3x18 D.O.C. – PRE Episode Discussion


Who’s Your Daddy? - Post your theories and predictions for tonight’s episode here!

*Spoiler Free Zone!*

memphish said...

I vote Jae Lee is the daddy, but that Sun will lie to protect Jin.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

Holli, no Korean Mafia Hitman name generator?

memphish said...

I've been looking for a good generator Palmer, but have not succeeded as of yet. I did find a "Gangsta Name" one and in a pinch we could go with Random Chuck Norris facts.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

Yeah, I haven't found anything either.

What's Jin's last name? http://www.babynamegenie.com/

aimee in little rock said...

Jin and Sun will have a baby boy. According to the baby name genie, it will be named Kelvin Maverick Kwon. LOL.

My son's (who will never be born) will be named Maximus Carter.

aimee in little rock said...

Why can I not say the name Maverick without thinking of Tom Cruise? Ick.

aimee in little rock said...

And I can't say Maximus without thinking of Russell Crowe.

trevor mcfur said...

Holli, I'm always up for random Chuck Norris facts. My personal fave: Chuck Norris' tears can cure cancer. Unfortunately, Chuck Norris never cries.

PalmerEldritch said...

Who would you think of if the kid was named Mavirus? Or Maxemick?

I like that Jin names his kid Kelvin after Desmond's old friend.

PalmerEldritch said...

Sawyer's baby with Kate: Elvis Dennis Ford?

memphish said...

Here's the Chuck Norris link.

My fact: Chuck Norris can slam revolving doors.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

"Chuck Norris once had an erection while lying face down. He struck oil."

memphish said...

Just to cover all my bases, here's prediction #2 for Sun and her baby:

The baby is Jin's conceived on-Island. This gives Juliet a new guinea pig. Unfortunately, her mission from Ben is to kill Sun since Sun killed Colleen. Juliet's Catch-22, do I complete my mission or do my research on Sun to complete my larger task of fixing the on-Island birthing problem?

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

Huh. That's good. Let's get you on the writing staff.

memphish said...

Hiring me certainly would be no crazier than how the Lost Writer's Room really works. This is an old video, but a goodie.

Holli

trevor mcfur said...

"Chuck Norris was once on Celebrity Wheel of Fortune and was the first to spin. The next 29 minutes of the show consisted of everyone standing around awkwardly, waiting for the wheel to stop."

stephsmith said...

Maverick makes me think of Mel Gibson.
I still say the daddy is none of the above.
In case you haven't heard about my brilliant 8 year-old, here's the latest anecdote.
"First Charlie followed Locke through the jungle. Then he followed Eko. Now he's following Desmond.
Charlie's not a leader; he's a follower."- Wow, brilliant observation. I don't know what relevance it has to anything but it sounds good to me.

aimee in little rock said...

Does following Jack & Kate in the pilot episode count too? Or following Sayid in the season 1 finale count?

memphish said...

Come on Steph. Who is it then? Please not Michael! The guy she slept with after Jae died but before she ran away?

I love Trevor's Chuck fact.

Holli

aimee in little rock said...

He tried to "lead" because he wanted to find the bay-bee, but Sayid was the only one who knew what he was doing. So Charlie was still stuck being the follower.

PalmerEldritch said...

And before the Island, Charlie was following his brother around.

Then he followed his heroin addiction. Oops!

memphish said...

Charlie followed his heroin friend around in that episode where he conned Lucy as well. It was friend's idea, not Charlie's.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

I hope the parachutist is a huge fan of DriveShaft.

Any predictions for the Jin/Sun flashback?

trevor mcfur said...

I think that Jin is gonna be the daddy. In terms of the mythology of the show, having Sun pregnant on the island and potentially being a victim of the sickness )or whatever you want to call it that kills the pregant women) would be a more convenient plot device for the writers, imo.

I also like this one, swiped from last week's Lostcast:
Chuck Norris doesn't do pushups. Chuck Norris pushes the Earth down.

trevor mcfur said...

