Yo! Okay, so LOST: THE FINAL SEASON (did they officially change the name of the show and I missed it?) is underway. We’re 5 hours in. I have a few thoughts.
1) Me like Rose! (And Bernard is fine or whatever.) So I was glad we got some of her this season. Twice! Wa-hoo! Although let’s see her on that island and not just in LA dying of cancer and telling John Lock to man up.
2) I could use some more Miles.
I like Miles. I like him more than most of the rest of them (Hurley, I am talking about you especially.) I hope he gets more to do than say one funny thing and just hang around the temple with no interest in what any of his friends are doing. But but but, shouldn’t he have been shot when they got to the temple in the first place? Why would he have been on the list inside the thing inside the guitar case? He was never touched by Jacob (that we know of) and he wasn’t on the original Oceanic flight. He must factor into something big coming up or else they would have gotten rid of him but it does kind of seem like his character fulfilled his purpose already last season. But I still love ya Miles!
3) Ever notice how sometimes the island is this big sprawling place where people (Rose/Bernard, Rousseau, Claire, etc) can live all alone not bothered by anyone for YEARS and other times it’s like the hallways of a very small high school (“Oh hey Kate! Filling up your water bottle and looking for Claire? Nice seeing you! Me and Jack are off to the Lighthouse. See you after 5th period.”) I know its a TV show (and a MAGICAL PLACE) so I guess that’s ok.
