I had forgotten what a cool show this is. After the long break, I actually got confused into thinking that other shows were better, but I learnt my lesson real quick after watching the 'first' episode yesterday.

One of the things I noticed (in the re-cap show) that I hadn't before was that the guy in the hatch with Desmond (Clancy Brown) before, was the same guy in the Army with Saeed! I haven't gone back to season 1 & 2, I think I should. I also liked the way the show opened up some more yesterday, revealing something about one of the 'others'.

Looking forward to the next 15 weeks. Cool

They need to kick things into overdrive the rest of this season and bring it to a conclusion next year.

Yeah, the show seems to be dragging. I didn't even like last night's episode that much. It was OK, but nothing awesome. Still feels like filler or something to me. I also want to get back to the main island and the main cast.

I just love this show. I don't mind if it goes on like this for another 3 seasons, although I doubt it'll survive one more, mainly due to logistics, and the fact that people get bored too easily.

*SPOLIER*
So Desmond goes back in time and gets a chance to make it different, but ends up in the same place. I realize it's still a flashback in a way, but dang.

Last night's episode was better, IMO. I like the characters they were focusing on more, and I like the situations, location, ect more. I don't know why, but the whole Others Island and the Jack/Kate/Sawyer triangle really does not interest me. Maybe because we spent so much ruttin time there this season. Hopefully it's almost over and we'll get some new stuff going on.

While I agree that the show has declined a bit in quality I am taking a sit back and wait approach with it. I am still content to let the writers take us somewhere and see what they have up their sleeves.

It hasn't spiraled as out of control as the X-Files did in the last couple of seasons yet.

but the premise for Alias was shitte from the beginning. There really was nothing original about it. It had two options, tread old territory that other shows have already done in one form or another or go completely off the wall and try and be original. It tried the later but when you start with a tired premise to begin with it's pretty hard to change gears half way through. Lost is an fairly original idea and therefore I will allow them to make some liberties and maybe stretch things past where we/they thought it might go in the beginning.

I thought there was a lot of potential in the Rambaldi stuff, that Season 4 cliffhanger was cool, ect. But it all just crapped out. It was obvious that none of the writers cared enough to do anything cool, and never had a plan. They just wanted to hurry up and wrap the damn thing up.

Alias failed because ABC fooled around with it too much. Season 4 was a "reboot" which tried to gain more viewers by becoming a procedural and it resulted in the show's worst season by far. It ended with an awesome cliffhanger that was fumbled for most of season 5 before the show ended with a slighty better note. But all in all, the show produced 2 of TV's finest seasons of all time before slowly unraveling into a parady of itself.

And that is what's happening to Lost, IMO.

Shows don't need to have original premises. Lost's premise has been done a million times before as well. Lord of the Flies, Cast Away, etc... It's the writing, the acting and the structure of the show that makes a show good.

Lost is wearing thin because they aren't advancing the storylines efficiently enough. They've got too much going on and too many characters to deal with. I'm still very intrigued in the show and it still is one of my faves, but they need to start moving things along. And I agree, one more season for this show would be just about perfect.

Well said (+). I think one (or two, but that is stretching it) more seasons of Lost would be good as well. They need to pick up the pace, whatever happens.

Well, last night's episode was pretty good. More fluff, but at least it was entertaining this time.

Definitely entertaining, but I didn't understand why the ads kept going on and on about.. you don't want to miss this one.

Hey Beckmen, do you think you have something in common with hurley (minus the lottery/bad luck)? For some reason I think of you when I see him. You know, like you just go with the flow and don't give a rat's ass what happens, kinda guy. Smiley

Sometimes I still am, sometimes I am not even human.

It was a well-written and fun episode, even though it brought nothing to the overall arc of the storyline.
