First ?

Have fun discussing the episode tonight I'm off to get some sleep

LotteryTicket said...

night!

maven said...

Thanks, Zort! Hopefully we can all stay intrigued tonite!

LotteryTicket said...

here we go. . .

LotteryTicket said...

didn't catch that before "Mr. Walker and I will cross paths again" meaning they cross paths before

LotteryTicket said...

dang, what movie salute is this?

SG_Tess said...

Woah!

LotteryTicket said...

"It's complicated" and "something bad has happened back home"

hey Tess

SG_Tess said...

Hi Lottery

LotteryTicket said...

following #theevent twitter search "Contact" was the movie

LotteryTicket said...

red sweeter! dude, you're dead.

Just Thinking said...

Hi guys. Well, my satellite dish must be wearing red tonight too- whole kaboodle is down- maybe to be fixed tomorrow. So enjoy! I may watch another epp of BG- never saw it. Will catch up later ...

LotteryTicket said...

JT, enjoy BSG!

SG_Tess said...

Hey JT to bad about your satellite.

LotteryTicket said...

Ah, duct tape.

LotteryTicket said...

well, I'd chat more, but really nothing to say . . .

Yeah there's not to much to talk about with kind of show.

ObFuSc8 said...

Hey all!

Jumped in late but caught up on DVR.

Sorry about your ailing dish, JT.

Lotto, anything good on #TheEvent search?

I'm finding the about face in POTUS attitude wishy washy. Same with the way Jarvis is acting, he seems to have suddenly grown a pair (or at least one...)

Creepy Dempsey watching little girls in the park, how very Pedo-style of him. It makes me wonder what (if anything) that woman helper of his knows about Dempsey and his serum, how she can reconcile kidnapping and experimenting on little girls. Unless she thinks it's valid because they're Hybrids.

Dempsey's next target for serum extraction is once again a little girl. All of these hybrids have been girls.

Very Mission Impossible of Sean and Vicki...minus Leonard Nimoy plus a pretty bad wig on Vicki's part. ut I guess it's all dhe found with such short notice.

ObFuSc8 said...

Careless move Sean. You should have at least duct taped Ted to a chair, or the wall.

SG_Tess said...

Wonder if that commercial means something new will be in Dempsey's office?

ObFuSc8 said...

I was wondering the same thing Tess.

Come on marine dude, you said "Sophia's here" pretty loud.

ObFuSc8 said...

Ruh roh, POTUS. Let's hope we don't have Sharks/Jets style "alien" throwdown up int that church!

ObFuSc8 said...

My bad. Loud talking Commando dude was one of Thomas' peeps.

SG_Tess said...

Nice of them to leave us hanging. I guess the showdown will be next week.

Black Swan said...

Hi all! I was out tonight, but got this ep on dvr. Not sure if I'll be caught up tonight or not.. 2 cups of coffee after 9pm says maybe I will, LOL. Not much discussion here. Is this a commentary on tonight's show?

maven said...

Hate to say it, but I'm quickly losing interested in this thing. I'll stick with it because I am intrigued by the Dempsey character and I've invested so much in this thing. But there's not much to talk about and most of it is pretty predictable.

Zort70 said...

Hi all, just watched the episode and your right there wasn't much to talk about.

Still a reasonable episode with a decent clifhanger though.

As I see it there are only a couple of outcomes from the showdown, either the aliens will be "portaled" away, they will surrender and plead their case, they will fight and a few including Thomas + Sophia will get away.

I really think the Dempsey storyline will become stronger in the next few weeks and put the alien bid to rehome themselves into perspective.

I haven't seen any trailers so that is all guess work.

I can see why people are not watching it as must see TV, and in the UK if you saw the tweets about the late time slot last night, it is effectively being hidden here.

Amused2bHere said...

wow. So much hype for so little payoff.

The Pres certainly was bugged out by that dream of his, wasn't he? Now he's got quite a chip on his shoulder, suspending all sorts of laws and civil rights, etc. He's gone off the deep end.

