I have been hooked on Lost for quite a while. For the first two seasons I enjoyed the ensemble cast, the flash backs, the puzzles, and the inexplicable. I forgave some of the aimlessness that crept in for a while. Season 3 things started to slide into a nagging doubt that the writers were just making stuff up. Now, part way through Season 4, I am pretty much done. The show has turned into a soap opera with inferior writing and storylines.
During the writer’s strike, I discovered the Wire which I had somehow missed. That show is arguable one of the best ever and it may have raised the bar so much that Lost was doomed this season anyhow.
The final straw is ABC’s new promotion for the upcoming show.
“week to week lost only gets better and better”
“thursday an all new Lost is one of the most unforgettable hours of television you’ll experience this season”
Really? I am pretty sure I am not alone in watching and thinking lost is only getting crappier and crappier.
Honestly, this type of faux testimonial should not be allowed by the FCC.
