And our first quote...

***
So I have to call him Ben now? HUMPH. How about Benry? Benry Gale. Anyway, he's still a creepy bastard.
Oct 2006



I am all for that chick [Juliet] to defect. Not inviting him to the book club? Him leaving her for the dunking. And it doesn't have to be because of Jack. Seems like the ball was rolling before the plane crashed.
Oct 2006

At first I was like, "WHO ARE THESE STRANGE PEOPLE TALKING?! HE HAS BAD HAIR! DID SHE INTERRUPT CLAIRE?" I don't mind new people, but what an odd way to introduce new people. Bizarre.
Oct 2006

SO, what I would like to see is Jack somehow getting back to the 'outside world' and trying to convince someone or anyone crazy enough to listen to him that there is an island full of flight_815 survivors that need rescued. Possible reuinion with Michael who's sympathetic but unwilling to admit any of the island stuff happened. And eventually finding Penny. But that's just my little quirk at the moment, subject to change.
Nov 2006

I'm annoyed that the Others' entire interest in the survivors is apparently due to Benry's need for a surgeon... or do you think that's not strictly true? I want to believe that there is more to their interest in the survivors, and their capturing of J/K/S. I want to believe they have a greater purpose there.
Nov 2006

BUT could it possibly be that [Alex] wanted to see Ben because she thought he was the only person who would listen? Because he isn't all that bad, really? We aren't seeing the whole story. (It's LOST, we never do.)...And I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but Benry's definitely giving me the Man Behind The Curtain vibe sitting in his surveillance room and wearing geeky-glasses. Which Kinda re-enforces my lame theory. Because As scary as the All-Powerful Wizard was Henry Gale was just a confused man on a power-trip who ended up being--rather nice.

Poor Karl... what on earth was that about? Did you see the bit about "children of Jacob" flash past in that weird film? I know that's a Biblical reference, but I still think there will be a "bigger than Ben" boss man, named Jacob, who will be Ben(jamin)'s father. Would be cool, at least. :)

overall it was okay but not worth a 16 week wait. they better come up with some good stuff in the next few weeks or i'm going over to criminal minds permanently.
Feb 2007

I am thinking that Alex was probably just raised by Ben. Who knows what she was told if she was taken when she was so little. She certainly looks more like her mom and not Ben...In this case I think the simplest answer is the best. Ben adopted Alex (kind of sick imo since he also took her), Alex calls him Dad because she doesn't know any better, and Daniel has been searching all this time for her daughter on the wrong island.

My favorite line was Sawyer's, after Kate bludgeoned the dude with the gun.
"Ha! You fell for the captured Wookie trick!"
Feb 2007

So it looks like Charlie is cursed. Unfortunately, he is on an island so while he won't have to worry about slipping in the shower I would suspect falling coconuts would be quite a hazard.
Feb 2007

What ABC should say is, "ANSWERS TO THREE QUESTIONS THAT YOU DIDN'T ASK BUT YOU MIGHT HAVE WONDERED AT ONE TIME OR THE PERSON NEXT TO YOU DID!"
Feb 2007

I think the anti-Dharma/hostile people are the Others. Who were already there. Others don't equal Dharma. Others are the hostiles who took over Dharma's holdings on the island. Dharma is dead. Which explains why all of its stuff is old, run down, and we have never seen any new Dharma equipment.
Feb 2007

I loved the way at first it looks like he's running toward "us" and our people, and then, ahh... no... he's catching a football. That was cool. :)
March 2007

Maybe it isn't a 'want' more so a 'need'. Perhaps there is a need for people who have been born on the island. After all Ben is the leader. Succession issues or maybe abilities that only island born have. I wish rimwalker was here. As an islander he could tell us which abilities we should be looking for. :D

Ah man, she openned her eyes! God, they sure managed to make you give a shit about Nikki & Paolo.
March 2007

juliette must go.
juliette, bring us your torch .. i'm voting you OFF this island!
April 2007

On the other end of the emotional scale, I was completely creeped out by Ben turning to Juliet in such a nonchalant manner, wanting to "talk" while the smoke trails from a crashing jet plane are still in the sky above them. Wtf people? It's a plane crash--I'd be running in circles, waving my arms around going "omg, omg, omg!"
April 2007

EVERYONE IS A CYLON PREGNANT.
INCLUDING ROSE.
EW.
April 2007

I think the whole island is a cover-up for scientific experiments. Only it's at a Bermuda Triangle kind of place. Maybe. And, the black cloud is magnetic dust or something like the stuff in a magnadoodle. Maybe. Ugh, I wish I knew! It's driving me friggin' crazy not knowing! Or, they are in a parallel universe?
April 2007

bye bye locke. you were a pain in the ass but i'm sad that we aren't going to learn about the island from your perspective.

- Jacob! Holy Crap! At first I was all "haha, empty chair, am I supposed to be scared...oh crap. I'm scared. Don't use that voice ever again!" It reminded me just a bit of Carnivale's ongoing idea of "Management". Is it a diminutive guy who has power because he is nuts and has invented his own backing...or is there really a backing who is really scary.
May 2007

-Eye Liner Dude! Do you never age?

NOT PENNY'S BOAT
May 2007

Do you think that they will still get off the island and that next season we will see that and see what leads up to that moment we saw tonight, where Jack and Kate meet up? And could the season after that end up being about Jack trying to get people to go back to the island with him?

I had forgotten this.

I also like how our observations are getting smarter. It's like we became more educated in LOST-ness or something. ha!

I think 'Benry' is my single proudest contribution to this comm/fandom. And I love how correct our theories were, even when we were like, '....nah, I'm just kidding.'
