LOST: Down the Hatch | Season 1, Episode 15: “Homecoming”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) dig into “Homecoming,” and… really? This is Damon Lindelof’s least favorite LOST episode?

In “Homecoming,” Charlie Pace (Dominic Monaghan) takes center stage in the past with a weird little ditty about puking into photocopiers or something, and okay, it’s not great, but! What about everything happening on the island? With Claire (Emilie De Ravin) back at camp, questions abound about Ethan Rom (William Mapother) and the Others he represents, leading to one of the tensest hours in early LOST history — forgiving the flashbacks, at least. With an ending that was very frustrating to some in the moment, “Homecoming” may warrant a new perspective and evaluation. Josh and Mike are here to do exactly that.

“Homecoming” was directed by Kevin Hooks and written by Damon Lindelof. It originally aired on February 9, 2005.

About Down the Hatch …

LOST: Down the Hatch is a full-tilt spoiler-filled rewatch of LOST. Every week, Josh and Mike break down an episode of LOST with the benefit of knowing the series’ full trajectory, using the following structure as a guide:

  • We Go “Fourth” – Josh and Mike begin each podcast with a deep-dive into the story both in front of and behind the camera, and they do so with the assistance of…
  • 8 Sounds – The events of LOST pop right off the camera and straight into your ears with eight memorable moments replayed on the podcast, helping us guide through the story;
  • 15/16 Others – Josh and Mike answer questions and comments sent their way through the official e-mail address: downthehatch@postshowrecaps.com
  • 23 Points – Each week, Josh and Mike hand out points for the best and worst characters of the episode in question, in a foolhardy attempt to determine the most and least valuable players in the LOST pantheon.
  • 4.2 Stars – Josh and Mike will attempt to create an official Down the Hatch ranking of every episode of LOST, by rating them all on a scale from 0 – 4.2. Josh and Mike will offer their individual scores, listeners’ scores will be averaged as a third data point, then the three points will be combined for the podcast’s official score on each episode.

Each episode of Down the Hatch clocks in at no less than 108 minutes. If the podcast falls short of that runtime, Josh and Mike have triggered a crisis! Consequences may (and almost certainly will) ensue thanks to the Frozen Donkey Wheel.

The Walking Dead | Season 10, Episode 7 Recap: “Open Your Eyes”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jessica Liese (@HaymakerHattie) talk about hemlocks and headlocks, both fatal in their own rights, in the latest episode of the Walking Dead podcast, called “Open Your Eyes.”

In their discussion of season 10, episode seven, “Open Your Eyes,” Josh and Jess cover the death of a series regular, the unmasking of a Whisperer, Carol (Melissa McBride) once again serving food as an intimidation tactic, Carol once again being horrible to a child, and Arkansas Dave Mr. Rudabot. That last one is a really niche joke but man oh man did it create some belly laughs here on this podcast.

Elsewhere, in Alexandria, disease! Sickness! Ailments! Swine flu? Okay, probably not swine flu again, but sickness all the same! Josh and Jess examine the reasons why so many of the Alexandrians are currently shacking up at the infirmary. Plus, what’s up with Eugene (Josh McDermitt) and his new radio pen pal? It’s a hard one to talk about without getting into spoilers from the comic books… good thing we have a section dedicated for that very purpose!

Josh and Jess dig into all of those storylines and more, engage in listener feedback, and dive into the spoiler-filled comic book zone as well. Comic book spoilers kick in around the one hour and four minute mark.

LOST: Down the Hatch | Season 1, Episode 17: “…In Translation”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) didn’t start the fire, but they’re hopping into the blaze anyway with their recap of the first (and, apparently, only) solo Jin Kwon flashback episode, “…In Translation.”

In “…In Translation,” Daniel Dae Kim steps into the spotlight to reveal new sides of Jin, up to this point depicted as a ruthless outsider, here revealed as a deeply misunderstood and damaged individual. Josh and Mike talk about how Jin’s story unfolds, and they also make a meal out of the episode title’s ellipsis.

