TV Geek Out 74: Lost, "316"

The TV Geek Out Geeks take on a Lost episode sans Perry with their discussion of "316." Though the episode divided some fans, Heather and Dana were both giddy over its complexity and deepening of the show's mythology. A new Dharma station -- the Lamppost -- in L.A.! An awesome Dharma history lesson from Ms. Hawking! Ben at his snarkiest! The return of Capt. Frank Lapidus! The return of most of the Oceanic 6 to the island much sooner than expected! Numerous plot threads were left tantalizingly hanging, and the Geeks have an excellent time speculating over the events that were left out. They also take on some fans' complaints about the episode's emphasis on religion, discussing the show's depiction of the struggle between science and faith, as played out through its characters. They even play TV character matchmaker, suggesting the perfect brainy man for the scholarly Eloise... Any guesses?
