And we're off again

Time for a Lostflashbacks Hiatus again. I hope everyone has a very happy holiday season and a very happy new year. The next time you hear us it'll be 2010. Also, by time our next episode airs, it will be less than a month until Season 6 starts!!!

No Doubt these two weeks off will go very fast. You can use this if post thread for anything you want. Dollhouse talk, maybe? That would be nice.

Ok all, once again have a happy holiday and a very happy new year.

No Show this Week...or Next.

Well, I dunno if youv;e all heard but the Premeire date for Lost has been announced. Feb, 2, 2009.

Which is a Tuesday....alrighty then.

So yeah, due to this, We are taking this week off for personal reasons. Nothing's wrong, just personal ish goin on.

Happy Turkey Day to all, and a Happy Birthday to me(which is on the 27th). You'll have one more year of being able to trust me, so cherish that.

Love you guys.

In a totally unreleated matter, I think i've finally lost my mind. On ABC Family there is a movie called "A Christmas Carol". Pretty standard right, there are like 50 versions. Well this one stars William Shatner and Tori Spelling. When Capt. Kirk and Tori "fakking" Spelling share a scene...that's a definet sign of the apocolypse.

Forget Twilight!

Since the new Twilight movie is coming out, I thought it proper to bring up this golden nugget from days gone by. I love all the listeners, mainly for stuff like this.

btw, I've never seen or read Twilight, but if it's your thing then ENJOY!!!

Why I watch Dollhouse.

If you don't watch Dollhouse, Eliza Dushku will come to your house or place of work and kick your ass.

This is an image of her on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

All kidding aside, it's a great show folks, watch it.

PS The Lost Flashbacks starts talking about Lost again this week. Come to the Show Thursday at 10:00 PM ET as we discuss Episodes 5.1 Because You Left, and 5.2 The Lie.

Happy Lost Day!

Happy Lost Day, all! I have spent the past several hours on Epic Wallpaper. As a testament to my photoshop skills, its quite a tragedy. As a testament to my love for Lost, however...well, I like it. Let us know how you're celebrating this great day in fandom =D





Resolution is 1024 x 768 - let me know if you take one!

Bet no one can do it

I bet no one can name all of the people in this picture. If you want to try, go for it. I have my thoughts on all of them, but I'm not 100% sure.

Next week is FIREFLY EPICSODE! Be there or Jayne's hat will eat you!

Monday, July 27, 2009


So...I would title this post with the most amazing image I have ever seen in my life, but there might be people who are going completely spoiler free for season six. I for one am glad I am not, because, well, that's the most amazing image I have ever seen in my life. I was a little disappointed with the panel in terms of information, but really great in terms of entertainment. I'm glad that we have two somewhat lackluster episodes to cover this week, because honestly, I could do an entire show about that image. Leave your thoughts on the image, and any of the panel content in the comments section!

If you have still managed to not see the panel, you can watch the whole thing, as well as some of the bonus videos, here. WATCH THE PANEL FIRST.

Episode 108 - TUNE IN

Episode 108 of the Lost Flashbacks will be done at the regular time, Thursday(tomorrow) at 10:00 ET.

Hope to see people there, although I know people dont really check this place that often. We will be talking about Lost Myths. So come with theories, speculation, crazy ramblings. Just as long as they are not spoilers for season 6, all will be discussed.


Thursday, June 25, 2009

Episode 108....Rescheduled?

Sorry guys for the late late announcement, but there wont be a show tonight. Both Amanda and I are a tad busy and while we could have done a show, it would only be about an hour, OR not include Amanda after and hour.

We both Agreed that that wont work for as special and episode as #108.

For those who dont know(specifically those who did not listen to the ENTIRE Constant episode...this was to be a special about Lost Myths and Mysterys.

Not to sure when this episode will air, next Thursday, July 2, I(Josh) am going to a Yankee Game, so no show that night. But keep up with the blog and such and we'll let y'all know .

In closing, and I'm sure I speak for Amanda as well, I want to send out my deepest condolenses to the Jackson family. Michael Jackson was a true genius, and the word "gifted" is not strong enough. For those too young(and much of our audience is) there was time when he was the biggest star in the world by far. And while the past several years he had gone down a dark path, we all know that he's moonwalking his way to a far better place. Because after all, he's bad, billie jean is not his lover and he's a smooth criminal.

Mission : Accomplished

Put that in a bowl and make wacky paste out of it.

