Gathering Moss

By now, everyone has heard the INCREDIBLY SHOCKING NEWS that the Patriots scored NFL bad boy, Randy Moss, for a 4th Round draft pick this past weekend. ESPN’s Sports Guy, Bill Simmons, has a great piece that touches on the weekend’s festivities and spotlights the five possible explanations for Belichick’s gambit. It’s a great read and…

Lost – ‘D.O.C.’ – 3.18

  In past seasons, a Jin/Sun flashback episode would have served as backbone to a stand-alone episode where the show takes a breather from the myth building and spends an hour on developing character. But that was all before we discovered Sun was pregnant and given The Others pre-disposition towards body snatching Baby Mommas, a…

Lost – ‘Catch-22’ – 3.17

  I’m a little behind so I am going to catch up in two quick posts. Catch-22 was Desmond-centric and while not as stellar as the mind-bender ‘Flashes Before Your Eyes’ it still offered up enough little details to keep me interested the whole way through. Besides, any episode that begins with Charlie getting an…

Hanging Out

  Well, what to your wandering eyes should appear but a Blog post on Ed’s website with no reference to Lost there. Yes, it’s true, I have a life outside of the boob tube. Hey, to be fair, there’s a limited number of television shows that I watch (I can count ’em all on one hand)…

Lost – ‘One of Us’ – 3.16

A few weeks back, I raged against the machine that keeps grinding out the same old tired complaint – Lost never gives us answers. A quick run through the last few episodes has answered plenty. Hell, even the Nikki-Paulo episode provided Sun with answers to her Season 2 kidnapping. The point is – these answers…

The First Rule of Fight Club… SMASH!!!

Aint it Cool News has been running rumors which have just been confirmed by a piece in Variety earlier today. Edward Norton has been cast as Bruce Banner in the forthcoming Hulk sequel. These comic flicks just keep impressing with their casting. I’ve already gushed about the way The Dark Knight is coming together and…

Lost – ‘Left Behind’ – 3.15

  I’m sort of divided on this episode. While I enjoyed the island developments, the flashbacks left me cold. In fact, Kate’s last few flashbacks have grown tiresome. It might have something to do with the fact that as we parse through the details of “What Kate Did” we learn that it really isn’t THAT…

Lost – ‘Expose’ – 3.14

  I imagine, much like Nikki and Paulo’s sudden appearance, this episode divided viewers into the Love it or Hate it camps – or Front Section/Tail Section if you’re looking for a Lost-themed euphemism. Me? I LOVED It. This was a clever stand-alone hour that worked on numerous levels. First and foremost, it was Lost’s…
