â€œThey found the plane. There were no survivors. They were all dead.â€
A very nice Lost episode this week. My expectations were not too high, since I never did care too much for the Jin and Sun back story, but I was pleasantly surprised by this episode. Their flash backs were very well done and acted, and their history was given an interesting twist as we learned that it was Sun who got Jin into the ‘mob’ job for her father. He was actually given a regular job as floor manager. We also learn that she actually did sleep with that other guy that killed himself, if anyone had still doubts about that.
SQPN has launched a new podcast named ‘The Secrets of the Lord of the Rings‘. I haven’t listened to it yet, but it looks very promising, since their previous Secrets of (Harry Potter and Pirates of the Carribbean) were very interesting as well.
â€œThe Secrets of the Lord of the Ringsâ€ is a thrilling audio podcast that takes listeners on a voyage through the mythological and religious themes that have made J.R.R. Tolkienâ€™s fictional work loved around the world.
Children of HurinIn the midst of the recent publication of Tolkienâ€™s posthumous â€œChildren of Hurin,â€ and the April launch of a worldwide online multiplayer game based on the world of Tolkienâ€™s â€œLord of the Rings,â€ the new podcast is launched at an exciting moment for fans of Tolkienâ€™s Middle Earth.
At least Catch 22 was an interesting episode, we did get to learn a bit more about Desmond. It wasnt a particularly spectacular or good episode, but it wasnt bad either. Desmond apparently lived in a monastery for some time, after he left a girl ‘at the altar’. And once he got ‘fired’ from the monastery he meets Penny.
Set up a site to post my experiences in Lord of the Rings Online. Also handy to get some Drupal skills :-). It’s not the easiest CMS system out there but it works very nice, once you start to get the general idea, it’s highly customizable and very flexible as well, which also makes it a bit harder to get into !
Excellent episode of Lost this week. We see how Juliet arrives on the island, and is manipulated by Ben to stay on the island. As we learn now, there is a fertility problem on the island and that’s why she has been brought in.
The footage shown of the ‘outside world’ was interesting. Several news stations broadcasting about the missing plane. And ofcourse a little clip of Juliet’s sister with her son. Was the cancer really back or did Ben change the files in order to keep Juliet on the island ?
A bit of a slow start to the second half of season 6. So far season 6 has not been anything to write home about and this episode sort of continued that tradition 😉 . Basically we only see Tony and his wife, Bobby and Janet (who has put on some extra weight it seems, and is more annoying than ever) hanging out, celebrating Tony’s birthday, fighting (not only verbal) and making a deal with some French Canadians.
Bobby has to wack a guy in order to get a sweeter deal with the Canadians, but it seems he does it rather sloppily and maybe it’ll come back to haunt him. He doesnt seem a happy guy once he returns to the family. Some funny moments:
– Christopher calling and wishing Tony a belated happy birthday, Tony immediately hangs up.
– Bobby after the fight getting into his car (who knows where he was planning on going) and backing into a tree 😆 .
– Tony going on and on about the fight and why he lost
