87 – a wise man once said that war was coming to this island. i think it just got here.

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.

86 – god’s special mirror

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.
