Namaste,

t-dot kim said...

...that should have read, "Aimee's sign off from last week at the very end."

Chris JC said...

Hannah Montana Floyd AND NIN? I'm, like, so totally there.

JonFromNKY said...

Best TLI intro ever.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Anyone have any awesome dreams about the superburger?

Jordan from the 206 said...

Miley Cyrus, fine. But if I ever see you use a Jonas Brothers song (or should I say Joe Bros), I will stop listening altogether.

JonFromNKY said...

NIN + Miley Cyrus = Total Protonic Reversal

Herlihy said...

I can tolerate Miley Cyrus but not Hannah Montana.

Also. WHOO!

Jordan from the 206 said...

I admit that I find the whole TWSS thing a bit overdone at this point. But HOW ON EARTH did you miss it when Aimee says, "I can't swallow that much"?!!! That was possibly the king of all TWSS's.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Also goes for the follow up line, "Oh, this is nasty".

Rrb said...

Mystery solved. Widmore doesn't think Desmond can make 75 dollars, in a Month. (calculations from 125 dollars for about 2 shots of mcCuthcins). Rude Prick.

Rrb said...

O ya and I think Jack Bender should have directed this episode! The whole "Sugar Cube Scene" could have been wayyy cooler from Syiad's point of view:( I'm 'pretty sure Bender has done all the trippie episodes thus far I'll have to go back and cheack?

memphish said...

Listening to TLI and cleaning out my pantry. Big fun.

Kim good point that Sayid really only takes orders rather than acting on his own.

PalmerEldritch said...

i want to see Hurley on Iron Chef America.

Jordan from the 206 said...

I want to kill Kyle for singing that annoying ass song. It's already stuck in my head. Jack ass.

Tha Kid said...

Waiting on Jimmy.

Kim also used Hannah Montana another time but wrote that it was Ashlee Simpson. (Why am I bringing this up?)

By the way, I'm watching MI-5 Season 1, Episode 1 as I type. It's weird how everyone is British. America is cool 'cause there are British people and then regular people. Mot everyone sounds the same. (Note: I was born in Eastbourne and have a lot of fam across the UK.) I really wanted to go to Scotland last time, but no one was down to go. Why do Brits not like Scottish people?

To be fair, I mainly wanted to go cause of Desmond.

People who spoil stuff should be shot.

MI-5 is pretty weird. Their technology looks pretty tame compared to 24 or Alias. It looks like I could run this operation in my room.

The Sayid torture season was . . . does this girl . . . this girl is American. Normal.

What was I saying? Oh yeah, Sayid. The scene is probably in the top 5 scenes ever in Lost. It's for sure Naveen Andrews' best performance. I still have his psychotic laugh in my head. He should probably think about playing the Joker in the Broadway production of the Dark Knight.

Last thing, I was reading Variety and thought it was interesting. YOu can read the article at

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118001806.html?categoryid=2522&cs=1

Sorry, I don't know how to insert links.

t-dot kim said...

Jordan, I believe I called a TWSS...but had audio problems and it ended up on the cutting room floor.

Tha Kid said...

Wow! Incoherent.

I was reading Variety and saw an article on Lost which was interesting. Its NOT spoilerish. Once again the link is

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118001806.html?categoryid=2522&cs=1

Chris JC said...

It's weird that there are British people in a British TV show? That is if, as I suspect, MI-5 is the international name for "Spooks".

Jordan from the 206 said...

"Kim also used Hannah Montana another time but wrote that it was Ashlee Simpson. (Why am I bringing this up?)"

Better yet, why do you know this?

Chris JC said...

Also, Scottish people ARE Brits.

There is probably natural animosity because of us being geographical neighbours (like Canada and the US), but also England has had centuries of being a little wanker and trying to rule everything, starting with whatever's closest.

You ask nearly any Scot and they will run down a bunch of historical battles against the English, when it happened and who the victor was. Ask a random English person and they will probably not even be aware that such wars were ever fought.

It probably a fault of the education system, or just a country-wide obsession with trying not to remember what bastards we are.

Well, were.

memphish said...

Empire Shmempire.

Holli

Jordan from the 206 said...

It is Chris. And from what I've heard, MI-5 is edited a bit differently. Forget who it was, but I remember a tv critic (Tim Goodman, I think) who suggested to watch the original Spooks version.

t-dot kim said...

