Let’s say you ate Papaya for the first time and that thing was so delicious the experience stuck with you. Well. What usually happens is that you’d be more likely to endure tasting several nasty Papayas in search of that great experience again than let’s say, someone who had tasted the stuff for the first time and only had a mediocre or poor experience.
THAT’s how I feel about lost... and in season 3 it’s frustrating. The great experiences are spaced further apart then in season 2 and to top it off they actually have a filler episode!
Overall, there is less sense of dread and less mystery. Instead, there is more island politics and Jack-Kate-Sawyer Love Triangle.
Thankfully there is some great stuff here, like Sun and Jin character development through flashbacks. Also, Hurley has some good moments in this season too.
I’m hoping to get back to the great Papaya I had experience in season one in the next season... Otherwise I get the sneaking suspicion I’m going to feel guilty about all that time I spent watching this.
