Victorian Lost Trading Cards Are Kind Of Awesome

By David Wharton | 8 years ago

Before descending into a new age metaphysical mess, Lost had a lot of fun with science fictional concepts such as time travel. And hey, despite the fact that they didn’t really stick the landing, I had a lot of fun trying to figure out what the hell was going on with that show for all those years. Still, it seems a shame that our resident Losties were fairly limited in their time jaunts. Why settle for leaping back a couple of decades when you could, for instance, zap back to the Victorian era?

That seems to be the idea behind these rather awesome Victorian-style portraits of some of the show’s characters, posted by a chap named Neil Richards on his blog. Somebody should probably ask Hurley what the expiration date is on that Dharma mayonnaise.

I must say, Kate looks lovely in any decade, but can we just stop for a second and talk about the gold-plated stack of awesome that is Mutton-Chop Ben Linus? Seriously, somebody get ABC on the blower, stat. We need to greenlight Ye Olde Adventures of Top-Hat Hurley and Mutton-Chop Ben and I mean right now mister!
