Have you heard? Tomorrow is the Wednesday (February 7) that LOST returns to TV for 16 uninterrupted weeks.
I think the show has lost some of its fans because of too many reruns in Season 2 and then a divided Season 3 (about three months, I think, between the first set of shows and the second set about to begin). However, the word is out that an end to the show has been decided so that writers can work their way toward it. No word on how many seasons they intend to have but it’s no longer open ended.
Anyway, just to whet your whistle, here is what Entertainment Weekly had to say about this Wednesday’s show:
It’s good. Really good. Like season-one, stuff-gets-answered, can’t-wait-for-the-next-episode good. To recap: Ben is bleeding out on the table. Jack is demanding the release of Kate and Sawyer. And the fan base is demanding some … forward movement. Well, how about the full-on Juliette backstory? Information about how the Others ended up on the Island? Super-creepy Dharma experiment sequences? Yeah. You know you want it. And by the end, you’ll be begging for more. Well, that, and praying that this isn’t just another tease from a show that always seems to start strong out of the gate. (Rating: A)
Are you ready? I am. And like the reviewer quoted above, I hope they don’t start strong as they did last fall and then sort of lose momentum in the shows that followed.
