21Q’s Sam McManis beat me to the punch last week on the Lost promos for News10 starring TV’s Sawyer:
He looks into the camera with that Sawyerian smirk and says, “Don’t trust ‘The Others.’ Watch News10.”
The viewer can easily detect the barely-disguised ennui actor Josh Holloway (Sawyer) is nursing having to do promos for every ABC affiliate from here to Baltimore.
Quipped one friend of 21Q: “Yeah, Henry Gale is totally a KCRA guy.”
If you’re a “Lost” fanatic, you’ll get the reference.
Which I technically still am, but I don’t. Even with the ennui it’s still better than those Colusa Casino radio spots starring Carlos Santana.
UPDATE: Sam McManis emails:
Now, the implication by my colleague who made the Henry Gale/KCRA quip was that “The Others” aka “The Man” aka “The Establishment” would watch KCRA whereas the good guys would watch warm-and-fuzzy News10.
Yeah I don’t know why I didn’t get that. Although I like to think that Sawyer would be all over this here weblog, since he is the premiere provider of snark on the island. And thinking of him hunching over a keyboard hunting and pecking is almost as funny as when he wears glasses.
