(A Very Belated)TV REVIEW: LOST: "The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham" (Season 5, Episode7)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Owing to bad planning and entirely too much real life, I wasn't able to watch this episode until Sunday, and even then it was a struggle to fit it in. But I watched it, and I ended up being disappointed. There's little more annoying than longing for something for a half a week longer than anyone else, and it being pretty meh when you finally get to see it.

TV REVIEW:LOST: The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham (SPOILERS)

sysadmin 2.0's picture

Tonight, we get the complete life story of Jeremy Bentham, the alter ego of John Locke. From his birth in Tunisia to his death in Los Angeles, Mr. Bentham failed miserably in bringing the O-6 back to the island....

But we knew that, didn't we? So what DIDN'T we know?

Spoilers ahead

Well, somehow Widmore seems to believe that he was the leader of the Others (only they weren't 'Others' to him...) and that John needs to bring everybody back to the island before a war starts.

EPISODE REVIEWS: Lost : "Flight 316" (Season 5, Episode 6)

Haven't we been here before?

We start out with what seems like a flashback to Jack awakening in the bamboo forrest in the first episode, but which quickly proves to be a flash forward involving less impaling to the time when they get *back* to the island.

TV REVIEW:LOST:316

sysadmin 2.0's picture

John Locke has to make a long journey in a borrowed Christian's shoes without taking a single step. The O-6 take a journey to a pit and a pendulum, more numbers start to make sense, and people make less sense.

And regardless of what Linus says, Ol' Roundhead's demise lays squarely on the Shepherd's shoulders.

EPISODE REVIEWS: Lost: “This Place is Death” (Season 5, Episode 5)

Republibot 3.0's picture

The good news is that circumstances have conspired to allow me to have my review online promptly this week. The bad news is that I’m way under the weather, so I might not be as insightful as I normally am. (Assuming insight it be, and not just pulling stuff out of my ass.) If I survive my current ailment, next week you'll all be returned to your regularly scheduled delays.

TV REVIEW:LOST:This Place Is Death

sysadmin 2.0's picture

Team Nosebleed gains one, loses two and Linus is still waiting on the great pumpkin and gives a woman a wedding band at a church....

Mild spoilers ahead.....

We open with Jin and Danielle "Crazy French Lady" Rousseau going through the events that made Danielle nuts. We see Smokey the Monster devour a few folks, and infect the rest with some major weirdness. Meanwhile (does that term actually mean anything anymore on this show?) Team Locke is hacking through the jungle, looking for a kleenex for all the nosebleeds.

TV Review: Lost: “The Little Prince” (Season 5, Episode 5)

Republibot 3.0's picture

It’s all about family, and to a lesser extent it’s about growth, but mostly, I think, it’s about family. As Miles O’Brian said on DS9 once, “You can choose your job and your friends, but your family - that’s in the stars.” And sometimes the stars are extremely pissy when you try to second-guess their decisions. But we’ll get to that in a bit.

This week’s action was divided between Team Ben and Team Locke. Team Hume is entirely absent this week.

As Republibot 3 will do a more complete review in the morning, this is just a quick hit to take a look at some of the higher points and the questions raised and answers offered.
Some spoilers ahead, so consider yourself warned....

Okay, so now we know who seems to want Kate and Aaron separated- though it looks like it was all to manipulate Kate into being in the right place at the right time. Serves her right for being predictable.

Thoughts on the Premiere Episode of Lost, Season Five

Charlie W. Starr's picture

There are two kinds of lost fanatics: on the one hand, those who delve into its mysteries with Sherlock Holmsian passion in order to unlock the island’s secrets, and on the other hand, me. When I was first asked to write a chapter for an anthology on Lost a few years ago I decided to become the champion of the theory that no one else would champion: that the key to getting Lost is staying lost—that surrender to the joy of mystery is what makes Lost such a joy.
