There's No Place Like Home, Parts 1-3: Enhanced Encore

To get everyone ready for next week's LOST Season 5 Premiere (Woohoo!), ABC will be airing an encore performance of the LOST Season 4 Finale tonight, at 8/7c. The three-part episode "There's No Place Like Home" is also enhanced, which means there will be bits of trivia at the bottom of the screen explaining whats going on. There are usually some interesting nuggets to be found, based on previous enhanced episodes, so it a good chance to get caught up and learn something new.

Feel free to discuss the episode and enhanced comments here, but NO SPOILERS for Season 5.

scoutpost said...

Yeah ok I was first, now that that is out of the way, I probably won't be back on here until after LOST airs here, which means you all will probably be in bed. LOL

The time draweth nigh.
Have fun ya'll.

Takes a Village said...

Good one Scoutpost.
There's nobody rotten in Eggtown.

scoutpost said...

Oh and thanks Dennis. Good to hear from you.

TAV- it's amazing that with my super slow computer that I beat you. It must've been close.

scoutpost said...

TAV- except for Kate. LOL

memphish said...

Dennis, Lostpedia compiles transcripts for the enhanced episodes. Do you need your own list or do you trust them?

I'm not planning to watch tonight. The pop-ups tend to annoy me. And I've already re-watched the finale twice on my DVDs. So this is my last Wednesday where Top Chef will be on the top of my viewing schedule. Enjoy if you're watching!

scoutpost said...

I agree memphish, I've already watched on the DVD, I'm not sure the pop ups will add much if anything, but I'm going to record it just in case. Then I can FF as needed.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Yeah I step away for 5 minutes and this is what happens. lol

scoutpost said...

That was a really bad run on sentence. Someone needs to teach me about punctuation. ;)

scoutpost said...

From here on out Sayid'sgirl, you have to be on your toes! No eating, no bathroom breaks, no sleeping!!

Takes a Village said...

Yeah Scoutpost, only seconds.Thanks Dennis,we're going to busy around here.We may even pick up some new friends along the way,if they can keep up with the pack.

Sayid'sgirl said...

scoutpost
You've got that right.
Especially next week.

maven said...

Yeah, Dennis came through again!

I'm hoping we learn something new tonight, but I'm not holding my breath! I did hear there might be a sneak peak tonight, but it's probably one we've already seen through DSA.

Dennis said...

WOW! 14 comments already... that was fast!

Hi everyone!!!!

Dennis said...

memphish said... Dennis, Lostpedia compiles transcripts for the enhanced episodes. Do you need your own list or do you trust them?

I trust Lostpedia :) Maybe someone could post a link here when they are up...

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hi Dennis.

Capcom said...

Oh, thanks for reminding me to tape the popups tonight, Scoutpost! :-o

Sayid'sgirl said...

If were this excited about an enhanced episode,imagine what will be like next week!

maven said...

I know what you mean, Sayid'sgirl! It's not like I've already this episode about 5 times! LOL But it feels like a premiere!

jess4ua said...

YAY!

maven said...

FYI: DarkUFO has a sneak peak that supposedly is this week's DSA video. It's from Episode 2, under Spoiler Section. I did not watch it. I have not gotten an email yet, either.

Hey, Jess! It's gonna be great to see everyone coming by again and meet new people, too!

jess4ua said...

Hey Maven,
Yes. The wait has been terrible! I am really looking forward to this. I was really hoping the ajira stuff was going to be more, but oh well...I probably dont have real time to play anyway, hehehe.

Thrasher76 said...

Not sure I can juggle A.I. and Lost tonight? Thanks to all those on FB last night doing live play by play on the craptastic contestant! Maybe I will forgo A.I. just tonight!

MadAriad said...

YOU ALL EVERYBODY!

Hi! Just getting ready for email and such!

I know I've seen this episode at least 3 time, but I'm still excited!

Happy happy joy joy,
Happy happy joy joy!

M'Ladylis said...

krwl. I'm so excited about Lost tonight !! I have to drop my son off at his fathers,m hope I don't get a ticket on the way home. Do you think the cops will listen to me if I tell them I couldn't miss Lost ??? lol

jess4ua said...

Thrasher,
AI???? Sheeesh! LOL

Thrasher76 said...

I know right?

MadAriad said...

Oops - forgot to check the email box...

maven said...

I'm giving up AI tonight! I'm recording so many things....LOST, Damages....I can't record AI...so bye-bye Simon!

Ellen said...

Hi ya'll!
I finally made it, for the moment. Don't know why it worked out this way, but tonight is so busy....darn!
I'll be watching and lurking as I can. Let's gooooo!!!!!!
xxoo

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hey Jess and Thrasher!
My daughter is going to keep me up on AI.
Also we've been getting winter weather warning interuptions all day here. We're getting on right now. I hope I don't miss much.

Black Swan said...

I don't know why, but it sure seems good to have LOST back on network, even though I've got the DVDs... LOL!

maven said...

There's usually a good recap of AI on EW the next day...FYI.

maven said...

Okay, I think I'll stay away for now until the west coast is done! I know....whine, whine, whine!

memphish said...

I was watching Meet Kevin Johnson Monday night. Why did Ben have Michael sabotage the radio room and the freighter engine, but not the helicopter? Was he just getting sloppy like he did with Desmond's boat?

