It's not just you, but I've been pretty "meh" all season.

What would make you stop watching at this point?

Killing off Jack or Sawyer and I start watching VM live. Kill off both? And I'm done. They're about the only thing tying me to the show, and right now the show isn't giving me much reason to care about them either. How sad.

What's more exciting?

New Supernatural excites me the most. And new Smallville actually excites me more than Lost. And that's probably very, very wrong. But very, very true. Lost is just missing something this year and that sucks up one side and down the other. :/

I wouldn't stick around if Jack or Sawyer were killed off. I know I'm just a rabid J/S fangirl, but this season has not been satisfying and one of those reasons is that they've been apart this whole time. And that they're cramming these new characters down our throat. Which only gets my gag reflex going. I mean, it's definitely had its moments so far. But they're averaging about .333 this season, while last season was more like .75.

I tried Supernatural and it was just wasn't for me. But I'm very excited 24 is back. ;-D

I feel the need to clarify my "make me giddy" answer... it's me and it's a Charlie episode - do I really have to say anything else?
I'm ignoring the pics that I am assuming you are really referring to. I think that's the best way to deal with them.
Sorry, I shall go back to typing up p0rn...

Well, you know how I feel about the Charlie backstories thus far. :-/ Not the show's best writing. *coughs*

And the other thing -- will not be viewed by me.

And woo, p0rn!!

Despite all the times I've been dissapointed before, I'm trying to be optemistic. As long as I see as litte of Little Miss Trigger Happy as possible, I'll be okay. Because I'm curious about Eko.

I don't see why they need to show us his backstory so soon. I'd be perfectly happy having him remain a man of mystery for a little while longer. But it could be good. I've just been disappointed so much, I'm not going to get my expectations up.

Awww. That's pretty much my stance all S2, sadly. :-/ They've really squandered most of my love for the show at this point.

The only thing that would make me stop watching is the death of someone I care about on the show...not that we wouldn't have a clue before hand, but I hope they don't, like, bring Eko and Libby in and knock one of them off for shock value.

The bitch from hell? They can drop her off the first cliff crap, already done...shoot her...shiskabob her...um, tie her up and flay her like Willow did to Andrew? *is hopeful*

Jan. 11th, 2006 02:39 am (UTC)
Oh, I wouldn't miss Libby at all. Eko, probably not so much either, honestly. *sorry* I mean, he's cool and all, but I'm not very invested in him at this point.

But we all know who's at the top of my hit list.

I am not that excited. It's kind of a bummer. If I could get excited about Sawyer/Kate, then I might be a tiny bit excited. I mean, it's Sawyer! But it's Kate. *sigh*

And thanks to your poll, I was trying to figure out what it would take to get me to stop watching. I think as long as there's Sawyer I'll keep coming back. Although Sawyer/Ana would be really, really hard to take. Which should make me happier about Sawyer/Kate, right? At least it's not Sawyer/Ana.

Jan. 11th, 2006 03:15 am (UTC)
I keep thinking you're into Sawyer/Kate too! *pets you* Maybe there'll be some Jack/Sawyer interaction?!

I can't watch anyone getting romantic with She Will Not Be Named. :-( It really does make me sick to my stomach.

I think the fact that they're starting this new cycle with a Charlie ep is making me nauseous....only because past Charlie eps have been barf-inducing with its stupid metaphors and corny past life storylines. "Oh, my big brother made me do drugs....wah wah wah....oh I tried to quit drugs for love....wah wah wah...." Makes me want to gag on a spoon. *bleh*

The Charlie ep is actually in a few weeks, I think. Tomorrow is Mr. Eko. And yes, I've LOATHED the Charlie backstories so far. And I started off liking Charlie! I really don't see what there is to reveal in his backstory, but oh well.

So save your dread for another week or so, LOL. And as you probably know, it's not the Charlie story that's giving me hives, but the other stuff I've heard about. :-/

The Shield is still on teevee? That baffles me on so many levels.

Am so tired at this point (and likely will still be tomorrow by the time the ep rolls around) that it could be an hour of Charlie flossing and I'd probably be all, "Squeeee! New Lost!"

