    Re: LOST: Season 3

    McFarlane toys is releasing "Lost" action figures.

    http://www.spawn.com/toys/series.aspx?series=318

    I'm thinking I might have to pick up a Kate figure. I'm thinking I might get in trouble for buying the Shannon figure.

    Yeah, if you consider that a "toy," you've got some issues.

    Re: LOST: Season 3

    Ecko was one of my favorites. I really don't know how that bettered the story line at all. Sometimes I wonder if the writers of Lost are competant at laying out a well executed plot. My next guess as to a character to die will be Bernie, Rose's husband, because unless I am mistaken he is the only tail section castaway left. Ana Lucia's death last year was mainly to get rid of the actress, not to better the story, because she was a loose cannon. They did not want her back this season.

    Further annoying the process is the decision to "promote" background survivors that we see along the beach to regulars, like Nikki and Paulo. We knew that they were there before, but now suddenly we are supposed to invest some level of caring into their characters? I figured that Nikki was the proverbial "red shirt" going on the away mission, from StarTrek fame. Yet Ecko is the one that gets offed, and now we have the Smoke monster racing to the front as a new enemy, and cyclops watching them from another hatch somewhere on the island.

    Re: LOST: Season 3

    Shorty before seeing the episode, I was wondering what had happened to our smoky friend. Guess we know now.
    Those action figures look amazing - but what else does one expect from McFarlane Toys. I've always been impressed by their work, though the only ones I have are from Yellow Submarine.

    I also noticed that all of the "Tailies" have died except Bernie. Not a good omen for him.

    I agree with your opinion of "promoting" background characters. It didn't feel natural. Actually it reminded me a bit of the Simpsons episode where they were mocking TV shows for adding new characters to shake things up.

    Finally I will miss Eko. I really enjoyed his character and amazed that he will no longer be around. Shocking.

    Re: LOST: Season 3

    I'm hoping at some point they reveal that Nikki / Paulo are infiltrated other Others (not part of Ben's group), which would justify them introducing them as more main characters.

    Re: LOST: Season 3

    Is my memory failing me, or is the thing which killed Ecko the first blatantly supernatural event? Walt's mysterious appearances, and the appearances of other characters up until now could all be passed off as psychological events. The polar bear is messed up, but it's at least somewhat reality based. This was just kind of "umm, wtf?"
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Re: LOST: Season 3

    The only thing I got out of Eko's death, other than him coming to terms with his past, was that the black smoke is now luring people out. From what I gather, the black smoke can make you "see things." This time around, the black smoke was around when Mr. Eko was "seeing" his brother and others from his past. I got the impression that the black smoke had lured him out into the jungle in order to get rid of him. Then his final words to lock implied that the black smoke was going to start luring the rest of them out, I assume one by one.

    Maybe Mr. Eko's death will be the driving force behind discovering what exactly that black smoke is.

    Nikki and Paulo seem like a pair of dorks who finally got invited to go to the high school party with the cool kids. It's only a matter of time before we see them driving the homecoming queen home in Jake Ryan's Porsche.

    Locke said what he saw was light (heavenly) while Eko saw and was taken by the dark ..his demons finally got him.

    Re: LOST: Season 3

    A couple of thoughts

    If the island can cure Locke's back, and Rose's cancer why does Ben have a tumor on his back, threatening his life?

    The smoke monster is obviously what killed the Pilot in the pilot episode. I think the smoke monster has been there all along, and appears to the castaways as their inner demons. My guess is that Hurley (looney bin imaginary friend), Kate (horse), Jack (his father), any time Walt was sighted, are all examples of when Smokey has been present.

    If the Others make camp on another island, how did Ethan run through the Jungle to make it to the crash site?

    If Desmond is able to see the future, why didn't he see Ecko's untimely demise?

    Has anyone on the island started wearing tattered clothing or gone unshaven, or without a haircut?

    Re: LOST: Season 3

    My wife, who is not a fan of the show she makes me watch Nip/Tuck in order to watch Lost, also thinks the beards and such are a little much. 71 days in there are going to be a lot of guys who have some serious growth working.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
