Lost - Further Instructions



Is Charlie a robot? Because his reaction to Locke's disappearance/reappearance makes no sense, even given that he hates Locke. I guess he was happy or at least indifferent that Locke, Eko, and Desmond were presumably dead? ETA: Or, just brainwashed along with everyone else?

Also, they've finally found a use for Claire: She will stand around and ask all the questions no one else is asking. *hands Claire a list*

Oh great, we don't get shirtless Jack, but we get shirtless Locke. Foxy, WHY?

Wow, I almost didn't recognize Ian with long hair. DAMN, he looks good. (Am I the only one who thinks he looks a little like Christian Kane?) Can we get a Shannon visitation next?

And damn, Charlie, Claire and baby will be fine? *pouts* This is like a future fic, Sawyer and Kate traveling together. (Also, is that metal detector detecting the gay in Jack? ;D)

Wait ... Locke's going to save Eko's life? O_o He wasn't even in the airport vision. Process of elimination? (Also, hatch implodes and they're all fine? Ohhh-kay.)

That conversation with Hurley and Locke was so ... flat. You'd think information such as Jack, Kate and Sawyer being held captive would be conveyed with a little more sense of drama or urgency or shock. You'd think Hurley might be a little more freaked out. I'm happy in the knowledge that Naked!Desmond will be running into people who are hotter and much more excited about seeing a hot, naked man in fanfic. But no one else's shirt would cover Des enough for the censors. ;)

Mike the Pot Farmer looks real familiar. Little help? OK, that WAS Zeke. Hmm. That explains the beard and that whole charade -- and not much else! ETA 2: Okay, so they just look a lot alike. And I have seen that actor before. So ... eh.

Hmm. It really was a polar bear. I mean, I wasn't expecting a Wendigo exactly but still ...

I guess it would be too much for there to be a Locke rescue mission for the captives. Was that what everyone else was expecting? But it's going to be another vision quest for Locke? Next week? Or the week after?

So Locke's not a killer? Ahh, you can't join the Lost Murderers' Club!

Hey, no way Rodrigo Santoro and the other chick were there the whole time. They must all have been brainwashed into thinking they were there. Shades of Dawn. That's the complicated way to introduce new characters. Hell, with that method there's no end to the amount of new people they can bring in. It's the writers' "get out of jail free" card.

Next week: No more Sawyer!Torture 101, onto the master class. :-/ *hands booze to alliecat8. Yay for a Sawyer episode but ... is that all he's good for? Torturing? Beating up? Shooting? I don't know. I mean, I love action. I was hoping The Others would finally take their gloves off because they've been pretty damn dull so far. Lord knows I never complain about everything Jack Bauer goes through. But still ... I am anxious and not in an the excited way I was when it was "just" tying Sawyer to a tree.

And it looks like my sneaking suspicion is correct: they will be making Kate choose between Jack and Sawyer! That is straight out of bad fanfic. Why would they care who Kate loves or doesn't? If it's part of some overall psychological experiment, maybe. But if it's just "who will Kate choose?" that is LAME.

But are they at least all together or was that clever editing? *frets*



ETA:
Psychic!Desmond. Okay, now that's cool. Me like. Also, I just like it when Desmond is onsceen. I even sit up and pay attention!

I thought that I heard Evi and Matt's voices come out of the new people (whatever their names are). Is that just me? Because if Desmond is hearing stuff wrong (or early) and Hurley is hearing stuff wrong and Charlie is acting strangely, that just might fit right in. I mean, the rest of the castaways don't think the new kids ARE Jack and Kate ... (although that would be kind of interesting! Bunny!) Still, something is very off.

Mike the Pot Farmer = Zeke the Other.

I love your theory to explain where the new characters appeared from out of nowhere, that they're like Dawn. Cooked up by the hatch to contain all that electromagnetism, no doubt.

And yeah. Why would the Others give a crap who Kate chooses? It must be a psychological experiment, but it's still lamer than lame.

See, I thought that, and then I thought I must be wrong.

So now it's Zeke the Gay Pot Farmer? Aka Mike. Aka Tom. And that's why he wore a beard when facing down Locke before. Hmm.

And now I guess that's the Other who has a pre-island connection. Unless they all do. Which, at this point, wouldn't surprise me. Still lame, especially since we won't get the explanation, at this rate, until next year or so.

mike and zeke, so not the same I guess, and we're still explanationless. But all this identical casting can't be an accident, can it?

And seriously, what has Ian been doing, because damn it's working!!

And lastly, Charlie, hair, thoughts? ;)

Aha! Ok, good, you've caught me just as I was drafting a poll question about it! THANK YOU!

Hee, you knew I totally had opinions on the hair! What is it with TV boys and little flippy hair wings? GAH. *gets out the scissors, runs after Dom and Jared*

I agree. I don't understand why Ben and his lot care so damn much about Kate's love life. What does it matter to them if she loves Sawyer or if she loves Jack. I don't get it. :/ And it does sound like bad fan fic. What could their motivation possibly be?

Yay for a Sawyer episode but ... is that all he's good for? Torturing? Beating up? Shooting? I don't know. I mean, I love action.

I'm not excited at all. Really, really not excited. This sort of thing is something that I can take in fan fic, at least the concept of the others being this sadistic, but seeing it and reading it are different things. Next week's episode is going to be brutal on me.

