Lost 2.5 review

YAY! Finally a really good episode. LOST IS BACK!

foxxcub, you were right! ^___^ *throws hat in the air, Mary Tyler Moore style*

OMG, did I love Jin and Sun in this episode! And she wins hands down, Best Flashback Hair Evah!

Not much Sawyer but, er, I wasn't hating Ana so much this ep. I love Adewale (Mr. Echo?) A LOT.

He's gay for JACK, YES! And that would get her off his back, heh.

Wonderful Jack/Sun moment. Awww but they managed to dodge - yet again - what happened to teh wife. Oh well.

And OMG SKATE! *whimper*

Michael you are a stupid ass and you deserve to be kilt dead by The Scary, Scary Barefoot, Teddy Bear-Toting Others about eight different ways.

(And also wow, no whiny Charlie this ep! Score!)

NEXT WEEK THREE WEEKS FROM NOW: Sawyer NEEDS JACK STAT! And finally someone is taking care of him! THANK CHRIST.

Also, stomach churning DOOM. Dammit. Dammit. I an unspoiled but nervous. Wow - are they trying to make us think it's Sawyer? Dammit, they keep doing that! But I am not falling for it this time, you monkeys. ;-D They KNOW we love him and just want to fuck with us but in this case I'm glad I've been led to believe that won't be happening. Er, right...?

My rating: 3.5 stars

Serious, who is more gorgeous than Yunjin Kim? She's my major girl crush of the moment.

Not much Sawyer but, er, I wasn't hating Ana so much this ep. I love Adewale (Mr. Echo?) A LOT.

Not much with the Ana hate this week? Will wonders never cease. ;) And I love Echo too. He's so...guh. But that's just me.

I know. The next three weeks are going to be hell. Maybe it's just me, but I'm working under the theory that they'll do the "death" and the "reunion" thing in the same episode. Just like they did with the whole "Claire gives birth"/"Boone dies" thing last year. *shrugs* Just a theory.

Mr. Echo is just the coolest. LOVE HIM. I need icons!

I alas, have no Sun icons right now and I might need some. Because yeah with the girl crush there too. ;-D

The next episode will KILL ME. It will give me everything my fangirl heart has wanted with near-death Sawyer (and being reunited with Jack?! and er, Kate) but also urgh, actual death of (I assume) someone else. EEEP.

Oct. 20th, 2005 05:27 am (UTC)
See, Ana's gonna win you over by forcing Jack and Sawyer to do it for her viewing pleasure *headscratch* Did I just get a really odd non-con bunny?

Best Flashback Hair Evah! *snort*

I am vigilantly ignoring the promo of DOOM!

Oct. 20th, 2005 05:33 am (UTC)
Eh, as long as she's not in UberBItch mode she's not soooo horrible. Also less strain on the acting skills that way, LOL.

Promo of doom is worrisome but OMG!Swooning!Sawyer! *swoons myself, rewatches*
Oct. 20th, 2005 05:29 am (UTC)
He's gay for JACK, YES! And that would get her off his back, heh.

Hahahaha! That was a totally 'Bitch Please Are You For Real? Of course I'm Mad Gay for Jack' moment. LOVED it. I loved it even more because he didn't deny it. *DIEZ*

Sun/Jin = My Het OTP on this show. Though I won't be rushing to write fic just yet, heh...

And who is taking care of Sawyer?!
Oct. 20th, 2005 05:35 am (UTC)
OMG! That was just PRICELESS! I need an icon that says 'Mad Gay for Jack!' LOL.

Yes, Sun/Jin is the real thing. Kate - you pale, pale imitation of womanhood!

I hope they get Sawyer back to Jack but at this point I'll settle for *someone* taking care of him. But they have to get him back to the doc (and the antibiotics stash) right? RIGHT?!!

*fangirls myself into a quivering heap*

I love Adewale (Mr. Echo?) A LOT.

Word. He is just all sorts of JungleMan cool.
Oct. 20th, 2005 05:54 am (UTC)
Yes he is! And Michael needs to STFU and do what he says! ;-D
Oct. 20th, 2005 07:31 am (UTC)
Yeah! Sun rocks. Mr. Eko too. Me likey him.

Are you gay? Bwahahaha!

And that preview! Don't you love the way Sawyer's hair flails about with a mind of its own?! *swoon*

are they trying to make us think it's Sawyer?

