  • Really bad episode for Lost.

    This episode was still better than a lot of stuff on TV, but by Lost's standards, it was scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    -Loved the hot shots of Shannon. Gratuitous, but I loved it.
    -The flashbacks except for the ending one were in fact mildly interesting.
    -I did like Sun's reaction to Kate and Jack talking about the guns.
    -Did love Rose and her prayer. Very nicely done.
    -I did like Jack finally seeing Kate for the ***** that she really is.

    -It was disturbing how nobody seemed to care where Claire was. Not even Charlie. Very disappointing.
    -Idiotic bank robbery plan though if you think about it. One of those TV-only things.
    -Not much really happened.
    -I hate Kate and her episodes anyway.
    -Didn't care about all of that Haliburton stuff between Sawyer and Kate.
    -The whole episode was just shockingly contrived for this show.
    -Oh God, I hated the stupid plane thing with Kate.
    -Oh God, Shannon singing. So weird.

    So dear writers of Lost, please kill Kate off. We don't care about her. Maybe if you had picked a good actress, we might have, but....nah, on second thought, I don't give a crap about Charlie despite the fact that Dominic Monaghan rocks.
