Lame discussions and poorly constructed theories about the hit ABC series "Lost."

I'm stealing first since I've been AWOL for the last few days. I wouldn't normally do that when I post the thread. I've been actually doing work and stuff!But hey, it's Lostnesday...fuck work!
I have that DVD. Somewhere.
I've never seen it. They just didn't have episode promotional photos (again), so I looked for a cool photo of Cusick to use, and liked this one. I can't use any of his short hair pictures; he looks so odd in them.
Who wants to place bets that Charlie will die tonight? I'll say 2 to 1 odds.
No, 3 to 1. I'm spoiler free, so I really have no idea here.
Naw, not in a Desmond episode. It could be the beginning of the end for him tonight.
But maybe that's the whole point. We've come to expect a character's death to occur during one of their flashback episodes, so it's become predictable, and the writers know this now. What makes you think they wouldn't change things on us now?
We have to always "think outside the magic box", once a pattern has been established.
On the Official podcast they were droping hints about the Death of charlie. Compairing it to when boone died in the season. I think there might be a charlie episode later in the season though. Although a lot of whos flashback is when has been wrong. I am saying he will be alive a few more shows.So there is a lot of Save our Show talk out there. What shows do you want to see next year? or should i ask this question over the weekend? since its Lostnesday... I want to see Veronica Mars and How i Met your Mother Back!
What shows are in jeopardy?As long as my Thursday night comedy block, Heroes, and Lost are all safe, I'll be sound as a pound.
Why the crud is it only saying Michael now. I want my picture to show :(
Scrubs is on the cutting block. There is talk that ABC wants it. That sounds weird to me.
I love HIMYM. Barney is The Man.It would be a travesty is Friday Night Lights wasn't renewed.I don't watch Veronica Mars but did I hear they may jump ahead a few years for next season? That sounds interesting.
I always knew Desmond had to be Jesus. I mean look at him!
As for tonight's episode I really hope I can tune in to see it, because I will be performing in a concert that may go into Lost time. This must not happen!
I know this is so last thred but i really wanted in...1)Brian Wilson - Barenaked Ladies - Gordon2) What I Didn't Expect Was The Physical Examinations. - Max Brooks - World War Z(disk 1) - I have a lot of audiobook for when i drive a lot.3) First Date - Blink 182 - Take off you Coat and Jacket - Love them when i was in high school.4) Sample in a Jar - Phish - Hoist - Nothing wrong with a little jam5) Trouble - Dave Matthews - Some Devil - Off his solo album. Seeing him and Tim Reynolds on friday. Can't Wait!!!6) Butterfly - Weezer - Pinkerton7) Traffic in the Sky - Jack Johnson - On and On8) Ghost Train - Counting Crows - August and Everything After9) Faker - Moe. - Dither10) Truckin' - The Greatful Dead - Skeletons From The ClosetSorry if i bored anyone
the return of Aimee! love it. glad to have you back.i don't think that Charlie will die but maybe he'll get injured and will slowly die over a couple of episodes? that'd be sweet. do we know if Charlie will actually die? maybe he'll stick around. maybe he'll make it off the island and tour Finland (again).where're Holli and her superhero name generator?michael, enjoy the concert.
Sorry for the screw up on the last thread. The ether got to me. Here's the Superhero Generator I hope.Silver Dancer accompanied by Caruthers in my new AvatarShh, it's really Holli
I hate to post and run, but I must. Caruthers and I are heading out in our nuclear jet (which given the price of gas is a damn site better than my actual car). My string snow suit is at the cleaners. It's too hot in Memphis for it today. Caruthers has found alternate outfitting for us though (think Blades of Glory). Have faith that when I return Marvin the Unspeakable (crap I spoke him) will be vanquished with my psychotronic spear and lighting bolts from my carbine. Get the spaghetti ready for my celebratory feast.Silver Dancer

I was just thinking of the post-coital ice cream scene from last week.How the fuck did they get ice cream on the island? Wouldn't it melt on the way down from the palette drop? Unless ol' Patchy was making it over at McDarhma Farm between brewing pitchers of ice tea. I could see the Ben flaskback now; he's sitting on the porch with Juliette at night, and suddenly BOOM! and the exlposion is visible in the distance. He turns to Juliette and says "Shit. no more ice cream."
"What shall we do with this Desmond of Nazareth?"Fired up on tonight's episode, guys. I don't have much to say now, but I'll be too busy to say anything later so I thought I'd at least post something.
I'm sorry. I couldn't hear anything you just said. I was too busy picturing Ralph in a hardened leotard.

addicted to squash is a great tragic flaw.
Orange pee from too much butternut squash. Captain Cat lives in shame.

