I should get up off my arse and go pee. So America has a new president. Congrats all. Wish we could get a new government. I have totally no confidence in the present load of TDs and ministers. But this is not a political blog, so that’s enough of that. BSG has just started its […]
I’m not sure what to make of this: Via Damien Mulley On one hand the first two Terminator films were great, the third was a bit pants, and too self-referential and mocking. On one hand it has Summer Glau in it, and who doesn’t love Summer?, but on the other, it has Fievel Mousekewitz in […]
I’m away tomorrow, so happy thanksgiving to all you Americans. I’ll be away Friday too. May be back on Sunday. We’ll see. Plans being the opposite of what I make, see ;) I don’t have any other planned posts to keep you all occupied. Too busy flicking through over 60 stations repeating over and over […]
Last episode of season 2 of Lost was on last night. And can I just say that this has to be the most pointless telly watching I have ever done. I don’t like the characters. Even Charlie is annoying at this stage. I despise Jack with his “leadership issues”. Kate is a moany cow who […]
During the final ad break of last night’s BSG a promo for Sky’s 10 o’clock news came on. It had one headline. Do you know what that was? The main news story was that Tom Cruise was going to… shock horror, a film premiere. And not just any premiÃ¨re, but one for Mission Impossible III, […]
Slacking off am I? I’ll give you slacking off I’ll make your eyes weep from reading so much. So I will. Or maybe not. I was listening to the radio on my way home from work yesterday, and I heard a comment that surprised me. Seems that an interrogation with An Gardaí is nothing like […]
Was perusing NineMoon’s site and noticed that she has become a Lost fan. I’ve been watching it since it started on RTE (12/13 weeks ago) but is a late-comer and reduced to E4 (who’ve just begun). Have to say I’m getting a bit weary of Lost never resolving anything at all, it could do with […]
This episode centres on Walt and Michael, with flashbacks of how Walt ended up not knowing his father, and living in Australia. As well as how Michael regained custody. We also see more hints that Walt is, as the episode title suggests, special.
But this show would want to start doing a little more than hinting.
I mean I do get that there are a whole load of characters and they all have their own backstories, but Lost is starting to drag. The problem, I think, is that every aspect of the story is arc-base. There is no resolution at all in any of the episodes, everything is focused on what happens next.
Episode # 13
A good episode here. I didn’t review the previous one Whatever the Case May Be because it wasn’t good and I didn’t have anything to say about it. This one however was very, very interesting.
We got to see Boone’s flashbacks, and they said a fair bit about his and Shannon’s history. I have to say I was a little unsure of their exact relationship and once we saw a little of their past it was safe to say there was no way they were just brother and sister.
You know Lost is starting to bug me. The storylines are interesting and the mysterious island is a great device. Throwing all these people together, the never knowing quite what to expect. All interesting and promising much. But despite this I often just don’t care what happens. Maybe it is down to Jack. I’ve said […]
I haven’t reviewed an episode of Lost in a while, mainly because I’ve been getting a little bored. Every episode seems to follow the same pattern with the flashbacks and the finding out the background of whomever is in the starring role And although this episode did have the same general structure, focusing on Sayid’s […]
Okay, so far we know that there are around 48 survivors of the plane crash, that there is some huge weird beast living on the island, that there are polar bears in the jungle, and that people aren’t straightforward (although I guess we should know that from real life right?).
This episode concentrates on Locke, the more-than-slightly odd fella.
