Every once in awhile when I'm watching "Lost", I am momentarily taken out of the show and it's like I'm watching it for the first time. And that's when I realize that everything that is being said and everything that is going on is insane.
I love the show. I am completely into it. But I wonder: who is watching it? Are there really 15 million geniuses out there? Because you can't watch it casually. I am pretty hardcore, and I have no idea what the fuck is going on. I have to go on lostpedia immediately after every episode.
We are rapidly closing in on the end here, people. By my Daniel Faraday like calculations, there are only 17 episodes left. I guess I thought we'd be getting some real answers by now. Then again, we kinda are getting answers, but they're the kind of answers that then pose a million more questions.
Every once in awhile, it's good to take a step back and remember all of the shit that needs explanation. I've done this before, and it's time to do it again. So let's just go through a quick list of stuff that still makes no sense:
-The importance of Walt/why did the others want him so bad?
-(Seinfeld voice) what's the deal with Richard? We get the time travel thing, but why isn't this dude aging?
-what's the deal with Jacob?
-what does Jack's dad have to do with everything and is he Jacob and why?
-is there a connection between Jack's dad coming to the island in a coffin and Locke coming in a coffin?
-what happened to Claire?
-is this just a good ol' fashioned time traveling ghost story?
-how come a submarine can go to and from the island, but to "get back" there they had to go on a plane that was magically going to crash there?
-why were some of the people "lifted" off the plane that eloise told them to go on?
-uh, how did Locke come back from the dead? is Locke even Locke?
-what's with the temple, the heiroglyphics, and that old foot statue?
-here's a random one: wouldn't chang be a little more respective to someone telling him that he's from the future when he's been doing experiments with time travel?
-how is Locke talking to the island?
-what's up with those new people that crashed on the island and seem angry?
-who are the "teams" and their motives, i.e. the dudes who picked up miles in the van and said they were on the good team.
Really? They're really going to clear all this up? I'm hopeful.