What about this? It' the North Korean Insult Generator?

http://www.nk-news.net/extras/insult_generator.php

PalmerEldritch said...

ANA LUCIA HAS TEH SICKNESS!

aimee in little rock said...

I liked this one: The pattern on the shark is not a DHARMA symbol, but an imprint of Chuck's boot.

Runner-up: The DHARMA acronym stands for Chuck's motto, "Do Harm And Repeatedly Murder Assholes"

:)

PalmerEldritch said...

aimee, i've got some literature for you to read per last week's episode.

Flash v. Superman

aimee in little rock said...

Gee, thanks.

PalmerEldritch said...

Superman vs. Flash

Technically, it wasn't mentioned by name so you're off the hook.

So, are we thinking Sun's a lying bitch today or not?

casey_donahue said...

thank god lost is tonight, hopefully it will make up for my not so great day I had yesterday

t-dot kim said...

I really like the idea that Sun got pregnant on the island, and now Juliet is stuck in her own Catch 22. Great theory.

The island doesn't need another skank.

trevor mcfur said...

Hey, we already know that Sun is a lyin' cheatin' skanky ho, the only question is whether or not she got knocked up because of it.

PalmerEldritch said...

Kim, this is SkankIsland. He-skanks and She-skanks all over that place.

Hope we get some skank dancing soon.

As for whether or not Sun is more or less skanky if she's preggers with Jae Lee's baby, I'd have to say that her level of skankiness should not be dependent on her fertility on the day of her banging Jae. Girl's a skank no matter what. But Ralph's right, if it's Jae Lee's baby then it really sucks for Jin.

I hope that the baby was conceived on Island and that it turns out to be a chest burster. Then Jin can pick up Claire after Charlie's dead. :)

elias said...

My Norris fact:

"Chuck Norris is not hung like a horse... horses are hung like Chuck Norris"

I think the father is either Michael (someone else's great theory) or Sawyer.

Sawyer's secret island mission is to sleep with a woman of every race. Rose is next :)

Benjamin said...

Well, whoever the father is, Sun's still a slut. Whether or not she conceived while f'ing a dude that's not her husband isn't enough to save her in my book.

You can online read the first Superman/Flash race here.

aimee in little rock said...

Why would they be making such a big deal about this episode being about the identity of Sun's baby daddy if unless it was someone other than Jin? That's what I'd like to know.

aimee in little rock said...

Isn't that the whole point?

aimee in little rock said...

I'm in a bad mood and I'm fucking starving. Where should I go for lunch?

stephsmith said...

Taco Bell. No, nevermind. You want to be able to watch Lost tonight. Make that Chik-fila.
I want to know, will the flashback show Sun in a good light? Or will it give us more reason not to like her?

trevor mcfur said...

Trying to figure out what's going to happen tonight based upon Cusalof's motivations is a losing proposition ... cuz' they're just fucking with us.

"Chuck Norris can speak Braille".

PalmerEldritch said...

aimee, it's Lostnesday so screw any concerns about budget or diet. just get some tasty food. bbq? mexican?

Benjamin said...

That's a really good point, Aimee. Unless it's misdirection, there's no reason to make a big deal about it. Oooh, unless by revealing that the paternity is in question it is revealed to Jin that Slun cheated.

I don't know enough about your local cuisine to adequately help you with your food quest. Good luck.

PalmerEldritch said...

the power of google

aimee's possible lunch locations. quizno's is good.

aimee in little rock said...

I'm going to hop in my quantum plane so I can go to the Stinking Rose. Even my superhero identity said I was addicted to garlic. Or I'll just end up driving around the corner to Burger King. Whatever.

memphish said...

Steph, I'd bet the flashback will show both Sun and Jin in a bad light. Most of the flashbacks this season have been showing us that our beloved LOSTies don't really deserve our love.

