A commercial comes on the TV reminding us that Lost is actually going to be on tonight. It would be pretty easy to forget at this point, normally we get one new episode a month. But that one commercial can provide such emotional drama:
Commercial: Tonight on Lost…
Lisa: Oh yeah, that’s right.
Commercial: …an encore presentation of last week’s episode…
Lisa: What the hell? They said 16 new episodes with no repeats.
Commercial: …followed by an all new episode.
Things will be okay as long as I keep threatening to stop watching if they screw up. I said I’d stop if someone didn’t get shot back in December – sure enough, Sun finally shot an “Other”. Last week I said I was giving up if the show ended with Ben being saved and Kate, Sawyer, and Jack still locked up – sure enough, that’s not how it went. I sure don’t want the show to end up like Prison Break, which I’m only watching these days out of spite. Trust me, season 3 will not even be worthy of a download.
