TV Catch Up with tVCabbage…Lost
After the big Justin Sullivan and Dean White gig I had the dubious pleasure of getting up at 5am on a Monday morning to catch the final ever double episode of Lost. Now, I didn’t want to get up at 5am but in order to avoid all the inevitable spoilers and to participate in the after Lost discussions I thought that rather than spend the day avoiding all mention of Lost everywhere from the internet, newspapers, the radio and, especially, other Lost fans, especially at work I was inevitably backed into a corner and forced, like the rest of the world, to watch it at the same time as everyone else. Sky+ing it however enabled me to get up at 6.15am, skip all the ads and be out of the house by 8am and on the way to work as usual. After everyone at work was forced to attend a 5S’s seminar the other week this week at work had been designated “the great cleanout” and staff were put to work, er, cleaning the buildings up and throwing away everything. I, naturally, having done all my cleaning, spend most of the day on various Lost chat forums discussing the finer points of religious symbolism, time loop paradoxes and how Hurley never seemed to get any thinner despite being Lost on a moving island in the middle of the ocean.
