Oh 'Lost'. How you have a way of making me happy and sad all at the same time. The reunion of Rose and Bernard and Jin and Sun was very sweet but of course had to come alongside ANOTHER body for the grave. I am enjoying the backstories very much and the deeper we get into the seasons the more it seems like landing on the island was a more of a blessing than a curse for these characters. This is especially true with Kate.
I enjoyed watching Hurley giving away the food from the bunker. It helped seal those parts of his life that were ripped open when he won the lottery in the first place. Maybe the curse of the numbers is finally lifted.
Why didn't the smoke monster take Mr. Ekko with him? Is it because he is on a path of redemption and the island rewards the effort it takes a man to change his ways. He is my new favorite character. This means I will lose him right? I hate this show as much as I love it.
Can't Charlie find some forgiveness? Claire is such a bitch.
I will admit that all the stuff with Hurley's mental institution stay and the fact that everything going on is just in his own head is a mind trip especially when we see that Libby was in the institute with him. WTF? Nice try writers of lost but I am onto you.
Despite all the crazy moments and bizarre stuff going on this show is really only about these people seeking redemption and getting a second chance. Everyone has something bad that happened to them that WAS NOT THEIR FAULT. They are on the island to realize this before they can 'move on'
I find myself pushing all the loopy stuff out of my head and just focusing on the individual stories. No way they are alive on a 'regular island'. Too many 'deus ex machina' moments - too many coincidences - to many references to god and faith. So all the stuff about evil numbers and 'others' and the Dharma project are all just filler...distractions that mean nothing in the end.
The genius of this show is that at the end we just won't care that not all the questions have been answered. At the end we will be just where we began - with the same questions everyone has about life and why the universe works the way it does only now we won't let the search for answers get in the way of just living and loving those closest to us.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
