I thought Niki figuring out what the TVs were for was stupid, but I thought Locke saying that he felt stupid was pretty damn funny so I didn't mind much.

His line reading there was so odd. Like he didn't want to say those lines. Eh, I'm biased! The whole thing was so Mary Sue! "Ooh, look how clever and useful the new girl is. Not unnecessary at all!"

Um, I don't think Kate's annoying at all... =/ But I would like Niki to be axed by the Monster. (Paolo can go some other gruesome way that involves stakes and lots of shirtless action.)
halfdutch

Hee, then Niki is by default more annoying than she is! ;)

And they can't expect us to warm to these new characters. I wonder what they're smoking in that writers' room.

Uh.. I had to leave a bunch of them blank because the answers were all biased in completely the other direction from where I'm coming from. I hope it's okay that I still wanted to vote in your poll.

I've been saying don't trust Juliet, whether she likes Jack or not, she's still an OTHER and Sawyer so had her number too..she could turn into a cold killer in a heart beat..for the epi..I would have said that Foxy taking his shirt off was the best moment, but alas, Mr. Fox is shy and DIDN'T SHOW SKIN, but it's okay, I was still in a daze from those pull-ups.

Am I wrong but didn't Locke FIND the other hatch with Eko and then act like he didn't know there were other hatches??? Because really, now that's been bothering me.

Almost as much as apparently Paolo and Nikki are explorers with the losties too..that plus, yes, we are supposed to hate them..we get it writers, we do..but the thing about a great character is..writing them so we hate them, but giving them enough layers that we actually CARE about them, for now, they just get on my nerves.
halfdutch
Nov. 2nd, 2006 05:06 pm (UTC)
He did take his shirt off! We didn't get a great view of it, but he did!

We don't have the patience anymore to see "layers" revealed in new characters. Please tell me why we should invest anything in these people. They're only going to be bumped off anyway, right? Or, at least we can hope.

Bah.
Paolo is such a dick that...he's not even hot anymore.
SO TRUE.
Bah...just...meh. I'm so disappointed, I've stopped refering to him as "Carl from Love, actually" in my head and just call him Paolo instead. This way I can pretend he's a different person or actor and at least my good memories will stay intact.

Maybe I should call this season of Lost by another name, too.


*bawls*

Bah.

Best moment of this ep: Eko refusing to confess

Hands down, no doubt.

Stupidest moment was Nikki's "OMG I'M LIEK SMART KAY" with the TVs, but Locke's replying line made me laugh. But then, I have no soul.

I don't think Terry sold that line because I have to believe he's also thinking, "WTF?" about the new characters.

I thought the stupidest moment of the ep was Locke asking gravely injured, feverish, hallucinating Eko if he was "okay". Mr. Z & I both burst out laughing at that. Dumbest line ever!

Although all your other stupid moments were also stupid. I don't understand why they can't find some writers who can write. You'd think they'd be able to.
halfdutch
Nov. 2nd, 2006 09:21 pm (UTC)
Hee, you're right. I forgot about that.

*sighs*

Oh, such clunky writing. The whole "Hey, new characters, come tag along!" thing was particularly lame. The hike to test the transceiver it was not.

All of the stupid moments were SO stupid, how can I pick just one? And how sad is it that there are so many stupid moments to choose from.

Pull-ups - I think I may have passed out :)

I have to admit I didn't even know anyone was going to die this ep so that just goes to prove how good I've been about the spoilers I guess. I'm struggling to reconcile the Eko we first saw at the start of S2, who was on with a vow of silence over the killing of the Others, with the Eko at the end of this ep... although much kudos for refusing to ask for forgiveness :) I guess in a way I feel cheated that I didn't know more about him on the Island - especially with the button pushing obsession - but I guess with that taken away from him there wasn't much left for the character to do other than put Locke's nose out of joint so better now than when we've fallen out of love with another character.

Ahhh, I only knew from the promos they showed on ABC during the week.

I liked Eko but I never really connected with his backstories. And I don't buy his sudden conversion to button pusher. That just seemed like the writers needed him to be doing that right then, so he did.

Is it sad that we'd rather see someone leave the show than stay and be forced to suffer through the bad writing and being sidelined? *sighs*

Only Niki can figure out what the extra TVs are for

New characters-GO AWAY!!!Take Damon with you.

Yes, they can start a spinoff, set on the second island and we can all not watch!

Meet Kate and Sawyer 2.0

Actually to me they're more like Boone and Shannon redux. Not as pretty and even more annoying and three times as useless. If they were going to force Boone and Shannon redux on me I'd almost have rather have kept Boone and Shannon, minus the creepy pseudo incest.

It would have been so much simpler if they'd just kept the original Boone and Shannon!

I've actually been pretty pleased with most of the episodes so far this season but for some reason last night's episode just seemed sort of unfinished to me - like the real script got thrown out before they shot the episode and they were just winging it.
but I have to appeciate any episode with shirtless pull-up Jack. *drools*
halfdutch
Nov. 3rd, 2006 06:04 am (UTC)
Now, if we could only have gotten Jack doing pull-ups while shirtless!

And as much as I liked Eko, his eps just never grabbed me, including the one last night. Which definitely had its issues. *nods*

For the question about Niki; you forgot the option "NO ONE is more annoying than Kate!"
halfdutch
Nov. 3rd, 2006 06:06 am (UTC)
My LJ, my rules! ;)

And it's funny, but Kate is way down on my flist of Lost characters who annoy me. There are so many who come first. Not to say she never does just ... guess I'm able to overlook the tagalongitis and stuff.
