Lost: Man From Tallahassee polls.

By the way, I don't think Locke being pushed out a window qualifies as an "accident." Hee.

Oh hee, you're right. It's the same as Jae. But the bus and Boone weren't really accidents either, were they?

My favourite Locke backstory was Orientation...which wasn't an option. Don't worry, I think I'm alone in that anyway. I just picked my second favourite instead, which probably is a better episode really.

And Marc so needs to get his ass on that island! *loves Marc*

Oh, oops! I forgot to doublecheck all the backstories! *blushes* I'm not fond of the two Helen ones myself ... they were so similar!

And yay, you have a Marc icon! :) I always love it when he pops up in a fic.

if someone comes by the box: gimme KEVIN! yes! lol! (not like Kate really needs a new hot guy, but still!)

the most shocking accident for me was Michael, because it was the first time and I so didn't see it coming. Now I am sort of expecting twists, it's not the same.

Aww, shoot. I knew I forgot someone! I was thinking of Kate and hey, Tom is dead and the Marshall dead and I figured no one cares about her mother or her adoptive father. Can't believe I forgot Kevin. Eh, I suck at poll making today!

JJ is known for his random car accidents, I guess. I wasn't really a Felicity watcher but it had one... there was probably one on Alias but I can't recall! There were much more intersting forms of jeopardy on that show!

there was probably one on Alias but I can't recall!
End of S4: My name's not really Michael Vaughn ... CRASH! (there were others, but that was the best one)

Right. I wasn't really watching at that point but I did see that. :) But no car vs. pedestrian that I can recall!

This episode was really good and I'm seriously surprised. I hadn't had time to watch the Claire one so I watched both a couple of hours ago. Two good episodes in a row makes me happy. Now they just need to continue like this :)

I know -- I'm really surprised too! They're on a roll. Sadly, it's too late to win back all those disgruntled viewers, probably.

great poll!

Locke, for not realizing he was being manipulated

i thought he totally realized he was playing into benry's hands, he just was so focused on blowing that sub up that he didn't care if it ultimately benefited him or not.

Well, he was incredibly naïve in the backstory too ... he should have blown the whistle on his dad the first chance he got.

I totally thought the box was a metaphor. I still think so, actually.
halfdutch
Mar. 22nd, 2007 06:28 pm (UTC)
Well, in this case, I took the box to be the room he was holding Cooper in. It could definitely be a bigger metaphor.

The box is nothing more than a box, the real stuff comes from what I've been saying..ALL THE INFO THEY'VE GATHERED ON THEM..hell "the box" could be nothing more than the database or just the internet so they could find this stuff out.

Nothing more nothing less.

I still can not understand how Locke lived throught that, I just can't.

And Locke should know, when someone gets you talking like that, he's looking for an in to totally turn the tables.

There is definitely something funky going on pre-island: Like Desmond running into Jack and then Sarah's miraculous recovery, so Locke surviving an eight-story fall is kind of par for them!

The box could definitely just be a metaphor for the island's mojo but in this case, there was also something to literally be opened with a surprise inside!

Ben has always been able to play Locke, just like his father did. Locke is far too easily manipulated, for all his hunter skills and determination he's really vulnerable. And, still batshit crazy! Ben is the only one who's been able to read him and play him like that (apart from Sawyer during The Long Con.)

See I'm thinking that it was the people that are special and the island sort of brings it out or something..that whole list thing.

Okay, this now way WAY too much like Heroes *smile*

I was so SO hoping it was Boone in there, now that really would have been a kick in the pants.

I think that Ben is just that more crazy than Locke..that's why he can con him.

More shocking Lost accident... I'd have voted for Artz's explosion!
*grins*

Great poll, as ever, and great ep too!

*hopes to write more meaningful comments later*
