2 + 2 = 5

lu: (Beyond creepy)
[livejournal.com profile] deadcinderella inspired me to talk a little about Lost. Not the episodes themselves, but just in general.

A lot of people have told me that they (really sorry about the pun) lost interest in the series. Too much mystery, very few answers. Some say Locke is weirder than ever, and that J.J. Abrams is going to explain everything through the realm of the "unnatural".

Now, I say, seriously people.

Anyone that OMGLOVED the first season, all it's questions, mysteries and, quite frankly, bizarre things has no right to decide, right now, that Locke is "weirder than ever". Does anyone remember that creepy herb he put on Boone's head in season one that made him hallucinate? All his craziness towards the hatch, that yellow light (which was explained by pure and simple reasonable facts) and all that jazz.

If you think rationally, all Locke did on that episode was hallucinate with the help of really cool herbs that he had to save Eko. He felt guilty about Boone, Boone shows up on his subconscious. He felt guilty about Eko. Guess who Boone told him to save? WOW. Very psychic that all was, eh?

All I'm saying is... patience, my dear hobbitses. Anyone that has seen Alias know how crazy and bizarre J.J. Abrams is. He already said explanations will be scientific. He also said he had enough script for six seasons. I was programmed, from the start, to only get some answers by then. Were you whole lot not? What would be the fun if we found out everything so soon?

Season three is amazing so far (the last ep... WOW) and, as Renata said, we don't waste time watching poker matches. This is not Big Brother. The fun of the series isn't to see Kate in her bathing suit.

...Or maybe it is, like some of the theories say. After all, sometimes is does seem that one that island WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH AND BEN IS WATCHING YOU.

In Lost two plus two can equal five. And while some people decide that is an absurd and turn their backs on the series, us, believers in J.J. Abrams's craziness, wait to see the insane, but rational, equation that would give us that result.

ETA: I've just seen this picture in [livejournal.com profile] fly_meaway's journal. Look at the plane, to the right, behind Walt. See the symbol? Now tell me all of this wasn't meticulously planned.


You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
