Okay, so this week's Lost was pretty good. Funny how that generally seems to happen when Jack is pushed to the margins, doesn't it? We got good progress on the Adebisi's Others front. Hurley's flashbacks were actually quite entertaining, even if the underlying message was horribly underwhelming (you mean money changes people??). But of course, it wouldn't be an episode of Lost these days without an excruciatingly drawn out and increasingly stupid plot line designed to waste some time so we can stretch the season's storyline out.
Because, seriously: Hurley spends the entire episode trying not to be the guy in charge of the food – to the point of wanting to blow the food up with dynamite – when all he had to do was hand the damn reigns over to someone else! God. "But Locke said he couldn't!" Look. Locke aint the boss of anyone, much less Hurley, and if the big man was so insistent on not being Food Guy, to the point that he was willing to blow shit up with dynamite, then maybe his little rebel streak could have included giving effing Charlie a key to the food room and let the hobbit distribute the grub. And this wasn't even the subplot! This was the main plot. Damn. As if last week wasn't irritating enough with the "you push the button," "no, YOU push the button" stuff.
In other, better, TV-related news, Veronica Mars was pretty killer last night. Although that chick-ass slap fight that went down between Logan and Duncan may have unintentionally been the funniest moment of the season so far.
