It always comes after I leave work...

I appreciate you guys trying to keep ahead of Lost episodes, but by the time most of us listen, it's already old news. Isn't there any way you guys can record a different day?

We talked about it, but it won't matter in 12 weeks, anyway...

That wasn't remotely cryptic.

Wait a minute - Chewie watchest TWiT?

Higgins I want your straight-shooter take on the SCP Foundation site - I think it's overwrought, one-note, and overrated.

The show ends in 12 weeks, so it won't matter if the podcast goes up before or after Lost airs. That, or they're ending the show then. Could go either way.

Until then, Fitch giving his Lost recap has to become a recurring segment each episode. That was phenomenal.

And this has nothing to do with anything except that Karen linked to some commercials and this one is one of my all-time favorites:

It can be tricky but you want to only put the highlighted portion between the youtube tags.

I think you guys are a little messed up about Lost on this one. Helen wasn't a phone sex operator in the main timeline; Locke was CALLING a phone sex operator and treating her like Helen after she left him. Totally healthy coping mechanism, right?

This is correct.

And sorry, we're not ending the show in 12 weeks...Lost will be over in 12 weeks :lol:

As I mentioned last week, I put spoiler timestamps in my CastMedium post for this episode of the podcast. If you're wary of (brief) Burn Notice spoilers, Braid ending spoilers, and "The Substitute" Lost spoilers, check out what segments you should skip:

Hope this helps at least one person out there.

I registered for the forums just to give my support to this statement.

Also, if it *really* bothers you that they're talking about "last week's episode of Lost" after you've seen this week's, then just do what I do: Don't watch Lost until Wednesday. It'll up on ABC's site. And watch Lost Untangled while you're there for some funny recaps.

To be fair, I do this because I can't (*cough* WoW Raid... *cough*) watch it on Tuesday, but it has worked out well.

Oh, and another thing. There's supposedly a blogger who is watching the final season of Lost without having seen the other episodes, and then gives recaps. While humorous, I wasn't that caught by it. You can judge for yourself at http://neverseenlost.wordpress.com/

I've gotta agree with Higgins on the CG effects. While they may be cheesy, practical effects and models/miniatures look much better to me than any amount of computer animation. Although greenscreen compositing has gotten much better, for some reason CGI pops out at me when I see it.

Oh, and as for Microsoft points? 80 points to a dollar. Most games are sold in $5 increments (400, 800, 1200), and most pics, themes, avatar crap are $1-3 (80-240). The point totals that you can buy are still a bit annoying and inconvenient, but it's a lot less obfuscated when I can immediately translate points to real money as I'm browsing the game store.

I very rarely am wrong about anything, and to date can not remember ever admitting that I was, but I was completely wrong about that shitty cat commercial. This Pole Position commercial is now my new number 1 favorite thing of all fucking time.

I know I might get killed by posting a bunch of soccer commercials but I've fought off soccer haters before and I'll do it again. Beside, even soccer haters will enjoy theses.

This one is Directed by Guy Ritchie and is probably the best one.
[youtube]<object width="560" height="340"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/tsizQdNKhGg&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/tsizQdNKhGg&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="560" height="340"></embed></object>[/youtube]

This is a really old one about the Brazilian soccer team unleashing a terrorist attack on an air port.
[youtube]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/sbFmK4zZ9Ys&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/sbFmK4zZ9Ys&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/youtube]

Another old one. Some players go on a secret mission to retrieve a "rounder" ball.
[youtube]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/yzPcIjMnToU&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/yzPcIjMnToU&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/youtube]

I'm sure there's a billion more good ones but I don't know of them.
