ozmissage: (Lost. Juliet. Time Traveler.)
So I was all prepared to be like Emmy’s you are invalid because they shut out Community (Outrage!) and Justified (Timothy Olyphant and Walton Goggins don’t need your love Emmy voters!) and my beloved Lauren Graham (She’s on NBC now, damnit!) but then something miraculous and beautiful happened and all was forgiven:


THIS BAMF WAS NOMINATED FOR BEST GUEST ACTRESS IN A FREAKING RIDICULOUS SEASON OF TELEVISION





That squeal of delight you heard echoing throughout the land was me dying from happiness. I may have shed a tear. Shut up. Don’t judge, you know Elizabeth Mitchell owns me. She is magnificent and they threw her down a well and smashed my heart. But now Darlton can suck it because she is an Emmy nominee(I’m not even going to point out how she should have been nominated---and won---in seasons three and five, I’m just going to be grateful that the Emmy voters were like: Damn that five minutes of television was kickass.) If she wins I will lose every ounce of composure I’ve ever possessed.

MY GIRL, YOU GUYS. I’m so happy I can’t even say.
ozmissage: (Lost.)
Six years I’ve devoted to this crazy show about polar bears, smoke monsters, washed up bloody rock gods, imaginary peanut butter, flashbacking/forwarding/sidewaysing, a tortured torturer, a book-loving,wise cracking southerner, numbers, destiny, time travel, hippies, constants, a love-lorn Scotsman, shirtless men who look awfully pretty wet, a ghostbuster, a magical island, mysteries without answers, doing canon balls in the ocean and killing people with your feet, letting go, going back, living together and dying alone, redemption, a love triangle that drove me nuts, and one glorious woman named Juliet Burke and all I have to say is---

Six years well spent. Next year when every new show on television is about cops, lawyers, and spies and their various cases of the week I will be sitting in my room watching Lost DVDS and grumbling about the good old days. No matter how it goes out tonight, I won’t ever regret the ride.

To the good, the bad, and the incomprehensible---it’s been a pleasure to watch. I’m always going to miss being Lost.

ozmissage: (Lost. Charlie. Greatest Hits.)
Can I just say it was ridiculously hard to narrow all of the awesome in season three down to 25 moments? Let’s bear in mind that I had already used a bunch of clips (like the aloe scene and the cabin and “We have to go back!”) in previous lists and they were therefore disqualified by my own weird set of rules and it was still impossible to keep it at 25.

This season I just…I can’t even begin to explain how much I love it. This was the year when the media was like, Lost what is happening to you? And I was like it is being awesome that’s what’s happening, shut up media! The facts are these: this season introduced Juliet Burke (who would have completely dominated this list had she not had her own). This season had a beautiful, moving Charlie plot that was respectful both to the character and to my intelligence as a viewer (unlike some seasons *cough* season 2 *cough*). This season had New Otherton, creepy cabins, Anthony Cooper, a delightful meta/Twilight Zone episode and freaking “Flashes Before Your Eyes”. It had Nathan Fillion! Come on, what else could we possibly ask for?

Full disclosure: this list is super biased. Like more so than usual. You are going to read the names Charlie, Juliet, Des, and Hurley many, many times. I think I temporarily forgot Jin/Sun existed. They’ll be back tomorrow.

Clips (many, many clips) under the cut.

My 25 (yeah, right) Favorite Season Three Moments

If you had any idea what this place was you wouldn't be putting chicken in your refrigerator. )
ozmissage: (Lost. Old school trekking.)
In my long and illustrious history with Lost no other season has so thoroughly tried my patience as much as season two did (not even season six.) Between the wonky characterizations, the back-burnering of my favorite characters, and the never-ending push the button debates I was a very mopey fangirl that year. Still despite my frustrations, I found a lot to love as well, namely one Mr. Desmond David Hume.

This list is heavy on mythology moments, tailies (well Eko and Ana), and Desmond. It was a rough year for the original castaways, it’s a good thing we had a hot Scotsman and a dude with a Jesus stick to keep us occupied. Clips and rambling under the cut.

My 25 Favorite Moments From Season Two

Because all we really need to survive is one person who truly loves us. )
ozmissage: (Lost. You guys where are we?)
Before we get started, here’s a roundup of my previous Lost lists. I’m trying to keep myself from repeating moments so if you see a big scene missing I’m not crazy, I probably just included it on another list. Unless I just didn’t like it. I have weird taste in scenes sometimes. As always, these lists are incredibly biased towards characters I love, I’m about as fair and balanced as Fox news, what can I say?

Originally, I planned to post one epic list of all of my favorite Lost moments. It was a good plan aside from the part where I fail at making choices. So rather than have things dissolve into a Sophie’s (Jacob’s?) Choice scenario I decided to devote each day of this week to a different season. I capped myself at 25 moments each…but I’m a dirty, rotten cheater when I have to be.

