The Flickcast – Episode 57: Still Lost

This week on The Flickcast Chris and Matt are joined once again by recurring guest host Elisbeth Rappe. This time around the trio takes on a handful of new and returning topics including the Lost series finale, finales of other TV shows like 24, what it takes to produce a weekly television program, news on various upcoming feature film projects and a whole lot more.

The trio also makes some great picks this week including Elisabeth’s pick of Captain Ron, another film featuring Kurt Russell with an eye patch, Matt’s pick of the Michael Cera starrer Youth in Revolt and Chris’ pick of the 1960 Stanley Kubrick classic Spartacus.

    Sorry for the bitchy tone. I really do enjoy the podcast. And especially like it when Elisabeth Rappe is on. Her enthusiasm is nice counterbalance to Matt’s bitterness. 😉

    Yeah, what Elisabeth said.

    UGH. Surely, by now Matt and Elisabeth have heard the shots of the 815 wreckage were inserted by ABC, and had nothing to do with the show. I thought it was pretty obvious from Jack and Christian’s conversation in the church the alt-timeline was “limbo” and the rest of the show was “reality.” Otherwise, what you guys are saying is that the alt-timeline *and* the island and post-island stories were all snow globe stuff. Come on, guys. That doesn’t make any sense. Hell, even Jack says, “There are no shortcuts, no do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me, I know. All of this matters.” I think that’s a pretty definitive statement from the writers that everything we’ve seen (excluding the alt) happened.

    Also, I understand the frustration with not answering more of the mysteries or clearing up confusion, but I don’t understand the whining about the spirituality or character-focus of the finale. Did you watch season one? Whole episodes was devoted to things like Michael’s relationship with Walt, or Sawyer’s guilt over killing that guy in Australia. And do you remember Mr. Ecko? He was one of the most overtly spiritual characters on TV the last decade.

      Crazy enough, we hadn’t at that point. The news hit the night after we had recorded.

      We can only theorize from the information we have at the time of recording, you know. And we can’t go back to change that.

      Kind of like LOST.

        I understand what you are saying, however I think B roll footage playing over the credits isn’t enough “information” to overturn 6 seasons worth of story-telling.
