What Sucks: Things That Suck About Lost V. 3: Jack Playing Catch With An 'Other'


Yeah, so I’m now waiting almost a week to watch the most recent episode of Lost on DVR, not a good sign for a show that in the past I couldn’t wait to see. It’s no secret that the show is going downhill in season 3- you might even say it’s the writers who are the “lost”. (Ha! Feel free to use that one, every journalist who writes an article on Lost next year!)

That being said, SPOILER ALERT, the latest example of suckiness creeping into the show is last week’s ending. It ended with a shocking finish, an undeniably horrifying and disturbing image that will forever be etched on my brain: Jack having a catch.

That’s your big mind fuck? For a show that prides itself on crazy, out of nowhere twists and turns (Hurly finds a car, the Other’s have a fully equipped operating room, a polar bear mauls Mr. Eko), I’m supposed to have nightmares because Jack tossing around a football with an ‘Other’?

Who gives a shit? There’s a freaking smoke monster out there.

We just learned Jack and Claire are ½ siblings, Kate, Sayid and Locke killed a guy to get to where the Other’s live, and the island is trying to off Charlie like he’s the President of Pakistan, and whoa, I have to watch next week because Jack “went long”?

Get in there and save him. Don’t give me that close up of Kate’s horrified face as she looks to Sayid and Locke confused and frightened- the guy didn’t give up any information to the enemy- he ran a slant.
