Butlin's on Lost
I was watching "Lost" the other day (June 16, episode name "Greatest Hits"). There is a scene in the show where the character Charlie flashes back to being a boy in the U.K. with his father teaching him to swim. Later, back in the present, Charlie is making a list of his fondest memories. He writes "#4 Dad teaching me to swim at Butlins." Sure enough, you can see a sign (if you step frame by frame on your PVR) in the background of the scene that reads "Butlin's Family Fun for Everyone" Too bad they didn't have a scene in one of the Beachcomber Bars.
I'm happy to have a Butlin's souvenir tiki mug in my collection.
