Meeemp! is the sound the alarm makes

I once said that Lost is like reading the first 3 chapters of 10 different books, then going back 6 months later and reading 17 random pages from 5 of the books. What do you do with the other 5 books? (the story started with 10 remember?) You lose those books for at least a year.

(I’d like to point out at this point that I’ve used several numbers in this post. Before you call the feds, I’ve done my research and 3, 10, 6, 17, 5, 5, and 10 are not illegal when used in that order. Some numbers ARE illegal. Be careful.)

Ok so here we are at least a year and a half later, and you find those remaining five books. You pick up on those where you left off low those many months ago. You remember what was going on in those chapters, (sort of) but you’ve basically lost interest (lost…get it?). One of the guys in the 3rd book (of the 2nd set of 5) turns out to be the same guy that caused this one guy from the 4th book (of the first set of 5) to loose his job, and thus go home, get drunk and beat his kids. Who did those kids turn out to be? Fuck you, that’s who.

And scene.

UPDATE 5/27/07

Damn you Henry Ian Cusick and your acursed ambiguous accent! A pox on you! A reader pointed out that Demond is supposed to be Sottish, not Irish. Two comics in and I’ve already issued a retraction. Thanks to Adam Y.

  1. Man, I don’t want to sound like a fanboy here, but isn’t Des supposed to be Scottish?

    I can understand the mistake though. Despite being Irish and living near the Scottish border I have yet to hear an accent quite like his. I mean, it’s all over the place. The last episode I watched his accent seemed to be embarking on a world tour.

    You might be on to something. I always assumed he was Irish in origin because his accent sounds anything but Scottish. From time to time he sounds plain English which confuses things further.

    IMDB says Henry Ian Cusick’s parents are Scottish and Peruvian.

    Lostpedia lists Desmond as being from both Scotland (though he was in the Scottish Military it doesnt say if he was born there) and Essex, England, where he lived with Penny.

    Maybe I should change the comic?

    Picard was supposed to be a Frenchman, so anything is possible.
