The LOST Ramble ON Cast is now up on Talkshoe and will be up on The Lost Podcasting Network shortly. Here’s the description , on Talkshoe, of the episode, recorded right after The LOST Revisited Now podcast of “He’s Our You” concluded. ( 3+ hours)
Welcome to the Lost Ramble On Cast. Heath & Ms. Wendy have open the invitation to all their podcaster friends to join them in a improv Lost Round Table. After they recorded their podcast of “He’s Our You”, they started another podcast right after called Lost Ramble ON, where anyone and everyone can call in and express their views and theories about Lost. Last week their podcast was 8 hours, so hence the reason for the seperate podcast. They continue the “He’s Our You” discussion and add these topics : The Incident, The Purge, Faraday leaving the island, and much much more. At the end Heath tries, from memory, to rattle off the season 1 episodes in order. He fails bad! Heath and Ms. Wendy are joined by : Curt Yanko (Black Rock Podcast), Nancy Drew (Lost Aholics/Black Rock Live), Anna in Indiana(Jacob’s Cabin), Donald (Donald is Lost), Mr. Payne (No Payne No Glory), Axel Foley (Lost Mythos Theory cast), Glen (Star Wars Fan), TinyTheBodyGuard and Aaron (Not Claire’s son but A-Hustler from Jersey Citee) which is his first appearance on another podcast! Denise (Jacob’s Cabin) joins the many redshirts in the chat-room as we explore Lost. The Ramble On Lost cast will be a podcast every few weeks that brings together all podcasters and fans into one podcast. Enhancing the Lost community.
If you want to email us : Heath’s is firstname.lastname@example.org or me ( Ms. Wendy) at email@example.com.
And again, big thanks to all those who have participated and/or listened. 🙂
For starters, (IMO) one of the tensest episodes to date.
And you just knew someone wasn’t going to make it out of it alive.
It just happened to be Ben this time… or should I say IN this time?
I am going to attempt to categorize this episode in “Bill and Ted” speak… The 80’s meets The 70’s….Whoa!
Sayid kills a chicken with his bare hands…but he lures his prey first. Much like Nathan/Goodwin in Season Two. Similar scenario to Mr. Eko killing for his younger brother, Yemi and Sawyer killing Cooper for Locke. Born killers or circumstantial? Also, another broken neck on the show. What’s the deal with all the broken necks?
Ben made Sayid believe that he had some kind of noble purpose in his life. Fooled ya! So sorry about that. Turns out Ben was just using someone for personal gain. ( Imagine that !) In this case, to kill the majority of Widmore’s flunkies, who may or may not truly be responsible for Nadia’s death. Which still doesn’t answer the question of who is The Economist. And seeing that Widmore gave Locke a beyond current telephone to contact him with ( Just dial the # 23) , I’m guessing Charles is A-OK with technology. But Jacob isn’t. Were these people Ben had Sayid kill Jacob’s people and not Widmore’s? I’m thinking that Sayid ” I believe what I can see” Jarrah is not going to be as quickly convinced about seeking vengeance on ” The Invisible Man”.
Hurley’s working in the kitchen making Dharma Ham Flavored Waffles with dipping sauce… informing Kate and Jack of the obvious… Sawliet or Jawyer… I’m not sure what term we’re using yet. Is it just me, or was that Locke’s almost tour guide from the ” Walkabout” episode walking over, then sitting down, at a table diagonal from them? Hey, who knows…it’s LOST! 😉
Good ol’ Roger Workman… what a sweetheart, huh? So, we get a longer glimpse into Ben’s sad past. Roger was not only an alcoholic, neglectful and verbally destructive, the elder Linus likes to throw in a beating, if the mood strikes him ( Please, Mood…you have my permission to strike him 🙂 ) And it clearly affects Sayid…but it does not dissuade him from what he believes is his “purpose”.
A lot of physicality in the episode… Sawyer urging Sayid to punch him…and vice versa… but that was to keep Sayid safe.
Sayid getting tasered….I’m gonna say, in the gut. Yeah, I’m sticking with that answer… 🙂
Sayid takes a boot to the face by Ilana. I think that move in is the hitman/spy equivalent to the ” Ol’ Wookie Prisoner Gag” … that was so effectively used against Aldo in Season Three’s ” Not in Portland”.
Sayid walked right into the arms of Ilana… only to be escorted onto a flight to Guam to avenge the death of Mr. Avileno. Sayid doesn’t want to get on board , once he gets a load of who are his traveling companions. Ilana offers the idea of getting a rabbit’s foot to ward off Sayid’s sudden “superstition”. It’s About Bunnies!
