So far, so good. I would like a question answered for every 5 that are raised, though. Too many questions leave plots dangling. (Adam & Eve, anyone?)
They also need to shore-up some of the inconsistencies. Why would they search for Vincent in the dark, but not search for Claire at all? Why didn’t they break out the guns when Hurley went looking for Rousseau?
The show gets an A for: atmosphere; potential; attention to certain details; allusions to philosophy, literature, and pop culture; the weaving together of the Lostaways in their pre-flight lives.
It gets a C+ for consistency. In many of the great series of the past, the first year or two is often spent on shakedown. I’m hopeful that the success of the show will let them hire another producer/editor to help keep things straight.
I love the fact that many of the questions are still left unanswered (Adam and Eve being a plot point planted early, designed for us to forget about, only to reappear later) I don’t want too many answers just yet, as I love the speculation. I love this show for the blend of characterization and plot (like the best seasons of Buffy) There are so many characters, and each one becomes more and more complex (Charlie a killer? How will he deal with that?!) The backstories are great for characterization (Jin being noble) and those plot threads you mentioned that tie people together. I am hooked, and I hate the fact that I have to wait for 6 weeks now…
