LOST

Game over

Game over

Game of Thrones spoilers within! Hey people, we did it! I mean, I can’t pretend that I have joined you all on an epic eight year long journey to find out who would finally be sitting on the Iron Throne, but it has been a pretty intense ride for me too. I think the fact that I binge watched all eight series in about six weeks means that I’ve a slightly different perspective than the ardent fans who have waited and wondered and sat patiently and theorised and loved and let this show take over their lives.

Trailer Tuesday - Life after LOST

This week only one trailer crossed my path and it was for Emperor. Unfortunately, I just can’t get past the fact that this is Jack! Particularly in the opening scene where it is Jack, in a plane, heading towards an island! LOST really has ruined my life. Emperor

Avoiding spoilers - who is to blame?

Avoiding spoilers - who is to blame?

Last weekend, I wrote up my reaction to the second episode of the latest series of Sherlock (got another post coming on the final episode just finding the time/gathering my thoughts), and prompted this reaction. Thank you for the wonderful SPOILER. GOOD JOB. Ever heard of a spoiler warning? Thankfully, I have a pretty prominent spoiler alert at the very top of the post, so I feel like I did my part in trying to avoid this exact situation.

I should have included a polar bear

I’m currently in the process of sorting out and organising my writing notes. This sounds a lot grander than it really is. When I used to write, I started dozens of notebooks, scribbled on scraps of paper, and created quite a few Word documents. They were saved all over the place, both in terms of hard drives, and boxes. When I started writing again, I began a new system, and now it’s all a bit messed up.

The obligatory LOST post

Only read this if you a) care and b) have seen the LOST finale. Let’s begin with something positive. The two things that made the finale worth watching: Miles: “I don’t believe in many things, but I believe in duct tape.” The scene with Hurley asking Ben for help. Love Ben. Now, I’m afraid, the rest of the post will be entirely negative, because… let’s face it. It sucked.

A LOST app please

A LOST app please

This week’s episode of LOST (don’t worry, no spoilers here) wasn’t the rip-roaring ride we’ve had recently with Richard and Desmond. It was good, but it was more of a transitional piece to get all the characters in the right place for whatever is to come in the final episodes. That is fine by me. Sometimes you need a break from the mind-blowing awesomeness - a breather to gather your thoughts.

Lost in time

After watching the latest episode of LOST (don’t worry, no spoilers here), Mr C and I got into one of those conversations that goes something like - “Was Mr Widmore with Dharma? No, he wasn’t there then. Yes he was, he just was with the others instead. But I thought he was in the army. He had an army uniform. But it wasn’t his. When was that? Would he recognise Locke?

Being human can be fun

I remember writing a piece for The BBC Blog when Being Human got recommissioned for BBC Three. At the time, I said: Personally, I couldn’t get through the first episode, but it was even successful on the iPlayer. The first two episodes were the most watched at the time, and the website has seen a soar in hits. Well, as it turns out, they have been repeating the first season, presumably in preparation for the second to begin soon.

HD-ache

HD-ache

With iTunes now starting to roll out HD versions of some TV shows, alongside the standard def versions, we had to investigate. Given the option, it feels wrong to buy a lesser quality version, even if it is slightly more expensive to do so. LOST returned to our screens recently, and by screens, I mean monitors playing the HD show with the help of an Apple remote. I wasn’t sure that the higher quality made that much difference, but about halfway through the second episode, I suddenly saw it.

Impatience? Not a virtue

Impatience? Not a virtue

I think I’ve told you about how I read the entire first season of LOST through transcripts before it was aired in the UK. This wasn’t the cleverest thing for me to do, because I was discussing each episode with a colleague of mine and suddenly started getting confused with what I had seen and what I had read. I stopped watching, but kept up the pretence of talking about the show without actually saying anything.
