Re: Time Predictions

Sorry, I've given up on predictions. I spend all this time looking back at past episodes, doing some serious math, and then I come up with what I think the length will be and C&J just post a podcast with some arbitrary length that has no basis on past show lengths and I'm left feeling empty.

Re: Initial Reactions

Although Lost may not have gone in the exact direction I would have preferred (too much deus ex machina magic), I appreciate that I never know quite what to expect week to week. I guess maybe the best way to write an unpredictable story is to have no idea what you are doing yourself. Both Genius and...

I feel like this episode was telling us that we are not going to get many of the answers we want. The light was an analogue for the tree of knowledge. "Mother" stated that all men have a little light, but they always want more. We, the audience are those who seek enlightenment. We are not going to g...

I am glad that they summarily put the issue to rest as well. I did not want to see this become part of the plot. They tied it to a Nikki and Paolo reference as well. I am not sure if they needed to be part of this retrospective kick that the show is on, but it was very efficient.
