Oh, no ! They killed the film editor again. And the icescream has already melted.
17 April 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Even if the pilot wasn't good at least it managed to bring back some old memories of the first scary films. The problem with this episode is that it had the same flaws and didn't bring anything new to the table. So after watching it I don't see the point of going back to it. The characters didn't grow on me, some of them are really annoying and their behaviors so predictable, the editing was even worst than last time when I thought it wasn't possible, the script is only a bunch of ridiculous scenes filmed one after the other, it's everything but scary… Last but not least the previews revealed so many things that it shows how much the show is actually empty.

It wasn't even entertaining, there was nothing enjoyable about it and I can already see the viewers escaping the island one by one. Do yourself a favor, don't waste your time watching it. It just doesn't worth it.
