Has anyone seen this new(ish) show "Lost?" It's about a commercial airliner that crashes on a mysterious tropical island with all kinds of wacky secrets to stupefy and bewilder the crash survirors. Like, "Holy crap, why is there a polar bear on this tropical island?" and "What is that huge invisible thing in the jungle that likes to knock down trees and eat airliner pilots?"
I'm hooked. I've been able to watch this (the first) season's previous episides via BitTorrent, trying to catch up. In a sorta peripheral way, it reminds me of "The Prisoner," at least in terms of the absurd things that they find on the island, and the whole hey hey hey what's going on here kooky vibe. Each episode seems to center on one of the surviors, giving you a little of their back story, how they came to be on the fateful flight, etc. And of course, everybody's got skeletons in their respective closets. Juicy!
Aren't you glad I'm here to keep you updated on the latest trends in punk rock music and how they relate to current political events? I work hard at this.
