Like a sucker, I caught up on Season 5 of LOST and am watching 6 as it comes out. What a clusterfuck of a show! Which is not to say I’m not enjoying it – it’s nice to see answers forced out of a show that knows it’s coming to an end. I’m liking the flashback-asides, and wondering if and when they’ll tie into the chain of events taking place on the island … I could go either away.
The end of the fifth season was a huge sigh of relief – with the introduction of the two characters at the beginning of the season finale, the final underlying mystery of the show finally began to crystallize, and it’s really the only reason I’m watching the new season. At this point I’m comfortable saying I care very little for any of the characters (except Hurley, maybe) – they’ve been twisted and turned so much over the course of the show that I. Just. Don’t. Care. The only person who hasn’t really developed seems to be Kate, who as it turns out is just really irritating all the time.
Hmm, this was supposed to be balanced but I think I got derailed. Why am I watching this show again? I think it might be simply to see a payout on the investment of time I’ve put into it. Dang.
