Would having Ethan meet Locke before they crashed on the island screw anything up? He did, after all, infiltrate the camp and found out who everyone was.

Maybe they should've had it been Goodwin since he only met the Tailies. Of course, Locke never met him so he couldn't have said what he said either.

So have they learned nothing about opening credits ruining surprises?
I'm sure they wish they could do no credits. Union rules though. I agree that it's lame but there's no way around it or I'm sure they would have figured out a better solution by now.

End credits? Lots of shows put the guest stars at the end, not the beginning.

Anyway, it's easy enough not to read the credits.

Nothing beats the season 2 opener with the hatch.
Ditto, that was still an all time amazement because in no way was anyone expecting that.

Meanwhile these episodes are fully sic. Lost is back, I can't wait til next week. Frakkin' awesome.

Re: Lost 5x01: "Because You Left" & 5x02: "The Lie"

I definitely did not think that Locke was invisible to the Dharma soldiers. He just used his jungle cunning to ambush them.

The whispers being time-slipping people? Fascinating. I never thought of that before. That could definitely work. Though the whispers almost always preceded the Others appearing (as recently as the S4 finale when they ambushed somebody).

The number one question I have now is how long do we have to wait before we see the characters running around with the Dharma Initiative, infiltrating their works and whatnot. Hopefully soon!

Re: Lost 5x01: "Because You Left" & 5x02: "The Lie"

Above average for both. It's been so long since I've seen Lost that it was a struggle to remember who some people were and what was going on. I undoubtedly missed a few things because of that. Overall, I like the new feel of the series. It's really very different now. De facto time travel occuring and what feels like a smaller and smaller portion actually occruing on the island. That works ok for me, but I wonder how the general public will react, particularly to the more and more prominent sci fi aspects.

So, we've got a timer in place for them to get back to the island. I just hope not too much screen time is wasted trying to get the O6 together. That could be a bit tedious. Oh, here's Hurley but oh, now he's in jail. Etc. We'll see. Mostly good though!

Re: Lost 5x01: "Because You Left" & 5x02: "The Lie"

WOW, what an episode - my wife and I tried to remember for about an hour where we remember Fionula Flanagan's character from, and with a bit of help from the Lostpedia found the following:

Fionula Flanagan's character - she's from the episode "Flashes Before Your Eyes" (Season 3) - she's the 'shopkeeper' in the ring store who tells Desmond NOT to buy the ring for Penny, saying to him that it's his original fate not to buy the ring, which ends up leading him to the island and turning the key - She mentioned that if he doesn't do those things that "every single one of us is dead".

My guess about the island? Not only is it jumping in time, but also in location as well (hint: the pendulum marking various locations on a large map)...

It has to be moving in space, since we saw it physically disappear in the S4 finale. Also, in this episode didn't Alpert or Faraday say that the Island isn't moving in time but the people on it are?

Faraday said the island is moving or the Losties/Freighties are. And he said both are equally likely. All we can tell at this point is that the island moved (possibly more than once) at least in location if not time, and the survivors are probably the only ones skipping around in time.

Mrs. Hawking from "Flashes Before Your Eyes" in S3. She was sort of Desmond's tour guide in time travel from the jewelry shop.

Did anyone else think there is a significance to them showing Sawyer's foot all messed up? There has to be something to that because it looked mighty messed up. Maybe he loses a toe?....Hmmm.

Re: Lost 5x01: "Because You Left" & 5x02: "The Lie"

^^^ That's a good thought which, now that you mention it, seems like it has to be significant. I'd be very surprised if there wasn't something to it!

Re: Lost 5x01: "Because You Left" & 5x02: "The Lie"

After last night's episodes, I've come to the conclusion that I'm:

A) too old;
B) too dumb;
C) too unimaginative or;
D) all of the above

to truly understand and enjoy this show. This show has just totally gone over my head. I don't know why I watch it anymore, it's like a train wreck that I can't turn away from.

Hey, fair enough. I, for one, loved it but after it was over last night it occurred to me that there would probably be a shit-ton of people like you who just won't dig it. Wouldn't be surprised if the ratings suffer as a result.

But, whatever, they're gonna finish it up regardless so I'm cool with it.
