I read somewhere that the baby was *not* oriental. I'll have to re-watch (it recorded the repeat on Saturday so I still have it). If the baby is a girl, with red hair and blue eyes, we can all make an educated guess. But that's probably too simple.

The baby was not oriental, and it could not have been conceived on the island (as we know).

"Oriental"...??? What's next - are you going to ask what happened to the "Negro fella" with the young 'un?

People, we're living in the 21st century now. You might want to mix the term "Asian" into your vocabulary.

Haha, Nuje, I was going to write a very similar post. I have to correct my aunt nearly every time I see her, as "oriental" is still very much in her vocabulary. Keep in mind, though, that in other parts of the world, "oriental" is still very much accepted and not considered offensive/non-PC.

Back to the topic...I've deleted it from my PVR, and I can't for the life of me remember any baby in the season opener! Could somebody please refresh my memory? I checked the Wikipedia page and they didn't make any mention of a baby.

From what I recall
Claire was pregnant and gave birth to Aaron. Charlie tried to help raise the baby while on the Island
She then gave the baby to Kate to take off the island, I believe Claire then died later, but who knows these days who is dead and who is not dead.

I have a photographic memory, trouble is most times the lens cap is on.

I think the baby in question here is not Claire's son, but Pierre Chang's baby who was in the opening minutes of the first episode:

Oriental is offensive? The only issue with it is that it means Eastern, which is incorrect in certain places of the world (it's a very Euro-centric term). But is Asian any more correct? Most of Russia is in Asia. My mother was born in Siberia. Does that make her Asian? Technically, yes, but not in the way most people think.

Honestly, did I offend anyone? If I did I apologize.

I was definitely offended by the way you treated me, though, and it has nothing to do with race.

Hard to tell, but doesn't look like the baby is red-haired and blue-eyed. Charlotte thinks she was born on the Island so that's what I was aiming at. I don't think the baby is Charlotte. Too bad.

Please shake hands and be done. No offence was intended I'm sure by either party, so let's move on and keep to the topic at hand.

Thanks

Angry "Lost" last 2 minutes...

Thank you for GLOBAL for hijacking the last two minutes of the ABC feed.

Life on Mars starts at 10PM ET on their network. Guess what...it starts at 10:02 ET on ABC. It should not have even but on the simsub list as far as I'm concerned.

I am not impressed. That's it...I'm not recording anything from the Eastern US feeds anymore. My Seattle feeds are not hijacked EVER....looks I'll be watching everything a day later now.

denben73, I was ticked too.

I went to see if it was on in SD, but NO. Global had taken over. Then LOST came back on in HD, but had missed the conversation with Locke and Richard. ARGH.

To fill those in who missed the conversation with Richard and Locke,

Locke told Richard that Jacob sent him, and give him the compass. He tried to explain that he was their leader in the future and he needed to know how to get off the island. Richard wouldn't tell him, so Locke told him when he was born (which was 2 years in the future). Then another flash happened and they were taken back a while (it doesn't appear there is anything on the island).

I don't understand why people don't just record the CTV feed, it's going to be the same thing anyway. That way it can't be screwed up (CTV's broadcast finished at 10 by the way).

CTV isn't airing Lost this season. The show ran over an hour on ABC East and Global East HD cut in early with their simsub of a different show. Also, the part you describe wasn't what we missed, I did see that. This is a another great example of a simsub screw up!

That was the part I missed before the sim-sub was dropped.

I for one was happy that "A' had LOST this year as they don't broadcast in HD. But tonight.... ARGH. Finally BellTV is telling the truth when it advertises they have ABC-HD.

I think I will tape the rebroadcast @ 12:00
