LOST: I’m lukewarm

leave a comment »


One thing about LOST that is really impressive for me is that it is an incredibly resilient show. Just when you think it’s lost focus or run out of plot lines, bam! They hit you with an episode that has you on the edge of your seat for an entire hour.

Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. I still haven’t conferred with the other LOST-philes around my office so I wonder what their reaction will be. The girl who sits next to me felt like last night was an improvement on the season premiere. I was a bit more underwhelmed.

They did answer a question or two. And they did completely focus on the folks on the island which was a nice break for me. I’m sort of sick of the whole Oceanic 6 story and how they’re struggling back in the real world. It was a relief that they’ve eased up on the time warp thing. But it looms continually over each episode like a roiling, black cloud.

Richard’s story becomes more provocative, as he never ages.

The most interesting relevation was about Charles Widmore and his presence on the island as a young man and as one of The Others. Actually, he comes across more like a young punk. That part and his remaining story definitely have me intrigued. We’ll see if that’s enough.
