LOST Thoughts: Benny Gets the Emmy

Guess you can’t say ” What about ME!” anymore, Ben. 😉 Because ME… that is, Michael Emerson, won the Emmy for ” Best Supporting Actor in a Supporting Role, Drama”. Congratulations for your well deserved honor.

No writing award for Darlton? No statuette to LOST for ” Best Drama”?!

Look for a serious sweep next year for the show’s swan song.

LOST Thoughts: Five Years Ago Today…

mswendygravitar8

On September 22nd, 2004. I was Piloting through the channels on my old tube television set. The tv landscape was like a veritable Tabula Rasa as I’d Walkabout aimlessly across it. My White Rabbit ears were drooping down, as if saddened at the prospect of yet another adequate, but ultimately dissatisfying ,new season of programming.

But in The House emanating from the screen like the luminescence of the Rising Sun, was an image of the face of a man surrounded by radiating jungle brush. I had now become The Moth to the flame of this captivating scene. The smoke, the screams, the sheer magnitude of what was being presented in such a comparably small venue.

As I watched ( and what I heard was budgeted for) what amounted to a feature film in my living room, I thought that they had some kind of Confidence, Man, to put so much monetary backing into what I assumed was a Survivor/Jurassic Park/Melrose Place hybrid. But there was a polar bear, riveting character flashbacks and a mysterious French woman’s 16 year old transmission piping through a handheld radio. And I thought ” Am I Solitary in my discovery of how magnificent this show is?” I soon learned that the ratings were Raised By Another fan…and another…and another (growing into the enormous community it is today).

Despite the fact that All the Best Cowboys Have Daddy Issues, were the writers just herding us into their own therapy sessions? Was this, like some critics/friends said….just a Gen X melodrama glossed with a Sci Fi veneer? Whatever the Case May Be, it didn’t matter. I knew it was Special. And I wasn’t alone in my assessment. It seemed like people all over the world had given it their Hearts and Minds. It was most evident in the abundance of podcasts, blogs and message boards dedicated to it. With it, came new friendships that may have never existed. People expressing their wisdom, their wit, their passion, their creativity. It was like a Homecoming for those who had experienced some level of fandom elsewhere but never to this extent. The internet was filled with Outlaws branching out from the standard fair of conventional outlets for fan appreciation.

I know that this was a new experience personally. I was …In Translation from being a once a week casual watcher to a full throttle card carrying geek! I looked at the Numbers on my driver’s license to make sure how old I was. Wasn’t I supposed to have left this kind of behavior behind many years ago?

Yet it was no use. I was hooked! Rewatching, reanalysis, reheating dinner because I was trying to finish up another post. It seems like there was no way out of the corner of this obsession, save some sort of Deus Ex Machina. But in the end, I think it will Do No Harm. In fact, it has been for The Greater Good with the myriad of subjects that have been studied trying to “figure out” what’s actually going on on this show. 🙂

Well, I must Exodus from this egregiously convoluted blog entry. But not without wishing LOST a Happy 5thCrashiversary to ( IMO) the best show EVER! 8)

LOST Thoughts ( and video) : Locke, I Am Your Father! (?)

mswendygravitar8

I was listening to Alex’s LOST Hiatus podcast and he was briefly mentioning his theory about the Smoke Monster. That Smokey at one point was a living being, possibly even a spiritual entity of some sort (Cerebus?) But then perhaps something happened that made it necessary to “harness” it and it is now partially mechanical ( Very interesting theory, by the way Alex 🙂 ) .

Disclaimer: I fully admit, the following theory is pretty “out there” and I’m not even sure where it’s going entirely…. but I decided to put it up anyway. 🙂

This got me thinking about the mixing of these two elements (organic and metallic) and of LOST writers admiration of ( yes, I know, again) “Star Wars”… and this scene came to mind ( I have a feeling that lost-hurley-tHurley probably wouldn’t have stayed conscious watching this 😉 ) .


( ” Darth Vader in the Making” from ” Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith” Posted by melv4 on youtube)

In LOST, Season One, there is a Lockecentric episode titled ” Deus Ex Machina” which means ” God from the machine”. This is a term used for writers/playwrights who write themselves into a corner and can’t find a plausible way to end their story. So, they would tack on “God/an angel swoops down and saves the day! The End.” In this episode, Anthony Cooper told Locke that he must be “God” if he was his father, since he was “immaculately conceived”, according to Emily. We find out though that it was really Cooper that thought of the conception story for the con to steal John’s kidney.

But what if what Cooper/Emily were saying was actually true? And what if “Deus Ex Machina” is in the literal sense in LOST’s story line ? That there is an immortal being that resides within a machine. That this title might be a clue as to what Smokey is.

Maybe the first time we actually see Locke meet his dad wasn’t in a ” Deus Ex Machina” flashback but on Island in ” Walkabout”?

And is this the reason for John’s choice of subject for his drawing at a very young age?

With all the talk of Destiny and the uniqueness of his paternity, will we see a similar scene involving lost-locke-t1 “Colonel ” Locke ? 😉

One more Locke connection : Watching this video reminded me that Luke Skywalker… was a farmer. 🙂
