LOST: On Location - Episode 3

I just want to warn you that this week's video is pretty minor considering there wasn't many O'ahu locations in "Jughead."  But, I hope you enjoy it anyway!

LOST Review: Season 5, Episode 3 - "Jughead"

Wow.  Who would have thought that one of the most revealing episodes ever would come in the second week of Season 5?

"Jughead" starts off with the birth of Desmond and Penny's son Charlie in the Philippines.  I presume Charlie is named after Charlie Pace, the man who saved Desmond's life.  Charlie/Charles could also be a nod to Penny's father Charles Widmore.

When Desmond spoke to his son about the island that he left long ago, I thought he was talking about The Island, not Great Britain. :)

Back on The Island, we found out that the year our heroes have time-traveled to is 1954 (50 years in the past) and that the "soldiers" are actually The Others apparently led by Richard Alpert (although he does say something about having superiors and a chain of command). And we finally have confirmation that a young Charles Widmore was once on The Island.  I love when Widmore says, "You think he knows the island better than I do?"  I was literally saying, "YES!"

Back in 2007, Desmond finds out a connection between Daniel Faraday and Charles Widmore.  So, it seems that EVERYONE is converging in on Los Angeles.  The Oceanic 6 is already there plus Ben and Ms. Hawking.

Speaking of Ms. Hawking, the enhanced episode of "The Lie" says her first name is Eloise.  Could Ellie on The Island in 1954 be Eloise Hawking?  Going further out on a limb: could Ms. Hawking be Daniel Faraday's mother?  Daniel named his rat Eloise.  Widmore says Daniel's mother is in Los Angeles, which is coincidentally where Ben meets up with Ms. Hawking.  Just something to think about as we push ahead this season.

I'm also intrigued by the Compass Time Loop.  Future Locke gives 1954 Alpert a compass from Future Alpert.  Alpert later shows a 5-year-old Locke the same compass which he doesn't recognize.  Locke grows up and crashes on The Island.  Ben moves The Island which sets Locke traveling through time where he gets the compass from Alpert and goes back to 1954 to give it back to Alpert.  I have a headache.

The episode ends with Charlotte going full-Minkowski on Daniel.  This doesn't look like it will end well.

Here's how I rank the episodes this season so far:

1) Jughead
2) Because You Left
3) The Lie

Unfortunately, no obvious public O'ahu locales in the episode this week.  I'll be keeping my eyes peeled every week for a chance to do another "On Location" video.

LOST: On Location - Episode 2

While I'm gathering my thoughts on Season 5, I decided to do another "On Location" video at two shooting locations that were revealed in the Season 5 premiere episodes "Because You Left" and "The Lie." I hope you enjoy it!

Set your DVR!  The two-hour season 5 premiere of "Lost" is tonight on ABC.  Here in Hawaii, it starts at 7 p.m. with a recap show.  At 8 p.m. there will be two episodes in a row!

I might post something later tonight, but I will most likely post my thoughts tomorrow.

Happy LOST watching!

LOST Celebrity Playlists on iTunes

I love iTunes. Every Tuesday, there's always FREE songs and videos to be downloaded. Plus, there's been a lot of LOST content this year.

Now, LOST has been included in the Celebrity Playlists section [iTunes link] with Evangeline Lilly, Naveen Andrews, and, you guessed it, Michael Emerson! They wrote a comment for each song they picked. It's interesting to see the different musical leanings amongst the cast. Would love to see more playlists from the cast and crew.

Michael Emerson Sheds Light On Season 5 (SPOILERS!) has a new interview with LOST actor Michael Emerson who plays Benjamin Linus. I have to warn you that there are spoilers.  It's a good read, though.

The picture on the left is from the LOST season 3 premiere on Waikiki Beach a few years ago.

LOST: Already Home (Season 4 Spoilers)

I just made a LOST fan video based on the Season 4 finale.  The song is called "Already Home" performed by Ha-Ash and Brandi Carlile.  I thought the song really fit the theme of LOST.  If you haven't seen the Season 4 finale this video definitely has SPOILERS.  It's not my best editing job but I had some fun with it.  Click on the video while it is playing to go to YouTube to view it in the high quality mode.

Review Of LOST: Season 5 Premiere just posted the BuddyTV review of the Season 5 premiere of LOST which will air on January 21st on ABC.

Thankfully, there are no spoilers in the review. Evidently, the two-hour season premiere will be two episodes, each one hour long.

Here's my favorite quote from the review:

 Based on these first two episodes, Lost is back to “Oh My Effing God!” status.
I thought Season 4 was at least the second best season of the series (behind the power and mystery of Season 1).  Season 5 will probably have a similar feel to the previous season since it will have only 17 episodes compared with the first three seasons which had anywhere from 22 to 24 episodes.  Season 4 will probably end up being the shortest season with 13 episodes.

Less episodes means something BIG will happen every week.  No more "filler episodes.

I hate to get my expectations up high, but after last season's finale (which was the best season finale so far in my opinion) the new season of LOST promises a lot.  We'll see if it delivers.
