Nikki and Paolo die... but is this a truly great episode?  YES!  This week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 3x14, "Expose."  The podcast argues that as standalone episodes go, this one is top notch, as it has dark humor, great twists, and ultimately tweaks the nose of the audience.

• April 5th, 2012

Daddy issues here, daddy issues there: this week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 3x10, "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead." The podcast discusses the hole in Hurley's heart left by dear old dad, the van as a symbol of healing, and "Roger WorkMan" as a reminder that not all problems heal.

• March 29th, 2012

Okay, there's no easy way to say this: it's the tattoo episode.  This week, Matt looks back at LOST episode 3x09, "Stranger In a Strange Land."  Karl cries, Juliette gets marked... and Jack lurks about in flashback Thailand.  Take a listen; we'll get through this one together!
