Surfing Through "Lost"
SPOILERS FROM LAST NIGHT'S EPISODE: And creatively, "Lost" may have just gone off the rails as well. I know the finale when Michael suddenly killed two characters and wounded himself to give one of the Others a chance to escape was supposed to make us gasp in shock and excitement. But it was easy to spot a mile away. (Michael's been away for a week; how did he suddenly get back? And if he just spied on the Others and didn't get caught, why was he half dead and gone for so long? Etc.) And frankly, my initial reaction was Damn, you better not drink and drive if you're on the cast of "Lost." The two women killed were played by actresses who probably proved to be more of a pain than they were worth, what with headlines and Michelle Rodriguez going to jail for a week. I've been bored for a while, there are so many weeks of reruns that I forget what's been happening and now the big plot twist is just eye-rolling. I'm sure I'll keep watching, but it's suddenly become a duty rather than treat. PS -- Oh and the stupidest plot twist of all them expecting us to believe Sawyer and Ana Lucia slept together and he didn't notice she'd taken his gun? Give me a break.
