Lost

Episode 12 – Leon the professional the DIRECTORS CUT!

This week the Upodcast team will astound you guys by talking about a Flying car (Ya, that’s right)!!!A documentary entitled Why We Laugh and finally the LOST iPhone 4G!! PLUS our special guest for the evening Mr. Ali; no connection to Ali’s “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee“, although in his head he is!!

We also have a full review for Leon the professional; Kick back and enjoy while you see Jean Reno take on the world with his mini arsenal that he has wrapped around him throughout the film, needless to say a film like such can only come out from Luc Besson’s intense imagination! Let’s not forget Natalie Portman, at 16 years old going in a film with Jean Reno, now is that not the dream of any 16 years old to act with Mr. LEON! Last but not least the one and only Gary Oldman who ROCKED his role!

Check out the trailers and full episode to stream or download after the jump!

Saturday rant – I’m Lost

Slightly tired and recovering after a “few” beers from last night I realise the Friday rant is overdue…So following from Asim’s blog about Lost; the show now gets my own treatment.

What started out in the first two seasons as something quite novel and intriguing rapidly went downhill pretty much as soon as (in the UK at at least) it started to be shown on Sky TV rather than Channel 4. This switch and my inability to keep following the show revealed to me that you know what…it ain’t actually that good. Certainly not good enough to get me to a) get a Sky subscription or b) even spend time downloading it or c) definitely not buying the DVDs.

The main reason I, ahem, lost patience was nothing to do with the polar bears, the hatch, the timer or even the existence of the others. These are all good things. It was knowing that after 2-3 seasons, it was never going to get better for the remaining 4 or so seasons. Not a snowball in hell’s chance of maintaining decent writing, plot, intrigue and or mystery.

And this is a common bug for me – why do execs believe shows can run and run (see Rant passim Two and half men)? The notion that you can spin out a show like Lost with engaging ideas for that long is just plain wrong and I knew this as soon as I heard it was 7 seasons: inevitably, the show would have to more crap as more episodes came out and the plot became thinner and thinner. Inexorably the plot turned slowly and surely into a sci-fi show, which given the promise shown early doors is frankly a cop out worthy of the Dallas writers getting away with Bobby Ewing walking out of the shower. It was all just a dream…yeah right.

College Humour: Lost writers need your help!

I’m fully on board of the Lost– train whilst it breezes by to it’s (probably unstatisfying) conclusion. I’m not used to watching a show  episode as I just can’t muster up the patience. So I usually just wait for the whole season to end and watch it in one go.
 
But Lost is that one exception.
Since I am up to speed with season 6, I am also rewatching from season 3 just after season 2 which for me was where most people fell off.
Whilst watching season 3 I have learnt to live with the idea that there is now way Lost will answer all of our questions.
But whatever happens, it’s going to be a interesting ride.
 
I came across this pretty funny clip from the guys at College Humour.
