And second (you thought I wasn’t going to get back there, didn’t you), did I really need these snippets to appear so regularly? Couldn’t they all have been thrown together to make one decent sized segment instead of all these mini-segments? I think so. But, here’s what I’d really like to see: a full episode of Battlestar Galactica that isn’t cut short in order to air deleted scenes or repeatedly promo-ing a movie.
Of course, I was also surprised on Lost. How can you not be surprised watching that show? Frankly though, I’m loving it. I’m just loving it. They’re getting really, really weird with all the backstories now: Claire and Jack last week and Locke and his dad this week, and I think it’s great. No, seriously, it’s fantastic. I can only be so happy with it though because I have faith that the producers actually know where they’re going. I believe that they have a great reason for having all these weird things on the island happen. If they don’t, if they start wandering aimlessly, The X-Files-style, it’ll all fall apart, but I don’t think it’ll happen. If it does go that way, I’m throwing them all in a hatch and not even airlifting in Dharma Project food.
Call me naïve, call me crazy, call me kooky, just don’t call me Ben. What a sick and twisted fellow he is, but Locke wanted to blow the submarine anyway, so I can’t really put that on Ben manipulating him, it was Locke’s idea before he went to see Ben.
To sum up: The Riches could be better, Battlestar Galactica could have a full show’s worth of content, and Lost better have a plan.
