“The Chrysanthemum and The Sword” – Mad Men

This was my favorite episode of this season and is a big contender for my favorite episode of the series. This is the first episode in a while with Betty and Sally playing bigger role. Betty is having problems with the results of the divorce and takes it out on Sally by slapping her in the face after Sally cuts her hair. Sally gets caught playing with herself at a friends house and Betty threatens that she will chop Sally’s fingers off if she does anything like it again. Henry convinces Betty that she needs to take Sally to see a psychiatrist. Betty calls Don and tells him that they both need to meet with the psychiatrist separately and they blame Sally’s issues on one another. Betty meets with the psychiatrist and she suggests that they meet four times a week. Betty seems to be the one that really needs to see a psychiatrist I think it is clear that she had problems with her mother. In past episodes she has described her mother to be very beautiful and in this episode Betty talked about how strict she was. January Jones and the writers have done a great job with Betty’s character. I hate her for the way she disciplines Sally and all of the hate she has, but I can tell that she has been tortured to the point that she has some serious problems, and the I really feel for her.

At work, Don and the gang have competition as they attempt to win over the client, Honda. SCDP is advised to read “The Chrysanthemum and The Sword” to prepare, hence the title. When the Honda representatives arrive, Cooper almost blows all of their chances with them but luckily the translator doesn’t relay his furious racist remarks. The representatives say that they are giving each of the competitors $3,000 to create a presentation and win them over. Cooper and Pete have a heated argument. Peter says that Cooper is trying to “wrap (himself) in the flag” in order to keep them from winning Honda, because the the company will be less reliant on Lucky Strike and in turn, less reliant on Cooper. Donald suggests that they make a big commercial to present to Honda, but no one wants to because it would limit the rest of their year. Later, Don has the idea that they should trick their competition into believing that they are making the big commercial so that they will sacrifice the funds to create a commercial themselves. So, Joan has a meeting with someone that works with the competition and Don “accidentally” interrupts them with a Honda bike. And Peggy rides a bike into a studio to mislead them. Don goes to the meeting with Honda and resigns because they let SCDP’s competitor present a finished piece which was against Honda guidelines they wrote. Honda later disqualifies the other company, leaving SCDP at the front of the running for Honda.

This episode had a lot of good drama, but there were also many really funny parts. Most notably when the Honda representatives meet Joan. “How does she stand?” they ask and she says, “They are not very subtle are they?” And then, when we see Peggy driving the Honda motorcycle around and empty lot after the competitors are not allowed to enter. It was also funny when Peggy, in the most serious voice ever, tells her co-workers not to touch the drinking bird because she wants to know how long it will keep going.

One of the best lines of the episode: “Christ on a craker!” -Peter

Ben Linus Returns

Access Hollywood has released about a minute of the extra Lost footage that will be on the season 6 DVD and bluray release. It seems to answer the question of who was responsible for the Dharma food supply drops. Ben says he’s going to, “tie up a few loose ends.”

Game of Thrones Teaser Trailer

This video is only 20 seconds long, so it’s not very exciting. This show is coming to HBO next year and it is based on a famous fantasy book series. The writers want to make a series based on each book and I’m hoping it will be good enough to do so.

Summer Television Shows You Should Give A Chance

School’s out for summer for many people already and that means there’s more time to watch TV. There is a very limited of quality tv shows in the summer though. Here are a couple shows that I think look interesting enough to give a chance.

June 3rd, 9 pm – Burn Notice  (USA)

The fourth season of Burn Notice started on June 3rd. It’s an alright show. It’s clever sometimes and I don’t think you have to know too much about what happened in previous seasons to watch it. I feel that this spy show if feeling a little tired though.

June 7th, 10 pm – Persons Unknown (NBC)

This show is basically a new “The Prisoner”, it follows seven people that are trapped in an abandoned town.

June 24th, 10 pm  – Futurama (Comedy Central)

Futurama is coming back for a sixth season with most of the same voice actors. (They are counting the five direct-to-DVD movies that were released in ’08 and ’09, as the fifth season.) This might be the show I am most excited for this summer.

July 9th, 10 pm – Haven (Syfy)

This is a new show based on Stephen King’s “The Colorado Kid”. It’s about a female FBI agent (yawn) named Audrey who goes to a town to investigate something, but the town is special because it is a “haven” for victims of different supernatural afflictions.

