Re: Season 5 Episode Rankings
The Life and Death of Jeremy Bentham
Follow The Leader
Because You Left
Namaste, Whatever Happened Happened, This Place is Death, LaFleur, Dead is Dead, The Variable
He's Our You
Some Like It Hoth, The Little Prince
1&2 Neither did much for me. 'The Lie' was easily the worst of the season, poor Hurley got a predictable hamfisted story, and Because You Left was probably the second worst Season Premiere in the series history (Tale of Two Cities). While outstanding in spots, too much redundant action and dialogue. 3. Jughead was a superb script and episode. 4. Little Prince was passable. 5. This Place is Death was really good. 6. 316 was one of the most disjointed episodes in the history of Lost. Half of it was tremendous and exciting, the other half was incredibly below average and...just odd.
The six episode stretch from 7-12 (TLADOJB-Dead is Dead) was probably as good of a run of 6 consecutive episodes in the shows history. Including the best Kate centric ever, a thrilling Bentham episode, a killer Ben centric and arguably the best Sawyer centric to date. He's Our You was a pretty great episode as well. Great stuff altogether.
13. Some Like It Hoth was what it was, passable, fun and it served to give us a little levity break. 14. The Variable was tremendous and 15. Follow the Leader was an incredibly good script. 16. The Incident was one of the best episodes ever, enough said.
