I thought this was the best episode of the season. Kate and Sawyer return, and Charlie didn't die, yet, that is. And the ending was awesome, I can't wait until next week's episode

this episode was AWESOME.

Did it advance the plot - no, not really.
it was hysterical- on all accounts. sawyer/jin/hurley was hilarious.
the hurley flashbacks were great too.


hurley mentioned way back in season 1 that a meteor destroyed the chicken place he worked at (eventually owned). and, now we got to see it. that brought major LOLZ

the song in the van going down the hill was spot on PERFECTION

That was a surprise to me when I saw it hit the chicken place, but that's because I've only seen 2 episodes in season 1, and that was the Pilot.

also - props to the writers for the title/name of the reporter which is clearly a parody of asian correspondent trisha takanowa on Family Guy

I so shouldn't laugh, but that was hilarious! I don't remember anything about the meteor from first season, so that was so out of left field....

Not much new stuff in this episode, not even in the flashbacks. We knew Hurley's Chicken place would be hit by a meteor, we knew Randy (Hurley ex-boss) would work under Hurley sometime (because he would be Locke's boss in the box company that Hurley owned), and we knew that whatever happened before the plane crash, nothing would convince Hurley that he was *not* cursed. Oh, the only thing that surprised me in the flashbacks was to hear that skinny Johnny ran off with Hurley's girlfriend(http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g36/sgeureka/smilies/blink.gif) Starla.

On the island (like in most Hurley flashback episodes), nothing really changed except for Hurley to get further proof that he is cursed / not cursed. I still can't tell. So I guess you could miss this episode and not miss much, plotwise.

One good thing: Sawyer seems to be back to pre-Kate jerk, and Kate is no longer Sawyer's oh-let's-cuddle girl. That was faster than I expected. Whenever the S3 DVDs come out, I think I can better stand the love triangle in rewatching, as my worst fears about dragging Kate-Sawyer-Jack love stories haven't really materialized so far.

I thought the montage would be the end of this episode, but I was surprised to see the ep going for one more scene. Kate, Sayid and Locke meeting up with Danielle (who would have guessed) to seal the Alex deal. Perfect. That arc started in, what, episode 3x15? I'm glad TPTP didn't forget about that. (And I'm really looking forward to learn how that will get resolved.) Also, just like Hurley talking to Libby here. She died, he got to know who the murderer was, and then nothing for 10 episodes. Scenes like that are needed much more often, and not just in general character development episodes, but also in plot eps.

I wont get to watch this episode next week because SkyOne wont be showing for Virgin Media customers. Meaning also, I'll miss the last 2 episodes ever of Stargate SG1. I may just kill myself.

Im not asking for the full episode but would someone give me a link to its preview at least on YouTube or something?

March 1st, 2007, 05:00 AM
Well you should still be able to watch the complete episode on the ABC website.

I must say, I love Hurley. This episode had me laughing so many times. I even forgive it for not going anywhere.

http://spoilerslost.blogspot.com always has the promos up very fast and directly (and there can be many over the week). You can also find links to youtube promos on lost forums like www.lost-forum.com.

US and Canadian promos for the next episode:

Well you should still be able to watch the complete episode on the ABC website.Well, that website was designed for US-Americans, and others get blocked. There was a way around it for the first few weeks (by changing your PC clock), but I haven't able to get it to work by that method any longer recently. (I haven't had the patience and will to do so either, I must admit.)

You could try using a US proxy to gain access, but it's mostly trial and error.

For me it was nice to see a more fun episode, rather than the typical life, death and struggle for freedom that we've seen so far. It's also good to sort of show that Hurley could be no longer cursed, that something finally went good for him and this concept of death around Charlie is gone. Although the episode did include Sawyer, it was a great change to see the other characters such as Jin playing a bigger part, and that Sayid plus Locke will be playing a bigger part in the next episode, however less Sawyer would have been better although he fit in so well this episode.

What really got to me is that they finally told Russo (yes it's spelt wrong but i'm too lazy to learn it) that they've met her daughter. It's something to me that could have been brought up in earlier episodes but it's good to finally see her back, and that she'll play a part in the next episode and maybe the one after that.

I loved this episode - lots of Hurley, the Dharma bus, Vincent, beer, and poor "Roger" propped up next to Sawyer. Did ya notice that the keychain for the bus had a lucky rabbit's foot on it? *LOL*

Add a serious touch with Rousseau at the end - I kept waiting for her as I saw Mira Furlan's name in the credits.

Next week we get to meet eye-patch dude!

Great Episode. It was nice to see the islanders again, it was up there with the Golf Episode from season 1. I also think that the episodes central on Hurley are some of the best.

