TV Geek Out 130: Lost, "LA X," Part 1

TV Geek Out's coverage of Lost season 6 begins with a 2-part discussion of the mind-bending premiere, "LA X." Lost is finally back, and the biggest news is the introduction of what seems to be a new reality/timeline in which the plane does land safely in LA, and the island is submerged underwater! In addition, the story on the island continues, as Kate, Jin, Jack, Hurley, Sayid, Sawyer -- and a not-quite-dead-yet Juliet -- are transported back to "present day" and have to deal with their seeming failure to reset the timeline. Yep, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse are sure as hell not playing it safe for the final season, and their new "narrative device" is proving to be more challenging and controversial than perhaps even season 5's adventures in time travel. Listen in as TV geeks Dana, Perry, and Heather debate all the new developments, mourn Juliet (again!), and exchange theories on just what the heck might be happening in the crazy world -- er, worlds? -- of Lost. Check it all out here.

Also, stay tuned for the second part of our chat, in which we delve into the aftermath of Jacob's murder and geek out about finally getting to see the Temple!