Jack's a stalker that drove his dad off the wagon and bangs Bai Ling. Kate blew up daddy for herself and doesn't do taco night. Sawyer even cons cons. Sun is a lying slut. Locke is a putz who gets his drug buddies arrested. Eko is an unrepentant drug lord. Desmond leaves the women he claims to love. Claire can't drive. Sayid tortured women. Pikki are scheming jewel thieves. Only Hurley and Juliet have had clean back stories this season.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

get some Korean food, aimee. in honor of Jin (but not Sun cuz the girl's a slut).

never been to a korean restaurant but the korean families in elementary school could make some sweet food.

memphish said...

I've eaten at the Stinking Rose. Swing your plane by Memphis on your way to the Bay.

Holli

memphish said...

Korean BBQs are fun if you like cooking the food you're paying for at a restaurant.

Holli

aimee in little rock said...

You have a Stinking Rose in Memphis? I'm so eating there on the 12th!

memphish said...

No. I've been to the one in San Francisco. We've just got tons of pork bbq.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

mmmm... pork bbq...

*drool*

Benjamin said...

I really enjoyed the stinking rose. I also enjoyed the little stir fry scallops yaki soba combination I threw together last night. It was pretty off-the-cuff, but delicious. But I can't have my leftovers until dinner time. : (

memphish said...

So there are 6 hours of LOST left for 2007, what's the one question you hope they will answer before then?

Mine - WTF did Ben mean when he told Micheal the Others are the good guys.

Holli

MB said...

"The most honorable way of dying is taking a bullet for Chuck Norris. This amuses Chuck Norris because he is bulletproof."

I just don't have the same Slun (love that name though) hate that so many seem to - however, I think it is fairly clear that she is in trouble one way or the other.

Aimee - you got any Teriyaki/Bento places around Little Rock? They seem to be a go-to around here.

PalmerEldritch said...

holli, i want to know what's up with the four toed statue.

Benjamin said...

Bento! I will partake in a teriyaki/tempura/sushi bento at my earliest convenience. It's like a combo meal with a combo meal on the side, and you can convince yourself it's all healthful food.

aimee in little rock said...

I ate sushi once, just to prove that I could do it without hurling. I almost failed that mission. I don't know what Bento is though. We have some Japanese steakhouses & hibachi joints around here though.

I went with a cheeseburger & dulce de leche cheesecake today. Mmm...cheese...

Benjamin said...

I'm so lactose intolerant that Aimee's meal from halfway across the country is hurting me.

aimee in little rock said...

Not as much as I'm sure it's going to hurt me later. Guiltless binging is awesome.

Anonymous said...

- i predict Sun will continue to get skinnier despite being pregnant.

- i predict Hurley will say something cute and Sun will chuckle and then break down in tears.

- i predict that Jin figures out he's not the dad but takes it in stride because he's new cool-Jin.

- i predict that the Juliet-Jack-Kate-Sawyer melodrama rears its ugly head again with no resolution. Juliet is either the new Mrs. Shepherd or she's not going to make it through the season.

i'm craving pizza, which quickly turns into craving pierogi pizza, which is sooo good but sooo bad for me.

andrew.

MB said...

Aimee - Oh, now you got me thinking about cheese (dreamy Homer Simpson voice) ...mmmmm...cheezy goodness....
Well, perhaps that soup will have to stay in the cupboard for another day...

Palmer - I finally responded to your question over at the spoiler blog or splog as someone (was it Colin) dubbed it. I cracked up because I actually found
benrygalesdialogueeverysyllable.com
I continue to be amazed by the fanbase for this show (and the commitment to sharing information)

aimee in little rock said...

Andrew's talking about pizza now...mmm...more cheese...

MB said...

(sigh) now pizza. (tapping finger to lips) What to do....what to do - lunch comes soon.

For those interested - I just posted a pretty big spoiler for D.O.C. tonight (at least - I hadn't heard it until now).

aimee in little rock said...

->puts fingers in her ears<- La La La La La La!

PalmerEldritch said...

aimee, dulce de leche or whatnot can only mean.... BK?

i really need to get me some chinese food. or indian food. or some pad thai.

ben, do you use Lactaid at all? does it help out? my roommate in college used that and managed to reduce his lactose intolerance to absolutely horrendous gas. :\

MB said...

