Baseball Toaster was unplugged on February 4, 2009.
Don't know if anyone will see this ... anyway, you may talk about tonight's episode - I won't read comments until I've seen it. However, please do not talk about teasers for future episodes.
I haven't watched the debuts of Veronica Mars or The Nine yet, either, so hold your thoughts on those.
Check the sites for the daily papers if you're curious. No spoilers were put into the event stories.
Hmm...John Locke, Edmund Burke. I wonder what they're getting at with these political theorists. I eagerly await the arrival of the new "Other"...Baron de Montesquieu.
I abide by the edicts of the Philosopher King.
I've watched both seasons, and I'm reacing the point where I want to watch, but I resent having to block out my time to do so. I wish I knew what that meant.
I agree. That was the weakest part of the episode, and totally unneccessary. Also, it would have played out better if Dr. Legaspie (sorry, I can't remember the character's name, and that was what she was called on "ER") had been noncommittal. For once, I would have appreciated a little more ambiguity on "Lost". One of the problems with the scene is that it reduced the isolation of the Lostaways -- somebody on the island seems to have contact with the outside world. Somehow, even if that somebody is the bad guy, it makes the scenario a little less scary.
While watching this episode, it occurred to me for the first time -- isn't it possible that some of the characters in the flashbacks may be people who managed to escape the island? When they revealed that somebody, somewhere has contact with the outside world, it really made me think that was a strong possibility.
But Henry is now Ben. Is Ben in charge of Juliet?
The answer, of course, is "very."
To me, the answer is, "kinda". But I'm not much for blondes.
Anyway, Wikipedia has an entry about it:
Sorry, I couldn't resist.
I truly believe that Desmond (Henry Ian Cusick) will become the most important character on the show. Of course, he's also my favorite, so there you go.
1) On a very basic level, I found Mr Eko more interesting. Mr Eko is at least one or two novels deep, if you know that I mean.
2) Cusick is a fine actor, but I found Triple A's work consistently astounding: He reached depths with a character who could very easily have ended up uncomplicated, despite his fascinating past.
3) A lot of the stuff around Desmond was mishandled, in my opinion, which gave his episodes a willy-nilly kind of feeling that I didn't like. Mr Eko's flashbacks were the strongest of season 2 (as far as I was concerned).
The enemy of Desmond, his girlfriend's father, Mr. Widmore, is now on "Ugly Betty".
How does one link to an earlier post?
take 25, put  around it, and you end up with 25
Or are you just teasing me?
Just having a little fun. :)
Here Be Monsters!
Some nice pix of familiar cast members (Evangeline Lilly and Yun jin Kim both look gorgeous), and brief (really brief) snippets of conversations with some of them.
I sure hope the Honolulu Zoo was well compensated for the use of its premises.
The Nine Sucked.
END OF SPOILERS.
I mean, they haven't explained anything about why they have caputred them, why they are holding them, anything. Why not suspect everything? Well, Sawyer isn't the sharpest knife, but why doesn't he assume that "Karl" in the cage across the way is not deliberately there to mess with Sawyer's mind? Karl's "prison break", subsequent "beating" and "apology" is all carefully crafted stage play for Sawyer's benefit just so Karl can later gain Sawyer's trust and exploit him.
That's just one example. The manipulation of Jack is another. Don't talk to Juliet... duh.
(Note how they want to know where the plane came from...)
Washington, D.C.: I was a TiVo lover Nielsen house for a week. The power was stressful, but heady. Anyway, I didn't have a box, but they gave me a paper chart. The directions said write down what I watch even if it was TiVo'd. Then I mailed it back. Does that not count? Was I lied to?
Lisa de Moraes: And did they have the Pony Express stop by your place to pick up the paper work? Honestly, Nielsen slays me...no, you were not lied to. That's how they operate...
