A new podcast - Yay! Something to listen to on the commute.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Good for you maven.
Going to download and listen now.

lost2010 said...

I can't seem to get it to download. Am I doing something wrong? Don't you just click on Episode 70?

Takes a Village said...

I think you click, and wait...................................till it starts playing.

So you can't download it and listen to it later? I was thinking I had saved it to my hard drive last time and listened to it when I wasn't online.

Maybe that was another one.

Will said...

Interesting episode, Guge or Goog or however you spell his name really likes to speculate to the nth degree. But he brings up some good questions. I'd completely forgot about Vincent.

The mice and men quote, didn't Flocke say that was after his time? Meaning he's older than 1937. Though I wouldn't be suprised if he turned out to be 1000 years old. Or maybe even older, who knows?

And I thought Ben was evacuated with all non-essential Dharma personnel as a child in '77 along with Ethan and others.

MadAriad said...

I'll try to listen at some point, but might not get to it - Mr. MadAriad and I are becoming first-time homeowners this week! So I have no spare time. In fact, I shouldn't even be here now ......
See you next week!

you should be able to download it from itunes. Is that what you're meaning?

LostIt said...

I was just catching up on Doc Jensens's reacps over on EW and in his recap for "What Kate Does", he says this about the Others' secrecy. I thought it was an interesting way to look at things. Kinda fits in with time travel/paradoxes/etc.

"the Others are prohibited from playing newsman to the castaways because doing so might unduly tamper with them in someway — as if it's absolutely necessary that the castaways either discover stuff on their own, or are denied info that they don't need to know, or don't need to know yet. As if the Others know what the castaways are destined to do or be and are tasked with making sure that nothing they do unduly influences their destiny"

lost2010 said...

If that's true, Juliet was truly devious to know all that time that Sawyer was one of these mysterious candidates and never mention it to him. Or maybe she just got caught up in the day-to-day and when Jack came back she was forced to remember what they're really there for. . .and that she was maybe keeping Sawyer from his destiny. . .

That would be interesting. And make some of her actions a bit more understandable.

lost2010 said...

Or was she a candidate too and thus being kept in the dark to some degree. . .

Thanks SG - I'll try to download it on itunes. That's probably how I did it before. :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

lost2010
You're welcome.
According to some blogs I've read Burke was on the wall and crossed out.

lost2010 said...

But doesn't it seem to you that if she was living among them for 3 years that she'd have picked up some of this - just overhearing it and such? Or are the temple Others completely separate from the barracks Others?

Sayid'sgirl said...

I'm thinking they were separate. Also Ben had said to Locke in The Man From Tallahassee that even though his people love the island and would fight for it not all of them had made the commitment.

lost2010 said...

So, there are levels to being an Other. And Cindy and the 815 children are upper level Others. . .but Juliet wasn't.

Sayid'sgirl said...

That would be my guess since she always wanted to go home.

lost2010 said...

Like the MIB.

Sayid'sgirl said...

You mean as an upper level Other? Maybe. I'm not sure where MIB or even Jacob stand. I'm not sure they are Others.
Which one is lying more to get what they want. They both seem manipulative to me.

lost2010 said...

I meant Juliet wanted to go home - like the MIB wants to go home.

But if wanting to go home rules you out - why are Jack, Sayid, and Hurley still on the list - they not only wanted to go home - they actually did.

I think maybe Jacob and MIB are two sides of the same coin. And maybe they're were both charged with protecting the island - but MIB got sick of it a long time ago and wants to go home. But that's probably just what they want me to think before they spin me around on my ear again. :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Oh I see. The O6 did leave but they all wanted to come back for different reasons except Sayid.
But I'm not sure any of them are commited to protecting the island yet.

I agree with you that Jacob and MIB are two sides of the same coin and MIB got tired. Until they spin us around again like you said. :)

LostIt said...

OT Anyone watching ice dancing on the olympics? Anyone think that if her skin was blue, Meryl Davis would look just like a character in the movie Avatar?

