Lost: LAX

I HAVE to use the melting-clock mood theme for this, yes?


Mind? Kinda blown.
Tears? Shed.
Heart? Broken.
Fandom love? Restored.

Hell, even Skate love restored! I whooped when Sawyer got into the elevator with Kate! WHO KNEW!
And after that epic Sawyer/Juliet scene. Which, OMG. ;_;

SO HAPPY Sayid lives. SO HAPPY to see Boone & Charlie again.

Locke is interesting again! Dual time periods!

It worked!

First time I have LOATHED a finale and been reeled back in by the premiere. Am I alone? Or just very, very easy?

ETA: I will say, the CGI smoke monster battle was very cheesy. Other than that... pretty damn satisfied & reinvested. The bonsai plants, btw, made me think of Casey from Chuck. Hee. Cuz he would be very amusing if tossed into that situation.

Alt universe Sawyer leaves me feeling like I did about early season 1 Sawyer...he's pretty but kind of...sleazy?

But it's nice having our show back.

Ha, yes he was, incredibly sleazy, LOL! Welcome back, scrupleless (and very easy lay) Sawyer! :) Although he did help Kate and did give advice to Hurley. (If only to possibly get into Kate's pants and into Hurley's wallet.)

Damn, it felt like the old show again, didn't it. I didn't even mind the stuff I swore I didn't care about. Because Locke is so much better as an evil dude. Although it's unnerving to have him order Ben & Richard around!

When Ben got all wimpy on Locke in the statue my mouth dropped open. It was one of the most shocking moments on LOST I've seen. Especially coming from a character like Ben that has been a cold hearted manipulator since the moment he was introduced.

Hi! Yeah, that was a huge role reversal! Same with Richard. I always liked the idea that he was in charge and knew more than anyone.

I haven't seen Lost, so this is a completely useless comment. But I initially misread that first sentence as "melting-cock." Ahem.

Sadly, no melting cocks! Hee!

There was some manly touching and mouth-to-mouth, however. And a reference to one character being in chains. :) The fic writers can do the rest!

Holy crap, I want to lick that avatar. And I am, in fact, picturing Jack and Sawyer's faces on those bodies. Eep.

Mind-blowing, yeah definitely. I'm totally reeled back in.

Yay! Sayid was very hot, even while dead!

WORD ON LOCKE BEING INTERESTING AGAIN!!!

SO HAPPY Sayid lives. SO HAPPY to see Boone & Charlie again.

My thoughts in a nutshell except that I've been stuck on BOOOOONE for an hour and so I'm all giddy now. And no, you're not alone. I mean, I thought the Incident was crap even if I didn't exactly loathe it, but this premiere was awesome in comparison. Now I want to plot like crazy.

Also, CGI in Lost usually suck but this round it sucked even more. And you're totally right on the plants! LOL now if Adam Baldwin was there instead of Korean guy I'd have appreciated a lot more.

I thought Smokey looked okay but what I thought was awful was the dive from the plane to underwater - everything underwater looked like shit.

now if Adam Baldwin was there instead of Korean guy

He's Japanese.

Which irked me because I kept trying to translate him and the only line I got completely right was when he said Sayid was dead.
halfdutch

Agreed, the underwater CGI was very sub (ha!) par!

now if Adam Baldwin was there instead of Korean guy

And oh crap, did I really type that? I totally knew he was Japanese! *smacks forehead* I mean, I recognize Japanese even if I don't understand it. (Thank you, Kurosawa movies.) And, clearly, if he were Korean, Jin would have understood him!

I almost spit out coffee. Thanks for that. LOL.

And oh crap, did I really type that? I totally knew he was Japanese!

No I was commenting on janie_tangerine's comment. ;)

*headdesk* Kudos to me about the Japanese, er. In my defense all the Japanese I know is from comics and/or movies and I haven't read a Japanese comic in five years and the last time I watched a Japanese movie was at least a year ago. Still, oops. Sorry, Other Other.
halfdutch
Feb. 3rd, 2010 04:00 pm (UTC)
Boooooone! Yes! :) Damn, that was enjoyable.

