awww yay charlie is not officially dead yet! i was tearing up expecting the worst (voluntarily drowning has GOT to be one of the more painful ways to die) and lo and behold the story just got a lot more interesting! (i like charlie, unlike so many, so i'm happy... although who knows if he'll survive the finale)

also, did the losties really need to waste valuable and limited explosives on a demonstration? it was fun to watch, but man... Jack, as if I wasn't already questioning your leadership skills... fully believe in your capacity to be a dick, though.

That ep kinda pissed me off. A LOT of build up. I was really ready to say goodbye to Charlie. He was going to die with a lot more dignity than he lived his life.

The new blonde, "Bonnie," was on an ep of Six Feet Under. She's good. I thought the brunette was Cindy for second.

Did anyone really think that the station was really flooded? Come on. I don't care how crazy the island is, water will *always* short out electronics.

Jane,

I don't think Sayid will die until he gets some closure with Nadia. She made a cameo in this ep, so the writers haven't forgotten about her.

The women in the new station (and whoever else is down there) are probably wondering why no one has come for them. Presumably there is only one sub, and they might think they're trapped down there.

the Swan.
the Arrow.
the Staff.
the Pearl.
the Hydra.
the Flame.
the Looking Glass?

What in the heck? Could the name be more corny? The only reason I can think of for a name such as that is so they could name the finale "Through the Looking Glass"

I must confess guys: I actually became very sad when Charlie was about to "die" It was the violins...and the Hurley hug...and the crying...!
Curse me if you wish, I never thought it could happen, but it did! Whatev!

Hey, Benard and Rose are still alive! and still oddballs...good old couple.

One more week left, guys...i'm sooo pumped!

"That ep kinda pissed me off. A LOT of build up. I was really ready to say goodbye to Charlie. He was going to die with a lot more dignity than he lived his life."

I actually liked this episode. It's true there was a lot of build up, but in Three Minutes' and the season 2 finale there was a lot of build up too. This episode to me felt like the first part of a three hour season finale.
This also was a more character base d episode then a mythology based episode. I love both the myth episodes and the character episodes. I've always liked Charlie and I've always thought that he didn't get enough screen time. I started tearing up several times through the episode, there was some good writing here.
I know lots of people thought Charlie was a goner tonight, but I also heard theory's saying that it was too obvious and wasn't gonna die. I thought for sure that he was gonna die. I thought knew these writers but I guess I didn't.


The last five minutes of the episode I was barely breathing. I loved Charlie and Desmond going alone on the boat together; the one fated to die and his guardian rowing to "The Looking Glass" to go through to a different world/dimension or heaven/hell. I loved Desmond trying to go instead, but Charlie knew it was his test, so he tested fate and dived with weight so there was no chance of return, and when he finally emerged and had went "through the looking glass" he started shouting that he was alive, it felt surreal like he had passed the test, like he had a new lease on life.
And then those two women with guns came, and now I have no idea where this is going, but it's definitely going somewhere as the next episode is called "Through The Looking Glass".

A few points:

*Is The Looking Glass the place where Michael and Walt are? Ben said if Michael went a certain direction "he would find rescue". Maybe Ben wasn't lying maybe The Looking Glass has some way of being "rescue". Obviously it will play a big part in the finale.

*I don't know if Foxys acting has changed on purpose or not but theres something weird going on with Jack.
SPOILER ALERT
The finale is Jack-centric, so I really hope he has a finale worthy flashback and that it'll be an island flashback showing his time with the Others.

*I'm kinda disappointed that there isn't a plan for a full on war. Shooting tents filled with dynamite is boring, hopefully something will go wrong and there'll be an awesome shoot out between the Others and the Losties. It would be cool to see Sayid and that new Other"Ryan" fight one-on-one.

*The name"Looking Glass" makes me think of a gateway or a guarded entrance to the island. Maybe everyone who comes to the island with the sub (Ben, Juliet) has to first go "trough The Looking Glass" but they don't know it because there tranquilized.
Juliet said there was an "accident there" could that maybe be the incident?

*if Charlie actually does die eventually will Claire be rescued r was Desmond lying? If claire stays on island who will be the new surrogate father? Maybe Jack can help out his half-sis taking care of Aaron, but the way things are going it seams like it might be Hurley.