Sayid'sgirl said...

lostit
I never thought of that but you have a point.

LostIt said...

Latest tweet from Carlton Cuse: "In tomorrow night's episode you may see some things that you don't expect"

Duh! Isn't that true of EVERY lost episode?

Happy Lost Day!

Sayid'sgirl said...

When I said I came up a few in the LFL I meant in our group. :)

Zort70 said...

Ooops, just heard the podcast and David called MEL a girl, just to add insult to injury :-)

Sayid'sgirl said...

I know. To be honest I thought MEL was a girl for a long time. Sorry MEL. :)

Just Thinking said...

Congrats Zort on you league standing!

About the Others and what they know- per MIB and Richard's conversation- Richard had no idea that Jacob was collecting candidates. So I would say the leaders of the Temple folk are in a different category as far as knowing what is going on.

I always thought that Jacob was trying to get people to do things- but could not just explain to them why. He always had to tell them they had a choice.

Zort70 said...

Slight spoiler warning for the podcast the name of the episode tonight is contained within.

Takes a Village said...

Happy Lost Day.
I fell like a spinal surgeon out of the sky,(-771 overall)but my team this season is doing so much better than the last two I picked.
I was a bottom feeder last year;
I feel your pain Maven.
The season 6 DVD comes out in August this year, and will once again feature Lost University on Blu-ray.
Time travel was nothing compared to this double decker bus.I am so enjoying the quest.

Zort70 said...

I think David and the Goog have forgotten about the DHARMA station with the same name.

2costa said...

ben was never returned to his dad and dharma before they evacuated on the submarine, as far as i know he was still at the temple

Just Thinking said...

Zort- haven't heard the p cast yet- but I know the name of the episode. Isn't the Dharma one different- same as the news name at LU?

MadAriad said...

Just Thinking - yep - they are similar but different.

Happy LOST day!!

Zort70 said...

True, I think I just heard the same name and put 2 and 2 together to get 8

maven said...

Happy Lost Day!....Cherish each and every one left!

Will said...

2costa, Didn't Widmore have Ben sent back to Dharma after becoming an Other? Wouldn't that mean that his father would have taken Ben off the island when Pierre Chang evacuated the place?

Will said...

Whatever happened to Walt anyway? Are we ever going to find out about his powers, or whatever it was that made birds die and the Others fear him? Or will it just be written off as the Island gave different people different things?

Sayid'sgirl said...

If Roger Linus left the in 1977 I can't see him coming back. Roger may have thought his son was old enough to stay and not be evacuated.
They were still on the island in 1988 when he stole Alex and later when he helped purge the DI and his father.
We haven't been told for sure what happen to Ben in 1977.

Sayid'sgirl said...

...left the island...

2costa said...

the dharma station your thinking of is the lamp post

ChrisL said...

Happy LOST day everyone! See you all tomorrow after viewing. ENJOY!

Sayid'sgirl said...

2cosfa
I think people were trying to avoid spoiling the episode title for people like me who don't want to know it. So they are being vague. :)

TheOtherLisa said...

How to we know that Juliette knew of Sawyer's candidacy? (someone remind me) or do we?

Are we assuming that all Other's knew of the #s and the candidates? Sorry, trying to read quick and haven't listened to pod cast...

Sawyer now wants to go home.... if that ruled people out, we should see him crossed off (unless Jacob was the one doing the crossing off... and that's another "loophole" MIB tied up)?

Have an interesting, unrelated theory on Des---throwing out there--- what if his time in the military prison parrallels his time in the hatch? Is there any possiblity we've already seen his flash sideways?

Hope to get to hear this before the epi tonight..

Sayid'sgirl said...

TOL
We don't know it was just something we were considering last night. Here's where the conversation started.

2costa said...

sorry i thought pointing out the lamp post was being vague...i didn't relate it to anything. i was spoiled by the olp and tv guide. i dont really care about being spoiled for the current weeks episode title, but i know some of you do. The lamp post is not the title this week...

