And I Thought I Was LOST

OK, so is any one else sick and tired of Benjamin Linus. I sure am. I know the stories are interesting and even slightly suspenseful, but not nearly as much as before, but I can't take sitting on my couch yelling "Will someone just please shoot this guy already!" for one more second. Seriously already. I am reminded of people who call a radio show and tell the DJ/personality how horrible they are and how much the caller hates them, and the DJ/personality always has the same answer. Stop listening! That is how I feel. Even as addicted as I am, I am just about ready to stop watching this damn show. They pretty much started losing me after they started the flash forwards. The last episode I truly liked was the episode where Desmond goes to the boat and gets lost in time. Each episode since then has been less enthralling than the last. And the Micheal episode. What a waste of my time. I could have done without that all together.

Anyway that is my rant. I'm going to get ready to go out with a woman who I am pretty sure is still interested in getting naked with me.

Wrong!, Wrong! Wrong!

With the Dharma puzzles gone the only mystery device we have now is Ben. In last weeks episode, Michael Emerson humanized a supervillian like we had never seen. Ben's moves are like a chess game, he is always thinking 5 moves ahead. And in last weeks episode, we saw a very poignant moment after (spoiler alert!) Alex was killed. He was in a utter state of shock, and for the first time he didn't know what to do. I think by the end of the season, Ben might show us that he might indeed be "one of the good guys" compared to Charles Widmore. Stay tuned!

Half the Dharma puzzles weren't solved, and yes Ben is a mystery but he is an evil, lying, manipulating human being who is responsible for the deaths of dozens of people.

Sure plenty of answers will be lost if Ben dies, and Widmore probably is as evil as Ben, but I knew that after he intercepted all of Desmond's letters.

Shoot them both in the head so we can all go home and watch Heroes.

And Weeds.

PS- Ben is sooooo responsible for Alex's death. The rule change excuse is bullshit.
