Spoilage Lite - The Return

[NAFDA] The place for casting and other vague spoilers, for those who merely want to wade, not drown, in the spoiler sea. Episode titles, writers, and preview speculation in black font. Exiting cast, TV Guide and other entertainment articles and their discussion white-fonted. Hard core spoilers are not allowed.

"Man, i'm covered in pony blood."

I hate to mention this so late in the game, but wouldn't it have been better to rename the other thread as spoilage lite, as up until now it's been a lot of whitefont?

No, because it also contains hard-core spoilers, which you will note are not allowed in here.

Well, no. Mainly because I think that thread has white-fonted hardcore spoilers. Don't wanna go in any place where I may be tempted to highlight major plot-spoilage.

Anyway. Next Lost episode is titled "Cofidence Man". Since it's a Sawyer-centric ep, we could probably speculate that Sawyer was a con man before the crash. A con man, or a con?

Edit: x-posty!

Also, is there any limitation on which show we may talk about here? And is this thread NAFDA for everything?

I have a plan.

Grifter maybe?

Well, he's cocky and sleazy enough, but I don't know whether he could be smooth enough to pull off a big game. He was probably a small-time crook.

Although, there seem to be some intimations that Sawyer is smarter than he appears, so who knows? I may be surprised.

You always do this. We get tipsy, and you take advantage of my love of the scientific method.

Maybe he's actually a distinguished professor of English at an Ivy League school who just like pissing people off. I'll bet the accent's fake, too.

everyone's anti-godzilla until there's a 200,000 ton boat that can't be moved

From all the attitude New England is giving the South lately, his accent could be genuine and explain why he's so pissed off all the time. Can't be easy to be known as "Professor Hillbilly" at Harvard or MIT these days.

Art Crawl!!!

Woo hoo!

I'm glad the thread is back. Even though I did not vote this time.

"Confidence Man"? Do we know who wrote it?

2020: We will speak of it no longer. Ptui!

"Confidence Man"? Do we know who wrote it?

Damon Lindelof, the co-creator of the show.

I haven't really been paying attention to the writers, other than Fury. Have we had any repeat writers yet? Or have all the episodes been done by different pens so far?

Damon Lindelof co-wrote the pilot with Abrams, as welll as writing the Kate-centric ep. No. 3, "Tabula Rasa".

And Fury wrote the episode after "Confidence Man", which is supposed to be Sayid-centric.

I have to say, the writing in the last episode felt noticeably weaker to me compared to what came before. I mean, the one before that at least had some excellent one-liners by Charlie.

Has the New Drew written anything yet? And Petrie must be available now that Tru Calling has been cancelled, right?
