The more I watch this show the more I come to realize I shouldn't like it as much as I do. So many cliches, so much predictability. Did anyone not expect Sawyer to show up at the golf tournament? And bet against Jack? But, then we get "I'll take that action" and the smiling and Jack suddenly not smiling and I find myself loving this show beyond reason.
Sayid's backstory seemed to get less attention than I expected. His sudden turn from loyal Republican guard to 'traitor' over the love of a woman who he hadn't seen since childhood seemed superficial and unbelievable. Then there is the mystery of how he got from Iraq to Australia and was presumebly heading to the U.S. Yeah, I'm sure we'll get to that later.
Danielle - the wisest person on the island or should she be undergoing a little electro-shock therapy herself? Sayid seems to believe she killed her husband and the others out of madness, but what if they really were sick? What if she and her group were phase one of some grand experiment?
Locke and his little knife fixation is creeping me out again. And how did he happen upon Ton Cruise's cousin?
Michael may not be the best parent in the world, but even I couldn't fault him for leaving Walt for a few hours. I don't care if Claire was sleeping that doesn't constitute leaving him alone.
I'm liking Hurley more each week and the show can use some comic relief. Jack: "Things could be worse." Hurley: (pause) "How?!" Plus, he was right they all needed to blow off some steam.
Another favorite line was Charlie to Michael "You didn't hear about the polar bear?" Dom has some great comedic delivery. And I also appreciated that the show acknowledges it's own outlandishness.
Oh, Shannon was tanning herself. Yep, glad to see she keeps contributing week after week. :p
So, what the hell is on next Wednesday that we have to wait two weeks for the next episode?
And before the clock strikes 12 and I'm late, Happy Birthday!!! to abbagirl. If it makes you feel any better, the first Bridget Jones was better. ;)
