Week 133 Spotlight: Saying goodbye to Lost
Lost may be over, but it leaves behind quite a legacy. The iconic show, which demanded a lot from its viewers, proved a complex serialized drama can work on network television. After six seasons and 121 episodes, Lost came to an end with an epic two-and-a-half hour finale.
This week Joel Murphy and Lars invite Chris Kirkman, HoboTrashcan’s resident Lost expert, on to help eulogize the show. They discuss the lasting impact of the show and the finale, including the disappointment many fans felt over the way things ended. They also look back at the show as a whole and share their thoughts on their favorite seasons and moments.
What was Lost‘s best season? Is Billy Dee Williams in LA X? Why were the commercials on Sunday so damn loud? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
Hobo Radio is the official podcast of HoboTrashcan, brought to you by The Podcast Network.
I REALLY like that graphic.
BTW – Is that you and Lars hiding behind the wreckage with Ana Lucia?!
PS – I heart bunnies. They should have their own show or something.
::punches the air:: TARDIS!!!! YEAH!!!
Also: This graphic is now my new desktop wallpaper.
OH NO… VINCENT! Oh my goodness, I knew I forgot somebody. Now I feel horrible. I’m going to have to add him now….
JeT – Thanks!
Joelle – I had to sneak the TARDIS in there somewhere. haha
Paige – That is, indeed, Joel and Lars hanging out with little miss badass.
How could you forget faithful ol’ Vincent? At least you remembered to put yourself front and center.
Joelle – Cut it out… I feel really bad already! 🙁
Regarding the actual podcast and Lost:
My initial disappointment in the finale was similar to my disappointment in some of the episodes this season, for similar reasons you all gave already. The answers they gave were given in such a way as to treat the audience as if we were stupid and could only understand the answer if someone sat us down by the campfire (or in the anteroom of the church) and spell it out for us.
Once I let it sink in a bit at the end did I realize they really did leave it open for interpretation. And thank goodness they did.
I don’t know who this mysterious mutual friend is, but I bet she’s really adorable and awesome. She probably has a really cool name, too. Just sayin’.
Everybody stop panicking… Vincent made it into the illustration. Whew!
Chris – no worries. I heard Vincent was in the alterna-graphic on SL-Lost.com this whole time.
The plane, the spiders and old smokey in the background. Nice touch.
Totaly random, but ABC released a statement saying the images at the end of the show of the beach with no life and just wreckage had no meaning. It was meant to be a transition from the emotional into the mundane for the 11 o’clock news. ;P
Thought I’d share.
Did anybody else notice the gun to Kate’s head? Genius.
