LOST: Down the Hatch | Season 2, Episode 19: “S.O.S.”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) set out on a mission to grab stones for an “S.O.S.” signal in the latest episode of LOST: Down the Hatch.

In their discussion of “S.O.S.,” Josh and Mike take on the first and only flashback centering on Rose and Bernard, played by L. Scott Caldwell and Sam Anderson. Their conversation covers the touching love story between two of the show’s most beloved recurring characters, how it embodies so many of the themes at the heart of LOST, and much more.

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.
