The Other Woman
We watched Episodes 74 & 75 of 82 tonight, so technically we've watched this whole week's worth of shows already and the rate of two a night we will be through with Season 4 by Friday and Season 5 doesn't start until almost 3 weeks after that.
Episode #74, The Constant, took place on Christmas Eve in Lost time, missed it by 5 days. When we started rewatching them from the beginning, I started on a Monday with the shows spaced so that we would finish up a couple days before the next season started, maybe I should have scheduled them to line up with island time, Season 1 started on September 22, 2004 and Season 4 ends on New Year's Eve 2004. Maybe next year (as long as when Ben moved the island in time he just jumped exactly in years and didn't shift days.)
It is almost a good thing because I have really wanted to stop writing the little episode synopsizes, because Season 4 is where the show got far out there (if that was even possible for this show that has been water skiing around a school of sharks looking for a ramp ever since the get go.) The season's arc was intriguing, we find out that six people got rescued and we find out early on who five of them are (turns out we knew the sixth, but the producers were being cagey) and through out the episodes we see those 5 people scattered amongst several separate locations and circumstances and they are only brought together in the season finale. But several of the goings on leading up to the rescue are like jigsaw puzzle pieces that look like they came from a different puzzle.
We took the tandem out for a couple three miles as a sort of a shakedown cruise for it and us. Things worked well, mechanical and physical, and if the helmet mounted lamp arrives tomorrow as planned we are going to ride the bike to work on New Year's Eve.
Started up, went down, still down.
