My dream episode of Lost

I used to like Lost because of its story. It was intriguing, the way they managed to ratchet up the mystery and suspense with every episode. Anymore though, it's tiresome. Example: "Here are the answers to the mysteries you seek -- but wait, the answers are themselves enigmatic, only providing even more questions! Ha ha!"

LamZ0r.

I still watch the show in a desultory fashion - not because the story is any good, but because I like some of the characters. Unfortunatley, the main characters who get most of the attention are dishwater-dull. I just don't care about Sawyer, Jack or Kate at all - there's not a one of 'em with anything interesting to say, and being sooo broody, and sooo sexy, and sooooo misunderstood gets really old, really fast.

But Hurley and Desmond? LOVE those guys. I've taken to calling people "brother" in Desmond's voice, because it's so nuttily charming. And Hurley? Tell me you wouldn't want to pull up a big plate of nachos and play some Xbox 360 with that guy. Dude.

So here, then, is my dream episode of "Lost".

EXT: JUNGLE: DAY
Hurley: Dude.
Desmond: Brother?
Hurley: Dude!
Desmond: Brother!
Hurley: Dude.
Desmond: Brother.

Really, just that for an hour. I'd be delighted. C'mon "Lost" - let's make it happen.

LOL

I think I'd start watching the show again JUST for that episode.

I agree... definitely my two favorite characters.

I stopped watching it before I got tired of daydreaming about being stranded on an island with Sawyer. :P

Sawyer is boring.

But see, when I stopped watching it he wasn't boring yet. And besides, he didn't really *need* to be interesting. I wasn't actually listening to him, anyway... ...

Still boooooring. Boooooooooooring. Ooh, I'm an angsty bad-boy. Oooh, I have a defense mechanism where I call people insulting names. I'm so selfish, you want to tame me, don't you? You'll be the one to make an honest man out of me, right?

Booooooooooring.

Actually... Maeris is right. He was sort of interesting back when he was the angsty bad boy challenging women to tame him. But he lost all appeal for me when we discovered that he was not, in fact, smarter than the average bear.

I can't abide stupid men.

Actually, taming him is not at all what I had in mind...

Boooooooring! Selfish people make terrible lovers. He'd be a two-pump chump, I guarantee.

You mean "Boooooring (to me)."

The point of having an ensemble cast is so everyone can have their favorite character.

They completely mishandled the whole Jack-Kate-Sawyer thing, but that doesn't make the characters boring or the actors bad. It's bad screenwriting that's holding the bloody knife.

Besides, we all know who the Most Intriguing Character on the Island is. As far as I'm concerned, the rest of the show is just scenery for John Locke. ;)

I totally dig on Locke. Am thus pissed about this week's episode, if it's not just a tease.

But Sawyer remains BOOOORRRRIIIIIINNNNNG.

(if anything that's in this LJ is not my opinion, I'll be sure to point it out. Otherwise, assume it's just my point of view.)

One of my favorite moments to date: Hurley, Desmond, Charlie, and Jin going "camping". You can't beat Korean ghost stories around the fire....

Yah, that was my favorite episode this season. Plenty of "Dude." "Brother?" action there.

I couldn't agree more. More Hurley and Desmond! Less Sawyer, Kate and Jack!

I was quite distraught the other night. I stayed up to watch Lost (against my better judgement, since I have to be at the hospital before 6) and fell asleep halfway through. I woke up at 2 am! I had to look up an online recap to find out that... Okay, what was it I found out, exactly? I'm still not sure.
