Posted by therebelprince on July 31, 2009


This week, almost nothing happens on the Island. I know, amazing right? Second season of one of the biggest hits of the decade and not a thing goes down. But it contains some nice character moments, and we learn what Kate did, so it’s not a total loss. Read the rest of this entry »

LOST Rewatch: “Exodus”, “Man of Science, Man of Faith” and “Adrift”

Posted by therebelprince on July 16, 2009

The great LOST Rewatch has already claimed the life of a few blogs with season one, and understandably. While it was a great opening chapter to this sci-fi/adventure epic, its relevance is obvious to anyone who has seen the show and its questions have almost all been answered (to some degree). As we hit season two, however, we’re going to start sinking our teeth into the mythos of the series, which should give us plenty of questions to ask.

“I was waiting for you.”

LOST Rewatch: Season One Review

Posted by therebelprince on July 12, 2009

A prelude: I plan to do regular reviews for the http://lostpedia.wikia.com/wiki/Lostpedia:Rewatch Lost Rewatch as it goes along from now through January, but as this season functions primarily as a prologue, I’m going to do it all in one.

Jack (Matthew Fox) surveys the wreckage of Flight 815

When “LOST” began in late 2004, I was a regular viewer but with a doubtful glance. My issues with the show were many, but stemmed primarily from: an over-reliance on creator JJ Abram’s trademark act-outs and last minute plot twists; slow, plodding plot development; the convenient ignorance and stupid actions just as plot development could have been made; and the statements from the producers themselves that they had changed key plot details even in the pilot. To my (largely mistaken) mind at the time, it seemed that they were claiming to be crafting a lengthy narrative, but were in fact just making it up as they went along – and barely covering for that fact.
Five years on, and I concede that I was wrong… mostly. So below, as well as discussing the first season of LOST as a whole, I’ll be seeking to rectify some of those errors.
