I’m going to blog a bit about the show Lost. I know not everybody is a fan and a lot of people have gotten frustrated with the show and stopped watching it. I haven’t. I love it and dammit, I’ve made it this far. I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS. And if this show ends up being about aliens or dinosaurs, so help me god – I am going to make those writers PAY for wasting the last few years of my life.
With that said… I guess I should say what I’m posting may be a bit of a spoiler if you didn’t catch this past week’s episode so stop reading if you don’t want to know what happens. Although I will say this was a very predictable plot twist.
Anywho – this past week’s show focused on Miles, the guy who can talk to dead people. It was interesting to get some perspective on his past and as soon as his dying mom said that his father was in a place he’d NEVER find, I knew exactly what the twist was.
Miles is the spawn of Dr. Pierre Chang.
Wow – I didn’t see that coming from a mile away (no pun intended and please note the sarcasm). I deduced this from the simple fact that Miles and Dr. Chang are both asian. Lost isn’t really doing a bang up job incorporating minorities into the show unless they’re related. Michael was Walt’s dad. Sun and Jin are married. So you can’t have 2 unrelated asian people running amok on the island. They must be related.
The best part of this revelation? Jeremy’s reaction.
“Wow – they did a great job in casting that role. They look a lot alike.”
Observe the evidence.
Aside from both being asian (not even the SAME ethnicity, mind you), I don’t see a resemblance. I laughed when I tried to get Jeremy to tell me what exactly was similar (he claimed their nose and mouth were the same but never once mentioned their almond-shaped eyes or yellow skin).
Maybe Miles is my long lost cousin?
P.S. I do want to add that I’m kind of guilty of avoiding stereotypical descriptions too. I caught myself once describing a girl to a woman. The girl is black and I was asking who she was because she had the most fabulous sense of style and was GORGEOUS to boot. But I found myself avoiding saying she was black. I have no idea why. So weird.
