Oh, sure, he'll be a fine kid for a couple years, but the first time he brings up time travel in his 3rd year, you'll wish you gave up on him, but you'll be too compelled and too obligated to make the time you invested in this little shiat count for something.

I'm re-watching the series for the first time since the original airing and I have noticed some things on the re-watch that I really didn't on the first time through.

Kate is less annoying the 2nd time through and,
Jack is a whiny dick.

Are there smoke monsters under the crib?

They think it's cute now, but wait until the child is born and they have to wake up every 108 minutes to stop the crying.

What exactly is freaky about that room? I was expecting "can't sleep, clown will eat me" and got a generic baby room with Dharma Initiative logos everywhere.

meh.

But when he's four, you can tell him he's only got two more years to live, and he will stop flailing about and make the last two count.

You didn't pick that up the first time through?!!

(also, way to strike while the iron is hot with this room. Why don't you all come over and see my baby's fantastic Three's Company inspired room!)

Not fully, I was looking at him as the primary protagonist the first time through and not really objectively as the petulant cause of many of their problems.

Lost is the child that keeps asking you questions and doesn't bother taking in the answer before he's on to the next question.

I started looking for clues to the show's ending and how it tied in together. I know that at the time of the first two seasons, Lindelof had no stinkin' clue where he was going, but I know that they at least tried to make Season 6 tie back into Season 1 and make it all cohesive.

One thing that struck to me was when Sawyer was talking to Christian at the bar in one of the Season One episodes, Sawyer, I believe, proclaimed that he was in hell. Seemed like a dead hint clue right there they may have just all been part of a "passing through" as their bodies had all died in the crash and their souls were now wandering trying to figure out where to go.

The original plan might have been purgatory, but it was guessed by fans so ridiculously quickly, that I don't think that was the plan by the time the first season was half-way through. Regardless of how much the writers actually knew of the endgame, there are still enough foreshadowing bits very early on, that the show still works pretty well when you know the ending.

One off the top of my head comes from the episode with Jin going after Michael for the watch. At one point near the end of the episode, Michael talks about how the watch isn't important because "time doesn't mean anything on this island, anyway".

Also, the show pacing is a hell of a lot better when you can just burn through seasons and don't have to deal with ABC's asinine scheduling of a few new episodes, a bunch of repeats, then a couple more episodes, then a short break before finishing the season.

consider this: Come on ABC, give us a sequel series covering Hurley's time as protector of the island.

A TV movie of this could actually be pretty good. There's certainly potential there. Or they could just try rebooting Fantasy Island (again) with Hurley in the Ricardo Montalban role.

Only if they get Billy Dee Williams for it.

I adore LOST, so not knocking it.

But yeah, they totally got Punk'd by fans and had to figure out a new way to end it.

However, I did like the whole meeting in a Church thing. Echo was trying to build a church, so I always got that that was a tie-back and, had the actor not demanded to get out of his contract and continued through the entire arch of Echo, I suspect that story point/church would have played a lot differently into the overall arch.

I also think Ben kinda screwed with the overall arch: Emerson WAS only supposed to be a three episode dood, and they realized his potential so much they wrote that character in. Probably messed with a whole lotta story archs.

/have gone through 3 complete rewatches - pick up new things every time...and the story flows infinitely better when there aren't weeks/months between eppi's.

I want a sitcom about the home life of the Smoke Monster. Since he left the Island, he got a job working in the exhaust vents at a steel mill in Cleveland. Every night, he comes home and just wants to put up his feet and watch the game, but he has to deal with his offbeat, social-climbing wife and a wisecracking geek who rents out their garage and is constantly building strange contraptions that never work like they're supposed to. Oh, and he has a dog that farts all the time.

I don't think so. They already had plans for the "leader of the Others" and what his role would be. They just merged that with Ben (who was originally just a generic Other like Ethan). I think Eko leaving was the bigger problem. I'm sure his plot role was rolled into other characters, but having him leave as early as he did probably screwed with things more than they would have liked.

I could see doing this for a decent show, but Lost? What's next, a Two And Half Men-themes play room?

Iceberg659: What exactly is freaky about that room? I was expecting "can't sleep, clown will eat me" and got a generic baby room with Dharma Initiative logos everywhere.

That's pretty much what I was thinking.

-----------------------------------------

Never underestimate the imagination of kids. What adults think is scary might actually be fascinating to children. When I was five, I got one of those book/record things of Disney's Haunted Mansion. I wanted to live in a haunted house after that(as long as there weren't any werewolves in it).

So...what did I do when I became an adult and had my own house? This.
 
2012-08-21 01:54:49 PM  
I don't see how that room is supposed to be scary, even for a small child.

And if you're putting your baby into that "crib" and actually leaving it there alone overnight, you're asking for a dented baby head in the morning.

The My Little Pony Killer: where did you get the bat plate?


Some craft store called Jo-Ann's. I typically don't care much for craft stores, but Jo-Ann's, Hobby Lobby and Michael's usually have really cool Halloween decor. Way better than anything you'll find at Wal-Mart or those crappy seasonal Halloween stores that popup in vacant shops.

Target is another place to get higher quality Halloween stuff. 

/yes, I'm obsessed with collecting Halloween decorations

"I also think Ben kinda screwed with the overall arch: Emerson WAS only supposed to be a three episode dood, and they realized his potential so much they wrote that character in. Probably messed with a whole lotta story archs."

Not exactly. I remember reading an interview with one of the producers/writers who said they always had the Ben character planned - it was whether he was also "Henry Gale" that was left in the air until they saw how things played out. After Emerson did such a good job they just melded the two characters. If he'd done poorly Ben would've been a different Other.

But Ben was always set to be an island BAMF.

It's futile at this point to say "But...but...how come they didn't follow this or that plot line?!?!" with LOST, but I'll do it anyway: I really wish they'd made the DeGroots part of the regular cast until The Purge, instead of just seeing them in quick film clips. Gerald DeGroot should have been the guy that Ben pretended to be afraid of > really was afraid of, but I'm not sure about the DeGroot's timeline, whether they were around until The Purge or whether HacksLindelofCuse decided to erase them and put Horace Goodspeed in charge.

My boss asked me the other day if I missed LOST and I said "Seasons 1-4, hell yes, season 5 not so much and season 6 we don't talk about".
