The last Lost chat of the season!

by Ryan j Budke, posted May 24th 2006 8:00PM
lost; the others; the islandThis is it folks. The second season finale of Lost. This episode has been getting quite a bit of buzz about it. I'm pretty sure it's co-written by God the way that those who have seen it talk about it. At least one big shock has been given away if you pay real close attention to the commercials. Don't be caught off-guard! Make sure you you join me here tonight so that you can voice your own opinion. As with all of our chats, you need to have AIM or a compatible client (Trillian, GAIM, etc). Once you have that, make sure you meet right back here to this very post at 8pm ET, and that's when I'll unveil the location for the chat room. You can chat along with me (TVSRyan) and the rest of the Lost fanatics live! I'll see you there.

UPDATE:
Come one, come all; here is the secret location for our Lost Chat! See you inside.

TV Squad Lost Podcast: Three Minutes

by Ryan j Budke, posted May 18th 2006 11:13PM
lost podcastC.K. and I return for the second to last episode of the season (and possibly our second to last podcast ever!) Three minutes. This one dealt with Micheal's time with the others and it felt very much like "the calm before the storm." Everyone's been hyping up next week's finale so much that I'm pretty sure that God was a co-writer on it. We'll have to wait and see, in the meantime, listen in on our thoughts and let us know what you think.

You'll find the podcast enclosed in the feed of this post, you can subscribe via our podcast feed (link), and here's a direct link to the 21MB file running 45:16 in length. You can also subscribe to our podcast via the iTunes Music Store (link).

Lost: Three Minutes

by C.K. Sample, III, posted May 17th 2006 11:01PM
(S02E22) Tonight's episode of Lost titled "Three Minutes" begins 13 days in the past, when Michael first knocked out Locke, stole a gun, and locked Locke and Jack in the closet together. For the entire episode, we flash back and forth between Michael's side of the thirteen days he's been missing and the current actions on the island. This is only the third episode of Lost to exclusively focus on flashbacks from the island with no look at someone's life off the island (the others being "The Other 48 Days" and the episode where Claire recovers her past memories from when she was abducted by the Others).

Chat live as we find out what Michael's deal is on Lost (seriously this time)

by Ryan j Budke, posted May 17th 2006 8:00PM
lost; the others; the islandOk, so I screwed up last week and said that it was a Michael-centric episode and we got some answers.

Make sure you you join me here tonight so that you can voice your own opinion. As with all of our chats, you need to have AIM or a compatible client (Trillian, GAIM, etc). Once you have that, make sure you meet right back here to this very post at 8pm ET, and that's when I'll unveil the location for the chat room.

Chat live during Lost as we find out what Michael's deal is

by Ryan j Budke, posted May 10th 2006 8:00PM
lost; the others; the islandWhoa, I'm not sure about you, but after last week's episode I felt physically exhausted. That's the kind of Lost I'm talking about. The rumors are we're actually going to be getting some answers tonight as it's a Michael-centric episode and his flashback will deal with his time with The Others. Make sure you you join me here tonight so that you can voice your own opinion. As with all of our chats, you need to have AIM or a compatible client (Trillian, GAIM, etc).

TV Squad Lost Podcast: Two for the road

by Ryan j Budke, posted May 4th 2006 2:52PM
lost podcastI'm back joining C.K. this week for our running commentary and thoughts on last night's episode of Lost: Two for the road. Boy, was there some big stuff that went down in last night's episode too. As you'll be able to hear, this is one of my favorite episodes in a long, long time. This episode changes all kinds of stuff and really sets up this last run of episodes for some great times. C.K. and I both had some interesting theories on what has happened so far and things that may be coming up. So listen in and let us know what you think.

Lost: Two for the Road

by C.K. Sample, III, posted May 3rd 2006 10:54PM
(S02E20) Is it just me, or is it really funny (in a meta-sort of way) that tonight's Ana Lucia-centric episode of Lost is called Two for the Road? I mean, considering that Rodriguez was recently busted for drunk driving, the producers have to be busting her chops with that setup. Maybe it was a clue of things to come in the episode...

If you missed the episode, remember, ABC now offers the show for free online viewing (albeit ad-supported viewing). Watch it before you read too much further in this post, or you're sure to encounter a  spoiler or two.

As you might remember from the last new episode we had, oh so many weeks ago, we left with Jack and Kate seemingly about to kiss when Michael burst forth from the jungle and passed out. This episode begins at the same point, and the Michael story line is balanced nicely against Ana Lucia's flashbacks and dealings with her anger at Henry Gale, who at the beginning of the episode attempts to strangle her to death.

Why would anyone want to work at Dunder-Mifflin?

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 16th 2006 10:01AM

The OfficeI cringe every time I watch The Office. I want to intervene into the lives of these people. Go right into their office, or at least e-mail them (if Michael isn't monitoring the e-mails they get) and implore them to leave that awful company at once. It seems to me that none of these people could possibly get paid a lot of money, so what makes them stay there? The wonderful atmosphere (ugh)? The fun coworkers (not really)? The great boss (ahem)? It's almost the ultimate example of the lame, tedious, soul-sucking office you hear so much about. I've worked in a couple of offices like that, and it was the worst time of my life. 

Michael is one thing. He gets paid well and seems to be on some blind corporate career track (though I think that even he would improve as a person if he left the company). But it's the other characters, like Jim and Pam, who I worry about. They should be working some place else before they wake up 5 years from now in the same crappy job.

Dwight, however...I don't know what could help him.

Lost: The Hunting Party

by C.K. Sample, III, posted Jan 18th 2006 11:59PM
"The Hunting Party," tonight's episode of Lost was again filled with new twists, turns, and revelations. The character du jour of the show was Jack, and while we were shown more interactions between him and his father in the show's flashbacks, the main story line of the backstory revolved around his relationship with his wife. As you'll recall, in a previous episode we discovered that Jack's wife was the same woman who crashed her car into Shannon's father, killing him. Jack married her after miraculously curing a back injury that should have left her paralyzed for life.

We begin "The Hunting Party" in a flashback of a father and daughter talking to Jack and Jack's father for assistance in removing a tumor in the father's spine. The surgery is too risky and Jack's father tells them he's not willing to operate. We then discover that Jack has some fame as a miracle doctor after healing his wife, and that they weren't interested in Jack's father's help, but rather came to seek Jack's help. Jack, partially to feed his pride and partially to defy his father, agrees to the surgery.

Lost "Sneak Peeks" available on AOL

by Ryan j Budke, posted Jan 10th 2006 4:44PM
And you guys thought us working for "the man" wasn't going to have it's benefits.... Over on AOL's page devoted to Lost, they've got four clips of tomorrow night's episode available for viewing. The first two up revolve around Charlie, Eko and Charlie's statue of the Virgin Mary, and actually seem to confirm a pretty big secret, but I'll let you guys watch it. The third one has Kate cutting Sawyer's hair as he gets some unexpected visitors. The final one follows up on November's cliffhanger with Michael at the keyboard inside the hatch. The longest clip is only a little over a minute and a half, but all are really juicy, and well worth your valuable time. Man, I can not wait until tomorrow night!
