Well I am emerging from the Christmas season with a spinning
You see my Christmas gift was the third season of Lost on DVD. And as per our family tradition we watched said DVD in marathon mode. Yes . . . 991 minutes, 22 episodes later we moaned knowing we still didn't ave all the answers.
The only thing that rivals my family's smoothie addiction is our dependence on Lost.
Here are my observations of the series:
· Trust is too easily given to the co-inhabitants of the beach (e.g. 5 minutes after being tortured by a character the victim is buddy-buddy with the perp. Or now that you’re done threatening my life let’s go fishing).
· My girls haven’t comprehended the concept that you have to continue watching in order to get resolution. They must have immediate answers by asking dear ol’ dad. And my pat answer, “Keep watching” as I do the I’m-watching-you gesture to the TV.
· Anything found, seen, or talked to must be kept secret from everyone else on the island for no apparent reason.
· The Dharma orientation film scientist looks uncannily like my 8th grade science teacher.
· Most of the “Others” have mastered the creepy eye stare
· Lost is basically a soup of Gilligan’s Island, Days of Our Lives, and The Twilight Zone
· As soon as word gets out that you have the DVD set the in-laws want to borrow it
(Now throw in a new XBOX360 with Call of Duty 4 and you have an idea of why the absence of posts)
