OK, "Lost" is starting to annoy me a little
Evangeline Lilly (Kate)
Don't get me wrong, it's still probably my favorite TV show. And I will definitely watch tonight's episode at some point, after DVR-ing it due to other obligations. But I have a bone to pick with the show's powers-that-be.
The Others are too much in control, too pervasive, have too much of the upper hand. There's just too much Others.
Our survivors can't seem to catch a break against the Others, and that's getting old fast.
I do think The Others are interesting, and I'm intrigued to know more about them. But not at the expense of face time for all the other, established characters I've come to care about.
And I'm already tired of Jack, Sawyer and Kate being in captivity. I want to see The Others facing some real setbacks. I want to the scoreboard to even out a little--right now the Others are in total dominance.
And I want to wipe the smirk off that Ben guy's face. I'm beginning to miss the days when he was getting thrown around by Sayid.
And what's with Juliet? She comes across as sweet, loving and caring, but apparently she wouldn't think twice about blowing Kate's head off.
Reportedly, "Lost" viewership was down somewhat last week, which disappointed the show's producers. Producers, let it be a lesson to you. "Lost" fans--well, at least "Lost" fans like me--love the show in large part because we care about the main characters, the survivors of the plane crash.
I understand the need to introduce new blood, new storylines, etc. But again, not at the expense of the characters we know and love.
At least tonight's episode will bring back some of the mainstays that we haven't seen so far this season.
Meantime, this USA Today article helps you track down some of the characters you haven't seen in a while.
