Comic-Con Video: The Dharma Initiative Recruits

By Jen Chaney
Comic-COn...

All of you loyal "Lost"-ophiles undoubtedly remember the Octagon Global commercial that aired during the season finale and urged people to come to San Diego in July. Well, that was all a big promotion for what's happening here at Comic-Con: A recruitment effort by the Dharma Initiative.

Yesterday, I swing by Dharma's booth on the Convention Center's Exhibit Hall Floor and met a very pleasant woman named Jackie (just Jackie), who explained what they're doing. I then spoke to Isabel Lim, a San Diego resident who had just completed her assessment and gotten approval to join Dharma. Watch the video below to find out what they said. I am hoping to get my own assessment sometime in the next couple of days. Hopefully I'll also pass muster and be well on my way to wearing my very own fashionabe Dharma jumpsuit.

Here's the video. And, of course, Namaste.

Not just your computer, i'm afraid. Recording in big halls is a bear if you don't have a directional mic.

any good swag at the dharma booth?

U Street, I was able to hear some of it. The woman from Dharma said they were recruiting for a new project and were asking people to interview and take tests to determine their eligibility. Then a woman who had been through the interview said that she was shown different pictures and asked what she thought of each picture - a deformed carrot and a girl getting sprayed with water. They asked her interview type questions and then asked her what was the first album she ever bought. They gave her a card that told her to register on dharmawantsyou.com on Monday. That's all I could hear.

How sad is it that we're so Lost deprived that we'll take any little thing we can get?

I dunno. I'll be more interested when they graduate into real fake religion, like Scientology. But I have to say, the myth stage looks promising.

Dharma is good. Dharma is great.

I'd rather eat ice cream on a french roll.
