Non Resident Alien

This is a chronicle of my tragi-comic life as a foreigner in the United States. My official status when I started school in 2004, was that of a Non-Resident-Alien and that's where the title of the blog is from. My status has changed to Resident Alien since then. My personal experiences are a unique roller coaster mundane everyday experiences for locals, but unique from the eyes of a foreigner. I started this blog to share some of my experiences beginning my third year living in this country.

LOST! What a disappointment!!

Seriously! The quality of the show had been declining since the end of Season 4. I kept to it hoping there will be some twist to the story. But, the very first episode of Season 6 where the distinction was made between black and white, good and evil had me cringing. As the Season unfolded I could not help noticing some parallels with certain religious beliefs, and then it became a deja vu; another disaster like Battlestar Galactica. I think, story writers simply do not know how to end it and then take either a religious, environmental or social message direction towards the end. So, what was the story of the island before Oceanic 816? Just the glimpse we were shown! C'mon there needs to be more to the narrative right!! Tons and tons of loose ends and characters unexplained. What was Whitmore's role? It seemed like Daniel Faraday was all over the place, the past the present, the future. I do not buy the multiverse arguments either. So if all of it is possible, why the heck did we have the story of the crash survivors in the first place. They all exist differently in different dimensions.. so..? Its like an exercise in research, where you collect lots and lots of data, run a lot of analysis over an extended period of time (such as a PhD dissertation) and then at the end conclude that there is no definite answer to the research question, because all alternative solutions are correct. ok.. So what? I think I will give up on TV shows!! I do not see how Heroes is going to end either.. and given the trends in these other suspenseful scifi shows, there is no reason to believe that it will be any different!!