I was talking to him with some other Lost fans, and I was like "I know you probably hate to hear this because you were so amazing in the show, but I'm like the biggest Lost fan in Pittsburgh and I've wanted to meet you for like a year." And he's like "No no, I don't hate to hear that, I'm a huge fan of the show still. So do you guys think Juliet is really dead?"


Thursday, May 21, 2009

Just confirming

There will be no show tonight - we are taking the week off to recover from the mind blowing finale. We would like suggestions on:

1. Things people would like us to cover over the hiatus - more lostographies and character discussions, reviews and watches of other series (Firefly) and movies (HBP), or whatever you kids can think of

2. Which night we should do the show on. We're sort of up in the air at the moment, and fan input would help us out.

Amanda (and Josh)

PS : Keep the inside joke-off going! We're halfway there!

To Boldy Go...

Hope everyone enjoyed the two shows the past two days. Both over 2 hours I believe!!! Back to our old ways.

I had so much fun talking about Trek with Big-O and Patrick. Wish Amanda could have been there more, but I assume her and I will mention Trek again in the future. :)

Well friends, another season of Lost has ended, and we all are wondering what will happen next. And of course I mean we all are wondering what will happen next in the Lost Flashbacks. I dont think any of us are wondering what will happen next in that ABC show about that hatch in the ground. Yeah right!!

Anyway, the following is a list of things being considered by the LFB, some of them will occur during the current hiatus, some will occur in the future, past Lost, and some may never occur.

1)A rewatch of seasons 4 and 5(I'm almost jumping out of my shoes excited for this after that finale)

2)A "watch" of Firefly. This will be us discussing it as if we are first watching it, so all you that never seen it can now watch it and enjoy it with us

3)A Star Trek watch(this may never occur, although I desperatly want it to)

4)A BSG rewatch(this also may never occur, mainly because GWC did it better than we could ever dream of)

5)Favorite Movie Watch(This will occur once Lost is over, look for it to be a mainstay)

6)A NEW CONTEST(listen for details in upcoming episodes of LFB)

Thank you everyone for making it possible for us to do this show, this also will act as the Offical Lost Season Finale thread. so if you have crazy comments or theories, post them here!

Current theory, the alternate realities in Star Trek and Fringe are the same reality and it's the same as the one created in Lost now. Oh yeah and everyone is a Cylon.

Thursday, May 7, 2009

No show tonight!

Sorry guys, I got tickets from work to go see Inigo Montoya (and Patti LuPone) in concert. And then to Quaker Steak and Lube...and then Star Trek. Tonight is going to be awesome =D And of course, Josh is going to the Yankee game. If you have any comments about the episode, feel free to make them here.

Don't forget about the LFB Inside Joke-Off! Let's make it to 100 comments!


Monday, May 4, 2009

So it begins....

Thanks to everyone who listened to our show! In case you didn't, we just want to thank everyone again for two great years and 100 great podcasts. To celebrate....

(Aforemetioned) Lost Flashbacks Inside Joke-off : Go

SERENITY NOW (I'm so punny!)

Hopefully we're not friends on Facebook, or you saw that twice....

Expect Amanda's use of Firefly quotes to skyrocket. Also expect Amanda to ask how people would feel about a Firefly show as an off-season distraction, even though it was Josh's idea.


Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Meanwhile, back at our other fandoms....

OOOH, fun idea - color coding!!!

So Lost is on tonight. But before we get all into that, lets take a look at some of the other shows on TV that we should be caring about. Because there are people out there who want us to. And by us (for now), I mean Amanda.

Lets be serious - the judges need to be nicer to Steve Wozniak.

Okay, that was the opposite of serious. Its just funny because I know someone named Steve Wozniak (how did I not know that it was such a common name?). Also because I'm very witty.

Lets go backwards to Monday's episode of Heroes, which I watched approximately three hours ago (because it took two hours for the frakking thing to load...NBC's streaming player SUCKS). Much like the judges on Dancing with the Stars with The Woz, we have been hard on Heroes lately. While this was probably deserved, I think the most recent episode has put me in my place a bit. I found myself genuinely caring about the episode and (most of) the characters, and genuinely surprised by some of the things that they threw at me.


Micah is rebel. I am probably the only person who had not figured that out yet (I forgot about him!), so I thought it was surprising, logical, and generally done well. I liked seeing NGC and Ali Larter in scenes where she wasn't his insane mother.

Speaking of Ali Larter, TWO annoying blondes bit it in this episode! YAY! I didn't hate Tracy, but I was never a fan of their perpetuating Ali Larter's character by giving her FOUR (so far) characters to play. Three down. Aaaaand, my favorite character and the most talented performer on the show Gwen Stefani (that cracked me up) also did not survive the episode. It was what I will call a "reverse Dallas," which I have no complaints about.

