As Jacob (the player, not the character) guessed on my FB page, the tenth player in our Lost survivor league is none other than "Doc" Jeff Jensen. He is famous (notorious?) for his very long and complex analyses of Lost at ew.com and in Entertainment Weekly. His latest post is, ahem, typical.
Obviously, Doc has greater knowledge about Lost since (a) it has been a significant chunk of his career the past several years whereas it is a mere obsession for the rest of us; and (b) he has spent much time hanging out in Hawaii and elsewhere with the creators of Lost, the actors and everyone else involved in the show. Over the past two years, he has had a video blog, Totally Lost, with Dan Snierson at ew.com that has been quite amusing and informative. He is also incredibly well read, as his Lost columns demonstrate, giving both Jacob and Steve G. runs for their money on obscure references.
So, we should expect Doc to win our league. It would be like having a football fantasy league with Mike Lombardi. So, if Doc wins, the second place finisher gets all the gifts, prizes, fame and fortune that goes to the first prize winner (getting a post of their own on my blog, free beer/scotch next time we meet in a non-virtual way). If, on the other hand, Doc does not finish first, then the winner of our league can feel most knowledgeable indeed, and we can make fun of Doc. If anyone can over-think this thing other than Jacob, it is Doc Jensen. So, it is win-win!
So, as the all-powerful Commissioner for Life, I welcome Jeff as he joins our strange way of celebrating the end of Lost. His team name is named Team Doc Jensen, which is much less obscure than I was expecting.
