I had to do something.
Haven’t watched the finale yet, but they said on Jimmy Kimmel that Vincent will live. Good boy.
After watching it: It made me cry buckets, but I was unhappy in a fan/writer/shipper way that is longer lasting. That was not an ending I appreciate, after watching for 6 years.
My comment I left there:
I loved this show – it showed that television can be art. Every other show will be held up to this one, and it’s good to have something to aspire to.
This season kind of sucked – the mystical temple, magic waters, and mythology was overdone and hammered into the scripts.
I don’t know anyone who didn’t get the ending – it’s pretty obvious if anyone watched the series, or even this season. But the NYT poll said only 2/3 of the viewers liked the ending, and I’m in the unhappy part. First of all, when I say I want a happy ending, I don’t want the protagonist to DIE in the last 5 minutes.
And is there really a happy? Because if Jack’s OWN SON wasn’t real in the sideways world, who’s to say all the happy reunions were real? Okay, he gains his LOST pals, but loses a son. Yeah, maybe the son wasn’t real, but then what about all the people we know? Logic disconnect.
I’ll write more in my TV blog, when I get time.
As far as the science mentioned here…
Molecular biologist J. Craig Venter, the primary author of the report detailing the findings, described the converted cell as “the first self-replicating species we’ve had on the planet whose parent is a computer.”
Not that impressive, it turns out: the inside part is artificial, but it still lives in a real cell! Spin, much?
