read a story a day: Jan 19 - Feb 1, 2009

Monday Jan 19 - Sunday Feb 1, 2009
Total: ~12 stories (~10 in graphic novel)
Top Favorites: Several of the ZOT! "Earth" issues

Stories Read:
Many chapters of ZOT! collection
"Summer in Paris, Light in the Sky" by Ken Scholes, Long Walks, Last Flights, and Other Strange Journeys_ (collection)
"Last Flight of the Goddess" by Ken Scholes, Long Walks, Last Flights, and Other Strange Journeys_ (collection)

A slow week. I mainly read ZOT! at nights, and rather liked the "Earth" issues (around #30-#37 or so) that focused on the minor characters. I also finished Ken's collection, which I really liked a lot. More on that later, in an upcoming "Books Read and Enjoyed" post.

TV Comment:: LOST, season 5, episode 4

Season 5, Episode 4
"The Little Prince"

Things we should be learning this episode: who sent the lawyers, what's happening to Charlotte, what Sun's plans are. This is just going to be my notes on watching the episode in real-time.

I'm using my "Quantum Leap" terminology and saying that those on the island (the Islanders) are "jumping" through time. It's easier that way.

Summary: Well, that was some serious LOST-y fun. And we got some useful and pleasing information. Of course, it took jerking the characters around through time for this to happen. But one thing the "jumping through time" aspect lets the show do is wrap up a lot of loose ends. Or at least do some more reveals of information and scenes that were previously only hinted at or mentioned in passing. The 16-episode-a-season pace is keeping things moving along at a quick clip, and I'm liking this pace a lot.
