Lost & Grey's Anatomy

(see previous Lost thread)....Has anyone noticed that both shows have a neurosurgeon named Dr. Sheppard? Is this a coincidence, or just lack of creativity?

I don't watch either show, but I'd hazard a guess that both characters are named "in honour" of Samuel H. Sheppard (osteopath, not a neurosergeon) who was charged with, and ultimately acquitted of the murder of his wife in the 1950's. His case was the basis for the series and film "The Fugitive," and is much beloved by conspiracy theorists the world over. As I said, just a guess.

there are plenty of other honorable doctors out there. i'm sure ABC could have found at least 2 names.

Also, the names on Lost are more carefully chosen than at first glance. Jack Shepherd on Lost has typically been leading everyone, and people just tend to follow him as well, no matter what his hasty plans are. A bit like a shepherd, yeah?
