Has anyone else noticed that Lost and Battlestar Galactica are following a really similar plotline lately?

Warning: Spoilers for S2

After a traumatic event, one group of survivors who has been the focus of the show encounters another group of survivors of the same event. The second group has had far fewer resources and personnel than Our Heroes, basically making Our Heroes look like lucky bastards, and has gone directly to Crazytown, do not pass go, do not collect $200. The second group is led by a woman with overly violent totalitarian tendencies and a hard on for torture who threatens the fuzzy, feel-good, rule by committee that Our Heroes have developed.

And in both shows, there are a large number of “civilians” who only show up when it’s convenient, and who rarely impact the plot, or the focus on the 10-12 characters which have SAG cards.

Separated at birth? You be the judge.
