This Week in Lost - 2/9/10

Yeah! We're still here, and so is Lost, so let's get on with it!

Episode 3 - "What Kate Does"

Zach says: Well, after a superb season premiere, it seems the writers are back to their old ways, giving us two different universes, and not showing much in either, until of course the very end, where some bomb shell is exposed, leaving viewers to wait until next week to learn what it could all mean.

I kind of thought we were done with this sort of thing, but if past seasons are any indicator, we probably aren't. You'll have a couple really good, intense episodes with lots of cool things going on, but the rest, will be boring, reveal very little of anything important or interesting, and rely on pure drama crap. Sure, it may be nice for some to see a bit deeper into their favorite characters, but that is more meant for previous seasons when you were just getting introduced to them.

This is the frigging final season, and I just don't care about Jack's insecurities or how Sawyer actually cares about people. I want to know about the friggin' island, the Others, what Jacob's nemesis is up to, and all that good stuff. I don't want to have to wait until the last damn episode to get more answers. The premiere was awesome, the finale will probably be amazing, but something damn well good better happen in the middle.
Zach's Score: 5/10

JDW says:
This week's episode, to say the least, did not live up to last week, and really how could it? Last week was pretty fantastic. But I agree with Zach, it's really troubling to see Lost, in its FINAL SEASON mind you, going back to its old ways of sitting around, crying to each other, and not really going anywhere.

Sure, it was really interesting to see faces like Ethan show up in the "alternate timeline"/"flash sideways" but, it was nothing more than a cameo that referenced the events that actually happened in the show's early seasons. But it didn't really do anything, it was just a "Hey! You remember that?" sort of moment, that otherwise was irrelevant. If this was one of last season's episodea, I'd of trashed it. The fact that it's part of this season makes me a bit more frustrated.
JDW's Score: 7/10

Overall Score:6/10
