    That depression beard would have made the location shoot in Hawaii miserable. Or was it a fake beard?

    I’m on S2 and I forgot how annoying Charlie’s whole “There are no Others!” deal was after the incident with Rousseau.

    Like, are you just... forgetting about Ethan?

    Boy I’d really forgotten how annoying Charlie got in S2.

    "Fire + Water" is probably the worst episode of the series.

    I’m not even there yet. I’m more talking about insisting there aren’t any Others even though that’s clearly bull****/chewing Hurley out over his Hatch activities/acting like he’s a better parent to Aaron than Claire is/etc.

    Which I guess is pretty good foreshadowing to the ****ery of that episode, but still. :o

    Stranger in a Strange Land?

    Funnily enough the only two episodes of Lost I ever missed live were that episode and the Nicky and Paolo one. And I didn't miss anything.

    I started a Lost rewatch early in the pandemic but got lost early on. What struck me was that it's easy to forget how the show set the direction for so much of TV still to this day, 15/16 years after its launch. It's astounding.

    I think it was after watching Walkabout I decided I couldn't put myself through Locke's utterly desperate arc again.

    I would agree it would be easy to relaunch this show at some point, whether it would be a prequel or whatever. So much left unanswered, there's a show somewhere that could write itself based on fan service alone.

    People always bring up unanswered questions, but there are really very few things that nag at me.

    The only one that actually presents a possibility for a continuation IMO is whoever was shooting at Sawyer and Co. when they were skipping around in time.

    Indeed. I think that’s the silver lining of their being there in the first place. Trying to replenish the cast ranks by elevating a few background castaways didn’t work, but at least the send off was fun.

    I’m getting into the introduction of Henry Gale stuff in S2 now, and just because of how we viewed it at the time, it’s easy to put yourself into the mindset of “Oh, what if he really is telling the truth and he’s just a castaway?” But now it’s even funnier to wonder what he was thinking as Ben, when in short succession, he gets shot with a crossbow, beaten by Sayid and watches Eko cut off his beard in front of him. He could never have been adequately prepared for how much these people were wilding after two months on the island.

    Watching “Dave” now and I don’t care what he was going through or if they had more food on the way, the survivors should’ve beat Hurley’s ass for wasting his entire stash like that.

    I’m on Brian K. Vaughan’s first episode now, Catch-22, and it feels appropriate that it begins with a superhero debate.

    Aw, man. I’ve kept thinking during my rewatch, “Why did they never make Rousseau a full-time castmember?” She just killed it her whole time there. Awful. RIP.

    Danielle Rosseau was one of my characters in the show! Damn and she seemed like a nice woman as well. :(

    There really wasn’t a production design category at the Emmys until 2014? **** that bull****. LOST would’ve swept every year. Look at the Swan station. Look at how many ****ing world locations the crew was able to turn Hawaii into.

    I think a new show would be better served with a new mythology, but I'd play the crap out of a Lost video game that allowed you to fully explore the island and uncover all the lore you could.

    New mythology would be fine with me as long as it's a tighter show. I decided to rewatch from season 4 onwards recently as an experiment, given it was the first 3 seasons that established the mythology the rest of the show tried to stay faithful to. Needless to say I was utterly confused by much of it.

    Less centric episodes would be welcome too.

    It's tricky, the show already explored a lot of stuff, I don't know how they can create something 'new' without acknowledging some of what happened already.
    There's a bunch of stuff around DHARMA that could be potentially interesting, Alvar Hanso, the stations, all the work that Faraday did in the 70's outside the Island. Maybe that could be a starting point? Perhaps there are other islands/places/eras where DHARMA was and have the show from their point of view.
    Still all the mythology in the world won't matter if the characters are uninteresting. (Big) part of what made Lost 'Lost' were the characters. Like I said, potentially interesting but very tricky to pull off.

    Decided to rewatch after so many years.

    I guess Jacob didn't like queer people very much, huh? Chose so many people, not one queer.

    According to Lost’s wiki page, it looks like Tom Friendly was a candidate.
