LOST Thoughts ( and video) : Sawyer Nickname Origin # 34


Yes, I’m back with more nickname origins and this one’s from, who else….Sawyer. šŸ™‚

In the Season One episode ” Whatever the Case May Be”, lost-kate-t1Kate is walking through the jungle alone…or at least she thinks she is.

Kate picks up a rock to defend herself against whatever is rustling in the jungle. She pitches at what she thinks might be a boar or worse. Instead, it is Mr. James Ford ( although no one knew that was his name yet.) To which, Sawyer jokingly grunts ” Me Kate! Me throw rock!”

Now, this nickname is a bit tricky. “Me Kate” is reflective of similar “branding” coming from the fictional quintessential Ape Man, Edgar Rice Burrows’ leading character from the classic tale ” Tarzan and the Apes” . ( ” Me Tarzan! You Jane! “)

Essentially, it is the story of a child who lost his parents during a violent animal attack in the jungle home they built after they were marooned in a shipwreck. He was raised by apes into his young adulthood but eventually was found several years later by some English explorers. Tarzan becomes ” civilized” but longs to be back in the wild with Jane, a woman who accompanied the team on their expedition of Tarzan’s homeland of Africa.

Orphaned boy… raised by another… needed to learn to be part of civilized society…” Me?! I’m in the wiiiild!” ? Nope…no similarities there! šŸ˜‰

And here’s a video just for fun to bring home the point.

    I loved watching Lost until the network kept giving us reruns during the regular season. I got lost and could never figure out what was happening after a while so I stopped watching.

    Hi Shelby!

    It’s tough to stay with any show, even those that you are really into, if they change the day/time and regular/mid season switches. And with a serial like LOST, it makes it doubly so.

    But what is great is that LOST is out on DVD (BluRay too. LOST alone is worth buying a player for). It’s much easier to catch up and see the episodes at your own pace. And since the last season is in January, 2010, (IMO) it really is worth it to try and catch up during the hiatus.

    Thanks for your comment. šŸ™‚

    LOL… I can’t imagine why? šŸ™‚

    Thank you. We’re having fun doing another podcast together. We’re attempting to keep the FF one to being about an hour long. It gets a little tougher with each passing episode. Yet Heath and I are going to try to stick to that time as best we can.

    But then again, we also think we can do a recap in 2:17…lol.