Yuppers. The promo monkeys are at it again.
Oct. 20th, 2005 06:01 pm (UTC)
I got sooo wound up over those "I think there's something really wrong with Sawyer" promos of doom for "Deus Ex Machina" and then it was just something so jokey. *grrr* Now I enjoy the J/S snark in that ep but at the time I was kind of foaming at the mouth, LOL. (That, plus wtf with the kidney theft storyline?)

So yeah, taking it easier this time around but I still expect to be put through the wringer because I wouldn't have said I was all that attached to Boone and that episode KILLED me. If Jack is doctoring and angsting again ... yeah, I'll be over here in a little wibbly puddle.
Oct. 20th, 2005 08:26 am (UTC)
If i hadn't already snapped and read spoilers on who dies i would of snapped and read him becuase it looks like it'll be him on the promo.
Oct. 20th, 2005 06:03 pm (UTC)
They've said over and over that Sawyer is too integral to the show for me to fall for hints that he's the one going. But I don't think I'm going to be happy to see anyone go - unless it were Michael, Ana-Lucia or Charlie and I don't think it's any of them.

Oct. 20th, 2005 06:04 pm (UTC)
OMG! I love you! This is too damn funny and yeah, Ana's totally gay. *nods vigorously*

I squeeed loud and hard and scared my dog over that line, LOL.

And seeing swooning!Sawyer may just be the death of me. *eep*

Oct. 20th, 2005 12:29 pm (UTC)
See I wasn't too into this episode, but at the same time, I really liked it, I liked their backstory, and how they met, it was sweet.

And I have to say, and I will when I do my commentary, a tiny commentary...Ana gets 5 points back just for asking him if he was gay!!

And I really liked Jack and Sun, see, I would so much rather see him have a great conversation with her, than that constant power struggle with Kate.

And after the hiatus, Sawyer, oh Sawyer, if that infection gets any worse, I hope that Desmond had some anti-biotics in that hatch, that's all I'm sayin'.
Oct. 20th, 2005 06:06 pm (UTC)
Oh really? Too bad! I was so glad there wasn't any more goddamn hatch! ;-D And also less Kate was fine with me.

The gay question - not expecting that at all and OMG, so funny. Total shout out!

Jack and Sun are great together (in a non shippy way). I loved that scene and him trying to reassure her and still be struggling with his own grief.

SAWYER! Doesn't Jack still have some antibiotics? They didn't use them all on the marshall and Sawyer's arm did they? Poor Sawyer. Always so abused! And I thought *I'*d been rough on him in fic!!

Hee...I actually thought this was one of the duller episodes. Last week was an improvement over the first two and then this one was more like the first two. I love the character development, but at the same time when the flashback to Sun & Jin began it was kind of like here we go again. But if it had been a Sawyer or Locke flashback episode I would have been totally wrapped up in it.
Oct. 20th, 2005 06:10 pm (UTC)
Aw, really? OK, I'll give you that the whole Michael section was boring and rather poorly paced. Partly because I kept wanting to see more Sawyer. Hey, I'm biased and I admit it! More Michael screentime = boring TV.

When ARE we going to get that Sawyer flashback? Dammit, next week (grrr, episode I mean) would be a perfect opportunity! *tries to be patient*

I thought we got some new and different stuff with Sun and Jin and saw totally different sides of them that really endeared them both to me. Last week was good except for the peanut butter and whiny Charlie, both of which I can live without. ;-D

Didn't love the Locke fb this season but then nothing will ever live up to "Walkabout" will it?
Oct. 20th, 2005 02:10 pm (UTC)
Michael needs to be kicked in the head. I humbly volunteer my services. Like, gee, Sawyer only saved Michael's life. I spit on people who do that all the time, don't you? [/sarcasm]

He's gay for JACK, YES! And that would get her off his back, heh.

I've decided that Sawyer is the Jack Sparrow of Lost fandom, in that he is completely and totally omnisexual. Any where, any time, if he can get it and it feels good then he doesn't really spend a lot of time pitching fits. I love it. And Jack is going to go crazy and yell, and ovaries will explode.

