Lost

April 24, 2008

The wait is finally over.  Lost returns tonight, after a five week strike hiatus, for six hours worth of episodes.  I thought this day would never come.  And yes, I know so many of you out there hate the show – but I don’t.  I love this show.  Sure, it can be slow, it can be deliberately vague, it doesn’t always answer questions.  Even I wanted to break up with the show during the first six episodes of Season 3.  But the show came back, starting with the spring opener, “Not In Portland”, and only got better from there, ending with “Through The Looking Glass”, a game-changer if there ever was one.  (I don’t count the Bai Ling episode.) 

And now, in Season 4, we’ve continued that trend, hitting a high note with “The Constant” – the best episode of the series to date.  In my opinion.  And now we head into the final stretch, an hour longer than we’d expected at the beginning of the strike.  Bravo, writers, for writing the finale not for time, but for story.  And bravo, ABC, for giving the show the extra hour it needed.  With only two seasons and five episodes left, I’ll take all the extra Lost I can get.
