102 – microwaved beer
we’re enjoying a heaping helping of Season 1, Episode 17, …In Translation. this implies “Lost” in Translation. like the movie! we provide mostly some helpful differences between the 2003 oscar-nominated film and this episode of Lost. we also talk about when Jin golf out of anger, is mean to his wife, and then everyone decides to be racist for a day. and don’t forget about the time Jin agreed to become an enforcer for his mob father-in-law!!this will be our last episode for a little while — we’re taking a break for the month of august, so we can be rested up for the final final push to the end of this wild journey. follow us @IslandShuffle and we’ll keep you posted on when we’re back! sometime in september probably! we also have a bonus episode ready to go for the downtime! thanks as always for listening!

100 – kissing and moaning
a HUNDRED ‘sodes!! we celebrate this historic milestone with a Classically Terrible Episode of the show. its of course Stranger in a Strange Land, Season 3, Episode 9. you might know it as “The Jack’s Tattoo’s episode”. it’s somehow worse than you remember it! Jack goes on a regular vacation where he flies a kite, kisses a Hot Lady, and then decides to ruin everything for no reason and gets banned from all of Thailand. in the present, Jack is in Jail, and Juliet is on Trial. but Sawyer??? Sawyer’s talkin to the fellas. on this beautiful occasion of 100 episodes, we say to you, here’s to a hundred more!! (or maybe like, 21 more, instead? yeah okay)

its the very first hour of the very worst season!! LA X (Part 1), Season 6 Episode 1 is here. Sawyer digs up his wife, and Ben does a bad job of pretending everything is fine. and in the alternate world, a humble plane that we love gently lands safe and sound… but the ISLAND is UNDERNEATH the OCEAN??? well well well!! surely that’s consequential. we regret to inform you that John Lennon is here, too. what’s the mystery about guitars? listen and find out, buster!

98 – light it up hotdog
it’s Sundown this week, season 6 Episode 6. Sayid wonders what happiness awaits him in an alternate world, because in the real world, he’s some kind of soulless zombie who everyone wants to kill. and even in the alternate world, the girl of his dreams is dating his brother, and his brother has to deal with a pie emergency!!! normally we make funny jokes but instead we spend most of this episode being mad at the show being bad. sorry!! being funny is hard

97 – volcano dad
it’s nugget time here on the Island Shuffle as we watch the legitimately pretty wonderful Season 1 Episode 5, named White Rabbit. Jack in the Past copes with a bad dad’s death, and Jack in the Present is stuck in a weirdly striking horror movie. the whole gang’s thirsty! meanwhile we talk restaurant tips and tricks, and realize the plight of a humble janitor with a dream. if you love to listen to our show, well… “Good for You!”

96 – throw another shrimp on the husband
it’s the Coen Brothers Check-In, but then we watch an episode of Lost like always. how about Season 1, Episode 10, Raised by Another? we learn about Claire’s past with the World’s Worst Man, and then a Slightly Less Worse But Still Bad Psychic. and in the present, Hurley does a funny census, and nobody believes Claire!! meanwhile we wonder about Big Pokemon and discover Ethan’s unfortunate political opinions. it’s an episode, for you? but you gotta listen to it!!

well it’s gonna have to be Season 3 Episode 13, The Man from Tallahassee this week.

92 – john locke has to take care of a little man underneath the surface of the earth
feels a little silly to write a description, everything you need’s right there in the title! well i guess we’ll provide the episode title, Lockdown, and tell you it’s Season 2 Episode 17. we’ll also tell you about Locke’s past, where he almost marries Katey Segal, but then his pesky ol dad fakes his death and gets up to no good. in the present, Locke gets Married! and Ben masquerades as a regular man from Walnut Ridge Road. we also provide some social commentary and revisit what it really means to say a funny Borat. it’s all a blur this week, baby!!

91 – the little peanut butter that i dolloped upon your dome
content warning: the flashbacks in this episode deal with domestic abuse, sexual assault, and incest. we keep discussion of this confined from roughly 3:55 to 16:05 if you’d rather skip it.bad episode this week, folks! it’s Season 1 Episode 13, Hearts and Minds. it’s a Boone episode, the only one! in the present, locke torments boone for incredibly normal reasons. and in the past, well? if you read that content warning and said “Lost can probably handle these subjects tactfully,” i’ve got bad news for you, bub. it’s a quick contender one of the all time worst episodes, but at least Hurley does a funny peepee and throws up. we also run down some stats and think about the road going forward into the canonical final 30 episodes of the show. thanks for listening!

90 – man on the bus
special guest Stephanie, of City Girls Make Do infamy, joins us for our 90th episode bonanza!! we watched Season 2, Episode 19, S.O.S, and it’s all about the beloved Rose and Bernard!! back in the day, they were in love, and guess what?? they’re still in love to this very day!! but is Bernard more in love with a man named Isaac? is Rose too committed to the roast? it doesn’t matter cause they’re both incredibly expressive actors. guess what? we liked it this week! the show was good! when even Charlie can contribute to the episode, you know we lucked out. happy 90 years to us, here’s to 90 more years

87 – a wise man once said that war was coming to this island. i think it just got here.
we recommend watching a youtube video with zero views instead of watching Season 6 Episode 10, The Package. this week, Sun and Jin find true and passionate love in an alternate reality where the mob is constantly hunting them down. then in real life, nothing really happens at all!! Sun forgets a language?? uhhh Widmore… says a word. truly some bad tv here today, even by season 6 standards. what’s the worst pet? listen and find out.
57 minutes | Apr 4, 2019
86 – god's special mirror
it’s Season 6 Episode 5, aka Lighthouse. we got those in the Maritimes, and Jacob has one too. it’s a good place to visit exactly once. Jack thinks about what if he had a son and the son didn’t like him very much. Jin has a busted leg and lies to a friend. Hurley and Jacob are best buds. in the tumultuous waters of this incredibly bad season of television, we can only hope that Ciggy’s Cove guides us safely home.

85 – i'm not crazy i'm just a little unwell i know right now you can't tell
CW: this episode deals heavily in unreality. its pretty strongly woven into the plot of the episode, and there’s no avoiding it, so maybe skip this one if you’d prefer. additionally, we talk about a suicide related scene from roughly 39:30 to 41:45.for christmastime we talk about Dave this week, season 2 episode 18. our friend Hurley struggles with mental health, trauma, and eating disorders, and a mean 3rd-baldest man named Dave gives everyone a piece of his mind. Charlie has a funny joke too, and good for him. meanwhile, Bean and James have a family and struggle to find a solution to our gravy problem, and James sharpens his standup comedy skills. it’s a great week for a forbidden pepper, and we’ll hit the bong to that!

84 – rick the dick
what do you think about culture and class in korea? well Season 2 Episode 5 “…And Found” has some thoughts and is eager to share them with you, cause it’s all about Sun and Jin baby!!!! in this episode’s past, Sun tries to find love and Jin tries to find a job. and in the present, Jin fights a friend and Sun wonders where Jin is. we consider some health care policy and master the art of the segue this week, and demand cusses from the queen. we have fun, in other words! thanks for listening
