Not really related, but:
Heh, I'm reading the Rotter's Club by Jonathan Coe, contemporary English writer. It's set in the 70's, and it also has a mention of the Third Policeman as being a good book.

On lost they know the jungle VERY well, I'm watching the new episode and he is pointing out very spacificly were everything happened.  They may be lost on an island but they seem to know every inch of it.

It raises the question of ow big the IoM really is.

But regardless of the size, one'd think that after however many days it has been that they'd have learned the lay of the land on their side pretty well.  Most navigation would be done by landmark recognition and rough orienteering since maps are in short supply.

So I guess Sawyer's going to die this season. Vincent came to him like the lurking shadow of Icy Death that he is.

1.) Vincent is Walt's step-father's dog -> Walt's mom dies, Brian leaves Walt.
2.) Vincent given to Walt -> Walt involved in plane crash, kidnapped by the Others.
3.) Vincent given to Shannon -> Shannon shot by Ana-Lucia.
4.) Vincent returns to camp, to Michael -> Michael kidnapped searching for Walt.
5.) Vincent returns to camp again, snuggles up next to Sawyer -> Sawyer dead?

Sawyer can't die, he's my favorite character!!! In all seriousness though, I think it's just a coincidence. But hey, you never know.

"to get the drop on someone," American slang: to outwit another, usually by making yourself appear weaker in order to lure him/her into a false sense of security.

Well you have to remember, it may seem like 2 years since that ep aired, what with all the breaks and stuff, but in their time, it was around a week or two ago. So they're not going to forget that much. Plus it was a tramatic experience, that should highten the memory a bit. And Jack's smart, he was a doctor, that should add to it as well.

Also, it's implied in the show that Jack has an eidetic memory - remembering the vault combination / the numbers after one recitation, etc. - so it's not that unusual that he'd be able to remember the exact spot where 'the line' is.

Good episode!!! only just watched it. I felt really sad for bernard  frown.

Also, very realistic Australian outback. Aptly named the 'red' centre. a little too green for the Australian outback. But we've definatly established the fact that the LOST folks have no idea what Australia looks like.

so, 5 eps to go till the end of the season. And i can remember where i read it, possibly this thread, saying that someone will be return y end of season. I hope its desmond.

5 eps? I thought there were only four left, which form the finale of this season.

I'm wondering exactly what 'a filler episode' means. I literally have no idea, unless it's a half hour of dancing socks, or some other shit completely unrelated to the show. S.O.S. had nice swathes of character development, humour and tantalising sprinklings of Island mystery. If that's filler, than i'm questioning what you actually think the show is.

Oi Sammy! I'm not dissing the show! Just that episode wasn't as "OMFG!" as the last ones.
But I demand episodes that explain more stuff about the island and what exactly the hell is going on... DEMAND!

I just hate the term 'filler' being applied to every episode that doesn't have one of those "OMFG!" moments. I love the crazy island shit, I really do, it keeps everything all very insane and pretty unpredictable - but it wouldn't have any impact if you didn't care about the characters. That's why you need the quieter episodes, the ones that explore who these people are and why they think and do the things the way they do. I wouldn't give a toss about the show if it were the characters from, I dunno, The O.C. stranded there. I'd say fuck 'em, leave them to be eaten by monsters or raped by polar bears. The reason why I care about Lost is because I care about the characters. So no episode is 'filler' to me.

I have to agree with Faze.

Don't get me wrong, I do care about the characters as much as a sane human being can care for fictional characters of a weekly show, but this Rose & Bernard thing was uninteresting, because they were trying to fill bascially an entire episode with something that could have been told in 5 to 10 minutes.

Also, I thought that Bernard's idea was kinda stupid.   tongue

While I usually agree with SXD, I have to agree with the anti-filler crowd on this issue. I've recently watched (legally) all/most of season 2 via iTunes again, and I've come to the conclusion that certain episodes just rehash certain characteristics of a character (ie, Jack) too often. In particular, I'm thinking of "The Hunting Party," and, to a lesser extent, "The Long Con." Before these episodes aired, we already knew Jack had difficulty dealing with loss and losing, and that Sawyer's "natural state" is that he's an amoral bastard who would swindle his mother if she wasn't dead already. I felt myself getting bored during these flashbacks.

However, I do like the characterization to the survivors when it's something we haven't really seen before. For example, I'm probably in the minority here, but I really like "Fire+Water," because it explains why Charlie feels it's his duty to protect Claire. I liked "Dave" because a) I like Hurley and b) his stay in the mental hospital has never really been addressed before.

"S.O.S," while it covered new characters, didn't really give us anything shocking or interesting to chew on. Yes, the Island heals people. We know that. We get the black/white thing. I just didn't see the whole point to it. Of course, it's good that Rose and Bernard got the spotlight for once.

that took me longer than i expected. i'm not too good with photoshop

One thing about the character development, is that i feel that some of the characters are starting to be more developed in their flashbacks than they were when they first crashed on the island, as if they are trying to add more to the characters than they had originally thought about.

It's not often that I find a show I can really get into, which has no danger of being cancelled and has managed not to disappoint me this far. I try not to come off as over-zealous about it, but fail miserably. But honestly, not one episode has let me down so far. Not one. And that's rare.

"Lost" got just under 16 million people in viewership for last week's episode. This worries me, because I really don't want this show to go the way of "Futurama".

What I think should happen is this: "Desperate Housewives" should replace "Lost" on Wednesdays. "Lost" should then move to 10:00p.m. on Sundays. With all that in mind, "Grey's Anatomy" can move to Sundays at 9:00p.m. This way, "Lost" can get a strong lead-in audience, since "Grey's Anatomy" averages about 20 million viewers.

What do you all think of my idea? Personally, I think it's good, but I seriously doubt that it will ever take place. (But it would be awesome if it did!) ^.^

Eyedol, don't worry. 16 million viewers is still *a lot* of viewers, much higher than what Futurama received. The show's still one of the most critically aclaimed shows on the air, and ABC would be foolish to get rid of it now.

Besides, ratings don't work that way.

Just because a show in the timeslot before has huge ratings doesn't mean that all those viewers will watch the next show also.
