At least, it does if you're a "Lost" junkie. If you're not already hooked, now might be your time to check it out. I know it's late in the third season and, if you don't watch the show, you have no chance in Hell of figuring out what's going on but the last handful of episodes have been so fucking good that I can remain silent no longer.
And, besides, I never started watching "Lost" until half-way through the second season. All the hype surrounding the first season automatically turned me off (this is also the reason I refuse to watch "Lost" promos) until I finally caught a 2nd Season ep that was so weird, ominous, and well-written that I impulsively went and bought the first season on DVD. After watching twelve episodes in a row (from 2:00 PM to 2:00 AM) on a free Saturday, I've been a rabid fan ever since. And, yes, the pilot episode was the best hour of television entertainment ever committed to film.
And when I use the phrase "'Lost' junkie," that is fairly accurate. At this exact moment, I am fully willing to sacrifice the lives of countless innocents to make it 10:00 and get my fix. And once 11:00 rolls around, all I can think about is, "Only seven more days, Reverend. One day at a time..."
After the 3rd season finale, I'm seriously considering being put into an induced coma until season four debuts.
To pass the time until ten, I've been jamming (in a non-stop fashion) to a band introduced to me by my recently married friend...

This is what we at the Church of the Everlasting Groove mean when we speak of "rock/funk." These guys have a watertight groove and manage to produce some of the best bluesy rock I've heard in my quarter-century on this planet. Check out their MySpace page, located yonder, and hear two other great songs as well.