Two men and a baby were probably my favorite part of the episode. I felt very bipolar during those scenes, because I was cracking up one second and tearing up the next. It was cool seeing Ando finally use his power as a death ray, rather than just a super charger for other people. I'm still waiting for that part where he and Hiro are enemies. Unless they already wrote themselves out of it and I missed it.

As Josh previously stated to me, Mohinder is officially the dumbest character on the show. Peter used to be in the running, but I thought the part where he whisked mommie dearest up the elevator shaft was pretty cool - not to mention unexpected.

Speaking of Angela Petrelli (sort of), YAY Lockemom! Now both of the crazy/awesome aunts from Pushing Daisies (;.;) have been on this show!


In much more important and rewarding news, the series finale of Battlestar Galactica was on Friday. I was at a friend's house who had a TV which got the SciFi channel, but who would have rather had a root canal than watch BSG. So every time The Princess Bride went to commercial, I pulled up the guide, just happened to stop on SciFi, and watched the tiny, silent, windowed version with bated breath. Then she TiVoed it for me, and I woke up nice and early at 12:30 to watch it.

I was really really pleased. There were a few things that I felt were cop-outs, but in no way do I feel that it "sucked ass." My top ten favorite moments were:

1. Everything after "150,000 years later," especially me realizing that I recognized RDM (I'm a REAL fan!)
2. "You can see them too!?!"
3. Is Cheif Tyrol gonna have to choke a bitch? (Yes)
4. The opera house scenes - CHILLS!
5. Starbuck realizing that the notes in the song were jump coordinates to NuEarth, Looking Glass style!
6. Lee charging into the colony with an army of centurions - now with racing stripes!
7. Admiral.Hoshi. (And president Romo Lampkin!)
8. Roslin's goodbye to Doc Cottle! So funny, so sad!
9. The flashbacks, particularly the first one (the Tigh's and Adama) and the last one (Baltar and Six, talking about the defense mainframe).
10. Caprica and Baltar's happy ending (did NOT expect that!), Adama and Roslin's bittersweet one, and Tyrol's "frak all y'all, I'ma go be the UK!"

I was a little bummed that Starbuck didn't have some deeper purpose, although I suppose it was kind of cool. She just...wasn't that important =\ At first, I was disappointed about Helo not bleeding out like Athena said he would, and then I watched Dollhouse. And then I heard that they were going to kill him, but Tahmoh Penniket didn't like that...and I was disappointed again.

But I still love Paul Ballard. Seriously, watch Dollhouse, and then talk to me about it. Because I'm in love with it. And Paul Ballard.

The Apple-Turtle Conundrum

This is just a bit of BS, but its totally made my night, so here goes.....

SO, in the comments for the previous blog, Tristan said:

"Never been a Family-Guyer myself, but a friend has made it his life's purpose to prove that it is better than LOST (rubbish, imho). I emailed him the link just for the awesome-ness of the coincidence."

Now, I happen to be a huge Family Guy fan. In fact, I have watched seasons 5 and 6 in their entirety in the past three days. However, when reading this comment, I was reminded of an old saying I made up. My response was going to be:

"Family better....than Lost? That's like trying to compare apples and turtles." Apples and turtles was the old line. Upon second thought, I decided that I needed something even crazier to give my statement the punch I wanted it to have. This prompted me to ask Josh and a friend of mine possibly the best question I have ever asked anyone:

"Whats something that's even less like an apple than a turtle?"

Answers included: emus, rocks, a bottle of ear medicine, a semi-retarded racehorse, a Boeing 747, the Geico Gecko, cinnamon toast crunch, and advanced particle physics.

Post your answers in the comments to this blog : what's something that's even less like an apple than a turtle? Best answer will be posted on a blog and mentioned in the podcast, not to mention I will probably quote it forever and ever, amen.

Some Off Week Updates

-First and foremost, tonight is Big O's Heroes Bash. I don't think I will be attending, but I know Josh will, and I know it will be a good time =)

-If the tour of Spring Awakening is coming to your town, GO SEE IT. Unless you're put off by teenagers having sex on stage....or homosexuality....or abortion...or suicide. Or amazing rock music and great acting =D Blake Bashoff is beyond amazing, and I can't wait to gush all over him tomorrow night at the post-show.

-Come to our Sawyer party tomorrow. We've been hyping this show for awhile, so we're pumped about it.