Sayid'sgirl said...

I'm not sure Ben knew the helicopter was on the freighter. Widmore sent Keamy but I don't think he had anything to do with the Charlotte,Dan and Miles. Abaddon hired Naomi to take them and Frank to the island.

Sayid'sgirl said...

But I guess that's what you mean by getting sloppy. He didn't know about Desmond's boat either.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I skipped the sneak peak. I really wanted to watch it. I know it was a Sayid and Hurley scene. But I'd rather watch in context. For those who watched it. Is it the same one that Dark posted at his site today? This is going to be a really long week.

scoutpost said...

Ok I've been out and recording the show. I am getting ready to go watch, but have any of the pop ups been mind blowing or enlightening? Just wanting a heads up since I may FF, and since it's a lot easier to just watch on DVD. When do the sneak peeks occur?

Ooo! Ben's gettin ready to turn the wheel...look out!

scoutpost said...

You know the look on their (the O6) face when the island disappears is just priceless. I mean who ever expects a piece of land to just disappear?

maven said...

I'm only at the Sun/Mr. Paik scene. Nothing earth shattering....

Thrasher76 said...

My favorite part of the island vanishing is when they are on the life raft and Hurley and Jack have an exchange about it being a miracle. It was priceless.

The S5 previews were pretty good and made we want to turn the wagon wheel and "move" my house to next Wednesday!

memphish said...

Here's the transcript of the pop-ups courtesy of Lostpedia. I haven't read them. Was there anything worth noting?

Dennis said...

Thanks Memphish!

My local ABC affiliate was running wind advisories through the whole show, covering up the enhanced comments!

ARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!

Ange said...

Morning! I didn't find much earth shattering in the enhancements, but I will say in context I really like Doc J's idea even more. It was so good to see those people on my tv again.

Black Swan said...

Hey Thrasher, nice to "see" you around again.. and yeah, give me one of them wagon wheels!! lol!

Dennis, that sucks big time!!

memphish, thanks for the link to Lostpedia's transcript of the pop-ups! (lady links-a-lot is back!!)

Ange, I didn't find much earth-shattering either, but I did notice they said the whispers always mean the others are around... paraphrasing here and should look it up;)

maven said...

Not much to talk about re the enhancements from last night. Although it was a great feeling watching LOST on ABC again (even though I've seen that epi a zillion times without commercials!)

scoutpost said...

morning!
Thrasher I totally agree. We all need a frozen donkey wheel in our basements/garages/attics.

Dennis that really stinks! Fortunately you didn't miss much. Even my husband said this type stuff wasn't much for people like me- what did he mean by that? ;) But we can see how the pop ups would be beneficial for the casual viewer.

Ok- NEED HELP WITH THIS QUESTION
I have some friends who just took up LOST (there's actually a funny story behind it) and have been watching the DVD's since November. They're finishing Season 3 and have this question: When Charlie and Desmond set out to dive down to the Looking Glass to shut of the jamming signal, why didn't they just cut the cable to the Looking Glass that was on the beach? Wouldn't cutting power to it cut off the signal?

I think we talked about this back in the day, but I can't remember. Can anyone answer this off the top of their head? I guess I'll go see if I can look back at some discussion if I can.

scoutpost said...

Oh I forgot- last night I had a bit of a panic attack after going to bed. I was thinking about how excited I was for season 5, etc. when all of a sudden I realized that this time next year will be the beginning of the last season! That kind of freaked me out for a minute. To realize that, in a way, the end is close!

I know, I know, a real "Debbie Downer" moment, but I really just wanted to turn it into a cherish the moment, moment.

Anonymous said...

Scoutpost, If Charlie just cut the cable he'd get fried, and would of never got the call from Penny.;) lol

Capcom said...

Hi everyone!

I hear ya Dennis, my station just kept putting up the dang call letters and such, we didn't even have any weather advisory needed.

I don't know if Ben merely got sloppy about the chopper and boat, it might just be that he can't conceive of everything that is going to occur in the fight, or every angle that will happen with the unexpected. Maybe that's supposed to be a point of so much of his frustration, i.e., that he has to think of, and take care of, everything for Jacob, and he just can't do it all by himself. ??? It is a very big job that he has, when you think about it.

It was awesome watching that FDW scene again, it's very powerful and thought provoking, to say the least. Wow.

Capcom said...

One day at a time, Scoutpost, one day at a time. :o)

But I know, sometimes I wonder how we're going to all stick together as online friends when Lost is over. We'll have to come up with some other format I guess. Maybe we can meet over at Dennis' Fringe blog till that show's over. Hopefully by then JJ will have cooked up something else for us to "work" on. :-D

scoutpost said...

capcom- I know, trying not to be a downer. I kind of laugh at myself for having such a little panic attack. Yeah I think LOST has set the bar so high for me in regards to TV shows, that JJ better have some stuff on the back burner! Fringe will have to do until then. It comes back next week, too doesn't it? Thursday I think? Back to back excitement. I might need a long nap by next Friday.

MadAriad said...

