Has LOST jumped the shark?

I found the 4th season finale to be kind of a let down. I don’t know what I was looking for, but somehow I didn’t find it. So Michael sort of redeems himself but the freighter and everyone on it are now dead. Bye Jin. Gee, thanks Ben. And Faraday and a couple of the other extra cast members in the little motorboat? I guess they’re lost at sea now. The SIX started off as the EIGHT, but once Penny found their lift raft (of course!) and she and Desmond had their perfect moment and he’s never leaving her again, so Desmond’s out of it. For a while at any rate, until the final Widmore showdown is my guess. And Frank stayed on there too, so he’s off the show as well. Big Red stayed on the island; interesting that she was coming back to it again! Maybe she’ll be getting her claws into Sawyer now, after his altruistic jump to save the helicopter and his long swim to shore, where he washes up shirtless like a gift from the sea right at Juliet’s feet while she knocks back the Captain Dharma spiced rum and watches the ship burn. I smell bitchfight coming!

But after Ben worked the Windlass of Time TM and upped the Phase Space AnchorTM the island was sent to another reality. He paid the price and descended the temporal tunnel back to our timeline, so he’s off to do nasty things in the “real” world. And the only way he can get back is to take the SIX and the dead guy with him? Not likely.

So now Lostie Island is a gigantic tropical version of Dr. Who’s magic phone booth? Are all the castaways going to bond now with the remains of the Others (cue Jeff Probst: “Ok everyone, take off your buffs. It’s time for the Merger. Everyone put on huge amounts of eyeliner like Richard Alpert here") and jump around each week solving crimes and saving whales and dolphins? Shark jumping? Who can say, but I think the Fonz is off the water ski jump and in the air.

Loose ends: WTF is up with Claire and Dr. Daddy? After all she’s been through with the baby, and Charlie, and being kidnapped, etc., now she’s suddenly all languid and dreamy and given to ghost like appearances in people’s dreams?

Major disappointments: The man in the coffin is Jeremy Bentham. That name has got to be a scrambled message, so get to work. But the season came full circle: episode one had Jack visiting the funeral home and that’s where this season ended. Except I swear that in ep 1 he met the funeral director, and in this final ep he had to break in. And I had thought the coffin was much shorter the first time, not at all big enough to hold the large man we finally see inside: John Locke. What the hell? Maybe he lost his legs again.

Amazingly stupid: So now, several years later, a burned out, drunk, and despondent Dr. Jack wants to get back to the island? Why, because events there proved him to be totally wrong about everything? He can’t face the world without his giant ego? “There’s no such things as miracles John” says Dr. Brainwave. And then the big purple light fills the sky again, and poof!, the island is gone, leaving nothing but a quickly dissipating ring in the water. And a school of sharks, circling.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
