The morning after!

Wow. Even after all the anticipation and obsessing on my part, I forgot just how fun it is to watch a new episode of Lost.

And it was a really great new episode, wasn’t it? Hurley-centric, which is always good, and also appropriately tense, creepy, and heartbreaking. Jorge Garcia’s performance was uniformly excellent, from his last moments of glee at the beach to his devastation at the news of Charlie’s death to his horror and denial when faced with the ghost (or whatever) of Charlie in the future. Save this episode to submit to the Emmy panel, dude.

If your Lost addiction has come rushing back as much as mine has, and waiting another six days for the next episode sounds about as bad as the last nine months have been, I suggest you check out Lost: Missing Pieces at the ABC website. These are the 2-3 minute “mobisodes” (mobile episodes? is that what that is supposed to mean?) that people with Verizon could watch on their cell phones once a week since November. I just got around to watching them because I assumed they would be lame, but most of them are actually cool. I especially liked the one where Ethan introduces himself to Jack, and the ones that allude to what went on with Walt while he was with the Others. I appreciated the entertaining appearances from Dr. Arzt as well. The 13th and final installment isn’t available online yet, but from the description I read, it sounds like a good one. On the island just after the plane crashed, Christian Shephard encourages Vincent to go wake Jack so he can help the wounded…sweet.

Another excellent diversion is this J.J. Abrams speech that a friend recommended to me today (hi, Jess!). It’s very funny and he talks about the issues of mystery and unanswered questions in a way that enlightens his philosophy when it comes to writing the show. Good stuff.

Countdown to Thursday at 9:00!

    Sweet. It’s about time I got recognized for watching something.
