Was it me, or was anyone else’s sound messed-up during tonight’s episode of Lost? During the first half of the episode, there was this weird echo (not an Eko) every few seconds. It sounded pretty neat with the soundtrack and music bits, but for the voices, it was really annoying. It was even happening during the commercials, and just on the ABC station. So I’m guessing it was my lousy local ABC affiliate, which wouldn’t surprise me, because they mess things up on a regular basis.
On to the episode!
-So Locke was clinically depressed after getting kicked out of the commune? Just when you think his pre-island life couldn’t get any more lame, something like this comes along. Although (up till the end of this episode) I was thinking that there are a few survivors, Locke being the most prominent, who would never want to leave the island. But I kind of think that was the point of tonight’s episode.
-What good is that fancy invisible fence security system if it can’t alert the Others of a security breach? Maybe they just got tired of sending out a cleaning crew every time a bird flew into the thing.
-That was nice of them to give Jack his own little bungalow.
-I was surprised that Ben had a Craftmatic Adjustable Bed. Even more surprised it didn’t have a DHARMA logo on the side (but I was happy to see that the food in his refrigerator did).
-Why is it that every time someone on this island asks “why…” (“why are you here?” “why don’t you want to leave the island?”) the answer is always “you wouldn’t understand”? Is it that hard to take a few minutes and just talk through the answer? Or in addition to healing tumors and spine problems, does the island also have the mysterious power of making people unable to explain things in a coherent fashion?
-I’m sorry that Sayid got beat up, but as a viewer, it was totally worth it to have someone finally say something to her about her mother.
-The Ben/Locke scenes were great. Especially the lines “We have a pair of hamsters running on a giant wheel in our underground secret lair,” and “you better hope it can make you another submarine.”
-Dear Lost Producers:
Can we have a whole season of Locke and Ben? Thanks.
-I’m moving all my phones away from the window.
-Sure, I’m interesting in finding out how Locke survived an eight-story fall, but I’m more interested in finding out how his geriatric father gave him a spear that makes Edge’s look lame. I was surprised daddy Locke didn’t at least break that bottle of burbon over his head first.
-I liked the reveal at the end, even if it was telegraphed a little. Unfortuantely, I don’t think they’re going back to Locke and daddy Locke until two weeks from now.
-Say it with me, class: Ben is evil.
