Ok now if the first 8 numbers are 2.9.15.18.19.21.24.29 that means that 2 is 7 away from 9, and 9 is 6 away from 15, then 15 is 3 away from 18, then 181 is 1 away from 19, then 19 is 2 away from 21, then again 21 is 3 away from 24, then 24 is 5 away from 29. Meaning that there is a countdown from 7, and a count up from 1, each counts' numbers are displayed 2 at a time and have a 3 between the next. Look at the differences the number not the numbers, like 2 and 9 have seven between them, it looks like this:
7,6,3,1,2,3,5
Now those threes are the walls.
so in that sense the rest of the sequence would be easy, It would all go like this.

7,6,-3-,1,2,-3-,5,4,-3-,4,3...
so the NUMBERS would be like this

2,9,15,18,19,21,24,29,33,36,39,43,46
I hope thats right, or maybe I just came up with a whole new weird way of doing it, I might not even be close to the right track.

I liked this puzzle. Although the hint did make it a little easier I don't know if I would have realized there were any extra letters without it.

I liked it, but I think you should have left out the Sesame Street hint - it would have made it tougher without making it impossible.

Damn, fast work guys. Well done. Just out of interest, did you like the puzzle?

Thanks, I just couldn't think of those last two. I guess the second one should be reversed.

Wouldn't the remaining ones be American Beauty and Gladiator?

Yes, and the extra letters included are EL NS TI TO WN, anagramming to TINSEL TOWN.
