Post Beach Party
In all, it was a pretty decent party 😀 Mass loads of barbecued food, a gigantic fire, a butt-load of drinks and awesome company. Just a shame I got myself a bit bummed out and left early. Never mind, it won’t happen next year.
Still, today I managed to catch up with lots of programs that I haven’t seen in a while. 4od’s new watch on the fly service helped me to see the entire season of “The Inbetweeners” which was actually really good and surprisingly funny. Had a pretty good soundtrack too. You should check it out if you are fans of skins, as I think it has the same kind of humour – the dialogue is especially quick and witty.
I also managed to squeeze in the second part of season 4 of LOST – don’t worry I won’t spoil anything. Just that for everyone who thinks that the show has jumped-the-shark, I think you were a bit impatient. Yes it does ask a lot of questions, and rarely answers any, but if you are a fan that likes to get involved, sites like lostpedia.com and lost-forum.com will tide you over and possibly answer some of your questions. Besides that, it’s the nature of JJ Abrams creations to have a level of curiosity and mystery about them to drive the viewers imaginations – I have heard the story of how he won a mystery box as a prize when he was in school, and he was so mesmerised by it, he still hasn’t opened it to this day. Some think this is cool, and others don’t – I think it’s a bit silly. Which is also probably why I hated his movie “Cloverfield“. For some strange reason though, I really really love LOST. The character development, themes, narrative, dialogue and to some degree the plot seem to have an attraction that so many shows and films lose these days to special effects and WOW-factors. Ben is just the most interesting villain in a show – I love his character, but hate him at the same time and it’s great.
