Blogging "Lost"

Tonight "Lost" returns to the air. Hooray! It was about the only show last year that I regarded as "must see TV".

I'm now watching the review pre-show, which seems to be focusing on the backstory segments of the show. I must say that these have always been the least satisfying part of the show for me. One tolerates it because, in the first season, viewers need to get to know who these survivors are. But as the second season develops, I would hope to see less and less of these flashbacks.

If the writers cannot develop sufficiently interesting stories on the Island, with all its weird accoutrements, I will be upset. It will be a failure of imagination.

Here's hoping for a good opening for season two.