OH - Pad Thai. Dammit, too many choices!

stephsmith said...

It's taco night here at the Smith residence.

I predict Jin will be left out of the loop.
Sun will do something devious.
Kate will continue to settle for James.
Because we're so anxious to hear what the parachutist has to say, we won't see her this episode.
We may find out the DOC but ultimately we will be even more confused about Sun and the whole pregnancy issue.

I have spoiler-regret. I wish I could get the Hatian to erase my memory.

stephsmith said...

69!

PalmerEldritch said...

congrats on the last post and the one before that is the greatest heroes reference that i've heard in some time.


oh... mb, pad thai it up!

t-dot kim said...

Dang!1 Just missed the 69th... I'm at work, that equals more blogging. lol

What's the Stinking Rose? (Assuming Italian cuisine??) I enjoy sushi, I had it for lunch yesterday. Today I was running late for work, so I stopped by Tim Hortons for a sandwich.

MB said...

Steph - if you need to release it, the spoiler blog is always there for you. Purge it out of your brain - maybe that will help.

Or are you talking about what I just posted there?

aimee in little rock said...

BK indeed, Palmer. At least I won't need to eat dinner now.

You could always try taking Beano. You can't spell Beano without B-E-N.

MB said...

The Stinking Rose (if i'm remembering right) is a vampires horrible nightmare and garlic eaters heaven. It's an Italian restaurant (I think - someone correct me) in San Francisco. Quite yummy. I didn't realize it was in L.A. too.

PalmerEldritch said...

kim! i'm loving the Tim Horton's visit. now, you just need to go to Tim Horton's while wearing a tuque.

i'd go to a fast food restaurant wearing a "God Bless America" t-shirt and a NASCAR hat to fulfill my American Stereotype quotient but i've already eaten.

also i don't have any shirts like that and don't watch NASCAR... but i do dig NFL Football.

t-dot kim said...

I know, I probably the only person I know who doesn't go to Tim Horton's for the coffee... how very un-Canadian of me.

Sadly, I also don't own a touque. But I swear I am Canadian...or so I've been told.

I do own a CFL T-shirt (Canadian Football League), it has maple leaf on it and says "Our Balls Are Bigger", I guess that makes up for it.

stephsmith said...

palmer, I'm usually not that clever. I'm pretty sure I stole the remark. Bad memory.
mb, that's the one!
Kimberley, I must google touque.

MB said...

Kim,
I wanted to say - loved the podcast music, but now Afternoon Delight has been playing in my head for about 24 hours and counting.
You know, there are songs that attack your brain like like a virus and do not stop until it's prey is decimated. Starland Vocal Band is eating away at my mind and I don't think they're going to stop until I'm braindead. I can't concentrate!

PalmerEldritch said...

mb, i've had afternoon delight stuck in my head ever since i saw Anchorman in theaters...

uh... the song. not a desire to catch some afternoon delight with Ron Burgundy. although, he does have a pretty sweet mustache.

MB said...

I hear you Palmer - Although the music video they did for their version of the song is pretty funny. Still haven't seen Blades - where does the time go...

PalmerEldritch said...

Kim, what's your CFL team of choice? fan of Doug Flutie?

apPaullo said...

I predict the Larry Birkhead is the father if Sun's baby!

Anonymous said...

"Afternoon Delight" is now forever linked to Arrested Development in my head.

luckily i was too wrapped up in the Kim & Aimee banter because Phil Collins sends me into a berserker rage.

andrew.

PalmerEldritch said...

appaulo wins the thread!

memphish said...

Aimee, I just finished reading Carrie. Yes, I am not as prolific a LOST reader as Aimee, but I doubt anyone is. Any thoughts as to why it might be Juliet's favorite book? I wonder if she's got Sue Snell survivor guilt of some sort.