I sure hope Sofia and her bunch have a goood explanation for their behaviour...maybe they should approach the govt of a different country to ask for asylum. Let's see...who would take them in?

Approach the UN?
How about Australia?
I know! They can terraform the moon...no permissions needed, right?

Zort70 said...

They need my permission for the Acre of land I was bought as a present.

SG_Tess said...

There's some more things to look at on Dempsey's desk. He has 3 voice mails but I can't get the audio to work for me for some reason so I don't know what they say. He has some more emails too.

Just Thinking said...

So- snow melted off the dish and back in business. But I watched on Hulu to catch up.

Looks like Dempsey is going to France to the dig mentioned in his office letter. Perhaps he is looking for more artifacts like his stone tablet forecast gizmo.

And he also seems to be shaping up as being against the aliens-in other words trying to protect the Earth. But so creepy!

Anyone else hate how they knocked of the radio astronomer?

dan.usmc3@gmail.com said...

I really haven't watched the show, so I have nothing to contribute, in way of that.

Without Lost, I feel as though I'm in a state of entertainment "limbo"...
..or some of you may know this as PURGATORY!!!

Good day/evening to any of you who may read this.

Miss and love all of my Lost Family...ugh...yes, ALL of you.



Peace, love and Purgatory,
Dan (Chucklez)

SG_Tess said...

Hey Chucklez nice to hear from you. How have you been?
Tess aka Sayidsgirl

maven said...

Hey, Chucklez! Great to hear from you. Hope things are going well for you.

There's a new post on TruthSeeker...shows video of 3 buses supposedly leaving the church in the siege last week...assuming they're full of aliens taken from the church.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

Hi all, yeah sure I will keep up. :-( I just haven't even watched one yet, too late and the meds knock me right out. Oh well, I'm here in spirit. Sue, you know who you are... Thank you !! that was very sweet of you. from the bottom of my heart, that really made my day.

Lisa-Maladylis said...

ack, forgot the email me button. sorry.

SG_Tess said...

maven
Are you able to hear the voice mail on Dempsey's desk or see the pictures in the email? It won't load the audio for me and all I get are boxes with red Xs with the pics.

SG_Tess said...

Sorry should have said hi to you Lisa. Sorry your meds knock you out. Glad you can drop by from time to time.

dan.usmc3@gmail.com said...

Salutations from Purgatory,


I'm ok. Working on my journalsim/broadcasting degree at the moment.

Speaking of which...got a test in about 45 minutes...will try to drop in again later.

Good to see some of the Lost Family.

maven said...

@Tess: I heard one voice mail from Alan the attorney...can transcribe if you'd like.

maven said...

Here is the voice mail (nothing earth-shaking):

"Hello, Mr. Dempsey, this is alan over in legal. Just calling you with an update. We are processing the paperwork on this Mr. Wallace...um...van driver. We received word that his case will be postponed for 30 days and if you want further updates give me a call in the office over here. I'll be here until about 7 pm tonight. Thanks a lot. Bye."

Am not seeing any pics in the emails.

SG_Tess said...

Thanks maven
I wasn't expecting anything earth shattering. Just curious in what it was. :)

The second Re:RE:Dig Progress email...

From: Ellis, Harrison K.
To: Dempsey, James
Subject: Re: RE: Dig Progress
Dear Dr. Dempsey,

As requested, attached are some photos from the antechamber. It is incredibly dark, so the flash is only able to illuminate a small percentage of the details. But I am confident that you will be quite happy with our find. The limestone has given way to a rather robust layer of sediment and rock, and thus our progress has slowed.
Looking forward to your presence at the site.

Yours sincerely,
Harrison

...for me has 3 boxes with red Xs where there should be pictures. I'm curious what they're digging for.

K said...

It's a nice show. Just not much to say about it. Miss discussing Lost with you guys - even if I was mostly always swimming in the shallow end. :)
