Lost 3.14 “Exposé”

with 4 comments

I have mixed emotions about this episode.

First, I always love it when shows start off with beginnings that make me wonder if I’m on the right channel.  I figured out pretty quick she was on a TV show, but still, initially I questioned if I had mistaken.  How classic to have Billy Dee cameo as himself….I found that funny.  Hadn’t heard anything about it either!

I’m going on memory here, so I apologize if this is out of order or I have a mistake.

The Good:

  • The first half of the episode, when I thought they maybe had worked with the Others.  I guess that was just too easy…
  • Bobby Biggs, AKA the science teacher who blew up in Season 1, was back…merely to introduce the spiders….
  • The splicing in/re-filming of scenes from Season 1 and 2 to establish Nikki and Paolo were actually there the whole time.   The show seems so different now.
  • Sawyer’s cracks about “Who the hell are you?” over, and over…..and over.

The Bad:

  • So apparently, Nikki and Paolo still served no purpose.  Did the producers kill them off simply because people were annoyed by them?  I have to wonder whether or not they really meant for them to die, or were forced to write it in.
  • The twists that were revealed, at least partially, by the previews.  Seriously, when Charlie started talking to Sun, and when they accused Sawyer, I already knew those would happen!
  • The under-a-minute time given to Ben and Juliet…they’re footage was better than most of the other flashback stuff combined.
  • Like I read on another blog…TV Squad, I think…..didn’t the producers say Nikki and Paolo would be forever remebered after some huge revelation in this episode?  Not so much…..

I still enjoy watching this show week to week, but it sure seems like this season they are promising so much, but delivering very little.  Given, the end of Season 2 establishes a high level to live up to, I still think that at times I could come up with better storylines than these.

We’ll see what happens….And yes, Kate gets yet another flashback next week.

  3. I think they’ve pretty much confirmed that at least one of them is definitely dead, and one MAY still come back, either in a flashback or some miracle of being unburied.

    Either way, Alex, I’d appreciate if you wouldn’t make pointless accusations. I think it’s clear I watched the show….

    No more nasty comments please….just intelligent ones. Thanks!

  4. Yeah, um Alex, I think being buried by 6 feet of sand would kill anyone.

    This episode was pointless. It was filler. My wife says it was a bunch of flash back to the island so that they didn’t have to do any original shooting (saving time and money).

    The only purpose it could fill is something I have suspected for a while. I don’t think that any of the dead people are dead for very long. I suspect that season 5 will have them all come back to life some how. Hey it’s the mystery of the island, anything can happen. 🙂
