I haven’t reviewed Lost since Episode III back in October. I started getting frustrated with those first six episodes. Too much going wrong, such as the addition of Paulo and Nicki, and the lack of attention to many very important characters, all so we could get to a climax that, well, wasn’t all that climactic.
In any case, we took twelve weeks off and started up again in February with some excellent episodes. And last night, in Episode 11, we learn more, or so we think, about the Dharma Initiative and the Others. We meet the eyepatch guy we saw in the ? Station. We thought at first he was the last surviving member of the Dharma Initiative (that is what he told us) but he ended up being just another one of the Others, (the Hostiles, as Mikhail Bakunin called them—but is anything that he said true???) And this is where I am somewhat disappointed in the writers of the show. They promised lots of answers by episode 11, but the answers here seem to be given by a liar, and as such, can any word he said be trusted? Was any word Ben said when he was held prisoner true?
These small issues aside, the show is excellent, and a joy to watch.