Sayid'sgirl said...

2costa
Oh no what you said was ok. I know you weren't trying to spoil anything. I think I misunderstood your earlier post. :)

Amy Lynn said...

Argh, nobody said NEW POST. :( Oh well. TLC podcasts still not working on iTunes since December.

Just Thinking said...

Your are correct SG- we are sliding around the names.

Been so busy at work I forgot it's Lost Day! Horaay!

No LU 108 grad email yet. They are telling us "You have to wait. You have to be patient." Well, that didn't work out too well last time! :)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Amy Lynn
David said New Post in the Substitute post for the podcast post.

I'm not having any trouble listening at itunes or downloading the podcast from itunes.
I don't know what to tell you that could help you listen.

Amy Lynn said...

Dunno, either. Everything else on my iTunes works fine.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Amy Lynn
Are you wanting to download the podcast or just listen? Are you able to listen from the link on the front page?

Here's the link to the podcast on talkshoe. There are several feeds on this page including itunes maybe you could get itune work for you from that link.

maven said...

I'm counting on you all to fill me in if there's any earth shuttering pop-ups in the repeat.

Scoutpost said...

Well I'm ticked! Our local ABC affiliate here in Phoenix has decided to do local programming tonight in place of the enhanced version of The Substitute. I know it will be online tomorrow, but this just ain't right!! I've contacted them to express my discontent (ha), but if any of ya'll feel called to my cause, here's the email address:

programming@abc15.com

Cheers. See you after tonight's epi airs here on the west coast.

TheOtherLisa said...

So, dunno if anyone is here... rewatching... Sawyer's account of whi he's on the island... looks like he was course corrected to be on the island (flight, raft, helicopter)?

Amy Lynn said...

I know I ask this every week, but is there any way we could get the new post before 5 minutes of 9pm?

Takes a Village said...

Are you trying to course correct
Amy Lynn? :)

Dedjezter said...

Usually no Amy. It was originally set up this way to slow lag, but now it is just normal operations around here and in general keeps things on topic within the comments as to not confuse people who come on later and start reading. : )

Sayid'sgirl said...

Amy Lynn
I think (but not sure) that Melissa puts up the new post right after she gets home from work. She may not be home right now.

Amy Lynn said...

I figured as much... it's just easier for those of us who subscribe to do it before the influx of 100/200/500 comments rather than in the middle of them. Oh, well.

Sayid'sgirl said...

Thanks Ded.

Melissa_Lossa said...

Hi, all - the new post will be up shortly. The reason that I post it close to the episode start is that a lot of people here don't like spoilers, including the episode title or any images. So, I wait until right before the episode starts.

If everyone wants it up earlier, just let me know.

Also, my new job has blogger blocked, so I won't be able to be on during the day anymore. :( If anything needs updating or any issues arise, please send me an e-mail and I'll take care of it ASAP.

Capcom said...

A new post for each ep could actually be set up before the air day, you just have to date and time it for when it should come up and then publish. So it could actually get published before hand, but then timed to post on the front page at any time, e.g., right before the recap version. the ML wouldn't have to be in a rush to get one out, she could just set it up ahead of time, and forget about it and relax.

Capcom said...

Typos be dammed. :-p

Let us know if you need any help, ML. :-)

Sayid'sgirl said...

Hi Melissa
You can do whatever you chose. I'll be good with it. I usually open the new post and scroll quickly to the comments or have my daughter do it for me. :)
I know I'm OCD. lol

Melissa_Lossa said...

capcom - I do actually schedule them ahead of time. :) I just schedule them to go up at 8:50.

maven said...

It seems to work fine the way it is! Don't stress over it, ML! Hope new job is going great!

Kat said...

im readyy for the new ep tonight!!

Melissa_Lossa said...

Speaking of - NEW POST!

Dedjezter said...

Melissa, do they have proxy servers blocked? If not you can link to anything through a good proxy :)