July 13th, 10 pm – Covert Affairs (USA)

This new spy show may be interesting enough to watch if you are bored.

July 25th, 10 pm – Mad Men (AMC)

Ok, I don’t watch this show yet. It’s a serialized drama so I’m not gonna just start watching season 4 until I have caught up.

August 1st, 8 pm – Rubicon (AMC)

All I know about this show is that it is about a national think tank analyst who thinks that some of his co-workers are also members of a secret society.

“Lost” Target Ads

I thought these ads were pretty clever.

My Review of Lost’s “The End” Part 2

The island shakes violently as it is raining and the losties struggle to help Ben get out from under a tree that has pinned him down. Miles tells Kate that they are leaving in an hour on the talkie and Ben says that they can get over there in Locke’s boat.

Jack sees Locke looking out at the water and his boat. He yells his name and charges towards him. They fall to the ground and get back up to fight. The fight is pretty intense. Locke stabs Jack in the stomach and he tells Jack that he wants him to know that he died for nothing. Jack struggles with Locke as he cuts his neck. And I guess this is what caused the wound that keep opening in the flash sideways story line. Kate comes out of nowhere and shoots Locke. “I saved you a bullet,” she says. Locke gets up and tells Jack he is too late, Jack kicks him down onto some rocks jutting out of the cliff.

Sideways Locke wakes up to Jack by his side. He tells Jack that it worked and that he can feel his legs. He moves his toes and remembers his other life. Jack doesn’t remember. Locke says he has to go and Jack says he can’t and that he has to go see his son. Locke tells Jack that he doesn’t have a son and that he hopes someone can do the same thing to him that he did to Locke. Jack leaves.

Kate comforts Jack as he looks at his wounds. Sawyer, Hurley, and Ben catch up. They think everything is fine now until there is another earthquake thing.

Sideways Sawyer comes and checks up on Jin and Sun and tells them that he is going to give them extra security but they are extra smiley and say that they don’t need it. They say they will see Sawyer “there”. And he says “where?”

On Ajira, Lapidus is having plane troubles. He sends Miles to fix the plane with duct tape. Ben walkies them to see how it’s going and Lapidus says not to bother him. “Sounds like they’re making progress,” Ben says. Another earthquake. Jack says he has to turn on whatever Desmond turned off. Ben and Hurley say they are going with Jack and they say goodbye to Kate and Sawyer. “Tell me I’m gonna see you again,” Kate says. They kiss and Kate says she loves Jack. Jack says he loves Kate and they go on their separate ways.

Miles duct tapes up the plane and says, “I don’t believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in duct tape. Sayer walkies Lapidus and says they are on their way and Lapidus says there isn’t much time.

Kate and Sawyer jump off the cliff and swim to the boat.

Sideways Sawyer asks Jack where he can get food and he tells him where the vending machine is. Sawyer tries to get an Apollo bar, but it gets stuck. Juliet stops by and says that if he unplugs it and plugs it back in again the candy falls back down. Everyone at my Lost party seemed very interested in weather or not this actually works.

Sawyer and Juliet have their awakening moment and she asks if he wants to go get coffee sometime. He says that he only has a dollar after the machine ate his and she says they should go dutch in the flash.

Jack goes to the concert and Kate comes and tells him it is over. She asks if he is looking for someone and he says he is looking for his son. He asks how she knows him and she says she stole his pen. And then she holds him and says, “I missed you so much. Jack sees some flashes and is confused. Kate says he will understand if he goes with her.

On the island, Jack tells Hurley that he is going to die and that Hurley is going to take over when he dies and that it was always supposed to be Hurley. He tells Hurley that he believes in him and he says he will do it. Ben finds a Oceanic bottle and Jack finds a puddle of mud to give Hurley to drink. He drinks it and Jack says, “Now you’re like me.”

Lapidus gets the plane to work.

Hurley and Ben lower Jack into the pit in the cave and drop him like the last foot. He finds Desmond and he says that it didn’t work and that he has to leave. He says that he was right. Desmond tells him that he has to put the stone back. Jack ties Desmond up and tells him that he will see him “in another life, brotha.”

