Lost, Ep 22: Updates
Go here to read another interview with Dominic Monaghan (TV Guide).
Dominic was also interviewed by Dan Snierson at EW.
IGN review of the show -- he hated it. Okay, just kidding. (If anyone does find an article by someone who disliked it, please send it along.)
BuddyTV is reporting that the Lost season finale scored ratings in excess of two to three million more than usual, and put a little crimp in American Idol's numbers. (yeeeaahhhh!!!)
Lost has been applauded for its portrayal of Muslim characters.
AP review of the finale.
MSNBC review of the finale. (I'm a little annoyed that everyone used the awesomeness of the finale to suggest the rest of the season was boring and pointless. I think they were watching a different show than the one I tuned in to every week.)
In our ongoing deciphering of Ben's journal, the best guess so far has been the following (you can go here to compare to the original diary entry):
AN IMPORTANT MEETING TONIGHT WITH(_) AND (M) REGARDING THE DEVELOPING SITUATION.WE ARE NOW IN DAY 3 OF OUR EXODUS FROMTHE VILLAGE AND I AM, I FEAR, AT THE LIMITOF MY TACTICAL RESOURCES. (J)'s AGENDA,WHICH I DON'T QUESTION, IS HOWEVER A NARROWAND DIFFICULT ONE AND I COULD WELL WISHWE'D HAD TIME TO PREPARE, NOT MERELYFOR THE MILITARY STRIKE, BUT FOR A _______CAMPAIGN IN THE BUSH. WE ARE SHORT ONPROVISIONS (SEASONAL) AND, MORE IMPORTANTLY,THE LONG-AWAITED RE-SUPPLY OF CAMP GEARHAVING BEEN MISSED (AND SO NARROWLY!) ANDJUST AS OUR WATER SUPPLY ROUTES HAVE BEENCUT OFF. WE LOOK LIKE A SAD SORT OFANARCHIST ARMY. MORALE, I HAVE TO SAY, ISAS LOW AS THE ___________ _____ _____YET, FOR ALL THAT, I FEEL APPREHENSIVE
So far I still have no confirmation on the John Lantham obit transcription that someone sent me, so it was either someone taking their best shot at filling in the blanks, or someone from the show throwing us a bone. :) I'd like to think it was the latter, but you never know. Again, the latest version of that is:
"The body of John Lantham of New York was found shortly after 4 am in the 4300 block of Grand Avenue. Ted Worden, a doorman at the Tower Lofts complex, heard loud noises coming from the victim's loft. Concerned for tenants' safety, he entered the loft and found the body hanging from a beam in the living room. According to Jaime Ortiz, a police spokesman, the incident was deemed a suicide after medical tests. Latham (sic) is survived by one teenaged son. Memorial services will be held at the Hoffs-Drawlar Funeral Home tomorrow evening."
Have I missed something major? If so, please send me the link! :)
