What seems like ages ago, I was a big fan of Lost. I didn’t watch the first season when it aired, but all the buzz about it got me curious, so my husband and I gave the first season dvd’s a try – and really liked it! But then the second season of Lost wasn’t as good, mainly because there were way too many questions and loose ends brought about – we couldn’t figure out why they weren’t concluding some of the mysteries instead of adding tons of new questions each week! When production was temporarily halted because of the writer’s strike a few years ago, things on Lost really went downhill. But we had invested the time in watching it, and because the show’s creators announced a definitive end date for Lost – this is the last season – we decided to stick it out.
So last night’s highly anticipated last Lost season premiere was… eh. Only so-so, I would say. First, the show opened with really cheap-looking computer animation showing the island underwater, what was that? And there was a recap episode before the premiere, thank goodness for that, but between the 2 episdoes, we saw the same climatic scene 3 times in 12 minutes! And the recap episode didn’t help as much as I would have hoped – 12 minutes into the new Lost, and I was officially lost. My husband tells me that there are now two sets of each character, but I somehow missed that. If it’s true, I don’t like it.
Ugh… I like the concept of seeing flight 815 before it crashed, but all the actors look 6+ years older! Especially Boone!
The end of the episode was breathtaking, although I remain confused… were any of these people aware of what had happened? The time travel throughout the various decades?
I guess I have to watch the premiere again; I feel like I’m missing something… actually I’m missing a lot of things. The show is still entertaining, but I am so glad it’s almost over! It really require more thought and more of a time commitment than I have to give to tv right now!