Good Morning!
There are a couple of things I noticed in the pop-ups that I thought were worth mentioning:
1. At one part (Hurley's surprise party), the pop-up said that the whispers are heard on the island when "danger" is near, and then later another pop-up (when Alpert's gang ambushes Keamy's team) said that there are whispers when the Others are about to show up. One could infer that the Others are really dangerous for sure?
2. One of the pop-ups (I forget when) mention that Ben claims that Widmore staged the fake 815, and then it says that Widmore claims that Ben did it. I don't remember that Widmore ever made that claim - am I forgetting something?

So nice to have Lost back on TV!
I was bummed there were no Ajira ads. My local station fortunately ran all their stuff across the top of the screen - That must have been so maddening Dennis!!

lost2010 said...

I only got to watch half. I talked my husband into letting me watch up to the kiss if I'd turn over the t.v. for something he wanted to watch.

Anyway, one of the pop-ups answered one of my questions.

It said that the reason Lapidus couldn't find the freighter was that it moved while they were on the island. That the boat os 90something miles off coast when he left and had moved to 5 miles offcoast when they returned to it.

I remember wondering how close it was there at the end. If it's 5 miles off coast. Maybe (crossing fingers) the wreckage went whereever the island went and Jin can still make it to shore.

Hoping and hoping that Jin's alive. (crossed fingers)

Sayid'sgirl said...

MadAriad
Widmore didn't say Ben planted the wreckage personally. When Capt. Gault was tell Sayid and Desmond about the black box and the plane being found he was inferring that Ben was the one who planted it and that was one of the reasons Widmore was looking for him.

MadAriad said...

SayidsGirl - Aha - thanks!

memphish said...

Sayid's Girl you beat me to the punch on the fake 815 question. Of course, you know that's one of my favorite outstanding questions -- who staged 815?

As for why they didn't just cut the cable to the Looking Glass. 1) They don't have anything that would cut cable that thick; 2) What's to say there isn't an alternative power source like battery backup; and 3) that's not how Desmond saw it.

Black Swan said...

MadAriad, yeah that thing about the whispers are when the Others are around is what I was saying earlier. It's the one thing that stood out to me.

ib4uc said...

Hey everyone. Just checking in. And I have to agree that it was most definately awesome watching Lost on TV last night. Next Wednesday can't get here quick enough!

Erich said...

Wow. It's like the first day of school. Long time no post, but I'm looking forward to hashing (pre-, post-, and everything in between) season five starting next week. It's good to be back!

Amused2bHere said...

I'm also checking in after last night's LOST redux.

and man, am I stoked for next week!!!!

Yowza!

great to see all the familiar faces ;-)

Capcom said...

That's what I got about the freckage last night, that Ben planted it and Widmore sent the freighter, and Gault/Widmore were trying to figure out how Ben did it. Or at least Gault in speaking for Widmore said that. But I could be totally wrong.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Hey everyone!

I have the enhanced finale on DVR - I just got my season 4 DVDs this week, and Mr. Mel and I are going to watch that entire season through before we check out that finale. I finally suckered him in! :)

Re-watching the first two season 4episodes last night, I was struck by how spacy Dan seems. He would NOT be instilling me with confidence as a rescuer, even before I knew I wasn't his "primary objective."

A co-worker and I were talking today and we were thinking that it would be fun between seasons 5 and 6 to rewatch all of the episodes, and write down ALL of the questions. Then, as each question get answered, we cross it off. That way, we'll go into season 6 with a complete list of unanswered questions, just to see how many are finally wrapped up!

Sayid'sgirl said...

capcom
They haven't really answered who planted the wreckage. Ben and Tom told Michael it was Widmore and Capt. Gault told Sayid and Desomond it was Ben. I haven't decided who really planted the wreckage.
Melissa
I'm hoping alot of question will be answered this season. I've read in several places that they are going to open the flood gates this season. Hope that's true.

Sayid'sgirl said...

OT
There was a plane that had to crash land in the Hudson river they think due to a bird strke. There was water craft in the area that went to the plane to help. They haven't said but I think everyone is alright. They plane didn't submerge and the passengers got out on the wing. At first they said there were 23 passengers but are not sure now.

scoutpost said...

Wow! That's scary, but I've heard birds can cause a lot of problems for planes.

If it's true that they open the flood gates this season, then I better go back and watch season 4 one more time. Last night after watching the finale I kind of had that feeling like I was getting ready to take an exam and I hadn't studied enough. :0

maven said...

I hope Claire's bird wasn't one of them.

Capcom said...

It looks like they got all the passengers and crew out of that plane in the river. The newscasters were relaying that the crew did a great job of handling the situation, especially the "landing" on the water.

Right Sayidsgirl, I'm just thinking that from what I saw again this week, that I'm going to lay bets on Ben planting the freckage and Widmore trying to figure out how, etc., like Gault said. They both had a vested interest in keeping outsiders away, but I like the idea of Ben and Jacob trying to foil Widmore's plans by planting the fake. Even if I'm wrong, I'll get some peace of mind until I find out, heheh.

maven said...

What a good ending for the plane story. I heard the pilot did a fantastic job and all the passengers kept their cool in getting out.

It would make sense that it was Ben who planted the fake, even if they both wanted to keep outsiders away. But Ben had a plus in that he was on the island and knew how to get on and off and where it was. He would know by putting the fake in the Sunda Trench it would really throw outsiders off the scent and far away.

