The unusual characteristics of the island do in fact make it "invisible" to ships, planes, helicopters, and in deference to previous posts, Santa's sleigh.

The Others used to have a way to get off the island, then find it again. But then that whole hatch blowing up and the sky turning purple thing happened. Now, apparently, the island is even "more invisible" [made up phrase along the lines of "honest truth" or "completely honest" where what should be an absolute gets a modifier to make it even "more absolute"]

Seems as though there twice that many concerning the "popping" sounds for the April 18 episode!

If I changed my profile settings I could be in that elite 1st-page club, but that would be cheating.

What is Lost? Is it good TV? I am really looking for a show that gives me answers every week and each episode is tied up in a nice package and stands on its own merits without the need to watch previous episodes. I really don't feel like thinking. Is this show for me?

if ya delete the 30k popping post and another 2k of unnecessary post, the original could last til the end and could have started a whole new thread in Jan when the 4th season starts or at the end of this season for post season talk.

I still dont think the sub is gone. Smokey is controlled by the Other Others that are underground. and Juliet is good but so untrustworthy.

Even better than spoilers, the post count goes up dramatically when one critical post is followed by five to ten posts saying "why are you wasting our time" and "don't let the door bang you in the ass" etc.

I usually read the forum form old to new. I was quite surprised to see the lock on the old thread. I'm just glad it wasn't the worst case scenario that played out in my head.

Did anyone have "popping" sounds within the first 10 or so minutes of last weeks eps.? I just got caught up over the weekend and had popping sounds while watching the episode on my DVR.

Hey !! Don't jump on him !

He is just a dentist and by habit he is gets to concentrate on faces only. If it were anything else, it would be highly suspicious.

Hmm...I think we should start a poll here. Did anybody else hear the popping sounds. Come on, speak up.

i heard the popping sound during last weeks lost episode as well. It went away after a few minutes.

I checked some other channels at the same time and they didnt have the clicking.

I really, REALLY want someone to invent something that will allow me to stab people in the face over the internet. Maybe then we wouldn't have to hear about the popping anymore.

Stabbing is a bit extreme...we just need a springloaded boxing glove to pop out of the monitor on their end :-)

I'm no expert....so your mileage may vary

Yeah, but then you'd have to put up with posts like:
"Did anyone get "stabbing" pains within their first 10 or so redundant posts on last weeks eps.? I didn't get caught up on the weekends' posts and had stabbing pains while posting about previously discussed topics on my interwebs."

Folks that are wondering about the popping noises would be well advised to check the thread that was live when said popping noises occurred...and a few days thereafter.

Interesting. I have found it to be the opposite lately. i.e. If you post that you liked the episode (god forbid) for some reason, 10-15 posts follow telling you why you shouldn't, with several nit-picking details about why SO I guess it goes both ways. In any case, there is passion about this show either way. That much is clear to me.

Yeah, maybe.

A few face stabbings should fix that though.

The odd thing is that they are still loading with the current sever as they haven't been archived yet. Although, several years worth of posts in the threads became unsearchable quite awhile back.

I thought it was just that the thread needs to be reset every 108,000,000 (posts x views) or the internet will blow up...