*Got this of Lostpedia: "Will Desmond's flashes end now that he has been hit in the head with a paddle again?" it's possible seeing as how TPTB have said the-charlie-dies-flashs-before-your-
eyes-thing will be resolved by the end of the season. But that might I kind of crappy way of resolving it.
Also: "Are the two women inside The Looking Glass surviving members of Rousseau's science expedition?"

So we have three major things happening at the end of season 3. At the end of season 2 it was Sayid and his sailboat/The Hatch implosion, turning the failsafe/JKS captured by the Others. This time we have Desmond and Charlie at The Looking Glass/Sayid fighting at the beach/Jack leading everyone to the radio tower. It's gonna be awesome.

I was a little diasppointed with this one... at every commercial break I thought to myself, "wow, nothing has happened since the last commercial break"... It felt like this entire episode should have been condensed to about half an episode - then the rest should have been a little bit more with Charlie in the "looking glass" and Jack leading the rest of the Losties through the jungle, just to get a little more exposition and leave us closer to the actual showdown... Then we could have left this episode with the Others coming over the horizon, Jack and the crew running into Ben, and some insightful comment from some of the Looking Glass chicks...

But I do have a couple questions:
- If Charlie did not know his future, would he have gotten to the station and found the switch before those chicks found him, instead of reaching the station and screaming like an idiot and attracting all that attention?

- Are those chicks in that station hiding from the super sperm that kills all the rest of the Other Ladies? If I were an Other-ette, I would get as far away from jizz as I could get.

Jyst found this good post on the transmissions site:

"Could the Looking Glass station be the “shortcut” to the mainland that gets the Others back and forth in seemingly record time? They take the submarine to the the station and use another means of transport from there to the mainland. Would explain why people have to be sedated for travel or in on the secret."

I have to completely agree with you-know-who that this was a great episode. Sure the end had a somewhat irritating twist, but doesn't that make you just want to see the finale that much more now? That's good writing, baby!

joe- did you really say the women in the Looking Glass are down there hiding from the uber-jizz? LMAO nice!

you-know-who- interesting find on the transmission. I found this similar theory posted on Lostpedia... (http://lostpedia.com/wiki/Greatest_Hits/Theories)

"The Looking Glass is the "real gateway back and forth in TIME". The door you see behind the two girls, one believed to be Annie opens to another area that has a circular looking door. You could see it for a brief moment. THAT door is the door to a worm-hole into the future, that is, if the wormhole is still open after they blew up the hatch.

Justin, was it you that had that crazy and original theory of an underwater wormhole? If that was you, then you must get some serious points for that (assuming it's true). Either way, there's a lot of credit involved. "Through" the looking glass obviously implies something on the order of a wormhole or transporter or something. Woot! Can't wait for next week.

Just as a warning, I was googling for a better picture of the looking glass schematic and came across some spoilers. Supposedly somebody leaked some big info about the finale. I don't know much about it because I don't want to, but I just wanted to warn people that it may be out there, and don't look for it or read about it if you can help it; just wait 6 more days and enjoy the episode live, IMHO.

The schematic seems to denote the cable as an "anchor." But the station is clearly sitting on the ocean floor. Strange.

How could a cable that thin really do anything to keep a station that big in place?

These questions are more on the next Lost Lowdown!

After LOST ended I thought it would be interesting to actually watch those 2 on their internet TV show. I enjoyed it because of the obnoxious self-righteous religious tones and the over explanation of simplistic or non important points.

I will give them credit for turning the camera and watching this train wreck.

When I listened to their show last week Clifford explained for over 2 minutes why he was not going to play a 4 minute call. He then took another minute to say he would play it at the end of the broadcast. I love nonsense like this

The worst LOST PODCAST is LOST COMMUNITY with David A. Dien.

He is hyper and loud and his laugh is the second most grading shrill sound I ever heard.

He is probably a nice guy but does not understand that some of the best humor is subtle and that laughing uproarously at your (slightly funny) jokes is ingenious. That is the beauty of the LOST LOWDOWN when Claude or Justin laugh, it is either a clever thought or self-depricating.

The most grading sound was the extremely repetitive (and we are literally talking well over 100 times) censoring the name Nikki and Paulo with loud obnoxious buzzers. A joke might be doing it once or maybe twice not everytime. Censorship is really fucked up, if anything it draws much more attention to what you are trying to censor, for example f**k stands out 100 times more than fuck.

