Geez, I better start posting as soon as the show is over. Now there's comments pertaining to last night's episode, "Jughead" in a post about Josh Holloway being to sexy. While last night's episode may have had a little to do with Sawyer being sexy (it depends who you ask, I guess)it had more to do with Faraday manning-up and Desmond returning looking for Faraday's mother. And as usual, some minds were blown in the process. Who would've that that Gramponymous Maxwell was right when he said "The dude in the army outfit with the name "Joseph" who wanted to cut off Juliet's hand is a Widmore." Sounds like an off-handed joke gone eerily right, to me. Here's what I wanna know:

1. How did Widmore rise to so much power? He appears to be a lowly grunt as of 1954. Does he betray Alpert and the Others to try and use the Island for evil instead of good? Was he banished to the mainland or did he leave voluntarily?

2. Who was Theresa, the girl in a coma? I'm guessing it wasn't actually a coma, but she's stuck shifting between time much like Minkowski. Was she just a random test subject, or did she have some sort of relationship with Faraday? Did she volunteer for the experiments?

3. I still want to know who Faraday's mother is. I think many of us assume it's Ms. Hawkings. If that's the case, is her super-secret math and magnetic labratory in L.A.? Seems weird to me, but I guess there's no real reason to think otherwise.

Any other thoughts, theories or questions?

Jin: Dead or Alive?

There seems to be a division amongst our growing readership. There are those that think Jin, husband of Sun, father of Ji Yeon, is dead and then there are those who think he somehow survived the explosion of the freighter, managed not to drown, and is alive and well somewhere? Now, simply asking the question "is Jin dead?" is a bad idea. Christian Shepard, Charlie and Ana Lucia are all "dead," yet they've all been seen either on or off of the Island. So, I am going to be a little more specific. Did Jin die as a result of the explosion of the freighter? Poll to the top right, leave your reasons in the comments!

Questions & Answers: Because You Left and The Lie

Wow. What a season premiere! It may be too soon to say this, and my view may be skewed since we made such an event of it, but I dare to say that was the best season opener yet! As you can see from the evidence below, we had a nice turnout for the Orange Peel Mouth Premiere party. Everyone followed the "no talking" rule quite nicely, so it goes without saying that by the end of the night we all had a billion questions and theories running through our heads. So let's talk about them. I'll try and get things started with some that I thought of or heard other people talking about. Please add your theories or your own questions to the comments! (And yes, if you haven't seen the new episodes, there are spoilers here. Duh.)

1. Do you think the Faraday who was working on the Orchid station in the opening sequence was the Faraday we know and love who somehow ended up in the past, or do you think at that point he had not traveled through time yet? (That is a hard question to phrase, hopefully you all get what I'm asking.)

2. Do you think Sun's intentions towards Widmore are good or bad? How about Kate? She seems a bit spiteful doesn't she?

3. Did you notice that when Faraday asks if all of the crash survivors are accounted for, Sawyers says that Locke is not, but doesn't mention Claire. Where is she in all of this?

4. Why does Sawyer want a shirt so badly, but doesn't seem to care about his lack of footwear?

5. Miles is Pierre Chang's baby: a possibility or just a racist assumption? Was the baby born on the island? If so, could the unleashed energy be the thing that's messing up all the baby-mamas?

6. What's with the people shooting the flaming arrows at the camp? Don't you think it's weird that they're shooing flaming arrows? The the dude in the jungle has a gun. Was he with Dharma, or maybe someone else? Are the arrow shooters and the gun dudes one in the same?

7. Do you think Ana Lucia pulling Hurley over was an intentional nod to her drunk driving arrest? Wouldn't have been funnier if Jin and Libby were in the back seat? (Though she did say "Libby says hi.")

8. Why is Charlotte the only one with a nosebleed? If they're all traveling, shouldn't they all be getting sick?

9. Ms. Hawkings. Good or bad? Could she be Faradays mother (time travel experts all look alike)? How does Ben get to her so fast?

10. How are the Constants so good?

By the way, I know at the inception of this blog I said that there would be episode recaps, but I'm realizing that it's A.) really hard and B.) pointless, since Lostpedia does a great job of summing everything up. Got a problem with that? Save it for the comments!

If You Weren't There, You Can Still Look at the Photos (Updated! Now with more Chad in Bald Cap!)

So, as expected, the LOST premiere kicked Jonathan Richman's ass (see photographic evidence below). The premiere party was excellent! There were pins! John Locke showed up! The Constants played!
There was great food, provided by Dharma:

Including fish biscuits!
Polar bear and palm tree cupcakes.

The Constants:

The Rules:

Seating was pretty crowded, but some "people" looked pretty comfortable...

