Meanwhile, back at our other fandoms....

OOOH, fun idea - color coding!!!

So Lost is on tonight. But before we get all into that, lets take a look at some of the other shows on TV that we should be caring about. Because there are people out there who want us to. And by us (for now), I mean Amanda.

Lets be serious - the judges need to be nicer to Steve Wozniak.

Okay, that was the opposite of serious. Its just funny because I know someone named Steve Wozniak (how did I not know that it was such a common name?). Also because I'm very witty.

Lets go backwards to Monday's episode of Heroes, which I watched approximately three hours ago (because it took two hours for the frakking thing to load...NBC's streaming player SUCKS). Much like the judges on Dancing with the Stars with The Woz, we have been hard on Heroes lately. While this was probably deserved, I think the most recent episode has put me in my place a bit. I found myself genuinely caring about the episode and (most of) the characters, and genuinely surprised by some of the things that they threw at me.


Micah is rebel. I am probably the only person who had not figured that out yet (I forgot about him!), so I thought it was surprising, logical, and generally done well. I liked seeing NGC and Ali Larter in scenes where she wasn't his insane mother.

Speaking of Ali Larter, TWO annoying blondes bit it in this episode! YAY! I didn't hate Tracy, but I was never a fan of their perpetuating Ali Larter's character by giving her FOUR (so far) characters to play. Three down. Aaaaand, my favorite character and the most talented performer on the show Gwen Stefani (that cracked me up) also did not survive the episode. It was what I will call a "reverse Dallas," which I have no complaints about.

Two men and a baby were probably my favorite part of the episode. I felt very bipolar during those scenes, because I was cracking up one second and tearing up the next. It was cool seeing Ando finally use his power as a death ray, rather than just a super charger for other people. I'm still waiting for that part where he and Hiro are enemies. Unless they already wrote themselves out of it and I missed it.

As Josh previously stated to me, Mohinder is officially the dumbest character on the show. Peter used to be in the running, but I thought the part where he whisked mommie dearest up the elevator shaft was pretty cool - not to mention unexpected.

Speaking of Angela Petrelli (sort of), YAY Lockemom! Now both of the crazy/awesome aunts from Pushing Daisies (;.;) have been on this show!


In much more important and rewarding news, the series finale of Battlestar Galactica was on Friday. I was at a friend's house who had a TV which got the SciFi channel, but who would have rather had a root canal than watch BSG. So every time The Princess Bride went to commercial, I pulled up the guide, just happened to stop on SciFi, and watched the tiny, silent, windowed version with bated breath. Then she TiVoed it for me, and I woke up nice and early at 12:30 to watch it.

I was really really pleased. There were a few things that I felt were cop-outs, but in no way do I feel that it "sucked ass." My top ten favorite moments were:

1. Everything after "150,000 years later," especially me realizing that I recognized RDM (I'm a REAL fan!)
2. "You can see them too!?!"
3. Is Cheif Tyrol gonna have to choke a bitch? (Yes)
4. The opera house scenes - CHILLS!
5. Starbuck realizing that the notes in the song were jump coordinates to NuEarth, Looking Glass style!
6. Lee charging into the colony with an army of centurions - now with racing stripes!
7. Admiral.Hoshi. (And president Romo Lampkin!)
8. Roslin's goodbye to Doc Cottle! So funny, so sad!
9. The flashbacks, particularly the first one (the Tigh's and Adama) and the last one (Baltar and Six, talking about the defense mainframe).
10. Caprica and Baltar's happy ending (did NOT expect that!), Adama and Roslin's bittersweet one, and Tyrol's "frak all y'all, I'ma go be the UK!"

I was a little bummed that Starbuck didn't have some deeper purpose, although I suppose it was kind of cool. She just...wasn't that important =\ At first, I was disappointed about Helo not bleeding out like Athena said he would, and then I watched Dollhouse. And then I heard that they were going to kill him, but Tahmoh Penniket didn't like that...and I was disappointed again.

But I still love Paul Ballard. Seriously, watch Dollhouse, and then talk to me about it. Because I'm in love with it. And Paul Ballard.

