I generally confine myself to A&E, TLC, Discovery and whatnot, but I’m panting in anticipation about this show. Love it, love it, love it. Can’t wait to find out what’s under that steel plate. I hope it’s a pony. Who doesn’t want a pony?
Who’s backstory are we getting tonight? Please say Hurley.
Who the hell is Brian? I don’t remember anyone other than the majors and Scott and Steve being named yet.
Anyways, I wonder if al those 15 sec spots they’ve been airing over the past two weeks deal with tonight’s ep? Because if it is tonight, the TCM is back! Or, so it would seem, baseed on the very disjointed cuts of the action shown on that commercial.
The MEME (Multiple Episode Meanings and Etymologies) for tonight’s show is “Whatever The Case May Be”. Dictionary.com lists nineteen – count 'em – 19 definitions for the word “case” … some of which seem very pertinent. I’ve highlighted those in red.

I’m not really prepared to make predictions just yet. I can’t wait to see the show, though.
There’s a snowstorm outside today, and it usually takes me over an hour to get home under the best conditions. I forgot to set my DVR for Lost tonight (which starts at 7pm here). I’m considering leaving work early just to make sure I don’t miss the beginning of the show.
Sorry. It’s been a while since we’ve done this. I thought you saying ep 12 is about Brian. Silly me.
Okay, so Claire is gone, kidnapped by THEM or just Ethan? Will we find out tonight or will someone else disappear?
Also, how changed is Charlie, if at all? Is he going to start acting like Locke?
Will we ever get to know (before the last ep) just what was the crime Kate committed?
Will any other castaways see/find/talk to/have sex with Dannielle?
Will we actually see what the nature of the TCM is?
Can we please see Shannon’s gorgeous ass again? Please?
