Hugo Reyes is teased several times for not losing large amounts of weight on the island, although actor Jorge Garcia was noticeably thinner after the pilot episode. He had already lost 30 lbs. prior to the show's filming and continued losing weight because of the demand of the filming. However, LOST producers asked him to maintain a consistent weight for the sake of production, not only because of the show's relatively slow timeline (the first three seasons cover about 100 days) but also allowed them, over the seasons, to seamlessly film multiple flashbacks to Hurley's life shortly before the crash and show him looking the same.

At the auction for the captain's journal of the "Black Rock" the auctioneer says it sailed and disappeared in 1845, 20 years before Alfred Nobel applied for his patent for dynamite. Yet the ship supplied dynamite through the series. See more »

Unless you live under a rock, you've probably heard of the hit show LOST. You've seen the previews, read the 5-star reviews, and heard the conversations about it at the water-cooler. If you haven't started watching it yet, you might wonder if you should start watching. Well, let's put it this way.
If you like shows with action, you will like LOST.
If you like shows with complex characters and interactions, you will like LOST.
If you like shows with drama, mystery, and suspense, you will like LOST.
If you like shows with humor, you will like LOST.
If you like shows where you can watch an episode twice and view it in an entirely different way, you will like LOST.
If you like shows where each and every scene has a meaning... Get the picture?
Quite simply, if you have ever liked a TV show at all, you will be hooked.
LOST is a show about a plane crash on a mysterious island. 48 people survive, but the show centers around 14, all with secrets. At first, there is confusion. But as the show goes on, friendships develop, and we learn that there is more to the island than what it seems...
The characters are fantastic--don't pay any attention to those who say the cast is so diverse it is clichéd, those are probably the same people who would have criticized it if it was all white.
In short, watch. You will be hooked, unless you're one of those nitpicky people who have a hernia if every single detail in the very first episode isn't exactly correct. Otherwise, I must ask the question... Why aren't you watching?
