Is anybody else still watching this? I know they were off for a few weeks over the holidays, but it's still going strong, in my opinion.

Last night's episode featuring Boone and Shannon was enlightening. When Boone heard his sister screaming that she was tied up, I automatically assumed it was a dream, but then it kept going and going so long. They then had me convinced it was not a dream and she was really dead. A really well done piece.


I am still hooked on this show.


The wife and I also started watching "Medium" and that has some potential, but nearly as much as "Lost."

This was a packed show for characters as the Koreans branch out a bit, Jack touches base with Charlie, Locke and Kate, Hurley earns a friend, Sayyid gets his mack on, Sawyer shows up in a flashback, Michael recovers his luggage and Locke uses the island's illusions to help Boone get over Shannon. That's a big to-do list.

Hurley continues to be the funniest element, and I still hold that Charlie will be the heart of this show. I am, however, bored with Kate.

Line of the night: "Pee on it!"

I'm starting to get a definite Jake The Snake '91 vibe out of Locke, though. With Boone playing the part of the Ultimate Warrior. The part where I suspected it may have been a dream sequence was when they showed Shannon "dead" but just bleeding, as opposed to what happened to the pilot, who was skinned in about 2.3 seconds.

Non-blood-relations or not, that whole "Boone and Shannon get it on" sequence was a little uneasy.

I started watching "Lost" when they showed the repeats in December (didn't watch it originally), and now I'm hooked.

When they first introduced Shannon and Boone as sister and brother, I thought that was odd....I thought maybe they were lying and were really boyfriend and girlfriend. I guess I was half right.

And I definitley didn't see the Dusty finish coming....I just thought they'd got rid of the most annoying character, and was kind of happy.

I've never watched this show before, but I was home last night with nary a plan, and tuned in.

Awesome.

I only caught the first 45 minutes or so, but already I'm eager for a Season 1 DVD release.

What is the premise of the show? From commercials, it looks to me like a bunch of people stranded on an island, and one by one they get picked off by monsters. Is that it? Can it last more than one season?

I haven't seen every episode, but I believe there's been no monster sighting yet. And I don't remember anyone getting killed by a monster.

At the very end of the ep it almost seemed as if Locke was suggesting to Boone that he caused his vision and the visions the others were having. Did anyone else see that?

I missed the beginning of the ep. What's up with this hatch that Boone and Locke found?

Kinda sorta not really.

The short version of the premise is that an airplane has crash-landed on an island way the hell off course from what the original flight plan was, hence the lack of rescue parties. There were approximately 40 survivors that we're learning about one by one through flashbacks.

There is in fact a giant, monsterous McGuffin in the jungle that has yet to actually be seen on camera although Mr. Locke may or may not have seen it face to face already. As far as we know, the only person the "monster" has killed so far is the plane's pilot, although there have been other casualties among the survivors for different reasons (mercy killing, drowning, etc.) But outside of the dream sequence last night (thus it didn't really happen) it's been a while since it's appeared. The show over the last two months has been more about survival, finding ways to see if they can make contact with the outside world, the possible existance of other humans on the island, rogue elements within their camp (in the conniving sense and in the malicious depending on who you mean), etc.

Keep in mind that the show's first 7-8 episodes have only covered a month's worth of story time (last night marked it at 3 weeks since the crash).

The island has strange properties -- it seems to react and direct the survivors about the idlans. The people have suffered illusions involving their personal relationships. Their also appears to be a degree of wish fulfillment. One was taken hostage briefly by a French woman who was stranded on the island 17 years before and related a tale of others and her missing son. One of the survivors of the plane crash, the pregnant Claire, has been taken away by someone named Ethan who pretended to be one of the survivors. The unseen monster has killed a pilot but allowed Locke to live when he was confronted by it.

Like Geemoney, Mrs. Dunk & I started watching just a few weeks ago and we got hooked immediately. The flashbacks into each character have been great and it was cool seeing Sawyer go by in Boone's flashback. We were totally sucked in by Shannon's "death" - Locke definitely holds the key to what's going on but what key is it ? And what the hell is behind the hatch ? Is it just another part of another downed plane from many years earlier ? And was that the Polar Bear in the previews for next week ? Is it next Wednesday yet ?

