The TV show that Locke was watching is EXPOSE
« on: March 29, 2007, 12:17:22 AM »
Cobra was mentioned on the tv when Locke was eating his dinner.  For all of you who speculated that he was watching a tv show and not the news, I think you were right!  It sounds like the show was Expose.

Maybe they made a tv show based on a cartoon?
Added Stripper PIs and sold it to Fox?

Very funny that Hurley said that Expose was the best hour on TV...
It seemed cheesy to me. I guess he just likes the girls.  ;)

Maybe he thought he knew her from somewhere and Hurley reminded from where.  Sawyer was in Sydney, so maybe he caught an epi or two of the show.

Or maybe he was just giving Hurley his WTH look that he is so good at  ;)

Sawyer's look changed when he felt the walkie talkie.  Don't think that he attached any meaning to The Cobra.

That's Right!  Thanks, Puff.  He did find the walkie just then, didn't he.

nice catch - I had thought it sounded like a cheesy soap, and it certainly was.

DirtyMaggieMae and I watched the episode together and caught it at the same time, so she should be on here too, I just beat her to posting a thread about it.

Something has been bugging me about Expose. Nikki was supposed to be filming an episode in the fourth season of Expose. Locke was in a wheelchair for the 4 years prior to getting on the island. We can assume that unless Expose had a long hiatus, it would have premiered less than 4 years ago, while Locke would have been in a wheelchair. Also, there was an investigation post from the Desmond episode showing an Expose ad during the soccer game, which would have been much more than 3 years ago, since he hadn't yet joined the military, gone to jail, trained for and entered the sailing race and spent 3 years on the island.

with regards to locke, he could have been watching the first episode (or even one of the first few episodes), remember he immediately got up answered the door talked to peter.  next day?  went and saw dad.  same day or next?  peter killed.  same day or next?  locke confronts dad and gets killed.  the locke thing is very possible.  as far as the expose ad on the soccer game, the game was WAY before the series.  at first i thought maybe it was a premier ad, but it was years before, so i think it's just an easter egg for us to find.  nothing else.
