"Let's face it, dude: Ewoks suck."

Is there a fourth group at work in this show? I'm beginning to suspect there is, but we'll get to that after the play-by-play.

In 1977

- Miles is born on The Island, though we don't actually see this happen.
- Miles parents split up acrimoniously, and Miles and his mom leave the Island, though we don't actually see this happen, and it's possible it actualy takes place in early 1978.
- Kate and Sawyer come back from giving lil' Ben to The Others.
- Sawyer has other matters to attend to, and asks Miles to wipe the tapes from the Sonar Fence.

TV REVIEW: LOST: Some Like it Hoth

sysadmin 2.0's picture

The comedy team of Miles and Hurley take their act on the road, Miles finds he may not hold a Candle to his dad, Bad dentistry can kill and Hurley has a screenplay he wants to show Mr. Lucas.

I'm going to skip the Play by Play tonight, as 3.0 will undoubtedly do a better job at it than I will. However, this Miles-Centric ep had some issues, which I'll dive into immediately.

TV Review: LOST: Dead is Dead

"Ben, the two of us need look no more
We both found what we were looking for...."

Ben goes to the main island to be judged by Smokey the Monster, there's something up back at the beach and John Locke is still Not Quite Dead.

Tonight, we just had the "normal" flashbacks, as we looked at Ben's life and relationship with Charles Widmore. We learned lots o' stuff
-How Ben stole Alex
-How Widmore and Ben met, and unmet in a fashion that was not altogether meet...
-How Ben got the crap beaten out of him... this time
-How and why Widmore was kicked off the island

EPISODE REVIEW: Lost: “Whatever Happened, Happened.” (Season 5, Episode 11)

Republibot 3.0's picture

On the one hand, not too much happens in this episode. Last week left off with a cliffhanger, this week resolves the cliffhanger and sets up another, broader one. We get a bit more backstory on the missing years for the ones who made it away from the island, and there’s a lot of exposition. Not much happens in a narrative sense, but in a larger sense this episode is kind of like a fulcrum about which the story has been turning.

TV Review: LOST: He's Our You

Sayid begins by breaking the back of a chicken and ends by shooting another.
(Okay. Not really. But I couldn't resist the turn of phrase)

Mild Spoilers and Paradox alert!

In 1977. Sawyer finds that everything that was under control is now spiraling out of his grasp. Everything from his professional competence to his personal life is slowly spinning out of reach. And amazingly enough, it's not really Jack or Kate's fault.

It really IS Sayid's

(Extremely Belated) EPISODE REVIEWS: Lost: “LaFleur” (Season 5, Episode 8)

Republibot 3.0's picture

I’m sorry for how late this review is. Real life has interfered yet again with my glorious little dream world, and I wasn’t actually able to even watch the episode until yesterday. Actually, owing to band practice (“Republibot 3.0 And The Republibot 3.0 Orchestra, Featuring Republibot 3.0“) most of the Lost reviews have been delayed by a day or two, but this week was just late out of all proportion. I’m sorry about that. I hate to keep people hanging. Republibot: You heard it here last!

Anyway…

IN THE PRESENT (2007)

TV Review: LOST: Namaste

Tonight on the island, our various players begin to assimilate into various positions, like a chess board being set up.

Let's take a look!...spoilers follow

In 1977, the Oceanic Four get integrated into Dharma through rather clever manipulation by Sawyer. It's obvious that they will be trouble eventually, but for right now, Jack is a janitor...
