LOST: Reliving The Glory Days - Tabula Rasa (begin abloobloobloo)

SPOILER! THEY'RE NOT FUCKING DEAD!

Current Episode: Season 1 Episode 3 - Tabula Rasa

September 22nd, 2004. Almost ten years ago Oceanic Flight 815 was lost over the ocean while making a routine flight from Sydney to LAX. We remember the 8 suriviors who made worldwide news when they mysteriously appeared later, and how they suddenly disappeared, never to be heard again. Now, nearly 10 years later JJ Abrams in partnership with Netflix and Hulu Plus brings you a retelling of the journey of the passengers of flight 815. While some may call it pure speculation and the raving of a couple of no tallent hack writers, if you look deeper you will find the harrowing story of real human compassion, kindness, and growth.

So this is how this will work, every week we're going to watch an episode of Lost, keeping up as much as we can with Giant Bomb's Patrick Klepeck and some other guy as they release their rewatch podcast.

The rules as far as spoilers are up to you guys. I'd be a fan of keeping things inside spoilers beyond the current episode, but that may make it much less fun.

I'll edit in some links later, my phone is an awful place to do this.

No I don't.

    The pilot for this show is still one of the best I've ever seen out of televisual entertainment

    I've only ever seen the first few episodes of Lost. This will be a perfect way for me to finally watch it! I don't mind spoilers.

    One of the things i'm looking forward to in a weird way on this rewatch is because of you guys

    I only really started reading the forums when the finale was coming up so i really just sort of jumped in on that thread and learning about Lost points and i noticed how "goddamit Kate" seemed to be a running thing

    And then i thought about all the things that Kate had actually done during the series and i thought to myself

    "Man fuck Kate"

    Like

    just the whole immediate, post-crash beach set piece

    with the still powered engine going on and off

    Jack waking up and wandering in a stupor

    just the raw surge of confusion and panic from everyone

    it's a fucking brilliant pilot episode

    The pilot left me with the feeling that the show could be absolutely anything. So good.

    No I don't.

    Actually, that whole first season was just perfect. Nothing about it was sub par, and even without the rest of the series the first season is well worth watching.

    The pilot is outstanding.

    But Walkabout is when the show sunk its teeth in me and I had to watch the whole thing.

    I discovered I do have the first season available to me, but nothing past that. I'll see how long I can keep this up until life or distractions interfere. It's only an hour a week though so that's unlikely. I will have to find out how to get the next seasons, though. Maybe the library will have them.

    The Pilot is just amazing, though. Everything about it. All the little stuff in it too that only becomes more important after seeing the entire thing, like when Locke is explaining backgammon to Walt.

    I mean, the entire last sequence in it is absolutely amazing.

    And the music is just so good.

    Walkabout is when the show gets into gear character wise

    I'm not sure any show in history has done flashbacks as effectively as Lost for character development

    Short of Walter White, I think John Locke might have the 2nd best character arc of any character in television.

    John is probably the better character of the show but he's not my favorite.

    That honor probably goes to Desmond or Sayid

    I'm a little curious to see if my attitude on Kate changes.

    Because I suspect my previous feelings may have been tainted by a bit of misogyny.

    I still put on the Lost soundtrack when I'm coding or drawing.

    Kate isn't a well handled character

    I think the actress does a fine job, but there are problems just with her writing at its base level

    I'll also never forgive anyone who gives Abrams credit or shit for this show. This thing wasn't his baby.

    I am currently going through Lost at a rate of one episode a week

    I was doing one a night, almost got through season one, then I made a new friend and she hadn't seen Lost and I was like WHOA WHAT THE FUCK so now we're all gathering to do an episode every Sunday night

    We just finished Walkabout after Game of Thrones on Sunday night

    Anyways this is still my favorite show ever

    By a large, large margin

    Especially because Jack has, arguably, the best arc in the series

    You know when Jack does that thing

    In the season four pilot

    And it could have been really bad but it wasn't

    I don't think I've ever cursed at a TV so much

    I was just all "FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK. YOU."

    I feel like transposing Jack's character arc on a female lead wouldn't be too hard, and I feel like Kate's actor probably could have handled it

    But yeah no a deeper focus on her arc as is would have been a mess.
