I apologize. It's been nearly two weeks without a post on the Blog. Don't blame me, blame yourselves. If you all would pay me for reading this site, I could write about Lost, Alias, 24, and anything else you wanted to hear all day, every day. But since the Blog doesn't pay the bills, I am forced to keep a pesky job which sometimes forces me away from my computer for extended periods of time, resulting in no Blog updates.
For now, here is a lame last-minute post about tonight's episodes of Alias and Lost.
8:00 - Alias
Episode Title: "There's Only One Sydney Bristow"
TV Guide Description: Sydney cuts her maternity leave short to rescue Will, who has been abducted by archnemesis Anna Espinosa. Meanwhile, Sloane gets one step closer to obtaining a cure for Nadia.
To refresh our memories...
Should You Watch? ABSOLUTELY. This should be the resolution to the Will / Francie / Evil Francie / Anna Espinosa storyline that occupied much of Seasons 1 and 2!
9:00 - Lost
Episode Title: "Reckoning"
TV Guide Description: The survivors of Oceanic flight 815 have been locked in a test of faith ever since they crashed on the island. Discover how this faith has been tested for both the fuselage survivors and tailies.
Are you a person of faith or science? This is the dilemma that plagues the island survivors and also defines their character. Discover how faith in the hatch led Locke on a mission to find a way inside, and how his discovery of Desmond led to his belief that punching in the numbers every 108 minutes would ensure everyone's survival. In addition, Michael's dogged mission in finding Walt, the tailies fight for survival during their first 48 days through their collision with the fuselage survivors, the uncertainty of prisoner Henry Gale's allegiances, and tensions between the survivors and "The Others" have left everyone questioning what they believe in. Additionally, the healing powers of love are explored through a timid Hurley's struggle with asking Libby out on a date, through the strong bond between Sun and Jin, and through Jack and Sawyer's mutual - yet unrequited - attractions to Kate.
Should You Watch? Sure. I don't think there's anything else worthwhile on at 9:00. But this is a full-fledged recap episode. There won't be anything new here, just some storylines stressed that might hint at what is upcoming on Lost. These serve to aid the average viewer (with a forgetful memory) of what happened on the show since last September. But Blog readers like yourself probably don't need any sort of refresher.
Sorry for the lame post. I promise we'll be back to normal in time for new Lost next week.