Yes, it is Chris. My sister watches that show it's MI-5 over here.

Chris JC said...

If it's edited BY the BBC for the US market then you probably SHOULD watch the original one because it's probably edited by British folks to be more in line with what they think Americans will want to see which probably can't help but be ham-fisted and embarrassing.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Yeah, I'm guessing they might feel the need to dumb it down. Goes along with that whole snooty Brit stereotype. ;)

Herlihy said...

MI-5? That is such a lame and uncool name. Spooks is much better.

/snooty brit.
//doesn't even watch the show.

Chris JC said...

Just like American shows feel they need to when putting a red phone box and double decker bus in any scene set in London.

Britain is only London

And, let's be fair, UK shows generally show American characters as gung-ho whooping jocks.

Chris JC said...

Spooks is an old racist term in the US though, no?

Probably the same reason Cracker got renamed for the remake.

andrew. said...

- "spook" is odd in that it was a slur against black people and slang for CIA officers, although not really used for either any more. This coincidence was cleverly used for the title of my favorite blaxploitation movie "The Spook Who Sat By The Door"

- good episode ladies. Did that drinking contest happen before or after the insightful discussion of Lost?

- i'm really curious about that "Haunting In Connecticut" movie. It looks like it could either be a bunch of pretty people being angsty or it could be rightfully Lovecraftian. Anybody seen it?

- Jordan, i'm going to watch "Irreversable" today.

andrew. said...

i should add that "The Spook Who Sat By The Door" was a novel first, but i've only seen the movie.

Stephanie said...

Andrew., for the first time? Good luck with that.

memphish said...

Careful. There's apparently a nekkid Bai Ling photo making the rounds of the interwebs. The interwebs be scary.

Holli

Herlihy said...

I can't believe I searched for this

Chris JC said...

It's cause of your obsession with "famous boobies".

By the way - that picture crippled my machine, after about two minutes only 10% of it had loaded and al my resources got sucked down to nothing.

Make of that what you will, but I think Bai Ling is drawing power from our computers via the internet.

Herlihy said...

Say what you will... Her nipples are quite distinctive.

Also. My computer is like 3/4 years old and it loaded up in flash... and i'm running loads of applications too. Oh well.

memphish said...

I warned you people.

Holli

PalmerEldritch said...

she's like... the anti-bacon!

Jordan from the 206 said...

HAHAHAHAHA

I really hope nobody here watches that show. Wow. lol.

andrew. said...

- wow. either that dog was really late on his cue or all of those characters are complete assholes who couldn't be bothered to make more than a half-hearted feign at helping. and that dude at the end totally looks like Ricky, Mr. Schroder if you're nasty.

- i feel the need to cleanse this blogspot after some of the recent failures at cheesecake: we're here to watch

- Breaking Bad was seriously uncomfortable this week. I turned down the volume a couple of times because i couldn't bear some of the tension. Aaron Paul was almost as good as Bryan Cranston.

PalmerEldritch said...

reminds me of something

Jordan from the 206 said...

Agreed Andrew. That wasn't the most pleasant ep to watch. But it was good.

I am officially afraid to click people's links. Scared to accidentally stumble upon Bai Ling nipples.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Fans of good tv rejoice.
Friday Night Lights picked up for 2 more seasons!

Tha Kid said...

So this is how you insert links.

Tha Kid said...

MI-5 was not good. I don't know how the British version (Spooks) could be better unless they use none of the scenes from this version.

I don't think anyone can say it's comparable to 24 with a straight face.

Eh. . . maybe the first episode was crap and I should watch more episodes, but I have no patience.

Chris JC said...

No, you're probably right. After all, British TV lacks the high end of drama.

Thing is with things like Spooks and hustle is that the BBC clearly want to make "American style" programmes and seemingly have fudged the first hurdle which is that Britain isn't America and therefore any attempt at trying to do something in that style ends up looking like LOST's attempts to do the UK in Hawaii (and, if you're a resident of such places, Berlin, Moscow etc as well), but this is a necessary side effect of how the show is made. That being said, they generally do a more convincing London than Doctor Who managed in the first new episode in 2005.

Oh and also - we don't have anything like the same amount of cash here and, frankly, never have since the early 20th century.

Herlihy said...

The best british shows aren't all slick and glossy. Shameless and Skins for instance.

Tha Kid said...

I heard Red Dwarf is good but haven't checked it out.

