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

I have no money right now, season 5 is on netflix watch instantly, may on monday I'll get it I want the DI kit. now back to watching king of the hill/
hello, new thread.
So who has shelled out for the DI Kit? What's in it? I'm still pissed about the Lost University thing only being on Blu-Ray. I claim DVD discrimination!I bought the regular old DVDs on Tuesday, but I'm still rewatching S2. I'll get to S5 after that and then I want to rewatch S1 before S6 starts to complete that whole mirror seasons thing.Holli
How come we didn't get a new thread for the season 5 dvds when they came out in the UK?how rude.
My Bluray showed up yesterday from amazon. $46 with free shipping. Not bad! The extras are on par with previous sets and i may actually start up on Lost University. Stevi already has and it looks like fun, but if there is too much learnin' i am going to quit.
I did not get the super delux version, because it cost way more and didnt match up with all my other blurays of lost.
super delux version? sigh. i hate double dipping dvds. feeding off the devotion of the fanatics.
I listened to Damon and Carlton's commentary for the first episode. It seemed very rushed, liked they could barely squeeze in everything they wanted to convey. Similarly to all of Season 5 as it seemed very rushed and dumbed down to me. Still it was better than 98% of everything else that was on TV. I think they effectively set up this coming season.
Kinda expected. But before now, never official. Flight of the Conchords not returning for 3rd season.
The same day I bought my LOST DVDs I picked up S1 of Flight of the Conchords on sale at Target. I loved S1; S2 not so much. It was good, but the concept had already worn a bit thin.Holli
Mhhhhhhhhhhhhm I love that new post smell.
I'd like to have seasons 4 and 5 on blu ray. Since I'm not going to be in the mood to watch then anytime soon, I'll wait for the price to go down some. I have to own the entire series eventually.
Carlton mentions Sawyers shoulders in a season five commentary.
they have that deal on amazon where you can buy 1-5 blu ray for 108 dollars. I snatched that up saved me bout $300 practically
woah. that's a metric butt load of savings.is the deal still going on?
Do you think Kate ever found out Sawyer did it with Ana Lucia?As for Amazon, looks like it was a one-day deal. Now it's over $200 for S1-S5 on Blu-Ray.Holli
Still shopping for loved ones? Here's a suggestion.Holli
Hi guys I never post here, but since this is one of the last ways to contact Ralph, I thought I should say that I finally got around to watching Forbidden Zone... Wow. I mean the music was pretty awesome, but I just don't know how to react to that kind of movie. I guess I liked it... I thought the guy suspended over the table was hilarious. But it will definitely take some thought before I can say it was a favorite.
I get the DI kit today it's so awesome, going to watch some tomorrow. it's a wonderful life is on i love this movie
duuuuuuuude.Force Unleashed 2 and Arkham Asylum 2 announced. badassery will ensue in 2010.alex, so Forbidden Zone was entertaining? any chance it's streaming on netflix?sunloc, i caught the end of It's A Wonderful Life and immediately switched the the HD channel. yeah, wasn't being broadcast in HD. :D
PalmerEldritch Force Unleashed 2 looks awesome i liked the first one. Arkham Asylum 2 i cant wait for this game the first was badass mark hamill is a badass joker, and mass effect 2 coming out soon i preorder it, its going to be a good year for games, and just read there's going to be a greenday rockband, Im not really into greenday so im gonna pass.
Yeah it was good. Seeing Danny Elfman play the devil probably makes up for all the weirdness you sit through. But no, its unfortunately not streaming.
i've been pretty spoiled with good games for the PS3 lately. my last three were Batman Arkham Asylum, Uncharted 2, and Assassin's Creed 2. good stuff all around.anyone checked out the VHS or the floppy disks that came with the uber edition of LOST Season 5?
