Lost : S5E1-S5E2 : The Oceanic Six : Will All 6 Make It Back To The Island?

I’ve been thinking about the Season 5 premier of Lost. That’s why I haven’t written anything yet. I wasn’t disappointed. We have time travel, danger, unanswered questions, tensions… all that. The two big themes of the season premier are: What happened to the Island and everybody on it? and How will the Oceanic Six get…

Lost : Where Did the Island Go?

Short answer: No where. It’s still there. In the Season 4 finale, Ben Linus is explaining time travel [specifically “time travelling bunnies” – ha!] to John Locke in the Orchid station. Somewhere in the midst of that converstaion, he notes that if an object goes forward in time it vanishes in the present. It disappears. When…

Slaying the Kronosyphon

Kronosyphon is just a fancier way of saying “time suck.” Time sucks are things that, well, suck away your time and leave you with pretty much nothing to show for it.

Lost : The Oceanic Six & Who’s in the Coffin

I just don’t have a more reasonable [read: pseudoscientific] explanation for the presenceof ghosts on this show. Guess I’ll have to work…

Implications of the Rabbit 15

I found this synopsis on wikipedia: “A video aired at the 2007 San Diego Comic-Con shows footage of an orientation video for Station 6 (“The Orchid”), in which “Edgar Halowax” explains that, contrary to Dharma’s statements that the station…

Kyle XY – Why I’m hooked

My wife has got me hooked on another show this summer while we await the return of Lost. Who would’ve thought that a show about a guy with no belly button would be this good?  To prepare for the 2nd Season of Kyle, my wife had me cramming the 1st Season on DVD. So far,…

Lost: Season 3 Finale: Through the Looking Glass

I’ve been thinking about the Season 3 finale of Lost. Wow! Yes, I’m a hardcore Lostie. I’ve been hooked since the first show. The only reason I ever got cable was because I’d moved to an area that didn’t have clear enough reception to pick up ABC but I didn’t want to miss an episode…
