Did Anyone Else's Heart Stop for A Second?



OH MY GOD! I thought they did it! They Killed Charlie!! I'm largely unspoiled for the show, but I had read interviews with JJ in which he threatened to kill off a major character before year's end. So, when I saw Charlie hanging from that tree I immediately thought of many unflattering adjectives to accompany JJ's name. I can't recall the last time I've been this relieved. Oh, yeah, when Vaughn blew Lauren away. :p

In other news.....

Jack and Kate? ::yawns:: Individually I can handle them, but together borrr-iiiing.

Jack's dad was a real bastard. I'm at a bit of a loss why he feels so much guilt about turning him in. Me? I'd relish doing it. Then again, I'm evil. ;)

Any 'Galaxy Quest' fans? Boone's Red Shirt speech reminded me of Guy's in GQ. And someone finally called Kirk a bad captain!!! :-)

"My other dad, Brian" - Oooooooh, the plot thickens.

"Reject from VH1 has-beens." Hee! Is that anything like participants in the 'Surreal Life'?

Was it just me or do I sense Sawyer and Sayid becoming friends down the road (I'm also sensing some slash being written, but that's another discussion ;). The actors have a nice chemistry together and I'd like to see them talk more and torture each other less. Sawyer's even kept the home fires burning. ;p
  • Current Mood: scared scared
Um, I think we all know the answer to that subject line. My heart is just now beating in rhythm again. Yeah, JJ totally Jossed us. The bastard. God, I love him.
Yeah, I needed defibrallators. Scared me to death.

The stuff with Jack/Kate was pretty boring though.
It seems to be the one thing that has brought the fandom together "Oh my God! They almost killed Charlie!" ;-)
I'm wondering what the metal hatch leads to. Did Locke and that other guy stumble across the French woman's hideout?

P.S. I was aghast that I thought Charlie might be dead until Jack brings him back in a moment that reminded of me of The Abyss just a little.
I couldn't even make out it was a metal hatch, but I assumed that what was what it was. It could be Danielle's hideout. Or, what if it leads to a series of tunnels under the island? Of course, we'd be getting into Initiative territory then. :p

YES! I thought about 'The Abyss' too! I was waiting for Charlie to tell Jack to "Fight damn you! FIGHHHHTTTT!!!". ;-)
Oh yeah. Heart stoppage all the way.

And I think there HAS been Sawyer/Sayid slash written already. Not that I'd *cough* know or anything.

Not that I'd *cough* know or anything.

Um, yeah, because you're much to pure of heart and mind for that. :p

I was torn, torn between screaming "You motherfuckers killed the wee bassplayer" at my tv and mocking (yet again) the crappy medical procedures this show is so fond of. Then when I thought they were actually going to let him stay dead, my heart was broken while my head was thinking "that's not what a hanged person looks like, oh well at least they're not going to bring him back with that lameass chest pounding". Then when Dr. Charlie did bring him back with the lameass chest pounding I was torn between hysterical laughter and exuberant cheering that wee bassplayer was alive. I realize that the number of people who are compelled to critique a staged hanging (me) is significantly smaller than the number who wouldn't even think of it (normal people aka the rest of the world) but still. Perhaps I should take my vacation in Hawai'i and pop over to the LOST stage to offer my services as medical director when Dr. Charlie has to deliver the alien spawn.
Alien spawn? I was thinking more along the lines of demon spawn. ;)

Well, thankfully, I don't know what I hanged person should look like, but even I knew the chest pounding was ridiculous. And, call me crazy, but while Charlie was trying to get his heart going, shouldn't have Kate been doing mouth to mouth? I don't know how holding WBP (wee base player's) hand was going to help.

If you do end up offering your services ;), I want autographs.....and many pictures of Sawyer. ;-)
I went from "he's in the credits; they can't kill him!" to "OMG, they killed the hobbit!" and back again before Charlie recovered. Whew.

I can also see Sayid and Sawyer banding together at some point (no, not like that--outside of fanfic). They've both got a streak of ruthless pragmatism a mile wide.

I literally grew up with my father pointing out to me what a lousy captain Kirk was. He makes the case that anybody who regularly loses his ship to a bunch of children should get booted from the Federation. It took me a while to realize that this is not, in fact, a prevailing view.

