Lost is one of the most interesting television series in the history of the medium. I got into Lost after it had been on TV for more than two seasons and I have been riveted ever since.
It was the human interest elements of the story that got me hooked, more so than the science fiction aspect. However, the time travel focus now has me begging for more.
My anticipation for the season premiere was bigger than I have ever had for any other show (even Mad Men) in my life, and it didn’t disappoint. Seeing Richard Alpert take a punch was more satisfying than it should have been, and to see Benjamin Linus cowering like a little girl was great.
Other highlights: Hurley taking charge; seeing the Temple (finally); learning that the smoke monster is actually evil itself, not just a tool of evil; and seeing Charlie again.
However, I’m really trying to grasp the idea of two sets of characters; the version of those who stayed on the island and the version who landed in L.A. After Juliet died and then Saied died, I was thinking that the island version of the characters would die off one by one. But then Saied came back to life.
One thing that appears to be real is that Jacob is dead.
