So, so happy that "Lost" is back on the air...even if only for 8 episodes or so.
I've run the gamut of emotions and opinions about the show since it first started. I loved it at first...the interesting characters, the locale, the Sci-Fi plot. Then it started to wear on me. It started to bore me to tears when they wouldn't give us any answers, just more questions. I wanted just a little some-some, anything to get me back to loving the show.
Chris Rock had a great bit on Stevie Wonder that summed up perfectly how I felt about "Lost" at this point. He said that with all the technological advances that mankind has made (space travel, genetic engineering, etc..) why hasn't anyone figured out a way for Stevie Wonder to get a peek. Not his full eyesight back, just a fucking peek. Why can't we get Stevie a mother-fucking peek?
That's all I wanted. A mother-fucking peek!
I didn't want the whole thing explained to me. I didn't want all the answers. But I felt I was owed at least a peek. Me and Stevie.
Then they started giving us a few answers. A couple of peeks into the mystery of the island. I was hooked again. Then last season's finale came and rocked my world. Holy crap...what a great episode.
So it was with pins and needles that I sat anticipating last night's episode, and when it finally came and went I felt that it came through with the goods on so many levels. Hurley episodes are always great, and this one didn't disappoint.
So here we go. For the next 7 weeks or so I will be glued to the tube every Thursday night eagerly awaiting the next clue to the puzzle. They've got me again.
By the way, just who do you think the Oceanic 6 are? We know three of them already, but the other three are still unknown to the viewing audience. Roll your mouse over the last three characters to see my guess. Its not based on any spoilers...just my best guess.
The Oceanic 6
Locke - I think he was the one in the coffin, but why that neighborhood?
Sayid - No real reason, but it just feels right.
Claire (plus baby) - Because of Charlie's sacrifice.
What do you think?
PS - Nothing new at MovieGrenade! I'm just saying.
