Becoming more dissaffected with lost *spoilers*

Posted in blog by petegent on February 27, 2009

Like many people I’ve been watching the latest season of lost with great vigor after wondering how the hell they were going to sort out the time-traveling island connundrum or get back to the island.

But after watching last nights episode, courtesy of the pirate bay I’ve suddenly become a bit dissapointed or dissafected all over again.

Until now it seemed like they were really going to answer a lot more questions about the island – what is it, why can it travel through time and they manage to tell a story in a really uber way through flashbacks through time. I really got the sense that it was building towards some “god help us all” climax.

With last nights episode we basically got to see john locke doing his usual man gets humiliated and forced into doing a ritual of rights to appease the island and somehow widmore and ben becoming more “likable characters”.

Honestly I now I just don’t know anymore – series 4 and 5 have been largely better than 2 because they’ve had both distinct baddies and distinct goodies; and a clear sense of the plot building towards some major event.

Suddenly it’s gotten all soapy and fillerish with no new major plotline to catch onto after many of the oceanic 6 have gotten back onto the island.

Oh well, we can only hope it doesn’t choke and go back into the dark ages of series 2 and 3.

    I’ve been pretty disappointed with recent episodes too. It seems as if they are running out of ideas and at this rate it will crash and burn once the ratings slide even more
