Don't mistake rebuttal for support

Its a famous, iconic line from the show - "Don't mistake coincidence for fate." But do we all interpret it the same way? Clearly not. We discussed it in the episode, and now we want to hear your thoughts! Amanda thinks that Eko is on the side of coincidence, and Locke is still a firm believer in faith. Josh thinks that Locke has shifted gears to thinking of the more rational coincidence, and the priest in Eko makes him a strong believer in fate.

What do YOU think?

The Great Claire Debate

So, by now you've surely noticed that both Josh and I aren't the biggest Claire fans of all time, so if you're a Claire fan, THIS is your chance to stick up for your favorite Lostie. We want you to make us love her - whether its by citing memorable scenes, or just reminding us how darn cute she is sometimes! I can't wait to hear what you guys have to say!

New Episode!

Here it is, the much anticipated 23rd Kate! We experienced some technical difficulties in this episode, but we also had some GREAT discussions that we hope the listeners will get involved with. Just so everyone knows, when you hear "Namaste! .....byyyyyye," the episode is honest-to-goodness over...don't listen to the last ten minutes of nothing x.x

The 23rd Kate

Also, be sure to check out both of the posts above (as promised!) to get in on our discussions from this episode!

Heroes is a Lost Flashfoward!!

If you saw the Heroes season 2 premiere you saw something very important. Apparently, after getting off the island Jack changes his name, learns he can fly, runs for congress, wins in an unethical manner, and then gives up everything to save the World from his exploding brother. What we saw in Through the Looking Glass clearly takes place after these events, but perhaps before the events seen in the Heroes season 2 premiere.

Very interesting. And more to come, I'm surprised Lost producers allowed this kind of a spoiler to be given out.

Three years ago today(September 22) a strange new show aired on ABC. No one knew it then, but in time that show would become a force on network TV, and be obsessively followed by fans. FANS LIKE US!!

Here's Josh's Top 6 Things to do to celebrate the birthday of Lost.

4)Speak using only Lost episode titles. For example, "The Hunting Party Abandoned Everyman for Himself"

8)Annoyingly point out sightings of the numbers to anyone you see. "Look!! 42nd Street!! 42!!!"

15)Jump into the closest body of water with your jeans on, and your shirt off.

16)Watch every single Lost episode back to back. Since there are far more episodes that there are hours in the day, watch them on fast forward. Trust me, crazy Jack looks hilarious on fast forward. When you're done with that, listen to The Lost Flashbacks Podcast, and Email us at

23)Give clever Sawyerish nicknames to everyone you speak to. Remember, they must be funny, and offensive.

42)Quote your favorite Lost character when appropriate. For example, if it's Locke, say, "Don't tell me what I can't do ever!!"

Don't forget to look below this post, and Download Episode 16 of the Lost Flashbacks. Count the amount of times I call Goodwin, "Ethan", it will make you question my sanity.

A little (read: big) teaser for the show tomorrow ;)

Happy Wednesday, everyone! I know we're in the off-season, but Wednesdays still equal Lost for me because of the show =D Here's a little preview of what we'll be discussing tomorrow - and maybe some incentives to come and join us?

-I will be unveiling my very own personal crackpot theory. Oh yeah, its out there...but its pretty interesting as far as I'm concerned...and you know you wanna hear about it!

-One thing that I'd really like to discuss is Locke's crossword puzzle from 2.08 Collision. Unfortunately, I think it might come off a little awkward on air. But wait, I have this blog! So I'll just post my findings here.

So we all see that Locke is working on number 42 (=O!), and that they clue says "Enkidu's friend." Hopefully you also saw that the answer to this clue was Gilgamesh, as Locke was just filling it in when we saw the shot. I don't know about the rest of the world, but I knew little to nothing about that story, so here is what Wikipedia has to say:

The Epic of Gilgamesh

I would love to hear theories on how anyone can relate that to Lost...could Locke (or anyone else) represent Enkidu? Gilgamesh?

