Lost (spoilers)

So there's plenty of us hanging out in the Rewatch thread who are big fans of the show, and I thought maybe we could use our own thread so that we don't spoil anyone who maybe hasn't seen it yet and is finally planning on watching it for the first time.

I'm watching S2E1 right now.  I love the opening with Desmond going through his morning ritual.  I remember seeing this for the first time back then and wondering "wth is going on here??????"

And also, Jack's ex Sarah is Claire in Modern Family.  It's weird seeing her in this.  She looks *so* different.

    Such a great moment among so many great character moments in this show. I'm also still consistently surprised just how many recognizable actors and actresses were in this show when I go back and re-watch older episodes. 

    I enjoyed the old Grantland Lost articles (now The Ringer). They even named The Constant their top TV show of all time: https://www.theringer.com/tv/2018/7/30/17627614/best-tv-episodes-of-the-21st-century-explained

    Another older article I really enjoyed (even if it's from Andy Greenwald :-p ): http://grantland.com/hollywood-prospectus/lost-legacy-ten-year-anniversary-abc/

    Alan Sepinwall's reviews are another good read if doing a re-watch. This person conveniently linked to all of them (looks like the links to the last few episodes don't work though, once he switched to hitfix):

    If you go to the video on YouTube, click 'share', then copy the link that they provide, then paste that into the comment field here, it'll actually let the vid show up in your comment. :smile:  I love this scene - it's probably one of my favorite in all of tv.  The Constant is absolutely their best episode, next to the two-part premiere.

    This is about when I started to really get into season 2.  I loved the mysterious and scientific aspect of the show and all of this backstory on how this all came to be.  I think this is about when all of the show's online rpg's started to really take off.

    Has everyone seen this?  I'm not sure when or how it was originally released, but I didn't see it until it popped up on Youtube years after the series ended.

    Also, while looking for that ^  I came across this which I hadn't seen before - pretty funny!

    Thanks for linking to that Greenwald article, it's a really thoughtful reflection on the series

    On the other thread a couple people mentioned really not liking the Kate character. Early on I thought she was a really good character (just watched "Tabula Rasa" which is her first "flashback" episode and I thought it is a strong episode), but even Evangeline Lilly was really frustrated with the direction the writers ended up taking her character (ie making her key trait as being part of the Jack-Sawyer-Kate love triangle:

    I don't know if anyone was into this, but I found it this morning and it brought back a lot of memories.

    I haven't seen this in years!  I love that they revisited what the whole 'operation' would look like with Hurley in charge.

    Omg, I remember watching this on finale night.  That was an emotional evening, but so funny.  :smile:

    Caught up with the Storm of Spoiler rewatch through this week (watched Walkabout and White Rabbit) - season 1 is so f-ing good guys! I remember seeing Walkabout the first time and the Locke twist being such a great reveal. Locke is one of the all time great tv characters IMO.

    And while some are not fans of where the Jack/Christian stuff went, I thought White Rabbit was a really nice introduction to that storyline and Matthew Fox really hit the emotional notes spot on. Let the many many many daddy issues (seriously, look at them all!) on Lost begin!

    LIVE TOGETHER OR DIE ALONE!

  • Love it. Somewhere between Lost and Band of Brothers is where I began to appreciate quality tv. First podcast, first online tv forum. 

    I find myself self wondering what LOST could have been if they didn’t need to do 24 episodes a season. Just get the story out, do it well, and move on. I could watch Lost over and over.

  • And yes, The Constant is probably the singular episode that comes closest to encapsulating everything I love about sci fi since I saw “City on the Edge of Forever.” I was hooked from the pilot (one of the best pilots ever), but once the island moved, I fell in love. 

    My wife and I visited some of the locations in Hawaii. Amazing experience.

    I think "The Leftovers" is probably the answer to that question...

    What was everyone's first "what.........???" moment?  For me, it might have been either Jack seeing hallucinations of his father, or Sayid finding the cable that led from the ocean to the jungle. Aside from the smoke monster, that's when I realized that some weird stuff was going down on the island.

    I can't remember the order of things in the early episodes, but realizing that Locke was in a wheelchair was great.
    MichelleElisa
  • I think it was probably the reveal of Locke in Walkabout. The smoke monster getting the pilot was a head-scratcher, but I assumed they were doing a Jurassic Park rip-off.

    The S2 opener was also an amazing WTF moment. 
    Michelle
  • The thing I remember most is them finding the hatch. That was one of the ultimate wtf is going on moments for me. I was totally in by that point.

  • Was planning on keeping pace with The Storm podcast but goddamn this show is so bingeable and season 1 really holds up. I'm on ep 23 now (Exodus Pt 1) and Ana Lucia was at the airport bar flirting with Jack and I totally forgot she shows up before the Tailies are introduced, good stuff.

    Anyone else still (re)watching?

  • MichelleMichelle California
    I'm still rewatching!  I'm staying on pace with The Storm though.  Trying to experience the week-by-week watch show/listen to pod thing as much as I can.  I might go ahead and just binge this weekend though.  :)

    THE HATCH!!! I don't know, even years later, that anything has caught my imagination like that damn hatch. Finding it, excavating it, opening it. And then...after all that build up-DESMOND. So good. I am doing a rewatch with The Storm podcast and they are just starting the hatch episodes. I am still giddy about it decades, and several re-watch times later.

    Apparently today was Josh Holloway’s birthday.  Shirtless Josh was the first thing to greet me this morning when I opened Facebook.  Not a bad way to start the day. :love: lol

     But yeah, the hatch discovery are some of my favorite eps.  I swear, this show never gets old.

    So, I just watched S2, E1 (Man of Science, Man of Faith) and had a thought.  Jack meets Desmond while running the bleachers at night after being frustrated over Sarah's diagnosis and not being able to save her from being paralyzed.  Desmond asks him why he's out there doing all that running, and Jack tells him about not being able to save his patient (Sarah).  Desmond asks him "but what if you did?" and "but what if you did save her?" (something like that) and later, when they part, he tells Jack "see you in another life, brother".  

    We know that Desmond can time-travel, per the 'Flashes Before Your Eyes' and 'The Constant' episodes.  Is it possible/plausible that the scene of them talking at the stadium the night Jack was running the bleachers actually happened *after* Desmond met Jack on-island?   So, Jack actually *didn't* save Sarah from being paralyzed initially, but then Desmond flashed back, had the conversation with Jack. then somehow enabled Sarah to be able to feel things/wiggle her toes?  He also says to Jack while examining Jack's twisted ankle that night, "you've got to lift it up".  And what did Jack need to do to the stone that was bring back the light in the cave and save the island in the final season?  He had to lift it up and place it back where it belonged in the cave- to allow the river to flow again and bring back life and hope. 

    Just a thought.  We all know that nothing in this show is just a coincidence.

    I love the Down the Hatch podcast!  I've been a big fan of Josh Wigler & Mike Bloom since they did the Lost Lives podcast years ago.

    How are we feeling about this?  They clearly borrow heavily from Lost.  I think it looks intriguing though and I'll probably watch.

    Looks like a silly mash-up of Lost, The Beach, the Matrix and the Hunger Games?