2costa said...

ive always suspected that frank was working for Ben, not asking about the pilot ever on the island among other things. I noticed last night that not only did frank not notice the bullet holes when they were on the ground, but was later sure there was an exit hole for the bullet, but the shadiest thing he did was tell jack to just put enough gas to get them back to the island like he knew exactly when the freighter was gonna blow up and jusrt long enough to get sun nice and pissed at mr. widmore. He also seemed to stronglt sugest that someone(sawyer) should jump off the chopper. I don't think its a cooincidence that frank is the only freighty to make it off the island or not get killed...

Sayid'sgirl said...

capcom
Oh ok. I see. I still haven't decided who planted the fake wreckage. But you have a strong argument for it being Ben.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hi 2costa
Glad to see you back.

lost2010 said...

I'm sort of seeing it as almost a new series. The redemption story was the first 3 seasons. And the last 3 are sort of something else. So the finale sort of set the stage for what that something else is. . .okay, stopping rambling now.

maven said...

Hi, 2costa! (Are you still on FB?)

lost2010 said...

2costa - I noticed that too on the rewatch. . .the whole "I'd feel better if we were 200 lbs lighter" seemed awful pointed. And the popup pointed out about that time that Hurley felt guilty about the dock collapse because of his weight. . .you do sort of wonder if Frank was engaging in a little manipulation Ben-style there.

Capcom said...

Hey 2costa, welcome back! What you said reminded me of the other thing that solidified (to an extent anyway) my Ben/freckage theory: it was the way that Frank told Michael how he told Widmore about his disbelief that it was his pilot friend in the feckage, and Wid believed Frank and brought him along. Of course, it could also be the case that Wid was saying, "Yeah, sure it's fake Frankie, lets go find it, winkwink!" :-B

LOL Lost2010. I wonder if the message of seasons 4-6 will be to show *how* to bring about your own rebirth/redemption via truly giving up yourself for the greater good? So far, most of our Losties were doing things just for their own benefit (even Jack IMO, who had to fix people becuase it made him feel relevent). S1-3 showed them how life could be different for their sorry selves. Now, by giving up their cushy life back in The World, they might learn to make a great sacrifice that's truly outside themselves, by making the decision to go back to the island to put things right.

At least, I hope that it's going to be something like that. I will be very disappointed if the final seasons are only about fighting and killing and blowing things up.

maven said...

There's a new DSA email. Sneak peak available. I watched it...not too spoilery IMHO.

Black Swan said...

So, since the DSA is a sneak peek is it considered spoiler and we can't discuss it here?

Just for fun I googled Bharosa, this week's password.. hmmm

then I googled what Hurley says at the very end!!!!

maven said...

Does anyone know for sure when the LOST panel is at Comic Con this year?

scoutpost said...

DarkUfo is talking LFL again. I can't remember if I signed up. I hope I did, and if I did, I hope I picked a better team than last time.

Sayid'sgirl said...

According to G-Man's opinion so far I've picked a medium team. I guess that's better than a bad team.

Dennis said...

Maven... Comic-Con 2009 is JULY 23 - JULY 26, but they don't usually schedule the panels until a month or so before...

I just checked LostARGs.com, and last years CC started on July 24th, but they didn't announce the final schedule until July 13. There may be rumors before that, but it's way to early to know right now.

scoutpost said...

Thanks Dennis. Someone else told us the same thing.

Well it's official!!!! Maven and I are going to ComicCon. Just purchased my passes.

maven said...

OMG...I can't believe I'm going to Comic Con with Scoutpost! We got our 4-day passes!

Sayid'sgirl said...

You guys are so lucky. You're going to have alot of fun this summer.

Takes a Village said...

Congratulations Maven,and Scoutpost.The Lost pannel will be spectacular I'm sure.

That pilot did everything right yesterday.A happy ending for a change.

maven said...

WARNING: EOnline has a LOST scoop story prominently positioned! Apparently that NY LOST tribute has happened and Episode 3 has been seen by many. It's getting really dangerous out there.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Wow
Thanks maven. I guess I'll stick around here until next where it's safe.

Sayid'sgirl said...

I've been watching season 4 and something struck me. I'm probably way off base but here goes.
When Kate and Jack find Daniel after he bailed out of the helicopter, he said that they were there to rescue them. Maybe he was telling them the truth. Maybe the scientist were there to rescue them with the knowledge of they have of the island. Rescuse doesn't necessarily mean they were going to take them off the island.
I don't know even though the pop ups said Widmore sent them. I just don't buy it. It just doesn't fit for me. Unless Widmore had two agendas. Because I can't see Abaddon picking out Keamy's crew. Anyway that's my wacky theory for the day. :)

memphish said...

Here's my theory Sayid's Girl. Daniel, Miles, Frank and Charlotte were there (and hired by Abaddon working for Widmore) for 2 reasons. First they had to neutralize the gas. For that they needed Daniel primarily, but also a minder for Daniel and for that Charlotte fit the bill.

