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
