The Lost series finale was last night. I have to say, way to take the easiest way out by telling us that both that everyone was alive on the island and that everyone is dead now and they all died at some point earlier or later. Thanks again for not answering any questions about why the island is weird… couldn’t they all have come together in a regular setting in the “regular” world to work together to go on to the afterlife/church/whatever? I can’t help but feel that the writers really never planned to wrap things up and answer questions, they just made up crazy scenarios that they felt entertained us… and then just told us everyone is dead now after their life journey and learning faith and to let go. Oh, and where they “are” there is “no now.”
This last season was pretty terrible. I’m glad it’s over, now I can focus on more entertaining shows.
Did anyone catch last night’s episode?
It was revealed to us that both Dogen and Sayid made deals with Jacob and Fake-Locke to save someone they cared for at the expense of them staying on the island with a “job.”
If you recall, Juliet also made a similar deal with respect to saving her sisters life for staying on the island and doing her research.
Can we assume that Claire made a similar deal regarding her son, maybe one that she doesn’t recall?
Also, Sayid was instructed to stab Fake-Locke before he spoke. Does that mean that Sayid would have been able to kill him if he had followed directions or do we take Fake-Locke’s word that Sayid would never have been able to kill him, Dogen was just trying to get Sayid killed?
I realize the Olympics are on… but I think that regular seasonal shows have taken more than enough of a break. Come on. My Tivo still works! Come back shows. Now.
I’m so happy that Fall TV is back. My tivo is packed full of awesomeness and now that I don’t have homework I get to actually watch the shows. Wonderful. Thanks Fall TV.
What happened to the fun exciting Grey’s Anatomy of season 1? Relationships were forming, people were getting drunk and dancing on couches, there was no crazy massive disaster that required all hands…
Now I feel like every episode someone needs to die, someone has to argue with their best friend, and there must be crazy hospital failure drama.
Bring back season one style Grey’s Anatomy please.
Just as my schedule started to ease up, TV shows stopped airing new episodes and just showing us reruns… I’m not sure what about winter break brings on bad movies and reruns, but its always been that way and I don’t like it.
To make up for it I’ve spent hours on hulu.com catching up on my favorites (like 30 Rock) and watching whatever actual new show have been on. Last night I caught the new MTV show, “The City.” It’s a spin-off from “The Hills” and it was not a rerun. Anyone who watched or has a gf who watched The Hills has heard of Justin-Bobby, the on-again off-again “boyfriend” of one of the girls… Now Whitney has a love interest on The City, Jay, and I’m going to go ahead and call it now, he’s going to pull a Justin-Bobby. He’s not going to commit, he’s going to be randomly unavailable, randomly lovey-dovey… we already have him telling his roommate he doesn’t want to stop dating others, but surprising Whitney at a dinner party he said he wasn’t attending. I’m bored already. Luckily most other shows will pick back up this weekend.
I’m pissed that Dirty Sexy Money and Pushing Daisies have been canceled…
Fellow Trojan, T.J. Thyne of the Bones cast (playing Jack Hodgins) was seen yesterday at the Sherman Oaks Galleria in California.
Hope he had a relaxing Sunday afternoon…
Can’t wait for the new season to start.
Inbetween work, school, working out, and spending time with friends/family I use my TV to its fullest extent. If you don’t think having a TV is all that great, it just means you aren’t doing things right… Here is what you should be doing.
- Video Games – Thats right, use your TV for video games, even if you are an adult. Games are a great way to unwind. Personally I like the Wii for casual gaming, but the xbox 360 for more involved games and first person shooters. If you get the Wii…. must get Mario Galaxy, and then the wii fit (see my post about it here). This even doubles as your exercise, meaning less time at the gym, more time with your TV.
- Tivo! – You must get a Tivo! Tivo means you go to work and school and your shows effortlessly are recorded so when you DO have freetime you can watch exactly what you want, instead of that awful rerun of Mama’s Family. [Obviously you need cable or satellite to take full advantage of this] [Also, here is a link where you can save up $350 on your Tivo purchase]
- NetFlix – Tivo is great, and you get to watch a lot of what you want, but seasons 1-6 of Alias won’t be on, in order. Get Netflix, setup your queue, watch the dvd’s as they come and enjoy life. It is cheap and totally worth it. Worth all $5 a month.
Then again, if you don’t have a TV, just go to Hulu.com and watch some free tv!
So, I’m happily outlining for finals…ok, maybe not happily, but I’m doing it, and I have my TV on. Watching things on my tivo… Next thing I know it goes silent. What? Why? I look up and the screen says “Welcome! Powering up…”
I think to myself “well thats strange, its never powered up by itself BEFORE”
A few minutes later the next screen says something to the effect of “Just a few more minutes…”
Ok, you’ve totally interrupted my viewing experience, thanks Tivo.
I look up 5 minutes later and it says “Installing an important sevice update”
Ok, fine, this sounds legitimate…
A few minutes later, I get this AWESOME message “Preparing the service update. This may take up to an hour, possibly longer”
WHAT?!?!?!?! Wait a second, I never asked to install anything, why are you ruining the rest of my night? Couldn’t you prompt me for this?
Next thing you’re going to tell me you had to reformat and you’ve lost all my season pass info and my recorded programs…. I guess in an hour or “possibly longer” we’ll find out.
:shakes fist at tivo:
