ABC is launching its own “Lost University,” details of which are beginning to trickle out. Check out the very cool web presence at abc.com’s Lost site, filled with course descriptions (“Introductory Physics of Time Travel”), selected reading (“A Treatise of Human Nature” by David Hume), and a faculty directory. Included among the many real-life academics on staff is actor Jeremy Davies (Daniel Faraday), who proved himself something of a science egghead the last time I interviewed him.
Not to take anything away from Lost, I love it; however, I hope the Introductory Physics of Time Travel is just the Universal Studios Back to the Future: The Ride.
This would be more of an educational experience than most college courses, probably because folks would go into this thinking, “Damn, I do not want to listen to Faraday while hungover. Dude is CRAZY!”
