LOST 3.09: Much Tattoo About Nothing
Here's what we learned.
- The Chinese on Jack's tattoo translates "he walks amongst us, but he is not one of us".
- Ethan was a surgeon.
- The kids and flight attendant Cindy are alive and living amongst the others with a better life.
- Ben might not walk again.
- If Ethan was a doctor, how did he not manage to kill Charlie when he hung him from a tree?
- What do Jack's other tattoos mean?
- Why didn't Kate and Sawyer bring the outrigger back to camp? They could have at least used it for fishing.
- What happened to Cindy and the kids?
- What were the others there to watch?
- Did they really leave Hydra island because Jack's friends know where it is?
- How does the sheriff know that Jack is lying.
This week is episode 10. They aren't very far along consider Heroes just had episode 17 last night. We've got lots of meaty stories still to come this season. Also, this is my all time favorite blog post title. I'm so clever.
Now, on to business. Jack is so lame. I'm thinking that at some point in the series Jack, Sawyer, and Kate are all going to be taken to task for their power issues. Nobody ever suggests a course of action, they start off at anger and then move quickly to proclamations. Case in point Kate says, "I'm going back for Jack and you can't stop me!" Not only would that be a stupid poorly planned course of action, what's so wrong with, "I'm feeling a bit guilty about leaving Jack, or maybe I just miss him, but do you think we should head back and get him?"
No, just start screaming things out. I would have let the bitch go and hope she died in the process. Good riddance!
Now, back to Jack. What's up with the "tattoo rape" scene? Not only was it slightly disturbing, but even more so because it didn't make sense. She does tattoos, but doesn't want to tattoo him, so he forces her? For what? A tattoo? He certainly didn't understand the significance, if any, the tattoo would have. Nor do we. And it's not that profound.
Now, back to JJ Abrams. Unfortunately, Lost is turning out to be a lot like Alias. Each episode may be good, but even though they say they have a plan, it feels like they're just winging it. Do you think we're ever going to find out why Charlie was hanged and not killed? Maybe, but I doubt it. It's sloppy righting. Lost is no longer a brilliant show. It's just entertainment. Set your expectations on low.
Hand back your gay cards now!
Also, what was the significance of the mark Juliet received?
Now I'm ROFLMAO & my co-workers are looking at me like I should be in the psych ward (giving Hurley & Libby some company).
Love ya Daniel!
