Recognize this TV show? Neither do I

The original show bible for the J.J. Abrams series Lost has surfaced online. Apparently, when the tropical nighttime soap (which was so not about the island, people) first launched, Locke had a PLAN, sunscreen was worth more than gold, and Vincent the dog was doomed to lose an ear via a bite from...a human.

It just makes me wonder whether co-creator Damon Lindelof was lying when he insisted that the key mythology of the show was cooked up early on in the life of the series. Actually, what am I saying? We already know that the Lost writers lied to fans—a practice that appears to be growing more popular with show runners every season.

Got a question about how Hollywood really works? Ask it in that handy feedback module. The one right over there.
