LOST (spoiler)

those of you that watch and have seen it, what did you think? I thought it was really good, but I'm pissed bc the last season doesn't come on until 2010. anyways, i have 2 questions:

1) I was watching jeopardy and the question was about a physicist from a while back, and the answer was Daniel Faraday. So why does LOST also have a physicist named Daniel Faraday?

2) Where the fuck is Claire?

Whats in the hatch? What is all this black smoke monster? DON'T STOP PUSHING THE BUTTON! Dude...I'm lost. Seriously, and I don't watch this show, but do they ever actually tie the stories up or give some kind of explanation? Cause it always seems like they just drag shit along and don't explain a thing. What the fuck was that black smoke thing anyway?

I was pretty lukewarm on that finale. It was fairly tepid until the last half-hour or so, with the Jacob flashbacks becoming increasingly tedious. The plot turned on Juliet's somewhat juvenile misgivings about Sawyer. ("You looked at that girl funny, which reminds me of my parents' divorce, so yes, we should set off a hydrogen bomb.") The electro-magentism crisis was exciting, but the climax, with "Locke" being revealed as the guy from the first scene of tonight's episode -- someone whom we really have no relationship with -- didn't resonate. It might be effective groundwork for season six, but it's not a very smashing way to end season five.

1st, let me just call out prime for copy/pasting another person's opinion of the finale. after i read that, i knew it wasn't his style of writing so i googled it.

bosk- stop hatin if you don't watch. yes, they tie back the stories, but they can't tie back everything at once or else there would be no appeal to the show. by the end of next season, everything should make sense and tie back together.

did you guys notice that jacob made a point to physically touch every person that he met with in the flashbacks? also, do you think that was really locke? could it have been that guy they showed in the very beginning of the episode? after all, that guy said he wanted to kill jacob, but couldn't unless he found a loophole. then, jacob said at the end i guess you found a loophole... and who was that guy?

prime- not sure i agree with you about juliet's rational. i think she knew sawyer's heart was always for kate, and every time kate was back in the picture, juliet just knew he would eventually go back to her. so she wanted the bomb to go off so she would never meet sawyer in the first place.

i havent read anything yet because i havent watched it yet. but when i saw a prime reply i was like theres no way that fool watches lost. scroll down to see nate had done some detective work. typs prime, but very funny

Staboski said...

You guys didn't know that Prime was a ghost blogger for the LA times? No but seriously did they ever explain what the black smoke was?

Prime said...

hahahahahahahahhahahahahahah....weakkk

nyphon said...

bosk (about smoke monster)- actually, i think they might have (about 4 or 5 episodes ago), but i forget haha.

it's not really a big part of the show. but it has something to do with the island judging people. so for instance, ben had to confront the island to determine if he has been worthy and loyal to the island. to do this, he had to confront the smoke and the smoke let him live. same goes for Eko. he confronted the smoke, but it killed him instead. plus, i think every time someone hallucinates while on the island (i.e. see someone who is dead) i think it's the smoke that does it.

in short, i think the smoke is a judge of morals, who represents the island.

Prime said...

sounds like a kids cartoon show....

nyphon said...

prime what cartoons did you watch where people were murdering in cold blood?

might explain a lot....

Prime said...

roadrunner....all sorts of killing attempts

You want to know what Boski says...

With friend and foe we march to the battle plain
Some to seek success others to seek fame
We play with honor for the love of this game
And with armor or without we will toil in vain
So that someday someone somewhere will remember our name.

Prime said...

hahahahaha i meant to google that piece, what an awesome speech

pex said...

haha wow, i dont even watch survivor but still very funny

Prime said...

just had to post this up here for bosk...i was reading this recap when I was looking for coach's exile island speech and started dying laughing at the last comment....

Immunity Challenge Time: Coach arrives at the challenge, having not eaten for the past few days. Can’t say I understand this strategy. But, in all fairness, he has carved himself a sweet Dragon Slayer cane.

Staboski said...

Man that was a Dragon Slayer Staff, not a cane. Man he didn't eat drink because he was the "last Mohican"

Staboski said...

Man Pex you should peep this season of survivor if you get a chance, this guy is pure classic.

A few epsiodes ago he standing in the river doing this meditation/kung fu moves and one of the guys goes hey coach what were you doing? He says "It's called (something like chow young fo or just insert some random sounding kung fu style)" He then says...and this is great "If you do a google search you won't find it; it's only passed down verbally."

pex said...

hahahaha awesome. the only survivor ive watched was when i was home for spring break over at debs. was the recap show which showed some good coach footage. im sure id like it, but im not into watching survivor solo

nyphon said...

i was so mad they voted off coach. there will be no entertainment value now. i also think it was really dumb of them to vote him off. there is no way he would win, so they might as well have dragged him along.

great speech by the way. very leet

Prime said...

yea no doubt, coach was the only reason to watch this season....typs of a gay dude tho siding with the two girls

pex said...

can you peeps get real jobs where you dont have all this time to comment on blogs

Prime said...

dont be jealous cause nate produced a well-discussed blog

term said...

Prime said...
