Tivo'ed it, watched it yesterday. That episode was about as weird as it gets.  :o The ending with Farraday was great...'If anything goes wrong, Desmond will be my constant.' I guess he must be jumping back and forward in time too and has just gotten used to it somehow. ???

I think he put that in his journal because of the experience with Desmond in the past to act as a saftey, but I don't think he's jumping back and forth in time.  If he was, he would be passed out in the "present" time at least once in a while.

However, I do think that he will go through the same time jumping thing at some point.  Remember how he was crying in his flashback when they found the remains of the flight on TV?  And he didn't know why he was crying?  I wonder if this is him travelling back in time and suffering the same problem, but he won't be able to find Desmond.

TV Guide has a nice Q and A up now, with questions from the cast and answers from the producers (Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof).  Sounds like we'll be getting a lot of answers yet this season, and topics covered are the Oceanic 6, time jumping, the coffin, etc.  SPOILERS are definitely discussed, so beware, although there aren't really any definitive "answers" given, more about what will be covered in the upcoming episodes.  Sounds good.

Yeah, they always tell us we're going to get a whole bunch of answers then we get squat.  I will admit though that last week's episode had some good info in it and, IMO, was probably the best episode so far this season.

Still, I think a psych student could write their thesis paper on my love/hate relationship with this show.  I feel like the battered girlfriend that keeps going home because my "man" keeps promising me things will get better.

As the main characters have all of these little adventures, do you think all of the unnamed faceless survivors on the beach know what is happening? Do they know they are in danger or do they just go about their business of sitting on the beach and making dinner?

Wouldn't it be great to have a spin off on just them but going on at the same time? Kind of like ST:TNG and Deep Space 9.

I think we've see that the lesser characters, tend to get left out of the loop by the main characters by design. No need to worry the troops until they need to be worried.

They are left out of any "missions" the main characters go on, but they obviously aren't oblivious to things like the hatch, people dying, presence of "the others," etc.  If I was one of 30 or so "extras," I don't think I would be content just accepting everything that was happening and hanging out on the beach.

Last night's episode sucked.  Why would anyone tape over a Red Sox tape?  :'(

Actually I enjoyed it.  Some answers, some more questions.  Good stuff.  Plus Ben is fast becoming the best character on the show (him and Desmond).  Always in control, even when he's locked in a closet.  And he brought the funny - "this rabbit didn't have a number on it did it?" and "see you at dinner" while Sawyer and Hurley stared at him slacked jawed.

Plus Juliet is teh hawt.

Ben and Desmond all the way. It was an OK episode. I had already guessed that Widmore was the man behind the boat and the "economist". I don't know i f i buy Ben's story about wanting to exploit the island. That may be part of it but i also think that Widmore wants to keep Desmond there. Its a race now between father and daughter to find the island. As for the man on the boat, i think they made it pretty obvious that it is Michael with the preview for next week.

Ben is much better than he was last year for sure. I have to re-watch last nights episodes because I had some distractions and missed some lines and images.

However, I did catch that the last of the Oceanic 6 will be revealed next week, so our little debate will be answered once and for all.  :)

I noticed that as well, looking forward to it.  I really lean towards Michael being the "man on the boat" as well.  We know he's coming back to the show at some point, somehow, and this seems like as good a place as any.  He's been in the opening credits a couple of times already this season.  Another good episode overall last night, with some nice light shed on Ben and Juliet.  I think that Michael Emerson (Ben) should be considered for awards, something like "best creepy guy" or something :).  I also liked the moment of Sawyer and Hurley playing horseshoes and Ben walks by "see you at dinner".

Why do they list an actor's name on the credits for an episode the actor didn't appear in? They did that a few times for Fisher Stevens when we never saw him until we were on the boat.

He already has. :)  He won an Emmy for playing an extra-creepy serial killer on The Practice - as well as a "fun" award for playing "Best Baddie".

Contracts and money, and a lot of time it has nothing to do with the actors ego either. It's sometimes cheeper for the studio to give actors a better credit, has to do with their "appearing" status (regular, re-occurring, guest star, etc...)

Also think that its easier to just create a line of credits and use that multiple times, rather than altering them for whomever may have appeared in the show.  Certainly if a guest actor appears, they should be named, but I wouldn't want to have to track each character for an appearance and then change the list each time.
