Lost Discussion: ‘I Do’

Jack makes a decision regarding Ben’s offer; Kate feels helpless when it looks like Pickett is going to make good on his threat to kill Sawyer; Locke discovers a hidden message that may help unlock the island’s secrets.

That’s it for 2006 and Lost. The show goes off the air till February 7, 2007. In it’s place, ABC will be running the pseudo-Sci-Fi show “Day Break” starring Taye Diggs.

    Really good episode. What Jack did surprised the hell out of me. I’m kind of jealous of Sawyer too :P

    So the message on the stick seems to be a big clue, I wonder if they are in some fake underground dome.

    Poor Cap’n Mal… always getting drugged by his wives.

      :-) I was disappointed though, that Fillion didn’t portray the character more different from Mal (though Mal was never that smitten by anything).

      Also, did anyone catch the promise? Ben agreed to get Jack "off this island", but as Sawyer was shown, they’re on a different island, so I’m pretty certain that when it’s all over, Jack will be put back on the original island, though with events unfolding the way they are, that applecart may be upset now.

        That’s the first thing I said…. Ben’s promise doesn’t mean much… but I really thought it was cool that Jack is cold-hearted enough to use Ben’s life against the Others. Problem is, Kate knows where they are and that running is almost completely pointless.

        And another thing. This dual-mini-season thing is utter crap. I hate it when shows do this. Lost was the only reason for me to watch TV on Wednesdays and not I have no reason, so I’ll be doing something else.

          I can’t agree more! They just barely got started with "the fall season" and it’s over. I’m half tempted to not come back to it.

          I’m conflicted. I like when I get, say, non-stop runs of Prison Break or BSG for months, then non-stop 24 or Stargate. But then, I have to wait that much longer for new eps. The worst part, as with over the summer (which is now devoid of in-case-you-missed-it reruns due to reality programming), is that you can forget so much of the plot, especially the little things they don’t recap.

            That’s why, rather than a multi-season story arc, I would prefer shows to be composed of several mini-series 6-8 episodes long. That gives you enough time to do a good story in depth, but not so long that it’s impractical to watch it again, or that’s so spread out you can’t remember key earlier parts.

    i’m really bummed
    i love this show but this season blows. anymore it doesn’t take much for a show to get dropped like a hammer. the more they seem to veer off in directions that lead to more questions without answering a few old ones just alienates long time fans.

    the x-files was able to get away with this for a long time as it had it’s one off shows intertwined with x-myth eps. this show is different and has to show fans they aren’t stalling and actually know where they are going with things.

    introducing interesting characters and killing them off without really explaining much as to their importance is the literary equivalent to treading water. i hope the writers listen to fans and not just the studios so they can perhaps fix this…

      introducing interesting characters

      Like Ensign Ricky and his girlfriend? That was *painfully* out-of-place. You can’t just introduce more survivors because you’re killing off all the ones you’ve already written.
