I was saving post #1600 hundred for something more significant. Oh, well.
Do posts at the start of a page often get ignored?
108 questions? I have more...
Where does Sawyer get a ring? Dig for diamonds on the island? Steal it? Barter? Poker?
If involved in a carjacking, do you a) call the cops or b) wait for a bus to Brentwood?
If your husband leaves you, do you really not call up the woman who is flying from Australia to hand over her baby? Really?
If Arzt is in front of your car and you could claim that an armed crazy lady forced you to press on the accelerator, wouldn't you run him over just because you could get away with it?
Left alone on the island, setting traps, being constantly attacked, apparently infected with something that frightens everyone, and living off the land... how does Claire stay so purty?
If the Lostaways can figure out that the Japanese guy can speak English within 5", is it possible that his own people haven't figured it out in, like, forever? Of course, their forces include armed guards who blithely let Jack through without even warning their leader that an enraged outsider is entering and a guy who has twice been beat by Kate. I don't think Smoky needs to worry about them.
And what exactly was the point of showing her remove the handcuffs? In TV time, that seemed long...
More Lostworthy questions are more central: why do the sideways characters seem to almost recognize each other? Why are they sort of different, at least initially, before shifting to what appears to be bland normality? And why is Miles the only person affiliated with the island who has a sense of humor? Hurley is sort-of funny, but Miles gets all the actual wit (which amounts to a sharp remark every 2-3 episodes).
Don't ask me why, but my mother is making me Tweet. Says it will be good for my career. So, follow my ramblings, mostly on the film industry, @TVFilmTalk
Jason is excellent with answers.
The handcuff guy is a bit of a mystery; after all these years, why introduce an interesting new character who we don't meet again? Maybe he'll return and have something to do with breaking off their more metaphysical shackles.
And I wonder if Miles should be able to tell if someone is sorta dead...