-There's a new poll up on DarkUFO that gives a list of characters, one of which will be killed this season. The list is pretty intesnse, so I would put a spoiler warning on this one.

-There's another poll on E! Online that pits male TV characters against each other. Go vote for the Lost men (or not...I had to vote for Sylar).

-If you're bored, look up "Lost the Sitcom" or "Ben Uncensored"(Part I and Part II) on Youtube. Obviously, there's language on these ones.

-Comment on your blog with your thoughts on these things and others!

Hey all.

I know this is a Lost Blog, but since JJ, and a bunch of other Lost peeps are working on Star Trek I figured it was cool to talk about this here. Also, it's my blog, so there.

The new Star Trek trailer is AMAZING! Every fear I had about that movie is now gone. Which may turn out to be a bad thing, since if I go in thinking it will be the greatest star trek movie ever, and it's not, I'll be very disapointed. However, I find it hard to see how it will not be amazing. It may not be better than The Wrath of Khan, or First Contact, but that would be ok. I love those two movies. But if this one even comes close...oh my goodness.

The trailer site is below. The movie comes out on May 8th, and you can BET there will be a Lostflashbacks episode dedicated to it. Either then, or soon after Season 5 ends.

Here, mom!

I'll be deleting this soon. x.x

Just so you know, the reason that I posted this is because I want that hair clip. =p

-Obviously Not Josh

108 POSTS! =D

WHOO! This is blog #108 - so cool^^;

I've realized that we stopped posting the episodes awhile back, and that's no good. Tonight, we talked about the episode for at least an hour. The other 60% of the show, I can't exactly say the same for. We rewarded our chatters and those of you who will actually listen to the whole frakking thing with some information about the bizzarro episode, among some other crazy things, but it basically turns into a ramblecast.

I do, however, want to hear any and all theories about WHO the baby is. You can hear mine on the show.

Also, has just released two awesome new shirts, which can be seen here and here. I can't decide which one I want...of course, there's also the Looking Glass tee, which I've wanted since season three. But I will definitely be asking for one for my birthday at the end of this month. Or, God forbid, BUYING one with my own money because I will actually have funds that don't go to rent, gas, or groceries.

Here's the show!

Episode 92 - LaFleur Initial Ramblecast


Thursday, March 5, 2009

Recording now!

Come talk about LaFleur with us RIGHT NOW =D

So if you decide to look at this page, please come join us on Talkshoe. Talkcast ID 35516!

And by all means CALL IN!!!

Its 4:34 a.m.

And I just watched the episode. Not as good as I was expecting from the reviews, but definitely a great episode. Keep an eye out for a potential review podcast tonight. *Passes out.*

A Public Apology

So at the end of last night's show, if you made it that far, we commented on how we were sad that no one called in anymore. Little did we know that there were several people called in who were probably screaming "UNMUTE ME" into their phones. So to those people, the only ones whom I am aware of being Tristan and Amanda's Mom™, thank you for calling, and we're sorry. I hear Josh has a computer again, so next week we won't have that problem. We will however have the problem (?) of me not being present, because that karaoke contest which I mentioned a few times starts next week, and I am a finalist. So...I'm kind of freaking out =( I will talk to Josh about maybe him doing an initial reaction show, and then recording another episode after I've seen it. Not sure yet, but we'll keep you posted. As always, Namaste.


Thursday, February 12, 2009

Episode Titles! This is necessary!

So, Josh was kind enough to text me the remaining known episode titles, and to say I am thrilled is an understatement. I'm going to list all of them, including the ones that I named on the podcast last night.

If you don't want to know, don't read.

5.06 - 316
I'm going to say that this is the new bearing that Faraday has to calculate. Although it doesn't look like we'll be seeing much of the on-island story, though, so who knows.

5.07 - The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham
Pretty straight forward, I think. We'll find out what Locke was up to after he got off the island. If its anything else, that will be quite the curve ball.

5.08 - LeFleur
I gave spoilers for this episode last night. My mother gave a theory that these spoilers refer to a DREAM SEQUENCE, which totally broke my heart...if it is NOT a dream sequence, I might explode from excitement. Granted, this is one scene. No idea how important the scene is to the theme of the episode. Either way, this is the episode that I'm gearing up for right now.

5.09 - Namaste
I think we'll see Dharma back in the day, learn about the frieghties being on the island the first time(s). I'm subscribing to the theory that Miles was the baby in the first scene of the season, and we know that Charlotte was born on the island. I'm thinking that's where we'll go this episode.