Kate and Sawyer each Hydra island to find Claire and part of the island sinks. The plane starts moving and Claire refuses to leave because she knows she is crazy. Kate says she will help her and they run to the plane. Sawyer walkies him but he doesn’t hear. Claire and the others run in front of the palne and they let them in. Jack moves the stone back.

Claire, Kate, and Sawyer get on the plane and Lapidus sets sail as the ground beneath them cracks open. They take off.

Water begins to fall around Jack and the pool lights up. Ben says he did it and they begin to bring Jack, but find out it is Desmond.

Sideways Locke arrives at the church in his wheelchair and wheels pat Ben who is sitting on a picnic table outside. Ben says he is sorry for killing him and that he did it because he was jealous that he was “special”. Locke forgives him and he says that it matters more then he can say. Ben says he has some things he still needs to work out and that he is going to stay. he tells Locke that he doesn’t need that chair anymore and he gets up, says goodbye and walks to the church.

On the islnd, Ben says he thinks that Desmond is going to be ok. Hurley asks Ben if Jack is gone and he says yes and that he did his job. Hurley doesn’t know what to do and Ben says, “I think you do, what you do best, take care of people. You can start by helping Desond get home.” Hurley asks how, because they can’t leave the island and Ben says that that was how Jacob ran things and that he can run things a better way. Hurley asks Ben if he can help him for a little while and he says that he would be honored. This scene is great.

Sideways Hurley pops out of the church and asks if Ben is coming, he says no. Hurley tells Ben that he was a good number two and Ben tells Hurley that he was a great number one.

Sideways Kate and Jack arrive and tells him that he is going to have his father’s funeral there. She says that she is going inside to wait for him to leave.

Island Jack wakes up and begins walking through the forest.

Sideways Jack walks into the church into a room where he sees symbols form religions of the world. He goes to his dad’s coffin in the room and places his hand on it. He finally remembers. He opens it and sees nothing. He closes it and his dad says, “Hey kiddo.” Jack says he doesn’t understand because and his dad said that he did. He asks how he was there and his dad asks him the same. Jack realizes that he is dead and he cry’s as his father comforts him. They tell each other they love each other. Jack asks if he is real and Christian says that they are all real, and that everything that happened was real. He says that everyone is dead and that everyone died some time. He says that everyone dies some time. Some of the people died before him and some died after. He says there is no “now” there. Jack asks where they are and he says that they are in a place that they made so that they could all find one another. Christian says that the most important part of his life was lived with them on the island and that no one dies together. He says they came together to remember and let go. He says they are “moving on.”

Christian and his dad leave the room to the sanctuary where the see everyone reunited. Locke tells him that they were waiting for him.

Island Jack walks through the bamboo forest past that old shoe while flash sideways Jack catches up with everyone in church. They all sit down and Christian goes to open the door. Island Jack lays down and Vincent comes and lays down beside him. Christian opens the door and a bright light shines on all of the losties. Jack watches the Ajira plane fly over head and he closes his eye.

Cut to Lost!

I expected so much from this 2.5 hours of television that it could not have lived up to my expectations. I thought that the beginning felt like a lame clip show, but now I feel that there is some beauty in how simple it is. It was a pretty good way to wrap the character story-lines, I feel. I think that the on island story was too simple though. I mean they just had to move that rock plug, kill Locke, and move the rock plug back? And I expected more action! But whatever.

The end of “The End” was blatantly spiritual and I feel that turned some people off. I think they could have made it more metaphorical and maybe took out the bright light to avoid bothering these people, but the show has always had religious overtones, so I guess it is fitting. The big reveal at the end as to what the “flash-sideways” is confused everyone and everyone has their own interpretation. I would be very disappointed if the finale did not spark confusion and discussion.

Here is my interpretation, the sideways world is like a version of purgatory that existed to remind the losties, of their previous life so they could let go and move on to their next life. It does this by recreating similar events from their past life to try to help trigger memories. Desmond and Charlie are one of the first to realize this and they start awakening other people. The question that everyone wants to know is how did everyone die? And I was curious how Aaron died because he was off the island. I think the reason most people died was because the island did sink, but I have no clue, it also kind of seems like that didn’t happen. I don’t think it really matters thought, because Christian tells Jack that you don’t experience time in sideways world and that everyone dies sometime. So, Aaron may have died of old age for all we know. Once everyone is enlightened they happily move on to heaven or nirvana or whatever (the writers kept it purposefully universal).