We begin with season one. The one Lost season that’s pretty much universally beloved. Before hatches, hippies, bombs, and morality detectors---Lost was just a kickass show about a bunch of people surviving on a vaguely weird island. It also had the distinction of looking like nothing else that had ever been on network television before.

I still have vivid memories of watching Jack wake up in the jungle for the first time. Television wasn’t supposed to be that cinematic, complicated, or aggressively bizarre---until Lost changed the rules. Now I’ll admit I’m not quite as nostalgic for the “good old days” as some Lost fans, but there’s no way around it, season one was one hell of an epic year of television.

Lots of clips/links under the cut.

My 25-ish Favorite Moments From Lost Season One.

Spoilers for last night's ep in the vid, so click with caution.



Has everyone recovered yet? Yeah, me neither.
ozmissage: (DW. Doctor/Rose.)

* I suck at commenting this week unless it involves comment fic. Maybe Lost will jolt me out of my malaise? I hope so, cause crappy mood is crappy. Also were we all aware that there’s no new Lost next week? I do not approve of this development.

* So remember how I was wringing my hands over the new Doctor a few months ago? I believe I said Smith was too young to play the role and it was going to suck and I wanted Ten back…I’m an idiot. Just putting that out there.

Eleven is brilliant, like mind-blowingly-I-would-follow-this-guy-off-a-cliff brilliant. I watched the first episode twice in a twenty-four hour period and I promise you I will be watching it again before Saturday. And Amy Pond! I already love this woman. I love her because she lives in a small town and spends all of her time looking at the stars, because she doesn’t want to settle, because she’s a little screwed up and her life isn’t going the way she wants it too and because she has red hair.

Also there were lens flares and cracks in the wall and bowties. *hearts*

Is it Saturday yet?

* I went to see Date Night last weekend and it was right up my alley humor wise. It also made me realize something sad but true about myself: I like my relationships like I like my couches…comfy and worn in. This is true in my fiction and my real life. I don’t like those OMG we can’t keep our hands off each other, I love you/I hate you things. They exhaust me and bore me. I just want to see two people who love each other hang out and make fun of the super kissy couple at the next table. Is that too much to ask universe? You know for me and for the fictional people I love?

All this is to say: Steve Carell/Tina Fey= OTP. I now want Liz/Michael fic. That should be a thing.

* Kate Nash has a new CD out today! Oh how I adore that woman and her delightfully boppy, British pop music.

*Hey I wrote stuff! I’m going to put this here so I can locate everything later.

You know how people warn you not to visit the tv tropes site unless you have a day and a half to kill? Listen to them for they are very wise souls.

Good grief, I went in search of one thing (that I never found) and ended up reading through all of the Lost tropes and LMAO. I love Lost. I know I say that a lot, but it’s a true fact. I love that crazy, silly, beautiful show so much. And apparently I also love tv tropes.
This one in particular caught my eye: Crowning Moment of Awesome.

After reading that I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to come up with my personal Crowning Moment of Awesome for each of the Losties. Because it’s after midnight and this is what I do with my free time. These are my personal favorite moments, but now I’m curious. What are your favorite "OMG I will love you forever" character moments? It doesn’t have to be for the Losties. You guys know I watch everything.

*List includes season six spoilers. Just FYI.

I shot a bear. )

Alright it's your turn. Hit me with some awesome.
ozmissage: (Lost. Better Days.)



March Madness starts tomorrow! This is me being excited. Lost fans get ready to vote, we are always crazy underrepresented. The prelims open tomorrow and I’m personally pulling for Juliet, but I will happily support whatever Lostie makes it through to the next round. (And yes this is probably all I’m going to talk about for the next two weeks, but you guys this is serious business.)
*returns to writing*

Let's Do This.

ozmissage: (Lost. Must Be Tues.)

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] alliecat8:

When you see this, quote LOST in your journal

“Taco night? I don’t do taco night!”

“The ditch had a gun?”

“Oh you guys have an inside joke. How absolutely wonderful for you both.”

“Dude, he’s Korean. I’m from Encino.”

“You still got my back?”

“Absolutely.”

Ahem. So I was going to post one final list today of my all-time favorite Lost moments, but then I decided to hold off on that particular list until season six is over. Ideally, this season is going to offer me just as many moments to love as the first five did so I want to be able to include them as well.

Ah, who am I kidding? The truth is I have the attention span of a hyperactive three-old who just ate an entire pack of Oreo’s today and I couldn’t sit still long enough to string words together into actual sense-making sentences. IT’S LOST DAY.OMG.

But also, the first thing.

In a failed attempt to distract myself I watched an episode of SPN since I haven’t watched one in about a week. I watched “On the Head of a Pin”, which I’m probably going to need to watch again now because it seemed like a big mission statement for the season kind of episode and I kept zoning out and trying to estimate how many tissues I’m going to need to get through the Lost premiere.

