Lost - 02/25

This episode was all about John Locke. It was an okay episode, it did answer some questions.

We start off with Cesar (the guy that talked to Jack at the airport) digging in an office and looking at files. Then come Ilena (the girl that was escorting Sayid) and she tells him there's a guy in a suit that wasn't on the plane. They go to the beach and John Locke is alive and on the island. Then we flash to him landing in the dessert with the broken leg. He lays there calling for help but no one comes. Finally a truck pulls up and loads him in the back and bring him to a doctor. They re-set his leg and he passes out. He wakes up and Charles Widmore is next to his bed. He tells him that he remembers meeting him when he was 17. Then he tells him it's been 3 years since the oceanic six came back. He also tells him that he will help him bring them back because he cares about the island's well being. Widmore gives Locke a fake ID and his new name is Jeremy Bentham. T…

I did it

In my attempt to start reading Wizard's First Rule (Sword of Truth Series by Terry Goodkind), I have read two books in a little over a week. Crazy huh? I read The Time Traveler's Wife, which I finished Monday. So then I dropped it off at the library on Monday and picked up From Dead to Worse and I just finished that today. So I am once again stopping at the library to drop off that book and pick up Wizard's First Rule. Not to mention The Time Traveler's Wife was a little over 500 pages and From Dead to Worse is about 375 pages. Wizard's First Rule is about 500 pages. I've head that the series is really good so I'm excited to be reading it. So now I'm off to the library!

Heroes - 02/23

Last night's Heroes was all about Noah. I didn't think it was that great of an episode and I still don't know if Noah is good or bad. I think good, but not sure.

So we start out with Matt, Mohinder & Peter interrogating Noah. This is done by Matt going into Noah's mind. Through several flashbacks we see that Noah was supposed to retire. Angela gives him a big fat check and a nice watch as a gift. He doesn't want to retire because the Company is all he's ever known. We also see another flashback where Nathan approaches him and wants him to work for him. He says it's the only way to keep Claire safe. We also see another flashback where he tells Mohinder about Nathan's plan and asks for his help. Also we meet the Hunter and it shows his relationship with Noah. The Hunter is not very trusting of Noah.

We find that there is a storage unit that Noah keeps with weapons and files. Peter flies there to retrieve things. It is under surveillance and…

Too Many Books, Too Little Time

Do you ever want more time in your day? I do, but it's mostly so I can read books. There are so many books out there that I want to read. I want to take a whole week off of work and read, scrapbook and crochet! Too many things to do. I'm currently reading The Time Traveler's Wife, which is a very good book. I actually think I mentioned it last post I did. I'm still reading it, it's over 500 pages and I'm about halfway through it. At the library waiting for me is the 8th Southern Vampire book, From Dead to Worse. That I think is a little less that 300 pages, which is nothing. After I'm done reading that one I have to wait until May when the 9th book comes out. Also my sister-in-law was telling me to watch Legend of the Seeker, and I found out that it's based on The Sword of Truth Series by Terry Goodkind, which was already on my list of books to read. So I watched the first episode and I LOVE it! But I want to read the books, which the first…

Books into Movies

I found this interesting article about books being turned into movies. I agree that there are many books out there that are absolutely great and when the movies comes out it is awful. Whenever a book I have read turns into a movie I tell myself not to be disappointed. Movies cannot capture the story as well and some things have to be changed in order to make a movie interesting. Take for example Twilight, would you really have wanted to watch Bella make dinner for Charlie over and over again? There are many movie that were books that were not the same as the book but I still liked. Like Eragon, that movie was nothing like the book. Yet I still liked it. I tell myself that it was a movie based on the book. Meaning they took the main ideas from the book, a dragon rider and a dragon going to Ellesmera and him learning to use magic. But since they changed other things I try not to remember what it should have been from the book. Right now I'm reading The Time Traveler's…

Lost - 02/18

Last night's episode was all about The Oceanic Six.

We start with Jack waking up in the jungle wearing a suit. Just like in the series premiere. Except this time he is relieved to be back on the island. He find Hurley in the water and helps him out. Then he find Kate on conscious near some rocks. But where are Sayid, Sun & Ben? Then we flash to 46 hours earlier.

We are back in the church with Eloise Hawkings. She shows them to The Lamp Post Station (Dharma Initiative) and says that's how they originally found the island. She says she know where/when the island will be next and that they need to take a plane to Guam. Then she pulls Jack aside and tells him that he need to give Locke (dead in a coffin) something of his dad's. She gives him an envelope addressed to him from Locke. Then we cut to Jack having a drink at a bar and he gets a phone call. We see him visit an older guy and he calls him grandpa. His grandpa is always trying to run away and he says he'll help hi…

Heroes - 02/17

Heroes was good last night. Lots of Sylar, which I liked.