In other news, there are several other clues listed, and we also see many of the answers that Locke has already filled out. The hints are:

37. Belgian Port
38. Robbed
40. WWII movie feature : hyph. wd.
42. Enkidu's friend
43. Less brazen

And under the Across column, we can see "...African." I'm assuming that the first clue reads "Macbeth's place," and I'm assuming that that is Inverness. The Belgian port is Ghent, "robbed" is "ransacked," but I have no idea what "WWII movie feature : hyph. wd." or "less brazen" could be. There are two definitions of brazen, the literal and the figurative, so I suppose either could be applicable, but without seeing how many letters or anything I can't even make a guess.

As I said, we also see many of the answers that Locke has filled in, but some of them don't even make sense. I'll list all of the ones that I caught:
  • Age - there have been many theories about the Other's aging process after we saw Richard Alpert in 2.20....could this be an early hint?
  • Covet - Self explanatory, but interesting nonetheless.
  • Edgar - Marvin Candle's new alias in the Orchid film was Edgar Hallowax...hmm...or maybe a reference to Edgar Allan Poe? Something about Locke has always reminded me of his writing...
  • Log - the inhabitants of the Pearl filled out Log books that were sent by pneumatic tube to a field in the middle of the island, though those who filled them out were told that they would be sent to another location for review.
  • Iona - An island in the Hebrides
  • Tense - well there's certainly some tension between a couple of the characters on the show...Jack/Locke, anyone? And there are many more such relationships just around the corner.
  • Group - Well we've had a group of Losties, and now we're adding a group of tailies to make one big fantastic group....and lets not forget the group of Others that we have yet to be introduced to at this point.
  • Cicero - very interesting
  • Brr - a polar bear reference? Maybe a nod to Penny's friends in the Arctic?
Someone much smarter than me has already gone onto Lostpedia and created an article for this crossword where you can see all of the other answers. There is a very interesting point about what would happen if Locke had the incorrect answer to 42 down, and the answer was actually "scripture." You can also see screenshots there, but here's mine, complete with with upped saturation and contrast :

So thats all the teaser you get! If you have anything to add about things I've mentioned, or anything else in either episode, JOIN US LIVE tomorrow at 9 p.m. EST. The talkcast ID is 35516. Also, there are two new ways that you can support the podcast. You can go to our article on Digg and Digg the cast - because we would really digg you for doing it <3333 Also, if you're a livejournal user, you can join my Lost haiku community - doesn't that sound like fun! If you're there, you might as well visit my graphics journal, too, because I love the attention =p

More Cool Stuff from the Emmy's!

This is totally non-Lost related, but is related to the last post.

I want to mention two awards given at the Creative Arts portion of the emmy's.

1) Battlestar Galatica, the only show I beleive to be currently better than Lost won for best special effects!! Ronald D. Moore can now rest easy knowing the coolest science fiction scene in 30 years(the Galactica falling through the atmosphere and then jumping away at the last moment) is appreciated.

2)The winner for Outstanding Orignal Music and Lyrics. Now before I say what won, I want to add that I've never really liked the Emmy's, and Tony Bennet winning like 20 of then is one reason why. They always seem like they are given out by people in thier 60s. With that said, I have to admit that this surprised me, and made me very happy.

The winner is, "DICK IN A BOX" from SNL!!. That's right, Justin Timberlake singing about a dick in a box won for most OUTSTANDING original music and lyrics. If you have no idea what this is, please go to and search for "Dick in a Box", and I garantee you'll laugh hysterically.

Now that I've made Amanda mad by typing the word dick several times on the Blog, I can depart with a job well done.

Holla for the Emmys...and this week's episode!

So the blog is back! Thanks to everyone who commented, it was much appreciated. I figured there was no better way to bring the blog back than with the most exciting Lost news in awhile...thats right. Terry O'Quinn finally won the well-deserved Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series =D But the Emmys weren't JUST about Lost for us. I really enjoyed the opening, and the bit with Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert....even though I was super confused when Steve Carrell won o.o;

Okay, so it was pretty much just about Lost for us....

Josh's favorite part of the show?

Terry O'Quinn's win, OF COURSE!

Amanda's favorite part of the show?

Terry O'Quinn's shirt :

Congrats to Terry for his win, and everyone on Lost that was nominated!

Here's this week's episode, by the by - 2.05 ...And Found, and 2.06 Abandoned
