If you watch this from 1.5 minutes to 10 minutes, it is hilarious.

LOST

There is an article on Facebook listing TV shows with terrible endings, one of which is "LOST."  This led to some discussion.

John Coffey: The ending of LOST was brilliant. The problem is that people didn't understand it.

Charles Brilliant I still don't.

John Coffey:  

It is a matter of understanding the timeline. A few escape the island. They go back. They stop fake-Locke (Flocke) and save the world. Jack gets killed along with Sun and Kim. Almost everybody escapes from the island, with the exception of a couple who chose to stay behind. Hurley is now the new caretaker.

A long time later, after everyone has died, they are all in Limbo together. This is what the "flash-sideways" is all about. Because they were the most important people to each other, they act out portions of their lives as a way of letting go of their mortal existence. They don't realize that they are in limbo until each person one by one has an epiphany. Jack is the last one to have an epiphany because he stubbornly hangs onto his mortal existence. Once everybody realizes where they are, they are all ready to "move on", except for poor Benjamin Linus who has some soul searching to do.

What we left behind documentary

Surprise. I was just talking about how much I enjoyed rewatching Star Trek Deep Space Nine. I must not be the only one, because there is a documentary about the show coming to AMC theaters Monday night only.

Honestly, it doesn't make much sense to me to release a documentary into theaters about a TV show 20 years after a show has ended. Star Trek fans can't be that dedicated. How long before the documentary comes to Netflix streaming?

Not all the episodes were great. It was a mixed bag. Initially, the show took a while to find its footing.

Why You Should Watch Star Wars: The Clone Wars

I may have posted this before. Much strong language in the video.

https://youtu.be/gAdo3dGYd1

I actually like Season 1, Jar Jar, and the prequels.

This is a show that got better with every season. Season 3 episodes 5 to 7 were kind of dull. However, there were few episodes that I didn't like.

This show is no longer on Netflix. I have all the episodes.

The show is being revived for season 7 on the new Disney streaming service starting in November. Likely all the episodes will be available on Disney streaming, along with a new Star Wars series called The Mandalorian, which is why I plan on signing up for the service.

Best wishes,

John Coffey

Top 10 Worst Star Trek Deep Space Nine Episodes

#6 was good. #8 and #10 were passable. Otherwise, I agree. Almost every series has a few duds. LOST only had 1 episode that I disliked, and it wasn't even that bad.

DISNEY PLUS WILL LOSE OVER 8 BILLION DOLLARS IN STREAMING SERVICE WAR WITH NETFLIX

Disney is getting a monopoly on entertainment, having bought ABC, Marvel, FOX, DC comics, the Muppets, and Lucasfilm.  Given that they are spending 10 million per episode for a new Star Wars series called The Mandalorian, with another TV series presumably in the works, and that they have a huge library of movies, they might very well get a monopoly on streaming services.  They could outcompete Netflix, and if I were Netflix I would be in merger talks.
