Dr. Candle differences



The first screen cap is from episode three "Orientation." Second cap is from "What Kate Did."
The new piece of film has some slight differences:
The arrow on the exit sign seems to be pointing in a different direction..
The lapel on the lab jacket is slightly different
The pattern on his tie looks a little different.
Dr. Candle's hair looks different.
I hate pointing out continuity errors, but I really don't think these differences are in error.
And if you think the film was just spliced on backwards and that explains the exit sign and tie, you're wrong. The sound would not play if the film was spliced incorrectly. Take my word, my years as a theatre projectionist are finally paying off.

Not to mention the fact that the exit sign would be to "our" right of Dr Candle as opposed to the left.

That said, I wonder if it is in fact just a case of them (the directors) filming it later on and fans expecting everything to mean something. Either way, another thing to ponder. Cheers.

Yeah, good point. We're all trained to think that every detail is supposed to mean something. And the writers love red herrings.

Doesn't it look like he has a fake eye?

This has been the topic of WAY too much discussion on the Fuselage. If you think this will be a significant plot point when it was only noticed by a handful of geeks gazing at stills, you're a stupid as the guys over at LostCasts think you are . . . .

Why do I waste my time talking to you? Um, maybe because your show is excellent despite the "Dr. Candle differences" post?

Check out the Transmission board. Javi (writer from the show) has stated that the clip is intended to be the same, but was shot by the show producers on different days.

Another dead end, I guess.

No, anonymous..1. THe Transmission doesent have a message board and 2.It isnt an official Lost podcast. So not a dead end, so....shut up.

Sorry, I meant the Fuselage.

I think Dr. Marvin is worn out from banging Kate in the hatch, would explained his messed up hair and glass eye. She is a mean cuss. She probably poked it out when he called out Roussau's name by accident.

I think Jav posted this on the Fusleage, but I could be wrong.

Or my other theory is Dr Candle just got his ass handed to him by Chuck Norris aka the Island Monster. A Tornado kick to the grape popped his eye right out and ruffled up his finely coiffed doo.