Ben did not move on, he still has work to do in this world to atone for all the people he killed or whatever.

One big question I have is: if we did not see one of the characters in the church does that mean they went to Hell? We didn’t see Micheal, I guess it would be fitting for him to go to Hell. Mr Eko wasn’t there, when he died he said he would not give his confession. I don’t think we can read too far into this though because we may not have seen everyone that was in that church, and maybe the writers could not get everyone to return that they wanted.

I feel that the end should have shined more light on them saving the world and more about how the island was important, but I also found that it was kind of cool that the writers showed that the characters were more important and that their lives on the island were simply the best part of their lives because they met each other and because one big happy family.

I feel that I could not justify not liking the finale to myself. I’m still a little unsure what to think about it. I feel like I know some aspects of it weren’t awesome, like I have discussed here, but I feel that I have found good reasons to like it.

I guess I have to say that it did not do that great at wrapping the show as a whole, which I understand could be difficult with this show, but I feel they could have done better. The show was awesome and the ending didnt ruin that. I’m happy the ending was thought provoking, at least it was interesting.
After watching it again by myself, I really like the finale. It could have been lots better, but I am happy with it.

Live Together, Die Together- My Review of Lost’s “The End” Part One

My last Lost recap 😦

It starts with Christian Shepard’s coffin arriving. Then there is a short flashsideways shot where Jack is doing doctor stuff and then there are short montage clips of Jack drinking water on the island, Sawyer and Kate in the island and Kate waiting at the church while Desmond gets the coffin.

Desmond tells Kate that the man in the coffin is Christian Shepard and Kate says, “Christian Shepard, seriously?” Pointing out that it is a blatantly religious name. Desmond tells Kate that he wants to leave, but he won’t say where. We think it is the island, but it isn’t.

On the island it looks like Jack is peeing in the island while Kate watches frm a far. Sawyer asks him if he is ok and that he is confused about what happened. Jack tells Hurley, Kate and Sawyer that they have to go past the bamboo forest to the magic light cave. Hurley says that Jacob is worse the Yoda. Star Wars reference. Sawyer says that he is going to go find Desmond.

Sideways Hurley takes Sayid to the hotel and shows him a tranquilizer gun. Sayid still doesn’t get it, he can’t remember the other dimension. Hurley goes in the motel and picks up Charlie. He doesn’t wanna come so Hurley tranquilizes him.

On the island, Jack tells about his motives for becoming protector of the island and he says that he was out of things to screw up. Kate tells him that “Nothing is irreversible.”

Sawyer tries to stealthy spy on Locke, but Ben finds him. Locke tells Sawyer that he is going to use Desmond to sink the island and Sawyer tells Locke that someone has taken Jacob’s place. Sawyer steals Ben’s gun and leaves. Locke tells Ben that he lied and that he would not be ale to have the island because it was going to sink, but that Ben could go away with him on his boat. Locke finds Vincent tracks.

Vincent licks Desmond awake and he finds himself at Rose and Bearnard’s camp. They feed him and say that they broke their rule for him. Desmond is always the special one to whom the rules don’t apply. Rose says that they don’t like the drama and don’t like helping people out. Then they get some drama. Locke and Ben come out of the forest and Locke threatens that he will kill Rose and Bernard and that he will make it hurt unless Desmond comes and does what Locke wants him to do. Rose is ready to die for the cause and Desmond agrees he will help Locke.

Locke asks Desmond if he knows where he is taking him and he says that he doesn’t know, but he guesses they are going to see a bright light. Ben’s walkie crackles, but he doesn’t answer.

It’s Miles tring to get a hold of him, he has found Alpert who still wants to blow up the plane.

Sideways Miles sees Sayid and calls Sawyer to tell him and he says he will go talk to Sun because that was who he shot.

Sideways Sun says that she is a little sore. She just got shot, of course she’s a little sore. Juliet comes in and gives Sun her ultra-sound. Sun and Jin get flashes because this happened before, but Juliet is still clueless. Jin and Sun can speak English now.

