No links today (sorry... there really just aren't enough UGA stories being written for daily links, so I'll probably scale back to 2-3 days a week for a while), but I wanted to pass along this interview 960 the Ref did with former UGA wide receiver Damien Gary, who is now a teacher and coach at Clarke Central. It's a good discussion.
Also, anyone have any thoughts on last night's "Lost" finale?
I won't give too much away for those still waiting to watch it on DVR, but I will say I was both excited and a bit dismayed about the plot twists.
A few thoughts:
-- The Rose & Bernard thing was lame. I liked the message they tried to get through, but I liked them as characters, and it seemed to me (although I could be wrong), that the way that was handled was a bit of a cop out.
-- I though that the ongoing plotline of last night's episode was interesting, but it seemed kind of forced to me -- like an idea that the writers had two weeks before writing it that had no precedent.
-- The whole plot of the past three episodes -- that the past could be changed -- makes no sense. It's the inherent logical falacy of time travel. If you go back in time to prevent a series of events from happening, then you also prevent the events that lead you to go back in time in the first place. It's a paradox that cannot be resolved, and I feel like that's just been ignored in favor of furthering the story.
And that has been my problem with this season. Ridiculous stuff always happened on this show, but I never felt like I had to ignore it in order to enjoy the show. It always followed some sort of "rule." This year, I feel like I've had to not ask a lot of questions in order to stay involved in the story, and that's the opposite of what had always made the show so good. It wanted you to ask questions. (For example, as pointed out by a reader, how is Helloise pregnant 30 years in the past with Daniel, yet in the scenes set in 2004, he looks like he's about 40?)Having said all that, it was a tense two hours, and after the final scene, my first thought was still... nine more months before I get to find out what happened?!? So I'm still excited about next season, but I definitely think this was my least favorite season of the show by far.
