L O S T spoilers...  
Behind the cut will be incoherent ramblings on the Season premiere of L O S T :

L O S T was at least as spectacular as I anticipated. The local news, Dateline and Jimmy Kimmel all had spots about L O S T afterward, meaning I was in the L O S T mindset from 9pm-12:45am. The only reason I ever got into L O S T was Jimmy Kimmel's hilarious Season 2 premiere episode. His fanboying is contagious. It's the middle of the night so my thoughts are a bit jumbled, but a specific element I appreciated was Kate and Jack (both of whom irritate me but are neccesary to the plot) relying on a pen (for escape and rescue) in contrast to the parallel moment in Season 1 when Boone was meant to look foolish fetching a pen for emergency medical help. I think all of the parallel storylines were spot on. Kate and Sawyer in the elevator was pretty perfect as was the scene with Sun and Jin dealing with security. It was interesting to see Jack's role reversed with Rose on the plane (he being the nervous flyer this time) and with Locke in the airport. Man of Science, Man of Faith REDUX!

I loved getting inside the temple and being introduced to new characters. I noticed that the translating wasn't going both ways from the first interaction and I LOVED the comment about English tasting terrible on his tongue.


Sayid died? Oh wait, he didn't? I really didn't think he would but damn! That was close. Or maybe he did die and is now inhabited by Jacob... There was alot of role reversal in this episode but the climax of it for me was seeing Richard Alpert pwn'd by "Locke" who is of course inhabited by "Jacob's Nemesis/the man in black"! My demigod is not supposed to go down like that! (I am looking forward to a flashback involving him in chains though...)

The Lucas post totally made my day. Thanks!

You are most welcome. When I initially read the news I was so inspired I felt I needed to spread the word everywhere possible.

Lost was SO epic! I still haven't wrote my review yet - all the thoughts haven't settled down enough yet, lol. It was great.

Sayid and his "death" had me on an emotional roller coaster! I really wasn't sure what to expect and then I was like "oh no, he's dead!" Then he shocks me by sitting up and asking "what happened?" Anyone else notice that his voice sounded very different? Some are saying that must be a sign that something else overtook his body. I didn't notice it at first, so I re-watched that part online. Either Naveen's natural English accent came through by mistake (there wasn't even a hint of Sayid's accent) or somene else is in there with Sayid.

Oh, and Richard Alpert should never be pwnd by anyone! I thought he was un-pwnable! We need to see super cool immortal badass Richard again really soon.

During the Sayid part I kept thinking "Oh lord, Jess must had been a mess during this!" I finally joined the L O S T communities on LJ. I resisted for ages but I am going to annoy the hell out of everyone in the real world (aside from the guy who works at Trader Joe's who I geek out with) if I don't have an outlet for my obsessing.

Nngh. Richard Alpert in chains? We need to see that backstory...

Oh yes, I was a total mess during that whole episode! I thought, "Man, this character gave them such positive reviews at the start and now he's killed off?" (tons of reviews said how awesome the show was to have an Iraqi character). Thank goodness Sayid is sticking around! Which Lost comms did you join? I'm a member of lost_tv.

Oh heck yes! I hear rumors we will see a Richard backstory epi. We really need that.

I joined that community as well as the lost_eps one and another which name I forget.

I'm pretty sure that none of the Oceanic 6 will really die. Hm. L O S T is such a great show. I have been nerding out in real life waaay too much over this.
