Wheee! [In reply to] Can't Post

Not much to say, except that I really liked this episode! But then, I really like just about every episode!

My favorite part was the whole "bird" storyline, followed by getting more of Claire's backstory. I also loved the way the episode ended. Ane may I just say that Desmond is one of my favorite characters on the show? And that I'm really looking forward to seeing more of the Others again, especially Juliet?

lost spoilers [In reply to] Can't Post

Haha. Jack: "Touchdown!! YES! We are Marshall!!! (Oops. Wrong story...)" Kate: "What the hell?"
Well, I really liked Danielle telling Kate about how she knows that if she finds Alex she knows she wont know her. Can't wait for a Danielle flashback next season. I also enjoyed Charlie's reading of Claire's note and the fact that we finally learned more pre-planecrash Claire. Can you believe this was only her second off island flashback? It was great seeing her actively go and find out what was going on with Charlie and Desmond. This episode is a new favorite for me. We're getting answers again and week we find out how Locke got in the wheelchair!!! I think if the many people who have stopped watching see these episodes they'd fall in love with the show again.

OK. This has got to stop. Right now. It's just not fair ... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm pulling my hair out!

I don't have satellite on my TV. And here in the UK, Sky Television outbid Channel 4 to the airing rights of season 3.
Consequently, I am having severe Lost withdrawal symptoms. You know the feelings, the constant worry that Hurley may lose some weight and you weren't there to witness it. Kate and Sawyer get it on and you miss it. Jack stops being the self depravating medic and finally kicks back and you never knew it. So many things - and no current series.

Excuse me.

*Screaaaaaaaaammmmmmmmmmmm*

That's better.

And this weekly thread. Do I read or don't I? So I read and and discover all the stuff that is going on - and I want to weep. So I don't read - and stay in the dark, which is no fun.

The fact that I will have to wait until the dvd is released in utterly ... well ... so not on!

I have no idea why channel 4 missed out - they would not explain that to me - and no, I really don't want satellite - for the one programe that I watch, I don't need the 941 others that I would never need.

*sigh* Alright. You can go back to enjoying yourselves now, I've had my rant.

PS. Can you just tell me one thing? Are the Others the remnants of the original Dharma experiment, or not? Has this been divulged yet?

Thanks a million or 108.

River Woman, did you know you can watch Lost legally online? The episodes are here at abc.com. Before I had DVR I went there to watch if I missed an episode.

Thanks for that, Morwen ... [In reply to] Can't Post

I do know about the online stuff - right now my pc is old and clunky and freezes if anything too complicated/visual is run on it. I have tried watching on line, but get frustrated when the the whole thing freezes after two minutes. However, in a few weeks time, I will have a whizzy new pc, (hopefully with bells on) so that I can catch up with all of season 3. Laugh

I only hope that you can watch episodes retrospectively :o)

Strange thing is, House MD, is now very popular over here, yet channel 5 had no problem picking season 3 of the series up. I guess some things we will never know the answer to, nor understand.

Until the new pc arrives - I shall champ at the bit! But be warned - once I start watching ...

Good episode [In reply to] Can't Post

though killing off Russian dude didn't seem entirely necessary but that's one less character to worry about now. Locke is freaking insane (I'm beginning to really dislike his character). And Claire and Jack are siblings...nice. I wonder when that will be revealed to them? Will Charlie just die already...seriously! I know there are a lot of Charlie fans here (heck I was in season 1) but his character is increasingly more annoying with each episode.

What I like [In reply to] Can't Post

is that we're getting more questions! I don't care so much about the answers; they can be doled out sparingly. But what keeps it interesting for me is the twists and surprises they keep throwing at us.

I have to agree... [In reply to] Can't Post

to an extent. But there are still questions that have never been answered from season 1 (what was Jack's visions of his father all about? Why was Locke paralized {looks like we'll get that answer next Wednesday...finally}. What is the monster and it's purpose {sorry, but we really haven't been given a clear answer yet, even with more monster action in this season and last})?

I still love all the new questions that keep coming up but just like soap opera's, I fear many questions will never get answered (due to so much time passing).

