WARNING: Right from the start this episode has spoilers for the TV show Lost. If you haven’t seen Lost and don’t want to know plot details, either skip this one (we’ll be back next week for the WD mid-season premiere), or just check out the News, Making a Murderer, and/or Next Week on The Walking Dead sections:

00:00 – LOST Intro 
7:18
 – News About The Walking Dead
16:21 – Making a Murderer
34:00 – LOST
1:48:54 – Next Week on The Walking Dead

In this episode Karen and Jason go back to the Island, with our top five favorite things about Lost! We think Lost was important in spearheading the kind of television that ultimately led to The Walking Dead, and that our podcast wouldn’t exist without it, and it’s about time we gave it some due.

poster5Now for something completely different! If you’re in the mood for something twisted, beautifully made, creative, clever, poetic, violent, unpredictable, and extremely tragic, go check out the 2003 Korean (not the 2013 US remake) revenge-movie classic, Oldboy, and then come back and listen to me, my wife Jenny, and my friend Harry gush about it. If you have the constitution, I highly recommend checking out this movie!
