Tonight begins premiere week (for us, anyway) with a big budget S-F show that will be compared to another extremely successful ABC show. How was it? How does it compare? And why is there a kangaroo?
Tons of spoilers after the jump

EPISODE REVIEW: Lost: "The Incident" (Season 5, episodes 16 and 17)

Republibot 3.0's picture

From the very beginning of ‘Lost,’ it has been apparent that there’s something at work in the lives of the lostaways that is larger than they are. They’re part of a much bigger scheme that they, themselves, are mostly unaware of much like an ant is unaware of the larger meaning of the battlefield its mound happens to be in, or the way an individual gear in your car’s transmission is unaware of the larger international economy that gave rise to it’s own existence and function.

LOST FINALE COMMENTS THREAD

While I still attempt to process three hours of LOST (There will be our usual pair of LOST reviews posted in a few hours), I decided to try something new and throw out a post for the purpose of soliciting comments. Log in using your facebook account, or create a Republibot one- and let us know what you think about tonight's ep...

Movie Review: STAR TREK

Republibot 1.0's picture

To preface, let me be clear – I am not a big fan of JJ Abrams. I have maybe seen 15 minutes tops of Alias across three episodes, and for Lost you could safely add another 10 minutes to that total. I loathed Star Trek: The Next Generation and had no use for the movies. I cannot speak intelligently about any of the other Next Generation series other than crack Borg Jokes about self-important looking status climbers sporting their latest blue tooth ear pieces or an occasional completely out of context sexist Seven of Nine comment.

EPISODE REVIEW: Lost: “Follow the Leader” (Season 5, Episode 15)

Republibot 3.0's picture

There’s a curious feeling that things are getting better and better in 2007, and worse and worse in 1977, a feeling that while Locke may be on the edge of saving the world in the present (or close to the present), Jack and company are on the edge of destroying not only the world, but time itself thirty years before. It’s uneasy, and I have to think deliberately off-balance. As usual, there’s more going on here than anyone is telling, but here’s what we do know:

TV Review:LOST: Follow The Leader (Season 5 Ep 15/101)

sysadmin 2.0's picture

Tonight's review is going to be brief... partly because there's not a lot to comment directly on, but also because I got some Republi-bifocals this evening and am having a hard time seeing to work. So...

I'm jumping straight to observations... go watch the ep on Hulu or something, it's worth it.

Observations: Richard really doesn't age, and doesn't have nearly the clue that you'd think he'd have. So his remarkable presence of mind seems to be the result of Locke telling him what to do...

EPISODE REVIEW: Lost: “Variable” (Season 5, Episode 14)

Republibot 3.0's picture

The hundredth episode of Lost gives me something that few shows can say this far in to their run: “Well I didn’t see that coming.” Granted, Lost has managed to do that for us fairly consistently through its run, and this season in particular has been pretty much a case study in dropping a hard plot twist sixteen times per season, yet still managing to keep a coherent story. Even so: I didn’t see that coming.

Play by play:

Episode Review: LOST: The Variable

sysadmin 2.0's picture

On this, Republibotlet 2.2's birthday, I saw the most horrific thing I've ever seen a mother do to a son-- and quite a bit more.

Spoilers, ho!

Unfortunately, I may've missed a few things, so I'm counting on you folks to fill me in.

When I got the TV turned on after the mandatory 15 minutes of deguassing that the equipment requires after a presidential 'news conference', I saw that the Oceanic however-many were having a confab in Sawyer's cottage. Oh yeah... Daniel was trying to convince Dr. Chang to stop drilling for chronotons.

Quasi-Episode Sort of Review: Lost: The Story of the Oceanic Six

sysadmin 2.0's picture

The sole purpose of this episode was to put the last season or so in (subjective) chronological order.

It succeeded.

No real insights, except an awful lot happened in about 48 hours or so.

Still depressed about Kings.