But the other reason for sending Charlotte, Miles, Daniel and Frank are that they are people who know/suspect too much and so Widmore saw this as a way to rid himself of them. I speculate that Charlotte and Miles are indeed Dharma offspring and that Widmore knows this. I'd even go so far as to speculate that Charlotte has bugged Widmore or Hanso about it in the past which brought her to their attention since she has a life history as recited by Ben which does not include the Island. So Widmore's ultimate plan was for Keamy to snatch Ben and remove him from the Island since for some reason Widmore can't kill Ben and then eliminate everyone on the Island, the 815ers, and as much of the Freighter crew as possible, but especially conspiracy driven Frank and Dharma connected Charlotte and Miles and nutty professor Daniel.

Sayid'sgirl said...

memphish
You think Abaddon is working for Widmore. Would that mean that Widmore wanted Locke on the island? Because Abadddon seemed to be guiding Locke that direction when he was his orderly after the accident. It seemed he was trying to get Locke to follow his destiny.
He also told Locke they would meet again. Which I have a whole other wacky theory about that.
I agree Charlotte is a Dharma offspring but I'm not so sure about Miles.
If Widmore wanted everyone on the island dead then why stop Ben from using the gas? (If he was going to.) Ben would have done his dirty work for him. Then all they would have to do is go in with gas masks and get Ben and kill the others safe at the Temple.
But I do see your point that Widmore wouldn't want anyone knowing about the island and would want to get rid of those who do.

maven said...

You know I wonder that if it is true that Abaddon is working for Widmore guiding Locke to the island, there is a good reason. Widmore wanted Ben off the island and in his control for whatever reason their rivalry exists. So Widmore knows that someone else needs to be the chosen leader of the island, and Locke fit that bill. To keep the island "happy" he needs to replace Ben with another chosen leader. Wacky, huh?

Also, I agree that Charlotte is a Dharma child, but I don't see the connection with Miles.

memphish said...

What about the baby in the Chang video Maven? I figure that's Miles. Otherwise I don't see what connection Miles has to the Island, Dharma, anything.

As for Abaddon and Locke, I agree with Maven that getting Locke to the Island is the beginning of the end for Ben so it could easily be orchestrated by Widmore.

maven said...

Memphish: I forgot about that crying baby that was referred to a "he" in the Chang video. And Charlotte and Miles are about the same age. And Miles and Chang are Asian. So I guess the possibility does exist that Miles was a DI child, too. I'm open to anything.

Capcom said...

I'd like to think that Miles will be shown to be a special island baby too (if he is Cheng's kid), otherwise except for his ghostbusting skills, he's just another "my daddy abandoned our family to pursue his science career in a faraway land syndrome" child and would not seem to have any particular reason for being on the island other than to see what his dad abandoned him for. :o)

Takes a Village said...

You do remember birthdays don't you Bigdog, and Thrasher76?
Happy Birthday, you two Loco's.


Miles asked Charlotte "Hmmm,why would I say that"? It sounded to me, that he knew a whole lot more about both of them than he was saying.
I too think he was baby Chang.

memphish said...

Happy Birthday Big Dog and Thrasher.

lost2010 said...

Happy Birthday!

Thrasher76 said...

WOW! I am amazed and honored that you all remembered. This is by far the best place to be online! you know it has been something like 3 years since we all met online finding clues and hunting down Alvar?

Is it Wednesday yet?

Thrasher76 said...

If you remember when Desmond was found the crew went out of the hatch in gas masks, at the time we all thought it was an elaborate ruse, the island was not toxic. But suppose that they gas was used before to kill off everyone and re-start the island.

My theory is that they had to use the gas to kill everyone off, then move the island sending the wheel turner off as well, then the island could in a sense reboot. From what we see of the upcoming season it doesn't look like the move is having good affects on our Losties.

Thrasher76 said...

I should be around these parts the next few days getting ready for Wednesday, talk to you all soon!

maven said...

Happy Birthday to Thrasher and Big Dog!

bigdog said...

Thanks for the birthday wishes! This blog always makes me feel comfortable. Happy Birthday Thrasher and i believe Codysmom daughter also shares the day with us.

Get to spend a day of playoff football, chicken wings, friends and family. followed tomorrow with a day off for Dr. Martin Luther King and then get to watch history in the making with the inauguration of the president. and off course the return of LOST.

all in all rather blessed and thankful.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Happy Birthday!!
Tharasher and Big Dog!!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ok I have to pull a Black Swan. In the next post.

Sayid'sgirl said...

108!!!

Black Swan said...

LOL, Sayid'sgirl, "pull a Black Swan".. congrats on 108!!! Better luck next time to me:)

Happy Birthday to Thrasher and Big Dog!!!! May your day and your whole birthday month be Lostalicous!!

I want something new to happen with Ajira!! Do you think we're missing something?

Capcom said...

Happy Birthday Thrasher and Big Dog! *<|:o)

Lisa said...

Happy Birthday Thrasher and Big Dog! *<}:o) *<]:0) I'd sing, but then you'd all throw tomatoes at me and that could get messy.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Black Swan
I seen it and couldn't resist.
I'd like to see something more with the Ajira site too. But I get the feeling if we haven't seen anything by now we're not going to.

Hey all,

I am still waiting for something to happen with ajira as well. Still trying to get back into the lost is back mind set, it has been so long. On the + side of things though my new iPhone will make it easier to comment during the show :)

Hope every one is well and look forward to chatting with you all again very soon.

