I've read articles about LOST marks getting tired of the show yet they
continue to watch it every week. The show still gets good ratings. I
quit watching during season 2 mainly because it was becoming nothing
but a pointless, slow-moving tease with no direction which also just
kept pouring mystery upon mystery instead of explaining anything.
I watched last week's and last night's episodes and have to say LOST
is actually starting to pull it together. I think the writers realized
the show was at a critical point where they had to start explaining
stuff in order to keep the viewers and ratings.
That being said, I think the final explanation as to what is actually
going on will be a huge letdown.
Lastly, is the wheel chair bound character Ben Linus basically a rip
off of X-Men's Professor X? Last nights show suggested he can
influence the will/control of human minds? That also reminded me of
the character called The Mule from Issac Asimov's brilliant sci-fi
