Please send me your reviews to these episodes and I will post them right here on the blog and cover them in the podcast.  Send them (or any future episodes) to “tlepodcast@gmail.com””

3:15 Left Behind (Kate)
3.16 One of Us (Juliet)
3.17 Catch 22 (Desmond)

Left Behind (Kate)

Cassidy seems smarter than we believe she is. If she was so smart, than how did she get conned by a conman. Somehow I’m starting to believe she’s the one conning Sawyer. Maybe Clementine is not Sawyer’s but she’s conned Sawyer into believing it is, so that she could make money from it.

How does Juliet know it’s going to rain soon? and when it does the smoke monster always appears. There has to be some connection between smokey and water. We see when Ben summons the smoke monster and there seems to be some watery plug. Maybe Ben summoned the monster at that time and it scanned Juliet. There seems to be a pattern with the Smoke monster, first it scans you, like for Locke & Eko, then it comes to get you. Just like in this episode it scanned Juliet, then it came to get her.

One of Us (Juliet)

I found it interesting Juliet showed her ability to manipulate when she was able to take the drugs back to Claire, and standing down Sayid & Sawyer.

Catch 22 (Desmond)

I don’t believe we’ve seen the events that Desmond explained about his religious calling, but it would be nice to see. He even goes to say that he woke up from something he experienced and didn’t know how he got there. Probably from a bout of conscience traveling.

I wonder if the parachutist was Penny, and since Desmond changed the future by saving Charlie, then it changed to Naomi.

LOST, Fringe and FlashForward Thoughts

I haven’t done a post in a while so it’s time to get back in practice.  Just watched the first ever episode of FlashForward which as you know is being sold as the new Lost.  First thoughts were that they (ABC execs) are definitely trying to interest us Lost fans.  We get to see Penny (Sonya Walger) as one of the principal stars and in the trailer for upcoming eps we see sightings of Dom Monagahn which I expected and Cassidy (Kim Dickens) who I like a lot but did not expect to see.  Of course the introduction was very Lostlike with the catastrophe on display.  Here it was people blanking out for 2 minutes (gee if it was 3 minutes they could have tied in a Lost episode title) which caused cars and buses to collide around the world.  Of course in Lost the central catastrophe was the plane crash.  And the title, FlashForward is a reference to the flashforward’s that started occurring during season 3 in Lost ( I am guessing about the same time that Flashforward went into preproduction).

The first half of the show was actually very slow and somewhat pedestrian.  We have seen plenty of police shows and car crashes, and disaster movies, so it was just a bit boring for me.  The second half was better as the characters discussed what happened to them during their individual flashforwards.  I liked that some wanted their future to happen and some dreaded the prospect.  It’s hinted that knowing their future is causing people to influence their behavior now, which could make for some interesting shows to come.  The only characters that really caught my eye were Sonya and the brunette who died in (Iraq?) but who is alive in the future.  Her husband also is an interesting actor.  The others were sorta bland (sorry).  There was also a reference to Prison Break with the bulletin board keeping track of clues thing.

Fringe is made by the producing team behind Lost (except for Damon and Carton of course – they’re busy anyway).  At first I found the show was trying to be creepy for creepy’s sake.  It took almost the entire season to see the underlying story they were getting at.  I found Olivia Dunham to be too cold to be a heroine I could root for, but again by the end of the season I did start to care what happened to her.  What’s best about Fringe is it’s Stephen King like story lines and macabre black humor.  This is exemplified by Walter Bishop (played by LOTR’s John Noble).  He is both strange and strangely hysterically funny and the humor is subtle which I like.  And the “Another Universe” theory on Fringe is very similar to our Lost theory of Over Lapping Timelines.

So bottom line is I am digging Fringe now, looking forward (ha, I made a pun) to Flash Forward and coming up soon is “V” with Elizabeth Mitchell.  I watched “V” when I was in college and this version has that really beautiful woman from Firefly (Morena Baccarin).

I have a theory that we are going to see lots of our favorite characters from past seasons on the final season of Lost.  Somehow they all have gotten jobs on other shows which (hopefully) will allow them to quickly come over to film their Lost cameos.

LOST Season 3 Episodes (11-14) ReWatch

Here are the comments for this week’s episodes:

Enter 77
Par Avion
The Man from Tallahassee
Expose’

Enter 77 (Sayid)

Kate was right when she said “it doesn’t make sense” when talking about Mikail. It would seem he was telling the truth about working the Dharma Initiative by the way he yelled at Sayid, when he shot him and saying he has some agreement. Why would he still be wearing a Dhama Initiative uniform if he wasn’t working for them?

