Live Blogging LOST

Just finished watching JERICHO – fantastic episode. But now it’s time for the original mystery drama, here it goes… previously on LOST…

9:05PM Okay, best opening ever…. LOST ROCKS! A song playing at the beginning of the premiere, where have we seen this before, oh right, last season. Of course a CD player, more modern. Henry Gale! Ethan! Goodwin! The best of the Others! A neighbourhood on the Island? How big is this island? Are we even sure it is an island? Henry Gale is clearly the leader of The Others! The actor who plays him must be pretty surprised, this small guest spot turned into this huge role! Can I just mention how much I detest the GAP campaign with Audrey Hepburn…. We’re back… looks like a JACK Flashback.

9:15PM An interesting opening, Jack, Kate and Sawyer are all isolated in seperate ‘traps’. Jack’s in a cell of some sorts, Kate is in a locker room and Sawyer is in a cage. Like most episodes of LOST, I’m well lost and have no idea what’s going on. Each of our three heroes have a bandaid over their arm, blood was definitely taken from them – or something was injected into them (nanobots anyone?). Back to the show, JACK’S GETTING A DIVORCE…

9:24PM “Kate, the next two week’s are going to be very unpleasant…” says Henry Gale… holy FraK! How Creepy is Henry Gale. Please can we have some answers. What is going on here? More importantly, who is the man that Jack’s ex-wife had an affair with. No doubt the final scene of the episode will be the shocker.. it was.. Henry Gale!… Locke!… actually rumour has it that it was Jack’s father….

9:35PM Jack’s Dad has a thing for younger woman…. Sara, Ana Lucia…. Okay, I’ve discovered the truth… Sawyer’s in JURASSIC PARK! Is it just me, or are there an inordinant amount of commercials. I hope that ‘kid’ isn’t a plant… that is just way too obvious, could Sawyer be that dumb.. possibly.

9:46PM Jack’s a little crazy no? He opened the door? Are they underwater? Remember that shark from season one…. I hope we get some answers this episode, of course with 10 minutes left, I’m doubtful. Once again, I’ll be maddenly frustrated all season long! A lot of commercials about THE NINE…. I’ve seen the pilot, it’s definitely worth sticking around for. Finally, back to the show…

9:55PM How smart am I? They are underwater… a new hatch… the ‘hydra’

10:01PM Okay as the camera panned out on Jack, I definitely noticed a double… someone was definitely looking through a glass window, observing. Henry’s real name is Ben, and Juliette…. what is going on? Sadly, another episode with no answers….. damn. But I’m a sucker, it’s too late, I’ll be back next week. Same Bat Time, Same Bat Channel.

    OH MAN. Great opening to one of the worst LOST episodes in recent memory. How could it be possible to butcher a season premiere like that? Let me guess…Everyone is going to post here saying I am sooo wrong and that it was wicked. Prove me wrong…They could have summed up what we learned tonight in 2 minutes…Here’s to another tedious, annoying season…

  • I have to agree with you… the first few minutes, brilliant…. the rest of the episode, not so much. I’m actually more convinced then ever that LOST should be watched on DVD to avoid frustration. The episodes are essentially chapters in a very long story – but in essence, nothing much happened this episode. We learned there is another hatch, an underwater one – no surprise to anyone who remembers the season 1 shark. Additionally, Jack got divorced, we knew that. Oh yeah, and Henry Gale’s name isn’t really Henry Gale… shocker! That said, I’ll be watching the show next week – and you know what ‘theTVaddictaddict’ I bet you will be too!

    We learned where the polar bears came from.
    We learned what drove Jack’s father over the edge.
    We learned where the Others live.
    We learned the Others definitely have a connection to the outside world.
    We learned that the Others ARE infact the remnants of Dharma, but that things are much different now then they used to be.

    How many answers do you want out of each ep?

    We learned where the polar bears came from.
    > You’re right. I can sleep easier tonight.

    We learned what drove Jack’s father over the edge.
    > OMG. That wasn’t really neeewww information. Sure, we learned what happened, but it wasn’t like we learned anything new to progress the storyline ON THE ISLAND

    We learned where the Others live.
    > We’ve always known they are somewhere secluded on the island. We finally saw their homes. I admit, that was kind of cool.

    We learned the Others definitely have a connection to the outside world.
    > We’ve clearly known that for a longggggg time

    We learned that the Others ARE infact the remnants of Dharma, but that things are much different now then they used to be.
    > Same as above

    How many answers do you want out of each ep?
    > It’s not that I want answers, I want a story that progresses each episode. Nothing actually HAPPENED this episode. We got some plot details, backstories, etc, but nothing actually happened. That’s the problem with this show. Don’t get me wrong, I am intrigued by the secrets of the island, but this show exemplifies everything that is wrong with television – big ratings, cliffhangers, hot babes, big budget’s are the key to success these days. LOST has those all, but unfortunately lacks the glue to bind them all together. It says something about a show when the best part from week to week are the last two minutes (which sucked this episode) and the previews for next week.

    I love how nitpicky you are with everything, addictaddict. You claim to hate this show but you certainly do have a lot to say about it (instead of, I don’t know, NOT watching it maybe).

    I have to say that this seasons premiere was much better than last season in the fact that it seemed to move at a somewhat faster pace. Sure we don’t get a lot of significant answers, but that’s part of the shows appeal. It’s like a big guessing game. I guess you just have to like complex mysteries and must possess enough patience to bear with the show.

    Sam,

    It’s because I genuinely WANT to love this show. Season one rocked. I watched it on DVD, so that could have been why. I watch it because I want answers like everyone else. It’s just frustrating every single week.

    hey all,

    first time on this site. first time watching the show “real time” and not on dvd. i much prefer the dvd watches. it seemed like there was a commercial every 5 minutes and that bothered the heck out of me. i enjoyed the episode alright, but it wasn’t my favorite. two things that stuck out to me:

    1. an earthquake happens and all the residents go outside and…”look up in the air?” what? who stares into the sky after an earthquake. then, several long seconds later the sound of a plane occurs and the site of the plane being torn apart appears. although, i think ben/henry looked up first and they may have all followed his cue, but still it seemed out of place.

    2. ben/henry uses a french press coffee pot during kate’s breakfast. for those who have every used a french press, it doesn’t push down that easy and also, it pushes down way farther than that because you are separating all the water from the coffee grounds. (this one is just stupid and nitpicky – but it really stuck out for some reason…hehe) oh, and if you’ve never used a french press for coffee…you really should try it- it’s amazing.

    hehe…can’t wait for next week.