Sayid is taken by LeFleur, Horace, Phil and Radzinsky ( aka Stu) to see Larry…I’m sorry…Oldham, the Dharma’s “Medicine Man” , of sorts. His pharmacy is strictly of the “bathtub” variety. Sayid is given a sugar cube with “truth telling serum” on it. It worked…but they didn’t know what he was talking about…thankfully for Sawyer and the rest of our Losties.
Watching this scene made me think if the stuff that Sayid was detailing actually gave them “ideas”about what to build in the future. 🙂
Town Counsel Meeting about what to do with the ” Hostile”. Stu wants to “stew” him. Amy at first looks concerned, then quickly changes her tune and says ” Kill him. What about the children.” I am now in the camp of theorist that Amy is short for Amelia, the older woman at Juliet’s book club. ( Tale of Two Cities, Season 3) . Add almost 30 years to her…. it fits. This would make her…an Other. The question is…has she been one all along, not just since ” The Purge” to come?
Ben is the one to get Sayid to leave his life of house building to do his bidding again! And of course, Ben wasn’t sure what happened to Locke, but he thinks it was murder! You don’t say!! Interestingly, the usually well pressed, dapper Ben, is seen wearing a wrinkled old blue striped shirt under a beige blazer… a shirt just like….Christian Shepard. “You’re a killer, Sayid”…very reminiscent of ” You’re the killer, Ana Lucia” in Season Two. Fate vs Choice? Also, on the wall behind Sayid are two handsaws , facing opposite directions. One has a light handle, one has a dark handle.
Flaming microbus, started by ..little Ben? Much like Walt burning the raft ( Ben was also sporting a stripped shirt just like Walt used to wear) Fire was also used in diversion by Charlie when he took Aaron ( Fire + Water, Season Two) and smoke by Danielle ( to also take Aaron , Exodus , Season One) and by the Losties ( Live Together, Die Alone, Season Two) Ben wants to join the Hostiles, with Sayid’s help. Sayid tells him that his father was a hard man too. Ben replies ” I hated him” . To quote Hurley ” Um…what?” *Unless I heard it wrong, Ben speaks of Roger in past tense. Why? Let the theories begin! 🙂
*UPDATE I did hear it wrong. It was “I hate it here” … Thanks to rewatch on better tv and confirmation from Capcom. I’ve GOT to get a DVR or something! Tube tv & VHS… you’re lettin’ me down! 😉
Sayid, like that chicken , lures little Ben to his death. And there is no question of whether he was shot. The question remains, ” Will Ben survive?” And from that inquiry, other questions emerge…
Will the Island heal Ben?
Will Jack operate on Ben again?
If he is dead, how does this affect the story?
If he is not dead, how will this affect the story?
And in the end…maybe ” He’s Our You” really isn’t about the commonalities between Sayid and Dr. Sugar Cubes… but the ” He” is really Ben.
Heath and I will be discussing ” He’s Our You ” Episode 10 of Season 5 of LOST on Friday, March 27th, 2009 at 8:00EST/ 5:00PST on Talkshoe . We’ll be chatting about the episode: Thoughts, theories, finds, Lost Alums, etc. You can stop by Live or listen soon after, either on Talkshoe or The LOST Podcasting Network.
If you have any thoughts/theories, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we’ll try to read them on the podcast. Thanks!
Again, thank you to everyone who stopped by for the last show. 8)
UPDATE We had another “LOST Ramble On Cast” after the show this week. It will be up on Talkshoe on this Sunday the 29th and , I believe, Monday the 30th, on The Lost Podcasting Network. Many people stopped by to chat and theorize including…
Axel and Aaron from The Lost Mythos Podcast
Mr. Payne from the No Payne, No Glory Podcast
Curt Yanko and Nancy Drew from The Black Rock podcast
Anna and Denise from Anna in Indiana Lost Podcast
Glen , epic LOST watcher ( Seasons 1-5 in 3 weeks?…There should be some kind of prize for that! 🙂 )
And , of course, Donald from the Donald is LOST Podcast ( and our part time Producer 😉 )
And many , many MORE ( Go, chatroom ) ! 8)
We’ve all experienced some kind of bout with social uneasiness. And LOST is not the exception to the rule.
The hits just kept on comin’ in this episode. Lets check out the lineup.
Frank Lapidus: Lands the plane of the “Runway for Aliens” … successfully. 8)
His co-pilot recognized Hurley as an O6er… but no one else?
Co-pilot warned him “You’re gonna rip us apart!”. The plane ripped apart the
first time without him flying it… Hmmm I wonder…
Poor co-pilot, not so lucky. Impaled by a tree branch like Naomi… with much worse results.
Stayed with Sun because he doesn’t trust Ben and still concerned about his passengers
Sun and he visit with Christian in a Dharma ” Ghost town”
Sun Kwon: She was “that woman” who left with Frankie L.