More posts later on the actual episode and what it all means.......

Thanks to everyone who came out! More to come later!

Tonight is the Night!

We're trying to think of some good rules for a drinking game. So far we have:

Drink everytime...
-Ben is creepy.
-Sayid is badass.
-somone isn't wearing a shirt.
-you mind is blown.

Any others? We were also going to make some rules of conduct, but they are all basically turning out to be rephrasings of "don't talk during the show!" Anyone have anything to add?

Where Were They Then?: Michael Emerson, AKA Benjamin Linus

In honor of next week's premiere of season five, let's take a look at what our favorite frozen donkey wheel pusher, Benjamin Linus, was up to before LOST. Most clips I found of Micahel Emerson, he was playing a creepy and intense character, similar to his role in LOST. He played a man claiming to be a murderer on The Practice, a corrupt doctor in Saw, and my personal favorite, a child slave trafficker opposite Ice-T on Law & Order: SVU (amongst others). But viewing those clips, I really feel like I'm just watching Benjamin Linus up to his old tricks: lying, manipulating and of course, being creepy. So let's take a look at Mr. Michael Emerson playing a Lawyer in a show starring Whoopi Goldberg called (what else?) Whoopi. I didn't even know this show existed, but at the same time it kind of seems like there would HAVE to be a show starring Whoopi Goldberg called Whoopi. A quick side note: The connections seem to be prevalent off the Island too. It couldn't just be a coincidence that Ben was on Whoopi and Hurley was on Becker, and Whoopi and Danson were once romantically involved, now could it?

Of course, he's still kind of creepy.

It's taken so long to get here, but we're only ONE WEEK away from the premiere of LOST.

Now that you're all listening to the Constants, you have something to keep you going in the next week. Sometimes, though, the last week of waiting is always the WORST. But since all we can think about is LOST (am I right or am I right?) then maybe we can share that burden together. Let's speculate, shall we?

Save it for the comments, but what do YOU think will happen in the first episode?

Sorry about the lack of posting on my part, but you must understand that I've been busy preparing for the season 5 premiere with my new LOST tribute band "the Constants". You can check us out by clicking here! SHAMELESS PROMOTION!

LOST and Bothered.

It's a New Year. At the start of anything new, you should always be thankful for the good things in life. Like all the characters on LOST who are HOT. I think '09 is really going to be Ben's year, so who better to appreciate?

Ben is a man of power. Who doesn't love that (unless he's trying to kill or manipulate you?)? I'm going out on a limb here to say that Ben definitely has some hotness to him, but it might just be best to admire it from a distance.

Fun Ben facts:

  • he kills both his parents (technically he kills his mom by being born) on his birthday
  • he has multiple names/passports including Henry Gale and Dean Moriarty
  • he was born in Portland!
  • young Ben looks like Vince
  • the actor who plays Ben, Michael Emerson, gets his haircut at the same place as J.Cremer in Manhattan

I think what makes Ben so great is that he's such an interesting character. He's constantly playing mind games, beating people up, befriending them, saying things you think have hidden meaning, the list goes on. He's a self-made man! He's super smart! He totally makes the show most of the time. And he creeps me out! Nothing hotter than that.

Where Were They Then?: Jorge Garcia, AKA Hurley

Let's be honest here. There's one person on the Island that everyone loves. Hurley. Sure, he might not be your favorite crash survivor, but what is there not to like? You give me a person that dislikes Hurley, I'll give you someone who doesn't know their ass from a hatch in the ground. Not only is Hurley one of the most likable characters in recent TV history, the actor that plays him seems to be a super-nice dude too. Recently I discovered his blog, where I found out he's quite crafty and seems to be a little cautious of the fame LOST has brought him. It almost pains me to post a video that Mr. Garcia may find embarrassing, but I guess that's the name of the game, isn't it? Plus, as bigger guy that likes to eat cheeseburgers, I can totally appreciate a man that can embrace his size and (presumably) love for meat on a bun. Also, he can sing pretty well too!

Touching Base

So folks, sorry it's been awhile since a post. You know how the holidays are though. That, along with the difficulty of thinking of something worth blogging about without a constant flow of information (or should I say, new episodes) has made the past couple of weeks seem pretty dry. I can't promise that the next couple of weeks won't be the same, but I will say we do have some stuff in store. I'll post a new "Where Were They Then?" sometime tomorrow (Tuesday), we're trying to think of some good polls (suggestions?), and most exciting of all, we've got something in store for the premiere of season 5 on January 21st. I also hear rumors of a Sacramento based, LOST-themed pop sensation that will take the city (country! world!) by storm, but I'll let that come to light all on it's own.
