Take 2 of the Tom & Stu show sees us leapfrog 5 episodes (I doubt anything important happened in them...) to get to the Lost: The Tail Section season 1 recap episode, also known as The Other 48 Days.
The microphone merry-go-round continues as we employ our newest headset mic with super-duper in-built noise reduction. Still, audio is a bit on the rustly side (not least because I rustle my fair share of paper).

In an effort to mix up the voices you're hearing, for next week I'll be digging up 1 of 2 Buffy commentaries John and Brandon recorded some time ago . We were holding them back to be released in chronological order (they're for School Hard and Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered) but, hey, if this isn't the time to make use of spare episodes I don't know when is.

Against all odds I managed to convince my brother Tom to join me for a tour de stade of episode 1 of Lost season 2. Given that we haven't recorded a joint commentary for nearly a year, and the fact that the recording setup was different to what I usually use (which isn't that great in the first place...), the sound quality is not the greatest. Also, since I'd forgotten about 75 percent of this episode takes place in the dark, we tend to drift into general season 2 chat and therefore there are spoilers abound for the entire season.
[Scottish accent]Enjoy the show, brother.

Kicking off a new series of special episodes on cancelled shows is John Doe, the story of the guy who knows everything except who he is. Plus: News on Smith, Heroes, Eureka, Kidnapped and Standoff. This ep is a Stu solo effort, so slack may need to be cut...

In the second episode of Titus, called Sex With Pudding, Christopher fears that Erin is cheating on him. Things go from bad to worse when he learns that she's actually being sexually harrassed, by her Lesbian Boss! The show continues to turn sitcom convention on its head and tackle fresh, new areas of the human condition with hilarious results. Some stuff even gets set on fire!
Important News: I regret to inform the loyal listeners (all six of you), I will be absent from Sofa Dogs for at least a month. Recent money troubles have forced me to cancel my internet service. On the bright side, the show will still be around. Full hosting duties will be in the far more capable hands of my partner in crime, Stu. You can direct all questions and comments to him through firstname.lastname@example.org and as always, keep those iTunes reviews coming. They're very much appreciated. Also, the Sharecrow site has a new Top 10 section. I've recently discovered that Sofa Dogs is in their list of popular downloads, so a big thank you to those of you responsible.
Finally, I wouldn't normally do this, but if you folks would like to contribute a small donation to this site, you can do so at my paypal account through email@example.com. I hope you enjoy the show while I'm away and I hope to be back soon, putting you all to sleep again. :)
Warm and fuzzy love,

There was really no contest for the first non-Whedon show to get the review treatment. Yes, it's Gilligan's Isla...no, wait...it's not Gilligan's Island? Okay, our producer informs me it is in fact Lost, but I think you can see why I'd be confused...
In this first of (probably) four parts, we make our way through the highs (35,000 feet, sipping on vodka miniatures) and lows (sea level, juggling day-to-day survival and father issues) of episodes 1 through 6 of the first season.
