Hey, HC... how come you didn't tell me about this week's LOST re-cap? *G* - "You didn't hear about the polar bear?"

Hey, HC... how come you didn't tell me about this week's LOST re-cap? *G*
Somebody's LJ mentioned this week's TV Without Pity update, mentioning how the very first line made them feel that the new guy doing the updates was already doing better (I believe) - *G*. So I read it - and it had some rather choice things to say about Charlie and Claire - *L*!. (spoilers for those who haven't watched last week's episode yet). And, yes, I DID sleep all day Saturday and am staying up too late again... *sigh*.

http://www.televisionwithoutpity.com/story.cgi?show=136&story=7370&limit=&sort=

...Charlie and Kate have found a nice secluded spot in the jungle to invade Claire's privacy. Charlie thanks Kate for her help, even though he says he could have handled things himself. "I've had my share of manly encounters," he says, which I don't think came out quite the way he intended it. [*LOL*! GMTA] Kate smiles at him and says she just figured he could use the company. "You all right?" she says. He says he is. Then he rambles about how weird it is that he's only known Claire for a week, but he's so affected by her disappearance. "Every day she's gone, it feels like bits of me are crumbling, or something." ... She gives him a reassuring pat on the leg, and gets up. Charlie watches her, likely thinking, "Well, Claire's gone, but Kate's a little bit o' all right, yeah?" [Agreed... and this was before I realized he really is seeing Evangeline!] And now begins the hour-long fidget of Charlie as he tries to keep himself from reading her diary. And it's well-acted and funny and everything, but feels horribly out of context. Bits of Charlie are crumbling with Claire's absence (pregnant and kidnapped, let's not forget, by people for reasons we don't know and who almost killed Charlie), yet this is played like a seventh-grader who finds his crush's diary and wants to find out if he's mentioned. [Thought you'd appreciate this confirmation of your feelings about it, HC - *G*]


...Apparently Charlie has lost the battle of his conscience and is unabashedly reading Claire's diary. She seems to have listed things that she misses, stuff that I guess Charlie hasn't had time to pantomime so she doesn't miss them anymore. And she's written a bunch of things about Charlie too, like "makes me feel safe" and "adorable" and "not the kind of guy who would read my diary" and "why do all the LOTR actors get screwed at the Oscars every year?" {*LOL*!!!!] Personally, I'm disappointed the final entry doesn't consist of: "Dear Diary: Today I talked to Charlie. Hey, what's that noise? Who are you? Aaaaiiiiieeee!!!!" with a long jagged mark trailing off the page. ... but Charlie's all gung-ho to look for her right now. "Charlie, we all want to find Claire," says Jack, in one of the more unintentionally hilarious lines of the season. He says it makes no sense to go after her in the middle of the night. Or during the day, or in the morning, or at all...

Wait a minute. Do you mean to tell me that no one's looking for Claire, that Boone and Locke even just pretended to look for her, and no one's going to not even now that they have a possible location, but Vincent goes missing and Boone and Locke immediately start searching (even though, as Locke himself pointed out, Vincent found his way back once and likely will again)? Are you fucking kidding me? You bastards all deserve to stay stranded forever. [Ain't THAT the truth???????!!!!!!}

Amen to that! It has annoyed me that they don't seem too concerned about Claire since her disappearance. Oh, but imagine it were Jack or Kate missing. They would be combing the jungle night and day to find them. Granted, Jack is a doctor and someone that they could very much need to get back for their own safety. Still, if it had been Kate, the writers would have them all losing their minds over it and trying to find her every waking moment. Because they all NEED their ex-convict back, don't they? But not the very pregnant and very sweet Claire. No, she will be just fine. Let's just wait and see if she happens to turn up on her own....oh, look! She DID! ;)

Yes - extremely odd - I think the writers made a big goof here, letting time pass without people looking for her. I mean, have people look for her, but not succeed - but don't give UP!

Eeeek; I thought I mentioned that at some point! I am teH lame. *hangs head in shame*

I'm really encouraged about how Daniel's recaps are going now, at least in part because he seems to agree with some of the very strong feelings I have about the show. ;)

No, I probably just missed it! And, yep - he was definitely agreeing with you on that one! But I still see it as not just a "funny bit" - but one showing the parallel with his addiction. I could see him doing the same exact actions with a small bag of drugs... only then - it wouldn't be funny.

I really need to catch up on this show sometime

But on a related note, I was driving down to Chicago yesterday, and was right behind a huge shiny black pickup truck with a license plate that read, simply, "Lost".

I about drove off the road laughing...