“…In Translation” was directed by Tucker Gates and written by Javier Grillo-Marxuach and Leonard Dick. It originally aired on February 23, 2005.

Mr. Robot | Season 4, Episode 9 Recap: “409 Conflict”

It’s raining chaos, and Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) have brought their umbrellas accordingly.

Josh and Antonio discuss “409 Conflict,” the ninth episode of the final season of Sam Esmail’s Mr. Robot. After several brutal installments in a row, Elliot (Rami Malek) and Darlene (Carly Chaikin) finally strike back against the Whiterose (BD Wong) empire, with a helpful assist from an unlikely ally: Phillip Price (Michael Cristofer). Josh and Antonio discuss the attack against the Deus Group, the casualties along the way, and that insane opening scene.

About Mr. Robot

Rami Malek stars on USA Network’s Mr. Robot as Elliot Alderson, a computer hacker with dissociative identity disorder who alternately works with and against another facet of himself: Mr. Robot (Christian Slater), the spitting image of Elliot’s deceased father. Together and apart, Elliot and Robot have radically changed the world through their revolutionary acts, with a trail of bodies and billions of dollars left in their wake.

Additional cast includes Carly Chaikin as Elliot’s sister Darlene, Portia Doubleday as childhood friend Angela Moss, Martin Wallström as shark-suited Tyrell Wellick, Michael Cristofer as ruthless businessman Phillip Price, BD Wong as Minister Jiang aka Dark Army leader Whiterose, and Grace Gummer as federal agent Dominique DiPierro. Mr. Robot comes from the mind of Sam Esmail, who has directed every episode since season two.

In “Outlaws,” Sawyer (Josh Holloway) undertakes two missions of vengeance: one against a boar on the island who has been rampaging through his stuff, and one against a man in Sydney who is allegedly responsible for ruining his life. In the process, he crosses paths with friends and foes, makes some new drinking buddies, and maybe even earns a few rare MVP points in the process.

“Outlaws” was directed by Jack Bender and written by Drew Goddard. It originally aired on February 16, 2005.

The Walking Dead | Season 10, Episode 8 Recap: “The World Before”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jessica Liese (@HaymakerHattie) chart a course for Bloodsworth Island and find themselves trapped in a cave filled with zombies instead.

In their discussion of season 10, episode eight, “The World Before,” Josh and Jess get into the midseason finale, in which all hell breaks loose. By “all hell,” of course, we mean a zombified fan-favorite nearly eats a baby, a confounding villain meets his maker, Michonne (Danai Gurira) sails off for a new world in an attempt to defeat the Whisperers, while Daryl (Norman Reedus) and friends end the half-season surrounded by flesh-hungry walkers in a subterranean lair.

Josh and Jess dig into all of those storylines and more, engage in listener feedback, and dive into the spoiler-filled comic book zone as well. Comic book spoilers kick in around the 59 minute mark.

Mr. Robot | Season 4, Episode 8 Recap: “408 Request Timeout”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Antonio Mazzaro (@acmazzaro) do their best to find the key to unlocking the latest hour of Sam Esmail’s Mr. Robot, “408 Request Timeout.”

Following on the heels of the devastating, groundbreaking “407 Proxy Authentication Required,” Josh and Antonio move forward into “408 Request Timeout,” an episode that lives up to its title: Elliot (Rami Malek) takes the time to confront the severity of what he’s just learned about his past, while the rest of the action centers on Darlene (Carly Chaikin), Dom (Grace Gummer) and Janice (Ashlie Atkinson). It does not work out so well for all of them — some worse than others.

About Mr. Robot

Rami Malek stars on USA Network’s Mr. Robot as Elliot Alderson, a computer hacker with dissociative identity disorder who alternately works with and against another facet of himself: Mr. Robot (Christian Slater), the spitting image of Elliot’s deceased father. Together and apart, Elliot and Robot have radically changed the world through their revolutionary acts, with a trail of bodies and billions of dollars left in their wake.

