To those critics who said last night’s installment of LOST was the weaker of what was most likely supposed to be a two-hour season premiere (pre-WGA strike), this TV Addict says, “What are you smoking?!” Last night’s episode was, for lack of a better word (since my head is still reeling with questions) incredible. And thus commences my senseless ramble which I’m cleverly calling last night’s LOST LOVEFEST.
Loved the reveal that these four mysterious strangers are coming after Ben! Loved new castaway Daniel Faraday’s line, “I’m not in charge of packing.” Loved the polar bear skeleton! Loved drunken pilot Frank Lapidus who was supposed to fly Oceanic 815 (Why exactly did he miss that flight?). Loved Sawyer mocking Locke’s Ghost Walt vision (Who hasn’t had the occasional ghost vision themselves?). Loved the fact that Miles Strom is a Ghostbuster (Cue theme song: Who ya’ gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS!). Loved everything about Charlotte Staples Lewis (Accents are sexy). Loved the Oceanic 815 phone number casually posted on the television (Who tried calling 888-548-0034?). Loved the fact that Ben has a man on the boat (Who’s got money that we’re seeing the return of Michael next week?). Love the fact that Locke asked Ben the one question on every fans mind from day one “What’s is the Monster!” And better still, that Ben’s answer was a very sincere, “I don’t know.” (Does he really not know?). Loved the fact that rescuing the survivors of Oceanic 815 doesn’t seem to this mysterious foursomes “primary objective.”
In fact, the only thing I didn’t love about last night, is the realization this morning that we’ve got to wait six more days to find out what happens next! What did you LOVE about last night’s LOST?
