Quotes

Locke: Are you using?
Charlie: What?
Locke: Heroin? Are you using it again?
Charlie: Kate sees a horse. Nothing. Pretty much everyone's seen Walt wandering around the jungle. But when its Charlie, it must be the bloody drugs, right?

Misguided attempt at doing something new
16 November 2007 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

I appreciate what Fire + Water is trying to do, but it fails in every way possible narratively. Other than that the show is well-scored, well-shot, well-acted, and all, and particularly well-directed by Jack Bender here, who does about as much with the show's haphazard attempts at surrealism as possible here.

"Fire + Water" is almost universally regarded as the worst "Lost" episode. Many factors have lead to this, not just the lacking quality of the episode itself, but coming after numerous similarly useless flashback episodes, and coming after the big cliffhanger the week before. It's simply not a good episode of "Lost".

It's not really the worst episode of "Lost". It's definitely more interesting than "Whatever the Case May Be", simply due to the focus being on Charlie and not Kate. "Stranger in a Strange Land" is possibly marginally better, but I'd still probably rather watch this than that. Undoubtedly one of the worst episodes on the series though, simply because it fails to be either a good character episode (the characterization here is terrible, really, and inconsistent) or a reasonably entertaining action-packed ride.

4/10
