because we need one.

Indeed!

The guy who plays Yemi is in the guest cast for tonight's ep, and it airs on Dia De Los Muertos, well done Lindelof et al.

nklshs (nklshs), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 19:03 (fifteen years ago) link

I don't know how I feel about everything being so segmented this season -- I mean, we've had four episodes so far, and Locke, Sayid, Sun, and Jin have only been in one each. So I'm excited about the Losties from the beach going on an expedition to find their friends. I'm really hoping that this 6-episode mini-arc will end with some kind of coming together.

jaymc (jaymc), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 19:15 (fifteen years ago) link

I hope so too. But with cliffhangery momentum to lead into February's resumption.

I was about to relay what my cable channel guide says for tonight, but maybe it's too spoilery, plus everybody else probably already has their own source for the same info.

I Am Curious (George) (Slight Return) (Rock Hardy), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 19:20 (fifteen years ago) link

So, tonite is the last new episode until February?

grady (grady), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 19:46 (fifteen years ago) link

No, there's two more, including tonight.

jaymc (jaymc), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 19:48 (fifteen years ago) link

Last night I was thinking a lot about how the actor who plays Benry is really, really fantastic. Maybe I am reading more into it than I should but he always seems to show a lot of depth (hints of insecurity and weirdness when he is being big boss-man around the survivors, always seems way more composed and sure of himself interacting with the Others). It makes me happy is all.

jaymc (jaymc), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 20:12 (fifteen years ago) link

haha, john, you are so hooked on a tv show!!

wait, so this ep and next ep and then no more new ones until february, are you kidding me? (see, i only watch tv shows, i srsly rarely know of tv things beyond the fictional spehere. ok, maybe actors'/directors'/writers' names but not much more really. reason #54543 to love the internet information zone and its insta-knowledge giving.)

impermanent rrrobyn (rrrobyn), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 20:16 (fifteen years ago) link

Jessie OTM re Henjamin/Benry. Also a very good sense of humor - his delivery on such a simple line as "you don't" (re: Sawyer "how do I know that's the same bunny?") - and weird tenderness that you almost NEVER get with tv villains.

And re: segmentation of cast, I've always loved in stupid fantasy novels etc when the disparate groups of characters miraculously come back together just in time for the most super important anyone-not-totally-bad-ass-need-not-apply missions, and am looking forward to February (as far away as it is) for Locke Sayid Des etc jungle adventures.

Also I hope they make "Nikki" and "Paulo" less shitty and/or more dead really soon.

nklshs (nklshs), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 20:30 (fifteen years ago) link

At least Paolo is hot. Nikki looks a whole lot like Fergie from Black Eyed Peas.

Jessie the Monster (scarymonster), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 20:41 (fifteen years ago) link

I chuckled at this from the TWOP recap:

Paulo is on the beach, knocking guava or mangos or whatever into the ocean. Oh, Paulo! At it again! Everybody drink!

jaymc (jaymc), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 20:46 (fifteen years ago) link

Only it's okay to pee yr pants on craphole island.

Me and my roommate wager on LOST a bunch. We wager bottles of wine for some reason. Here is our current anty:

He bet me 1 bottle we would see Michael/Walt in first 6 ep story arc.
I bet him 1 bottle we would see smoke monster in only ONE of last 2 eps of first 6.
He bet me 1 bottle "Karl" is an off-islander.
I bet him 1 bottle Ben and Tom are lovers.
He bet me 1 bottle the Borat movie would only play in 2 theaters here (unrelated and kind of retarded on his part).

nklshs (nklshs), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 20:48 (fifteen years ago) link

I bet him 1 bottle Ben and Tom are lovers.

i think you're gonna win this one

jergins (jergins), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 20:53 (fifteen years ago) link

I met a lady who teaches at the private school that real-life Benry's real-life children attend. She said "it's creepy" when he comes to pick them up.

grady (grady), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 21:03 (fifteen years ago) link

Paulo is on the beach, knocking guava or mangos or whatever into the ocean.

It suddenly occurred to me that it's stupid and unrealistic for him to be destroying part of their FOOD SUPPLY, air-drop or no air-drop.

I Am Curious (George) (Slight Return) (Rock Hardy), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 21:13 (fifteen years ago) link

It looked like rocks to me. At first I was like "do they really have enough golf balls to be knocking them into the ocean like that?" But i'm pretty sure they were rocks.

grady (grady), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 21:16 (fifteen years ago) link

But they were splattering, weren't they?

I Am Curious (George) (Slight Return) (Rock Hardy), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 21:19 (fifteen years ago) link

I thought they looked like kiwis, so, maybe hairy rocks? Or possibly freeze-dried polar bear nutsacks?

xpost no I think they had some "ping"

nklshs (nklshs), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 21:20 (fifteen years ago) link

freeze-dried polar bear nutsacks

obv. nicka's new screen name.

grady (grady), Wednesday, 1 November 2006 21:25 (fifteen years ago) link

I think fuselage.com just blocked my new thread attempt because it had the word "boobs" in the title (in ref to Alex grabbing Kate's boobs in s2 finale). This is an outrage!

