GateHouse — Right, like this wasn’t going to be a column about “Lost.” Because I thought, hey, you know what would be a good way to get read on the Internet today is to write about something other than “Lost.” So, I’m sorry, Lengthy And Reasoned Think Piece on Elena Kagan, you’ll just have to wait until next week, if we even still have a “Supreme Court” by then. (Rand Paul was just Step One, punks.)
That said, I don’t know thing one about “Lost,” other than what I learn in the post-show wrap-up that takes place in my office every week (which is everything, it’s going to be just crushing uncomfortable silence in that pod for like months now), but I do know this: the Internet is Hurley-thick with “Lost” right now, if it’s even on at all, and I’ll be damned if I’m going to miss out on the kind of Search Engine Optimization with this kind of rare, shared communal event. Lost Lost Lost Lost Lost come on someone email me with a book deal already.
So anywho, please enjoy The Internet’s Nine Millionth Collection Of Some Kind Of “Lost” List Or Live-Blog Or Whatever this week, which is awesome, because watching TV and writing about it is SO MUCH EASIER than coming up with a real column idea. (To be fair, I did watch six minutes of the eight-day pre-show, in which I learned that the show was created by David Cross and Tom Waits.) Note, of course, that the following is pretty well lousy with hot spoiler action, so if you haven’t seen the show yet, you’ll want to not read this, nor turn on the Internet, nor talk to any other humans.
