I bet about half of you are already planning on eating me alive or feeding me to a polar bear just for the title. You don't have to read this. You can turn back now and just pretend you never saw it. No one will ever know. =P
The Lost/Walking Dead thing just kind of popped up in the early hours of the morning when I was trying to get to sleep. I started writing stuff down, wondering if it would make sense when I was fully conscious. It did. So here you go - a rough list of similarities between characters from The Walking Dead and Lost.
Notes: Most of the Lost stuff applies more to the early seasons, before everything got so complicated. I haven't read The Walking Dead comics, so this is based on season 1 of the show. I am aware that TWD can change it up any time and a lot of this might not be relevant next season, or even next week. This is just one fan's thoughts on the similarites between the characters of the two shows. Please don't eat me.
