*a little blue*

RIP, Steve Irwin. Maybe unexpected, but still shocking and sad. I actually met him once and he was just like he was on TV. Loud, enthusiastic, and wearing those shorts, even at night. Very sad.

On a fandom note, I've been thinking more about what we're getting in Lost S3.

At first the promo footage had me excited, even though it indicated that Jack, Kate and Sawyer were all in different locations. And this interview with Josh confirms it. :-( I guess I was OK with them being separated for a bit, but how long is that going to be? Is there any other show that splits up its two male leads like this, so often? We were so spoiled in S1, we didn't even know it. S2, it took EIGHT episodes for them to be reunited. And then they didn't talk for two more episodes. That was ten episodes without a Jack/Sawyer convo! (Yes, we got some nursing, at long last, but still, Sawyer was unconscious!) So can they really keep them apart for six episodes? Or will they get together and escape before that? I can see The Others pitting them against each other in some way but probably they'll be trying to break them down individually. At the very least, TPTB have to give us a Sawyer episode now, won't they?

Anyway, that makes me melancholy, because Jack and Sawyer interaction is my favorite thing about the show. It's one of the big reasons S2 just wasn't doing it for me, for the most part.

Well, there's still fic to give us the captivity scenarios we want. I just want to get my one or two captivity fics written and then I hope to catch up with all the other fics I missed.

As always, don't want to know any more spoilers than are already mentioned here. Thanks!

I still can't believe that Steve Irwin is dead.... :(

On a much more morbid note: I'm waiting for two more celebrities to die soon....don't they all die in three's? It's very strange....my money's on one of the Golden Girls to buy the farm.

It's hard to believe. He risked death all the time, but still. He was so young and just bursting off the screen. (And a friend I mentioned it to pointed out that when you say, "Did you hear about Steve Irwin?" your mind goes to "Wow, he must be dead." But for a lot of other celebs (Michael Jackson, Mel Gibson), you'd think instead, "Wow, what did he do now?"

And Glenn Ford died. And the guy from Madonna's Vogue video (Willie Ninja, I think), so maybe they're a trio.

So sad about Steve Irwin. And he's got two little children.

About Lost, I would have expected intelligent writers would learn from their mistakes, but I guess they don't consider splitting up the cast a mistake from last season. It was infuriating. Characters didn't talk to each other as it was. *sigh* It just better be a shorter period of time this season.

At the very least, TPTB have to give us a Sawyer episode now, won't they?

Don't count on it. I'm not. >:\

Well, they're not learning from last season in terms of merrily continuing to add new characters so the splitting up thing shouldn't surprise me. I was so excited to see new footage but having them apart isn't going to make me happy. *sighs*

Well, we'll see.

Your concerns are the same as mine. Which is why I was so pissed off when that one spoiler came out. But I have to say, I didn't expect them to be together. I mean, The Others aren't going to put together all the people they kidnapped so they can make a plan to get out. Is it upsetting? Yes. Unexpected? No. *sigh* I just hate being introduced to situations were I have to trust the writers and producers to do it right because they're more then proven that they can't in the past.

You're right. The trust is gone. But sometimes, they still deliver. I just wish they could deliver all the time! *prays their priorities synch up with ours!*

Judging by some of the other stuff the producers are saying (mostly about Kate), I don't think they can be separated for all six. Holding them separately makes the most sense, captivity wise, but holding them together makes for a more dramatic show, doesn't it? I'd love to see them each get interrogated in front of the other two and be forced to talk about their pasts.

Ooh, I hope it's not all six episodes. Thanks for that.

I just hope the eps are good. Please, let them be good! The finale was so great, so I really got my hopes back up!

My hopes are insanely high, and if my predictions for this season turn out to be right, I am going to be through the roof (even though it involves my favorite character and isn't exactly favorable). I just know that once the six new episodes are over, I am going to be going insane with desire to see the last chunk of eps.

Ooh, well, we'll just have to see! I'm kind of thinking that the first six eps will be my fave, since it'll be about JKS and the rest I won't be so interested in. But, who knows?

To be fair, I don't think it would make much sense for the Others to keep the three of them together, just from a realistic standpoint but I've only been mildly spoiled so I'm pretty much in the dark on what will happen while they are in captivity. Who knows what they have planned! I'm hoping they at least have a fantastic reunion or some longing looks in the hallways (To tell you the truth, I'm just excited to have six episodes featuring J/S...and K)!

As for Steve, I was really shocked. We're big on the Animal Planet in my home and when we take my cousin's children, it's all they are allowed to watch. They had an episode on earlier of Steve witnessing the birth of his first child and it really broke my heart. I'm going to have to stay away from AP for a while I think...

I was excited thinking it would be nonstop JKS but ... separate is a whole different deal. It does make more sense from The Others' standpoint but when has realism and practicality been a consideration on Lost? LOL. As I said, S2 just didn't deliver the way S1 did, for me, and splitting up the boys was a big part of that, so I'm hoping that's not a repeat. Lost minus my favorite aspect of the show is no longer my favorite show. :-/

And yes, Steve's death was really shocking. When someone defies death so often, and so cheerfully, it seems like he'll go on doing that for a long, long time. Reading more details about it is just making me horribly sad. I think because he was such a jolly, larger than life guy, it's that much harder to believe.
