I want to make a joke about Lost and splitting up and keeping secrets but I don't want to give the impression that I find the behavior unrealistic. I'd keep that gun a secret too.
I've never actually seen lost. I'm kinda relying on my own creativity to keep from getting too similar.
The similarities are extremely superficial, they begin and end with "plane cut in half, people end up on weird island." That's why I couldn't make the joke in good faith, it'd be like saying Lord of the Rings ripped off Willow because there were short people and magic. Plus I think the behavior of the survivors here is completely sensible.
They're making the mistake of splitting up and getting distrustful but it feels real. What is the guy going to do, run into the living room and say HEY EVERYONE I GOT A GUN. That would be entertaining but it would not do him any good.
