Season Review-Lost Season 3

by whifferrack | created - 19 Aug 2012 | updated - 02 Jan 2013 | Public

Overall: 9.5-amazing

I know I'm reviewing this very late, but it's helpful to see someone's opinion after watching this season on DVD. During its broadcast, fans complained, especially during the first 6 episodes of the season. They were tired of the retreading of story lines, and the frustration reached a boiling point, especially with a 3 month hiatus coming up. Now, after watching this on DVD, I must say I actually enjoyed the first 6 episodes a lot. I'd liken that to my watching it on DVD.

After the "prologue", 2 fantastic episodes got the show back in its groove. Not in Portland and Flashes Before Your Eyes were two magnificent episodes, especially the latter. This season helped make Desmond grow on me a lot more. Of course, though, being a 23 episode season, there were bound to be duds. Stranger in a Strange Land and Tricia Tanka Is Dead were terrible, and thank god I could immediately move on to the next episodes.

Man From Tallahassee kicked off a brilliant second half, especially "The Brig" to the end, the best stretch of episodes Lost has produced. Let me just say, Ben Linus is one of my favorite villains ever. Emerson did fantastic work with him, and he was the "villain you rooted for". I also loved O'Quinn's work this season, as well as Fox. The acting prowess on this show was incredible.

I felt that Season 2 was a bit lacking in story, and I felt the writers didn't really know what to do. Now, with The Others, they had a lot more to work with. Juliet was a great character as well, and it was interesting watching her conflicting feelings over the whole situation with the pregnant women. I really loved her scene in DOC with Sun.

Charlie, one of my least favorite characters before this season, was also someone who grew on me. I started to feel bad for him, especially with his impending death. His actual death scene (and farewell episode, Greatest Hits), also struck a chord with me. It was emotional and really beautiful, actually.

Now, the finale. One of the best finales I've ever seen. Tense, exciting, brilliant. Especially, the whole flash forward was unexpected. It was a perfect capper to an almost perfect season of television. Of course, there's now a lot more questions that Lost will never answer.
