Welcome to Looking Back At LOST! This LOST rewatch podcast project was first conceived in December 2010, started to release episodes in February 2011, and ran without a stop until August 15th (8/15), 2013.
On the 6th anniversary of Looking Back at LOST launching, Matt returns to ponder the legacy of this landmark series--and, perhaps, its future.
A brief flashback.
Well friends, we're at the end: the podcast concludes this week as Matt looks back at the epilogue "The New Man In Charge." The end starts first with listener feedback, then discusses "New Man;" after that, the exit interview... and one last thought before it's time to be moving on.
In this penultimate episode of the podcast, Matt is again joined by Pete as they listen to and review the season 6 musical highlights.
This week, the long look back at the music of LOST continues, as Matt welcomes Pete to hit the greatest hits of seasons 4 and 5!
Though "The End" has come, there's still more to say about LOST: this week, Matt looks back at the music of the first half of the series. Helping out is Pete from the forthcoming Star Trek Essentials podcast and the Agents of SHIELD podcast.
The End is here. This week, Matt looks back on episode 6x18, the second part of "The End." The podcast discusses religious imagery throughout the episode, the multi-faith flavor the final scenes, Hurley's humility as a protector, the tension who leaves the island and who stays, and the awakenings of Locke, Sawyer, Juliet, and of course, Jack.
It's starting to end: this week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 6x17, the first part of "The End." The podcast discusses listener questions regarding the show's overall plan, the impact of the real world versus the flashsideways world, and delves into the increasingly complicated yet ordered stories on island and the sideways.
Places, everyone: this week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 6x16, "What They Died For." The podcast discuses the episodes deliberate and somber start, which shifts into a rousing finish; it also discusses Desmond as Christ, Jacob's free will recruitment, and our desire for Hurley to protect the island, despite Jack volunteering.
Flashback, and answers: this week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 6x15, "Across the Sea." The podcast discusses this wonderful episode's backstory for Jacob and Smokey... and even seeks to defend the nefarious actions of Mother!
Death, in triplicate: this week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 6x14, "The Candidate." The podcast discusses the heavy use of action, the winding sideways story, and the deaths of Sayid, Jin and Sun.
Sometimes, you just can't leave: this week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 6x13, "The Last Recruit." The podcast discusses the way this episode slowly starts to connect the sideways stories, Sawyer's move away from Smokey, and Jack's decision to never leave.
Lost love, found: this week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 6x12, "Everybody Love Hugo." The podcast discusses the profound and wonderful performances out of Jorge Garcia and Cynthia Watros, the way in which this episode picks up threads from Libby's time on the island in season two, and ponders Desmond and Christ figure.
It's Desmond in every scene--it must be a great episode! This week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 6x11, "Happily Ever After." The podcast discusses the unusual amount of information shared in the show, the not-exactly-a-flashsideways, and the theme of love, sweet love.
Can you speak Korean--only Korean? This week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 6x10, "The Package." The podcast discusses this multi-facited episode: Smokey going to Hydra island, Sayid being dead inside, Sun and Jin on island, and their complex sideways story.
It's the final flashback! This week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 6x09, "Ab Aeterno." The podcast discusses the wonderfully engrossing Richard flashback, the revelation of the island/wine bottle metaphor, and the careful use of the Man in Black.
Good Sawyer or bad Sawyer? This week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 6x08, "Recon." The podcast discusses the captivating Sawyer flash sideways, the return of Charlotte, Detectives Ford and Straume, Smokey Locke as a strange poppa, the Claire/Kate make-up, and much more.
Is Ben a sinner or saint? This week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 6x07, "Dr. Linus." The podcast discusses the kind altruism of Dr. Linus, contrasted by the desperate island Ben; also discussed, this episode as prologue for the upcoming Richard episode.
See Sayid do bad things with a knife, gun, and pool: this week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 6x06, "Sundown." The podcast discusses this under-appreciated gem of an episode which includes creepy and creaky Claire, somber Sayid, and sinister Smokey.