Hi Ded
Nice to see you again.
Looking forward to some good discussions on Wednesday night.

MadAriad said...

Happy birthday to the birthday people!

Speaking of iPhones, mine is somewhat functional after it's journey through the washer. All my data is there and the touch-screen it working! Yay! Thanks for the good vibes.

I had actually forgotten about Ajira till I found my boarding pass with some other stuff while cleaning up today. lol

This is really a big week isn't it? MLK day, Obama day, Lost day.... Hey isn't Fringe having a premier too?

I'm so excited!

Black Swan said...

Hi DeDJeZTeR.. it's me, codysmom! I changed my name when the ARG started. Nice to see you're back for Season 5!! I can't wait!

I'm still holding out hope for more at ajiraaiways.com. It doesn't seem to me that they'd make a site like that for a one-time thing!

maven said...

Hoping against hope that Ajira figures into this somehow!

Hi, Ded! We're all most likely in the calm before the storm on Wednesday! LOL We've got a historical inauguration first...I'm sure it will be very moving. And then Fringe is back on Tuesday night, too! What a busy week we'll all have.

That's great news, MadAriad about your iPhone getting better.

DeDJeZTeR said...

Hey, I just noticed that on the abc lost site there are downloads for season 5 and one of them is a wallpaper with Micheal... is he going to be in season five. that would be cool, I really didn't think his story was completed yet.

DeDJeZTeR said...

Oh and codysmom/blackswan... I knew that... I am not that far out of the loop... lol

Zort70 said...

Hello all, I'm back from my trip around Florida.

In case anyone in the UK is wondering the new series of Lost is on on Sunday 25th on Sky 1.

It's a shame I couldn't time the trip to correspond with the first episode ! All I saw on the TV were promo's for series starting soon. Although I did see the 24 premiere while I was there.

Hope everyone is ok and I'm ready for the Tsunami of comments !

Takes a Village said...

Hello all Loco's
Hi Zort,
Enjoy the rest of your trip.
Maven,Sayid'sgirl& Black Swan,
A great week ahead indeed.
Guam is only the first leg of our journey back.We,and the Ajira 10 will need to board another flight to somewhere,on the way baaack.I think the Ajira site will be involved as the story unfolds.
Ded,
It seems like old times around here,as the regulars fly in;(Just like Capistrano).
MadAriad,
Good news about your I-phone.Just wait till we get it back to The Island.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Happy late birthday bigdog and Thrasher!

There are two new articles up at Spoilerfixed - both coverage of the Lost panel at Press Tour. Enjoy!

Mr. Mel and I have been plowing through season 4 in preparation for Wednesday. I think we watched six episodes this weekend!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Also, I just posted the link to the podcast for On the Road, although I figured we'd keep comments going here.

I'm sorry that the book club has been so haphazard this time around. We've had a really hard time scheduling podcasts. I feel terrible!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hello LoCos
Ony 2more days!!
MadAriad I glad your iphone is coming back to life. The drier it get the more life it may get back.
Hey zort
Glad you're enjoying your trip.
Don't worry about Melissa everything has been a little chaotic this hiatus, with the ARG that wasn't and wondering about Ajira.
I'm going to go check out your spoiler fixed articles.

Lisa said...

wooohoooo !!! Two days left ! I have to swap my son with the ex on Wednesday at 8 but luckily it's in town so I will only miss 5 minutes or so. They better not have anything spectacular happen in that first 5 minutes !!

Takes a Village said...

Not to worry Melissa_,
Catching up is hard to do.
Thanx for the articles.
Lisa,
Even if you have to rewind and watch the first 5 or 10 minutes,you'll still see it long before the West Coasties do. Then there is always course correction,
you never know.

Lisa said...

I really need to get a DVR or TiVo it sure would help in times like these !.

lost2010 said...

Thanks for the articles.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Lisa, let me just say that DVR is the best thing that ever happened to my TV. It's so nice to be able to record so easily, and to pause a live show to take the dog out!

maven said...

TWO MORE DAYS!!!!

ML: You've done a wonderful job helming the Book Club. Sorry I pooped out the last few times...life interferes.

I don't know I ever lived before DVRs! Don't we always say that whenever we get a new gizmo? LOL When that phone rings or nature calls...hit the pause and then catch up!

TAV: I'm pretty sure getting to Guam might be the jumping off point for getting back to the island.

Will check out Spoilerfix. I haven't been reading or looking at anything on-line...so much info is out there already. I've made it this far!

Scoutpost and I actually booked our hotel for Comic Con and I keep staring at my email confirmation from Comic Con...we're really going!

Lisa said...

I want to go so badly !!! I wish the plane tickets didn't cost so much !!! How much would it be for me to sleep on the floor of your hotel room if I can find a way to swing the plane tickets ?? Maybe Ajira can drop me off on the way ?? WAAA I want to go too !!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Maven, I'm so jealous about Comic Con! I would love to go. How much were your passes?

There's actually a public radio conference in San Diego this summer, but it's two weeks too early. I was going to try to scam my way there. :)

The stuff at Spoilerfixed is really tame. My favorite tidbit - Richard Alpert does not wear eyeliner!

Capcom said...

Hi All, and especially Ded!

