Lost: The Beginning of the End

Oh how nice it is to have LOST back on tv…

But as a fan who started watching the show on DVD, I am so unsatisfied with just one episode! I wish I had a whole disc of LOST left to watch tonight. What did everyone think of the episode?

Hurley & Charlie: This was definately a Hurley-centric episode. His flash-forwards are very interesting. Charlie has come back to talk to him. Dead Charlie that is. Viewers are not sure what to think about him, having known his history of mental illness and his imaginary friend from past episodes. Charlie looked good. Thats one of the nice things about this show. Even when a character dies, that doesnt nessesarily mean that they are off the show. They are still able to show up in flashbacks and former scenes. I will miss Charlie’s character, so hopefully he will continue to come back from time to time. Wasn’t the black man that came to find Hurley at the hospital scary? That was amazing casting. Whoever that guy is. Totally Scary.

Jack: In typical Jack mode he is taking charge and telling everyone what to do. At the beginning of the show the castaways needed him to be their leader. They needed him to tell them what to do and they trusted him completely. It is interesting to see the shift now to a point where people are choosing between Jack and Locke. I really think that Jack has everyone’s best interests at heart. Also, did anyone else notice how thin he has gotten? First thing I noticed was that Matthew Fox has gotten much thinner and has a new haircut! He looks great, as always, but he is defiantely thinner.

Kate: Still trapped between her emotions. Love for Sawyer. Love for Jack. I was impressed with the way she stole the Satallite phone from Jack. Smart move. She knew she was right, and it turns out that she really was. Naomi had wandered all the way into the jungle to do what? Hide? Get them to go looking for her? I think she was just trying to get away because she thought they were trying to kill her, but it was still a little bit confusing.

Sawyer: I love Sawyer’s character. Love him. I was impressed with the tenderness he used when asking Hurley how he was doing dealing with Charlie’s death. It was probably the nicest and most vulnerable we have ever seen Sawyer be. I wonder if the killing of his parents’ killer (Locke’s dad) has changed his perspective on life and death. It was interesting how he stood up to Kate too and wasn’t willing to change his mind about going with Locke to the barracks just to be with her. I think that was true Sawyer form…true Sawyer in the guarded tough guy way.

John Locke: This man can heal! I tell ya…how does he manage to heal from everything. Even that broken leg from last season only slowed him down a little bit!

Jacob: Who is Jacob? Well this time we actually got to see an outline of a figure in Jacob’s chair. And an eyeball in the window. I just don’t know what to think about the whole Jacob thing. I hope they continue to give us answers on that. I am very very curious.

One of the best things about this show are the questions the viewers are asking. One of the worst things about this show are the questions the viewers are asking. The best thing that the creators of this show did was create an end-date. Knowing that there are 48…well now 47 episodes left creates a nice place for the viewer. We know that they have a plan to write a satisfactory ending to the show and we will somehow get closure.

Ok thats all for now! 🙂 I hope you all enjoyed the episode!

(Also, can I just add…How bad was that Eli Stone show??? SOOOO BAD! Any show that centers around George Michael is bound to be bad. And then it was even worse than I ever could have imagined. If this is what the Writer’s Strike is forcing to be on tv I might die…)

    good review, i really love this show. I watched 3 seasons last summer on dvd and streaming online and am like you, i wish i could just watch all the episodes at once. But its such a good show its not all that bad i guess, gives me something to really look foward to on thursday nights. I’m really confused about hurley saying he shouldn’t have sided with locke. Its like, you think locke is right but then hurley says that so what in the hell is about to happen. Ahhhhh.

    Adam- I am so confused about what Hurley said about trusting Jack. Something really big must have happened between the two groups.

    Something Creative – I have definately caught your stuff online before too! 🙂 Thanks for visiting. And that guy was seriously creepy!

    Annie – Thank you SO much for the shout out on your blog. I have added yours to my Lost blog bookmarks! I literally haven’t stopped thinking about the new episode since last night, and even just posted more theories and questions because I had to get them out of my head.

    Have a nice weekend!
    – Jo

    the article for sure starts out “the body of Jo…” but that doesn’t for sure mean the “jo” is the beginning of a name i suppose. and the last name doesn’t fit, but it doesn’t fit for Ben either…… hmm……

    PRISON BREAK TOMORROW!!! 🙂

    Come on! ELI STONE! Its so bad its good!!! any show that has that black lady secretary in it, as well as the guy who played in that show ED is going to be so cheesy its good.

    Give it another try! If anything do it just to stare at the main character from Hackers and realize that Angelina Jolie was married to that! lol
