OH MAN! For this, I think you can have Butter break into your house and set the DVR.

Or, put the kids to bed early and tell the wifey that you'll talk to her in 2 hours.

Yeah...we're all in a hotel room together and we're watching in Central time.  So LOST starts at 8 p.m. here.  I doubt I can get the kids to sleep by 8.

There is always the website though.

I just gotta' say that they better deliver this season...they got some 'splaining to do.

Doesn't Lost start at 8:00 p.m. Eastern tonight? So it would start a 7:00 p.m. in Chi-town.

I believe the 8 p.m. Easter (7 p.m. Chi Town) show is a clips show.  The premier is from 9-11.  I could be wrong though.

Oh, and my mom heard that Sawyer is shirtless basically for all of his screen time.  MK, I'm looking at you (though not for long, as Sawyer will be shirtless)

That's just unfair.  Where be the shirtless women?

Do you have DirecTV?  If so, you can activate your online account and set it up to record over the internets.

I love the Boston Globe's review of the first two hours:

"Truly, the "Lost" premiere is riveting, which, for a two-hour episode in the later stages of a series run, is an impressive accomplishment. Please, please, please don't let "moving the island" become the new three-word phrase for what happens when a show loses its sense."

I'll be watching the ocean for Fonzie on waterskis being pulled by Penelope's boat.

I was not overwhelmed by the premier.

While I wasn't disappointed, I did find it highly implausible that ...

(1) Hurley's first instinct would be to take Sayid to his parents' house and not immediately to Jack and (2) that Hurley could be all over the news, but his father had no clue that he was wanted until the cops showed up (inexplicably) 12 HOURS after Hurley's escape.

We did end up watching it last night.  We brought a portable DVD player, so we set the kids up with a little movie theatre of their own...basically a fort made out of towels, chairs and pillows.  So they watched the Spongebob movie and we got to see Lost.  Although, they went to bed before it was over and Sawyer banging on the door to the hatch freaked my oldest son out.

I thought it was a pretty good show.  One thing I noticed is that the flashbacks used to make sense, in that they were flashbacks.  Now, they use the same convention to introduce the flashes, but they're all over the freakin' place.  Similar to how the island is, I guess.  As the island has detached from time, so has the narrative.  I find this method of storytelling to be confusing and exhillarating at the same time.