Like I said to Lotteryticket over on the ARGblog, I think that we are probably going to fly towards Guam and then the plane gets sucked into the vortex connected to Sayidsgirl's Pacific vortex and pops out of thin air right over the island. But I'm not gonna bet money on it. :o)

Sayid'sgirl said...

In the SpoilerFixed article.
I agree time travel has been a part of the show from the begining, but I'm not so sure most people seen it coming or are prepared to go on that journey.
Speaking for myself. I am.

maven said...

I'm sure Scoutpost and I could take a third person in our room! LOL 4-day passes are $75.00

Sayid'sgirl said...

The passes sound reasonable. But I'm out here near the East coast and have a daughter I can't leave behind. I know you guys will keep us all updated on what's going on.

lost2010 said...

First tell a good story. If the story's good, I think those of us that didn't sign up for a time travel story will happily continue along the journey. If it becomes an in depth exploration of the concept of time travel. . .hmmmm. . .less appealing.

Capcom said...

As much as I like Scifi Lost2010, I agree. But I get the feeling that TPTB aren't going to do much talk about the time travel, they're probably just going to show what happened, not much about how it happened. that is, sort of leaving that up to our own imaginations however far into it we want to imagine. Like, shooting the theory out there with a freaky ComicCon vid, and then letting us run with it all we want for the show.

maven said...

I think that with TPTB using the first few seasons of the show giving lots of background to the characters and their situations and hangups really invests the viewer into what they're going through. The sci-fi stuff has evolved over the seasons little by little, and, IMHO, will be more acceptable to most viewers.

Lisa said...

I'm on the east coast too and the plane tickets are expensive !! I'm going to keep looking since I know someone now has a room I could bunk in and share the costs with.

scoutpost said...

Heck yes- you can bunk with us! I'm getting really excited too! And it's not for another 6 months! Try Southwest airlines. Do they fly near you? They can have some good fares. Go to Travelocity or something like it and put San Diego in the "fare watcher"- then whenever there's a change in $$ it sends you an email. That's how we watch fares for places we need to go.
And the $75 is for the 4 day pass. You may not even need it. We're hoping the LOST panel will happen again on Saturday, in that case, you could buy a one day pass for about $30-35. Anyway...if you want to go, there's an open invitation from us.

I can't believe there are only 2 more days! It's been so long getting here.... And tomorrow night we have Fringe to help make the time pass faster. :)

scoutpost said...

You know even though time travel will figure prominently into the storyline, TPTB have always tried to make the story character driven. They have always wanted us to care about the characters, so I don't think that they will stray too far down the sci-fi road and leave those behind who care more about the characters than the time travel. At least I hope so. When I watch the DVD's I get excited about what is going on, but it's the characters that I really love- watching them struggle and change.

maven said...

Yeah, we ended up getting the 4-day pass to cover all our bases because we don't know exactly when the Lost panel is yet (although odds are it is Saturday). For an extra $20 we got the 4-day. And we booked 3 nights (July 23-26) coming in on Thursday in case the panel is then.

Amused2bHere said...

Is it Wednesday yet?

tee hee

maven said...

At least the Inauguration will keep us busy tomorrow!

Anonymous said...

Hi All, Is the girl in the movie "Swing Vote" Annie?

Melissa_Lossa said...

Anon - yeah, that is Annie. I just watched her episode on G4 and that was in one of the pop ups!

Thrasher76 said...

Thanks everyone! One more day to go!!

maven said...

I'm getting goosebumps from watching the Inauguration! So proud to be an American. Awesome historical day.

ONE MORE DAY UNTIL LOST! OMG!

Melissa_Lossa said...

I have the inauguration on in my office - it's unreal! What a happy day!

What could make it better? Maybe a new interview with Jorge Garcia over at Spoilerfixed? :)

maven said...

Thanks for Jorge's interview, ML! He has the coolest blog and the best sense of humor!

Melissa_Lossa said...

I know, his blog cracks me up - especially his dog!

lost2010 said...

There is a nice interview with Darlton over on darkufo's front page. . .it didn't appear to be spoilery to me. It talks alot about last season. There's an interesting discussion of why those 6.

maven said...

Oh, I'm so giddy!

scoutpost said...

Can it really be that LOST is back tomorrow?!!!! Oh my gosh I can't wait!

maven said...

I'm going to wake up and there's going to be a new post for a NEW EPISODE! OMG!

Lisa said...

Oh I'm soooo excited, and I just can't stand it !!! Tomorrow night !! Yeahhh I told my son that when I picked him up from his father at 8pm I would be rushing him home and that he would have to do the bed thing himself because I would be much too busy to do it lol They all think I'm nuts !

Zort70 said...

It's WEDNESDAY !!!

Unfortunately I'm not going to see the episode until Sunday, so I'm going to try and stay spoiler free until then.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Happy LOST Day!!!
It's finally here!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Good Luck Zort.
See ya after Sunday.

Black Swan said...

HAPPY LOST DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe it's finally here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

memphish said...

I find it almost incomprehensible that it's FINALLY HERE!

Happy LOST Day!!!!!!

Lisa said...

yeahhhh It's finally LOST DAY !!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait !!

lost2010 said...

Did we really make it? We survived the hiatus?

Happy LOST day!

Takes a Village said...

