All That For A Toy Airplane??

All that for an airplane??

Hurley creates a golf course  and starts a census (I’m starting to love him), Prego (Claire) has a freaky past and is kidnapped by Tom Cruises’ cousin (Ethan?), Sahid finds Frenchy, Charlie is almost hung to death and Kate risks it all for a…um…toy airplane?? Now I know hindsight is 20-20 but if I’m Kate’s mom I’m advising her to stay away from planes of all kinds, they’ll only get you arrested and stuck on deserted islands. I should have known something sinister was afoot when we were ACTUALLY going to get an answer! Jack makes Kate show us what’s in the envelope! For Kate to conspire in holding up a bank it must be…the Kennedy assassination papers?…info on the Roswell landing?…bank account numbers?…family jewelry?? Nope just more questions in the form of a toy airplane. At least Kate tells us/Jack that’s she’s responsible for the death of someone she loves. Finally some info on why Kate is so broken. The writing on this show is clearly top notch and you have to love the subtlety of Sawyer being the one that helps Kate find the suitcase while Jack helps her re-retrieve it (from Sawyer of course), open it and eventually is the the one she confides her secrets to. I still think she’s gonna pick Sawyer.

Now not to burry the lead but The Others kidnapped Prego! I guess I was totally wrong about The Others being the people from the other half of the plane which is bad news for me and Rose who is heart-warningly still holding out hope her husband is still alive (sucker!). Prego’s backstory is my favorite so far. Her clairvoyant psychic (ha get it) either sends her to her death OR sends her to the island. Maybe the psychic knows about The Others and wants them to have the baby. Or maybe The Others are just a creep cult that want to worship the devil baby. Either way can’t the tribe do better than “the trail went cold?” Jack has the right idea, find Frenchy and torture everything she knows about the island and The Others out of her! At least go back to Frenchy’s hideout and see if you can use any of her equipment to get off the island!

And then there’s the hatch (wow a lot of things are going on right now).  What the hell could be in there? The lab where the invisible dinosaur was created?The source of all the crazy magic? Something that I don’t quite understand (and maybe someone can explain it) was how did Locke escape the invisible dino-thing? Or was he being attacked by a boar? I didn’t get it but after he came back he was talking all this “I’ve seen the heart of the island” mumbo-jumbo and I thought maybe he knows something the rest of the tribe doesn’t.  Well I hope it’s how to make TNT because if he wants to open that hatch I think he’s gonna need to blast…

Finally I need to say something about Hurley. He’s the man. It’s about time someone on this island decided to have some fun. Just wait till he discovers Kate and Sawyer’s swimming blue lagoon and starts games of chicken and marco polo (writers please any excuse to see more footage of Sticks in a bathing suit). Conversely I’m hating Michael. He really needs to treat Walt like a person instead of just yelling at him all the time…and not offering his son a chance to golf when it was his turn up…that’s just cold. I’m not sure what’s going on but first you abandon your kid and now you just yell at him all the time. You won’t be receiving the magic island father of the year award anytime soon..

Next up Boone and Locke try to open the hatch and I’m hoping for a spectacular rescue mission for Prego led by Locke. Those guns from Kate’s briefcase just might come in handy…

Whodunit

Whodunit??

Another 4 episode clip finished and here’s the recap: Each episode continues to flashback into one characters past, Locke continues to play the part of the colonel and rehabs Charlie, Jack wrestles his demons and wins immunity and control of the tribe, Sun speaks english (finally I predicted something right, too bad I didn’t blog it) and saves Sticks from her breathing problems, Jack goes all Swiss Family Robinson and leads the tribe to the cave sans Kate, Sawyer isn’t even his real name and……Sayid gets hit over the head while trying to triangulate the power source!!

Now I don’t want to brush over all the rest but I need to take a crack of whodunit. Out of all the main characters I *think* only Rose (is she a main char?), Preg0 (what’s her name?) and Locke weren’t accounted for. I believe everyone else was digging out Jack or helping out Sayid in his 4th of July experiment. I’m ruling out Rose because of motive and Prego because she ain’t walking that far which leaves Locke or a yet-to-be-met character. Locke is very suspicious because he does too good of a job convincing Sayid it was Sawyer (even though the audience knows it wasn’t) and I’m not sure he wants to be rescued from what he dubbed “magic island” because unlike at home he has a role and is respected. That being said, I’m going to pin it on a yet-to-be-met character. I think they’ve all landed on magic island for a reason and I think someone is out there conspiring. Which brings me to this point…finally Sayid brings it up, there’s NO WAY the tribe should have survived a plane ripping in half at their altitude and no way they should coincidentally have landed on magic island (unless that’s part of the magic).

