on island time

all right, so this episode was not incredibly shocking, complex or freaky… but heck, i sure enjoyed it! was it not good to get back to comic, character-focused lost? sawyer easing tense situations with his quips and quick wit (eyeliner, anyone?), wandering aimlessly around the island, some good old fashioned romance: lafleur had it all!

additionally i think  josh holloway could have chemistry with a stump. (hope for me yet?) no offense to elizabeth mitchell or anything, but the man’s got talent. and abs.

FOCUS, BLOG! NO ONE WANTS TO READ ABOUT YOUR FEELINGS FOR JOSH HOLLOWAY!

errrrneway… i was talking to one k cons during this episode and we both decided that we quite like the di. we like it so much, in fact, that we could see a sitcom spin-off in the works: “the di” ; “on island time” ; “dharma daze.” i can see it now:

LAFLEUR, the Dharma Initiative’s head of secuity, gets easily annoyed with all the “hippie nutjobs” that make up the DI. But that’s probably because he’s from the future! Hilarity ensues with wacky scientist DANIEL, psychic medium MILES, sexy mecanic JULIET and all the other madcap characters that make up the DI. Life’s not always a beach — even if you DO live on a tropical island!

(a new 30 minute comedy coming this fall after samantha who)

seriously, though. lovin’ it. some were not fans of the season 2 dharma lore, but i’ve loved it since the first glimpse of the swan symbol. but i mostly appreciated this episode because so many gaps are being filled in; remember three seasons ago, asking “who are the others?” now here they are. they have rules! and treaties! and the natives of the island like to take their dead bodies!

oh yeah. that was weird. puts a little damper on the whole “happy episode” theme we have going. this was probably the biggest reveal for me (besides the shot of the intact statue — screencap tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!). why must the bodies be buried? what do the natives do with reanimated corpses? and for that matter, why are they not harmed by the SONIC FENCE OF DOOOOOM? i’m beginning to think that these natives are not true corporeal beings. but from whence they came?! and who is truly a “native” out of richard’s people? to be a native, do you have to be born on the island? or are you initiated via the smoke monster’s brainwashing? ben is not immune to the fence (right?) so that means that he is not one of the converted?

also, what must have occurred to ignite the violence between dharma and the hostiles so that children in school were traine to hide under their desks? (“through the looking glass)

WHO ARE THESE DARN HOSTILES, ANYWAY?!

WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN YOUNG BEN GETS TO THE ISLAND? HOW MANY YEARS FROM 1974 IS THAT? WHAT ABOUT THE PURGE?

  1. First of all, I quite enjoy reading your feelings for Josh Holloway, because it just reaffirms that I am clearly not the only one thinking along the same lines…
    And I want more and more Richie in my LOST life, who are these others like him?
    Also, where was Daniel when they did their bizarre flash back/forward in DI life? They show Miles, Jin, Juliet and Sawyer…but where is my physicist?

  2. I’ve been waiting for that statue screencap, because I have all kinda thoughts about it and I can’t wait to hear yours.
