    flashbacks were a disappointment
    I have to say that I was disappointed with this one. I just thought of so many places they could’ve gone with his character… this seemed like one of the least interesting ones.

    From a plot standpoint, however, I enjoyed how the show treated Jack, Sayed, and Locke. So, even if the flashback was lame, the overall plot arc still looks promising.

    next character, please
    Do I hate Sawyer or do I hate the writers’/actor’s potrayal of him?

    Sawyer
    I dunno, I think it’s an interesting character study to see how someone turns into the person they hate most. I’m not sure I buy him just dropping 300K and running like that, and he doesn’t seem like the sort who would go into torture me and let me die because I’m bad mode, but I don’t think we’ve seen everything here yet either.

    decent episode
    I agree that sawyer is opne of the least interesting people so far… Why? I think they removed his “bad guy” image and instead ended up making him look like a poor hurt little boy in a grown up’s body. They tried to make him bad and make us feel sorry for him at the same time… ended up muddling the image. I didn’t feel sorry for him at all and I didn’t believe that he could walk away just by seeing the couple’s kid. Not unless it was his first con… which it obviously wasn’t.

    Overall, it was still good because we saw the asthma and the very ending which both pushed the arc forward.

    Agreed with everyone else
    Wish they’d done more (or gone further) with Sawyer. However, as shown by “Moth”, they may go further back with the character and show more stuff about him.

    A fairly light episode, but the trailers for the next one look quite good.

    Anyone else read the “Diary”?
    Digging through the web site, I found a Diary, written by one of the “survivors” on the Island. Don’t know who the character is (the handwriting’s a little hard to read), but might have some insights or extra info for those of us following the show.

      i read the diary a couple of days ago, i’ve been following the show from the uk! :)

      i think you missed something in the show here, not exactly a spoiler in saying this, but you can see claire writing in something on the beach – I get the feeling it is her diary on the website

        actually, let me reply to my own post and say, no. this doesn’t really look like who i said it was. sorry! :) My guess is this is not a primary character. because a) there’s mention of “larry” asking her out, and b) if that major character were to die, the diary would stop pretty damned quickly :) i for one am glad that there’s a few extra survivors in the mix, it reminds us that there’s not just the 10 or so of them that we see all the time!
