  • The island story is flat-out boring and it almost feels to be filling in until the shows the next flash-forward.

    I'm not sure how I feel about flashfowards. On one hand, if they are used correctly, they give insight into the life of future surviors and can be very emotional. On the other hand their's "The Econimist." This episode abuses the power of flashforwards, by having a island story that has little to do with the overall picture of Lost. It practically depends on the flashforwards to fill in the rest. The flahforward is well put together however, and the end scene is particuraly OMG! worthy, but the island story really didn't do it for me. Hopefully the producers can focus mre on the island story for the next episode.
