An annoying thing is that almost always DVD with Hebrew subtitles has a "biblical" Hebrew font. They could use a nice font (like Airal) for the Hebrew like they do for all other languages but Nooo if it's Hebrew then it should be a biblical font

But the thing I really don't get is why Portuguese which is a top 10 language doesn't came in the default European version of all DVDs

Edit:

Heehee... I've more than 5000 posts and didn't notice!! That was fast...

Prison Break ~ Fantastic as always. Surely entering the End-game now.
I think they write this show twice.
Once normaly, then they get people to read and make predictions, then they re-write it again to avoid them

I mean, I was sure...
Spoiler:
The president was going to be shot dead just as she was annoucing their pardon


24 ~ Hay, getting much better I like this season a lot more now the family angle has been dropped. The charecters in the white house are very well played.

KyleXY ~ Was good indeed.I saw the Spoiler:
clone angle
comeing a mile off, but at least they didnt insist on spelling it out.

Lost 3x11 - Another awesome Lost episode.
Spoiler:
I can't say I feel sorry for Ms. Clue.


edit - one question: Spoiler:
How were the flashbacks parallel to what happened in the island? I still didn't find the connection.


edit2
Spoiler:
I just noticed the fact that this is the second time Locke blew up a DHARMA station because he was stupid

Indeed

Spoiler:

Obviously, it was teaching him about forgiveness, and the cat, of course.

Not very deeply linked, but that was it I think.

Great eppisode again.
Even dispite Locke's stupidity we got a lot of information and confirmation.

The Others arnt from Dhama, and they existed before. (purhapes from the Black Rock even?). There was a war on the island, and the fact they have a submarine. (I knew it!).


One thing though;
You know, if people just communicated better;
"Hay, Locke, we found this C4 all over the building...what on earth do you think that could be for?"
"I dunno, but look at this cheese game with secret commands..."

ect

Good point.

Spoiler:

Still a fair amount of tunnels about, as well as, I suspect, a bigger facility under the monitering station

Get Lost S1 DVD. Its the American Version Region 1 with an extra DVD. Already rewatch the pilot (part 1 and 2) and also see the documentary of the first part. Its good the documentary thing and sometimes they switch the episode with "making the scenes" stuffs. Also its good to know more about the show and characters.

Spoiler:
LOL, I liked to know Jake was to be dead in the first episode but instead they kill the air plane pilot. Yes, that sequence with the pilot dead in the tree was to be jake
Its amazing how this people change the things without problems.

You know the weird thing is, when I first saw Lost pilots for the first time, I did think he was going to die
I have no idea why, either.

Stargate ~ Pretty good "ending". Nice story concept, well played out. Ending seemed very rushed though, and the very last seen was just a tad too predictable.
Still, I look forward to Stargate: Continium on dvd later this year

I watched Lost 3x12 again:
Spoiler:
Several things:
  • I saw Jack being Claire's half brother way back
  • Is it just me or did the island's SWAT team (kate+locke+sayid+frenchchick) went way too close to the sonar emitters thingies *after* they knew what they were? STAY BACK, idiots!
  • Locke is being extra impulsive lately. I like that.
  • The ending was horrible; not horrible as in bad, but horrible as in horrifying to watch. Jack looked like a tamed dog to his master Tom.
  • Claire already experience a precog once, so it probably wasn't that shocking to her.

Spoiler:

Nope, your not alone, I thought they were far too close as well.
Also, you would have thought the first thing they would do would be to chuck a rock or something at some stage. (at first I thought they were Telsa coils). They were more original then that, however

Also, I still half suspect it might be Claire thats going to die, and Desmond has being easy on Charlie by saying it was him.
I mean, why did he shot the birds out of the way ? Charly wasnt anywhere near them.

As for Jack..thats a great ending, it means one of two things;
a) The Others know they are there, and its part of a set-up/trick for them. Purhapes Jack saw it was a way to get them to stop careing about him.
or
b) The Others have actualy done the sensible thing and explained they are saving the world, and now jack is helping

Either way, the status-quo of unknowledge is hard to maintain.

Lost 312. Awesome. Simply great.

Spoiler:
I was really mad at Rossaueu for interrupting the russian fellow in his very revealing speech. I was like "This better be important". Luckily, it was quite cool.

The episode with Christian+ana-lucia, kinda made me think about Jacks other unknown family, but I was still surprised by Claire being his sister.

Oh, and The List. Remember that they said it's "Jacob's List"? So that would make him the leader of The Others, and possible a villain (or hero). My real name is Jacob, so it just seemed quite cool to be the villian of Lost

hmm,
Spoiler:
"God loves you as he loved Jacob" was in that brainwash room.
"Jacob's List" somehow reminds me of "Schindler's List". Dunno why. Can there be a connection?
I was for some reason sure "HIM" was Alvar Hanso.

"The John Locke I know was para-" was Russian Fellow's last words before French Chick interrupted him. Para what? Para WHAT damn it?!

"You are not capable of understanding because you are not on the list" - wtf? I mean, seriously? What list can there possibly be that if you're not on it you won't be able to understand a certain thing?
The only possibility I can think of is that the people on the list belong to a "higher dimension" or something, but that's probably not it.

a) Its a list of people with high IQs, and the explanation really is so mega complex that only those can understand it.
or
b) Its a list of people with gay experiences, which is essential for understanding how their community works.
