if you haven't watched lost yet, don't read this

dear boyfriend,
please don't come upstairs before lost is over because it is most assuredly true that you will walk in right at a part where something so completely wacky and unexplainable is happening that i will have to listen to you make fun of it for the rest of the night. i don't know what the big black cloudy stupid thing is. no, it isn't a bunch of cartoon bees. i don't know why it can pick him up and throw him against trees. but you don't get to make fun of it!!! even though that part was lame and totally retarded, it's still my show that i love and adore. i am emotionally invested in this show, which is why the moment you start your heavy breathing or sighs of "this show is so unrealistic and stupid how can you watch it?" i get defensive. my show. MINE. you stay downstairs until it's over and i'll let you enjoy being married to me.


dear lost,
please don't ever give me an hours worth of backstory on a character before killing them off again. you wasted my time last night. apart from about 2 minutes of really good stuff, you have me all into this person's life and basically things i already knew (from the previous backstory on him) and then you toss him into trees and have him die!!! why did i have to know all of this stuff about him? WHY? i feel jipped. and just think about how i'll feel after you go on hiatus until like january or february or whatever it was that i read. your scheduling pisses me off. and well, that's all i have to bitch about for now.

Wow, you take your "Lost" pretty seriously, huh? :)

LOL, I hate when my husband does the big sighs too....like during Sex and the City or some reality show.

I especially hate when I'm watching a show and he starts talking to me...then he gets mad that I'm not "interacting" with him and I'm being antisocial.

He's such woman.

so reminds me of the time I walked into the room when Frank was watching Alias and Jennifer Garner was wearing this skimpy little undergarment complete with garter belt, etc and I thought that was what the entire series was about. He kept trying to explain that she had never been dressed like that in any other series. YEAH RIGHT!!!! Then when I watch Extreme Makeover: Home Edition he walks around the house going "Oh my God!!! Oh my God!!!" mimicking the people who have just seen their new homes. Yes, some things are sacred.

Oh no! I didn't watch Lost yet but I couldn't not read it. Luckily I skimmed this post instead of really reading it, but I am guessing someone dies. I bet I'll have the same feelings about it as you do though. At least my husband watches with me and gets totally into it too so I don't have to explain it to anyone.

BTW I just saw - Where Olives Belong on Fingers! LOLOLOLOLOLOL

don't watch lost...sorry.

I don't watch 'Lost' (don't hate me) so I can't completely relate, but I take my 'ER' viewing very seriously. Nobody who wants to keep their tongues gets to utter a word.

LOL! I don't watch. I never got into it and now that all this strange and unrealistic stuff is happening - it's too late for me lol.

I am laughing hysterically!! I get the same thing when I watch some sappy love story and Chef says "oooooh is that romantic???? Is that what ROMANCE is???? Are you going to CRY?" I wanna slap him because YEAH, I'M GONNA CRY!

Melissa said...

Hmmm, I can't stand when people diss my show either. At least wait until I'm DONE watching it.

I don't watch lost though, so I ahve no clue what you are talking about.

Geez, it's like we were the same person last nite. My hubby used to watch Lost, but got "lost" after he missed several episodes and no longer watches.
Now he does the same thing, with walking in trying to talk to me when I.am.watching.lost. Sheesh!
Seriously, what was that? I think maybe the black cloud is the death cloud. It always appears when people are about to die. Was that his brother at the end he was talking to? I am soo trying to keep up with this show. It must be my hubby's fault! Or boyfriends...LOL!

jen said...

seems like everyone on the net is talking about Lost today! i've never even seen the show. now i feel like i'm missing something

chirky said...

exactly the reason we stopped watching: the gaps between episodes.

(LOST is totally great on DVD, though.)

Dustin said...

you're right on both notes

I've watched every episode since the beginning and I actually stopped midway cuz it was a waste of a show. ( Instead I watched the departed which is PIMP )

that black smoke shit just has to go.

Suebob said...

OMG I had the same problem with Mr Stapler. He would come downstairs and yelp "What the hell IS THIS CRAP?" about whatever show I was watching (usually some terrible reality show that I KNEW was crap).

Then he wouldn't shut up. He would go ON and ON and ON.

So I learned to do this: find the most boring documentary or BBC news. Then flip to my reality show. When I heard him coming, flip to the documentary. He would come in, get bored in 1 minute and leave. Voila - peace.

Meena said...

Oh, I could totally write that letter to many friends who rag on the show!!!

margalit said...

I had to think about it for a while, but the I GOT the backstory and why they did it that way. It's all on my blog, and I'm not going to repeat it all here, so come and take a look and let me know if it makes more sense to you now.

Mrs. Chicky said...

I was so pissed off that they killed him off. WTF?? And why should i care about his story if he's freakin' dead?! Gah!!

Anonymous said...

Just because he's dead doesn't mean he's gone. He'll probably show up in visions, et cetera, for the rest of the season.

Jammer said...

I don't think point sucks at spelling, just typing. :)
