ANALYSIS:

LOST has been heralded by fans and critics alike as marking the beginning in a new era of diversity and quality in television programming. The premise of the program involves a group of survivors of a plane crash who find themselves on a tropical island fraught with peril both human and supernatural. Threats to survival include, but are not limited to: a group of inhabitants they call The Others, visions of the dead, a wild polar bear, roaring black plumes of smoke, and abandoned underground observation bunkers with the words quarantine written on the hatches. These are only a few of the dangers that plague this strange and mystical place that our survivors now have to call home.

The writers take great pains to give the characters depth and dimension with elaborate and deliberate flashbacks of their lives before the crash, meant to give the audience perspective on the character and his or her actions and choices in real time on the island. We learn through these flashbacks that these characters are connected in more ways than just the mishap of stepping on a doomed flight together, and are left to imagine the significance of their pre-island encounters and social networks.

Dr. Jack Shepard in the first season emerges as the clear leader of the group despite initial bouts of self-doubt and fear. In addition to serving as the only medical professional (aside from the few days when Libby, a clinical psychologist, is present), he often acts as primary decision maker, and expedition leader. Jack is a complex and interesting character who seems blissfully unaware of the contradictions that characterize a significant amount of his decisions. For instance, he physically attacks John Locke so as to liberate Henry Gale from Sayid’s torturous method of information gathering, however when Sayid is interested in ramming bamboo shoots underneath Sawyer’s fingernails in Season I, Jack seems disinterested in monitoring the situation or liberating Sawyer from Sayid. After being told by The Others he will not be harmed if he doesn’t cross a certain physical line on the island, he decides the best course of action is not to respect the line, but to access the weapons stockpile and form an army. He doesn’t seem to think twice about taking a gun to chase after Desmond when initially encountering him in the hatch, and after Sun is seemingly attacked by The Others his first instinct, again, is to jump to conclusions as to the culprit of her near abduction, and to seek out the guns. His moral compass seems to be guided, at least during this time on the island, by a credo of shooting first and asking questions later.

He is not alone, of course, in his convictions that the guns—violence-- could be the answer to a problem. In fact, all of the main male characters have resorted to punching each other, or threatening to punch each other, over disputes. Someone punches someone almost every episode: Locke punches Charlie for taking Claire’s baby. Jin attacks Michael because he thinks Michael took his watch. Sayid tortures Sawyer to get Shannon’s inhaler from him. Sawyer attacks Sayid and accuses him of responsibility for crashing their flight. Mr. Eko threatens to harm Charlie if Charlie won’t take him to the crashed drug running plane. Charlie assists Sawyer in getting the guns by attacking Sun and leaving hints that The Others may be responsible. Hurley attacks Sawyer when Sawyer calls him crazy. Of all the male main characters that have survived to see season II, not one has gone the entire fifty-something days on the island without physically attacking a member of their own group.

While the men resort to fists to sort their problems out, the women don’t ever engage in any serious conflicts or arguments with each other, and are painted as a far more sensible and gentle group. The select two that have resorted to violence in their lives pre- and post-plane crash have done so only in situations painstakingly presented as justified and in the interest of self defense. Kate, for instance, blew up her house with her father in it but only after it is made clear that her father beat her mother and possibly made sexual overtures towards her. She also robbed a bank but became agitated during the robbery when her compadres showed interest in harming the bank employees—I thought we agreed that no one gets hurt, she says. She then shoots-but not kills-her accomplices to protect the bank employees, and flees.

Before boarding the doomed flight, Ana Lucia, the other female perpetrator of violence, quit her job as a cop because she murdered a man who shot her while she was on the scene of a robbery. However, again, it is made clear that he had caused her to miscarry and this is the motive for her action: he must pay for murder of her unborn child, not for shooting her.

The other female members of the group are gentle, nurturing, non-violent: Libby, the clinical psychologist soothes Hurley when he is about to jump off a cliff. Sun is the go-to gal for herbal remedies and sicknesses. Claire is a new mother with an infant to tend to, who is able to forgive Charlie for first lying about his drug addiction and then abducting her baby in an attempt to baptize him. Rose helps Jack feel better after he has visions of seeing his late father. Even Kate, the freckled tomboy, can be counted on to listen to Sun’s problems with her husband and soothe Sawyer when he’s suffering from fever. The women from the crash never seriously disagree with each other, and are a tender, nurturing group, with the sole exception of the tough and hot-headed Ana Lucia Cortez.

Stereotypes such as Ana Lucia as the hot headed Latina are rampant in the Lost cast of characters. Michael, an African American, is an absentee father. Sawyer, the southern con artist, is racist and
