Last Night's Lost

First off – you know how last week I said I was going to boycott American Idol once Chris got knocked out? Well, it seems hubby, without actually acknowledging it has gotten hooked on it too. I didn’t ask him to put it on Wednesday night – he just did. And since I was in the room – well.
And then last nigh I found Lost came on at 7:00 so I had to watch it then. And again hubby put on American Idol at 9:00 and since I was in the room – well.
I’m not sure what he would have done had the Jays not been playing on the West Coast.
Anyway – quickly – since I was in the room, I think I’m going for Taylor. Katherine is a very good singer but I just find her over-singing a wee bit too much. Unlike Simon, I just wasn’t as enthused about her rendition of Somewhere Over the Rainbow. I thought it a bit of a rip-off of Fantasia a couple of seasons back. And she oversang it I thought. And I love the Boss. Never could really understand what he was singing as he mumbles and CD’s don’t come with words much – not like albums used to. So when Taylor sang Dancing in the Dark for the first time I ever I understood the words. Very shallow reasons for choosing who I want to win I know. And Elliot? I think he’s a very good singer but I’m just not that fond of the type of music he sings. He seems like a very nice guy though so I hope he goes far.

Now – on to Lost.

Hmm – not as confusing as past episodes. In fact some of the questions like what happened to Michael were answered. Is it just me or is he really kind of stupid? I mean, does he really think they will let him take Walt and just merrily wander off? And let’s face it – he hasn’t been the best dad material. In fact right in the airport before the plane was about to leave he was talking to his mother saying he didn’t want Walt. And he’s been kind of rough on him since they landed on the island. I was trying to figure out why the Others wanted Jack, Kate, Hurley and Sawyer. What is it about those four I wonder. If it was just good people they wanted, I wouldn’t have picked Sawyer. And if it was bad people I wouldn’t have picked Hurley. It seems a very mixed bag.
I wonder where Locke is taking himself off to. I guess he was pretty shattered by last weeks revelation that it was just an experiment.
Nice to see Charlie throw those statues in the ocean – but where did they come from? Whose stuff were they in? I didn’t catch that. I also missed where he found the vaccine he gave to Clare. It was nice to see Clare reach out to him though.
And Sawyer – what would my night be without thoughts of him. He seems pretty broken up about Anna Lucia’s death and the fact that he never took the time to get to know her. And admitting that Jack is the closest thing he has to a friend. Aaahhh. I think Sawyer is one of the most interesting characters on the show – and I’m not just saying that ‘cause I think he’s hot. Yea – that’s one of the reasons J but there is more. I just wish we had had more than one back-story on him this season. I read somewhere that at times the actor who plays Sawyer finds it difficult to read the lines with some of the insulting comments Sawyer comes out with.
I’m a preview slut. I love the previews of coming movies at the show or on DVD’s. I love watching trailers. The channel I watched it on at 7:00 last night didn’t show previews from next week but I knew they would show them on ABC. So I made hubby, who never has understood this need I have, turn it over to ABC so I could catch them. He was a tad annoyed with me – I think he wanted to watch Elliot sing his final song. Either that or he wanted to watch the hockey game.


'til later

Lost, was a transition episode, setting up the season finale. It was good to see what Michael had been up to. I love the coming attractions and can't wait for next week.

whispering...I don't watch AI.

I'm bummed that Elliot was voted off but I'll be okay...I wanted Chris to win, so now I don't care...do you think he'll join the band Fuel and be their lead singer?

Dylan: You don't know how much I hate admitting this - but I'd never heard of that band until it came out that they asked Chris to join. It blew my delusions of being a hip'n'happenin' non-granny all to shreds I tell you! Well - that and the fact I still can't figure out how to use a DVD player, a cell phone, how to tape on a video, not knowing what TiVo is - oh dear now I'm really depressing myself. But I will make a point of listening to their music. Of course my YOUUNGER sister is even more out of step than I am. She'd never heard of the infamous Tom Cruise jumping on the couch incident until I told her.

Tara Marie - I watched the first season of AI and haven't been able to stomache it since. I don't like seeing people make fools of themselves and some of the auditions are just horrifying.

LOST - yum.

It's a good thing that they put how many days it had been since Michael had left because I keep thinking in 'our' time - months.

I loved the scene where Charlie threw the Marys into the ocean - go Charlie!

Okay, Vincent brought him the first Mary and then led him back to Sawyer's tent where Sawyer kept the guns and the medicine. Sawyer had found Charlie's stash the last time Charlie had planned to destroy them and Sawyer took them. So that is where they came from.

Sawyer got me all woozy but then I think he is so funny with the 'we were in a net'. Sometimes he is so obtuse ;) Sawyer's closest friend is Jack? Wow.

I liked that Sayid figured out what might be happening - mini squee.

I thought the scenes between Michael and Walt were touching - Walt yelling that he loves him and begging him not to leave him there. I was blubbery.

What I am struggling with is that Michael *chose* to shot Ana Lucia. At no point - at least were we shown - did they tell him to do that. That's all on him and now I don't know what to make of him. He could have easily told the 4 people he needed (okay, Sawyer would have needed some talking to) what had happened and I think they would have all volunteered to go. Michael isn't thinking straight because there is no way they are letting anyone go BUT, I think he truly believes everything he saw - two guys guarding the hatch and everyone else in tents.

Theory on the list. Jack and Hurley are the innocent - not as innocent as some but more so than most. Sawyer and Kate have both killed other people so they are tainted. That's as far as my theory goes ;)

Huge thank you for always allowing me to come over here and gush about LOST.
