****Spoiler Alert! Don't read if you've haven't caught up on your TiVo for American Idol or Lost or the Amazing Race.
Hurley is one of my favorite characters on Lost and I'm glad we got one of his flashbacks this week. I love that he destroyed his food stash (though someone else might have appreciated a donation) and then he finds that Dharma's dropped a new load of food. Ha ha! Although the whole "Hurley had a dream" concept of why they're all on this crappy island is too easy. Nah, it's real. Well, more real than a dream in his head. Although Libby being a mental patient with him throws a kink in things. Every time we think we get an answer, we get more questions!
Sawyer remains my favorite character. He comes up with the best names to call people. And I love that Sawyer had a throwdown with Hurley. Too bad Sawyer's shirt didn't get ripped!
I am still dirt last in the American Idol pool. I should've picked Mandissa. She was the worst of the week, but I thought she was strong enough to have been forgiven her bad country singing. She was my pick for number 3, so I really don't think I have a chance of winning anymore. Which means I'll have to help take the winner out for SUSHI. yuck. I thought maybe Ace would go home, since he'd been in the bottom 3 for the last few weeks. And Bucky was still horrible. Are you people listening to the same singers I am? My ears bleed every week.
And then my very favorite reality show The Amazing Race wasn't on top of its form this week. It was kind of blah. However, I love the hippies and the frat boys, and how they're genuinely helping each other. The older couple is starting to annoy me, but please, someone, get Lake off this show! They need to let viewers vote a team off or something, cuz he is the sorriest excuse for a husband I've ever seen. He's always telling his wife she's wrong, but she's the whole reason they're still in it. Argh! And what are the two frat boys going to do with a cruise for 2 as a prize for their first place finish?
Comment fodder: Who do you think should win American Idol? Who's your favorite Amazing Racer? Do you have a Lost theory? I want to engender blog spirit here, folks.
