it’s a Season 4, Episode 9 kind of week, where we talk about The Shape of Things to Come. in the present, it’s Ben’s time to have a really intense showdown with a terrible man. then after a bad decision, he flusesh a toilet. in the future, he becomes a paparazzi before his arch nemesis roasts his eyes. meanwhile we figure out a terrible truth about feet and figure out how to really spice up a classic trilogy. remember, its a show about a plane!
feels a little silly to write a description, everything you need’s right there in the title! well i guess we’ll provide the episode title, Lockdown, and tell you it’s Season 2 Episode 17. we’ll also tell you about Locke’s past, where he almost marries Katey Segal, but then his pesky ol dad fakes his death and gets up to no good. in the present, Locke gets Married! and Ben masquerades as a regular man from Walnut Ridge Road. we also provide some social commentary and revisit what it really means to say a funny Borat. it’s all a blur this week, baby!!
content warning: the flashbacks in this episode deal with domestic abuse, sexual assault, and incest. we keep discussion of this confined from roughly 3:55 to 16:05 if you’d rather skip it.
bad episode this week, folks! it’s Season 1 Episode 13, Hearts and Minds. it’s a Boone episode, the only one! in the present, locke torments boone for incredibly normal reasons. and in the past, well? if you read that content warning and said “Lost can probably handle these subjects tactfully,” i’ve got bad news for you, bub. it’s a quick contender one of the all time worst episodes, but at least Hurley does a funny peepee and throws up. we also run down some stats and think about the road going forward into the canonical final 30 episodes of the show. thanks for listening!
special guest Stephanie, of City Girls Make Do infamy, joins us for our 90th episode bonanza!! we watched Season 2, Episode 19, S.O.S, and it’s all about the beloved Rose and Bernard!! back in the day, they were in love, and guess what?? they’re still in love to this very day!! but is Bernard more in love with a man named Isaac? is Rose too committed to the roast? it doesn’t matter cause they’re both incredibly expressive actors. guess what? we liked it this week! the show was good! when even Charlie can contribute to the episode, you know we lucked out. happy 90 years to us, here’s to 90 more years
welcome to the Sum 41 shuffle, where we recount facts about exactly one band called Sum 41. by sheer coincidence we also watched Season 5, Episode 15, Follow The Leader. in the past, Jack wonders about blowing up a hydrogen bomb and thinks its a really good idea. some of his friends disagree!! and in the present, Locke runs a few errands with his friends Ricky and Ben. Sun exists also. we also finally decide to run for office, and Richard Gere joins the battle. good luck to all involved.
we shuffle the island this week on Season 2, Episode 10, the 23rd Psalm. Mr Eko has a sordid past where he made a choice and became a drug lord, and his brother became a priest. y’all ever heard of… good and evil?? meanwhile in the present, he meets Ol Smokey and Charlie remains a pissant. we also catch up with what some of the stars are up to on social media!! remember to log on to twitter dot com
we recommend watching a youtube video with zero views instead of watching Season 6 Episode 10, The Package. this week, Sun and Jin find true and passionate love in an alternate reality where the mob is constantly hunting them down. then in real life, nothing really happens at all!! Sun forgets a language?? uhhh Widmore… says a word. truly some bad tv here today, even by season 6 standards. what’s the worst pet? listen and find out.
it’s Season 6 Episode 5, aka Lighthouse. we got those in the Maritimes, and Jacob has one too. it’s a good place to visit exactly once. Jack thinks about what if he had a son and the son didn’t like him very much. Jin has a busted leg and lies to a friend. Hurley and Jacob are best buds. in the tumultuous waters of this incredibly bad season of television, we can only hope that Ciggy’s Cove guides us safely home.
CW: this episode deals heavily in unreality. its pretty strongly woven into the plot of the episode, and there’s no avoiding it, so maybe skip this one if you’d prefer. additionally, we talk about a suicide related scene from roughly 39:30 to 41:45.
for christmastime we talk about Dave this week, season 2 episode 18. our friend Hurley struggles with mental health, trauma, and eating disorders, and a mean 3rd-baldest man named Dave gives everyone a piece of his mind. Charlie has a funny joke too, and good for him. meanwhile, Bean and James have a family and struggle to find a solution to our gravy problem, and James sharpens his standup comedy skills. it’s a great week for a forbidden pepper, and we’ll hit the bong to that!
what do you think about culture and class in korea? well Season 2 Episode 5 “…And Found” has some thoughts and is eager to share them with you, cause it’s all about Sun and Jin baby!!!! in this episode’s past, Sun tries to find love and Jin tries to find a job. and in the present, Jin fights a friend and Sun wonders where Jin is. we consider some health care policy and master the art of the segue this week, and demand cusses from the queen. we have fun, in other words! thanks for listening
