It's been a while since the Mailbox has had a gripe worthy of airing. First off, the Mailbox has to admit it was wrong. It originally said, "There was no freaking way" that there is a second island. Funny story: There is a second island.

This week's episode featured Hurley. The Mailbox loves these episodes, since Hurley's string of bad luck is so bad it's comical. This week in Hurley's flashbacks, a meteor destroys the Mr. Cluck's Chicken Shack he buys with his lottery winnings, and his dad shows up after 17 years. His dad tries to break the curse by rigging a psychic reading. The psychic had some cool looking tarot cards.

Meanwhile in reality, Hurley discovers a Dharma V-Dub Bus. complete with beers in the back. Who knows how long the beers have been there, but Sawyer eventually starts sucking them down.

The Mailbox's gripe: Who knows how long those cans of beer have been in a van, in the heat of a tropical island. And they drink them anyway?! The Mailbox has seen what happens to beer kept over a long period of time. Gets filled with nasty floaties.

Another gripe: Why does Hurley's father show up after 17 years? Should be 15 or 16, shouldn't it? For a show that has worked so hard to use 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42 and any combination or computation those numbers can make, it doesn't make any sense to NOT use those numbers everywhere.

Yet another gripe: Hurley's bad luck provided a great opportunity to kill off Nikki and Paolo in a hugely hilarious and awesome way. Yet they still live. WHY?!
