7 Days Till LOST


It's been a long strange trip but LOST and it's mysteries are finally coming to the surface this last season. What is that sound whenever the black mist shows up? What happened to Walt? Are Kate and Jack meant to be together? Who is Clare's baby and why was the spiritual forecaster so cryptic about his birth? Why those numbers? Why are all the books on the show like fundamentals of a magic Borges library? Will Saywer take off his shirt?

I am so excited for next Tuesday. I miss a lot of things about not being in Toronto, but one thing that is gonna be weird is I sure wish I could have a "LOST party" with my friends and family who also have watched every episode of this fricking awesome tv show. The pilot episode is probably still in the top ten pilot episodes ever. (others would be ER, 24, Desperate Housewives, How I Met Your Mother, True Blood, Dexter, Arrested Development, and The West Wing)

I really am going to miss being able to talk about each episode with family and friends in person. As it is, we make a lot of long distance phone calls and thank goodness for Skype, right? On a good night I don't have a clue what is going on and I depend on recaps and individual theories to keep up to speed ha ha. We've been waiting for this season forever it feels like...and one thing that is a drag is that the season will be pre-empted by the Olympics. Sure I'm going to be watching the Olympics, I prefer the winter games much more than the summer ones (sorry ancient Greece)...but still...how nasty to have LOST interrupted!

Some LOST fansites I've enjoyed:

1.) The Tail Section
2.) Lost Media
3.) 4 8 15 16 23 42
4.) Lostpedia
5.) Dark UFO
6.) A Theory Of Time Travel

Amen! I can't wait for this FINAL SEASON to start! I swear, throughout the seasons past, I have gotten more questions than answers and I LOVE THAT! Can't wait for February!

Woo-hoo! I cannot wait! I just hope they end it decently!

I'm so looking forward to Lost! And funny you mentioned ER. When I lived in Japan, my parents would send me their old TV Guides and I read about ER, thought it sounded amazing and asked them to tape it for me and send it along. So I watched the first couple of seasons, thanks to them!

I'm a Lost junkie too. I still have never seen the first season - I joined in late via one of those mid-season re-cap shows! So I have relied on Entertainment Weekly's awesome blogger Doc Jensen to keep me informed. You would love his recaps, theories and general blathering on Totally Lost...

I've actually tried to catch up as I'm dossing at home lately as I train as a driving instructor.

I'm still none the wiser.

The hobbit bloke drowned and then some escaped the island and then went back and.....I like surreal but I can't quite fathom all this...

Still..a couple of the birds are nice to watch...;-)
