Ah - tonight is the night I've been waiting some 8 months for... LOST is back. My only t.v. obsession.
Last night they rebroadcast the season finale from way way back when, complete with running explanations that came up in a bar along the bottom, which was very clever - and ingenious way to remind us all of about the plots and subplots without interrupting the action or making us sit through a retrospective.
I'm glad I tuned in because I'd forgotten so many details...
Like how John Locke was shot and left to die by Ben (who will always be Henry Gale to me). I really hope he figures out a way to redeem himself because I've always had a soft-spot for Locke -- but his actions of late are bit 'out there'. But it's interesting to see the faith/science undercurrent between him and Jack.
That Charlie 'sacrificed' himself. I'm probably the only person in the world who was happy to see the ex-hobbit kick it. My husband was quiet disgusted at my glee when Charlie Pace took his last annoying little breathe, until I reminded him that
A) he's just a t.v. character and
B) in real life, he's still living in Hawaii banging Evangeline Lily.
That shut him up.
That Hurly saved Sayid, Bernard and Jin -- making me think that perhaps this really is all in Hurley's mind - a la John Cusack in 'Identity'.
And the James 'Sawyer' Ford is so damn sexy! Perfect example of the alpha male.
I'd stay happily stranded on that guy's island ;)
