic-Con to announce her new website. And unfortunately, Roxy, JJ doesn't have anything to do with The Lost Experience, as he does not write for Lost anymore either.

J.J. Abrams is both my favorite person on the planet, and my greatest nightmare come to life. All of my nightmares come from obsessing over his shows. Damn you J.J.!

Oh, I meant to say that there are POSSIBLE clues.... just enough to trigger theorizing... and juicy ones at that! But I don't see how there can be a 7th orientation film. However, the bits about wormholes, Casimir effects, the number 15, etc.-- they might have some sort of bearing in the mythology of it all. I'd be upset to find out this is a complete and utter joke, but it does have a fun spoofy quality to it.

I don't think they would make something like this as a joke- a show like this was born at Comic-Con where it develops this cult following and the guys on the panel recognize that. They talked a lot about how they love that people theorize and spend their Thursdays freeze framing episodes to find what they missed. I don't think they'd go through the trouble of showing something like this to their die hard fans and then turn around and say "Just kidding."

Remember when Dr. Marvin Candle was in yet ANOTHER Dharma film and introduced himself as Mark Wickman (or something or other)? Candle... Wick (man)... (halo) Wax... I see a thread.

yeah it seems more like a spoof than an actual video.

Last I knew, there were some people who thought it was a spoof for Comic-Con and some people thought it was serious. It hasn't been established positively either way.

I'm 99% sure this was a joke created for Comic-con. At least that's the working consensus. I wouldn't look too deeply into it...
