The Lost Rewatch Podcast #114 - 'Across the Sea'

Ladies and gentlemen, it's been a long and winding road to get here, but I think it's fair to say that we're now truly, undeniably in the end game of this epic project. We have had the time of our lives debating, laughing, rejoicing and criticising but it's very soon that this bad boy will be coming to a close.

But we're not quite there yet, and we feel confident in saying that for the Lost Rewatch Podcast, the best is yet to come, something never more true than in this week's episode, which is arguably the jewel in the crown of the whole podcast.

This week, in doing commentary for 'Across the Sea' we're finally coming face to face with one of the most unique, divisive and just plain important episodes of the whole show, an episode on which we flash back further than ever before to an hour of TV that many felt was 'off topic' upon its initial airing. We'll be discussing whether or not that's a fair assessment, but one thing that won't be up for discussion is that, like the episode or not, 'Across the Sea' pretty much sets out the stall of the creative team in terms of what aspects of the story they want to prioritise and focus on in its final countdown. It's not an exaggeration to say that your reaction to 'Across the Sea' may very well determine your perception of the entire series as a whole, and we give the episode it's due in a podcast that might be described by some as 'epic', by others as 'really bloody long'.

Either way, it's time to let this bitch out of the bag! We hope you enjoy this bumper edition of the Lost Rewatch Podcast and we hope you'll be with us for the final two episodes!

The Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up- 'Superman II'


Well, it's time for the plot of the mash-up to well and truly thicken (and possibly curdle) as we are leaping into the next phase of our look at the Crissy Reeve quartet, with the ambitious, sprawling, ridiculous, funny, disgracefully compromised 'Superman II'.

Partially filmed as part of one giant production with 78's 'Superman', 'II' is a film whose production is what some would describe as 'a bit troubled'. Others would call it 'an express elevator to hell'. Where lies the truth? The only way to find out is to listen to our damn commentary, but BEWARE, good listener - it's vital to recall that this instalment is recorded for the theatrical Richard Lester cut, known to contain at least 36% more dung!

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #113 'The Candidate'

OMG! Just a minor four episodes of the Lost Rewatch Podcast EVA?!? Say it ain't so!

Well, it IS so, but don't despair as there's many miles to travel before The End. We've got even more triple double triple crosses in store this week, a install return to some cosy cages and, most importantly, Sayid deciding to grow a soul once again at the last minute. Plus, Locke gets pushed into some water and Jin decides that his daughter really doesn't need to grow up with a father, because tumultuous parenthood never lead to any bad on this show, right?

'The Candidate' Commentary

WARNING - Please note that when attending The Concert that although the bar is open from 6PM, guests will not be able to take their seats until 7PM.

Hey there, Spider-friends!

We're back this week with our fourth review of Jimmy Whedon's new television experience 'Agents of SHIELD' and, this week, there's the hint that the bumpy ride of the series' start may be coming to a close, with Jimmy delivering a reassuringly strong episode - but is it strong enough to hold onto us as audience members?

The Lost Rewatch Podcast #112 - 'The Last Recruit'

Holy Mozoh! They're are only five episode left of this entire project, something that stuns, confuses, arouses, excites and, of course, saddens us. But there's no time to get reflective yet, as we've got a gosh darned podcast to deliver!

This week, it's ALL kicking off, with a much anticipated face off between Jack and the Man in Black, Desmond chilling out, flush from his success at performing a perfect dive and, of course, the conclusion to the longest occurrence of a separated couple being reunited in all of fiction!

'The Last Recruit' Commentary

WARNING - it's vital, if you haven't yet received your concert tickets, that you call the booking office immediately and ask them to redeem your tickets with the code attached to your original receipt email.

The Marvel Vs DC movie mash-up - 'Superman'

The nights are getting darker, the wind is getting colder - so it must be October, a month internationally known as the one that kicks off the Christopher Reeve portion of our little Marvel Vs DC project!

Yep, we're jumping forward twelve years since last month to 1978, the year in which Dicky Donner delivered a film that was destined to be hugely influential in its sheer impact on the superhero movie genre.

There's earthquakes, wigs, lazy stars, amazing effects and a man who was possibly born to play the last son of Kryton - so let's get to it!
