"Lost" and "The Office:" Perfect Together?

If you watched the February 9th episode of the TV series "Lost," and had your razor sharp pop-culture ears tuned in, you may have caught a quick reference to the hit BBC show, "The Office." In his flashback, Charlie, the lovable - but drug addled - bassist from the fictional rock band Driveshaft (You are everybody!), gets taken home by a pretty 22 year-old English girl, Lucy. When Charlie asks her where her rich father is, she says he's off buying some 'paper company in Slough'; Wernham Hogg, the infamous setting for "The Office," is a paper company in Slough. Coincidence? I think not. A brief marriage of two of the best series from the past few years to grace a television screen? You betcha! Keep those ears open.

I think you're right on track and not many people are willing to admit that they share your views. kim photo yunjin is an AWESOME place to discuss LOST.

*grin* I heard the reference and started chuckling too. Wonder how many people got it? Probably anyone in England watching it would pick right up on the reference...
