Only in Jersey: 2/3/12

Welcome to the fourth edition of Only in Jersey!

If it’s filming in Jersey, takes place in Jersey, or is about celebs from Jersey, you will find it here.

Expedia pitchman Michael Ian Black has found the humor in house hunting. The Hillsborough native has live-tweeted twice (most recently Tuesday night) during seemingly random reruns of the HGTV reality show “House Hunters International.” Joining him in exchanging witticisms is fellow funnyman (and “Daily Show with Jon Stewart” contributor) John Hodgman. Among Michael’s observations: “John, I prefer house #1. Second choice is #3. This means they will pick #2” and “Thank you, John. Once again, we have shown people that living overseas is always a tragic mistake.” If you’re interested in reading more of Michael’s “House Hunters International”-related tweets, check him out on Twitter. He is also the author of several books, including the upcoming “You’re Not Doing It Right: Tales of Marriage, Sex, Death, and Other Humiliations.”

Confession: I am a dedicated Target shopper.

If only I had one of these every time I went shopping.

Seriously, I go there to pick up one or two things and wind up with a carriage full of stuff. It’s a problem.

So I got a real thrill Sunday night when – during the “Lost” finale – Target aired several commercials spoofing the much-beloved series.

The day I got “Lost”

If you’re a “Lost” fan, you’re probably bummed out that the end is nigh. But cheer up! A new exhibition about the show is now open in New York City, and I guarantee it will make you smile.

Yes, that is EXACTLY what you think that is: Hurley's Dharma van! But that's a crushed Dharma cola can, not beer, on the dashboard. Hey, even the Dharma Initiative doesn't condone drinking and driving./All photos by Ava Gacser

“Lost”: Yup, that’s the perfect name for this show

I am so confused.

Last night we learned that Sawyer, Juliet, Ghostbuster dude Miles, brilliant dude Daniel and Jin are hanging with their homeys – aka Dharma Initiative people – in 1974.

But that confuses me, because Daniel caught a glimpse of a little redheaded girl who was obviously Red, aka Charlotte. Even if she was 3 years old there, that would make her in her late 30s now. Unless, of course, I’m not supposed to be thinking in 2009 terms. Didn’t the plane crash happen in 2005? Is 2005 the “present” to those on the island? What happened to the Oceanic 6? Did they lose a couple years when they returned to civilization?

Combine that confusion with all of that time skipping last night – “three years ago” versus “three years later” – and I’m thoroughly confused. It hurts my head to think about it. Ow.

I did like how Sawyer – excuse me – James LaFleur – is in charge of the compound’s security. That’s rich! And what is CTU’s Michelle Dessler doing working for Dharma? And why does that guy Horace look so familiar? Haven’t they already had some kind of run in with Horace (maybe as a corpse)?

And what was the reference to the hostile indigenous people? Since when are The Others indigenous to the island?

Most importantly, will Sawyer dump Juliet now that Kate has returned?