5.10 - He's Our You
Something to do with deep-rooted island mythology, mostly Jacob, and Locke learning what his true island destiny is. I think if this line is said, it will be said to Locke or Jacob.

5.11 - Whatever Happened Happened
This sounds like a forgiveness fest to me. It depends on where the story is at this point...more speculation in the future.

5.12 - Dead is Dead
You know, I have a feeling its not. I also have a feeling that we'll learn about the nature of death on the island, such as we've seen with Pere Shephard

5.13 - Some Like It Hoth
Why would you need my speculation, or anything, after hearing that title? Well, just in case, I'm really hoping that this has to do with Penny's buddies in the arctic.

5.14 - The Variable
You know, as opposed to...The Constant? No, I'm not trying to insult your intelligence, I'm just putting it out there. Surely there's SOMEONE on the internet to which that hadn't occurred. Or maybe I just don't have anything else to say. I just think its an awesome title, because it has that other episode to play off of.

There you have it - speculate away =)

Quote of the day

"I think Ben and John Locke should be roommates in Brooklyn. And then just have wacky adventures." - Michael Emerson


You can read the full interview here, the first part is Elizabeth Mitchell, the second is Michael. Its both entertaining and informative.

Lost is on tomorrow, and I HAVE A TV THIS WEEK!


Wednesday, February 4, 2009


...unless someone falls out of the sky with a TV, I won't be able to see the episode tonight. Which really sucks, because I'm more excited about this episode than the previous three combined. I'm not sure if Josh will be doing the show, but I certainly won't be there, because I PHEAR spoilers. So, until I actually get to see the episode...which could be...oh, I don't know...a very long time from now...


Thursday, January 29, 2009


What an awesome episode, right? So many cool reveals, and little things tied together...a real continuity fest. You can (barely) hear us talk all about it on last night's show, available for download right here! Oh, and you can also find out who won the contest <3

Episode 89 (Don't believe Talkshoe) - Jughead initial reaction

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

So...I fail....

First of all, Happy Lost Day. I wish I was more excited. Second of all, Josh and I would both like to apologize, myself in particular. Josh has been having some problems with his computer, and by "some problems" I mean he can't use it at all. If he didn't have an iPhone with ridiculous capabilities, I probably wouldn't have spoken to him at all in the past two weeks or so. I have been going through a very difficult experience personally, and to be frank, the podcast is the last thing on my mind. We were going to try to do a last minute show last night, and I passed out at 5 p.m. after not having slept for three days, only to wake up at 5 a.m. and kick myself. I hope you'll all be understanding towards both of us, and that we will be able to get back on some kind of schedule now that the show is back on.

While we do not know exactly what that schedule will be, I can tell you that there will be an initial reaction show following tonight's episode. We will probably make an announcement about our next show at that time.

Once again, thank you for bearing with us, and enjoy the premiere tonight


Thursday, January 8, 2009


No show tonight. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Monday, January 5, 2009

Michael Giacchino gets some nice recognition.

I was looking at one of my favorite websites for info about movies and tv shows; And they had a list of the 10 Best Scores of 2008.

The amazing composer who brought us Life and Death and every other score on Lost got mentioned TWICE. His epic theme that played only during the end credits from Cloverfield is #7. And his amazingly excitingly awesome score for everyone's favorite movie, Speed Racer staring Mathew Fox is...#1!!!

The piece is very well written and is a great place to see why people like me love film scores almost as much(and sometimes more) than the films themself.

Find it here:

Updates to the schedual

Hey all, last night we had a great show about Season 3. 4 hours long!! Sometimes it's nice to get back to the long shows.

About the upcoming shows, we have 2 left until Lost returns.

Episode 87 - The Lost Season 4 DVDs and To Be Announced
January 8, 2009(1/08)

The TBA now is a discussion of James "Sawyer" Ford. No doubt we again will discuss one of the most amazing scenes in the entire series, and how it's a crime that Josh Holloway does not have an emmy to polish on his mantle. One cool thing about the DVD discussion being with the Sawyer Character Analysis is that a moment of kindness and humanity by Sawyer have reprecussions in another Losties future life that becomes essential to the series.

Episode 88 - Is Lost Back Yet? Part 4
January 15, 2009

Today's topics?

A look back at Season 4 of LOST
A look foward at Season 5 of LOST
A look at who is the winner of the contest.
A look at ourselves...the podcast I mean, and what we will be doing during season 5.

LOST RETURNS ON JAN 21, 2009. That's a Wednesday btw.
