No posts here in a few weeks... I wonder what others think of the new season.
So far I think it's interesting enough, and I can't say I'm dissatisfied exactly, but the show seems to be headed toward an ending that's almost completely disconnected from the show's beginning. More and more the focus is on things that are only now becoming important -- the temple and the people in it, for example, the lighthouse, the Jacob/Esau situation.
I'd rather see the story starting to work toward more of a resolution to the stories of Jack, Kate, Sawyer, Locke and the rest. That's not to say they can't still pull this off, but the emphasis these last two seasons seems to be toward characters like Daniel Farraday and Charlotte and the people in the temple, who feel added-on and not a central part of the story's mythology.
