LOST – The End

 

Wow, what an epic endig.

It was not the end I though of, but probably the best they could give us. There are still a some questions we don’t have the answer on, but how they closed the show was brilliant.

LOST startet in 2004 and have been one of the best TV-shows made in recent years. The first season was nothing but excellent. When we first meet Jack, Kate, Charlie, Sawyer, Saiyd, Locke, Claire and the others, they had stranded on a dessert island after the crash of Oceanic flight 815.

We learned the LOST numbers 4 8 15 16 23 42. They showed up everywhere. There have been a lot of mysteries, and still are some that we will never get an answer on.

I think it was season 4 that was a downer, but it picket up. The episodes in the last season have been geat. But for beeing season 6 and the last of LOST, I think we could have got some more answers. We didn’t get that many in the last episode – The End – eihter, but that was a great finale for a great show. It didn’t dissapoint me a bit.

My brain have been twisted a lot during the six years of LOST. And there have been more questions than answers. I could probably wrote a lot more on LOST, but I won’t. LOST is over, there still something we don’t know about, and I think it’s the best way.

To the cast of LOST, writers, producers and the rest of the crew: You have made LOST one of the best TV-shows ever made. Thanks!

Review: The IT Crowd v3.0

the_it_crowd_v3_00

I really liked season 1 and season 2 of The IT Crowd. I’m happy say that season 3 is as good as the previously seasons. We’re still following Moss (Richard Ayoade), Jen (Katherine Parkinson) and Roy (Chris O’Dowd) in their everyday life as IT people. If this crowd can work in IT, everyone can.

Here’s the episode titles of series 3:

  1. From Hell
  2. Are We Not Men?
  3. Tramps Like Us
  4. The Speech
  5. Friendface
  6. Calendar Geeks

My favourite episodes are The Speech where Moss and Roy convince Jen into belive that the Internet is in a small black box. Friendface is also a great episode. It’s a parody on Facebook. Real fun.

Here is the text from the backcover:

Whilst Reynholm Industries boss, Douglas, is spending the pension fund on gold flakes in the water supply, the dysfunctional IT department – Moss, Roy and Jen – build up the courage to face the frightening world of people who somehow communicate without using a keyboard.

As well as the usual bickering, time wasting and incompetence, the co-dependent trio become the victims of sexual harassment, create a fundraising nude erotic calendar, confront the builders from hell and join a social networking site.

In addition to six good episode you also get this:

  • Audio commentary w/Graham Linehan
  • An Interview with Graham
  • Original Title Sequence Animatic
  • Deleted Scene 1: “Look After Yourself”
  • Deleted Scene 2: “Roy’s Sex Life”
  • Cracking the IT Crowd
  • Set Tour
  • Out-takes

If you liked the previously seasons of The IT Crowd, you will like this one. If you like British comedy, this is the show for you, start with season 1. The IT Crowd is highly recommanded!

DVD: The IT Crowd – version 2.0 (review)

I loved the first season of The IT Crowd. And the second season is as good. We are still watching Roy and Moss in the IT department with Jen as their boss.  They still try to help out on the IT front, but this in season two we also see Roy, Moss and Jen in real life, outside of their jobs. That is real fun, since Roy and Moss haven’t spendt that much time in the real world.

The IT Crowd is a joy ride, and is very much recommanded. You can see season two with out seeing the first, but you miss a lot of fun, you you should get the 1st season too.

Episodes on the disc:

  1. The Work Outing
  2. Return of the Golden Child
  3. Moss and the German
  4. The Dinner Party
  5. Smoke and Mirrors
  6. Men Without Women

You get Out-takes, audio-commentary for all episodes with write/director/creator Graham Linehan, and Recording the IT Crowd.

DVD: The IT Crowd (Version 1.0)

The IT Crowd was shown on Channel 4 sometime last year (I think, I don’t live in UK). I saw some clips on the net, and it look good. I bought the DVD and it’s great.

The show is about two guys, Roy and Moss, in the IT deparment of a big company. They have their office in the basement and spend most of their time there. From time to time they leave the office to help other employes on the other floors. But if they can, they will stay in the basement vere they feel safe.

I will quote what the back of the DVD cover say:
“Roy and Moss toil in the squalid basement of a huge company, fielding IT help desk calls. Roy has a lousy attitude coupled with an eye for the ladies, while Moss is dressed by his mother and has an earosol can of water clipped to his belt with which to spray his ear when it gets hot.

Into their life of ‘users’, pizza, science fiction and firewalls comes middle manager Jen, a spunky can-do career gal who doesn’t know one end of a laptop from the other. Can she introduce real life to men who email the fire brigade in an emergency, who invent a spycho for an internet dating site and display sympathetic PMT symptoms once a month?”

When they get a call, the conversation goes something like this:
-”Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it on and off again?
OK, well, the button on the side, is it gloving?
Yeah, you need to turn it on.”

This is a very british sitcom and a very good one. The characters are a bit stereotypical, but they are spot on. The IT Corwd is very funny and I laugh all the time. I think you will too. If you buy this DVD, and I think you should, it’s well invested money.

The series have six episodes:

  • Yesterday’s Jam
  • Calamity Jen
  • Fifty-Fifty
  • The Red Door
  • The Haunting of Bill Crouse
  • Aunt Irma Visits

The DVD have some extras: Deleted scenes, Behind The IT Crowd, Hello Friend, Hidden Out-takes and Audio commentaries.

Picture is 16:9 anamorphic, English 2.0 stereo and its PAL region 2 (will work on regionfree DVD players).

A new season will be aired in the UK this autumn 2007.

You can buy the PAL region 2 DVD from Amazon.co.uk.
