Though we're a couple months into Season 4 of Lost
, I just had to say that I'm really enjoying watching Ken Leung
on the telly -- or rather, my laptop.
He charmed me in last year's rotoscoped, admittedly saccharine, fairy tale feature Year of the Fish
(but now I am thoroughly sick of people talking to goldfish in films), and when I saw him standing across the way at last year's SFIAAFF I wanted to run up to him and jump into his arms and ask him to rescue me.
Miles Straume, his swarthy Lost
character, is the most fascinating of the new batch and arguably of the entire show. Not only is Miles a daredevil jerk with a temper, but he's a fricking medium
. He talks to dead people! I totally dug the scene in Episode 2 where he's channeling the dead druggie kid and the room starts to get all crazy.
Also in my notes: Not so cool on TV -- Kal Penn in House
