While LOST fans had to wait an agonizing eight months between the 3rd and 4th season, the show didn’t go completely radio silent. Thirteen 2-3 minute Mobisodes (what the heck are Mobisodes?) were delviered to fill in some missing pieces to parts of Seasons 1 through 3 to whet the fans appetite. Kevin and Ben discuss all thirteen, whether they were effective, and which are the ones worth seeking out.

Additionally, Ubisoft produced a LOST video game that came out early in Season 4. Kevin played through the entirety of the game for the first time, giving his thoughts on the experience and whether it is a worthy companion piece to the show, while Ben provides his input having played the game when it was initially released.

With the show being half way completed (in terms of Seasons, anyway) the duo felt it was a good time to talk about the state of the show at its midway point, discussing how far it had come since Season 1, copycats, etc., all while answering questions from YOU the listeners!

There was once a time where LOST was so hot that a fictionalized novel based off a manuscript in the show cracked the New York Times and Amazon best seller list. Kevin tracked down a copy of the book and gave it a read. Kevin and Ben discuss the relevance of the book to the show (or lack thereof), the connections it makes, and whether or not it’s worth your while. This leads into a discussion about other fandoms and the relevance of their tertiary properties to their overall lore.

Then it’s on to the penultimate episode of Season 3 where the beloved Charlie Pace comes to terms with his destiny and decides to chronicle his “Greatest Hits” before doing so. The other survivors prepare for an ambush of the Others which hopefully could be the beginning of the end of their life on the Island.

Since the beginning of LOST, one question has been asked – how did Locke become a paraplegic? The day has come, my friends, where we get that very answer. This episode also kicks off a series of terrific cliffhanger endings.

In one of the most polarizing episodes of the show, Nikki and Paulo receive their very own episode. Why is it so polarizing, and what did Kevin and Ben think?