The Apple-Turtle Conundrum

This is just a bit of BS, but its totally made my night, so here goes.....

SO, in the comments for the previous blog, Tristan said:

"Never been a Family-Guyer myself, but a friend has made it his life's purpose to prove that it is better than LOST (rubbish, imho). I emailed him the link just for the awesome-ness of the coincidence."

Now, I happen to be a huge Family Guy fan. In fact, I have watched seasons 5 and 6 in their entirety in the past three days. However, when reading this comment, I was reminded of an old saying I made up. My response was going to be:

"Family better....than Lost? That's like trying to compare apples and turtles." Apples and turtles was the old line. Upon second thought, I decided that I needed something even crazier to give my statement the punch I wanted it to have. This prompted me to ask Josh and a friend of mine possibly the best question I have ever asked anyone:

"Whats something that's even less like an apple than a turtle?"

Answers included: emus, rocks, a bottle of ear medicine, a semi-retarded racehorse, a Boeing 747, the Geico Gecko, cinnamon toast crunch, and advanced particle physics.

Post your answers in the comments to this blog : what's something that's even less like an apple than a turtle? Best answer will be posted on a blog and mentioned in the podcast, not to mention I will probably quote it forever and ever, amen.

Some Off Week Updates

-First and foremost, tonight is Big O's Heroes Bash. I don't think I will be attending, but I know Josh will, and I know it will be a good time =)

-If the tour of Spring Awakening is coming to your town, GO SEE IT. Unless you're put off by teenagers having sex on stage....or homosexuality....or abortion...or suicide. Or amazing rock music and great acting =D Blake Bashoff is beyond amazing, and I can't wait to gush all over him tomorrow night at the post-show.

-Come to our Sawyer party tomorrow. We've been hyping this show for awhile, so we're pumped about it.

-There's a new poll up on DarkUFO that gives a list of characters, one of which will be killed this season. The list is pretty intesnse, so I would put a spoiler warning on this one.

-There's another poll on E! Online that pits male TV characters against each other. Go vote for the Lost men (or not...I had to vote for Sylar).

-If you're bored, look up "Lost the Sitcom" or "Ben Uncensored"(Part I and Part II) on Youtube. Obviously, there's language on these ones.

-Comment on your blog with your thoughts on these things and others!

Hey all.

I know this is a Lost Blog, but since JJ, and a bunch of other Lost peeps are working on Star Trek I figured it was cool to talk about this here. Also, it's my blog, so there.

The new Star Trek trailer is AMAZING! Every fear I had about that movie is now gone. Which may turn out to be a bad thing, since if I go in thinking it will be the greatest star trek movie ever, and it's not, I'll be very disapointed. However, I find it hard to see how it will not be amazing. It may not be better than The Wrath of Khan, or First Contact, but that would be ok. I love those two movies. But if this one even comes close...oh my goodness.

The trailer site is below. The movie comes out on May 8th, and you can BET there will be a Lostflashbacks episode dedicated to it. Either then, or soon after Season 5 ends.

Here, mom!

I'll be deleting this soon. x.x

Just so you know, the reason that I posted this is because I want that hair clip. =p

-Obviously Not Josh

108 POSTS! =D

WHOO! This is blog #108 - so cool^^;

I've realized that we stopped posting the episodes awhile back, and that's no good. Tonight, we talked about the episode for at least an hour. The other 60% of the show, I can't exactly say the same for. We rewarded our chatters and those of you who will actually listen to the whole frakking thing with some information about the bizzarro episode, among some other crazy things, but it basically turns into a ramblecast.

I do, however, want to hear any and all theories about WHO the baby is. You can hear mine on the show.

Also, has just released two awesome new shirts, which can be seen here and here. I can't decide which one I want...of course, there's also the Looking Glass tee, which I've wanted since season three. But I will definitely be asking for one for my birthday at the end of this month. Or, God forbid, BUYING one with my own money because I will actually have funds that don't go to rent, gas, or groceries.

Here's the show!