PalmerEldritch the vhs tape is cool, we see a little of it when ben and his dad got to the island there a few more thing nothing like omg but still cool, OMG dexter was so awesome last night, i never saw that coming and i read the books, im going to get a ps3 at some point, i need a hd first,
Hey blogstuds - been so busy haven't been able to check in :(Cannot believe it's a little more that a month till Lost - gots to get S.5 and check out some of this cool sounding shite!Meanwhile,Have television stations ACTUALLY been playing this? Including the boy at the end? Why do I think the mailing address for the production company responsible for this is probably a P.O. Box. Yeeeughlalhuck - disturbing.WARNING - NOT ENTIRELY SAFE FOR WORK WITHOUT HEADPHONES
Watching The Graham Norton Show on BBC1 right now, interviewing Robert Downey Jr. and Irish comedian Ed Byrne.In what must have been a slow moment, they started playing the Google autocomplete game, bringing up the main page and typing the beginning of innocuous phrases and seeing what it suggests."Why is..." garnered the phrase "why is there a dead pakistani on my couch" which caused hilarity and bafflement on the show and a thrill of recognition in me.Sadly they didn't investigate this phrase to find out where it came from.
heheheheheh. yeah, saw that on the interwebs the other day. a bit much. is it a real commercial?chris, it took me reading your tweet to recognize the quote. funny stuff. i've enjoyed the one or two graham norton segments that i've seen but haven't watched an entire show. funny guy though.anyone watching the Caprica pilot streaming online for free? i'm not. yet. although, esai morales held a door for me once. so, maybe i WILL check out Caprica.
I've seen the Caprica pilot on DVD complete with nudity and simulated sex acts. I assume they've toned it down for broadcast. I really liked it despite the fact that Colleen Pickett is a major character.Holli
I got the Dharma Initiative Kit DVD's.... AWESOME!I'm still uncertain as to whether I'll open the confidential envelope from Dharma Security...Didn't get the limited issue Submarine patch :-(
2009 Headlines #18 is particularly blogspot relevant.Holli
if only she had used her powers for good instead of a life of crime.delicious, sexy crime.
i opened theconfidential envelope there's a few things here and there that are on there is cool. i did get the Submarine patch i don't know what to put them on.
GTA4 for under $20 on PS3 at Amazon for the next couple of hours. And Assassin's Creed II for $40 all day.Neither game is for the kiddies, though. Adult language, violence, sexy time, etc.
from @johnnorton 's twitter feed:'What is Love' as performed by a man in a chicken suit.
That just made my day.
Anyone here watch Sons of Anarchy? Just finished the 1st season. And while it started a bit slow, it got pretty, pretty, pretty good. I'm full in, bout to start season 2.
People have been raving about S2 of Sons of Anarchy. It seems like it would similar to Breaking Bad in terms of rough characters and mood. Is that about right Jordan?Holli
Yeah. Just a bit. I'd say much rougher than Breaking Bad. Pretty much in Sopranos territory in terms of questionable ethics.
Listen to Kim's story about how she almost got into a fight.
I asked about it first thing so you guys would listen and not be turned off by the SYTYCD talk.
If you guys missed out on the comic-con 4 day passes, the one day passes are on sale today and they are going FAST
oh, ok then. still steph. you masked a dancing tv show podcast with the dressings of the male bait that is known as the chick fight. still sneaky in my book. lol.
I can't wait to listen to the podcast! In LOST news, that art ARG thingy they did all off season comes to an end tonight. They had an art show in LA; Damon, Carlton, Adam Horwitz, Paul Scheer, Jeff Jensen were all there and the last poster goes on sale tonight. If you're interested this site has followed the game religiously and has all the details.Otherwise The Morgan Freeman Chain of Command.Holli
hope COAIA downloaded to my iPod!holli, that art stuff was an ARG? what?
It was sort of an ARG. There were clues and live reveals and the websites were hacked and revealed early, so yeah, sort of an ARG. I don't know the technical definition. I assume it's arguable.Holli
listening to Steph and Kim (even though i dont care for SYTYCD or its Canadian version SYTYCD, eh).wait... Jacob is dancing on the show??? doing the Abandoned Cabin Shuffle, maybe? awesome!
wait... Kim likes FlashForward?!
I don't think FF is THAT bad. I'd even go to say it's midly enjoyable. But you can't take it seriously. And you really can't compare it with Lost. At all.Halfway through season 2 of Sons of Anarchy. Dang good show.
