It's 16 mins into LOST. And I am longing for the days of when watching people stuck on an island involved a professor riding a coconut bicycle to make electricity and the Harlem Globetrotters would stopping by. No thinking needed.
One thing that is annoying is that there is so much to remember that when they show something that the producers must think is a "wow" because the music gets dramatic or they break to commercial, we're supposed to be on the edge of our seat, and I can't even put it in context.
For example- the big foot statue that was underwater- Was that above ground before? The guy who approached Hurley- Uh, who is that? Jacob? I thought Ben killed Jacob. If Juliet set off the bomb, then how come the metal is still in the hole? Ah, that was Jacob, who did die, so Hurley must see ghosts (although before we thought he hallucinated at the mental hospital). Again, not necessary to play dramatic music and cut to a commercial when you show us Charlie. We know he was on the plane. I still don't know who the eyeliner guy is.
