The LOST finale is upon us!

February 1, 2010

I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty stoked about that. In part it’s anticipation of amazingness, but in part it’s relief that I can retire this series that has, yes, brought me joy, but has also irritated the FUCK out of me over the years. (Also… a three hour broadcast? Are you kidding me? I feel like things are expanding beyond my comprehension. Will our grandchildren be sitting through 6 day premieres?)

I won’t miss the constant cliffhangers (just write a good show and I’ll keep watching it, GOD) nor the enormous cast of characters, nor the way to on the nose character naming.

But I will miss thinking about time travel paradoxes, free will and predestination, and men of faith vs. men of science. And I’ll REALLY miss Demond and Penny and Sun and Jin. I don’t know what I want to happen to conclude the series but if these couples don’t end up together and happy I’ll feel pretty crappy.

Everyone else deserves what’s coming to them.

In anticipation, a few losty links!

First, LOST Characters Explain How to Make a Sandwich:

1. Sit idly by, believing that the ingredients will find a way to make a sandwich out of themselves
2. Lose faith and make the sandwich anyway
3. Realize that you were the instrument by which the ingredients chose to make a sandwich after all
4. Run around the room and grab everyone’s knives, insisting that their sandwiches will do the same in time

But it’s ALL brilliant.

Then, a musical review of our questions, via.

Why didn’t the Dharma initiative automate that button pushing? What a terrible system!

And, most awesomely, LOST, recapped by someone’s extended Italian family.

“All right, he lives ovah in that foot ovah theyah.”

Happy LOST Eve!


Yes, No, Maybe So.

I’m watching this week’s Lost, and I just noticed that the actor who plays Miles does this thing that I notice some actors do, particularly James van der Beek as Dawson, which is to shake their head “no” while uttering a positive statement like: “He’s been right about everything so far.”

I don’t know if it’s a tell because they are, technically, lying by acting or what, but if you keep your eye out, you’ll notice it.

Hurley continues to be my favorite person ever on the island.

Dr. Chang: Your friend Faraday says that you’re from the future. I need to know if he was telling the truth.

Hurley: Dude, that’s ridiculous.

Dr. Chang: What year were you born? What year?

Hurley: Uh, 19… 31.

Dr. Chang: You’re 46?

Hurley: Yeah. Yes I am.

Dr. Chang: So you fought in the Korean War?

Hurley: There’s…no…such…thing.

Dr. Chang: Who’s the President of the United States?

Hurley: All right, dude, we’re from the future.
