It’s why I love Lost. Yes, go ahead, skip the post if you don’t watch Lost. But let me say this, I love TV that makes us feel. Lost, I will say, never makes me feel. It makes me think, and it makes me feel smart. And at the end of the day, we all love feeling smart. We love figuring things out, doing that party down touchdown dance, when you know you’re right. When you so called it.
And I did. Months ago, first week in February, you heard it here. I wrote that Daniel (Twitchy) Faraday was Penelope’s brother, and therefore Desmond’s brother-in-law (and constant), and I wrote that he was indeed Charles Widmore’s son. Though I’m not sure you have to be a physicist to have figured that out. See, that’s the key with a smart show: it makes you believe you’re smart without actually having to be.