I still love "Lost" though...still my favorite show on TV right now. Heroes comes in a close second though. Cool

What *I* think is... [In reply to] Can't Post

that either the DVD had better come out soon

or

it had better come back to mainstream TV channels!

now far ahead the road has gone

and yet those remain unchanged

We got a major hint about Jack's father on island... [In reply to] Can't Post

when it appeared that Mr. Eko's bro walking around was actually the monster judging, testing him, and getting him to do things. So logically we can assume that Jack's dad was also the monster. It did help Jack find the caves for shelter and his fathers body which like Eko's brothers body was also missing. My guess is the black smoke can read peoples minds and it treats people based on those readings.

Par Avion? [In reply to] Can't Post

What does that episode title mean?

i loved this episodeSmile. Finally we're getting some answers. So John and Jack are the only 'pure' ones that the others want. And to me it looks like that the others a planning on creating a society of people who are all 'pure' and good. I guess Cindy was one of the good ones too. Seeing the all so angry and stubborn Jack playing football with Tom was the most shocking thing ever! I was completley blown away.

Now that the Losties have finally found the others camp i can't wait to see what their next step would be! I don't watch any of the previews so i have no clue what to expect. All i know is that we'll learn about Locke's wheel chair problem.

This episode felt more like a season one episode. I feel LOST is picking up pace again. Everystory line was interesting last night. Loved the bird, loved the security fence, loved claire's flashback.

The episode title [In reply to] Can't Post

refers to sending the message with the banded bird (par avion = air mail).

If they have to cancel the series prematurely, I guess this gives them the option of having the castaways finally rescued! ;-)

I actually hadn't put those two together. The time between questions and answers is killing me because I keep forgetting what the mystery was in the first place. I need some diagrams and a flow chart to keep everything straight.

I've rewatched season 1 three times. Sseason 2 two times. And the current season once. It really helped me get excited about lost again.

Locke was one of my favorite characters in the beginning [In reply to] Can't Post

But his behavior has grown increasingly psychotic. I miss the old Locke who kept the group safe, provided boar meat and took every crisis in stride.

Locke was always [In reply to] Can't Post

a bit wiggy, even from the start. His flashbacks only reinforced the idea that he was not the most stable person on the island. From the moment he discovered that he had recovered the use of his legs, he seemed to me to go into some kind of world of his own, where he could live out his fantasies of adventure and survivalism. The whole episode with the hatch showed that he also was obsessive and highly suggestible. Everything he has done seems consistent to me with the picture of him we were given early on. "Keeping the group safe, providing boar meat, and taking every crisis in stride" was exactly the kind of role he envisioned for himself while trapped in that wheelchair — it was a kind of fantasy wish-fulfillment scenario for him. But when he is faced with more complex scenarios, his judgment seems to fail him.

I used to think that they messed up with Locke's character in season 2. That he was doing things that didn't fit his character. But your explainations makes perfect sense!

The Eye of the Island. [In reply to] Can't Post

I just thought of something.
The Russian told Kate that she would be unable to understand why they come back to the island because she was not on th list. Apparently the people on the list are 'good' and have a higher understanding or perspective than the rest and Locke is on that list.
So perhaps when Locke saw the monster in the begining of season 1, mabey he was able to use his super understanding to see the 'beautiful eye of the island' , while the rest still see the black smoky monster?

The thing I love most about the show [In reply to] Can't Post

is the complexity of the characters and how their backgrounds affect their behavior in an extreme situation. For me, the show is more about character development and interpersonal dynamics than about the "mysteries." The plane crash scenario, the Dharma Initiative, and the Others create a wonderful laboratory for exploring human behavior. I especially love how the flashbacks keep adding layers to the characters (or peeling back layers, to reveal things we never would have guessed). Just as in real life, we form snap judgments about people, only to find that they're not necessarily who we think they are.

I think perhaps this complexity is what bothers some viewers, who are more focused on the narrative of the story, and who want to be able to pigeon-hole the characters and their roles and then just get on with the story. But to me, that would defeat the whole point of the series.

Character development is crucial [In reply to] Can't Post

I agree that the character development adds depth to the show and is slowly answering questions raised by the narrative--and also creating more questions. This is, in part, what makes the show special. Mr. Echo's (sp??) backstory remains my favorite so far.

Anyone else have a favorite backstory?
