Everybody knows I don’t watch much TV. Conveniently now, if something is good, it will be available on DVD. I can watch the shows on my schedule and don’t have to wait that maddeningly long week to see the resolution to a cliff-hanger. I also don’t have to waste my life watching commercials.
Now ABC offers me something better – I’m stuck watching annoying commercials again, but I no longer have to pay for the DVDs…that’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make. And the commercial breaks are limited to a required 30 seconds. Many commercials actually run a few seconds longer, but out of spite, I make a point of clicking the “Continue” button as fast as I can, even if only to cut off the last second of a commercial. (We all knew I was bitter, so let’s move on.)
Back on track, I started watching Lost in Taiwan, but my interest dipped when they started building the raft in the latter half of the first season. Now, my roomie, looking for a buddy to watch season 4 of Lost with, has got me hooked on watching the old episodes of Lost, so as to catch me up. I’m so horribly addicted, I’ve watched about two seasons worth of episodes in the past few days.
Now I’m so addicted that I’m starting to think about covering my cereal boxes with black and white Dharma Initiative labels. Or I could do it to my roomie who got me into this…a fitting revenge…I think I’ve got a project for next weekend…
[As usual, I am not the first to have this geeky idea]

Locke: “Where do you get electricity?”
Ben: “We have two giant hamsters running in a massive wheel at our secret underground layer.”

“No offense, dude, but, far as super powers go, yours is kinda lame.”
- Hurley, addressing Desmond
“Don’t recognize it? Fell out of the purple haze… We don’t play every 108 minutes, the island’s gonna explode.”
- Sawyer, regarding the newly acquired ping pong table
…and anything involving Sawyer giving an offensive nickname…the names are sinfully hilarious.
