Bean and James are watching Lost, but in the very wrong order. Remember Lost?? No, really — do you Remember?? Lost???
[FINALE] vincent the human man
its the finale of finales! thats right, bean and james are here to discuss the back half of The End, which james had not seen until recording this episode. one last ride into glory. one last breakdown of the joyless season 6. one last opportunity for sawyer to... well, i won't spoil it. one last frank lapidus funny moment. one last awful daniel faraday outfit. one last island shuffle. and a fond farewell to the silly island where anything can happen.
we're back! (kinda!) we're talking about season 2, episode 20, two for the road, an episode about ana lucia's funny vacation, benjamin's funny pranks, and michael's regular day. james and bean try their best to remember what a podcast is -- they're stuck in the distant past, unfortunately, so cut em some slack!
as mentioned in the start of the episode, we are ending the show somewhat prematurely. however we have one episode still to come!! so stay tuned next week to hear the island shuffle Grande Finaley!!
it may be a month off for us, but the folks at Lostpedia work year round to maintain a comprehensive database about our favourite serialized ABC mystery show! so we decided to humble ourselves before the true masters. it’s a deep dive into second favourite website next to random dot org!! we’re sharing our favourite articles, facts, and fan theories from a simpler time online, when all you needed were a few humble thoughts about a wildly popular television show about a plane. join us as we stare into the eye of the online, and find something beautiful.
we’re enjoying a heaping helping of Season 1, Episode 17, …In Translation. this implies “Lost” in Translation. like the movie! we provide mostly some helpful differences between the 2003 oscar-nominated film and this episode of Lost. we also talk about when Jin golf out of anger, is mean to his wife, and then everyone decides to be racist for a day. and don’t forget about the time Jin agreed to become an enforcer for his mob father-in-law!!
this will be our last episode for a little while — we’re taking a break for the month of august, so we can be rested up for the final final push to the end of this wild journey. follow us @IslandShuffle and we’ll keep you posted on when we’re back! sometime in september probably! we also have a bonus episode ready to go for the downtime! thanks as always for listening!
jeff foxworthy in a fat suit
after an accurate summary of Adam Sandler’s Waterboy Film, we talk about Season 4, Episode 13, There’s No Place Like Home (Part 2). lots of stuff in here!! Hurley takes a piss, Locke asks Jack to partake in a conspiracy, and Ben commits a murder. meanwhile, a BOMB on a FREIGHTER?? what’s gonna happen? in other news, Bean and James have a lot of cool ideas about a certain stand-up comedian’s next steps. royalties, bay bee!
kissing and moaning
a HUNDRED ‘sodes!! we celebrate this historic milestone with a Classically Terrible Episode of the show. its of course Stranger in a Strange Land, Season 3, Episode 9. you might know it as “The Jack’s Tattoo’s episode”. it’s somehow worse than you remember it! Jack goes on a regular vacation where he flies a kite, kisses a Hot Lady, and then decides to ruin everything for no reason and gets banned from all of Thailand. in the present, Jack is in Jail, and Juliet is on Trial. but Sawyer??? Sawyer’s talkin to the fellas. on this beautiful occasion of 100 episodes, we say to you, here’s to a hundred more!! (or maybe like, 21 more, instead? yeah okay)
An instant fav
The Island Shuffle immediately jumped onto my list of podcasts that I have to listen to the day they come out. For anyone who watched Lost this podcast is a hilarious, sometimes analytical, charming joy ride. For those who didn't, what better way to watch an infamously chaotic show than in random order!
