I don't think I had a single facial expression over the course of this episode. There was nothing in the ep that inspired so much as a facial tic in me. The 'funny' parts weren't really funny, nor the 'heartwarming' parts heartwarming. It was just there. And this is coming from a person who usually shouts insults or approval at the television set.
In hindsight, I do have to mentally snort at the swelling music that drowned out what could have been an interesting reunion scene when Kate and Sawyer returned. Honestly, I think most people would favor a far more realistic "let's hug briefly then I'll grill you" reunion over the sappy, yet 'pretty', scene that we got. It was so flat with false emotion. Why not let the actors and writers try to elicit sympathy from us rather than having a composer force-feed it to us? They so took the easy way out. Par for the course.
It was like let's take a week off and let the viewer have an episode with very little meaning and very little significance to the entire show. IMO Normally I wouldn't mind, but we had a few month hiatus and I am not ready for a very slow and/or weak episode.
I find myself saying this to friends over and over again - Lost shouldn't be a damn Soap Opera. It became the great show that it is not because of love stories, or sad stories, or grieving, or any other typical sitcom/soap opera BS. Lost is Lost because of the hatch, the others, Dharma, the smoke monster, and so on. WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THAT?!?!
Well, they revisited the 'powers' aspect that is a part of Lost.
I am neutral about this episode. It wasnt great & it definitely wasnt as bad as the last one. But hey...can we get over the stupid redemption, hope themes etc?
How about the real mysteries & plotlines?
1. Sawyer: Is tht really Sawyer?
2. No one fears to go into the jungle anymore. Smokey! Who?
3. Whole episode on how the car got started. Enough. We know the island is special.
4. Rousseau is gonna help find Otherville. She hasnt even seen any other except for Ben
5. All the episodes are probably canned. and we will just have to bear with as many FILLERS & stupid episodes come our way.
6. I cant let go of this show. But my frustration is increasing.
I did not love this episode.
I did not hate this episode.
I did not enjoy this episode.
I did not booed this episode.
I just "saw" this episode.

This is my 1st time on the "didn't love" episode until the beginning of S1 !!!
I agree with most of you. Where is Lost ?
We have had some unnecessary episodes in a row, Jack's tatoo, Hurley's van...
Where is happening to Locke and Sayid ?
I am starting to get really disappointed with Lost and I used to be a great great fan...
Now I am staring to thing that Lost is just a common TV show...
Thank goodness for Heroes, Battlestar Galactica, and 24. This show has gone from being my fave show of all time to a show that I don't care if I miss an episode anymore.
You want funny moments, watch a real comedy. You want cute and cuddly, tune into blues clues. You want interpersonal relationships, there is always oprah and dr. phil. It is to the point where I would rather watch Oprah than Lost and I HATE oprah.
I wish the writers would just steal one of the great theories off of the fuselage and run with it.
Hey Yung24, do you still think the idiots that are writing for lost now could really have come up with all the quantum crap that you have developed as being the underlying theme of Lost? I think not. By the way, I love your theories about as much as I hate what lost has become.
There are so many, many, many mysteries that the writers developed in season 1 for the writers to work with for another two years explaining away. Instead we are being subjected to "feel good" episodes of lost.
I guess we all now know why Alias started off so great and it too became crap in the end.
Why can't these guys just tell the story? I guess no one who is working on this show has looked at the ratings lately because Lost has become lost on the TV ratings.
I love lost but it seems like they did this week what they did in the middle of last season when they disregarded the main plot and just did filler episodes ... this was one, next week should, and prob will, return to the main storyline that we all care about ... dont get me wrong i like hurley, but the episode seemed like nonsense to me, hopefully they will make yje episode significant in the future
On a positive note, it's a good thing that they decided to show this season with the remaining epidsodes back to back, because if I waited 2-3 weeks for an episode of this quality, I would have put a shotgun in my mouth.
My measure of what I felt for this episode is the amount of posts I have written for its thread: I found exactly TWO topics interesting enough to post on. This one, of course, and the one on Pikki. That is all, Nothing to discuss, to speculate, to suggest.
