Love this compliment that TV Without Pity pays Dom: "Kate still wants to know what Jack was doing out on his vision quest or whatever, and Jack doesn't want to tell her. She tells him that his tattoos don't seem to jibe with the steadfast doctor she thinks he is. "Are you one of those hardcore spinal surgeons?" she asks playfully. Charlie interrupts to tell them that if they're finished "verbally copulating," they should get moving -- everyone needs water, and Locke, who's shown shaving with one of the smaller of his 400 knives, wants to get going. As they hike off, Kate tells Charlie to ask Jack about his tattoos. "Oh," replies Charlie, "you guys have an inside joke. How absolutely wonderful for you both." Dominic Monaghan is good at taking lines that are only barely jokes and turning them funny."
I remember loving the "verbally copulating" line when I saw it... *G* And I thought it was a nice bit that showed an irritated Charlie - probably due to his not having taken his heroin for a while. Hope that means some great scathing lines before he goes off the edge when he goes through withdrawal. I had the same reaction as Dan Kwa of TWOP - very pleasantly surprised that he got those kinds of lines. Nice job by the writers. Not surprised by Dom's reading of them - because, you know what? He is good. *applauds*
[ETA: "Bumble. Bumble in the jungle." WHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!! *cough* Hey, I thought it was funny!
And - behind an lj-cut: What's the big deal about staying on the beach?!?! You've got HUGE pieces of an aircraft on the beach. Do you seriously think some passing plane or boat is going to see those and say "Gee - but there's no people there. Well, let's just leave - no sense in looking in the jungle for the survivors (of whom there must be some, since there are all sorts of signs people are there)." And good point by Dan Kwa - why is Sun leaving from Sydney - aren't she and Jin from Korea? I mean, that's why she doesn't speak English, right? Very strange. And I cracked up at Dom having to pretend he's freaked out by bees. *G*]
And if you haven't seen the interview of Dom on the Late Late Show, it's really worth it - nice long interview. It's at Dom_Media (link up at beizy's LJ). You can tell the audience is filled with Dom fangirls. *G*
