Ramblings IV

Sunday, January 17th, 2010
  • Been re-watching LOST in anticipation of the final season.  Finished off Season 1, then decided to jump straight to Season 5 presuming these two will be the most relevant to Season 6.  I’m still impressed with how well the time travel was handled in a “Whatever Happened, Happened” sort of way last year.  Biggest hindsight observation from the first season is the all-knowingness that surrounded Locke for the first 18 episodes or so.  The writer in me wonders if the revelation that ended last season was considered early on, abandoned when they mapped out the full arc of the character, and is now being revisited as part of the endgame…
  • Also LOST related:  The Trickshot posted a 4-part series of “Lost Vignettes” during the recent hiatus between chapters, chronicling a time traveler’s attempts to view the final season early.  Check them out here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4.
  • Dinosaurs Were Made Up By The CIA to Discourage Time Travel” is an awesome song title, but the music doesn’t really do it for me.
  • The upcoming movie Hot Tub Time Machine has a pretty cool URL for their website: kicksomepast.com
