Lost still blows my mind

Lost is back.

Holy crap you guys. I'm not sure how they continue to do it, but last night's season premiere blew me away. At first they were flashing back, then they were flashing forward, now they're just flashing indiscriminately all over the place and it still make sense. Kind of.

And even though a few major questions were answered last night, of course as usual many more questions were raised. But there is so much potential to go on this season it's gonna be awesome.

I don't even care if they know where they're going at this point because I'm just enjoying the ride. Although I do hope they know where they're going. But seriously, I hated the little reminders every commercial break that we were watching Lost because I kept thinking they meant the episode was over and I was like nooooooooooooooo.

I used to spend time wondering what was going to happen next week on Buffy. I spent a summer wondering who was at Veronica Mars' door. And now I spend a week wanting to know what the hell is going on on that island. There aren't a lot of shows that can do that, and there especially aren't a lot of shows that can do that after several seasons.

My only problem - who the hell loads their knives in the dishwasher with the blades up?


  1. Someone who puts tape over their door to see if anyone's broken in while they were gone. : )

    It was good. And I definitely agree with you - I'm not one of those people who are like, "Ahhh, I hate watching this show but I can't stop!!" I love the mystery.

    If the blades would stab through the bottom of the rack and interfere with the spinner at the bottom of the dishwasher, I put them in point up. Or if I notice they're slowly ruining the rack.

    They're only knives.

    P.S. I gave up on LOST a long time ago when I realized they were never going to explain what the giant monster was. Feh!``

  3. But they DID explain what the monster was! You have to be patient - like really really patient - to watch Lost.

  4. Anybody that gave up on Lost will be kicking themselves when it's over...and probably catching up with the DVD's.

    Are we that much of an ADHD nation that we can't stick with a show for six years that puts more thought into one episode than most shows do into their entire run?

  5. They don't get as clean, blade down~

  6. My ex used to put the knives in pointed up, but she did a lot of things that I wouldn't exactly call brilliant... (insert rimshot here)


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
