I can't even tell you how happy and relieved I feel today, knowing that I don't have to work on that hateful novel anymore.
So, Lost... my non-spoilery opinion is that it was the first episode I've enjoyed in a while, and I think it was because they stayed focused on the castaways we know and love and they finally dealt with some of the hatch weirdness. Also, I didn't have to listen to Ana Lucia yelling at anyone so I didn't once have the urge to jab a fork into my eye.
I was thinking about it (and I'm unspoiled so this is just random, out-of-my-ass speculation) and so far they've killed off the two characters who were initially the most annoying to me... Boone and Snickerbitch (which, by the way, I think is pretty considerate of them). So if they continue following this pattern, Jack will be the next to die, followed by Ana Lucia. One can only hope. And Claire, you better get off the brat track you've been on lately 'cause I've got you in my sights.
