Lost review - Dave


Well, that's the most easily summarized ep ever: Hurley has an imaginary friend. Not exactly "Locke used to be in a wheelchair," is it?

But I did love "No, but I just saw a polar bear on rollerskates eating a mango." Yay for Snarky!Charlie.

Still, very savvy of Dave to point out all the ridiculousness inherent in the show, such as a hot chick like Libby being interested in Hurley (She almost kissed him? Bzuh?) and the amazing ubiquity of the numbers. Wait -- I'm writing this as the ep is still going. She actually did kiss him? No way I am buying this couple. Sorry. Oh wait, LOL. She's crazy too. Ok, then, go on you crazy kids. Because OK, yep, as we all suspected, Libby was a patient too. Ho-hum.

I think nearly every sci-fi/fantasy-based show has done an episode along these lines. "Your reality's all been a dream."

And bwah. "In all honesty, Ana Lucia, I don't care what you think." Word.

(Also, it's April now. Whatever happened to MR's supposed March court date? :-/)

Hmm. The button didn't get pushed. I like that they had that happen offscreen. That actually surprises me. I hope that means WE'RE FINALLY DONE WITH THE GODDAMN BUTTON NOW!

And next week: Angry!Jack. And Bondage!Jack? (Three week-hiatus *after* next week, I think.)

It's not next week?! Damn.

Why do you not find Libby/Hurley believable as a couple? (I think my reason is because they've barely had any interaction or scenes together, but I'm curious.)

No, my bad. It is next week, and *then* the three-week hiatus. So they can save the *good* stuff til May sweeps. Man, we're close the finale, right? What, four more eps or something?

As for Hurley/Libby (which I understand is "Hubby" for short, LOL), call me shallow, but the truth is she's hot, he's not. Not that it never happens in RL or TV land (like the guy who played Dave's character on Sex and the City, for one), but I'm just not buying it here. There's tons of other guys on the island she could go for, like that (if you squint) Boone lookalike who was running for the food. I just think she's going for him because a) she has an agenda and b) that's what the script calls for.

Wait, there's another hiatus?! What?! Ahem, excuse me for that mild freak out. Anyway, the next peisode...that's going to be tense. I really hated that tiny little smile on the-man-formerly-known-as-Henry-Gale's face. It's omenous. And I don't want to have to wait three weeks (?) to figure out what the hell he's so happy about.

And I'm actually into the whole Hurley/Libby thing because, dude, I need a break from all the angst. Though, if they were both in the loony bin, I guess there's angst there too. Crap. I can't escape it!

*sigh* Yes it was boring. I called the Dave being fake thing early on, and things like that tend to fly right over my head, so...that should give you some idea of how obvious it was.

(Also, it's April now. Whatever happened to MR's supposed March court date? :-/)

It was postponed. For reasons unknown.

Apr. 6th, 2006 05:29 am (UTC)
Oops, my bad. The hiatus is *after* next week. No more new eps after that until May. When it's sweeps month again.

*ducks* I just didn't care about Hurley at all this episode. The episode really did nothing for me. :-/ If I was supposed to get worked up about his situation, well, I just didn't. It really just dragged on too long.

Damn. Well, we can still keep hope alive that Ana will be killed by the end of the season, at least.

Yeah, I caught on to the Dave thing eventually ... I thought it was a little odd (and annoying) that Dave talked almost exactly like Hurley (and how many times can you say the word "dude" in a single damn sentence? I mean, DUDE!). Not the most original idea ever had, but I did like the suggestion that "Dave" was a negative manifestation of Hurley's own grief and guilt over the two people that died on the balcony, a way for Hurley to both escape and cope ... until it turned evil and suicidal =| An ok episode, but Hurley really sold it to me even if I didn't really wanna buy. Love me some Jorge.

Man, I am ALL for Bondage!Jack. And pseudo-Henry's starting to frighten me. I don't like that creepy-ass smile one damn bit, nuh-uh. Rat-bastard. Humph.

Apr. 6th, 2006 05:32 am (UTC)
LOL at your icon. ;-D

Sadly, this episode didn't do much for me. I just wasn't caught up in Hurley!land this time around.

But next week looks interesting. Showdown! Go, Angry!Jack. And yes, Jack's never been tied up yet on the show has he? *cackles evilly*

And dammit. :-/ That's a major bummer. I guess we're stuck with her for the rest of the season, at least.

Umm, well, I can't really say much about this ep. cuz, well, I kept like, leaving the room?