Honestly, I have my hopes up for a little OT3 tension tomorrow. Hopefully they won't be dashed too badly. :)

You don't like the crime shows? I love that one because it's not as formulaic as so many of the cop shows.

I wish I could squee. It's not all Lost's fault, of course. :-/

I'm going to look on the bright side and be happily surprised if the ep is good.

If they killed Sawyer, I would be outta there. It's all about Sawyer for me. And his hair. ;-) S2 has been pretty much crap from that standpoint. And I don't like it when a show start off character driven and then does a 180 and the characters become subserviant to DA PLOT! That's all S2 has been, to me anyway. Meh. I can't even keep up with DA PLOT it so convoluted. Urgh. And too many new characters getting too much screen time! And when "certain other characters" get A SECOND backstory before Sawyer even GETS ONE!? And... and... My brain just exploded. =>8-O Sorry for the rant. I'm done. Kthnxbye :-P

OMG, we share a fangirl brain!! ;-D

Although I can't begrudge another Jack backstory so much ... I really do love Jack *almost* as much as Sawyer. But GODDAMN, I'm still pissed we got shafted over the Sawyer backstory from "Adrift." *grrr* Because the one we got there? Was just complete and utter crap and such a pointless retread.

And yes, S2 has just plain STUNK, for the most part. The new characters are way too prominent and we so don't even fucking care, thank you very much. They HAD a perfectly good show - why go fuck it up? It's like New Coke. We just want the original, kthx!

And we demand our Sawyer screentime!

Thank you for ranting along with me. It makes me feel SO MUCH better!

The one and only thing that would stop me from watching is:

SPOILER,SPOILER,SPOILER!!!!



Im sorry, I always read to much into things, but I absolutely dread that this is true, that they will make a stupid thing like that to Sawyers character. : If the new character is Sawyers daughter I never watch it again. Then they have stolen his character from me. I havent functioned normal after drawing that conclusion, and I hope Im wrong. Nobody else seems to see it. Reasons I think it is so, is that ¨she will be found in his episode, his episode will be "shocking", We will see him as a teenager and he will meet a woman from his past. I always have so much bad luck when it come to these things. I hope Im wrong for once.

I think that the only thing that could make me stop watching is if Jack or Sawyer got killed off.

What would make me nauseous would be a Jack and Ana hook up.

What would make me really excited, Jack telling people off again, Sawyer being at full force, and a twist, like one great power struggle between Locke and Jack with Sawyer siding with Jack and them having to work closely together putting Jack's brains and Sawyer's street smarts together..okay, I ramnbled. But yeah, there have been a few episodes that have renewed my faith in Season 2, but there have been a few that just...but I still love the show, but I really want to see that spark of Season 1 again.

*pardon my rant, I finally actually saw that photo for myself - excuse me while I go vomit*

If they have Jack hook up with Ana I'm going to have to hate his character too. WTF? Is he eating the wacky head paste? I mean, what earthly reason could he have to be interested in that fucking bitch? I mean, show a little loyalty to your fellow castaways, will ya? And a little personal integrity. I'm going to be very disappointed in Foxy too, for going along with this, when it's so completely fucking out of character for Jack. I mean, the murderous she-bitch from hell shows up and suddenly he gets amorous? PLEASE!

I REALLY wanted Jack and Sawyer to be friends at least, united against Locke or whomever, but looks like that's only going to happen in fic. DEATH TO THE NEW CHARACTERS. I tell you, they are so fucking unwelcome and unnecessary, it's not even funny.

I am excited about new Lost,new episode is about Mr.Eko's back ground and he's the one newcomer I love very much:)

Sawyer/Ana...*shudders*...this could be the end.I can't stand the thought of them together.

Aww, I like him, but his being there does not outweigh all the other crap they've shoved down our throats this season. AL. The hatch nonsense with the same footage over and over again. Lame backstories that tell us nothing we didn't already know!

And I'm out of there if there's Ana/Anyone. I mean, Eko can have her, that's fine. But I don't want to see anyone kissing that ugly, scowling mug, kthx!