Apparently they are moving L O S T to 10 pm EST in 07 (possibly so as not to have to compete w/ American Idol for ratings). I can barely contain myself waiting for it to come on at 9.

Dragons (per the previous FAQ answer) (nklshs), Wednesday, 6 December 2006 14:01 (fourteen years ago) link

10 would make my life easier as i usually am out until 9:30 on wednesdays. which means i either tape it and sit there WAITING FOR IT TO END or watch the last half and then the first.

but why i really came here was to point out there's a new podcast. cuse/lindeloff swear many answers will be reveal'd in 2007. mmm-hm.

Who?

I kind of have prepped myself for the wait until Feb., and if they move it up 4 weeks, does that mean another 4 week hiatus midseason? Fuck that.

ABC I don't think are taking into account that there are a lot of LOST fans who aren't really watching ANYTHING on Wed nights now.

it was a bit alarming how at the end of each of the new episodes i would be roaring "FOR FUCKS SAKE IS THAT IT??!" every time. 'moon on a stick' i guess.

sede vacante (blueski), Thursday, 21 December 2006 14:51 (fourteen years ago) link

there are two main areas of frustration:

1) quantity of stuff happening

2) quantity of stuff NOT happening

sede vacante (blueski), Thursday, 21 December 2006 14:53 (fourteen years ago) link

There should be some kinda retreat for LOST fans that are losing the faith. I am very saddened by SteveM's disappointment.

teh_kit (g-kit), Thursday, 21 December 2006 14:55 (fourteen years ago) link

i was, in all honesty, a bit let down by the sixer, 4 & 5 in particular (iirc). but it was awkward having just the six and also i personally prefer it on ttv (have to get used to that). i am totally stoked about the next batch.

temporary enrique (temporary enrique), Thursday, 21 December 2006 14:56 (fourteen years ago) link

i love the way that lost fans are riled by the heroes chat. i count myself a fan BTW, and chances are i'd like heroes if i got round to watching it - the writers are all best mates or summink.

what woman thing?

Heroes is better than Lost. I can fall asleep during Lost and still not miss anything. You can watch all of the Heroes episodes on the NBC website w/o having to download. I didn't watch it for awhile because everyone who told me it was amazing was an asshole.

Carey (Carey), Wednesday, 21 February 2007 13:07 (fourteen years ago) link

I sometimes feel they could stick an episode of Amazing Stories on and I would think it was someone's flashback.

Carey (Carey), Wednesday, 21 February 2007 13:15 (fourteen years ago) link

you can watch LOST on the ABC website.

METAL ROBOTIC HEAD FACE (scarymonster), Wednesday, 21 February 2007 17:53 (fourteen years ago) link

what woman thing?

The fact that the women are comic-book cliche women, like strippers or cheerleaders and they get to be sexually victimized. Although someone did point out upthread that it's getting better. I don't know, I gave up after episode 10, when they actually appeared to save the cheerleader, although maybe they didn't. I had lost all interest at that stage.

accentmonkey (accentmonkey), Thursday, 22 February 2007 00:45 (fourteen years ago) link

Women be getting deaded a bit more than men, I think.

This was my EXACT beef with Heroes and why I gave up after about three episodes.

unless you count that as a revelation and "we are here to watch" as a satisfying explanation! guh?

although I liked when sawyer punched carl and told him to cowboy up (possibly Boston Red Sox reference #2435)

dmr (dmr), Thursday, 22 February 2007 15:15 (fourteen years ago) link

cowboy up was a term in use long before that steroid laden fat-ass millar made it their rallying cry.

nicka's probably over on nu-ILX pointing out thirty other things that we missed.

I personally noted: remember when Jin & Eko saw "Others" walking through the jungle, barefoot and hauling a teddy bear? The tail-section children were wearing shoes, and the teddy bear was in decent shape (as opposed to jungle-Others' teddy bear, mangled and missing a leg). There are still more other Others.

nklshs (nklshs), Thursday, 22 February 2007 19:02 (fourteen years ago) link

Anyway, the title (Stranger In A Strange Land) implies that Jack is going to become some kind of spiritual revolutionery among the Others and inspire crazy Martian cult orgies, which I am 1,000% in support of.

The Others' purpose on the island is to film a sequel to The Wedding Crashers.

Carey (Carey), Friday, 23 February 2007 03:16 (fourteen years ago) link

remember when they talked about how there would be a big shift in one character's attitude/outlook midway thru this series? i guess they mean Jack may start feeling more sympathetic to the Others now they're moving him to the village, probably all building up to some 'kill them or us' dilemma. tho he's resisted well so far.

had Jack actually met Alex before this episode?

resumo impetus (blueski), Friday, 23 February 2007 09:59 (fourteen years ago) link

No, and in fact I don't think he's ever been around to hear Rousseau say her stolen baby's name was Alex, either.

Kate should know who exactly Alex is though, after her adventure with Claire and Rousseau @ the medical hatch.