Kim that joke is too soon. The wounds are still fresh from coming in third last season to your second place Jays. Serously though if the Sox get swept by the T-Dot Jays i will have to cry alone in the corner while your words of pain echo in my mind.
Silver Dancer has returned. Marvin is now speakable. What's the deal with Aimee stealing my sidekick, Caruthers. I guess he's into blondes. Could Caruthers be Goodwin?Is there anything non-spoilery about the episode we could make predictions about? I'm tired of spaghetti now. I wish my favorite food were pie.Silver Dancer(Holli, but don't tell anyone or I'll have to shoot you lightning.)
John the Evil sounds like a dastardly nemesis.

dude... you get the Dr. Sam Beckett plane AND sean astin as your sidekick? no fair. that guy was in The Goonies!
Mike...I know I may be speaking too soon, but in honour of this weeks Desmond-centric episode, I had 'flashes before my eyes'I'm excited about tonight's episode--but aren't we all??
Trevor - that's really good. Our collective superpower can be to merge and trasform into anything (like the team on Freakshow) by performing a simultaneous backward and forward grapevine followed by a Barrel Roll while singing "Macho Man". Now, to the Justice Hall! We must plan....

How is the title going to factor into the episode? Catch 22. Desmond has to decide between saving Charlie's life and trying to get them rescued?
kim, i was really hoping your mode of transportation would be a helicopter.
steph, is the catch 22 referring to the flashback maybe? prolly the island story but maybe even both.they should've named the episode Catch 23 so we know it's one better than the normal type./this one goes to 11
Kim, I am way psyched for tonight's ep. - I wish I could say why. I'll post at the spoiler blog - don't want to mess anyone up (who doesn't want to be messed up.
Kim--Electric Breath is never a good thing. And do you really need an Electric Tricycle when you can just hop on top of Dumbo and fly wherever you need to go?
Name: Black PersonSecret Identity: Jordan from the 206Special Power: Blazing EnigmaTransportation: Electric MotorcycleWeapon: Ice RifleCostume: Hardened UnderwearSidekick: SamwiseNemesis: Ming the RipperTragic Flaw: NarcolepsyFavorite Food: SardinesBlack Person? What the hell kind of super hero name is that? There's no need to fear! Here's a black guy on a motorcylce! And not just that, he's wearing hardened underwear and has a hobbit with him! Let's just hope he doesn't fall asleep while fighting that damn Ming the Ripper or we are all doomed!
Kim - I've got some Twinkies back at the village people justice hall I'll share - just join with us, we could work a tricycle into the grapevine morph somehow, and that graviton spear would be kickass to have on our side.
How can Kim and I have the same sidekick? Do we each get an ear?
Catch-22 is probably going to end up being some kind of reference to the futility of Desmond's efforts in trying to save Charlie, right?In a "Catch-22", one condition cannot exist without another. So presumably in this episode, we could see a general situation in which Desmond has to accomplish two things (like save Charlie but also save himself), both of which are dependent on the completion of the other. (Because Charlie can't be saved without Desmond being alive to save him.)
"It's Charlie or the Dharma Beer, brothah. I've seen it. And, let's face it, if we're stuck on this island, we need the beer!"
...like I said, I hate my super alter ego :(Appaullo we can share Dumbo.I honestly have no idea of what may happen in tonight's episode. I don't even have any predictions... I'm am giddy with anticipation though

casey, i like that you have an "actual sidekick." that's pretty badass.
Kim, you can have him Mon-Wed-Fri, I'll take Tues-Thur-Sat and we'll flip a coin for Sunday.Not to worry, you can always be a different superheroine tomorrow!I'm sad that nobody thought my earlier ice cream observation was humorous...
Chile Biscuit is my actual sidekick (she mostly just growls when an enemy approaches me, giving me a chance to whip out my Neutron Pistol), so you can have Caruthers.
preparing myself to be let down by tonight's episode. Desmond is probably my favorite character but, as i said after last week, i'm just not in the mood to deal with his precognition or Penny stuff.Those are huge story ideas and I have this suspicion that they're going to do them disjustice, trying to cram a lot into his flashback episode just because its his flashback and they don't have any other place to deal with them.I would prefer they spent this episode killing Charlie and letting everybody on the beach slap some sense into Jack.andrew.
I've found Jacob.Silver Dancerwith Caruthers who's really getting his ass around.
I also volunteer to slap Jack as Andrew suggests.Holli