Holli

1. The sky turned purple because Ted Sprague EMPed that shit.

2. Future Hiro killed Jack & Juliet and dumped their bodies in the past.

Damn you blogspotters! Damn you all! It's just about 1 pm here and I have still yet to take my lunch break. Speed reading through this thread has only made me 100 times hungrier! Whoever was talking about sushi, I had some awesome stuff the other day at this fancy place downtown. So good. Mmmmm.

Jimmy said...

Coming in late today :) Comments regarding other posts...

Yes..."Afternoon Delight" was somewhat stuck in my head too!

I eat sushi about 1 or 2 times a week. So fucking healthy, so clean...perfect. My absolute favorite food. Oysters on the shell...I usually knock back a dozen, but I did 29 once.

So if Sun came up and said to you "I am very attracted to you...I need to get shagged by you...I am in a loveless marriage and feel trapped by a control freak". I guess all you guys would say "Oh no...you are married. Burn in hell Skank Bitch? You filthy tart etc".

Would ya????

PalmerEldritch said...

yes. now if Shannon said the same thing... ;)

Nick said...

To change my statement from before, i think future hiro is more likely to freeze time and tell Jack Juliet's plan, sending Jack into a berzerker rage, killing juliet. THEN future hiro came back and dumped their bodies in the past.

Jordan from the 206 said...

For as funny as Will Ferrell & co. singing Afternoon Delight was in Anchorman, it was nowhere near as wrong as it was in Arrested Development when Michael Bluth sang it with his neice, Maybee.

Speaking of podcast soundtrack songs getting stuck in your head. Thanks Dharmafarts for getting that Dear Sister/OC song stuck in my head for the past 3 days. And it's only that one stupid part.

apPaullo said...

I already have the song for next week's lead-in for Aimee and Kim's show:

the 1969 Zombies hit "Time of the Season," which contains the line "What's your name, who's your daddy?"

t-dot kim said...

lol... Appaullo does win the thread.

Palmer, I stick to my T-dot related teams. I love my city. Argos, Jays (won last night), Raptors (also won last night) Leafs (let's not get into it).

I don't know why I stick up for the girls (Juliet, ok, she's an exception) on LOST. I feel like no one understands Kate or Sun, I like them. Female intuition, I guess. I really hope the baby is Jin's. I don't know how it would be physically possible considering his jizz situation, but I'd like to think she's not ho-bag.

Stephanie - a touque is basically a ugly knitted wool cap. Most of them have an pomp-pomp on the top. Very un-attractive. (My dad has an Argos touque).

t-dot kim said...

Appaullo, I have already picked the perfect opening song for next week's podcast, but I will keep your suggestion in mind for the "mixed tape".

I too can't stop singing Afternoon Delight, probably because it's not my ringtone in my phone :(

t-dot kim said...

oops, not = now

PalmerEldritch said...

flutie played for the argos and won the championship, right? so, your team is alright with me.

oh, and as Ben was saying, Sun still cheated on Jin whether it's Jae's baby or not.

locke needs a toque to keep his poor bald head warm. then he wouldn't always be so cranky!

PalmerEldritch said...

yeah, i almost had Rump Shaker as my ring tone. then the lovely girlfriend pointed out that at some point someone would actually call me and my cell phone would be playing Rump Shaker in public... :\

Jordan from the 206 said...

Hey Kim. I was listeing to TLI yesterday and heard you talking about the traffic reports. I thought of an easy way for you to slip in kablammo or razzle dazzle. Alls you got to do is if there is a bad traffic jam or accident say, "there was one razzle dazzle of jam on the 45" or "looks like a truck went kablammo at the intersection of so and so". And with your savvy, you could pull it off rather smoothly. ;)

Benjamin said...

Even I own a touque, and my position on Canadians is well-known. Of course, I grew up thinking that the fifth day of Christmas was "Five Golden Touques."