I think you've got the right attitude toward FF Jordan. As soon as I stopped comparing it to Lost, my enjoyment level rose (or at least things didn't bug me so much). I'm behind several eps though.Anyone watch the season finale of Always Sunny in Philadelphia? It is so nice to have a comedy where I can be pretty much guaranteed at least one good laugh (usually multiple) each episode. I love having that to look forward to each day - Then I look forward to sleep :)
Along with Curb, Always Sunny is prob the most consistently funny thing on tv. Both are very much acquired senses of humor though. Not for everyone.
what's up blogspot!- listened to the So We Think We Can Dance edition of Confessions Of An Internet Addict with Stephanie & Kim. Solid fun, even though i don't know anything about that show.it's fun to imagine that, in an effort to save face, Kim has reversed her role in the near-fight scenario. ;)- Always Sunny In Philadelphia finale was kind of a lesser episode for the show, but like MB says, even a below par episode of Sunny has some big laughs. You can buy a Flipadelphia t-shirt if'n you're wanting one.- Dexter season 4 wrapped up this past week too. I really enjoyed this season. John Lithgow was awesome.- got my LOST season 5 DVDs. i watched the commentaries & special features, but i've been unmotivated to start a rewatch. I enjoyed trying to untangle the time travel stuff week to week, but now i'm not very enthusiastic to revisit it all. Still stoked for season 6 though!- I'm really liking 'Misfits,' the UK show that's sort of Heroes meets Skins. Just 'got' episode 5 to watch tonight!- Also happy that Better Off Ted is back. That's a sharply written show (unlike that awful show Testees)rock on.
The Forbidden Zone is NOT for everyone, in fact, i am not sure it is for anyone. I know that Ben, Ryan and Myself are HUGE fans as is all of our significant others, but it is hands down the Strangest film i have ever seen.Kirk, i have it on my itunes, i will see about getting you a copy somehow. Alex, did our words of warning, brace you for what you actually saw?
What the heck is Testees?And yes, Better Off Ted is very sharp. One of the more underappreciated shows on right now.
Testees was the dumb show on either FX or Spike about the guys who sold themselves for medical experiments with wacky, often scatological results.
I tried Better off Ted and didn't care for it. I have a couple of Always Sunnys to catch up on.I just bought Inglourious Basterds on Blu-ray for 15 bucks! Too bad I have to wait til the SYTYCD finale is over tonight to gather the family around for the Nazi killin.I am loving Fringe right now. Hopefully Santa will bring me season one and I can catch up to know what the heck is going on.
flashforward is sort of a clusterfuck. but the premise is just so promising that i can't stop watching. it should be an excellent show. but it sure isn't yet.there's a lot going for it but it falls short a lot of the time. hoping it'll pick up soon.i'll see if Forbidden Zone is on regular netflix or if it's on Hulu or something and get back to you.uncharted 2 sometime soonish, folks?i'll probably have an hour of PS3 sometime around 6 eastern tonight.
Season 2 of Fringe is a lot better than the beginning of Season 1 of Fringe. It's still mostly monster of the week stuff, but they've developed the characters sufficiently that I like that now.I love Better Off Ted. Even when I don't laugh out loud I smirk like Veronica. Portia de Rossi's eyebrows freak me out though.Holli
Sounds like a plan. 6 eastern (3 pacific) works good for me.
except that i have to get my haircut at 7. damn it.but i should be able to get twenty minutes or so of uncharted 2 in.
crap. took ten minutes to log in to uncharted 2 multiplayer for no apparent reason.and now i have to take off in five or ten. sorry to have to miss out on some Uncharted 2 multiplayer gang. crap!
5 Reasons Die Hard Is The Best Christmas Movie Ever MadeYippee-kay-ay mothaf***er
MB!!! You read my mind. We had the SWAT team Christmas party/December training today. (December training usually consists of inventory, policy review, and watching a movie before the Christmas party.) This year I brought 2 movies. The first was, in my opinion, the GREATEST CHRISTMAS MOVIE OF ALL TIME, Die Hard. That's fantastic!Kim,... why so angry?
