LOST: Nine Years Ago Today

LOST aired for the first time nine years ago today. People are still talking about it. People still bring it up in conversations with me.

Doctor Who is a cultural phenomenon in both the UK and the United States, continuing to go from strength-to-strength as it approaches its 50th anniversary in 2013. Over the show’s long history on television—and in various spin-off TV shows, audio adventures, novels and comic books—religion and religious themes have consistently been a subject of interest.
