The folks at Beliefnet have created a gallery to Lost’s twelve most “spiritual” moments. But does the show have an identifiable spiritual stance, or do its writers, in true post-modern fashion, use whatever motifs are out there to keep their narrative humming along?

It is possible to be a fan of the show without buying into its New Age-y spiritual vibe.
Meanwhile, for those who haven’t followed the show in the past, but are roaming the television wasteland during the writers’ strike, Entertainment Weekly proves quick summaries of previous episodes.
