Fill-In "Lost" Reviewers Needed for a Couple Episodes

I'm hoping a few kind souls can help me cover a couple reviews this season. I'll be traveling for business on a number of occasions and there's really no way I can fit reviews in on those weeks. I'm looking for volunteer reviewers for the following episodes:

  • Wednesday, Jan. 28
  • Wednesday, Feb. 11

I may also need someone on short notice in March. My wife and I are expecting child No. 2 around that time -- there's really no way I'll be able to swing that one!

I certainly don't expect you guys to crank out long reviews -- it's enough to just hit the high points of an episode. If you're up for it, please drop me a line at

Along those lines -- I'm going to experiment with a different type of review this season. Reviews will still be broken down by storyline, but I'm more interested in discussing the important parts of those stories, rather than recapping every detail. The prospect of writing deep into the night detracts from my "Lost" experience, and the last thing I want is to degrade the time I've got with this insanely great show. We'll see how it goes, but I hope you won't mind my attempt to balance things out.

For pinch hitter, I nominate vacc.

Dear Mac, felicitations on the impending arrival! Thanks for the meeting place, thanks for the recaps (in whatever format), and thanks for sharing our passion for Lost. Your efforts are always sincerely appreciated.

I am on-board if you need me. You have my bona-fides. Last nights' marathon got this hound dog back on track... I'll stay as true to form as the Mac-style allows. . . . no . . . really . . . all kidding aside . . . I'll do a good job.

As for March - I'll handle the hospital stuff... you stay here and do what you do best. [;^)

Hi Mac - best wishes on the new baby coming! so much excitement this winter!

I am sure you'll get help. Lots of kind capable people here.

Now you're edging into dangerous territory. They'll have you (the parents) at even odds. One more and you're outnumbered and all hope is
wait for it...

I also nominate Vacc... but I also wouldn't mind doing it. =]

Congrats Mac! Please keep upping the population of Red Sox Nation!

I'll happily lend a hand as primary or back up or sounding board whenever needed.

I am sure you all are as excited as I am for Wednesday....I just got through the Series 4 DVDs, extras, commentaries, and I cannot wait to see what L&C have in store for us this season!

Hi guys!

Once again, you've come through. Two Lost blog regulars have graciously volunteered to handle reviewing duties:

Intrepid "House" chronicler Cecil Rose will be your reviewer for the Jan. 28 episode, and Vacc -- the man who bravely beat the season 4 finale into submission -- will review the Feb. 11 ep.

Thanks to all who volunteered. I just might take you up on it down the road.

And thanks as well for the well wishes re: Baby No. 2. We're thinking of naming him Locke ;)

Congratulations on #2 Mac!

Locke's a great name (I'm fond of hugo myself though)...and then you'll be a family of 4...with 8 arms and legs...15 minutes of time to yourself...16 diaper changes per day...23 hour days... 42 beers per week to get through it all and then, one day, when your son digs a hole to burry his dead goldfish in the backyard, he'll discover a hatch!!!

1h45 minutes to season 5
