LOST Episode 3: “Jughead”

Rating: 7/10

Episode opens on some Pacific island town. Penny’s having a baby on Desmond’s boat. Flash forward, sailing at night, baby (named Charlie, sigh) with Desmond talking about a “special island”, which we learn is England. He’s going to find Faraday’s mother (Eloise Hawking). Penny’s all “my dad is gonna find us”. Desmond’s all “I’ll make it fast.” It’s an OK opening.

Back on the REAL island, the gang is surrounded by what appears to be old school Dharma folks wielding bows and arrows. Locke saves the day doing what he does best. One of the Dharma chicks recognizes Faraday (remember him at the Orchid with Marvin Candle?) Gang heads to “Other Camp” where Richard Alpert is still unaged. He doesn’t recognize John and says, “Oh I thought you were here for your bomb”. Yeah, there’s a A-Bomb on the island.

“LOST” Reviews, Episodes 1 and 2

Posted in LOST on February 19, 2009 by middleofmayhem

Season Five of LOST came after 9 months of being off the air. I had a whole lot of anticipation and when Jan 21’s season premiere came, I was stupid excited.

So, because I know you all want to know, here’s what I think (in recaps):

Episode 1: “Because You Left”
Rating: 6/10
So, the Oceanic 6 left the island. John Locke had told them not to. They left. The Island “moved”. Season 4 showed the Oceanic 6 going kinda nutty over the course of 3 years. Now, John’s dead and Ben tells Jack that they all “have to go back” to the island with John’s dead body. Ok, here we go:

This episode opens on Marvin Candle way back when. Music playing during montage like they’ve done too many times already (Desmond, Juliet, etc). Shit goes down in the Orchid station and some guy gets hurt. They discovered the “frozen donkey wheel”. Marvin goes off on a way-too-convenient diatribe to some random cave worker: “This energy is going to allow us to manipulate time!” Oh, and then Daniel Faraday is there for the WTF opening.
