Minority Opinion

In the face of all the outrage and complaining (and, frankly, bandwagon-jumping), I feel compelled to come out and take a stand.

That's right, I liked the Lost finale.

I'll admit that I was in the "The writers have no clue where this is going camp" at the beginning, but I really do think that they came up with a plan over the last few seasons. Admittedly, I was helped a lot by finding a place where there were lots of good ideas, and theories, and analysis. So, yeah, this season was fun for me, and I had a good handle on what was going on before Sunday, and I was pretty happy with the way they wrapped it all up.

But I know a lot of people weren't, so let me try to take on the common objections I've been hearing.

Which is a shame, because I think that while, sure, it has its flaws, there is a lot of good stuff in there too. Say what you want, but I like having a show that makes you think and has original ideas and plots, even if it falls short sometimes. Better that than another CSI or Law & Order variant. Or worse, some new horrible reality show.


This morning, I'm trying to sleep while my wife is in the other room entertaining the baby. All of a sudden I hear a scream from her.


Then I hear her say "That's AWESOME!!!". So, I breathe a sigh of relief, roll over, and try to get back to sleep, thinking that if something truly awesome happened (we're waiting for the baby to start crawling, to say a word (and know what it means), and similar things), she'd come get me.

Turns out, he got his first tooth. Well, not really, he has a rough spot on his gum where a tooth may or may not be coming in soon. So it's not even really a tooth. A "proto-tooth", I guess.

Needless to say, this does not fit my definition of "AWESOME!!!". Sure, it's cool that he's finally getting a tooth after months of what looked to be teething pains (but maybe weren't- who has teething pains 4 months before the tooth arrives?). But really, meh. It's just a tooth, you know? I'd be much more excited if he learned an actual skill.

Or maybe it's that, since he likes chewing on my nose, I'm in for a lot of pain in the near future..