But my very brief, not particulary spoilery thoughts under the cut.

On the Head of a Pin )

Can I has Lost now? Please?


ozmissage: (Lost. S/J. Three Years Two weeks)
I wasn’t going to do a list of romantic moments…I honestly didn’t think I could come up with fifteen. But then I thought about it…and thought about it some more and managed to come up with sixteen scenes that made me cry/wibble/aww/and squee like a love-struck fangirl.

At the end of the day, romance on Lost that doesn’t involve Des/Penny or Sawyer/Juliet has rarely worked for me. I think I’ve said this before but my all time favorite “relationship” is the friendship between Charlie and Hurley. Still, there have been moments when I’ve been charmed by pretty much every major couple on the show. While I’m admitting up front that this list is far more biased than any of the others, every corner of the quadrangle is represented at least once. So, there’s that. Clips/links provided…and can I just say how much easier it is to find shippy moments? Youtube is for lovers I guess.

16 Times Lost Made My Cynical Heart Melt into a Puddle of Romantic Goo

All we truly need to survive is one person who loves us. )
ozmissage: (Lost. Ben's sorry he's so awesome.)
I was planning on posting a list of the most romantic Lost scenes today, but I grew frustrated trying to come up with more than eight that I really loved so I tossed that notion out the window and decided to go for something our show has no shortage of---WTF just happened moments?

Nobody and I mean nobody, does twists like Lost. I’ve honestly never seen a gutsier show. There are only two things one needs to remember when watching Lost:

1. Anything can and will happen…seriously, weirdness is a fact of life on craphole island.
2. No one is safe. You are going to love these people and they are going to die in ever increasingly horrific and creative ways. That’s just how it goes.

These are the 15 moments that most thoroughly blew my mind. Clips/links provided.
*A/N 1: I know there’s at least one moment not on this list that most definitely should be…but I’m saving it for my final list which will go up tomorrow or Tues. So just know I haven’t lost my mind, it’s coming…
*A/N 2: OMG TWO DAYS!!! Ahem.

15 “Holy Polar Bear, Batman! Did That Actually Just Happen?” Lost Moments

You didn't hear about the polar bear? )
ozmissage: (Lost. Charlie's got a gun.)

Alright guys, I’ll be back to posting scene lists tomorrow, but today I have to ask you to forgive me for taking a little detour and being incredibly wordy. Um…sorry about that in advance.

There are certain episodes of Lost that I feel are inarguably great: “Walkabout”, “The Constant”, “The Man Behind the Curtain”, “Through the Looking Glass”---they’re classics plain and simple. But for every classic there’s a little episode that has either been forgotten or ignored or in some cases just plain detested.

Weirdly, some of these episodes are actually among my favorites. I chose these eight episodes in particular because of their ambition or because they reveal something interesting about the characters. They’re not perfect, most of them are deeply flawed and in some cases I think the concept was far better than the execution with the exception of the first one which is pure brilliance.

And no, “Stranger in a Strange Land” is not on this list. Sorry Darlton, even I can’t defend that one.

 

8 Criminally Underrated Episodes of Lost

"I wish..." )

 

ozmissage: (Lost. Better Days.)
In the past couple of years, Lost has become a big picture kind of show. It moves faster now, the plotting is tighter, and there’s a real sense of urgency in nearly every episode. And I don’t have a problem with that, in many ways I think it makes the series better. Jacob knows, I don’t miss sub-plots about missing wedding rings and Sawyer squishing harmless tree frogs.

But at the same time that meandering in the early seasons gave us some wonderful little character moments. Were they terribly important in the grand scheme of things? Not really, but they added a sense of warmth and humanity to the show that set it apart from pretty much every other show on television. And they were certainly entertaining to watch. Here’s sixteen of my favorite moments (mostly from s1-3, but a few from the later seasons snuck in there too). I warn you some of these suckers are mighty random. Clips included when I could find them…apparently Youtube users don’t share my love for b-plots and throwaway scenes.

16 Completely Inconsequential Lost Scenes That Make Me Ridiculously Happy

Dudes listen. Our lives suck! )
ozmissage: (Lost. Juliet. Ain't typical.)
Alright guys, I’m unofficially declaring it Lost week at my journal. Which is my way of giving myself an excuse to post arbitrary lists in order to keep my premiere excitement/anxiety/angst at bay until next Tuesday. Originally I was going to post a list of my 50 favorite Lost moments and call it a day but that list got way out of hand. Instead I’m opting for random themed lists. Because that’s how I roll.

I’m kicking things off with a list of my favorite kickass Juliet moments. Fear not people suffering from quadrangle fatigue, I’m saving all shippy moments (or moments I consider shippy) for another list. This is just pure, unadulterated Juliet love. I included clips when I could find them on that scary labyrinth that is youtube.
