Who is that man
2 August 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

When 'Lost' was in its prime, it was must-watch television. Remember first watching it, found it remarkably easy to get into, was hooked from the start and was on Season 3 by the end of one week. The general consensus is that the final season is a disappointment and cannot disagree.

Season 4 was a solid season, with high points such as "The Beginning of the End", the three part finale and particularly "The Constant" and the only disappointments (though they were still decent) being "The Other Woman" and "Eggtown". "Because You Left" couldn't be a better way to start Season 5, definitely among the stronger 'Lost' season openers and one of the most confident and most settled. The episodes between that and this were also good to great, with the weakest "Jughead" still having a lot of great values.

"He's Our You" is a very good episode, albeit not one of the show's or season's best. It's not one of the most original episodes in terms of story and other episodes do much better in advancing the plot, events and general characterisation, can understand the "filler" complaint.

Also miss Desmond and Locke. Having said that, the episode is not dull and thought-provoking, providing new mysteries and questions as well as some answers. Everything here grips, past and present and things don't get too confusing. The young Ben stuff was intriguing.

There are surprising moments and also illuminating ones, Sayid is developed well and what is learnt about him doesn't give the impression that we are going round in circles.

Also found "He's Our You" to be an episode with enough entertainment value, tension and emotional moments to satisfy, though other 'Lost' episodes do all three better. The more dialogue-driven parts is a case of it being thought-probing, relevant and adding a lot rather than slowing things down and rambling.

Can't fault the performances, which are superb all round. Michael Emerson has yet to put a foot wrong and Naveen Andrews is terrific, for me some of his best acting in the role. Josh Holloway is also fine.

Nor the stylishness and atmosphere of the visuals, nor the effectively understated and chilling use of music, smart writing and the controlled direction.

In summary, very good but not great. 8/10 Bethany Cox
