Hmm. Well, perhaps the Charlie fans liked it? I admit the baby powder commercial was funny but we got it - Charlie's sunk about as low as he can go. No, wait ... hang on. A little lower ...
I'm glad I got my squeeing in already over the OMG!Skate scene. Because besides that and Matchmaker!Sawyer and him trying to teach Hurley how to play blackjack -- which I loved! -- not much here. (So was Libby Hurley's shrink in the psych ward? Could she have *been* any more flirty? *shoves Hurley*)
Thank god for small miracles that there was no J/A hand holding. ;-D And OMG - could this show GET any more religious? I mean, heh, about Disciple!Hurley but puh-leez - ENOUGH with the religious stuff already. I'm sorry, but I just find it enormously cheesy, when used this way.
I mean, I didn't hate this episode. It's your classic "meh." Because -- what was the point again? To convince us Charlie is a pathetic loser? Yep, already there. The backstory wasn't bad. I actually didn't mind it. And hee - any Lair of the White Worm fans here recognize Charlie's mum? LOL.
But the island story - whole lot of NOTHING. I kept expecting there to be *something* behind Charlie's visions, something islandy. At least there weren't any totemic animals this time. So what was the point again, of this episode? Besides a placeholder or contractual obligation to give Dom and Emilie and Terry something to do?
But NEXT WEEK - it is next week, right? Damn. Finally something happens! Sun is kidnapped! Jack vs. Locke showdown. And Sawyer and Kate shacking up? Angry!Shirtless!Sawyer! Staticky message of DOOM?
