I am so excited. Although i am in stupid Student Government and we have meetings on wednesday at 8pm. They last a few hours. I will explain to them that we should watch lost during the movie. It makes sense.

what is with you having all your shit go down around LOST time. how did you ever get hooked on the show, when there is always badguys trying to stop you from watching it. Last week it was the threat matrix of electrical power, this week is is the student government.

i cant wait to hear what these villains try to do next week to thwart your plans o watch lost.

it might go something like this...

Wednesday is when they release the "Ninja Attack League" on campass. this ususally happens at about 8:45pm. so i better have someone defeat them in time for LOST.

yes!

I thought 30 Rock was kinda lame, I don't like Tracy Morgan in a lead role.

Ralph- said...


HERE
is a really poorly edited video that i found on youtube, but it definitly shows the inconsistencies of scott and steve on lost.

aimee in little rock said...

I watched about 5 minutes of 30 Rock and liked it, but ended up getting distracted by Ralph and some other junk, so I don't have enough to go on to have a decent opinion.

Ralph, I have a MYOKOM w/SAS camisole photo now, give me some time to find my card reader & get it up on my profile or something.

That's pretty decent that we learned 2 of the Others' full names now.

Not one of the greatest episodes ever, but I was impressed by the writers actually answering questions. And letting Sun kick some ass!

sayten said...

i thought this episode was great - especially compared to 3.01. gives a fresh spin on sun and jin's relationship and the motivations behind her leaving and her father's motivations as well.

i really enjoyed the baseball scene at the end - that was a great throwback to the first season.

URMothersMullet said...

Tracy Morgan kicks ass. "Now why dont you drop that space suit and let me smack that phat ass!"

I liked tonite's Lost, but I am easy like Sunday morning.

Can't wait to hear what the Sas and Dharmalars are going to say about it

My theory is that Sun tossed her ex-lover out of the window. She was in the apartment and it was an easy enough task since he had his ass already handed to him.

She has the killer instinct like her dad, unlike Jin. This ep proved she's got a lot of skeletons in her closet.

And her killing Jae supports the old theory of all the Lostaways being stone cold killers.

BAM!

Suns not just LITERAY is VERY! (sluty)

Benjamin Linus is a playa. He was hittin Juliette it appears at one time, but he didn't hit it to good or his hoe would of made him soup.

dude that was a fuckin sweet episode man.....please let me get a lil myokomwsas with my coffee

Mike Campbell said...

First off GO RED SOX!!!

Ralph hates me :( i always Tivo lost ralph i only watch 3 or 4 out of the whole year live.

I didn't like the sun and jin flashback. For the past few of theirs, they start to fight then in the end they are happy again. AND sun is a cheating lying bitch. I used to think Jin was the jerk in the relationship, now we know they are both evil in a way.

I don't even know what to say about the rest of the stuff. I will watch it again.

Mike Campbell said...

Ok so either the main land sends benry and his crew tapes of whats going on in the world or they have a satellite dish on the island. A big satellite dish and that satellite dish is....

THE SMOKE MONSTER.

If we are are to believe the preview Locke is going to fight the smoke monster to save eko. Locke destorys the smoke monster aka satellite dish and benry and compiney get pissed they miss the new popular show two years ago. Too tired to be witty. How is that for crazy theory?

stephsmith said...

Do people seriously think Sun killed Jae?

What is up with Mr Paik's eye?

A surprisingly excellent episode.

aimee in little rock said...

I enjoyed the scene where Ben anchored us all back into reality by showing us the baseball game, and reminding us that a world still exists out there - it was almost like seeing Penelope again. Plus it reminded us that we're still in November of 2004, not 2006.

Interesting that a man in his 40s would have spent his whole life on the island. I still think he could be Radzinksy even if the names are different. He'd know that island awfully well to draw a map such as the one on the blast door, and know shit like the burial site of Magnus Hanso, etc. He lied about his name once, it's not like he couldn't have done it before.

I like Sun a whole lot more after watching this episode. That gunslinging, lying little slut has got my full-fledged support. I was yelling "shoot her, shoot her!" at the TV, and was super happy when she did. I didn't like that bitch Connie or the way she was talking to Juliet. What a cunt. Go Sun.

Sun is a chip off the old block. Amoral, no problem with lying to save herself even if it hurts others. She is a killer and I wouldn't be suprised if she pushed her lover. I can't wait to see what villany Sun has up her sleeves next! Now that Kate is in a sun dress we need a new bad ass lady.

I don't think Sun pushed him, she had more reason to run away with him than to kill him. But I like they way they're changing everyone's character. I hope they change Jack's character soon. Into a dead one.

K from the T-dot said...

While I was watching the episode, I didn't like it...too many commercials. 5 mins story...5 mins commercials (I guess that's what you get with such a popular show). When I watched it again this morning (commercial free) it was better.

