Will MIB be Next?

I watched episode three. It still has my attention, but honestly, it is feeling a little "season three" for me - it seems to meander more than I would like. The fight scenes are already getting old. I imagine my expectations, as a LOSTie, are higher than the average viewer. I really admire the flawed nature of the characters and the acting has been strong. The casting is excellent, though seeing Jacob Jeremy as a bad guy was shocking. Admittedly, the most difficult part was NOT being able to discuss it with my husband, as my kids are only part way through season five of LOST! Thoughts?

The Evolution of Revolution

Episode two mirrored the first pretty closely. A little trekking, a little mystery, a lot of combat, a hint of terror. Juliet Rachel IS still alive. What do you think?

REVOLUTION: Yah or nah?

NBC aired the pilot of JJ Abrams' latest foray, Revolution. There were some definite shout outs to LOST lovers, not the least of which was the lovely Elizabeth Mitchell. There was also a hatch-like computer, an airplane graveyard (was anyone else looking for an Oceanic or Ajira logo?), smoke-monster sounds when the lights first went out, and the area inside The Grand looked very similar to the area beneath the Temple (complete with a fire pit and columns).

Casting is great and the story is definitely interesting so far (though admittedly, I would have liked to see more of the trek to Chicago). My personal thought is that Juliet Rachel isn't really dead. It seemed like Elizabeth Mitchell was made to look younger, which would not have been necessary if they were only using her in flashback. What do YOU think?

LOST Lore Lives On - for a future generation

The 2011's Top Baby Names list was revealed and the strength of LOST on its fans has not been... well, lost.

Among the top 100 girls' names (some of which are long time hold outs, but some are new)
Charlotte (#1)

Among the top 100 boys' names (only one of which really stands out)

Among the top 25 gender neutral names

special < wave hello > to Tarzan, whom I have missed!

Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, two of the head writers for LOST, have created a new show for ABC, called "Once Upon a Time" which premiered this week. I enjoyed it, though am not completely sold. I am certainly willing to invest hours into a drama with such a pedigree behind it. (Of course, I said the same thing about a comedy with "Mr. Sunshine" -- come on! Allison Janney! Matthew Perry! Look where that got me - with a half dozen hours of my life that I won't get back. LOL)

Here is a bit of background, if you are interested. http://tvmusingsandthoughts.wordpress.com/2011/10/23/edward-kitsis-and-adam-horowitz-preview-once-upon-a-time/

What I particularly enjoyed, were the nods to LOST fans, including black smoke, a close up of an eye, apartment 108 and the clock being stuck on 8:15. Did you see others? What did I miss?

RIP part two

A year ago today, we mourned the loss of the best show ever on television.

Wednesday, May 4, 2011


One year ago today, we were mourning the loss of Sun and Jin in the epic underwater death. Breathe in. Breathe out.

I miss LOST.

Oddly enough, I am not ready to go back. Maybe this summer. I plan to watch from the beginning with my kids who are old enough now to appreciate it.

I miss LOST so much.

Spain anyone?

Oh wow. Anyone up for a trip to a very special bar in Barcelona?

Some updates on our LOSTies new adventures. I read in Entertainment Weekly that the project "Odd Jobs" with O'Quinn might not be because Emerson has been cast in another JJA show. Hmmm.

Moving the Island Again

I realized tonight that it is wonderfully ironic that Jorge Garcia's next full time gig is on a show called Alcatraz. I think that our little island will remain, and maybe with JJ's new show, we'll have more to talk about - only instead of Hawaii (or actually an unnamed remote island only accessible through a snow globe bubble on exactly the right coordinates), it will be Alcatraz Island in San Francisco!
