Quotes

Jack Shephard: Where is it?
Benjamin Linus: Okay, I probably should have told you that I saw her take the phone, but you beat me up, Jack. I owed you one.
Jack Shephard: What are you talking about?
Benjamin Linus: Kate took it when she hugged you... She found the right trail too, but you wouldn't listen to her, so I guess she's taken matters into her own hands. But look on the bright side - at least somebody around here knows what the hell they're doing.

"Lost" is back... feels so well
1 February 2008 | by ogqozoSee all my reviews

"The Beginning of the End" isn't one of those episodes that makes you fall down from your chair. It doesn't shock you like the last episode of Season 3 would. But it's still a great piece of movie work. The acting is great (with Jorge Garcia reaching his career high), the pace is snappy, and the scenario uses all the disturbed chronology fun for its own advantage. You get a chance to see all of the show's most important characters, a few main threads combine together well - it's a great introduction to a new season, considering we've had so long, 8-month hiatus.

"Lost" is still "Lost", so don't suppose you won't get as much emotions and mysteries as possible. There are a few new questions that you'll wonder about for some time. You also meet a new character, which is definitely evil and unsetting. "Lost" remains American TV's unique show - good to see it back, it's the only one of its kind.

My vote is 9. I really enjoy and appreciate it, but I am sure we'll see some better episodes this season.