So if it’s not already obvious, I’m loving the show (clearly since I’ve ripped off 8 episodes already). No answers have really come so far which is a bit frustrating but let’s face it how many answers can they get after 6 days on a deserted island. Once Jack gets life stable for the tribe I think the first mission should be to explore the island and find the power source. There seems to be only 1 invisible dino-thing so it’s worth the gamble. Finally I need to talk about a couple of the characters. So far I’m loving Kate, Hurley and Locke. I like Jack a lot, Prego’s got some spunk, I’ve got high hopes for Sun and then there’s Sawyer. He’s the character we’re told to hate but hope he redeems himself because he had such a rough life. The Jack-Sawyer-Kate love triangle is going to be interesting but I think Jack’s gonna lose out. Sawyer’s just too damaged bad boy goods for Kate to resist, and unlike Sawyer, Jack won’t do whatever it takes to get with Kate…

Who gets the next character flashback? Unfortunately I think the alarm clock has gone off for the annoying dad but I’d like to see what Sayid is up to…

Superman can’t walk…but Locke can!

Why didn't I think about where the wheel chair came from??
I’m as bad as my word. My Friday afternoon was spent watching the first disc of season 1 and I’m hooked. What the hell is going on?? Kate is the prisoner…didn’t see that one coming. Locke is/was a cripple with a life dream of hosting his own edition of “Man vs. Wild”…definitely didn’t see that one coming. Until the episode “Walkabout” (bravo job on the naming writers) I thought the colonel was Lost’s version of Creed (although having a 1-900 gal as his love interest does no favors for his creepiness factor). So what sums up my thinking after 4 episodes….um what the hell is going on?? What could Kate have done that caused a $23K bounty on her head? I’m going to go with misunderstanding here because I think she’s good at heart. Why does Jack/Charlie keep seeing a man in a suit? And how is the hobbit going to hold up when he has to go through withdrawal on a deserted island??

So after 4 episodes I think I’ve reached a point to make some predictions. Um I’m thinking the dinosaur thing is invisible?? I also find it very suspicious that the french chick keeps counting up. I don’t think Doc Brown had that voice counting technology in 1988 (2004-16yrs) and I’m assuming she hasn’t been sitting around on the island just counting away for eternity. As far as the french chick goes, she seemed like she knew exactly who she was talking to in that help message which makes me think her and her demised companions went to the island on purpose, or at least she did. I also think Rose’s line about her husband surviving is alluding to these mysterious others I’ve heard about. And on that note, how the hell did anyone survive if the plane got ripped in half at that elevation??

Well one CD down and lots more to go. I’m not sure how the show is going to deal with time so who knows when prego’s gonna pop. So far in 4 episodes we’ve traveled 4 days. At this rate she might give birth by season 2. Not sure how they’ll handle that little kid growing up…

Finally Lost!!

Episode 1 here we go...

I have always had a difficult time waiting to find out the ending of my favorite movies, TV shows & books. My resume of obsession includes watching Season 1 of 24 in 3 days, watching Season 2 of 24 in 18 hours and reading each Harry Potter book in one sitting. Knowing that I would love and become obsessed with Lost, I decided to wait before the last season to begin watching it. A friend has lent me 5 seasons of Lost so I am finally ready to start.

My TV Forecast widget tells me there are only 82 days left before the start of the first Lost episode (called LA X) and I plan on watching all 103 episodes before then. I think I should start out by telling you what I do know about Lost, which surprisingly isn’t much at all. I know they are obviously stuck on an island and there are “others” who crash landed but we don’t seem them until a later season. I know Charlie from Party of Five is on the show as well as one the hobbits. Judging from some of the commercials I’ve seen, they all must eventually get off the island and I think the island is some sort of government experiment or alien lab. Finally I know season 2 or 3 is really frustrating because you never find out any answers and a lot of people bailed on the show then. Other than that I’ve been able to keep woefully ignorant about the show and hope no one will post spoilers before I get there.

Finally I wanna give a shout out to a friend of mine who gave me the idea for this blog. She is doing a similar exercise while reading all the Harry Potter books for the first time.  A bunch of us have had a good time reading her thoughts and mocking her predictions as she goes through those books for the first time. You are welcome to mock my predictions as I discover how wrong (or right) they turn out to be. 103 episodes feels really daunting right now and I’m nervous I’ll want to bail when season 2 or 3 gets slow, but hopefully I will like the show.

So here we go, Episode 1 to Episode 103 for the first time ever, I’m Finally Lost…
