Lost Blog: On etiquette, goodness and general niceness
Well, I was hoping I wouldn't have to do this, but ...
In recent weeks there's been an unfortunate uptick in negativity around these parts. I'm not sure where that comes from. Maybe it's because the end is nigh? Perhaps it's due to expectations being high (and the threat that they might not be met)? I'm not sure.
Truth is, I don't care.
We're in the home stretch. These are the last few weeks we'll ever have to revel in the anticipation, the fun and the excitement of new "Lost" episodes. This is not the time for snide comments. Back in season three, when many of us were disheartened at the general direction of the series, I understood the frustration and some of the associated comments. But not now. Seriously. Please. Not now.
So I'm asking you, if you've ever enjoyed the conversations in this blog or my reviews or you're just a die-hard "Lost" fan, don't spoil the last few weeks. Let's enjoy this. Let's celebrate all we've had here. Like it or not, things will change once the show is gone. I've experienced this before. It's just the nature of community. So we have a unique opportunity to ride this out in high style, and I say we go for it. Embrace it.
I certainly hope you know I'm forever in your debt for allowing this place to become something very special to me. Let's keep it going for just a little while longer. Let's see it through. That's all I ask.
Put another way: Don't be a Ben. Be a Hurley.