On the island, Sawyer is rushing through the forest and he runs into Kate, Jack and Hurley. Hurley freaks out because he jumps out of the forest. Sawyer tells them what happened. They all head to the light and the awesome Micheal Giaccino finale trekking music kicks in.

On an outrigger, Miles pulls Alpert’s first gray hair from his head and he says that he wants to live. They paddle into a dead body and then find Lapidus. I thought he was dead for sure. Then Lapidus tells them that he can fly the plane.

Kate shoots at Locke from a far. Silly Kate, you know you can’t kill him right? Locke says he thought Jacob would have picked someone else because he was the obvious choice. Jack says he chose and that he was gonna kill Locke. Locke asks how hw is going to kill him and Jack says it’s a surprise.

Sideways Jack and Juliet meet in the hospital and it is “revealed” that Juliet is Jack’s ex.

Jack and Sawyer have secret chat right behind Locke about killing Locke. At the point of the bamboo forest, Locke says that just he, Desmond, and Jack should go on from here. As they tie Desmond up, he tells Jack that they are together in the flash-sideways. But Jack says that “All of this matters.” They go in the cave and see a waterfall.

Sideways Hurley and Sayid talk in Hurley’s Hummer. Boone and Shanon are fighting outside and Sayid has his flash moment when he meets her and they kiss. Boone tells Hurley that it was a pain to get Shanon from Australia.

Miles finally gets a hold of Ben and tells him their plan. Claire shoots at them and it reminds me of the scene in the finale of season three when Ben has Jin, Sayid and Bernard tied up on the other side of the walkie talkie. Anyway, they offer to take Claire with them and she refuses. Locke and Jack let Desmond down the waterfall on a rope. Locke comments on how this is similar to the time when they lowered someone into a hatch and that Desmond was in it. Jack says that he isn’t Locke and that Locke was right about everything. Locke says that Jack will know he is wrong when the island sinks.

Sideways Juliet gets called to the hospital, leaving short Claire and David together.

Backstage Charlotte wakes Charlie up and she meets Daniel. Claire and Kate are surprised to see each other at Desmond’s table. Table 23. Pierre Chang introduces Daniel Widmore accompanied by Driveshaft. Charlie sees Claire and they stare at each other. Then Claire has tummy problems and leaves, Kate follows after her.

Desmond reaches the inner pool below the waterfall and he is blasted by electromagnetic energy. He pulls a giant stone cork thing out of the center of the pool and it drains. The cork hole turns orange and flames come from it an it looks like they are in a volcano. Could this be the volcano? Locke says it looks like you were wrong. Jack punches Locke and he bleeds. “It looks like you were wrong too,” he says. Locke hits him in the head with a rock and runs away.

Sideways Claire goes backstage looking for a bathroom and Kate finds her.

Eloise tells Desmond that she thought she made it clear that she wanted him to stop what he was doing. Desmond tells her that he doesn’t care and that and that he won’t be taking Daniel.

Kate comforts Claire and sends Charlie to go get water and blankets. We see a recreation of Aaron’s birth between flashes of the actual one and Kate sees the other world. It’s kind of an awkward moment to remember the other storyline. Charlie gives her the blanket and they remember each other. Desmond comes in and ask Kate if she understands. She says, “So, now what?”

My Thoughts On “The End” of Lost

Don’t read this if you haven’t seen the finale. I’m going to post a full recap later, but I don’t have time for that and I just had to let out some of my views on the finale now.

I expected so much from this 2.5 hours of television that it could not have lived up to my expectations. I thought that the beginning felt like a lame clip show, but now I feel that there is some beauty in how simple it is. It was a pretty good way to wrap the character story-lines, I feel.

The show was awesome and the ending didnt ruin that. I’m happy the ending was thought provoking, at least it was interesting.

Lost, How I Love Thee, Let Me Count The Ways: A Lost Nerd’s Farwell

I wrote this before the finale, so forgive me for my lack of knowledge about the flash-sideways/purgatory or whatever it is.

