Concert Review: Katy Perry - The Prismatic World Tour at the FedEx Forum, October 2014


Alex: Should you invest in tickets to see Katy Perry? I use the word “invest” because the act of purchasing tickets to most pop spectacles now go beyond “buying.” Attendance costs per person now are worth a heavy chunk of change, especially if you want premium seating and merchandising Read more

Going Back to the Island: The 10th Anniversary of Lost’s Premiere

lost header Going Back to the Island: The 10th Anniversary of Losts Premiere

Ten years ago this week, Lost premiered on ABC with over 18 million viewers tuning in. It’s not the best show of the past decade.  But it will likely always be my favorite show because there has never been and there will never be anything quite like it in terms of scope, quality, obsession, and community-building.

This only seems appropriate for the show that gave us the classic “Live Together, Die Alone” speech.

Or John Locke explaining Backgammon to Walt in the pilot episode which premiered 10 years ago – “Two players, two sides. One is light. One is dark.”

There was theology (Mr. Eko and John Locke talking about the building of the temple in the Old Testament), mythology (giant statues missing toes, light coming from caves), family drama driving big global conglomerates and vice-versa, smoke monsters, polar bears, time traveling, hippie communes filled with crazy scientists, flash-backs, flash-forwards, flash-sideways, and “The Constant.” Oh, The Constant. Desmond and Penny. Watching the final moments of that episode reminds me that they’re likely the greatest love story in TV history (we didn’t even meet them until Season 2!) and when Lost was great, it was better and is better than anything else.
