I’ve got a bit of an obsession with LOST. In part, it is because I cannot seem to catch up or understand 99% of the show. I have seen pretty much every episode, yet last night’s pre-episode primer taught me more than a thing or two about all these characters, plots and subplots. {Did you know you can watch the episode and the primer free online?} I’m thinking JJ Abrams confuses himself every now and then. The one thing that’s remained consistent in Abrams’ style is if you work on the show and get arrested in real life, you can say adios to la isla bonita. Take that Ana Lucia!
Last night’s episode was a great jolt back to the world of the Dharma Initiative. I am so pleased they are finally giving a few details on who “the Others” are, why people are on the island, and how Ben (aka Henry Gale) is able to control all his minions. I think if I was a TV star, LOST would be my cup of tea. When they got to the beach and saw it was 2 miles away? Kate and Sawyer went looking for a boat. I would have stripped down and dived in, happily swimming away and leaving all that craziness in my wake. Then again — they eventually paddled furiously back to the island on which they were initially stranded. It isn’t like life got easier on Island A. Without Jack and Sawyer, who became the new Lord of the Flies?

P.S. How is it that Juliet’s hair looks so great on the island? Hello? Is this a humid-free island paradise, because someone didn’t tell Kate. Even Sun has extra body — and I’m not talking about the pregnancy.

P.P.S. I think I may need this.
