Tread Perilously

Sep 24, 2015

Continuing their break from Doctor Who, Justin and Erik land on the Island of Lost fame and face what might be the single worst episode of the series -- "Stranger in a Strange Land." Learn why Justin will always apologize to Erik when "Jack's tattoo" or "Bai Ling" are invoked. Marvel as an hour of the heavily serialized show fails to move the plot but for a step or two.

The discussion leads to the theory that Lost is a fulcrum point between 21st Century television and what it looked like in the previous century. Bottle shows, Battlestar Galactica and Babylon 5 also get a mention.