I think it was a polar bear, it would be the second polar bear sighting as one was killed by Sawyer (ep 2?) with a handgun no less.

Mrs. Brick and I are hooked. Even watch some of the repeats looking for clues we missed the first time.

I hate to be a naysayer, but my "Lost" experience is kinda getting more and more Russo'd up for me. If there's a shocking swerve EVERY FRICKIN' WEEK, don't the swerves eventually stop becoming shocking?

I figured not everything was on the up and up but still got sucked into the whole Boone hallucination. I was also pretty shocked/mildly happy when Shannon "died". Locke is my favorite character on the show so I was good to see he wasn't evil... yet anyway.
I've been hooked since the first episode and certainly can't wait to find out what that hatch leads to as well as when they are actually going to find Ethan and Claire. Next week's episode with Walt and Michael should be interesting as we're presumably going to hear more about Walt's "special" ability to have things work out for him.

If you and Mrs. dunk just started watching a couple weeks back, do you realize Locke was paralyzed when he got on the plane and not paralyzed when it crashed? Yes, there are strange and mystical powers at work here. But like CRZ, I do anticipate something shockingly abnormal to happen so it doesn't jump me out of my chair. The piewife? She hits the ceiling each time something startles the characters, though.

I knew about Locke from listening to the water cooler talk at the office and reading the Lost threads here. Mrs. Dunk had no clue. And she was really freaking out when the monster came after Boone & Shannon last night.

I'm more worried about an X-Files type letdown, where whatever is going on "out there" gets to be too big and unwieldy that the truth can't actually live up to the expectation.

That said I still watch every week with great anticipation.

A freebie news rag in my town has been trashing this show, saying it's a "chic show" and that guys only watch it when they're forced to. I dunno..I don't get that vibe at all. Some of the flashbacks have been sappy soap opera stuff. But it'll be kinda' funny to see how long Jack avoids a full beard and keeps his five o'clock shadow.

The hatch: purpose hasn't been revealed yet. Boone and Locke found it about two episodes ago.

The whole "pee on it" thing had to be an in-joke to Survivor, right?

I noticed (and then forgot) something weird about Locke when he first "saw" the beast a few months ago. I noticed that after facing the beast and supposedly killing a boar, he came back to camp with no new scars or marks on his face. At first, I thought it a prodution screw-up like ESPN's "Playmakers" (when a guy had eye-black on before and after going into the coach's office, but not while he was IN the office) and forgot about it. When Locke asked Boone "why is there no blood on your face", I remembered it and thought "whoa..I should have seen that coming".

My guess it that the island's sort of a Savage Land thing (think: Marvel's Ka-Zar). An unnatural environment created years ago by some weird phenomenon or mad scientist scheme.

Along those lines, I think Walt (the little kid) might be some sort of Franklin Richards freak. Like he's controlling, or is part of the island, but is unaware of it. One of the first visuals in the series was Walt's dog. So I think there's an important connection between Walt, the island, and possibly the dog. Maybe the dog ran into the beast, earlier?

I'm glad someone else feels that same way I do. While, I feel it's a solid show, the shock factor is starting to dwindle for me. It was obvious after about 4 episodes that Boone & Shannon weren't "really" brother & sister.

I love the fact that no matter what the topic or forum, terms like "the Dusty Finish" & "Russo'd" are still used to convey messages. It makes me even more proud to be a wrestling fan. *wipes away single tear of joy*

    I dunno, I don't really think many of them have been real "swerves" This Shannon not dead one is probably the only one where they build up some kind of expectation and then pull the old switcheroo.

    I mean, finding out that the chair was Locke's was unexpected, but it made it more interesting instead of feeling like a cop-out like most wrestling swerves. Everything seems to be leading somewhere, which is good.

I'm gonna argue that Boone DID see the beast. That, like Locke, he "looked into the eyes of this island and saw something beautiful."

Locke was freed from his fears of being a phoney and became a badass, and Boone has been freed of the albatross posing as his sister.

Guess I'll have to wait until someone else sees the beast to see if I'm right.

I am TOTALLY living for the rumored finale that gives away Hurley's past.
