Lost in Retrospect: What Kate Did

Posted in Lost in Retrospect with tags , , on July 24, 2010 by Bronzethumb

The beginning of a long, long, long run of weak Kate episodes, and not even a few brilliant dramatic scenes and some exploration of the Hatch can keep this one out of the negative column.

Lost in Retrospect: Collision

The Ana Lucia episode. It’s even weaker than I remember.

Lost in Retrospect: The Other 48 Days

Posted in Lost in Retrospect with tags , , on July 18, 2010 by Bronzethumb

This was an interesting episode, a mix of the new and interesting with the old and redundant, fantastic characters and less-than-stellar ones, and ultimately gets on the must-see list because of its important mythological developments.

Lost in Retrospect: Abandoned

Posted in Lost in Retrospect with tags , , on July 16, 2010 by Bronzethumb

Fantastic ending aside, this was a very “meh” episode. It didn’t grab me, it didn’t rivet me, it didn’t especially entertain me, and the most interesting part of the story was very deliberately kept to a bare minimum. And ultimately, I don’t think this episode provides anything that couldn’t have been covered in a “Previously On…” clip.

Lost in Retrospect: …and Found

Posted in Lost in Retrospect with tags , , on July 16, 2010 by Bronzethumb

This great little Tailie-based thriller of an episode did more to make the Island scary in its 42 minute run than the whole of the previous four episodes did — and they weren’t slouchy.

Lost in Retrospect: Everybody Hates Hugo

Posted in Lost in Retrospect with tags , , on July 14, 2010 by Bronzethumb

This is exactly the kind of pick-me-up that Lost needed at this point in its run. Sure, it’s not exactly heavy on mythology and doesn’t advance much except the Tailies storyline, but Hurley is such a great character and his episodes have such a fun tone (at least, by the standards of Lost) that it winds up being one of the more flat-out entertaining episodes of season 2.

Lost in Retrospect: Orientation

Posted in Lost in Retrospect with tags , , on July 13, 2010 by Bronzethumb

Season 2 of Lost kicks off properly, in my humble opinion, as the first story of the season comes to its actual conclusion and the paradigm of episodes to come is established.
