Lost Friday - Attack Of The Rerun Edition!

SPOILER (nerd) ALERT!
(This post contains photos and synopses of upcoming episodes. It's nothing that you wouldn't see from watching the previews though, so suck it up.)

Another week, another Lost rerun. We, however, have much to discuss.

First off, some scheduling business. Here's a rundown of the next THREE weeks of Lost, courtesy of ABC and yours truly:

Wednesday, March 15 - Season 1, Episode 6 - "House of the Rising Sun" (REPEAT)

("Don't leave me, CDP! I love you more than toast!")

This was the episode where Jin and Michael took turns beating the crap out of each other over the watch that Michael found on the beach. Also, we find out more about Jin and Sun's courtship, along with the secret that Sun can speak English. In the subplot, Locke helps Charlie kick the smack addiction, and the group splits up between the caves and the beach.

Wednesday, March 22 - Season 2, Episode 16 - "The Whole Truth" (NEW!)

("So it's final then. Sun loves the CDP more than toast.")

Sun wrestles with the thought of telling Jin a newfound secret that threatens to upset the entire balance of the survivors' community. Meanwhile, Locke enlists Ana Lucia to interrogate the prisoner in order to extract more information than he, Jack or Sayid could.

This is going to be a Jin/Sun flashback episode, and if you remember from the preview last week, Sun thinks she might be pregnant on the island. Remember last week when Claire asked Sun if she was a mother? Sun gave her a weird look and answered 'no,' but it was a good lead-in to this week's plot twist.

Wednesday, March 29 - Season 2 Episode 17 - "Lockdown" (NEW!)

("I want toast.")

When the hatch suddenly takes on a life of its own, Locke is forced to enlist the help of an unlikely ally. Meanwhile, Ana Lucia, Sayid and Charlie go off into the jungle to find out the truth about Henry.

This looks like a Locke episode, which are my personal favorites. It's been way too long. Plus, the hatch is taking on a life of its own? Are you kidding me?

Excited? Hell, I'm so excited that I'm afraid to stand up in front of you.

Moving on rather swiftly, I wanted to bring the following cartoons to your attention. If you read the comic strip Monty, you'll know that he's been doing Lost-themed cartoons for the last week or so. Monty went overboard on a cruise ship in an attempt to snag a T.G.I. Friday's coupon, and washed up on the island. It's been hilarious.

Here then, the strips. After today, you're on your own to find them:

02/28 Strip
03/01 Strip
03/02 Strip
03/03 Strip
03/04 Strip
03/06 Strip
03/07 Strip
03/08 Strip
03/09 Strip

("I was supposed to meet the toast in room 116.")

In other news, it turns out that Darren Aronofsky will NOT be directing an episode of Lost this season. Due to his busy schedule (His Oscar-winning fiancee', Rachel Weisz, is pregnant and his long-awaited film 'The Fountain' is taking years to complete), he dropped out, but will probably direct an episode in season three.

Speaking of season three, do you realize that there's like, only 7 episodes left this season? It seems like only a week ago that we saw Desmond pack his bags and leave the castaways to fend for themselves in the hatch. Wild. I remember when I watched the pilot episode, and I was wondering if Kate or Sayid crashed the plane because they were a criminal and an Iraqi respectively. Those were the good old days, and I'm an idiot.

Okay, get outta here. Here's the gallery of Lost Fridays for your consumption. E-mail me at communistdance@yahoo.com, and start the discussion in the comments section. Later.

Comments:
Walker told me Lost has AIDS.
 
Walker Texas Ranger morelike Talker AIDS Danger
 
Maybe that's what everyone keeps referring to as the "sickness." I just thought they were all big Disturbed fans. This island keeps getting weirder and weirder.
 
"What are you? in the 17th grade?"
 
Those comic strips were funny. I've never heard of that one before.

Good times.
 
Monty is very funny, because the drawings are funny. The artist is the only guy I know who can draw a telephone in a strip and make it look funny.
 
I'm sorry to have to tell you... that the colonel has been murrrdered.

I've watched both those S&D eps a few more times, I really like that show. It's really not like Arrested Development at all, except for that there's no laugh track.

Man, you love toast.
 
You know it. I prefer mine with peanut butter and butter.

S&D has a vibe all its own, the improv aspect is what sets it apart. If ABC would have picked up AD like it was supposed to, this would be the biggest 1-2 ha-ha punch on TV.
 
I hope they move it away from According to Jim, or that they start acting like According to Jim never actually existed. I can't see them sharing any audience at all, except for the coveted bedridden-but-doesn't-own-a-remote-control demographic.
 
"Honey, According to Jim's done. Where's the remote?"

"Um...dunno."

"Well, screw it then. Let's watch Sons & Daughters."

"I love you, sweetheart."

"Shut up."
 
I really love the fat annoying husband with the skinny wife dynamic. It's so cutting edge
 
Hey, that's a stereotype that needs to be perpetuated. The other stereotype that apparently needs to be perpetuated is that non-creative, non-funny people can get jobs writing, directing, producing, and starring in sitcoms.

It's still not as bad as The War at Home.
 
Amen. The next time you have some time to waste, check out an old episode of All In The Family on TV Land. It's really not all that good.
 
No way, that show is classic!

Yeah, you can't compete with nostalgia.
 
Did you see Freeride last night. I'm starting to like that show. I was cracking up when he was trying to explain to his dad how the car came with oil in it.
 
Okay, I'll leave All In The Family alone. Criticizing it in 2006 isn't really fair.

Free Ride was good; the dialogue was fast and furious, and not like the movie of the same name.
 
Yeah, there was some good stuff you had to listen for. When they were arguing on the lawn the Aunt was telling Doug that Gerald was a veterinarian and he said some thing like "I respect what you did in the war"
 
I was kidding about All in the Family. What I've seen has been pretty funny, and I'm sure it was pretty edgy for it's time. But it's no contest if you put it beside the wit of AD or Simpsons.

Dangit, I forgot to tivo Free Ride.
