These are my reactions to watching the American Idol and Lost finales last night respectively. Last night we had to record both programmes because we went to Edward's annual end of year Scout barbecue where traditionally we all assume it is going to be warm and end up freezing (it is still only May after all) while we eat and go through all the awards won by the cubs and scouts troops.
We watched Lost first because Edward was desperate to see it but also had school this morning. Well it was OMG material - won't give anything away in case you haven't seen it but lots revealed, lots happening, some good, some shocking, and lots of new secrets.
Then we sat through most of 2 hours of filler on American Idol (must admit we ff'ed through some of it as it was getting late) and they were just about to announce the winner when we had the WTF moment - the recording stopped and we didn't have the results. Apparently they ran over by 8 minutes so everyone who was hoping to see it later was disappointed unless they had the forethought to record the news as well.
Luckily the one I wanted to win won but I had to find out on the internet afterwards and it wasn't the same as seeing their face when they heard the news. And if I had known I wouldn't have bothered watching any of the rest of it - entertaining though most of it was - I could have gone straight online and found out.