Chris JC said...

Red Dwarf is perfectly enjoyable, but the more time goes by the more quaint it gets. Also, it's remarkably inconsistent in tone and storyline.

Herlihy said...

When you watch it though, you do have to be very aware about the time it was produced and the fact that it was produced on the scarsest of budgets.

Herlihy said...

The next time Kim and Aimee make some new TLI shirts, can we have some Team Kim and Team Aimee shirts?

PalmerEldritch said...

Lindelof has lined up a new gig.

Star Trek sequel

i doubt it'll affect LOST that much... but still a little worried. :p

PalmerEldritch said...

hey! wake up, internet!!!!

Jordan from the 206 said...

Seriously. Talk about something interesting, so I can chime in. :P

Chris JC said...

Lest anyone think that I enjoy doing America down and bigging Britain up, allow me to give to you a list of 20 genuine ridiculous complaints by stupid Brits abroad made to ABTA, the Association of British Travel Agents:

* A tourist at a top African game lodge overlooking a waterhole, who spotted a visibly aroused elephant, complained that the sight of this rampant beast ruined his honeymoon by making him feel "inadequate".

* A woman threatened to call police after claiming that she’d been locked in by staff. When in fact, she had mistaken the “do not disturb” sign on the back of the door as a warning to remain in the room.

* "The beach was too sandy."

* A guest at a Novotel in Australia complained his soup was too thick and strong. He was inadvertently slurping the gravy at the time.

* "Topless sunbathing on the beach should be banned. The holiday was ruined as my husband spent all day looking at other women."

* "We bought 'Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five euros (£3.50) from a street trader, only to find out they were fake."

* "No-one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were startled."

* "It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England it only took the Americans three hours to get home."

* "My fiancé and I booked a twin-bedded room but we were placed in a double-bedded room. We now hold you responsible for the fact that I find myself pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked."

* "I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends' three-bedroom apartment and ours was significantly smaller."

* "The brochure stated: 'No hairdressers at the accommodation'. We're trainee hairdressers - will we be OK staying here?"

* "There are too many Spanish people. The receptionist speaks Spanish. The food is Spanish. Too many foreigners." (this, by he way, is THE quintessential Briton Abroad complaint)

* "We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as yellow but it was white."

* "We had to queue outside with no air conditioning."

* "It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel."

* "I was bitten by a mosquito - no-one said they could bite."

* "I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts."

* "It's lazy of the local shopkeepers to close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during 'siesta' time - this should be banned."

* "On my holiday to Goa in India, I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food at all."

* "We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our swimming costumes and towels."

Brits = Twits.

PalmerEldritch said...

does it seem like we have less crazy theories lately? is that just cuz we're over crazy theories? or is it cuz we're getting all the answers all of a sudden?

also, WHERE THE SMEG IS DESMOND?! but, uh, no spoilers.

Chris JC said...

Seriously, I don't know if it's a holdover from the Empire or what, but the number of Brits who go to other countries and then complain that nobody speaks English and that the food is not what they're used to is quite ludicrous.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Chris, You and I could have a very interesting discussion about this. Having British relatives as well as traveling throughout most of Europe, I've seen first hand what it's like. Most of the Brits I know in London view all the rest of Europe (which they refer to as "the continent" or funny enough "Europe") as nothing more than a big waste with a few nice beaches sprinkled in. And yeah, my theory tends to center around the whole former British Empire thing. Which to that I say, "How long ago was that?!!!" lol. I like to joke that Brits are snooty (they're not all btw) to America. But they are REALLY snooty towards the rest of Europe, as it is so sub-standard compared to glorious England. And for the record, I quite like the UK.

Palmer, I think it has to do with the style of the show now. Not only are we getting so many answers now. The added mystery that we are getting is very heavy handed and more obvious than in years past. Not nearly the level and ambiguity as there used to be. The show is a lot more "what you see is what you get" than we are used to.

andrew. said...

- i think Dan has to come back in a big way this week. Someone has to freak out about Ben's "death." I still don't think there's any way that a 12 year old kid getting shot in the chest in the middle of the jungle is going to survive, but after listening to this week's round of podcasts, it seems that most people assume that Dr. Miracle Shephard is going to operate.

- Anybody stick with United States Of Tara? The finale just aired. I liked the show. Toni Collette was great. It was a refreshingly light, 1/2 hour dramedy.

