FAN PERCEPTION OF ANA-LUCIA CORTEZ

I have a confession to make. I did not watch the ABC series “LOST” from the beginning. In fact, I did not start watching the series until (2.02) “Adrift”, the सेकंड episode of Season Two. However, I could barely maintain interest in the show, until the Season Two episode, (2.04) “Everybody Hates Hugo”.

To be honest, there was nothing particularly special about that episode. But there was one scene that really made me sit up and notice. This scene featured a moment in which Tail Section survivor Ana-Lucia Cortez punched James “Sawyer” Ford....

TV TROPES AND MICHAEL DAWSON

While पढ़ना the TV TROPES site on Heroic BSOD for Live Action टेलीविज़न series, I read this passage about the Michael Dawson character from "LOST":

"Let's face it, Michael's death was the best thing that happened, because, well, his character wasn't all that useful, other than being an in-universe joke on why some people really shouldn't be parents.".

The लेख earlier made this टिप्पणी दे about the fans' reaction to Michael:

"While we're on the subject of Lost, let's mention Michael who might be the show's punching bag as he goes through the entire series stuck...

"LOST" प्रशंसकों ILLUSIONS ABOUT KATE AUSTEN

I just discovered that six years after ABC’s "LOST" left the air, many प्रशंसकों are still harboring illusions about the Kate Austen character. Why? Because she was portrayed द्वारा Evangeline Lilly, the show’s leading lady? Did Kate being the leading female character was a reason why so many made excuses for her mistakes and crimes? What exactly did Kate do? Well . . . let’s see:

*Murdered her stepfather Wayne Jensen, when she discovered that he was her real father. Apparently, she could not deal with the reality that she shared blood with him.

*In order...

"LOST": "KIDNAPPING A CHILD"

I was पढ़ना this लेख about the girl who had been kidnapped at 11 and found, 18 years later. And it made me think of the numerous child kidnappings that have occurred on "LOST":


*Ben Linus' kidnapping of Alex Rousseau, Danielle's infant daughter. Ben had kidnapped Alex when she was an infant, against Charles Widmore's orders. He pretended to be her father for sixteen years. Eventually, mother and daughter were finally able to reunite. But they were never able to enjoy their reunion, due to them both being killed द्वारा Charles Widmore's hired thugs within a few days....

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (2.10) "The 23rd Psalm"

During its six years on the air, "LOST" managed to earn five Emmy nominations for लेखन in a Drama Series. The series earned its सेकंड लेखन nomination for its Season Two episode called (2.10) "The 23rd Psalm".

Written द्वारा showrunners Carlton Cuse and Damon Lindelof, and directed द्वारा Matt Earl Beesley; "The 23rd Psalm" is the first "LOST" episode to explore the backstory of Tail Section survivor, Mr. Eko. The episode began several decades earlier, when guerilla fighters arrived at a small Nigerian village. The guerilla fighters are there to recruit...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (2.09) "What Kate Did"

Kate Austen has to be one of the most divisive characters on the ABC series, "LOST". The character has generated some very extreme reactions from the show's fans. The latter have either loved her या hated her. I had harbored a good deal of dislike toward Kate, myself for a long period. However, my dislike stemmed from the writers' handling of her character and a good number of the fans' attitude toward the mistakes and crimes she had committed. A good example of this attitude could be found in the general reaction to the Season Two episode called (2.09)...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (2.07) "The Other 48 Days"

I cannot deny that "LOST" will always be one of my चोटी, शीर्ष twenty (20) प्रिय टेलीविज़न series of all time. Nor can I deny that despite my feelings about it, the लेखन had been flawed on many occasions. If there is an episode that truly reflected my positive feelings about the series, it is the Season Two episode called (2.07) "The Other 48 Days".

This episode is probably my चोटी, शीर्ष प्रिय one in the entire series. Before "The Other 48 Days" aired, I had been watching "LOST" for at least a little over a month. In fact, (2.02) "Adrift" was the very...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (2.94) "Everybody Hates Hugo"

Unless I am mistaken, Season Two of "LOST" is not very लोकप्रिय with the show's fans. This season expanded on the Hatch (DHARMA हंस Station) subplot that was touched upon in the सेकंड half of Season One. This season introduced a tiresome running joke surrounding the Michael Dawson character. And it also featured the introduction of the survivors from Oceanic 815's Tail Section, which included the unpopular character, Ana-Lucia Cortez. In some way, the fourth episode - (2.04) "Everybody Hates Hugo" - seemed to be some kind of manifestation of...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (1.01-1.02) "The Pilot"

The pilot episode of some of my प्रिय टेलीविज़न series have rarely impressed me . . . if not at all. There are a few exceptions to the rule. And one of those exceptions happened to the be pilot episode for ABC-TV's "LOST".

