I'm terrible with these. I just vote for anything. The backstories thing is the hardest. Part of me thinks they are just part of Lost's typical style. Part of me thinks it would be really daring if they dropped them.

They're running out of ideas, definitely. The backstories feel pointless and padded. I think they shouldn't have them part of each show. Maybe that's why the Pilot is still so great - no flashbacks (other than to the plane.)

Hee. I have one in mind. I don't know when I can get to it though!

lol :D

As for backstories, I like them but they need to focus on the important characters and stuff or just not do them if they will just be used to fill time. Like that Michael-centric episode earlier this season was so unneeded and added NOTHING new.

I went and read every spoiler on your site earlier in the season when I was completely disillusioned with the show but now I guess I want *some* surprises left. And I think everyone knows which spoiler I most want to come true. ^__^

And OMG, WORD on Michael's pointless, asinine backstory. "Special" was already the worst Lost ep ever, so a redux was just beyond pointless. And I hear we're getting yet *another* Michael backstory. Which I guess will be like the Claire one, on the island, so at least it shouldn't be about anymore fucking custody hearings. But I haven't missed Michael for one second. *sigh* It just makes me so furious that Sawyer gets one episode this year and Ana and Michael each get two! And why did we need the Rose/Bernard one, exactly? *fumes*

I think that while most of the flashbacks now are uber-boring, and totally unecessary, I'd really really like to see more Sawyer flashbacks. :/

PRison Break fanfic! :D

Agreed. If it were up to me, no more backstories except for Sawyer and Jack. ;-) Especially Sawyer. He's definitely led the most interesting life, pre-island.

And hee, I did write a Lost/PB crossover once.

I'm getting pretty tired of Jack's flashbacks, because he has had so many. :/

And I've read that one already. ;D

Awww, I know. I still like them but I think I'm in the minority. I love the Jack/Christian dynamic. And I still want to know about the tattoos! ;)

And I figured you had. I had an idea for another fic but I'm not sure how original it is!

Aww. ;-) I'd like to write the rest of it before I post anymore... which could be a little while yet. But it's not forgotten.

I miss the Jack/Sawyer days! I got online and there was at least 5 to 10 new stories with them. Now it´s all prisonbreak *sniff*
I would drag my ass to fanfiction.net if those stories were slightly interesting. But it seems like all the talent is collected here...
Just wish Jack would own Sawyer a bit more. Tie him up...toss him over his shoulder...run off...the "Men Health" cover are doing things to me. I´m scared!

Aww, well I think there's some burnout in the fandom because we've had so little to work with this season. And the same scenarios got written over and over. Which is why I love AUs so much. But even then, there's definitely some overlapping of ideas.

I haven't read very much PB fic. I love the show but I just don't need teh fic as much, you know?

And GUH, yes that Men's Health cover. *diez*

For fic I had to choose other. Me would loves some solo Sawyer, pre-island, during one of his cons. I don't think anyone's done that yet. I would love it. Angsty loner Sawyer. Yum.

Apr. 20th, 2006 05:05 pm (UTC)
Hmm. I think most pre-island fics with Sawyer conning someone end up with him conning Kate or targeting Shannon or something. There must be some with angsty loner Sawyer! ;) I'll think about it.

I've never seen any. But I have another idea. Has anyone ever done this; Sawyer goes back to the bar after he kills Duckett. Christian is still there. :-)

Your polls are too fun, I love em I do.
and I totally forgot that Will was coming back, I may have to cave and watch it later...
and while the flash backs of people I don't care about annoy me, I still like the concept, call me crazy.

Awww, thanks!

I taped last night but haven't watched it yet.

And the flashbacks, I like the idea but they're starting to be the draggiest part of the show. Mostly, we're learning nothing new from them and that's a shame. And they have very little to do with what's going on on the island, or else they skew the episode to fit the flashbacks and then the whole episode is a waste of time. *Rose/Bernard* BLEAH.
