My radio show co-host Jon posted a short movie on YouTube titled Massacre on West Capitol thatâ€™s pretty much typifies his sense of humor. (Jonâ€™s the guy wearing the bathrobe that is killed in the bathtub. And, no, Iâ€™m not giving anything away by saying that.) You can watch it here.
Some thoughts on last nightâ€™s episode of LOST (donâ€™t read unless you want to know what happened):
- Finally! Instead of just eluding to the second polar bear, we finally get to see it (albeit for a few seconds). What was up with the skeleton wearing the Dharma Initiative t-shirt in the polar bearâ€™s cave? Maybe their animal experiments got the best of them. And weâ€™ve seen brief flashes that thereâ€™s some other strange animal life on the island.
- Had mixed reaction to Lockeâ€™s flashback. Most of his past life seems to involve him being used to further the agenda of other people that gain his confidence.Â Okay, we get it already. Locke feels like a sucker. I already knew that! Are we building to one big decision Locke is going to have to make based on his past experiences? There better be a good payoff to this because last night his flashbacks bored me. I find it interesting, however, that heâ€™s never shown doing the same job twice. (Heâ€™s worked in a toy store, as a home inspector, a gun runner, etc.)
- Iâ€™m glad the writerâ€™s are brining in the island as a character again. Iâ€™ve always thought it was the more intriguing than just about anyone else on the island.
- I found it kind of creepy that Desmond knew about Lockeâ€™s speech before he gave it. It made me think he was traveling backwards in time ala Merlyn in T.H.Whiteâ€™s The Once and Future King. Of course thatâ€™s not possible but thatâ€™s what crossed my mind as he was throwing rocks in the ocean at the end of the episode.
- Poor Hurley. Once again heâ€™s the character no one else on the island cares much about.
Looking forward to next weekâ€™s episode as they head back to Kate, Sawyer, Jack, and the Others.
