November (specifically Black Friday Week) is always the best time of the year to buy TV & movies on DVD/Blu, and as it’s been popular in the past, I’ll be posting some of those deals again this year.
It’s not Black Friday Week yet but these three shows are 68% off or more, for anyone interested:
"I’d like to make a pact, you and me. And here’s your part: You acknowledge that I know how you feel about the ending of Lost. I got it. I heard you. I will think about your dissatisfaction always and forever. It will stay with me until I lie there on my back dying, camera pulling slowly upward whether it be a solitary dog or an entire SWAT team that comes to my side as I breathe my last breath.
And here’s my part: I will finally stop talking about it. I’m not doing this because I feel entitled or above it — I’m doing it because I accept that I will not change hearts nor minds. I will not convince you they weren’t dead the whole time, nor resent you for believing they were despite my infinite declarations otherwise.
Let this be our pact. And I’ll just have to trust you on this — I don’t have Badger and Skinny Pete pointing lasers at your chests to keep you honest. And the truth is, there’s no way everyone is going to read, let alone agree with this deal.
But I’m going to keep my part. I’m done. I’m out. Just one last thing before I go …
I stand by the Lost finale. It’s the story that we wanted to tell, and we told it. No excuses. No apologies. I look back on it as fondly as I look back on the process of writing the whole show. And while I’ll always care what you think, I can’t be a slave to it anymore. Here’s why:
I did it for me. I liked it. I was good at it. And I was really … I was alive.”
Vulture: Sorry, Dexter, You Can’t Use LOST’s Song
This week’s Dexter featured an egregious TV moment, one that shook my belief in the show — which has already waned to a tiny fraction of what it once was. (Don’t worry, this does not contain meaningful spoilers.) Charlotte Rampling’s Dr. Vogel was in her home, preparing to relax or whatever, and she put on some music: “Make Your Own Kind of Music,” sung by Mama Cass.
No! Not allowed!
"Make Your Own Kind of Music" is way, way too deeply tied to LOST, which used the song to marvelous effect starting with season two’s premiere, “Man of Science, Man of Faith.” Remember, when Desmond was puttering around the hatch, listening to it? I remember. (Remember how excited you were for the second season premiere of LOST? I remember that, too. Christ, I loved that show.)