Created द्वारा J.J. Abrams, Jeffrey Leiber and Damon Lindelof, "LOST" aired on टेलीविज़न for six seasons, between 2004 and 2010. As many प्रशंसकों know, "LOST" told about the survivors of a commercial passenger plane crash on a mysterious South Pacific island, while flying between Sydney and Los Angeles. While टेलीविज़न viewers got to...

"A DEADLY CHOICE"

One of the most emotionally devastating episodes that aired on ABC's "LOST" (2004-2010) turned out to be the Season Six episode, (6.14) "The Candidate". The episode marked a final turning point in the saga's main narrative. और importantly, it featured the deaths of three main characters who had been with the series since the beginning.

The fact that three long-standing characters met their deaths made "The Candidate" a topic of great वाद-विवाद द्वारा "LOST" fans. The fact that the three characters happened to be non-Western - Jin and Sun Kwon, along with Sayid Jarrah - added fuel...

Over five years ago, (4.10) "Something Nice Back Home", a Season Four episode of "LOST" aired for the first time and I wrote a review of the episode. After a new, हाल का viewing, I decided to write another लेख on the episode:


"LOST" RETROSPECT: (4.10) "Something Nice Back Home"

I am beginning to wonder if (4.10) "Something Nice Back Home", a Season Four episode from "LOST", might be one of the most misunderstood episodes of the series. When I recently viewed it for a सेकंड time in four years, I came to a realization that I may have misunderstood it.

"Something Nice Back Home" is basically...

SAWYER'S RANT IN "LOST" (2.16) "The Long Con"

In the Season Two episode of "LOST" called (2.16) "The Long Con", Jack ransacked Sawyer's tent for some painkillers that the latter had previously taken.In response to Jack's action, Sawyer decided to pull a con job on the castaways, in order to secure control of their guns. When Sawyer finally revealed his con job to the castaways, he कहा the following:

"That's right, Jack. He's as stupid as आप are. आप were so busy worrying about each other आप never even saw me coming, did you? How about आप listen up because I'm only going to say this once....

Below is an लेख I had written about the Season Five episode of "LOST" (2004-2010) called (5.09) "Namaste":


"LOST" RETROSPECT: (5.09) Namaste"

"Namaste" is a term used commonly on the Indian subcontinent that is used as a greeting and a parting valediction between individuals. I suppose that this word might be the proper शीर्षक for this ninth episode from Season Five from ABC's "LOST". (5.09) "Namaste" served as a crossroad for the series' fifth season. It served as a closure for some of the season's story arcs and a beginning for others.

The episode opened where the sixth episode, (5.06) "316"...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (3.18) "D.O.C."

The treatment of "LOST" characters Jin and Sun Kwon has generated a great deal of emotion and some disappointment for the प्रशंसकों of the series. I can understand why. The series' portrayal of the South Korean couple - especially during the last three seasons - has been pretty shaky. But once in a while, viewers were able to see an outstanding episode that featured the Kwons. And one of them happened to be the Season Three episode, (3.18) "D.O.C.".

Back in the Season Two episode, (2.16) "The Whole Truth", Sun-Hwa Kwon discovered that she was pregnant. Although...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (4.01) "The Beginning of the End"

Looking back on six seasons of "LOST", it occurred to me that my opinion of the series' season premieres have been decidedly mixed. I have enjoyed at least two of them. I have found two of them mildly entertaining. And the last two have struck me as somewhat unmemorable.

The Season Four season premiere, (4.01) "The Beginning of the End", served as a follow-up to the superb Season Three finale, (3.22-3.23) "Through the Looking Glass". In that episode, the Oceanic 815 castaways had managed to contact a freighter called the Kahana that recently...

No, this is not प्रशंसक fiction. I was recently asked if लॉस्ट would find a whole new fan-base in light of a a heavily promoted re-run currently दिखा रहा है on G4. The सवाल seemed easy enough. It's a simple yes या no answer, right? Well, not quite.
As with everything to do with Lost, there are no simple जवाब - and most जवाब simply lead to और सवालों anyway. I've been in the TV / Media industry long enough to know how cyclical these things are. The fact it's on G4 means it's being exposed to a new younger (mostly male) audience.

But लॉस्ट - द्वारा its nature - has a couple of very major roadblocks...

"LOST" RETROSPECT: (1.23-1.24) "Exodus"

If one was to ask me what was my प्रिय season finale of "LOST", I would be prone to answer Season Three's (3.22-3.23) "Through the Looking Glass". But my सेकंड choice - and a very close one at that - would have definitely been the Season One finale, (1.23-1.25) "Exodus".

Although I do not consider it to be my प्रिय "LOST" finale, I can honestly say that I found it to be the most emotional . . . at least for me. Many would say that the series finale, (1.17-1.18) "The End". Mind you, "The End" had its share of emotional moments. But there were many...