Hee. Yes, I think they will discover that under this seething hatred they fester for each other that they have a lot in common. I think it would be interesting to see a *friendship* grow between them.

OK, please tell your father for me that he is a brilliant man. First, his growing Buffy devotion and now this. You are one lucky girl to have a father that 'gets it'. :)
Alas, he did not think too highly of the first few episodes of Farscape. I'm going to have to work on that. He's the reason I got into TNG and Babylon 5 back in the day, after all.
In fairness, the series does get off to a slow start. Rewatching the first five or six eps I realized I had nothing much to say about them. 'DNA Mad Scientist' should intrigue him, but 'A Human reaction' should get him hooked. If not, I take back what I said earlier. ;)
Joss has definitely screwed with all our heads. I bet Fury was just cackling about that over the story table, regaling everyone with stories. I really thought he was gone, even though this other part of my brain was like, "Well, really! He can't be, I mean, the rest of his backstory, damn-it!"

I hate Jack and Kate too. BooooooRING. But, in general, they both rub me the wrong way and strike me as characters whose greatest love is...themselves. So maybe they're perfect for each other after all! :)
Oh, yes, I see Fury's fingerprints all over some of these stories. I'd like to think Charlie is safe now. I mean, he's died already! Then I stop and think of Buffy's words "Hey, I died twice". ::worries::
Perusing the net last night, I found that opinions about Jack and/or Jack and Kate are very derisive. It seems to be either love em/hate em. Me? Yeah, I have to be different and be somewhere in the middle. I hate neither of them (I save that for Shannon ;) and I believe each serves a purpose. It's just that together I see them as rather blah - I'm not sensing any strong romantic chemistry. Besides, shouldn't you be rooting for her to get together with the bad boy? ;)

I really hope Charlie has some repercussions from all that--oxygen-deprivation and smashed sternum. It seems as though his memory has some blanks, though.

Charlie has to have some broken ribs from that pounding, there is no way he couldn't. As for the memory loss, my "theory" is that he was injected with some drug to give him short term memory loss. I don't think "they" would want to take any chances he would repeat what he knew. We don't know for certain that Jack saved Charlie, it could have been the island at work and if this mysterious group knows that was a possibility they would want to ensure Charlie could repeat nothing that he heard or saw.
I find myself warming to Jack. He's definitely not as together as he appeared at first, and that initial togetherness is making a lot more sense now that we've seen some of his life as the adult child of a very domineering alcoholic.

Kate, on the other hand, is still a big pile of meh to me. And while I think the actors have some chemistry, I don't find the idea of a romance between the two characters at all interesting. I've discovered I like ships where the two people complement each other, contribute to each other in some way, and I just don't see that at this point with Jack and Kate.

Ha! Oddly enough, I was just discussing my deep love For "Galaxy Quest" with one of my coworkers yesterday.

Was it just me or do I sense Sawyer and Sayid becoming friends down the road

I can definitely see that happening at some point. I wouldn't be suprised if somewhere down the road there's an episode where they have to work together and depend on each other to survive. And then there will be a lot of slash written about it. ;)
'Galaxy Quest' is one of the most brilliant movies ever made. Everyone who has ever been involved in a fandom needs to sit down and watch it.

Yes, with their shirts off and covered in sweat, of course. ;-)
JJ has truly taken up the mantle from Joss. Cindy and I were screaming at the TV like we were characters in South Park, lol. As for realilty - I've already decided that reality doesn't hold a candle to heart-stopping storytelling :)

As for Kate and Jack - I don't see romantic chemistry but I find them more interesting when they interact with the other characters. Loved Locke's line, "You're full of surprises", when Kate reveals her tracking skills, and loved how he tossed her the knife and knew she'd insist on going with him to look for Charlie and Claire. And I enjoy Jack and Hurley's scenes. Hurley is a perfect counterpart to Jack, the one grounded in reality and practicality.

In other words, the one guy who realizes how royally screwed they are. :p
I thought for one second that they really killed Charlie too. Lucky that Jack didn't listen to Kate! But, is that really how you bring people back??

I think they can certainly become friends too. That could be an interesting relationship/friendship. Heh.
But, is that really how you bring people back??

Only if you want to break some ribs and puncture a lung. :p