In their last episode Cliff joined them and to be totally honest, when Cliff is not running the ship he is pretty good.

Bruce,
I like Razzle Dazzle, but I'd also nominate:
"You're wasting your time Bug Eye."
-Cooper to Ben

Regarding the other podcasts...
I completely agree with you about the David A Dein podcast. I only listen to them to hear the insights of their contributor Dark Angel. However Dark Angel hasn't been around in weeks.
The Nikki and Paolo beeping thing was funny at the beginning but definitely got annoying as the weeks went on.
Also, David A Dein can be a bit overbearing at times. Especially when he thinks he is right about a basic Lost fact even when he is obviously wrong; even when his cohost is trying to convince him that he's wrong (one recent instance was the name of the actor playing Horace).
I'll stick out one more podcast with these guys, but doubt I will be downloading next season.

OK, regarding GSPN. The Frau has a problem with people that disagree with her theories or people that give constructive criticism. I used to understand her frustrations, but now it's just obnoxious. Also, she still berates and hits her husband and I guess I feel a bit bad for the guy. My mother is a harpee and poor Rev. Cliff reminds me of my poor dad in that respect.
They definitely remind me of the bad movie in Mystery Science 3000, as others have posted about earlier. It's almost like a train wreck; you can't turn away. I guess their new studio cam is a bonus in that respect.

Do you remember the gspn podcast at the beginning of the year when Rev Cliff said his New Year's Resolution was to lose 100 lbs?
I wonder how far long he is now.

Regarding Lost, I rewatched Greatest Hits and was bored. This episode officially goes on my list of episodes not watch when the Season 3 dvds come out.

Is Jack growing out his hair?

Also, if there is an 'alternate reality' or something, isn't it possible that the Island is the 'objective reality' and the rest of the world is 'something else', like in the Matrix? I know, cheezy analogy, but it could be something like that. Or it really could just be a sonar beacon... that would be lame.

Anyone gonna watch/has watched the clip show thats on tonight?

Regarding Podcasts, these are the Lost podcasts I like listening to:

Jay and Jack: Theres is the first one out after an episode so I usually listen to them after I watch the show.

The Lost Podcast with Pheretic and Pandemic: Just recently found this podcast. These guys are not that versed on some Lost knowledge but theres still some good theory's coming out of this podcast. They have good chemistry and are entertaining. Sound quality is not that good...though it doesn't disturb me.

LOSTCasts: One of the best lost podcasts out there (after the LLD). Sometimes to heavy on book references for my taste.

Dharmalars: Just started listening to this one too. Two guys talking about Lost and there own life. Seems very natural. Theres also a cool segment about the music of every episode.

The Lost Initiative: The only all-girl Lost podcast I know of. It's very entertaining and fun to listen too. They're fairly new but way better then a lot of the crappy podcasts out there.

The Lost Lowdown: The best Lost podcast I know of. 'nuff said.

The Lost Podcastaways: Not much structure, weird but entertaining to listen to.

There was another all girl podcast that did not last too long called the LOST CHICKS. They started with 4 women, by week 2, two had dropped out. The problem was ibe if them eas from Germany and she had a very difficult accent. As someone a lot wiser than me said one time, that a person with thick accent usually knows one more language they you.

The first podcast I listened to was the one from Channel 4 in Britain and listened during the summer hiatus between season 2 and season 3. Extraordinarily entertaining and very professionally done. I was happy that they went along with Sky-one.

I do like Jay and Jack and frequent their forum.


I will say that each podcast has something of interest. However the LOWDOWN is extraordinarily interesting and detail. It is also the most adult and intellectual.

I've only listened to Jay and Jack and Generally Speaking about this episode so far. someone phoned in and claimed a continuity error with Charlie when it turns out he is a good swimmer but couldn't swim in season 1 when the women was drowning. This is not the case - he didn't say "I can't swim" he said "I don't swim"... not the same thing!

I think this shows a huge character arc for Charlie, there's no way he would have been willing to make this sacrifice in season 1.


"Bruce said...