I'm surprised they're going this route ... I mean, I've read and written really dark fic and Confidence Man is far and away my favorite Lost ep.

But to see this play out does bother me, even though I've been bored by the captivity so far. Part of me is like, 'Aha, finally something is happening,' but the other part is just very anxious about Sawyer. It feels a little cynically gratuitous, exploiting the fans' sympathy for Sawyer. Not that fanfic isn't gratuitous, heh, but just oh -- I'm kind of in a tizzy. I don't know if I can be coherent!

And yes, please don't go the bad fanfic route people. Please!

Freakin' LJ, no wait, this server I have keeps crashing..I left a great comment on elise's lj and it's gone..but it works here too..

Let's see, beating, tasering, caging, forced manual labor, and now strapped to a table and tortured, is Benry into S&M, does he switch off and let someone else dominate.

Or is it just revenge because Zeke has a crush on him?

I swear, between last week's CSI and next week's Lost, I'd say any character I like had better be careful..they are getting beat to a pulp lately.

OMG, detecting the gay in Jack..Benry has GAYDAR!!! *smile* see above comment, see, it all fits. *smile*

And please, tell me right now if that was someone you cared about in that cage you wouldn't play the tuba, while making pancakes and high kicking if they said it would stop the beating?, I mean, does that question even hold any weight.

But Foxy in that dress shirt looked hot.

Claire is around to ask those questions, I have one, WHERE IN THE HELL DID PAOLO COME FROM? *smile*

And yep, I'm still awake..*sigh*

Man, poor Sawyer. It's being taken to an extreme.

I cannot believe that a hottie like Paolo has been there the whole time. No freakin' way. That's making the Tailies storyline seem inspired.

The gaydar thing was an Office reference, LOL. Genius episode!

Eko wasn't in Locke's airport hallucination because he needed saving, I guess. Just his Jesus stick and the puddle of blood were good enough for Locke to make the connection.

Hm, I'll have to rewatch the end scene with the new kids, because I didn't hear Jack and Kate's voices, although I was kind of like "Wait, isn't he the Brazilian guy? No accent? WTF?"

OMG BRAINTWINS.

I didn't say anything about the promo for next week because...yeah. That's just STRAIGHT out of bad fanfic. :(

Also, I didn't even put together that Zeke was Mike The Pot Farmer.

Zeke and Mike are actually two different actors (see cmonkatiekatie's comment, above, they just look quite a bit alike! So I think they were trying to cause confusion there. I keep waiting for the rumored Other pre-island connection, but I guess that wasn't it.

It's not even November next week (hence not a sweeps stunt). I'm just antsy about that ep. The present-day stuff aside, I'm always worried they're going to give us a bad Sawyer episode. But we know they have such high standards, heh. ;)

I wanted to tell you that I was thinking about you while I was watching America's Next Top Model last night. I'll tell you more tonight on AIM...let's just say their challenge task was something you'd relate to, LOL. ;)

thanks to cmonkatiekatie for the proof that Tom/Mike is not the same guy, I was sure of that. but they really cast look-alike to they? *roll eyes*

Desmond is great. I think he's the only thing everyone agrees upon ♥

Oct. 19th, 2006 04:05 pm (UTC)
I didn't think it was him, but then other people were saying it was - nice to have the proof.

Desmond rocks. He's the one new character I've really liked.

Thanks for the booze, and please keep it coming. :/

I can't even discuss the ep because I'm basically paralyzed with anxiety. Not looking forward to next week at ALL.

I need to go rewatch the part with the new people to hear what you mean about their voices. And then, please god, give me the strength to turn the tv OFF before I have to face that horror of a promo again.

I swear I heard Evi and Matt's voice. It really threw me. There was something really off about that whole scene. And Charlie's been acting so weird and Hurley didn't seem that freaked out about the kidnapping (all summer I was imagining how he'd break the news -- and who to -- and that was completely anticlimactic) so ... bad writing and acting or are they leading up to something?

And eee! *clings to Sawyer*

As far as next week goes, I'm sitting over here with my fingers in my ears going "LA LA LA".

At the very least, couldn't they pick someone else to torture for a change? Yeesh.

I was actually positive that Mike the pot farmer was being played by the same guy who played Daniel Holz on Angel. Um, I was really really wrong.

Great,I'm not the only one who thinks so:-/ And I didn't even read your review before I wrote mine.
*sighs*

So Locke's not a killer?Ahh,you can't join the Lost Murderers' Club!
Locke makes me happy:)
So,Zeke and Mike are not the same person?Really?

I feel bad for Josh. :-/ He's such a good actor and they've kind of reduced him to just nicknaming everyone, taking off his shirt and getting beaten up. :-(


Nope, those are two different actors!

I *still haven't watched the whole episode yet! *sigh* But would I be amiss in wanting to trade all the new people to get Boone back?

That promo? The more I watch it the more pissed off I get. It's soooo over the top! I learned one thing though. I think I have a repressed torture fetish. That one screencap of Sawyer? Holy shit! And at the same time it pisses me off too for the same reason you mentioned. Josh is just a body to them to get ratings. Will we ever see him get a chance to do some dramatic acting again? Last time was S1 Outlaws. *big sigh*
