Joop the talking orangutan was a real idea the creators of Lost threw around. They were joking at the time, but I think some shows should seriously consider using him.
The idea was that if the show had been cancelled after one season they would have been leaving the viewers with a ton of unanswered questions. They figured, since they were canceled anyway, why not end the final episode with an explanation. The last scene of the last episode would have been a nice desk with a map of the island on the wall behind it, and sitting at the desk there would have been a talking orangutan who would say, “Hello. My name is Joop,” then explain all of the mysteries of the island.
If I were the producer of . . . oh, let’s say House of Cards, I would seriously consider releasing a video starring Joop, explaining what would have happened in the final season of the show if the character Frank Underwood had been involved, which it appears, at this point, he will not be.
Or, here’s another idea. They could recast the part of Frank Underwood with George Clooney, then have people keep going on and on about how good Frank’s looking lately.