March 1st, 2007, 04:10 PM
hehe...I actually expected something to happen to Charlie after they dodged the rock - this would've tied well with Desmond's "it doesn't work like that" comment

March 1st, 2007, 04:26 PM
Even on a deserted island, Sawyer manages to cobble together a front porch upon which he can sit and pound back a case of cheap beer. He's got to be some kind of redneck savant...

March 1st, 2007, 06:17 PM
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Hurley happy and having some fun. its about time we had a lighter episode!

was it just me...or did anyone get a vibe from Sawyer that maybe he is making the wrong decision regarding Kate? he kept looking at all the couples together as he swilled his brews...looking kinda melancholy? what a putz...go and drown your woes in old piss warm beer. I agree with Thermonuclearboy when he said he is some kind of redneck savant..... :P awww poor Sawyer got his heart broken and he's too manly to let his feeling show a bit..... he doesn't need anyone... although I wouldn't kick him outta bed for leaving crumbs!:P

the song in the van going down the hill was spot on PERFECTION

that was my fave part of the ep. :p :D

i know that it's frustrating that more questions come than answers, but i think this is one of THE best written shows on tv right now. just take the scene above (my fave); superbly directed and filmed. there's characters on the show that aren't my faves, but i've *never* seen an episode yet that wasn't wonderfully written and directed and acted.

*applauds 'lost' and it's ppl in front and behind the camera*

here's to striving for excellence! and achieving it! ;)

Nice fun ep... lightened the mood of the show well and a million times better than last weeks!

Oh... and it was nice to see Cheech again - not seen him in anything for ages...

March 2nd, 2007, 08:24 AM
Dang Hurley's chicken shack got by a meteor, I guess he didn't have Sprint (green for whoever gets that joke). And I just love the name of the episode.

March 2nd, 2007, 09:35 AM
This was a fun episode. Definitely needed after all the tension the last few weeks.

Nice to see Sawyer and Kate welcomed back to the group. Wonderful to see Sawyer having fun with the guys. He really needs to get the chip off his shoulder as far as Kate's concerned though. She tried to make up and he's not gonna have it. And just because she wants to rescue Jack doesn't mean she doesn't care about Sawyer. I'd be mad if somebody didn't want to rescue Jack.

I agree that this was right up there with the "golf" episode. One of my favorites.

I liked this episode a lot.

I've been trying to get back into "Lost" after nearly abandoning it last season. And it's been a struggle. So much Sawyer/Kate/Jack angst, the usual lack of answers, little to nothing on the original characters. (Although I rather liked Juliet's backstory.)

But this episode *really* reminded me why I liked the show so much in the first season. Sawyer was great when he gets to interact with the guys. I cracked up when he called Charlie "Jiminy Cricket". :D Sawyer is indeed a much better character when he's not constantly hoisting that chip onto his shoulder.

Hurley was fun as usual and Cheech playing his dad was an inspired bit of casting. Jin was very sweet trying to pick up English and great fun to see him interacting with Hurley and the guys again. Even morose "convined he's going to die" Charlie was fun in this one. It just left me with a good feeling after I watched it - haven't had one of those episodes in awhile.

I was wondering if Kate might possibly be going to find Mira Furlan's character (whose name escapes me at the moment). And Yay! there she was she was at the end. I'm looking forward to their attempt to rescue Jack.

Do you think we can discount everything that the fortune teller said? The thing about a war coming for instance? I mean I know she was faking but a "faking" fortune teller was right in an earlier episode.

March 5th, 2007, 12:33 PM

Brilliant. :D

March 5th, 2007, 01:51 PM

Brilliant. :D

I loved this episode. I think Hurley's are the most interesting of all and the most fun.

March 5th, 2007, 06:02 PM
locke is the most interesting, but hurley is the most fun. gotta love it.

March 6th, 2007, 11:25 AM
I loved this week's ep, it was about time they lightened the frak up and got back to the people on the beach! Cheech Marin as Hurley's dad was perfect and I loved the whole boy-bonding-over-car thing that Hurley, Charlie, Jin & Sawyer had.

When they finally got that old hippie van going & were cruising around the field, the looks on their faces were just perfect and the music was just right (what was that song that kept playing, I have heard it before but can't remember the name or the band).

March 11th, 2007, 05:51 AM
I've been watching lost from th ebeginning and I love it and thought let's sneak in GW's lost threads this ep was great ! they always have something that makes you jump or say like: wow!
love this show!

August 9th, 2008, 02:36 PM
OMG! I'm so behind.
I watch a lot of TV via DVD and just haven't caught up with s3 LOST yet. shame on me

As others mentioned (over a year ago) it's gotten all angst-y and I'm not liking the tension. This episode was a much needed comic injection!

Loved it when Hurley walks up to Charlie, smack him around a bit and says "....look death in the face and say whatever dude"

August 23rd, 2008, 05:24 PM
So-so episode but I loved seeing Hurley, Sawyer, Jin and Charlie having such a great time with the van. :)
