Me, too.  Love me some Kyle Chandler.  I had totally forgotten that I used to have one of those Mattel electronic football games until I saw the kid playing with it in the movie -- I got all geeky and jumped up and down and said "I had one of those!"  (except I had the green one...)   Used to play it on the bus when we had a long trip for an away ballgame.  Fun times.

So I went to see J.J. Abrams' new movie out now...  Super 8

The alien in the movie makes Smoke Monster noises.  Kinda cool to hear that again.  Just thought you ought to know.  LOL.

Nobody around but crickets anymore? Awww, man! 

I'm having Lost withdrawal pangs.  If I wasn't so cheap I'd buy the DVDs.  I keep hoping somebody will give them to me for some holiday but Christmas and birthday AND Mother's Day have come and gone and still no DVDs.  Dang it.

LostFromTheStart, congrats on the grandkid, but you're getting screwed over if you're the only one who has to have a last name attached to "grandpa."  When I was a kid, BOTH sets of grandparents had to have the last name added on.  Maybe it's just a southern thing...

Goodness gracious, but it's been a long time!  Anyone still here?

Just had to post after watching the season finale of "Chuck" -- there was a nod to "Lost" in there!  After Sarah got zapped by the whatever-you-call-it-doomsday-weapon-gun, she fell over and started bleeding from the nose!  And then immediately after that, they did a "Four Days Earlier..." scroll on the screen.  I swear, for a second there I thought Sarah was gonna whisper to Chuck that she wasn't allowed to have chocolate...

Saw Sawyer on "Community" last week.  I hadn't realized how much I miss him...  *sigh*  Luuuvvv that drawl...

We never see in the alternative time line Aaron being born. 

Huh?   ???  I did...  I'm confused...

True.  I forgot that.  Whatever would I do without you?   ;)

I'm the one Luddite who voted "why podcast."  I'm not even sure I know what one is.  Sounds like some kind of bean you use for fishing bait...   ;D

But I'd re-watch!

Copier machines that continually jam... during the last week of school when God and everybody is trying to make a bajillion copies...

... and when somebody walks through the room and says "I didn't have any trouble with it earlier!" thus implying that you are incapable of making a bleepin' copy...

Well, we don't really know what happened with Jughead, do we?  I mean, for "canon-sure."     ???  It sorta looked like there was some kind of explosion that left a pit with Juliet at the bottom, but I'm thinking that kind of bomb should've left a... um... bigger pit.   :D

I am writing a new ending to this

A new ending to "Lost"?  Awesome!  If you need any expository-dialogue help, let me know... IAJ says I'm good at it.   ;)  LOL!

Darlton would say you just imagined it.   :D

Pay no attention to the baby and the psychic... nothing to see here... move along now...  shoo!  shoo!  Stop asking pesky questions for which there are no answers!   ;D

The whole "he HAS to raised by you" thing... the only thing I can come up with for that is that maybe originally it was going to be a way to encourage Claire to stay with Aaron rather than leaving him lying in the jungle and wandering away to be with Christian/MIB.  Or maybe to encourage Claire to finally decide to come with Sawyer and Kate on the Ajira plane to leave the island for good.  But neither of those things really were tied into that "he HAS to be raised by you" thing at the time they happened, so... *shrug*  I can only assume it was one of those myriad threads that just got dropped before they had actually decided what the "mystique" of the island was, and they never needed to take it up again.

It's like somebody saying that they love chocolate, but think chocolate cake sucks.

LOL!   How's this -- I loved the chocolate, and I loved the chocolate cake.  I just wish mine had had more icing on it.   ;D  (I wanna lick the bowl and the beaters!)

I thought of a great line that Jacob could've had, that would've explained some things, and it would've only taken about ten or twenty seconds... while he was explaining stuff to Jack, for example (or maybe when he was talking to all the Candidates, or whatever...) he could've said something like "This island is hidden in a sense, but people still keep stumbling onto it, like your airplane.  You will have to deal with that, as I did.  When the Egyptians came, they did not understand that I had set things up so that women could not bear children, because I did not want large societies to grow here.  So, poor children, they built this big statue to one of their gods, hoping to fix things.  But some things can't be fixed, Jack.  Some things are necessary to protect the Light.  Now it will be up to you to decide which things." 

MIB maybe could've said a line to Richard back when he told him this was Richard's last chance or whatever:  "You know, Richard, I asked John Locke to help me a long time ago, back when he came to the cabin.  The only way he was able to help me was to die.  It doesn't have to be that way for you, Richard." 

Anyway, obviously those are just total fantasy that I made up so no need to nit-pick whether those ideas are "correct" or not, but I'm just giving an example of how they could've answered some stuff.  It could've been done -- it wasn't impossible.  It would've been icing -- more icing on an already-good chocolate cake.  To me that wouldn't have felt like hand-holding, but I know there are lots of opinions on that.
