Shafted

Posted on Wednesday, May 25th, 2005

Dave!Okay, I just sat through two hours of Lost expecting that at least one small something would be solved or explained. Of course, nothing was, and now I want my two hours back. I think this was about the most lame, disappointing, piece of shit finale ever aired on television. Note to writers and producers: you can't just string people along forever with no pay-off. So where was my f#@%ing pay-off? If they're not going to explain anything at season's end... the most important episode of the entire year... does that mean they never plan on it at all? Will they just keep going and going until they're cancelled, and then leave everybody hanging? Whoopee! It's a hole! THAT'S what I waited all season for? I mean, who cares?

Amazing how Lost can go from being one of the best shows on television to one of the absolute worst. Of course, why should I be surprised? J.J. Abrams f#@%ed up Alias, so I guess it was only a matter of time before he destroyed Lost as well. He has a real talent for starting out with something mind-boggling cool, then letting it degrade to utter shit.

And speaking of Alias... what started out as a slightly promising fourth season (after a disastrous third season)... quickly slid into something far, far worse. Now we've got big red balls and Night of the Living Dead zombies? WTF? And sorry, but no, the little plot twist at the end does NOT make up for what a crap season this turned out to be. Unless something really spectacular happens in the season-opener of these shows, I'm done with them both.

Thankfully there was Veronica Mars this year with a REAL pay-off for the fans at the finale. Otherwise, I might have just given up on television entirely.

  1. Dave: you’re wa-a-y too involved with your television. I’m concerned about you dude.

    Also, where do you get your movie quotes? Because… for some reason, I don’t see you watching Monsters Inc…

  2. Brandon says:

    I almost started watching both of those shows. I’m glad that I didn’t because what you just described would have frustrated me to no end. Thank god for Veronica Mars (for you) and the Gilmore Girls (for me).

  3. Dave2 says:

    I am a huge animation fan, and own every Disney & Pixar film on DVD… including Monsters Inc., which I loved.

    The movie quotes all come from memory, though I do confirm that I have remembered them correctly by looking them up on IMDB. Those that are not listed on IMDB, I look up by watching the DVD out of my movie collection.

  4. TheMike says:

    I thought there was one extremely cool thing about the finale. I didn’t want the 4 on the boat to find their saviors. Bringing “the others” out to snatch “the boy” when everyone assumed, including me, that they would be coming after Clair’s boy was a brilliant misdirection.

  5. Sayuri says:

    WHY have we not got ‘Lost’ in the UK yet?? I want to be disppointed too. Or at least have the chance to be disappointed.

  6. delmer says:

    I thought the car accident at the end of Alias was pretty good. The zombies I could do with out.

  7. Troy says:

    If you hate things being left up in the air never ever ever go out and buy (or rent or download) all of the Twin Peaks episodes. The final episode of the series left so many loose ends I thought I was going to cry. I think I actually hated David Lynch for a couple of days because of it. I still have mixed feelings about that series. I love it, but I hate that it was never resolved.

  8. Dave2 says:

    That’s actually a good example… though, in his defense, J.J. Abrams did know that Lost would be back for another season. I am hopeful that if it were questionable as to whether or not Lost was coming back, he would have answered a few questions.

    Twin Peaks is a long-time favorite. The crazy thing is that Lynch had an opportunity to finish up all the loose ends in “Fire Walk With Me” – The Twins Peaks Movie – and inexplicably decided to do a prequel instead. I’m not mad at Lynch for ending with a cliffhanger… he didn’t know for sure they would be cancelled… but I am pretty upset he didn’t finish up the story when he had the chance.

    I am still hopeful that one day Lynch will get everybody together again and let us know what happened… either in a mini-series, direct-to-video-film, or whatever.

  9. M Dawg says:

    hey, i know i know this is late but you know im bored and reading archived dave goodness, but the movie is actually scary movie 3 not scream 3, man scary movie 3 was about hte funniest thing ever when i first saw it, most def the best of the scary movies

  10. Dave2 says:

    Ah! You are right! I get those titles confused!

    All fixed, thanks!
