LOST has finally made its return, and what a return it was. The series wasted no time picking up where it left off, casting our beloved characters like dice on a gameboard of danger, revelation, and mystery. The three hour premiere event ran at near overload proportions, beginning with a game changer and ending with a character twist capable of sending us all back to the drawing board – or some chalkboard in the corner of a dank basement. Before we get into dissecting the episode, what do you say about tonight’s event? Sound off via polls and discussion. Haven’t seen it yet? Get out of here! You’ll be spoiled!
One of the big debates amongst critics has been whether or not 5.02 “The Lie” was a keeper or not. A lot of reviewers gave it low marks. Personally, I think the episode was good but just different enough in a sense of style to be somewhat jarring as a second half. Great stand alone, ill-fitting second half. But tonight is all about silencing our critical sides, right? This is about raw fandom oozing out of our finger types. LOST is back, and off to a great start. Sound off.
