I'd say good because overall it was a good episode objectively apart from the Alex mess (which was waaay shocking/cruel and I don't think necessary). Sayid is of course the most badass of everyone and I hope he gets out of Ben's hands because he doesn't kill Penny. I also said Desmond will save her because I'd love to see it but more realistically she'll probably save herself. I'd say the best of Sawyer was all of it and tie between I never and poker. And Jack, of course Kate poisoned him! She already did it ;)

Ha, now I wish we'd see all those problems wrapped up in the next ep! And then they can address the four-toed statue and the bird that said Hurley's name.

I caved and read the reviews of this one, but I was spoiled for the Big Horrible Thing. (Thank heaven.) I'd love to watch the Sayid flash-forward, and Sawyer being badass, but I can't watch the episode. I just can't.

As for the misogyny... I am not a feminist (pro-equality, pro-women's human and civil rights, etc., but NOT a feminist). I think 99% of the bitching that goes on about misogyny in popular culture is just that - whining and calling something misogyny when someone means "I disliked it." BUT. Even I can't ignore the misogyny on "Lost" anymore. ALL the women do is get shot in order to further the men's plotlines, with a token "Mah BAY-bee!" thrown in as if to attract female viewers or something. Kate is the token they throw in as if to prove otherwise - but my God, what can you do with Kate BUT despise her?

I won't reiterate my own posts here, but anyway... Fuck canon. The inmates are running the asylum now as far as I'm concerned.

Hi hon. I'm so, so bummed that they keep killing off all the interesting female characters. :-( And that the only ones who live do so because they need to take care of babies. Sun used to be so kickass. And so did Kate. I'm pinning my hopes on Juliet now because really, who's left? :-/

I was really loving this season up until this point. I'm glad you're still sticking around fandom, though!

Hahaha, Jack's pregnant! It all makes sense now. (My weirdo theory was that he had absorbed Ben's spinal tumor somehow, like the island doesn't heal people it just transfers their illnesses.)

Sawyer, man of many games -- you're not kidding! I hadn't realized how many there were.

I love your polls.

Oh, thanks, hee! Glad you liked this one. I had to find some humor in it somewhere!

And I think I forgot that Sawyer also played checkers with Locke - when he asked him to go easy on Kate, IIRC.

I feel like under the rating question, there should have been a fifth option that said "WTF??"

I find your icon extra funny now that we know how much Ben loves to cook! Aww, we have to find the humor where we can. And yeah, wtf indeed!

I had to check two for the last one, since I think I'm somewhere in the middle - still watching for now but not feeling particularly sure that'll continue, still active in the fandom, but ditto. I guess I'm just disillusioned with all of it.

Yeah, I should have included a "totally up in the air" option. *hugs*

In retrospect, not the best idea for a combo post, heh!

Glad you had a lovely time. :)

There should be an option "Lovin' the show, apprehensive about fandom".

Like, when did the show become about the epic battle between Ben and Caleb Nichol Charles Widmore?

And how was it so good the first half of the season and so shitty last night? Or the night before, or whatever.

And how many more chicks have to fucking die?

And I'm sorry to badmouth the show in your journal, I haven't read other peoples reactions so I don't know if you loved it or hated it. Just. Grrr. They best make up for it next week!

(also, I always called that game Risk, weird)

Hi! How goes it?

Fairly recently. I mean, of course there will be deviations from the initial plan, but my God, can't these people bring a single goddamn subplot or idea or storyline to fruition? What happened to the crash survivors? What happened to the island?

And how was it so good the first half of the season and so shitty last night? Or the night before
I think it's S3 in reverse.

And how many more chicks have to fucking die?
Every single female other than Kate will die. Every. Single. One.

And I'm sorry to badmouth the show in your journal, I haven't read other peoples reactions so I don't know if you loved it or hated it. Just. Grrr. They best make up for it next week!
They can't. (Insert long string of expletives here.)

Um. Anyway. Venting. Sorry. Kittens.

You know, I would have been happy if this show had only focused on the crash survivors and not the hundreds of other people who just happen to be on the island. Of course, I loved Danielle and Desmond and I'm not minding some of the freighties. It's just, yeah... way to lose focus, guys. I've said it before and I'll say it again: ADD! It sucks extra hard because when this show is good, it's spectacular.

And no problem, vent away, hon.

ITA. And on a semi-related note... I've got a plot bunny for a crack!fic that I think owes something to... well, I don't remember the title, but it's the one where everyone falls in love with Sawyer. May I give the bunny some lettuce and let it hop, with credit to you?
halfdutch
Apr. 27th, 2008 07:56 pm (UTC)
Hee, of course, go for it! And the fic was called "Who Loves You, Baby?" Wow, that's an old one, LOL! Ahh, we could all use some good crack!fic. :)

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. :-/ That is not what I signed onto Lost for at all. And yeah, I was really loving this season so far! The badassery of Desmond and Sayid was sooo good I almost didn't mind that we got little to no Sawyer. (And how sad is it that my J/S mojo is so much on hiatus that when Sawyer announced he was going back to the beach, it wasn't until MUCH later that I realized we might finally get another J/S scene!)

And oops, is that Risk? I never played it myself! Well, if there's a board game that was popular in the '70s, or, like, ever, you know The Others have it! I'm waiting for them to whip out the Connect Four or Battleship!

I tried to email you last night but it bounced back. I'll try again!
