    Claremont had to have been speaking sarcastically. That's a real case of the pot calling the kettle black. I gave up on the X-Men when he was writing it because nothing was ever resolved. I haven't looked back since. On the other hand Lost's mysteries promise resolution. Twenty or so years later can the same be said for the X-Men?

      No, he was serious. You can imagine my reaction. I did ask if I could quote him, knowing the implications, and he said "Sure."He then launched into a litany of items– he'd just caught an episode or two on SciFi, and was flummoxed. Not only at plot direction, but character motivations. I'm trying to see if I can force him to do recaps, but I think I'd need Alex's chair from A Clockwork Orange to do it.And the kettle is "cookware of color".Hey, Chris has been off X-Men for 18 years. I suspect a few things would be resolved by now if he'd kept writing.

    Well, the season premiere was great. There were a number of surprises and the action was high. This looks like a good season.

    Chris is entitled to his opinion of course, but I find Lost to be the best show ever aired on network TV. It has strong characterization, action, an intriguing plot line and, unlike multiple cross-over storylines so prevalent in comics, it's confined to one original airing a week! And with Lost ending next season, it's episodes are strong, not meandering like comics. Thankfully, ratings are high and my experience has been that the buzzword is prevalent with everyone I meet.
