BRC prep for 2015 Carnival of Mirrors – Archetypal investigation 

I’m looking into the story theme of temporary  isolated communities for archetypal patterns in expanding on burning man as archetypal. 

So far I have collected the following from IMDB; Lost, Under the Dome, Between, Persons Unknown, Wayward Pines, Once Upon a Time, Eureka, Jurrasic Park, Orange is the new Black, Spark, Gilligan’s Island, The Tempest, Brigadoon…

Themes of Islands, accidental entrapment, getting lost, inventors, involuntary imprisonment as well as magic. Is this archetypal and related to mythic landscape and/or is it specific to the American Western Hero?
