This week's episode of Lost - which featured the sideways-world (OtherWorld? AlternaWorld?) story of John Locke - was awesome, but still. I'm a little bit worried about this whole alternate reality - if that is, in fact, what it is - thing. I mean, is this all going to turn out like that horrible Gwyneth Paltrow movie that had alternate parallel realities where she had different haircuts? They're not going to bring Gwyneth into this, are they? Because, seriously.
I'll reserve judgment for now, though, because holy Smoke Monster was this episode head-burstingly fantastic. Mock Locke and Sawyer, trading barbs! Creepy little kids! Richard with smeared eyeliner, scared out of his pants! BENJAMIN LINUS AS A HISTORY TEACHER!
I've been sick. Like, Island-infection-dip-me-in-the-Temple-hot-tub sick. So sick that I've barely been able to raise my head to slurp my Benylin DM, but not so sick that I couldn't watch Lost. And I'll say this: Lost makes a little more sense when you're hopped up on meds. Not enough to be comprehensible, but still. Every little bit helps.
Anyway. Seeing as we watch Lost every week, and further seeing as we are always totally confused by it, we though that we might bring our confusion here, to chat about, just as we might do if we had actual real relationships with you people and, you know, hung out. So, like, not a recap - if I could follow things closely enough to produce a recap, I wouldn't be this confused - I think - but more of a discursive WTF, a sharing of the things that are confounding us, an airing of our grievances concerning too much Kate/not enough Sawyer/will Jack stop grimacing already, etc.
(Spoilers ahoy, if you haven't watched the first two weeks' episodes)