Happy Lost Day!!!
Words can't describe the emotions we all must be feeling as we begin this special day.
Yesterday was pretty special too.
Zort; beter to wait a few days, than to be spoiled for life. It will be well worth the wait.
Melissa_and David; thanks for the podcast.My favorite part,was at the beginning of the book, where it said that Dean Moriarity,(like Ben)was born on the road.

Lost Day,Yeah!!!!

blueheron13 said...

Happy LOST day!!

Black Swan said...

zort, I feel bad you have to wait EVEN LONGER!! I think my bitter patience has hit it's limit! LOL!

TAV, yes, two special days in a row!

maven said...

OMG...It's really here...it's really LOST DAY. Oh, pure happiness...the long, long wait is over! (Dancing a happy dance.)

It's here for the U.S., but I feel the pain for our British and Aussie TLC pals.

Dennis is probably busy over at Fringe...hoping he'll be giving us the new post soon!

MadAriad said...

HAPPY LOST DAY!!!!!!!!

YAHOOOOOOO!

maven said...

Just wanted to add that we've all gotten through this long hiatus together...making great on-line friends. My TLC family is the best. Now looking forward to all our crazy theories and wild speculations!

Sayid'sgirl said...

Lost Premiere Check List
Quick and easy dinner. check
New notebook check
New pen check
Told family not to talk to be between 8-11 check.

Zort70 said...

Just think of all the fun and entertainment we had during the time Lost was off the air, the fast paced and exciting ARG made the wait seem like it has flown by.

And now without the sarcasm...

It has been a pleasure to wait with you all and here's to a good few weeks of hard core Lost watching and discussions.

MadAriad said...

Lol SayidsGirl!

Babysitter check
Told friends not to call 8-11pm check

memphish said...

Does anyone know for sure whether or not the present day O6 are in 2007 or 2008? And if you do know, which is it?

Capcom said...

Hi LoCos!!! So looking forward to tonight's converstion! You know, when people ask me why I like Lost (especially since it's so hard to follow), I have to say that even though I like the show, it's mostly the fun of decoding the show with you all that's the most fun! And considering how frustrated I got with it in season 4, having you guys to help unravel things gives me patience.

Hang on Zort and all others outside the US! We'll be looking forward to your comments.

Onward and Lostward! :-D

Capcom said...

Memphish, didn't Kate say at the airport to Jack that night he called her that it had been 3 years since they left, meaning 2007? But even if she meant 3 years from right after Christmas when they left, a few more days after they got rescued and it would be 2005, so maybe it's 2008?

Sayid'sgirl said...

I think it's 2007. But I guess I don't really have any proof other than what Kate said.
She said she'd spent the last 3 years trying to forget what happened the day they left. Which in my mind would be 12/(30-31)/2004.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Ajira update
Put in same info as before to get a video.

Sayid'sgirl said...

That may have been a little vague.
Book a flight again using the same info as before and a video pops up.
It's not much but it is new.

Capcom said...

The Lostpedia timeline for post-island activities only says, "2007 or Later".

http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline:Post-Island

lost2010 said...

I had been thinking it was 4 years, but I have no idea where I got that. Maybe just the symmetry that would create. . .Most of the early flashbacks showed us where they were 4 years ago and so I guess I just assumed we were flashing forward to 4 years later. . .

Capcom said...

I figure that there might be a few 2008 days in there somewhere this season, especially from some spoilers that I saw where the *bleeps* are *bleep* and that would take some time. (to borrow your bleeping vernacular Lost2010, heheh) :o)

Eugene said...

Happy Lost day! Thanks for the Ajira update, Sayid's Girl. I was hoping we'd get a little something since this is the day we are cleared for take off.

So tonight we get to go baack!

bigdog said...

Happy Lost Day....

look forward to talking to you all real soon.

Happy Lost Day to all my friends at TLC...
Happy Lost Day to you!!!

scoutpost said...

Ok finally! It took me 4 tries to get that posted!

I thought that the S3 finale and S4 finale part with Jack/Ben in the funeral parlor were some of the latest dated FF's- which were 2007. I don't remember any that took place after that (although my memory could be faulty). I think, based on some of the previews, that the O6 will venture into 2008 this season.

Sayid'sgirl said...

It could possibly be near the end of 2007. It's hard to tell in L.A.
So if it is we could go into early 2008.

New email from Darlton! Just basically apologizing that they've been too busy doing press and working on the show to do a video for us this week. We'll get to see them in the recap show tonight! I still love those guys!

maven said...

Also, there's a new Doc Jensen. Anyone read it for spoilers?

Anonymous said...

Nah. Doc Jensen is a "high profile" one of US. A fan. Just my opinion.

He guess like everyone else.

I'm sticking with PURGATORY until either the show ends or until I'm ON the show!! hahaha

Anonymous said...

Meant to say....

"He guesses...."

NOT "He guess....".

My bad.

maven said...

Anon are you Chucklez3? LOL

Anonymous said...

*gasp*.....

I've been compromised!!!!

scoutpost said...

Ah HA!!!! I suspected it was you, too Chucklez3. You can't fool us! Welcome back.

scoutpost said...

and as for spoilers in Doc Jensen- I've only gotten through the 2nd page and it seems harmless so far (if you've seen the previews and promos).
