Well, I'm still Lost
You killed Eko. You bastards! I'm so pissed. My wife is (was) jealous of my man-crush on Eko, so she's happy.
"Lost" is now three for three with actors that have run-ins with the Hawaii police. If that doesn't keep the rest in line, I don't know what would.
It will take me some time to work through my grief. In the meantime...
It's outstanding how awful the new characters are. It's like they're dubbed in after the fact.
You ever see "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead"? It's "Hamlet" as seen through the eyes of those two minor characters. Famous riff on the classic. This is like that, only, you know, bad.
And, as I recall, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern get executed at the end. We can only hope these new characters were introduced so "Lost" can keep the body count up.
On a related subject, I was thinking last week how refreshing it is to see Jack played as smart. I still feel that way, although I think Ben's playing him. Him and maybe Juliet, too. Riddles within riddles.
Did the thing with the cards remind anyone else of INXS' "Mediate"... now I've got it stuck in my head: "Hallucinate/Desegregate/Mediate/Alleviate/Try not to hate/Love your mate/Don't suffocate on your own hate/Designate your love as fate/A one world state/As human freight."
And now you've got it stuck in your head too. Hee hee.
