Oh wow.... it snuck up on me, as much as something you've been waiting 9 months for can sneak up on you.  I kept thinking "Oh, that's not until mid January," but I guess that's NOW.

Having successfully avoided all off-season spoilers, I'm ready to revisit that world.  The fourth season was great!

I almost choked up at the preview. This "show" really affected me. I don't own TV, watched it on DVD and online, and this is one of those fun rare times when I can automatically relate to other people about a pop culture thing. Except that most people seem to be afraid of the show or have been warned away from it by dubious friends.

I would say the 3rd episode of season 5 was one of the better ones I've seen.  It's great to see how long-established story threads are intertwined in ways you didn't realize before.

I guessed some time back that Charles Widmore would eventually be presented in a more nuanced light, just as the show has started to show Ben Linus a little more sympathetically.

Yep, the new episodes have been great so far. Most recent was one of the best.

Four episodes into season 5, I think this is one of the best seasons yet.  They're starting to focus more on teasing us with gradual revelations of the mythological elements of the show's world, and less on character.  Considering that there really aren't too many more episodes of the show left, EVER, I guess they really do need to start moving the show forward more quickly.  I bet the producers and writers wish they could have a "do-over" on some of the more meandering episodes in season 2, now.  For a while, it seemed like nothing happened, and now it seems like fairly major reversals (oh, we have to go BACK to the island now?) have been fairly rushed along.

I miss the smoke monster...

When I die, I'm leaving my body to science fiction.

I just hope they get the island time-jumping finished soon as it's been going on now for a few episodes. Time to bring it to halt and move the story forward (no pun intended!) again. So far it's been decent. We'll see what they have in store for us. And why is it that faraday was shown way back but hasn't been explained yet in one recent episode? Not jughead (don't think that was the one, I think prior was it).

I guess you are happy now, since it is back in the latest episode :)

By the way, I see Lost more as an drug then entertainment. NO matter how bad it may be, I am always forced to watch the next episode, the whole series is designed this way.
I think the whole method is much related to TV commercials, every second is planned in detail, to get as many viewers as possible...I think it could be many times better if it wasn't so compact and commercialized, one hour episodes would be really nice to start with...

Immersion - I'm confused by your last comment about one hour episodes... It's an hour show.

The best way to watch Lost is on dvd - where there are no commercials - nothing to pull you kicking and screaming into commercials which are 5x louder than the show.

Watching online isn't too had. The commercials are considerably less annoying. 

And yeah!  Smoke monster is back!  Love this show.

We always record it and watch it later, skipping through the commercials.
Commercials would seriously ruin the enjoyment for me.

It is actually about 40 minutes, but with commercial and all shit it is probably 60 minutes.
I would not mind 80 minute episodes.. as I said, Lost is a drug for me, so the more the better :)
I would never ever watch it on tv, I am strongly against commercials it would ruin everything.
I always download it from either piratebay or ftp...

I also wish there was less melodramatic shit... it is just too much sometimes...I also do not like the back flashes etc..from their past life outside the island..
this feels like filler material... just to fill the void...
