The Quick and the Dead
The Diva is Nelson Branco. April Fool's!
The Diva is so glad that so many of my faithful fans found my joke amusing. I can't wait until next year! Anyway, I had an exorcism today to get rid of all the Douchebag character out of my system. I posted as The Douchebag in the comments section too yesterday. Good times!
Before I blog about Lost, I just wanted to say something about the comments from readers. First off, I delete any comments mentioning someone's real name. That's not cool, and it's stalkerish. If you have a problem with someone, deal with them on your own time elsewhere. Second, the Diva haters need to give up on this "strategery" of giving me phony advice which is just censorship. The Diva is not worried about being sued by anyone. The Diva is not politically correct, so deal with it. The comments by others are not politically correct either. If you prefer a blog sanitized of anything that is politically incorrect, then go elsewhere. The point of the Diva blog is for me to express myself without erratic moderation by others. If you prefer moderated comments, then go elsewhere.
Back to more important stuff like Lost last night. It was dull and predictable. Didn't we all figure out that Sawyer was whispering about Clementine? Didn't we all know Kate gave Aaron to his grandmother who just happened to be in LA? I'm surprised that Sawyer admitted that he jumped off the helicopter because he didn't want to commit to Kate. That didn't ring true to me. But he has finally matured into a normal relationship with Juliet. The human ping pong Kate is actually man-less for the first time. Was it just me or was Ben's daddy interested in Kate? I'm glad they finally humanized Ben's dad a little.
At first I blamed Jack for Ben going to the Others. But since Juliet, Kate, and Sawyer didn't tell him they were giving Ben to the Others, he's getting a pass from me. It's amazing to see Jack's que sera, sera attitude. He seems to be going from one extreme to the other but is still making mistakes by not acting at all. I don't get how Juliet, Kate, and Sawyer didn't see how they were molding Ben into being Ben by giving him to Richard. Richard took him to the temple. Finally, we'll get to see what that is all about. Did anyone catch all the names Richard rattled off that needed to decide about Ben? All I caught was Widmore.
The Diva really did enjoy the Hurley/Miles debate. I love it when shows put the fans' speculations in an episode. I'm leaning towards the Losties not being able to change the future at all. Or you can say they had a hand on how things ended up in 2003-2004.
Next week looks like it will be the eppy of the year. Ben gets judged. Who doesn't want to see that? I loved watching Ben squirm when he saw undead John Locke watching him. There's two excellent actors who would never get hired on DOOL because of age and looks as we said in our earlier Lost discussion. I love Michael Emerson (Ben.) Ben's a fascinating character, but I still want Locke to shoot him and then strangle him.
Is it just me, or was Ana Lucia in the previews? The Diva can't wait!
Anyway, I hope you guys had a great laugh yesterday. The Diva is back!