Pad Thai is delicious, Lact-aid doesn't save me, Afternoon Delight is awesome, Arrested Development is amazing, and I may not actually have the willpower to kick Sun out of bed, but I still think cheating is a heinous sin.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Palmer, that could lead to a very intersting blogspot game. What's your current ring tone? Mine right now is the theme to Curb Your Enthusiasm.

t-dot kim said...

lol...I'll see what I can do Jordan. Ok, I'm off, looking forward to some good reading when I get back

apPaullo said...

Glad I finally won something.

Hi Kim, I can't wait to hear your song choice. I knew that I loved your podcast when you opened with BBD's 'Poison' after Expose and yelled 'Razzle Dazzle bitches'! I think I spit up some coffee and peed a little when I heard that.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Phad Thai is indeed delicious. One of my favs. But I had some total ass Phad Thai the other day. I got take out from this place I had never been to before. It was so bad, I wanted to call up the place and ask to speak to the chef, just so I could tell him how bad it was.

MB said...

Jimmy - love your point re: Sun. Yunjin Kim is indeed not ugly.

It always seems comes down to boobs with guys doesn't it - although I have to say, for me it's her eyes.

PalmerEldritch said...

Thai food is not for "outsiders."

You walk among them but you are not one of them.

/bai ling is nasty

Jordan from the 206 said...

Here's the assist. Somebody slam it home.

Anonymous said...

Sun is a little bit of a two-face. Some moments she's stunning and other moments she's kind of a sourpus.
Also the fact that she's always so overly sweet even when she's lying or plotting, makes her ugly on the inside.

Cindy Cindy Cindy Cindy

Anonymous said...

Kablamo for Cindy.


andrew.

MB said...

Jordan - I know what you mean. Good pad Thai is ambrosia, bad pad thai is something spawned from the underworld. And it's SO fucking dissappointing when you get a bad one, because you were totally psyched to be getting some pad thai, and then.....damn, it tastes like ass. Few things suck more than that.

MB said...

Andrew is the Kablammonater for Lostesday

Jimmy said...

MB,

Yes...it certainly seems to be boobs on this blog at least! That said, I'm an ass man :)

PalmerEldritch said...

haven't heard from Aimee in a while. hope that's not lunch related. :\

Jimmy said...

I hear that they have 4 hour lunches in Arkansas...

Jordan from the 206 said...

Seriously. I don't know what ass tastes like. But if I were to guess, it would be very close to bad phad thai. The shit I had the other day was bunch of slimey noodles drenched in runny orange sauce. It was disgusting. I don't wish it on my worst enemy.

Jordan from the 206 said...

It's funny how this place works with the differing regions of people. Everybody in on differing scedules with the time difference. I always seem to hit the place right after the big back and forths happen with Aimee, Holli, and Steph, the Southeastern trio. But always seem to be around when my PNW bro's mb & Jimmy are here.

PalmerEldritch said...

now, jimmy, don't go assuming we're all breast men (terry o'quinn reference unintentional). it's just that boobs is a funny word. and a funnier word to make a robot say if you're managing a paper sales company in Pennsylvania.

jimmy, does anyone on the island actually have an ass? :(

Benjamin said...

We can use this once we know the D.O.C.

PalmerEldritch said...

jordan, simply wake up three hours earlier and start posting.

/man, that's a CRAPPY idea

Jordan from the 206 said...

Has anybody actually seen Breast Men? If not, I think it might be calling somebody here's netflix queue.

PalmerEldritch said...

ben, then we can write angry letters to cuselof in seasons 8 and 9.

"misters lindelof and cuse, it is clearly two weeks past Sun's due date as per my calculations taking into account her last menstrual cycle and the date of conception..." /nerd voice

PalmerEldritch said...

ben and rolph should record a commentary track for Breast Men and we should all rent the movie and listen.

apPaullo said...

Ben, remember that island time is slower than real time, so this is going to be the world's first 14 month pregnancy, and will be concluded in the the post-LOST comedy spinoff 'Still Lost' in which the surviving characters will open a theme restaurant in LA.

Jordan from the 206 said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Jordan from the 206 said...

