Lost: Down the Hatch | Season 4 Episode 9: “The Shape of Things to Come”

Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Mike Bloom (@AMikeBloomType) have changed the rules.

In “The Shape of Things to Come,” the barracks come under attack, and as a result, Benjamin Linus’ entire life crashes down around him. It’s an iconic episode of LOST, one that serves as a major turning point for the rest of the season. You won’t want to miss out.

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.