CGI was bad, agreed! And Adam Baldwin totally needs to be on Lost to make his sci-fi show resume complete! LOL.

Well,it was confusing as all hells-but I really did liked the premier!And I cried when Juliet died,but glad that Sawyer got to say goodbye.

Hell, even Skate love restored! I whooped when Sawyer got into the elevator with Kate!
I never been a Skate shipper,but AU sawyer and Kate together do make sense to me and I won't object if they get together:)
halfdutch

Now that they've got us rooting for AU Skate, I hope they won't keep them apart. That would be so like them, yes?

And I was pretty much a sobbing mess over the Juliet scene. Oof, that was rough.
ellel
Feb. 5th, 2010 10:50 pm (UTC)
Oh,yeah-they like messing with their fans,so we'll see how that goes.

It was hard the first time seeing her die,and actually see her die in Sawyers arms?That was heartbreaking.

aww, that you liked it so much makes me so happy! I'm not quite there, but definitely curious about the rest of the season!

Feb. 5th, 2010 06:10 am (UTC)
Awww, yay! Glad we're both still on board. :)

I'm on board and absolutely happy. Desmond appearing on the plane did it for me; self-assured, content and dapper looking Des. And no, I don't think he was reading OMF! The fact that he disappeared when Jack saved Cholly indicates to me that there was a time-bend which occurred when Cholly didn't die ~ maybe!

I do so love the awesomeness that comes from being spoiler-free!
halfdutch
Feb. 5th, 2010 06:10 am (UTC)
Yay! There was Desmond! And he looked damn good! :) I have no idea what kind of conclusion to draw from the fact that we didn't see him get off the plane. I'm just going to wait and see!

Restored, reinvested, satisfied. Yes. Took me by surprise, in the best possible way. :)

Yes, can you believe it? I'm a happy fangirl. Now they better keep us happy! Or, you know, we'll threaten to stop watching. Again. ;)

Fandom love: at full power!

That Sawyer/Juliet scene...terrible--but because it broke my heart all over again, not because it was a bad scene. Though I had trouble understanding what they were saying at first...

And you're not alone! That finale last season...I said then, to my brother on the phone, "When next season starts, this will have been a good finale." But in that moment? Not at all. First five minutes of this? I was going LOST I LOVE YOU YOU ARE MY BFF LET'S HUG AND MAKE UP.

But the mind, she's blown.
halfdutch
Feb. 5th, 2010 06:13 am (UTC)
OMG, that was the most heartbreaking Lost scene ever. I mean, I sobbed buckets over Boone and Charlie but Sawyer wasn't right there having his heart broken with them.

Lost and fandom seem to be on good terms again. Hurrah!

Mind is definitely blown!

I have to say this the first premiere I watched from beginning to end and everything in between in a loooong. Shocking, I know.

So, I'm asking everybody I know their theory on ... what was that hicky on Jack's neck all about? Bueller? Bueller? Lol.
halfdutch
Feb. 6th, 2010 06:10 am (UTC)
I can't believe I liked it either! Who knew?! So glad to hear (it seems) that you liked it also.

Hee, Jack's neck scratch -- phantom injury from the other universe? Shaving accident? Oh wait... vampire! Because we haven't had those yet on Lost. ;) And time's running out! Unless you count Ian Somerhalder's return! (And hey, he was in the vicinity. It was totally him!)

Feb. 7th, 2010 01:05 am (UTC)
LOL! it's not Boone, it's DAMON! that's my theory and I'm sticking to it ;) (that's what happen when you write crossovers like I did, it stays THERE in your mind.)
halfdutch
Feb. 7th, 2010 01:19 am (UTC)
Wait... dammit, you already wrote that! And Sam & Dean exorcising the Smoke Monster? Link me!!! (I didn't read that one.... did I?)
gottalovev
Feb. 7th, 2010 01:31 am (UTC)
I did, I did! lol!

okay, so Damon as Boone was Big Bad Wolf (a gift for Janie at Lost Hohoho, really silly)

and the Winchester boys on the island is Definitely not Shambhala (but it's good money that I wrote last spring. very few people read it, but it's okay! and please don't feel like you HAVE to read it. it's there, though ;)