I would be up for a B&R Breast Men commentary! Also a Weng Weng, Agent 00 one would be good.

BTW Palmer, where abouts are you stationed? You also seem to have a similar blog schedule.

Jimmy said...

Jordan...

where did your Pad Thai taste like ass? I am interested if it is somewhere I know (given your a Ballard lad). Actually is that right? Ballard?

Palmer...

Good question about the lack of Island Ass.

Evangeline has a little one and no hips at all...that's a turn off for me. I actually think Sun maybe has the best one....all that said, the best ass on the Island is now dead and buried, surrounded by Diamonds!!! Not Paulo, btw...

aimee in little rock said...

I'm leaning back in my chair, sticking out my cheeseburger belly like an expectant mother. I was waiting for the guy from IT to leave so I could log back onto the blogspot.

It sounds like most people are picking sides based on either their own sexual politics, personal beliefs, or whichever character they personally like more. To me, it doesn't really matter. She's an adult, and regardless of who the baby-daddy is (which will probably end up being Jin making it an awfully anticlimactic moment for us all) I'm sure the episode and storyline will still find room for drama.

aimee in little rock said...

So then, do you mean Eko? Cause, like, he's buried too.

Colin said...

I don't think Eko's surrounded by diamonds.

Unless by diamonds, Jimmy means Jesus stick.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Jimmy, it was Jai Thai in Belltown on 1st Ave. Maybe it was just a bad batch, but it was horrible.

Jordan from the 206 said...

And yes, I am in Ballard. Speaking of which, have you ever gone to Thaiku on Ballard Ave? It's pretty good and they have a really cool bar where they have these cocktails with some yohimbe root that you are only allowed to order one per person.

Jimmy said...

Agreed Aimee...

Sawyer shoots an innocent man,
Nikki and Paulo are murderers,
Eko a drug baron killer,

Sun has an affair...all sounds pretty trivial to me. I just hope the episode is good...regardless of who does what. I think that when you consider that no one really had much to say about Catch 22, that it was just filler. We don't want more filler at this stage of the season!!!

Jimmy said...

Yes...that is right. My favorite ass in lost is Mr Eko's. I cannot believe that I actually had to spell it out.

MB said...

YES on the Ben and Ralph commentary idea - BTW, nice to have you here today mr. Ben. Actually there are a butload of movies you guys ought to do commentaries for - I'd listen.

Not a bad way to spend the LOOOOOOONNNGGGG f-ing hiatus that we have to look forward to. You guys could do commentaries for movies that relate to and/or have been referenced in Lost. I would love that (or frankly just whatever movies you felt like) - you guys would be good

Jordan from the 206 said...

I really hope tonight's ep isn't filler or semi-filler even. I don't know why exactly, but I always find Jin & Sun's flashback stories to be quite boring. Hope that isn't the case this time.

stephsmith said...

I have different ring tones dedicated to different people.
my hubby- Cletus the Slack-jawed Yokel
my bff- War Eagle
my mom- Yeah Alabama
my house- The Simpsons theme
All others- Star Wars theme

Congrats Andrew and Paul.
I hate fish therefore I'm sure I'd hate sushi.

apPaullo said...

This episode should have been called 'My Two Dads'.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Thanks Aimee. You settled my question as to what to have for my very late lunch. Bacon cheeseburger at the bar next door it is. :)

Jimmy said...

Agreed Jordan about the bore factor. Truth is, I find Jin and Sun to be the dullest of the bunch. DDK is fucking awesome when he's kickign it with the guys etc...Sun drags it down a bit. My opinion.

Yes...I have been to both the places you mention. I'm aware of the 1 per person cocktail. Was at Thaiku about 6 months back, never tried it though...

Jordan from the 206 said...

Sun & Jin's flashbacks are just so ugh to me. "Oh no. They are having marital issues!" What's the big mystery that we're waiting to find out with them? Sun's baby? That's it really. All the other characters have much more intrigue to their back stories.

I'm LMAO after reading the last 30 posts and trying to keep a straight-face while mini-me asks me what's so funny.

