Things I Love Thursday : LOST

I just finished watching the premier episode of LOST.  I’m more confused now than I ever was before.  And that’s saying a lot.  Part of me wants to give up and stop trying to actually understand what’s going on.  But I can’t help myself.

So now we’re traveling around in time.  As if I wasn’t confused enough with trying to figure out if we’re in the past, present, or future. 

It was nice to see that the actress that plays Ana Lucia got out of jail long enough to film a brief re-appearance!  I enjoyed seeing her – she’s an interesting character.  My husband is still rooting for a Mr. Eko return. 

So who is the gray-haired lady?  Apparently she’s pretty important because even Ben seems subject to her. 

This episode seemed more violent than usual.  People falling on knives, being burned alive, lots of shooting, falling off balconies….tonight might have set an episode record for the “number of violent deaths in a variety of manners.”  Obviously they’re trying to compete with CSI.

Poor Hurley.  He’s always trying to do the right thing, and it always comes back to bite him.  Hurley had the funniest line to Sayid when he said, “Maybe if you eat more comfort food, you wouldn’t need to go around shooting people.”  Gotta love Hurley.

And, I love Hurley’s parents.  When his mom said, “I don’t understand you, but I believe you…” I actually teared up.

What is up with Sun?  Is she going to the dark side?  I feel that perhaps she is trying to manipulate Kate to pay her back for letting Jin die.  Could Sun have hired the lawyers?  Hmmmm…..

Why is Desmond special?  Why is Charlotte having nose bleeds?  Didn’t someone else have a nose bleed?  I can’t remember…

Oh, and who was the lady in the butcher shop?  And why does Locke’s body need so much protecting?  If they get him back to the island will he come back to life (since he can spontaneously heal on the island)?

Sorry this is such a disjointed post.  LOST does that to me.  I can already tell that I’m going to stay up thinking about LOST instead of sleeping tonight.  Why am I so obsessed with something that does that to me?

Everybody loves this show but I have never seen it. Apparently, I am missing out.

Andrea McMann said...

I haven't seen it either. I don't get to watch much, except for cartoons! ;)

Brooke said...


don't the nose bleeds mean you've done too much time travel and its time to kick it?

i don't think this is Red's first trip around in regards to time travel.

and i was hoping that we'd see boone again near the beechcraft! :)

Read my LOST musings (they address a couple of questions you asked here although certainly not all) at

I agree with your view of Hurley. He is the most real and loveable character on the show.

The husband and I have watched this show since its inception, and that's saying a lot- we don't follow many shows.

I was confused, too. My mind got so tired I fell asleep while watching. Well, maybe that's because the premier was 2 HOURS LONG!

Mimi said...

I had the same thoughts of Hurley on this episode! He is actually my favorite character--and the nicest. No wonder, he has a sweet, loving, understanding Mom!

I did not get into Lost. Hubby is though. I am eagerly awaitng the return of Burn Notice on USA

I hear you on the disjointed Lost post! There's just so much to take in! And I kinda agree about Sun---she is just driven with revenge...but it seems like there's something else we don't know. (Big surprise!)

Sarah said...

Hurley is my favorite too!

I love LOST too! I posted on my blog about my love of LOST on Wednesday. I haven't been able to see the season premier yet. *pout* I had unexpected things come up and I couldn't tune in, but I'm going to watch it tonight! *crossing fingers* I didn't read all of your post, so I wouldn't see spoilers...but I'll come back when I've seen it to compare notes with you! :)
