Letting Go of LOST

This is a quick and dirty sketch- I would have spent more time on it but I think I've already wasted enough of my time on LOST. The last thing the internet needs is another rant about LOST, but I have to voice my opinion at least briefly. I am not angry. I am not disappointed. I am INSULTED. I watched LOST because it promised to be a work of..well, not genius, but of competence. Heaven knows that's rare enough these days. So at the end, after all the mysteries, characters arcs, and plot points were established, when the writers decided they didn't need to resolve anything and said "Nothing of that matters- all that matters is friendship and love!", I felt like they were saying to me "Hey you in the audience, you're so stupid that we don't need to work at creating something intelligent. You'll sit through anything. Ha ha!" I admit it- I fell for the long con. After Battlestar Galactica, and now LOST, and the way Dr. Who is going, I think I'll be taking a break from watching television for a while. I'll be watching reruns of "I Love Lucy" and "The Twilight Zone" if you need me.

Stick with the Doctor. I had my doubts about Matt Smith, but this season has been one of the best written seasons since Frank Darabont wrote for ALF.

You know, now that I finished watching Dr. Who, my faith in intelligent television writing is somewhat restored. That really was a terrific finale. I guess I just had it out for Amy Pond ever since she tried to make out with the Doctor. I mean dare she. How very DARE she.
