You know, I dunked a lot on Jack at the start of this season.

Lost Recaps S1E19: Deus Ex Machina

We’re back! It’s hard to believe that, the last time I wrote about a John Locke-specific episode, it was still relevant to actually tell people to wash their hands instead of just assuming they’d scrubbed them down to the bone already – three months in lockdown, three months of Lostdown, and I have Entirely lost (heh) my mind.

Lost Recaps S1E11: All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues

I took one look at the title of this episode, and only one thing came to mind. Because if you bring up cowboys and daddy issues in the same sentence, I am simply obliged to share with you this iconic Magnetic Fields faux-country gay banger, Papa Was A Rodeo. Here, listen to it now – if you sync it with reading this recap just right, it’s like Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd, except actually interesting.
