survivalkit.jpgWelcome to the first week without Lost.  Don’t worry, its a short break and is nothing compared to what we waited in between seasons 3 and 4!  None the less we have put together a few things that will help you “survive” this mini-hiatus.  Missing Lost is just one of the tools that will keep at bay the cold sweat of Lost addiction.

Think of this as a relationship break.  Imagine Lost said to you “We need to take a break and see other people,”  and we, the fine folks of DocArzt.com, have put together a list of prospective dates that share the same qualities that drew you into Lost’s seductive charm in the first place.  They will be thrown into categories, then reviewed, and if that wasn’t cruel enough, we will proceed to rate them on a scale of 1 to 6 Dharma Bunnies.

Book – Robert Charles Wilson – Spin:

The book starts off in a flash forward far into the future, 4 billion years to be exact, and promptly flashes back to the present where the stars fall out of the sky.  The three protagonists, Diane and Jason Lawton and their good friend Tyler Dupree view this event as adolescents.  All satellite communication is lost and the world panics, wondering if the sun is ever going to rise again.

Spin won the Hugo Award in 2006 (which is given to the best science fiction or fantasy book of the year).  It contains a good amount of science backstory (like lost), and a perfect amount of story and character development.  This is one of the best science fiction books I have ever read, give it a try. 

You can preview the book on Google Book Search.

Dharma Bunny Rating: 6 out of 6

TV Series – CBS – Jericho:

Jericho is a small town in Kansas that is left to fend for itself after a terrorist nuclear strike is launched towards America.  Just like our beloved Losties are stranded on an island, these folks are stranded in the middle of a nuclear holocaust. 

The series finale to Jericho airs tonight on CBS at 10pm (Eastern).  If you want to watch a great series in its entirety during the short break, Jericho is your best bet.  It has an engaging story and mysterious characters, some of the elements that make Lost such a great show. 

You can watch the whole series on the CBS website.

Movie – 1997 – The Cube: by Steve

If you want to get a mysterious conspiracy fix find the movie Cube. Like Lost it starts with a

simple premise, a person wakes up in a Cube shaped room with exits on all sides of the Cube. The person picks a door into the cube the next room and is horribly murdered. The movie then follows a group of survivors in their attempt to escape the cube prison and
their own deteriorating mental state.

There is a hidden bonus for Lost fans, the secret of the Cube is based on math so you can get your number fix.  You can watch the whole movie on Google Video.
