Re: Eh, could have been better.

This seemed like a set up episode. Not so much filler, but more like a prologue to the next one. Lots of exposition explaining who the Others are and reminding viewers who missed what they've done. But I would've liked a little more information from old Henry. I thought he would break and spill it but Jack had to step in and ruin everything. Then Locke has to enter the numbers in time and ruin everything there. And crushing a tree frog? What's up with that?? Why on earth would Hurley help him after how Sawyer treated him when he said he didn't care if people knew about the food. I didn't get that entire subplot.

This episode left me baffled and frustrated.

Oh, and were they trying to say that those nice kind Iraqis have never tortured anyone in their lives until the big bad Americans came along and taught them how? That kind of offended me.

Re: Eh, could have been better.

Well, for the first time in a while, you won't see me dissing the episode in this thread. I loved it.

Yes, the countdown was a tease, but it gave up a little info, even if it wasn't entirely clear what it was. And the introduction of Henry Gale at least opens up the door to what could be a wealth of information. No, we didn't get any info tonight, but like I've said in past "Eh, could have been better" threads, it's not necessarily answers that I look for, just progress. And the introduction of Henry Gale is most certainly progress.

I'm not sure what to make of the Sawyer/Hurley side-plot, outside of the writers just re-enforcing that he is cruel even when he doesn't need to be which is directly juxtaposed to Hurley, who is kind even when he doesn't need to be. And maybe that's all it was.

But we knew that didn't we? Waste of a perfectly good subplot when they have precious few minutes per episode to begin with.

Re: Eh, could have been better.

allrighty guys , I'm seriously fed up. I love the show but we still didn't get any answers .. we're not even close to know what can happen if the button is not pushed.
I thought from the preview that the button thing was the minimum we were going to find out , but still nothing ...and now we've 2 week of waiting for no reasons and i'm sure next episode it's gonna be the same way ...seriously i'm fed up

I think the point they were making was that war is dirty...no matter what side is the victor or which side is 'good', good people on both sides will suffer. Enemies are going to die and so are innocents. War changes people, and not usually in any way good. I think they were showing the impact war has on all people, with the pilot being executed and leaving a family behind....and Sayid learning a trade im sure he would rather be without.

Those scenes lost me as well. It may have given us sone insight into Hurley and the fact that he may be a compulsive eater and thus why he was in a psych ward, but mostly it seemed like a reenforcement of last episode's Sawyer=bad theme.

All in all I loved the episode very much, so i probably dont belong in this thread

Re: Eh, could have been better.

There were things I liked about this episode but the Sawyer/Hurley thing was just too...much. Sawyer is a first class jerk. Ok..we know.

I'm am tired of Jack and Locke going off on each other..although I did like Jack telling Locke to 'shut up!"

I agree about the Iraqus and the torture thing. No one in the world ever tortured anyone until the Americans came along..but I don't think the guy who forced Sayid to do that was regular Army...I'll have to watch again and see.

Yeah I do agree. That subplot was entirely filler.. well, and we did finally find out why Hurley wasn't losing any weight. I guess it was just there to make us even more disgusted by Sawyer. I hope Hurley doesn't die from that 'good for 7 years in room temperature' Ranch nasty dressing.

Oh and Pacejunkie I like the darth hoodie pic in your sig hehe
