Lost: Down the Hatch | Season 4 Episode 10: “Something Nice Back Home”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) are scrubbing in to perform surgery on “Something Nice Back Home.”

In “Something Nice Back Home,” Jack goes under the knife. In the future, it’s going much better until it’s very much not. A controversial season four episode, somehow, Josh and Mike both see eye-to-eye on this one. Come find out why they’re all in on Jack’s appendicitis!

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 eight sound clips from each episode.

• The Others – Josh and Mike answer questions sent their way by listeners through the official e-mail address: [email protected]

• 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 rank every episode of LOST, by rating them all on a scale from 0 – 4.2. Josh and Mike offer their individual scores, listeners’ scores will be averaged as a third data point, then the three points combine as the podcast’s official score on each episode.
