108 Minutes Edit

Initially called 42 Minutes & 108 Minutes, this referred to the respective minimum and maximum amount of LOST content which would be in each episode. Josh and Mike vowed to deliver a minimum of 42 minutes and a maximum of 108 minutes. If the maximum was exceeded, a crisis would be triggered and a consequence would be selected from the Frozen Donkey Wheel.

After consistent failure to adhere to the 108 minute maximum, it was announced on the "House of the Rising Sun" episode that the rules had changed:

A crisis is triggered if a podcast is less than 108 minutes long.
Episode Length (minutes) Crisis Triggered Frozen Donkey Wheel Consequence
In Which We Go Back 117 (numbers were not active) -
Last Call Before Rewatch 78 - -
Series Premiere: "Pilot: Part 1 & 2" 201
