"Lost" Rant

I fucking hate my job right now. I'm stressed. I'm overworked. I'm underpaid. I'm tired. Blah, blah, blah. The point is that I'm also irritable, and I'm lashing out in an attempt to avoid working, or at least until my next appointment comes in.

This is the last season of "Lost". "Lost" has been one of my favorite television series of all time. Just six seasons of mind fuck. Which is great, except when the show is supposed to "end" in May, and we are supposed to get "answers" to our "questions". By my calculations there are probably 9 or 10 episodes left, tops. And so far, I am more confused than ever.

Why do they just keep adding character, after character, and back story after back story? You know what I think? I think they thought the series was going to end two years ago with them getting off the island, but then ABC gave them a godfather deal, and now they had to stretch this thing out even further. I just cannot even fathom how this thing can end and give anyone any satisfaction.

So I guess if my "question" was "How could this get anymore confusing, complex, convoluted and fucked up?", then my question has definitely been "answered". Now, if you will excuse me, I have to go study on the Internets for three hours to prepare myself to watch this week's episode off my DVR.

One of my favorite shows ever...reminds me of the first season of Twin Peaks, without the let down. I'm always like WTF! and then I have to watch it online again the following day and check eonline for the recap and read message boards. Apparently, the characters in the alternate reality (when the plane doesn't crash) will all become aware of each other at some point and from there? Who the f knows. And I can't quite figure out if man in black is really evil or if Jacob was the evil one. I'm thinking Jacob was more evil by going and marking them all as the "chosen" ones and therefore ruining their lives anyways.

Have you tried Flash Forward yet? That's another mind fuck show, with some characters from Lost thrown in....can't wait til that and V come back on...
