At the LOST panel today at Comic-Con, a new viral website was unveiled: LostUniversity.
Now, before I go any further, I’d just like to say that I’m not educated in the LOST universe, so I’m not 100% sure what a lot of things on the site mean, so these are just things I’ve noticed from browsing the site.
-Enrollment begins on September 22nd, 2009. There is a simple form for you to fill out, after which they will contact you on September 22nd to notify you of enrollment beginning. The first semester officially starts on December 8th, 2009. Do those dates play into LOST somehow? I have no idea, but I’m pretty sure everything on that show is a mystery.
-Semester One classes are as follows:
HIS 101: ANCIENT WRITING ON THE WALL
LAN 101: FOREIGN LANGUAGE FOR BEGINNERS
PHI 101: I’M LOST, THEREFORE I AM
PHY 101: INTRODUCTORY PHYSICS OF TIME TRAVEL
PHY 301 SEMINAR: NEW PHYSICS WITH JEREMY DAVIES
SCI 201: JUNGLE SURVIVAL BASICS
Semester Two classes are as follows:
ART 101 SEMINAR: INSPIRATION & EXPRESSION WITH JACK BENDER
LAN 201: ADVANCED FOREIGN LANGUAGE
PHI 201: I’M RIGHT, YOU’RE WRONG: THE US VS. THEM MENTALITY
PHY 201: ADVANCED PHYSICS OF TIME TRAVEL
PSY 201: SELF DISCOVERY THROUGH FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS
Some classes are noted to have no homework or exams whatsoever, which I find intriguing.
Now, what’s interesting (and perhaps funny) about this website is that ABC goes out of their way to make it blatantly obvious that this isn’t real and that it’s part of their site.
So, this is just stuff I found after snooping the site for a little bit. If you find anything else, feel free to leave a comment and let us know!
The show’s site also has a fake video series titles “Mysteries of the Universe” that claims the Dharma Initiative is a vast conspiracy.
The sixth and final season of LOST starts in February of 2010.
