@Fate'sBitch: I totally thought of the sheep and coyote clocking in! And also noticed the seeming anomaly of modern language.
@Paganmoon: I was on a mondo deadline last week and Charlie graciously filled in for me. I'll be back this week!
@firethieves: Please see up thread - will be rectifying massive Empire fail before pitchforks and torches appear. Also, for the record, I am a freelancer, not io9 staff. Any gaps in knowledge are mine and mine alone.
@Paganmoon: When Juliet tells Sawyer she wants to take the next sub out of Dodge, he says "you do realize it's 1974." So the earlier time frame is '74, add three years and you get '77. If that's what you were asking ... with this show it's really hard to know what "right now" means!
@ncjones: Locke remains one of my favorite characters - and I think he's got some Rambo vibe hidden up his sleeve for sure. I certainly wouldn't want to be in Ben's shoes right now.
@Oz Mendoza: My B.A. is in art history. As stated in my post, I understand - and don't mind - using religious imagery, allusion, allegory as a literary device. My fear is that they ARE going to do a "Christ/Neo/Superman/Optiumus Prime storyline."
@cash907: "I rewatched her death knell three times, and I swear she is actually saying 'I get to have chocolate waffles for dinner.'"
@plisnithus7: Thanks for posting this! Now that we know what we know from last night, why is Richard peeved when lil' Locke chooses the knife? Whether it was Locke's knife or not, knives play a huge role in Locke's time on the island. And the compass clearly belongs to Richard, we now know, so why would Locke choose…
@designmartini: Except in The Time Traveler's Wife, his clothing didn't travel with him. Which could make for a very interesting new season of Lost.
I spent some time digging through both imdb and various Twilight Zone episode guides before I posted this - couldn't find anything to suggest it was used in that show, though I agree, it really, really looks like it should have been! The pix (1960) predate Outer Limits (first season = 1963).
@Emmanuel Goldstein: OMG, I used to watch this before heading off to school (ah, yes, up at 6:30 to watch cartoons during the week ... those were the days). I totally forgot about it until now.
@Kira16: I also loved the original Johnny Quest. It was the one cartoon my eight-year-older brother would sit down and watch with me.
