Everyone in OKC is starting to get more into basketball because we have a pro team now.

I still have a grudge against the sport because NCAA used to pre-empt Lost back in the day.

p.s. I like Lost.

PalmerEldritch said...

hey, i also like LOST.




so, is sawyer gunna help jin look for Sun or just sail on out on the sub with kate now that her hair looks good again?

aimee is lost said...

I think that's the whole questiony twist with him being the world's greatest liar (then ironically using the truth to play one side against the other.)

Bitch-slapping Claire :)

ALMOST shanking Kate :) --> :(

WTF is in the sub?

Bye bye skeletor baby :(

aimee is lost said...

The celebrity equivalent of my date last night

scrdmnkydst said...

In that locked room on the sub? I can't help but think that it's going to be a bomb that is going to inevitably be set off in the finalé.

Just like the Hatch door in Exodus.

Just like the Swan blowing up in Live Together, Die Alone.

Just like the Others being blown up in Through The Looking Glass.

Just like the Freighter blowing up in There's No Place Like Home.

Just like the Nuclear Bomb being used in The Incident.

(These writers really need to stop blowing things up...)

PalmerEldritch said...

behind the door is... THE ALTERNATE UNIVERSE!?!?! ZOMG!!!!

ok, not really.

[ally] said...

Behind the locked door is a room with a pole where Sawyer will dance to a song from the mixtape he made for Kate.

aimee is lost said...

Did you just say NOT have explosions? How do expect us to know when to react to something? They already took away that trombone sliding sound.

[ally] said...

Lost without explosions would be like Lost without awesome ass-kickings being handed out.

aimee is lost said...

The Champagne Room is for Aimee and Aimee only.

Lex said...

sometimes a locked room is just a locked room

memphish said...

I'm pretty sure the locked room will go off before the end of the season, just like Jughead. It's one of those cliches writers fall back on.

I realized that Flash Forward has screwed my ability to record it and NBC comedies and watch hoops all at the same time tonight. Is anyone here gonna watch FF? If it were up to me I wouldn't, but the Hubby wants to give it another go.

Holli
/the good wife
(which is a very good law procedural in case you're wondering)

mb said...

Wow Ryan - I've truly not thought about the fact that there's been some kind of big bang (TWSS) at the end of every season - lol. Cool pull.
I also agree - need the explosions - they're cool :)

memphish said...

Every single one of my picks is losing in the early going. If that would only hold true for Kentucky, I'd be okay to go down in flames in the 1st round. (Sorry Jon; we're still holding a grudge.)

Holli

mb said...

I actually might get back on board with FF. We watched the clip show (god - I've become a clip show watcher), and I actually realized it's usefulness. I actually do feel like I can start watching without going back and reviewing. We'll see if they've improved the writing now that they SHOULD be in their stride.

scrdmnkydst said...

Surely the writers could come up with something that fills the show with suspense and not involve some sort of bomb? It's sort of losing it's effect with it being used every year.

memphish said...

Something we'll need to know in case we crash on an Island

Holli

mb said...

missed Ally's pole comment on first readthru - lol :))

mb said...

Knowledge is good - thanks Holli :)


/Thumper? Thumper....where are you...?

aimee is lost said...

What about the season 3 hiatus cliffhanger? No explosions.

KATE, DAMMIT, RUN!

PalmerEldritch said...

AND KEEP ON RUNNING! RIGHT INTO THE OPEN TEETH OF THE DHARMA SHARK!

Stephanie said...

I hear nothing but good things about The Good Wife. But then again I hear the show could be about Hilary Clinton. I'm against anything trying to gain sympathy for her.

[ally] said...

I hear The Good Wife is a good show too. But it just doesn't seem like something I wanna watch.

t-dot kim said...

That yahoo bracket thing is bullshit. I filled it out last night, and it says I didn't pick a winner--which I did--I did a tie breaker and everything...whatever fuck you yahoo!!!

I automatically will lose b/c of a glitch in the Matrix. Fuck computers.

I watch The Good Wife. Meh--if I miss it, I miss it. It's not the end of the world. I don't remember anyone's names in the show b/c a bunch of the actors are famous for being in other TV shows, like Mr. Big from Sex and the City and Grams from Dawson's Creek. Oh ya...and Nurse Hathaway from ER. (I watch too much tv)

memphish said...

I don't think the Good Wife is at all like Hilary, so don't let that deter you. I agree Kim, it's certainly no big deal if I miss it, but then it's on my On Demand, so I can always catch up. It would be a good show to watch this summer if you're bored. I'm sure CBS will re-run it. I think they're the only network that still does that, but I think they still do it.

scrdmnkydst said...

are TLI still recording live tonight?

JoeSC said...

Holy Shit! Thanks for reminding me Ryan. I'm not on Twitter so I totally forgot about it.

Kelly Jo said...

I like Lost

Kyle from Kentucky said...

I miss Desmond

JoeSC said...

I agree Kyle. That's probably my only real disappointment about this season so far.

I figured after he went missing for most of Season 5 that he would play a pretty big role in Season 6 and with every passing episode I'm realizing how much better this season could be with a little Desmond here and there.

Kyle from Kentucky said...

maybe ol Des was given some orange juice and is now unconscious locked in a secret sub room

[ally] said...

...or maybe he's in the locked room!

/ dun dun dun!!!

[ally] said...

...or maybe he's in the locked room!

/ dun dun dun!!!

[ally] said...

my comment was so good it had to post twice :p

clementinesdaddy said...

Maybe Walt is in the locked room and when they let him out his is going to go all Hitchcock on Locke's ass and send a thousand Hurley birds at him...

Kyle from Kentucky said...

im tryin to think of what really is in the locked room. like theres no bomb that can destroy the smoke i'm sure but no chance Widmore wants to destroy the islands. I bet he wants to take Jacob or Darth Lockes place. So I bet its a person. Probably is Des. God I hope so

PalmerEldritch said...

so, what do the flash sideways need to do to grab our attention more?

does it need an overarching plot to it? does it need to connect to the regular universe more?

memphish said...

What I need to stop "hating" the sideways world (Confessions of an Internet Addict reference) is some feeling that the X world is more than a what if scenario. I need some reason why the lives I saw for 5 years and the X lives are different yet both are "true."

Holli

Chris JC said...

The Miles and Sawyer cop show is pretty much the only LOST spin-off I might consider watching. Con Squad.

Like a globetrotting Anti-Hustle.

scrdmnkydst said...

Setup....

andrew. said...

- The Jack & Jay 30hour live podcast for Autism Speaks is today. i had a little trouble finding the link for the broadcast on their webpage or twitter feed. so i thought i'd post it here. http://www.ustream.tv/user/jayandjack
Alirio is basically setting things off with a little Battlestar Galactica talk starting around 12:30pm
the rest of the schedule is: here some big guests this year, blogspot & otherwise.

- got kind of fuxored on my March Madness picks in the 1st round. Holding out hope that i at least beat Kirk.

- stumpled onto this site: www.lostrofl.com which is hit & miss but mostly a fun diversion for us Lost nerds.

- Kabl-Arzt-Off

I was thinking that too :)
I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for a battle between two smoke monsters (of sorts) :)
