Rogue Satellite Could Interfere With Lost Finale

First off, before I get started here, I had absolutely no idea there was a website devoted to reporting on satellite news. But I guess there is. And according the site, Satnews Daily, satellite Galaxy 15 has gone rogue and is no longer responding to commands from ground control.

I know you’re probably wondering how this has anything to do with Lost. Well, Galaxy 15 has apparently entered the orbit of it’s neighbor satellite, AMC-11, and is threatening to interfere with AMC’s signals. For those of you who don’t know (I didn’t,) AMC-11 is responsible for beaming cable television to homes across the country. One of the shows it’s sending? ABC’s Lost.

I guess ground control is beaming stronger and stronger signals at Galaxy 15 in hopes that it will get the rogue satellite to malfunction and cause it to shut down. This will prevent it from interfering with AMC-11’s orbit, and should result in no interference on Lost’s final night.

Should ground control not be able to shut down Galaxy 15, there is a chance the finale of Lost could suffer some interference. I’m not sure about you, but I’ll be pretty upset if this satellite causes me to miss even a minute of TV’s biggest event of the year. Imagine watching Lost up until the last 10 minutes with no interference, and then Galaxy 15 bumps it’s neighbor satellite, and everyone in the country misses the last few minutes of Lost. I would fully expect rioting in the streets.

    This was Darlton’s plan all along!

  • Rey

    Holy crap! Oromaner is right!

  • brewsterdmb

    I actually work at NOAA in satellite operations.
    I did NOT cause this =P

    • professorstotch

      I don’t believe you, sir! I want you to go up there and take it down yourself!

    • GeigerCounter

      Awesome job!

  • First Obama, now a rogue satellite!

    • professorstotch

      Everyone’s out to get us

  • Brewster… get on that for me… fix this…

  • Brandon

    So what you’re saying is I shouldn’t risk watching the finale in fear that any second it could be interrupted. Instead I should download it the next day knowing 100% I have no satellites to worry about. Ok sounds like a plan.

      Could you just copy and paste where I said that? I can’t seem to find it.

  • DeSelby

    We may get a Soprano’s finale by accident.

    • Rams

      Mass heart-attacks!!!

    • dappawit

      Nice… this made me laugh πŸ™‚

  • catholicdude

    I think I know a way we can stop this. We’re gonna have to detonate a nuclear bomb.

    • michellio

      I co-sign this!!

      Heck yes. Then we can be sent into an alternative time line and relive the last six years all over again. Then we will start to have flashed of the entire show, causing Damon and Carlton to rewrite the series. Meaning that Nikki and Paulo never existed and Locke will never really die and be the one true candidate to replace Jacob.

      But nukes don’t work this way so we have to pray for the best. I don’t want to have to rewatch this online or on demand the next day because of interference…. even though i probably will no matter what because my tears will cause me to miss so much.

  • LockeLover

    I’m sure glad I watch Lost via antenna, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you cable viewers πŸ™‚

    • The White Rock

      Exactly, I record LOST off cable AND via antenna – both in HD, redundant systems baby.

  • Dan Berry

    even if it disrupted the signal, i would look forward to having new material to watch once it’s downloaded on itunes. like the time when MIB was talking to Richard and gave him the knife, and ABC cut out because GODDAMN COMCAST IS A PIECE OF SHIT SERVICE. there you go.

  • bakunin

    Oh no! I guess we will have to watch it on broadcast! I hope you didn’t make fun of your friend too much for still using rabbit ears.

    I predict Darlton did hijack the satellite and anyone watching any cable channel will hear Rousseau’s distress signal on repeat.

  • Mr_Rob

    I ‘m guessing the coordinates mus have been 4 8 15 6 23 42…… omg the numbers ARE BAD

  • Chelsy

    Anyone think it’s weird that it’s a rogue sattelite that’s number 15? Of all numbers! Lol! Wow. What a crazy predicament.

  • Any updates on this?

  • s.w.a.c.

    I think a rogue satellite is filling the board with spam.

    • Neil

      this made me laugh

    • The White Rock

      I will allow this.