Guess what I got in mail today? That's right, Bruce Campbell has made his way from Arkansas across the river to Tennessee. Just in time as I finished a book today.

BTW, I had sushi for lunch and I'm having almond-crusted tilapia for dinner. Just thought I should chime in.

Appaullo is on a roll today.

Thanks Holli. Glad to know I'm amusing somebody besides myself!

MB said...

Wow Holli - can I come over for dinner?

Colin said...

Almond crusted talapia sounds delicious. Would you like to send me some in the mail, Holli?

my daughter acctually loves she-ra: the princess of power. you know, he-man and she-ra. anyway, she's got this she-ra movie, "the secret of the sword," and it's kinda playing in the background as i'm makin diner. i kid you not, i heard this witch character say "razzle dazzle" as she cast a spell. are you kidding me, a lost and she-ra: the princess of power connection. insane.

as far as the whole who da baby daddy thing goes, i'm pretty sure it's jin. just cause i think it's pretty obvious that sun is going to be the first woman to conceive on the island, and live through the birth. of course just because it's obvious doesn't make it true on this show, but i really think that is the next logical step as far as fleshing out the whole pregnacy plot. i guess i'll find out i'm wrong in three hours and fifteen minutes. i'm always wrong.

Knowing how sneaking those Lost writers can be, here's a few possible alternate meanings for tonight's episode that I found using acronymfinder.com:

Defamation of Character
Dissolved Organic Carbon
Deoxycorticosterone
Disciples of Christ
Dead on Contact
Dominion of Canada
Dartmouth Outing Club
Decommissioning Operations Contractor
Descend on Course
Discipline Operations Center
Daughters of the Confederacy
Denominazione di Origine Controllata (Italian: Checked Origin Name)

apPaullo said...

Or, to hopefully put this silliness to bed:

Dicks On Chicks

B. Linus said...

dead on contact. thats a good one. also dominoin of canada is cool. but i think defamation of character could possibly be most relevant.

elias said...

ouch. I hope it's not that appaullo :)

B. Linus said...

that's kinda appalling appaulo. let's hope it's not that.

apPaullo said...

No, it's not me (I swear), but I couldn't resist. Lowest Common Denominator is always funny.

I can give Almond-crusted Tilapia two thumbs up.

My 1st grader has to do a poster on Australia and I keep trying to convince him to do it on LOST since Flight 815 originated there, Claire's from there, Rose and Bernard went to Ayres' Rock, Christian Shephard died there. All the stuff 1st graders need to know. He's not buying it.

Uh oh, ladies. Looks like Officer TacoNight is out of a(nother) job. Maybe that means he'll have more LOST appearances?

Demonic Oligarchy Children?
Deep Ocean Creature?

Sun/Jin episodes are usually mildly boring in the flashback department but Jin's the man and maybe they'll amp up the Island story to make up for a boring flashback story?

Jordan, I'm way the heck out on the Very East Coast. It's just that the closer I get to 5pm Eastern time, the more I need to post on the blogspot to maintain my sanity at work.

And...

JACOB IS THE FATHER.

p.s. jimmy, we should write Cuselof and demand some Fantasti-Asses on the show. at the least, it'd be a great excuse for "Rump Shaker."

Nathan Fillion is the Andy Richter of tv dramas. Great actor who is death to any show he headlines.

While I wasn't thrilled by Drive, and I really couldn't see how they would be able to draw out that story line, it sure was quick to get the axe. I thought it had "some" promise. Eh, oh well.

But I knew it had zero chance of succeeding. If any of you have watched the show and heard the title song, you know that no tv show created could make it with such a horrible intro song. That was laughably bad.

I was afraid this would happen. Not even the huge fanbase Firefly built over the past couple of years could overcome the lack of network confidence in the show. I'm never watching Fox again. That is, after I find out who gets voted off of AI tonight.
I heard a rumor that Katee Sackhoff isn't just guesting on The Bionic Woman. She's actually the star!
