Lost DVDs, post the 2nd or 3rd

I wish there was a Josh commentary! :-(

And since we know that James "Rockford" Garner gave his personal approval to Josh Holloway, I'm wondering if that's where they got his real name. James. Rockford. James Ford. Eh? OK, don't mind me. I've had a bit of wine.

So I just watched the commentary on The Moth. Still HATE that episode but it's so much better with commentary. I mean, could that fucking moth be any more cheesy? No it could not. Kate and Charlie have the worst backstories. They JUST DO. Apart from Michael. (Special - still the WORST. EPISODE. EVER.)

Things I was happy to learn:

Evi, newbie that she is, objected to bad dialogue! Good for her, even though she was overruled. However, I strongly object to the assertion that she always finds a way to make bad dialogue work. She doesn't. But it's nice to know she can spot bad dialogue from good. I hope she at least protested the "Jack, Boone died" line.

Everything Dom says is slashy. I love Dom so much more than Charlie.

The actor playing Liam is ridiculously good looking. And a Yankee!

Josh cleans his dimples out with Q-tips. Heh.

Um, the prods think that the cave-in convinced us all. *cough* Yeah, love the styrofoam boulders.

Personally I enjoyed the Pilot commentaries much more. ;) The Jack/Kate ship is close to Lindelof's heart! *Cuddles him*

And your icon makes me weak in the loins. Er, to use a Sawyer-ism. XD

Everything Dom says is slashy.

*nods* It's a fact.

As you can guess, I have the opposite reaction to "The Moth." Despite the paper thin metaphor and the rather unbelievable impetus for Charlie's habit... well, I dunno. Admittedly, it's hard to see past the Dom-love. Plus, it is from whence Pacecest was borne. *grins* And it gave certain fake fansite folks our reason for existing.

But I think Dom and Terry brought in great performances despite the weaker points.

Not only is Neil Hopkins a Yankee, but he's from Trenton, NJ... about an hour from me! LOL Although I think he grew up in CO.

I think I'm starting to give Kate a chance. Gonna put my faith in JJ and Damon (with who I am now completely in love) and hope her fucked up backstory comes together in the long run. My hope is that we're too close to see the macro of Kate's character at this point. Meanwhile, her general rough-hewn-ness (yes, a word!) gives us plenty of wiggle room in ficwriting. ;P

Yay, Evi. Too bad they didn't listen to her.

One of the reasons I hate this ep is that we didn't learn anything new about Charlie except that he was religious. Big fuckin' deal. The clunky, clunky metaphor was awful. Kate was annoying. Sawyer was OOC. Eh. Just BAD writing all around. But if you're a Dom fangirl, I guess none of that matters, LOL. *shuns Pacecest* ;-D

But I'm glad Evi was trying to protest the badness being foisted off on her.

I'm the same way. Loooooooooooooooove Dom, but Charlie can irk the crud out of me. LOL.

And I think I'm alone on this, but I actually LIKED Special. I really, really think I'm alone on that though. Might just be because of how much I adore Michael.

And oh, do I love James Garner. So his approval of Josh gives me squishy happies!

I spent a hefty chunk of this season hating Charlie and wanting him to die. Claire too. Especially if they're in scenes together. *vomits copiously* It was the peanut butter, really. I hope Charlie relapses. I can't stand that much treacle!

OH GOD! Special! What about the awful CGI polar bear? It was worse than "Sabretooth!" I hated the ep so much I prayed Michael would die so we'd never be subjected to another backstory from him. But Harold, now, I love Harold. They finally redeemed Michael to me by the end of the season (Jin too) but it took all damn season to do it. But don't ever ask me to watch "Special" again! ; -D

Yay, James Garner! When is Rockford Files coming to DVD, dammit?!!!

I read someplace James Ford was a pirate, that seems fitting. Although it'd be more fun if Sawyer was named after James Garner.

I kind of hated how they made it sound like they thought the writer was a bitch for wanting the actors to say her lines as written. On one hand, good on Evie for wanting to make it suck less; on the other hand, it's Evie's job to say it in a way that it doesn't sound horrible and she's not too good at that. No matter how much Lindelof loves everything she does.

I read about the pirate too. ;-D Makes the 'Dread Pirate Sawyer' icons all that much more fun.

Yeah, I can't believe they got away with smacking down the writer like that. Ouch! Except, um, I hate the writing in this episode. So, uh, yay?

The love fest about how great all the actors are in every scene is a bit much, really. Save it for the real emoting, guys! ;-D

Usually I don't listen to the commentaries until much later after I get a DVD..but I broke down the second day and had to watch, well I watched most of them.

I think you know how I feel about Kate, sorry, but really does she have to been involved in everything. I think they are doing more of Kate's backstory, like why she is a criminal..but I will say that after Jack found out about her past--I really think it changed the way he felt about her..not that I minded, Kate is not a favorite of mine, and well, I kinda feel that Jack should be with someone else on that island..oh I don't know, someone with a Southern accent and really really deep dimples. *smile*

;-D ITA.

Jack needs to be with Sawyer. I love how slashy the whole commentary is so far, LOL.

Huh?
I'm not buying the dvds until the show has ended. I want to make damn sure that before I invest that kind of money that they don't wind up doing some dumbass thing that will make me quit watching. Like kill off my favorite character or have the monster be a dinosaur. Anyway, I said all that to ask this:

What the hell does Rockford have to do with LOST that he gave his approval on Josh? Not that I don't agree with his taste :)

Re: Huh?
Oh, I couldn't wait! I never buy TV shows on DVD and never the second they come out but I'm too addicted to this show not to. ;-D

The James Garner comment is pretty random. He happened to see Josh at an event with the rest of the cast early on and just singled him out and told someone else, "That guy's got a shot." So that's all there is to it.

The one commentary that I haven't watched yet, mostly because I hate that episode something fierce. Evie showing potential pleases me, though.

And, um..*coughs* OOC or not, this was the first episode where I really started to make Sawyer my boy as opposed to just being amused by him, because it was one of the first times that Josh got to flash that "I'm wounded, fix me" look while saying something incredibly assy.

Thank you. It is a lame episode. But the commentary is funny. I just ff-ed through a lot of the backstory, though.

Now, I was down with Sawyer from the second they showed him reading that letter and getting all teary. So I didn't need any more convincing than that. As I said, in this ep, I don't buy that he would be that needy and openly jealous of Jack. Or that much of an ass he wouldn't tell her about the cave-in. But he did look darn good!

I, too, hated The Moth....only because it was so frickin' cheesy with the metaphor that an eight-year-old could spot....stupid moth. Whoever is writing the Charlie backstory needs to take English 101 again because it is by far the worse use of a metaphor in the entire history of writing. But however much I hated The Moth, I loathed Hearts and Minds and Special with a burning passion. Two of the most boring episodes ever. My faves are still All the Best Cowboys and Exodus. Whoever is writing the Jack backstory gets major props from me. Yay for Jack's backstory! Yay!

Yes, that moth metaphor was THE WORST. Although honestly, I wasn't too fond of Sawyer's boar the first time around either. No more animal metaphors, please!

I liked Hearts and Minds - at least the backstory. The island fakeout was extremely annoying. But hey, it gave us Bondage!Boone! ;-D Special has no right to exist. A COMPLETE waste of our time and the worst CG creature in the history of television.
Worse than Sabretooth!

I'm always up for more Jack backstory! Or Sawyer! ;-D
