Catching Up and it Turns Out I'm Not the Only One Missing LOST

So, due to all of the sports, I'm a little behind on my television viewing.  That should be easier now that baseball is over.  (Yes, I realize that technically baseball is still going on, but the pain of being swept out of the first round makes it hard for me to watch baseball without bursting into embarrassing tears.)  What's also bad is that the one series I predicted would be a sweep was the only series that wasn't.  Oh well.  Try again next year.  (For the record though, I have the Indians beating the Rockies in the World Series.)

Anyway, to get to my point, I only just watched the second episode of Chuck.  In the episode, Chuck is undergoing tests by some Government Doctor, and he's looking at pictures that trigger the computer in his brain, one of which is of an airplane.  Seeing it Chuck says, "Oceanic Flight 815 was shot down by surface to air missiles ... who worked on subterranean ... beneath the ... international airport."  That's all I was able to understand despite watching the scene about a hundred times.  Not that it really has any bearing on our friends so recently from the mysterious island, as so far as I can tell there is no connection between this show, Chuck, and LOST.  My feeling is that it was just a tiny shout out to LOST, but still it was a heart stopping moment when Chuck mentioned that fateful flight.

Anyway, I thought I'd share this shout out sized treat with you, my reading public (small though you are) as something to help tide you over a little bit at least as we patiently (or try anyway) wait for LOST to return.
