Who the hell is Nikki?

Ya'll, Lost was actually fully awesome last night. Not in that mind-breaking "Walkabout" kind of way, but just in a fun, hilariously meta, pretty much completely standalone and yet it totally works kind of way. Billy Dee Williams, people! Need I say more?

The producers have been saying for months that we just had to wait for the Nikki & Paolo episode, because it was going to be great and then we'd get why these two losers were taking up our screen space. Yeah, right, whatever. Only they were kinda right.

All the in-jokes, the recreated flashbacks with long-dead cast members (Arzt!), the genre-parodying cheese. It's not "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose" or anything, but it might have almost been "Small Potatoes." Okay, maybe not quite that awesome, but it was at least "Hollywood A.D." Shut up, I liked that episode. It and "Je Souhaite" were my only rewards for struggling through the miasma that was season seven of the X-Files.

Anyhoo, I guess this means I'm officially back on the Lost train. 'Cause I've actually really been enjoying it this season. And until something better gets scheduled opposite it, what the hell else am I gonna do with my time?

The Cops episode was season seven, too, wasn't it? That one was pretty good, as I recall. Otherwise, I've blocked it all out.

Lost is on at 9 p.m. Wednesdays (here in the U.S. central time zone, that is). Between that and Bones, Wednesday is becoming one of my favorite TV nights again.

I really liked last night's Lost, too. Especially that final chilling scene! The horror.
(And next week looks great, too. although I am going to refrain from saying why in case you didn't see the preview and don't want to know

Next week does look good. Mr. Sus walked through the room during the preview and saw (spoilery name) and (spoilery name) in the rain with the (spoilery objects) and was like, "Why don't they just go ahead and call it porn, 'cause that's obviously what they're going for."

:pursing lips: I refuse to believe that there was anything in Lost last night that can stand up to Tea Leoni running back and forth in the background in her high heels. Or the Skinman in the bathtub. Can't make me believe it. ;)