I wanna like Mr. Eko/Echo 'cause he seems to be naturally what Sayid has to struggle to reach...but he can put aloe on Jin's wee little headbutt scrape, but he can't peek at Sawyer's hole that shouldn't be there? Ah, well. He looks like he's going to atone by being the strongest voice advocating taking Sawyer with them three weeks from now. I'll forgive him then.

And so help me, if Michael doesn't also stand up for Sawyer, then I might have to climb through my television screen. I've given him about all the slack for being worried about Walt and out of his head that I can manage.

OMG, did I love Jin and Sun in this episode! And she wins hands down, Best Flashback Hair Evah!

Yunjin needs an Emmy HARD. Sun is amazing.

Oct. 20th, 2005 07:05 pm (UTC)
Oh yes please DO kick Michael in the head. Seriously, the man needs some sense beaten into him. WHY ARE ALL THE WRONG PEOPLE GETTING BEATEN UP LATELY?

And if he doesn't take Sawyer's side in a life or death situation, yeah, I'll be reaching through my TV too and strangling him hard. As I said earlier, it's Michael who's being the most selfish in this whole situation while Sawyer is trying for some kind of group effort at least. Apart from digging Jack out of that cave, Michael's really only ever been about helping himself and Walt (was that shower ever built?). Everyone has had isolationist and me-first tendencies but it's always Sawyer who gets stuck as the crabby, only-out-for-himself loner when that just ain't so. *yes I'm going to just keep defending him with my last breath, darn it!*

I guess no one can tend to Sawyer yet because a) they writers are still convinced he needs to be neglected and abused to play on our sympathies or something and b) they're building up to the big Jack savior mode moment. Or so we can all hope, at least. *quivers in anticipation of the next ep*

I've already forgiven Eko/Echo for walloping Sawyer in the face because yeah, big misunderstanding at first. You know my feelings on the whole foot-in-wound situation. ;-D

Yunjin rocked this so hard. I love her to pieces.

I liked And Found.
( Warning: lengthy comment ahead -- guess I had a lot of thoughts on this episode!)
I find many Lost epis are like REM songs. I like 'em well enough the first time simply because I like the show (/group). But when I watch (/listen to) 'em again, I like them more, and I catch more (like, going back to last week, the fact that the chicken in Hurley's dream was the owner of the convenience store where he bought the winning ticket). That said, haven't seen And Found again...yet
Loved AL using the word "gay" -- first time, acknowledging, just maybe maybe, the subtext we all know is there. And Sawyer's nondenial response. Given his previous racism, you'd expect a homophobic response, right?

Beyond the plain plot, I think And Found was well written in the way it explored relationships, with a focus on marriage. There was the more obvious “how they met” flashback theme of Sun and Jin. Framed by the lost wedding ring, which I just knew was going to be by the bottle (since they showed the bottle during the previouslies). I thought it was interesting, the sort of joint flashback aspect – starting with Sun’s flashback, switching to Jin’s, also as an effective way to switch between the action on each side of the island. (I thought Sun was going to witness Jin being a heroic doorman standing up to her father and fall for him then, btw.)

(Does anyone know what Jin’s friend was reading from that predicted his love-life fate?)

We got to see Sun interact with folks we’ve rarely seen her have real conversations with – Jack, Hurley, Locke, all of which were great scenes for character development. First time Jack told anyone other than Desmond he was married (at least that we’ve seen).

Liked the slight parallel of Kate and Sawyer to Sun and Jin – parallel in that Sun and Jin were estranged, and this was Kate’s first admission that Sawyer means something to her.

(Is it my imagination, or is Sun’s English way better than it was in S1?)

Likewise, we got to see a bit of Jin and Eko’s characters, Jin trying to communicate more. And intriguing that Sawyer would choose marriage as the question to ask as a tactic to keep Ana-Lucia from leaving without him.

As for Michael. Does he really not remember that Sawyer saved his fucking life? Jeezus. Sawyer just don’t get no respect. And when he said every man for himself – after all the time he tried to be a team and kept getting rejected by Mike the Meanie, who can blame him?
Enough of the whining already. If it wouldn’t be painful for poor Walt, I’d be happy to have Michael be the one who won’t make it in three weeks (that’s it for any speculation. I HATE that tptb feel the need to knock off favorite characters. They better not touch Bernard or Rose!!!).

(Did Sun's father remind you of Christian? Your latest Jack/James fic made me think of this...)
