I cannot believe we're not discussing "Lost" more.

As much feces-like television is being broadcast these days - such as American Idol and Moment of Truth - it boggles my mind that we're not talking about Lost.

It's simply amazing - every week has been an outright home run. And for fellow fans of popular shows like Prison Break, 24, Smallville, etc., you know how nearly impossible that is.

Do you think that each of the actresses has a bikini clause in her contract?

Juliette looked mighty uncomfortable coming out of the water wearing her bikini last night.

I've watched Lost since the pilot episode and for the first time...

the story is starting to come together. It's really making sense, but I know there are some surprises in store for us. Amazing show and probably the best on TV!

They mailed it in last night

Actually, I can hardly remember what happened... Which is scary because it wasn't even 24 hours ago.

Overall, the new season has been great. They started to lose me a little bit in season 3, but I'm back on the bandwagon.

Agreed - I liken this to the third X-Men movie vs the first 2

Although I like all three in the series, the third was a definite departure in that there was little character development in favor of action. Not bad, just different.

I compare this season to the prior seasons in a similar way, which again, is not a bad thing.

I really enjoyed last night's episode - it was definitely a "set-up" for some coming stories, but I liked it.

In all fairness, I was working on my laptop while watching, so every few minutes I had to ask my roommate what was going on. I like where they're going this season, last night's episode just didn't grab my attention.

I thought the time-travel episode with Desmond was terrific. I was glued to the screen for the full hour.

Haven't watched last night's yet. Agree that it's been spectacular

What's so great about this season is that every episode is almost a movie within itself. My wife had been off the Lost bandwagon since that stretch of slow episodes mid-season last year, and the Desmond time-travel episode sucked her in big time.

Season 2 was where I thought each episode was too interdependent on the whole season.

Season 3 was absolutely riveting the whole way through, and this year, as you mentioned, each episode manages to have a satisfying ending and a cliffhanger for the following week.

It's just a great show.

Season 3 was NOT absolutely riveting the whole way through

With about five or six episodes left in Season 3, every Lost viewer I knew was ready to write off the show, including me. Then the Season 3 finale--arguably the best finale I've ever seen of any show--made up for everything.

I hated - HATED - the finale. However, viewed through the information we have received so far this year, the finale from last year most definitely isn't how the story "ends."

But I really enjoyed the rest of Season 3.

I own all three seasons of Lost on DVD

The first 9-10 episodes of DVDs from Season 3 will never be opened. Plodding, mind-numbing, worthless.

That's how I felt about most of Season 2.

The back story focusses on one of the least interesting characters in the show. It was, by far, the weakest episode of the last dozen.

Last night's episode explained the freighter and who's behind it, pulled Desmond's asshole father-in-law to-be waaaaaay deeper into the story, featured a near mass-extinction, and had the whole Julia/Ben back history put into an entirely new light and it was the weakest?

I know the show has been hitting a lot of doubles and triples recently, but if that's the weakest episode, I can't wait for the next couple. Apparently, the March 20th episode (S04E08) will be huge (ie. we find out who was in the coffin, major character death, etc).....

Hoping that Season 4 does not echo Season 3. Start strong, weak middle, then finish extremely strong.

Last night's episode could be the start of a string of weak episodes (plot development slowing to a snail's pace), or it could be an anomoly in a season that started very well and will continue to get even better. I'm hoping for the latter. I fear the former.