It’s kind of sad how many countless hours I have spent watching, re-watching, and re-re-watching Lost. Or how many hours I have theorized, written about, discussed Lost, or listened to Lost podcasts. Lost has been my obsession for the last couple years and this is why:

First of all Lost did a great time at creating real characters that changed drastically over the six season span of the series. We have learned so much about them. We learned about their lives before the island in flash-backs, their lives after the island through flash-forwards, and we have even learned how they would behave in an alternate universe (if that is what it is). Over the course of the show, Lost has had twenty-four characters that have been billed as starring roles. And almost all of those characters, I have found interesting and I have cared about.

Regardless of all of the ridiculous stuff that goes on on this show, the writers usually do a very good job at keeping it character-centric. Take for instance many Lost fans’ favorite episode of Lost, “The Constant”. This is probably the most heady hour of television on prime-time television. It deals with the consciousness of a character named Desmond traveling back and forth through time and space, but the episode is also very focused on Desmond’s relationship with his girlfriend Penny.

Part of the reason that the characters feel so realistic is that they are portrayed by some pretty awesome actors. Micheal Emerson (Ben Linus) and Terry O’Quinn (John Locke) are the best of the cast.

Lost has confused me, creeped me out, made me laugh out loud on numerous occasions, and I admit it has made me cry. I feel this is mostly due to the great writing on Lost. Even though, since Lost is a show about mystery, it sometimes feels like there are forced surprises, it is the most surprising show on tv. In season one you find out that before Locke was on the island, he was paralyzed. All in one scene in season two, Micheal kills Ana Lucia and Libby, sets Ben (we knew him as Henry Gale back then) free, and shots himself in the arm. In the season three finale a new storytelling technique is introduced when we find out what we though to be a flashback like we were so used to after three seasons of nothing else, was actually a flash-forward in which Jack and Kate had made it off the island. In season four we learn that only six of the losties got off the island. Hurley is in an insane asylum, Jack is severely depressed, Kate is pretending to be the mother of Claire’s child, Jin appears to be dead, and Sayid is working for evil Ben. In season five we learn that someone who appears to be a reborn John Locke, is actually one of the island gods who looks like John Locke. These are only a few of the many twisty turns the story of Lost has taken, there’s usually at least one twist or surprise in every episode, usually more.

I love that Lost tries hard to play it dangerous. I think it is easily the most complicated show ever on prime-time. It has dealt with that smoke-monster thing, time-travel, alternate dimensions (?), destiny, faith, electromagnetism, controversial science experiments, ghosts, and tons of other things.

It bothers me when people be disin’ my Lost. When I ask people why they are such haters, they usually say one of two things: “There is a polar bear on the island.” or “There is a smokemonster.” Most people quit the show because they were impatient and they were just focused on answers. I think it is silly when people say that Lost has jumped the shark. I think it jumped the shark in the pilot and and I like that. Lost is largely about faith and many people have given up on the show due to their lack thereof. I have faith in the writers because of the ways I have seen many big mysteries of Lost revealed in a very satisfying way and because the writers fought for and got permission to end the story on their own terms.

Finding someone that watches Lost is a big deal. You will always have something to talk to them about. I feel that I have made some friends I would not have if it weren’t for Lost. I have forced many of my friends into watching Lost. I have Dharma Nike shoes.If you don’t know what my favorite show is, you probably don’t know me very well.

It is quite tormenting when a lost fan can’t find someone to talk about Lost with the day after it aired. I know that I have probably bored the crap out of some people that aren’t as obsessed with the show as I am. I just had to let it out though. I started this blog this yeah, and that may have helped me with these urges. Lost is the main reason I decided to write this blog and Lost has inspired me to write my own sci-fi fiction in hopes of recreating my own story.

Lost, I will miss you.

“The End” is Nigh – Lost Finale Preview

So, the day has finally arrived. I think I’m a little bit more sad then excited. Here are some of my predictions for the finale. I don’t think Jack is going to be the island god after this episode. I think that Locke is going to blow up the island like he tells Ben he will. This will cause the island to sink, creating the flash sideways storyline. I predict that we will see Alpert, Vincent, Rose, and Bernard again. I’m sure we will see a lot of the old cast return. SPOILER ALERT! SKIP REST OF PARAGRAPH! The writers have confirmed that Walt will return.

I don’t really what a good ending for Lost would be. I’m excited to see what the writers have done.

I’m having a Lost party, so my review might be a bit later then usual. I’ll probably get it up sometime tomorrow morning.
