Only interesting for big LOST fans. Part 2 is mostly rehash.

Ben says № 34 LOST Part 2 is by far their worst episode.

LOST Part 1

16:27 After the pilot, Matt thought the monster on the island was a dinosaur, which did not interest him. Little did you know that it was a man who got flushed down into a golden toilet in the middle of the jungle.

The second, Kate-centric episode also did not interest him.

The first Locke episode hooked him.

33:18 Matt says the show is very rewatchable. Just like the Bible, I'm always picking up new things along the way.

The LOST mystery that drives Matt crazy is Christian Shephard appearing off the island.

48:48 They argue about if LOST is the best TV show ever. I honestly can't think of a show that I think is better. OK, but you spent your life watching Quantum Leap.
50:04 Ben suggests stopping recording and doing a LOST Part 2. Here's what I was thinking cuz we're starting to, we're getting a little bit long and it's kinda late, what if we did a two-parter on this episode? What if we just keep going with this conversation. We come back next week and do spiritual elements then? Come back and--I don't know if I necessarily have prepared enough for... Oh yeah, I will prepare some for that conversation. If we have a week, I will prepare some more.

I instantly like people better if I know they like LOST. And I actually like them a little less if I know they don't like LOST.

Matt thinks "whatever happened, happened" is the best rule for time travel stories.

LOST Part 2

Is art subjective?

Is torture ever OK?

1:49:52 Would you torture someone to stop a terrorist attack? If I was in a scenario like that, it's difficult to say that I wouldn't use whatever option I could to save the lives of countless people. Would you cut off somebody's finger? I said, whatever options available to me. Would you cut off two of their fingers? Maybe even three. Oh my gosh. You're a monster!

On the spot, without thinking it through too much, I'm pro-torture. Although I don't want to be tortured.


I mean, I wouldn't torture just to mess with them. It would only be for information extraction. I'm glad we clarified that. 'Matt Anderson: not in favor of recreational torture'.


Take that, Sayid!