She is desperate enough in finding Jin that she would trust Benjamin Linus
On second thought… she lied… and she knows her way around an oar! Sweet dreams, Ben.
She told Frank that what was moving the trees was probably some animal… Vincent?
We see black smoke while she and Frank are standing near an open door talking to Jack’s “dad”
She and Frank hear The Whispers too.
Smoke + Whispers + creaky door + Shadowy Shephard = Brrrr
She gets to scope out Jin in his ” Dharma Initiative Class of ’77” photo. Nice…
Christian Shephard : He really likes that blue striped shirt, doesn’t he?
Warns Sun and Frank that he’s sorry that they’ve got a long journey
Not a very good caretaker. Maybe Jack can give him some ” Workman” pointers
Check out Donald is LOST blog … looks like he wasn’t alone when Sun and Frank
Benjamin Linus : Frank asked him where all the other O6ers went he replied ” How would I know?” I might be taking a big risk…
but I think he knows. 🙂
So, we partly know how he ends up in the Hydra Infirmary… partly
His arm seems to have healed very quickly. Back in the saddle again?
How did he end up sneaking up on Sun? Is he like those shoeless kids
Eko and Jin saw in Season 2?
What ever happened to those trackless tikes anyways?
What was that crack he said to Frank about a pilot taking care of his passengers?
Does he have dirt on Lapidus too?
Likes to bring prisoners sandwiches with the choice of condiments instead of
mindlessly applying them with no regard to taste and/or allergies. See… he cares. 🙂
Jack Shephard : He is Dharma material… as a workman
He had a nice meeting with Juliet
He had a not so nice meeting with Sawyer… and he chose the humble route… change?
He was almost giddy, sitting with “Marvin Candle” , star of The Swan Hatch video 3 of 6. 🙂
He was awesomely nerdy in that blue polo shirt 8)
Kate Austen: The Mechanic
Stared at Sawyer … he stared back
Stared down Juliet… stared down right back
Thought she was going to be on the next sub out of there because of “missing”
paperwork…but Jules came through.
Had good, snappy line about Ms. Hawking not “letting Jack in ” on the fact they’d
be going back in time 30 years.
Hurley Reyes : ( About being in 1977) ” Ummm…what?”
( About Jin) ” Dude! Your English is awesome!”
(About nicknames) ” Kong? I actually missed that.”
( About hiding out from the DI) ” I vote for not camping.”
(About their O6 friend getting “busted” by the DI) ” I guess we found Sayid.”
( About the DI’s greeting) ” Nama..what?”
Jim “Sawyer” LaFleur : Likes to read before saving everybody’s…hash ( This week’s title, anyone?)
Wears large sweatshirts with bulldogs on them
When it comes to security, he runs a “tight ship”
I think he is “remembering” what Kate looks like now
Told by Jack that Locke is dead. Will he still be waiting for John to come back?
Juliet Burke : Finds out Horace and Amy want to name there baby Ethan. If it’s the Ethan 1) Why is his name Rom?
2) How did he go from DI to Other and 3) Was he saved from ,or involved in, The Purge?
If Jim and she were to have a baby , ” The timing’s got to be right.”
Jin Kwon : If he wants you to find a plane that might not be there… DO IT!
Daniel Faraday : GONE?! Wonder if it has to do with The Orchid dig… and that crazy donkey wheel?
Miles Straume : Enos is a pretty good security guard
Sayid Jarrah : I have a feeling that he might cause a “disruption” in the space/time continuum… and I don’t think it will be over mustard.
Radzinsky in the flame, designing The Swan… and watching The Muppets 8)
” Ride, Captain, Ride” by Blues Image (1970) playing… singing about a “mystery ship”. On Lost= Black Rock?
“Dharma Lady” by Geronimo Jackson also playing. Hope they’re not a One Hit Wonder
Did Ilana say the name “Sarah” when Caesar tried to revive her?
* UPDATE* According to Closed Caption, she says “Jarrah” (Sayid) . ( Thank you Anna In Indiana and Glen/Hurley’s in My Top 7) 🙂
The 3 outriggers…again on the Hydra Island
Looks like the missing from the plane are in the past… The other passengers present or future?
Repeat words and phrases : 2 “Safes” and 1 ” Got your back” (Note to self: start making graphs)
14J is DI security talk for ” We gotta Hostile!”
325 on Radzinsky’s grid… 325 was what Michael and Walt had to take to “find rescue”
Sawyer takes off glasses with left AND right hand when he sees his friends from the O6. Error or mirror image ( I’m talking to you, Nancy Drew 🙂 ) ?
“The Incident” might be 1977 and 2007 Benjamin Bunnies #15 having a “chance meeting”?
Sawyer and Juliet own a giant, orange ceramic cat. Yup, it’s the 70’s alright! 😉
