At 10:04 last night I realized the atrocity that was the LOST finale wasn't going to end at a decent time.
At 10:26 it occurred to me that I was hoping the last season would tie up loose ends and leave me satisfied, but that the chances were good that those fucking writers- having made their tons of money and network bones- would probably not even care how the series ended.
It reminds me of that scene in Last Tango in Paris...without the courtesy of butter.
First off we get to see the mysterious and powerful Jacob who also happens to be the dead ex-junky, ex-abusive husband from Dexter. Bad move LOST, reminding the viewers of a better series.
The writing was clumsy. The suspense was cheap. And would someone please tell those fucking writers that revealing an open box at an angle so the audience can't see isn't slick. It's a rookie move.
Jack wants to set things right because he loves Kate.
Juliet backstabs Sawyer once again because he looked at Kate.
Gosh, the writers loves them some triangle.
I'm trying to think of my favorite horrendous part from last night. Was it when our heroes decided that while killing a kid who grows up to be a murderous psychopath is wrong, killing the poor Dharma redshirts who were doing their jobs was fine and dandy?
Was it when we learned where Hurley got his stupid guitar case? Everyone I know was chomping at the proverbial for the writers to explain that one.
Was it when Ben turned into a broken little woobie because the writers are trying to make him sympathetic?
Nope. I nominate the following scene: Sawyer asked Jack if they can talk for five minutes. Jack replied, "No...My close friend Sayid is bleeding from a gutshot and I should at least apply pressure and pretend to be a doctor."
Jack's reply was in my fevered imagination. His real response was to agree. Then the two of them proceeded to kick the shit out of each other in a really ineffectual fight scene. The writers loves them some torture porn.
Sad to say, the only moment Juliet and Sawyer generated any chemistry in their entire run as a couple was in the moments at the well. Which was a total ripoff of Cliffhanger or Ace Ventura- take your everloving pick.
One positive was I finally remembered where that chick who captured Sayid was from. Hello, Gaia of Rome. Bad move, LOST, reminding me of a better series.
What say the powers that be yank the last season of LOST and reward it to the makers of Rome?