Palmer, you're suck a tease.MB & Jon, totally agree on Die Hard.
Yeah Ralph, your warnings were about as good as they could be... I don't know if anyone could describe what you are in for when you watch forbidden zone.Palmer, I got it from Netflix so you should be good there
"you're suck a tease."yowzahs!!!anyhow, Uncharted 2 is taking me about five or ten minutes to log into multiplayer. anyone else having that issue?
I did when I played last week. But today I logged on pretty fast.Anyone seen this yet? The final of the Lost prints that they've been doing. Apparently Cuselof are teasing that there are 2 hints in it that tease stuff for season 6. Not exactly a large picture to analyze though.
War Machine. Woot!
Speaking of Robert Downey Jr, and because I have connections, innit, I've just come back from a private screening of Sherlock Holmes, and will say the following:* Hans Zimmer* Mark Strong plays the villain well, but you spend the whole film thinking how good he'd be as Holmes* At one point, this journey gets made in about twenty seconds* American Holmes + American love interest = film that's not really meant for us lot* I went through the actual Baker Street to get there* Period recreation of London is fucking amazing* Three out of fiveIt's bloody cold out there, kids.
Oh, and I have the score and soundtrack to Forbidden Zone despite having never seen it.You may sense the hand of Ralph in this scenario, and you'd be correct.
Xenophobe :POn one of my many visits to London, I had a tube pass one day and was just going all over the place. I made a point to get off at Baker Street, just cuz. Got there and saw the Holmes statue and was like, "that's it?" Not sure what I was expecting. But it was a fun jaunt. Looking back, I should've done some method tourism and smoked a pipe or something.
Caught up with Sons of Anarchy. Still recommend it a good deal. But to Holli and those concerned with shows being dark, violent, and/or uncomfortable, definitely proceed with caution. Some of the stuff that goes down at the end of the 2nd season even made me a bit uncomfortable. Still quite good though. Much better than V or FF.
Anyone have any ideas about what the hidden clues in that Lost picture are?
You can see closeups of the poster here. It discusses what they think the hidden clues are. I won't post here for the extreme spoiler-phobes. I haven't waded thru the comments to see if others agree or can find any significance in these supposed "clues."Holli
more LOST art.
I remember trying to watch the Forbidden Zone once after ralph- talked about it. I didn't get very far with it. Did I mention how much I love Fringe? I love it. A lot.
good! cuz it's fun stuff.and Anna Torv is totally f'n awesome in my book for being Nariko in Heavenly Sword so i'm glad that her show doesn't suck. all caught up yet?
Lord, no. I'm watching Fringe at work because I'm watching X Files with Morgan at home. Hopefully, I'll get Fringe season one with Santa money immediately after Christmas. Then Morgan and I can catch up before it comes back. Does it come back soon? It looks like it won't return til April. We should be caught up by then. I'm really loving X Files too now that I have a good quality video of season one. I just couldn't connect with Mulder and Scully watching online. I now can see why she put up with him all those years. Some have argued he's the one that put up with her.
Re Fringe -- there will be 4 new episodes starting 1/14 and then after 2/4 they'll break until April.Holli
What's up everybody?Fringe has been just great this season. The last couple episodes have been particularly awesome! I really wish FOX would get away from these hiatuses, though, and just make it a fall or spring only show. The breaks are killing it's ratings.Palmer - I never realized that Anna Torv was the voice of Nariko. I have a whole new level of respect for her! Heavenly Sword was a f'n sweet game.I also think it's a total joke that John Noble hasn't been nominated for an acting award yet. He's turned Walter Bishop into the most emotionally and psychologically complex mad scientist ever! Anyone catch that Michael Emerson is nominated for another Golden Globe? It's amazing that LOST wasn't up for more. My thought, though, is that next year's awards are going to be like a lifetime achievement type deal where everyone who wanted to give them awards in previous years will be forced to after Season 6 because they won't have another shot! Anyone agree? How cool would it be for LOST to sweep every major Emmy next year?Got my 5 LOST Blu-Rays as well. The Season 5 extras are pretty cool, but I thought the Easter Egg with Cheech Marin making the sandwich over and over in "The Lie" had to be the most boring 5 minutes of my life. THAT is why I could never work in TV or Movies. That monotony would drive me NUTS!!!Anyone had a chance to see Avatar yet? I'd like to get some some feedback before I invest 3 hours of my life.
