LOST Notes, 513: Some Like It Hoth

This week: When you heard the title was "Some Like It Hoth," you probably had a pretty good idea of how the episode was going to go.  You were mostly right. Miles Straume: Third day we were here, I was on line at the cafeteria and my mother got in line behind me.  That was my first clue. LOST, Season 5, Episode 13 Some Like It Hoth I. M. Night ShymaLOST A. Maybe we don't see Miles' power that often because he still doesn't quite know how to harness it? Sometimes he need...

LOST Notes, 512: Dead Is Dead

This week: "Dead is Dead" (the phrase, not the episode) might be the biggest sack of shit they've ever tried to feed us. They may as well have called this one "No Seriously, Walt Is Old Because Time Travel" or "Jack Is A Reasonable Man" or "Different Haircut = Different Ages!!!". John Locke: ...then I'm sure the monster will understand. LOST, Season 5, Episode 12 Dead Is Dead I. Ben Sans Innocence Means Less Sandwiches And Longing, More Attempted Murder A. Well naturally, because W...

In Which Kate Learns That The Movie "Parenthood" Is Not A Training Video A. If his latest turn as LaFleur doesn't give you enough respect for Sawyer (his hangup on fake names notwithstanding),...

LOST Notes, 510: He's Our You

This week: It takes a whole episode of manufactured tension for Sayid to finally do what he was born to do in "He's Our You". James "Sawyer" Ford: Three years, no burning buses. Ya'll are back for one day... LOST, Season 5, Episode 10 He's Our You I. The One Where Sayid Has A Flashback Episode That Makes Me Wish I Was Watching A Kate Flashback Episode A. First of all, I'm not buying any misdirection on whether or not Sayid was once a good person, even if the kids from Slumdog Milli...

LOST Notes, 509: Namaste

This week: Say "Namaste" to the returning castaways as Kate puts the "drama" in "Dharma"...or something. Kate's stupid, that's my point. Christian Shephard: I'm sorry, but you have a bit of a journey ahead of you. LOST, Season 5, Episode 9 Namaste I. The Re-Made Fantasy Island, The One Where Malcom McDowell Had Just Started To Urinate On His Career And Character Development Was Replaced By Low-Budget CGI A.

LOST Notes, 508: LaFleur

This week: In-jokes, awkward pauses and plot development abound as Sawyer & co. get stuck in the Wayback Machine Miles Straume: We don't get involved, right? That's what you said?

LOST Notes, 507: The Life And Death Of Jeremy Bentham

This week: The Life And Death Of Jeremy Bentham proves that black people are incredibly death-prone in the LOST-verse, and that Jack and Kate are douchebags in the past, the present and now the future. But we already knew that. John Locke: I promise you, I'm very much alive. Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Hey Susie, am I talking to a dude in a wheelchair right now? Susie: Yup. Hugo "Hurley" Reyes: Whoa, dude! LOST, Season 5, Episode 7 The Life And Death OF Jeremy Bentham ...

What do you get when you combine Houston hipster hangouts, wannabe MILFs, barstools, and low-rise jeans? Some of the best crack in the land. I particularly admire the lack of anything -- even a thong -- obscuring the view. That's how you can tell we're dealing with a real woman here, not some just-legal still-exploring college thing. My wife and I eventually got back to enjoying our food and drink (both very good and reasonably priced, especially at happy hour) in time to get to the main even...

This week: On the nose right from the start, This Place Is Death has no place for subtlety. Jack Shephard: What are you doing? Benjamin Linus: What I'm doing is helping you, and if you had any idea what I've had to do to keep you safe, to keep your friends safe, you'd never stop thanking me. LOST, Season 5, Episode 5 This Place Is Death A. Does Sun giving Ji Yeon her own cell phone make her a good mother? You have to give her some credit – she wouldn&rs...