My thoughts exactly. I know some people love the show, but he sounds like the worst kind of radio DJ to me. STOP SHOUTING and I might listen.
Oh and GSPN is great for comedy value. How can you not love Cliffanie.

which is kind of the official UK one, and has the editor of the Lost magazine, as well as Iain Lee and Geeky Tom. It's very funny and they tell callers if their theories are rubbish.
Look forward to the live podcast, if I worked it out correctly it'll be starting at 10pm UK time, so I can join you!

The lost comm podcast is a bit on the annoying side, david is just far too excitable and trys too hard to be funny.

I like cliff from GSPN but his wife sucks all the energy from the show and is simply the worst. What a megabitch. The constant begging for money in his quest to get others to pay for his hobby got tiresome. Now he has a gspn recording studio and a fan purchased laptop from all of the suckers that helped him. Even worse he has like 10 different podcasts, even got his terrible wife and is kids doing thier ownb Such a shame...

Anonymous MekareQ said...

I wish I could be on your live podcast... but I'm not in town at that time :-(

One more stupid theory from crazy Mek:

Locke is the reason that Ben is coming early and screwing up Jack's plans. Locke gave the tape to Sawyer, so Ben didn't have the tape, and assumed the worst. That made him bump up his timeline. If it hadn't been for Locke, they might have been able to go with their plan A. Stupid freakin' Locke, everything he does is wrong.

If I was on the island, I would find some heroine and give it to Charlie, just working under the auspices that if Locke wanted him to quit, it would be better for everyone involved if he did not.

By the way, I did not like Karl or Alex initially, but they are starting to grow on me. How pissed was Ben? Seriously? Woah. Plus the blood on Alex's hands, the symbolism I'm seeing is that Locke's "accident" is somehow Alex's fault.

I thought this episode was great, but the big problem I had with it was that I was prepared if Charlie was going to die, although that would've been too predictable (lol, since we "knew"), but the thing is, the episode ended BEFORE we even see Charlie hit the switch! I mean when Charlie yells "I'm alive" when he makes it, I'm thinking, well of course he is, he's supposed to drown AFTER he hits the switch.
So a bit anticlimactic that ending.

I think the episode should have ended with EITHER the predicted death or a twist of fate in him living, i wouldn't mind either way, but it definitely should have ended AFTER he hit the switch!

Well I'll be joining the live show to talk about this problem some more.

I liked the episode- someone commented that it sorta felt like the start of the finale, and I agree. Lot of stuff going on.

The reveal of the looking glass caught me off-guard- in a good way. Underwater wormhole? Not so sure, but this does seem to be an important station.

Ben is really acting like a leader who is just desparate to maintain control. Between Locke, Alex and Karl, Juliette, and Richard, he may not be able to hold on.

Interesting things Darlton (who were narrating) said in the clip show last night:

The magic box is a metaphor, the whole island is a magic box.

The Others have about 30 or 40 people.

Talking about Naomi and her boat rescuing the Losties:

Damon: Well thats never gonna happen.

Carlton: Well so you say.

Damon: If they get rescued the shows over.

Also they seemed to put a big emphasis on the fact that Locke and Jack are on opposing sides in the sense that Locke doesn't want to get of the island and he's destroying all the things that can do that and Jack's main goal is to get all the Losties off the island.

SPOILER ALERT

I read on Doc Jensen's column that Darlton said that there will be a showdown between Locke and Jack in the finale. This makes sense, since Jack is bringing the Losties to the radio tower so they can contact Naomi's boat, I don't think Locke will like that! :)

END OF SPOILER


if you compare "Greatest Hits" to last seasons "Three Minutes" it seems like we're ahead of the game story wise. The cliff hanger in "Three Minutes" is Desmond's boat on the shore, all the Losties are together at Ana Lulu's and Libbys funeral, Sayid hasn't gone on the boat yet, Michael hasn't started to lead Jack, Kate, Sawyer and Hurley to the Others yet. But in Greatest Hits everyone is already splitting up into groups that are gonna be the different storylines in the finale.

Also wouldn't it be cool if the finale started from the perspective of those two women in The Looking Glass just before Charlie swam through the moon pool. Kinda like Desmond in the season 2 premiere. I'm predicting that's how the finale will start. We'll see Wednesday!

I think it's possible that Desmond didn't see the people inside The Looking Glass in his flashes. If you remember in Catch-22 we saw how Desmond's flashes work and he just sees bits and pieces, for example he saw a person hanging in a tree but he didn't know who it was. The could be a lot of explanations maybe when Charlie actually flicks the switch those women are not there for some reason. You can't really know until you see it.