I hate monotany too.I didn't really care to see Avatar because it has two of my least favorite things- excess and non-humans. But then I heard this review and decided Morgan and I will see it Tuesday. I'm afraid I'll regret not seeing it in theaters if not.
DirecTV LOST Specials coming to prep you for Season 6
I got a puppy! :D
I saw Avatar in 3D yesterday and had a good time. The 3D wasn't really gimicky as I was expecting except for a scene or two in the beginning. Even though it's mostly an animated movie, the aliens looked and acted believable. I'd say go see it in 3D, it's worth it.
hey, brennan. long time no see.i hear avatar's story is f'n terrible but the visuals and action scenes are amazing. that about right?kelly jo, what type of pup? what's his/her name? i'm a fan of other people's dogs but dont have the patience to take care of one myself.
Palmer- she's a bichon King Charles mix.
I don't know of any of your have been following this, but an internet campaign to stop the winner of The X Factor getting the Christmas #1 single for the fifth year running has resulted in our Christmas 2009 #1 being...Killing in the Name by Rage Against the Machine.SEASON'S GREETINGS!
And apparently, Brittany Murphy was such a massive fan of Joe McElderry, the X Factor winner, that when she heard, she dropped dead.Is it too soon for jokes?
Rumor has it that this is the last year for American Idol, and it is going to be replaced by an American X factor with Simon Cowell.
Well, Simon has been very vocal about wanting to bring X Factor over to the States. And who can blame him? He's just paid as a judge on American Idol, whereas he would own the whole show.If I'm honest, I much prefer X Factor's format to the Idol format.
Palmer,The story for Avatar isn't anything new. I wouldn't say the story is bad but it does get pretty predicable with what is going to happen towards the end, at least for me.
how far did everyone make it with your LOST rewatches? mine died in season 2 thanks to video games.
Palmer rewatched 1-5 i still had season 5 on dvr then i got the season dvd box set then tried to doing another rewatch, I'm on Raised by Another, videos games do take alot of my time,
I've rewatched 3,4 and 2 in that order. I think I still have time to get 5 and 1 in before 2/2/10. Might start 5 this week; might not.Holli
video games will probably continue to dominate because i only have three more trophies in Assassin's Creed 2 before hitting Platinum (get all 100 feathers, use a cape that you get for getting all 100 feathers, and kick a dude while using a certain device made by Leonardo which will require i replay the game about halfway since i missed it the first time), and because i want to replay Uncharted 2 on Crushing. heheheh.but season 1 was awesome during my rewatch.oh! farscape (complete series) is $58 on amazon. and the mini-series (after the fourth and final season) is only $8. that's $64 which is significantly less than a single season used to cost.
and to tie it into LOST, farscape's Scorpius was in the Rose and Bernard episode as the healer in Australia.
I just started watching farscape for the first time its on netflix watch instantly,
it's a little rough in the beginning and season four has some mis-steps but the second half of season 1 and then seasons 2 and 3 are fan-f'ing-tastic. also, if you're a nuBSG fan, you'll notice some glaring similarities in villains eventually.oh. and the creature design is both insane and glorious.just dont watch The Peacekeeper Wars mini-series until you're done with the series proper.
oh. and Aeryn Sun = Chloe from Uncharted 2. and Zhaan was a Bond girl.
To tie Uncharted 2 to Lost; the Sergent in The Constant is the vocie of Zoran Lazarovic. Anyway, I'm 7 episodes into season 4, which is where I started my rewatch. I was planning to watch seasons 1-5 but time got away from me. I'm going to try and get back to season 1 at least before the start of season 6.