I want some ritz crackers, that's what I want.A string snowsuit. Awesome.
Appaulo,I loved your "no more ice cream" scenario, mainly because I could totally hear Ben's voice saying those words.Also, don't worry if a comment doesn't get a direct response - people often just laugh to themselves without posting a comment (I know I do).
who are those guys in the background in that picture?
Colin,I'll trade you two twinkies for a sleeve of Ritz....(it's the superhero lunchroom)
one day, my side kick pollonius and i, i'm the red wolf, were sitting around eating my favorite food, strawberries. the phone rang. my nemesis, ming the crafty, was up to no good again. so i strapped on my leopard skin gauntlets, and grabbed my trusty flame bolt, and pollonius and i headed off in the quantum train to save the day yet again from the evil ming the crafty. when pollonius and i found ming the crafty, he was attempting to steal spoilers from the top secert lost hatch. i used my psychotronic force to knock him out and save the world from finding out too soon exactly when charlie is gonna die. the red wolf saves another episode of lost. yeah!~the red wolf
Thanks MB; it's good to know that Juliette doesn't need to be wined and dined; you just have to show up with a pint of Ben & Jerry's or Haagen-Dazs.
what? no mid-week jimmy? has the whole world gone mad? i'm sure there is a good reason, but i gotta admit, i'm a tad bit bummed. guess i'll just wait then.gotta say, i'm excited for tonight. should be fun.
For anyone who's interested, Doc Jensen @EW.com has some Desmond (and more) theorizingI think someone may have posted this link earlier - but I wasn't sure.
Midweek Jimmy late.
MB, It was accidentally posted when I tried to generate my superhero identity. There are spoilers for tonight. Be warned.Silver Dancer
can anyone explain the ending of 12 Monkeys to me? Is that future scientist lady working with ginger Morse?
Thanks Holli - my apologies if I was not clear - there ARE spoilers in that article.
Appaulo - RE: Juliet and ice cream - That wouldn't be a bad poll - is she a B&J or Haagen Dazs kind of woman.What's the difference you ask? I would posit that B&J eaters are more comfortable with 'alternative' or even radical ideologies, even if they do not always live them, and can even embrace B&J's "Hippie" image at times, whereas Haagen Dasz eaters are driven, more career oriented, and need the sweet release that only a pint of swiss almond fudge can bring. Juliet is a career woman who departed on a pretty fucking radical life/career change. So what does she choose from the freezer?I did not know I could blow that much smoke out of my ass - sorry folks
I don't kind what kind of ice cream she eats so long as it's MY ice cream.
paul, I, too, enjoyed the ice cream scenario.:)jordon, I'm afraid we got our flaws mixed up. I just slept for two hours and am still droggy. malcolm, it's his disciples. Or the followers of John the Baptist.
I don't CARE what kind of ice cream she eats so long as it's MY ice cream.
Steph, It's JordAn, not JordOn! HUGE difference! Seriously! lol. I'm just messing. A guy I work with always spells it with an O even though I've told him it's an A a couple times now. It's all good. Just whatever you do, don't call me Jordy. hahaha.
JordOn sounds like a personal problem.Holli
Or some kind of pharmaceutical drug.
How far in advance could you take JordOn? Would it be a problem if your pesky kids and grandkids showed up right after you took JordOn? That's my favorite of those Cialis commercials. Beat it kids. Grandma and Grandpa are horny.Holli
lol. Old people doing it. Yuck.
jordan, how long have I been doing that? Always? Sorry. Jordan. On of Us precedes Catch 22 tonight.Good thing since someone erased last week's from my DVR before I could put it on a disc.
You've been doing it for a long time Steph. And each time, I died a little inside. No, again I am only fooling. You can call me whatever you like. :)And I must say, that this board just isn't the same without Aimee around. Great having you back!BTW Aim, I'm sure by now you've finished "If Chins Could Kill". Curious as to what you thought.
Thanks for the reminder Steph -maybe I'l have time to watch part of it (to ramp up to C22)There are people watching it right now - damn!
JordOn! Apply directly to the Jord.JordOn! Apply directly to the Jord./headon commercials suck
Are those the ads that have actual customer comments saying I hate your commercials but I love your product? What balls.I always think of Ask A Ninja DVD, Apply Directly to Your Brain. Ask A Ninja DVD, Apply Directly to Your BrainJodan, I just saw that Will Arnett is in Let's Go To Prison. I may have to check it out. Is it watchable?
we must get to 108 before the show, damnit. get to it. superheroes, meet me in this thread. now!- captain cat of the bulletproof shorts
go blog go...
oooooh! new jimmy podcast. sweetness.
i am posting in three threads (including the Dharmalars). i am one wild and crazy guy.
aimee, i don't think that charlie will die tonight. what should we bet (as per your earlier comment)?
MB & Palmer singlehandedly trying to reach the kablammo. Hats off to you two fine beings.
I don't think it's quite yet the time for Charlie's death. I expect a little later in the season, possibly the finale.Name: Storm SisterSpecial Power: Psionic GazeTransportation: Quantum JetWeapon: Ultra BoltCostume: Fibersteel NightgownSidekick: DumboNemesis: Jack the MadTragic Flaw: Addicted to garlicFavorite Food: CakeIt seems as though a few people ended up with Dumbo as a sidekick.
I guess I'll do my part to keep this going.Steph, I haven't seen "Let's Go to Prison". And for as much as I am a fan of Arnett, I'm not sure if it's too good. It seems from the previews that he plays a bit of a straight man, and that's not him at all! He's at his best when he's wacky and wild. I'll probably check it out at some point though.
That Dumbo is one slutty sidekick.
just a few posts away! go, team, go!
someone kablamonate this MotherOther.
now, i can enjoy the upcoming LOST episode without having to worry about the kablamo.thank you, jordan. thordan!
