I'm watching (re-watching, in my case) Season 4 of Lost with The Princess, who is still looking for a new blog nickname, by the way, and we have a few questions:
Why do the writers of Lost associate the character Kate so closely with Patsy Cline's music? I'm very fond of Patsy and not so fond of Kate, and I don't see Kate as a Patsy-like, ill-fated, good-souled genius.
Despite all that, why do I like her with Sawyer? Is it possible I just like Sawyer SO much that any scene with him in it is good?
Or is their very simple and beautiful musical theme? (Which you could call "The SKater's Waltz," I suppose, though maybe not.)
Does it amuse you to know that I am a bit obsessed with this show, despite its lack of overt religious themes? (Those are usually my excuse for watching things.)
How can Aunt Zelda, who we love, be so hateful as Kate's mom?
Could we be more tired of John Locke?
And could we be more immediately fond of Daniel Faraday?
And, really, this is not a question, but since we said these would be questions, could there be two people prettier than Jin and Sun?
Sawyer is a good bad guy; Jack is a bad good guy. What's your type?
Wait! Is that Kate's music, rather than Skate's? Isn't it playing while she's with Jack? (It's still pretty. That's not a question. I wish I didn't like it if it's Kate music.)
Why did they even bother to shoot an episode with neither Sayid nor Desmond?
If you don't watch, is it possible you're still reading?
And, finally, why did they have to use a time conundrum? I hate that. In the immortal words of Kathryn Janeway: "Time travel. From my first day on the job as captain I promised myself
I'd never let myself get caught up in one of these God-forsaken
paradoxes. The future's the past, the past is the future. It all gives
me a headache." I fear this is only going to get worse, but I think anyone who knows me can predict, I will keep watching.
