Re: Lost 5x10: "He's Our You"

You're right, the dirt hole was pre-history, the Dharma period was the well being filled in with rocks. Still, I don't think the seven of them could remove that long long tunnel full of heavy rocks by themselves. ... And as I recall Chang acted like he was expecting to find the Donkey Wheel in the opening scene. He certainly seemed to be an authority on time travel at that point.

Sorry, I was editing my post when you responded. I put in reasons why I don't think the well was totally filled up, only capped with stones.

Re: Lost 5x10: "He's Our You"

I really enjoyed this episode. Even is Ben does not die, it just adds to all the animosity that Ben carries against Sayid (probably why he engineered the killing of Sayid's wife,is this true or my theory, I lose track with this show)

My favorite part? Hurly's Dharma patch with the chef's hat in the middle. Is his Dharma station called The Griddle?

Re: Lost 5x10: "He's Our You"

I felt is was below average for the most part, then there was an unexpected twist at the end which bumped it up to Average. Yeah, it is a cheap shot because we all know that Ben is going to be revived just like Locke was, but it was still unexpected and it is good that a show can still surprise me five years in.

So next week if all the Losties are outed, would it be cool if they had to flee Dharma and shack up with the Others, or would that be too much?

To me, this episode harkened back to the days of the "art of the stall." For example, Kate's statement that she didn't know why everybody else came back but she knew why she came back. But of course she didn't go on to explain exactly what that was. Typical LOST bullshit.
It was abundantly clear to me that she was talking about Sawyer. Seemed abundantly clear to him, too.
Well I guess I"m just dense then, because it wasn't clear to me. You may be right, but I'm not convinced it's that simple, if for no other reason than we don't know what happpened to Aaron. It looks like to me there's more going on with Kate than just a desire to come back and bone Sawyer.

Actually I felt the same way. And if the director hasn't directed an episode since S1 that might help explain it.

Re: Lost 5x10: "He's Our You"

Not excellent, but it's Lost - so it's another piece of the puzzle.

Are we supposed to start finding the Dharma-ites unsympathetic? Their vote to kill Sayid just struck me as another step closer to coldblooded - especially Ethan's mom. (surprised she didn't raise her hand and then the baby's hand) So when the purge comes - will we shed a tear (except for Horace)?

Cool to see the guy from Blade Runner! The teepee, the victrola, the sugarcube to make Sayid trip out. Best Dharma/Others cameo since Diana Scarwid!

Ann Arbor? What's up with that? I thought the HQ on the mainland was Portland.

Y'know, Hurley finally seems happy now. That's always good to see. He's been thru a lot.

That was an amazing role, and I'm still under the impression they had a falling out with the actress or something, because it looked to me like they were setting her up for something big and then dropped the ball.

Another Lost classic. How does this show keep churning them out at such a volume?

This certainly explains Ben's obsession with the island. The island will resurrect him - wow.

probably because we're nearing the end of the season, let alone the show, so they keep uppin' the ante

Interesting that you point that out becasue it's struck me that that between the Others/hostiles. Dharma, Ben, Sayid, Widmore, they all seem to be a bunch of murders. Very few "good guys" in this show.

Re: Lost 5x10: "He's Our You"

Above average. Although, not quite as solidly above average as the previous episodes. Still, an enjoyable hour of TV.

Sawyer right now is mainly interested in using his conman skills to maintain the status quo, his lifestyle in the community. That was set up before, although some doubted that was his main motivation. I think it's clear now that it is, and it'll obviously lead to conflict down the road. They're drawing up the lines now. I'm not sure about this plot thread. Seems like it could be make work to generate plot without necessarily moving things forward. But, we'll see. So far so good, it depends how far they go with this.

As no doubt has been mentioned (but I haven't read the thread yet), the most hilarious part was Sayid telling the absolute truth but the whacko thinking he used too much truth serum!

Young Ben can't be dead can he?! Are they setting up a paradox? Or is young Ben not fatally wounded? That would seem to be a bit of a copout at this point. We'll see!

That's a good thought, and I've been wondering "Just what is Ben's deal?" But if they go that route, then how does that fit in with his surgery that jack performed?
