According to EW: ‘Lost’ exclusive: War erupts over Charlotte’s real age!

Holy cow! So Charlotte’s age has been a big mystery, since she was born in 1979, but clearly, Faraday saw her in 1974.  You know how big of a deal this is!?

It’s not! Holy shit, people, has it come to this? This is a big deal?  This is the first continuity mistake of note on Lost (yes, there are some other very minor ones that I generally attribute to poetic license, like traveling distances over the island in short periods).  That said, it’s just not a big deal.  It doesn’t ruin the plot, it doesn’t change any of the mystery, it’s just a simple mistake that really isn’t that big of a deal.  So Charlotte is a little older than we thought.  Or she got her own birth year wrong.  Whatever.

Can we get to talking about the important things, like where is Faraday in 1977? Where are Bernard and Rose? Why didn’t Sun go back to 1977? Why can’t Widmore come back to the island? And… ahem… four toed statue?!

  1. Yeah, or why did the time flashes always happen right before someone was about to say something important, or right before they would get shot?

    THAT is the real mystery in Lost for me. As always, time travel was used as a very weak plot element to create tension. They failed.

  2. I personally hate continuity errors. For me, they are a big deal. And the reason for this is because I see Lost as a game, as a puzzle. Pretty much like a software-based product. Therefore, I can’t just do my job (=entertainment) when these guys are having such bugs.

    As I wrote over at DarkUFO’s site (the biggest Lost fan site these days), I hope that the writers/editors go back to the whole series, fix about 50 of these continuity errors and then re-release all season in one new DVD/BD collection: Lost version 1.1

    Sorry, forgot to add great post! Can’t wait to see your next post!

    [WORDPRESS HASHCASH] The poster sent us ‘0 which is not a hashcash value.

  4. And let’s not forget the woman (part of the crew) who appears behind Sun in the Dharmaville with Christian… Yet another blunder on set! This season is just plain sloppy.

    And don’t let me start with Sayid’s British accent being more apparent this season — he doesn’t even TRY anymore!
