Lost WTF of the Week: Nice Package

Richard Lawson · 03/31/10 09:22AM

At the end of a Jin/Sun-centric episode, last night we got a surprise visit from an old friend. What's this person doing back on our radar? Why was the entire episode, in essence, named after them? Spoiler Alert, duh.

Sure, he may be uncomfortable with the impoverished, but we should just be proud of former President Bush for making is through this whole visit to Haiti without one of his trademark hilarious verbal goof-ups, like "we don't torture.")

A Couple Alex Chilton Songs

Pareene · 03/18/10 05:04PM

Alex Chilton is dead. His old band, Big Star, made three perfect albums. There are a thousand stories of excess and studio-trashing and general Memphis insanity. I just wanted to play you some songs of his that I like.

Lost WTF of the Week: Uh Oh, Evil Locke Has Mommy Issues

Lost WTF of the Week: Sayid Did a Bad, Bad Thing

Richard Lawson · 03/03/10 10:31AM

Lost WTF of the Week: Who's the Kid?

Richard Lawson · 02/17/10 09:48AM

As this crazypot show winds down, we are getting some semblance of answers. (We know who the Smoke Monster is!) But we're also getting a few (OK, many) new questions. Like, who was that kid that scared Devil Locke so?

Finally, What Lost Is Really About

Lost is full of many mysteries, all perplexing paradoxes and symbolism. At last here is a video that boils the show down to its bare essence. This, dear uninitiated Lost-phobes, is what you've been missing all these years.
