From Broadcast Depth – Episode 18: ‘The Hunting Party’ & ‘Fire + Water’

FBD18

Our main island Survivors cross paths with the Others in search of Michael, a meeting which causes Jack to take action.

In our flashbacks, we learn what lead to Jack and Sarah splitting, and how Charlie knows all too well the burden of being a junkie father as he watched his brother from afar.

Steve Rogers: More Than Just a Big Red, White & Blue Boyscout

Captain America

The moment that Captain America first appeared on-screen in Avengers: Infinity War, the whole audience around me cheered. No other character got this kind of response — and that is entirely down to the legacy and mythos that Marvel has built over Chris Evans’ eight appearances as this character.