- i just got the new album from Pittsburgh's own Zombi and am listening to it right now. It's awesome. Anyone that found themselves unconsciously tapping their toes to the Goblin score for George Romero's Dawn Of The Dead should definitely check them out.

- uh, boobies.

Chris JC said...

Suspiria for me, Although Goblin's "Zombi" is pretty exciting for all the unusual jazz chords it throws around.

Jordan - do you find the US is getting a bit like Britain in the Empire building, world domination stakes? Do Americans try not to go abroad as it's filthy and the food is weird?

memphish said...

A problem I have with He's Our You is that it has left nothing to talk about. Sayid kills chickens, international men of mystery and sex partners, and possibly Harry Potter who will either not die or come back to life and nothing will change.

As for Desmond and Dan and their missingness -- Desmond is burying Penny and arranging child care for Charlie like Sun and Kate did before returning to the Island. Do you think you can just drop kids off on the way to LAX like I used to do my dog? Or it takes a lot longer to sail from LA to Guam-ish than from London to LA. Dan is traveling through time trying to not warn Charlotte, but not being able to stop himself and is hoping he'll get at least 108 minutes to bury her this time.

Yeah, I got nothing.

I watched the first Tara, but I don't have Showtime. I'll Netflix it when it comes out. I like Toni Collette and liked the premise of the first show.

Jordan from the 206 said...

"Jordan - do you find the US is getting a bit like Britain in the Empire building, world domination stakes? Do Americans try not to go abroad as it's filthy and the food is weird?"

I'm probably going to get some hate here. But screw it. I'm just gonna be honest. I think what you are saying is true. For the middle of America. All those stereotypical hillbillies you see on tv. They don't leave their state, let alone the country. And yes, for some of the same reasons as the Brits. Weird ethnic things intimidating them or weirding them out. Also, they are so far removed for the rest of the word, as the US is in general. But (and this is just purely my own admittedly very limited opinion) people in small towns in the middle of the country are so far from anything, and so surrounded. If they aren't leaving their state or town and visiting NY or LA or other coastal US cities, why are they going to go EVEN farther? The one thing about the US that I've found most Europeans I've met aren't able to understand is just how freaking huge it is. The distance from where I live to Palmer is the same as London to Kazakstan. So yeah, I kinda don't fault Middle America for being the way they are. And before I finish my snooty west coast analyzing of the rest of the country, let me point out that in no way do I think this is a rule or anything. This very blog teaches us that not everyone lives up to those stereotypes.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Andrew, I have not watched Tara. And I'm totally willing to admit that I never gave it a chance out of my pure hatred for Diablo Cody. I've heard it's decent. But still, nothing about it looks awesome enough for me to get over my disdain toward Cody and her obnoxious dialog/self.

elias said...

TLI drinking games - I want in!

Chris - why so down on London? Our taxpayers just saved Scotland from economic oblivion ;)

Jordan from the 206 said...

Chris, One thing I forgot to say. Yes, there are similarities in the "world power" thing. People in a nation get to a point where they are told "This is the best country on earth" so much, that it is ingrained in their mentality. So yeah, you'll unfortunately end up with a bunch of ignorant people spouting off, "Why would I ever want to go there?"

Jordan from the 206 said...

Hey Elias. Did you ever go back to that Jeremy Bentham pub? And if so, do Lost nerds now congregate there?

Jordan from the 206 said...

Anybody watch Heroes last night? Bryan Fuller didn't write the ep, but it's one of the ep's since he re-joined the team. I thought the ep was just ok. Not bad (which we've stated in the past is good when it comes to Heroes), but nothing special. The show does feel a whole lot more focused than it was in the past.

Chris JC said...

Jordan, I enjoyed our little chat - and yes, the size of the States is lost on much of the rest of the world, who tend to think there is such a thing as "An American" whereas the different states are the sizes of countries and are really only united by a largely shared media.

At least, that's how it appears to me.

Also, what about that LOST, eh? Some freaky shit on that island!

elias said...

Haven't been back to The Bentham, Jordan - it's too full of students.

Have you been to or otherwise heard about Galliano Island?

Jordan from the 206 said...

This lady was admitted into the Air Force. Yikes.

memphish said...

