It's not about if he was right or wrong. Desmond was right about a lot of things himself, but I love the guy. It's about the behavior. The events I mentioned in the second paragraph about Locke aren't even from that season, it's the insecure, childish behavior of the guy since we know him.

Also I don't know how much of that Locke would've done without the guidance/manipulation of Ben. If it wasn't for him, nobody would've been on that island again.

Kate
Spoiler:
I always hated Kate, she's a shallow artificial character. Shannon was selfish and stupid and all that, but at least she felt like a real person. Kate is just there because people want to see Evangeline Lilly in her underwear. I agree with everything Lightwing said.

Oh and btw, it's not a love triangle anymore, now it's officially a love square.


Locke
Spoiler:
is awesome, you know nothing.

Kate
Spoiler:

I don't recall one scene of her in her underwear since season 1 (unfortunately). Perhaps I'm mistaken, but points remains the number of times of that happening isn't large.

I can see/understand you not liking her character, but she is not a artificial character, she has quite a deep background story.
Perhaps in this season she is mistakenly portrayed that way, since she ain't revealing much at all, but I suspect that will change with time.

Annoying character, perhaps, shallow artificial one - I disagree.

Kate - Spoiler:
Her backstory was fine, but here ""present"" story has always been a bit annoying.


Lost s5epp8 - Just when its all coming together nicely they chuck a massive curvyball. Really takes a flowchart to fully comprehend the whole universe now :P

Yep this season is the best.

Spoiler:
The only thing that I didn't like is that Jack let her out of the bunker, it is out of his character movement, I think their dialogue right before was perfect, and it was indicating he will _not_ let her out. "will you be able to watch your daughter like that?"
"no mam, but I'm not the president of the united states of america".

24-Spoiler:
hmz..guess so, but on the other hand Jack himself has held quite responsible positions in his time and also good self-sacrificing. If the president knew his history she could have given a good counter argument.
Then again, she didnt. (loved the line a few eppisodes back "With all due respect mame...ask around")

My own slight problem with the eppisode...and this is slight...is that everyone is just way too good with guns. I mean, even a trained soldier would be lucky to jump around the corner and kill someone perfectly within half a second. That takes insane aiming while moving, yet the good guys and bad guys alike are able to do this.
This is only a slight crit though, it would be far worse if it was just one side able to do this and not the other

24 cont'd
Spoiler:

Yes I guess you're right, also the bit of raiding the white house so easily isn't
100% credible, but it is fair enough and it gave options for some nice scenes- a foreign leader IN the white house SLAPPING the president of the united states of america. I'm sure the americans who watched it at that time felt their pride being slapped.

Also this show indeed has some nice quotes(since it brings up some nice issues)
I liked the all conversation few episodes back between Jack and Larry
"they don't follow your rules, Larry"
"the rules is what makes us better, Jack"
"not today"

great season.

Can anyone give a definitive answer about the new few Lost episodes?
When I look at IMDb it says that this week there won't be an episode, and next week there will be two episodes.
On tv.com it says this week there won't be an episode, and next week there will be one episode.
And on the TV channel in Israel broadcasting season 5 three days after it broadcasts in the US, they showed a promo of the next episode and said it'll air on this coming weekend.

Not sure about Israel broadcasting, but you can watch full episodes of Lost on the ABC site the day after it's released in US (which is every Wednesday).

Spectacular Spiderman s2epp5 - That was really fun. Good humour,action and attention to charecters. Too bad if Heroes did an life action epp like that they would whipe out a whole seasons budget in one go :P

Terminator s2epp13 "here by aliens"- Now that was brillent, if quite WTFish. I loved how they incorporated the whole "drone" thing into the plot. (UFO pics that were doing internet rounds about 6 months ago....I wonder if that was some secret arg or premotion )

Heroes - s3epp19 Ok eppisode, loved the bit with the comic book store and mumma Petreli, but the whole Doyle thing was a bit crappy. Shame really, as I found him a good villian earlier.

The Listener 1x01 - Kinda nice yet somewhat mediocre show that's obviously inspired by The Dead Zone.

Kyle XY 3x09 - Spoiler:
Argh. They fooled me like they fooled Cassidy, at least Kyle wasn't as annoying as he could have been.

What kind of an idiot would blame someone on something they did right after they were born? I guess Nicole and Steven would. Seriously, Jessi was just born and they knew it, how stupid are they?! All in all Nicole was a complete asshole this episode.

Another question: Why stop Latnok from repeating the pod experiment? I mean wtf? Would Kyle rather be born as a baby and be an average guy? Yeah right. Latnok are doing a good thing. If they want to stop them at least give a convincing argument as to why.

So it happened, Jessi is the only character left in the show that I care about. Maybe also Foss. But that's it.

Yeah, now it looks like seasons 1-3 were an intro to the real thing.

Buffy Season 5 - Fantastic stuff. Easily the strongest so far. Great villian and best overall plot. Purhapes not as funny as bits of 4, but more consistant in tone. Tad bit of a dues-ex at the end, but still effective. Good music too.

Smallville s8epp15 - That was, like, the shitest tv show I've seen. I mean, theres been some shit ones before, but they really out shat themselfs this time. Almost every charecter choice was forced, contrieved, or completely out of charecter. The premise held no weight or interest to start with because you know it wouldnt last...but even then it managed to pull itself down lower and lower.

Kyle XY - s3epp10 - A good eppisode. But an utterly lousy way to end a series.
Very, very blatent this was never supposed to be a final. Even a season final it dosnt really work as.
Notes on where it would have gone
http://community.abcfamily.go.com/bl...kyle-xy-finale

Terminator s2epp14 "Good Wound" - Together with the epp before it, very strong I thought. Good writting, and lots of plotthreads at once well balanced. Kinda have to pay attention though, sometimes you miss a line on this show and you lose track completely.

Battlestar Galactica -- Series Finale:

WTF doesn't even begin to describe it. I never imagined it would be this godawful. Fak.

Edit: The whole point of the show was to demonstrate how campy the 70's version was, and remake it. Moore took that campy show, made a nice first season, and then in an act that can be destribed as the Mother of all Ironies, created an even cheesier remake.

Indeed.
Its not even a farscape-situation where they had short notice to wrap it up. This looks like no-notice.

Dollhouse s1epp6 - Ok, that was brillent. Its really settled into gear now Great stuff.
5-6 really beat the hell out of the rest of the epps. Probably goes on a break now, or gets canceled -sigh-

Still, lots of new information/questions raised;
Spoiler:

1. More then one dollhouse.

Ok, this was obvious to some extent. If theres one, why not more.
However...whats more important..

2. Dolhouse isnt for money. The money is a means to an end...probably something more sinister

3. Another side? Theres Alpha, the dollhouse org...but now also a double agent AND the FIB guy?
My bets on the double agent are the girl that helps the tech guy. Shes in the right place at the right time.
