LOST: Down the Hatch | Season 2 Feedback Show

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) are done with season two of LOST.

Okay, not quite. In fact, Josh and Mike are taking one last chance to look back at the sophomore season of “Lost,” guided by feedback from the Hatchlings, the results of the MVP/LVP points and the 4.2 Stars episode rankings, and more as they look ahead toward season three.

Mike will be missing from the podcast next week; a season two book club podcast with Josh, Jonathan Krause and a special guest will drop instead of the season three premiere recap. Expect the season three premiere recap on July 24, 2020.

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.
