No specific spoilers here, but if you’re like me you still may want to wait until you’ve seen the episode to read this. There may, of course, be spoilers in the comments.
The new season of Lost premiered last night, and I and my fellow fan Clarabella chatted online during the episode, questioning every detail and pausing more than a few times to say, “wait, WHAT?” It was a great episode and this season promises to be full of Lost‘s signature mind-bending intrigue.
I won’t say anything too specific about it here, but I will tell you that writers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse have some very different ideas about time travel than what I learned at the feet of Dr. Emmett Brown.
Speaking of Cuse and Lindelof, the two princes of smugness had another one of their annual smirkathons the hour before the premiere – yet another self-congratulatory recap episode where the writers don’t so much recap the series as justify why, in their opinions, Lost is such truly great art. This time around I think it had something to do with “telling universal stories about the human condition.” Man, I love this show, but I almost love making fun of the writers even more.
But enough about that! Did you see the show? WHAT is UP???
