This episode sucked! We got NOTHING!!!! NO ANSWERS what so ever. The only moment I liked was the 5 seconds that lasted with Bernard hearing Boone n the radio. There was no monster. There was no hatch mystery. They're were like, "Oh look a door. Neat. Oh a glass eye that must not be anything. Oh some people took the kids, what should we do. Oh, a radio. Oh some weird sign on the wall, who cares. Dum de dum. Then they wasted a good 5-6 minutes on reviewing last week. H-E-L-L-O...we already saw Jin run from them, we already saw Sawyer being carried, we already saw all of them walking through the friggen jungle. Then Ana shoots Shannon and Michael is like, "huh, what was that noise." This epi was a waste of my time and excitement. I am so disappointed. I thought Invasion was better than tonight's LOST and that is saying A WHOLE LOT!
Wow...did you watch the same episode? You didn't think it was interesting that they had a spy amongst them? Or that we understand why the tailies are so mistrusting of Jin, Michael and Sawyer? Or that they've been basically "on the run" from the Others since the crash? It's unfortunate that you think all the answers should just be laid out there for us.
Hater. This site is for JJ fans. Go watch crap like DH. That seems suited for you low level of intelligence. Or Idol, Alias, Prison Break, or Invasion. JJ's projects are meant for those of us more advanced on the evolutionary tree.
Here you go again. This is the second thread in which you have told people that you accuse of being "J.J. haters" to go watch "stupid shows" like "Alias." Uh, dude, "Alias" is a J.J. show. Hello?
Second, the only reason someone would get worked up about an episode of Lost like this is because they care about the show. I disliked this episode too, because I loved last season and the first episode of this season and feel it's been veering off track. I am not a "hater." I vincent because I love.
Wow ... I actually really loved this episode; it reminded me a tad of the Law & Order/Without a Trace thingy when they did the days count down. Personally, I thought it was extremely well done and found myself trying to remember what was going on at the other side of the island (parallel universe idea) at the time.
i loved this show as well. it explains how the tailies became who they are. it explains their attitude toward the island. they were 'attacked' quite early on, while the losties were relatively 'safer'. the plotlines for the tailies were definitely developed in this episode. maybe you were expecting more of the losties? this was a veer from the 'normal' Lost storytelling, and I think TPTB did an excellent job.
I try really hard to never post anything negative to anyone else on the board cause I think it sucks to be put down for your thoughts, but I can't believe you would think this was a bad episode in any way, shape or form. I was actually on the edge of my seat in spite of reading the spoilers about what would happen tonight and thought that TPTB did a great job of putting 48 days into one episode. We have to have some conclusion to the Tailies' side to understand them before we throw them in with our other Losties. otherwise, they just might as well be window dressing. And I totally agree with "rabgal"...it made me try to remember last season at that time frame....a great comparison in their survival to date.
I also believe that this show was great. I almost fell over when Bernard answered Boone on the radio. It gave us a different view of the island and the tragedies that they faced. It gave us a better picture of what is going on. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I have never written a TV show therefore I'll continue to let the professionals handle this show.

I've heard several people say this, but it had no effect on me, as it was a completely predictable non-event as far as I could tell. I was waiting for it to happen -- not necessarily with Bernard, but it had to be one of the tail survivors. We knew that when Boone talked to the voice on the radio last season the voice said "no, we're the survivors of Oceanic 815", and the most obvious, most logical reason someone would have said this is because they were part of the same plane crash. We've known for a few episodes now that these people were on the same plane, Oceanic 815, so it was logically one of them who talked to Boone on the radio. So all we got was a scene of something that was completely logical and comepletely unsurprising that revealed no unforeseen secrets about the show, unless I'm missing something? What was exciting about it?
