So, I was writing this in response to some of the replies on my own thread a few spots down, and it grew a bit more into something all its own. I've never been a major contributor, but I've soaked up all of your guy's endless theories with rabid conviction. I've posted or replied every once in a while, too. Anywho, I wanted to say thanks because it's been a blast. I hope this thing never goes down or goes away. Having said that, this is just something I wanted to share, fairly short and simple.
"I think I'm just going to have to resign myself to the fact that I was never meant to be a TV viewer. LOST, with its most captivating characters ever committed to screen (here's looking at you John Locke, Benjamin Linus, and Juliet Burke--in that or…Read more >
Truly, it's the only thing that has come close. My problem with TV in general is formula, predictability, etc. Procedurals and the like, i.e. Law & Order, House, etc., I just CANNOT do. Every episode starts with A) a crime, an illness, whatever, continue to B) the evidence or crazy illness theories, and concludes with C) the trial, or the REAL illness. Even Fringe has it's formula... Weird stuff, the Dad says "I worked on this in the 70's" and figures it all out with some sporadic gun fire.
Dexter though... The character development, the story arch, that freekin sweet intro, the story arch, the acting, the creativity, the conflict, the originality of the character (all credit to the original author)... Dexter will never replace LOST,…Read more >
In S5's Dead is Dead, Danielle shoots her beloved Robert saying that he has become infected by the monster... and while he is admittedly kind'of a d1ck when he calms her down before then trying to shoot her, the point is that she shoots back and KILLS him.
I am pointing out the obvious here, the fact that she killed her whole team, a story we've heard this insane French woman spout off about a-hundred times, to point out something that has only just been made clear after the S6 premier LA X; they may have been "infected" with something, but they weren't being directly inhabited by our dear ol' friend Smokey, AKA the Man in Black.
After the shooting spree that starts in the statue's base has settled, Ben walks wearily over and picks up from the grou…Read more >
Did anyone else get chills, ABSOLUTE chills seeing Flocke talk about how pathetic Locke was as a human being? The way his whole demeanor just flipped, Terry O'quinn's I mean; the way he completely changed the whole way we can or will ever look at John Locke again... he wasn't special, he wasn't chosen, he was nothing but a pawn is the elaborate, admittedly a bit convoluted, game. I know many have posted theories about this, and I'll let someone more eloquently spoken than I debate what this now means in terms of the show, but about the acting and the craft specifically, Terry O'quinn blew it out of the water, COMPLETELY in that scene. "Do you want to know Ben, do you want to know what his last thought was while you strangled him? 'I don't …Read more >
Two months ago, my best friend and I finally convinced my boyfriend and our other roommate to give LOST a shot. The roommate was hooked from the start, and never lost that drive, that insatiable need for the next episode. The boyfriend? On and off; there was at least a three episode arc in each of the five season where he TRIED not to make it too obvious when he'd say something like "I'm not really tired if you want to start the next one, I mean, I don't care either way, I'm just saying, I wouldn't mind." He's just the kind of guy who like to be the discoverer, he likes to be the one who tells you what you missed, turning you on to cool new things. When it's the other way around, it's like pulling teeth to try and get him into something.
