I think they were able to get around this because the JinSun episodes involve 2 people.. It was linearly a flashback for Jin and linearly a flashforward for Sun.. The 2 stories did not intersect...

Yeah but that's like seriously flirting with disaster. TPTB your actions speak louder than words.  Put your money where your mouth is.  They deserve a pay cut. 

Darlton is clearly on a three drink lunch when they record... they twist words, contradict each other, and probably sometimes lie.  Even they say don't trust them... what would be the point of watching the show if they gave direct answers in the podcast.

They write and produce the best show on television maybe the best drama ever they deserve a massive pay raise in my opinion.

The podcast is for entertainment not information.

i really only listen to it cuz they are so funny

Crap crap crap.

I feel so punk'd. :-[  I was totally on board with hyperform's theory about Jin being one of Ben's assassins until "year of the dragon" pulled the rug out from under me.

Any chance the year of the dragon they refer to is 2012??

I know its a stretch but thats teh next year of the dragon,

I like the theory that it is the future, new wife, Jin's death is staged and mr Paik is in on it?

Thoughts?

Explain the old cell phone. Why would Paik keep his grandchild's father away? I could see Paik "bumping" Jin off because he doesn't care for him. But hide him and keep him on the payroll? Sounds to much like Dez/Penny/Papa W angle. Sorry.

No chance. It was 2000. Clearly a flashback for Jin. If he is alive, he is still on the island. Sacraficing himslef for Sun and the baby

Did I miss the "old cell phone" label in the episode?

i think that the producers said that the flashes were all chronological, not that there would not be forwards and backs in the same episode.  both sun's and jin's flash was in chronological order.  they're just not going to flashforward 5 months, then 3 months, then 8 months for the same person on the same flash.

I do remember them saying that they would be chronological, and I guess you are right that the were chronological in respect to each character.

It would have to be 200

Agreed.

This is the year of the rat. 2004 is the year of the monkey. The next year of the dragon is 2012.

Also two different actors play Jin's father and the shopkeeper.

i still believe that this episode showed a flashback for jin, but that doesnt mean that he is really dead in the sun's flash forward. anything that happens off camera is up for discussion (i.e. i dont think ethan hung charlie)

I held out for Ethan's innocence for a while too, but didn't we get pretty good confirmation of Ethan hanging Charlie in Claire's flashback to those events?

I was hoping we'd get some confirmation of the FB question when they re-air the show next week in the 8pm time slot where they do the "pop-ups."  But alas, apparently they aren't going to do that next week...   :(  I'm bummed to miss that -- the pop-ups help a lot.

Instead, we get treated to something called "Miss Guided" --  ::)

I don't think there's really a question. Lots of evidence to point to FB, none to point to FF. Just talking about Jin of course. Even Squirt, who brought up the idea, agrees it's a stretch.

Cool idea and barely possible but, .... extremely unlikely.