I thought Libby was attracted to Hurley because they were in the institute together? Or am I hallucinating? ;-)

They better stop with the tearing down of the fourth wall on this show. It's getting annoying! All these shout-outs is throwing me right out of the story. Grrrr.

Sawyer was hwat. Didn't have anything to do. Again. *sigh*
halfdutch
Apr. 7th, 2006 02:11 am (UTC)
OMG, me too! I paused my TiVo during the first commercial break and then I started doing stuff and then 10 minutes later I was like, "Oh wait, Lost is on!" LOL. Not exactly edge-of-the-seat TV.

I think Libby has an agenda, and an unsavory one at that. If it's just that she knows him from before ...? Eh, not the best motivation in the world. And I was tired of the pre-island connections about 6 episodes ago. *sigh* I really wish they would stop with those.

And yeah, addressing how unrealistic the show is doesn't make up for all its flaws. Although I have a list ready if they need more material to critique, LOL. (Exhibit A: This episode. Exhibit B: The Tailies)

And yeah, Sawyer was hot but I didn't even bother saying anything about his scenes because eh -- filler! We always love to look at Josh but after last week -- big comedown.

I thought Hurley attacking Sawyer was really really hilarious. Definitely the best thing about the episode.

Other than that, there wasn't a lot to yell hurrah over. The whole Dave-thing reminded me a lot of Fight Club.

It was good, but it felt kind of fillerish, the whole thing. Not that I didn't enjoy seeing Sawyer eat the cookie, or his dimples as he teased him -- if Hurley had just stuck it out, he would have handed over whatever he had, I'm sure. Oh well.

And yeah, Dave = Poor Man's Tyler Durden LOL.

I want to know why Hurley is the only character with his own theme. It's like that bumbling sort of "Oh, what's he up to now, that wacky guy!" music.


Does anyone know how many episodes there will be this season? Is it twenty-four, like the first? All the sites keep saying twenty...
halfdutch
Apr. 7th, 2006 02:04 am (UTC)
Hee, I never noticed!

I was just at TV-com and I couldn't really tell. I think we're getting 4 or 5 more eps. Does that sound right? Early information on eps is kind of sketchy this season!

I freakin' can't wait for next week..I LOVE ANGRY!JACK, sort of Out of control!Jack..remember last season when he went after Locke..damn that was all shades of hotness.

And looks like he and *humpf* Kate get stuck in that trap..worse yet, they have a heart to heart..but isn't next week's the last one until the finale at the end of May..and if someone's going to be getting busy..oh, sorry, but I'm just not going there. Could be worse though, it could be Jack works up all this anger and finds Ana and they...no, won't go there either.

**Yay for Locke for saying that, and seriously, what in the hell did she think he was going to do..plus, what, she's all of a sudden in charge there?
halfdutch
Apr. 7th, 2006 02:03 am (UTC)
Oooh, next week looks very good. Back to the main event, eh?

I wonder if Jack and Kate get captured together or if just he's taken ... we'll see! And will it be up to Sawyer to save him or them both?

And yeah, why is Ana suddenly the voice of calm and reason? Is she the jailkeeper because she's a former cop or because she's "learned her lesson" about violence? Who knows?!

And mmm, Jack in the shower. GUH, your icon!

Just after the ep aired I thought that maybe, since Libby was in the loony bin with Hurley, that she knew about his lottery win and she was after him for his money. But, he was in the institution before the win...and what would it matter on the island?

I think Libby is just the empathetic type, and she sees people for who they are rather than what they look like. Also, her being a patient doesn't preclude her being a psychologist. She seems to have a more knowledge than she'd pick up just from being a patient.

They need an island shrink so bad, I'd hate to see them have to give up the only one they've got!

ANOTHER hiatus? Shit. If what I think is going to happen next week actually does happen, that's gonna be REALLY painful.
halfdutch
Apr. 6th, 2006 07:52 pm (UTC)
Hmm, I don't buy Libby's actions and putting her together with Hurley is just convenience, I guess. Don't buy that either.

They're bringing Alias back in Lost's time slot for a while, and then saving the big guns til May sweeps, I guess. Man, almost the end of the season. And what a scattershot season it's been! Let's hope they remember to bring it for the finale, LOL.

OMG, I totally forgot to mention how White Rabbit-ish this ep was. Sooooo does that mean Jack's crazy, too? Oh wait...we already knew that. :P

I love your icon.
halfdutch
Apr. 6th, 2006 07:50 pm (UTC)
Hee, iamalreadyinuse made that for me as an interest icon a while back!

And I like Jack's brand of crazy better than Hurley's. This ep felt very filler-ish. I think we've officially run out of interesting/surprising/meaningful backstories.
