You know, Walt and Michael's heading when they left on that boat was 325.

It was? I was pretty sure it was 035...

Oh well. Was that Claire, do you think? Was that Christian?

That *was* extremely creepy. You know she's dead, and not even sure that's really her - at least in spirit. {shudder}

I actually liked this one better than the previous week's. I guess I just prefer island episodes where we get closer to directly solving the mysteries, or maybe I just don't like when the show gets too maudlin. I did like it, though I thought John Locke's childhood + adult flashback sequences were a little choppy, I guess by design, and as usual I'm sure all the dots will be connected eventually. (Er, some of them anyway.) But that thread just felt a little forced. But overall I liked it.

Was sorry to see the captain killed though.

I'm picturing that it has a giant outboard motor on one side and a steering wheel on the other. Toot toot! ;-)

Wouldn't be the first time someone moved an island. Although I picture it more as the back of giant turtle swimming along.

(as a sidenote: what happens if we all request an out-of-print title? *sigh*)

I kinda just figured they moved it in time instead of location. I guess we'll see.


Now what makes you think we wouldn't search the ends of the Earth (internet) for an out of print DVD? We even have a carrier pigeon in case there's an out of print DVD available in the most remote locations (or in another country - cuts back on shipping costs). Don't worry. He's strong.

Yah, we have done everything short of search on the back of a giant turtle for that one, but unless you'd like us to pay $150 for one DVD copy, it'll probably have to wait 'til it's reissued.

We do have newer The Hogfather, though, which is better anyway.

Okay, wouldn't it be funny if turned out the whole plane crash/island thing is a big dream, and the entire cast comes out of the shower a la Dallas, at the very end?

You've seen "Soul Music"? *sigh*

Well, my point was that it's odd to see the yellow "request" button on an out-of-print title. I mean, if a whole bunch of us request it (and I'd like to imagine that we have) what can you do about it?

No. It wouldn't be funny if the whole plane crash/island thing is a big dream, and the entire cast comes out of the shower a la Dallas at the very end.

Actually, I suppose it'd be a little funny if they *literally* came out of the shower a la Dallas. "What the hell? Who are you guys and what are you all doing in my shower at once?"

"Soul Music" isn't nearly as good as "The Hogfather". However, if you still want to see it for yourself, may I recommend your local library?

Back to Lost:

Did you notice the Geronimo Jackson album in the Locke flashback. (Guess that's become an inside joke.)

What do you think was Kate's promise to Sawyer?

Um, maybe the answer to the mystery of what's going on with Jack is simply that Jack is a paranoid jerk? No. didn't think so.

First of all, I'm not a librarian; woozy is a librarian (and he is dead).
Second, woozy isn't a public librarian; he's a Library and Information Scientist working in Web technology.
And thirdly, he's kind of a bum these days.
And fourthly, well, I'm always a little shy about inter-library loan. I feel like I'm imposing. *blush*

Okay, it's bugged me for a long time now: What does Aaron eat? Or is he an amazing baby that never eats and somehow no-one ever noticed it was odd. I *suppose* it is possible that the found some baby formula in the hatch or new Otherton and Claire had no qualms about carying it around every where she went and Sawyer knew how to prepare it for the day the spent searching for Claire but forgot to hand the formula over to Kate, but *really*

Not much of an episode but there were a few aspects I particularly liked. The flash forward was mostly anti-climatic as everything had more or less been established in earlier flashforwards. *However* I liked the five different behaviors (Hurley's nervousness, Jack's man-on-a-mission, Sun's tacitern acceptence) upon returning to the real world.

Plus I think a few things were very subtlely revealed. We still don't know what deal or what secret the Oceanic 6 made to keep the real story from coming out why they feel it's so urgent to keep to the cover story so much that Jack can't even tell Claire's mother her only grandson is less than ten feet away. But if we simply accept it for now note:

1) The look between Nadia and Sayid at Hugo's party when Hugo's dad asked if they talking about hunting boar or other castaway stuff. SirenTiger prediction: Sayid told Nadia "the secret" and directly or indirectly that was why she was killed.

2) When Sun confronts her father and says it was his fault they were on the plane she says "There are two men responsible for my husband's death and you are one of them". According to the "cover story" Jin didn't survive the crash and thus according to the "cover story" Mr. Paik would be *entirely* responsible for Jin's death. It's not in character for Sun to ever slip up when maintaining a cover (maintaining a cover has been what she's been doing her entire life) so SirenTiger prediction: Mr. Paik, as well as Charles Whidmore, is somehow involved in the backstory. Of course, many thought so already. Also, I suppose if the crash were being blamed on human error the other man in the "cover story" could be the pilot on whom the media is placing the blame.

I was annoyed that the whispering Hurley heard didn't come to any thing. I'm trying to hone the whispers-as-others-long-distance-and/or-time-travel-communication-maybe-utterly-separate-from-communicating-with-what-appear-to-be-dead-people-but-might-not-be theory Cinenaut and I are attempt to develop.

Whacko theory which I don't really believe but want to joke about: Hurley's dad *did* set the odometers deliberately and is the mastermind behind the entire backstory. Um, hurley ran from the car saying it wanted nothing to do with it, but wasn't it the same car he was driving later on the high-speed chase? Or am I mis-remembering the event by power of suggestion?

Ha! I was wondering that about Aaron. Maybe Sawyer was feeding Aaron baby bird style?

Maybe coconut milk?

I think that is the same car that Hurley crashes. Perhaps he decides to confront the madness at some point and peels out in it anyway.

Do you suppose all (or a lot of) the flash forward mysteries will be wrapped up this season?

It would be funny if it turned out that Hurley's dad was the guy behind it all.

My favorite moment was when Sawyer told Jack that Hurley was with Ben and Jack said: "Son of a bitch."

Oh, and yes I was disappointed that Hurley didn't have any more spooky encounters. I think the writers are just going to drag out the smoke monster and the whispering visions mysteries as long as possible.
