The Universe Has a Way Of Course Correcting ...

Warning: This post may contain spoilers. If this week's
episode of Lost is sitting, unwatched, on your TiVo,
this would be a good time to scroll down to the next post.

If it's 9:00 on Wednesday night, you can bet Mr. ThirtyWhat and I are watchin' Lost. And last night, I was utterly disgusted. Now, I'm not saying I want Charlie dead ... but what I am saying is that I want some closure and a few answers ... not an entirely new, unknown character parachuting in.

Last Wednesday, they had me hook, line and sinker. I mean, the end of last week's episode was phenomenal. Benry telling Juliet he'd see her in a week? Oh yeah, I was so on board.

But an entire Desmond back story just to show us how he met Penny? Common ... the plot line was basically the answer to the running joke, "Why does Desmond call everyone 'Brutha'?" Because he was a brother? Um ... stretch much?

And furthermore, while I'm ranting ... Christianity is based on forgiveness. So I'm to believe that after the monastery caught Desmond nipping at the hootch one time that they fired him? I mean, sure ... they bottled some pricey Jesus juice ... but it wasn't Clos du Mesnil champagne.

On that same note ... last time we talked about Lost, one of the comments mentioned Ms. Hawking, the creepy jeweler who told Desmond that pressing the button was the only great thing he would ever do in his life.

Well, if you looked closely ... she made an appearance last night. This photoshopped nightmare could be seen on Brother Campbell's desk:

Neat? Yes ... but for the love of Sonic Cherry Cokes ... could we just get one mystery solved before we end this season? Oh, and one more thought ... why did Bernard have a Phil Collins tape ... and more importantly what the hell was he playing it on?

Cause you're working
Building a mystery
Holding on and holding it in
Yeah you're working
Building a mystery
And choosing so carefully

    ok, I'm with you here. Of all the unanswered questions and mysteries on the island, I truly don't give a crap why Desmond refers to everyone as "brother". What's next? The root of Hurley's affinity for "Dude"?

    And Kate's dejected girlfriend bit is a little weak too.

    I liked last week's twist about Juliet, because I really didn't see that one coming. I thought she'd been dumped by Ben and the Others.

    So now that we have the new chick (who admittedly we didn't get a geat look at, but at first I thought it was Ana Lucia!), are we going to be subjected to episode after episode of background on her?

    P.s. I just had a little moment here as I had to choose my identity as "other" to post a comment. CREAPY!!!

    *holding ipod and tape*-
    "Where the hell is the eject button??"

    Actually, I didn't think it was that bad of an episode... Although.. parts of it were kinda obvious... When Charlie was first "killed", I knew it was just one of Desmond's visions... And Idiot A. knew it wasn't going to be Penny at the end since the book was Catch 22 in Portugese, and Penny speaks Australian-English.

    Nonetheless... When Charlie and Hurly started arguing about super heroes, I started yelling at the screen "STOP WALKING!!! STOP WALKING!!! DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!"


    Desmond's backstory was stupid... So he was engaged... and then a monk... then met Penny... WHO CARES???

    My question is... Does he know this portugese woman? When I first saw the brown hair, I thought it was his fiancee he left at the alter (well, week before the alter).

    And I SO did not catch Mrs. Bad Paint Job in the photo.. but then again, I wasn't paying attention that much (stupid homework)

    (p.s... I keep meaning to call... again.. stupid homework. I've been trying since Easter!)
