LOST: Down the Hatch | Season 2, Episode 18: “Dave”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) take some lasagna for the road as they voyage forward with “Dave.”

In their discussion of “Dave,” Josh and Mike take on one of the more polarizing episodes in LOST lore. There’s the Dave of it all, of course, as Sex and the City veteran Evan Handler appears on the island as Hurley’s maybe-imaginary friend Dave… unless he’s the Smoke Monster? Josh and Mike explore the possibilities and much more in their recap of “Dave.”

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]postshowrecaps.com.
  • 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.
