    Lost - The Full Series Thread

    Or the first weeping angels episode of Doctor Who . Or Gus getting his comeuppance in Breaking Bad. But yeah when Lost was good, it was fucking good.

    Lost - The Full Series Thread

    Pos'd because that was a fun post, but I don't have the same level of anger towards it that you do. I think it's because it was obvious to me from the start of season 3 (maybe earlier) that they were making it up as they went along. And they were never going to come up with an answer that was as satisfying as the mystery was intriguing. Particularly as I seem to remember the writers were pretty open about the fact that JJ Abrams had left the show after season one and no one he'd left behind really had any idea where he was going with it when he started.

    Lost - The Full Series Thread

    The actual mystery got so involved and disjointed that even though I am pretty sure I understood it all at the time, thinking back on it now I find it very hard to put it all together (a bit like the writing team did by the end, too, I guess). Moving the island? Did they move the island at some point? Was that what the "donkey wheel" did? The tribe that lived in the temple - they were the others weren't they? Who were different to the Dharma Initiative in the end. What was the giant statue of/ for in the end? I loved how they showed one shot of it right near the start of the series then you didn't see it again until they time travelled back to when it was intact. Hang on... Time travel ... How did that happen again? Seem to remember they came 'unstuck" and were zapping about all over the place for a while. What was the deal with Jim Robinson turning up again (apart from the fact there seemed to be an unwritten rule he had to pop up in every US big budget series at the time)? And yeah I also seem to remember season 2 being mostly filler - it started off with Desmond running away and then we didn't get any more of the main plot thread/mystery explained until he turned up again in the last episode, right? But in between there was all the "mystical" stuff with Locke and Echo , which was pretty fun but mostly turned out to be red herrings as far as the mystery was concerned. Classic TV. I think rather than watching it all again I'm going to read this thread from the beginning.

    Declining Sales. WTF Is Going On?

    Which contrary to what I just said, I bought physical (the only game I've done so in at least a year). Starting to think they get these sales figures by monitoring what I buy and extrapolating from there.

    Declining Sales. WTF Is Going On?

    I would 100% say this is down to digital sales. Most people I know exclusively buy digital now.

    Play Expo Manchester this weekend?

    You posting it here and saying it makes you uncomfortable is sort of slut shaming a bit, yeah ... unless I'm missing something?

    Lost - The Full Series Thread

    Never quite managed to get up the enthusiasm to re-watch Lost, even though at the time I probably thought it was the best ever TV series. Think it's because it was the underlying mystery that kept me motivated to sit through it all. Now I know how it turns out, I don't think I would find it anything like as entertaining or compelling on a second watch. Might start a petition to have the final season remade with a different ending.
  9. Wasn't there a somewhat popular petition calling for the most recent Star Wars trilogy to be scrapped and remade? The entitlement of some fans is hilarious.

    Lost - The Full Series Thread

    Yes it was, wasn't it? The "flashbacks" in the final series turned out to be set in the heavenly waiting room, or some such rubbish, didn't they?
  11. I wonder how they are going to get out of the hole they've dug for themselves that has left it looking like the next episode might be basically righteous white people defending their homeland against fanatical, invading brown people. As I can't see the Unsullied and Dothraki turning against Dani at this stage.
  12. I thought it was quite clever how they showed that the Mountain had the ability to shield people from falling rubble. Hence Clegainebowl actually played a part in the plot, rather than just being fan service. If the Hound hadn't turned up at that point and separated Cersei from Gregor, then Gregor could potentially have saved her (and Jamie) when the roof caved in on them.

    Konami 50th Anniversary Collection

    Why would they not put Symphony of the Night on the Castlevania collection? I thought it was generally agreed to be the best in the series (although it isn't my personal favourite). I can't see the logic of leaving it out.

    Sega Master System Essential Games.

    The Master System was basically our NES. Although I never owned either back in the day, I would have chosen the MS over the NES in a heartbeat at the time, as its games seemed much cooler . It was only when Super Mario 3 arrived that I realised that maybe Nintendo games were better in general. Up until then stuff like Golden Axe, Outrun and Double Dragon* seemed much more tempting than the likes of Duck Hunt and Enduro Racer. Yeah I know DD came out on the NES but I never knew this at the time, did it even get released here? Certainly noone I knew had it, whereas it was a must-have on the MS.

    'Dumpster diving' at the tip?

    Where do they sell it?
