My bad, bad boys



Lost rerun tonight: Pilot, Part 2

Warning: fangirl squeeing ahead
Ah, a dose of angry, angry Sawyer! Oh yeah! ;-D I almost forgot what a complete *ass* he used to be. Hee. You've come a long way, baby. Except for that secret softy moment when he reads the letter, with that lump in his throat and we see he's, yep, a *tortured* bad boy. (falls in love all over again). And then the asshole is back when he grabs Kate and says, "I know girls like you." Oh man, it's good to be bad. He's so damn hot there and he's totally got her number.

That fight with Sayid - hanging onto Sawyer's jeans! All observed and noted before but so much fun to revisit.

And the polar bear shooting! That's my badass. (sighs happily) And yeah, I like the short hair. And the sideburns.

I *still* get goosebumps during the transmission scene. (shivers)



Russell Crowe on Letterman
Angry, angry Russell! Or as he was tonight, apologetic, shamefaced, *good* boy Russell. Dr. Phil Letterman kept asking him how he was going to "change his behavior" and he kept dodging the issue. But he was able to laugh at himself, at least, so he's one up on Sean Penn. And how badly do you think he got chewed out by the studio heads? And he did this on the *last* Ron Howard movie he did, where he shoved/bullied/harassed that BAFTA producer and kissed that 2nd Oscar goodbye. He had to hustle like crazy to make sure that Ron and Akiva and everyone else got their Oscars, doncha think? Of course, none of them would *have* Oscars if it weren't for his performance. He is the only Oscar-worthy aspect of that film, IMHO, although I did really like Jennifer Connelly in it. But she does owe him. Wow. I still haven't seen "Cinderella Man." Maybe next week.

So ... you think Josh is a better singer than Russell? I may be a Russell fan but I never bought any TOFOG albums. ;-D

Are you gonna laugh if I told you I used to own a TOFOG CD? I think it was 'Gaslight' and I have to admit, Russell had a pretty decent voice but...yeah, his lyric writing leaves much to be desired. I listened to that CD a couple of times and then sold it on eBay for twice the amount I paid to get it. Tee hee.....

I had a friend in Texas who saw him in concert (I think around the time that 'Gladiator' blew up). She said he was really nice and got really drunk.

I've seen him sing on talk shows but never in person. My former coworkers who knew I loved Russell used to tease me all the time and assume I had the album.

I actually met him once at a film fest in early '97 and got his autograph! He was very nice. I took a photo but promptly *lost the camera*! D'oh.

But yeah, Russ, maybe some anger management lessons are in order, 'k?

Me too. Although the polar bear scene makes me laugh now, despite the badassness of Sawyer (poor, defenseless animatronic polar bear!). But I couldn't help thinking, once again, that he looks so much better now. I found myself drooling over Charlie (well, yeah, surprise) and Sayid more than Sawyer, despite having become such a Sawyer!slut (ahem) since the pilot originally aired. The scruff and the longer hair are clearly to blame. :)

Seeing again how much of a prick he could be in the pilot, I do hope they don't soften him up any more as the show progresses. I think he hit the right tone by "Exodus." Any softer would be un-Sawyer.

It was fun to see SmackedOut!Charlie too. Hee. Everyone's been so reformed! ;-D

And we stil don't know what the hell Kate's crime is! (fumes)

Yes, Sawyer shouldn't go soft. ;-D Although I do love the many moods of Sawyer (thank goodness for my mood theme!)

i remember the pants part and an icon someone made that said something like "sharing sawyer" or something.

i seriously did shiver again at that transmission scene.

Yes, I've seen that icon - both Sayid and Jack have a firm grip on Sawyer and I think it says "Sharing Sawyer is love." ;-D

Speaking of icons -- yours is seriously freaking me out, dude! Johnny as Willy Wonka scares me a little!

You know, it's so funny--when he's staring at the polar bear right after he's shot it, I kept wanting to put a bubble over Josh's head that says "I've seen worse CGI, trust me." Hee ;D

The way he says "I know your type" ALWAYSALWAYS makes me literally go "GUH!!" out loud. Every. Damn. Time. Sssssskate, baby.

Oh, and I every time I watch the early eps, I think Josh looks young. But hawt. Oh yes. I loves my scruffy Sawyer, but there's something to be said for pilot!Sawyer ;)

I loved him from the beginning. (elbows later converts to the back of the line) LOL.

He does look younger when he's (relatively) clean-shaven. And of course when we get those glimpses of vulnerability. (melts into a little fangirl puddle)

He *has*! Although I think that polar bear was mostly animatronic. It was certainly better than its CGI cousin in "Special." That was an all-time low for Lost, if you ask me!

Mmmm. When he says that, I jump. I squeal. Because it's so damn hot! He's just *purring.*

(I need pilot, part 2 icons again, dammit!)
