Dave’s poll about cursed frogurt…errr, no I mean cursed items, from two weeks ago showed that a whopping 55% of you like cursed items depending upon their implementation. This kind of hesitation is exactly how I feel about them, as I know quite well how they can be used in a bad way by some DMs to completely ruin the fun of the game instead of adding to it. However, a very respectable 31% of you love cursed items in all forms and believe that the inherent risk is a part of the game! A small 8% of you hate cursed items altogether, and the remaining 6% are indifferent or some other attitude towards our not-so-pleasant magic items.
As you’ve no doubt heard by now the finale of the show Lost was on last night, and since my wife and I have been big fans of the show ever since the fifth episode (we caught up on the first four within a day or two of seeing it) we were very excited to see how things would end up.While the series as a whole had some rocky parts in the middle around late season two and early season three, for me the show has been one of the only American made shows to keep me enthralled for an entire run from start to finish. It’s even more rare that I watch a show while it is being broadcast, it’s much more likely that I catch shows on DVD years later such as Sopranos, of which we’ve just started watching the first season.
With the kinds of storytelling, writing, and topics that Lost addressed it’s really not that surprising that there are large groups of people who either loved or hated the finale. My personal opinion is that if you hated the finale then you probably weren’t a fan of a lot of elements presented in the final season, but I’m more than happy to be proven wrong on that one. I think it’ll be really enjoyable to see how the finale ranks in a poll and to discuss it with people in the comments, so please share your thoughts and feelings on it below!
