More LOST than ever
Last night was the hotly anticipated Season Premiere of Lost, and in true fashion, it raised more questions than it was supposed to answer. Although, sometimes I think that the writers will actually never answer any of our questions and instead will continue to tease us like a Virgin in a low-cut top. However, one website has a list of questions that the producers said will be answered this season. We hope.
That said, they did (kinda) answer a major question during the season opener. We finally found out where the Others live. OK, well kinda. Apparently they live in a Wisteria Lane-type community which would look perfect in any Californian town, only their town happens to be on the Island, in what looks like a huge crater. A town in which they have bookclubs, read Stephen King's Carrie and don't seem to believe in anything supernatural or hokey pokey (which contradicts wildly with the whole ghostly, creepy crap that goes on in Craphole Island).
We were also introduced to a new character, Juliet, who spends the better half of her morning in this peaceful sham of a Utopia, listening to "Downtown" and trying her darndest not to bawl her eyes out. Word on the street is that Juliet will be Jack's love interest for the season (until she drowns in that aquarium or gets blown away by Michael or something....speaking of, will Walt and him ever come back? I loved that kid. He creeped the crap outta me).
As for Kate and Sawyer, its pretty obvious what is going on here. Could she look any cuter in that sundress and could Sawyer be any sweeter by giving her his only fish biscuit? I think it's safe to say that with Jack occupied with Juliet (is she the chick from CSI Miami?), we are gonna get some Team Sawyer Skate action (Skate = the combo of Sawyer and Kate). This I have been waiting for all season. I'm sorry but the two misfits belong together, they understand each other and for Kate, Jack is too much "holier than thou" and cries way, way too much...("Whaaaaaa. Daddy issues. Whaaaaa. Sarah left me. Whaaaaa. Can't save everyone. Whaaaa. Party of Five").
Of course, the questions I have now are: why are they living on the island in a suburban sub division (not too far off from my theory that Club Med is on the other side of the island)? Why was Kate crying when she came back from her surreal breakfast on the beach with Henry Gale (Ben)? Why did Ben lock Juliet in the room with Jack, even though he could have easily saved her? Why is Jack's ex such a bitch (why did she seem to derive pleasure from seeing him suffer)? And, excuse me, what the hell happened to every other frickin person the island such as yum-my Desmond?
Tune into next week, I suppose.