I think Sun's ex-lova was pushed out the window, I think he jumped. He was holding the pearl necklace... Aimee, I was also screaming SHOOT HER!!! at the TV when Sun had the gun pointed at Colleen. I'm glad she did it, but now they have no boat :( and now I guess Sun will be "one of the bad ones"

How the F do The Ohters now everyone's name???

I didn't like how Benry was observing Sawyer and Kate in the cages. It was a little un-realistic that the sound quality would be so great (but who ever said anything realistic ever happens on this show). I did like how Sawyer took the advantage of making out with Kate just to figure out who he could "take-on" when--and if--they plan to escape. But then again, Benry is always watching!

And Alex...she really looks like Kate! Why didn't she tell Kate who she was, Kate's smart enough to figure out she's Danielle's daughter. I bet Alex and Karl are a part of the Other set of Others on the island. In the (pathetic) offical LOST Vidcast they did say there is more than one group of "Others"

The best part of this week's show was actually the preview for next week...Locke says, "I'm going to save Mr. Eko". Awesome.

I can't wait

aimee in little rock said...

Yeah, Kate could have asked Sawyer if there was a dude named Karl in her cage before she was. Then Sawyer woulda been like, "How the hell did ya know that, freckles?" and Kate would explain Alex and junk, followed by some distant, thoughtful stares and a trombone roll.

Mike Campbell said...

I think that Benry isn't going to tell the people in charge of watching sawyer and kate they are planning another attack on them. I think Benry will have something set up that if they get past the main group there will be something in the wing waiting to catch them again.

To me it seems like Benry runs things by giving people a set of orders to follow. If they don't do the job right they are expendable and someone will be waiting to fix the thing.

But thats just me

Jimmy said...

I think it's a shame that because Sun sleeps with a dude she digs she is then labeled as "a villain/slut/badass". but anyway...

I do think though that the primary purpose of the Sun story was to demonstrate that although she seems a pillar of reliability and truth, she actually does lie...and convincingly.

Kimberly...yes, the Official Lost VidCast was fucking pathetic.

Ralph- said...

did anyone notice that the scene with Alex was the same as the deleted scene between claire and libby from season 2?

Jellymanianos said...

thank god for the breasts of sun and kate - is it me or did they look particularly good?

Mike Campbell said...

i didn't really notice Sun's boobs but kate was showin the world that episode. i give them a TEN!

aimee in little rock said...

I would throw a bald Korean out a window to have breasts like Kate's.

Jellymanianos said...

there was a bit on the boat were jin spun sun around and my eyes pretty much popped out of my head - quite impressive - she did well!

For me, juliet wins the lost boob competition hands down.

Pretty decent episode i thought. Jin is a proper mentalist when it comes to "delivering messages".

aimee in little rock said...

Boobs boobs boobs, okay we get it. Everyone on the show has great tits.

Wow, did anyone check out Sawyer's man junk? [insert sarcastic grunt]

Mike Campbell said...

i am sorry aimee doctor jack can save me any day. oh baby oh baby

Joe said...

OK, back to boobs... Juliet wins in a walk, but Kate is right up there... Sun makes a decent push, but I think Claire gives her a run for third (if I can even remember what she looks like at this point)...

Aimee wins the SaS portion of the contest, hands down...

Kim Raver takes the gold in "The Nine"...

This is fun.

sayten said...

wow, next week's episode is going to tear shit up.

canadian promo: click.

URMothersMullet said...

Rose has the biggest set on the Island and who wouldn't want to see those sweater hogs? They could be used as weapons against the Others to blind them!

I think Benry/Linus needs some new strange, he has tapped all the female 'Others' and Kate is on his radar. Explains the sundress and scars on her wrists. (wink wink)

Rachel said...

Here's a random thought... you know how the map that Locke found says something about one of the Dharma facilities "divesting" in 1985? What if Alex and Karl were a Dharma experiment gone wrong? That would explain why Alex is hiding in bushes and Karl is locked in a cage... If they were born in 1985 that would make them 19 in 2004. Hmmm...

aimee in little rock said...

Rachel, they do appear to be the youngest islanders that we know of, prior to the Flight 815 arrivals. And once they arrived, the Others still wanted youngsters, as we saw the children from the tail section taken, Aaron was almost taken, and Walt was taken.

So I don't think whatever experiment Alex & Karl were a part of has completely "divested"; obviously the people who run the island have maintained an interest in the youths, aka "yutes".

But teenagers are awfully rebellious, and I'm sure whatever Alex & Karl are witnessing, they believe is wrong, and are trying to not be a part of.

Rachel said...

Good point, Amy. I wonder if Ben(ry) was that rebellious as a teen... maybe it takes a whole lot of brainwashing to follow along with their plans.

aimee in little rock said...

You would think that not knowing the outside world would make them more compliant than anyone, but that just goes to show you...humanity is humanity, and there will always be opposition.

This perfect utopian society that the Others apparently tried to create obviously is an impossibility, but Ben Linus is just as stubborn as Jack, and just refuses to accept it.

Is this Saywer in this picture? Or is it his stand in?
