Lost
23 January 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

It looked like we've had to wait forever for the 5th season to come. I don't know if it has to do with the long wait, but in the meantime I watched other series and completely forgot about Lost.

I think this is why I had a hard time watching this show again. To fully get back in the storyline you may have to start again with earlier seasons before you start watching season 5.

The second episode of the 5th season was less complex and better than the first one, but I still have mixed feelings about the new season. I'm hoping the writers can take these feelings away in the next episodes.

The flashbacks in the 2nd episode helped a little bit, but it could make the show more complex as well. I didn't like the part in Season 4 about moving the island, and now they introduced time traveling. Is this to get you back in the story or because it's interesting? I think the first one, they're trying to hard to make up for the long wait.

However, Lost is still one of the best TV shows out there and I'm convinced it will get better again with every episode, but for now I don't think the long wait for Season 5 was worthwhile.
