Lost (spoilers)  
Well, that was a poor episode of Lost this week. No real plot advancement, no real revelations. And it sure was a bad time to not be white on that show. Poor little Kate can have a gun to her head, get shot in a fight, almost bleed to death and almost drown, but of course she's totally fine at the end. Our two Koreans and our Iraqi on the other hand? Not so much.

I can see the writers wanting to redeem Sayid by making him die a hero, but what was the point of killing Jin and Sun? I didn't find them dying together nearly romantic or moving enough to justify their deaths. Especially when one of them should have survived to raise their child, instead of leaving that task to her evil mobster father.

The only way that scene gets even partially redeemed is if Lapidus swam back down and saved them after the scene ended, and even then it's cheap piled on top of cheap. And I'm no submarine expert, but wouldn't three-and-a-half minutes give them enough time to surface the sub and throw the bomb overboard? I mean they obviously weren't down so deep that Hurley couldn't swim back to the island carrying Kate.

And the off island storyline was completely lame.

Oh, my god, a million little kids are suddenly marching down my street, right in the middle of the street, all babbling at once with their little kid voices! What is going on?

Well, leaving for the trip on Sunday. Might post a bit while gone, but no promises.

Yep.
My friend and I have had this tradition almost every week in regards to Lost this season. One of us will say for example, "Did you see this week's Lost yet?" And the response has almost always been "F__ing Lost! I don't even want to think about F__ing Lost."

In other words, they should have wrapped it up last season. That could be the problem when writing a story like this without an ending. It is like they keep stirring the pot, but the stew is getting really overcooked and hard to digest.

Right now it seems like they have turned the show into a scripted season of Survivor. Who will get voted off the show next? Bah! F__ing Lost.

So is that supposed to be an estimation of a nude Sun in the photograph?

Re: Yep.
Yeah, that's a good unofficial name for the show.

Hadn't intended it to represent Sun, although I'd be happy to post an appropriate photo of Yunjin Kim if I had one.

Have a good trip! Rest up and recharge.

Love this picture. Reminds me of my backyard growing up. *She's* way too skinny to be the girl next door though....

Did you ever figure out what those little kids were doing? Were they Obama-bots, silencing dissent while singing praises to their messiah?

(Ugh. Read too many right-wing websites today.)

All I could tell was that a bunch of them were wearing Saint Someone-or-other t-shirts, so so some Catholic school trip, I reckon.

Have fun!

Probably they are skipping school to egg cars or something.

I added "nature" and "jungle girls" (although is pushing it) tags to this. Never enough jungle girls, though, so we do what we can.

Ah, yes, road trip. How was it?
Diary of an Ass Monkeyassmonkeydiary on May 20th, 2010 03:49 am (UTC)
