There Should Be A Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Musical Instruments

by Rainier on May 24, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

We had friends over to watch the series finale of Lost, and while it's been a good six seasons, we have no idea what just happened. Questions were answered, but equally as many new questions have presented themselves. Guess it's open to interpretation so people can form their own conclusions and make of it what they want. I personally don't like these kinds of endings. So many other shows get canceled and you are left hanging without resolution, and these guys had six years to wrap it all up, and they didn't.

We also went to see Date Night, which was surprisingly good and quite funny in a more sarcastic/adult way. Tomorrow, we're going to go see Prince of Persia, so hopefully that won't be a disappointment like most game movie adaptations.