When Sayid said that the horses stirrups were for a shorter person, Ms Klugh doesn’t look shorter. She’s a farily tall woman, from what I can see.

It’s interesting that Mikhail and Bea both want to die. Is it because they know the island will heal them?

When John won his computer chess game, the computer entered into a bonus round. I found the options interesting, especially the pallet drop ‘enter 2-4’. My theory on how the pallet drop happened back in season two is that Hurley in the 70’s must have scheduled it. We know Hurely likes to play chess, as he plays with spirit Mr Eko in the mental hospital. So maybe he made his way to the flame, played a round of chess, and scheduled a pallet drop for himself in 2004.

Coincidentally Enter 77, is the year they all went back when they were part of the Dharma Initiative.

Locke destroys yet another hatch. If this is course correction happening, and the island is attempting to remove anything Dharma, then all is going as planned, through John.

Par Avion (Claire)

Mikhail dropped some very interesting points of information in this episode while being forced to trek alongside Locke, Sayid, Kate and Danielle. Having been approached by a man (maybe Richard Alpert, who even approached Juliet) – he arrived on the island when he was 24 via submarine, which could freely come and go from the island. He confirmed that it was the electromagnetic pulse that had knocked out their sonar beacon, leaving the sub without navigation and unable to leave for fear of never finding the island again, and spat that the Losties could not understand why the Others wouldn’t want to leave. He demonstrated his own deep knowledge of the Losties, called Kate “flawed”, Locke “angry”, Danielle “weak” and Sayid “frightened”, declaring their full names and even going so far as to begin announcing Locke’s former paralysis.

When Mikhail is inspected by Kate due to his sonic fence incident, you can actually see him still breathing. So Mikhail is definitely not dead.

The Man from Tallahassee (Locke)

I can’t believe how unlucky Locke is. Everytime he makes contact with his dad, something bad happens. This time the police interrogate him.

I found it intriguing that Ben made a promise with Jack, but it had conditions, which he knew would not be fulfilled, therefore he wouldn’t be accountable if it didn’t go to plan. Is this how Ben is so crafty and manipulative.

Something interesting that should bring up a good discussion is if the submarine is blown up or not. When Locke goes to the sub to rig it up with C4, we see he is dry. When he comes back from the sub he’s wet. If you look closely to the scene where the sub is supposedly blown up, it seems the dock blew up instead. So the questions begs, did Locke blew up the dock or the sub. My theory is that Locke rigged up the dock to convince everyone the sub has been destroyed, but isn’t. How else did he get wet in the process. I would have thought that entering the sub you would also be dry exiting it. How did he get wet? Did Locke move the sub to a secret location for later use, and swim back to the dock?

Ben mentions the magic box, and you know my theory about how everything happens as a result of it.

Tallahassee has a few connections on the show, Sawyer claims to have come from there, Kate visits there, and the home of the world’s largest electromagnet resides there.

Expose’ (Nikki and Paulo – Who are they, anyway?)

1. We see Billy Dee Williams as the Cobra. No this is not the “cobra” term I was referring to in my previous comments.

Interesting that the Director of Expose’ said they could bring Nikki back, it’s the same thing that the producers of Lost do.

I’ll now have to re-watch the trailer again to see if there are any more inconsistencies with the scene of the crash.

When Paulo was in the pearl, he overheard Ben & Juliet. I can just make out a conversation about Tom covering something up with the plane. If he meant the hatch door on the surface, that would mean Paulo would be trapped inside. And why is Juliet and Ben wearing the tacky clothing?

Just before Nikki was bitten, I could hear what seemed to be Smokey.

2. Hey Jeremy and TLE just some quick thoughts on Expose. I felt like most lost fans that Nikki and Paolo were introduced in a random way. After a while I started to grow used to them as people who had always been there but had separated themselves from the main group because Nikki mainly wanted to find the diamonds. There were some good moments in the episode like seeing Ethan and Paolo hiding the diamonds in the Pearl Station and him overhearing Juliet and Ben discussing their plan and Locke’s things don’t stay buried on this island line. Ultimately I liked this episode as it revealed why Nikki and Paolo were separate from the main survivors and it wrapped up their characters.
