“Lost” Ending: Winner or Loser?

The Interwebz are ablaze today with chatter about last night’s “Lost” series finale. A lot of people are anti, a sizable minority are pro. Me? ... I’ve come to terms with it. I got six—well, five and a half, let’s say—highly enjoyable seasons out of the show, have a ton of indelible TV memories and got to watch the cast ride off into the sunset (kinda literally). None of that is diminished by a finale that failed to provide concrete answers to mysteries I knew wouldn’t be solved anyway. Though “The End” didn’t provide the monumental, soul-cleansing sense of closure I was wishing for, it didn’t diminish or alter anything that came before it. Of all the after-show buzz I’ve waded through, Noel Murray’s exhaustive analysis in The Onion’s AV Club is certainly the most well-thought-out. Give it a read here and see what you think.

This Blog Is Cool; or, Since the Internet Is Super-Literal--Read This Because It Talks About Hurley From “Lost”

This morning, I was pleased to stumble across Jorge Garcia’s blog (via Jezebel). Jorge Garcia plays Hugo/Hurley on “Lost,” so if you don’t watch the show, you may not care. Which, I just, I mean ... not watch “Lost”? What the hell?

If you started watching it but fell behind and are waiting until it’s over so you can watch it all on DVD, you’re excused. That’s fine; people have shit to do. If you’ve never, ever seen it, well then, you either have terrible taste or are a hippie so let’s just accept that we’ll never have a real relationship anyway. Not owning a TV is not an excuse. It’s 2010. iTunes that to your computer. No computer? Go to the library with a pair of headphones and have at it. Find a way, lazy ass.

But the group I really have a problem with are those who say, “Yeah, like I totally watched it but then it got really confusing. Like, a lot of people were saying things and sometimes in different places, so, I like was all, ohmygod I’m really confused. What time is “The Hills” on?” (I don’t know what “The Hills” is but Devin has talked about it in a way that indicates that it’s stupid. I wouldn’t know because I spend my time watching awesome things.)

I have no time for this group. You make bad TV and politics happen. Goodbye.

Everyone else, though, should check out this blog. Jorge seems super funny, nice and self-depricating. Here he is talking about the perfect way to eat a cupcake.

He bakes bread!

And my favorite so far (I just started): Dharma Bears invade his home.

He and a friend also have a new “Lost” podcast called Geronimo Jack’s Beard (hilarious). I haven’t listened to it yet because I’m at work and the computer is so finicky, if I ask it to do two things at once it takes a hit out on a close friend. I lost half my softball team before I figured out the connection.
