24 So I guess everyone watched the last of 24. I thought it was very good last night. No happy ending but at least Jack is alive, even though exiled and the Russians and US after him. Not too bad. lol It was sad not being able to watch previews of the upcoming shows. Hate to see the program end. Jack is one tough cookie, isn't he? If they do make a movie I assume they will pick up on the ending of the tv series. Will be interesting to see the old President's recovery from his self inflicted wound and whether he will be brain damaged or not. I'm sure whatever brain is left will be as devious as the undamaged one. He is one crafty, mean, liar isn't he? And no qualms about killing a co-conspirator either. Looking forward to more on 24 in whatever method is used.
Lost. Well I loved seeing all the clips from the beginning to the end. I didn't understand all of the ending, maybe none of it, but I still love my characters on this show and will miss it dearly. Even though many great scenes were re-shown from the past, there were many great ones that didn't get shown. One of my favorites was when John Locke had been shot and fell into the pit of skeletons of former executed people. John was left for dead and he and we believed he was going to die. Then the boy, like an angel from above, appears at the edge of the pit and says, "Get Up, John, and Walk Away" or something like that. And John does. I loved that scene. I loved all the tender moments between our characters when they were literally at their wits end, and they clung to each other for support and compassion. I loved their ability to sacrifice themselves for others. I loved their constant bewilderment at what was going on, and their constant struggle to survive and return to their former lives. I loved their ability to adjust to the living conditions around them, and their fight to maintain some shred of humanity and ritual in their lives. In some ways, Jacob, who was supposed to be so good, seemed uncaring and aloof from his selected people. If he was a supreme being, he seemed a lazy one. He seemed inert almost. On the other hand, the evil side, who later became John Locke, always seemed involved and constantly struggling to succeed. He was evil, murderous, and lied to everyone, but he never stopped fighting for supremacy. Interesting to see the difference between the good and evil sides of nature.
So, regardless of how the show ended and whether it was purgatory or heaven or real or unreal, I don't care. I loved Lost and will savor my memories of this show for a long time.