Sylar is still with Luke on the road to find his father. Luke won't tell him exactly where his father is and Sylar knows when he's lying. They stop at a diner and Luke uses his power. Sylar tells him that you don't use your power for fun and that you always have to have an objective. Luke then writes down and address for Sylar and tells him that's where his dad is. Sylar says that now he has no reason to keep Luke around. By then he notices that they are surrounded and tells Luke to head to the exit quietly. A gun is put to Sylar's head, the one place that will truly kill him. Luke pretends that he's scared and that Sylar was hurting him, causing a distraction and Sylar kicks butt. They head to the car and Sylar locks Luke out. Sylar gets away and Luke is captured. Then we see Sylar come back for Luke and a case and he gets Luke out. I knew he wouldn't leave him. So they head to find Sy…

Lost-02/11

Last night's episode was good and it revealed a few things that I was wondering about.

Jin is still with the French people. They find some kind of structure and one of their people falls in and the rest go after them. Jin insists that Danielle stay behind and she does. But as he's waiting to see what the others are doing he flashes. He's all alone and so he heads back to the beach. He sees a camp set up and sees two dead bodies (two of the french men). Then he says Danielle pointing a gun to her husband and she says he is sick and he's not the same and something happened to him. He talks her out of shooting him but then he goes and shoots her but his gun jams. So she shoots him in the head. Jin comes out and she freaks out even more and he runs into the jungle. There he meets Sawyer. He asks where Sun is and they tell him that they are trying to get to the Orchid station to bring them back. Since Charlotte speaks Korean she tells him everything.

Sawyer, Locke…

Wednesday Ramble

I realize I usually only post about TV shows or books. So I thought I'd make a post about what's been going on. Actually not much going on. I'm taking a Pilates class at the community center and it's a lot of fun and I really like it. The instructor is a lot of fun. I've been reading, but I think I've really slowed down since last month. I've been working on some crocheting projects, I'll get some pictures up soon. I'm making a princess doll and frog for O's birthday, which is less than a month away. Also Dan's school is having some competition and I'm making mittens for the prize. Also I'm going to make Link (as in from Zelda) for X's birthday, which is in June. I know it seems like a lot of time for me to get that done but I crochet slow. I also have some sewing projects waiting for me. So overall I'm busy. Not to mention all the scrapbook projects I need to do. I did get a new game for my DS. I got Professor…

Heroes - 02/09

Last night's episode was not that great. I have seen better episodes. Also we had the presidential new conference, which I watched some of it. But Chuck was not on because of it.

We start out with the plane crash. They show the scene with Peter absorbing Tracy's power and then making the plane crash. Then we see Nathan freaking out because some of the Heroes have escaped. And those of course would be the main characters. Peter is running and Tracy is also running with him. They talk and Peter says he has to see Nathan because he's behind all this. Then we learn that Peter's new ability is only to absorb one power at a time and he looses that power once he absorbs a new one. The way he absorbs it is by touching that person. Tracy calls Nathan and wants to meet with him. They meet and he doesn't come alone. Peter takes Nathan's power and flies away. Tracy is captured and she tells Nathan "You're one of us!"

Matt is running with Mohinder …

Lost - 02/04

Charlotte was still passed out when the show starts. Daniel tries to explain to Juliet that it's like really bad jet lag and that it depends on how long they had been on the island. So that's telling me that Charlotte was on the island before, which they had already hinted at. Which also makes me wonder why Daniel is not being affected since we saw him on the island in like the 70s. But then Miles starts getting a nose bleed and he says he's never been on the island. Which then made me think that maybe he was the baby of that Dr, the one that does those training videos. We saw him feeding a baby and hey, Miles is also Asian! They're still skipping through time. Locke says they need to get to the Orchid station. They think they can get to the boat (the Zodiac) and go around the island. Sawyer sees Kate delivering Claire's baby and then it flashes and she's gone. They get to the beach and the Zodiac is gone but there are other weird boats. So they tak…

Heroes - 02/02

The show is back! It starts off a few months after the Villains chapter.

Tracy is living alone and no longer with Nathan. She also gets taken and her powers don't work on their uniforms. They cover her hands and get her unconscious. They do however show one of the men's face.

Hiro does not have his power but Ando still does. Hiro is helping Ando with his power and he's trying to turn him into a superhero that fights crime. I loved the costume he had picked out for him. He had a red lightning bolt on everything. A motorcycle and helmet. Hiro also put a GPS tracking chip in both himself and Ando. The password is only known to Hiro. He said it was someone important to him, which I figured it was Ando and I don't know why it took Ando so long to figure that out. But Hiro gets taken and Ando has to figure out the password and where Hiro is.

Claire is living with Angela and picking out colleges. She apparently got a GED so she could start college. She thinks that Sylar is still…

TONIGHT!!

It's been FOREVER but tonight they're back! Chuck is on at 7pm. I really like that show, it's pretty funny. Actually pretty much all the characters on that show are good, except I think his sister. I don't care too much for her, she's just kind of blah. Then at 8pm is Heroes. I'm so excited! I saw the commercial for it yesterday and it looks like it will be good this season. I hope to see all of the cast members use their powers and some butt kicking! Then after Heroes is Medium at 9pm. I watched this show on and off for the last few seasons but I really started watching it a lot last season. It's a good show and I think Patricia Arquette does a good job portraying Allison Dubois. And her husband is good too. I love the little girl in it too, I don't remember her name but she's the middle child. She's so funny. So that is my night. Oh and Chuck is in 3-D and I got my glasses. I went to Target on Saturday and picked some up. The…
