No Lost tonight! :(

I really liked that last episode. It was kind of a happy one for a change. We even got a glimpse of the statue, which seems to be Egyptian. Ankhs are popping up all over.

Sawyer episodes are always pretty enjoyable.

sirenwoozy thinks that little red haired girl is a little red herring, but I think it might be Charlotte. Woozy thinks Charlotte wouldn't have been born yet.

It'll be interesting to see how long they are stuck in the 70s. There's no telling this season; things are happening so fast.

So how did everyone end up spending their Wednesday night this week since Lost didn't air? :)

I went to a show to see Akron Family. A pretty enjoyable night altogether except it was an all ages performance and I was getting grumpy at the influx of random teeny-boppers that showed up. Random highlight of the night being that Charlyne Yi (Michael Cera's girlfriend and actress whose made mini cameos in Apatow films) did stand-up as an opening act. Still, would I have preferred to have sat at home and watched Lost? Hmmm.. hard to say.

Fun moment: Sun saying "I lied."

It was kind of disappointing to me to find out that Amy and Horace's baby was Ethan.

Does Sayid know he's in 1977? How long did it take him to figure it out, do you suppose? Would you eat a sandwich prepared by a young Benjamin Linus?

That kid had the perfect look.

I think this is probably my least favorite episode of the season thus far. Felt like there was only 10% reveal and 90% hokey drama mixed with faux-suspense of whether Jack and the rest would be discovered as false recruits. At least next week's episode seems to build up to them leaving the Dharma camp.

Early prediction: Goodbye Horace and Dharma kids, Hello Richard and the others!

I thought it was a pretty good episode. It was interesting to see what happened on the plane after the gang time warped out of there, interesting to see the new dynamics between Jack and Sawyer and Kate and Juliette, and interesting to wonder about how much Ben remembers about the 70s.

Oops! Darn "smart quotes." That should have read:

"Three years with no burning buses. Y'all are back for one day?."

So, is Ben dead? If he is, will the island resurrect him? Or is Daniel Farraday wrong about not being able to change anything in the past?

Or, is he just winged? Sayid is normally a pretty good shot.

Looks like it. No spoilers from anyone on the East Coast!

How many episodes are left this season anyway?

"That douche is my dad."

I think there are four episodes left in season five, but next week is just a flashback show.

Is "Some Like It Hoth" the funniest Lost episode title ever, or what? Did they write The Empire Strikes Back into the show just so they could use that title? Actually, that part fit pretty well in the theme of the episode.

"How do you spell bounty hunter?"

Hurley and Miles are pretty funny together.

Hurley talking to Miles and his dad from the back seat of the van was hilarious, especially Miles' reaction to his dad saying he liked country music.

Miles looked awesome as a punk rocker!

This episode was solid - great origins story and lotsa nyucks. This bromance developing between Hurley and Miles is really sweet. I don't know if this is the exact quote, but I love when Hurley corrects Miles, "shakes his WOOLY fist to the sky".

No, it was "fury" and "furry," which begs the question, did Hurley leave out the extra R, or did Miles just read it wrong?

Hurley and Miles were definitely funny together but personally I kind of found that episode a bit flat and pointless -- though I guess there were important revelations within it. (And who here said Dr Chang was Miles dad ages ago? Hmm? {cough} ;-) ) I like Miles but I just felt momentum kind of flattened out with this one.

I made this comment elsewhere that Lost is interesting for being one of the rare shows or films that has its main characters walk around in their own backstory.

Btw, was it just me or did that housing complex that Miles was in, when he lied and told that guy his dead son loves him, etc, look too much like the same housing complex on the island where the Dharma gang (and later the new Others) live? Seemed like they weren't even trying to film it somewhere else, but maybe I just looked too closely.

Ah well, looking forward to next week's regardless.

Yeah, I agree it wasn't the most compelling episode ever. I think it's a bit of comic relief before the build-up to the big season finale, although the episode was obviously not entirely comic.

The idea that they are walking around in their own backstories is interesting. It's different from a flashback, because they are experiencing things that they didn't experience the first time around. It really adds another layer of storytelling potential.

I didn't notice that the housing seemed reused. I doubt that Losties would let them get away with that without lots of accusatory blogging.

Maybe this episode was disappointing because Miles has so much potential as a character and they're not doing much with him.

YES! Finally a new episode to relieve the week!

So anyone have the official countdown for how many episodes left in the season before I go into crippling Lost withdrawls?
Cinenaut
post #57  on April 29, 2009 - 12:21 PM PDT  
I believe there are four, counting tonight's.

What kind of heinous cliffhanger do you suppose they are working up to this season?

Well the Miles episode seem to acknowledge this 3rd rogue group of people aware of the island and that Ilana is one of these members. Knowing the Lost writers, whatever develops, I imagine the season will end on a climax with all the characters returning to a single present time. I think it's inevitable at this point, especially given Faraday's return to the storyline.

Anyone feel that this episode wasn't long enough for everything they wanted to include?

And what happens at the end of this episode actually prove that perhaps Faraday was wrong about his theories? They may be the variables but everything that's suppose to happen will inevitably happen?

What an amazing episode last night! It was so chock full of revelations it felt like you got a lot of episodes worth of action in just one. John Locke is THE MAN!

Anyone want to do a live blog/chat during next week's 2-hour episode? We can use the same software that we used for the oscar live blog and share LOST thoughts and theories during the commercial breaks. Anyone can log in as a guest and attend.

Let me know, Lost fans!
