LOST – The End

Filed under: blog,TV — Tags: , , — technofranki @ 20:27

 

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!

Pac-Man 30th anniversary

Filed under: blog,retro — Tags: , , — technofranki @ 10:09

 

On May 22, 1980 Namco released Pac-Man to the Japanese arcades. The game was a great success, and after 30 years, we still play Pac-Man. The game have been converted and ported to every videogame format under the sun. Everybody knows about Pac-Man and it was an icon of the 1980s popular culture. I have found memories about the game, and still fancy it today.

To celebrate Pac-Man’s 30th anniversary, Google made their logo a playable Pac-Man game. You can watch a YouTube-video I made playing the game.
