I’ve never really been a TV guy. Sure, there are a select few shows that I’ve followed–The X-Files, Arrested Development, The Office and, most recently, Lost. Still, I try to keep my watching habits moderate. But somehow my obsession with Lost has actually turned me into someone who reads about the show immediately after it airs.
God help me.
Some of my own thoughts on last night’s episode:
- Loved the Back to the Future references. I’ve been invoking the trilogy regularly when trying to explain Lost to confused newcomers.
- I also thought the conversations between Hurley and Miles were fairly illuminating with regard to a subject that a lot of Lost fans have been debating: The rules of the Lost universe’s time travel. Seems to be somewhat fate-centered.
- Can’t stand Kate, or her episodes. The TV Club fawned over her flashbacks, but they just bored me.
- Sawyer and Juliette=best Lost couple yet.
- Jack’s words are starting to take on a Locke-like mysticism. Chilling, in my opinion, since they used to be dubbed as somewhat antithetical characters.
- Locke’s smirk adds so much to his character. Can’t wait to see the confrontation between him and Ben next week.
I was skeptical of this season when it started. It seemed to be subverting any sort of logical rules. But I’m totally digging it now. Just took a little while for me to get acclamated.
It’s probably only a matter of time before I join the fold of TV Club commenters. But for the time being, I’ll keep my thoughts here.
Until next week.

After 10 years, a lawsuit, and the end of the TV series that gave rise to the first movie, the second X-Files movie is about to start filming.
Both David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are on board to play their respective roles as Mulder and Scully.
It’s not that often that one of my favorite shows gets cancelled only to release a film years later, so this is a treat.
Now if only those rumors surrounding the Arrested Development movie would come to fruition.
