Lost and Channel 4
Well that was an enjoyable double episode of Lost last night. And only a three month wait till series two. Its weird to think that, after 24 hours of television, all they have managed to do is open a hatch, have a baby, make a ship and vegetable patch. But for some reason its still rewarding TV. This might be due to the acting as I can’t think of one character, maybe apart from 2-ep Hans, who has been inconsistent.
I can’t get into Invasion though. Its just trying a bit too hard to be Lost, without any of the charm, and I wont be watching any more of it. I hope Channel 4 didn’t pay too much for it.
Much better is My Name Is Earl. I’ve already ‘previewed’, ahem, the first 10 episodes and they are all well written peices of fine comedy with just the right balance of clever and dumb to hit both funny bones.
Ofcom had a go at Channel 4 as it revealed that each 65-minute episode contained just 36 minutes of new footage. It really is annoying that the show gets broken up so much but at the end of the day I’d rather watch these extra ads than have to subscribe to Sky to see high quality US programming.
Oh and here’s a link to the interesting Lost trailer for Channel 4.
