I love the "emotional" theme from this show. Seriously some of the best new music out there, from a symphonic standpoint.

Seriously, listen to this shit. It's the very first thing you hear in the song. The opening piano.



That is so LOST. Of course, the song predates the show by like 12 years.

Yes it is similar.
I remember hearing that when it first came out and seeing Tori play it live.
If anything Tori borrowed it from Peter Hamill.

I've never liked Tori Amos so I'll pass.

That's weird, I never noticed it. And I'm the Tori fan around here.

Man, that song is always such a jolt. Takes me back to such a specific time and place so fast...kind of like being on a island moving through time.

Well, I'd say that that was about half of a really good episode, and half of a regular-ass episode. You've gotta accept the clumsier-than-Star Wars exposition, because that's sadly how weekly TV works, in the States, and that was my only major complaint. Otherwise, I'm just sort of disappointed that this wasn't at all the episode that last week's previews suggested to me that it would be. ...And, again--a pointless, needless, and sort of momentum-sapping REFUSAL to answer even the most trivial of questions.

Also, PLEASE tell me that Captain No Line isn't the unexpected, out-of-the-blue "fan favorite" death that the producers confirmed with either EW or TV Guide (can't remember which)...?

Oh, and yet another almost certainly unintentional reference to U2, with the whole "with or without you, bitch" bit.

No, I don't think he's included.

Alex

I was SO hoping Ben was going to die Eko-style. Didn't Eko's dead brother appear to him right before smokey beat him down?

There's nothing I love more on Lost than the Ben/Locke power struggle; it's a constant bout of oneupsmanship, and when Locke has the upper hand I get all giddy. It appears from here on out that Ben might be deferring?

As for the Desmond/Penny thing, it played exactly how I thought it logically would, though I was worried the producers would try something surprising. But as soon as Ben said "Tell Desmond I'm sorry" I knew he didn't actually kill Penny, as it would have been too obvious.

Not as great an episode as I was hoping for (I think everyone was expecting BEST LOST EVAR OMG!!!!!1!!!1!), but this was pretty damned great. I'm bummed that we have to hang out with the Lame-O's again next week, and wish they would do another cross-cutting episode.

Wow this show keeps reminding me why its the best show on television. Last night reminded me of that once more. The entire tomb scenes were amazing. I want so much more of that element. Seeing all the egyptian hieroglphics all over and the one showing the smoke monster. amazing. And this new dead/alive John Locke is amazing....love it.

It was nice to get away from all the 1977 crap going on, and bring the focus back to the present with Ben and Locke. I thought the flashbacks were very well done, and liked how they handled the scene with Desmond and Penny.

One of the better episodes this season.

I was actually really disappointed with this episode.

Best moment for me was when Ben, expecting the smoke monster, tells Sun what's about to come out of the jungle is something he can't control and John Locke walks out instead. That was brilliant.

Good shit.

Loved when Linus shot Caesar out of the blue. "Are you looking for this?" BLAM!

Definitely a nice, suspenseful sequence down there in the catacombs under the temple. Couldn't help but be literally on the edge of my seat when the smoke starting pouring out of those holes and inching towards Linus. The payoff, though? Eh...I was expecting something a little better than the kinda-cheesy flashing images of his past with Alex. But, whatever.

And, yeah, I guess Linus has to be Locke's bitch for at least a little while. That should be fun.
