I kind of agree too. It was a pretty good episode, but Im frustrated that an episode called, "Cabin Fever" only had about 5 minutes of the cabin in it and it was kind of anticlimactic too...
I did let out an involuntary, "Whoah" when the last line of the episode was said though.
I gave it a 7.

Which means it can't stand on it's own without the wight of the series to support it. The best episodes, rather, are stand alone episodes like "Flashes Before Your Eyes snd The Constant. Anyone unfamiliar with the series could watch these cold and come away totally satisfied and yet intrigued.
This is my third favorite eppie of Lost so far, after Man of Science, Man of faith and Through the Looking Glass. I only had a top 2 and was hoping to get a #3 soon, and this was awesome.
I don't look for eppies that stand alone when it comes to the series - probably the best example of a great stand alone eppie was Expose, but it really added nothing to the show, however this episode blows the mind and puts a lot more of the puzzle together in surprising ways. That's the kind of stuff I like.
I liked the episode, but I guess I was expecting something else. I gave it an 8. I have more questions now, but I'll be happy just to go for the ride the writer's are taking us on. I thought we would recieve answers about the "nature" of the cabin.....but maybe that is to come. I'll be watching it again before the next show. I am enjoying this season very much, and I think the writer's are topping themselves each time.
I loved it, I thought it was extremely well written and Terry O' Quinn among others gave a terrific performance. It was really thought provoking, there are so many little tidbits to mentally digest such as a seemingly growing time differential between the rocket and the Doctor's body washing up on shore to teh cabin of creep and Claire's bizarre behavior. I was disappointed the Captain was killed off the show, I thought he could have been a good ally to the Losties. I was extremely pleased to see Richard back and Abbadon is teh evol, lol. Great episode, I can't wait until next week.
10 out of 10. This is a contender for best episode of the season, I loved every minute of it.
It was great to see Richard back and the scene in the cabin was fantastic. I thought for a second Christian was Jacob but I guess not. Ben and Hurley sharing the chocolate bar was my highlight of the episode.