I think Charlie was glad he was alive for that moment because he thought the hatch was flooded and it was not.

oh plus i vote 2 or even 3 live podcasts in a row for the 2hr finale. 6.5 hrs on Man from Tallahassee, so makes sense if the finale is as interesting to go that long.

Had a great time for the random moments I was able to listen live. Really looking forward to listening to the whole thing. Had a lot of trouble with Talkshoe again, ended up having to boot into XP on my Mac and download the PC version, worked fine like that. For some reason Safari doesn't want to seem to load the chat and stream window.

Completely changing gears...anyone playin' the Halo 3 beta? My gamertag is mittelos (seriously). Haven't been sucked into a game this much in a long, long time. I may need help.

Hey guys... thanks for the podcast...

Your Ben & Jacob discussion made me think of a question that I can't remember anyone else asking:

If Ben told Juliet that Jacob would cure her sister's cancer, why couldn't he get Jacob to cure his spinal cancer?

Even if it was a lie, and the sister's cancer never returned, Juliet should have brought that up when they were hatching the whole plot to convince Jack to do the surgery.

I have a theory that Jacob is exacting some punishmment on Ben (the cancer and the pregnancy problems), but Juliet should have said something because from her point of view, Jacob is the cancer-curer and it's much easier than an elaborate plan to maybe convince someone to do a risky surgery (which might turn into an operating table hostage situation).

Joe said - If Ben told Juliet that Jacob would cure her sister's cancer, why couldn't he get Jacob to cure his spinal cancer?

------------------------
Good point, but it was addressed in "One of Us." That was the reason that Juliet was upset with Ben when she found out he had cancer. She did not believed her sister's cancer was really cured. Ben took her to Mikhail's Flame station to show he that Juliet's sister Rachael was ok and her hair grew back and the baby was born.

I have an idea for a summer show - it is a tough one.

Vapor characters

Speculation on those characters that are mentioned on LOST but we have yet to see

i just listened to the official Lost podcast and what a boring podcast. they never give us any information- like how Charlie said he couldn't swim in season one but swam in this episode. they have the worst podcasts

Another hiatus podcast idea - A trip to Boone Hill. How about a retrospective of all those who died on LOST

I just want to give 1 tiny constructive critism, but I will start by saying I love your podcasts. I prefer the podcasts when you go scene by scene rather than just questions & answer the whole episode. But I still love you guys either way.

In regards to why the Others can no longer contact the outside world: Maybe the purple sky and hatch implosion was a modified EMP pulse and knocked out any online commincations equipment. The station did work with electromagnatism. And since the sat-phone was not on the island when the pulse went off it would still work if not for the Looking Glass blocking the signal.

My random question: What ever happened with the Numbers? Why don't we see them anymore?

Another Hiatus idea:
Rewatch old episodes (maybe 3 at time) and rediscuss in light of more recent revelations. That way we could all rewatch seasons 1 & 2 together to pass the time.

heroes finale totally sucked, really dropped the ball.

I agree with lara, I like the scene by scene format the best. Nothing wrong with the "open" format either, just like scene by scene a little better.

Anon- missed the Heroes finale, which is I guess a good thing since I need to catch up on pretty much the entire season. The times I've watched the show I've really enjoyed it; I've heard that a lot of folks dropped Lost and picked up Heroes, which is fine, but I just don't think the writing and storytelling of Lost is matched by Heroes, and I'm not sure it will be matched for quite some time.

Anyone who has a video iPod may want to check out a brand new iPod game, LOST! I've only seen a few screenshots and a brief description, but it looks like it may be half-way entertaining. I plan on giving it a shot. Maybe I'll do a review? You apparently control Jack on like 20-something missions around the island. It's sanctioned by TPTB, so I'm interested to try it. They're also coming out with a console game at some point.

I gotta agree with 420 and lara. I love you guys, but I feel like I'm missing something when you don't do the scene by scene, you guys always catch the good stuff that I miss! But I'll still always listen to the podcast, but yeah, that's my two cents.

Blogger Claude said...

So you guys prefer the "scene by scene" approach, eh? I think you guys just want us to work ourselves to death! :)

Thanks for the feedback, though. We'll keep it in mind...