APPARENTLY, Yun Jin Kim screen tested for the lead female Na'vi in Avatar. That's all.BOOBIES
Go see Avatar in 3D! Cinema has been changed forever. The story was lame, how it was going to resolve was very obvious, but you can see exactly how each of the 500 million dollars were spent. I spent the next several hours after seeing the movie trying to get my head off the planet of Pandora.
so, the movie was a bucket of derivative suck but the spectacle was worth admission?
p.s. i'm an avatar hater. having not seen it. :p
So in non-Avatar talk, I'm sorry Palmer but you cannot have Red Ryder BB gun, you'll shoot your eye out.
Spectacle doesn't even begin to describe it. Go see it.
Still looking for the perfect stocking stuffer? How about the most kick ass energy drink around!
Or a decanter full of this.
That last one should clearly be the drink of Season 6. I dare people to make one for the premier and imbibe every time Hurley says dude and every time a "dead" character turns out not to be dead.Holli
What cracks me up the most about the Seagal energy drink is that one of the FLAVORS is called, "Asian Experience." What the heck does Asian experience taste like? I'm not sure I want to know.
Asian Experience is "salty." That answer is so obvious. Just ask Jack.Holli
wow. i missed a doozy of a day at the blogspot, eh??so, netflix streaming is pretty much awesome. 7 episodes into Dexter season 1. Tony Tucci looked super familiar and we were trying to figure out who played him for a few hours until the lovely girlfriend figured it out. Bram from LOST! And Jacob just showed up. Fantastic.also, just watched a streaming episode of Farscape on there too. which episode are you up to, sonny?after i exhaust the Dexter supply (they have at least seasons 1 and 2), what should i watch streaming next?besides LOST season 5?
Just saw Mikhail pop up as a baddie in an ep of Burn Notice. Those Lost people are everywhere.
it's a christmas miracle:the Bacon Cupuh... for food. not athletic support.
I just watched Libby on Men of a Certain Age. More LOST actors making the rounds. Clancy Brown (Kelvin) is on a show starting this winter. Some lawyer show.Holli
Bacon Cup? Christmas miracle doesn't begin to describe that - GENIUS! Must use that - just don't have anyone else in my family who would probably share the wonderment. But hey - if they're not cookin', they can keep their opinions to themselves - I'LL have theirs :)"I also think it's a total joke that John Noble hasn't been nominated for an acting award yet"Amen - well said. I have also been surprised he hasn't gotten any Emmy action/mention yet.Really hoping I don't have an "oh sh*t" moment tomorrow night after all the stores close. We have all in-laws and 2 out of town aunts joining us this year, but I THINK we've got everyone covered (he says while silently doing a hundredth head count)
Palmer, i watched the first ep of far, going to watch more, i'm watching right from the earth to the moon, I have seen Goodwin and u.s. Marshal I'm loving it i haven't watched it before, getting Assassin's Creed 2 in the mail today on sometime next week, I LOVE DEXTER i started watching it before season 3 started its awesome that they are lost now,
My recently divorced bald uncle is coming to ours for Christmas... I've got him a big black afro wig. I will probably find this hilarious.
Can you get him a big black girlfriend to go with it? Not only will he really appreciate it, but they could also tour as an Ike and Tina Turner tribute act.
not sure those characters would be the best to imitate as a couple...But getting a balding relative to wear an afro-wig is always an entertaining prospect :D
MY EYES! MY EYES!
I always wondered what you looked like Jordan. Nice Xmas card photo.Holli
it's like Russell Brand in twenty years. awesome.HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVE!!!!!
I saw Avatar last and thought over all it was amazing. Even though there were many plot holes, I didn't care I loved almost every thing about this movie. The only thing I would of changed was replace Giovanni Ribisi with Michael Emerson. Mainly because I think that Michael could of played this slimy character so much better
Something about the Rock Band guitar next to all the bad ass gunz and ammo just cracks me up. And does anyone want to venture a guess as to what the pinkish-purple things are on the left hand side of his twin bed? Yikes!
Cool shirt. Too bad you have to live in LA to get it.
