no spoilers unless i say so, so don't worry...
Lost is back! I'm up to ep 4... The first 3 seemed quite samey to me, and I'm a bit annoyed how they focus on certain characters, like Daniel, to the detriment of people like Charlotte and Miles, who I'm equally interested in. Ep 4 seemed better to me, because the settings were more varied. But that ending...woah...a blind monkey could see that one coming.
Battlestar - I'm up to Friday's ep - ep 14, so please don't read on if you haven't seen it, as spoiling Battlestar is a criminal offence...
Anyway, it's been a cracking set of episodes so far, made even more cracking by the fact that these are the series' final 10 eps, so people will die (and they are dying!)!
Was very upset by the death at the end of the latest ep - mainly because he wasn't all that bad, and it was so brutal. I think they really wasted two characters on a fairly strange, almost throwaway ending.
As a fan of one of the killed characters - that was so cruel...! I think we were kinda led to believe that his wound was getting infected, so he'd die anyway - but no, even as he faced the firing squad, he said himself, that his would felt better! Nooo! Really hard to stomach.
Oh and - okay, so how come those two guys face that awful fate - and yet Baltar is still alive!!! Baltar helped kill hundreds! Plus Gaeta helped the humans out on that planet in season three.
And I think the writers are manipulating us a bit. The latest storyline pictures the Cylons as saints and the rebel humans as evil. Well come on, the Cylons are still killers - look at Tori, who murdered the Chief's wife.
Final thought on Battlestar - it's a funny old show. Some characters seem to just do nothing! When was the last time Sharon did anything interesting? Baltar has been really dull for ages. Quite a lot of expendable characters, I think.
