TV on the Internet, Episode 30: (Insert Lost Pun Here)

So, getting the second TVOTI episode at MediaElites up could have gone a lot more quickly, but we here at TV on the Internet enterprises are not known for our hustle and/or keeping our eye on the ball. In the future, though, we'll endeavor to get these 'casts recorded on Wednesday or Thursday and have them up by Friday, as that works with our schedules. This week, we talk about Lost because ... why not? Also, we talk about how Chuck has killed love forever and how much Todd loves The Millionaire Matchmaker (somewhat atypically). Also, it's our longest episode yet, though we have little to no real idea why, since we cut all of the tasteless jokes Todd was making.

Thanks for all your comments and criticism. They're helping us make the show better. If you like us, please review us on iTunes. We WILL take out the Official Lost Podcast! We WILL!

We're available on iTunes, or you can check us out at Podcast Alley, Podcast Pickle or the TV on the Internet libsyn page.

Look after the jump for complete details.