Additional cast includes Carly Chaikin as Elliot’s sister Darlene, Portia Doubleday as childhood friend Angela Moss, Martin Wallström as shark-suited Tyrell Wellick, Michael Cristofer as ruthless businessman Phillip Price, BD Wong as Minister Jiang aka Dark Army leader Whiterose, and Grace Gummer as federal agent Dominique DiPierro. Mr. Robot comes from the mind of Sam Esmail, who has directed every episode since season two.

LOST: Down the Hatch | Season 1, Episode 15: “Homecoming”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) dig into “Homecoming,” and… really? This is Damon Lindelof’s least favorite LOST episode?

In “Homecoming,” Charlie Pace (Dominic Monaghan) takes center stage in the past with a weird little ditty about puking into photocopiers or something, and okay, it’s not great, but! What about everything happening on the island? With Claire (Emilie De Ravin) back at camp, questions abound about Ethan Rom (William Mapother) and the Others he represents, leading to one of the tensest hours in early LOST history — forgiving the flashbacks, at least. With an ending that was very frustrating to some in the moment, “Homecoming” may warrant a new perspective and evaluation. Josh and Mike are here to do exactly that.

“Homecoming” was directed by Kevin Hooks and written by Damon Lindelof. It originally aired on February 9, 2005.

About Down the Hatch …

LOST: Down the Hatch is a full-tilt spoiler-filled rewatch of LOST. Every week, Josh and Mike break down an episode of LOST with the benefit of knowing the series’ full trajectory, using the following structure as a guide:

  • We Go “Fourth” – Josh and Mike begin each podcast with a deep-dive into the story both in front of and behind the camera, and they do so with the assistance of…
  • 8 Sounds – The events of LOST pop right off the camera and straight into your ears with eight memorable moments replayed on the podcast, helping us guide through the story;
  • 15/16 Others – Josh and Mike answer questions and comments sent their way through the official e-mail address: downthehatch@postshowrecaps.com
  • 23 Points – Each week, Josh and Mike hand out points for the best and worst characters of the episode in question, in a foolhardy attempt to determine the most and least valuable players in the LOST pantheon.
  • 4.2 Stars – Josh and Mike will attempt to create an official Down the Hatch ranking of every episode of LOST, by rating them all on a scale from 0 – 4.2. Josh and Mike will offer their individual scores, listeners’ scores will be averaged as a third data point, then the three points will be combined for the podcast’s official score on each episode.

Each episode of Down the Hatch clocks in at no less than 108 minutes. If the podcast falls short of that runtime, Josh and Mike have triggered a crisis! Consequences may (and almost certainly will) ensue thanks to the Frozen Donkey Wheel.

The Walking Dead | Season 10, Episode 7 Recap: “Open Your Eyes”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Jessica Liese (@HaymakerHattie) talk about hemlocks and headlocks, both fatal in their own rights, in the latest episode of the Walking Dead podcast, called “Open Your Eyes.”

In their discussion of season 10, episode seven, “Open Your Eyes,” Josh and Jess cover the death of a series regular, the unmasking of a Whisperer, Carol (Melissa McBride) once again serving food as an intimidation tactic, Carol once again being horrible to a child, and Arkansas Dave Mr. Rudabot. That last one is a really niche joke but man oh man did it create some belly laughs here on this podcast.

Elsewhere, in Alexandria, disease! Sickness! Ailments! Swine flu? Okay, probably not swine flu again, but sickness all the same! Josh and Jess examine the reasons why so many of the Alexandrians are currently shacking up at the infirmary. Plus, what’s up with Eugene (Josh McDermitt) and his new radio pen pal? It’s a hard one to talk about without getting into spoilers from the comic books… good thing we have a section dedicated for that very purpose!

Josh and Jess dig into all of those storylines and more, engage in listener feedback, and dive into the spoiler-filled comic book zone as well. Comic book spoilers kick in around the one hour and four minute mark.
