The women are all really good with guns. I like the gun use on Lost in general. They use guns for everything: hijacking, trading prisoners, mediating time travel-related psychological pressure, dealing with tricky buttons that might control the world. They practically use them to stir their tea.
Desmond. Desmond is my number one “Lost” crush. You can’t say he drinks like a sailor because he is one! But he also keeps in shape and runs stadiums. Plus he can time-travel, which lets him act like he can see the future, which is oddly hot.
i loved the episode where hurley found a jack nicholson-in-cuckoo’s-nest-like friend in a mental institution, but then it just turned out that he was crazy and hallucinating. very post-modern.
By season four they openly address how kinky the show is. Kate gets to guard Sawyer, who is a prisoner for some reason I can’t remember, and he’s all like “Ooh you like that Kate!”
Alex on “Lost” is totally super beautiful, but no way she’s 15.
I like Sayid, but having one of the only Middle Eastern characters be an Iraqi torturer seems unfair to the region. Plus, he’s played by an Indian actor who doesn’t look Iraqi at all.
Oversaturation of hot people. This show was unrealistically full of hot people from the get go, but then the writers found a way to keep penning them in. I personally feel wrangled into hot hypnosis against my will. Then they threw in this Paolo guy for like two episodes and I was like, “You just can’t do that.” (He’s from “Love Actually” if anyone remembers.)
Juliet bugs me. She’s way too quietly burdened for a white woman with incessantly perfect brows.
Alex is a “fierce,” unique-lipped woman who would get Tyra Banks sweating in her weave. So why is her boyfriend a 15-year-old nerd straight from the Brady Bunch (yeah I stole that joke from Sawyer)?
Who woulda thought Sawyer would be the comic relief? I love his mean nicknames. I have so much to learn from him. My favorite was when he called Charlie “Jiminy Cricket,” as in, “What’s Jiminy Cricket doing here?”
