Seriously. We’re STILL doing this whole “sky-lights-up-and-everyone-travels-back-and-forth-in-time” thing 14 times an episode — after 5 friggin’ episodes!!!! What a convenient excuse for not writing. Just in case we need to get someone out of a tough situation, we always have a backup plan. Things go wrong, we turn the sky white, screech the ears up and, presto, we move somewhere else, easily getting us out of that hairy situation. Then, guess what happens? We get into another hairy situation! But, no worries, the sky will go white any second now! Ooh, my ears are screeching. Oh boyo, luckily it’s happening again. Ain’t Lost grand?
I hereby impose a full ban on the sky going white on Lost. And if you hear a giant screeching noise ever again, the show should end because they’ve officially run out of ideas.
And, by the way, can we focus on 5 characters instead of the 78 that we’ve had the pleasure of not caring about each week? Streamline!
We’ve seen you do the best and most original show on television before without the gimmick of time travel. Do it again. Keep the sky black!
Otherwise I’m gonna hope that my sky turns white and I go back to season 4.
