“Lost” smells a lot like “Frequency”

Here are some huge similarities between the movie “Frequency” (which I am watching as I type this) and the television show “Lost“.

The TV show “Lost” is all about time travel.

The movie “Frequency” is all about time travel.

Both are about going back and forth in time to save lives, save the day, etc…

Both talk a lot about the changes that will take place if anything in the past is altered from its original setting.

Both include Elizabeth Mitchell in a main role. In “Frequency” her name is Julia. On “Lost” her name is Juliet.

The bad cop in “Frequency” is named Jack Shepard.

The good doctor in “Lost” is named… Jack Shephard.

The hero in “Frequency” is a guy named John and he is nicknamed Chief. John Locke on “Lost” is the new chief of “The Others” (Chief was the nickname the show’s writers used in an interview to describe John Locke’s new role).

The character Jack in “Frequency” is the commander of the Fire Department. The character Jack from “Lost” is the commander of the plane crash survivors.

How about that?
