What To Watch: Thursday

7:30pm ET - Versus - Penguins @ Flyers - The Red Wings couldn't sweep the Stars, can the Penguins sweep the Flyers?

9pm - ESPN - Hornets @ Spurs - Can some team PLEASE win on the road? This is getting ridiculous. What better way to end that trend than with the Hornets defeating the defending champions on their home court.

Non-sports pick - 9pm - NBC - The Office - I try to vary up the non-sports pick and not ALWAYS pick The Office every week, but this is the season finale, so you gotta watch.

By Jeff:

10pm - ABC - LOST - I'm a big nerd, lets just get that out of the way right now. One of the things I'm a big nerd about is LOST. I watch the show every week and then spend hours trying to figure out what just happened and what it actually means. This week we have part 1 of a 3-part season finale. We left off last week with a good amount of uncertainty (but this is always the case on LOST).

This episode should be interesting, with storylines involving trying to "move the island"; the arrival of the mercenaries from the boat (this means action, I'm hoping Jin kills a bunch of them); Sayid taking a tiny rubber raft 80 miles back to the island, and what looks to be a Claire centered flashback/forward episode. This should hopefully help to explain why she left her baby in the jungle and then looked like an evil spirit when she was sitting in a cabin with her deceased father. Also, lets not forget the psychic who told her that the baby was only safe with her and otherwise would be evil (more or less). This has been in the back of the mind since we've seen her baby off the island with Kate, and not Claire. Either way, for every question they may answer this episode, I'm sure they will raise two or three more. (Wow, if you don't watch Lost, it probably sounds really stupid).
