Comments on "Lost"


1.) Can someone remind me of what Jack has ever done? How did that spaz ever get to be the "leader" of anyone? I don't get it. He's the most irritating character on the whole show, and maybe, on TV right now.

2.) Does anyone else keep thinking that we're going to find out eventually that Ben is actually a good guy?

3.) When do we get to see the charming Claire again?

4.) Who else thinks Sun is up to something sinister?

5.) Why couldn't Hurley have just said no to Ben, instead of giving himself up to the police, especially after AnnaLucia told him to not get arrested?

6.) I think Jin's still alive...

Can't comment on Lost cause I don't watch it, however, have you thought of doing a monthly review on music or movies? Like, kind of wondering what you think of new Killers CD and have you seen DiCaprio in Revolutionary Road?

2. Who is Ben?
3. Who is Claire?
4. Who is Sun?
5. Who is Hurley & AnnaLucia?
6. Who is Jin?

I'm so Lost. And why am I more than lurking on this blog now? :/

Just bear with me shortly, it won't last...

I really enjoyed Lost the first 2 seasons or so but when it reached season 4 I thought it had gone so off track...

I'm considering catching up though...or maybe not when I read some recent recaps and it all seems SO confusing;)

I've never seen an episode of Lost. When it first started, it was running against my favorite show, Carnivale, so I missed the first season, or two, and haven't ever bothered to rent the dvds to see what I missed out on. Is it worth it?

I'd say yes, Guin.

They're still lost??

Gretel is Guinevere? What's going on Guin!! I haven't been over to Bachmaniac in forever..is it still active? One month ago I bought the 'Carnivale' series on a whim (man am I behind the times) at Best Buy. I don't really watch TV. I got my whole family watching it and then I had to say sadly that at the end of Season 2, that was 'IT'- THE END. Holy Brother Justin!! (or I should say Unholy.)

But this isn't the place to chat up about our lives so....

1.) I always thought the show was centered around Jack, in a way. He's the guy you want in your inflatable raft, Tal. He's the doctor who enacts the mercy killings and cares for the well-being of the group and stuff. I think of it this way: Jack is the guy in charge of the physical aspects of survival, while Locke is the spiritual leader. You know? You've got the temporal and the transcendent covered between the two of them. You don't have to LIKE Jack -- you use his abilities to ensure survival, and leave the deep, profound and enduring stuff to Locke.

2.) Ben sucks. He gambled on his own daughter's life and lost, just the latest in a long string of abusive, amoral, and profoundly Machiavellian actions. He will never be a "good guy," whatever is finally revealed about him.

3.) I knew you had a crush on Claire. :P

4.) I think Sun is engineering some kind of devious and ingenious plot to render powerless or hopefully kill Widmore. Or at least deeply screw him over. And if we're lucky, Ben, too. Either way, you go girl.

5.) I don't know. He panicked? Point always is, it will probably turn out to have been the right thing to do, in the end.

6.) Me too, actually...

Jack is the 'everyman' he is a flawed character. He's tries to save people, when he's the one who could use some saving. He couldn't save his father, he saved his wife, but look where that ended up. He looks for confirmation that he is a good, worthy person through external sources. Eventually, inevitably this fails- and he spirals down. Fall and redemption, fall and redemption.

Ben is just plain creepy. I want to know what he knows though, creepy Ben has a secret. Maybe his horrible moves are justified... I can't figure it out.

I might find Claire charming if I was deaf. The way she speaks through her nose makes my ears bleed.

Sun wants revenge, for sure, and I think that she's gonna get it.

Hurley's actions confuse me on a pretty regular basis. But, his dad is Cheech... that can't be easy.

Jin is totally alive.

Whatever happened to that couple Bernard and his wife who had cancer, and then didn't have cancer??

and, where did the polar bears go?

Bernard and what's her name are still on, they're trapped on the island. They almost got fried by the flaming arrows the other night.
