Ask the Geeky Girls -
Rhonda (DuellingNeedles) from Pennsylvania asks:
Lost is one of my favorite TV shows and I always enjoy C.C.’s weekly recap.

C.C.- Who is your favorite Lost character and why?

Dami always seems so puzzled and interested about the show. Is there a reason that she doesn’t watch with you and the Hubs?