I want to chime in on the world travel stuff. My neighbors who are even older than I am are leaving for their first trip to Europe later this week. Both have advanced degrees. Both grew up in smaller towns in Tennessee, but not on some ass backward farm or something. They've both certainly been exposed to and enjoy large cities in the US and they've lived in Memphis or Nashville, populations 1 million, most of their adult lives. Which is all to say they aren't the stereotypical redneck or otherwise dumb American. But . . .

He really doesn't want to go on the trip which is to visit their son who has been living in Southern Spain for the last year. I think one of the downsides for the American doing Europe is that they think they have to go to a bunch of boring museums and stuff. And this guy would much rather be hunting or fishing or even just hiking. If they'd plan the trip that way I think they'd enjoy it more, but then again, you've just flown all that way and shelled out tons of bucks, I guess you better go see the David even though you never go to a museum in the US.

The other thing is that most people, and this definitely includes our friend, get stuck in their ways and don't want to try new things. That's why when they go to Europe, most go on pre-packaged tours where they know at least one person will speak English and they don't have to go to the trouble of trying to figure stuff out or communicate. There's plenty of people who aren't that way, but lots do, especially when they feel very out of water. Our friend won't really mind the weird food, he's a good cook and will try most stuff, but then again, he'll enjoy complaining about it when he gets back. Because that's something he enjoys too. Some people like to wallow in the bad rather than the good.

Jordan from the 206 said...

No, I don't think I have. Looks pretty nice. I've been to Victoria, and of course Vancouver. But never there.

Chris JC said...

So it doesn't look like I've been being snooty about foreign travel, I've found myself applying for a passport recently and have come to the realisation that I can't remember when I last left the UK. I haven't had a passport in all my adult life and I'm 32 now, so that's at least 14 years right there, probably a lot more.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Yeah, Holli. The pre-packaged and sterilized tours are sure to bum anyone out, or at least not allow them to really experience the places they are visiting. I am vehemently against those as they keep you from having the new experiences that make traveling so worthwhile IMO. You might as well just watch the travel channel. The best times I've ever had while traveling abroad include meeting locals and getting lost in areas where I can barely communicate.

Jordan from the 206 said...

Chris, I realize it's not cheap. But you really need to take advantage of Europe and do some traveling, if you ever get the chance. It's the one thing I look at most Brits with and roll my eyes about. You guys are so close to so many extremely different cultures and countries, yet so many don't take advantage. Maybe it isn't so obvious to people over there as it is Americans who have to travel entire days to get anywhere that foreign. In quicker than the time it would take me to fly to California, you can go to Italy, Spain, Greece, etc, and be in a entirely different world. Where as if I jump on a plane for a couple hours am in Montana or Oregon. Whoopee. Do it. You won't be disappointed.

Herlihy said...

"the number of Brits who go to other countries and then complain that nobody speaks English and that the food is not what they're used to is quite ludicrous."

I'm doing a study about this for my English Language module. It's a questionnaire based study about how and why native English speakers don't feel the necessity to learn another language due to the fact that English is the global language.

Should be "interesting" stuff.

Lost? I saw that show. The one with the polar bears? Freaky shit!

PalmerEldritch said...

my biggest gripe about "non-Americans?" speedos. WTF?!

that includes you, french canadians on vacation.

most annoying bullshit moment overseas? hearing an italian tourist in London giving an american tourist in London shit about the treatment of native americans in years past. dude, she's 17. she wasn't there. and you're from an Axis country...

Jordan from the 206 said...

Who wants to meet up with me at the Seattle Comic Con this coming weekend?

andrew. said...

- i used to travel a lot, have been all over the world, but, in the last 4 years, i've developed some strong anxiety about travelling, even an hour away. I still travel around the country a little, but my passport expired 2 years ago, and i haven't renewed it. In another 6 or 7 years, i'll be advocating the bombing of the rest of the world in indifference. :)

Herlihy said...

Chiming in on the travel stuff.

I've not left the country, apart from a two day venture into Wales last year, since I was 15. But those times were just on family holidays to places that are needlessly hot and the only activities are family based and lounging around the pool. The last time I went on holiday, around 6 years ago, it was to the island of Tenerife, to distract myself from mind numbing boredom of staying around the pool, I ended up trekking around the island and seeing this old house where some famous dude lived.

I do want to explore places though, but being a student in this economic climate, that's a tad hard. There's many places I want to visit before I have to settle down and do something meaningful with my life...

t-dot kim said...

I love traveling. In snotty England, and the rest of Europe and all!

:P
