OKAY, LOST.



I can't believe they killed Eko and brought in a Shannon replacement! For God's sake, keep the characters we love, and develop their backstories before bringing in new people. I don't even know why those extras are growing their damn parts. A) We don't need a LOST-mione. B) She's not that smart, guys. C) Even Sayid and Locke think she's bullshit.

And seriously?!?! Sayid is back so... where are Jin and Sun?! Did they seriously trek all the way back before the funeral, back across the island of reported disconnect?! Why aren't established characters JIN and SUN trecking along on this hatch-a-thon instead of Irritable Golf Boy and Princess Exposition? Also, Did they explain to Desmond how they lost the sailboat?

Also, how long has it been since we've seen that damn smogmonster? I'd almost forgotten about it. You'd almost forgotten about it. Yet, they bring it back, out of the blue, and kill Eko after the whole of last episode was all about Locke's need to saaaaaave him. These writers are clearly floundering. Flounder flounder flounder. Look at them go.

Well, it's Sweeps Week! Better write out the last black character on the island. Rose better watch out, 'cause I don't think Walt and Michael are coming back.

I can almost predict what will happen next. Jack won't operate on Benry 'cause he wants him to writhe. Benry will retaliate by trying to shoot Kate or Sawyer. Jack will obviously not be able to watch them die or be tortured, so he'll agree to operate. He will, however, be eyeing Muffin Cake as she gives him the "DEATH TO BENRY" eyes. He'll be sweating, then he'll turn around and breath out a deep huff, fight back tears, terse up his lips, and fix Benry so he can kill him later. At this point, the Others are the only real plotline, and sorry... but they're kind of lame.

Evidently, there's an "emotional cliffhanger" before the break in the season. So my prediction? It's got something to do with Sawyer or Sun and her baby. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. If they kill Sawyer, I'm out.

I'm so pissed. I can't even. I really liked Eko, and there was no reason for him to die. I loved his relationship with both Locke and Charlie. He was such a cool, gentle giant. Oh, and a total badass. Requiscat en pace, Eko.

I think I'm starting to dislike this show. I never thought that would've been possible. I've heard some buzz, and I would totally understand if J.J. leaves after this season, but I'm not sure if he's the problem or if the writers really are just ADD kids with a TV show.

ETA: I love that my flist is basically rioting right now. Damon, J.J., you done pissed off the wrong crowd, I tell you what.

hi!! i'm a stranger commenting on your lj!!

you are so right about Lost. i started watching the show in the 2nd seson, which was almost entirely devoted to the tailies. so they were all i knew. i never even got attached to the other characters: Charlie, who? and Ana-Lucia was my favorite character.

and then she was shot and i was so shocked. i was like what the hell was the point of these last few months? as soon as she sunk to the couch i shut off the TV. and i never watched Lost again. i didn't even watch Next Week On Lost.

Hello! and welcome! It's kind of crazy here, but I like it. :) How did you find me?

I think it's really funny because as someone who started in the very beginning of the show, the introduction of the tailies really irritated me. Incidently, Ana Lucia has been my least favorite character in the history of the show. ;)

Season 1 was definitely the best of all, but that's normally the way it goes, I suppose. Ah, well.

Er... minus that last 'o' in the above "too." Got a little overzealous there.

As a point of interest, I too tried to strangle myself with my umbilical cord. I was a little more purple than usual, and they thought I was stillborn at first. It would appear that they were incorrect.

Stillborn? Not me, baby. No, I'm a fighter.

They will never kill Sawyer. Trust me.

And I don't think many people realize how little JJ Abrams has to do with the show. He helped create it and then disappeared. He doesn't help write it or produce it, although he will direct one next year.

He's been doing some of the writing, I read. But still, all his creations have this problem. Alias... like those fans ever really got the resolution they needed? Nope.

I don't know. They seem to be flirting with the idea. The "next time on LOST" blah blah, WHATEVER. Just give me season one back, give me a couple hundred thou, all the actors, and I'll FIX IT.

i'm totally pissed that they killed Eko, but I still just love this show. No matter how many times I yell out "I HATE THIS SHOW" during the episode, I still love it.

AND THE EYE PATCH MAN SCARED THE CRAP OUT OF ME.

I totally scream that all the time. Sometimes, if I'm eating popcorn, I will hurl kernels at the television. I am quite excitable.

I AM NOT AFRAID OF THE WANNABE PIRATE WITH HIS LENS-TURNING-OUT-OF-FOCUS WAYS. I WILL SHANGHAI HIM, AND FEED HIM TO THE BEASTIE.

WORD.

killing characters for the sake of it is NOT COOL and does not make the show more interesting if there's no reason (though the episode WAS interesting)

you know how they say there are 5 stages until you accept death? Well, me = ANGER
