Just watched another good Season 4 episode: Small Potatoes. Worth it alone for the large chunk of the episode in which David Duchovny plays some chump who is pretending to be Agent Mulder. They have a "practicing in front of the mirror" scene that is pretty great.

Detective Munch makes an appearance in the Lone Gunman beginnings episode "Unusual Suspects." Odd since this was a Fox show and Homicide is an NBC show. I looked it up on Wikipedia, and he actually made quite a few crossover appearances:

    * Law & Order - four episodes: "Charm City", "Baby, It's You", "Sideshow (Part 1)", and "Entitled (Part 2)"
    * The X-Files - one episode: "Unusual Suspects"
    * The Beat - one episode: "They Say It's Your Birthday"
    * Law & Order: Trial by Jury - one episode: "Skeleton (Part 2)"
    * Arrested Development - one episode: "Exit Strategy"
    * The Wire - one episode: "Took"

Season 5, Episode 5: A Post-Modern Prometheus. Excellent episode.

Season 5, Episode 12: Bad Blood. Awesome Rashomon style story. Very funny.

I love it when folks like David Lynch direct stuff like television commercials, cuz it really shows if the person knows what the hell they're doing in (in this instance, he most certainly does)...

Quote
OK SO HERES HOW LOST ENDS

JACK BEN DESMOND AND HURLEY STAY ON THE ISLAND. JACK MAKES HURLEY THE NEW JACOB.

BEN IS SECOND IN COMMAND. THERE IS A POOP JOKE.

LAPIDUS AND THE REST GET ON THE PLANE AND FLY AWAY

JACK, SUCCUMBING TO HIS KNIFE WOUND BY FLOCKE,DIES IN THE BAMBOO FIELD HE WOKE UP IN IN THE PILOT.

BUT SEE, NONE OF THAT SHIT EVEN MATTERS

BECAUSE

THE ALTVERSE IS A HEAVEN CREATED BY THEM. THEIR ISLAND CONSCIOUSNESSES ARE TRANSPORTED TO THEIR ALT SELVES. OR SOMETHING.

NO WALT. NO TAWERET STATUE. NO ANSWERS TO ANY OF THAT OTHER DUMB SHIT.

having your own little marathon of the show is probably the best way to watch it. i went through seasons 1-5 during the holiday season and i dont think i would have had the patience for it otherwise.

I tend to prefer shows in big chunks rather than having the narrative broken up over long gaps of time.

It's the same reason I tend to buy Trade Paperbacks over issues of comics or only read discontinued titles/author runs that I can get in bulk.

I heard Jack has to fuck the island to save the show or something. Kind of wish I had watched this because it sounds like it was a laugh-a-minute.

... Haven't watched the whole thing. Not sure if there's some big joke at the end, or if its just a legit list of unanswered questions. Though it does articulate what drives me nuts about the show and its fans. So if I made a television program that had all this random shit that doesn't even have to be answered in the end, will I get tons of viewers/be considered a genius as well?

I realize that I'm over simplifying the situation, and perhaps Lost had some other amazing aspects that I'm totally ignoring. Then again, I can't recall the last time anyone ever mentioned the superb acting or whatnot.
