Lost – ‘The Constant’ – 4.5

  Sometime I envy those people who have the will power to wait the season out and catch it all on DVD. After episodes like last night’s, the wait between installments can seem endless. It must be nice to just sit down and catch them all one after another. Alas, I lack that restraint. That…

Tempus Fugit

Time flies, baby. At least, that’s the first thought I had when we received the non-descript envelope in the mail yesterday. It had come from Colin’s school – the return address marked ‘Early Education.’ Inside, were the enrollment forms for Kindergarten. That gave me pause. Where had the 5 years gone? Granted, he’s not five…

nip/tuck

  I’m getting some work done. To commemorate this Oscar season and celebrate the triumphant return of those starving writers, I’m going all Hollywood on ya’ and getting a nose job. I’m serious. It’s all so scandalously true. On March 17th 2008, I’ll walk in a Q-Bert and walk out who knows what. A Karl…

Lost – ‘Eggtown’ – 4.4

  Before I dive into this week’s analysis, I thought I’d provide a little public service announcement and point you to this week’s edition of Entertainment Weekly which provides a pretty illuminating talk with Lost producers – Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof. Although JJ Abrams created the show, it’s Cuse and Lindelof who have really…

Rocket’s Red Glare

Crash and burn. How much longer must we tune in to witness Rocket’s failure to launch this ill-fated attempt to clear his ‘good name’. As his trusted attorney Rusty Hardin feverishly works to re-plot Rocket’s ever changing trajectory, I’m reminded of this guy who once skipped town and headed North despite his vehement assertions that…

Lost – ‘The Economist’ – 4.3

In what’s becoming a regular feature of these Lost post-mortems, I offer up my latest intel on the post-strike landscape. Here’s what I’m hearing is the definitive plan for the rest of the season. There will be 13 episodes (down from 16 but up from the 8 we would have received had the strike not…

Lost – ‘Confirmed Dead’ – 4.2

Good news. For the last week or so, there have been numerous rumblings from all ends of the Earth that the Writer’s Strike is on the verge of being settled. Many believe that the strike will officially come to an end this weekend – when the Writer’s Guild meets with its members. By Monday morning,…

Shot of Adrenaline

I’ve been franchised, baby. Today I begin writing for Adrenaline Vault where I am featured in today’s post covering the Most Anticipated Games of 2008. You can find my piece on Page 3. Yup, today marks the first day that my inane ramblings have burst forth from The Ed Zone and have found purchase on another…

Lost – ‘The Beginning of the End’ – 4.1

What once was Lost has now been found. How great is it to have our show back – although Lost’s triumphant return is tinged with a touch of melancholy as well know that the Writer’s Strike has effectively sliced this season’s 16 Episode Arc into 8. You’ll recall that last season, producers Damon Lindelof and…
