Goody, goody. All excited over LOST season 3 about to start. Tonight's first episode is about Jack. Wonder whether he'll cry? No doubt at one stage he'll emote, yell, and screw his face up in a big tanty. He's an interesting character. In American TV-land, the doctor sits Zeus-like among the pantheon of roles; the most prestigious career and polar opposite to the similarly lucrative, yet demonised profession, lawyers. The doctor is a mother-father figure, both protective and caring, authoritative and sympathetic, sensitive yet aloof. Mythologically, Jack is the sacred-king, a dying-and-reviving god image, an Oedipal boy who must slay his father to assume the throne.
